ON THE ADVANCE
1) EF BATED
After- heavy preliminary skirmishing on
Monday and Tuesday, Wednesday eve
ning's sun—the last of the year—went
down on us a badly defeated and slaught
ered army. Driven four miles back, our
right wing disastrously turned, our artillery
_despoiled, our Unnumbered dead and four
thousand living in the hands of the enemy
—most armies would have thought them
selves beaten, but for us it was only a ter
rible misfortune to be at once and on that
spot retrieved. Our field was to be lost
only with ourselves. I think every private,
every boy felt that. There, on that dismal
night—that frosty, bleak December night—
blankets, lvithout coffee or meat,
without a solitary lire (for we dared not to
make them,) among thousands of their
comrades dead, or what was worse, dying
ottr men threw themselves, without a mur
mur. or a whine, on the bare frozen ground,
and 'slept, waiting for the coming - of the
morning—and that morning uneheered by
a single ray of hope. I felt appalled there
at the bravery of man—l did homage at
that awful altar to the unnamed and count
less heroes. Next morning most probably
meant death, but not a man wept or
flinched. It was fighting pure and simple,
robbed of all its adventitous glory ; there
N,v d s nothing to excite, nothing to stimulate,
save desperation. The laurels of Chaplin
Hills and Shiloh were paling. It was bat
tle, UM the battle of the vanquished with
their flushed and confident victors.
Under the, gloomy pines—cold, numbed
and hungry, a chilly snow lightly covering
with equal fall corpse and sleeper—with
not a star to. break the dull, heavy clouds
that kindly wrapped the scene in darkness
—with no reinforcement• or human aid to
hope for, save their own unconquerable
hearts and . strong arms, the worn survi
vors of the shattered army of the Ctunbcr
laud laid down, ready for such
A NEW YEAR
as God might send them.
On• Thursday, in the cold gray dawn of
morning, with compressed lips and braced
nerves, theline was. silently taken up. I
cannot tell here the history of the long
hours of those battle-crowned days. En
gagements which in the days of Revolu
denary story would have made their lead
ers famous, and. blazoned through time in
school books and minstrelsy, were here
merely affairs of Col. So-and-so. Many a
bloody onset was only a reconnoissance.
Suffice it, on that day we held our ground
and gained a few rods. On Friday we
steadily pushed our lines over the red mire
of the clotted corn and cotton fields ; and
on Saturday, in black darkness and under
a driving tempest, we stormed the last en
trenchment; and swept the fluctuating
110 W 1T WSS DONE
To the reading world the taking of Mur
freesboro, the Western week of battles,
doubtless seemed a brilliant and glowin
achievement. The conventional idea is
doubtless, largely composed of blue and
gold uniforms, bucephalic charges, mad
dening music, sashes, banners, plumes,
and a general explosion of military the
atricals. In reality it was a contest of suf
fering, a trial of endurance.. We fagged
out the Southern blood. Coming to the
field worn out and prostrated, it was an
unequal strife in condition as well as num
bers, but the sturdy Northern yeoman had
made up their minds to stay there, and did,
till at last the impetuous chivalry, weary
of hurling themselves on a human wall,
could stand it no longer and fled.
The space between the town and our
lines was won inch by inch, crawling now,
and now charging through a sheet of flame.
Many a brave man fell merely in gaining a
few furrows. All the area of strife was
covered by sharpshooters,•and in the din
of conflict their rifl'•s were unseen and
noiseless messengers of death. A convul
sive plunge, and a stretched corpse with a
little red spot in the forehead told the tale
—somebody had fidien, is unconscious as
his neighbors of the direction of the fatal
ball. All the fighting ground was ankle
deep in mud, or worse. Charring was no
more an impetuous dash, but just a steady
march into the jaws of death. On this'
slippery, swimming ground we had to eat
and sleep. In the centre the approaches
were covered by trenches dug secretly, and
Occupied by night. Too low to stand up
in, too wet to' sit down in, the wretched
occupants had to remain bent and strained,
or to kneel over thighs in water. A single
peep over the embankment was a „signal
for a dozen bullets.
To complete the scene, the rear was cut
on; and provisions gave out. Corn on the
ear—about one ear to four men per day—
was issued to the troops, and the lighting
of Friday was made on that . novel diet. I
saw horses, not one hour dead, neatly
carved to a skeleton—all gone to steaks.
