THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, JULY 24, 1884.
Department Troubles The Cholera
Scare A Well-known Yeteran.
There las always been more or less friction in
the diflferont Departments of the Government
ts the result of a difference of opiuion between
officials as to tho construction that should bo
placed upon section 1754. of tho Bcvised Statutes,
declaring that, other things being equal in ap
pointments, proforouco to civil office should be
given ex-soldiers and Bailors who have boon
honorably discharged by reason of disability
Incurred in line of duty. It is held by
Eomethat this section of tho Statutes does not
apply to promotions, but inasmuch as theso
promotions are thomsolves in the nature of re
appointments, that position can scarcely bo
logically maintained. A case in point is that
"which has recently occurred in tho office of
Bixth JLoditor Ela, of tho Treasury Department,
where liireo vacancies have occurred in what
are taiewa as third-cbtss or $1,000 clerkships.
The heads of divisions were informed that theso
vacancies existed end were requested by the
Auditor to report him the names of all candi
dates deserving of promotion, accompanied by
a statement of t&oir official grading, length of
service, military record and date of last pro
motion, together with such papers from oulsido
parties as they might choose to file, recom
monding thorn for promotion. Out of this
number it was the duty of the Sixth Auditor
to saloot the throe candidates that were, in his
judgment, tho most deserving of promotion
and forward thorn to iho Secretary for his ap-
fttovai. In the case in question there was a
arge number of candidates for promotion.
Among them being Mr. John C Hawley, one
of the Voe-ProeWonts of tho National Associa
tion of ex-Prisoners of War, who besides hav
ing a good record for efficiency and military
Eervice, had n record as an inmate of those dens
of cruelty the Confederate prisons. This is
his military record as furnished by the War
Department: Enlisted in Co. G, 6th N. Y.
Cav., Nov. 2S, 1S61; discharged May 1C, 1SG5;
captured Nov. 23, 1363; paroled April 28,
2865; confined in Belle Isle, Andersonville,
Savannah, Lawton, Blackshear and Thomas
He was recommended for appointment by
both Senators of his own State (Michigan); by
Humorous Congressmen ; by CoL B. G. Inger
Boll, Gen. Hobinson, of Ohio, the author of
the Eoblnson prisoners' bill, who made a
Special recommendation in his behalf, and fi
nally by Gen. John A. Logan. The Sixth
Auditor, however, who, although a devoted
friend of tho Boldisr and a most effi
cient executive, in this instance seems to
have been guided by the report of the
Chief of tho BooTtkeepers Division, who
presented the names in the order of their office
grading, (the idea of estimating tho value of a
clerk's services by the standards of a public
School, did not send np Comrade Hawley's
name, but recommended for promotion the fol
lowing: John M. Wright, of Indiana. Military
record : Co. A, SSth Ohio, and Co. H, 135th Ind ;
S. A. Svvails, of South Carolina. Military rec
ord: 54th Mass. colored; John C. Farqnhar, of
.Maryland. Military record: None.
Mr. Farqnhar, of Maryland, does not appear
to have had any military record. In favor of
the appointment of the hitter there were no
recommendations whatever on file, but in tho
case of Wright there was a letter from Mr. D.
S. Alexander, Fifth Auditor of the Treasury,
csking his appointment on the ground that he
was a friend of Senators Sherman, of Ohio, and
Harrison, of Indiana, as also of Congressman
Calkins, of Indiana, although the latter's name
appears as one of the indorses on the papers
of Mr. Hawley, and concludes by saying that
Ms appintment would be a great favor. These
three recommendations were favorably sub
mitted to tho Secretary of the Treasury last
week, and his attention was called to the in
justice to other more deserving candidates by
their selection, whereupon he promptly sus
pended action upon the recommendations, and
directed the Sixth Auditor to furnish for his
examination a list of &) promotions recom
mended by the latter's chiefs of divisions, to
gether with the official grading, length of
service, military record, and all papers filed in
lehalf of the several candidates. No one who
inows Mr. Folger can doubt that he will do
full justice when all the facta are laid before
THE CHOLEEA SCABE.
A stone's throw from the The Tmbuke of
fice is the building in which is located tho of
fice of the Supervising Surgeon-General, John
35. Hamilton, of tho Marine Hospital Service.
Dr. Hamilton, although a young man, compara
tively, stands at the head of his profession. In
reply to a question by The Tbxbuxe man as
to "vvnoa the Government first began to take
precautions against the introduction of cholera
into this country, he replied that they had in
effect been guarding against its introduction
ever since the announcement of the outbreak
of the epidemic in Damietta, Lower Egypt, last
year. Immediately upon its appearance there
becoming known, tho Secretary of the Treas
ury isstted, on his recommendation, an
order prohibiting the importation of rags from
that country, the instant effect of which was to
Btop all shipments to the United States. Tho
rags were accumulated and stored at Liver
pool. The demand for the rags on tha part of
cr paper manufacturers (and particularly the
Seymour Company) was so great, however,
3mt upon a conference with its representatives,
certain regulations were prescribed for tho dis
infection of the rags at Cairo and other points
1efore being chipped to this country, which
wore formulated and promulgated by tho State
popertt&eot, under which arrangement their
importation was permitted. Inspectors on tho
part of the United States were appointed, and
they were required to certify the name of the
consignee ia this country, the place where the
rags wore disinfected, and the process of disin
fection. It was expected that cholera would
znako its appearance in Europe.
At Toulen, however, where it first broke
cut, the United States has no Consul, and tho
rst news of the epidemic reached this country
through the medium of the press cable dis
patches. On the 2d of July List, immediately
upon the announcement, the Secretary of the
Treasury, on tho recommendation of Surgeon
Genoral Hamilton, issued an order to all Col
lectors of Customs, directing them to require
evidence that noao of the baggage of returning
travelers by the various ocean lines had been
shipped from the infected districts since June
20 last. Meanwhile, through the State De
partment, direct inquiry was made of our Con
sul at Marseilles as to the actual character and
prevalence of the epidemic, and in reply tho
ibJlowiBg dispatch, dated the 3d instant, was
Situation worse at Toulon. Deaths average 10

