THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1885.-TWELVE PAGES.
HELL GATE BLOWN UP
Flood Roclr Destroyed by 140 Tons of
On Saturday, at 14 minutes past 11 o'clock,
occurred in Now York harbor the greatest ex
plosion the world has ever seen. The destruc
tion of Flood Kock was made complete by the
explosion of the mines with which it had been
honeycombed within the past nine years,
under the direction of Gen. John Newton and
the officers of tho United States Engineer
Corps. The explosion was HFcctcd through the
agency of SSO.000 pounds of ' rackarock." a
new and powerful explosive, and dynamite.
The object of these operations was the removal
of the immense reefs and masses of rock that
have been so serious an obstruction to the
passage of vessels in and out of New York
harbor. -At the point known as "Hell-Gate,"
the navigable channel was very narrow, a
mere trough, rendered doubly dangerous by
the swift currents and eddies formed around and
among the rocks by the ebb and flow of the tide.
The work is regarded as being thoroughly suc
cessful. The explosion was witnessed by many
thousands of people, who crowded the East
River shore on both sides and filled numerous
excursion steamers. No mishap of any conse
quence resulted, which fact was a great relief
to the people of New York, many of whom
feared serious disaster to life and property.
While whistles were blowing and a hundred
thousand people crowding tho shores of two
cities, a little girl of 11 years, with shining
brown hair and soft eyes, stepped from tho
steam yacht Runaway to the landing place at
Astoria and walked to a little house that stands
on the wharf. Gen. Newton's officers saluted
her. She was the General's daughter, Mary.
Gen. Abbott, commander of the troops at Wil
let's Point, held in his hand a little instrument,
from which two copper wires ran out along the
turf to the water. There they disappeared in
the whirlpools that washed the base of the
formidable Flood Rock. Standing about tho
little girl were several laaics.agroupoi unueu
States otlicers and a few private citizens.
At last the boats around the reef complete
their work. Signals arc exchanged, whistles
shriek, cheers rise from the multitudes, and in
10 miuutes all tho boats have sailed away ex
cept the one which will carry away the work
men last to leave the reef.
Another signal is given, and this boat also
blows her hoarse whistle and steams swiftly
from the rock. It is now 12 minutes past
11 o'clock. The party in the little house
Btands in breathless expectation. Gen. Abbott,
in charge of the electric key, takes it in his
hand to see for tho last time that it is in work
ins order. He glances at the great rock which
still breaks into a thousand eddies the waters
of Hell Gate. , .
Little Mary Newton, with her flowing hair,
stands beside Gen. Abbott, and she, too, looks
at the great reef. Then she lifts her fair, white
hand and places her dainty finger on the key.
There is a moment's pause.
" Now," savs Gen. Abbott, quietly.
The child's white finger presses the key, tho
earth trembles and a lofty dome of milk white
spray leaps iuto space. Ten thousand shouts
fill the air from the crowds up and down tho
river; steamboats shriek and the flags salute
the event. The Niagara of water melts away
and Flood Rock, with its terrors, has disap
peared. "That is what I call science," exclaims a
large man in citizens' clothing. "I worked
with Gen, Newton years ago and I knew he
would make no mistake."
The nearest large buildings to the scene of
the explosion were the institutions on Ward's
Island, which are used by the Emigration Board
and by the Charity Commissioners. The Emi
grant Insane Asylum and Refuge is only seven
citv blocks away, considerably less than half a
mile. Tho residence of Chief Engineer Mc
Allister adjoins tho asylum, and not far re
moved arc several small detached buildings,
such as hospital pavilions, belonging to the
Commissioners of Emigration. Next in order
of distance comes the large Yerplanck Hospital.
On the other side of the island and a trifle fur
ther removed, facing the shady lawns of beau
tiful Ravenswood, on the Long Island shore,
are the Homeopathic Hospital and Inebriate
Asylum, and the great New York City Insane
Asylum, with its army of patients under the
care of Dr. Macdonald. This asylum was about
the most distant of all the Ward's Island build
ings from Flood Rock.
The inmates of all these institutions, except
a few whose bodily or mental ailments were
such that they could not be removed, were
taken out of doors in good time before the ex
plosion. Every precaution that could be sug
gested was taken to prevent injury to persons
or buildings in case of some unforeseen accident.
