THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0., THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER, 13 1838.
no -winter wlien laid ont for burial than
they were that morning. In a sliorl time
they got tlie line started out eo vre could do
Eomothing. "We soon found out that Jolm
sloa was in our front with large part of
life army, and instead of capturing Atlanta
so easily ive stood a pretty good snow of
going to Andersonville.
In s. few minutes

on oar right, and for the next two or three
hours we ave Johnny all he wanted. "We
gradually forced theni hack over the hill
into their intrenchments. "We then coni
aionced throwing up works, and by night
we had a line sufficiently strong to resist
any force they might bring against it
Oa the afternoon of the next day they
concluded to try us again, just for luck I
presume, for it proved to be an old-fashioned
killing. The attack covered the Fifteenth
and a part of the Sixteenth Corps, and
-nrovfld ia he one of the grandest charges
made by the Confederates during the At
lanta campaign.
A few minutes after tlie repulse John A.
Logaa came riding down the line, with his
hat in his hand, looking like the very god
of war. No one can describe how Logan
looked in battle any more than he could de
scribe the raging sea. I am satisfied that
the biggest coward in ihe world would
stand oa his head on top of the breastworks
if Logaa was present and told him to do so.
Johnston may have been a good General,
but we failed"i see where he displayed any
Tory great amount of ability on that cam
paign. He usually waited for us to take up
our position on his front and build works,
when the killing would commence. It was
by such generalship on their part and supe
rior generalship oa ours that we succeeded
ia destroying an army of 87,000 men in eight
months.
The next morning after the attack on our
works our brigade was relieved and sent
back about a mile to rest and to get some
deep. It being Sunday, we had emptied
our knapsacks to air their contents, and had
neglected to pack them before going to bed.
Tbat nigkt at 11 o'clock they again at
tacked the works with redoubled fury. "We
were
OKDSEKD TO FALL IS"
and march to the front immediately. "While
trying t pack our knapsacks we found that
a two-buefeel sack wouldn't hold their con
tests. My pea is too feeble to describe the scene
that night. It was simply terrifying. The
woods were full of stragglers going to the
rear, while the balls going through the
leaves overhead sounded like a heavy rain
falling. "When we got down where we could
see the works it was the grandest pyrotech
nic display I have ever seen.
The musketry-fire looked like innumer
able candles get along on top of the works,
while the artillery was throwing fire 100
yards from the guns, illuminating the
heavens until you could see the men in ihe
works.
It reminded me of a picture I had seen
when a boy, where there was a lot of lit
tle devils carrying wood for the big devil,
ami piling it around a bad man who had
starved his mother. The movement of the
men in and out of the smoke looked like
they were helping the old man with his
fires.
It began to dawn upon us that we were in a
tight place, and that we would have trouble
to get on fc. To do so we had to build several
lines of works in our rear, leading off toward
Big Shanty. It was a terrible sight in front
of the works next morning. Everything
that was standing within 100 yards of the
line was mowed down as clean as a stubble
iicid. It was unsafe to show a head above
the works while we stayed there, so we
never knew how many were killed that
night.
To withdraw an armv in the presence of
a superior force requires a certain amount of
generalship, but

to the works in sight of the enemy, while
they and the troops were brought back
through a ravine leading to the Tear, taking
a position in the new works. "Within 10
minutes after we moved out the Johnnies
took poseoauon, cheering as lustily as if they
had captured the entire Yankee army. "We
moved by easy stages to Big Shanty, the
enemy all the while keeping at a respectful
distance.
Oar flank movement was successful, but
it might, have been different with an abler
man in Johnston's place. I think that if
" Uncle Billy " had had command of the
rebels at Aliatoona tbat he would have capt
ured the Arm v of the Tennessee at Dallas.

A Union soldier by the name of John Uerhst
was oapharcd and imprisoned at Audersoarille.
To escape the almost certain death in that no
torious prisoQ pen he enlisted ia the Confed
erate army, intending to escape and join bis
fellows. He was canto red by the Union forces,
and after service a second lime was dishonors,
bly discharged, and died of disease contracted
in the service. Congress saw fit to pension his
widow, who is poor and in need. President
Cleveland vetoed tbe bill on the high patriotic
proond that tbe soldier at one time deserted.
