THREE, WEEKS GETTYSBURG.
AVImi ivc did at Cell j'sliiirg".
What we did at Gettysburg, flr the three
weeks we were there, jou will want to know.
We," are Mrs. , and mjself, who, hap
pening to t on hand at the right moment, gladly
fell in with the 'proposition - to do what we
could at the Sanitary Commission Lodge, after
the battle. There were of course, the agents of
the Cuminusion, already on the field, distributing
supplies to the hospitals, and working night and
day among the wounded. I cannot pretend to
tell yoo what was done by all the big wheels of
the concern, but only how two of the smallest
ones went round, and what turned up in the
Twenty-four hours we were in making the
Journey, between .Baltimore and Gettysburg,
places only four hours apart in ordinary runr ing
time; and this will give you some idea of the
difficulty there was of bringing on supplies when
the fighting was over, and the delays in trans
porting wounded. Coming toward the town at
this crawling rate, we passed some fields where
the fences were down and the ground Blightly
tossed op : That's where Kilpatrick's cavalry
men fought the rebels," some one said, ' and
close by that barn a rebel soldier was found day
before yesterday sitting dead no one to help,
poor soul, "near. the whole city full." The
railroad bridge broken up by the enemy, Govern
ment bad not rebuilt as yet, and we stopped two
miles from the town, to 'find that, a usual, just
where the Government had left off the Commis
sion had come in. Their stood therr temporary
lodge and kitchen, and here hobbling out of
their tents came the wounded men who had made
theirvway down from the Corps hospital expect
. ing to leave at once in the return cars. ;
This is the way the thing was managed . at
first : the surgeons left in care of the wounded
three or four miles out from the tow a, went up
and down among the men in the morning, and
' said, Any of you boys who can make your way
to the cars, can go to Baltimore." So off start
all who think they feel well enough, anything
being better than the hospitals," so called, for
me nrst lew uays alter a buttle, unce the men
have the surgeons' permission to go, they are off;
and there may be an interval of a day, or two
days, should any of them be two weak: to reach
tbe train in time, during which these poor fellows
belong to no one, the hospital at one end, the
railroad at the other, with far more than chance
of falling through between the two. The Sani
tary Commission knew this would be so of neces
sity, and coming in, made a connecting link be
tween these two ends.
For the first few days the worst cases only,
came down in ambulances fmm the hospitals ;
hundreds of fellows hobbled along as best they
could in heat and dust, fur hours, slowly toiling,
and many hired farmers wagons, as bard as the
farmers' ts themselves, and were jolted down to
the railroad, at three or four dollars the man.
Think of the disappointment of a soldier, bick,
body and heart, to find, at the end of , this miser
able, joarney, that his effort to get" away, into
. which he. had put all his remaining stock of
strength, wu useless ; that ' the cars had gone,"
or the cars were full ;" tbat while he was coming'-others,
bad stepped down before him, : and
that he must turn all the weary way back again,
or sleep on the roadside till the next train ' to
morrow !" - Think what this would have been,
and yoo are ready to appreciate the relief and
comfort that teas. ' No men were turned back.
You fed and you sheltered them just when no
one else could have done so ; and out of the bar
rels of good and nourishing things, which you
people at home had supplied, we took a1! tbat
was needed. Some of you sent a stove (tbat is,
the money to get it,) some of you, the beef stock,
some of you the milk and fresh bread ; and all of
you would have been thankful that you had done
so, could you liave seen the refreshment and
comfort received through these things.
A soon as tbe men hobbled up to the tents,
good hot soup was given all round, and tbat over,
their wounds were dressed, for the gentlemen
of the commission are cooks.-or surgeons, as
. occasion demands, and, finally, . with their
blankets spread over the straw, the men stretched
themselves out and were happy and contented till
morning, ana ine next train.
