A FORGOTTEN HATTLaC.
BT 3. WARIXES KKirEE.
Concluded from ynterJsy
The Sixth Coip, under General Wright,
followed clcie after General Werley Mcmtl'a
cavalry corps and about 3 p. m., afier a
march ot eiKhteen miles, came up with it at
a print about two and ore-halt miles from
Sailor's Creek on the 1ft, and about the same
distance Iroui Ueatonvilie on the right, where
it was engaged with a strong force of the
enemy, which was covering his trains, then
moving rapidly on a country road toward
Uice's Station and Prince Kdward's Court
house. The Second Brigade of the Third
Division ol this corps went promptly into
action, and with scsnely a ball to complete a
formation lor bmle. it tonether with the
cavalry charged and diovc the enemy luck
aciws" the road, capturing many prisoners,
wagon trains and some arnllery.
The main boJv of the Confederate army
moving on this road had, however, passed by
toward Sailor's Creek. I'ursmt with such
troops as were up was promptly ordend b.r
General Sheridan and conducted by General
Hora'io G. Wright, who commanded the
Sixth Corps. The enemy's rear guard fought
stubbornly and fell lack toward the stream.
The Second Division of this corps, under
General Frank Wntaton, arrived and joined
the Third Division in the attack and pursuit.
The main body of the cavalry, under General
Slerritt, was dispatched to intercept the Con
federate retreat Mi-rritt passed East and
South ot the enemy across Sailor's Creek and
again attacked him on the right rear.
General R. S. Ewell was i" immediate
command of the Confederate forces engaged.
By about 5 p. m. the Contederate army was
forced across the valley of Sailor's Creek,
where it took up an unusually strong posi
tion on the heights immediately on the west
bank ol the stream. These heights, save on
their face, were mainly covered with forests.
There was a level bottom, wholly on the east
bank ol the creek, over which the Onion
forces would have to pass before reaching the
stream, then swollen beyond its banks by re
cent rains, and which washed the loot of the
heights on which General Ewell had rested
ihe divisions of bis army, ready fir an attack
if made, and with the hope that under cover
ot night the whole Confederate army might
escape in eafrty to D.inville.
TBI rLAS OF BATTLE.
The pursuing troops were halted on the
tace of the hills sktrtbg the valley, within
range ot the enemy's guns, and lines were
adjusted for an assault. ArtihVry was put in
position on these hills, and a heavy fire was
immediately opened. An effort was made to
get up General G W. Getty's First D.vision
of ttie Sixth Corp, and a portion of the Sec
ond Biigade ot the Third Division, which
had bten dtspatcbed to attack a battery on
the right, but the day was too far spent to
await their arrival. After but a few moments'
drlay, General Wright, as directed by Gen
eral Sheridan, ordered an iinmediite assault
to be made by the infantry, under cover of
the artillery fire. Colonel Sugg's brigade
of cavtlry was, at the same time, ordered
by General Sheridan to attack and,
it possible, flank the extreme right of the
enemy's position. General .Merrill's cavalry
divisions (First and Second) simultaneously
attacked the Confederate army on bis right
and rear. General Ewell covered his imme
diate tront with a strong and well-connected
line of infantry, massing a large reserve lorce
of infantry, in column, in rear of his centre,
to be uW as the exigencies of a battle might
require. His cavalry operated on bis right
flank and rear. He bad present on the field
at least three full infantry divisions, with
parts of others under the command cf Gener
als Kershaw, Custis, Lee, Barton, De Bnrre,
Corse and others ot the most distinguished ol
that army. Commodore John Randolph
Turker, commanding an independent "Marine
Brigade,'' held an important position in Gen
eral Ewell's line.
Without waiting for reserves to arrive in
sight, the two divisions of the Sixth Corps
descended into the valley and in single line
ot battle (Second division on the left and the
Third on the right) moved steadily across the
plain in the tace of the destructive fire of the
enemv, and, with shouldered guns, nud am
muulilun boxes also, in most cases, over the
