I will not prctond to uarnito the many in toroetiing and amusing events that occurred during our encampment at Frodoriok, but all will remember the habit of almost everybody wearing hoBldor-straps with great silver letters tin Gorman text to donote the branch of service ithoy bulongod to, and the guards wore sordy ipuzelud to know how to sululo whon an oflkor made his apjKwranco, as the M.

Tbo Summer passed away, and tho bloody battles ou the Pouiusula had been fought and JPojio dofealed, and our hopes and fears wore abasing such other from zero to blood heat aud Ibadk again like the mercury in the thormomo lor. Our hospital was no longer a division, but a gonoral hospital, aud one of the very best in the country. Dr. Bobort F. Weir, T7. S. A,, was in idhurnu, with a large staff of assistants, and St .Josopli's furnished tho nurses from the sister Jliood. THE at, Aim. On Sept. 5, 3SG2, 1 was OfDcor of the Day at (the lioopUttl, aud Gon.

The Surgeon in charge, late in the uvouiug, had gone to take a Bttic much needed rest, leaving ordure llwtt 1 should "watch the telegrams from 'Gen.

I ordered tho long roll beaten, and about COO convalescents, with their arms, answered, and wore sent off in charge of A. A. Surg. C. P. Harrington towards Gettysburg, Pa., with two wagons loadtd with tho most valuable medi cines and other property of tho hospital. Then iBOttiug lire to the hospital aud quartermaster utores that could not be removed wc awaited itho arrival of "Lcc's Miserables." Saturday, Sept. 6, 9 o'clock a. m., and no reb els. Dr. Pat.

A DEMAND FOR, HUBUENDEK. There wjib a commotion at the cntranco of tho .grounds auiongtbo group of watchers as a single 'horseman dad in butternut dashed through the gate, up t and in front of whore wo were sit ting, ruined up his horse, brought his carbine to Ills fHiouldor, covering Dr. lleauy, who had risen to hi feet and stood at the bead of the stairs with 1ih badge :u Ollicor of tbo Day over 'his shoulder, aud said : "1 demand the surreudor of this post in tho .name of Gon. Lee and the Coiifedoratc States .of America," still covering Dr. Heany with his carbine. The Doctor turnod to me and asked, " What JliadJ hotter do V" "If you aro prepared to defend the place tell the man hi; if not, surreudor it," I replied. "Thou I fcurreudor, sir," said Dr. lleauy hurriedly. The Confederate smiled at the Doctor's em ibarrawimcut, told us he bulougcd to White's company of bordor cavalry, and was the ad vance of Lee's army that would soon be up. He tidvisud tie to keep within the grounds until the army had panned and taken possession of the city, and ihou rode off, after promising to send a guard. 'Dr. lleauy soon rccovorod himself, and aftor the man had gone began to complain that " the hnython would have allot me in a moment, without a bit of scruple, 1 really do believe, so 1 do; and a mean trick it was to point a rusty old tblundorbtioi at a gontletiiHii as nivor 'harmed 'him in bis life, so it was; and divil tho bit would 1 Jmuoiit if be foil dead iu the first fight, ithe baste." A Tear of laughter from the officors was not calculated to soothe his wounded feelings. We wore soon placed under guard, and a baU lory of light artillery oncamped in the grounds. 21ebei Srgcons wore not long in making thoir appuaniueo, but except to uhare our supply of fllquons made no demands, aud were salibucd to the our guols Xi'UUJi WE "WEUE TIIEIK J'BISOKIHIS. Stonowall Jackson's Medical Director, a brusque, pomjious Doctor of some ability, seemed to bo "ibesl niHii " among them, and with rare excep tions nil woro gentlemanly in thoir behavior. Tho pafejte of the army continued day and night witliout interval until Wednesday, and it mppoarod tw though it would uover ceii-o. It reminded me of what I had mad of Peter the Hormit's followers. Tho artillery were oaen mounted on the rudest of carriages, and rickety 01a uirni wagons wore been moving along id tad coiitntut with captured United States wagons. The uniforms of the soldiers wore not uniforms, but aotMintod of everything, from al most notiuug to the tuotit gorgeous apparel of fa ubad4 of colors. But squalor and altjeot Vrrotciiwiiiow appsarod to prolomiuato, while a lack of bkilled mechaitios was everywhere apparent. On Tuesday wc wore paroled aud pormitted to go upon tho streets and to our holols; but What a change had come over the city. Every whore wfi found tho butternut instead of the ibluo. The gonoral bohavior was good, and raroly did any act of outrage or disturbance oc cur. The utrlctest discipline was ou forced in every cum, lu fact, tho common soldior ap peared too wrotched and inanimate to caro for anything but to oat and sleep. Now and then, as a gonoral ollicor would be recognized, the pe culiar yil! of the army would be heard in that xnoumfui ,ort of key that appeared to come from an empty stomach and a sad heart, bo dif ferotit from tho cheer nud tiger of our own woll-fed Union soldiers. The points that struck me most forcibly were their groat numbers-1 wondered where upon earth thoy all came from and thoir wretched condition. They threw themselves down any where and fllopt. They ate anything and everything that was offered them, and about 800 staid in the hospital when tho armj' moved away. How men famished and footsore could light as they did was a question I asked myself iiiirton Cotinrv annleiack uudor his jacket. We had been told by the Confederate Surgeons that Gen.