The doors and windows of all the buildings
were left open, so that the shock would meet
with less resistance; heavy pictures and orna
ments in the rooms of the doctors and officials
were taken down ; crockery ware and fragile
things of that sort were arranged so that they
could not fall and break, and the globes were
removed from the gas jets and chandeliers. Al
though these precautious were taken, the re
sult fully justified the predictions of Gen. New
ton that neither the buildings nor their in
mates would be harmed.
Gen. Newton arrived at Astoria on the De
partment yacht Runaway at half-past nine. He
inspected "the laying of the wires, went up to
the lighthouse, then boarded the yacht again
and visited the rock. He was one of the last to
leave it. Lieut. Derby was the last person on it.
" It is a perfect success," said Gen. Newton
after the explosion, "so far as I can judge.
Dredging will be commenced immediately. The
loose rock will be thrown into deep water or
" Do you think the cartridges have all gone
"I think so from the nature of the explosion,
but we shan't know that definitely for three
years, or until all the debris is removed."
Gen. Abbott said that the officers at Willet's
Point would set to work immediately to figure
out the absolute results. So far as they could
yet determine the explosion was successful. It
would require some time to make the sound
ings and find what change had been made in
the channel. It was now in the hands of the
A Lighthouse Department boat set to work
to buoy out the channel immediately after the
explosion. As the engineers predicted, it was
found to be clear for a 26-foot sweep without
any dredging. The directions of the currents,
however, have been much modified.
Four instantaneous photographs of tho ex
plosion were taken by the engineer officers at
the firing point. The cameras were operated
by electricity. The same current that exploded
the mine operated the first camera, which gave
a picture of the rocks, just starting in the air,
something that no one saw, as it was too close
to the shock. The others follow at intervals of
10 seconds, showing the explosion in all its dif
The hundreds of people on the Brooklyn
Bridge neither saw nor felt the explosion. They
could hardly believe that it had occurred. A
Blight rumble was felt at Flushing. In East
New York the shock was distinctly felt. At
College Point and Ravenswood Point there was
a slight tremor. People in Brooklyn had taken
great precautions to prevent accident from the
explosion. 3Iany thought its eflects might bo
very far-reaching. The hour was anxiously
awaited for. When the shock came it sounded
like a thunder clap miles away and felt like a
faint earthquake shock. At Mount Vernon
and throughout Westchester County the report
was distinctly heard, but tho shock was not
noticed except by those watching for it. At
Morrisania there was a loud report like the ex
plosion of a cannon. At Tompkinsville, S. I.,
the blast was heard, but not felt. There was no
deflection of the compass. The shock was very
noticeable in the lower part of New York. The
City Hall trembled for the space of five sec
onds. In Astoria bottles were shaken from
shelves, articles were thrown from mantels, and
several buildings tottered as though about to
topple over. Considerable window glass was
broken and some chimneys were shaken down.
On the Hallct's Cove road, over a mile from
Flood Rock, horses were nearly thrown from
their feetaud thesea wall vibrated dangerously.
The shock was also distinctly felt as far as
Paterson, N. J., and oven at Princeton College
successful observations of the time and effect
of the shock were made.
Flood Rock had an area of nino acres, al
though only 250 square feet was above water.
A sea wall seven feet high was built around tho
Island. Two shafts were sunk one 57 and tho
other 40 feet deep. Tho main shaft was used
for removing tho excavated rock in blasting
out the headings. The smaller shaft was used
for the tubes conveying tho compressed air
which drove the drills. The first series of
headings branched out from tho maia shaft at
a depth of 40 feet, and from the bottom of the
shaft another series diverged, directly under
those above. The headiugs branched at right
angles every 20 feet, and were 00 in number in
each tier. The double system of headings was
employed to gain a sufficient depth after the
explosion without the necessity of dredging out
to the extent that was necessary at Hallett's
The total length of tunneling was about four
miles, consisting of 21 galleries runing north
and south, and 4G running east and west. Tho
longest of these was 1,200 feet in length, G feet
wide and 10 feet high. Thero was a thickness
of from 10 to 25 feet between the roof of the top
tier of galleries and the water. There were
407 pillars left to support tho roof. These were
15 feet square. The whole rock was honey
combed with tunnels, about S0,000 cubic feet of
rock having been removed.
There were drilled in tho pillars and roof
13,260 chambers for holding the cartridges,
each chamber three inches in diameter
and about nine feet deep. These chambers
were filled with rackarock cartridges, of which
there were about 47.000 used, cadi being two
and a half inches in diameter, two feet in
length and containing six pounds of explosives.
