Charge of the Mule Brigade.
' [On the night of October 28th, when Gen'l
Cleary's.Division of the 12tn corps repulsed
the attacking forces of Longstreet at Wauhat
chin. Tern., a number of mules, alfrighted by
the noise of - battle, dashed into the ranks of
Hampton's Legion. causing much dismay
among the Rebels, and compelling many of
them to fall back under a st pposed charge of
cavalry. Captain Tt,os. IL Elliott, of Geory's
staff, sends as the.following rendition of the
incident, which he gleaned from an interior
contemporary. Its antbStabip is not known
by the Captain.—Ez.]
Half a mile, bairn mile,
Half a mile onward. ,
Right toward the Georgia troop
Broke the two hundred
“Forwaad the Mule Brigade,"
"Charge for the Rebs 1" they neighed;
Straight for the Georgia troops,
' Broke the two hundred. , ,
'Torward. the Mule Brigade I"
Was there n mule dismayed?
Not,when the long tars felt
All their ropes sundered;
Theirs not to make reply;
Theirs not to reason why;
Theirs hut to make them fly. •
On I to the Geurght troops,
Broke the two hundred.
Mules to the right of them,
Mules to the left of them,
Mules also behind them,
Pawed, neighed and thundered,
Braking their own confines.
Breaking through Longstreet's lines,
Into the Georgia troops
Stormed the two hundred.
Wild all their eyes did glare,
Whisked all their tails in air.
SentCring all the chivalry there
While'sll the world wondered)
Not a mule back-bebtraddle4.
Yet how they all skedaddled
Fled every Georgian,
Scattered and sundered,
How they were routed there
By the two hundred.
Males to the tight of them,
Moles to the left of them,
Mules 1111 around them,
Paued, neighed, and thundered;
Followed by hoof and bead,
Fu'l malty IL hero fled,
Fain m the last ditch dead,
Back from tin 'rtss'skiw,"
All that WAS left of them,
Left by the two hundred_
When can their glery fade?
0. the wild charge they made!
All the world Wondered.
Honor the charge they made,-
Honor the Mule Brigade,
Lonpeared two hundred.
°No rent imaits this mouth ? This is
the third time Wails happened within the
year, go there myself, and get the
money, or 11l know the reason why'!"
Mr. Mathew Doane vra. in particularly
bad humor this raw December warning
Everything had gone wrong. Stocks had
fallen when they oue.ht to have risen—
his clerk had tipped over the inkstand on
hie tipeeial and peculiar heap of paper—
the lire obstinately refused to burn in the
grate-1n short, nothing went right, and
Duane was consequently and correspond

"Then don't stand there starin' like en

burst of irritation, and Jeukins disappear
ed like II shot.
Just half an hour afterwards Mr. Mar.

cum/name and settled down int.) a story '

Brazilian pebbles. and the duarsteps were
worn by much scouring. Neither of these
circumstances, however, did Mr. Duane I
remark, as he pulled the glittering brass
door knob, and strode tote Mrs Clarkson's
There was a small fire—very small, es
if every lump of anthracite was hoarded.

implements before her. sat a young lady
whom Mr. Doane at once recognized as

She was not disagreeable to look upon.

Mr. Duane started—the bout audacity
of this damsel in grey, with red ribbons
in her hair, rather astonished him.

""No. sir, it is not."

Olive's cheek had reddened and her
eyes flashed portentously. Mr. Doane
turned towards the door, but ere he knew
what he was doing, Olive had walked
quietly across the room, looked the door
and taken out the key—then she reanin
'ed her seat.
"%V hat does this mean ?" ejaculated the
a s tuelished "primmer of war.'