shoulder, waded throngh the flooded
stream. Though the water was from two to
four feet deep, the stream was crossed with
out a halt or waver in the line. Many fell on
the plains and in the water, and those who
reached the west bank were in more or less
disorder. The order to storm the heights n at
promptly given by the officers atcompanying
lb iroops, and it was at once ob -yed. The
infantry of the Sixth Corps began firing for
the first time while ascending the heights and
when within only a few yards of the enemy.
His advance line gave way, and an easy vic
tury seemed about to be achieved by the
Union forces. But before the crest of the
heights wa reached General Eiwell's massed
troops, in heavy column, made au impetuous
charge upon and through the center o the
assaulting line. The Union center was com
pletely broken and a disastrous defeat for the
Ui ion army was imminent. This large bodv
of the Contederate iutantrv became, by rea
ton of this success, exposed to the now re
newed Ere trom Generd Wright's artillery
remaining in position on the hills East ot the
X TERRIBLE ELACCIIITER.
The right and lefi nings ot the charging
Union line met with belter success, and each
drove back all in its front, and, wholly dis
regarding the drfeat of the center, persisted
iu advancing, each wheeling as upon a pivot,
in the center of the line then htld by the
Contederate masses. The-e masses wtre soon
subjected to a tumble death-dealing infantry
file upon both flanks as wtll as b the artil
ery in tront. The swollen stream forbade a
Confederate advance to attack the unguarded
artillery. General Merrilt and Colonel Stagg's
cavalry, in a simultaucjus attack, overthrew
all before them on the right and rear. The
Confederate uflirers gallantly struggled to
avert disaster, and bravely tried to form
lines to the right and left to repel the galling
fUnk attacks. This latter proed im
possible. The troops on the flinks were
iu-b'd up to within. a tew feet ot the massed
Confederates, which rendered any reforma
tion or change of direction by them out ot
the question, and speedily brought hopeless
disorder. A few were bayoneted on each
side. The enemy were falling rapidly and
doing little execution themselves. Flight
was impossible, and nothing remained to put
an end to the bloody slaughter but for them
to throw down their aims and become cap
tives. As the gloom of apppaching night set
tled over the field, covered wuu dead and
dying, the fire of artjl.ery and musketry
ieaed, and General Eivell, together with
elerrn ot his general officers, and about all
his gallant army that survivtd, were pris
oners. Commodore Tucker and bis Marine
Brigade, numbering about 2,000, surrendered
to me a little later. They were under cover
of a dense forest, and bad ben passed by in
the first onset ot the assault.
Of the particular operations of the cavalry
the writer of thi, of his personal knowledge,
knows little; but no less praise is due it than
to the infantry. General Sheridan (May 10,
18C5), in an official report ot the battle,
speaking of the infantry attack, says: "It was
splendid, but no more than I had reason to
expect from the gallant Sixth Corp." He
al speaks of the fighting of the earalry and
the captures thus: "The cavalry in rear of
the enemy attacked simultaneously, and the
enemy, after a gallant resistance, were com
pleuly surrounded, and nearly all threw
down tl eir arms and surrendered. General
Ewell, commanding the enemy's forcts, a
number of other general officers and about
ten thousand oiher pnsonets, were taken by
us. Most of them fell into the hands of the
cavalry; but they are no more euti 1-d to
claim them than the Sixth Corps, to which
equal credit is due for the result ot this en
gagement." The overthrow of General Ewell's wing ot
General Lee's army forced him to move with
what retnaUed ot it Northward, and to the
North bank of the Appomatt x. From this
position be was unable to extricate himself
and the surrender at Appomattox Ciurtbou-i
followed. Theie was. after this but'Ie, some
fighting between the cavalry ot the two ar
mies, and between the Union cavalry and
Some of ihe Confederate infantry, but heavy
fighting between the Army of the Potomac

