, ."" THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE: WASHINGTON, D. 0.,' THURSDAY, AUGUST 25, 1892.-TWELVE PAGES. FIGHTING THEM OVER, m Wbat Our Veterans Have to Say About Their Old Campaigns. AT ANTIETAM. YTliat Confcdcrato Troops relight the lOtli Bfc. In East Woods? HE following aro tho remarks made by Maj. John Jr. Gould afc the Reunion of the 1st, 10th and 29th Me. regiments, held at Portland, Me., Aug. 11, reporting; his prog ress as regimental historian of tho 10th Me.: You will remember that when our regi mental history was published in 1S70 I was unable to state what Confederate regi ment opposed the 10th Me. in the battJc of Antietam. Wc fought 30 or 40 minutes almost- alone upon the extreme left of Hook er's wing of McClol lan's army. The op nosinc Confederates appeared to be a force similar as regards isola tion, numbers and determination. They were, tho best inaiksmen we ever met, ana as they held a strong position in East Woods we had to advance under difficulties. The regimental historv tells of the awfnl slaughter; of our Blight pain of ground ; of the fatal raista.ee of Gen. Mansfield, our corps commander, who sup posed the enemy was a part of Hooker s force, and rode almost into their midst and was mor tally wounded while trving to make us cease firing. It aUo tells vou my cflbrts to learn who these stubborn fellows were, and it discusses the questions in vogue amongst us as to whether they were a legimentoradetaclimentof sharp shooters, and whether there were men in the trees, and if ther used explosive bullets, -till ally you were told that tho men you killed, and hnried and marked 20 GEO. on their cracker fcox headboards were not 20th Georgians at all and that I wa3 unable to learn who thoy were. You will recall that Gen. A- H. Colquitt, now Senator from Georgia, gave us his opinion that -we had enccenteied the right regiment (6th Ga.) of his brigade. Col. Duncan K. McRac was also of this oirinion, but suggested tho pos sibility that we struck Jtiplcy's Brigade. He was quite sure we did not meet his brigade, known as Garland's, though they came into the woods while we were there. These three brigades were in D. H. HilFs Division. Since publishing the history I have been in correspondence with Geiu E. A. Carman, Colo nel, 13th X. J., -who in 1S77 was gathering ma terial for a history of our Twelfth Corp. He plainly had found a hard chapter in Antietatn. I ielpcd. him all I could, and hegavc uie copies of some of his correspondents' letters. He ha3 never published. In 1834 Col. YC. Allen, of Stonewall Jackson's Staff, and one of the most able and fair of all Confederate writers, wrote me a series of let ters, and I discussed tho battle with him as far as I knew it He published his narrative i the Cincinnati weeklv Inqnirer, Feb. IS, 1885, hut did not go deeply into details, and he was unable to help me solve my riddle. He- has Biace died. Twice I Tisited Gen. Geo. H. Gordon, well kaflwu as tho Colonel of the 2d Mass. Before 3iis death he pnblished three volumes of per sonal military history, but did not finish the Aatfetam campaign, and coold not help me In my swrrcb. In 1832 Scribnex & Co. issued the AnUetara volume of their series of monographs. It was written hy Gen. F. V. Palfrey, 20th Mass., Second Corps. Of necessity he deals only with the more important features of the battle am throws no light upon our little question. Gen. Palfrey alsa is now dead. Herctbea. wc have, four specialstudents; all personally present hi the battle in or around EastWoods, and none of them able to aid in the minor matter concerning-lis. Finallv, October; 1SS7, the XLS. Government issaed. Volume XIX Part 1. of the Official Becords, containing all the Union and Confed erate reports in Government possession. I tkoeght I shosld surely learn everything now; lint, instead, there came with the reading a great confusion; then followed the much study that is weariness with despair and abandon ment of Yol. XEX. These reports are too meager, aud often so erroneous that, as a -frhole, they are not trustworthy. For instance, our own Lieutenant, Col. Fillebrown, hurried together five sentences, four of which contain errors. Ho omitted all mention of Gen. Mans field's wounding; so the ordinary reader may believe the statement of CoL Higgins, of the 125th Pa- that Gen. Mansfield was carried off the field by his men. At last it came over mo that the wise and mighty were dying and leaving U3 in ignorance, and that even if it is not so very important a matter, yet I think we all want to know whom we fought and also to correct the error now standing against us. I had noticed in theDccemlJcrnnmhcr of the Century Magazine -a. communicatiou from Col. W. I. DeHopet, 3d N". C, of Eipley's Brigade, and I addressed him to learn bow true CoL McEao's EBrmiso had been that we struck Ripley. Col. DeRopet had good vision, good memory, and good nature. Our correspondence was long and