*'flie Sweetest Word.
" I think tho sweetest word is Hour,"
Said little Annie Price, ?
" Because it always makes me thick
Of things se good and nico.
I never feel so happy ?c
-As when dear father comes : ?
A nd'ma and Willie are so kind, .
-So the sweetest.word is Home."
"The sweetest word, I think, is MOTHET
Said littlo Jennie Lowe,
" Though I hardly can remember mice,
v Sbc died so long pgo?
But I often wish I had her,
When I feel so tired and sad:;
If T only had a mother,
I ehftuld be ?? very glad."
"I think the sweetest word is Tija VEN,"
Said little Emma Gray,
" Because I know that there wc hav
Our tears all wiped away.
And little Johnny's gone, I know,
To walk the golden street,
Because he told us, when he went,
That there we all should meet."
" The sweetest word.of ail ?s JESUS,?
Said good Amelia Ray^
? Because I knsw he died for us,
To take ?ur sins away.
"Twas bc who gave us all a home, '
A mother, and a heaven :
But, better than all gifts of earth, ~*
m own dear life was-given."
Swcot Hattie Eent was last to speak ; #?
She raised her gentle eye,
And a tear stole down her -.ale, thin ehee!
And she answered quiotly,
J' I think, even moro than home or heaven
Or any word I know,
That 'whosoever' is tho best
Do you not all think so ?"
Incident-* of the Late Hattie*. '
A correspondent of the Petersburg Eq

some time since :
A RRACE OF ?ANEEE CEN ERA LS.
The Yankac Brigadier Generals Seyn

VERT GRATEFUL TO THE CONFEDERATES.
Among tLc prisoners who reached Goi
?onsville shortly after the battle of the Wi
dcrness, was a Yankee Colonel, who expres
sed biaisetfas exceedingly delighted at Li
capture, ittdeed, we learned, that bc ?ftere
no resistance to beiug made prisoner, ll
openly said that lie would not take ten thoi

Virginia papers say the let0.11 ^tlc (leid ol
tLe Wilderness and tLe one euee'^H? ,t:
botli M which were held by our troops, are
represented to haye*been remarkably .rich in
plunder, and after Grant was forced back,
our troops were not slow to take- advantage,
of its offerings. Thousand of pairs of &bjftsr
and boots, splendid or? cloths, coats, plants,
knapsacks, haversacks, etc., *were brought ;
from thc field. But the two latter were al-J
ways of much greater interest to the* soldierJ
than the others. ?h them are found the - ra
tions and clothes and all tho little " notions"
of the Yankee. Sugar and coffee are-always
acceptable te a hungry man, w-hile stationery',
Emrscs of money, good underclothing and the
ike are not to be despised in tbeso times.
Hundreds of daguerreotypes were also taken
from the dead bodies of Yankees and preserv
ed hy the captors. Watches and rings and
breast-pins innumerable were gathered among
the spoils of the fields. J-tr one instance, it is
? related that five watches were 'taken from
cue dead Yankee, who, no doubt, before his
death, had plundered them from tho dead
bodies of hi.i comrades. Money, in many
instances, was found in considerable sums,
but most always in greenbacks and seldom \
in specie. Thc fields', owing lo the rapidity ;
of movements in both armies, were not half j
plundered, ?ad thegreator portion of thespoils j
still remains. r j

Lee's present positron is ono tint would !
sfctu to be of great .natural advantages, as
now understood: his forces arc immediately?
North of the juuctiou nf thc ('entrai and
Frcdcricksburg Railroads. On the North:'
his fr#nt is secure by the North Anns ? on
thc Fast, thc same stream protects bis right
flunk ; and his ivar is defended by. the prox- <
imity of Little River and some swamps, thus
leaving his left wing alone uncovered by some
natural defence. On this wing, accordingly,
it is that Grant is making his assault. AW
ready a portion of his forces have crossed at
? Jericho Ford, some twelve miles rearer to
j our line than the old Porlersville Road, along
j which it was thought be would advance. By I
crossing at this point, the opposing foi ces aro ?
brought in such close proximity, only live or I
six miles apart, that an early and desperate j
action is inevitable, unless Lee should fall :
back over the Little River to thc South Anna. I
From certain information, not uow proper
to divulge, 't is highly probable truck will bc j
his policy, m which case Grant's further ad - j
yance will bo for some time delayed. By
such a falling bade upon our part, he would
.?rain possession of the junction, thus fvreinj?
Lee to exteud his lines from tho central
the Fredericksburg Road in order to secure
that amouut of transportation necessary for
his anny, and which neither could sufficiently
furnish of itself, lu addition to this, it is
almost ceriain that^Goraonsvile will fall into
Yankee bauds, thus enabling Grant to com
plete the Orange and Alexandria Road -io
. Culpeper C. H., that lino having heretofore
been in our possession r.s far North cf Gor
donville as llapidan Station. This accom
plished, the Orang?* and Alexandria, for its
full extent, and .considerable portions of the,
Central and Frcdericksburg Loads, will be
in possession of the euemy.
lu case, as anticipated here, Lee should
further relirquhh ?Jie South Anna ?or the
purpose of drawing Grant further on, tho old
Valley Rood, leading directly from this city
to th? Valley, through Louisa Court IIcufe,
Gordonville and Scanardsvillc, will be left
to use and cccup.\tion ol" thc enemy's forces.