of wool disinfected, sulphurous acid being gen
erally used for that purjKKe.
"What," said the representative of TheTbib
UKE, "is the probability of the cholera being

"That depends largely," replied the Surgeon-General,
"upon the efficiency of the
qviunmtine that may be established. As yet,
"while our own Government has taken prepar
ation, as you have already eeen, to guard

"Wist," ooutfneed The Tbh$uj.-e man, "do
you think ought to bo done to prevent it spread
ing, Jthould it once make its appearance en our
W-Well," said tho Surgwon-GeneraL " tho pre
cautsane iay bo summed np, in the werds of
xny last annual report, as 'municipal cleanli
ness, isolation hospitals, and international
Suaraiiaee.' The first essential is to secure a
trtrict quarantine; tho second is cleanliness.
The streets of cities should be thoroughly
swept imtl cleaned of refuse matter; the sew
ers sfeeold bo flushed; sad the inhabitants
toouldoiUior use filters or bail their water in
rocr to guard neatest impurities. Por ii
timo being the whole police force chould be
come practical sanitary inspectors, and they
should see to it that all garbage is promptly
removed; that sinks and old wells are cleaned
out, eta The third important requisite is tho
establishment of au isolation hospital. Such a
hospital, as doubtless most people have forgot
ten, was established at Boston during the epi
demic of 1S49, and all cases discovered by tho
polico and sanitary inspectors were conveyed
there for treatment. As a result, tho progress
of tho diseaso was materially checked. For
the purpose of a hospital, a temporary wooden
building would sufficiently answer the pur
pose, but it shonld be supplied with all modern
conveniences, and especially with a furnace-for
the destruction of infected bedding and the
evacuations of tho patients." w
" What is tho character of the disease, and
what are its symptoms?" asked The Teibuke
"The first symptom is cramps, followed by
vomiting and diarrhea an aggravated cholera
morbus, in fact. As the diseaso progresses, tho
tho watery portion of the blood is carried off
with the evacuations, and thus tho patient
finally dies from exhaustion and collapse. This
is characteristic of tho third stage of tho dis
ease, in which will be seen tho shrunken,
pinched face, and tho staring glassy eye. At
this time, too, there is a great thirst owing to
the loss of water from the system."
"How long- does it take the disease to run
"As to that, I may Eay that there is a great
variability in the duration of tho disease some
patients having been known to die in a couple
of hours while others survive 43 hours or more."
"There is a decided difference of opinion, is
thero not, Doctor, in medical circles, as to tho
treatment for cholera?J'
"Well," said he in reply, "the first thing
that a man shonld do, if seized with cramps,
which is the first symptom of the disease, is to
call his physician. As for tho modes of treat
ment thero are only two, but they difler widely
in their character. The first proceeds on the
theory that tho disease is tho result of poison
introduced into tho system, and which should
be immediately gotten rid of, and that the
symptoms observed are merely nature's evi
dences of the fact. This method is the so-called
Fyer treatment, which originated in Mauritius
(Java Islands) somewhere about 1S55.
the MATntrrros method.
" It consists simply of the use of powerful
emetics and purgatives, promptly administered,
and in such quantities as to empty entirely tho
intestinal trap before collapse can take place.
This treatment, I should say, which was gen
erally resorted to by planters of .Mauritius,
proved eminently successful, but it has not
been received with general favor by the medi
cal profession cither in this or the Old World.
Tho second method, and that commonly in
use, consists in administering opiates and
stimulants opiates for the purpose of arresting
the cramps and diminishing tho eecretions,and
stimulants in order to support powers of tho
system. The half dozen or more popular mix