On the day that the railroad bridge was re
paired we moved up to the depot, close by the
town, and had tilings in perfect order ; a first
rate camping ground, in a large field directly by
the track, with unlimited supply of delicious
cool water. Here we set up two stoves, with
four large boilers, always kept full of soup and
coffee, watched by four or five black men, who
did the cooking, uncfer our direction, and sang
(not under our direction) at the tops of their
voices all day,
Oh darkies hab you teen cjy Massa.
When this crutt war is orrr.-
Theo we had three large hospital tenta, holding
aoout mirty-nve eacn, a large camp-meeting
supply-tent, where barrels of goods were stored,
and our own smaller tent fitted up with table!!
where jelly pots and bottles of all kinds of goodk
wyrupe. oiocjtoerry ana oiacic curraut, stood in
rows. Barrels were ranged round the tent walls ;
shirt, drawers, dreting-gowns, socks, and slip
pers' (I wish we had more of the latter, rags and
bandages, eaeb in its own place on one'&ide ; on
th other, boxes of tea, coffee, soft -ckers,
jtaxaarinds, cherry brandy, etc. Over -kitchen,
And over this small supply-tent weJLjien rather
reigoed. And filled up our wants bv requisitions
xn the Commission's depot. By this time there
bad arrired a 44 delegation" of just the right
kind from Ctcandaigua, N. Y., with surgeon
dressers and ai tendants, bringing a first-rate sup
ply of necessities .nd comforts for the wounded,
which hey handed ovat to the Commission.
Twi3e a day tLe trains left for Baltimore or
Harribur. and trie a day we fed all the
wouuded wb arrived for them. Things were
y sterna (tied now, and th& mea came down in
long Miibul.inca traioa to the cars ; baggage-cars
' ' "-
they were, filled with straw for the wounded to
lie on, and open at either end to let in the air.
A government surgeon was always present to
attend to the careful lifting of the soldiers from
ambulance to car. Many of tbe men could get
along very nicely, holding one foot up. and tak
ing great jumps on their crutches. The latter
were a great comfort ; we had a nice supply at
the lodge, and they . travelled up and down from
tbe tents to tbe cars daily. Only occasionally
did wo dare let a pair go on with wme very lame
soldier, who begged for them ; we needed them
to help the new arrivals each day, and trusted
to the men being supplied at the hospitals at the
journey's end. Jx.ids and crutches are a standing
want, puds particularly. We manufactured
them out of the rags we had, stuffed with saw
duat from brandy boxes, and with half a sheet
and some soft straw Mrs. made a jioor
dying boy as easy as his sufferings would permit.
Poor young fellow, he was so grateful to her for
washing, and feeding, and comforting him. He
was too ill to bear tbe journey, and went from
our tent to the church hospital and from the
church to his grave, which would have been
coffinless but for the care of , for the
Quarter Master's Department was overtaxed, and
for many days our dead were simply wrapped in
their blankets, and put into the earth. It is a
soldierly way after all, of lying wrapped in the
old war-worn blanket, the little dust returned to
- When the surgeons had the wounded all placed,
with as much comfort as seemed possible under
the circumstances, on board the train, our detail
of men would go from car to car, with soup
made of beef-ttock or fresh meat, full of potatoes,
turnips, cabbage, and rice, with fresh bread and
coffee, and, when stimulants were needed, with
ale, milk-punch, or brandy. Water-pails were
in great demand for use in the cars on the
journey, and also empty bottles to take the place
of canteens. All our whisky and brandy bottles
were washed and filled up at the spring, and the
boys went off hugging their extemporized ean
teens, from which they would wet their wounds,
or refresh themselves till the journey ended. I
do not think that a man of the 1G.00U, who were
transported during our stay, went from Gettys
burg, without a good meal rebels and Unionists
together, they all had it, and were p.leased and
satiefied. " Have you friends in the army,
madam ?' a rebel soldier, lying on the floor of
I 1 x W a
ine car, sum to me, as i gave mm some muK.
