"WTTH THE SOUND OF BATTI.K IK HIS SABS.
A strange dispatch this, in view of the fact
that for three successive days IfcClellan had
'been almost hourly receiving peremptory or
ders to send Franklin to the rront, aad that he
liad been reporting almost as often that he was j
dofneeo. It tau6t lie borne in mind also that
at the time this telegram was sent, Franklin,
-with 11,000 men; Sumner, with 14,000 men,
and Cos, with 5.090 men. wore all ia and near
Alexandria under McCJelian's direct control,
and that he had positive orders to send them
forward. The sounds of battle were in Las oars
all the time and should of themselves have
furnished him with a reason for harrying them
to the front more imperative than any orders.
As Gen. McCielian had positively stated
again aud opsin that Franklin could not move
to the front because of want of transportation,
St was of course doubly impracticable for the
same reason thst both Franklin and Sumner
should go forward, and the first part of this
proposition to the 'President, therefore, could
not have been made with any purpose of being
carried out. The last of the two suggestions
vie, "to leave Fope to get out of his scrape,"
was therefore the real one. What was the
"scrjpe" that Pope was to be left to get out of?
He had been fir nearly three weeks marching
and fight! ap a! most continuously, for no other
purpose tnau to give time for Gen. MedeUan's
army to assemble at Alexandria and come for
ward to the field to his support. The roar of
battle at the front for three or four successive
days was sounding in Gen. Medellan's ears,
and in answer to it he ed vises that Pope be left
to get out of his "scrape. And was Gen. Pope
alone involved in this scrape so touehingly
alluded to by Geo. McOellan ? Were there not
alfo in this "scrape" thousands of loyal aud
gallant soldiers who had been for weeks fight
ing and marching with ihe ole hope that their
comrades of the Army of the Potomac would
come to their aid, as they had goue forward to
aid thera ? How maay thousands of these gal
lant men lie dead on bloody fields, because they
were left to get out of their scrape " ?

II is pitiful to continue this snbjeet further,
bat perhaps it may be as well to dispose of Mc
QeUas's eqaaily insincere excuses concerning
want of transportation. The following tele

There is no fear of an enemy crossing the Rappa

be found. 1 hope Mac's at work, and we fhall soon
be ordered out of this. It would seem, from proper
statement of the enemy, that lie was waudering
around loose, but I expect they know what they
j are doing, which is more than anyone here or
anywbcio knows.
I shall only remark that during the days on
which these despatches were sent ofl Porter
was not at the front at all, cither personally or
with his corps, and that the uuaraiable stories
and Sings which these letters and telegrams
contain were either suggested by his imagina
tion or were picke-1 up from stragglers aud
skulkers from the front.
Ou the west of Porter during all this time
was Banks's Corps at Warrenton Junction. On
the north of him. along the Warrenton pike and
sooth of it at Greenwich, were the corps of
McDowell and Sigel and the divisions of .Rey
nolds, of lieuo, and of Kearny. Whilst on
the cast of him, and betweau him and Manassas
Junction, were the division of Hooker and the
Headquarters of the Army of Virginia. He
was moving slowly along the chord of a semi
circle (the road from Warrenton Junction to
Manassas Junction).
The arc of this semi-circle was occupied by
the rest of the army, the army of the enoray
being ou the outside of it altogether. Our
whole army, therefore, until late on the morn
ing of the 29th, was interposed between Por
ter and any force of the enemy, and he was in
as safe a place during all that time as if he had
been in the grounds of the War Department,
at Washington. His condition of mind, as
evinced in these dispatches, promised very
little toward the active and zealous work ex
pected of every faithful officer under the cir
cumstances which surrounded us, aud little as
it promised the performance was still less.
That his corps fought on the 30th is true, aud
be has made the most of It. But why and how
did it do so? On the night of the 29th,
after bis failure to go into actieu that whole
day, I sent him peremptory orders to march his
corps to the field of battle, and report to me iu
person.

