Next came a crimson w rapper,then

DOESN'T LIKE GEN. SHERMAN.
The Story of Col. Tom Worthlnrton, of
I From the Clnclnnattl Enquirer.]
Washington, March 17, 1878.—
There is an old man who appears
here from time to time, whose in
firmities are aggravated by a keen
sense of wrong Want and priva
tion havo added to his seventy
years. Although cleanly in his
person, lie is ragged and forlorn.
But he is burdened with an old
grievance—an affair long since for
gotten by Ihe public, ami so fierce
in his shrill denunciation, so te
dious in his recital, that men avoid
him, hurry away at his approach,
and bolt their doors against his en
Ami yet that man saved, in one
of the disasteis of the late war, our
army from utter annihilation. It
was no accident, but the result of
his own soldierly instincts and
high courage. His grand achieve
ment that ought to secure him at
least aid iv his old age, and imper
ishable renown after deal li, was Ihe
cause of his ruin.
1 met him upon the avenue last
Thursday. I made no effort to es
cape him, although,Olod knows, he
holds one as the dreadful old mari
ner held the wedding guest in Cole
ridge's wild poem. He goes over
tbe lute war again ami again. He
has all the facts with a fearful te
nacity in his mind, and only for
gets that lie has given them lo you
over and over before. His pale,
ashy face, once so strong in Its set
ting of full forehead, Roman nose,
and square, prominent and solid
chiu, has nothing left but
the gleam of an eye in which
there lurks a touch of insanity.
His slouched hat is pulled over his
white head, us if it were a night
cap. His clothes, of a past fashion,
are ragged uud threadbare, while
his feet are clad iv heavy shoes,
good for ten years' wear, that he
greases and wears innocent of socks.
Every part id' him indicates pov
erty, hut an independent, tierce sort
of poverty that defies charitable aid
While he rehearsed the old story
of wrong, ho suddenly stopped, aud
as ugly a gleam as 1 ever care to
see shut from his gray eyes. lie
was looking at a carriage and pair
that wa9 rolling by. The high
stepping buys in their glittering
harness were driven by a colored
man, sleek, fat und insolent, uml
they carriut Gen. Tecumseh Sher
man, sitting back with arms folded
as if he fell that the eyes of the
world were on him iv grateful ad
miration. My old friend lifted bis
arm and shook his clinched hand
at the carriage aud occupant as
they swept by, and cried out:
"There goes the damned scoun
drel —the da in tied, cowardly, lying
scoundrel: the damned traitor!
There he goes, damn him !"
Fearing that I might be impli
cated in this fierce indictment of
the General, I hurried uway. Bar

The man who thus anatlieniut i?. ;d
Sherman was old Tom Worthing,
ton of Ohio. A graduate of West
Point, he left the service for a more
active life, and did not return until
tlie late civil war broke upon Ihe
country, and he then raised a regi
ment, the Forty-sixth Ohio In
fantry, and look the field. He made
forthe liuie an extraordinary of
ficer. His keen soldierly instincts,
stimulated by an Indomitable en
ergy, am) sustained by all iron will,
were marred by a quick temper
and v coarse, oveibearing manner.
Col. Tom was a martinet, mid
drilled uud disciplined his troops.
His soldierly instincts taught him
that us much could be gut trum the
spade in the use of raw troops as
ttie musket, and his encampments
could be traced by the earthworks
ho left behind, aud he fought with
a readiness.! hut indicated pleasure
ill tbe fighting. These high quali
ties proved his ruin on a tryiugoe
casiou when any other man would
have secured fume and fortune.
Col. Tom's Forty-sixth Ohio In
fa n try mads apart of dram's and
Sherman's advunee when it went
into camp at Pittsburgh Laudluf,
probably remembered iv history
usShilnh. The 'Forty-sixth made
the extreme right, and Col. Worth
inglon went into camp full of
anxiety. He knew that tjruiil had
cut liis army in halves, and was
marching Into the enemy's
country with the leading half with
out the other iv supporting dis
tance. He saw with consternation
that the army was encamped
without reference to a defence, a
wide gap being left between the
wings for a force that was supposed
to be ten days at least in the rear.
This anxiety was not quitted by
the criminal negligence that left
this force without even a picket
Col. Worthingtoii repaired to
headquarters lo dud the Generals.
They were deaf to all suggestions,
aud he returned to make Ihe best
preparation he could to meet a ci
lamity hu knew to lie threatening.
The next morning the storm fell
in a surprise that spread Consterna
tion and dealh iv every direction.
Men at 7 A. M. weresbot while pre
paring breakfast, and bayoneted in
their tents. It was the most fright
ful coufusiou and slaughter.
There was one point that was uot
surprised and at which our troops
fought with a cool stubbornness
that had not been shaken by a sur
prise. It happened to be the key
point of the situation, held by Col.
Worthington, and around this the
few men that could be rallied
fought tho whole livelong day. The
rest of the army with Sherman
aud, I suppose, Oraut, was huddled
uuder tbe bank of the river where
the gunboats, with their heavy
pieces, afforded protection.
It was luck alone that brought
Buell and Nelsou, with their 26,000
men, within hearing of the guns
that scut their continuous roar
over thirty miles. These gallant
officers— aud Ood never created
braver, truer, or more able men—
pushed on, and arrived iv time to
save what criminal negligence had
Urant and Sherman ought to
have been court-martialed and
shot. Instead of this, Colonel Tom
Worthington was oourt murtialed
and cashiered. Had the old man,
like Buell, Nelsou, and a thousand
others, held a discreet Bilenue, his
gallant achievement would have
been rewarded with promotion; but
bis honest wrath ami Indignation
knew no bounds. On all occasions
he denouueed in the most profane
manner the conduct of these ine
briates, bis superior officers, and
Tbe oourt had its findings set
aside on tbe ground of Its being
unlawfully organized, or, to use a
plainer term, packed; but Presi
dent Lincoln, instigated thereto by
Halleck, dismissed Tom Wortblng
ton from the service.
These facts that I have hastily
recited are historical, and cannot
be doubted, let alone disputed. Tbe
military culprits in command have
to admit what every officer who
survived that fatal day are ready to
state. To havo It, however, dem
onstrated, I give you here a letter
from Gen. Beauregard, who was in
command after the gallant John
ston fell wounded. He says:
Niw Orleans. Jan. 29, 1878.
Dear Sue Yuar favor of the 22(1 lost

