'WhatiOur Veterans Have to Say About
Their Old Campaigns.
The Artillery Duel at AHtietea.
To the EniTon: After reading tho article
in your issue of Juue 19, by Comrade W. .
"Webster, of Cowan's battery, It occurred to aie
that I was lucre, too. It brought to mind many
events and scones that occurred in the very
short space of time immediately following
Sedgwick's repulse, (if yoa choose to call it
gueli). Our brigade tHaucock's) came in on the
double-quick 4is Sedgwick's division was falling
back. We were composed of the 6th Me., 5th
"Wis.. 43d N.Y., and 4Sth Pa. It was a fearfully
hot day, and we had been running all the morn
ing to get on the field, and as wecmo up upon
the double-quick through a piece of timber, to
the east of the com field, by the right flank, we
saw abundant evidence of the rout or disaster
of Sedgwick's division. The broods and fields
"were full of stragglers and wounded men. Can
non fchot and shell were flying in all directions.
It seemed as though the air wa3 alive with
missiles of destruction. Gen. Sumner came
riding up, bare beaded, his long, white hair
streaming xu the wind, his tall form erect, and
gave some orders in a clear, distinct voice. Onr
brigade formed quickly into iiue and advanced
to the 'edge of the cornfield and laid down,
where the ground fell off considerably, o that
we were jiaitially covered, expecting every
moment lo be ordered to charge. As wo came
cut of the field we passed a battery on our im
mediate right in position, and " bellowing like
mad." It was, I am quite sure, Capt. Frank's
N. Y. battery; I think they were 5-iuch Na
poleon guns. The cannoneers, many of them,
weie working with their sleeves rolled up, and
some of them bare to the-skin to their waist,
jmd wore black and grim with powder and
smoko. The guns were vomiting forth grape
and canister, double shotted at every discharge,
&nd ikirly Jeaped from their position at every
shot. Thty were making a perfect hell of
every inch of ground in front and on either
flank. I never witnessed such rapid firing or
saw guns worked as they were. Capt. Frank
"was xidmg buck and forth calling for supports
for -his balicry, for, as wo came up, his battery
was wholly unsupported. In our immediate
front-tbogrouna was literally covered with dead
and dying. The gray coats of the Confederates
were thickly mingled with the blue of the
"Union duad. The green coats of the U. S. sharp
shooters and the red trouus and embroidered
3ackets of the 14th Brooklyn lay thickly among
the corn lulls, and along by the rail fence were
whole winruws of dead of both blue and gray.
The sunken road was filled with desd and dying.
Way over by the edge of the field nearest
the Union lines, by the east wood, lay the body
of a rebel Colonel fchot ali to pieces. The rebel
sharpshooters were posted In the tree-tops in
4he west woods, and were picking off our men
one by one. Little Charlie King a bright
eyed, d&rk-haired drummer boy of the 49th
Pa about 12 years of age, and the favorite of
his Tegimeat was standing behind me, when
& minie ball pierced his breast and he fell into
my arms calling the name of his mother. The
wound did not cause death at the time, so we
took him to the rear and gave him in charge of
theSurgeon. But we could not wait, and, leaving
him in gentle hands, we hurried back to the
front. As the wound was a bad one he must
lave died, but I have often thought I would
like to know whether he died ornoL Can any
member of the -49th tell me? As regards the
ether battery I cannot notr recall the name
It was further to the right of Frank's, aud w as
probably Cowan's. H. H. Bowies, Co. C, 6th

erly Chaplin Hills. CoL Dan. Mccook's bri-
gade, conbiitmg of the S5th, SGth, 125th HL,
nd 52d Oi,io, 1 presume were the first troops
to open fire in that oar first battle. We were
bu eight days out from .Louisville, having
started Oct. "L On the morning of the 7th oar
Tmgade being in the lead, the fao'th Hi. was de
tailed for picket. About dark and near 10 p.
3a. Co. t, Capt. Fountain, and Co. H, Capt.
.HalL were placed out as videts, and by day
light opened quite a brisk fire, which was kept
up till 10 a. sx., when ten. Fry, of ZollicoSer
fame, ordered us to charge the rebel pickets.
We charged over the ridge behind which we
liadleen lying during the night, and across a
small stream, np a bleep hill, and drove the reb
els peJlcicll, losing one killed and 12 wounded.
Xaeuk-CoL. MeGec had his horse shot from
tinder him.
The one killed was a member of Co. G. This
being our first trial with the rebels we felt
quite proud of it. The bGlh 111. m the alter
soon was formed as the rear -of the brigade,
having led te day before. From our position
we could see the battle raging around the ilu9
fcell house, observe our troops retire and then
sgain advance, retake their old position, and
drive the rebels. J. G. FaEIS, Co. B, 86th I1L,

