THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, DECEMBER 29, 188T.
pc uiag buck, I had studied as far as possi
b.a iHl tihe maps that I could get access to,
and learned pretty well the exact topography
of tlie James River country. My Maryland
ixiend3 -who had come over had fully ex
plained their trips across the Potomac, and
I learned that it was only the favored few
who were in the service of the Confederate
Government that were permitted to travel
hack. I knew Tery well that I could offer
no satisfactory reasons for going North, and
that the attempt to do so would probably
lead to my arrest, or at least put me under
gome scrutiny that could not help hut work
disastrously to me.
I was conveniently sick for a day or two
while I was studiously perfecting my plans,
for the sight of the Railroad Superintendent
had thoroughly scared me.
It was not oxactly safe either for mo to be
Tunning about the streets of Richmond while
Bach dangerous animals as those Manassas fel
lows were at large (
One evening, shortly after Ellrton and the
Colouol had been telling mc of -thoir success in
GETTING THETB BEFUGEE 6QUAD
into a battery, when the Colouol and I were
alone, ho told mo in the greatest confidence
tbatElktoa. who had been almost a daily visitor
at the War Office looking after his commission,
had loanied on direct authority that "the
army under Johnston and Beauregard will
vary soon advance, and we mast get in atonce;
because," he added in great glee and with
significant emphasis, as ho tapped me familiarly
on the shoulder as he uttered each word, " the
plan is to march into Maryland and capture
Washington and relieve Baltimore'
This was the most interesting bit of news
that I had heard for some weeks, and it set my
nerves up to a high tension. Eager to loarn
mere, I questioned the voluble and confiding
Colonel, who was eager enough to talk.
"Oh, I know it's true, my boy. I tell you
truly- tbat before very long we will march
right into that portion of Maryland from which
I"was further encouraged to go right in now.
The Colonel said:
" Why, my dear boy, we will all Boon march
hrae t ' Maryland, my Maryland,' and be re
ceived by oar friends in our gray uniforms."
I con f oss this last part of the program rather
stumped me. I was not particularly desirous
that; any of ray friends should receive me in
the gray uniform. I-shared his enthusiasm in
one respect, which was that it would be glori
ous to be doing something once more, and I
even hoped they would move into Maryland,
as that would servo to stir up McClellau and
the 2sTorth. I saw in this proposed advance
into Maryland a good chance to again safely go
through Beauregard's army, which I was vill
JngtoVisk in this shape if by so doing I could
learn of any proposed movement of the rebels
on to Washington, knowing very well that once
up that country iu a rebel uniform, I could
s-fely advsuiee into Maryland some hours and
pa-haps days before the rebel army, so that our
friends could be prepared to suitably receive
their distinguished military visitors audentcr
taia thorn in the proper form when they should
The Colonel wont out to the bar to take a
drink. I sat down and wrote another cipher
letter, iu the same key that I had used in the
iermtfr. The information which it conveyed
to my Northern correspondent was to this
effect, as each fifth word read :
PBOPOSB AJJVAKCB KOHTH VIA. POTOMAC."
This was short and to the point, because I
iad not time to "cipher out" a long dispatch,
as I wanted to get this through quickly. With
this fa my hand I joined the Colonel down
stairs, and together we walked again to Col. J.
3. Jones's office.
In venturing ont I was careful to ascertain
by a cautious inspection of the groups always
loafing .about the hotel that my Superintendent
from Manassas was not among them.
Being assured of this each time, I cantiously
inspected the register, and at a favorable op
portunity remarked to the gentlemanly clerk,
as if I were surprised and delighted at the
Why, is Mr. Superintendent here ! "
The Richmond hotel clerks arc like all their
c'ass, and when I attracted his attention he
turned to a colored boy and said :
u Show tui gentleman up to 02."
"Oh, no, never mind; I'll not disturb him
to-night: J'i see him again."
I dldir t ask aayfarther questions.
Theuaxt morning I was greatly relieved to
learaVrmna prier thattbeSaperintendent'had
"genTBfTott de early cabs, sah."