exhaustive. Meanwhile, in 16S9, our regi mental excursion gave me chance to see Antie tam asain and to snap a little kodak" there. At tho end of it all Co!. DeRopet and myself were convinced that Eiprey fought too late in the day and loo far southwest to be our antagonist. This result of more than two ears' effort was not wholly encouraging. The Colonel sug gested I should next search in Trimble's Bri gade, of Stonewall Jackson's Corps. I began again, and this was the process: Yok XIX tells what regiments composed tho brigade. The Adjutant-General of the State told what Counties the regiment was raised in. The various PoR'masters gave names of prominent Confederate officers, and these named surviv ors of the particular regiment, who at last told what officers and men were in Antietam, or Sharpsburg as they call It. Then, of the real jjghtcre at Antietam a quarter did not care to write, another quarter havo forgotten nearly all or, what is worse, have confused this battle with some other one. But by patience and persistence a few have been found in every regiment blessed by nature with the gifts of seeing and remembering. From them I havo gradually got the story, though after all it is only one little fragment of the battle of Antietam. Secondly. I went through Trimble's Brigade and found at the end that they had played their terrible part and melted away before the 10th Me. came into the woods. I had now discovered that I didn't know much about Antietam aud that I had better learn my A B C's for the next lesson; so I be gan writing to all Union regiments engaged in onr part of the field. It was easier to get post office addresses of Union soldiers, but the Con federates are the better correspondents on tho whole, and it was slow, up hill work trying to learn the truth and correct the errors and fill np the gaps in Volume XIX. By a mostlucky hit Col. Fox, 107th N".Y., was one of the first I wrote to. Ho is the well known author of that standard, work, "Regi mental Losses." He noted that the 10th Me. participated in the last light in East Woods, and that the 5th Tex. and 4th. Ala., of Hood's Division, wero the last Confederates, aud presumably our foe. I had laid Hood aside in 1S70 as fighting too far west of us. Col. For now brought them to light for me. Again good fortune attended. I got the ad dress of nearly every officer of the 5th Tex. and received an intelligent and hearty response from almost all of them. The other regiments of Hood Division also wrote as they fought, readily and intelligently. In the 4th Ala. I was even more fortunate. M?j. Uobbms.. the senior officer of that regi ment and of all the troops in East Woods, proved f a most genial and enthusiastic helper. He gave mo the one little.itcm I was searching for, I viz., that while his regiment was entering tho t woods he met five companies of stray and on low him, aud he put them in on his right tho right of all. I thought I had almost found our "enemy," but I have been maiching through Georgia thesa past 17 months for a. little more light and certainty. But in studying tho A B C I found that tho beautiful map made apparently with so much care by the Govorument Engineers had a number of errors which had perplexed my cor respondents and vexed mo. After years of try ing to reconcile official reports and private letters with this map I saw I should have to go to the field again and study the ground. There is no map in existence so far as I know, that will serve a student of tho northern part of the field. Tho Board of Publication of tho Official Records have just Issued copies of McClolIau's, Houston's and Michler's maps, aud all threo are defective and erroneous. You will also re member that in 1SS9 we had two places pointed to us as where Mansfield was wounded; both wero wrong, and the right spot was not shown us. Therefore, in September, 1S91, Maj. Wm. P. Jordan and mysalf arranged to attend the Reunion of tho 12"th To. on tho field. Wo wero cordially received by the veneiable Col. Higgins, a veteran of the rebellion and the Mexican war. He- disclaimed all personal knowledge of tho wounding of Mansfield. Maj. Jordan and I easily found tlio rock where he stood when remonstrarlng with Mansfield about the character of the men in our front. I left the Major to defend the true story and went myyelf to view tho thud, impossible, place where a very, very few of the 125th thought Mansfield fell. Maj. Jordan and I placed a hoard marker over tho spot where Gen. Mansfield sat when shot, and I do not think there will bo any more dispute where or how Mansfield fell. From the soldiers, from letters old residents, and deeds of land I reconstructed the map as nearly as I could and made many things intel ligible hitherto dark. I staid seven days in tho field. Since the first word fioui Maj. Bob bins, 4th Ala., I have been trying to learn what regiments tho five stray companies of Georgians belouged to, and here comes tho sin