BATTLE 01 THE ORATER.

Carolina Coiinand in that Fearfnll
By request of his comrades Capt. U
C. Halo, of Camden, has given the fol.
lowing account of the battle of the
Crator on the 30th of July, 1864. At
that timo ho was leirat LIoutenant of
Company A, 23rd Ieglment S. C. V.,
commanded by Col. H. L. Benbow,
Eltliott's Brigade, Bushrod Johnson's
On the day previous to the explosion
we occupied that portion of the line
which was blown up, at a four gun
battery situatcd ol an elevation, at an
angle of the breatworks said to be the
nearest point to the enemy's lines.
Wo moved to the right the day beforo
j ust far enough to make roomtI for
another Regiment, 22d S. C. V., Col.
Vieming, which occupied the ground
that was blown up. Capt. Shedd, of
l"airlicld, one of the ollcers or the 22d
Rlegimnent, that wias blown ip, occupied

renldering all tho assistance hto could,
having lost, his comlpany inl thu explos
ion. Adjutant lleming of the samto
rcgimer.t., also rendered good service,
who was a brother of the Col., who was
buried in the explosion.
About dawn of the 30th of .Luly tile
explosion occurred, blowing up the
battery and the greator portiotn of the
2:'d lhegimnent. throwing 0one or two
of the canons over in front of our line
--about Iifty feet. The . guns were
brought back and iounted again.
This was accomplishe(d by means of a
wi ndlass and ropes over a covered
zigzag courso Which was dug for the
i1l11ose, and bo cotstructed for con
cealment and protect.ion from the
eletiy's lire. A t ie ti te of tho ex
ilosion I Iad ju)st5 stai'ted ol tO) get

shooters, wiho had nealty exhate3d
the suppIly. The enemy was prepared
to make a charge immtnediately after
the explosion during th .i excitemlcnt
ald confusion c'cated therehy. We
i miul iately formed line of battle and
held the enemy in check. As thiey
atteiptedl to c'oss the line at the
crat'er we poured volley after volley
into teir r anks and drove them back
into the pit, or crater, which was a
protection to them for the time, but
when our line of morters in the Iar
of our position opelcd oil them, throw
ing shells over us into the crater, they
w ele aLw fully slaughtered. They were
held in check until late in the after
noon. Our regiment leaving no field
ollicers for duty on that day, Capt.
Rufus White, of Charleston, was in
command. lic was wounded early in the
early part, of the battle. Licut. Stone,
of C iester, was next in comtimand. lo
was also wounded. The command of
the regiment then devolved on me, I
beintg the tnext ratnk irg ollicer. I iin
metdhiately ordered a charge, as we
were exposed to a cross fire front and
lank. At that juncture, we were re.
inforced by Gen. Mahono's Division
just in ti me to make a simultaneous
charge. We charged on the crater' on
the right; .ltahone on the left, wherc
the enemy had entered our lines. We,
the 2:'d iegiment, lost heavily, in
eluding three color bearers. The next
(ay hostilities were suspended b
mutual consent for several hout's, ii

The two armies formed line in f ront o

declared for silver, and while cvery

piublican walkover, the writer met ex
Congiressman George D). Tillmnan of
South Carolina, and asked for his
views on the situation. lie said that

and he (lid not care to talk for publ ica

pirivate conver-sation, however, in the
course of which Mr. Tilliman made this
remarkable statement :"What Ale

the demanud that is going up from the
pe-ople for the restoration of silvei
coinage cannot be resisted ; it is a rev
olution, that will sweep everything
biefore it." The writer responded that
he believed that would be the result
when the revolution came, but lie
feared it was further in the future.
"No, sir, it is here already, an]l you
will see when the State conventions
are held that silver wili sweep the
country likce a prarie flire; It is a ie
volution, moy friend, and the people
are tripe for it. Th'le next President

There was a rumor here today that
Spain had decided to execute thei
Competitor prisoners and that the
President had prepared a message to
Congress on the subject, which wouild
lead to a declaration of wai' Thiit:
rumor could not be confirimed and
later it was pronounced a New York

be a ring in the stock exchange which is

This man says the Now York clear

coinage platform at Chicago. le is
quoted aS saying that every delegate
already olected is known by the men
in charge of this work in New York
and that Cvery man who can be chang

lie further declares that every note

Asa niatter of fact the gold men th:nk
that a D.mocratic candidate on a free
coinage platform can be elceted, and
they propose to provent the adoption
of such a piatform if thEy can. But
they cannot. The people are electing
delugante..s to that convention who can
not be bought.
William P. St. John, presidont of
the Moreantile National bank, of New,

selection for vice president by the
Chicago convention. St. John is a
Democurat, and is the only bank presi

talkod of for vice president is John
