Clara Barton's Experience.
This heroic woman lectured lantjweek
at Chicago on the scenes of the war.
We copy from the Tribune the follow
ing notice of the address :
Miss Barton, on being introduced by
the President, spoke for nearly an hour
and a half, interspersing the thrilling
incidents of her experience with vivid
descriptions of battles and sieges and
calling forth, frequent applause.
She said that sue came before them
both willingly and unwillingly; willing
ly to perform the duty which was upon
her, but regretting ber inability to speak
as her heart prompted her. ' If she had
been able to stand by the side of their
loved ones hen they breathed out their
lives, it was her duty to tell them of it
But she was an eastern woman and this
was a Western audience, and they would
say, "Does she unow tne Drignt record
which our men have made I Ob, yes.
she had heard with pride what Western
men have done. JNot only JNew York,
Pennsylvania and Massachusetts, bat
lL'inois, Ohio and Iowa, stood op in ter
rible contest. She had seen them fight
side by side, and fall and die together.
She wished her audience to cast aside
all that pertained to herrelf and remem
ber only those of whom she would speak,
and she would go away when her work
was done, regretting onlv that she could
do it so imperfectly. -When the war
broke out she struggled with her sense
of propriety until she beeame convinced
that it was her duty to go, and she was
ashamed that she had even hesitated.
When the battle of Cedar Mountain
took place, she started for the field.
With two lady attendants she stood up
in the freight cars as they rolled out of
Washington, hlled with boxes, barrels
and bales. At ten o clock on Sunday
she stood on the battle-field. Three
thousand wounded men lay on the
ground, and when night came on they
felt that fhey were alone and almost
helpless among the suttenng hosts.
Within fifteen minutes from their arrival
they had prepared refreshments for tue
famishing sufferers, who partook with
tears rolling down their faces, dividing
their thanks between tbe hands that fed
them and their God. The men lay so
thickly upon tbe ground that oue could
hardly step without treading upon them,
About three oclock in the morning a
surgeon came towards her in the dark
oess with his flickering candle, and ask
ed her to go and see a boy who lay at a
distance away, oho went with him,
slowly picking her way among the help
less, beseeching faces, till tbey came to
the spot where the young man lay, call
ing pitifully. "Mary, Mary, I am wound
ed. Come and help me.n She knelt
by him, kissed him, and laid her cheek
against bis. He cned with joy. "Vb,
Mary, you have come, and he clasped
his bloody hands about her neck, and
seemed happy to think that the sister
whom he had called was near him. So
he fell asleep until the morning, and
then he saw that the face over him was
not that of his sister," "but," said he,
"you have made me so happy that it is
nearly as wen as though t he were here.
He then begged to be taken to Wash
ington, for he had left his widowed
mother nt nome and must try to get
back to ber, or at least die in the hos
pital, where she could obtain hia body.
So he was taken up carefully, and laid
on the train, and taken away, and a few
davs after she learned that he was dead.
,At three o'clock the next day the last
train of wounded moved away, and in an
hour a terrible thunder-storm came up.
This was Monday, and since Saturday
nooa she bad not tasted tood. In the
midst of the wild storm, two miles awav,
the fearful battle of Chantilly began.
The rain poured in torrenU and dark
ness came onA lit up only by the flash of
lightning and artillery, coon another
wagon train of wounded came up, and
her assistants being now worn out, she
labored alone to minister to their wants.
When ther had been placed on the
cars she sought the shelter of a little
Sibley tent, but witb. the rain beating
upon it and running through it in tor
rents, it offered no inviting refuge. She
found the highest side and sank down
into the water, resting her head upon
her arm, knowing that if she laid down
the water would run into her ears. Thus
she slept two hours, when the rumbling
wagons awoke her, and she saw that
another train of wounded had come.
Thus the third day rose, and soon poor
Kearney s leaderless men came tramp
ing by, and the retreat had begun. She
hastened to the tram, and as it moved
off the torch was applied to the bridge.
At night they reached Washington, and
wearied oat, she sought a room and
slept for twenty-four hour.
Those rere the dark days when Pope
had been sacrificed, all the blood spilled
before Yorktown had beon wasted, and
all the army was being gathnred under
the guns of Washington,
On the lath of October she again set
out, thin time for Harper's Ferry, riding
eighty miles in any army wagon, witn
no female attendant, straight into battle.
Kfiafliitiu- tli.i Farrv nt 1-ncrth rbaa
heard sounds of artillery in the distance,
and driving on, they suddenly felt their
wheels crushing the bodies of slain men,
and found that they were on the battle
field of South Mountain, where dead
bodies lay thick around. Before day
light her wagon moved on past the train
of supplies and by night she was among
the great army of the Potomac, eighty
thousand strong with Burnside in com
mand. No other woman was on .the
ground and she felt alone and hopeless
in the face of the terrible duties of the
coming day, which would be the last
day to so many brave men. As the sun
next morning broke over Maryland
Heights, it shone on the faces of one
hundred and sixty thousand men stand
ing face to face. When the battle began,
she and her party drove around to that
part of the field where "Fighting JoeV
men were engaged, and dismounting
and taking her arms fnll of stimulants,
she soon came to a house which was
converted into a hospital. They had no
lint or dressings, using green corn to
staunch the blood from the veins of those
whose limbs were amputated. Her sup
ply was received with thankfulness and
she was soon busy at hei work of mercy.
While supporting a wounded man a ball
passed close to her arm, cutting her
sleeve and killing the poor man who was
resting upon her. All night they toiled
in caring for the thousands of wounded,
but it was not till the sun rose that they
knew how great bad been the cost ofthe
battle of Antietam. .
.She remembered eight months of
weary siege, when the brave regiments
stood thundering at the gates of proud,
rebellious Charleston. The lecturer then
gave a fine description of the fights of
Morris Island and Fort Wagner, where
side by side with the white hand lay the
dusky haod of the race who then, for
the first time, had the privilege of show
ing their devotion to the Union. And
when tbe battle wm won, foremost
among the victors were men from our
own state, ana one Drave omcer irom
our own city, Gen.- 0. L. Mann of the
Thirty-ninth Illinois. (Applause.)
, For long months the battle had con
tinued about fort Koyal; Moultrie was
crumbled to ashes; Wagner had surren
dered ; but Charleston still held out de
fiant Suddenly a whole army that had
fought among the clouds, disappears
from the public view, till all at once
Sherman's men stand proudly before
, Tbe speaker said that she had been
criticised as being greatly embarrassed
when she appeared before her audiences,
and she asked if she had not reason to
be when she remembered that she stood
perhaps before some of the very men who
had done these things, and before the
people of a State that had sent Colonels,
Major Generals, Lieutenant Generals,
Generals, and the great Captain of our
The lecturer then invoked a kindly
remembrance of those among us who
had done and suffered so much, and
called upon her audience not to allow
them to want for anything while they
lived. The debt which was owed them
had not outlawed ; it conld never be'
paid. In the legislative halls of this
state hang the tattered and bullet-
pierced banners which tell such a tale
of battle and blood. There let fathers
take their sons, and pointing to them,
teach them tbe lesson of a perpetual
Union. She appealed to the men ofthe
Republic, to remember the lessons of
the past, and see to it that the dead have
not died m vain.

