Bull Run Incidents.
Iu the thickest of the contest a secession
colonel of cavalry was knocked ont of his sad
dla by a ball from one ot our riflemen. " There
goes Old Baker, of tho Georgia first I" shouted
one of our boys, in hearing of his chaplain.
" Who ?" queried the parson. " Colonel Baker,
of the rebel ranks, has goue to his long home."
"Ah, well," replied the chaplain, quietly, "the
longer I lire the less cause I have to find fault
with the inscrutable acts of Divine Providence."
An nnlucky private in one of the New York
regiments was wounded in this fight, and his
father arrived at tho hospital just as the surgeon
was removing the ball from the back ot his
shoulder. Tho boy lay with his face downward
on the pallet. " Ah, my poor son," said tho
father, mournfully, "I'm very sorry for you.
But it's a bad place to be hit in thus in the
back I" The sufferer turned over, bared his
breast, and pointing to the opening abovo the
arm-pit, exclaimed, " Father, here's where tho
ball went in.
One of the Zouaves was struck by a cannon
shot, which tore through his thigh, close to his
body, nearly severing the limb from the trunk.
As he fell, he drew his photograph from his
breast, and said to his nearest comrade, " Take
this to my wife. Tell her I died like a soldier,
faithfnl to my country's cause, and the good
old flag. Good byo I and ho died where he
An artillery man lay on the ground, nearly
exhausted from the loss of blood, and too weak
to get out of the way of the tramping troops
and horses that flitted about him. A mounted
horseman came toward him, when he raised
the bleeding stumps of both his arms, and cried
out, " Don't tread on me, captain I Seel both
hands arc gone." The trooper leaped over him,
a shell broke near by, and the crashing frag
ments put the sufferer quickly out of his
A rebel one of the Georgia regiment lay
with a fearful shot-wound in his aide, which
tore out several of his ribs. The life-blood of
the poor fellow was fast oozing out, when one
of our troops dashed forward from out of the
melee, and fell, sharply wounded, close beside
him. The Georgian recognized his uniform,
though bo was fatally hurt, and feebly held

said, " enemies. Let us die friends. Farewell I"
He spoke no more, but his companion in dis
aster took the extended hand, and escaped to
relate this touching fact.
One of our riflemen had his piece carried
, away by a ball, which struck it out of his hands
just as his company was in tho act of advanc
ing to storm one ot the smaller rebel batteries.
Unarmed, he sprang forward and threw him
self down on his face, under the enemy's guns.
A Zouave lay there, wounded and bleeding,
out of the way of the murderous fire. " Lay
close lay close, old boy," said the latter to
the new comer, "the boys'll take this ole fur
nace 'n a minnit, and then we'll git up an'
give the rebels fits ag'in." Three minutes
afterwards the battery was carried, and tho two
soldiers were in the thickest of the fight again.
Hair-Breadth Escape. Sergeant Nelson
Cole, of company C, second Vermont regiment,
from Brattleboro, gives a very interesting ac
count of hisexpenence in the vicissitudes of
war. A companion naa Deen Bnoi in me an
kle, shattering the bone, and Sergeant Cole
was assisting him to the hospital when the re
treat took plnce. Finding the enemy upon
them, his companion begged him to leave him
and take care of himself. Ho helped his com
rade into a sheltered place, and took to the
woods for safety.
Emerging from his Bhelter, after a long run,
he found himself in tho midst of the enemy,
who bred upon mm; leaping the lences, he ran
a couple of hundred yards through the open
ground, under a Bhower of balls, and again
succeeded in reaching the woods, but was sub
sequently discovered and captured. While on
their way to the Secesh camp they passed the
hospital, when Cole begged to be allowed to
get his coat. This was granted, and Colo sent
to get it.
Finding the rear unguarded, he passed through
the back window, and again took to the woods.
