THE BATTLE OF SHILOH—
INTERESTING AND VIVID
INTERESTING AND VIVID SOUTHERN ACCOUNT---NARRATIVE
OF GENERAL BASIL
' : We make tbe following jextrach
from a new forthcoming work,'soon
to be issued in" Cincinnati. : We
.ftllu4e ,to;.(he history . of (Jeneral
Basil Cuke, of General Morgan's
Celebrated partisan RangerB, of
which Duke was the most cele
brated officer. It relates to the
battle of Shila, and commences on
the morning of the 6th of April :
f The afternoon wore away and no
sign in the enemy's camps indicat
ed that : he had discovered our
presence. The night fell, and the
stern preparations for the. morrow
having been all completed, the ar
my sank, to rest. The forest was
soon almost as still as before it had
been tenanted with the hosts sf
war. , But, before the day broke,
the. army was astir; ;. the bugles
sounded the reveille ok all sides,
and the long lines began to form.
About five o'clock, ' the first gun
rang on the front another and
another,' succeeding, as our skir
mishers pressed on, until the mus
ketry grew into the crackling, la
bored sound, which, precedes the
roar of real battle. The troops
seemed excited to frenzy by the
sound. It was the first fight in
which the majority of them had
ever been engaged, and they had,
asyeti seeri and ' suffered nothing
to abate the ardor with which the
high-spirited young fellows panted
for battle. , ; Every one who wit
nessed the scene the marshaling
of the Confederate Army for attack
upon the morning of, the 6th of
April--must remember, more dis
tinctly than anything . else, ; the
glowing enthusiasm of the men,
their bouyancy' and spirited impa
tience to 'close'with the enemy.
As each regiment formed upon the
ground where ijtr jhad', bivouacked,
the voice of its commander: might
be heard as he spoke high words
of encouragement to his men, and
u puid rmg clearer as he appeal
ed to their'' regimental pride, and
bade them think Cf the fame they
mjghwirtj l;Whn the" hSS. l$an
U advance, the. wild cheers, wuiw?
arose made the woods stir as if
with the rusty .of a. mighty wind.
Nowhere, wa there any thought of
fearwevery.where ' were ithe ;, evi
dences pfjmpettjous and detennin
ed valor, .: . ::-;. .
' Vof some distance the woods
were open and clear 'of under,
growth, and the troops passed
through,' preserving their array
with little difficulty ; but as the
point, where the fight befween the
pickets had commenced was near
ed, the timber became dwarled into
scrubby brnsh, and at some places
denet. thickets .impeded the ad
vance, The ground, too, grew rug
ged and difficult of passage in un
broken line. Frequent halts to re
form jind dress the ranks became
necessary, and at such times Gen
eral Johnson's : magnificent battle
order. was read to the regiments,
and ts manly, heroic language
was listened to with the feeling it
was intended to evoke. ' The gray,
clear 'morning was, ere long, en
livened with a radiant sunrise ; As
the great light burst in full splen
dor' above the horizon, sending
brilliancy over the scene, many a
man thought of the great conquer
or's augury and pointed in ' exulta
tion and hope to the Sun of Shiloh.P
Breckinridge's division' went into
the fight last and,' of course, saw
or heard a great deal of it, before
becoming itself actively engaged.
Not far off, on the left' and' center,
thel fight soon: grew earnest as
IIarde dashed resolutely on ; the
uneasy broken Tattle of the skir
mishers gave way to the sustained
volleys of the lines, and the artil
lery joined i in the clamor, while
away pri the right, the voice of the
strife swelled hoarser and angrier,
ljke the growl , ot some wounded
monster.- furious and at ; bay.
Hardee's .line carried all before it.
'At'' te,first, encampment it met
not even the semblance of a check.
Following, close, and eager upon
uie lieeing picKeis, . n oursi upon
the0 startled , inmates : as . they
emerged, half clad, from their tents,
giviugauwiu iiu uujb tu lurui, unv
ing them in rapid panic bayonet
ing tliej dilatory on through the
campj swept,' ' together, pursuers
and pursued. ' But now the alarm
was thoroughly given, the "long
roll" and the'bugle, were calling
the Federals to arms ; all- through
theirj thick encampments they
'As Hardee," close ' np6n"ti6
haunches of the foe he had first
started, broke into another camp,
a long line of steel and flame met
him, staggering, and, for a little
while, 6topping his advance. But
his gallant corps was 'still too fresh
for an ! enemy, not yet recovered
from the enervating effects of sur
prise.'to hold it back long,' For a
while it writhed and surged before
the stern barrier suddenly, erected
in its front,1 and then, gathering it
self, dashed irresistably forwaid.
The enemy ! was beaten back; but
the hardy Western men who filled
his ranks although, raw and for
the first time under fire could not
be forced to positive flight. They
had once formed, and at this stage
of; the battle tji'ey could not be
routed.- They had little of discip
line,' but' plenty of staunch cour
age. Soon they turned for another
standi and the Confederates were
at once upon them. Again they
gave way, but strewed the path of
their stubborn retreat with many a
corpse in gray,' as well as in blue.
At half-past seven the first line be
gan 'to give signs of exhaustion,
and its march over the rough
ground while struggling with the
enemy had thinned and impared it.
It was time for Bragg's corps to
come to the relief, and that superb
line now moved up in serried
strength. ' ' " : 1 :"
The first sign of slackening upon
the part of the Confederates seem
ed to add vigor to the enemy's resistance.-
But bravely as they
fought, they never recovered from
the stun ' of the surprise.' Their
half of the battle was out of joint
at the beginning, and it was never
gotten right daring that day. They
were making desperate efforts to
retrieve their ' lost ground when
Bragg's disciplined tornado burst
upon them.' ' The shock was met
gallantly, but in vain. ' Another
bloody grapple was followed by
another retreat of the Federals, and
again our 'line moved on. ,: ' , ,
. Those who .were in that tattle
will .remember , these successive
contests, followed by short periods
of apparent inaction, going on all
the day.. .To use the illustration of
one well acquainted with its plan
and incidents : ?It ;went on like
tiib regular stroke of, some tremen
dous machine." There would be a

