Bii-.a-le. Col. Amnion, you will put the Tenth
Bri-tt ;ein motion as soon as you can see to move
at uawn. Find tlie enemy and whip him,"
wn the lawnic order. At 4 a. in. Bruce's
brigade advanced, the 1st Ky. on the right,
ths 2d Ky. on the left and the 20th Ky. in
suort a short distance in the rear. After
marching bait a mile, the skirmishers encoun
tered those of the enemy and drove them bick
upon the main line, where a battery opened
fire upon them. The Nineteenth Brigade had in
the meantime advanced abreast, and Hazeti's
fkirmish-Hnc, in company with the 1st Ky.,
lursed and took one of the guns, but were
rcjwiised hy its itfacrry -supports.
The liiiptgement now commenced in earnest.
THe Twenty-second, ordered to support the
Mneteonth Brigadcchaugedtbedirectiou of the
IstKy. to the right and brought the 20th Ky.
to The front line to support it. Both regiments
moved forward "with a -will under a galling fire
of artillery and musketry. The Tenth Brigade
advancing with the first streak of dawn, keen
ing its left close to the marsh, came at daylight
upon the clearing where Stuart's tents weie
still standing. Crossing it, Aininen entered
the forest, -where he halted the brigade. The
roar of artillery on his right announced the
opening of the battle. Still, beyond a thin line
of skirmishers, no enemy was in sight. Ad
vancing cautiously, he found bis left still pro
tected by the marshy grouud. He had moved
hi& lino of battle forward two miles.
ANDEliSOX'S EEGI5IENT DETACHED.
!The musketry fire extended to the left, and
presuKtly an order came (or the 6th Ohio to be
sent to tbe support c the Nineteenth Brigade.
The 24th Ohio advanced to the front line, and
not a moment too toon, for tho enemy, moving
to iiis right, attempted to turn the Union left.
"Steady, 24th!" exclaimed the fiery Ammcn
as his regiment, led by tiie gallant Fred Jones,
dashed forward into line. Before them was a
slight rise in the ground that served for a
breastwork, which was gradually increased in
altitude as Chalmers' brigade, moving forward,
attempted to cross it and Jeft its dead upon the
summit. Kelson's divisiou, advancing in line
toa tar, found its right wing exposed, and at 6
o clock was halted by order of Gen. Bnell.
Gen. Ivelson bad been obliged to leave bis
three batteries behind him in his march
through the swamp, and no transportation
coaid be furnished them by boat until alter
the infantry Jiad been forwarded from Savan

BEA.rEEG.UID HAS A BETELA.TIOJT.
The character of 2ekon's onset revealed to
Beauregard the arrival of Buell's troops. In
formation which he claimed to have received on
xhe previous day made it appear impossible lor
Buali to reach the field in time to save Grant's
shattered army on Monday. He says, in his
report; "About 6 o'clock on the morning of
the 7di, however, a hot fire of musketry and
artatiory, opened from the enemy's quarter on
our advanced line, assured me of the junction
of his forces, and soon the battle raged with a
fury which satisfied me I was attacked by a
largely sujerior force. But from the outset our
tr-'ops, notwithstanding their fatigue and looses
from the battle of the day before, exhibited
the most cheering veteraulike steadiness. On
iti right and cent the enemy was repulsed
in every attempt he made with his heavv col
umns in that quarter of tho field. On the Jeft,
however, and nearest to tbe point of arrival of
his re-ouforcornents, he drove forward line
a&cr line of hie fresh troops, which were met
T,it9u a courage and resolution of which onr
country may be proudly hopeful."
AUTUJ-EEY TO THE rEOXT.
Capt. Mcndenhall, -with the 4th Art, gal
loped forward aud took position to the right of
u open field, where he opened fire at once with
his sections of riliod guns. About 8:30 the iir
ing on both sides -was tremendous. The Four
teenth Brigade, led by Gen. Crittenden in per
fcon, bad in the meantime advanced to the right
of Kelbou, where it received its full share of at
toutiun. The skirmish-line, consisting of one
company each of the 11th and 26th Ky., were
deployed to the front where they had engaged
d drawn the cnt-my's skirmish-line away
from their right, and the brigade rested in line
oi battle until Xdsoa's second advance.
CRITTENDEN'S GALLANT CUAEGE.
In the sudden onset of the Confederates
which then oasuod. the 14th Wis. wavered for
an instant aud the 2Gth Ky. advanced to its
support. The furious charges of the- enemy
made along the entire front were met and re-puW-d.
Bartlett's battery on the right opened
a dustily cross-fire, aud a counter-charge fol
lowed, in which the enemy, yielding, wore fol
3osved one mile, where a battery was captured
after most of the gunners and horses had been
shot down at the guns. Owing to the densitv
of tbetbickot through which this charge was
made, it was impossible to maintain the align
ment of regiments, and when the advance
reached the battery it consisted of a few men
of all the regiments of the brigade.
THE CONFEDERATE COCNTEE-CHABGE.
Upon this unformed line the enemy made
an immediate charge, recapturing the battery
and forcing the Union trooje back to their fir?t
portion, where the line was reformed. The
fierce assault upon this portion of the line ex
tended to the extreme left, where tho brave
Atumen contended against a superior force