2882, in ikvor of giving gold medals to 100 men
of the S8;h $5. Y. who participated in the " for

These men crossed in boats, took, 1 think,
nearly 100 prisoners and drove the rebels out
of the citj , thus making a way for our army to

A Yeteran's Open Letter to Senator John Shernicn,
of Ohio. '
Deae Sib: To your "courageous leadership"
is attributed the defeat of the " arrears " section
in tho pension bill and the saving to the
country of $200,000,000.
As manager of tho finances of the Nation, Mr.
Sherman, you won a great name. The secret of
your fame lay in a principle enunciated in your
speech that " if there was a contract, a prom
ise to pay, like there was to onr bondholders,"
you would "throw to the winds all other con
siderations and pay them."
Please, sir, let me ask you : Do yon not take
paius to hold up to our view the assuranco of
your love for the soldiers, and assert that you
have always advocated measures for their bene
fit? Did you, then, ever vote to pension soldiers
and to remove limitations to the collecting of
arrears? If so, why did you do it? Was it
from a sense of the justice of it; was there a
contract, that you should havo thus voted?
If not, was it a moral obligation, or was it an
outburst of gonorous charity? Tou paid tho
bondholders because thero was a legal obliga
tion. You admit that if the country had made
a legal contract with the soldier, that you
would pension him if ho was disabled; you
would waive all other considerations and pay
I waivo the question of howietfrly intMpRr
a peusion law was passed, for I never heard
tho subject of pensions even mentioned among
tho soldiers where I served. But, let me ask
you, sir, What i3 thedifferenco between a "legal
contract"" and a "moraLobligation," and which
is tho most sacred?
The Government proposed to you and
to thousands of others that it -would,
pay 7.3-10 per cent, interest for money to carry
on the war. You accepted the offer, paid over
your money and took the bond, yes, and
took the ribk, which wa3 a dangerous, one.
Early in the war you, as tho Government,
by just as solemn and sacred an enactment,
held out the promise of a pension to soldiers
disabled in the war aud to the families of
those who were killed. Would.it bo unjust to
assume that all those who enlisted after that
accopted the terms and closed the contract?
But, sir, when soldiers were wanted at the
opening of tho war, did they stop to quibble
and first ask, " What shall we havo therefor?"
Do you remember that in 48 hours' time a hun
dred thousand men were readyand eager to go
to the conflict? Did they take the risk with
out even a contract, eitber legal or moral?
Would they, sir, have wasted a moment at that
time to parley over a contract? Did $13 a
month of money at par, or afterward $16 at
50 per cent, discount, weigh a feather's weight
with them? Do you remember that while
they were receiving $10 a month in the army
those who stayed at home as laborers received $10
and $50; and that the wages of the former wero
consumed by their families for food ; And that
of the latter their pound gained, some five and
some ten pounds, and, reinvested and turned
over and over, they came out at tho close of
the war with all their old debts paid off and
rich, and that the former came home poor,
maimed, but proud and happy that tho country
was saved, yonr property preserved, and your
bonds secured?
You risked your spare money; they risked,
their lives and the happinca and comfort of
their families. You poured out your patriot
ism in words; they poured out theirs in blood.
You gained your usury; they gained a coun
try. To-day, you are still drawing your dividends
and will for tho next 20 yeara; 200,000 soldiera
have waited years in Tain for a pittance. You
have your bond with interest; theynowplead in
vain for their bare interest. You, the country,
have their blood, and they will never see it
again; it was long ago drank up by the thirsty
earth on Southern battlefields, and the last
traces are obliterated by the tears of Heaven.
A full half million was promptly set aside
by you, tho interest of which is to relieve one
favored person from the consequences of a
financial mistake, without a shadow of either a
legal or a moral obligation. Four hundred such
magnanimous acts would now relieve the dis
tress of 200,000 men who gambled not with
their money, but with their blood.
