IJ Kap QUARTIIKS,
45th Regiment, P. V. V., ()amp near
Petersburg. Va, July 9, 1864
Friend Baker.—You must not pre
sume, that the title given me in your
editorial of July 2nd (Old War Corres•
pondent) has induced me to pen these
few lines to you. Although that infer
ence might be drawu, as it has been a
long time educe you have heard from me.
1 am not very susceptible to flu:U.o', nor
do I wish others to think so. I would
have written souuer, but being such a
poor correspondent, felt a little delicacy
in nicking the attempt again. It is al- '
ways expected fur others, to praise an
other's qualifications, and as you have no
regular correspondent in the 45th at
present, l. will endeavor to give a slight
history of what 1 have been doing since
joining the 45th again, also part, of its
doings in connection with the present
campaign. Nearly all of the NI ariettiaus
who are recipients of your paper, know
that I belonged to the 45th when it was
first organized, and also, that I was dis
missed the service, after having belonged
nearly two years, but, for what .cause,
very few h.iveever been rightly informed,
nor will they now, ascertain the particu
lars front me, suffice fur them to know,
that it was for uo dishonorable act on
my port. 1 always tried to perform the
duties imposed upon me faithfully ; if I
succeeded, the future will be my pruoi.
At present, I am occupying the position
of Sergt- Major. Some might think,tbat
military qualifications won for me the
position; others again, might infer, that
partiality may have had something to
do with it. One thing I can conscien
tiously say and that is, I did not enter
the service again, as a military aspirant,
nor have I since my last enlistment,
sought promotion, either by word or
action. No person, no matter how
small an amount of ambition he may
seem to possess. will refuse a promotion
when offered to him, no matter how in
significant it may be, as it generally
proves, in the estimation of his friends,
and the public generally, him to have
been worthy of it. In my case, I first
rose to Corporal, through the generosi
ty of my Captain (John B. peibler)-who,
I am happy to say, has proven himself
to be a good and brave officer. From
Corporal to Sergeant. That might have
been the heighth of my promotion,•but
the Sergeant Major (W. 11: Child) being
prorboted left, that position vacant. It
was hen given to me. In connection
with 'WiHie Child's name. I cannot but
make* few remarks, although flip par

particularly. and to all Who see this, I
ask not to think me partial, as I could
say nothing to their detriment as being
well worthy of all praises for their con
duct. %Vitt. El. Child entered the ser
vice as a private in Co. B. A company
composed more. largely of Mariettians
with one excel Lion, (Co. K.) than any
other in the regiment. For prompt at
tontine to his duties he was promoted to
Sergeant, from Sergeant to acting Ser
geant Major. lie performed the duties
of Sergeant Major until after the expir
ation of the furlough given to the. Regi
'tient for re.enlisting as a Veteran or- '
gunization, when he was made full Ser
geant Major of the Regiment. In this !
capacity, he served with entire satisfac
uutil he was again promoted. Hisl
last promotion, I um happy to state, was i
conferred upon him for bravery and merE I
torious conduct. Alas, how little did I
lie know the heighth of his promotion ,
had been reached, and that he was des•
tiued to occupy but for a few short days.
On the evening of the 21st, he received I
his commission, unfortunately the same
evening the regiment's turn for occupy-
I ing the front liue of pits came. (It has I
been customary, since our arrival here, 1
for one regiment to relieve the other
every 48 hours on the front line ) His
Captain thought it unnecessary for him
to go out, as he would have to go in
again in the morning and ordered him
to remain where he was. The .morning
of the 22d, about 6 o'clock, he came out
to where the regiment was, for the pur
pose of seeing the Adjutant to get a
certificate, or copy of the date of his
,promotion so as to get mustered as Ist
Lieutenant. He came directly to where •
the . eommander of the Regiment, (Cap
tain Theodore Gregg; Co. F.) and I had
( established Head Quarters. The Regi
l.ment at the time occupied a very dart-i
~ gerous position, and we, in particular,
had chosen a very exposed place, not
knowing the location very wall, as it
was our first trip, and that to,..made in ,
' the night. The instant we saw him, we
cautioned him in very strong - terms, to
get doWn lower as the rebel shaili shoot
' ers knew .our location. (they •being only
seventy-five yards distant in strong
force.) He not heeding our request. as
quickly as'we thought he Ought . to, I I
again, 'this time more emphatically than
before,, ordered him down instantly, but
the words hail scarcely left my mouth,
when a bullet from a rebel sharpshooter
pierced the right side of his head, pass
ing through his brain and coming ont on
,the left side. He was totally uncon
scious from the time of being struck, un
til hie death, which lasted about one
half hour. All this occurring between
the hours of 6 and? A: I. of the 22d
of June. Owing to the very severe fire
of the enemy : we could not possibly re•
move him until after dark, when his
body was taken to the rear, and decently
buried. His father was here and seen
his grave, and got all the particulars
concerning his death. I sent a Few rel
ics home with him, consisting of a Con
federate sword, manufactured at Macon,
Georgia, and belouging to a Georgian
Officer until the-time of his death, A
Mississippi bowie knife, very tastely
gotten up, and a Rattlesnake belt.
They can be seen at any time, by -call
ing at the house ofJohn Kline. ( runner.)
To return to Willie Child again. I can
truly say, that iu loosing him the regi
ment bus lost one of its bravest and
most efficient officers. Generally speak
ing his loss has been more deeply felt,
than any that has yet befallen the Regi
ment. All, both Officers and Privates
alike, had the highest regard for him,
not only on account of his military
knowledge, but for his good qualifies
likewise. In fact some of the boys bore
the same affection for him, that one
brother usually does for another: We
sincerely hope our loss has been his
gain. Our Regiment has lost thus far,
four hundred and ninety-seven in killed,
wounded and missing. Out. of the whole
number, all were killed and wounded
but twenty-eight and some of them, we
have reason to believe, may have been
either killed or woutided. There has
not been one general battle fought,
since the commencement of the preient
campaign, that. our Regiment hati not'
participated in, not. mentioning quite a
number of skirmishes, some of which
were desperate ones. Our records I
hope will prove , to the most incredrzfons,.
that the 45th has at liia's% tried'tti dbr her