Wo liad heard nothing from our forces sinco our rapture, aud were profoundly ignoraut of what wis going on outside of tho city, aud nearly so as to what wont ou in it. Exactly ono week from tho hour that wo wore captured tho same group of medical officers werowltiug on the same balcony, facing cast, iu company with about au equal number of Con federate Sttrgeulrfe, when a puff of smoko was seen to rise from the Monocacy hills, about threo miles from the city, on tho turnpike leading to Baltimore, followed a moment later by tho boom of a cannon. Another and another followed in quick 8uocoi8u. Tho pui& of smoke farthest away appeared largor than thoMj nearer, aud tho reports wore loudor, aud wo surmised they wore our guns. Tho Confederate Surgeons now arose, and, telling us that our army was approaching and they would soon leave the city, took a long, lat pull at onr supply of spirits frumcuti, hhook hands, bade us good by, aud mounting their horses rode away. We watched tho puffs of smoke oome nearer and nearer after each short interval of silence, and soon saw hues of skir mishors in DAKK BLUE COMING TOWAltD US, stretching a long distance on each side of tho turnpike, while a body of Confederate cavalry slowly retired toward tho city, stopping every now and then to fire a shot or two from their light field piecos. When our forces had como so closo that I thought tho enoniy must have left tho city, I ran down Market street to the corner of Pat rick, expecting to meet some of our advance guard, but judge of my surprise at seeing a Con federate ollicor with large, sandy whiskers calmly sitting on his horse, apparently waiting for soinobody. As I approached ho beckoued to me and said : "You are a Federal Surgeon, aro you not?" I answered affirmatively, and ho continued: "Tell your commanding officer that we have treated your friends kindly whilo in possession of the city, and wo will expect your army to do tho same toward those who sympathize with our cause." I repliod that I could dolivcr no verbal mes sage, but if ho would put his request ou paper 1 would deliver it. lie replied that ho had no time for that, but if bo heard of any ill-treatment toward them lie would he in a position to retaliate, and then ho informed me that he was Gon. Stuart. I loft him, and, walking down East Patrick streot had approached the edgo of tho city, whon I mot a body of Union cavalry galloping past, led by a gray-headed Colouel. Almost immediately a section of artillery unli inhered a short distance down tho street from whore I was, and 1 saw the gunners standing by thoir guns with lauyards in their hands, apparently waiting for au oncmy from up tho street where our cavalry had gouo. Hesitating for a moment which way to go, after failing to outer a door that I had tried, I heard a dreadful clatter of hoofs up tho street, MINGLBD WITH TISTOL EIIOTS and shouting, aud a moment lator a surging mass of cavalry came dashing down the street toward where I stood in tho fioutdoorofa dwelling. Tho Union cavalry wore being driven by tho robots, who were close up against their rear, firing and slashing at thorn with their sabers. It was every man for himself, aud some whoso horses had'fallou scalod garden fences while others darted up side alleys, but tho body came rushing along liko a cyclone. One Sergeant came dashing past at full speed, standing in his stirrups, with a rebel closo aftor, thrusting at him with his sabor at every jump of his horse, but unable to reach him. As they neared whore I stood tho rebel dropped his saber, and, draw ing his revolver, took deliberate aim aud fired, not 10 feet from the back of tho Sergeant, who foil dead from his horse within a few yards of whoro I stood. Ho was a fine-looking man, and I examined his revolver afterwards aud found ovory chamber loaded, aud why ho did not uso it I nevor could undcrstaud. I had him buried with others, and sent his watch, revolver and effects to his widow in Michigan. On wont the conglomerate mass of blue aud butternut, followed a second later by a terrific roar, and men aud horses were hurled back, torn and scattered liko chaff in a hurricane. They had rushed poll-mcll upon and overturned tho cannon, discharging them at tho moment tho mass was densest. The rebels who were unhurt hastily retreated, but a sickening mass of dead and wounded, friend and foe, lay side by side, with thoir horses, torn