tures which are sold by the druggists as cholera
remedies are compounded,on this basis. In ad
dition, however, to theso internal remedies, un
der both methods, resort is generally had to the
application of he3t to tho extremities and the
HOW TO FIGHT XT.
"What do you regard as the most efficient
means of fightirftj the cholera, should it once
become epidemic in this country?"
"As to that I shonld say that by all means
the most important thing is the destruction of
the evacuations from cholera patients, and es
pecially those evacuations which otherwise
would find their way iuto the common sewer,
and thereby bo discharged into some river,
contaminating the water from which tho citi
zens on tho borders of the stream further down
derive their supply, and thus communicating
SO ULKD QTJA2ASTIKE POSSIBLE.
"Suppose the cholera had already reached
Eome American port, do you think it could bo
prevented from spreading by the adoption of
land quarantines the quarantining of one
State against another?"
"That depends," he said, "upon the charac
ter of communication between adjacent towns.
The germs of cholera, it is well known, are
readily carried by water from place to place, as
well as by clothing, cargoes of rage, &c In
my opinion the most important thing to bo
doneJShould the disease make its appearance
in this country, is to insure the destruction by
combustion of the evacuations from cholera
THE KATIOJTAL BOABD OP HEALTH.
It should be stated that at the last session
of Congress, J. Floyd King, of Louisiana, in
troduced a resolution in the House, appropriat
ing $200,000 for an epidemic fund to bo ex
pended under the direction of the National
Board of Health. Tho resolution was referred
to the Committee on Public Health, however,
and as that committee had just reported against
making any appropriations of moneys to bo
disbursed by tho National Board of Health, it
declined to turn over the fund to the latter.
As a matter of fact, the National Board of
Health for some time past has been a defunct
institution, and as the ability of the Marine
Hospital Service to deal with epidemics has
been fully demonstrated, there is really no
reason why it Bhould not be entirely abolished
instead of being allowed to keep up this pre
text of an existence. An attempt has already
been made to induce the President to turn
over the epidemic fund to this Board, but inas
much as tho Marine Hospital Service is fully
equipped and able, through its connections, to
effectually deal with the epidemic should it
break out in this country, they havo as yet
failed of the chance to get their hands into the
The matter was under discussion at Satur
day's Cabinet meeting, but the Presidont de
clined to interfere with tho action of Secretary
Folger, and it was decided to establish, by
means of the Bcvenue Marine Service, a sani
tary patrol along the coast to prevent the land
ing of vessels from foreign ports which cannot
show clean bills of health. Tho following proc
lamation was issued:
Feeling It my duty, I hereby call upon all per
sons who ore intrusted with the execution of quar
antine regulations to be diligent and oa the alert
In order to prevent the introduction of the pesti
lence which, we all regret to learn, lias made Ita
appearance in some of the countries of Europe, be
tween which and the porta of tho United States in
tercourse is direct and frequent.
I further advise that the cities and towna of tho
United States, whether on the coast or on the lines
of interior communication, by sound canilarv reg
ulations and the production of cleanliness, be pre
pared to resist tho power of the diseaso and to
mitigate its severity.
And I further direct the Consuls of the United
States in the porta where the pestilence has made
or may make its appearance to ezerclse vigilance
in carrying out tho instructions heretofore given,
? JlJ miunicating to the Government of tho
United States any information of valuo relating to
the progress or treatment of the disease.
The funds available amount to $78,000. The