knew at the time that justice was not

no complaint hoping that time would
come when we would not ticr forgotten.
That time has arrived at last, our corps

in the immediate front of Petersburg.
Skirmishing has been going on co4tin
ually, since our arrival, between the two
lines resulting in the loss of several" o
us daily, in killed and wounded. The
casualities are decreasing in number ,
now, owing to the strengthening of otta ,
fortifications. The space between the
two lines does not exceed more than
seventy-five yards at some places, neces-_
sarily causing us to make slow progress.
The people must be patient, and notes
pect us to accomplish too much, in a
short time. We are working slowly,
but surely, for the reduction of troth
Petersburg and Richmond, We could
have taken Petersburg any time within
the last two weeks, and can now, should
our Generals feel disposed, regardless
of the great sacrifice of many lives, who
are non combatants. The utmost confi
dence prevails io our leading generals
and particularly in Generals Meade and
Grant. The people of the north need
not fear the result, all we desire of them
is, to have the same confidence in our
Generals, we have. The health of the
regiment is .pretty good, considering
what she has gone through. But' two,
of the Marietta boys, are on the sick
list, Orderly Sergeant. Robert Carroll
a nd Private Eiltinur,d Stahl, both, I am
glad to inform you, are performing light
duty. Your humble servant has never
enjoyed better health than at the pres
ent time. I can only attribute it to the
many good things, the Government and
Sanitary. Committees have been furnish:
ing us. I have never known the soldiers
to be better provided for, than they are
now, probahly the heavylist of sick and
wounded, in this department may have
caused the change. Quite a number of
slightly wounded are dying, who at the
time of being wounded, Were ectsidered
perfectly safe. Every, now and then we
are receiving notice of the death of one
of our comrades, Only a couple. of
minutes ago, it was 'announced to me,
that Sergeant Fletcher Armstrong had
died. I could scarcely believe it, as his
wound, although a severe, one, we did
not think would deprive us of his ser
vices any great length of time. Ser
geant Armstrong was a good Soldier
one who always performed his rintY
faithfully, without making the slightest
complaint. Thus it goes, one after
another ofour brave boys are being call
ed upon to sacrifice their lives, for. the
maintenance of our Government. Who
are to blame, forthe sacrifice of so many
valuable lives? Shall it be the rebels
entirely: wbo have the manly courage to
stand up and fight us openly and who
are taught to believe that they are fight
ingfor a good cknse. No. we cannot
nor shall we, until some of the self styl
ed constitutional Patriots cease to be
continually finding fault with the admits
istratiou of affairs, and give us their
hearty supitort, if not by shouldering
the muske't, let it be, in words and ac
tions. Of the two evils, Rebel or Cop
perhead, I choose the former, and I as
sure you, all good soldiers will say amen
to my decision. For the former, we
can have some respect,,but for the latter.
and most insignificant, nothing but hate
red. Even the :rebels themselves de
spise them for their cowardly actions.
Now, Friend Baker, if you think this
worthy of publication. you can do so;
and in the future I'll occasiunly let you
hear from me. J. Al. K.