He has beets largely applauded for the act by
a otrtaiu class; bat they fell to mention that
tbe President turned right about from bis prin
ciple and appointed F. C. Armstrong to the
important post of Indian Inspector. This man
Armstrong was also reported deserter from tbe
Union army. " fie was a voluntary deserter,"
says a writer, " immediately after the battle of
Bull Ran, and served in the rebel army until
the close of tbe war." Does tbe President ptm

POWDERLTS PLAN.
TLo General 3Iastcr-TVorknian Talks Some Ilanl
Common Sense to the Imestlgatinff Committee.
General Blaster-Workman Powderly appear
ed before the Congressional Committee on Im
migration at New York and was examined for
two hours.
Mr. Powdcrly began by stating that be was
a resident of Scranton, Pa., and General Master-Workman
of the Knights of Labor. Before
bis election to that ofiico he bad been a ma
chinist. "The Order,"' continued Mr. Pow
dcrly, " has spread all over the world, and we
have branches iu evory country except China.
In Great Britain especially the Order is in a
very flourishing condition."
" What class of persons, Mr. Powderly, aro
eligible for membership in tho Order of the
Knights of Labor?"
" Well, we take all men wbo work at manual
labor. Wo exclude all rum-sellers, those who
arc engaged in anyway in the manufactnro or
sale of rura, barkeepers, and rich people. Bank
ors are not eligible, neither aro lawyers, pro
fessional politicians nor loafers."
"What do you mean what is your definition
of a professional politician?"
" A man who lies around and does nothing
whatever, who stands around on election day
with his hands stretched out for money a
species of political heeler and striker.
"For the last 12 months," continued Mr.
Powdcrly, "I have been traveling all over tho
United States. I go to all parts of tho country
in the interest of my Order, and have had many
chances to study the condition of the working
men. I have given much thought to the sub
ject of immigration in this country during tho
last eight years. I have found from my own
observation that the social status of the work
ingman has deteriorated, and iu every part has
become bad on account of this flood of emigra
tion and the contract system. Its tendency is
to degenerate and degrade morals. I do not
think and do not say that emigration degrades
the morals of those wbo come that is, I mean
to say that the morals of those who come under
the contract system are so degraded that it
tends to pollute tho morals of others who have
come here before of their own free will. These
contract immigrants have hut little morals when
they arrive, and still less while they remain.
They are induced by agents abroad to come
here, and they aro told that they will receive
good wages. An agent of mine who was abroad
lastyear saw large boards hung up in all the
large cities of Europe with huge posters on
them setting forth in every language induce
ments to emigrants to come to America. Ameri
can railroads would employ this method of ad
vertising freely, inducing people to como and
settle along the lines of their road, offering
cheap homos and lands. This is one system of
inducing immigration. The other i3 done by
the agents of American manufacturers abroad.
These men promise high wages and cheap pas
sage out.
HOW THE MENKES LIVE.
"The result of this system I found practi
cally illustrated in the United States. I found
in 1SS2, in tho town of Frostburg, Md., at what
is knows as the Eckcrt Mines, au instance of
this system. I was admitted within an in
closure, which was surrounded by a high board
fence, to the mouth of tho mine, about the
bight of this wall, probably a foot or two
higher; this inclosed the mine. Inside was a
long, low, wooden building; I should call it a
shed. In that building I found five rows of
bunks. The first one was about 18 inches from
the floor. It was two foot six inches wide and
six leot six inches in lengtu. une mattress
was of straw, and covered o'er with black and
blue ticking; atlcastt had been white and
blue ticking originally, but it was all black
when I saw it, and fully alive to the situation.
I saw one Hungarian there were 150 in tho
mine; this man walked on crutches. Ho had
broken his leg some time before. That man
had no assistant. His leg was so offensive as
to keep people away from him. Ho reeled into
his bunk filthy, his bandages dirty, covered
with vermin, and withont undressing. He
made no pretense of washing. I saw men como
in to the table dirty and filthy and sit down to
a meal of s&lfc pork and water, the pork ex
tremely lively, without even washing their
hands. These are the men who come to take
tho places of the American workingmen, who
canse the reduction of wages. So tbat when
the workingman strikes these men are brought
to take his place. They succeed in breaking
the backbone of tho strike, while they work
for less than an American can afford. There
were, I believe, 105 Hungarian who lived there
in that shed."