Hard crackers, Mess pork, and clean water
were the delicacies oftlie season.
Privation of every. kind. and degree was
the feature of the struggle and the lever of
victory Dirty, nutd-colored, lumpy,
shivering men did the work, and passed
through filth to glory. What read like an
intoxinting success was a hard-earned and
labcrious strife, and the dearest fruit of
victory was rest.
In strange contrast to the sombre hues
of: those long dreary days stands out one
scene so startlingly dramatic in its ellbut,
so wild in its heiliancy, that its recollection
seems like the flights of oriental fancy.
The closing act of that week of suffering
must be forever prominent as the picture
of the war- 7 perhaps as *the picturesque
battle piece of the war. Unique in con
ception, terribly splendid in its execution,
TILE ISIGUT BATTLE
of Javary li, is seared forever on the mem
ory of its actors,-and destined to an artistic
immortality in song and painting.
About dusk our sharpshooters stealthily
began to advance, fur the purpose of gain
ing the dark line of a dense cedar forest in
front. Their approach instantly caused a
sudden ' umination of the woods by the
rebel riflemen, studded behind every tree
and rock. If may mention here that when
we took this place of timber we found
platforms raised behind many of the largest
trees for their sharpshooters, enabling them
to extend their range and mislead the aim
Of our men. To stop this our artillery was
brought into play, posted in a huge semi
circle. The couchant lions opened their
throats, and shot and shell fairly rained on
the devoted spot. The earth literally trem
bled and quivered with the roar of a loin
dred cannon, and when we laid clown it
seemed to beat and trob with the pulse of
a living creature. instantaneous with our
attack 'leaven's wild artillery opened on
both armies. A furious storm sprang up
from the south. The wind roared and
crashed with the shell through the black
forest. The rain; streaming in torrents,
was driven directly in the faces of our
troops. We who stood only a flm - steps in
the rear of a range of batteries, were black
ened and almost strangled with the sun
eating clouds of thick moist powder which
were carried into our faces directly from
the muzzles of the guns. 1;y this time the
action was general. Charges were repeat
edly made on our infantry and batteries,
and at last our divisions Were set in inn
tin. The scene be ante weird and ex
citing beyond conception. The effect of
every movement of the contending forces
was written in eh:traders of deadly light;
the movements themselves were wrapped
in thick darkness. Itegiment after regi
ment of rebels advanced noiselessly to the
edge of the woods, and all at once a leaping
line of flame told their presence and object.
The fierce, cries of the victors, borne on the
angry gusts, told now and again of some
merciless bayonet charge, and one could
almost fancy that he heard, mingled with
them, the hopeless wail, of the lest in
I. have' read of nothing lubistory, I kite v
of nothing in the dreamland of romance
and imagination, to equal or approach the
intimial splendor of those three black and
bloody hours. I. thought of the demon
scenery of Dante, of the dark imagery of
Milton, of all the fiends that fought in hell,
until it seemed as if one could almost feel
the real presence of the Prince cf the Pow

VOLUME XL NUMBER 18.
For three boors this strange and un
earthly battle raged. The blackness of
darkness was relieved only by the deathly
flash of musketry or the volcanic glare of
artillery. The cheerful "forward—charge"
of the successful, the despairing almost
hopeless, "steady, men, steady," of the re
treating officers, could be heard from time
to time, and there was so - lathinginhuman
in the sound. The balance wavered again
and again. The tide of victory was marked
only by the advancing and retreating sheets
of flame, the red surges of a sea of death,
or, more dreadful still, by the relentless
shouts of the victors.aud the skrieks of the

lazy man, "not by way of' eneourv_ling

that he does this without pay, day in and

siders his time worth something, would

AN ANECDOTE WORTH. PRESERVING.—
A Paris correspondent guarantees the fol
lowing: "A Frenchman, a • prisoner in
Edinburg, having managed to escape, took
refuge in the powder magazine. When
thiPauthorities wished to seize him, then
found him sitting on a barrel with a lighted
match, and threatening- to blow up the
town. The authorities reflected prudently
and the 'result of their deliberations was
that it would be better to starve the French
man out. But they reckoned without their
prisoner, who loved good cheer, and was
