The latter pail of Dcccmlicr General KosC'
crans, slowly arid cautiously moved his forces
lo the front. On the 30th da) of Dcccmlicr,
(lie battle lines were facing each olher for a dis
tance of five miles nnd little more than a mile
apart. On the morning of ihe J 1st the battle
of Stone river, the first decisive liattlc of the
Comrades, I hate no heart to speak of this
terrible little in detail, nnd point out In ) oil
the agonies of our wounded and d)ing. There
was one action, however, in the engagement
that I wish briefly to refer to, in which the
1 iffy-lust played an imKrlant part, nnd In
which the wriler hid occasion lo lie present,
General Vancleavc's divivinn occupied the
extreme left wing of the Union army, opimsite
which, the rebels massed their forces on I'll-
day afternoon of tlic third day of the fighting.
General lltatl)'s brigade containing the Sth
and 21st Kentucky, nnd the 51st and 99th
Ohio, were at the head of the column. Inline
diatcly to their right, were General Grose's
and Fife's brigade and the line continued
almost unbroken for miles lo the light.
The battle line composed of these three
brigades crossed Stone river, a small stream,
and advanced half a mile to the centre of a
cotlon-field in front of Ihe enemy, that were
concealed behind a belt of timber on the oppo.
site Mile 01 tlic tielil. Uur skirmishers were in
Ihe timber. At 3 o'clock in the afternoon, they
were driven out, and the rebel skirmish line
was seen lo ad ranee to the fence and throw it
Then poured out of the timber mighty
masses of infantry, forming three lines of bat
tle, one immediately behind the olher. Uach
line of battle was six men deep. They marched
solidly and steadily tnwards4our three little
brigades, their lianucrs flying and steel glitter
ing in the sun. The Union line lay flat on
the ground and did not rise and fire until Ihe
eneni) was within a hundred )ards. The first
volley deliberately aimed shattered the front
line of the rebel mass. The second line dcliv
ered a volley, bayonets were fixed and they
braced up for a time, but tlic Rebels had loo
many bullets for them. They were obliged to
fall back and reached the river in disorder and
Ill the meantime sixty -eight cannons had
been massed on the west side of tlic river.
General Menilrnlnll was holding them like so
many cocked pistols, nnd just in the nick of
lime the power of cannon was cast into the
lul nice. Those sixty-eight cannons shook
the earth and in a few minutes the solid col
umns of the rebels were torn lo fragments.
Those that were not killed or wounded ran in
wild confusion and fright back through th
cotton-field and look refuge in the limber.
After Ihe engagement, which lastol bill 40
minutes, three thousand rebel dead were found
on the cotlon-field, and double that number
were wounded, 1 he Union dead on the field
were fully a thousand.
Kverytffort possible was nude by the sur
geons to mitigate the suffering of the wounded,
both on the field and in hospital.
On the nest da) (Salurda)) I was detailed
by General Crittenden to go lo Nashville to
secure a suitable building and organize a bos.
pital for the wounded of General Vancleavc's
division. When I arrived in Nashville I was
fortunate in finding nn empty business house of
immense size 4 stories high, 151 feet and of
sufficient width to accommodate a thousand
patients-. The wounded were brought in on
ambulance trains and in railroad cars.
Tins hospital was known as " Hospital No,
19" ami was kept o en until after Ihe close of
the war. I remained in surgical charge of this
hospital for three months until I wax attacked
with t)phoid. Then in order to get home
that I might have a bettir opportunity to
recover, I resigned in) commission as surgeon
of my regiment. After the fever abated I
made a slow convalescence and my health was
onl) falily established by the first of June,