This order brought him to my presence tlte
next morning, aud I, myself, ordered him into
the action, and watched his movements from a
position ou the ridge in rear of him.
It would necessarily have been fatal to him
personally not to go into battle under such
circumstances, and his fighting on the 30th was
a matter in which his inclination or disin
clination bad no part.
Whatevor credit is given him for his action
on the 30th must be largely qualified by these
fade.
The gallant men of his corps who did the
fighting on the 30th would have fought equally
well the day before if tbey had been given tlio
chance to do so. That tbey had not this op
portunity the dajr before is in no sense their
fault, aud it is quite certain that a large num
ber of them were both surprised and disan
pointed that they were not permittod to go into
the action of the 29th.
Franklin arrived at Centerville, eight miles
in the rear of the battlefield of second Bull
Ken, late in the afternoon of the 30th (having
marched 21 miles toward the field of battle in
bur days), too late to be of service in that bat
tle, and he, himself, was iu a condition of mind
which made his presence rather an injury than
a benefit to the army which he was to retn
foroa. ,
It was the knowledge of this feeling and tlio
open exultation of Franklin aud other officers
of rank in his corps over the fact that their
comrades bad been worsted in the battle of tho
day before which induced me to recommend
that the army be drawu back to tho intrenclt
uteuts around Washington, and there thor-
Thfe3 dispatch was presented to tho original
court-martial which tried Ocn. Porter, embodied
in one from Gen. Jtarnsfda to Gen, Ifnlleck, and

mo to bo any hope of success for that army
while such a feeling prevailed among so many
of its higher officers. It was therefore drawn
hack to Washington, and JlcClellnn succeeded
to, or, as ho himself intimates in his official
report, usurped the command of it. Tlio means
by which such a condition was reproduced

Tlio Ji'nmljer of ilio Star;.
Prof. E. S. IToUlcn, in the Century.
The total number of stars one can sec witf
depend very largely upon the clearness of tlio
atmosphoro and fhckoennessof thcoye. There
arc in tho whole celestial sphere about G.OOO
stars visible to an ordinarily good eye. Of
those, however, we can never see inoro than a
fraction at any one time, because a half of tho
sphere is always below tho horizon. If wo
could see a star in the horizon as easily as in
the zenith, a half of tho whole number, or
3.000, would bo visible on any clear night. But
stars near the horizon aro seen tlironuu so
giuubu wucKuess ol acraospnero as groany io
l.lLJ.l -.- -1. , -- ., -L-T
obscure their light, aud only the brigb tost ones
can there bo seen. As a result of tbi3 obscura
tion, it is not likely that more than 2,000 star3
can ever be taken in at a single view by any
ordinary eye. About 2,000 other stars are so
near tho South Polo that thoy never rise in
our latitudes. Hence, out of 6,000 supposed to
be visiblo, only 4,000 ever cocio within tho
range of our vision, unless we make a journey
towards the equator.
As telescopic power is increased wo still find
stars of fainter and fainter light. But the
number cannot go on increasing forever in the
8a mo ratio as with the brighter magnitudes,
because if it did tho whole sky would bo a
blaze of starlight. If telescopes with powers
far oxceediug our present ones were made they
would no doubt show new stars of tho 20th and
21st, etc., magnitudes. But it is highly proba
ble that tho number of such successive orders
of stars would not increase in tho same ratio
as is observed in the eighth, ninth and tenth
magnitudes, for example. The enormous labor
of estimating tho number of stars of such
classes will loug prevent tho accumulation of
statistics on this question; but this much is
certain, that iu special regions of the sky,
which havo been searchingly examined by
various telescopes of successively-increasing
apertures, the number of new stars' found is by
no means iu proportionate thoiucreased instru
mental power. If this is found to bo truo else
where, tho conclusion may be that, after all,
the stellar system can bs experimentally
shown to be of finite extent and to contain only
a finite number of stars. In the wholo sky an
eye of average power will see about 0,000 stars,
as I have just said. With a telescope this
number is greatly increased, and tho most pow
erful telescope of modern times will show moro
than 00,000.000 stars. Of this number not one
out of 100 has ever been cataloged at all. In
all, 311,926 stars, from tho first to tho nino
and a half magnitudes, aro contained in tho
northern sky; or about 000,000 in both hem
ispheres. All of theso can be seen with threo
iucli object glass.