Col. Hazen's brigade, re-enforced by tho 22d,
had captured tho battery in its front, but was
forced back upon his reserves. " Col. Hazeu,"
says Nelson, "commanded the right brigade of
my division, carried it into action and main
tained it there most gallantl v. The heavy loss
in his brigade attests tho fierceness of the con
flict at this point The stylo in which Col.
Ammcn handled his brigade excited my admi
ration. At 9 o'clock Capt Terrili's battery of
the 5th Regular Art responded to Nelson's call
for another battery. It had just arrived on
the field and advanced on a ran to tho support
of Ammeu, where its trained cannoneers suc
ceeded in silencing a batrcry by a few shots,
and tho brigade at once advanced, only to be
met by a couutcr-charge and forced back to its
TERMLL'S BATTERY IN DANGER.
41 Terrili's battery, fighting in detached sec
tions, suflVred the loss of most of its men, and
the remainder saved it only by fixing prolongs
and firing as the guns were retired. Capt Ter
rill served one of Lieut Smyser's pieces and
he tho other. One of the caissons was left upon
the field all the horses being shot. But the
gallant Captain wasted none ol his shots each

Sam. Beatty, advancing at double-qnick, sent
by Crittenden, came upon the scene, accompa

from Veatch's brigades, while the Gth Ohio,
under the gallant Anderson, became the special
support of the sorely-pressed artillery fur