WOODED SHOKS AKO FILTH.
"Did you remain that night until the men
went to bed?"
"I did. They would como into the sheds
dirty and filthy, and somo of them, those who
had modern shoes, would take off these shoes,
and then, without washing or undressing,
would cast themselves dirty on their filthy
beds. They make these shoes themselves from
the timber of the trees that they find growing
in the neighborhood. They do this rather
than give the work to an American shoemaker.
I have one of these shoes now at my house in
Scranton. As I said before, the men with the
wooden shoes tske them off. As to their
clothes, they must have been made in their
native land. They never take them off, and
bad not, I heard, since they had bean iu the
mine. Tbe few that had leather shoes did not
take them off.
"This wholesale importation of immigrant
labor has the effect of thoroughly demoralizing
the workingmen of this country. The miner
who has been shoved out of the mines by these
men seeks employment in other towns. The
bottom rung of the ladder is shaken.- Inferior
men arc placed in shops and factories. Tho
discharged miner leaves home to manipulate
machinery, so that he can get somo kind of
occupation. He will work lower than the
skilled workman, and the mechanic goes down
to the bottom. Until 1873 the immigration
was of a different class. People then camo of
their free will. Where I was born there wore
many immigrants, principally Irish, Welsh and
English. They all prospered and owned their
own homes. But with the present class tho
American workman is driven out. He cannot
compete with them. He cannot live on corn
meal and salt pork. I met a Moravian woman
some years ago in Cleveland. She was quite
intelligent and spoke English. Many of them
never learn the language. She was living in a
bouse with eight men, did their housework,
and served the double purpose of wife and
housekeeper to them. 1 asked tho woman why
she lived such a life. She said tho had no
alternative. If she married one of the men she
would starve, bat with eight she could get
enough to live on, aud besides there was no
danger of her raising a family."
THE BKASS CHSCK SYSTEM.
Mr. Powderly continued : "T had occasion a
short time ago to take a trip on the Pennsyl
vania lioau between rhilauelphia and Xiew
York. I found a lot of Italian laborers work
ing on the road who were identified simply by
brass checks bearing numbers attached to &
leather belt at the back of their trousers. When
you called them by-iheir names they did not
know what their names were. The number on
their checks corresponded to a number on tho
pay-book, aud if they lost the check it was a
ease of no check, no pay. I have heard that
agents of tbe road frequently stole the checks
and cheated these poor creatures of their pay.
"I would have every mau who becomes an
American citizen speak the English tongue.
He should be able to read and undorstand the
Declaration of Independence srtid the Constitu
tion. I should have our American Consuls
abroad examine into the character of every one
who comes here, and make every emigrant file
an application some time before ho comos for
tbe purpose of this examination. The Pardee
Company m Pennsylvania is responsible for a
number of these Hungarians. Their em
ployees do not know how to read, and cannot
decipher the words 'danger' at the heads or
hazardous places in the mines, and often work
to thoir deaths and cause the deaths of others.
Their morals are loose, and they become more
so tbe longer they stay. They work uudor tho
lash like horses. The contract system has been
the cause of demoralizing the American work
ingman. There are now 1,000,000 of men un
employed in the United States. Tho man who
brings over contract laborers should be dealt
severely with. He makes $5,000, and can easily
afford to pay $1,000 fine. As a rule, tho class of
Hungarians and Iteliaus who come over here
by contract are very undesirable. My father
was an immigrant. Ho came over with a shill
ing in his pocket, but he raised a family of 12
and did, something for his country. Men who
come to stay aud oarn their livings--ira wel
comed by us. Put unlss-s man comes of his
t own free will l?o don't want him. As far as
tuft Chinese aro concerned, tho Knights of
Labor do not encourage them. Wo object to
them. Still we have somo Chinese Knights of
Labor. There aro six or seven in this city.
