Sept. 13, 1802. Flags flying at half
mast yesterday and to-day at this
point Helena, Ark. Left Helena
at 4:30 p. m. Ten miles below we
passed Delta, Miss., a deserted vil
lage. Friar's Point, fifteen miles
below, is a very pretty village and
the county seat or Uahoma county.
Just below here we passed a ferry
boat, guarded by a gunboat, receiv
ing cotton from the Arkansas shore.
Twenty miles below Helena is a
camp of Federals some two or three
thousand strontr, on the Arkansas
shore. At Helena a- Union man
from Alabama, and the secretary to
the military governor of Arkansas,
came to our boat in a skill and was
cursed and thrown at with crackers
by our men. At eleven o'clock we
tied up for the nitfht.
Sept. 14. Started early this morn
ing and passed the White river at
eight o'clock. Just above Napoleon
is the Arkansas line.. This place
seemed to he almost deserted.
Nearly every house In it was closed
and there was a small deserted vil
lage on the opposite bank. Below
here we passed several villages and
a gunboat stealing negroes under a
flag of truce. To-night we anchor
with upward bound boats that took
down the first lot of prisoners.
Sept. 15. Ninety miles to Vicks
burg. These returning boats have
but few Yankees and they are steal
ing negroes and everything they
want under the flag of truce. All
have negroes aboard. A negro
came tJ the bank last night and
hollowed to the Yanks to come
after him. The negroes all up and
down the river have the signal for
stopping boats. They also bring
horses and mules with them. We
saw a negro this morning signaling
a boat to take him on when we com
menced, shouting, "Shoot him!
"Catch him!" He took to the
bushes in a hurry.
We started this morning at ten
o'clock. At twelve we passed Lake
Providence. Below here we saw
over a hundred negroes and not a
white man among them. Here our
boat touched bottom and careened
to one side, frightening some on
board. An officer fell overboard
this morning, but was picked uo by
a skitf. Last night some of the
Rebels went down in the hold and
got a keg of lager beer, got up a bi
row and run the sentinel up stairs.
Sept. 10. Seven months ago this
morning since we were surrendered
and we are now lying at anchor lust
above Vicksburg, waiting the slow
process of the military authorities
We arrived here iu.it at dark last
night. Nine of our number have
been buried on the banks of the
river between here and Cairo, just
wrapped In a blanket and covered
in the sand.
Cloud and raining this morning
Shipped aboard the Paul Jones and
breathe the free air of Dixie once
more. What joy to me to think that
I am relieved of the hated presence
of the Yankee once more! Now I
can meet the Hessians on an equal
footing! Landed at the beautiful
city of Vicksburg, which has so far
nobly withstood the bombardment
of the enemy's fleet. We waded
through mua and rain to the Wash
ington hotel, which was crowded to
overflowing. We finally found shel
ter under the roof of Mr. Wilson, a
kind and affable gentleman.
Sept. 17. Vicksburg has suffered
considerably. Nearly every build
ing shows signs of the bombardment.
The price of everything is enormons.
Hoard is four dollars a day. Shirts
are from six to eight dollars. To
bacco is one dollar and a half a plug
watermelons from one to three dol
lars; suspenders from four to seven
dollars; apples ten cents apiece.
The prisoners are coming in slowly
frou. our fleet. This evening Capt.
Gordon was moved up to the resi
dence of Mr. Wilson, where every
kindness was shown him. He was
taken sick coming down from
Sept. 18. We procured boarding
to-day at a Mr. Martin's. It is dif
ficultvery difficult to get any
place to stay.
Capt. Gordon, our brother soldier
and fellow prisoner, breathed his
last this evening just after four
o'clock. He dropped oil as gently
as one falling asleep. Our associa
tion with him on the tented field
and in a military prison revealed to
us more fully the estimable qual
ities of his heart and soul. He was
a consistent member of the Presby
terian church, an unyielding
Southern-rights man and a gentle
man iu every sense of the word.
His fatherly care of the younger
members of his regiment and mess
rendered all attached to him, and
we were deeply grieved at the loss.
Sept. 19. Capt. Gordon was buried
to-day in the lot of Victor F. Wilson,
Rev. E. 11. Rutherford officiating in
the burial service J. Q. Arnold,
sexton. We could not procure a
metallic case nor charcoal.
This place is nearer played out
than any place I ever saw. Every
thing commands fabulous prices:
Smoking tobacco, one dollar a
pound; roasting ears, two dollars
per dozen; sweet potatoes four dol
lars per bnshel. The fare I very

Typographical arrors sometimes
cause really serious trouble and
annoyance. On other occasions
they are simply amusing. Some
years ago an advertisement of a
political meeting was inserted in a
Philadelphia paper. The advertise
ment was intended to announce
that a. well known leader would ad
dress "the masses" that evening.
Owing to the misplacement of a
"space," however, the public of Phil
adelphia was informed that the ad
dress would be delivered to "them
asses at National Hall." A re
ligious paper called the Gospel Ban
ner, which is published at Augusta,
Maine, once attracted attention
through the prank of a printer, who
transposed two words of its motto,
so that it read : Iu the name of our
God we will up set our banner."
The omission of a comma was the
cause of a suit for libel brought
against a Western newspaper by the
inventor of a patent medicine. A
testimonial to the worth of his com
pound was inserted in the paper and
read as follows: "I now find my
self completely cured, after being
brought to the very gates of death
by having taken only five bottles of
your medicine." The comma which
should have come after the word
"death," was unnoticed by the com
positor. Youth's Companion.