" I received your letter this evening, and
in reply would say that Peruna, I be
lieve, saved my life, and I can not recom

is the best medicine in existence. It
seems to help you as you swallow it. I
would advise any one suffering from my

accompany them. I was treated by a
number of doctors, all to no effect. I

thought my days would soon be over, but
last winter I received one of your pam

They helped me right away. I used nine
bottles of Peruna and three of Manalin;
and now I am quite well, and able to

which was attacked with a severe cramp
in the stomach; we thought it would go
into spasms. I used nothing but Peruna.
We gave it an injection of Perc.s'A and
warm water, and gave it a teaspoonful of
the medicine internally every half hour.
It was relieved in one hour, and has not
been bothered since. I have also used it
with as good effect in case of croup and

medicine, and recommend it to all who
are in poor health. The above statement
I am willing to swear to."

The present Emperor of Russia is
said to bo on5 of the strongest men in
his empire of hcrculanean individuals.
While the heir apparent, ho one day
visited his father, the late Emperor, to
complain that his mail was tampered
with. The Emperor sent for the chief
of police, drew from him a confession
of guilt, and eluded him in the pres
ence of the czarowitz. Tho latter said
not a word, but handed the crestfallen
functionary a sign of how great was his
anger in the form of a silver rotiblo
twisted into a roll. In his younger
days this was a favorite visiting card of
the czarowitz. He could strike a poker
tgainst his arm and bend it, bite pieces
out of ehina cups feats which were in
the repertoire of Thomas Tapham, tho
celebrity of Islington, London.
Tapham was a drayman, and some
times, when exhilarated by tho vast
portion of liquor given him" by admir
ers, he would take his horse's place be
tween tho shafts. He had a playful
habit of twisting heavy kitchen pokers
into a coil about the neck of trembling
countrymen. One night, after having
istonished a tavernfnl with his drink

of a burial ground.
In 1871, M. Gregorie, claiming to bo
71 years old. astonished tho physicians
and the public of a town near London
by carrying seven hundred pounds
ith ease, lifting an ov, and perform
ing' other wonderful feats. A celebrat
ed London physician who examined
Gregorie. describes him as an exagger
ated study by Harden. His shoulders
were prodigious, and his biceps almost
incredible. Gregorie's strength, rather
than a source of pride to him was tho
cause of anxiety. Although tho mild
est of men, he lived in dread that he
should be provoked to use his strength
against a fellow-being. He was afraid
to nur?e his own child lest ho should
give it a fatal squeeze.
Nearly all individuals of uncommon
strength make up in bulk what they
are deficient in height. Stanley, tho
African ux"plorcr, describes a strong
man who was six feet five inches, and
rather disproportionately slender. He
couid toss an ordinary man ten feet in
the air, and catch him in his descent.
He would take one of tho largo white
Muscat donkeys by the ears, and, with
a sudden movement of his right foot
lay the surprised ass on his back. Ho
could carry a 3-year old bullock half
way around his master's plantation.
Once he actually bore twelve men on
his back, .shoulders, and chest, a dis

people who remember
the dawn of interest in muscular exer

tor of tho idea which was subsequently
embodied in lifting machines. J he as
tonishment that the doctor's perform
ances created was equal to that of the
Ilerlincrs, a few years ago, at Jorg
nery's feats. The most wonderful of
these was known as the trapeze feat.
The Frenchman hung suspended by his
legs from a swinging bar, and. by sheer
muscular strength, lifted a heavy horse
ami its rider off the stage, suspending
them several minutes, and then letting

Mervine Thompson's achievement at
Uochester, N. Y., last year, was, how
ever, in the opinion of competent judg
es, more surprising than this. Thomp
son laid his face downward on
a firmly fixed ladder and re
sisted the ellbrts of a powerful
team of horses to pull him from that
position. A newspaper writer, in re
iewng this wonderful performance,
remarks that the little mention with
which it escaped could happen only iu
a nation where strong men were com
mon. The same feat, in 1670. gave William
Joy tho name of the English S.imson.
The medical men of Vienna thought
the strength of Josepii I'ospisehilli
worthy of discussion at several special
meetings. This man held a table stis
pended by his teeth while three gj psio"
danced upon it. He and ono of his
brothers boro upon their shoulders a
sort of wooden bridgo whilo a horse,
drawing a cartful of stones, was driven
over it. Pospischilli's strength was
thought to reside in his neck, and his
bones were said to be twice as largo as
the usual size.
Fishing parties and explorers in the
wilds of Northern Wisconsin were, a
few years ago, familiar with Peter Pan
piette, the Sampson of the region. He
was a famous woodsman, possessed of
mighty endurance, and muscles that
were like iron. Senator Clark says:
"I have had him bare his arm to mo
and crack hickory-nuts upon his mus
cle. It was like cracking them on a
stone. Ho could take a handful of
dried hard hickory-nuts and crush them
to pieces by merely tightening his fist."