A hi in in Bread.
7P. Hallicii WUUams,in the Gentleman's Magazine
Considerable exaggeration has been perpe
trated in reference to the adulteration of bread
with alum. Tho quantity actually used is
very small, and tho question whether the term
adulteration is fairly applicable to such addi
tion is a debatable one. From tho baker's
point of view it is not an adulteration but an
improvement. He is fairly justified in main
taining that if the alum which bo adds is an
adulteration, so also is the salt and tho. baking
powder which are added to home-baked broad.
According toTomlinson the proportion of alum
commonly used is but two ounces to a sack of
flour, weighing 290 pounds. As one sack of
flour is with water made into 80 four-pound
loaves, the quantity of alum to each pound of
bread is but 1-1G0 of an ounce, or 1-25G0 part.
Oddly enough in this case the baker supposes
himself to bo more guilty than ho really is.
He purchases what is called "stuff," or " rocky,"
in packets, supposing it to be ground alum.
Tomiinsou finds that it consists of three parts
of common salt to ono of alum. Half a pound
of ibis is added to a sack of flour. Tho mode
of action of this minute quantity of alum is a
chemical conundrum not yot answered, but it
actually does improve tho appearance of the
bread. Batch bread made of ordinary flour
without alum has a lumpy fracture when tho
loaves are pulled apart, or the bread otherwise
broken; the alum renders tho fracture inoro
silky. I have recently observed that the batch,
or household, loaves commonly sold in Edin
biirg show a more silky and in flat fracture
than London loaves, aud attribute this to tho
uso of more alum. It may be that the Scotch
bakers prepare their own "rocky," omitting
the common salt. In Belgium and Northern
France sulphate of copper is added to improve
tho appearance of bread ; 1-1500 to 1-3000 part
has a psrceptible effect. It is said that the
base of this and of alum combines with tho
gluten and renders it indisoluble, but this the
ory doos not explain the mystery of the effi
cacy of so small a quantity! Pure flour con
tains alumina. JTr. A. H. Allen, comparing
the results of his own analysis with those of
other chemists, estimates the average quantity
of natural alumina to correspond to about eight
grains of alum in the four-pound loaf, which
nearly corresponds to Tomlinsou's allowanco
for tho bakor.

keepers. I have seen Indian servants doing all sorts
of work and showing unlimited patience. An
Indian six feet in hight will devoto himself
with equal calm and perseverance to preparing
a curry or walking up and down to quiet a
peevish while baby. Whether Indian servants
are as satisfied with the Queen as sho is with
them is a question, as her noted fondness for
unlimited fresh air must be rather unpleasant
for them in this climate. In fact, it is very
unpleasant eveu for many of the Queen's Eng
lish attendants.
Many ecclesiastical dignitaries who havo
been honored by an invitation to visit the
Queen have grcaued at being sent for in the
dead of the night in an open carriage, and the
Queen's regular physician intimated recently
that he would have to throw up his post if com
pelled to go about at night in a dog cart. Even
in this weather the Queen thinks nothing of
driving from Windsor to Frogmorc in the morn
ing aud breakfasting under a teut with the
wind blowing in her face. Several of the ladies
in waiting, wlro havo to go about and do the
same, are reported to be suffering from very
severe colds, which is natural.

