Life bocomes very dear when you
have fought your way from Bull Run to
Petersburg from Belmont to Mobile.
To be shot by a rebel at Alexandria,
Vh. , in 1861, jg not at all like being
Bhot by your friends at Alexandria, La.,
I returned from Slireveport to New
Orleans after the surrender of Kirby
Smith's army all that was left of it
fust in time to be ordered by Sheridan
to report to Custer for duty with the
Second Cavalry division df the Military
Department of the Gulf. The orders
were to rendezvous at Alexandria, La.,
and after due preparation to march
across the country into Texas for the
purpose of re-establishing the authority
of the Government to follow up vic
tory with occupation.
Among the regiments ordered to re
port to the General there was the ill
fated Second Cavalry. It had suffered
somewhat from indifferent Held officers,
but more from that bad fortune which
overtook so many Western regiments
in the shape of garrison duty in small
squads or squadrons, so scattered as to
make each a sort of independent com
mand, which in the end resulted in a
loss of discipline and the ruin of those
bonds of sympathy that bound most
regiments firmly together. To lead
such a regiment into a hotly-contested
fight would be a blessing, and would
effectually set at rest all such trouble;
but their fighting had been altogether
of the guerrilla Kind, and there was no
regimental pride of character, simply
because there had been no regimental
deed of valor.
Two Colonels had resigned one to
accept promotion, and the other to re
turn home and a Lieutenant-Colonel
had failed to succeed to their spread
eagles; and the majority of the regi
ment would have rejoiced if, in his
wrathful disappointment, be had
thrown away his silver leaves and gone
home, too. But he never dreamed of
it. Whether justly or unjustly, he was
despised by his command; and only
held his place by sheer force of will,
backed by the authorities above him.
Such was the oondition of the regi
ment when it reported for duty. Tired
out with the long service, weary with
an unoomfortable journey by river
from Memphis, sweltering under a gulf
coast sun, under orders to go farther
and farther from home when the war
was over, and the one desire above all
others was to be mustered out and re
leased from a service that became irk'
some and baleful when a prospect of
crushing the enemy no longer existed
all these, added to the disaffection
among the officers, rendered the situa'
tion truly deplorable. In fact, the men
of the whole division were more or less
discontented, and would have been
troublesome under any commander and
any circumstances that kept them in
the service; but to be thoroughly or
ganized and subjected to the discipline
necessary to the maintenance of good
order, and to be forced to treat with
consideration the very people whose
country they had acquired a chronic
habit of devastating and that, too, by
a man whom they called a " yollow
haired circus-rider from the Slienan
doah " this seemed to them to be al
most beyond the limit of human endur
The command had hardly pitched
their tents and kindled their camp-fires
before the spirit ol reckless disregard
of authority began to manifest itself.
The men hated the commanding Gen
eral and staff "on principle," without
regard to what they did. " No Eastern
man can put on style over us!" "Bright
buttons and spurs don't make
soldier!" "It's too lute to teach us
Anur of the Potoruuo notions." "The
war is over; why don't they send us
home, instead of sending the up-start
Jlaior-Geuerul, with his Inst mustache,
to lord it over us?" These were such
speeches as one could hear at almost
any hour of the day or evening, when
wandering through the camp; and they
were delivered with such emphasis and
ill-suppressed bitterness that tho effect
was exceedingly ugly.
Immediately the men, singly and in
squads, began to goon extemporaneous
raids through the adjoining country,
robbing and plundering indiscriminate
ly in every unuui)uu.
They seemed to have no idea that
conquered and subdued people could
possibly nave any rigtiU that the con
querors were bound to respect. But
such expeditions could not be permit
ted; indeed, tne ueneral was under
orders to treat the people kindly and
considerately, and he obeyed orders
with the same punetiliousuess with
which he exacted obedience from his
command. Therefore, tho most rigor
ous and explicit orders wore issued
against " jay-hawking" of every kind,
and the offenders were severely pun
ished. But the ordinary punishments
were found to be utterly inadequate.
The guard-house, police-duty, extra
dutv. etc.. had lost their terrors; and
punishments bad to be devised that