It was Surg.-Gen. Hamilton who attended
Mrs. Gen. Bosecrans in her List illness, and it
was owing to his skillful treatment of hex
malady that her life wa3 prolonged.
THE BOYS' SEND-OFF.
The Grand Army boys of tho Department of
the Potomac took their departure from this
aty on Saturday evening by the 10 o'clock
t"Vn, y2a llie Pennsylvania route. At 8:30
o clock they assembled in Masonic Temple,
and at 9 o'clock escorted by the Veteran Corps
headed by the Marino Band, tho assist
tant band master of which, Mr. Petrola,
had volunteered their services for the occa
sion, proceeded to the residence of Gen.
John A. Logan, who succeeded the late la
mented Gen. Stephen A Hurlbut, the first
Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Armv, and
whoso order, dated May 5, 1868, announcing tho
20th of May of that year as a Memorial Day for
the decoration of tho graves of the Nation's
heroes, established tho custom which has ever
since .been followed. As the column turned
into 12th street and approached the General's
bouse, the band struck up " Marching Through
Georgia," end tho crowd in the street loudly
applauded. Department Commander Alexan
der, stepping out of tho line, ascended the
stops of tho house, accompanied by Post De
partment Commander Burdett and Assistant
Adjutant-General Ingram, and escorted Gen
Logan to his carriage to which a pair of
high-mottled young Virginia horses were
attached, which pranced and danced as tho
band struck np " Bally Bound tho Flag." The
column proceeded by way of New York avenue,
Fifteenth street, and Pennsylvania avenue to
tho depot of the Baltimore & Potomac Bail
road, whero a great throng of spectators had
assembled. On reaching tho entrance to tho
depot tho column formed in line and presented
arms. Gon. Logan and Commander Alexander
then alighted, and tho band played "Hail to
tho ChieC" The column then moved into tk.9
train-yard and drew up in front of the special
car, set apart for tho accommodation of tho
delegates. As Gen. Logan appeared at tho
window of the car ho was enthusiastically
cheered, and, coming to the platform, ho bowed
his acknowledgments, but declined to make
any Bpecch. As tho train moved off the band
played "The Girl I Loft Behind Mo" in happy
allusion to Mrs. Logan.

Among the callers at The National Tbib
TJNE office last week was Capt. Charles Myer

ville, Ind., a Post, by the way, which the
Inspector-Genoral pronounces ono of the very
best in the State. The Captain went out in tho
14th Ind. as an enlisted man and rose regularly
through all the grades. His timo was within
three days of being up wheu ho was severely
wounded at Cold Harbor, into which action ho
led 23 men, of whom but two went back un
hurt. The Captain is now a book-keeper, and
has been in ono house for 17 years. He has
been trying to get some physical recreation at
tho Greenbrier White Sulpher Springs and at
Old Point Comfort, and naturally wandered to

Jame3 Hone, Co. E, Slst N. Y., Ohio, N. Y.,
calls attention to the following item in the
Utica Observer, and asks if any one can verify
tho facts stated therein:
A few days ago in Rochester died a woman who
will b& remembered and mourned by every mem
ber of the old Slst N. Y. Her name was Alice, wife of
Wm. B. Mullen. She was a daughter of the lato
Robert and Eachael Kent, of Oswego. When tho
Slst was organized Mr. Kent enlisted. Alice waa
then a child of 10 yeara. Both the mother and
daughter accompanied the regiment to the war and
remained with it until it was muitered out. Alice
mother and daughterwere present at all the battles
in which the regiment participated. On that terrible
morning at Cold Harbor, where the regiment waa
nearly wiped out of existence, losing 19 officers and
250 killed and wounded in 15 minutes and which,
by the way, occurred Just 20 yeara ago Mr. Kent
wa9 badly wounded, but his life was saved by care
ful nursing on the part of the wife. Many others of
those volunteers owe to this woman, and daughter,
who has just died, debts of gratitude for many
helpless on the field. They also spent some time