OF THE BATTLE.
Curtis Buck, Cedar Springs, Slick., writes as
follows of the abandonment of Myexs battery
by officers aud men reforred to in Hurlbutfs
official report :
I have been very much interested in your
report of tho Shiloh battle, which is very accu
rate. I was a member of Boss' bafetciy B, 1st
Jhch.), and in Gen. Prentiss' brigade. We
heard tho firing from our camp at abont sun
rise Sunday morning,and we were immediately
marched to the front, whieh was near an old
log bouse in a peach orchard. The 13th Ohio
battery was in our rear in coming on the fiekJ,
and as soon as they con Id pass us they double
quicked by us, passed through our skirmish
line, which was failing back, about one-third
the way across the pearh orchard. They passed
up into the woods on the other side of the field
and unlimbcred, and I do not think they had
been there three minutes before every man
ran aud left; the battery. I was young and
inexperienced, this being my first taste of
battle, but I thought it strange that those men
should leave that fine battery for the enemy; so
I called on the boys, and said: "Let's go np
there and see what the matter is." One or two
of our men followed, and when we got there
we found the battery so tangled up in tho
woods that wc were unable to get ont a single
piece, so I spiked two of the gnns, and then I
looked over in a ravine abont 20 rods distant,
where, as it appeared to mo then, the whole
rebel army was massed. Up to that time I had
never seen so many armed men. I looked
about me for a place of escape. 1 found that
the men who had come with me had gone.
Looking in another direction I saw a finely
dressed rebel officer, mounted on a horse, look
ing at our line. I cut one of the artillery
horses loose and got out of there as Quick as I
j could, but the horse had not run over ten rods
before be fell, and J. crawled in on my hands
and knees. When I came in the picket-line
the boys cheered me. I had not more than got
back to my battery before the ball opened hot,
and there we were oat in the open field without
auy protection. I have been in a great many
battles since, but that was tho hottest of all.
WTe held onr ground tv?til about 4 o'clock p, m.
Our ammunition was then all gone, as well a3
most of our men, aud we were trying to find a
road bu:k to the lauding that was "not full of
rebels, when we were taken in by a regiment
of rebel cavalry and kept prisoners until the
following June, and then paroled at Chatta
THE 72d OHIO.
E. 3LcCarty,72d Ohio, of Lane. Kansas, takes
Comrade Iiogue to task as follows:
Mr.Hoguesays: "Soon after sunrise tberebftls
burst through the 72d regiment's quarters,
drove us out of bed, and some ran with noth
ing but shirt and drawers on." Now, I want
to state a few facts that I know. On Sunday
morning, April 6, the men of the 72d regiment
had their breakfast at least an hoar earlier
than usual. The sun was not more than twenty
minutes high. While we were eating our
breakfast we hoard firing on picket in front of
us. The long roll beat We Jeft our hard
tuck: and coSeeand got in line of battle on the
double-quick- We then marched directly out
in front of our quarters about one hundred
yards, and there stayed in line of battle until we
had shot forty rounds of cartridges to the man.
About that time the rebels were a little scatter
ing in front of us, and we fell back to onr
quarters and refilled our cartridge-boxes with
forty rounds more and marched back to the
same place, where we formed line of battle and
-.vent to pelting away at the rebels again. It was
two hours and ten minutes from the time we
first formed line of battle before we were or
dered to fall back. In that two hours company
A (my company) lost some twelve men in
killed and wounded. Now, I think the 72d
regiment had just as much chance to know that
the devil would bo to pay soon as any troops
there. The Friday before the battle the rebels
fired on our pickets. General Buckland took
company A and three or four more companies
aud chased a squad of rebel cavalry five or six
miles chased them chiir to their main army,
at which time 3Iajor Crocket, of our regiment,
was taken prisoner.
To the Editor: In your issue of June 5
Comrade Cunningham, in speaking of tho fit
day at Shiloh, says: " I think it was the colonel
of the 8th Mo. that raised a whito rajf on his
sword." For obvious reasons. I think Comrade
Cunningham is mistaken. Ed. A. Waxk, 8th
SIo., Brownsville, Mo.
The colonel of the Sth Mo. was with his
regiment in Lew Wallace's division on tho
other side of Snake Crek at the time of Pren
tiss' surrender. Perhaps Comrade Cunningham
meant to write 18th instead of Sth Mo. Ed.

It may be of interest to American girls to
know what their English, cousins aro wearing
this season. A writer in tho London 2ruti,
describing the costumes afc a fashionable onlor
I like n well-made tweed of bronze color, turned
up sparingly with dark red, and worn with a red
velvet toque. A pule gray cashmere, trimmed
with marabout to match, ought to have been asuc
ecss, but it was not. I tried lo make ont why it
failed, but could not. More hnUsfaetory was a cos
tume of dark gray plubh, accompanied bysi&teel
beaJed bonnet, trimmed with a drapery of red
A-elvet. The best thought-out gray dress that I
saw had n skirt of statin, striped longitudinally
with blnck velvet. Tbo bodice and drapery were
made of gray vigogne, dotted with chenille llower
cts in ii darker shade. The pretty little gray straw
bonnet was trimmed with scarlet wing feathers,
ii a small red veil -mis tied across the upper part
of the face. I think thee little mask veils ought
to be called " fringe-guards " or "complexion
covers." A rod plush capo supplemented this
pretty costume. Supplements of the kind were
rouliy necessary, for the day was decidedly cold.
Neve rthel ess. we saw a damsel in pink cotton, Und
another in whito zephyr, making believe that it
va& hot weather. Tiiere were others who did not
find tlieir furs superfluous.
A rather btnrtiing cotton frock had the bodice
made of brick-red in its most aggressive tint, and
in the same material a long polonaise, which was
looped very high at the back, thereby rcvetding a
skirt of pale blue, spotted with red. The bonnet
wrs original. Made of brick-red, it was trimmed
with narrow red and pale blue' ribbons, which were
carried round the croun, and then drawn across
the hair nt the back, fastening at the right side
under a steel clasp, and falling thence in a shower
of loops. I saw some "postboy" hats, with no
brim whatever at the back, and one or two "hansom-cab"
bonnets, so called irom their having a
dip in the crown like that in the roof of a hantom.