gular part of this long story. Lately, I got a letter from Mr. Sidney Lewis, editor of (he isi viaetile, of Sparta, Ga., who was a private in the 6th Ga., of Colquitt?.? Brigade He writes that very early in the morning the companies A of all five of Colquitt's regiments wero sent out and fought independently of the brigade, and. I judge, unknown to its commander and staff, sinco they failed to mention it in their several lettcis to mo and in tho official report. Capt. Morgan, of the 6th Ga., afterward killed at Petersburg, led this battalion and thoy fought in East Woods, on tho right of an Alalia ma reriment of some other command. Colquitt's Brigade was the 6th, 23d. 27th. aud 2Stlt Ga., and 13th Ala. I had recived many letters from them all, but only one officer wrote of the detachment under Morgan. We started all thi3 trouble the afternoon of the battle by marking. 20 GEO. on the head boards of the dead 1 shall not consider the trouble ended until I have letters from several Confederate soldier? who saw the 10th Me., or saw Gen. Mansfield, or noticed our old dog jumping around between tho lines. But to day it looks as if we shall finally laud vory near whero wc started. It was not the 20th Ga., nor the right of Colquitt's Brigade we fought, but one company from each of tho 6th, 23d, 27th, and 23th Ga., and 13th Ala., with about an equal number from the 5th Tc.t. and 4th Ala., tho very best, it proves now, of Lees army. This is as far as I have got at predeut. If 1 live I shall hope to learn more. AT GETTYSBURG-. De- 1RL3 wCstir&M&P S-I ! lZ-8D-F fF--hfc ? -jhb 52231 Ems?

What troops oc cupied Little Round Top? and the second, Who helped Battery Df 5th U. S. Art., upon Round Top? Lite in tho day of July 2, 1S03. our regi ment, the 140th N. Y., was marching in tho rear of the brigade, had crossed the Round Top Ridge near whero the railroad now goea, when Gen. G. K. Warren rode in a hurry to our Colo nel (P. H. O'Rorke) and got him to take us to ward the summit of Little Round Top. We had got about halfway when Battery D broke vJt through our ranks on ; position for action. We, the infantry, wero go ing at our best speed, and had to do some lively dodging to keep We soon passed them, fol- to the summit of Little ;-, is ;?--"' fe? fi- Si" LS from being ran over, lowinc onr Colonel Round Ton and down to the foot of tho hill be tween the two Round Tops. The two leading companies, A and G suffered the most, A hav ing seven killed and G six killed. In a few moments wenwere engaged, not more than 50 feet from the reb?. We checked them, held our position, and after dark built a stone wall between the rocks to shelter us from sharpshooters located at the Devil's Den. Tho next day, after their first repulse, they tried to reinforco their lines, and our regiment was drawn np in line in front of BatXery D for a while, and they repulsed all attempts to como up Round Top In line of battle. I have a ro minder of the battery's firing there in the form of deafness. After the battery fired awhilo we took to cover again on Little Round Top. The enemy at this time were over near and in tho Devil's Den. The rest of our ungado soon came and formed on our right tiie 148th N. Y., 91st and 155th Pa. I remember how some of the 91st told me how they cleared their front when they opened fire with their buck-and-ball cartridges. The first man I saw fall was San ford Webb, of Co. G. He was touching my left elbow, and fell near the summit of Little Round Top, within four feet of and hi front of tho rock which has a tablet on in memory of Gen. Vincent, probably 40 feet north of tho summit. Our brigade held that position tbo night of July 2, alL of the 3d and 1th, and until the morning of the 5th. The writer was on tho skirmish-lino on the morning of the 5th, and advanced over acros? the Etumitsburg road; saw a force advancing, fell back, half a mile or so to where Fames worth's cavalry fought, and at a call for vol unteers to advance and see what they wero doing, Wm. Shears, of Co. A, aud the writer of this jumped over tho wall and advanced down into the woods and were soon firing at two mounted men. I claim to have fired the hist shot I hoard fired at Gettysburg, say, about 8 a. m., July 5, 16(53, aud I have since fouud out that the man I was paying so much attention to is a North Carolina Captain, and is now liv .iug in the adjoining County to the one I live in at present. As to Wm. Shears, poor fellow, he was killed at the battle of tho Wilderness. As to Battery D, I think they got themselves into position on Little Round Top. Longstreet claims that they did lots of damage to Pickett's Division on the 3d, and I doubt if ever a battery had better marksmen than they had. 1 don't wish to f-ay anything against Vin cent's men; they did sdl they could at the front base of Little Round Topr but they were being driven back wheu we arrived on the ground, and manfully they helped us what was left of them.