bgain in a few minutes, and the
charge, struggle, and horrible din
, About half-past ten Polk's Corps
prepared to lake part in the fight
lie had preyiously, by order per
sonally given by General Johnson,
(who. was all the time in front,)
sent one brigade to reinforce Gen
eral Bragg's right, where the second
line had been most hotly engaged,
lie also sent, by order of General
Beauregard, one, brigade to the
left. The fight at this time was
joined all along the line, and urged
with greater fury than at any other
period of the day. Almost imme
diately after parting with these two
brigades, General folk became en
gaged "with t the remainder pf his
corps. The enemy : had now dis
posed his entire force for resistance
the men fought as if determined
to not accept defeat and their
stern, tanacious leader was not the
man to relinquish hope, although
his had been repeatedly broken,
and the ground was piled with his
slain. The corps of liar dee, Bragg
and Folk were not striving abreast,
pr mingled with each other.
In reading the reports of Con
federate Generals, frequent allusion
will be found to regynents and bri
gades fighting without "head or or
ders.'? , One ; commander , , , wculd
sometimes direct the movements of
troops belonging; to another.- At
this phase of the struggle, the nar-
Sative should dwell more upon "the
iographies of the regiments than
the hfstory of the battle." But
the wise arrangement of the lines,
and the instructions given subor
dinate . commanders, insured har
monious action and the desired re
sult. . , ,i ..(..... . ., , ,
Each brigade-commander was or
dered (when he became disengag
ed), to seek and attack the nearest
enemy, to press the flank of every
stubborn hostile force which his
neighbors could not move, and, at
all hazards, to press forward. Gen.
Johnson seemed ' to have adopted