strong eyes than others, and can read or
study for hours during the day or evening, and
for weeks or months in succession, without
injur'. Limiting sleep to three or four hours
daily for successive weeks would injure the
strongest eyes. Tho appearance- of a fine,
irregular line or speck before the eye in a
young person indicates some slight congestion
of the retina. In an older person glasses might
be indicated. If there is no pain aud no in

for alarm, our advice wonld bo to give your
eyes a rest or consult another physician in
whom you have more confidence.
F. W. S.: You are mistaken in your belief
(and a common one it is) that the women of the
South were the first to decorate their soldiers'
graves, and that tho North borrowed the cus
tom from them. It is a matter of record that
"Pap "Thomas was tho first to institute auy
care for the soldier dead, and it is to him alone,
as commander of the Army of the Cumberland,
that we are indebted for the system out of
which has grown tho custom of Decoration Day.
The South, however, was the first to term tho

the private soldier? They say had it not been for

Gen. Grant did plan, but it was tbo bone and sinew

thcc plans. What would his plans have amounted

To the EDiTour My father enlisted three days
after the fall of Port Sumter, and was mustered in
June 17, 1S61, in Co. F, 19th 111. The first active
service was through Missouri, along the Mississippi

life. Papa's name is Barney Simmons. He en

To Tne Editor; I was a weo little girl when
our dear President Lincoln was murdered. My
lather was captain of an ammunition boat. I had
two uncles and four roniins in the war. One cousin
died when only seventeen years old, while await
ing orders. One of my uncles, who was a captain,
had his arm shattered by a ball while talking to
one of his wounded men. 'His arm is useless, as
the bone is apart four inches. I am a great lover of
our dear old flag, and I think none of us should
ever forget what terrible sufferings our country
men went through. J certainly am a true blue,
being employed by "Uncle Sam." May be I am
too old to have ray letter put among yours, but I
could not help saying a few words. I was born in
1SG1 , so am 21 years old. We should always strive
lo serve God and love every one. Three cheers
for our good old country, The Tribune, and the
My papa's name is Samuel B.Hurlburt, Co. G, 9ih
Iowa. He emitted when IB, aud was wounded at
Kenesaw Mountain. He did not report his wound
for fear of frightening his mother, and that is one
of the rca.-jo.i3 why (although he bears the marks
and feels the effects of the wound) he cannot obtain
his wcU-earued pension. He also was wouuded
and taken pribouer at Linch Crock, S. C, Feb, 26,
1805, and marched away to Richmond and lodged
in Libby prison, after marching 15 days. There he
Jay for over a month, and was at lost paroled on
the day Richmond fell. I have two brothers
younger than myen, ageu 13 and 11 years. I am

good work. May God bless them all. I lova to

A TYPICAL SOLDIER'S FAMILY.
To the Editor: In answer to Humphrey, in
No. 35, 1 want to say that I, too, am tho son of a
soldier aud am proud of it. 1 am also a faithful
reader of Thk TiumjKE, the soldier's dear friend.
My father was a private in Co. C, 9Gth Ohio, and
saw Mr. Humphrey shot in the hand at tho battle
of Kenesaw Mountain. Father often tells us about
the "boyd," as ho calls them. This sounds so
strange to mc, as all the old soldiers here ore gray
with yeacs, yet he will call them "boys." lie
often tcll3 us in the evening when we are together
about their long and weary inarches; about their
" foraging scrapes," and about their terrible hard
battles, wher. so many of tbo " boys ' were killed
and never heard of afterwards. The other even
ing bo told us about a battle above the clouds, or
Lookout Mountain. Only think of it, two "great
armies lighting above tlie clouds !
There are four of U3, all going to school. Father
is sick so much; ho has toAvork so bard when ho
is able. He is getting $2 a month pension : is n

proud to ace him with his badge on. My uncle,
who lives here, was a sorgoant in father's company.
He cannot work; he lost bis health in the army;
he gets 22 pension. W aro all so glad when The

