creation of the Army of the Potomac.

federate cavalry appeared, and the
fight was resumed. The Federal ar
tillery now came Into action. As the
shells fell among the southern horse
men, killing several, the whole body
was thrown Into disorder and soon
afterward fled. This ended the battle.

Federals made a vain pursuit of their
foes and on Aug. 4 returned to Spring

killed and thirty wounded In the fight
at Dug Springs and General Bains
about forty killed and as many wound

courage General McCulloch from mak
ing a direct attack on Springfield, but
General Price Insisted and even pro
posed to withdraw his Missouri troops
and fight it out alone. At this junc
ture an order came from General Leon

directing that the attack be made, and
McCulloch consented, provided he was
given chief command. The entire
Confederate force now moved forward
in three columns toward Wilson's
creek. As the battle at that point did

McClellan came Into conflict with Gen
eral Scott almost from the first. Mc
Clellan himself recounts bow, on his
second day at the capital, be called on
the president and was invited to at
tend a cabinet meeting in the after
noon. After leaving the president he
called on General Scott and after an
extended conversation excused him
self, saying he had been invited to at
tend a meeting of the cabinet. Scott
thereupon grew indignant that a sub
ordinate fiicer should have been
shown such an honor and the general
In chief not included and ordered Mc
Clellan to employ bis time picking up
stragglers about Washington. McClel
lan afterward explained to Mr. Lin
coln why he did not attend the cabinet
meeting, at which the president seem
The differences between the two gen
erals Involved a much more serious mat
ter than social precedence, however.
McCleilan's plan of organization con
templated brigades, divisions, corps
and armies. He objected to the old
geographical divisions. In all except
the brigade formations Scott opposed
him. The general In chief insisted
that the geographical divisions were
necessary- He also said that be had
only brigade organization in Mexico
and implied that what was good
enough there was good enough in the
war between the states. IcClellau re

north that which they most needed la
the beginning of the war-Hn efficient
and adequate form of military organi

Europe. Yet he com Id not have learn
ed It all there. His type of mind was
distinctly that of the engineer and or
ganizer. At this time McClellan was univer

pline the soldiers about Washington
had already begun to call him "Little
Mac" and to look upon him as anoth

too much of himself and was given
to belittling others. To read his book

er faults. Yet after discounting these
personal defects In his character one
must admire the man's ability in the
creation and disciplining of armies. I
think history will decide that he was
the one man needed at this juncture.
Things do not happen by accident, ei
ther to individuals or nations. With
a great need comes the man or men
to fill it. Whatever we may thinU of
him as a man or as a soldier, George
B. McClellan was needed in 1861.
Call It providence or what you will,
one cannot read history understand
ingly without being struck by the
larger Intelligence that Is behind the
shaping of events. We call tbing3 of
this kind coincidences, but that Is only
a term behind which we hide our Ig
norance. However men may scheme
and seek special ends, however blind
or self willed they may be, this larger
intelligence goes on shaping the trend
of things. No man of insight can fol
low the story of our own land, can
read the annals of the Revolution and
of the civil war, without seeing ia
them the expression of what Emerson
calls the "oversoul," without tracing
through them the finger of God.

It may be objected that all this has
little to do with a story of the war
fifty years ago, but in my own view it
had and has a great deal to do.
One of the laws procured by Gen
eral McClellan in the early days of
August was that authorizing the ap
pointment of additional aids-de-camp
to general officers. These aids might
be taken either from civil life or from
the army, and none of them was to
rank higher than colonel. It was not
till a few weeks later that the order
was given to form the Army of the
Potomac, but when It came it was on
j the lines laid down by McClellan.
j Extra Session Adjourns.
j The extra session of congress was
1 now drawing to a close. On Aug. 5,
the day before final adjournment, the
two houses by joint resolution called
upon the president to "recommend a
day of public humiliation, prayer and
fasting, to be observed by the people of
the United States with religious solem
nity, aud the offering of fervent sur
plications to Almighty God for the
safety and welfare of these states, his
blessings on their arms and a speedy

PLAN EXHAUSTIVE TESTS
Will Shoot "Dimnite" Shells a Dis
tance of Fifteen Miles and Bring
Down Air Craft.
The United States government is
the owner of the most powerful quick
firing long range aerial gun in the
world and one which it is declared
will prevent the swiftest and most
highly perfected aeroplane or dirigible
balloon from getting near enough to
New York to even make observations.
No hostile aerial fleet could get within
twelve miles of New York without be
coming a perfect target and being
sent to the earth in bits, so it is as
serted. The gun is the recent perfection of
the aerial gun invented by army ord
nance officers under the direction of
Brigadier General William Crozler,
chief of ordnance. It has been given
to the government gratis and is not
patented. It is a weapon far superior
to any aerial gun yet buiit, according
to ordnance and aeronautical experts.
With it has been perfected a tracer
shell charged with a high explosive.
The gun is a six pounder with a cal
iber of 2.3a Its weight Is 047 pounds,
and it is mobile. It is equipped with
a modern breech block mechanism in
vented by the ordnance corps. At
fortifications it will be mounted on a
carriage like that used for all six
pounders. The only difference will be
in the latch or hinge by which the
gun Is attached to the carriage. This
hinge will be so arranged aa to permit
the firing of the gun from horizontal,
or zero, to a vertical or ninety degree
angle. It can be swung from zero to
zero, completing a full half circle.
TRACER OF COLORED GAS.
For field service the gun will be
mounted on a carriage similar to that
used by the field artillery. In this
case also it will be so mounted as to
pexniit its being elevated to any angle
from horizontal to vertical.
The shell used in this gun is a com
bination of the best tracer shells used
by England. France, (Jermany and
Austria, with a few Yankee improve
ments. Its weight Is six pounds.
The tracer is of colored gas. ignited
from the firing piu of the gun. It
is charged with smokeless powder and
"dunuite." The velocity of the pro
jectile is 2.400 feet per second. The
velocity is so great and the shell so
hard that the latter will penetrate
three inches of Ilarveyized steel at its
maximum range, between twelve and
"To show what guns of this type
would do If used in the forts about
New York against an enemy's air
ships," said an ordnance expert, "pic

through a pair of fieldglasses and see
these mechanical birds at a height of
10.000 feet and a distance of ten miles,
flying in a flock toward Sandy Hook
or the upper part of New York city.
Then glance toward the forts in aud
about New York and see a burst of
flame and a hundred of these projec
tiles with little tails of smoke trailing
them go plunging through space for
the air fleet.
"There is a cloud of smoke, then a
flash of flame. In an instant frag
ments of aeroplanes are dropping to
earth or sea. Nothing a minute after
ward remains In the air except a hazi
ness. One round from these 100 guns
has sent 120 men to eternity and ?100.

enemy's aeroplanes from getting near

gun would be as serviceable, as the
present field or light artillery gun.
Some tests of the gun have been
made, and they were pronounced most
successful. The lg test, however, will
be made at Sandy Hook some time In
August. For the test free and captlvo

THE GRAIN MARKET.
Liverpool, Aug. 9. Notwithstanding
the lower cables trom America yester
day and weakness in Buenos Ayres,
the market opened unchanged with a
firm undertone and shorts excited.
The lower cables were offset by the
strike situation and the general tight-j
cning up of European offers, together
with apprehension regarding the Rus
sian situation. Later there was a sen
sational covering movement on th'i
part of belated shorts, and prices ad
vanced sharply. The Oglivie Flour
Milling company of Montreal cabled
that fears were entertained there re
garding frobt owing to the lateness of
the crop, and alBO fears that black
rust would spread. London was a
heavy buyer of future-s In this market