It was late in the evening when the Colonel
and I called on Col. Jones with xaj letter. I
remember this from the fact that the genial
Colonel was preparing to close his office for the
night, hut be kindly took charge of my open
letter, ad without a word of question placed
it in a pigeon-hole, in which were quite a num
ber of other sealed letters.
I aked, with an assumed expression of deep
inur-t and anxiety in my manner, if the
CoiO-i fead any letters for me.
" Xutfctap at all undelivered," he said, as he
puUiy expressed his regret at having- to dis
a.pomt me. I felt so sorry, too, and with a
b j of regret and a hope for better luck next
time, bgfiethe Colonel good night.
This information of the threatened invasion
of Maryland and the csptnre of Washington
and Baltimore, had apparently put new and
fresh Mood into my veins. I felt that I must
nd oat all about it, because I was in Rich
mond for that purpose, and if I failed qt per
mitted so important au event to be planed and
put in operation right under my owii-cyes, it
would prove pretty conclusively that as a spy or
scout 1 was not reliable, and 1 could not afford
to fail 5 this important matter.
Sol laid the Colouol that I was most anxious
to go with him and Elkton to Maryland as a
While they were arranging the details with
the "War Omce and some of the other Maryland
refugeosavith whom we were to be consolidated,
2 put in My state scouring every avenue of in
formation that I could think of for confirmation
of the reported plan to advance. I was more
deeply foierested in this than I can explain,
becMi-i, as will be remembered, I had already
advis d our Government that an advance was
impossible on account of so much sickness and
geuer&l lusty of discipline.
It was now sheet the 1st of October, and dar
ing tne time that had elapsed the condition of 1
aflat it at iUiiHasas bad changed very much of
court. Tuc rebel army had been sck, bet had
sow suSkiently recovered, and was iu good
shape for an offensive movement.

the office early in the day, becjoaa paper was
already becoming scares ut Icebeidom, and a
daily paper was te expensive a luxury for
every ea to enjoy, especially in my circum
Etaucea. 1 found, too, while standing about in
Hie crowds, that I could overhear a great deal
of oemHteotou the news that was more satis
factory tome, as a spy, then the news that
the pa$r contained.
The Stehmond press regularly quoted the
nrinoinal Kew York Winers of onl v a dav or so
SrfaceeiHg. and especially all of the unfiivora- j
le critfeferos of Union military officers, aud
particularly the opposition to the administra
tion of Lincoln on tho part of Northern Copper

people of the more intelligent data, in response
to the exhibition of Copperhead sympathy, was

On Main street nearly opposite the news
paper office was the general telegraph office. I
called frequently at this office for a message
which I pretended to be expecting.
It never came. But I was not discouraged,
and kept up the visits until the delivery clerk
got to know me so well that he would answer
my question before I put it I thought it
would be well enough to try to loarn some

There was scarcely a day passed that I did
not continue my walks down Main street to
the Libby prisons; indeed, I bocamequite well
acquainted with a couple of tho guards about
there, and my visits were ostensibly made to
them, while I really went to see tho Union sol
diers imprisoned there. It was through my
newly-formed friendship with tho guards at
Tjibbv that I mado also tho acauaintance
of somo people on the hill Shockoe Hill, I
think thoy call it. In this family, or rather in
the neighborhood in winch the guard lived,
wore some very handsome ladies, who had
mado themselves agreeable to our rebel friends,
tho guards. Of course tho ladies were enthu
siastic admirers of the gray uniforms worn by
the boys, and were especially attracted by tho
cut of tho clothes worn by the officers.
As I did not have a uniform, I presume I was
notatHrsfc as much in favor with those ladies
as were my friends of tho rebel guard. As this
acquaintance came so nearly exposing my wholo
campaign. I will mention it briflyhcre, as its
results will be seen furtherou in this narrative.
In Eichmond in 1861 all the stores seemed to
be doing a good business, and in a general way
everything went along in an ordinary way.
