A Ride over the Bloody Battle-Fleid of
TtIE FEDERAL AND CONFEDERATE DEAD.
From a correspondent of tie Memphis
Argus, written from Corinth, Mississi~ppi,
we make the following interesting extract !
The first point usually visited by those
who stop here to examine tie battle-field, is
a strong earthwerk known as Fort Itobinett,
imimediattly north of the Memphis and
Charleston road, on the hill. just above the
first "cut," o t.hat rolid, about, a quarter of
a mile west of the tolkyn. Here occurred,
on ie morning of the 4th of October, that
q desperate conflict, so well known to immor
tal fitane. in which Col. Wm. 1'. Rogers, of
lite 2d Texas regiment, contmmanded.on that
and the previous day a b igade of Texas
and Arkansas rpslgters.
Col. ROgers fel, figh qng within the fort,
and is binriadijust. w it m
i(ogers is, I am told, thme oily one who was
properly buried; that Is to say, Ihe only one
who'was buried deep enough to prevent the
ruinms from wai.hing the dirt away and ex
posing is bones. lie, it, is said, was bur
ried updar the Immediate supervision of
(,en. Uosecrans, who had the substautial
pitling placed- around Ike grave, aqA! a
-161adboard, with this I oription . "Col.
Iieu. Rogii, 21 Texas Regiment, Killed
()ct. 40h, IM04." .As will be seen from this
(which is.a, exact copy), General Rose
cra,ns made a mistake in the first or chris
tian namti of Col. Rogers. It *ould- read:
,col. Wmn. -1. iodgers, 24 Texas, &c. It
will be remembered by many of your read.
ers that beneral Roseqrdna, in some official
c-rrespondonoe .*ith Generals Van lorn
antd 'rice, soon after the battle, spoke in
most glowing teriss of the gallantry ot Col.
Rogers, namning hig, I believe, "the bray
eA of the brave." lie also complimented
time en'tire division to which the knightly and
peerless hero belonged-Maurey's--and
said that the brave d'cad of so gallant a,dt
vision shoullpever w.ant for fitting burial
at. his iands -or words to that effect. No
doubt the GeUral fully' intended.to carry
out thid pro 'W, and probably issued or
ders accordingly; but those orders were
certainly fer fitingly carried out, as will
appedr to Iy one who rides over the fielli
as appeared to hundreds. and thousands who
have ridden over it sinoo the close of the
In tIe northwestern angle formed by the
crossing of the railroads, bor Corintb out
to and beyond the outer lipe of works,
Itree and a half miles distant, the whole of
this great battle-feld is dotted here and
there--u some places thick as meadow
imolehills-'with the grav'es of Federal, and
the exposed remains of Confedor.to d,d.
The Confederate dead, it Olearly appears,
were merely covered up On tho I und

ieatly intered, . in the usual way, with
hmead and foote boards Ia every inutaOoe, and
in nlost eases, I belieye, were,lnolosed with
Swooden palings. I saw bu& one' Federal

A description of the condition of the re
mains of tli Confederalb dead on the field
of Corinth will. I preshme. answer for that
of most of liso who fell in the desparate
and sanguinary battle of Shiloh : and it is
earnestly hoped that the -pubtio journals of
the South ill, at an early day, call atten
tion to tie subject, and urge the people to
move in t4e.matter immediately, to the end
that'remedial measures may be adopted, and
the demands of common humanity Faisfied.
All over these fields of carna;o tie bones
of brave men front every Southern State lie
exposed to time action of the inclements
above ground, and are mapidly hastening to
decay. Especially interested ili this sub
!ect, and in seeing that justice he done in
the premises, are West Tennesseee and
No-th Mississippi, and Memphis and New
Orlens, whose gallant ions perished here
by the hundred and by the thousanud, in a
cause which, though now forever lost, they
honestly beleved involved tie salvation of
a great principle and the defence of their
native land from unwarranted invasion.
Shall the mqmory oi these bravo and car.
nest men be thus dishonored 7 Shall that
memory be held so cheap by its, hlie survi
vors, that we may deny to theim the poor
tributtd of decent burial, and a compend ts
monunent here atorinth, to perpetual ^#t
least, thmir daring And their devotion to
principle? Forbid it., Ileaen!
The cause for which they struggled has
gone down1eneath the stern decrees of fate;
but they were none the less good men and
true. The great, and tien still open ques
lion of ultimate State sovereignty, for
which they had died, itas been decided ad
versely by lite supremest of ait earthly
courts, but they were none ie less honest
litigants. and are entitleA to respect of all
honest men everywhere, however much dit
fering With them in opinion. Thp renown
.of their courags and devotio, rivaling timat
of. tie bravest and truest knights of oW, or
that of tIme me'n of King Leonidas at time
"Pass," has gone throughout all lands,
"Where e'er beneath thesky of Heaven,
The birde of farne have flo.wn."
(very where, except among those unap
peasable cowards of our land who com.
lynced tighting after time war was over,
e ese noble lead have beep
IA'nkvoeiri Aig7o-Saxons of every
age, for a principle. Thei fame has inss
ed into history. Without. dciding whether
theii caust was, on the whole, right ' oe r
ring, the intolligent, time good and the truth
ful of all civilized countries have hailed
them as herocs, and held up their noble
qualities to the admira,ion of all mankind.
Shall we be less respectful to our own bret i
ten? Shall we neglect them? 8hall we
permit their bones to bleach and rot above
ground on all those battle-fielda: Again I
say, forbid it, Heaven! Forbid it, every
noble, every honorable impulse of a com
mon humanity I

