He was out gunning that afternoon and
on returning to camp he found the nsw

hammer, it slipped, discharging tho
gun, and the entire load entering the
right side of young Moore, who was
sitting in front of the tent, from ths
streets of which he died in something
over an hour.

indar date of Jul* 10, ty hie fe the*
Well, I guess you hare heard the
lews of our great fight oa the third of
Ny. Talk about a little hell, we had
t that day. It is a day that will never
ade from my memory, We were just
laving morning quarters when the
ookout reported smoke in the harbor,
md a few minutes later we could see
he Spanish ships coming out. They
03k us by surprise, but we were re_Rly
or them. The Brooklyn and the Ore
;on were the nearest to them and they
the Spanish) all ^entered their lire on
s. It is a wonder that any of us are
lire to tell the tale. As it was, we had
nly one man killed and one wounded*
Wary one of our guns wsa going for
ll they were worth and nearly erery
bot told. The moak of the Spanish
re was loo high, although we were
truck a number of times, I think ab?ut
>rty times. The"*- Spanish had six
oats while we had only two. We
>oa had one of their boats on fire and
ceding for the beach. The last one
I coE__-e out got the atari on us aod
?e had to chase her about forty miles
sfors ws caught har.
It waa a great day for the nary and
se we may well be proud of. The
nly fighting done on our side vas by
ie Brooklyn and Oregon, and tbe
rookiyn had the biggest share of it. I
.n't know how many we killed, but
hat we didn't kill wa Matured.
Well, so much for the fight You
iked me about the grub We hare
enty but lt ia all of one kind, no
iriety. For ins_ence,ons day we hare
ians for breakfsst, soup for dinner
id soup for supper; the next day we
ire soup for breakfsst and beans for

For some re >son, as y. t unknown to
us, not acopr of The Gaiittb re.cbed
this office last week. If the fault lies
with those who hsndle the mails it is a
thing to bs looked int1.
For two weeks psst tbe weather hen
be. n such as to put* ti a severe test the
patience of those who hare be n trying
to make bay. During tbat time there
hi been but one day without rain, otten
but light local showers, but enough to
stop hay-making. But slow progress
made in the way of threshing, from the
same cause. By the way, it is we'l to
call attention to the fact that most of
those who have charge of traction en?
gines, now so numerous, running to
and fro on our public toads, sre paying
no attention to the law that requires of
them, when miring, to keep a hand in
advance to wantha tiaveler of their
approach. The consequence is, that
onjmany of our narrow roads with sborl
turje, aad horses given to fright, we
are subject lo great danger. I don't
know exactly whose duty it in, but
tomebcdy ought to sse thst such a
lifeguard should not go unheeded.
Possibly each violation is a case for the
Ber. Mr. Miller, of Kentucky, is now
_ n a visit here and will preach in Be?
thesda church on next Sabbath.
Miss Margaret Laekey, of Buena
iftsta, who has been for several weeks
past on a visit at her ancle's, Mr. A. M.
tndsrson, will lear * soon for her horns.
We will miss ber bright face and wish
'or her early coming again.
Mr. James Woods, who met with ths
nisfortune of baring his leg broken ten
lays sgo, is doing well, with a good
.bowing for getting out again as soon
is is usual in such ossej. _
Tbe attendance at Wilson's it- unus
lally smsll st this time, but a week later
nay suffice to give them a crowd. The
'ever scare of lest year may keep some
iway, but with proper police regula
ions, which will, no doubt, be strictly
ibssrved, there is certainly no ground
'or ssrious apprehension in that partic
liar. There is quite a good company
it the Baths and still they come.
Heartfelt sympathy for our friends,
Henri. Johnson and Moore and their
smilies, in this, their time of sore dis
ress, is finirertal amongst us. May
hey be able to lean with confidence
ipon Him who alone caa sustain in