A Pennsylvania Comrade Says the Battle was Fought in February, 1865. Editor Natton-ac TRinuxEr REGARDING tho contro ls versy as to the dato of 5j the fight at Armstrong's itflLQl Mills, which some of wf tho Second Corps hoys claim took place in October, 1864, while Comrado Schraum, of New York Cityy claims it was fought in Janu ary or February, 1865, I wi3h to say that Thavc bofore me as I write a record of that fight that was written a few days after it occurred, which gives the dato as Feb. 6 and 7, 1865. I belonged to the 155th Pa., Third Brigade, Bartlett's (First) Divi sion, Fifth Corpe- My record reads : "Feb. 4, 1865: This evening we received orders to bo ready to march at 6 o'clock next morning, and wero also notified 'that those on picket would remain, as also the camp guards. "At daylight Sabbath raornin?, Feb. 5, the corps was in line. Appearances indicating that wo might return here, we took nothing but our blankets. Wo inarched to tho Yellow House, throe miles, then south down tho Wel don Railroad about four miles; then southwest to Rowauty Creek, two miles. Tho rebeU had rifle-pits on tho opposite bank and had slashed tho creek full of timber, making it difficult to cross, but wa got over somehow, routing and capturing most of thom. "After this we marched, possibly six miles until wo struck tho Vaughn road. Here Gon. Warren had a narrow escapo from being killed or captured. Ho was so rlose to a squad of about 30 rebels that ho asked whore they be longed. (Thoy were mostly dressed in our uniform.) They replied with a volley, one bullet going through the General's coat. They captured a few of our men, when a squad from my regiment was sent after them, who killed two and captured others. It had been freezing all day- About sundown we went into camp on a large plantation, the owner of which told me that we were the first Yankees that had camped on his place. He was a perfect typo of the old Virginia gentleman; "afo' de wall, sail," stove-pipe hat, bluo swallow-tailed coat brass buttons, etc. A big Irishman In tho regiment wanted to trade coats with him, which he toolr as a deadly insult; aud Pat innocently added to his wrath hy asking him. if a, little darky boy that was running around there was hi3 Hon. As the marilfrir.vcry dark-skihuod, Pat's question drove hint crazy mad. "About 11 o'clock that night wo were waked up, and started back on the Vaughn road in the direction of Petersburg to Hatcher's Run, about five miles. The Second Corps had cap tured the rebel works here during the day. When we came near Hatcher's Run we halted in an old tobacco-field, without fire, and did not know whero to get anything to make a fire, and all we could do-waa to walkabout and shiver untiL daylight about two hours. This day was cold and we suffered very much on ac count of it. " About 2 o'clock. p. m. the Second and Third Division of our corps advanced and drove the rebels some distanco bofbro wo went in. Onr regiment was" on the loft of the line and oar company on the left of the regiment, and instead of a line of battle the regiment deployed like a skirmish-line. We drove them a mile or more through the woods, over fallen timbcrand tree-tops,, until we carao to where there had once been a sa-w-raill aud a large pile of sawdust. Some of our boys were on the sawdust when they made a charge on our Ifno. The regiment on our right had fallen back, which let the rebs in on our flank. The bal lets were coming from front aud flank, and it was getting both hot aud close. The rear was the only open place, and wo went back iu a hurry, jumping over logs and brush, and zL the while the rebs seemed to be unnecessarily clo3c. We soon ovurtook part of our division, when we rallied and gave them a few volleys, which caused them to stop crowding us. "When we had gotten nearly back to where wo started we fonnil tjio Second , Brigado of our division in line with fixed bayonet? to prevent our going further ThiVbYVgade .was1 composed