Quite n ltirge number of Union prisonors wore

prisou yurd, which was surrounded by u. high
brick wall. At a point near tho gate during a
iri'-'ht dy in December, I observed a nunibor
of biu.wMt silling close to the wall, with a
much-woi'ii iHiok of cards, ongagod in n qiiiut
game of oticltra, wliilo tho robol guard paoud

They had dug a hole through tbo wall and

Editor National Tribune: Private Pat
Murphy was a roystoring, dare-devil soldior
that tho regiment took great iutorcst in. but
whether Gen. Uclkuap's 15th Iowa or Gen.
Sanders's 10th had his name on its roster, I will
eay nothing about. Sullieo is to say, Pat was
as well known to tho one as tho other, and
iiirmshud tho subject-matter for many a good
Btory. Whether truo or utt, most of tho good
jokes current in tho rogiioont wcro laid on
Murphy's broad shoulders.
On one nionioutous occasion, just before the
ushering in of what proved to be a pretty big
battle Pat skulkud through the pickot-lino
just boforo tattoo one night and joined bis
rcgimont, near headquarters. He had been out
rnivATE foraging expedition,
and bouoath his blouse reposed against his
manly breast two chickens. Pat had scarcely
unloaded and rccovored his breath when a Cor
poral and guard presontod themselves and de
manded "Private Murphy," and that gallant
soldier was rushed off to headquaiters so fast
that his trombling limbs could hardly carry
liitn. Put was a mighty good follow, aud wo
felt vory solemn to see him marched off to
what promised to bo condign punishment.
But as he had left the chickens behind, we
boro up with reasonable philosophy, aud tho
pot was soon boiling.
In half an hour the pickets wore firing; then
a crack of musketry, followed by big guns,
close by, and right out of thoir smoke emerged
Pat, yelling " Pall in," and grabbing his musket
ho was with us going to tho front. Finally,
we had a good breathing spoil, and sat down or
laid low to enjoy it. Pat, attcr taking a final shot
at a far-away moss-covorcd tree, pretending ho
thought it was a rob, wit down behind a big
log. "An' it's comfort this is," lie said.
" But, Pat," suggested ono of the boys, " how
in the devil did you get out of that chicken
scrape, and jiuo us agaiu?"
"Chicken scrape ho dom'd," replied Pat,
rising up with injured dignify, hut suddenly
dropping at tho Kip of several passing bullets.
" Can't a gintlcruin bo
ESCORTED TO HEADQUARTERS
to sco the Ginoral, but yo blackguards think
it's a chicken scrape, likes as it wur yourselves?
Now, I'll toll yo, b'ys, jist how it wus," aud
Pat lit his pipe, as the story goes, stuck his
hat up on a ramrod for the rebs to shoot at to
entertain 'era while he told the story, aud pro
ceeded : "Tho fact is, b'ys, divil take me if I
didn't think I was going to miss this scrimmngc
and catch the divil, an' all on account of but,
bliss my soul, b'ys, where's do chickens?"
"Bilin, two miles back, if the robs haven't
got 'cm," answered ono of Pat's mess.
Pat looked solemn for a moment, then bright
"Bcgorra, an' auld chickens they wur, any
how ouo of 'em wid spurs on him longer
than tho Kuruc'ls. Lot 'em bile. But as I
was saying, b'ys, the bloody guards halted
right aforo tho Giucral's tent, aud the Corporal
took me in, an' brot down his gun at order

' Private Murphy,' says he. A littlo man with
a big cigar in ills mouth was sittin at a table,
and a lot of oflicors stanin' round. 'Private
Murphy,' scr. the little mau, and he frowned at
mo terrible. ' Yoz, sur,' says I, yer honor, it
Iz.' 'You have been absent two hours from
camp,' sez ho. Yis, ycr honor,' 6cz I, and I
was jist going to blab out how tho dom'd

ecz he, 'Private Murphy,' an' ho frowned

and tho oflicors scattered liko wild geese,
bowiu' to mo as they passed, and before I
could take a drink with

big guns wore roaring, an' you saw me come

Just thon thorc was a rebel volley close on
our right flank, kind of enfilading our posi
tion as wo woro at rest, nnd Prlvntn MnmW

claiming: "B'ys, tho Ginoral waited for mo,
but, bcgorra, 1 won't wait for him. Let's re

