Christmas Hymn of Content.
BY RIBBLY MOBIOED
Enough, oh, world, of sobs and tears—
Of sad coriplaint and fame, and folly,
When Chtidmas, with returning years,
Brings back the mistletoe and holly.
O'er long we've hung o'er walls with green,
While in Our hearts we wreathed the sable :
'Pig time, I think, to shift the scene,
Ertriq.ittriy - Christmas" grows a fable.
What though we sat Obristsnas this, .
And try in vain to call the faces
That made, of old, our links of pride, -
And filled, of old, some vacant places ?
What tl.wriri—l say—some forms are missed
ThanieS.eaven that yet it brings us others !
Thoughlips are cold we once have kissed—
The diing:hters live—we spare their mothers
Sweet little Meg, with golden hair
That O'er her girlish forehead clustered—
May be er forty, fat and fair
With olive branches around her mustered.
What then! She's nearer mate, I trow,
For us—old boys—if hale and hearty !
At twenty years we loved her so?
Then love her twice as well as forty !
Those years—those years—they come no more I
No spring shall break their icy fatter !
Well, lot them rest !—Time brings us more ;
Who knoyvs but he may bring us better ?
The far-off hills seem blest and blue;
The hills we tread seem rugged ever :
Yet past or future naught can do—
To-day's the Archimedean lever.
The jpst—the past can ne'er return !
Well bow to fate and take the present;
We'll think our coals as brightly burn
As once the Yule log crackled pleasant,
Speed on, old Time !—we know your doom
More swift—more sure each year approaches
But never heed ! away with gloom !
Steam be it, since we've lost the coaches !
We've not outlived—no ! heaven forefend !
For all we err—the Christmas sorrow,
Nor lost them memory of that Friend
Fr#m whom an hour of life we borrow ! -
Bat down with dismal look and phrase—
The maudlin fancies, vain and hollow,
With sinful passions all ablaze, -
The past all wrong—and worse to follow !
All kindly thoughts—repentant deeds—
Live they—in every bosom burning,
'Fill Time fulfils its latest needs, -
And Christmas knows no more returning.
And then—enough of sobs and team—
Of sad complaints and melancholy,—
When Christmas, with returning years,
Brings back the mistletoe and holly I
The Battle of Draineaville.
For the Telegraph.)
We have been kindly permitted to make the
foNewing extract from a private letter written
by one of the volunteers of Gen. McCall's divi
sion, engaged in the recent battle at Draines
We have been doing a large business since I
last wrote you. On last Friday morning, before
daylight, we were ordered out on a foraging
and scouting expedition. We left our wagons
about four miles from Drainesville, to gather
forage, and we proceeded to the town. We
went into the town without firing a single shot.
We had not been there more than five minutes,
when we heard pretty sharp firing going on
with the skirmishers. In an instant the artil
lery came dashing down the road at the rate
of 2.40 when their largest gun upset. We im.
mediately retreated back about 400 yards where
the artillery was stationed, and soon got the
dismounted gun into its place when it got into
line. The rebels then commenced to treat us
to a dose of grape and canister. Our General
gave the command "down boys, down," when
immediately we fell fiat on the ground. We
laid there 10 or 16 minutes with their shells
bursting all around and about us. Our General
then came riding along and inquired what regi
ment this was, Lieut. Vance immediately re
plied, the bloody 6th. The General then said,
"6th regiment, charge and take that battery."
We immediately arose and charged across the
road into an open field, and then into a woods
where the rebel infantry attacked us. We im
mediately fired upon them, and kept firing for
an hour and a half, when they retreated. We
then made another charge for the battery but
were halted by Col. Kane, of the Bucktaik.
His object in doing et was to get his regimeNt
to storm the battery. Had this not been done
we would have taken their battery, but in so
doing they escaped. We chased them for three
miles when we gave up the pursuit. We killed
and wounded about 160 rebels, besides taking a
number of prisoners. •
That no doubt took a great number of dead
and wounded with them, as &ere was trails of
blood as far as we pursued them. Their artil
lery was badly cut up by our artillery and their
infantry suffered terribly. They had a great
deal the advantage of us, as they had their bat
tery planted and infantry concealed in a heavy
thicket, and we had nothing but an open wood.