But they are civilized, educated and become
un-Chinese, The class who come, as a rule, aio-
inforior to those who camo 20 years ago. They
aro not as intelligent, asiudustrious nor as well
able to take care of themselves. The causo of
their coming is advertising in all languages
and the cheapening of rates."
EDUCATION THE EEMEDY.
"What is tho heading object of your organi
zation, Mr. Powdcrly?"
"The Knights of Labor havo for thoir object
tho protection of labor. Wo would educate tho
workman so that ho can become a partner with
his omployor, showing tho profits of his labor
on a basis of co-operation. Thcso contract la
borers can never bo educated."
LAST CHARGE OF THE "WAR
3rado at Appomattox on a South Carolina Bri
gade. JFVont a posthumous article of Gen, Sheridan in the
September North American Review.
Beyond us, in a low valloy (near Appomat
tox Courthouse, aftor my flank movement) lay
Lee and the remnant of his army. There did
not appear to be much organization, except in
tho advanced troops under Gen. Gordon, whom
wo had been fighting, and a roar-guard under
Gen. Longstrcet still further up the valley.
Formations wcro immediately begun to make
a bold and sweeping chargo down the grassy
slope, when an Aid-de-Camp from Custor, filled
with excitement, hat in hand, dashed up to
me with tho message from his chief: " Lee has
surrendered! Do not chargo; the white flag
is up!" Orders wero given to complete the
formation, but not to charge.
Looking to the left, to Appomattox Court
house, a large group was seen near by the lines
of Confederate troops that had fallen back to
that point. Gen. Custer had not como back,
and, supposing that ho was with tho group at
tho courthouse, I moved on a gallop down the
narrow ridge, followed by my staff. Tho court
house was, perhaps, three-fourths of a rnilo dis
tant. We had not gone far before a heavy firo
was opened on us from a skirt of timber to our
right, and distant not much over 300 yards. I
halted for a moment and, taking off my hat,
called out that tho flag was being violated, but
could not stop the firing, which now caused us
all to tako shelter in a ravine running parallel
to tho bridgo we were on, and down which we
then traveled. As wo approached the court
house a gentle ascent had to bo made. I was in
advance, followed by a Sergeant carrying my
battleflag. Within 100 to 150 yards from the
courthouse and Confederate lines somo of the
men in their ranks brought down their guns
to aim on us, and great effort was made by
their officers to keep them from firing. I halt
ed, and, hearing somo noise behind, turned in
the saddlo and saw a Confederate soldier at
tempting to take my battleflag from the Color
bearer. This tho Sergeant had no idea of sub
mitting to, and had drawn his saber to cut the
man down. A word from mo caused him to
return hi3 saber and take tho flag back to tho
staff officers, who woro somo little distance be
hind. I remained stationary aftor these events,
then calling a staff officer directed him to go
over to the group of Confederate officers aud
demand what such conduct meant. Kind
apologies were made, and wo advanced. Tho
superior officera met were Gen. J. B. Gordon
and Gen. Cadmus M. Wilcox, tho latter an old
Army officor. As soon as tho first greeting was
over a furious firing began in front of our own
cavalry, from whom we had only a fow min
utes beforo separated. Gen. Gordon seemed to
bo somewhat disconcerted by it. I remarked
to him, "Gen. Gordon, your men fired on mo
as I was coming over bore, and undoubtedly
they have done tho same to Morritt's and Cus
ter's commands. Wo might just as woll let
them fight it out." To this proposition Gen.
Gordon did not accede. I then asked, " Why
not send a staff officer and havo your people
n.fntift iirinrr? Tlnvtr nm lnlnftiifr t.hn flnfr!"
He said, "I havo no staff officer to send." I
replied, "I will let you havoono of mine," and
calling for Lieut. Vaudcrbilt Allen ho was di
rected to report to Gen. Gordon and carry his
orders. Tho orders were to go to Gen. Geary,
who wa3 in command of a small brigade bf
South Carolina cavalry, and ask him to discon
tinue the firing. Lieut. Allen dashed off with
the message, but on delivering ifc to Gen. Geary
was taken prisoner, with the Teraark from that
officer that he did not care for white flags;
that South Caroliuians never surrendered.