Pat now lives in Kansas on a farm. Ho

drew as " arrears," and now onjoys his ponsion.
Ho really was badly wounded, but as ho once
confidentially remarked to au old comrado at

TROOPERS IN CHURCH.
Capt. Pnrnbwortu'fe Way of Dealing nltli a Dltlojal
Editor National Tribune: In January
and Fobruary, 1602, the 8th 111. Cav. was quar
tored in Alexandria, Va. Gen. Elon J. Funis
worth was at that time Captain of Co. K. One
Sabbath morning tho Captain, with a few of
his mon, attondud services at tho Epibcopal
Church. Everything passed off sorcuely until
the oJhciatiug clorgyman iu his prayer omitted
to ask a blessing upon tho President, according
to thoir ritual. This was too much for tho
Captain,and ho called "Haiti" Iiisiug in his
seat ho domauded that the prayor be repeated
then und thoro, and a blessing be remembered
for tbo Prosidont of tbo United Slates. Over
the prayor again wont the divine, and again ho
left the President out. Auothor halt, and
turning to Sorg't John Kiuley, tho Captain
taid: "Sorgcant, dotail two meu and arrest
that num." Tho order was obeyed. Ho was
taken before Gon. Montgomery, then Military
Governor, whoro the Captain, after preferring
charges against him, was relieved, and soon
afterward the priboucr was discharged by Mont
gomery. The noxt day we provided ourselves with a
goodly array of flags and started out to decorate
that church, but found that Gen. Montgomery
had stationed a company of the 88th Pa. there,
with orders to lot no ouo inside. Wo were on
good tonus with that regiment. If anyone
from cither regiment was out of our usual time,
night or day, tho countersign was always
"Three SV' meaning 65th and 6th, and wo
were safe. After talking a while Scrg't Kiuley
got inside, wont quiotly aud quickly up tho
Bteoplc and placed a small flagon the church and
onine down. Not until wo wcro about to leave
had anyone discovered it. That night or tho
noxt wo woro ordered out of the city by Gen.
Montgomery. Reporting to tho headquarters
of Gen. Sumner wo were, immediately ordered
t return. Gon. Montgomery was relieved of
his command and went to Baltimore. Wo
never heard of him aftor that. D. L. Dean,

loaded with ammunition, which had been capt
ured by Lougstroot from Pope near Centor
ville, aud was being rapidly moved into Vir

vonturo. Tho official roport of the loss at
Harper's Forry from Sept. 12 to 15 was as fol

There was always some mystery as to tho
wounding of Gen. Miles. The rebels kept on
shulliug us for half au hour after tho white
flags wore flung to the breeze, aud it was gen
erally understood that one of these missiles
struck Gen. Miles, carrying away his leg and
causing his death.
Tho 115th N. Y. saved its colors by a bit of
strategy. Tho colors were stripped from tho
Etaff and a piece of tent substituted and cover
ed with the oilcloth pocket. This was passed
over to the enemy without being noticed. Tho
colors wcro rootorcd to the regiment a few days
later by tho gallant Sergeant, to the joy aud