Tho lucky hero of this ad venture is a District
Superintendent of Police in Berar. Ho is well
remembered in Secunderabad as Superintendent
of tho Cantonment Police before Mr. Crawford.
A son or Colonel Hastings Eraser, one of tho
Frasers of Lovatt, ho has proved his possession
of thafc.nerve aud courage which rise to tho
emergency of danger on which qualities more
than all else the British Empire in India has
been built, and ou which, after all is said, in
tho last resort, it must be still held to rest. To
quote the graphic account of a correspondent,
the escape was about as narrow as man ever
had. Mr. Fraser wa3 told by his Orderly that
a wounded tigor was lying apparently dead on
tho root of a treo. The Orderly having called
him up, ho went to tho spot. Mr. Eraser then
sent the Orderly and another man with his sec
ond gun back, aud knelt down to look. Just
then tho tiger roared, and camo at him from
about 18 feet off. Ho waited until tho tigor
was within five feet of him and fired. As tho
tiger did not drop, ho fired his second shot hur
riedly. Tho first shot had hit exactly in tho
center of the face, but just an inch too low. It
knocked tho tiger's right eyo out, and smash
ed all tho teeth of thatsidoof tho jaw. Tho
second shot struck tho tigor in tho chest, but
too low.
What happened then Mr. Fraser does not ex
actly know, but ho next found himself lying iu
front of the tiger, one claw of tho beast's right
foot being hooked into his left leg, in this way
trying to draw Mr. Fraser toward him; tho
other paw was on his right leg. Mr. Frasor's
chin and coat wero covered with foam from tho
beast's mouth. Ho tried hard to draw himself
out of tho tiger's clutches. Fortuuately tho
beast was not ablo to see him, as Mr. Fraser was
a littlo to ono sido of tlio animal's blind side,
and tho tiger's head wa3 up. Suddonly, sooing
Mr. Frasor's Orderly bolting, ho jumped up
and went for the man, and catching him, ho
killed him on the spot. Mr. Fraser had lost
hat, riflo and all hla cartridges, which had
tumbled out of Ms pocket. Ho jumepd up,
however, and ran to tho man who had his scc
oud gun, and to do so had to go within eight
paces of tho spot where tho tiger was crouching
over his Orderly. Ho heard, in fact, the
crunching of the man's bones, and saw tho tiger
biting the back of tho head. Ho now took tho
gun from his man. Tho latter said that he had
fired both barrels into the tiger one when ho
was crouching over Mr. Eraser, aud tho other
whou ho was over tho prostrate body of tho
Orderly. The man had fired well aud true, but
just too far back in his auxiety not to hit the
mon ho would havo sayed instead of tho tiger.
When afterward asked if ho was not afraid to
hit the Sahib, " I was, very much afraid in
deed," ho replied, "but dil raazbut karko
Gagaya: I nerved myself for the occasion."
"A good man and truo I " a high officer writes,
" who after firing, never moved au inch till Mr.
Eraser came to him, although.oloso to tho tiger
all the while. Ho is ono of, tho Gawilghur
llnj puis a bravo race,, liaujijt Siugh, a good
name." Tho man said ho had no cartridges
left, and so they both got a littlo further from
the tiger, as tho Orderly was ovidently done
for. Afterward thoy found ono more cartridge
for lhagun, and tried to recover the body, but
it was no use. Tho tiger was lying close, most
of the buffaloes had bolted, and tho Kurkpos
would not help. Mr.Frasorthen sentsix miles
off for an elephant. But tho auimal did not ar
rive till dark, so Mr. Eraser went homo in
groat grief about the poor Orderly and at hav
ing to leave the body. His own wound was
bleeding a great deal, it being a deep claw
gash. Noxt day they got the body and tho
tiger dead, lying close to each othor. Perhaps
no narrower escape than Mr, Eraser's has over
been heard of. To tho excellent shot which
knocked the beast's oyo out ho undoubtedly
owed bis life.