of the 187th, 189th, and lS9th N. Y one-year regiments, aud were the same that fired into onr men Oct. 27, 1SG4, at Hatcher's Run. Here in front of them were the men and ofiicers of two divisions, and ono brigade of our division, trying to form a lino of battle. While forming the rebel bullets ware coming thick, which excited oar Second Brigade so that they began firing, right among tho mas3 of men in front of them. Men aud officers foil all about, perhaps more than foil from the rebel fire. After thoy had fired, many of them threw away their guns, and the whole brigade started as fast a? thoy could for tho rear and got behind the works, where some of those who still had their guns continued to fire at our men as they came back. Then they made another break for the bridge and tbo other side of the creek. " When wo got back to the works we stopped the rebels and began to form companies, regi meuts, and brigades. Tho commander of our company began with two men, but by night wo were all together again. We lay on the frozen ground that night, but before morning it began to sloot, rain, and freeze, and tho next day was terribly had, and will be long remembered by many a poor fellow that had tho misfortune to be wounded that day. Our loss in tho regi ment was lour Jullea, ai wounacu, auu, x missing. "Feb. 13 our camp guards and everything we had left behind wero brought to as, about eight miles from our former camp. During this timo tho weather was cold and it was very hard on the men lying on tho cold ground. Soon we began putting up huts, which was the fourth set of houses that Winter." If any of tho old brig.ido (Bartlett's) see this I would like for them to write up some of the old campaigns of the old Fifth Corp?. You need not bo ashamed of anything we ever did, boys. J. H- Hill, Musician, Co. K, 155th Pa., Barnardo, Pa. Sherman occupiedTCnlumbia and burned it, after which Johnstonwas recalled to tho com mand to the Co tiled era'te?. I do not sec how Sherman was tomovp against Johnston bo fore ho was in command. After our brigade, broke and started back across tho field for- tho woods at Bull Run, I (being on skirmish at tho extreme loffc of our part of the lino) sMtedjsoutheastuutil Istruck tho road leading to' Warren ton; thence south to what thoy called tho Groveton House. I was alonoaud was yet in the field to tho south when the rebels Rent, across the road into tho woods after our men. From near the Grovetou Houso I took a more easterly diroction across a piece of grass laud for the woods. When about half way across a (rebel (skirmish-line appoaied on tho sidehill, in the corn, and atonce opened firo on me atnot over 25 rods distance. I had about 10 or 15 rod3 to go to gain shelter in tho woods. To say that I got thoro does not half express it. Probably 30 men shot at mo at that short range, yet without harm to mo or my clothes.

I have often wept while reading your pa iior because 1 had never planted a flag or carried a rebel officer to tho rear on my bayonet; never had captured a whole battery of artillery aud turned it on tho fleeing foe; could not even lay claim to being tho youngest soldier, for the simple reason that I did not know what to claim, as each claimant got younger. 1 aid think at ono time of claiming two years and four months when I onlisted, but I knew full well that somo blaalod liar from the East or far We?t would boat that. But when I saw this Inquiry I shouted vntii joy; rknowl could knock tho porsimmon. pro vided tho prevaricators weio kept out of tho contest. But I want it understood bofore I lay any claim that all such must be excluded. Elso whero would bo tho chauces of an honest, unassuming man from Ohio? Thero was a timo in my life when I douhted tho truth of the old adages, viz., "Tho good die young," "Death love3 a shining mark," etc.; but after reading some of tho articles in ran National Tribunk my faith bogau to faltor; then, to cap tho climax I attended a Campfire of Geo.