About the hotels there were unusual crowds of
people for Eichmond, and but few wore tho

The big men of the Confederacy at that time
were Beauregard and Joe Johnston, aud it was
a serious question, which was constantly being
discussed by the friends of both, which of these
two was tho " better mare." With Confeder
ates from the extreme South Beauregard was
the favorite, while with tho "Virginia Yan
kees " (as the extreme Southern people termed
tbe Virginians, because they demanded pay for
gotfds sold to the army) Joe Johnston was the
Some day a secret history of the inside work
ings of the Confederate Government will show
the world that on their side there was fully as
many bitter bickerings, jealousies aud intrigues
as existed at any time among the Generals of
the "long-suffering but noble and gallant
Army of the Potomac."
It was evident from tho increased activity
about the offices of the War Department that
something was up. Since I had heard of this
proposed advance I was giving tho Departments
considerable attention, and rarely missed an
opiiortunity to see, as far as I could from tho
outside, what was going, on inside.
From my bench under the trees in the park
I could sec that the office was being besieged
almo3t constantly by crowds of people, mostly
members of their Congress. Thoy went in
groups of two to four at a time. Sometimes a
Congressman would beaccompanied by an officer
in gray uniform. As they passed mo their
conversation seemed to be animated ; in short,
there was a general feeling with everybody
thafi'something important was pending.
I could not learn much at the telegraph
omce, and had about abandoned the attempt in
that direction, until I struck a plan that was a
little risky, but under the circumstances I felt
justifiable in undertaking almost anything.
Noticing a messenger leaving the War De
partment, I followed him at a respectful dis
tance. He went straight to tho telegraph office.
So did I. I entered the door jnsta moment
after he did, and was carelessly edging towards
the delivery clerk to put my stereotyped inter
rogation to him, when ho said to tho mes
" Shall we send the dispatches from the Pres
ident to Mrs. Davis to her house to-night? "
" There won't bo any; he is expected back
Jeff Davis was at Manassas, thcu. I felt
really as if I had been derelict in my duty in
thus permitting the President to go out of town
without my knowledge and consent.
But he was coming back that was comfort
ing to me. I felt sure now that tho rumors of
an advance had been confirmed. I knew
something was in contemplation, and I could
not leave Eichmond at that time, certainly not
until I had ascertained what it was that thoy
proposed doing, aud when it was to be done.
I went straight to my room, wrote n short
dispatch a rather crude one tho translation
of which was that " Jeff Davis had been to
Manassas, and something was up," and before
I slept it was in Col. J. B. Jones's postoffice.
While I felt that my " dispatch " would ulti
mately go through to Washington all right, I
was yet quite uneasy about this talked-of ad
vance of the rebels iu to Maryland; fearful that
it might take place at once, or before my infor
mation could reach tho North. This fear kept
me awake long after I had gotten into bed,
brooding over the dangers of a rebel invasion
into Maryland and the humiliation that would
attach to tho capture or flight of President
Lincoln and his officers from Washington, and
again resolved to myself that 1 would " stand
by Jeff Davis," and that, for one, he should not
go to Washington.
It did not occur to my mind at that time
that McClellau had organized a large army
in front of Washington, which wa3 fully ablo
to defend the Capital against any force the
rebels could bring against it." It must bo re
membered that I had heen away from home
now since July, during which time I had heard
only of the Union army through rebel sources,
and of course everything favorable had been
suppressed, while all the weakness of our force3
had been greatly exaggerated.
I had heard so much of this sort of talk dur
ing those three months that I had perhaps come
to believe in a great deal of it.
Every recruit has suffered from tho "chin"
of old veterans about a campfire, who always
knew more of the proposed movements of tho
Generals than they did themselves. So it was
that I was compelled to listen to the wild talk
of the onthusiastic refugees, the Colonel and
Elkton, after they came into tho room that
night. It was late; they had been having
some fun, aud were feeling great!' exhilarated
over the street rumors of tho proposed invasion
of Maryland. I do not mean to insinuate that
they were tipsy, just because tho Colonel
GOT INTO BED WITHOUT TAKING HIS CLOTHES
for he was ablo to talk plainly and volubly
until he fell asleep from exhaustion.