there are now in Washington three cir
cles or cliques, very busy bringing out

Encounter Between an Elephant
and a Rat.
A very extraordinary encounter be
tween a rat and an elephant has recent
ly taken place in the Garden of Plants,
London, which was witnessed with in
terest bv Hundreds of persons. ' The
keepers were engaged in destroying a
great number of rats, when one of them
escaped and ran to the spot allotted to
the elephant oeeiug no other refuge,
in the twinkling of an eye the rat snugly
ence-nsed himself in the trunk of the ele
phant, very much to the elephant's dis
satisfaction. He stamped his foot and
twisted his trunk around like the sail
of a windmill After these evolutions
he stood suddenly still, evidently re
flecting on what was best to do. He
ran to the trough where he is acustom-
ed to drink, and plunged his trunk into
the water, then returned to his den.
and raising his trunk, with the water
he absorbed, he dashed out the unfor
tunate rat, which was in a sheet of wa
ter like that issuing from a fire engine.
When the rat fell to the ground the
elephant seized him and made him un
dergo the immersion and projection
four times. At the fourth throw it fell
dead. The elephant, with a majestic
air, but cool and placid, crushed his
annoying little enemy with his foot, and
then went round to the spectators to
make his usual collection of cakes,
susrar and other dainties. The feat was
received with vociferous applause, which
the elephant seemed fullv to under
stand and appreciate.

and Poverty lead to
Once opoa a time there was a King's
Son, who went out into the fields sad
and thoughtful He looked up at th
sky, which was so beautifully blue and
clear, and said with a sigh, "Ah I how
happy must they be who are in heaven."
At the same moment be preceived a
grey old Man, who was walking tbe
same way, and he asked him the ques
tion how he . could go to heaven.
" Through humility and poverty," an
swered the old Man. " Put on my old
clothes, and wander about the world
for seven years to learn what misery is:
take no money with yon, but when you
are hungry, beg a pice of bread of charitr
able people, and thus you will approach
gradually the gate of heaven." .
Thus advised, the Prince drew off his
fine clothing, and putting on instead the
Beggar's rags, he went forth into the
world, and endured much misery. He
took only the scantiest meals, spoke
never a word, but prayed daily to God,
to take him, if he pleased, to Heaven. -When
seven years had passed, he return
ed to his father's house, but nobody
recognised bim. He told the servants
to go and tell his parents that he was re
turned ; but the servants would not
believe him, and only laughed at his
pretensions. "Then go and tell my
brothers," said he, "that they may
come to me, for I should like to see
them once again." This request they
also refused; but at length one went
and told the King's children, but they
troubled not their heads about it Then
he wrote a letter to his mother, and de
picted all his misery, but said nothing
about his being her son. The Queen
pitying his misfortunes, caused a place
to be made for him below the staircase,
and there two servants daily had to
bring him food. But one of them was
wicked at heart, and asked, "What shall
the Beggar do with good food ?" and so
he kept it for himself, or gave it to the
dogs, while he took the poor, weak,
half-starved Prince nothing but water.
The other servant, however, was honest,
and took him daily what he received
for him. It was only a little, but still
enough to sustain life for a long while;
and with it he was quite content,

. Christianity is broader than all sects';
its blessed influence grows ever their .
petty creed-hedges to renovate the out
lying world, as the sunlight streams '
across farm inclosures and city walls,
and a whole continent besides.' The
moral elevation of Jesus is so great that
he overlooks the walls of all churches,
and his benignant, spiritual features at
tract thousands beyond all recognized - '
party lines. He was "the Son of Man."
Christ Jesus was pre-eminently sym
pathetic with all around him. He
touched human life at every point
lofty and lowly. He was not afraid to - -confront
a ruler, nor ashamed to pit
and heal a beggar. He did not draw - '
back his foot when a sinful woman's
warm tears trickled upon H, nor did he
refuse a publican's invitation to go and
be his guest "This maa reviveth tin-

the bigeted Pharisees. It is a bastard
Christianity which "snubs? honest
worth in a coarse coat, or refuses to pity
and shelter a harlot because she has -made
herself vile; or which builds a
'colored pew" in & back corner of the
sanctuary. The Divine Jesus was "sep
arate from sinners" in that be possessed '