It was about this timo that Merritt, getting
impatient at tho supposed treacherous firing,
ordered a charge of a portion of his command.
While Geti3. Gordon and Willcox wero engaged
in conversation with mo, a. cloud of dust, a wild
hurrah, a flashing of sabers, indicated a chargo,
and tho ojaculatiousof my staff officers were
heard: "Look! Merritt hasordcrcd a chargo!"
The Hight of Geary's brigade followed; Lieut.
Allen was thus released. The last gun had
been fired and the last charge made in tho
Virginia campaign.
Tast Improvement in 3Iorals.
We hnd people talking about political cor
ruption as though it were a now thing. Tho
historians, on tho contrary, can point to no
period and no country in which politics wcro
not corrupt. Wo lament tho prevalence of
vico; but tho time was, and within a hundred
years, too, when vice was fashionable and pop
ular, not execrated.
Of Charles James Fox, one of tho ablest
men in England a hundred years ago, it was
truly remarked that ho affected nothing but
vice, and tbat he had tho ambition to surpass
all men in that particular, as well as in others.
He last $700,000 in gambling before ho was 21
years old, and lived in open and notorious
vice. But this did not affect his standing in
society in the least. It did not prevent his
being tho first man in tho Houso of Commons,
nor bar his entrance into the Cabiuet, nor
lose him the regard of the most virtuous of his
contemporaries.
Tho progress of decency, too, has been most
remarkable. Eighty years ago passages wero
printed in popular books aud respectable news
papers, nay, read aloud iu respectable families,
tho publication of which would now subject
the publisher to prosecution. Wc are not sure
that poor Richard's Almanac would now bo
permitted to bo sold, so Incredibly indecent are
are some of its articles. 'But it was a house
hold book a hundred years ago.
We might continue the enumeration, and
show that in every respect man is Better, and
better off, now than over ho was before. Bead tho
memoirs, biographies, letters, newspapers, al
manacs and popular books of the last century,
if you would appreciate properly tho much
calumniated Nineteenth. N. Y. Ledger.

Curicns Tilings About Eggs.
All the world and his cosmopolitan wife and
family like new-laid eggs. Nor do we depre
cate their tasto; on the contrary, wc share it,
Tho relish of eggs is honorable, and to prefer
them fresh evinces a due appreciation of the
"fitness of things." Tradition runneth not
back to the time when eggs iu this condition
weio of evil repute, although the use of tho
stale variety as a missile has never been popu
lar with the recipients. Probably tho antedi
luvians wcro fond of eggs, for we aro given to
understand that they feasted high; and what
would a banquet bo without "the fruit of the
hen"?
That the Egyptians woro fond of eggs is
beyond poradveuturo, for one of our archaeolo
gists brought home with him from Egypt somo
dozens which had been at least 3,000 years in
tho catacombs, having been placed there for
tho accommodation of tho mummies, in caso
they should wako up and feel peckish. These
eggs, cackled over by tho hens that flourished
in the time of the early Pharaohs laid prob
ably before tho children of IsraoKmade their
exodus by way of tho Red Sea wo have soon,
and many of them arc as perfect externally as
if thoy had been bought in market yesterday;
but although Egyptian wheat of tho samo date
is said to havo germinated and reproduced it
self, wo aro not awaro that any of the eggs of
that ilk have been sot upon and hatched.
Tho Chinese arc tho greatest ogg-oaters in
the world. Thoy raise more poultry than all
the other nations of tho earth taken together,
and have a way of keeping eggs for 40 years or
more in a sound condition. The older the eggs
the more valuable they are; and it is a trick
of the Chinese grocer to ring iu fresh eggs on
his customers wheucver ho can get a chance to
cheat thcra in that way.

SHERIDAN'S MEMOIRS.
The rrefnee to Ills Story of His Own Tart In tho
Great CiTll War.