limb from limb. Our cavalry, a Michigan regiment, had been ambushed at the bend of West Patrick street. A moment lator and Burusidc's infantry swarmed through the city, driving everytbiug before them toward South Mountain. And now commenced the series of terrible battles of this campaigu at Burkottsvillc, South Mountain and Antiotam. C. E. Goldsuouough, Hun torstown, Pa. tt BRICK-TOP" CARROLL tVas Gen. La u man Cbargrable With the Costly 311s takc. Editor National Tuirune: I have read Comrade Jackson's articlo in reference to Gen. LaumanatJacksou,Miss. Hcsccms to infer that I had done Gen. Liu man an injustice. I wish to say that I had no intention of so doing. I said the assault was a fearful mistake, and that Gen. Lauman was immediately placed under arrest, and that Gens. Ord and Sherman said ho was to blame, while ho (Lauman) contended it was not his fault. It is true, I might have given a moro detailed account, but those wcro the simple facts a3 thoy occurred. Now I should like to have all the facta in this case, aud hopo Comrado Jackson will give us all he knows in referenco to it. As ho was a staff officer at headquarters, he ought to know more than thoso who wcro iu the ranks. Ho says: When the halt was tnailu at the cdjro of the woods Gen. Ord blurted out, in n viy peculiar to liimclf, n rcinnrk tlmt offended Clcn. 1 -iiiimnn, nml in sheer desperation he repealed the order for Col. 1'ugh to advance. Will Comrade Jackson tell us what was Gon. Ord's romark at that critical moment to Gen. lauman ? This will perhaps cast somo light on the affair. Wo wish it understood that wo aro no admirer of Gen. E. O. C Ord, and think it fortunate for tho army at Hatchie Ittvcr that a bullet interfered and relieved him of tho com maud. The gallant Stcpbon A. Hurlbut sailed down to tho front and took command and soou straightened out the division, charged tho reb els and sent them, with their commander, Gen. Van Dorn, flying to tho rear. Wo have alwnj'S felt kindly towards Gen. Lauman, and claimed he was not to blame for the great loss of life at Jackson. Ho was held in high esteem by his command, and I can yet remember the scene when ho was placed under arrest. Accompanying Gen. Hovey, who super seded him, ho came around after wc had re turned from that terriblo charge, and calling tbo -list 111. out, ho introduced Gen. Hovey, who said: "General, is this all of the list III.?" Gen. Lauman, with tears streaming down his checks, said: " No, General; tho rest lie sleep ing over there," pointing to the battlefield. Again, before ho left for homo, ho visited us, aud said ho was not to blame, and thanked God thero was a day coming when it would bo known who was to blame That he wasa bravo and gallant officer every member of tho First Brigade aud the entiro Fourth Divtsiou well knew, aud tho feeling toward Gen. Ord was very bitter so much so that somo of the boj'S of tho Fourth Division after our return to Vicksburg gathered in a crowd and throw 6toncs at his headquarters tcut until ho ha1 to skip out in his nether garments to save his scalp. Tho next morning ho reported to Gen. Grant that he could do nothing with the Fourth Division, and Gen. McPhcrson requested that tho division bo given to him. Wo woro trans ferred to the Seventeenth Corps, where wo re mained until tho closo of tho war. Gon. Lauman should havo been accorded a hearing and the facts mado known. Wo learn ho was so worried over tho matter at Jackson that his mind becanio unsettled aud ho died at his homo in Iowa. Will some of tho old 7th or 3d Iowa givo us tho particulars of his death? I remember just as Col. Pugh halted tho bri gade an Orderly rodo up to Gen. Lauman and handed him an order. What it was I do not know, but he ordered Col. Pugh forward with tho brigade. I wrote Gen. Sherman last Sum mer iu reference to this charge, and this is his answer: 912 Gauhison Avenue. St. U)Vis, Mo., July C, 1SS5. K.T. I.cn, Ccrro Gordo. HI. DkakMk: Your letter of inquiry under dato of July 11 is received. Gen. Sherman, in answer, wishes me to say that the charge "you refer to was made by Iiiiiiihii'm Division against tho instruc tions of the Corps Commander. Gen. Ord. On the extreme right Gen. Sherman ntlho time was dis tant feoiuc four miles, near the Clinton road. For Litis mistake Gen. Lauman was, at Gen. Ord's re que&t. ivlievcd of hiseoinmand. I think this cov ers all the points contained