Yes, my brother is on 's staff." I
thought so, ma'am. You can always tell ;
when peopIe are good to soldiers they are sure to
have friends in the army." We are rebels,
you know, ma'am," another said; ' Do you
treat rebels so? It was strange to see the good
brotherly feeling come over the soldiers, our
own and the rebels, when side by side they lay
in our tents. " Hallo, boys ! this is the pleasant
est way to meet, isn't it ? We are better friends
wften we are as close as this, than a little farther
off." And then they would go over the battles
together : we were here," and ' you were
there," in the friendliest way.
After each train of cars daily, for the three
weeks we were in Gettysburg, trains of ambu
lances arrived too late, men who must spend the
day with us until the 5 P.M. cars went, and
men too late for 5 P. M. train, who must spend
the night till the 10 A. M. cars went. All the
men who came in this way, under our own im
mediate and particular attention, were given the
best we had of care and "food. The surgeon in
charge of our camp, with his most faithful drcser
and attendants, looked after all their wounds,
which were often in a mcst shocking state, par
ticularly among the rebels. Every evening and
morning they were drcised." Often the men
would say, That feels good. I haven't had
my wound so well dressed since 1 was hurt."
Something cool to drink is the first thing asked
for after the long, dusty drive, and pailfuls of
tamarinds and water, a beautiful drink," the
men used to say, disappeared rapidly among
After the men's wounds were attended to, we
went round giving them clothes ; had basins and
soap and towels, and followed these with socks,
slippers, shirts, drawers, and those coveted drc."-s-ing-gowns.
Such pride as they felt in them !
comparing colors, and smiling all over as they
lay in clean and comfortable rows ready for
supper, 44 on dress parade," they used to say.
And then the milk, particularly if it were boiled
and had a little whiskey and sugar, and bread,
with bulttr on it, and jelly on the butter how
good it all was, and how lucky we felt ourselves
in having the immense? satisfaction of distribut
ing these things, which all of you, hard at work
in villager and cities, were getting ready and
sending off, in faith.
Canandaigua sent cologne with other sup
plies, which went right to the nose and hearts
of the men. 44 That is good, now ;" 44 I'll take
some of that;" 44 worth a penny a sniff;"
' th-it L-1 n.Kr iri'vMi nna lifar n n f srt rm nil
round the tents, as we tipped the bottles up on
the clean handkerchiefs some one had sent, and
when they were gone, over squares of cotton, on
which the perfume took the place of them,
44 just as good ma'am." We varied our dinners
with custard and baked rice puddings, scrambled
eggs, codfsh hash, corn starch, and always as
much soft bread, tea, coffee, or milk as 'they
wanted. Two Massachusetts boys, I especially
remember, for the satisfaction with which they
ate their pudding. I carried a second plateful up
to the cars, and fed one of them until he was
sure ho had had enough. - Young fellows they
were, lying side by 6ide, one with a right and
one with a left arm gone. .
The Gettysburg women were kind and faithful
to the wounded and their friends, and the town
was full to overflowing of both. The first day,
when Mrs. and I reached the place, we
literally begged our bread from door to door
but the kind woman who at last gave us dinner
would take no pay for it. 44 No, ma'am, 1
shouldn't wish to have that sin on my soul when
the war is over." She, as well as others had fed
the strangers flocking into town daily, sometimes
over fifty of them for each meal, and one night
we fjreed a reluctant confession from our hostess
that site was meaning to sleep on the floor that
we might -have a bed, her whole house being
full. Of course we couldn't allow this self-sacrifice,
and hunted up some other place to stay
in. We did her no gotnl, however, for we
afterwards found that the bed was given up that
night to some other stranger who arrived late
and tired : 44 An old lady, you know, and I
couldn't let an old lady sleep on the floor."
Such acts of kindness and self-denial were almost
entirely confined to women.

JJ&ow'ulu, Dec. 9tn, 1SCJ.
The N. Y. Times, tbe leading Republican
newspaper of that city, and understood to express
the present sentiments of the President of the
United States and a majority of the Cabinet,
defines the policy and views of tbe Government
in the following editorial article, October 5 :
The Union is the avowed and real object of the
war, and for this end the war is prosecuted by
the Government, and the Government is sustained
by the great body of the nation. Slavery we
are now, and always have been, opposed to.