He succeeded in eluding his pursuers, and,
after a weary travel, found himself, nearly fam
ished, in the vicinity of a mill. An elderly
lady was the only person about, her son being
an officer in tho rebel army. She gave him
food, and a hat and pair of pants belonging to
her son. In this disguise, he passed for a Vir
ginian, and, although three times Btoppcd, suc
ceeded in reaching tho vicinity of Leesburg,
where he sought shelter for the night. The
people (females) professed themselves Union
people, and he told them his story. After re
tiring, he heard a conversation going on, and,
listening, discovered a plan maturing to send
for 6omo neighbors, and seize tho "Abolition
ist." He waited till all was quiet, when he
leaped from a second-story window, and made
his way to the Potomac, where ho found a ne
gro to row him across, and he came to the city
on the Maryland side.
Gen. Patterson Makes Another SrEEcn.
Geueral Patterson was serenaded at his resi
dence in Philadelphia on Wednesday evening,
and in acknowledging the compliment, took
occasion to mention his late military operations
on tho Potomac, as follows:
"I know that I have endeavored to do my
duty, and believe I have handled my column
as well as any other in the field. I have been
honorably discharged by my superior officer,
anu 11 uu ujuues uu i-uuipiaint, ana it tnoso
who served under me make none, what right
bavo others to constitute themselves a military
Btar chamber, to decide on my merits or de
merits as a soldier? I havo the great satisfac
tion of knowing that nil tho officers of the reg
ular army serving with mo npprovo of tho con
duct and management of tho army under my
command. These gentlemen aro competent
judges, and their approval I value more than
the nraises of all tho civilians iu the United
States. The army standard is tho true test of
the Boldier, and by that test. I am willing to
Stand or full."
The Government has uiada arrangements at
four manufactories to have sixty rifled cannon
turned out a week. With one lirm a contract
for three hundred has been made. General
McClellan relies upon artillery as tho priucipal
firm of tho service.
Liquor Drinking in England. A corres
pondent now In England has furnished some
valuable facts respecting the drinking habits
that prevail in that country:
By the Government returns for 18G0,
27,200,000 gallons of spirits were imported into
England the past year, or nearly one gallon to
every man, woman, and child in the kingdom,
yielding to the revenue the sum of about
$70,000,000 ; adding to this the duty on malt
wine, and excise licenses, the liquor revenue
for the past year was swelled to about
$105,000,000, or one tlfird more than the larg
est revenue of the United States. The entire
revenue of the British Government is about
(350,000,000, over two sevenths of which is de
rived from the duty on intoxicating drinks. As
the expenditures of the country increased, it
was found that the easiest way to raiso the in
creased amount which was required was tq. im
pose an additional tax on spirits.
About 44,000,000 bushels of grain are con
sumed annually in the manufacture of intoxi
cating liquors in the United Kingdom, which
may be estimated as equal to tho loss of an
entire crop once in four years. It is estimated
that not less than $300,000,000 is annually ex
pended in intoxicating drinks, ono third of
which comes from the poor aud working classes.
There are 10,256 public houses in London,
giving one for every 15C of the population
above fifteen years of age : adding the beer
shops and grog shops, and there aro about
19,000. in tue city proper, there are Que deal
ers in intoxicating liquors, or one to every 72
over fifteen years of ago. In Yorkshire there
is ono liquor seller to every one hundred and
three of the population, and, in Cumberland
and Westmoreland, one to every 93 over fifteen
years old. Ten years since there were, in
Great Britain, 105,278 dealers in intoxicating
drinks, while there were 85,913 grocers, C7,C91
butchers, 62,472 bakers, 45,385 drapers, 37,268
Cotton Cultivation in India. Govern
ment is at length fully resolved to develop
the cotton-growing capabilities of this coun
try. Each local government is to take meas
ures to have the lines of traffic between their
cotton-producing districts and the port of ship
ment, whether sea or river, examined and re
ported on by a competent officor. In the north
west tutu i-guuui mum iiuviui-t:a, uuuuii in, lur
the most part, a rate crop, those lands only
which are within reach of canal cultivation be
ing sown as early as April, and the export of
mo pruuucu goes uu uunug me com weatuer.