in your letter. Youre, very truly. . J. M. BAcnETT. Secretary. Comrado Jackson will now see why I said in my article that Ord aud Sherman said Lau man was to blame; but I suppose Gen. Sherman simply took Gon, Ord's word for it, which would not pass with the Fourth Divisiou. E. T. Lee, Secretary, -list 111., Ccrro Gordo, 111. Ills IJrluacIa nt Autiejam and tho wilderness. Editoe National Tbibune: Id a recent issue Frank L. Hicksf Lieutenant, 7th W. Va., intimates that Comrado Owen F. Wright, in a former articlo, deprives the 7th W.Va., 4th and 8th Ohio, of part of tho glory showered upon tho old brigado by our division commander, Gen. French familiarly aud respectfully called "Old Blinkcy," in presenting tho 11th lnd. a prize gun. I wish to intcrccdo by saying, let notour comrades" of either tho 11th lnd. or tho above-named regimentg reflect slightingly upon each other, for they thought well of each other and all did good service. Tho -1th was on de tached service for a time; it is possible tho re maining thrco regiments wcro drawn closer together thereby; but all havca record of which they can feci proud. I can saj-, and that truthfully, tho old bri gado stirred up my pride to a high noint at Antictam. I was the only member of tuo 1 1th taken prisoner on that day, and was held as a prisoner not over 150 yards on tho left Hank, our brigado being then on tho cxtromo lft of the line. The Johnnies wcro in the sunken road just in front of the Boulcttc house. Tho brigado on the right gavo way, and when tbo Confederate officer saw his men following in a charge, " now," ho said, " that brigado that holds on so tenaciously will givo way." As mad as a hornet I replied, using tho Johnny ver nacular, " I reckon not." About that" timo tho charging. column had reached tho lino tho other brigado had receded from.t iWhat did tho right of our old brigade do? Ah, it was glorious. Tho boys just wheeled on their stomachs as upon a pivot, and gavo them a withering firo in prolougation of their line, doubling them up, aud then tho brigado rallied, charged forward and rc-estnblialied tho line. When tho rebel officer saw that ho said, "AJiosemca tight liko devils, and asKcu mo what troojs thoy were. I told him they were Indiana, Ohio, and West Virginia regiments. " When thoy liedown,"! said, "thoy mean busi ness, and will not be driven, for every man of them knows tho great danger in rising uuder such a fire." I feel confident ovory member of tho 1 1th lnd. has a very large share of pride iu tho old brigade. Will somo member of tho 7th W. Vn. toll where they woro in the Wilderness? My recol lection is wo were separated. Our moat press ing servico was at tho cros3road3.

Thoso that had given way charged back with us. Tho work for a littlo whilo was fearful, but finally tho Johnnies could stand it no longer and gavo way. Never will I forget tho gallant work of the 20th lnd., during tho hottest firo singing "Bally Hound tho Flag, Boys." And old "Brick Top" Carroll, wasn't he a daisy? Ciiakles H. Myeeuoff, 11th lnd..

With no desiro to pluck tho laurels of other organizations or to detract one iota from tho earliest imnulfccs of regimental patriotism, yet 1 wish to claim for the 1st N. Y. (Col. Wm. 1L Allen originally commanding) a muster into tbo United States service on April 23, 18G1, by Capt. W. H. Hayman, of tho 7th U. S. Inf., at Camp Washington, Staten Island, N. Y., all of which the records of the Adjutant-General's Offices at Albany and Washington will confirm. The 1st N. Y. was cngugod at tho battle of Big Bethel, near Hampton Boads, Va., and sub sequently joining McClellan's army after Wil liamsburg was assigned to Berry's Brigade, Kearny's Division, Heiutzelman's Corps (after ward Third Corps), and participated in all the battles of that famous fighting division up to tho dato of its expiration of term of service, and at the request of its then Colonel and Gen. D. B. Birney, commanding division, the regi ment went into actiou at Clianccllorsville on May 2 and 3, 1603, although its term of service had already then expired (and it was awaiting transportation home), losing in that fightuearly 15 per ceut. in killed and wounded of its al ready decimated numbers, and among whom Avas its gallant Colonel (J. Fred. Piorsou) him self. Immediately after that fight tho regi ment, uuder the command of its brave and ac complished Lieuteiiaut-Colouol (Francis L.