If we would of had their position it would have
been impossible to drive us out. After they
retreated and we got into their ambush we saw
some horrible spectacles, every few steps we
came on some rebel who was either dead or dy
ing. Some of our fellows would help them out
of this world by running them through with
their bayonets. Some were without arms, some
without legs, some shot in the breast, some in
the head, and others in different places. In one
place I saw two rebels lying side by side with
out heads. Captain Easton came down in
the woods after his battery quit firing, to see
how things looked. He saw a hat lying there
and when he picked it up he found it
Contained the upper part of a man's
head. We captured more than we could bring
away in the shape of blankets, muskets, small
arms, &c. We also brought with us two cabs
sons. The second shot our battery fired struck
one of their caissons and blew it up. The way
they shot at us was a caution, most of their
beingshots too high. I was standing behind a
large chestnut - tree loading and firing, and
when I came out I took a look at the tree and
found it pretty well patched up with bullet
holes. I only got aim at one fellow and I as
sure you he bit the dust rather suddenly.
Sometimes I actually thought it was raining
bullets. Their forces consisted of the Sixth
South Carolina volunteers, Ninth South Caro
lina, Tenth Alabama sharp shooters, a brag
Kentucky regiment, a regiment of cavalry with
black horses, supposed to be the famous "Sack
Horse cavalry" and a battery of six guns ; the
hole under the command of General Stuart.
Our forces consisted of Gen. Ord's Third
Brigade of Pennsylvania Reserves Corps, com
prising the Ninth, Tenth, Twelfth and Sixth
regiments, five hundred cavalry from Col.
Bayard's First Pennsylvania cavalry, Com
pany A, Captain Easton of Campbell's Ar
tillery with four guns and the B oe kt a ii
regiment. The Tenth and Twelfth were
not in the fight, they were held back as
a reserve. Our cannonading was heard at our
headquarters and immediately reinforcements
were sent to us, but did not arrive till after the
battle. One prisoner told us the reason they
fought so hard was because they had been told
that three of their regiments could whip the
whey hole Pennsylv ania _b e .d.so Reserve He. said
ja i d m talk , t - the, : c
~:Umalhey wants io hav npfi e
a O.TI ,
he says he third& they have enough of us by.
thiS time. He says we fought more like devils
than men. He beloßged to the Alabama Sharp
shooters. He said they had not fired upon us,
and that their Colonel gave them orders to load
and come to a charge bayonet, and as soon as
we came out of the woods, to advance and fire
and charge upon us. But he continued, "it got
entirely too hot for them." He said it almost
hailed balls. "There," he said, "is where we
suffered most." • All this he told in presence of
our officers. I cannot describe the feelings I
had when I first went into battle. We all had
our canteens full of water when we first went
in and in ten minutes we had none. Then com
menced the suffering—every one wanted water
to wet his mouth but it could not be had. We
done without water all afternoon. Our killed
and wounded, Ido not think, will amount to
thirty. There was only one man wounded in
our company and he died last night—Mr. Wm.'
Tan Dyke, of Juniata county.
It is likely we will go out again on Monday
or Tuesday. Yours, J. W. ARMSTRONG.
PUBLIC ACENOWLIEDamerr OF THIS OFFICERS AND
MEN AT CAMP CIIRTIN.—Head-Quarters, Camp Car
tin, Dec. 21, 1861.—Professor Amaaa McCoy, of
Washington, Secretary of Cassius M. Clay's
Washingtin Guards, having kindly complied
with the invitation by the officers, and deliver
ed this day before the officers and men of Camp
Curtin, his eloquent and masterly oration on
"the London runes on the Rebelion and the
War against the National Constitution," deliv
ered on the National Fast Day, before the Pres
ident and Cabinet, in the capitol, and before the
Governor and Heads of Departments, in the
State capitol of Pennsylvania, the unilersigned
were appointed by the officers and men of Camp
Curtin to publish their acknowledgments
through the public press ; not only for the
gratification and delight, which has thus been
afforded to them by this splendid display of ora
tory, but for the statesmanlike manner in
which the orator vindicates our national cause,
against the misrepresautations and assaults of
hostile journals and statesmen in England.
While,this great oration thus fires the hearts of
those who are already in the field, the - officers
and men of Camp Curtin will feel strengthened
to know, three same fervid appeals are being
made to our people who remain at home ;
and that the cause of the soldier is being ad
vocated by so gifted and vowed* an orator.
In behalf of the officers and men at Camp
Curtin. S. A. MEREDITH,
Col. Commanding Camp Curtin.