put the letter aside for future reference, saying
nothing. To Kosecrans' opm, Impulsive and
honorable nature, engaged with all his powers
in furthering the interests of the government
and t lie general welfare of his command, this
tiller was nn insult, nnd he treated It accord
ingly. On March lith he forwarded his, reply
to Hatlcck, informing him that, "as an officer
and as a citizen, he felt degraded at such
auctioneering of honors," and added 1 " Have
wc n general who would fight for his own per
sonal bentfit when he would not for honor
and for his country? lie would come b) his
commission basely in thai case, and deserve
to be despised by men of honor. Hut, are all
Ihe brave and honorable generals on an equal
ity as to clnnces? If not, it is unjust In those
who probably deserve most." The effect of
1I1I1 was. to widen Ihe breach between tin
honest, fearless anil soldierly Kosecrans, nnd
the pettifogging, "paper general" llalleck,
who, fresh from the results of n large law
practice In Calitornia, principally devoted to
tbS establishment of the validity of land grants
in favor of his clients, m the success of which
large contingent fees were gained, saw nothing
nnprojier in such an offer to an officer of sufli
cicnt ability and standing to be in command
of one of the armies of the United States,
Hut Kosecrans' answer, although well de
served, was impolitic, and drew on him the
full resentment of both llalleck and Stanton,
His requests were ignored from that time for
ward, nnd reinforcements wtre denied him;
but, for alt that, his cause triumphed and the
Union was saved.
To return to the advance on Tullahoma :
In June, the fighting at Liberty Gap was the
most severe of the campaign, it was in repel
ling a rebel attack that Colonel Miller fell
while leading his brigade, severely wounded
with a Minnie ball through his left eye.
The Tullahoma campaign, with the ex
ception of the one immediately following,
terminating in the battle of Chickannuga, was
the most brilliant of the great strategic cam
piigns carried to a successful issue by General
Kosecrans. The movemtnts of the army
occupied nine da)s. during which time the
enemy was driven from two strongly fortified
positions, vvilh a loss of in prisoners of 1,634,
elewn pieces of artillery, and a large amount
of stores and supplies.
Kosecrans completely out-generaled Lcc
Kosecians' loss in Ihe nine da)s was 560 the
opposition forces were nearly equal, as the
rebels were slrongly entrenched. . .1.

General Lyon with something over 500 Union
troops, moved out from the town-of Springfield.

dawn of the next day attacked the tcbel forces
under Genetals McCulloch and I'rince, as in
largely superior iiuinliew they hy encamped
along the banks of Wilson Creek, It proved
lo be a disaslerous day for the Union forces,

had preceded it almut a mouth. Two days

fhey came from Iowa nnd from Lnuisiam,
from Kansas and from Texas, from Missouri,
and from Arkansas', ind mingled together In
camp life for three d.t)s, and closed the re-tinlon
to-day by n visit to the bittlc ground. I had
never conceived such a scene. I do not know
Ihat history furnishes such a parallel. Here
arc a score ol officers from each side, with
hundreds of privates, talking over H16 scenes
of the liattlc nn the very spot where they had
once been opposed in mortal combat. That
tittle hill or tongue of hnd jutting out Into the
valley yonder, they all ngrei1 to call "blood)
hill." On its crest is a rude heap of stones
which milk the place where l,)nn fell, nnd
over which most of the bloody work was done.
Siegct's furiousGcnnans made Ihcir onslaught
from the hills in tlic rear, .across the creek yon
der. And so they go on pointing out where
charge nnd retreat and onslaught were made,
and where comrades fell.
Is it imagination, or arc these men unwont
edly sober as Ihey review these scenes and talk
together? There seems no restraint tiponlhcm.
They arc maul) men, jet chastened nnd sober
somehow, while the gray Jocks arc creeping
over nil iheir hculs. If testimony nnd
observation can be trusted, no more nrdcily
IkkI) of men were ever brought together for a
soldiers' reunion. No clashing nor inharmo
nic could lie discovered in public or in private.
They studied only Ihe things that make for
peace. All fell what one ol the speakers from
Atkansas said his people had learned, tint
"One stack of corn or cotton is worth more
than a thousand sabres or stands of nrms."
One evening was given up to speech-making
at the unveiling of the monument just ereettd
li) the citbens of Springfield in the centre of
the iiublic squares lo the memory of General
L)on, Speeches were made by Unionists
and ex-Confederates in turn, and from both
parties funds hid been contributed for its
Neither were their dead comrades in thr two
cemeteries yonder forgotten. It was a touch
ing thing to see those great stalwart intn from
Iowa searching among the marble headstones
for the names of those Ihey had known; and
when they found them the) placed -a flag to
wave over each; then turned their feet with
respectful mierTand thoughtful interest, lo visit
the graves of iheir fallen foes.
On the liattlcficld to-day a meeting was call
ed, and a temporary organization of the "Sur
viving Soldiers' Union League" was cllecled
by the election of officers. The objects of the
organization, as stated, arc "to cultivate fa
tetnity, strengthen union, promote peace, and
secure prosperity." And who shall forbid the
rreachcr-bke, I cannot well close this dis
course without some practical reflections:
I. Let nooncsaytoo-hastily thalthcy could
not engage in such scenes. Dying hour
comes; and living gac, for special circum
stances surround one's life.
2. 'I he soldiers arc ahead of the preachers
in this manner of fraternity. They (the preach
ers) hive barely touched finger-tips "across the
bloody chasm," while the soldiers have spun
yarns about the same camp-fire, and drank out
of the same canteen. As there Is something of
the soldiers and the preacher both in me, I
can do either, and have done both.
3. We soldiers have never passed that little
resolution, "While receding from no principle,
we do hereby declare our regret for, and with
drawal of," c.j and we think we have gotten
along quite as well without it as the preachers
have with it. Really now did that little piece
of diplounlic rcgrctfulness do any one much
good, or bring any one so very mutli nearer lo
any due else? Take our .word for it, if j oil
preachers, North and South, ever gtt any near
er to each other, it will not be by the force of
any resolutions concerting the iast which you
may have ndopicd, or ever will adopt; but it
will be by the power of ninvietioiis tonceming
the common work God has for you to do In the
present and in the future. Pougat I', Put'