EDrron National Tuibdne: In looking over your columns it is somewhat amusing to see how some of tho comrades claim special glory or famo for themselves or tho regiments to which they belonged. Ono will claim that it was his regiment that raised tho first flag at a certain place, or took a battery at another ; and, by tbo way they writo, you would think the rebellion would never havo been put down if it had not been for them. Comrades, are wc not claiming too much glory for ourselves? If we, after a hard-fought bat tle, lived to plant tho flag on a fort, or capture a battery, let us remember thoso who fell by the way. 1 remember reading of a soldier who fell at the foot of Lookout Mountain, mortally wound ed. For somo timo ho lay thero apparently unconscious of all around him, but by and by ho heard a shout which seemed to como from a distance. Ho roused a littlo and asked a comrade: "What is that?" Tbo comrade told him that it was our boys cheering on tho mountain; that thoy had driven tho rebels, and our flag was floating on the top. "Baisc mo up," said tho dying soldier, "aud let me look once more on that flag!" Tho comrade raised him up, but his eyes wcro too weak to sco tho flag. Ho asked again if it was ou tho top, aud his friend assured him that it was. "Well," said he, "if it is, I helped put it thero!" Yes, comrades, although ho fell at tho bot tom, or in the commencement of tho fight, yet he truly helped put it there, just us much as thoso that lived to reach tho top. And whilo wo arc claiming so much for ourselves, let us remember the bravo boys that fell at tho foot of tho mountain. Thoy "helped to put it there" as much as auy of us did. J. B. Bowk, Co.

Editoe National Tin bune: At the time of the Sanders raid on Knoxvillcand other points 011 tho E. T. & Ga. and 11 T. & Va. Bailroads I was a resident of Knoxville, having gone to that city from Cleveland, O., some years prior to tho war. In tho early part of June, 16G2, Gen. H. S. Sanders was ordered by Gen. Burn sine from Williamsburg, Ky. His command first struck Lenoir's Station, on tho 11 T. & Ga. Bail road, and thence on to Kuorvillc, where it appeared on tho morning of tho IStli of June. Tho news of tho approach of Sanders had preceded, it somo 21 hours. Tho Union ists were elated with tho thought of seeing Federal troops, being especially anxious for them to occupy Knoxville. With hundreds of others, men, women and children, 1 stood on the high Is above tbo depot to witness the action of this day. About U o'clock wo saw glistening carbines aud tho Stars and Stripes moving slowly down tho dis taut hillside into tho plain west of tho depot. There were but low L'oiilcileratcs in the city probably less than 100. Capt McClung, Con federate Chief of Ordnanco at Knoxville, had placed a battery iu front of what was then known as tho Summit House. Another bat tery, worked by some members of the (Jlh Fla., was placed on the elevation above the E. T. & Va. Bailroad.on the right of Gay street, facing the depot. As soon as tho Federals deployed, McCluug's battery opened upon them at long range. The raiders replied with a mountain howitzer, and with fatal precision. One singlo shot passed through a cotton bale, cut off both of McCIung's legs and killed two men back of him. This was the total list of casualties on tbo rebel sido. Gen. Sanders's slay was very brief. Had ho known the situation ho could have takou Knoxville easily. Tho Federals took their departure as they came, very leisurely, proceed ing to Strawberry Plains and Moyiy Creek, whero they burned the bridges. For hours after thoy were gone tho rebel batteries were plied with great vigor at imaginary Yankees, and greatly to the amusement of the non-combatants, who know thero was hot a raider within five miles of tbo city. CapL McClung, killed on this day, was de servedly ono of the most popular and highly esteemed men in East Tennessee. His death .was sincerely aud widely lameulod, both by Unionists aud Secessionists. 1 would liko to hoar from somo member of this raiding party, if there are auy yet living. W. 1).