personage than Queen*Victoria. It Immns,
for a long time, been on people's
to0gues; but it has at last ma ppeared inI
the newspapers. It is said that the
Queen has taken a prodigious liking for
a wry good looking, but "ignoble"
Scotchman named Brown, who was
formely a sort of out-door body servant
-to Prince Albert, and' indeed bears a
strong resemblance to the Prince. She
so dotes upon him that she keeps him
gonstantly near * her person at all
her palaces and at all her jour
eys to and from them. She con
sults her pet on all subjects, and takes
his advice so absolutely that the rest of
the royal household have becomg very
jealous of him. The last story is that
she is going.to knight him. Marry she
cannot,for the law of the realm forbids her
to marry one of her own subjects. It is
very disagreeable, nay it is worse than

Agricultural Value of Birds.
Recently at one of ille meetings of
the MassaclIhusetts Agricultural Society,
Mr. EC. A Samiuels, of Boston, deliter.
ed an address on the "Agricultural Val
ue of Birds." 'Takiucg up the different
classes, he gave the feeding habits of
each. Owls destroy vormin of various
kinds, moths and otlher noxious insects.
The cuckoo is especially fond of t ho com
mon apple tree caterpil;ar, and has de
stroyed whole nests. Woodpeckers do
very valuable service in hunting out the
insects in the bark of trees which they
tap for that purpose in the fall and win
ter, when tie sap is not Elowing. Mr.
Samuels protested against the prejudice
existing against the robin, as that bird
fed almost exclusively on insects, arid
was excelled in destroying them only by
the small woodpecker and the chica dee.
The thrush- family seems- designed by
nature to rid tihe surface of tho. soil of
noxious insects not often pursued by
oher birds. Wa'rblers capture0insecis
that prey on the foliage of tlie trees, fly
catchers seize them as they take winf
and the swailow captures all that re
mains. Woodpeckers dig the larva from
the trees, while wrens, nuthatches, tit.
mice and creep6rs eat the eggs and
young that'live on and under the bark.
Thrushes subsist on the insects that de
stroy the vegetation on the surfaco of
the earth. Most of these birds have
enormous appetites. The robin, - as
shown by experiment, required -41 per
cent. of worns more than his own
veiglt daily to keep him in good condi
tion. Those birds which do not eat
smafl fruits are of the least benefit to the
farmer. Nature gives no boon without
exacting some slight return. but the few
cherries or other fruits which the robin
eats are amliply paid for by his invaluna
ble services. The chlithadee destroys
the eggs of 200,000 noxious insects in a
year. The red-winged black-bird fluids,
and destructive grubs. In regard to th
fimily coriia the le6turer had not, so
good an opinion. He had known the
bhue jay to destroy thb young of other
birds. He protested against any repeal
of the present bird laws, which were of
such great benefit to the farmer.
. H IW LAMP C1I1MNEYS BRrAK."It
is a fact known to the philosophical in.
strument makers that if a metal wire be
drawn through a glass tube, a few hours
afterwards the tube will burst into frag
ment. This will not happen if a piece
of soft wood is qmployed. The late An
drew Ross informed me that on one- cc
casion, late in the evening, he lightly
pushed a piece of cotton wool thiough a
number of barometer tubes with a piece
of cane, for.the purpose of cleaning out
any particles of dust., The next moru
ing he found most of the tubes broken
lip into small fragments, the siliceous
coating of the cane proving as destruc
tive as he had previously known ilre to
be." Persons who have been in the
habit of using wires, table forks, and a

these chimneys, will, in the above stated
