p WII AT DOES IT MAT TER.
It matters little where I was born,
Or if mf parents were rich or poor;
Whether they shrank from the cold world's
Or walked in the pride of wealth secure;
But whether I live an honest man,
And hold my integrity firm in my clutch,
I tell you brother, plain as I can,
It matters much!
It matters little how long I stay
In a world of sorrow, sin and care;
Whether in youth I am called away,
Or live till my bones and pate are bare;
But whether I do the best I can
To soften the weight of adversity's touch
On the faded cheek of my fellow-man,
f It matters much!
It matters little where be my grave.
Or on the laud or on the sea!
By purling brook or 'neath stormy wave,
It matters little or naught to me;
But whether angel Death comes down,
And marks my brow with his loving
As one that shall wear the victor's crown,
It matters much!
TWO STORIES OF BRAVE MEN.
Number One-Gen. Hagood and a
A GRAPHIQ ACCCUNT OF A WELL
KNOWN INCIDENT OF THE CHARGE
AT YELLOW TAVERN-A STRANGE
AND TOUCHING SEQUEL.
From the News and ('ourier.
WASHINGTON, January 14.-Two
memorable incidents of the late
war, which excited more or less
r attention at the time of their occur
rence, have been recently recalled
to recollection under circumstances
v that invest them with a new inte
rest. Many of Gen. Johnson Ha
good's old soldiers will doubtless
recall the circumstances of the first
affair, while some members of Gen.
Kershaw's Brigade can perhaps
testify more in detail to the facts
of the second.
For the information of your
t other readers, however, it should be
Sbriefly stated that on the 21st of Au
a gust, 1864, Gen. Hagood's brigade
Swith five others were ordered to
carry a strongly entrenched Fede
Iral position on the Weldon road
-near the Yellow Tavern, a few
miles from Petersburge Virginia.
SFor some reason only two >riga1des,
of which Gen. Hagood's was one,
went into action, and Gen. Hagood
at the head of his men swept over
and beyond the first line of en
trenchments in a charge that car
rined all before it.
SAt the second line they were
confronted by overwhelming num
bers, and met by such a close aLd
deadly fire that their advance was
checked; and, further progress be
ing manifestly impossible, the comn
-mand halted and endeavored to
maintain the unequal fight where
it stood. Being wholly unsupport
ed, however, and it plainly appear
ing tuat the assault had failed on
this account, retreat became ine
SAt this critical moment a mount
ed officer dashed out of the Fed
eral breastworks and, riding down
the Confederate ranks, commanded
.the men to throw down their arms
and surrender themselves priso
- ners. A number of both officers
and men, deeming their plight a
hopeless one, obeyed the order al
most mechanically, and the officer
had already taken the colors from
the hands of the ensign, when Gen.
Hagood, who was on foot and at
some distance, discovered what was
taking place, and recognizing the
necessity for prompt action, order
- ed his men
TO SHOOT THE OFFICER~ ON THE SPOT.
This order was not heard, or, at
any rate, was not obeyed, and fir
iing his pistol at the bold rider
without effect, Gen. Hagood ad
vanced rapidly towards him, and
tdemanded that he should give up
the colors ou the instant. The
officer replied that the command
had surrendered and that '4en. Ha
good was himself a prisoner. Gen.
Hagood replied that no one but
- himself had any authority to sur
render; that he did not propose to
do so, and again demanded the
flag to be given to him, adding
that the officer was "at liberty to
return to his own line if he dideo."
"You have made a brave fig-ht,
Mnal1," renpnded the hava nd
determined Federal, "but if yo
look behind you you will see th
you are lost." A single glance i
the direction indicated revealed t
Gen. Hagood the fact that the ei
emy had closed in behind him an
that his command was surrounde<
There was not a moment to be los

and wifh the words fell heavily t
the ground as the ball from h:

Gen. Hagood's affidavit, which f
's by reason of its legal charas-ter and
intent necessarily omits the details
5t of the conversation that occurred
during the fight, together with
other incidents supplied in the first
portion of this article, is as follows: <
STATE oF SOUTH CAROLINA,
RICHLAND COUNTY. j
Personally appeared before me, i
D. B. Miller, clerk of the Court of ]
Common Pleas of the County and
> State aforesaid, Johnson Hagood,
who, being duly sworn, deposeth <
and says as follows:
e Tbat he, the deponent, is now 1
comptroller-general of the State of i
South Carolina, and was, during i
e the late civil war, in the service of
the Confederate States, command
h ing a brigade of Hoke's division of t
s the Army of Northern Virginia. i
e That on the 21st of August, 1864,
1 his brigade, then temporarily re
a porting to Maj. General Mahone, i
was with five other brigades order- t
ed eto assail the Federal position onI
sthe Weldon Road, near Globe Tav
term, a few miles below Petersburg.4
That when his brigade had
e reached the Federal intrenchments I
tand was struggling to carry them f
1it became apparent that the as
sault would fail, the other brigades
not co-operating vigorously as di
That the Federals pushed out at
d deployed line behind him to cut off
.his retreat, and at the same time he ~
saw among his men a mounted
Federal officer, who had apparent- I
ly come through a sallyport. This ~
officer had seized a regimental flag
eand demanded a surrender. Some 6
n officers and men had surrendered 1
but were not carried in; others re
fused, but just around him ceased c
fighting. Firing had ceasedi no
e where from the Federal line, and
d nowhere else from the Confederate i
e line. Deponent called to the men to
rshoot the officer and fall back in C
iretreat. They either did not in t
d the noise of battle bear the order,
or bewildered by the surrender of 1
' part of their number failed to obey. t
tIt was a critical moment demand- f
ring decision and immediate action. i
dIn a few moments the disposition a
to surrender would have spread, t
and the brigade would have been I
e lost. Deponent approached the I
' officer, demanding the colors, and
h that he should go back into his f
aown lines, telling him he was free i
to do so. The officer decisively1
refused, and the deponent shot I
him through tbe body. Mounting
the horse from which the o3fficer<
fell, deponent led his men againsti
the line in rear and succeedied in
bringing off the larger part of his t
i- command. Deponent learned a i
t- few days afterwards, from North
>f erm papers received through th
- lines, that the officer referred to
st was Capt. Dailey of Gen. Cutler'st
d The attempt of this officer to se- I
- cure the surrender of a whole brig-i
ade came very near succeeding.
a- It was one of the most dashing t
id feats witnessed by deponent, on f
I either side, during the war. Upon t
le the chance of securing a prize for1
1e the side he served, Capt. Dailey I
doubly staked his life, for he was
e- while in the Confederate line in as <
to much danger from the fire of his
b- own men as from his enemy.
a- Deponent further says that he

vith the request for a statement of
acts in the hope, most sincerely

erate Private who Lost his Life
Giving Water to Wounded Fed
The hero of the second incident
vas a Confederate soldier, a private
n one of the companies of Gen. J.
3. Kershaw's brigade. I do not
now his name, and his story, so
ar as it could be related by my in
ormant, was a brief one. Perhaps
3ren. Kershaw or some one of his
>ld comrades will supply his name
Ld a better account of his daring
The facts as told to me were,that
luring the battle oi Fredericks
)urg, and, after the Federals had
>een repulsed, with frightful loss,
n one of their attacks on Marye's
leights, a private of his command
ippeared before Gan..Kershaw with
nramber of canteens in his hand,
>r slung from his shoulders, and
Lsked permission to go over the
)reast-work for the purpose of car
-ying them to the wounded Fede
als, whose piteous cries for 'water!
vater!' could be plainly heard
Lmid all the horrid din of the bat
le. The ground where they lay,
n front of the works, was still
;wept by the incessant fire of the
)pposing forces, and Gen. Kershaw
iaturally declined to allow the man
o expose himself to such seeming
y certain destruction. Itas not
afe, indeed, to present theNlight
st target over the top of the earth
vorks to the deadly hail that was
oUred upon them. The brave
elow replied simply that he 'could
iot bear to hear the cries of the
vounded men," and would take the
isk if allowed to do so. Permis
ion was granted with some reluc
ance, and in another moment the
oldier was over the works and bus
ly engaged in his hazardous task
f ministering to the suffering and
rantic Federals around him. The
iring was steadily sustained on
oth sides while he was thus en
aged, and scarcely a minute e
apsed before a ball from the front
iearly tore off one arm and left it
angling uselessly at his side. No
hing daunted by his own~ severe
ound the noble fellow kept stead
ly on his errand of mercy, and
noved about his prostrate fellow
reatures distributing the water
hey so much craved as he went.
The singular spectacle seemed at
ast to have attracted attention in
he Federal ranks, and several of
icers could be seen intently watch
ng him through their field glasses,
.s though to satisfy themselves that
hey were not mistaken as to his
urpose. Recognizing the work
ie was doing, and the danger he
'as in, they suddenly stopped the
ring in his direction, which had
ndeed increased upon his first ap
earance. The Confederates fol
owed their example, and in a few
noments more a number of his
:omrades had joined the brave man
his self-imposed task. When it
vas accor.plished all returned to
heir own lines and the battle was
The sequel is a sad one. The
ae courageous and kind spirit
rompted the brave fellow to at
empt a like effort in the battle of
e Wilderness a little later, and
ie was shot down in his tracks and
nstantly killed, almost at the out
et of his attempt, with the can
ens yet in his hands. I am in
ormed that an effort will be made
o have a pension bestowed by the
Jnited States government upon