The talk of those two fellows that night
about the dreadful things that were going to
happen soon had about set mo wild, and I felt
as if I ought to get out of bed and walk right
straight up to Washington before daylight and
tell "Uncle Abe" all about it. But I fell
asleep, and dreamed perhaps as wildlj-23 1 bad
There was one pjibt settled, and that was
that it wasjs tost plan to stay in Eichmond,
at isfat until something sure was discovered
about tho rebol plaus. Another was that if I kept
up my friendship with these two lively old
boys who were taking care of rao, I could more
easily gt fuller aud more satisfactory informa
tion; aud that if I was obliged, in order to pro
long my stay in Eichmond safely, I would go
with them into tho Maryland artillery, and
thus safely reach our array under cover of a
gray uniform, as it was understood that their
Mafylaud battery was to go to the front at
1 was willing to do anything that was neces
sary for the good of tho Government, but I
wanted very much to avoid, as long as was
possible, the seeming necessity for joining tho
rebel army as a means to further my ends and
My three months in Eichmond had been al
most fruitless, but I succeeded in opening and
keeping up connnunicatiou with our Govern
ment through the rebel channels.
I was on hand in their own territory and on
tho alert to discover aud report any informa
tion. I had discovered at last that something im
portant was pending, and I decided to stay and
see it out
The next morning I was out of bed early and
iu the park before my two comrades were out
of their beds they slept late, as they were so
tired after thoir night's hard work. I wanted
to see if Jeff Davis had returned to Eichmond,
and afier breakfast I took my accustomed seat,
from which I could obtain a view of his ouico
There were at all hours of tho day many peo
ple in the park. Thoy were of all kinds, from
tho provisional Congressman, Yirginia State
Assemblyman aud Confederate Government of
ficial down to the refugees, citizens, and sol
diers and spies. a.
I expect thero mAyy Union spies in
Richmond than uiysel You know it is ono of
the rules of war that a spy or scout shall work
independently of ovorybody but the general
officer in whoso service ho may be acting at the
time. If ho is discreet he will never talk of
his work to anybody except his own General.
There have boon men detailed from their com
panies and regiments for special duty at head
quarters, or perhaps sent off some place else, who
were accomplished and successful spies, and not
eveu their compauy or rogimeutal officors knew
of the fact that they were being so employed.
As I have said, there was always to bo scon
in that beautiful square any number of people,
and on this October morning it seemed as if
every person who wanted to go to any place in
tho city made it convenient to walk through
tho square to their destination.
Thero was eternally Confederate soldiers and
officors loafing about on the benches. I had
becomo so accustomed to tho boys in gray, in
the streets, that I had forgotten to be at all
afraid to meet with and to talk to them. This
morning in particular I was perhaps unduly
reckles3, because I was so eager to obtain some
further information about this advance.
Seeing a group of
THBEE NICE-LOOKING SOLDIEES
talking together a little distance from where I
was, I determined to join them. A group of
three soldiers on a lark was not exactly tho
source that I would have applied to for infor
mation of an army's proposed movement six
months later, but, as I have said, I was young
then and fresh.
I approached and addressed the boys by a
mild aud meek inquiry as to how to enlist in
"our" army. This was a question that inter
ested them all, and every fellow was at once
eager to give me the desired information, which
was to the effect that each had the very best
Captain in tho army.
They belonged to Louisiana, they said, and
were all from New Orleans, and woro on thsir
way then to join the army at Manassas,
having arrived in Richmond tho day previous,
and were lying over until the officer in charge
secured necessary transportation. I was urged
to go with them. Thoy declared there was to
be some great fun soon, and that their officors
knew all about it, and had told them of the
plans for tho campaign. The story tbey had
did not differ materially from that I had heard
from our own boys, but I judged that as thoy
were just from New Orleans they could not
know much more about the army at Manassas
thau I did. While wo talked together during
these few moments we stood in a close group
on one of tho broad walks; the conversation
was carried on with such a degree of earnest- "
ness on their part that we scarcely noticed
the persons who were constantly passing us,
until one of the Virginia police soldiers came
up to us and politely ordered tho crowd not to
block up the way.