A Comrade Takes Exceptions to Some of the School Illhtorlos. Editor National Trironk: HETHER it was I that got lost from tho Army of the Potomae, or whether it was the Army of the Potomac that got Tost from mo at the sec ond battle of Bull Bun, I have been for some timo at a loss to know. In re lating a circumstance that happened to me-in that fight, oue of my sons thought I must be mistaken, if I was in the Army of tho Potomac, as that army did not participate in tho second BullRuu. Ho forth with produced Barnes's brief history (a school history), which says (page 240) r "Popo, seeing an opportunity, while Lee's army was thus divided, to cut it up in. detail, turned upon Jackson. But tho Army of the Potomac not promptly reinforcing him his phms failed, and instead of bagging Jackson's- Division, he was compelled, with his slowly-gathering troops, to fight the entire Confederate army on tho old battlefield of Bull Run." I was a soldier in the Third Brigade, First Division, Fifth Corps. My brigade was thero. I think tho division was there and the corp3 also; yet I might havo got lost and strayed into Pope's army, which, iu wholo or in part, was at Centervillo during the fight, and while on the "run." after dark I. met troops who said thoy belonged to Pope's army on tho way out from Ceuterville to chock thecnemy. Furthermore, " the entire Confederate force " was not engaged in that fight, for whon I was leaving the field in the direction of the Grove ton House, I looked off to the southwest on an elevated plateau, and saw more robels drawn np in lias aud cheering than I ever saw to gether before or afterwarus. xuey nau not been engaged that day, nor wero they eugaged during that battle. " Now, if the Army of tha Potomac was there and did any fighting, then how is it that suck errors are made by bistoriaus aud" published in school books to mislead the rising generation? If the Army of the Potomae was lost, or. I was lost then Barnes's history is right.. The same history saya fpago 270) : " Sliorman was to move north from Savannah against Johnston and then join Grant in the final' at tack upon Lee." This move bogau about tha lat of February, 18G4. On tho 17th following of being classed with the "un sophisticated," I desire to say that on. the morn ing of Sept. 17, 1862, at the battle of Antietam, as tho command was about to movo from tho field whero we had lain under tho fire of rebel batteries all day of the 16th, my attention wa3 called to Private Isaac P. Hopkins, who had been ailing for several days, but who would not give up. lie was clearly unfit for duty, aud wa3 ordered to re main behind. "No," he said; "I would rathor die than be called a coward ; but I know vory well I am going to be killed to-day." Ho was the only man of his company who died on tho field that day, though many wore wounded, mortally aud otherwise. Another case in point.. My chum was Aaron C. Jenkins, as cool aud as brave a boy as over was under fire. Wo shared each other's confi dence, as well as blaukcts and rations. On tho morning of May 3, 1363, at Chancellorsville, tho regiment was in lino near tho Plank road, where the Eleventh Corps had fallen back tho previous evening, apparently waiting orders. Brigade after brigade of our troops bad boon successively driven back through tho woods, when I noticed Aaron out of ranks sitting on a pile of old rails, nis attitude and demeanor betokened deep thought. Approaching him, and with a familiarslap upon his back, Tasked him. if his- girl had got married. "No," he said quietly f "but this is my last battle. I know I will be killed to-day." Ten minutes later Gen. Carroll led us into that woods; a volley was fired and a charge wa? ordered, and within 30 minutcs-that woods was cleared of Johnnies, breastworks aud all, panning out 303 prisoners. Aaron C. Jenkiu3 was tho onjy man of his company who lost his life that day. There is no ground for presum ing that all or any considerable proportion of soldiers about to meet tho enemy aro troubled with a premonition of disaster, much lea? mon like tho two I havo named, who, their sur viving comrades will testify, wore absolutely without fear in action, and always ready for duty.

McPhcrson's death. Maj. Steele's staronieut is the way we have always understood' it, and he is certainly qual ified to say whether or not- Gen. McPherson had any of his staff with him wheu he rode to his death. Maj.J Stcelo was one of my com pany Lieutenants', ahtl was dotailed for stuff duty when Gen. "Mcpherson first got a com mand, and servcttvritli. him tilL his death, and from that time oVtlm1 staff of Gon. F. P. Blair till tho end. Jo'RaX Co. A, 41st 111., Emery, 111. ' Juat 23 years ago, Friday, Mnj.-Gcn. James B.

Maj. Georgo R, Stcelo, of this city, wks on Gon. arcPheraon'ji staff, and he iu person con veyed the news of McPhcrson's death to Gen. W. T. Sherman. The Miijor took- Gon. Sherman's message to- Gen.

Hand Grenades. WAS greatly interested in Lomrano xioddss story, as I was at Vicksburg myself," says Nathan Carryl Underwood, Lieuten ant, Co. D, 72d 111., Harwich, Mass. I was in Ransom's Brigade, on tha line botween Logan and Sherman. His account of the si ego is a very good one. Tho mention of h.ind crenades- brings j5 to mind a little experi cuce in which I was rather worsted. I had command of the sharp shooters in our fort on tho day that Gon. Logan blew up Fort Hill, and had a squad in the end of the trench doing- thoir best 4. l.Slf .I.m TnKntiTiicr , LU 21.111 1IIU s V . i.i.i j- ctC.