The storm; which had been brewing
go many months in the rants 01 me sec

'olonel, had been largely

ficers whose names appeared on that
fatal list were deprived of their swords.
and the catastrophe was no longer to be
avoided. Blood was In the eyes of tho
soldiers, and none In the cheeks of the
officer vengeance was In the hearts
of tiie men, and fear in the souls of the
commanders. Triors was si quick roll
of the drum -a few explosive orders
a sudden rush a sort of dlr.zy whirl;
tho Lieutenant-Colonel narrowly es
caped, and. by a quick movement of the
guard, "a Sergeant and several men.
whose names were on the paper, were
arrested and lodged in the guard-house.
A double forne was posted to prevent
the rescue of the prisoners and the
immediate danger was over.
After the storm, the calm. Tho anx
iety of some men to get into trouble Is
only exceeded by their solicitude to get
out of it. It happened so with these.
The violent and headlong haste of the
action was eclipsed only by the reaction.
To tho sword less oflloers musing in their
separate tiit, and the imprisoned sol
diers discussing the affair between their
bars, there came, in due time, repent
ance and regret.
Through the clemency of the man
whom thny sought to destroy, there wan
at last afforded, on certain conditions,
the opportunity to erase their names
from that black muster-roll, and secure
restoration to duty. Some quickly.

themselves of tho absolution, except

He scorned forgiveness; it Implied an
acknowledgment of guilt. Ho would
stand by the deed; whatever the law
called it, he held it just resistance to

He had felt: "Wo cannot live togothoi ;
therefore, do thou go thy way, and I
will mine:" and he had simnlv said so.

So the law took him and tried him
before a general conrt-martial, found
him guilty, and sentenced him " to be
shot to death." The General approved
tne nnaing and sentence ol tne court.
and the day and hour of the execution
were fixed in an order that was read,
on a certain evening at dress-parade, to
each regiment of the division. And
1th the words ot that order a clonu
fell on the whole eommand.
The law was Inexorable, and the
court had no alternative. Being guilty,
this was tho punishment prescribed,
without that saving clause which puts
the offender at the mercy of the court
'or such other punishment as the court
may direct." But did he deserve
death? Not a man in all the command
believed it. The men knew it was the
letter of the law that was slaying him
but how to invoke its spirit, and
whether the spirit could save him if it
would, sorely puzzled them. They wore
satisfied that he should be punished,
but by something less severe and irrev
ocable than death.
With what crushing weight tho
thought came home to their hearts that
a good soldier, a true patriot, was to be
shot for a technicality, at the end of a
long war through which he had faith
fully served! . How they talked about
that lonesome, weary wife, and her
eager and expectant children, away at
the North, watching with bated breath
the opening ot the mail that was so
soon, if not to-day, to bring her the
news of the final discharge of the sec
ond cavalry! Who could hold a pen to
write this other news in its stead? Who
could send home to her the picture of
her own sweet face, with the curl of
baby's hair on the glass, as he had worn
it next his heart so many years, through
all danger by flood and field, and write
tho words: "This, with his undying
love, he bade me send you his last re
Did ever the reluctant days drag a
man to such hopeless, bootless doom?
If only he had fallen on some tierce
battle held, madly striking for his couir
try! If only he had been slain on the
picket Hues, piloting the grand old
army to victory! If he could have died
in the hospital, slowly wasted away by
incurable wounds or disease! If only in
any way his blood might nave been
reckoned as a part4f the price paid for

liberty and free government!
But no none of these. The very
record of his devotion to his country s
cause, and of his faithful years of untir
ing service, was to be blotted out. ills
memory was to be blackened forever,
and his name to become a legacy of
shame to his children; and yet they
knew he was conscious of no crime!
Was it possible to save him in any

The clavs of respite passed rapidly,
and tho anxiety aud sympathy for the

the invalid's bodside, and all mora or

covered. I onoe visited an invalid who
had ber bedside table supplied with

etc., the content of not one of which
could we see, all being covered with a
most amusing variety of glass and
porcelain lids. The invalid liked to
orget the contents of each, and was
amused to lift one or another of the
tiny covers and select a refreshment
which presented itself to her taste.