District officers have, therefore, been ordered
to report upon the stato of the roads through
the cotton-producing districts, and to adopt
measures for their being kept in good order
and repair. So George Russell Clark is enter
ing into the business with all tho zeal and ac
tivity which characterize his government.
Capt. Anderson, the assistant political agent
for Southern Mahratta country, has been order
ed to report upon the cotton growing capabili
ties of all the districts subject to his control.
As a London cotemporary says, " Tho hus
bandman of the Punjaub, the ryots of Bengal,
tho peasants of Southern India, and all the
dwellers on the Indus, the Irrawaddy and the
Ganges, have been stirred by the tidings of ap
proaching trade. A new world has been open
ed to Eastern commerce, aud a new stimulus
given to Eastern industry. The impulse has
been quite electric in its rapidity and force.
Not a minute has been lost iu making a dash
for the prize which tho Americans have allow
ed to slip through their fingers."' Bombay
An Old Exem- Returned. It is twenty
years or more since tho " grain worm," or wee
vil, as it is erroneously called, made its appear
ance in Northern New England. Gradually
but steadily it spread over the New England
States, and then travelling westward, through
new Aunt, r euuayivuum, unu utuer otates,
finally exhausted itself substantially in the great
Northwest. The movement of this enemy to
the farmers was very gradual, and the time re
quired for its migration from New England to
the Mississippi river was perhaps full fifteen
years; but we think it never proved as destruc
tive in tho Western as in the Eastern and
Middle States.
The rqvages of this insect were almost en
tirely confined to wheat; aud such was its de
structive agency upon this crop, that the grow
ing of wheat, both of the winter and spring
varieties was necessarily suspended for a few
years, until the scourge passed onward towards
the West. It disappeared each year on the
eastern border of tho infected district, in just
about the same proportion that it extended its
ravages westward.
Our exchanges, and other sources of informa
tion, lead us to apprehend that tho grain worm
is again becoming troublesome in the Eastern
States. In Now England, and in some locali
ties in New York on tho east aide of the Hud
son, thero uro occasional accounts of fields de
stroyed through its agency, and it would not be
strange if it should again lead to a suspension
of wheat-growing in considerable sections of
tins country.
ine enemy in question is ono which our
farmers are well acnuaintcd with, but which
they have never yet been able fully to dislodge
from their fields. Various expedients, such as
early varieties of winter and late Bowing of
spring wheat, have partially proveuted tho
threatened damage, but nothing has proved a
complete remedy for tho evil, N, Y. Jour.
Saratoga. Tho numbri of visitors at Sara
toga now is about ono third what it was at the
same date last year. The " United States," a
year ago, had six hundred guests ; it now has
two hundred. The patiorage of the other
principal public houses is about in the samo
firoportion. It is supposed that each of tho
argo hotels, instead ol making small fortunes,
as heretofore, have been steadily sinking money,
and will continue to do so to the end of the
Benson. But they aro admirably kept up ; and
their guests, from tho absence of all crowd, are
unusually comfortable.
Tho Troy JPia Bays :
It will bo inferred, perhaps, that the falling
off in visitors is " Southern." This is a mistake.
There are few Southern people there, it is true ;
but tho Southern visitors at Saratoga never ex
ceeded ten per cent, of the whole number.
Those who are missed are principally New
York and Philadeladelphia merchants, and
their families. The embarrassments of the
times press hard upon this class, and it is their
ooonomy to stay at homo.
Projectiles signify anything thrown or pro
jected. Shot and shell are the principal pro
jectiles used in cannon.
Hound Shot are solid spherical iron balls, ot
different weights, from two to more than a hun
dred pounds. The sizes most employed in bat
tle on the open field, weigh from four to twelve
pounds. The guns from which they .ire thrown
arc called light artillery. Heavy shot ore n-ed
in heavy artillery, for battering down fortifica
tions, kinking vessels, etc.
Bar Shot consists of two round shot joined
by a solid bar, like a dumb bell.
