WKDNKSDAY, MARCH 17, 1830.
An olllcer wlio was wltli Ilanock
nt Gettysburg thus describes the
General's heroism in the Held : ' On
the second day of the lighting 1' un
cock was at Cemetery Heights dur
ing the frightful cannonade witcn
the rebels coucentratcd the lire of
1iO nuns on our lines. The air was
full of missiles; streams of shot,
and shell screamed and hissed every
where ; it seemed as though iibthing
could live under Unit terrible lire
men and horses were torn limb from
limb; caissons exploded one after
another in rapid succession, blowing
the gunners to pieces. The infantry
hugged the ground closely and
sought every slight shelter that the
light earthworks afforded. It was
literally a storm of shot and shell
like the fait of rain-drops or the
beat of hailstones. Those who had
taken part in every battle of the
war never had seen anything like
that cannonade, and the oldest sol
diers began to be uneasy for the re
sult. Hundreds and thousands were
stricken down ; the shrieks of ani
mals and screams of wounded men
were appalling; still the awful
rushing sound of Hying missiles
went on and apparently1 never would
cease. It was then, when the firmest
hearts had Iiclmiii to quail, the army
witnessed one of the grandest sights
ever beheld by any army on earth.
Suddenly a band began to play
'The Star Spangled Manner,' and
Gen. Hancock, with his staff Jlaj.
Mitchell, Capt. IJingham, Capt.
Tarker and Capt. Rronson, with
corps Hags Hying in the hands of
Private Wells appeared on the
right of this lino uncovered, and
rode down the front of his men to
the left. The soldiers held their
breath, expecting every moment to
see him fall from his horse pierced
by a dozen bullets, but still he rode
on, while the shot roared and
crashed around him, every moment
tearing great gaps in the ranks by
bis side. Kvcry soldier felt his
heart thrill as he witnessed the mag
nificent courage of his General, and
lie resolved to do something that
day which would equal him in daring.
Just as Hancock reached the left of
his line the rebel batteries ceased to
play, and their infantry, 18,000
strong, was seen emerging
woods and advancing up the lull.
Hancock knew the artillery fire had
been intended to demoralize his
men and cover the advance of their
infantry which was to make the real
attack. Turning his horse he rode
slowly up his line from left to right,
holding his hat in his hand, bowing
and smiling to the troops as they
lay flat on the ground. Hardly had
ho reached the right of the line
when the men, who, inspired by tho
courage of their General, could now
hardly restrain themselves, received
orders to attack the advancing
rebels. Kiglity guns which Hancock
had concentrated opened their bra
zen mouths and streams of blue
bullets flew from the muzzles of our
rifles to the breasts of the Confeder
ates. It was an awful day, and
Longstrect's 'Old Guard of the
South' melted away like wax under
that terrible fire. Of the 18,000
who came to the attack, 5,000 fell
or were captured on the hillside.
Thirty stands of colors and an 'im
mense number of small arms were
taken. Hancock was everywhere,
riding the storm of battle as if lie
bore a charmed life. At last, just
in the moment of victory, he was
seen to reel in his saddle, and would
have fallen to the ground hud lie
not been helped from his horse. A
ball hud pierced his thigh, and for
a time it was thought his wound was
" 'Tell General Meade,' said
Iluncock, addressing his aid, Major
Mitchell, 'that the troops under my
command have repulsed the enemy
and gained a great victory. The
enemy arc now Hying in all directions
in my front.'
""When the aid delivered this
message to General Meade and
added his General was dangerously
' wounded, Meade said : 'Say to Gen.
Hancock that 1 am sorry lie is
wounded, and that I thank him for
myself and for the country for the
services lie has rendered to-day.' "

When Dick Thompson of Indiana
was made Secretary of tho Navy
some one called upon Mrs. Thomp
son to congratulate her upon her
husband's elevation to the head of
the Navy Department. She could
hardly believe that the news wus
truo, and said to her visitor: "Why,
Richard isn't fit to be Secretary of
the Navy he can't even swim."