In addition to the rackarock cartridges, several
hundred ordinary dynamite cartridges were
used, to which tho wires connecting with the
detonating electric batteries were attached, tiie
simultaneous shock from these causing the
explosion of all the remaining cartridges. Over
235,000 pounds of explosives were used.
GEN. BELKNAP'S SPEECH
At the Ilennlon of the Crocker Brigade.
Following is the text of the eloquent speech
delivered by Gen. W. W. Belknap, at tho Ro
uniou of the Crocker Brigade, at Iowa City:
Gov. Kikkwood LAnins a-i Gkstixmen- of
Iowa Citv: Crocker's Iowa Brigade the 11th, 13lh,
nth ami lGth Iowa won bv your lrcncrons wel
come, is here to-night, where its survivors meet
and greet each other. Here, where the Legislators
of u young Slate formed the foundation on which
has grown almost an empire; here, near the classic
shades of the University irom whose walks so many
voting men go out into the world well armed for
the light of life; here, in the home of that, honored
Statesman who, beyonil any name which his great
services in public life may bring, has the grand title
nf Imm's War Governor : what place more fit
than this, mv comrades, for us to meet?
There have been times in life when somestrain of
music, whose air has not come to us foryears. bears
us at once far back tosaine attractive scene of other
days where the same air was hcuiri. The friends
who were with us then", and the wordsand the lan
guage, and the surroundings of a forgotten b Unow
recalled hour, in the dear, dHightlul pa-t, are with
us once again, revived by the nieiody of that music
whose in.ulc power brings the forms and familiar
faces of the loved of other days once more into our
Though the drums, sir, that beat to-nigntand the
buglestliat blow ring out their calls as clearly as
ever, their sounds do not summon my comrades
and myself to active work. Uut we are borne back
by them in memory to the day when the Hag was
tired upon and the whole land was aroused; when
the citizens of the State became the soldiers of the
Nation, and her youth became her men; back to
the white tents of pleasant camps; to morning
guard-mounting and the glitter of evening parade;
to the earnest labor of military duty; to the prompt
movement of the early start; to marches by day
and to the restful bivouac by night; to earthworks
magically made; to the skirmish-line far in the
front; to the sharp crack of the ride, which told
that the enemy was near; to lines of battle quickly
formed; to the sudden nttack; to the ready re
pulse; to the exciting advance; to the passionate
charge; the rolling niu-ketry; the bursting shell;
the cries of the wounded; the lusterless gaze of
the pallid dead; the lull in the firing; the renewed
attack; "the noise of the Captains and the shout
ing;" the waving regimental Hags, as the scattered
men rally around them ; the dust and the heat and
the smoke and tl . din and the sweat of battle;
and the gradual dying of the hours of tumult into
quiet, as the welcome end comes, and the lagging
sun of the heated day slowly, as if it loved to lin
ger on these fields of strife, goes down at last with
the air full of our loud cheers of victory.
In the midst of eventful scenes like these, the life
of Crocker's Iowa Brigade began. The men of its
four regiments had gathered at the recruiting drum
beat from all parts of the State.
When the names on their regimental muster-rolls
were called, only a County here and there was
missed. From Dubuque and Pottawattamie, from
Linn and Lee, from Wapello and Benton, from
Marion and Scott, from Muscatine aud Dcs Moines
and Polk, from Cedar and Van Buren, from High
Henry, Proud Mahaska and High Boone, and from
70' of the 9U Counties of Iowa came these men whom
you honor here to-night, who did their work so
And ordered to lead them was Crocker, the man
by whom they should be led. His ready force in
civil life made him a marked man; his determined
will gave to him the signal power to command men
nnd hold them by the inspiration of his presence;
liis high spirit in action stamped him as a daring
soldier. Upon the certain bravery of this brigade
lie leaned :is on asure support: and, knowing what
he was, they gave to him the honor of their truest
trust, and never faltered when the trial came. It
was not fate for him to die upon the field, but lie
had won the leaves of laurel which bind the hero's
brow, and as long as we, his comrades, live, whom
he so nobly led. there shall come from us for him
the words" which he deserved to do his memory
And now his commander and ours. Grant, the
first commander of the Ariuy of the Tennessee, has
gone. As the bugle blew taps at Itivcrside on
August 8. it was a fitting requiem for him as he
crossed the river and joined the celestial army
which waited for him on the other side. Guileless
in life and language, tender in his affections, loyal
to his country, dutiful to his God, immovable in
his friendships ns the everlasting hills, brave in
time of battle, heroic beyond example in the hour
of death. Best and truest and most faithful friend,
good night. "We shall not look upon his like
The deeds which the men of this brigade did aro
now in history. They would be called heroes in
any heroic age. Though not realized now, those
of their name and lineage who follow them will, in
the generations coming, cherish the record which
Forsaking the embraces of affection and the arms
of love, 24 years ago they left their homes under
flags whose stars were bright, and whose stripes
were deepest crimson. They bore like men the
changes of toil and prison and field and light.