I can never forget that affair, as I was on spe cial detail and stationed at a redoubt near the bridge which the skirmishers crossed. I sup poso tho skirmish was. to discover the where abouts of the enemy if 'they had evacuated, as they had not been seen that morning. Tho skirmish-lino was not fired upon until they neared tho rifle-pits, when a hot firo was opened upon them. Gen. Terry ordered tho buglo call for retreat as soon 03 he saw how our men wcro being cut down, but it could not be heard abovo the cannonading from tho redoubt. He called for a voluutecr to order them back. I was tho only idlo person, so I went. It was ono of my worst experiences during tho war. To bo un der fire aud not bo abio to send a few bullets back in return wa3 no fun. And now comes au article from a comrade of the 13th lnd. I have not forgotten his rcgi- meur, 11 no nas mine. 11 nis regiment Kept a record. as well through tho war as then it may well bo proud of it. The comrade tells about au engagement at Black Water Creek. I happened to bo one of tho 10 men detailed to cut away the trees felled by tho rebels across tbo road near tho ford. After the work was fiuished my comrado and self stepped behind the trees to sco the result of a chargu that would be sure to bo made. Down camo tho cavalry with in fantry mouutcd behind. The horses not liking to carry double aud tho bullets flying like hail caused a failure. I think this happened beforo the pontoons wcro put into the creek. As soon as they wero put in the infantry followed. 1 thiuk it consisted of a part of the Gth Mass. aud the 130th N. Y. After wo had driven tho rebels out of the pits one of our regiment found a violm and commenced playing aud dancing be fore the fighting was over. The hist I heard of him he was chasing a goose around a farm-house, but ho was cap tured instead of tho goose. I am sorry my friend of the 13th had such bad luck tho night wo camped ou tbo way back to Suffolk, losiug his potatoes and burning his shoes. I dislike to say that I stolo chickens that night, but I dined ou them for two or three days after wards. I also had a good wash-tub aud board to wash my clothes with. A. F. Bouinson, Co. A, 130th N. Y. Dragoous, Dixon, 111. AVlhlcr's ISrlsade at Clilckamausa. Editoe National Tbibune: In a recent is sue Comrado B. F. Magec, 72d lnd., seeks to correct the statement of Major Geo. B. Jeuness, of Kansas, as to tho battlo of Chickamaugn, Sept. 19, 1SG3. I do not wish to enter into the controversy except to say both aro correct and each in error. At an important juncture of the battle on the 10th tho !fcd 111. M't'd Inf. was ordered to the support of Gen. J. J. Reynolds and occupied for a timt the gap referred to. It was only part of our regiment, or COO mon of Wildcr's Uripade, that Major Jcniiess has mis taken for the five regiments composing "Wild cr's Lightning Brigade." We, tho Dd, wcro nearly enveloped by tho double lino of rebels, who, flushed with victory in tho death of Col. King and tho defeat of his brigade, advanced their wholo line of battle aud swept us from that part of the field, not, however, without a gallant resistance on our part and severe punishment from our Spencer repeating rifles, in which manyou both sides bit tbo dust. Comrades Mngco and Jcnness, if cither of 3011 como to St. Louis call upon James McClurc, Commander of Frank P. Blair Post, No. 1, Department of Illinois, who was one of the 17th lnd., and ho will corroborate my statement. John H. Boun, Major, 92d 111. M't'd Inf. COLUMBIA, S. C. Horr and Br TTTiom tho Surrender r7as Becelred Editor National Tbibune z In your issue of Sept. 2 I noticed a letter from T. D. Pol lock, Co. E, 30th Iowa, and also one from J. Luckoy, 25th Iowa, regarding the entering of Columbia, S. C. As they both qaoto from their diaries kept at the timo they may bo correct so far as regards tho movements of their re spective companies, but aro somewhat incor rect as to the movements of somo of tho troop3 of tho Iowa Brigade, of the First Division, Fifteenth Corps. Comrado Pollock's record from his diary is correct as to tho movements on Feb. 10, but not correct as to tho eroding of Broad Bivcron tho 17th, which is accounted for by his being toward tho rear and a littlo lato in getting over the river. The advance of tho brigado (tho 31st Iowa) commenced cross ing the river about midnight of tho lGth by a rope ferry. As only about ono company could bo crossed at onco, it took a long timo to get the brigade over. At daybreak there wero only some three regiments across. They deployed as skirmishers and advanced and captured the enemy's pickets. TI113 was early, as it was