The Drummer Boy of Tennessee
[The following is a prose story of real life,
exquisitely put into rhyme by the fair correspon
dent of the Hew Journal, whom we thank for
the first reading of it.—Ens.]
When called the fife and drum at morn
The soldier from his rest,
And those to higher honors born
With softer couches blest,
There earns, a captain brave to seek,
Deep in her mourning clad,
By loss made sad, and journeying weak,
A mother and , a lad—
And they had come from Tennessee,
Waiting the beat of reveille.
Bur, 'penniless and widowed,
Her story soon she told:
The hand of traitor had not spared
Her huaband's life nor . gold ;
And now she brought her only son,
To fill the drummer's place ;
Thus young his daily bread to earn,
His country's foes to face:
Fier lie had learned, in Tennessee,
To beat the call of reveille.
The boy upturned his eager' gaze,
And with a beating heart,
He read upon the captain's face
Both kindliness and doubt ;
For he marked his tender years,
-Hie little fragile form
• " Don't be afraid," he boldly cried,
For captain, 'I can drum !
And I have come from Tennessee,
To sound for you the reveille."
"Mall, call the fifer I -bring the drum,
To test this noble youth !"
And well his part he did perform,
A " Drummer Boy" in truth !
" Yes madam, I will take your boy,"
The captain kindly said.
"Oh I bring him back," her quick reply,
" Thmumbered sith the dead •
And EDDIS Las, of Tennessee,
Shall play!for you the reveille."
'Twas many a weary march was made
To sound of drurn and fife,
And well the " Drummer Boy" essayed'
To play the "march of , life ;"•
Each soldier loved and'sought to share
Their part of good with him ;
The fifer on his back did bear
Acrois each swollen stream,
This "Drumnier Boy" from Tennessee,
Who beat with him the reveille. '
Bat, came the battle-shock, and doom
Of one great "Lyon" heart,
The victoria shout—the victim's!groan,
Fulfilled their fearful part 1
And, on that blood-stained field of woe
The darkness threw its pall !
The morning dawned on flying foe ;
When, list I—the "morning call !"
Our Drummer Boy from Tennessee,
Beating for help the reveille!
Upon the valley sod he lay,
Beside a lifeless:foe,
Whose dying hand had sought to stay
The life•blood's eblifing flow :
The quiv . ering drum yet echoing
. The beating of his heart—
The encamping angel, beckoning
From drum and fife to part !

Awaits the final reveille 1

"pitches into" dandy military officers, alleging
that they have mistaken their vocation.: It
tells the following story insupport of the charge:
"I case in point happened at. Cleveland one
evening during the past week. A young cap
tain stationed there on recruiting service, ap
peared at the theatre in a private box alone,
and during the first act of &three act play, wore
the full dress uniform of the regular army,
striking attitudes, Sto, to . Attract attention.
When the curtin fell he disappeared, but as it
rose upton the second act. he appeared again in
a cavalry jacket, much to the . amusement of
the audience, he thinking himself all the time,
the observed of, all observere—as indeed he was.
When the second act closed he was gone attain,
hut as the cattle rose on the third and last act
there he sat in plain citizens drew I. Had the
play been a five act one, the audience wondered
if his wardrobe would have held out ! While
the audience were all convulsed with laughter
at this grand coup de tluatre on the part of our
enterprising captain, he was chuckling , with
great satisfaction at the idea of, creating a send
sation and astonishing the groundlingts. But
degueldnes nen ea t clisputawkm as York would say.'
Every man to his task.; Dress is evidently .the
captain's forte. He should stick closely to,
resign bli commission in, the army and hire
himself 'out as a sign for a tailor.