They marched from the Mississippi to the sea; nnd
then these flags, soiled and shot and torn and tat
tered, but surrounded by the halo of the same old
glory, were furled in final triumph.
Dropping the button of rank and the badge of
blue, they became the Kepublic's citizens, and are
here now to meet old army comrades and to thank
you from their hearts for the pleasures of this hour.
But we are not all here; some from our land and
its distant borders and some from other lauds send
us a soldier's love, and some have heard the sol
dier's last tattoo.
We no more face the fearful fire at Shlloh; no
longer sec that charge at Corinth where the Union
batteries swept from life the flower of that army of
the South; no longer hear the thundering guns at
Vicksburg; no more go down into that " Valley of
the Shadow of Death," the picket-line at Kenesaw,
and no longer stand in the tornado of battle at At
lanta. These are past memories. We only hear
now your tender words of peaceful greeting, and
are blessed by the smiles of women, whose hands
wave to us to-night so sweet a welcome.
Mr. Mayor! Citizens of Iowa City I Old men and
matrons! Young men and maidens! By your lov
ing kindness you have tied yourselves, firmly,
fondly, and forever to the hearts of the men of
" Crocker's Iowa Brigade."
In the Da) s of the Draft.
To the Editou: In the days of tho draft
many jokes were perpetrated, which I think
would be interesting and amusing to many of
the old soldiers who read The National
Tbibune. If wo may believe tho following,
which appeared in tho Philadelphia Press in
18G5, there were some who fled to tho moun
tains to avoid the draft, even in Pennsylvania:
A wihl man has been discovered in a forest in
Clearfield County. He was covered all over with
cotton, like down, and when captured was able to
speak only one word "draft." He had forgotten
all the rest of the Kuglish language. This story
may be true, since large numbers of the residents
fled to the woods during the late draft. Many are
yet missing, so that more wild men may yet be
Many were tho misunderstandings relative
to the substitutes who, for a consideration, took
the place of those who were drafted and were
willing and able to pay a man to fight for them:
A man who was drafted, and his wif, sorely
distressed at tho idea of parting, were vainly
endeavoring to invent some excuse for getting
him exempted, when a knock was heard at tho
door. On opcuing it she found a rough look
ing chap, who accosted her thus:
"Madam, I hear your husband has been
"Yes, sir," bIig replied, "he has; but good
ness knows how I am to spare him."
" Well, ma'am, I've come to offer my services
as a substituto for him."
"A what?" asks tho now excited lady.
"I wish to take his place," answered tho
" You you take the place of my husband,
you vagabond ! I'll teach you to insult a poor,
lone woman in distress, you mean, dirty
wretch?" cried tho prospective widow, accom
panying her remarks with a discharge of dirty
water at tho head of tho astonished substitute,
who fled hastily down tho stairs just in timo
to escape tho pail which followed tho water.

To the Editor: Two years ago I visited the
battlefield of Gettysburg in company with tho
Massachusetts delegates. One evening while

A Baggage Check Which .Saved A Soldier's Life.
Lieut. II. M. Parker, of Blissfield, Mich., late
of the 11th 111., has in 'his possession a brass
baggago check whidh saved his life on tho bat
tlefield. It is check Np. 75, from the Cairo &
Fulton Railroad, and was placed on Comrado
Parker in sport by sonic lricnds, who said they
wanted to check him through all right, at Bird's
Point, in Missouri, opposite Cairo, a long dis
tance from Fort Do'uelson, and three or four
months before tho battle occurred. During the
fight referred to he knew a bullet had stiuck
him, as ho felt tho jar, but he did not know how
near it came to making a hole through his body
until he looked himself over afterward. Tho
check was hanging by tho little leather strap
which is wi th it still, on the inside of his blouse
and under his overcoat, and it was through
these and a largo pockctbook that tho cold rebel
lead went; it struck tho check-on one side, bent
it nearly half double, and glanced outward
through the clothing again. It did not touch
the soldier's body, but left him unharmed. Ho
was vory much out of patienco, however, when
ho found it had cut his tobacco pouch to pieces,
and spoiled the smoko which he so wanted to
tako after tho battlo of cannou and musketry
Kate Homer Clayton Raymond W. Howe.
