ACROSS THE LONG BRIDGE.
I have heretofore been proud of my indi
viduality, and resisted, so far as one may, all the
world's attempts to mergo me in'ihe mass, il
pluribus vnum has been my motto. But when
ever I march with the regiment my pride is
that I lose my individuality that I am merged ;
that I become a part ot a machine, a mere
walking genllerdnii, n No 1 or it No. 2, from
mnk or rear rank, Cle leader or filo closer.
The machine is so steady and so mighty, it
moves with such musical cadence and such
brillamt show, that 1 enjoy it entirely as the
unum, and lose myself gladly as a pluribus.
Night increases this fascination. The outer
world js vague in the moonlight. Objects out
ol our ranks are lost. 1 see only glimmering
steel and glittering buttons, and the light step
pin; forms of my comrades. Oar array and
our step connect us. We move aa one man. A
mun made of a thousand members, and each
member a man, ii a grand creature particularly
when jrpu cousider that he is self-made. And
the object of this self-made giant, men-man, is
to destroy another like himself, or the separate
pigmy members of another such giant. We
have failed to put ourselves heads, arms, legs,
and wjlls together as a unit for any purpose
so 'thoroughly as to snuff out a similar unit.
Up to 1861, it seems that the business of war
compacts men best.
Well, the seventh, a compact projectile, was
now flinging itself along the road to Washing
ton. Just a month ago, " in such a night as
this," we mnde our first promenade through
tho enemy's country. Too moou of Anna
poliswhy should we not have oar ominous
moon, as those other fellows had their sun of
Austerlitz? the moon of Annapolis shone
over us. No epithets are too 6ne or too com
plimentary for buch a luminary, and there was
no dust under her rays.
So wo pegged along to Washington, and
across Washington, which at that point con
sists of Willards' Hotel, a few'other buildings
being iu sight. A hag in a night cap reviewed
us from an upper window us we tramped by,
ODnosite that bald block, the Washington
Monument, nud opposite what was of more
importance to us, a drove of beeves putting
beef on their bones in the seedy grounds of the
Smithsonian Institution, we wero halted, while
the New Jersey brigade soma three thousand
of them trudged by, receiving the compli
mentary fire ot our line as they passed. New
Jersey is not so far from Now York but that
the dialects of the two can understand each
other. Their respective slangs, though pecu
liar, are of the same genius. By the end of
this war, I trust that these distinctions of lo
cality will be quite annulled.
We began to feel like an army as these
thousands thronged by us. This was evidently
a movement iu force. We rested an hour or
more by the road. Mounted officers galloping
along down the lines kept up the excitement.
At last we had the word to fall in again, and
march. It is part of the simplo perfection of
tho macmne, a regiment, mat, mouga u urups
to pit ces for a rest, it comes together instantly
for a start, and nobody is confused or delayed.
Wo moved half a mile farther, and presently a
broad pathway of reflected moonlight shone up
ut us from the Potomac.
No orders at this time came from the colonel,
"Attention, battalion I Be sentimental' Per
haps privates havo no right to perceive the
beauutui. xui me sccuuua m my uciuuui
hood murmured ndmiratlon. Tuo utter serei
nity of the night was mot impressive. Cool
and quiet, and tender, the moon shono upon
oar ranks. She does not thauge her visage,
whether it be lovers, or burglars, or soldiers, who
use her as a lantern to their feet.
The Long Bridge, thus far, has been merely
a shutiby causeway with water-ways and draws.
Shabby 1 Let mo here pause to say that iu
Virginia shabbiness is tho grand universal law,
and neatness the spasmodic exception, at
tained in rare spots an wnon beyond their
Old Dominion age.
The Long Bridge has thus far been a totally
unliiKiuric and prosaic bridge. Roads and
bridges aro making themselves of importance,
and Burning up inui euuueu renown iu menu
times. The Long Bridge has done nothing
hitherto, except carry passengers on its back
across the Potomac. Hucksters, planters, dry
goods, drummers, members of Congress, el tx
genera omnia, have here gone and come on
their several mercenary errands, and, as it now
appears, some sour little imp the very reverse
of a "sweet little cherub" took toll of every
man as he passed a heavy toll, namely,
every man's whole store of patriotism and loy
alty. Every man, so it seems, who passed the
Long Bridge was stripped of hU hist dollar of
Ainw Patrice, and cume to Washington, or
went home, with a waistcoat pocket full of
bogus in change. It was our business now to
open tho bridge, and seo it clear, and leavo
sentries along to keep it permanently tree for
Thero is a milo of this Long Bridge. Wo
seomed to occupy the whole length of it, with
our files opened to diffuse tho weight of our
column. We were not now the tired und sleepy
squad which just a moou ago had trudged
along the railroad to tho Annapolis Junction,
looking up a capital and a Government, per
By the time we touched ground across tho
bridge, dawn was breaking good omen for

it is also the post of less dust. My throat,

less Southern soil, when wo halted half a mile
beyond tho bridge, and let sunriso overtake us.
Nothing men can do, except picnics, with
' ladies in straw flats, with feathers, is bo pic
turesque aB soldiering. As soon as the seventh
halt anywhere, or move anywhere, or camp
anywhere, they resolve themselves into a grand