Tho profaco to Gen. Sheridan's Memoirs has
been made public, and is as follows:
When, yielding to the solicitations of my friends,
I finally decided to write thcso memoirs, tho great
est dilliculty which confronted mo was that of re
counting my share in the ninny notable events of
the last thrco decades in which I played n part,
without entering too fully into the history of those
years, and at tho sarao linjo without giving: my
own nets nn unmerited prominence. To whnt ex
tent 1 havo oycrcomo the difficulty I must leave
tho reader to judge.
In offering this record, penned by my own hand,
of the events of my life, and of my participation in
our great struggle for Nntlonnl existence, human
liberty and political equality, I make no pretension
to literary merit; tho importance of the subject
matter of my narrative is my only claim on tho
renders' attention.
Respectfully dedicating tills work to my com-r.idoH-in-arms
during tho war of tho rebellion, I
leave it asn heritage to mvchildrcn.nnd as nsoureo
L of information for the future historian.

A MIND OVERTHRO'WN.
Sad Instances or Eccentricity on tho Tart of Kirs.
Stowc.
Harriot Bcecher Stowo has been removed
from her long-time residence at Hartford to a
farmhouse near Sag Harbor, L. I. Her health
has becomo alarmingly bad, and this decline 3
accompanied by mental eccentricity. Always
original and characteristic, sho has now become
so peculiar that her relatives deem it best to
keep her in retirement for awhile. That sho
will recover from her physical illness is not
doomed likely, but her immediato demiso is
not looked for. Tho decrepitudo of old ago has
como upon her. She is stopping at the resi
dence of Capt. Lewis Corwin, an acquaintance
of half a lifetime and a brother of ono of tho
lato Henry Ward Beecher's stalwart parish
ioners. Sho is almost 76 years old. Until a few years
ago she retained her mental power to a sur
prising degree, but latterly it has declined, and
now she is littlo like hor former self. An over
estimate of her famous book, "Uncle Tom's
Cabin," has grown upon her, until she is unde
niably possessed of delusions. Her principal
hallucination is that "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was
as divinely inspired a work as tbo Bible; that
sho was merely a medium through which God
expressed his condemnation of human slavery.
California Land Frauds.
J. W. Whitson, Co. E, 13th Iowa, Selma, Colo.,
writes to denounce the frauds in California
lands that aro boing advertised in many papers.
Ho is especially denunciatory of ono which
offers to sell lands in Shelbyville, Fre3no Co.
While there is much good land in Fresno
County, tlioro is a great deal that is worthless.
In ouo instance a lady who had invested all her
money in land and in her passage to Shelby
ville, arrived tlicro without a cent, and the
charitable people of tho neighborhood had to
make up a purse to send her back homo. He
does not wish that any of tho comrades should
be defrauded by this suspicious advertisement.

SCIENTIFIC CHAT.
A. M". Pitman, an Englishman, of Canton,
China, recently bought a. sow with sis legs. The
front part of tho body ia simplc that Is, tho ani
mal has one head, ono thorax and two front legs.
Behind, all tho organs are double it having two
trunks, two tails and four hind legs. The French
Consul at Canton persuaded Mr. Pitman to let him
have this strange creature for the Paris Museum of
Natural History, whero it may lie seen. It is white,
with great black spots, and appears to be in perfect
health. Tho separation of tho two trunks seems
to begin after tho dorsal vertebra;: but the animal
is so fat that this cannot lo precisely determined.

The Towa Stato Board of Health says, in one of
its monthly bulletins: "Said a father who was re
turning from a Summer resort, "where he buried
four lovely children, who died of dlptheria, the re
sult of defective drainage and polluted water:
'That hotel-keeper is as guilty of murder of my
children as though he had shot them with a revol
ver.' As a matter of justice the father was right,
but in law, probably not; but the law ought to bo
such as to hold the keeper of a hotel or a public re
sort responsible for tho healthy condition of his
premises, and liable for neglect to provide pure air
and water for his guests."
A firm of watchmakers in london, who have
studied into the causes of tbe breaking of the main
springs of watches, say that "unreflecting people
fancy tney liavo broken tliespring by over-winding,
or in other words havo drawn asunder a piece of
steel by the forco of linger and thumb. But tho
springs breal: through a subtle molecular change
produced in the steel by atmospli eric causes. They
usually fly nsnnder a few hours after being wound.
at 3 or 1 o clot-k in the morning. Many watches
and clocks como to tho workshops for new springs
after a frost, but not until a thaw basset in; tslill
more come after thunder-storms."