In reply to a recent communication in The
National Tuinuxi: from John M. Shoemaker
in regard, to the lady whoso name heads this
article, tho Porcupine, of Los Angeles, Cal.,
publishes the following :
We had our experience here with the distin
guished forager, and it was humiliating and expen
sive. In addition to all our inquiring comrade
says, the enterprising Kate while bore claimed to
be'an honorary comrade of the G.A.It., nnd such nn
infernal bore did she become to the Posts of this
Department as to elicit a CJeneral Order from tho
Department Commander. Kate is not a grand
daughlcrof Gen. Winlicld Scott; not an honorary
comrade of the G.A.K.; was not a drummer in
Hooker's Corps as Tom Smith or nny other Tom
or Smith. ICato never did or will get up enter
tainments for the benefit of the G.A.K. Post, Wo
man's Kclief Corpy. or any other bodies or individ
uals other than for Kate's necessitous self. Kate is
not licensed to preach by liishop Haven or any
other bishop living or dead. Kate was not wounded
at Lookout .Mountain as Tom Smith or ony other
Tom or any other Smith, or as a drummer, soldier
However, our Green Hay comrades will, probably,
before this reaches them have escaped tho infliction
of the would-be drummer by her having vamosed
the ranch, as the tactics of Kate is ever forward and
never backward, and as she always seeks pastures
new under a new name they will never be likely
to see her more, and this Honest information will
have reached them too late, and they will have lost
the benefit of one of Kate's G.A.K. entertainments.
The Green Hay bovs, like the California boys,
will have been unfortunate if they fail to sit down
on Kate promptly.
An Incident or tho War or 1312.
To the Editou: I read in your paper an ac
count of a Zouave rcghnont that fought so des
perately at Gaines's Mill, Juno 27, 1SG2. It was
stated that they were given whisky and gun
powder. That brought to my mind an incident
of the war of 1S12 that I have heard my mother
tell. It was that battle on Lake Champlain,
fought between the English and the Ameri
cans, under Commodore McDcnotigh. On tho
morning of the battle Commodore- McDotiough
called his men all together and held prayers.
As he aroso from his knees, after ho had com
mitted them to Gbd, a cook at tho cabin door
exclaimed, "Commodore, tho victory is ours!
Tho English Commodore, treated his men to
whisky and gunpowder.' Our Commodore had
two colored servants, a' man and his wifo,
named Peters. Hisydutywas to pass powder to
the guns. Ho was soon wounded, and was car
ried down to tho cubing His wifo stepped up
and took his place. Sliowas dressed in whito
from head to foot, rfsi'd kVi'pt her placo until tho
battle was over. Tho next morning a son was
born to that bravo uouplo, and they named him
Commodoro McDonough General George Wash
ington Peters. Ho was quito a hero in that
villago of Whito Hall, where my mother lived
many years. r '
My husband wag in tho last war four years
and my eldest son two years. Wo did what wo
could to save our coimtfy. I enjoy your paper
very much, and call myself a veteran's wife.

ARMY OF THE TENNESSEE.
Tlaln Words from
Criticising Its Ex-
To the Editor: The exclusivo and selfish
character of tho "Society of the Army of the
Tennessee " has long been a matter of surpriso
aud profound regret to tho rank and file of
that splendid army. The history of the late
war is rcsplcndeut with the achievements and
glory of the Army of the Tennessee. It is a
grand history of a grand army, in which the
rank and file have a common interest with its
ollicers; a history which would never have
been made but for the rank and file the men
who have been so ungraciously snubbed by a
denial of membership in tho society bearing
What was the purpose of that organization ?
If it was intended by its originators as a sort of
"mutual admiration society" especially for
tho ollicers of tho Army of the Tennessee, and
to maintain and perpetuate the official aris
tocracy of which we saw so much in the ser
vice, I do not think there is an enlisted man
of that splendid army who would desire or ac
cept membership in the society upon any con
dition. If, upon the other hand, the purpose
of tho organization is to commemorate tho
brilliant achievements of that army from Fort
Donclson to the sea, and to strengthen tho
bonds of fraternity that unite or should unito
us, then tho rank and file not only desire but
think they are in justice cutitlcd to member
ship in it. However, the officers who organ
ized the society have placed this ban upon us,
and we have nothing to do,but submit.