My favorite Generals weio Han som and McPherson, on both of whoso staffs I carwod :infl so know them well. They both would have been near tho top if thoy had lived to tho end of the war. My undo, Deacon Sidnoy Underwood, of Harwich, born ISO J, is the only surviving sou of a Revolutionary soldier in this County (Barnstable). My grandfather, Rev. Nathan Underwood, wa3 born in Lexington 1753. He did nor. par ticipate in tho Lexington battle, on ac count of a sovero cut in tho foot, but was afc Bunker Hill aud among tho vory last to leave. He was in tho battle of Long Island, and after the battle was the officer in charge of the removal of ship stores and ord nance from Long-Island to New York- Great secrecy was necessaryand his orders was: " The first man who speaks a loud word, run him through." My great-grand father on mother's side, Thomas Carryl, was killed in this battle.. Grandfather Underwood remained in tho army until the close of tho war, aud then passed through Harvard and becama a minister. Care for Grip. Wm. M. Danuer, 831 Park avenue.

Saline County, he says, is bounded ou the west, north and oast by the Missonri River, and almost entirely on the south by-Black Water aud Lamine Rivers, which last empties" into the Missouri just above Boonville. The prairies are undulating; timberlands rolling, and near the rivers hilly.

B, 82d Pa., Bear Lake, Pa.: "As a constant reader of the host soldier paper iu America, I wi3h to express a few thoughts which have been presented to my mind whib perusing Thk National Tribunk each week. I do not wish to speak of any par ticular article written by any ono of tho com rade? in any spirit of criticism whatever. Bat my heart has been pained at times in reading tho almcot personal remarks of somo of my comrades to each other. Comrades, do yon realize that moro than a quarter of a centnry ha3 passed since wc wero called upon to do our humble part In sustaining-the Union and mak ing itp033ible to enjoy what we are to-day? No doubt your mind goes back with honest pride a3. mine docs over the achievements which will go down to future posterity as ono of pa triotism and duties performed which will over stand without a parallel in the history of our country. But every one cannot see from tho same standpoint, and if wo differ in our views, let U3 do so with that pure spirit of companion ship which will serve to bind U3 closer to each other, until wo meet our great commander at tho last great review, whon all oar differences will bo amicably adjustcd.,r Does Not Want to Cet married. By a mistake the name of J. B. Kirk, 730 W. Wayne street, Lima, Ohio, waa inserted in our issue of Aug. 4r aa a comrado who desired cor respondence with a view to matrimony.

Spokane Plains. W. O. Morse, Co. C, 9th' U. 9. Inf., 614 Fourth street, Sioux City, Iowa, writes: "Having no ticed a communication in a lato Issue from Win. Scaton, of Co. E, 9th U. S. Inf., iu regard to thedefeafc of Lieut.-Cof. E. J. Steptoo, I will say that he is right In regard to dates, as near aa I can recollect. I was at the bnttle of the Spokane Plains, and afterwards went on the boundary survey and helped build Fort Col villo. He says tho stirring events of that cam paign will always remain vivid to his memory. So they will to me. I belonged to Co. C, 9th Mo. Int., under Capt. Pickett, afterwards Gen. Pickett, of the C. S. A. Capt, Pickett, Capt. Fnraier, of Co. I, and Lieufc Carr, of Co. IC, 9th U. S.., leftua in June, 1861, and that was the last I ever saw of them. They left us at Col villo, and I helped pack their movables to Walla Walla. I would like to hear from some of the boys who went out on that campaign ; also from some of Co. A, IC, I orC boys who left Fort Colville on tire bonndary survey in 1859-and 1800. Good luck to yoar vainable paper.