Tho British ileilical Joutnal strongly advocates
the drinking of water at meals, and especially be
foro breakfast. It says that "when ingested during
meals, wuter may do good by washing out the di
gested food and by exposing the undigested part
more thoiougbly to the action of tho digestive fer
ments." and enumerates quite a catalog of benctits
to be derived by drinking water at meals.
The Philadelphia Medical llecord says " the vaga
ries of tho appetite are far beyond tho explanatory
science of physiology. We cannot tell why this
thing agrees with this individual, and at the same
time utterly destroys his brother. Tho

strictor steaks, and count monkeys and parrots a
very good meal. In tho West Indies baked snake
is a common dish. A curry of ants' eggs is a great
delicacy in Siam, and tho Cingalese cat the bees

THE LOST AMY.
(Continued from 1st page.)
origin and proverbially ignorant, while those
of Harry had como all the way from Iowa,
audhad tho benefit of a Northern training.
Whilo tho Northern mules might bo supposed
to havo a thrist for travel that would make
geographical facts sink doep into thoir hearte,
thoso of tho more southern Stato were content
to remain in thoir ignorance, and, like Jeff
Davis, " all they asked ws to be let alone."
" You'ro saying that in joke, of course," re
marked tho Quartermaster when Jack ex
plained the reason of tho difference in tbe
animals of tho two States. "But let me tell
you," ho continued, "that you're nearer fact
than you supposo. 'Like master like man ' is
an old adage, and why shouldn't a Missouri
mulo he like a Missouri man? As a general
thing the Missouri people have opposed every
thing ihat tended to the development of tho
Stato. I refer to the 3laveholding portion,
or those "who sympathize with slavery, though
thoy may havo no slaves of their own."
"How was that?"
"Thoy wero afraid it would interfere with
their system of slavery, as they saw it would
bring in a population that believed in freedom
instead of tho old state of things. When the
Buttcrfield Overland Stage Liue was established
from St. Louis to California they tried all they
could to slop it; they declared it wasn't need
ed ; and they did tho same when the Western
Union Telegraph Co. wanted to build a liue
across the State. They opposed the railways
that have been built in various parts of the
State, and for thesarae reason, notwithstanding
the fact that the railways would make their
land more valuable by bringing them nearer a
market. I havo lived in Missouri and know
what I'm talking about.
"Education has always been mnch more
backward in the South than in the North, as
everybody knows, aud it is the system of
slavery that caused this backwardness. Travel
through tho Northern Status and you see a
schoolliouse in every village and almost at
every crossroad, but in the South you may go
hundreds of miles withoutseeing a schoolliouse.
This ono fact speaks volumes in itself aud
illustrates the conditions growing out of slavery
on tno ono hand and ireeuom on tho other.
A people that do not want education do not
want railways and telegraphs, or anything else
that indicates progress. Only when the South
gots rid of slavery will ifc wake up and adopt
tho institutions of the North."
BegaTding tho South in tho light of tho pres
ent day, the word3 uttered by the Quarter
master may bo regarded as prophetic. It is
only since the war wiped away tbe stain of
slavery that tho Soutiiorn States havo vied
with tho North in developing their resources
and have sought to have a really intelligent
population. Before tho war education was con
liued chiefly to tho rich or the well-to-do, the
majority of tho poor whites being but little
above the negro in the scalo of intelligence.
Thousands on thousands of them were unable
to read or write, and tiioso who could do so had
littlo knowledge of the rest of the world.
Our young friends had frequeufc opportuni
ties to test tho intelligence of the natives of
tho region through which they were traveling,
and many of their experiences wero amusing.
Ono day they talked with a farmer who had
an impression tbat St. Louis was tho largest
city in tho world, aud practically the only one.
He had heard of New York and Chicago, hut
had no clear idea of their location except that
they were somewhere in tho North, and did
not believe they amounted to much anyway.