I think this is the only organization of the
kind in the country-certainly the only ono
within my knowledge in which the enlisted
man is not welcome. We meet the ollicers
of the Army of the Tennessee in the Post
rooms and in tho Department and Na
tional councils of tho Grand Army of the Re
public on tho broad platform of equality, bo
cause "Fraternity, without regard to former
rank, is the broad foundation stono upon
which our Order rests." But when wc approach
the portals of the " Society of the Army of the
Tennessee," we aro commanded to stand aside
that rank is tho only passport there. I do
not believe, however, that all of its members
approve its oxclusivencss. In tho judgment of
Charity I am convinced that there aro many
members of that society who deeply regret this
injustico to their comrades of the rank and
file of our gallant army. No doubt there arc
many others who think the arrangement emi
nently right and proper; that the distinction
between ollicers and men should bo forever
maintained; they believe, and will take their
sacrament on it, that those who wore tho in
signia of rank represented all the culture aud
brains, while tho rank aud filo mado up tho
brawn and mtisclo of tho army. There are
such souls, for I have met them.
These self-sufficient gentlemen forget, if they
ever knew, that there wero hundreds of men iu
the ranks carrying muskets and knapsacks, who
were as capable, by natural endowment and by
education, to command regiments, brigadesand
divisions as any of their superiors who did
command. All that thoy lacked wero the com
missions and the opportunities. Many enlisted
as common soldiers from choice.who would have
graced high positions. Others entered thoranks
iu tender youth, too young to dream of ambi
tion. They all entered tho service to do battle
for their country, actuated solely and purely by
patriotic motives, and not to get otlice and ob
tain the pay aud allowance incident thereto.
And for this they are met at the threshold of
tho "Society of tho Army of the Tennessee,"
and told that they cannot cuter; the portals aro
closed in their faces.
If this society had called itself "Society of
tho 0iccrs of tho Army of tho Tennessee," tho
enlisted men would have no causo or disposi
tion to complain. But when they christeu it
" Tho Society of tho Army of tho Tennessee,"
and then debar from it a great majority of the
men who composed that army, their grievance
Comrades of tho Army of tho Tennessee,
what say you to tho organization of a society
of the rank aud file of tho Army of the Tennes
see? For years I have thought that this should
bo done, but have not, until now, taken occa
sion to give public expression to that opinion.
It occurs to me that a convention for the pur
pose of organization might be called at Cleve
land, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Chicago, or somo
other accessible city in tho West, at somo dato
in tho near future. I should be pleased to cor
respond with any of my comrades of the Army
of tho Tennessee upon this subject. Let us not
only agitate, but act. Johx W. Fry, Co. H,
42d Ohio, Ashland, O.
To the Editor : I was glad to see- The Na
tional Tribune's pertinent referenco to tho
so-called " Society of the Army of tho Tennes
see." Tho Chicago Times' criticism is also to
tho point. A new organization should bo
formed, broad enough to take in every man
who served in tho gallant old organization. A
good time and place to do this would bo next
year at San Francisco. There promises to bo a
great gathering of Grand Army men there to
attend the Reunion, and tho Army of the Ten
nessee will undoubtedly be well represented.
Tho writer was an officer in the Army of
the Tennessee, sharing its fortunes from Padu
cah to the Gulf, and is therefore eligible to
membership in the above-mentioned close cor
poration ; but the thing has always appeared
so narrow, unjust and absurd that ho has kept
out of it. Comrades of the Army of tho Ten
nessee, let us organize! Old Thirteenth

A Piece of Itnmrod In a Veteran's Eye 21 Years.
Georgo W. Lovejoy, of Bridgeport, Conn., a
veteran of the late war, has been blind in his
right eye for 21 years. While firing a saluto
recently a prematuro discharge of the cannon
shattered his right arm and injured tho eye.
Soon after the accident Dr. Wilson, an occulist
of Bridgeport, performed a most skillful opera
tion on Lovejoy's eye. He removed from tho
ball a piece of hickory ramrod which was blown
into the oyo 21 years ago. Tho piece U almost
an inch in length and over an eighth of an
inch in diameter. Mr. Lovejoy is in conse
quence relieved from pain which ho has suf
fered almost constantly since thoaccidont. Ho
was not aware of the existence of tho splinter
until it was removed.