The SnlUbatclilc Fight.
Editoe National Teibune: I note a com-
mnuication from V. F. James, Sergeant, Co. E,
Gtfd Ohio, Valley Center. Colo., with a criticism
of a comrade's account of tho fight of Salka
hatchie. Ho says that tho G3d Ohio was re
lieved by tho 25lh Wis. in tho swamp. Now,
there wns no 25th Wis. in the Seventeenth
I was detailed that morning with 19 other
comrades from the 32d Wis. as sharpshooters to
take position each Eidc of tho road over which
Col. Swayno attempted to lead his regiment
(tho 43d Ohio) as near as practicable to tho faco
of tho fort, aud to keep silent, if possible, tho
gun which commanded that road; and we suc
ceeded, except for tho ono shot which wounded
Col. Swayno and 13 of his men. After we had
been in position about half au hour wo wcro
surprised to see Col. Swayno at the head of his
men on foot marching as coolly up the road as
if going on dress-parade. Some of tho boys
called to thom to got out of the road, and just
as the head or tho column was up with the line
of sharpshooters tho cannon was fired. Tho
shell exploded almost at the head of the com
pany, and for a moment I thought all had gone
down before it. Tho men instantly rallied,
picked up the Colonel, and got out of that.
Col. Swayno, at the timo of receiving his
wound, was across all the bridges and between
them and tho fort.
Auothor mistako the comrade 6ecms to havo
made is that lie places the C3d Ohio as making
tho advance, whereas he states in the com
mencement that it was the 43d Ohio. Another
thing is the galling fire of musketry and artil
lery they faced. There was only this ono shot
from artillery, and six muskets would havo
covered all the firing of that kind, as it would
not havo been vory healthy for many heads to
havo shown up at a time over tho breastworks,
owing to our close position in front. Tho as
sault was not made from tho front of tho fort,
nor at tho time described by the comrade. Tho
32d Wis. worked around in rear of tho fort,
and being a thin line, the rebels broke through
about sundown and left. M. B. Bull, Co. A,

Tho Killing of Stonewall Jackson.
Editoe National Tribune: I noticed an
article headed "Wounding of Stonewall Jack
son." It puts mo in mind of tho part that I
played in that historical event I would not
relate it except to prove that tho distinguished
Confederate General, Stonewall Jackson, cither
got lost in the woods orsupposcd that ourarmy
had retreated, and ho with his Etaff officers
woro trying to find us. Ho succeeded in get
ting between our outposts and our line of bat
tle. Tho 72d N. Y Excelsior Brigade, Second
Division, Third Corps, was on tho extreme
right of that line. Co. D was tho extremo
right of the regiment. There were no troops
joining our right. I was in the front rank, the
last man at the foot of the company. I saw
five or six men on horseback approaching from
the right front about 20 paces away. I dis
covered that they wore gray clothes, and I
turned around to ono of our boys I think it
was John Bourne, now ticket agent for tho N.
Y., L. E & W. B. K. at Dunkirk, N. Y. and
asked him if those fellows weren't rebols. Ho
said no, that they were our scouts. They asked
what regiment that was, and I told them 72d
N. Y. They did not stop, but moved along
carelessly down our lines as if they were at
home. No doubt when they got down whero
there were intelligent soldiers they got halted,
but to tell the truth I had seen so many strag
gling men that afternoon I did not know tho
difference between tho rebels and our own
When I heard the next day that Stonewall
Jackson was shot that, night it flashed through
my brain that I had a very narrow escape from
being captured by Stonewall Jackson, for I
ccrtaiuly don't think that it was expected that
a private soldier Ehould capture Stonewall
Jackson and his staff, oven if ho was within
It has always been my opinion that had he
Bucceoded in returning through our lines he
would havo ordered a charge that night and
captured the Union army. But of course the
opinion of a soldier who didn't know tho dif
ference between a rebel and a Union soldier won't
go very far. Kalph P. Howe, Co. D, 72d N.

Editoe National Tribune: Lieut.-Col.
Scroggs, of tho 111th Colored, states that Col.
Lathrop had eight companies of tho 111th U. S.
C.T. at Sulphur Branch, Ala., Sept. 25, 1801.
where Gon. Forrest, with 12,000 troops, defeated
about 500 United States troops after a contobt
of five hours. Col. Lathrop was killed about 9
a. m. Then tho Lieutenant-Colonel of tho 3d
Tenn. Cav. took command, and was 6oon wound
ed by a bhe',1. Thon Eli Lilly,, tho Bcnior
Major of the 9th Ind. Cav., had command to tho
end. Tho troops engagod on our bide were 180
men of the 9th Ind. Cav., 300 of the 3d Tenn.
Cav., and 30 or 40 colored troops.
Col. Scroggs says Col. Lathrop had eight com
panies of colored troops there. I was on that
ground about 20 hours, and 1 ara certain I saw
no such command. If they wcro there, whero
were they ? If Col. Wallaco Campbell had held
Athens, as wo believed he was ablo to do, our
roinforceinont8 would havo had timo to como
up, and both places might havo been saved and
1,600 men been kept from prisou. I havo al
ways thought that Col. Campbell, with about
1,300 men woll fortified, plenty of ammunition
und whisky, should havo held Athens, Ala. J.

