Mr. H. V. Redfield, who is one of t
the most careful and observant cor- V
respondents in the country, has just a
opntributed a paper to the PhiladolN
pia Weekly Times, that produces e
peculiar interest and uignification. t
BETWEEN TWO FIRES.
--Mr. Red field was during the war a
strict non-combatant. He was Qua. d
ker like in his love of peace, and
-pursued his inoffensive business, with .
a mildly and beaming eye. Ue was
ituated on contesty ground; just
btween the Union and Confederate
armies. One day he was surrounded
the Yankees, and the next day
i placid and unruffled face beamed
Slike a full moon, from the midst of
oungry rebel host.
4 t thus happened that Mr. Red-- C
ield, who was clipping a piece of C
*on-explosive calico, or weighing a
y ound of ten, would observe thinigs

SThe first point of difference be
'Atween the armies was the disparity
a i equipments. The Nor'thern sol,
ie41r. had the very best of clotbing
b1tat money could buy or the mar
bets pf Jhe w~orld furnish. They had
endid double overcoats, oil-eloth
'werings, and perfect guns and ae
ta'etnients. Their wagons and

phie other hand, were shabbily and C
ypfilently dressed. They wore

r. Rtedfield has seen four or five t
nds of rifles and shot guns, all sorts r
atddles, some with rope stirrupsn,
R many of them without blanike:a. i

rmies, composed for the most par

warm climate, could have fought

id for five long Vears amid the

lerfect in the Northern thaa the

iscipline was perfect from the filst.
he officers were supreme in the
ederal army. They were obeyed
mnplicitly and with non-questining
romptness. The case was different
ith the Southerners. There was
iore individuality among these solu
iers. Almost every man had high
ieas of persunal dignity and inde

Mr. Rledfield says there was much