Tho polico soldier walked off a little piece,
and then taking a position whero two paths
joined, he stood like one of tho statues for a
moment ; then, as if suddenly imbued with life,
his arms flew about as he brought his gun to a
"present." Passing him were two gentlemen
one quite portly and red-faced; the other, a
slender, thin-faced gentleman, iu a dark suit of
steel gray. As they came closer we all watched
to see who they might he, as the guar! had sa
luted. Tho big-faced gentleman was doing all
the talking; the thin-faced one wasclose to me
beforo I recognized him. Ho was so intent on
hearing tho old man's talk that he did not look
toward ns at all, and after they had passed I
said to tho soldiers :
"That's President Davis."
They were, of course, all anxious to get an
other glimpse of their great man, aud one of
them hastily followed a'fter, while one of tho
others said in his slow, deliberate way:
"I thought so, because he looked just like a
Confederate postage stamp."
At that time Mr. Davis's picture was on the
stamps recently issued.
I took this opportunity to get away from
them by saying that I must join ono of our own
Maryland regiments, and started off as if I
must find one right away.
To be continued.

Five Years In OJilcc.
Editor National Tribune: The question
of retaining in office good and efficient com
rades in the various Grand Array Posts may bo
overbalanced at times by the necessary change,
in order that "all may have a chance." In
local assemblies this is perhaps as it should bo,
but too much cannot be said concerning the
ruinous consequences of annual changes iu the
position of Assistant Adjutant-General in De
partment Headquarter, It is impossible for
any one man to becomo familiar with-thc ardu
ous duties of that office insido of six months
after appointment; and it is,a question if tho
entiro time bo not occupied in getting right
down to business.
In our Stato we have, in round numbers, 630
Posts. These are, of course, separate organiza
tions, meeting regularly and transacting tho
routine busine&s of the circle. Any good, moral
man, with ordinary ability, may command a
Post. Posts are like the brilliants iu tho fir
mament, revolving around one grand orb,
which itself moves to tho great center of
attraction. That "orb" is tho Department
Commander, and that " center of attraction "
the National one. Hundreds of applications, in
quiries, useless and idiotic demands, are mado
through the Department Headquarters, all of
which must necessarily fall into tho hands of
tho Department "Man Friday." I must be par
doned for saying that all organizations are in
fested, moro or les3, with trickey cusses, and
ours is not entirely devoid of tho article. Cer
tain demands are made upon Department Com
manders, particularly after an early election,
and whoso important au aid to him, under
the circumstances, as an experienced Assistant
Adjutant-General. I havo before agitated the
question of retaining in office for, say, five
years tho Assistant Adjutant-General. Ho be
comes well acquainted with his duties; he is
familiar with evry Post, with every old de
serving soldier so to speak and in ono week
from the day of a Department change of Com
mander, tho tide of Grand Army affairs may
be in the smoothest running order. It now,
usually, requires six montns to learn the du
ties of the office, and tho other sin: months are
required to correct tho blunders of learning it.
A word in favor of the Assistant Adjutant
General of Ohio, Col. James E. Stewart. It is
conceded that a better and more reliable officer
never filled the position in this or any other
State of the Union. Ho is attentive, agreeable,
highly educated, and is worthy the highest
pobition, not only in tho Department, but in
the National Headquarters. Ho ha3, by his
immense Grand Army experience, greatly as
sisted Col. Putnam, the Department Com
mander. It would be a mistake. bGvond re

however deserving, and I claim upon the broad

mander is a mere figurehead, and tho position

tho duty of that position, which only becomes

About Bccent Demonstrations In Dixie.
Editor National Tribune: Your edito
rials on tho recent demonstrations in the South
ern States ore cortainly timely, aud it seems
strango that every journal in tho Nation that
claims a particle of loyalty is not warning
the people of this Eopublic of tho gravo dan
gers in permitting such to be.
Let us review tho ficts. In 18G0, certain
States, claiming that this Government of ours
was but a copartnership of many Govern
ments, which could ho dissolved at will by any
ono of those Governments, undertook to divide
tho Government. Thoy called it "seceding."