light enough to distinguish a man from a tree. After passing about half a milo through the timber wc camo iuto an open field on the sido hill, but did not halt until at the top of the hilr, from where wo could seo the city, aud could also seo Wheeler's cavalry on tho adjoin ing hills. Hero tho order was given the com mand to halt aud form the regiments. Whilo waiting for the skirmishers to come in and form with their commands the carriage spoken of by Comrado Pollock was seen coming from tho city bearing a white flag. Col. Stone, of the 25th Iowa, commanding tho brigade, rodo out and met it, and received tho formal sur render of the city from the Mayor. This could not have been later than 7:30 or S o'clock on the morniug of the 17th. Tho order was at onco given to march, which wo did at pretty quick time Nor did we halt until wc stacked arms on tho principal street, at about S:30 or 0 o'clock a. m. Tho first thing we then thought of was to get something to cat. My bunkmato aud myself went a few blocks from Main street to a privato house, where wo were served with tho best breakfast the house could give us principally corn-bread. Comrade Pollock says: "Tho Chaplain looked as though ho had two hcad3;" pretty good evidence that Pollock was a little dazed aud saw double. Comrade Luckey says : " Wo drove tho rcb3 and took the town at sunrise." This is partly correct, for we drove the rebs a littlo beforo sunrise, received the surrender about sunrise, and occupied tho city as soon thereafter as we could march about two miles. As soon as a pontoon could be laid Gon. Sher man and his staff came into the city, which wa3 about noon. As to tho burning of the city lean add only a word. Wheu we stacked arms a man came up to the head of my company and said he was a Union soldier who had ben held there as a prisoner, but had escaped aud beeu secreted in the city by Union people, and that thero were n large number there who had becu held as prisoners. Ho said: "If you do not burn the city wo will." The city was burned, but who burned it? The Iowa Brigade held possesion, of tho city until aftor dark, when it was re lieved nud moved about a milo from the city. Tho men had been on duty thero 21 hours, so that it was time for them to be relieved; with out referring to the fact that a few wero iu tho same condition that Comrade Pollock was and could "sco double." R. M. Marvin, Orderly Sergcaut, Co. H, 31st Iowa, Manchester, Iowa BATTLE OF ATLANTA. Another Member of the Fifteenth Corps Criticizes (ieu. Le-,-sctt. Editoe National Trihi'XK: Gen. Lcggett in his letter published Aug. 2G says that, in writing the article describing tho part taken by his command, he did not intend any reflec tion on the Fifteenth Corps, and that a careful examination of the article would show that ho did not reflect on them. I am willing to con cede that he did not intend any injustice to the Fifteenth Corps. Still, as bis articlo and the accompauying maps conveyed vory dis tinctly the idea that the corps had beeu driven from the line which it bad occupied in the morniug, injustice was done to so much of tho corps as maintained its position on the ad vanced line, and was not driven from it. I concede to him the right to publish a history wherein his command shall be the central fig uro; but while so doing it was incumbent on him, wheu incidentally mentioning other com mands, to stato their actions correctly. Ho saj's: I did not know when I wrote how much of the Fifteenth Corps was in position that day. I sim ply learned that all in position north of lien. Wul- cutthail been driven back; whether one division or three, I did not know ; and for my purpose in writing it made no difference. Tho General may havo heard that all tho Fifteenth Corps north of Walcutt had been driven back, but ho never learned it, for it was not truo. Furthermore, whilo it may havo been unimportant to Gen. Lcggett whether he correctly stated the result of the fight ou the irontot tuo JMitceutn corps, it does maKe a diflcrenco with tho boys of the Fifteenth Corps. It would have been no disgrace to be over powered and compelled to fall back to another line; but it would be disgraceful to allow his tory to bo so distorted as to make it appear that wo wero whipped, when in truth and fact we wcro not whipped or driven an inch. I owo tho boys of tho Sixteenth Corps an apology. I supposed the troops engaged in re taking the lino tost by tho two brigades of our Second Division, all belonged to the Fifteenth Corps. In this I am satisfied I was mistaken. What I took to bo a brigade from John E. Smith's (Fourth) Division, was a brigade from the Sixteenth Corp3. I