of the numerous things that vcr to
beseen. The first thing of interest
is tho "Battle of the Crater" (July
UOlh, 1861) The mine of powder, of
which so much is expected, is ex
ploded and throws the earthwork,
men, guns and accoutrements in the

is repulsed with great slaughter ; t lie
survivors arc driven back to the
shi'lter of their works ; the mine has
failed of its purpose : Lee holds his
ground and all is again quiet, save
from the moans of the wounded and
the occasional "crack"' of the sharp
shooters' rille. Lee and his army
must bo worn out starved out;
they cannot bo overcome otherwise.
A pleasant voice near us brings
our thoughts back from tho pastand
we mentally exclaim: "How time