By and by, when ray brain had taken in as
much of the picturesque as it could stand, it
suffered tho brief congestion known as a nap.
I'was suddenly awaked by tho ratflo of a horse s
hoofs. Before I had rubbed my eyes the rider
was gone His sharp tidings had stayed be
hind him. Ellsworth was dead- so he said
hurriedly, and rode on. Poor Ellsworth 1 a
fellow of genius and Initiative I He had still
so much of tko boy in him that he rattled for
ward boyishly, and so died. Si monumentum
rtquivis, look at Ihb regiment. It was a bril
liant stroke to levy it; and if it does worthily,
Its yonng colonel will not have lived in vain.
AS the morning hours passed, we learned
that we were the rear guard of the left wing of
the army advancing into Virginia. The seventh,
as the best organized body, acted as reserve io
this force. It didn't, wish to be in the rear ;
but such is tho peualty of being reliable for
au emergency. Fellow-soldier, be a scalawag,
be a bashi-bazouk, be a Bllly-Wilsonor, if you
wish to seo the fun in the van I
When the road grew too hot for us on ac
count of the fire of sunshine in our rear, wo
jumped over the fence into the race course, a
big field beside us, and there became squatter
sovereigns all day. I shall be a bore if I say again
what a pretty figure we cut In this'rallicnry pic
nic, with two long lines of blankets craped on
bayonets for pararols.
The New' Jersey brigade
e were meanwhile
doing workia work on the ridge just beyond
us. The road and railroad to Alexandria fol
low the general course of the river southward
along the level. This ridge, to be fortified, is
at the point where the highway bends from
west to south. The works were intended to
serve as an advanced ietedu pont a bridge
head, with a very long neck connecting it with
the bridge. That fine old Fabius, Gen, Scott,
had no idea of flinging an army out'broadcast
into Virginia, and, in the insupposable case
that it turned tail, leaving it uo defended pas
sage to run awayoy.
This was my first view of a field-work in
construction also, my first hand as a laborer
at a field-work. 1 knew glacis and counter
scarp on paper ; also, on paper, superior slope,
banquette, and the other dirty parts of a re
doubt. Hern they were, not an paper. A
sliirht wooden scnflbldiuir determined the shape
of the simplo work) and when I arrived n
thousand Jerseymcn wero working, not at all
like Jerseymcn, with picks, spades and shovels,
cutting into Virginia, digging into Virginia,
shoveling up Virginia, for Virginia's protec
tion against pseudo Virginians.
I swarmed in for a little while with our pay
master, picked a little, spaded a little, shoveled
a little, took a hand, to my great satisfaction, at
earthworks, and (or. my efforts I venture to
suggest that Jersey City owes me its freedom

Well, to bo Xenophontis. From tho raco
course that evening we marched one stadium,
one parasang, to a cedar grove up the road.
In tne groo is a spring worthy to be culld a
fountain, and what I determined, by infallible
indications, to be a lager bier saloon. Saloon

each must surrender to, the bold soldier boy.
Exit champagne and its goblet; exit lager
and its mug; enter whiskey aud water in a tin
pot. Such are the horrors of a civil war I
And now I must cut short my story, for
graver matters press. As to tho residence of
the 'seventh in the cedar grove for two days
and two nights how they endured the 'bard
ship of a bivouac on soft earth and the starva
tion of coffee sans milk how they digged
manfully in the trepches by gangs all these
two laborious days with what supremo artistic
finish their work was achieved how thuy
chopped off their corns with axes as they