Did you, sir, consider tho " rights of tho peo
ple" and "generations yet unborn" in that
pet, and yet declare all legal and moral obliga
tions to the rest of us canceled and paid by tho
"act of limitation?"
How can you, sir, with your great name,
openly declare in one sentence that yon " will
protect the people from the consequences of
discharging an obligation to the soldier, how-'
ever meritorious it may be," and in another,
that you would willingly pay it if you wero
compelled to ; that " the mere amount would
not deter me you if there was a legal con
tract between the Government of the United
States and these soldiers, a 'promise to pay'
them from the date of their discliarge to this
time," thatyou " would throwto the winds all
considerations of severity upon the people of tho
United States, and would say, we'll fulfill our
contracts and do by these soldiers what wo
would by our bondholders or any other credit
ors; but Idenyin toto that thero is is any obli
gation in law or morals or in good faith to our
soldiers" to do this thing.
Mr. Sherman, I give my word that I nevor
heard during the whole war among thosoldieis
at the frout a word about getting pensions.
That the country must be saved, and, if the
Lord willed, that we miglit be permitted to re
turn to our babies, occupied our whole hearts
and souls. We had no power to compel you to ful
fill your obligations, to " embarrass yourselves
with our old back claims." You gave and you
took away at your own good pleasure. And now,
let me tell you, during the time you speak of,
when you "could have paid these claims so
easily and not have felt it," when you had
plenty of money, there were aoveral hundred
thousand of them piled up in ths Pension Office
and with the clerical force you had it would
take several yeara to pass upou and adjudicate
them; 200,000 perhaps are there yet, and many
of them date back beyond that time. Why did
you not dispose of them ? Why do you not now
dispose of tliem, since you say you are in favor
of passing a bill of relief for just such cases as
many of them are ? Why arc you (Congress)
continually holding out as a tempting bait a
promise to pay from now on if we will give up
the arrears ?
How would that be for honor in a financial
business transaction?
Oh, "Consistency! thou art a jewel' An
other thing. A largo majority of tho better
cias ol soidicra, except those with broken
bodies, felt that it would bo cruel to lay hold
of the country, bleeding and exhausted at the
close of the war with such a debt, aud with tho
dread foreboding which pervaded every heart
that possibly bhe might sink under it, or remain
"crippled for life," and claim assistance from
her: they went courageously to work to help set;
hor upon her feet.
Seeing tho crowd and rush for pensions, they
have struggled on, some learning now trades,
adapting themselves to new industries, and in
mostcases really beginning life over again. And
they have waited patiently till this time; but
they have buen expectant, they have had faith
in their country that in time all would be ad
justed righteously; but now, when they begin
to feel that it is high time, and havo been
watching wistfully for some sign, you give
them a stone; you offer them tho ashca of a
bitter disappointment.
" How sharper than a serpent's tooth,
It hi to have a thankless " country.
And yet, thank God ! it is not the country.
Yon claim, sir, to have gome knowledge of
tho feelings of the soldier. If this is true, how,
in tho name of Heaven, could you say so cruel
a thing of any real soldier in the country aa
that, having been fortunate enough to get his
own arrears, he is now opposed to others getting
ily dcarsbr, there is a bond existing hotweon
soldiers more sacred, more deep, moro mysteri
ous than any one can understand who has not
taken his Hfo in his hand, steeled hla heart
against tho terrors of death, and entered into
one of those dreadful conflicts, feeling that it
was tho last of friends, of home, of earth to him
forever, and amid thunders that shook the
oarth and volleys that wero like the ripping
vpou oi wit very Jtieavens, ana amid the
slaughter as of a city laid low in a dav, received
his baptism of firo. No, sir, you do not under
stand the feelings of a soldier toward his fellow
who with him camo out of that awful holo
caust alive, when you try to tell him that it is
unjuBtto him who has already received h.is

