THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. C, OCTOBER 8, 1881,
For The National Tribune.
SLEEP BRINGETH REST.
Sleep bringeth rest to wearied forms
Worn down by labor's grinding heel,
Or buflctings of angry storms
Life bends to man for woe or weal
Sleep bringetli rest ! Sleep bringeth rest !
To tired forms, sweet sleep is blest.
Sleep bringetli rest to wearied eyes
Grown dim with looking on the past,
OrXorsonie future Paradise
Where life may find repose at last
Sleep bringeth rest ! Sleep bringeth rest ;
To eyes grown dim, sweet sleep is blest.
Sleep bringeth rest to wearied hearts
O'crburdened by their weight of care,
Or pierced by sorrow's cruel darts,
Or struggling with a grim despair
Sleep bringeth ret ! Sleep bringeth rest !
To wearied hearts, sweet sleep is blest.
Sleep bringeth rest; but not to all.
Not all who woo its soft embrace
May find repose within its thrall
From care and ev'ry sorrow's trace
Sleep bringeth rest, and sleep is blest ;
But not to all doth sleep bring rest.
Sleep bringeth rest ; and does the grave
Invite to dreamless slumbers sweet ?
Shall we there find the rest we crave
From ev'ry care a sure ret real?
Sleep bringeth rest; and it is blest.
But will the grave bring sleep and rest?
God knows. Perhaps the wearied brain.
Transformed to subtler essence yet.
May languish on, in ceaseless pain,
O'er hopeless struggles to forget
Sleep bringeth rest ; and God knows best.
Perhaps the wearied brain may rest.
"Perhaps1? we know, if we know aught.
That those who walk where Christ hath trod
Shall leave their cares, life's journey wrought.
Outside the gate the grave. That God
Hath ordered best. And they are blest
To whom the grave brings sleep and rest.
HAPNER, THE LAST REBEL,
Elvis Hapner, a Tennessee guerrilla, who will
live in local tradition if not in history, was the
last rebel leader who laid down his illegitimate
arms. At the beginning of the war, Hapner, a
wild, reckless fellow, joined the Confederate
army, but his spirit was too restless to be gov
erned by military discipline. There was some
thing about his bearing that was soldierly. His
tall, commanding form was military, but his
restless gray eyes, that seemed to turn on pivots
one revolving at some special object, while the
other miscellaneously surveyed belonged more
to the bandit than the soldier. After serving a
few months in the ranks and having been several
times arrested for revolutionary exhibitions,
Hapner returned home and raised an inde
pendent company of wild young men. His name
soon became a terror. Scouting parties of Union
soldiers riding along with that careless air
which a sight of camp inspires were attacked,
surprised, and routed.
One morning a wagon-train left Gallatin, ac-
companied by a guard of cavalry in command
of Captain Bunch, an officer whose daring had j

which he was an honored attache. On either
side of the road arose almost perpendicular cliffs, ;

looked above, scanning the rocks. When the
breeze stirred a flower a soldier had his carbine
pointed in the direction of the floral agitation.

emerged on the level plain

the same vines and the same flowers. A large '
pink flower hanging from a rock attracted the j
captain's attention. j
" There's a beauty," he remarked. The flower '
fell, the report of a gun rang out and the captain
lay dead upon his horse's neck. In an instant a )
hundred.carbines rang. Another flower fell and 1
another soldier dropped. The men, infuriated,
dismounted and climbed the crags. Xo one could
be found. They climbed higher and higher. Sud-
denly a volley from the other side of the road ,
was poured down among the men left in charge
of the horses. The soldiers on the cliff hurried
down and climbed up the opposite wall. Cling
ing to roots and struggling over rocks, they
reached the top, only to receive a withering fire
from the guerrillas. The fight was desperate. A
sudden stampede among the horses below would
announce that some brave fellow had fallen and
rolled down among them.
The guerillas left their cover, advanced, and
fought like mad men. Hapner, with two revol
vers, one in each hand, shooting with death-deal
ing rapidity, urged his men

that it was only a scheme to capture him. Ex
rebels returning home were surprised to find
Hapner still in the field, and told him that the
contest was over, but he could not be convinced
that the reports did not result from a desire to
work his destruction. He became so bold that
he would dash into town, and on one occasion
captured a fort (empty, however), within the
Union lines. Finally, he agreed that if the
United States would grant a pardon to all his men
he would surrender. The day was appointed.
Hapner and his men rode to the surrender the
worst lot of horses that could have been mustered
by such a poor institution as the Confederacy.
Hapner's horse was so poor that he had to ride
him like a bicycle one inch from the center of
gravity would have toppled him over. After the
surrender, the murderers who followed this dar
ing, independent espouser of blood-thirstiness '
rode the finest horses in the country. After