Kent, wife of Bobert Xent, sr., private of Co.
B, 81st N. Y., went with the 81st from Oswego,
N. Y., in company with her daughter, Alice, to
Albany, N. Y.; from Albany to Staten Island,
and from there to Washington, and there Mrs.
Kent and her daughter remained, doing the
washing for most of the men and officers of Co.
B. There were also at Camp Ejilorama the
wives of Corporal V. D. Babcock, Private Jas.
M. Carpenter, and Private Geo. Johnson, all of
Co. B. Theso four women marched with the
81st to Alexandria, Va., and from there accom
panied it to Newport JSTews, Va., where, by or
ders fromthe commanding General, they were
not permitted to go any further. They re
mained at Newport News till after the battle
of Fair Oaks, or Seven Pines, Va., May 31,
1862, at which Bobert Eont, sr., and his son,
Bobert, jr., were both wounded, and Bobert
Kent, sr., never did duty with the 81st after
the battle just mentioned. His son Bobert,
however, recovered, and was aeain wounded at
tho battle of Cold Harbor, Va., June 3, 186-L
I well remember the Kent family, and call to
mind that Alice waa most always called "Sis"
by the boys of our company. Sho was a modest
girl, of a very retiring disposition, and never
rude nor forward. Bobert Kent, sr., ha3
gone to his reward, carrying with him a rebel
bulletthat tho best surgical skill failed to ex
tract from between the bones of his right fore
arm. Bobert Kent, jr., is still living at Oswe

ANOTHEE COIEEADE'S EECOIXECTIONS.
To the Editoe: The Kent family wero
members of Co. B. There was ".Old Bob " and
"Young Bob," tho "old lady" and "Iittlo
Alice." I saw young Bob (the only surviv
ing member of the family) in 03wego two
veek3 ago. He told me of the recent death of
his sister Alice. The family played a promi
nent part in the Peninsular campaign, " They
shared their blankets and tents together, and
marched and fought in all kinds of weather,"
and I am surprised to think that Comrade
Hone should have forgotten them; but 22
years is a long time to remember all of the
events of an exciting war. The mother and
daughter were with the regiment every day
from the time we left Oswego till after the
battle of Pair Oaks. They marched from New
port News to Yorktown, from Yorktown to
Fair Oaks, and wero on tho battlefield there
during tho fight. My impression is that the
mother and daughter went to care for tho sick
and wounded in tho hospital after Fair Oaks,
and that they were not present at tho battle of
Cold Harbor. It ia pleasing to hear from one
of the "forty-five." Would that I had the
names, company and rank of all who wero so
providentially cared for to return with tho
command in '65. I went out with tho regiment
and camo homo with it, being absent ouly 10
months during the time, part of which I spent
in Andersonville and Florence prisons, two in
hospital and Camp Parole, and one at horns on
sick furlough. E, B. McCoxly, Drummer, C03.