I am so glad you givo us n chance to speak to each

A BLIGrjTED CAREER,
The Work of Two Bullets at Gettys
burg A Sad Story.
The attention of a National Teibuke
representative was attracted to a man on tho
street in Washington last week. In spite of
tho disfigurement of a lost eye his face wa3
very intelligent and attractive. A high, broad
forehead, and tho expression of a gentle
hearted, kindly scholar, drew one to him
"I will introduce yon," said an acquaint-'
nuce; "Mr. Shivcly, this is TnE National
Thibune. National Tiiibunk, thi3 is Mr.
David Shivcly, who was so terribly wounded
at Gettysburg that his life was saved by almost
a miraclo. His experience was most remark
able. You must get him to tell it to you."
Tue National Tkibune intimated his
eagerness to hear it, aud opened tho question
by inquiring, as ox-soldiers naturally will:
"Where did yon belong, Mr. Shivcly?"
"Co. E, 114th Pa., First Brig., Second Div.,
Third Corps. I enlisted Aug. 23. 1862, at Phil
adelphia. I was then only io years old."
" Was Gettysburg your first battle ?"
"Ono; wo were at Frcdorickshurg."
"When wero you wounded? "
"In the secoud day's fight. Wc wcro out in
advance you remember the position of tho
Third Corps when tho charge was madeon
us, and we wero frightfully cut up. My com
pany went with 40 men; only six .got out un
hurt. I wits in the net of firing when I re
ceived a ball through my throat, fracturing my
right arm, shattering and disabling it. I fell
to the ground, with the blood streaming out in
a torrent. A little while after 1 attempted to
riso, when I received tho bullet which cut out
my right eye. 1 fell to tho ground again and
lay there until tho fight was over. I fouud I
was then in the hands of the enemy. One rebel
came up to me and tried tokill me with a knife,
but he was driven off. Afterward another camo
up and helped me gave me water, for the need
of which I wa3 almost perishing, aud helped mo
into a wagon. I was so grateful to him that
since the war I built a little church at York
town witb my savings, and gave it to the peo
ple. I had a terrible time getting off tbo bat
tlefield and to the hospital at Baltimore, where
was the first placo thcro was any opportunity
to properly care for us. It did not seem possi
ble that I could live, and my mother was sent
for to see me die. But I did not die. For
more than two years my wounds healed
so slowly that they did not seem to be
healing afc all. I suffered intensely all the
time. During much of it I had to have my
band3 and feet almost constantly in water
to ease the terrible pain in my right hand ; in
fact I kept my left hand in water until the
water ate off the flesh from my fingers. I had to
bavo nine operations on my hand and arm.
Tho joints became stiff during the long heal
ing, and they bad to be broken over. I bavo
no use now of my right hand or my arm, and
must write with my left. After the operations
were performed the blood aud corruption would
run from my fingers. Previous to these opera
tions many fly-blisters were applied to my hand,
and often when they were taken off the skin
would come with them. So raw and tender
were my fingers that I could not bear to wrap
them up separately. On awakening in the
morning my fingers would be matted together,
and in order to keep them from growing in
this manner I would take a string and with
one end in my mouth and the other in my
hand I would cut my fingers apart. This is
only one of tho countless miseries I endured
during my long convalescence. Every morning
when I arose tho first thing I did was to run
to tbo hydrant, and fill my shoes with water
to ease the pain."
"It is a wonder that tho long-continued pain
did not drive yon crazy. Of course all your
prospects in life were ruined. What profession
had you intended to follow?"
"I had desired to be a minister, but I could
do nothing to lit myself. After I got measure
ably well I was given a place as gatekeeper by
the Whitney & Co. Car Wheel Works, Phila
delphia. I afterwards attended Dfckerson's Col
lege afc Carlisle, Pa., but I bad vertigo and other
troubles which interferred with my studies.
I was then given a position as watchman of tho
Treasury here in Washington, where I re
mained four years, when I was appointed Super
intendent of the National cemetery at York
town. I was afterward transferred to the Cavo
Hill National Cemetery near Louisville. For tho
last lb months I have been Superintendent o:
the" cemetery at Raleigh."
"You get a pension, of course, to eke out
your scanty pay as superintendent? "
" Only $24 a month. I have applied for an
increase to $30, but on overy side I encounter
some red-tapo stumbling block. One would
think that with so clear a record as I have,
with my lost eye and with my mangled and
nseless right band aud arm, there should be no
trouble whatever, yet I have been put; off for
years with all manner of unreasonable delays."

at Van Conver, W. T., and recently ordered to
Arizona, Las borne a conspicuous part in the
protection of tbo frontiersettlements on the
Pacific coast. Prom the date of the battle of
San Pasqualo, in Southern California, under
General Stephen W. Kearney, in 1S-17, up to

ritorial region extending from the -J9th parallel
on tho north to the Mexican boundary on tho
south, commonly designated as the Pacific
coast. Aside from this better known portion

Washington Territory will recall numberless
instances where it has marched, fought, en
dured and suffered that they might dwell in
peace and pursue their avocations without