Fit John Porter appcirs here every winter,
white haired and broken in frame a little old

not changed much of late, tie is rich, and
entci tains will in his New Vork city home,
hut the activity of his life is over, lie likes
still to tell of his cainpilgns. Pleasanton, the
hero of a hundred cavalry fights, lives quilely
here, and can be found any day reading the
papers in one of the offices on Newspaper Kovv.
His hair and moustache are while nnd his voice
gentle as a woman's. You can say the same
of Kosecrans, the Idol of the Army of the
Cumberland. lie nnd his wife live, nlmost
unnoticed, on Capitol Hill, during the lime he
spends here performing his duties as a Call,

youth's, and his hair, with a military cut, white
as snow. Tlic mm who cominindcd one hun
dred thousand men at Chiramauga seem j abash

in congress. Both are fifty-seven years old
but neither has a gra) hair.
"General Knsecrans has been reinforced this
season hy an old comianion in the Western
armies, General Slocum of Brooklyn. He has
been once in congress In-fore. He served, I
believe, four )ears soon afltr the close' of the

In congress the question of emancipating the
slaves was claiming a large share of attention.
Already a considerable number in Imth houses
insisted thai a decree of universal emancipation
was neccssar) lo put down the rebellion,
while others claimed thai it was an act of in
litsticc to the South. The act of emancipation
in the District of Columbia had been passul,
signed by the president, and become a law, but
Ihat did not satisfy the people. lively one felt
the, peril of the hour, but "one felt the burden
of it like our beloved president. Nothing
kept him from sinking wholly underneath the
load of calumny and weighty caresthat beset him
day and nighl, but the strong will ol the man
combined with his wonderful facility in extract
iny comfort out of the pleasant trivialities of
evcry-day life. Uven his little dog Jlp was
instrumental in relieving his mister of some
portion ot the burden, for thu little fellow was
nevcrabsent Irom the presidential lunch. He
was alwa)s in Mr. Lincoln's lap to claim his
portion first and was caressed and pelled by
him through the whole meal.
Often he would come in haggard and weary,
sinking into the chair almost helpless, and
would cast about on the shelf near at hn,d, for
a book containing Dame Partington's saying,
and in some trivial bit o humor, which he
would read to Mrs. Poinroy, laugh aay the
cloud of weariness lint had tc-tled upon him.
Sometimes it was Shakespeare, of which he
had a most profound appreciation, often reading
aloud, In Ijcanlifully mndutatid accents, Ihe
thoughts Ihat charmed him must. Then it
would be the old family Hible of his mother's,
persuading him with an eloquence hc)ond that
of words, to hold on through the struggle, ai
she, poor woman, had done, till vlcloiy shouU
come. Often the stiain upen brain and body
was relaxed b) living over bojhood days re
h.arsin,; events through which he has pissed.
He said lo Mrs. Poinroy nt one lime, "Did I
ever tell )ou about ill) first dollar? I prized