The citizons of the other States claimed that it
was a Stato among the State3 of the world,
aud could not be dissolved oxcept by tho ovor
noweriug force of arms, aud thoso citizens called
I the act " rebellion," aud those who attempted
" rebels." War was waged for four years, and
tho seceding States were forced to rccognizo
the supremacy of tho General Government.
Contrary to tho custom of Nations, tho rebels
were all spared thoir lives, and wore givon
tlieir freedom and the right to hold the property
which had been theirs. Those rebels, as a rule,
asserted that from honceforth thoy would bo in
favor of one Government, and asserted that their
"cause" was "lost." Their chief, however, as soon
as he was sot at liberty, and over since, claimed
that the "cause" was not lost; that it was
just and legal, and would yet prevail. Nothing
being douo by those who had sustained tho
Union to prevent such utterances, the senti
ment came to be taught by others. Becoming
more hold, tho ox-rebels began to raiso monu
ments, in tho form of names of hotels, places
of business, etc, in honor of thoso who had
been prominent as Ieadors in tho rebellion.
This being permitted, thoy noxt raised monu
ments of stone to those "heroes." No ono
objecting, except feebly, occasionally, they
began to demand that those who fought to pro
servo tho Nation must not do anything or say
anything that could remind tho rebels that thoy
had been defeated, lest it hurt their tender
feelings. If a Union public speaker dared
allude to any act of an ex-rebel, tho cry of
"bloody shirt" was at once raised. Union
people must remain silent, but ex-rebels could
extol to tho skies tho great deeds of their
noble Generals and statesmen, and could raise
monuments of stouo and bronze in every city
and town in tho " Southland." They next
held thoir Confederate "Eeuuions," at which
the old rebol yoll could be heard as loudly as
when they still had hopes of success iu arm3.
Eebel flags were marched under and hoisted
with great applause and yelling. In Southern
schools the children had been taught that the
South was right, the North wrong, and at their
firesides and in their nurseries their children
are so instructed, that they cannot avoid hating
all Union people and tho northern section of
the Nation iu general.
These are facts, and the Eichmond and Ma
con doings wore but a step ahead of former pro
ceedings, and such as might have been expected
to some day transpire when they wore fir3t per
mitted to say or do anything that mado a lie
of their assertions that they were, from the day
of Appomattox, true Union-loving people. Tho
rebel Gen. Jackson in his Macon speech but
voiced the sentiment of his hearers when ho
stated that iu tho final day Davis aud not Lin
coln would bo asserted tho true President. It
is true that few openly use such language; but
tho rebellion is reviving, and rapidly too, and
the old principles of secession is fast growing
in tho minds of tho rising generation. Tho
writer has traveled in Kentucky, Tennessee,
Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louis
iana, Texas and Arkansas, and in his travels
he has studied the people, associated freely with,
all classes aud visited in their homes, whero ho
has found the walls invariably covered with
pictures of Confederate Geuorals and victories
and cemetery scenes, each, calculated to instil
into the minds of children a haired of tho
North, and of tho people who conquered them.
Ono searches iu vain for anything that shows
tho faintest respect or token of honor for any
officer of tho Union, or anything pertaining to
Now, are wo to havo a long-lived Nation? Is
the Confederacy dead? Or must we prepare
for another Jratricidal war? If this Nation is
to ho permanent, treason must be made odious!
Traitors must not be permitted to live in tho
United States. As soon as ono does or says any
thing against the Union, he should bo expelled
from the Nation. Evdiy .monument, sign or
tokon raised, printed or "'painted in honor of
treason and rebellion, or of any traitor, must
bo utterly destroyed, or we cannot feel safe or
secure. Was rebellion right? Shall others ho
permitted to rebel at will, and if unsuccessful
be put in possession of tho Government, and
have monuments erected to those who failed
in battle ? If not, then wo must undo what
has been done. As the writer has repeatedly
said to them in tho South, thoy aro doing that
which they may themselves deoply regret, if
thoy arc sincere in thoir assertions that thoy
will hereafter favor tho Union of tho whole.