attack—about 6 P. m.-oi the Confederates
on that last stronghold of the Federals.

alluded to, was held by tho Forty-sixth

by in his equipage—paid an enor

Grape Syrup, Again.
Editor Express:—Noticing the
pleasure you take in advancing tbe
interests of our adopted borne, I
am emboldened to ask you to pub
lish the following letter descriptive
of the method and profits of grape
syrup manufacturing. I solicit its
publication in the hope that some
of our people may be induced to try
it, and show the grape-growers of
Southern California that their now
almost profitless vineyards can be
made valuable in producing an ar
ticle greatly in demand for food,
instead of contributing to a profit
less stream of fluid for the demor
alization of our fellow-men. A
very small Investment—it will be
seen by tho letter—would not only
enable us lo retain at home a large
amount of money now scut abroad
for treacle, but would give us a
large revenue from exports. The
market is all around us and at our
very doors, and we have au unlim
ited supply of the raw material to
work up. Who will start the
Pioneer Syrup Factory of Southern
California? Now for the letter:
K. It. H.

"B, R. Haines, Ksq , Lis Angeles,
"Dear Sir: Yours of the 22d
insl. was received, and in reference
to tho manufacture of grape syrup
I take pleasure iv communicating
tbe following Items: The apparatus
I use is a No. 4 evaporator, with a
portable furnace, manufactured by
the Blymeyer Manufacturing Co.,
Cincinnati, Ohio, costing-, deliv
ered in Sau Francisco, $103 iv cur
rency, with directions how to use
the same. A clarifying pan Is fur
ther needed to purify the juice after
it Is expressed from the grape,
which is done iii the following
manner: The pan is made of plan
ished copper, aud sets in a boiler
filled partially with water, which is
brought to a boil. After the juice
gets thoroughly heated, the acid is
cut with some slacked lime—say
about two pouuds of lime to 100
pounds of juice—about a gallon ol
slacked lime of the consistency of
cream. Let the juice remain In
tlie clarifyer for six hours, when it
will be found that all Impurities
have settled to the bottom. It
should then be drawn off carefully
aud put iv a tank placed close to
the evaporator, ready to oonvert
"It takes about three gallons of
juice to make one gallon of syrup.
One ton of grapes will yield about
130 gallons of juice, or about 42
gallons of syrup. A brisk fire is
ueedeil while boiling, and care
must he taken nut to let the juice
scorch while running oyer the
evaporator—a constant flow of
which is maintained.
"The syrup which 1 made last
Fail found ready market at 50
cents per gallon. I made 2,000
gallons of Mission grapes, paying
therefor from eight to ten dollars
per ton, and found it profitable. 1
don't know whether large quanti
ties cau he sold, as U is a new
thing aud takes time to introduce
"A wine press is also needed, a
crusher aud several tanks. The
pummace may be fermented ami
sold as inferior wine or else fed to
"In the October, 1876, number of
the Pacific Rural Press the manner
of manufacture, etc., was publish
ed, and parlies having that number
will find all needed Information, ou
"Hoping Hie above information
will be satisfactory, i remain,
"John O. Wbinbskoer." |
