Another man who is somewhat garrn

from 1S79 at 10 per cent. I hope to pay
it as eoon as I get my pension and ar
rears of same. In fact I would not have
mortgaged bnt with the hope of raising
the money long ago by that means. All
mortgages are given, I think, with some
thing in view which is expected to wipe

"It was like this: In tho fall of I
was n kind of assistant commissary, and
we had been on a forced march for two
days trying to draw the attention of the
enemy from the main column, and suc

popular m Ith tho southern soldiery. We

had improved the time by securing much

"That night the liquor was stored in
an old tobacco barn that stood on a side
hill, and tho commissary took charge of
it. Pardon my going into detail this
way, but when I see a bnrean jnst pant
ing for private information I like to load
it up, and only wish that the American
people wonld join me in this praise
"The liquor was extreinely rocky, I
guess; but that's neither here nor there.
The silence of night gathered about the
sleeping encampment, and tired nature
soon yielded to overpowering fatigue.
All w:ts silence along the misty line of
slumliering forms, wive the near by
crunching nnd grinding of provender by
the jaded horses or the distant report as
some faithfnl picket discliarged his duty.
"Then all was silent again.
"Anon the day breaks, and with it a
wild, mellow howl from Company O,
known as the Sparkling-and-bright-in-its-liqnid-light
company; also the tee
totliTs. This was calculated to be sar
castic, because they had painted every
southern state a bright red barring
Texas, and that wan too big for their
stock, so they run out of paint.
"Well, these fellers were all extremely
full, and they went on to state that they
were glad of it. They had been heard
to sjieak disparagingly of the reliellion
several times, and to say also that if they
were home again they wonld be almost
willing to let the colored man break his
own fetlocks in such style as he might
deem projier. They said a great many
things alMint tho inconvenience of being
chased and shot at for two days rnnning
by an infnriabtl foe at $13 per month
and find one's self.
"Later on wo ascertained that the
liquor had been secured by incendiaries,
who had stolen two barrels ont of three,
and almost out from nnder onr noses.
This very naturally infuriated our offi
cers, who liad hail only one or two big
drinks out of it so far, preferring to wait
a day or two in order that it would have
more age. I t;isted of it myself once, so
1 was told by friends who held my head
all the day afterward. I couldn't help
thinking at tho time that if this sort of
liquor was general in tho south, piracy,
treason nnd the use of cuspidors in the
sanctuary ought not to be looked upon so
severely as they would where a less
malignant style of rum was in general
"Well, to mako a long story short. Mr.
Census Bnrro, 1 was selected to guard
the remaining barrel that night. I put
it up on a trestle, locked the diors and
laid down alongside the trestle in my
blankets and waited for day. I kept
awake for probably an hour, thongh it
seemed to me like a year. Then the
crickets sounded further and further
away, and tliat was all. for I was tired.
Oh, sir, I was indeed very tired. I
wasn't doing regular retard dnty. recol
lect, Burro, but sort of cI;vnfer police
"Along alxmt 1 o'clock, I should say,
I was wok up by a sharp pain in my
person, and with a shriek of agi ny which
was heard distinctly by loyal neighbors
of mine in, Montreal, who said that it re
minded them of the shriek made by Free
dom at the time when Kosciusko fell, 1
stood in the middle of the floor wrapped
in my own sad thoughts and an army
shirt which did not extend to the close
of the war by any means.
"As I darted away from what seemed
to lie the sting of an overgrown hornet,
such as one might run across while ram
bling throngh Satan's preserves. I saw in
the uncertain light the retreating bit of
a two-inch auger. Then I could make
out dimly a largo collection of auger
holes distributed around over the floor,
evidently in a vain search for spirits, and
below I heard the footfall of escaping
soldiery ns they fell over each other iu
their efforts to escape.
"The whisky was saved, and in one of
the battles which occurred soon after
ward I think it won us tho day, for onr
colonel was so ill natnred because of the

tho whole matter as mirth provoking.

not at all frivolous give themselves up

"One man I'll never forget his kind

auger when it struck me. He gave the
date and everyining, all the circum
stances regarding the case, and said that
after midnight they had invested some
two thousand nuger holes in the floor
and extended them into the atmosphere
alwve, when he was called upon to act.
He said he took the anger with a heavy
heart, but made a last appeal, hoping to
bore into the barrel and fill a washtnh

eyed boys, who had lieen whooping of it
np the night before and so pined now
for something to moisten their months,

those abnnt him, ' My Qodl we have

"After such testimony as this I thought
I would only have' to establish my own
identity, and assert on oath that my vi

ny moment to fall ont and be appropri

commissioner of pensions, who replied
in a flippant way, referring me to the
Durean ox vital statistics, and stating
that a friend of his had jnst perfected an
awning to be worn over such apertures
to keep the works of those who had been
bored into fa that way from getting
freckles on them.
"So 1 have mortgaged my place, think

alea. Sunday's Union said that one of Mr.
Cable's trusted lieutenants said on Satur
day in the presence of Mr. Cable himself
that the latter gentleman was against the
back pay bill, the eight-hour law and the
Hennepin canal, and that Mr. Cable did
not deny it In this matter it will be no
news to the community to learn that the
Union lies. It is not the most courteous
language to use to a contemporary, but
that paper seems incapable of under
standing any other form of phraseology.
At the time mentioned Mr. Cable and
Mr. Wm. McEniry the latter is the
trusted lieutenant referred to were talk
ing on the sidewalk together upon other
matters than those of which the Union
spoke. The reporter of that paper ap
proached and made himself one of the
company. McEniry said to him that he
did not think it fair that a newspaper
should publish anonymous letters charg
ing men with certain acts or opinions that
bad do foundation io truth, thus prevent
ing the accused from taking Io task those
who might make the accusation. When
such men, McEniry said, charge Mr Cable
with being against tho Hennepin canal
and the eight-hour law or the b'ick-.pay
bill both of these latter subjects were
not mentioned, hut one of them was and
do not sign their names it gives him no
opportunity of dealing with the author as
they should he dealt with. This report
ter then writes that Mr. Cable is opposed
to these measures. What is the use of
discussing with such men? Or would
the office in which he is employed not
permit him to tell the truth, or did he
wilfully manufacture the lie himself? It
eannot be said that he dare not deny what
is here Hated, for a man who will employ
such methods woul i dare anything hut
the truth. Still it would be interesting
to know whether be thought it worth
while to vindicate whatever remnant of a