Ho thought Abraham Lincoln was a black
man, who had somehow been made President
of tho United States by the Abolitionists, and
if his armies succeeded In conquering the South
tho Government would be altogether in the
hands of the blacks, who would speedily pro
ceed to enslave tho rest of the population and
" havo white men for niggers."
Several times they talked with men and
women who were much surprised to find the
Yankee soldiers were whito men ; they had
expected to see only negroes, aud especially
thought it strange that tho officers were white
instead of black. A woman at whose houso
they stopped to get a drink of water said sho
didn't mind tho whito soldiers, but when it
camo to tho Black Republicans she wouldn't bo
ablo to enduro them.
" Why, we aro Black Eepublicans, madam ; or
would bo if wo could vote, said Jack.
No, you can't
be," was tho reply ; " you're
just as vrhito as vre-'uns if you'd only wash
your faces."
Tho boys good natnretlly enlightened her on
fcho subject by explaining that the term "Blacfc
Eepublicans" was a derisive one, which the
Democrats had applied to the llepublican party,
and had no reference to the complexion of
those who voted the Eepublicau ticket. They
were not sure that they had convinced her,
though thoy certainly raised doubts iu her
mind when sho saw the hundreds aud thou
sands of men that marched tmst the place, and
all of them anything but negroes.
Another timo they were less successful, as
tho native whom they sought to instruct
pointed triumphantly to the colored servant of
ono of the oilicers, who was mounted on a spare
horse belonging to his employer.
" Dou't talk to me that way," was tho angry
retort, " when there's one of your Generals, a
regular nigger, on a black horse."
The joke was too good to be kept, and that
evening it was circulated through the camp.
It caused a good doal of laughter, and for some
days tbe servaut who had been the innocent
cause of the mistake was addressed by his as
sociates as " General."
There was no fighting on tho march from
Boonevillo to Springfield, as tho Stato forces
under Gov. Jackson and Gen. Price were on
thoir lino of march considerably farther west,
and had a good start. They were being fol
lowed by a column from Leavenworth, uuder
commaud of Maj. Sturgis, but tho pursuers
wero not able to overtake them, being delayed
at the crossing of a river which lay on their
route. It had been hoped that the rebels would
bo caught between tho two columns of Sturgis
and Sweeney, and if they had been thus caught
thero was au excellent chance of a "Union vic
tory. As tho days woro on after the arrival of the
Union forces at Springfield, tho most impor
tant town of southwestern Missouri, the situa
tion became critical. It was known that Gen.
Price had formed a camp at Cowskin Prairie,
near the southwest corner of tho State, to wait
for the leinforcoments that were promised by
the Confederacy, and it was soon learned that
these roiuforcements had arrived aud Price was
about to move ou Springfield.
Altogether Gen. Lyon htfd about 6,000 men
under his command, but many ot them wero
enlisted for only three months; the expiration
of tho timo of somo of them was fast approach
ing, and others were already free to go homo.
Gen. Fremont had heeu placed in command
of the department, and to him Gen. Lyon sent
an earnest appeal for reiuforcements, saying he
would be compelled to retreat unless troops
wero sent to him. The desired troops were
promised, hut before they started the rebels
threatened Cairo, in Illinois, aud the regiments
destined for Gen. Lyon were sent thero in
stead of going to southwestern Missouri, as
originally intended.
Lyon was receiving no reiuforcements, while
Price was gaining iu strength and addiug to
tho effectiveness of his meu. About the 20th
of July Lyon's forco was weakened by the de
parture of two regiments of three-mouths
meu whoso timo had expired, whilo tho timo
of the 1st Iowa (tho regiment to which. Jack
and Harry wore attached) would bo out oarly
in August. No wonder Gen. Lyon was troubled
in mind, and that he sent urgent appeals to
Geu. Fremont for immediate aid.
News camo that the rebels were advancing
upon Springfield and that a great battle was
imminent. Jack and Harry wero jubilant at
tho promise of fighting, but older ones shook
thoir heads and looked serious. Tho Secession
inhabitants of Springfield wero rejoicing over
tho prospect of soou boiug rid of their Yankee
visitors; they could not conceal their delight,
and this circumstance convinced the thought
ful ones among the Unionists that the coming
clash of arms would be anything but a light
one.