A MIX OF "TAYLORS."
Comrade Xcnlin Tries to Identify the Prisoner
Heretofore Referred to.
Editor National Tribune: I havo con
cluded that I must havo been mistaken as to
the given namo.of tho Comrado Taylor who
was with us one week on our flight from prison
iu the oarly part of the year 1SU1. 1 may havo
been mistaken also as to the company ho be
longed to, but surely I am correct S3 to tho
regiment, viz, 2d Mass. Cav. I am informed
by a letter recently received from Charles O.
Welch, Salem, Mass., n member of tho 2d Mas.?.
Cav., that thero woro seven Taylors iu that
From tho rather strange and peculiar cir
cumstances surrounding this case, tho actions
aud sayings of tho Taylor whom wo left behind
tho night of Feb. 2d, ISC I, I am constrained to
believe that ho was either Archibald Taylor or
George Taylor, both of whom enlisted March
19, 3feC3, attho ages of 23 and 23 years respect
ively, in Co. M, 2d Mass. Giv. Archie enlisted
at Dutch Flat, Cab, and George at San Fran
cisco, samo State. Archie, it seems, is accounted
for as having died in Savannah, G.i., in Septem
ber, ISO J, and George is accounted for as having
deserted May 30, 18G3.
Tlirco of tho other fivo Taylors enlisted in
tho 2d Mass. Cav. at dates subsequent to our
leaving our comrade, viz., Juno 10, April 22
and Nov. 29, 15(M, respectively; so it could not
havo been cither of theso throo that wo left.
The given names of theso three were Thomas,
Thomas J. and Samuel, respectively. Tho ro
maiuing two of tho boven Taylors wcro Alex.
H. and John, aged 21 aud 29 years. Alex. 11.
enlisted at Boston April 9, 18G3, and was dis
charged April 14, 1SG5; cause, disability. John
enlisted in California March 7, 18G3, and was
dischargod July 20, 1SG5, by expiration of term
of scrviue. It is hardly probable that either of
theso two was tho ono we left.
It is quite possible, even probable, that tho
man wo left died at or near tho place whero wo
left him. If ho did die there, then it could not
havo been Archio. who is reported as having
died atSavaniiah, Ga., tbo following September.
T. H. Merry, of Huencmc, Ventura Co., Cal.,
a member of Co. L, 2d Mass. Cav., in a letter to
me under date of May 20, 1SS7, says: "In Co.
L we had n man, John Taylor. Ho is reported
missing. My recollection of him is that he was
captured souiewhero near Ashby's Gap, iu tho
BlucKidge, aud never heard of afterwards."
Now, Welch and Merry do not agrco iu re
spect to John Taylor. Welch 6ays ho was dis
charged July 20, 18G5, by reason of expiration
of terra, etc, and Merry accouuts for him as
above. If 3Ierry is correct, it might have been
John that wo left behind. If Ueorgo Taylor
deserted May 10, 1SG3, or was captured about
that time, he may havo been tho man wo left;
and if he deserted, that fact would furnish a
reason why ho persisted in being loft alone.
The man wo left said he was captured in July,
I8G3. From a good authority 1 quote: " 18C3,
July 32, Ashby Gap, Va., 2d Mass. Cav.; Union,
two killed, eight wounded." It docs not say
that any were captured, howover, as Merry
suggests. Any comrado who thinks he can
throw any light on this caso, please writo to
The National Tribune or to mo. W. H.

