Ft niggled hard to maintain them xvithout help
irom town or Government. I, at the time the

AN INQUIRY ANSWERED.
T the Editor National Tribune:
In jaiswrr to John Wainrite's question, per
r. it me to say that Thomas J. Daniel enlisted
j' company A, Seventh regiment Kentucky
h.tnitry x-oltmteers, under Cajitain E. H. Tred-w.-vas
a prix-ate. He xvas selected as bass
diumtner of the (Jkl Seventh, xvhieh xvas en
lis'i d alout ihe 20th of August, IcGl, at Camp
1 m Ic Robinson, in Kentucky. Daniel served
:- bas drummer until the regiment xvas paid
off, as we ahvays called it.) lie then laid his
f.ruin down and took tip his ride, and shortly
al'r xvas promoted to corporal, and from cor
poral to bergeaut, sergeant-major, adjutant,
major, and lieuteiiaiit-colonel,all of xvhieh took
place in three years, in Seventh Kentucky in
iantry. Daniel is now, as I am informed, a
teacher of music in Louisx-ille, Ky.
Very respccfully, John T. Brewer,

FUEVIVOES OF THE SECOND VERMONT.
To the Editor National Tribune:
At the recent Reunion of the "Vermont Vet
i -an Soldiers," at Burlington, company II, of
i..e old Second Vermont, xvhieh xvas recruited
in Fletcher, had not less than txventy of its
(jrinuuil members present, hesides several re
cruits xvho xvent out later in the xvar, and there
are as many or more of the original members
xvho are supposed to he still living, hut xvcre
not present on that occasion. For a company
xvhieh xx'as engaged in txventy-cight battles,
!' sides innumerable skirmishes, during its
three years of active service, this seems to me
lo he a xcry unusiil circumstance.
Very respectfully, Alon.o Kingsley.

your interesting account of
the engagement between Colonel Jacobs and
Geueral Morgan's forces at Horseshoe Heud in
May. 1st.:;. A 1 was a pait of that same, being
the "Captain I.ivK an officer hearing a flag of ;
true' demanding immediate surrender." I must
say that having approached tho skirmishers I
xx-&s met and escorted within the line and de
tained there a prisoner, in spite of my protest
against such a violation of the rules of xvar,
until preparat ions xvcre completed for the cross
ing of the river. During the time I was held
in durance, after the lapse of a reasonable time
for my return General Morgan became uneasy
about my personal safety, and then, as you say,
"impatient;" hut although he demanded my
release several times I xvas not given up for the
reason gix-en hisimsscnger, 'as I have heard,)
that I xxras engaged in arranging tho terms of
surrender. Colonel Jacobs and I laughed over
the matter, xvheu I met that gallant gentleman
a year or txvo alter the xwir had closed. Hut it
xvas rather sharp pract ice on the part of Col.
llolemau, Major Iloxle, Captain Harrison, or
somebody, nex-ertheless. Don't you think so?
Very truly yours,
Wm. J. Davis.
To the Editor National Tribune:
We have a thriving Post. G. A. R., in this
place; our organization numbers about sisty
fix'C members. Walter A. Barras is commander.
I am a subscriber to your valuhble' paj.er, tiiul
look for its arrival every Saturday x'.ith great
pleasure as a dear comrade and friend. J ad
mire its hold and fearless attacks on the enemies
of those who left lox'ing fi tends and dear ones
at home and marched manfully shoulder to
shoulder to the protection of our glorious old
Hag and country in the dark days of our civil
xvar. As a member of the (J. A. R., atid an
honorable soldier during the whole xvar, I
recommend The National Tribune as the
paper for the old soldier and the G. A. R. . It
has no equal in the xvorld. No other paper
sends into Congress such broadsides xvith such
good aim and judgement for the rights of tho
ex-soldiers and sailors. Our"hox's" like xour
style. Keep your guns still on the enemy till i
evcry soldier in the land gets his rights. En

FARRAGUT POST FIELD SPORTS.
Farragut Post, Grand Army of the Republic,
of New York, indulged in some interesting
field sports cm .Monday last. Those who were
on tho grounds fully enjoyed the sport. Tho

some. Among the more prominent exentsof the
day was the HOyards running race for hoys, sons
ot x'etcinns, the prize being a silx-er cup, xvon
by Austin Frank; the second prize being $5.
In the '140-yard hurdle race, txvo heats in
three, a gold Grand Army badge xwis xon
by John Feitzer, tho second prize, a barrel
of ale, falling to Mr. Phelps. Tho mile and a
half toe xvalking match xx-as xx-on hy Fred. W.
Ritchie, Mr. Jones being second. In tho fat
men's race, 220 yards, J. E. Rourk passed tho
line first, Wm. Miller second. Then followed
the usual go-as-you-please, jumping and run
ning races, xvith tho sack race, for xvhieh there
xvas only one sack needed, the wearer having a
walk over. In the riflo shooting William

or eight competitors.

DAN. VOORHEES' TARIFF SPEECH.
Washington, July 15. An amusing sight
xx-as presented in the Senate the other clay xvhen
Senator Voorhees delivered his tariff speech.
Near him sat his old antagonist, Gen. Tom.
Nelson, listening intently to tho presentation
of the same arguments that he had used on in
numerable occasions xvhen Voorhees had been
his freo-trade opponent. The "Tall Sycamore"
xvas xvell posted on theothersidc of the question,
but xxas not equally at homo in tho nex--found
faith. It x-as evident that Nelson had had a
hand in the production of the speech, and felt
his ability to deliver it xvith greater easo. A
smilo perx-aded tho features of the handsome cx
Kentuckian as memory reverted to the old-time
contests xx-hen as yet the orator xvas is the gall
of bitterness and bonds of iniquity on thesubject
of a protective tariff. Washington Correspondent