The special edition of the B. & O. Eed Book,
devoted to the history of the Eepublican party
and its antecedents, is an almost indispensablo
publication to those nfc all' interested in tho
development of the campaign of the year.
Great care is manifested in tho compilation of
data, and while everything is stated in tho
mo3tcoqciso manner, the information is so clear
and explicit as to be Teadily comprehended.
Tho chapter devoted to the origin of the party
and its national outcome from the dismember

as is also the points showing party policy as ex
pressed through Congressional action. The con

of the various parties, from the earliest period
of the country's history to the present, is of no
ordinary value, and it is a thing never before

quest. Officer, Harrison, IU says : 1. Under the new law
giving officers pay previous to date of muster, ia
officer entitled to pay from date of actual promo
tion on dress-parade, or only from date of com
mission? 2. Can an oQicer prosecute his own
claim under the above act, and. if so, what more is
necessary than to furnish affidavit of Colonel or
superior officer showing date of promotion, etc.?
3. Who is the proper officer to apply to for blanks,
etc., in such cases, and are not all regimental records
on file at Washington? 4. Is it more trouble to
prosecute such a claim than an average pension
claim, or why (if you know) is the fee demanded
larger? I have a circular from an attorney offer
ing to collect mine for 10 per cent., which in my
case would amount to about S60,and that is a great
deal more than is allowed in pension claims. An
swer. 1. From date of commission, provided thero
was a vacancy and he vas performing the duties
of that grade, or otherwise, as the case may be. 2.
A 11 officer can prosecute his own case if he choose3 ,
but we would not guarantee succsss. Each claim
is peculiar to itself, and it is impossible to say what
evidence will be required, as it largely depends
upon what the records show. 3. The initial pro
ceeding is to file a claim In proper shape In tho
War Department. The Government docs not sup
ply blanks. Such regimental records as veer e pre
served are on file hi the War Department. 4. In
some cjiaes a vast amount of labor and experience
is required, involving settlement of accounts in
various bureaus, as it is often found that there aro
balances standing against tins officer which have to
be adjusted. We do not think a fee of 10 per cent,
is excessive in view of tho experience required by
the attorney, who furnishes all the blanks and all
. the. head work to get such a claim through.
O. IV. R., ColUsn. Cul. By "commutation of cloth
ing" you probably mean the money value of cloth
ing not drawn, which was paid the soldier in cash,
where he did not draw his entire allowance. You
may not have drawn any clothing during the last
two years of your service, and still have no claim
against the Government, because the amount duo
a soldier for clothing not drawn was usually in
cluded in his final statements, and paid him by tho
paymaster at discharge. If thero was any extra
ordinary reason why this was not don in your
case you failed to state it.
E. McD., Onion City, JftcA. It is impossible to
tell from a single leaf of any plant what it may be
long to, unless it be of something well known or
peculiarly marked. The leaf sent us looks like the
leaf of some Euphorbiaceous plants, but without
more detinite intormation and probably without
flowers and fruit, its name or character cannot well
be determined.
. A. G East Doier, VI. If the nature of tho dis
ability has been shown by reliable testimony, w
should advise an appeal to the Secretary of the In
terior. The decisions of Secretary Teller havo been
uniformly lioeral and humane.
JC, Pomona, Kan., says: In advancing pension
from SlM to 5S0 per mouth will the Pension Office,
in addition to requiring the applicant to show him
self tmable for manual laborralso require him to
show that he cannot or does not perform clerical
service? Answer. No. It makes no difference how
much clcriatl labor a pensioner eun perform, that
does not affect the rating. Only ability or inability
lo perform manual labor is taken into considera
tion. Mrs. , Sullivan, Indiana, states as follows : My
husband was in the service and becamo disabled
there, was discharged for his disability, and died
of his trouble in about 18 months after discharged.
I remained his widow for eight years, then I re
married. No application bos ever been made for
Ids pension nor for myself. Can pension now be
procured? Answer. Hal you applied prior to July
i, 1SS0, you would have been entitled to a. pension
for yourself and $2 additional for each child under
16 years of age (at the date of soldier's death) until
they arrived at that age, for the period you remain
ed Ills widow. ThoJ mutation of the so-called arrears
act not having been repealed, all widows whose
claims havo been filed since Juue 30, 1880, can only
draw pension from date of filing application, and
in your case you are cut off, because at tho date of
filing your application you will not be the soldier's
widow, ha lug remarried, and, therefore, you are
not, or will not be, entitled. If any of your chil
dren by the soldier wero under 16 years of age at
the date of your remarriage, they ore entitled to
pension from the date of your remarriage up to the
time each became 16 years of age. In case of your
death they will bo entitled to the arrears of pension
back to tho date when their father died.
J. SL B., Crawford's Corners, Pa. A minor who,
after enlistment, gave all his bounty and savings
of his monthly pay to his parents, cannot by legal
process compel them to refund. It was proper
that he should contribute to their support in re
turn for their care of him while a child. It does
not look very well for 0. son to raise tho question
as to how he can get back, money voluntarily do
nated by him to Ids parents somo 20 years ago.
They were then and are yet entitled to it.
J. V.,PUtnburg,Pa.l. Wo cannot say how much
money was paid in a certain claim. The pen
sion agent who made the first payment can in
form you. 2. Act of July 22, 1861, provided a
bounty of $100 for an honorable service of two
years. Act of March 3, 1863, provided that S100
bounty be paid to such soldiers as had enlisted for
two years and wore discharged nrinr tn thnt. TkA-frtt
of service on accountof ivounds. Therefore, unless
discharged for ivounds, a soldier liad to serve two
years to be entitled to the S1C0 bounty allowed by
act of July 22, 1861. If discharged for wounds any
length of service would entitle to S100 bounty.
A. N. C, Tecumseh, Neb. Gen. John A. Logan
went out as a soldier at tho first battle of Bull Eun
and carried a. musket. Ho did good service with
it, too.
Subscriber, Indian Orchard. By insignia we pre
sume you refer to shoulder-knots. Those of a
Major are two gold leaves, and a Lieutenant-Colonel
two silver leaves on each knot.
C, Mansfield, Ohio, Bays : I am a pensioner. My
father and mother are each about 65 years of ago
they havo 110 Income only what little my father
can earn and my help with my pension. After my
death would my father or mother, if alive, or
either, bu entitled to draw my pension, "if any?"
At what rate would either be allowed? Answer.
Your father or uiotherwould not bo entitled, bo
causa they could not prove dependence upon you.
Your pension is given for your oiwi support, and
for no other purpose.
A. C. II., Camptown, Pa. You can probably se
cure an Increase on the hernia, for which you are
pensioned, by sending your certificate to tho Com
missioner, as provided by the recent ruling relat
ing to such cases. The hernia that has developed
shice your discharge will not be considered. Your
physician's theory that it was caused bi wearing a
tru-9 ia ingenious, but wo do not thi2 tho Pen
sion Office will entertain such a theory. You caa
apply for Increase on disability resulting from
fever and ague, if there U such disability existing.