None but the contemptible are
upnshnive of scorn.
Two plainly dressed men en
tered a restaurant yesterday. and
drawsing chairs up to a table or
dered dinner. Several waiters and
the proprietor were present, but
paid little attention to the visi
tors. When the dinner arrived
the men began conversation.
'General,' remarked one, 'I was
very much pleased with the Chi.
'Yes, the demonstration wis
magnificent, but I dohi't believe
that the mayor should have ad
vised me so publicly not to accept
a third term. If the American
people want me to be President
again it is no more than right
that I should accept the position.'
'But, General, ain't you growing
tired of these receptions?'
'I tell you, Mr. Evarts, I am
actually tired. But I can't stop
it. Now just so soon as the people
find out that I am here there will
be a parade like a circus procession.
I think the best plan will be for
us to slip over to Hot Springs on
to-morrow's train. By the way
Mr. Evarts, this is an excellent
restaurant. If I am elected again
it is my idea to establish a res
taurant in the White House. Just
give it to some one you know.'
'General, don't you think this
man could run it well ?' said Mr.
Evarts in an undertone.
'Just what I was thinking
about ; and these waiters, I think
would adorn it.'
'I say General, I don't see how
we can keep down an ovation
here. We'd better let things take
their own course.'
'Yes, I think so.
About this time they had fin
ished eating. The restaurant man
had been paying closc attention to
the conversation, and when the
men arose and started out without
having paid for the meal the
-hash' man advanced and asked
Kl'his is General Grant, I be
'Why, I knew the people wou:d
discover my identity.'
'And this Secretary Evarts ?'
'W ell,' said Mr. Evarts, 'I must
confess that you have dropped on
-General,' said the restaurant
man, 'I was in your ar-my.'
'Yes, sir ; and I am delighted to

)EAR [IERALD: \We snatch a Mc
u,ent frot: our busy life to seud you a
line of remembrauce. Our village is
uudergoicg its aniual revolution :
windows from which )ld friends smiled
but yesterday, to-day reflect strange
faces. and sadlc we wiss the well known
footsteps aad fa iliar forms. And
time rolls on heedless of the.manifold
changes wreught by its relecties
wheel, but such is life.
'Tis a little space of time
To us aliotted here below;
A snatch of song, a simple rhyme,
A funeral knell, a wail of woe.
A dream, a happy dream of love,
A hope, a sigh, a doubt, a fear;
If earth grows dark 'tis biight above,
In Heaven 'tis joy undimmed by tears.
On yesterday we were made the
happy recipient of a copy of that most
worthy sheet, the Hampton Guar
dian, through the kindness of some
unknown friend. We are vulnerable
where newspapers are concerned, and
most gladly did we welcome this pleas.
ant messenger from the gray moss
By the way, dear HERALD, those
were nice things that were-said of you
by your brethren of the press, and
kindly spoken. Now we love to see
people speak well and kindly of each
other, especially those of the same
craft, for the day and hour will come
to us all when,e will wish naught
save kindly words and gentle phrases
had passed our lips. For sooner or
later each and all of us must lay down
the chart and ccmpass of life to drift
out with the tide. Yes, we read those
pleasant sayings with much pleasure,
for there are two things in which we
believe as we do the "Westminster
Catechism", namely, "Render unto
Cosar the things which are Cosar's",
"True hearts are more than coronets,
And simple faith than Norman blood."
A few days since there drifted into
:ur i fe as a token of remembrance a
b eautiful pair of crystal vases delicate
ly enwrought with gold. We were
touched by the gift, more so by its
,,rosentation, knowing full well that
purest friendship prompted the offer
ing. As we gazed on the rare work
tnanship and delicate tracery we
thought fitting emblenm in thy fragile
beauty of life's brief span and love the
golden threads which glorify it.
Fit chalice for an angel's tear, -v
For fading flowerets fitting bier.
The weather is charming, in fact so
far winter has been a delusion, and as
we sit by an open window with the
lelicious odor of precious violets steal
og round us, we are almost beguiled
uto the belief that winter with its
~hilling winds and nipping frosts has
~assed away. and we watch with un
~peakable joy the lovely hyacinths as
iodding their fragrant bells to the
passers-by they whisper of that charm
When flowerets bloom, and birdlings sing,
l'o welcome lovely summer in.

AN ABsoRBED READER.-In a
Dubuque (Iowa) church, before
he opcening of the Sunday morn
ng service, a man in a front pew
puled a paper from his, pocket
und began to read. He' became so
wvholly absorbed that he did not
>bser've the preacher when ho
rose to read the biblical lesson,
)or did he hear the loud and elo
4luent prayer that was afterward
>ffered. From page to page of the
?aper the reader glanced, rustling
hne crisp sheet in his hands until
avery eye in the church was at
~racted toward himn. The preacher
was embarrassed and the congre
;ation smiled and scowled, ac
.ording as tney thought the mat
~er funny or sad. Finally the
-bhoir struck up a hymn, 'Give car,
ye sinners, to the call,' and the
.bsorbed reader dropped his papet
ind gave heed.
A good book and a good woman
are excellent things tor those who
know how justly to aippreciate
their value. There are men, bow
ever, who judge of both from the
beauty of their covering.
Endeavor thyself to do so well
that others may rather envy thee
Lhy knowledge than laugh at thy
Blushing in youth is nothing
else but the fear to do ill.
If you act with a view to praise
onli, yon deserve none.