AT BRANDY STATION.
How Custer's Band "Whooped Up" Ttnkec Doodle
to the Boys.
Editor National Tribune: Allow mo to
correct a slight mistako mudo by Lieut. S. A.
Clark, Co. F. 1st Va. Cuv., in regard to tho
fight at Brandy Station, Oct. 11, 18G3, whero
he says Gen. Kilpatrick placed himself at ;ho
head of his division and ordered his head
quarters baud to play "Yankco Doodle" It
was Gen. Custor's baud, aud Gou. Custer order
ed tho music.
On Saturday, Oct 9, the enemy, with cav
valry, infantry and artillery, attacked Kilpat
rick's Division near James City, but wcro held
in check during tho day. On Sunday tho arnry
was in motion; Kilpatrick slowly retreating,
fighting right gallantly against superior num
bers, back through Culpepcr, toward the
Rappahannock, until ho reached tho vicinity
of Brandy Station. As tho head of Custer's
Brigade, then in advance, reached the high
ground beyond that place, ho found across the
wide plain, noted as tho scone of former severe
cavalry battles, a long lino of rebel cavalry
drawn up, under Fitzhugh Lee, ovidently de
termined to disputo his further progress, thoir
numbers warranting them in tho belief that
they would bo successful. Farther down to tho
right Buford was making a glorious fight, his
forco being toward the river.
Gen. Custor obtained of Gen. Plcasonton,
who had taken command, permission to attempt
to break tho well-formed lincsof the enemy by
a charge. Buford was fighting tho right, while
a long column of rebel cavalry was coming up
from tho left. Forming his brigado in two
columns, led respectively by tho 1st and 5th
Mich., Gen. Custer ordered his band to tho
front, and placing them between tho heads of
the columns, directed them to play " Yankco
Doodle." It did with a will, and as tho strains
of that National air broko upon tho ears of
the men of that bravo brigade, their oabers
with ono accord seemed to leap from their
scabbards as thoy oagerly waited for tho order
Placing himself at tho head, Custer gave the
word, and with loud chcors thoy dashed for
ward with irresistible speed. In tho meantime
tho enemy in tho rear being temporarily
checked, the other portion of tho division was
formed in two columns, ono led by Gen. Plcas
onton, tho other by Gen. Kilpatrick, tho throo
columns advancing together. It was a grand
Eight the columns led by those thrco gallant
men, whosenamesarc now as "familiar as house

Editor National Tribune: In yourpapor
of Oct. G an ex-Confederate speaks his mind in
regard to tho kind of war history published in
The National Tribune, aud vory kindly
sends a clipping that tells how a " tall, raw
boned Johnny gunner," with a gun-swab, held
six Yankees at bay until a bayonet was run
through his body; then, with his entrails
hanging out, " grabbed a pistol " aud shot an
other boy in blue. All this, according to tho
clipping, occurred on Mission Ridge, and as
wur history, pure and simple, it seems to suit
our ex-Confedorato friend, who urges The Na
tional Tribune to avoid being "so much one
sided, and kill out tho impression that tho
North did all tho flghtiug."
Comrade Editor, 1 havo no desire to open a
discussion about tho bravery shown by either
bide in that btrugglo. But 1 will say tho clip
ping is so much t'other sided that it sounds
rather fishy to a Yank who saw the rebels re
treating from the crest of Mission Ridge. Tho
Confederates usually fought well, and wo re
spect them for thoir bravery. Both armies
fought as only Americans can fight, and I think
it is high timo that our misguided Southern
friends should abandon their old idea of South
ern prowess, namely, that ono Southerner could
whip fivo Yankees. Mill Springs, Fort Donel
son and other engagements early in tho war
proved tho raw Northern volunteer to bo a
match for his Southern foo, who fought at home
on liis own soil.
If The National Tribune was published
solely for tho purposo of lauding and magnify
ing tbo bravery of tho men who tried to de
stroy tho Government, then tho request for
"something deccut for us ex-rebels to. read"
would bo in order, but this demand, mado upon
a paper that is first and foremost in advocating
justico to tho Union soldier, and tho cause for
which ho fought, Bhows that Mr. Harris's
" cheek" is in au excellent Btato of repair.
Almost every survivor of tho Union army is
in possession of something which constantly
reminds him that tho North did not "do all
the fighting" or runuing. Finally, "With
malice toward none aud charity for all," wo
shall iusist that treason was whipped and not
" overwhelmed," as some like to put it S. A.