they blUtered their hands how they chafed
that thev were not lunsine with battailous steel
at the breasts of the minions of the oligarchs
how Washington, seeing tho smoke of burn
ing rubbish, and hearing dropping shots
ot target practice, or of novices with the mus
ket shooting each other by accident bow
Washington, alarmed, imagined a battle, and
went into panic ntcordinglj all this, is it not
wriltou iu the daily papers ?
On the evening of tho EGlh, the seventh
travelled back to Camp Cameron iu a smart
shower. Its service was over. Its month was
expired. The troops ordered to relieve it bad
arrived. It had given the other volunteers the
hem fit of mouth's education at its drills and
parades. It had enriched poor Washington to
tho tune of fitly thousand dollars. Ah, Wash
ington I that we, under Providuncn, nud after
General Butler, saved from the heel of seces
sion! Ah, Washington, why did you charge
us so much for our milk, and butter, and straw
berries? Tho seventh, thou, after a month of
delightful duty, was to bo mustered out ot ser
vice, and taku new meusuus, if it would, to
have a longer and a larger iharo in the war.
I took advantage of the day of rest after our
return to have a gallop about the outposts.
Arlington Heights hud been tho spot whence
the alarmists'" threateucd us daily with big
iV,,,.l..r nud Imrxiinif buuibs. 1 was curious to
seo tho region that had had Wusbiugtou under
its thumb. ... ....
So private W., tired of his foot-soldiering,
ant b. auadruned under him. and felt like a
cavalier again. The horse took me along the
tow-path of the Cumberland canal, as far as
the redoubts where we had worked our task.
Then I turnod up the hill, took a look at the
camp of tho Now York twenty fifth at tho loft,
and rode along for Arlington House.
Qrand name I and the domain is really quite
grand, but ill-kept. Fine oaks make beauty
without asking favors. Fine oaks and a fair
view make nil the beauty-of Arlington, It
seoras that this old establishment, like many
another old Virginian, bad claimed Its respect
ability for Its antiquity, and failed to keep up
to the lovel of the time. The ro.id winds along
througb'the trees, climbing to fairer and fairer
reaches of view over the plain of Washington.
I had not faucied that there was any such
lovely lite near the capital. But wo have not
yet appreciated what nature has done for us
there. Vt ben civilisation once makes up jts
mind to colonize Washington, all this amphi
theatre of tills will blossom with structures of
the sublimest gingerbread.
Arlington House is the antipodes of ginger
bread, except that it is yellow and disposed to
crumble It has a pompous propylon of enor
mous stuccoed columns. Any home smaller
than Blenheim would tail on insiguiGcantly af
ter such a frontispiece. The interior has a
certain careless, romantic, decayed gentleman
elTjct, wholly Virginian. It was enlivened by
the uniforms of staff officers just now, and, as
they rode through the trees of the approach
and by the tents of the New York eighth, en
camped iu the grove to the rear, the tableau
was brilliantly warlike. Here by tho way, let
me pause to ask, aa horseman, though a foot
soldier, why generals and other gorgeoui fel
lows make such guys of their horse with trap
pings. If the horse is a screw, cover him thick
with saddle-cloths, girths, cruppers, breast
bands, and as much brass and tinsel as your
pay will enable you to buy ; but, if not a screw,
let his fair proportions be seen as much as may
be, and don't bother a lover of good horse-uYsh
to eliminate so much uuiform before he can see
what is beneath.
From Arlington I rode to the other encamp
ments the sixty-ninth, fifth, aud twenty-eighth,
all of New York and heard their several sto
ries of alarms and adventures. This comple
ted the circuit of tho new fortification of the
Great Camp. Washington was now a fortress.
The capital was out of danger, and therefore
of no lurther interest to anybody. The time
had come for myself and my regiment to leave
it by different ways.
" PAItTANT rOBR LA SYRIE."
I should have been glad to stay and seo my
comrades through to their departure, but then
was a Massachusetts man down at Fortress
Monroo, Builer by name has any one heard
of him ? and to this gentleman it chnnced
that 1 was to report myself. So I packed my
knapsack, got my furlough, shook hands with
my fellows, said good-by to Camp Cameron,
and was off, two days after our month's service
PAREWELL PO THE SEVENTH.
Under Providence, Washington owes its
safety, first, to General Butler, whose genius
devised the circumvention of Baltimore and
its rascal crew, and whose utter bravery exe
cuted the plan ; he is the Grand Yankee of
this little period of tho war. 2d. To the other
Most Worshipful Grand Yankees of the Mas
sachnsetts regiment who followed their lender,
as he knew they would, discovered a forgotten
colony called Annapolis, aud dashed in there,
asking no questions. 3d. And while I gladly
yield the first places to this general and Mb
roeu, I put the seventh in os last, but not least,
in saying the capital, Character always tells.
The seventh, by good, hard, faithful work at
drill, bad established its fame as the most
thorough militia regiment in existence. Its
military and moral character were excellent.
The mere name of the regiment carried weight.
It took the field as if the field were a ball room.
There were myriads eager to march ; but they
had not made ready beforehand. Yes, tho
seventh bad its important share in the rescue.
Without our support, whether our leaders ten
dered it eagerly or hesitatingly, General But
ler's position at Annapolis would have been
critical, and his forced march to the capital n
forlorn hope heroic, but desperate.
Bo honor to whom honor is dub.
Here I must cut short my story. So good
bye to tho seventh, and thanks for the fascinat
ing mouth I have passed in their society. In
this pause of the war our camp life has been
to me as brilliant as a permanent pic nic.
Good-bye to company I, and all the fine fel
lows, rough and smooth, cool old hands, and
recruits verdant but ardent I Good-bye to our
lieutenants, to whom I owe much kindness I
Good-bye, the orderly, so peremptory on pa
rade, bo indulgent off I Good bye, everybody.
And so, in haste, I close.