Tho next rebellion may be in the East, tho
West, or North center, and tho South may bo
the States that will have to fight to save tho
Union. With tho precedent thoy have estab
lished they can look at the picture that they
must behold in caso they should sustain tho
Union. It is insisted by the North that tho
rebellion was wrong. Then what a picture wo
are compelled to look upon all over the South
wrong presented to tho world as something to
bo worshiped !
Old veterans of tho South, you fought well,
aud surrendered as brave men. You now claim
fealty to the JJiiion ; thou let yours be the hands
to gently removo thoso monuments and hido
them whero mortal eyes will never see them
again. There is no necessity for you to grovel
in the dust and say you were wrong when you
were fighting to destroy the Nation no neces
sity for you to condomn your leaders no rea
son why you should not continue to havo Eo
unions ; but, if you really care for the perpetua
tion of this Eepublic, destroy as early as possi
ble every trace of anything that in tho faiutest
degree is iu honor of rebellion. For your own
sakes and that of your descendants do nothing
that will tempt any other portion of this Ee
public to ever attempt to secede or rebel. Let us
join hands and work for a common countrya
Nation that shall bo as near perpetual as a Na
tion can bo. Teach your children that all peo
ples look to this country as the haven of tho
oppressed ot all Nations, and as it is so good in
the eyes of others, teach them to mako it a3
much hotter as possible and to love it for its
good u ess.
We who fought for and against tho Nation
aro tho ones to make tho Union porfect. You
who woro tho gray, do your duty as citizens of
this Eepublic; destroy the idols raised in tho
honor of rebellion or disunion, aud join hands
with ns in tho purification aud perpetuation of
our homo tho United States of America.
And think of this suggestion: United States
means a Union; at the samo time it conveys
tho idea that once there were separate states or
Nationalities. So long as that can bo felt, so
long will there bo found people to claim iliiit
those State3 can dissolve that Union at will.
Then, to forever settle tho matter; lot us exort
ourselves to induce allour people to change the
name, acft eallTt somehingj;hat will show that
this is a Nation one and inseparable and a Ee
public, too! If wo can, give it no better narao,
let it be called tho ' Columbian Eepublic of
America." ? i
But first let us haje a solid, fixed Nation,
with not a trace of a monument or olsewhat in
honor of division, that we may feel safe during
tho few short years that it is possible for ua to
remain hero, and as we are mustered into tho
Army of Eternity, lotishao reason to boliovo
thnt nnr children ean'bo secure. Thus united.
no Nation or combinafjon of Nations will over
be daring enough to m'ake war upon us.
Voteran3 of tho Gray, you claim loyalty to
tho Union. How willyou -prove it? "With

Congressional Injustice to tho ApprOTod Claims of
Editor National Tribune: Comparatively
fow porsons boyond thoso directly nffected com
prehend tho injustico inflicted upon a class of
veterans by - failure of Congress at its last
session to pass tho measure known as tho Gen
oral Deficiency Bill.
This measuro, affecting many public interests
as well as nersons. involved tho trood faith of I
tho Government and ombraced tho adjusted
claims of poor men and women in all sections.
To all such tho delay of payment was as need
less as it was cruel, unjust and unpatriotic A
siuglo featuro will illustrate tho hardship in
flicted upon all included in tho bill.
I lofor to tho claimants to whom tho Treas
ury Department acknowledged tho indebted
ness of tho Govcrnmont for bounties, of which
thoy had boon denied over sinco tho war by
orronoous decisions on tho law relating to cases
whero soldiors who, having enlisted prior to
Jnly 22, 18G1, wero discharged to accept com
missions beforo two years of service in the
ranks had oxpired ; tho righteous interpreta
tion of tho law by tho Second Comptroller, Mc
Mahon, having established tho right of this
class to tho bounty of $100.
These and liko claims were included in the
list duly submitted by tho Treasury Depart
ment to Congress, aud tho number of poor men
denied tho pittance allowed by tho law may bo
roughly guessed by stating that the individual
claims raroly exceeded in atnoHnt $100, while
their aggregato amounted to less than $1,000,000.