bo soon that all discipliuo would bo gone and

quired an explanation of tho reason why ho
was dispatched in a particular direction or or
dered to do a certain thing. Now and then
tltero is an opportunity which au officer cm
braces for acting on his own hook without or

tates lest ho lays himself opeu to censure, aud
possibly court-martial and punishment, as he
surely would if subsequent ovonts showed his
action to have been injudicious or disastrous.
The hattlo turned out to be no battle at all
only a skirmish with some bushwhackers, iu
which a dozon shots or so were exchanged and
nobody was hurt. The advance of tho column
had come upon a group of mon, some mounted
ami others on foot, near a bend in the road where
almall stream was crossed. The sight of the
soldiers had disturbed tho group; those who
had horses rode away as fast as they could go,
while the fellows on foot male tho best of their
way into the bushes, where they sought con
cealment. Thoy did notobey tho ordor to halt,
whereupon a few shots wero fired at thorn,
which they returned.
Tiio shots only sorvod to quicken their pace,
and in u very short timenothiag wa3 to bo seen
of the fugitives. The Quartermaster explained
to tho youths that tho term "bushwhacker"
was applied to the mon who were straggling
about tho country with arms iu their hands,
and did not appear to belong to any regularly
organized body of soldiery.
" Missouri," said ho, " is full of bushwhack
ers, and thoro'll bo more of 'em as the war goes
on. They're not to bo feared by a regularly
organized force, but can mako the roads quite
unsafo for ordinary travel. Tho trouble is, a
man may be a peaceful farmer one day, a bush
whacker tho noxt, and a peaceful farmer again
on tho third. The robcls encourage this sort
of fighting, as it will cornpol us to maintain a
large force to koon the roads open as wo ad