remember that the 81st Ohio was amougst them. The brigade wa3 on our left and did its share in retaking tbo lino. Capt. Williams's battery may have con tributed towards the restoration of the line south of tho railroad. I could not sec what took place there. But I neither saw nor heard of any assistance from that quarter on tho north side. Iu conclusion, permit mo to say that but two brigades of the Fifteenth Corps wero driven from their line ou that day; and that no dis credit attaches to them for falling back, 03 it would havo been fully to attempt to hold the ground. Thoso brigades were second to none in our army for grit and stayiug qualities. Further, that it will not do for auy command to arrogate to itself more credit for the success of that day than it awards to others. Each brigade, divisiou aud corps did its duty nobly and like heroes. If their positions had been transposed, tho outcomo would probably havo been the same. As it was, theru was glory enough for all; then let us give each other the credit justly due. Crosby Johnson, Co. G, 7(ith Ohio, Hamilton, Mo. Gen. lYaltiitt's Rrlsaile. Editor National iTribune: I wish to thank Comrado Johnion, of tho 7b'th Ohio, iur his article on tho battle of Atlanta, July 22, 1SC1. 1 beliovo him to'bo very nearly correct. Gen. Walcutt's Brigade was at that timo in the Fourth Division, Fifteenth Corps, and was com posed of the Gth Iowa, -iOtlt 111., -ICth Ohio (Walcutt's regiment), 07th lnd., aud 103d 111. The brigado was commanded at Mission Bidgo by Gen. John M. Corse, of tho Gth Iowa, ho of Allatooua fame, where ho was " short a cheek bone and an car, but was able to whip all Hades yet." After the fall of Atlanta the brigade was in tho First Division, with the addition of the 2Gth 111. and 100th Jnd.', to tho closo or tho war. Gcu. Walcutt was wounded at Griswoldville, near Macon, Ga., when 5,000 home guards tried to take his 1,300 men, but left 2,000 in killed, wounded, aud prisoners instead, which caused Gen. Howard to issue a special order congratu lating tho brigade. Wo were afterwards com manded by Gen. Cattorson, of tbo 97th lnd.. who has since died. Gens. Corse and Walcutt are ttill living, I believe. Why don't they speak up? Aro they all liko Capt A. B. Smith, of tho 103d, who says, "Our record was made years ago, and wo aro proud of it." Bather odd that it has taken 22 years to leam that the Fifteenth Corps was routed on tho 2d of July, 1301, aud did not know it. Gen. How ard paid us a deserved compliment in his recent articles iu The National Tribune, where bo said, upon tho arrival of the Fifteenth Corps at Chattauooga from Memphis, "they had already demonstrated their ability to match far, iorage wjII, and fight hard."

Editou National Tiubune : I have in my possession a silver cup given to rue by a slavo of a wealthy banker living a mile anil a half from Cleveland, Tenn. The circumstances wero as follows: Shortly after tho battle of Missionary Rillae tho Eleventh Corps was or dered to the relief of Gen. Lurnsido at Knox ville. While on tho march we camped over night about a mile and a half northeast of Cleveland, near the house of a wealthy banker. I succeeded in getting a night's lodging at tho slave's house referred to, whero I fouud one of our cavalry Captains, who likewise was in search of a place to lay his weary head. Shortly after my arrival our colored friend pointed out to us tho placo where his master's silverware was buried iu a clothes-basket. Seeing that wo wero incredulous, he approached the place of deposit, and with tho toe of his boot raked the dirt off and soon brought to light tho cup referred to and a long silver tablespoon. We immediately stopped him from tinearthiug any more of tho treasure, and called him into tho ctbin. When lie camo in he took from under his coat tho cup and spoon. Wo refused to accept them. He said: "OhIfurdelubo, God, massa, takedatarcup and sjioon wid yor; cazo if massa finds dem yero, he'll kill mo sho." To allay his fears and prevent tho possibility of endangering his life, wc accepted them, tho Captain (I do not remember his name) taking tho spoon and myself tho cup, which I attached to tho horn of my saddle as a drinking cup for the remainder of tho campaign. On the side of the cup is engraved "Jcsso M. Hill," and on the bottom is scratched. " Athens, Tenn. 1st Tenn. Cav." Tho cuphxs been in my possession since 1881, nnd, considering the lapse of time and the bat tering it received while on the march, it U well preserved. If auy of tho readers of The Na tional Tribune can givo mo any information as to the proper owner I will cheerfully teturu the same. Dk. E. L. H.