Bismarck's Raid on American Pork.
Talk With Ex-Minister Sargent.
Ono of the aids on The National T2ibtjne's
staif, reconnoiterifag through tho Biggs House,
saw seated at a window a pleasant-faced gentle
man, with quick, bright eyes and a fine head,
thickly covered with snow-white hair. Ho
was dressed neatly and plainly, and looked to
be a man of business and affairs, capable of
thoroly understanding any problem to which
ho might address himsolf and accustomed to
achieving success in whatever ho undertook.
It wa3 the Hon. A. A. Sargent, of California,
ono of tho brilliant examples of our country's
self-made men, and a gentleman whose unaided
merits raised him to the highest offices in tho
gift of his State. He has been given promi
nence lately by tho manly stand he made, aa
Minister to Germany, in defense of hia coun
try's interests and dignity. This assertion
shows how conscientiously American and loyal
Mr. Sargent is. Ho could have made of his
office the pleasant sinecure too many of our
Ministers make of theirs. He could havo
played the snpplo courtier at the palace, re
ceived his reward in the flattering social atten
tions which foreign potentates bestow upon
pliant Embassadors and Ministers. But Mr.
Sargent, as soon as he saw an attack leveled at
his country, resented it, and resented it with
such effectiveness and skill that Bismarck was
in tho greatest danger of being foiled, and only
saved himself by tho exercise of au arbitrary
power that called down upon him tho general
denunciation of the Germans. He was able to
make Mr. Sargont's position at the Court very
unpleasant, however, and that gentleman asked
to bo rolieved, which our Government granted
in a way very flattering to him. He was of
fered the mission to St. Petersburg, and tho
State Department and both Houses of Congros3
united in strongly commending his course.
" The pretense that American pork is speci
cially unhealthful is entirely fraudulent, is it
not, Mr. Sargent?" said The Tiubunk's aid,
in tho course of a conversation ho entered upon
with that gentleman.
"Entirelyso; entirely so," ho replied. "Ameri
can pork is really tho healthiest in tho world.
Our hoga run in the fields and woods and eat
sweet, sound grain and nuts and drink pure
water, whilo those of Europe aro shut up and
fed on swill and offal. It has not been shown
in a single instance that a case of trichina
aTpse from eating American pork, while the
trichina has raged more furiously than ever
since the exclusion of American meats. Tho
great outbreak at Emerslebeu, whero 60 persons
died and over 400 wero sick, took place nearly
a year after the exclusion of American pork."
"That is certainly pretty conclusive evi
dence." "Another thing," continued Mr. Sargent;
" curing and salting such as American meats
are subjected to kills tho trichina, whero any
exists. Tho trichina has only a short life. In
the outbreaks at Emersleben, thoso who ate tho
pork within 3G hours after it was killed all
died, whilo those who did not eat it until a
week or two afterward had some chance for
" Why, do they eat pork raw within 36 hours
after it is killed?"
"Certainly. Strange as it may seem, they
are actually fond of raw fresh pork. I can
understand men liking to eat uncooked meats
and fish that have been for some time dried or
pickled, but fresh meats are quite another
thing. I pointed this out to the German Min
ister, and said that what thoy wanted was not
inspectors, hut ccoka. The official newspaper
replied that such was tho national taste, and
we must take it as it wa3."
"This exclusion only extends to American
pork, does it not?"
"Yes. Eussian and Hungarian pork ia ad
mitted the 6ame as German pork. Thi3 is
because the Junkers, the stupid old Conserva
tives and land-owners, whom Bismarck is
petting, do not fear the competition from there,
for the Eussiana and Hungarians cannot raise
porkany cheaper than the Germans can. Then,
again, it is Bismarck's policy to draw Bussia,
Austro-Hungary, and Italy closer to Germany,
and he loses no opportunity to propitiate them,
especially when he can do it at the expense, of
a Nation like ours, which will not resent the
kicks and cufls it gets in this wav."
" But is not this singling us ont for discrimi
nation against a flagrant insult?"
"Certainly it is. It is a violation of a solemn
treaty with ua. Any number of wars have
been fought on grounds similar to this, though
not always with so good a reason as this would
givo. No nation able to resent would pas3 over
such affront unnoticed."
" What is your idea of tho proper method of
retaliation ? "
"I would have Congress confer on the Presi
dent ample power to exclude from our ports
such articles as in his judgment lie may deem
it wise to exclude, and maintain the exclusion
at his discretion. Then, I would have him use
that power to bring Germany, France, and
other countries that have discriminated against
us, to their senses. TJnle33 we do something of
this kind our people are at their mercy."
"On what can wo retaliate against Ger
many?" "They send us great quantities of cloaks,
bronze.?, porcelains, hosiery, etc., upon which
they make large profits, and. which it would
hurt them very much to exclude from our
"2s Bismarck's policy popular at home?"
"Not at all, only with the Junkers or aristo
crats. It is very unpopular with tho working
classes, from whom it takes away meat almost
altogether. They cannot afford to buy the
high-priced home meats. How can a Saxon
whoso average wages aro $2 a week afford to
buy high-priced meat ? You saw an account
the other day of workingmen hissing and curs
ing Bismarck. That was on account of this
taking away tho meat from thoir tables and
A Hundred Baltics In the West.
Capt. M. P. Thatcher, who toss from the
ranks to he captain of Co. B., 2d Mich. Cav., has
told the story of that splendid regiment's career,
and incidentally of much of the fighting in tho
Mississippi Yalley, in a book published by
himself at Detroit, and entitled "A Hundred
Battles in the West." Ho takes for his en
couragement Gen. Logan's statemeat that "tho
full history of tho great rebellion will never
be known until every regiment and every
company has been heard from." In truth, ho
need not have wanted encouragement, for he
has given us a very readable book, full of soL
dierly spirit and tho genuine flavor of tho
camp, the march and tho battle. In his pre
face he saya with truth: " There ia one point
upon which this volume can be referred to
with pride it contains very little that can he
called ' old.' A special effort has bean made to
print only 'unpublished records and with
only two unimportant exceptions that idea has
been followed." It is a book which ovory sol
dier will delight in.