[From the Alton Democrat.
The community were, perhaps, moro in
tensely stirred yesterday afternoon than
they have ever been since population lias
been located nearPlasa Creek IIollow. The
afflictive news was the drowning of three
of the pupils of that department of the
Public School ou State street, nndcr the
direction of Miss McNeil. Three brlffht,
lively children, Joyous, happy, sporting
like the butterfly lu thesltn the hope and
joy of their parents were called into the
spirit-world without notice and in defiance
ol all the exertions that could be mude for
their relief. '
They had ventured out upon the treach
erous surface ot a pond in the rear of the
school-house, which had lust been frozen
by the recent cold snap ; it had broken un
der their feet and there they perished. The
sufferers were a little boy of eight years
old, named Robert Smiley, and ano lier by
the name of John Jlontl', ngen ten. These
had broken through the Ice and were strug
gling In the water, when Miss Ora Monti,
aged about thirteen, the sister of one of the
drowning boys, resolutely rushed to his re
lief. , Alas, she could do no more In the ice
cold water, much beyond her depth, than
her brother, and only succeeded in sacrific
ing herself, instead of relieving hlra. ,
Unfortunately, no one was In the neigh
borhood at the time who had the BtamTna
and the ability to swim. One pale, sickly
lockiug man plunged into the water, and
was scarcely able to get out again, perhaps
would not, It assistance had not by that
time been afforded him. After considera
ble effort the bodies of the children were
recovered, but toe late to afford any chance
for their resuscitation. . . ; .
We learn that some of the school child
ren bad been reproved and punished In the
morning session, for playing upon the Ice,
but unfortunately, they did not, for all that
apnreclnte tbe great danger they were in.
We sincerely sympathize w ith the be
reaved parents and friends In their great
calamity, and hone that other children will
learn to obey their teachers and parents,
for by so doing they will not ouly escape
many physical dangers, but other calami
ties from which that mature advice will be
able to shield them. . .
Since tbe shove was in type, 1 we learn
that one of the little boys could swim, and
actually got hold ol the ice to draw him
self out, when he was seized by the other,
whose weight he was not able to support.
Just as they were about going down tor the
last time, little Monti was caught by the
arm by his sister, when all three met their
fate. She had previously pushed out a
board to support her, but the weight of the
children overturned it. Sach heroism and
self-devotion as she displayed is remarka
ble. ' The funeral is in motion while we are
writing. The publio schools are all in at
tendance, thus paying the last tribute of
respect to their lamented comrades. ) t

THE NOMINATION OF
As the 4th of January Conven
tion draws near, there is consider
able discussion ad to who shall be
placed on the ticket for the various
offices to be filled. Judge1 Thuf
man and Gen'l Steedman are most
prominently spoken of In connec
tion with the office of Governor.
For the position of 'Lieutenant
Governor, we notice tbnt a number
of the Democratic papers have ex
pressed themselves for, Mr. J. B'
Putnam, the editor of , he . Chillv
cothe Advertiser, and member, of
the Legislature from Licking coun
ty. The Highland (0.),Pemocrat
thus urges the claims of our worthy
editorial confrere. It says
, r ine lact mat Mr. Putnam, is, a
printer and an editor and a numj
ber-one man in either profession
is enough to insure to him the cor
dial . support of tho Democratic
press of the State. That . he is
sound and unfaltering in the Dem
ocratic faith, always firm, unyield
ing and undismayed in every crisis,
Ought to secure to him the vote of
every delegate in Convention i for
the. ; nomination : and the further
fact that he has had several, years
of practical legislative experience,
and is perfectly familiar with' par
liamentary rules and usages, should
convinc.A all nf Mi f:it .ih3t ki
most admirably adapted to : the. po
sition, and welL qualified.tonqis

upon a Lieutenant-Governor.""!; J
" "Mr. Putnam is not only a fluent
writer and speaker but. a ' gentle
man of pleasing deportment and fe
suavity of manners that nover fails
to draw arouiu lunva large circle
of friends, arid to render him t6bu-
lar in whatever sphere or circle he
may move, lie will be 'the right
man in the. neht rlace." and. wb
sincerely hope that the Convention
will have the discretion , and gopd
sense tput him in nomination'

An exchange furnishes :the .fol
lowing hints to ministers:. ' '.n
"Nev6r make an apology in the'
pulpit; you will lessen yourself by
so doing. Don't make. Jong intro
ductions to your sermons ; a porti
co should never be as large as the
house. Do not make' a repeater of
yourself, by. repeating thej:same
thoughts in your; firstly, , secondly
thirdly, lastly, and in conclusion.
Never defend yourself in the , pul
pit against any evil thing said bf
you. You are set for defense'of
the gospel, and- not of your owi
reputation. Keep your account
with God and not with men,, ,and
he will defend you." Don't preach
long sermons, for long sefmons do
no good, but often do harm.' Every
moment you detain your: hearers
after they become weary, yqu datm
age . them and yourself also., ,Buy
the length of a sermon1 is not 'al
ways measured by the time taker!
in its delivery. A sermon thathas
neither hight, depth nor breadth
must necessarily be a long one ; or
a sermon which doesv not. interest
the hearers will always be, a long
one. As long as you can' hold; the,
fixed attention of. your heafe'rty'it
will be safe to go on, but when you
can neither gain or retain such at
tention,close as. soon as possible.
Give your hearers as many thoughts
in as few words as you possibly
can. Let your motto be multuin iii
parvo. .Never snun to declare all
the counsel of God,' for ybri ariay
safely preach a whole gospel eve
ry where. ',,.