PROJI JEFFEP.SON TO KOONKVlbLE PIKST BAT
TLE IX MISSOURI.
Let us now return to Gen. Lyon, whom wo
left at Jefferson City, which ho had occupied
without opposition. Tho Union mon gave him
a hearty wolcomo, while tho Secessionists re
ceived him with many a frown.
Maj. Conant, of Gen. Lyon's staff, visited tho
penitentiary, which was full of convicts, who
cheered heartily as ho entered. Thoy had
hoped to bo liberated when tho rebels left town,
and no doubt would have been willing to enter
the service as a condition of getting outsido the
stone walls that -surrounded them. They hail
bcon Secession in sentiment, but finding tho
rebels had gone without them they suddenly
changed their politics and shouted lustily for
tho fjnion when tho officer representing tho
authority of the United States came among
them. A few only held out and cheered for
Jell' Davis and Gov. Jackson, probably for tho
reason that they believed in Secession, and es
pecially in secession from whero they were.
There wa3 gloom all around when thoy found
that Gen. Lyon had no intontion of setting
thorn free, and that the solo object of the visit
ot Maj. Conant was to seo tnat tho prison was
properly guarded, and ascertain that no work
on behalf of the rebels was
there.
boiug carried on
Tho editor of tho Examiner, a newspaper
which had been advocating Secession in the
moat Violent manner, called upon Gen. Lyon,
and said ho had been a Union man always, and
was in favor of keeping thoStnto in tho Union,
though ho had thought differently only a short
timo before. Thoro were several cases of
equally sudden conversion, but tho General
did not consider those professions of patriotism
anything rnoro than skin deep. Missouri wa3
full of mon of this sort mon who woro in
favor of the rebellion at heart, but in presence
of tho Union flag wero tho most profound
Unionists that the country over saw. Aud this
reminds us of a little story.
There was in north Missouri a noisy Seces
sionist named M. Jeff Thompson. Ho took tho
field soon after tho war broke out, and kept up
a sort of guerrilla warfare in tho southeastern
part of tho State and aloug tho Arkansas border
for a year or more. Thou he joined tho army
of Gen. Polk, and after an absence of several
months returned to his former fighting-ground
and one day wa3 captured.
He was brought to St. Louis, and while there
was visited by an old friend. "They're a toUgh
lot of people down thero on tho border between
Missouri and Arkausas,' said Gen. Thompson;
"and I don't oxactly liko the way they act.
When I was there last year they were all solid
for tho South, and I thought I'd find 'em so
yet. When I was being brought along as a
prisoner they'd como out to talk to me when
thoy had a chance. Whou I asked 'om how
thoy stood, and if they wero solid as over, hang
'em, but thoy had to look at thoir note-book3
to see which oath of allegiance thoy took last."
Another good story is told about Jeff Thomp
son aud a proclamation which ho issued to the
peoplp when ho camo back to renew his old
stylo of warfare. After speaking very hope
fully of the prospects of the Southern cause, ho
declared that his army was liko the sand3 of
Uthcsea; that it was well armed and equipped
lor making war upon tho ouomy, and as to pro
visions, it had cattlo on a thousand hills.
When tho proclamatiou was read to an old
woman in whoso locality somo of Thompson's
forces had been stationed, sho remarked :
" Well, I'm glad Mr. Thompson has cattlo on
a thousand hills. Ho won't want to steal my
swamp cattlo a3 he used to."
But to return to Jefferson City. As soon as
it was positively known that the fleeing robcls
had decided to make a stand at Boonoville,
which was about 40 mile3 from Jefferson City,
Gon. Lyon started .in pursuit of them. Load
ing his troops on three steamboats, with tho
exception of three companies of infantry, which
were left to hold possession of Jefferson City,
he started up the Missouri early ou the after
noon of Sunday, Juno 16, and by sunset reached
a point 10 or 12 milos below Boonovillo, whero
it was decided to tio up for tho night. Bright
and early tho next morning tho steamers
moved on, and wero brought to tho bank of tho
river six or seven miles below Booueville.
Tho rebels had formed a camp, known as
Camp Vest, about half-way betweou this land
ing place and tho town, and as they had sev
eral cannon there, it was not doomed advisable
to movo tho steamboats within their range
until the infantry or artillery of the land forces
had inado a demonstration.
In tho gray of tho morning tho troops wero
landed, and tho bank of the river presented a
sceno to which it was quite unaccustomed.
Officers wero hurrying about hero and there ;
companies were endeavoring to assemble, as
they had become a good deal scattered in tho
hurry of getting on shore; tho artillery was
dragged up tbcsteop slope of tho bank with a
vast deal of shouting ou tho part of tho drivers,
including a liberal amount of language that is
not usually found in theological works; tho
saddlc-hsipes of the officers dauced around in
endeavoring to show thoir satisfaction at get
ting on laud again, and some of them escaped
from tho Orderlies who wero holding them and
wero retaken with difficulty. Altogether it
Was a picture long to bo romombercd by thoso
who saw it.
Thero was no cavalry in tho expedition, with
tho exception of Gen. Lyon's body-guard of
eight or ton Germans who had been specially
enlisted for this purpose. Theso men, previous
to thoir onlistment, had beou employed in a
butchering establishment in St. Louis. Tho
story got abroad that German butchers had
beou enlisted for tho Union army, aud, as usual,
it was maguified with each repetition until it
seemed that every man who woro the National
uniform was a professional spiller of blood.
Out of this circumstance grew tho most ter
rific predictions as to what tho butchers would
do whou thoy got possession of a placo or
ma'rehed through any part of tho State, and it
was for this reason, among others, that so mauy
people fled in terror when thoy hoard that tho
Union army was coming. Gen. Lyon's butch
ers were as well behaved as the most fastidious
commander could desire; thoy woro good sol
diers, obediont to their commander, aud would
not harm a fly except in tho performance of
their logitimato duty.
Before 7 o'clock iu tho morning tho column
was in motion, the cavalry squad in advance
aud skirmishers thrown out for half a milo or
so on cither side. Very soon nftor leaving tho
landing-place tho road ascended a scries of un
dulating hills or ridges, and the advance had
not gouo far on this road beforo the pickets of
tho enemy wero driven in. Then one of tho
cavalrymen rode hastily back and Baid that
tho wholo force of the State troops were drawn