j lines of communication, and garrison, such

From the Richmond Sentinel of the llOth
vic obtain the following :
There was a heavy cavalry engagement on
Saturday at or near Hawe's Shop, on the
raad from Me?hanicsville to IIan?vertown,
about seven miles beyond fha former place
aad five miles this side of the JattCr. The
enemy's cavalry were in^ great strength, nor
vere we ourselves deficient 'On both sides
tie troops dismounted for thc fight.
The enemy'sskirmishers werejswiftly driven
in, and by a charge from our line his troops
were dislodged lrom the cover under which
they sheltered, which was taken possession
ol by our men. Three attempts were made
by the e:iemy to recover the position. Inst,
but every assault was repulsed. -The .fight,
which commenced at about nine o'clock, in
the morning, had lasted until about hall-past
four, ?hen Warren's (Fifth) corps of infan
try was seut by Grant to the support of his
cavalrymen. Our cavalrymen there upon fell
back about a mile, and took position ?n a
creep, where they were not followed.' Our
retreat wa3 under good cover, and is believed
to have been made without loss.
The troites on our side were commanded by
Gen. Wade Hampton, who put in thc troops
'magnificently. Our soldiers fought with ex
emplary coolness and spirit, and must have
inflicted very heavy loss on thc enemy. As
an illustration of the severity of the combat
and the character ol' thd fighting, a soldier
who bad tired forty-five cartridges, did . not
fire one without seeing hismnn, and taking
good ainrat him.
The obj^cLof the enemy's cavalry waa prob:

in speaking of matters in Virginia, ?sys :
If Lee succeeds in beating back Grant, or
keeping bim at bay, as bc bas done hereto
fore, nil thc subsidiary movements become
worthless and a waste of valuable military
power. Tba dread issue is yet to be-decided;
and between (he two great armies. So lar,
Lee ha-? kept lija groat antagonist at bay; nnd
if he is as successful for the- -next two -.vecks
as he has been fur the last twelve day?, i|ii?
last cainpaign against Richmond, and thc chief
rebel army, will have been a more signal, be
cause a larger and more imposing, failure
than any that has preceded it.
The Frcdericksburg correspondent of the
News writes thus : ...
When the people of the North bring them
selves to believe the palpable Iradi that Gen
oral Lee's army is strong in numbers." brave
ia ?pirit and iree from anything savoring of
demoralization, they will appreciate the mag
nitude of the table undertaken by General
Grant Before the recent hatti . ", we \vere
told that the Confederates were hungry, nak
ed and disgusted. They were said to be de
salting by the hundred, aud the poor craven
hearted ones who came into our lines repre
sent the comrades they left behind as com
pletely demoralized, tired of rebellion, and
quite .'??liing to lay down their anus. We
now find by experience that the rebels arc
determined to fight it out to the bitter end,
that their numbers are almost equal to .out
own, that they are neither hungry nor naked,
aud that their otgapization and spirit arc as
strong to-day a? they were two years ago.
It thc matlcr of losses, it is very evident
that ours hus been greater than that of the
enemy. Troops lighting from behind breast
works are not likely to sillier so much as those
miking the attack. Lee fought under favor
able circumstances in every engagement. At
tho Wilderness. his men were concealed in
denso woods until thelnonv?nt ol' attack ; and
after a charge they immedintely retired u^am
to sheller. Ju tbesuceeedii'oing engagements,
and particularly at Spottsylvania, they were
protected by ri ile-pi ts and breastworks. Our
men hat! to charge on these rro?itions,; often
being expired to a destructive enfilading fire
of grapeshot and canister. In thia way they
were mowed down b? thousands. When
Barnside attempted tv carry the enemy's
t works on Thursday, bis-men were exposed to
this most destructive of all fire?, until they
reefed, staggered, and fell in heaps. .