machine, and "went about the neighborhood

of "threshing," remarked that the thresher
"wasn't no 'count." Hapner killed the man and
left the State. Shortly after the Leadville
"boom," Hapner was recognized on the streets
of the "raging" city by a former enemy and
stabbed. He reeled, drew a pistol, killed his old
enemy, and fell dead. Cleveland (Ohio) Leader.
THE PRESENT FRENCH ARMY.
Of the French campaign against Tunis the
London Times says: The campaign revealed one
of the most serious blunders ever committed by
a nation, or rather those freely intrusted by it
with its destinies. It will be remembered that
during the war of 1S70 the French soldier was
twitted with having won easy victories in Africa,
and with being immediately beaten whgn faced
by a disciplined army. The reproach was both
founded and unfounded. There was no army on
French soil able to resist the Germans, but there
was an army in Africa which held its ground
against the Arabs, and on the same soil would
have defeated the Germans. Now, when the re
organization of the army was commenced after
the war the system of the victors was naturally
taken as the pattern, it being forgotten that
Frauce was also an African Power, and required
not 011I3' a French, but an African army. There
are certainly some regiments of Algerian Tirail
leurs, but they cannot be removed from the gar
risons they occupy. Now, when the seven years'
service existed, only soldiers who had been three
years with the colors, who were accustomed to
fatigue and discipline, who remained four more
years in service, and after another year were at
310 great disad antage in fighting the Arabs, stood
the heat, thirst, and marching, and understood
bush fighting. Moreover, the re-enlisted men
made excellent experienced companies, who knew
the country and acted as mentors and guides to
the new arrivals.
Xow all this has disappeared. France has re
duced the military service to three vears. The '
soldier remains scarcely two years with the !
colors, the companies are deficient: and if with ,
the present service a campaign is possible on the
Continent, it is disastrous in Africa. The late '
expedition to Tunis has proved it. In many ;
respects the army was much superior to that of j
1S70. The officers and men Avere painstaking, i

i sickness. It was an excellent young armv as
regards garrison duty: but the truth is that
I under fire it was exceedingly difficult to keep
j them steady, and. without actually taking to
j flight, they eagerly took refuge behind thesmallest
i elevation that could hide them. They were ex
cellent recruits, but they were not soldiers.
They had been told that the Kroumirs were
terrible. They had seen some of their comrades
who had fallen into the hands of the enemy
horribly mutilated, and every rifle shot they
heard they felt was aimed at hem How couM

DEATH OF A VETERAN,

The sudden death of Mark Bundy, on the 1st j
inst., was mentioned in last week's Post. It re- I
suited from heart disease, which had threatened j
a ata termination several times during the past j
few months. He was fifty-one years and eleven
months old. He was born near Salisbury, "Wilt
shire county, England. At the age of seven the
family came to Quebec, where his mother and a
sister died. They then moved to Toronto, where
he remained several years. At the age of sixteen
he enlisted in the United States Army, and served
through the Mexican "War. He afterwards entered
the British army, Third Madras regiment, and
fought at Cawnpore, Delhi, Lucknow, and all
the principal battles of the Sepoy rebellion in
Hindoostan, and lor gallantry received a medal
0f honor and forty pounds sterling prize monev
He joined the Union army at the breaking out
of the civil war in America, and served till the
great rebellion was crushed. When home on a
veteran furlough, at Cleveland. Ohio, he was
married to the estimable lady now his widow.
His record as a soldier is brilliant. For gallantry
in carrying off a wounded officer from the bloody
field of StoneT'Kiver, where bullets and shells
rained all around him, and where none else
would venture, General Eosecrantz wrote him a
letter of highest commendation, and placed his
name on the roll of honor. He was taken pris
oner at Atlanta, and was confined six weeks at
Andersonville, when he was exchanged, and again
entered active service. He took part in more
than 200 battles. His hat and his garments were
riddled by the enemy's bullets, and comrades fell
on ever.V si(le- But he never received even the
DESCENDANTS OF COUNT DE GRASSE.
Count De Grasse, the commander of the French
fleet at York town, was married three times and
had six children, all by his first wife. The two
sons died without issue. The four daughters fled
to America to save their lives at the time of the
French .Revolution. Two died unmarried at
Charleston, in the year 1799. The third sister
died in New York, in 1844. The youngest of the
family, Sylvie, married in this country Monsieur
Francois Xarcisse Depau, by which marriage
there were seven children, all American citizens,
and they and their descendants are the only lineal
representatives of Admiral Count de Grasse. The (
eldest male representative and great-grandson of
Admiral de Grasse is Theodosius A. Fowler, of i
Llewellyn Park, Orange, New Jersey, his daugh- '
ter, the eldest great-granddaughter, bearing the
name (Sylvie de Grasse) of her grandmother.
A POETICAL BUT PROFANE GOVERNOR.
In looking over some old records yesterday a
Journal reporter ran across a message that was
sent by Jonathan .Jennings, then Governor of In
diana, to John C. Calhoun, Secretary of State.
There was a need here for some guns and ammu
nition, and Coventor Jennings sent a requisition
for them to Mr. Calhoun in the following words :
"Dear, good John C,
I send to thee
For three great guns and trimming?.
Pray send them to hand,
Or you'll be damned,
Jiy order of Jonathan Jennings,
'Governor of Indiana,' "
There should be fewer and better legislators.
The people do not want so many if they are only 1
of the right kind, just as the man in the restau- j
rant objected to the oysters, of which the waiter j
gave him twice the usual quaatity because they
were spoiled oysters. Legislators, like women,
oysters, and eggs, should be above suspicion. '

from the bureaus of the War Department touching
