they guard their secret, that it was not

the contest. that they quietly marched out

Immediately upon his return from Pitts

cruit a regiment for the three years' serv

Hugh B. Flemming (Captain 9th tr. S.
Infantry) declined the Lieut. Coloneloy,
and the subsequent action , of Col.:MoLane
in filling the vacancy occasioned by Flem
ming's dedination, did not meet. ith the
entire approbation of his subordinate
chiefs. The" Lieut. Coloneloy was .very
properly .coriferietr upon Major •Vineent,
but in the regular order of promotion,
'dept. Morgan should have been the Major.
If Morgan was not a suitable person for
the place-(as is very probable) then the
honor should. have been conferred upon
Capt. Morris, 'who was a gentleman in
every way eminently 'clualified to SID the
position. The Colonel, however, desired
the appointment of Dr. Louis Naghel,. of
Indiana, and to this his subordinates gave
as unwilling assent.
Major Nagbel was a gentleman of many
estimable qualities, and well deserved the
esteem and confidence of his Chief, as well
as the respect of-all others; but be was
not a citizen of Pennsylvania, was as des.
.titute - of militaey experience as any Cap
tale` In the regiment, and bad expended
neither time money in its organization
and had no claims whatever to the dis-
Unction conferred upon him. The-action •
of the Colonel iu this matter, might with
some propriety be criticised. However,
the great respect felt by the officers of the
regiment for their Chief, led to a quiet ae
qmescence in this arrangement ; and had
it not been for a similar- occurrence in
Mitro l 3. 1862. it would never have been our
unwilling task to chronicle the fact that
there was ever any misunderstanding be-
ween Col. - MeLane and his offleen.
February 28'h, 1862, 'lieutenant James
Steger, R. Q. M., resigned, on account of
physical__ disability.. According to army
regulations, the vacancy should be filled
by some one of the Lieutenants of the
Regiment. Col. McLane, however, lap
pointed to the place,'a man by the name
of Tuttle. also a citizen of Indiana, and a
brother-in law to Major Naghel. When
this transpired, unmistakable signs of dis
satisfaction became apparent among the
officers. These act' were without prece
dent in military affairs, and could only be
justified upon the presumption that the
officers of the line were destitute ot-ebili
tsi, and unfit for any 'grade higher than
they held ; and 'the imputation thus cast
upon them. they regarded turszojust. After
consultation, several officers waited upon
the Colonel. and respectfully represented
to him the views and feelings of his offi.
etre, with regard to. hix-reeent - 'arqmint•

log, but declined acceding to their wishes.;
and. Tuttle was retained as Quartermaster.
The Governor 'of Pennsylvania was - then

his judgment adequate tto bin rank, and

The regiment remained at WaShington;
on Meridian Hitt, until Oistober let; when
they marched over into Virginia, and fin
ally camped on Hall's farm, rear Ball's
Cross Roads, and weralnisigned to Butter-
Beld's Brigade, of Porter's Dishier!. of the
Army of the Bateman. in • which brigade
they remained during the entire war.
The brigade was afterwards known as the-
Third Brigade, of the First DiviSion, sth
Ann' Corps.
The regiment remained in ibis camp
until March 10114,1862„ and during this.
time Colonel McLane inaugurated and en

T. 's may be attributed altogether to the
..irable aystem of police adontod by the
Colonel. Cleanliness of person, Ofelothes,,
quarters, cookery, kitchens and drains,
was acruuulously exacted of All; •ot what•
ever rank,,or- station. Thin s , with whole
some food, healthy eaerclse, and almost
constant ' occupation, bad the effect to
bring the men out in' the Spnisg, strong,
healthful and robust, and well fitted for
the hardships of the coming campaign.
As a disciplinarian, Colonel. McLane was
gni peer of any officer in, the army. He
was unwilling thst'any branch of discip
line should escape due punishment, yet
was ever ready jo extend the strong arm
of his power to protect the meanest sol
dier in his ranks from of fiat oppression
er wrong. Butterfield Was called a great
disciplinarian, and in , some respect be ,
was, but McLane was itfinitely his superi
-or. in this, as well.aa in other .respects... -
Butterfield's ideas of military proprle- :
ties were correct, but his method of en
forcing them, on, men of inferior rank,
was often .contemptible and mean. Col.
McLane never by word or deed transcend
ed hie authority, or fell one jot below the
dignity of his rank. Inflexibly just in all
things; he adjusted the scales of merit and
dement wit h the ,o!cest. precision, end
wbsterver - disp o sition to insubordination
may have been entertained by- either of&
cers or soldiers, it was their greatest and
most profound study to Bedsit concealed
from the Colonel. He was feared ea. well
as respected and loved. -
March 10th, 1862. the army moved - out
from t6r, defmnas or washingtotii - ana- /I T "
ter encountering peril!, by sea and by land,
arrived in front of Yorktown on the sth
of April following. At the siege of York
town it became evident that Colonel Mc-
Lane occupied a high place in the adios
dim of his superiors. Enterprises Of mo
ment and matters of weighty importance
were intrusted in his hands, and were al
ways executed with promPtness, energy
and dispatch. Upon one occasion. acting
in the capacity of :'Officer of the Trench
es," he discovered that the enemy bad
-thrown up a breastwork sod planted a
battery in an advanced position; where
they could severely. annoy . some of our
working parties. He_ at once applied to
General Porter, the "Director of the Siege,"
for permission to carry the position by as
vault. An order to that effect wee issued
and the troops designated to carry it into
effect. That night, at 12 o'clock, the
troops, under the direction of Colonel Mc-
Lane, stealthily advanced until within
rifle range - of the breastwork, -and then
suddenly charged upon it with a yell.
The works were handsomely carried at
the point of the bayonet, and the guns and
gunners captured, without loss to the as
sailants. - During the siege the Colonel
often expressed fears diet Porter's corps
would constitute the reserve of the army,
and everything did seem to indicate that
such might be the case. The Regulars,
the Reserve Artillery, and the Pennsylva
nia Reserve Corps were successively at
' taehed to the command, and it became
-the largest and most unwieldy corps in
fheesmy. The Coloriel'aexperierice on the
reserve of the army in Mexico . had not
given him a very exalted opinion of inch
a position, and he very much feared that
be would again be compelled to occupy a
place in the rear. He desired to be in
the front rank, where he could grapple
with the enemy hand to hand, and strike
telling blows for the cause of his country,
and he regarded as a cheap article that
patriotism that expended itself in harm
less and empty words, where blows are
needed. •
The siege of Yorktown terminated May
4th, and the army advanced to the Chick
ahominy, and...there commenced opera
hone against the city of Mohamed. On
the 26th of May, information was received
that General Branch, with ten thousand.
_men was at Hanover C H r on his way
from Gordonsville to Richmond. Han
over C. H. is situated nearly/0 miles from
Gaines' Mill,. where the left of Porter's
&mos then lay. It is neither a town, sta
tion nor junction, but *simply the court
house of Hanover Co. It is a venerable
'structure, that has withstood the tooth of
time,the innovations' of pride, end the
vanalism of progress, for, more than a
century, having been erected in 1740.
The First Division of General Porter's
corps was ordered' out to attack Branch, -
and early on the morning of the 27th. in
a drenching rain storm, they started upon
the expedition. At about 2:30 p. in., they
arrived within probably, two miles of the
court house,' end- thine encountered
Branch. They moved forward at once to
the attack..,
Butterfield was di.
reined to triin the leit'flank.of the enemy,
and for this purpose pushed forward the
83d Pennsylvania, 16th licichiesii. and
17th Vow York regiments, the 83d taking'