G. A. R.; provides that members "of sueb State
regiments Ka were culled into service and subject
to the orders of U. a General officers, between the
dates mentioned (April 12, 1S81, and April 9, 1865),

J. FK East Liverpool, Ohio. No bill has passed
Congress granting pension of SSO for total deafness.
The law remains unchanged ; $13 Is the rate for total
deafness. The Mexican pension bill andtheamend
ments to tho pension laws which were attached to
said bill havipg failed in the House, there ore no
new laws relating to, pensions; therefore, the vari
ous questions submitted cannot be answered.
J2. J. Ii. Congress hjis provided for the appoint
ment of 150 special pension examiners for nervfces
in the field. About 120, in addition to those already
examined, wiil be needed to fill these position,
and examinations will be held as soon as practic
able by the Ciyil. Service Commission at different
places throughout the country to meet the conveni
ence of applicants. All applications must bo made
oa blanks that will be furnished by the Civil Serv
ice Commission to all who apply. The examina
tion will necessarily embrace somo knowledge of
law, especially the rules of evidence, and some
knowledge of anatomy and physiology. For text
of Mexican pension bill, etc., see The National
Tribuse of July 3,
Springfield, Mass., says: Does the Government
pay bounties to soldiers who havo served 20 yeara
or more, or does it pay bounties for long service?
Answer. No. The only reward for long service Is
additional monthly pay for each re-enlistment.
C. W. V., Bangor, Jcsays: Please inform me if
all pension claims in the Imn&i of special examin
ers ore those that have had statements made
against them by malicious persons, -irutcov "o.
Probably a small per cent, only of claims in hands
of special examiners are those wherein derogatory
statements have been made. The majority of such
claims arc those where there Is no hospital record
of the disability claimed and the proof furnished is
not considered reliable, or where the testimony
conflicts or is nfc variance with tho supposed facts.
R.J.S- Corydon, Ind., submits the following: I
am drawing a pension of $2i per month for loss of
arm. Can I get an increase on another wound,
which is mentioned in the original applia .tion, or
can I get an increase on hernia? The three com
bined prevent me from any manual labor, .diwicer.
If tho latter statement be correct, you are entitled
to SSO.