ABit of the "Real Romance of Life."
About 12 years since, a young wife
who, to all appearances, was living quiet
ly and peaceably with her husband, is
one of our large towns in Western N. Y.
took it in her bead to sever the bards of
connubial felicity, and try the larger
liberty of single blessedness again. So
when her husband was gone oue day,
she took with her a little girl, about
four or five years of age. the only child,
and departed for parts unknown. The
husband, when he became aware of the
fact, and found his house at once dose
late and lonely, instituted a vigorous
search for his discontented and abscon
ded wife.—After spending several hun
dred dollars and travellingseveral thous
and miles, ho found her in a distant
State engaged in teaching, She steadi
v resisted every entreaty to come back,
and clung to the little girl with the ten
acity of 3 mother's love. The husband
returned home with a heavy heart, leav
ing his wife and little girl behind. The
wife continued teaching, and in the
Course of a short time succeeded, by the
laws of the State in which she was liv
ing, in getting a bill of divorce from her
hasband whom she had left. In a year
°Atm she was married again to a map,
who had been an "old flame" and was
lividg with him not more than twenty
from the house she had desolated
a ye 4 or two before.—Several attempts
were made by the forsaken father to get
his girl, but the mother, in every case,
out generaled bite. Partly to make her
hold upon thli child more secure, and
partly from love ef adventure, the woman
and the new huJbaucremoved to Cali
fornia, taking, of course : . the girl with
them. Years passed, during which the
forsaken hust;and heard nothing of the
whereabouts of his truant wife, and his
. whom he so much loved.
Sometime the latter part of last winter,
this same woman, accompanied by her
girl, now grown to be a fine young lady,
came to the same city which she had
left about ten years since. She had
with her a bill of divorce from a second
husband and a snug two or three thous
and, of the shining currency of the Gold
It was not long before the first hus
band, who had remained single, was
found making frequent visits to the
boarding place of his truant wife, osten
sibly to see his girl. The visit became
more and frequent, until upon one eve
ning, not more than a month since, the
couple, so long and so widely separated,
were again married. They aii; now
living in the same house' which she de
serted, in all the apparent enjoyment of
their early wedded life. Thus strange
is the course of human lire, and thus sin
gular the course of human love.
The tnan alluded to in the above
truthful sketch, is a gentleman of intel
ligence and of high standing in the
community where be resides. The wife
is good looking and intelligent.
DRESS.-WO ore all more or less de-
sirous, on some ground or other, to win
the respect of our fellow creatures, and
the ways of winning it are infinitely di
versified. To obtain influence and posi
tion the majority of mankind will labor
an entire life, and continue to toil, in
some particular trade or profession, lon*,
after their actual necessities are supplied.
The merchant stilt speculates in the
mart, the seaman still plows the deep,
the gold hunter still digs the mine, and
the scholar still collects additional lore
by the midnight lamp. With this object
in view, men exert their best energies in
their several modes ; but there is one
mode which, in addition to all others, is
adopted, with rare exceptions, by the
whole human race : namely, an attention
to personal appearance, or an endeavor
to produce favorable impressions by the
fashion, or propriety, or becomingness,
or neatness, or splendor of their habili
ments. The effect of dress is, indeed, of
unquestionable importance. It typifies
a man's position in society, it indicates
his take. 'A perfectly suitable dress is
a passport almost everywhere. Wealth
or worth ill-attired is usually ill-received.
The man who dresses in a style below
his place and cifeumstances must expect
to meet mansernortifyingrebuff. Some
philosophers and men of genii's have
been gpeat slovens, and have affected to
consider attention to personal appear-
I once as effeminate or foolish. This mis-
Fitake is less common than it used to be,
and most of ouraliterati now dress like
gentlemen. A person dressed with op