[We aid permitted to print the following
highly interesting letter, written by the son of
one of our most respectable citizens, as a special
favor. Its perirsal will not fail to afford the
reader infinite gratification, as well for the im
portant information which it imparts, : as for
the ease and elegance of its style.. 7 -Editor 7rle
October 20, 1862.
When I last wrote you, I informed you that
we were bound, down to Galveston,/ Texas, and
you will see by the, heading of this that we
have at length reached ow .destination. I can
not describe to you,the appearance of the city
or the fortifications guarding the approaches to
the city, as we lay too far out for us to see either
of the, places distinctly, and as the city is built
upon a low, level plain, it is more difficult to see
the place. • . -• , ,
I will try and • d give you in this comm
don, ae near,as I can, a correct account of , this
our expedition, and the successes ,attending it.
I know full well that you at home 'have
often, very often, been mystified and confonnfl
ed by the many and conflicting• aoconnts con
cerning, the movements and operations of both
the army and navy, and we ourselves have been
not a little:puzzled to find out the true account•
01 our operatigns in.these waters, as there have
been almost as many different yarns publiibed
as there are papers published, and all purporting
to be true. .
We .left Ship Island on Sunday the 28th
of September, at 8 o'clock in.the' evening. The
Owasco and the Harriet Lane , had preceded us
some 12 and 8 hours. lt was a very beautiful
night, and whitesixtedalong quite slowly, and
at daybreak in the 'miming we ' made' the low
lands of the State of Louisiana. We went; in
the river by Pass AlOntre, and when we 'ar
rived at the head of the passee, we went down
the South West Pasi and Gaine.tolitichoi in front,
of Pilot town. Theobjeot of our visit up here
was to procure small stores for thecnrk 9 ' chlt
as tobacco and soap—two indispensable aiti es
to men of-war men. The Clifton was fy ng
here, and immediately after coming to anchor,
Captain Law, of the Clifton, came , on board of
rel and informed our skipper that the schooner
which had the stores on board had gone uplto
the city. Our captain requeeted him to getmi
der way and go up to the city and bring down
from the city , small Stores sufficient for the vbs
eels. The Clifton was soon under way, and with)
our surgeon on board, (who is our acting pay-1
master,) started for the city. We spent the'
day idly. In the evening about 8 o'clock the
Clifton returned and informed us that they
were not permitted to go up the river farther
than quarantine, on account of the yellow fe , rer
being in the city, but that the etoreship was
coming down, and would be down in the morh
ing. 1
In tir morning, pyre encingkii the shwa 'fibifi
,i 0.40 T here, and we commenced- taking - In opr
share of the needful articles, and by 8 o'cloCk
we had finished. .. - --, , .
At ten • ininutea past 4 O'clock We 'Were under
way bound out, in company with the Cliftoti.
Aothing of interest occurred during our. plea
sant rim across the gulf . We came to anchor
off the city of Galveston on the morning of the
2d of October. ~ We fOitlld here = the gannet
Lane, the Morning Light, and the Ratadina.
Immediately after coming to anchor, we die-I
patcharthe'Cliftoh after the Ovrasco, and the
,schooner, which ' are lying at the •Sablhe Par*,
with orders to bring them down immediately.
They have not arrived up to this IMiir, Ifi
o'clock P. X , Oct. 3d. .. ' I
The Owasco came in this morning front thp
Sabine Pass. Capt. Guest reports that thefelif
ton was lying at the month of the Pass. . She
could not go up during the night, but woulfi
,go up early in the morning end be down ti)
the city with the schooner sometime daring
the day.
Capt. Guest reporte.that the schooner Henri
James had went uprthe Sabine river some die
tance, where she encountereda battery of four
heavy guns. As soon as she was discovered Eta,
' rebels opened on her front this battery, 'an d
th e
schooner replied to the salutation. Capti
Pennington succeeded in planting a conple large
shells in the midst: of the battery, andthe Cue',
my ran away. A portion kW the schooner crew
landed, when they found that' the enemy had
spiked their guns. Oar men threw into the
river all the shot sad-shell, and brought off the
pgwder. Capt . Pennington suied in rap
taring a post rider with' a sonthern ' inall.-- 2 .
During the day.the ifcon( came in with the
schooner in tow, Oct. ; I
At 7 o'clock this morning the Harriet Lena
got'under way, and welt in aroma the bee-;
con, flying at thelore a flag of truce. When!
she got (as nigh as we souldjudge) oppositethe
fort, she wail fired at frem the , fort ; WO ; able
continued on her course until airt. reached the
head of Pelican Wad; *bete 'the came to
anchor. She lay at this point until 12 o'clock
m.,.when she. got noder way and came down
to her old anchorage close by us. Capt. Wain
wright came on bawd, and reported that a boat
came off and enquired the object of the steam.
er's mission. He stated the object of his visit,
and the officer in charge told the Captain that
he Would carry tiia message on shore, and haul
down the fLig at,tlie fort, and.if they declined
surrendering the city or tor Che would raise the
flag again ; but at all events .he would return
in one hour and a half. According to promise
the flag was lowere.d, and immediately rallied
again, which was the signal agreed ' upon that
they refused surrendering. . '
The Lane waited patiently until 'the time
specified above, when ~she- returned. Imme
diately after d i rmerall hands were called to up
anchor. We were soon under way, followed
by the Harriet Lane, Owasco, and the Clifton,
'towing up the schooner. We had a pilot' on
board which had been brotight , down from the
Sabine Pats. We moved smoothly up along
the breakers with our glorious old banner
;streaming beautifully from our three sticks: As
we approached Galveston Point, we could dis
;tinctly flOO with the naked eye large bodice of
men hurrying toward the fort. We• were mi
lted to quarters, our guns were all cast loose and
quiekly. prepa;ed for action. Our little boat
; was in a very few momenta in full 'fighting

We were opposite to the fort, a shot was "fired
id us from the fort, which was an excellent ,
true Shot. No sooner had the smoke curled
up from the muzzle of the rebel gun, than the
OwesCo quickly r eplied, 'which shot was return-.
rad from the fort: The fight now became •gen
eral. We brought our whole battery into play;
one of our hhells from Whistling Dick struck
the inualle ()lone of the gnus on the parapet.
, The 0 wasco threw a shell into the centre of
the fort, which was followed by Several others,

When they had got some distance fro& 1 the
fort; they halted and formed into line, i and ,
whilst they were form. d, a shell from otulrifle
gun struck and "burst right in the midst of the
men. We could not see whit daninge the ebell
done, but it hurried the men along a little
more briskly. This was the last we saw of the
rebels about the fort. The barracks was alerge
wooden building outside the fort. This the
scoundrels fired previous to their retreat; in was
entirely consumed. We kept under wiii for
some time after passing the fort, when a

Capt. Renshaw Made signal tor our vesseto

time after coming to anchor, the boat which
was discovered coming , down the bay, e,