Butter comes from tho cow in a liq

her confidence so that she will yield it

instincts, born in obscurity.
Her brow was low, but sho wore her
tail high, and sho was haughty oh. so
haughty. The young man who had
hitherto acquired the milk from this
cow desired ono evening to hie him

as ! had agreed, but failed. From tho

commonplace remark to her, I knew
our acquaintance would not lead to a
warm attachment. Somehow I felt con
strained and uneasy in her society from

Butter is produced by expunging the
juico from a raro and costly chemical
known as cream. Cream is bead on
the milk. Milk is known as dry and
extra dry. A good milkman will al

An old well-digger named Grady told
me about going over into southern In
diana at ono time to dig a well for a
man named Withum. Withum was said
to bo very close. He was tho most con
tigduous man in Indiana. His wife used
to skim the milk on one side and then
turn it over and skim tho bubbles off.
It was a constant struggle between
Withum and his wife to seo which
could be the meaner.
The first day that Grady was there
they had a round ball of butter about
as big as a lemon and as hard as Phar
aoh's heart The butter-knife had a
handle that would turn every time any
one tried to get a lick at the butter,
and tho littlo round ball would flop
over on the other side and smile. Now
and then a hired man would reach over
with his own kuife and make a slash at
it, but the butter, confident of its. own
strength, would tip over with a dull
thud, and tho man would heave a sigh
and give it up. Then anotherfarmhand
would make a dash at it, but burst in
to tears and quit Finally Grady, who
had watched this performance several
days, jabbed his fork dawn through tho
middle of the yellow chunk and suc
cessfully cut it in two. In the center
was a small wooden top. "There,"
says Grady, "IVo found out what the
blamed thing is wound on, anyhow."
Comicalities in Plants.
There is Jack-in-lhe-Pulpit;tho flower
of the plant known as Indian Turnip
(Arisoema triphyllum), who could ever
look at one of these singular blossoms
without that same stirring of tho risi
ble faculties which one experiences in
perusing a parody or caricature, or
witnessing a pantomime? The very
sight of one is provocative of mirth.
How many times in my school days did
I challenge the teacher's frown by in
voluntary giggles at the whimsical look
of tha imprisoned Jack!

The well-known Fly-trap, Diomca mus
cipula strikes the mind with all the
effect of a joke. Tho leaves of this
plant are" fringed with stiff bristles and
fold- together when certain hairs on
their upper surface aro touched, thus
seizing insects that light on them.
Seeing tho leaf stand tcuiptingly open
a poor fly pops in for shelter or food;
no sooner has it touched its feet than
some sensitive fibres aro affected, and
the cilia at the top closes in upon tho
intruder, imprisoning him as effectually
as if a boy had taken him and closed
him in a box.
Tho Fitcher-plant or Monkey-cap of
the East, although not particularly
Iudicrous has a whimsical arrangement
which borders closely upon the human
"conorny. To the footstalk of each leaf
of this plant, near the base, is attached
a kind of bag, shaped like a pitcher, of
the samo consistence and color as tho
leaf in tho earlier state of its growth,
but changing with ago to a reddish
purple. It is girt around with an ob
lique t anil or hoop, aud covered with a
lid neatly fitted, and movablo on a kind
of hinge or strong fiber, which, passing
over the handle, connects tho vessel
with the leaf. By the shrinking or con
tracting of this fiber tho lid is drawn
open whenever the weather is showery
or damp. When sufficient moisture
lias fallen and the pitcher saturated,
tho cover falls down so firmly that eva
poration cannot ensue. The water is
thus gradually absorbed through the
handle in the footstalk of tho leaf giv
ing sustenance and vigor to tho plant
As soon as the pitchers are exhausted,
the lids again open to admit whatever
moisture may fall; and when the plant
has produced its seed, and the dry sea

of vital interest to you."
"What's that?" was tho reply.

One of the interesting characters at
the St. Paul Depot last night was a
grizzly looking fellow, perhaps forty
j ears of age, who said ho was on his
way East from Idaho, where he had
been engaged in the cattle business.
"I threw it up this year," ho contin

"I thought that was a business that
couldn't be overdone," said a bystand

"In tho railway train a gentleman
who sat in front of me, learning that I
had constructed Foote's vessels, in

Cleveland, a brother of the Admiral.
Among other interesting matters, he
'elated an anecdote of ono of his littlo
daughters who was just learning to

the squadron was brought back to Cairo
for repairs, and. on tho Sunday follow

Cairo. Admiral Foote was a thorough
Christian gentleman and excellent im

egotist I should say it was a normal
condition. But, with you, so good and
generous, it is an anomaly, an evil that
must bo combated. Be certain that
life is badly arranged, painful, irritat