It is needless to suggest that had these claims,
instead of being sustained by law, justice and
tho sympathy of the people, as thoy assuredly
wore, come beforo Congre33, backed by somo
urgent politicial necessity or advantage, the
bill would have been passed long beforo ad
journment. Mauy of these soldiers have since passed bo
yond the reach of Congressional injustice and
human aid, aud tho little sums for which thoy
.aUdJn-vain will now go to swell that now
towering National nightmare, tho Treasury sur
plus; while the surviving claimants will wait;
alas, with slender hope3 for auy dmeront treat
ment during tho present session.

IIow Ancient Greece b'aed Crndo Oil.
Tho great use mado of Greek firo in the Mid
dlo Ages, so graphically described by Gibhon,
shows an intimate knowledge of one of the ob
jects to which crude petroleum could be applied,
says a writer in Murray's Magazine. These com
pounds enabled tho Greeks of tho Eastern Em
pire to hold their own against tho Saracens for
somo hnndreds of years, and during two sieges
of Constantinople gavo tho victory to tho
Christians over their Moslem enemios.
Tho terror and devastation caused by the
Greek fire seems to havo been almost aa great
as that caused by artillery. It wa3 blown
through long copper tubes, which wore fixed in
tho foro part of tho imperial galleys or on tho
walls of the Greek towns. Sometimes at tho
moment of the attack on a besieged place great
cauldrons containing the seething mixture were
lifted on the walls and the contents poured
upon tne assailants witn ternoie euecc. xc
could be projected through a considerable space,
and has been described as rushing through tho
air like a winged dragon, with the report of
thunder and tho velocity of lightning. It was
lanched also in red-hot halls of iron, which fell
with disastrous effect within tho walls of a be
It can ho understood what an alarm such a
combustiblo would cause, especially when
thrown upon and among ignorant and half
naked opponents, on whom the noiso and flamo
would have a terrifying effect. Even in mod
ern battles the results obtained by artillery
fire, especially the fire of shells, are out of all
proportion to tho nnmber of men killed. Later,
when tho secret of the Greek firo had become
known to tho Saracens and it had been adopted
by them, its effects were equally dreaded by
tho Crusadora. The fact that it could not bo
extinguished by water added to the terror
caused by the noise, smoke and flamo. The
secret of its composition was carefully guarded
by tho Greeks and retained for their exclusive
use for about 300 yeara. Fables wore invented
to hide from other nations' so valuable an ad
junct to tho art of war, and the barbarians
were informed that it had been revealed by an
angel to Constantino the Great, and that to
communicate tho secret of its composition
would provoke tho vengeance of the God of the
Christians: After the invention of gunpowder
it was no longer of much value. I havo a
formula for making Greek fire, and iu it petro
leum is ono of the chief ingredients.
Kin? of the Beggars.
A rare old volume to be found in a few Eng
lish libraries contains the history of the once
famous Bampfyldo Moore Carew, known in Eng
land, during tho reign of George I, as tho King
of the Beggars.
Carew belonged to one of tho oldest and most
honorable families in England. His father was
a clergyman and hi3 grandfather was an earl.
He passed through Eton with distinction, and
In his 20th year, ho left collego and joined a
gang of gypsies, with whom he remained until
his death,40 years later. Tho entreaties of hia
family and tho ridicule of his friends had no
effect upon him. At his father's death he in
herited a largo estate, which ho refused to claim,
continuing to live in tonts, wandering through
Europe, often in dire want and squalor.
Ho supported himself by beggary, in which
profession he showed such remarkable ability,
as to be everywhere known as King of the
Mendicants. His disguises and imitations of
suffering wero eudless.
Carew, it is said, was a man of great ability
and of winning mannera; hence, when ho cam o
in contact with men of his own class, they
acknowledged him as still thoir equal. His
cousin, Lord Soton, once laid a wager with him
that he could not deceive him as a beggar.
Carew approached him au hour later as a de
crepit old soldier, and received a pound ; and
the uext day, as a widow with a babe in her
arms, induced him to give him three guineas.
He undertook a voyago to this country " to
sco what could he mado out of tho Quakers,"
and made a begging tour among tho Puritans of
Now England, the Dutch in Now York and tho
Cavaliers in Virginia.