"Allow me to introduce Mrs. M. E. Denni
son, of New York, a daughter of tho late Judge
D. E. McNaughton, of Mumford, N. Y., said
Captain Dajri3, of Mansfield Post, No. 35, G. A.
B., to an Express reporter, at tho Mansion
House yesterday. The lady wore a badge a3
Department Inspector of the Woman's Belief
Corp3 of the State, practically the highest of
fice in that new auxiliary of the Grand Army.
one is quite military loosing, it that describes
a tall.straight woman, with much earnestness
and vigor in her manner, with well-cut fea
tures, a small mouth, and hair which is turned
"I suppose there are many women in Buffalo
to-day attending the Encampment, who saw aa
much of army life a3 many of the veteran sol
diers," said the reporter.
"Oh, yes. There are quite a number, espe
cially those who went as nurse3 or who accom
panied their husbands," was the reply.
''Your own recollections of those days must
ho interesting," said the reporter, whereupon,
after alluding to tho causes for her going, Mra.
"The first few yeara had little experience of
interest to others. My husband was in the
Government service. In the latter part of the
war he was sent to Fort Smith, Kan., to do
duty in the Indian Department under Maj.
Fuller and Indian-Agent McDonald. I wa3 in
Washington and wished to join him, but in
order to do so had to procure a nurse's pas3,
which I did. The journey to Fort Smith was
full of incidents, dangers, and hardships, as we
passed through rebel States then under Fed
eral rule. The ladies of onr party were in
sulted often, and redres3 was impossible. At
one time we had to lie down in the car while
rebel bullots flew through tho windows. Fi
nally I reached my husband.
"Wo had not been together long before Mr.
Dennison had to go to Washington with vouch
ers and agency papers. He made arrangements
for me to follow, but it waa three weeks after
ward before we left. There were six of us
women who had to go in wagons of the "refugee
train," which left tho fort fearing an attack by
rebels, which had been threatened. A part of
the train was on the opposite side of tho Ar
kansas Eiver, where the whole train was to be
made up when we arrived. It was evening,
but there was no time to lose. There were no
boats, the river was high, and there was no
way of crossing, except by swimming. In tho
dead of night a Government detective took ua
women over on horseback, one by one, the
horses swimming, with the water over the sad
dles. After we were all across, tho traia,of 10S
wagons started, under command of Cofnamp
belL We were preceded hy the ISth. Iowa,
while the 2d Colorado followed a3 rear-guard.
"We had reached a place called Cow-Skin
Prairie,' in Kansas, and feared an attack hy
rebels. Thero wero many little ravines on tho
edge of the jirairie, and our scouts advised tho
Colonel to move carefully. Ho gavo orders not
to fire a gun, under any circumstances, but it
wa3 not long before a wild prairie hog rushed
past the train. Of course every man fired at
the animal. As luck would havo it, Maj. Purcy,
of Gen. Dinwoodie'a rebel regiment, and a
company of bushwhackers were camped in a
ravine a few miles away. They came down
upon us, some dressed like Indiana. After
they had fired upon ua, every man of our train
fled aa fast as hia horse would carry him. Tho
rebels rifled the train, took everything valuahle,
especially wearing apparel, took my baggage,
made ua prisoners, but afterward paroled, us.
Maj. Dobbins was sick in tho ambulance wagon,
and his wife was with him. Ono of the bush
whackers rode up, put a pistol to the Major's
mouth and fired. Ho lived a few hours, and
we buried him on tho prairie. It was not .long
before the men who had left us reached Fort
Scott, thon under command of Gen. Curtis and
Gen. Lane. Thoy sent hack an ambulance
wagon and provisions, aa it was reported that I
was wounded. The rebels set the prairie on
fire, but fortunately the wind shifted and we
escaped. But a private named Brown, who
was with us, waa caught in tho fire and burned
"There had. been an engagement of Gen.
Curtis's troops before we arrived at Fort Scott,
and Magrudor, tho rebel General, had been
captured. I was sufibring from a severe bruise
where a mule had kicked me, and had. to bo
carried all one day of tho journey to Fort Scott.
But when wo reached there, Gen. Curtis said
he had a job for me. And what do you sup
pose it was? Can't guess? Well, I mended
Gen. Magrudcr's pantaloons. He had on the
uniform of a Federal officer when captured,
and in the skirmish they were torn in several
places. I got a pass from Fort Scott to Fort
Leavenworth, rode there on horseback a fivo
days' journey and lived there until mv hus
band came for mo from Washington, in 1864."

