H1OW ZICH CHANDLER FIT IN Te!u
WAIR.
It is not generally known that im
mediately after be had fired off his
mouth with such deadly effect. upon
poor SJidell, General Chandler or
dtered the unfinished Washington
monument to tie provisionel for a
siege, and proceeded to garrison the
Patent oince with a huge force of
male and female vc,luniteers from
Michigan. Then, haviing seenred his'
base of supplies, he took the field.-
lIe mounted a horse which hadl been
bought for the G ,vernment by the
celebrated Pcnnsylvinia firm, of
which General Simon Cameron, as
Secretary of War, was a silent part
ner, and armed ihimsglf with a Spen
cer ruifle, mannfactured by lilaine in
his capacity of "on dead head." Ile
drew-on a pairof military boots made
by a firm in Massachusetts, under a
contract procured by the late Henry
Wilson in his capacity of philan
thropic chairman of the Senate Mili
tary committee. His noble head was1
covered with a cap made by the lion.
Thomas Murphy, of New York, sub
sequently friend of.Grant and Col
lector of the Port. The rest of his
uniform was supplied by a firm in
Manchester, N. II., under a contract
procurod at the reasonable' figure of
twenty per cent, of the profits by a
loyal Senator from that State; and
be strapped upon the cantle of his
saddle three days' forage supplied
by some particular personal associ
ates of the4o6ni: Reuben E, Fenton,
of New Xqrk.! Ile also took three
days' rations of hard tack supplied
by some intimate frienda Of the l on.
A. G. ~tittel, of New Jersey, and the
same of salt pork .from some espe
cial constituents of the Hon. B. F.
Wade in Cincinnati. Then comple
ting hiseiqui~ment. with a ~1ibvel to
dig the ,av qo d geand, from the
manUKo o flMfzse late Oakes Ames,
General Chandler took the field, as I
understand it, with Colonel Carroll
as his pfptatl Fromo that time
ustil t presbt moment.Gen. (han.
dler s nevter slept. iHts life for
eighteen years. has been one constant
battleJie has led one hund~red and
eighteen forlorn hopes, charged the
imminent deadly breach four buni
dred and forty-four times, formed a
square tepp)seseavalry on three
bondqd sndr 'edh tee6 o eastlhs,
when the fate of the nation hung (
trembling in the balance, and- has
won pot leea than eight hundred E
pitched battles, to say nothing of
some thousand skirmishes. He has
literally been. shot to pieces. You
wouldii't think it to'iodk at him; hibt
really4Stey.is 'sot more than three
or four ounces of the original Gene- ti
ral Chandler now left for the ap
plause of his gountryuaen. As for .
the cI ' hipb lie tok paloqg to
dig g1aves for his dead, it was worn
out early In tle action:; in. fact Gen,
eral Chandler used up shovels for
this purpose so rapidly that Oakes
Amesu rho lbed thea excusive con
tract or makiing them, amassed an
immense fortune-made so mucht
money that be was subsequently
able to buy a whole Republican c
Congress, inclading Garfleld.--[A.

maansof heavy hon balls, which fall
upon the arms of the Wheel, causing
it to revolve. These balls are car

of a 3igr;- mastaed in ia ylinder, in

which runs them exactly to thie arms vs

just as the warmts is at an angle of