One day when Tad was looking: nt some

Little Tad furnished another blight spot of
comfort for the president. He look great
delight in the child's Infinite fund of boisterous
mirth and mischlevlous pranks. After his
brother Willie's death and the depaitutcof
Robert for college, he was Idolized and petted

If ihey attempted discipline, or Interfered In
any way witti his cherished schemes, and in
thai case he was shrewd enough lo get nd of
them. "Let him run," said the president)
" he will have lime enough to learn his Idlers
and get poky," From early In the morning
till late nt nighl he kept the house alive with
his fantastic pranks; joking kids to chairs,
driving his dogs landein over the lawn, and
even taking Ihe affairs of slate in hand, in
which he showed a degree of discernment and
appreciation of merit bc)ond Ihat of many an
older head, for he would (real Hatlcrcrs nnd

some poor widow or tatlercd soldier, whom he
found waiting in the ante-rooms, dragging them
into the executive presence, ordering the tuhcrs
out of the way and demanding immediate 'ac

In April, of the )ear S6(, the cry or our
starved men in the Southern prisons reached
the ears uf the president, and touched his sym
pithetic heart. Negoliations were entered into
with the South foi an exchange of prisoners,
in consequence of which hundreds of starving
men from Libby prison, Andcrsonvllle, llcllc
Isle, and other places, wtre brought in as fast
as Hie exchange could be made.
At Hall imore a hospital improvised from a
large old building on the wharf, built for the
storage of grain, was given the name ol
West Ho-,pilal. The oath cf allegiencc was
administerd outside, and again inside the outer
door, witli strict injunctions not to speak or
;n look al the rebel officers, through whose
quarters they had to pass on their way to Ihe
Union men, who were on the second flight.
II re again the oath of allegiance was taken
enleting. The sight that met their c)cs
1 :y passed in, beggcrs nil tlescription, but
1. details of the hcatt-rending condition of
these poor sufferers h ivebcen so often depictid,
that il need i uglily delineation at our
hands. 1 ig C)cs that met their gaze
told the sto y .1 insanity. The faces wore the
hue of leather; their hair was filled with vermin,
and their half-clad bodies covered with filth.
Weaker than new-born infants, many died
while beingitaken from their stretchers, still
Ihe stream of living death was (mured in; some
through tne doors, others through windows,
where elevators took them from the water side.
Lvery attention that medical skill could devise,
every effort thai faithful nursis could put forth,
uvtry luxury that the women of Haltimorc
could procure, was provided to fan the flame of
life into a brighter glow; but all in vain for
many. The oil was nearly burned ; it flickered
for a few brief moments, and then went nut.
Among the screams and groans which con
slnnlly assailed Ihe ear, was heard the cry for
mother, wife or sister ; the dying blessing and
curses of the insane were mingled in one.

The veterans on the wrong side ol the late
unplesamncs-. says the Springfield Republican
have begun to organize with a view-10 looking
after the needs of their contrails and their
families. K. F, Lee Camp, No I, "Confed
erate Veterans," of Kiclunond, appeals lo the
Union soldiers to help Ihtm in a fair lo raise
funds for this object. As the Confederate
veterans arc aided by no pensions, the necessity
for volunteer charity is ihe more pressing.
The G. A. K. commander for Virginia pub
lishes their appeal, with his indorsement, and
sa)S Ihe best of feeling prevails between the
men from the two armies. He says: "They
mutually reciprocate in decorating the Union
and Confederate graves. They participate in
our camp-fires and generously assist the com
rads in t-nterlainini? visiting posts. It it hoped
that the contrails of the order, to the best of
their ability, will extend a liberal hand 10 those
gallant, unfortunate men In Iheir hour of need."
Some of the northern new spapcrs are reprint