From the Boston Journal.
In one of tho theaters the other evening a
young man and woman, both well dressed and
evidently of good social position, came in
together and took seats in tho canter of the
orchestra. After the first act tho young man
oxcused himself and wontout, displacing, as he
did so, all the pcoulo who had seats between
him and tho aisle, and as the curtain went up
he returned, his neighbors again rising, and
becoming conscious, as ho passed them, of an
agreeable flavor of cloves and tho copper-distilled
nectar o Kentucky.
At tho end of tho socond act tho operation
wero repeated, and tho mixture of spicy and
alcoholic odors was augmented, and again at
the end of tho third, at which time tho young
man was observed to be somewhat unsteady on
his pins Aa the enrtain dropped on the fourth
act ho again went out, hut this timo waa fol
lowed by his companion, although ho himself
did not notice tho fact. When ho camo back
and sat down he observed her absence, and
after looking vaguely about and comparing hia
check with his scat number, ho got upon his feet
and went out to find her.
After a long hunt in lobhy and dressing
room, ho evidently came to the conclusion that
sho had left him in tho lurch and gone home,
whereupon ho also departed. And those who
saw tho affair would havo given a dollar and a
half apiscc to hear what aho said to him the'
next time thoy mot.
TLe loyal Woman Qncstlon.
The following pertinent Temarks in regard
to tho admission of all loyal women into Boliaf
Corps were made by J. Harrison Mills, P. C. of
Farragut Po3t, of Denver, at a recent meeting
of tho Corps auxiliary to that Post:
When we, your aona, husband and fathers, took
up anus to defend and preserve this Union, it waa
not tho assertion of individual or class sentiment.
All tho loyal men did not go to the front. Wc

eager and exultant in the freeman's right to bear
arms in defense of freedom, other thousands praved
hourly for ua, while they toiled for the support of n.
loyal army, and sympathized to the full with our
trials and successes. If we bad been for ono mo
ment left- without that support material and
moral could we havo kept on? 2CoI It was the
loyalty of the land that we expressed. It was for
all East, West, North and South that wo fought,
even for tho greater good of tho very men who
stood against us, and to save them and their chil

Again, remember that the wives and daughters
of the boldiers arc limited in numbers ; all are not
able to give their help. In a few years the widows
and fatherless will call for your care after the hus
bands and fathers have gone. From your own
number tho burden of your labors will receive con
etnnt augmentation. "Why deny now the assistance
you will then be glad to receive, which in tho
nature of things you cannot refuse. There aro
thousands of good and true and loyal women who
will be glad to join yoa in this work who are not
akin to the Grand Army, although some of them
did soldierly duty themselves, and saved many
times the lives of many of the very men who now

From the Zeirtston (Me.) Journal, June ZL
General Logan has created, a very favorable
impression during his visit to Maine this week.
He is, in the first place, a better looking man
than hia picture makes him. In deportment
he is a perfect gentleman, and, while suffi
ciently dignified and reserved, gives a man
that cordial greeting and warm grasp of the
hand thatprove he has good blood in his veins.
His public utterances have been marked by a
deliberation and prudenco which his opponents
would have one believe ho lacks, but which he
combined in a happy degree with the fire of
his Western eloquence, in his speeches at Au
gusta, Ellsworth and Bangor- General Logan
ia not so felicitous at repartee nor so charming
in conversation as is Mr. Blaine, hut it would
ba hard to find an orator gifted with more
eloquent or persuasive speech than the " Gal
lant hero of Hlinois."