commanded by Capt. Totfcen took position in
the middio of the road on one of the ridges in
full view of tho enemy on the other side of a
wheatfield that filled the greater part of tho
hollow from ridge to ridge. On the ridge held
hy the enemy the road was filled with horse
men, while the mon on foot were deployed to
right and left, slightly protected hy fences that
divided the fields.
Capt. Tot ten ttnlimhered a 12-pounder gau
and sent a shell right in the midst of the group
of horsemen in the road.
To say that the shell kicked up a great dost
is to describe the result very mildly. It not
only kicked up a dnst but it set all the horses
to kicking up, and though it did not kill any
body, as far as was afterwards ascertained, it
emptied a dozen saddles by the rearing and
plunging of the steeds. None of them had
over seen anything of the kind before. It
takes a hardened old horse to stand an explod
ing shell, aud even then there's some doubt as
to whether he will be quiet .under such trying
circumstances. But when a mob of green
horses gets a shell lanched among them as
that 12-pound missile was dropped, something
is sure to happen.
Half a dozen of tho horses came dashing
across the space between tho lines, and were
caught as they came among the Union soldiers.
Two newspaper correspondents each caught a
horse, and these enterprising historians who
had gone to the front to tell the story of tho
campaign, came well mounted out of a fight
which they had entered on foot. They got not
only horses but saddles as well, and one of thorn
secured a pair of well-filled saddle-bags, in
which was a quantity of Quo underclothing,
that, unhappily, was too small for him.
The opening shot of tho artillery was rapidly
followed by others, and then the small-arms
added their noise to the firing. Of course the
rebels by this time were doing their best, and the
bullets flew thickly, but as is always the case
in battle, most of them were aimed too high.
Hero and thero a man was wonnded, hut as
Gen. Lyon had ordered all-who were not actu
ally engaged to keop cut of range no harm was
done outside tho fighting line, and even there
the bloodshed was slight.
In 20 minutes from the timo the first shot
was fired tho robel3 wero in full retreat and
the Unionists were following them. Not only
were the rebels in retreat, hut they were scat
tered and a good deal demoralized. In justico
to them it should be said that no commander
ever yet existed who could keep his men com
pletely together in time of flight under an
enemy's fire. Of course veterans will act better
than green troops, but ovou the hardiest of vet
erans will straggle under such circumstances.
The fugitives made no stand until they
reached their camp, and even there they did
not tarry long. A few rounds of bullets and
some shots from the artillery set them aain in
flight, which was considerably aided by one of
the steamboats that had moved up from the
landing-place and fired two or three rounds
from a howitzer just as it reached a point op
positeJhe camp. ' Cannon to theright of them,
cannon in front of them," as the Light Brigade
had at Balaklava, was too much for the rebel
troops to stand.
There was something ludicrous in the appear
ance of the camp, as it bore evidence of a very
hasty departure on the part of its late occn
pauts. Meat was in the frying-pans on ihe
fire, half-baked beans filled tho eamp-oveng,
and pots of unboiled coffee were standing
ready for the attentions of the cook. On tho
ground lay a ham with a slice half severed
and a knife still sticking in the meat. Thocamp
chest of some of the officers was all spread for
breakfast, but those who had expected to take
their morning meal there were now in rapid
flight for safety.
A cooked breakfast should not be wasted, so
some of our fellows thought, aud they set about
dovouring what the fugitives had loft. Tents
were standing, piles of provisions were heaped
up, a good many rifles and other weapons were
scattered ou the ground, and altogether the
captors made a satisfactory seizure. Oneof the
oflieers found several hundred dollars iu a
trunk in one of the tents aud thoughtfully pus
the money in his pocket, in order, as he said,
to hand it to tho owuer in case he should ever
meet and recognize him.