Chain Shot are two round shot linked togeth
er by a chain. These are used mostly for fir
ing nt vessels, to destroy their masts and rig
ging. Grape Shot are small iron balls bound to
gether in a canvas bag. They are usually ar
ranged around an Iron spike, somewhat in the
form of a bunch of grapes.
Canister or Case SJiot aro Iron bullets en
closed in a tin box or case.
The Common Shell or Bomb, is a large hol
low sphere of iron, filled with powder. A fuse
is attached, which takes fire and burns slowly
until the shell reaches tho point aimed at, and
then explodes the shell and scatters the lrag
ments. In the improved shell, the fuse is made
of powder ground fine, enclosed between two
metal plates, uud fitted to the opening in the
shell. The inner plate has an opening lending
to the powder within the shell, and the outer
one is marked with the figures 1, 2, 3, 4. Be
fore the gunner puts it into the cannon, he
pierces the plate atone of theso figures, nt 1 if
he desires the Bhell to explode in one secoud,
at 2 for two seconds, and so on.
Shrapnel or Spherical Case, are largo hol
low shot filled with lead bullets, to which a fuse
is attached. When fired, tho powder just
breaks the shell in the air, and tho bullets fly
on with tho impetus received from the powder
in the cannon, but scatter so as to cover a con
siderable space.
The Carcasse is a shell pierced with several
holes, and containing somo highly inflamable
ingredients, which are set on fire by the burn
ing fuse. It continues to send out flames for
Beveral miuutes, and is used for setting build
ings or ships on fire. Round shot aro some
times heated red-hot and Gred for the same pur
pose 1 and recently hollow, thin shells, filled
with meitea iron, nave neeu usea.
The Hand Grenade is a small thin shell fill
ed with balls and powder, and fitted with a fuse.
It is thrown by hand, tho fuse having first been
lighted. It is used to drive off attacking par
ties from a fort or vessel, to throw over breast
works, or into forts, and is a formidable wea
pon. The Way to Unmask Their Batteries.
We hear that the forests in Virginia where the
batteries are erected consist,in a great measure,
oftunted pine and cedar, with a thick under
growth, something liko the woods in New Jer
sey. If such be tho case, there seems to be a
very ready way of unmasking the rebel batte
ries, without much risk, before attacking them,
and that is to fire tho woods in the vicinity when
tho wind is favorable, which would not only un
cover their guns but would drive out the rebels.
In New Jersey, at this period of the year, even
with the trees green and luxuriant with foliage,
fires are frequent, particularly on the line of the
railroad, and cover over thousands of acres be
fore they are extinguished. Wherever masked
batteries are suspected in Virginia, as our
troops advance, the application of fire to the
forests would doubtless test, to a certainty, how
well these suspicions aro founded. Ledger.
Tho schooner Enchantress, beforo reported
as recaptured whilo in charge of a piratical
prize crew, has arrived in Philadelphia. This
vessel was saved by the negro cook. As the
gun-boat Albatross approached her, she " fought
shy," and when hailed, replied that she was
from Newburyport, bound to Santa Cruz." At
this moment the negro cook appeared on the
gunwale, crying out as ho leaped into the sea,
with uplifted bauds, "l'or Uod's sake, save
me ; Captain, she's a seccsher, bound to
Charleston." A boat v. as immediately lowered
to save tho negro and board tho brig. On
examining her papers, it was found that her
reply to the hail was true, but she was a prize
to the Jeff. Davis, and had a pruo crew 011
board. Her cargo is first class assorted goods,
suitable for tho Union army. The 'Jeff. Da
vis's crow behaved very badly with their prize,
destroying articks of tho cargo which they
could not use. Tho Enchantress is built upon
a, beautiful model, aud is probably worth

tined to become famous in this war. If our
men did run from Bull Run, we have now nn
offset in the fact that tho rebels, under Gene
ral Henry A. Wise, did also run from Bull's
town. So we now have Bull against Bull, and