But its abolition i not the purpose, though it
may be an incident, of the present National
struoolf- tbe object of the war were changed
from Union to Abolition, either ostensibly, as
these radicals" demand, or really and practi
cally, both the Union and the cause of freedom
would be endangered.
We are for the Union of the States, -even
though the institution of Slavery continue to
exist in 6ome of them. We are for reconstruc
tion whenever the rebels cease to fight against
the Union. We are even for the Union as it
wr ?," so far as that phrase applies to the consti
tutional righN of States and citizens. The
Constitution provided for a more perfect
Union" than the old Confederation, and the
Union, reconstructed, would doubtless be more
perfect than it formerly was ; but we are battling
for the old forms and the ancient government.
In the Union, Slavery and all other political
evils can be remedied ; but without the Union,
there is no conceivable evil to which we will not
be subject. We are for the Union before Anti
Slavery, before everything eh?e. The policy of
the Government on the subject of Southern Slave
ry is now clearly defined. So far as the rebel
Statei are concerned, Mr. Lincoln's proclamation,
and his late letter sustaining it, are sufficiently
definite and have been accepted by the nation.
So far as the exempted States are concerned, the
TeopIe of every one of tho!e Stat , including
Missouri, are acting in a sufficiently peremptory
and conclusive manner.
The question of slavery is thus settled. The
latter quc tion alone is sufficient to call forth all
the energy and power of the nation. Upon it
all loyal men should concentrat9 all their efforts,
ail(j Ave raay wen doubt the reality of any man's
loyalty who would subordinate it or make it
secondary to anything else, or who would ham
per the prosecution of the war for it, and dimin
ish the zeal of the nation for it, by insisting
upon any conditions other than those found
necessary by the Government.
n 12nglisli Opinion oi Presi
We blame America, and justly for the low
morality which her majorities have exhibited ;
but let us not forget how the anti-slavery feeling
has gone back in England. Let us not shut our
eyes to the scandalous fact that our aristocracy
and'wealthy middle class have, with a few noble
exceptions, been the aiders, the abettors and the
accomplices of Jefferson Davis and his band of
conspirators, in their effort to accomplish the
most hateful, the most atrocious purpose for
which criminals were ever linked together
namely, the perpetuation of slavery as an insti
tution and its 44 extension with Christianity,"
for so they blasphemously asserted, 44 to the very
ends of tbe earth."
More important than any siege of Charleston,
or than any victory in the battle field, is the de
claration of Lincoln that his proclamation must
stand. As the struggle grows nearer to it end,
we fear the influence of these bad white men,
whose conduct he deprecates in such stringent
terms. Did the question of liberty or slavery
remain to be decided in England, we fear also
that the labors of Clarkson and Wilberforce
would need to be performed again. The rich
would in too many cases, sympathize with the
planter in the loss of 44 property" that abolition
would involve. The shallow politician in Eng
land the counterpart of the equally shallow
politician in America would want a comprom
ise, some halfway house between God and the
devil, in which he could enjoy a sfeedier repose.
The grand old stuff which made the men of the
' Commonwealth in this couutry, and founded the
New England Statei in America, is scarcer than
cotton, and far more ec-ential to the nation's
good. There is too much of time-serving, sneak
ing and snivelling on both sides of the Atlantic.
Good, thorough-going lovers of -liberty and
haters of tyranny all the world over are scanda
lously scarce. People are afraid of the conse
quences of a just and noble cause. They would
not object to virtue with 44 limited liability ;"
but to defend the right at all hazards, systemati
cally, and for the love of it, is out of fashion,
because men in counting houses and on 'Change
calculate it won't pay. Amid all this chicanery
and cowardice let Lincoln be honert, and then
the Republic of America will stand as proudly us
any Regal State. London Weekly Times.