William Simmons, Corresponding Secretary, Gulf Squadron Survivors' Association, Phila delphia, Pa., writes: "I notico in your is3iie of Aug. 4, that Mr. C. D. Brigham of Washing ton, D. C, refers to Gen. B. F.Butler as com mander of the Now Orleans expedition. Gen. Butler was not at any time commander of that, expedition, aud had absolutely uothiug what ever to do with it. Ho did not arrive in Now Orleans until several days after the capture o that city. Capt. D. G. Farragut commanded tho expedition, and I embrace this oppotunity of entering my solemn protest against any effort to rob tho Navy of any honors to which wo aro entitled to ; and I sincerely trusfc-that the writers of war literature, to whom, your columns are open, will confine themselves to the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Wo of the navy recognize, ac knowledge and admit the importance and ex tent of the work accomplished by our army comrades, and are particularly careful to give them duo credit foe their services. We there fore respectfully suggest, aud havo a right to expect, that the same courtesy bo oxtonded to us." Saw His Mlbtake. S. Hendrick, 20S Sixth avenue,, Hutchinson, Kan., thinks the comrado who wrote the very interesting article in Thk NationalTkibuse of July 2L, entitled "Scouting. Adventures," must havo been mistaken aa to the battery to I which Henry W. Dodd and Benjamin F. Mc- Cord belonged. Serg'fc Knight has tho men a3 belonging to Battery B, 1st Ohio L. A. Tho writer knows that Battery B. 1st Ohio, served in the West- In looking over tha roster of Ohio troops ho finds tho names of Dodd and McCord in Battery H, lt Ohio L. A. Aa the writer was a member of Buttery C, 1st Ohio L. A., would like to seo tho mistake corrected. Will say that a few days after the article ap peared Sorg't Judson Knight, tho author, in formed 03 that ho had mndo a mistake iu the battery to which Dodd and McCord belonged, and that it should havo been Battery H instead of Battery B. J. M. Hay, Co. F. 7th Ind., Oak Cliff, Tox writes: "I waa told that someono had advorti?ed for a raemberof the party that, cat out of a box car while en route from Hello Islnnd,Va.,to Salis bury, N.

E. Morso, Los Angela?, Cl., thinks that it would, be a good plan for the Government to do away with all tho qnack examinations for old soldiors by tho great army of ?o called Govern ment Surgeon?-at a co-tof 35 and $3 ahead. Some of these Surgeons aro not old cucugn to know ono disease from, another. He thinks thi? monoy had bettor bo given directly to the soldiers who shouldered a musket. He docs not see how the pulso-bcat of any old soldier, after 2.7 years, or how much he weighs, can affect his pension claim- All that should hn-rennlrad of a man 13 that he tUtl good sarv- Ica and was honorably discharged, and he ought not be compelled to nndross aud go be fore a Board of Surgeons.

Potter, Olivet, Ark., writes: "Tn your issue of Aug-4 Corp'I Hutchinson, of the 7th Mass., says, among other thing?, that the S3d Pa. supported an attack upon Marye's Blights at the battle of Chancellorsville. This is an error, for tho 83d Pa- was not thoro. It never belonged to tho Sixth Corps, but from first to last was iri the Third Brigade, First Division, Fifth Corp3, and at the date mentioned tho 83d Pa. was supporting a nest of batteries all huddled togethor in an angle of our line im mediately opposite whore Stonewall Jackson was killed at Chancellorsville. The writer Temcmbera hearing a remark of Gen. Griflin at tiiat time and place which illustrates tho character of GrilHn and tho confidence hi3 superior officers had in him. As I said, a nest of batteries wero gathered in that anglo by Gen. Griflin. Presently Gon. Meade came by inspecting the line, and a3ked Gon. Griffin if he was not afraid of losing some of thom should the enemy ciiarge that point. Gen Grifliii, looked a little distressed, poked ont his sharp chin, and giving his hat a pulL over his eye3, as was his habit when fearfully iu earnest, replied, 'Yon, Gen. Jfeade, loavo thoso batteries just where they are. If the Johnnies charge thom I will make them think h 11 i3ii't half a mile off.' Gen. Meade smiled and rode away, leaving the batteries 'just where they were- and later the Johnnies did charge, and well, they may have gone that 'half mile,' but they did not take any batteries with them." Chasing Jlehcls. John Hall, Co- C, 8th N. T- Cav., Corpns Chri3ti, Tex., writes "I have seen a great deal In your paper about opening tho battle of Gettysburg; L. with others of Co. C, 8th 2T- Y. Cav., about, I should say, 50 to 100 men. charged into the town. It must have been about 5 or 6 o'clock the evening of Juno 30rand we en countered about a squadron of rebel cavalry drawn up in line. We charged them right down the main street. There wa3 not a thing between U3 and them at the time, but yon bet it mode us boys feel good, bareheaded, dashing down on them in full charge. " Wo charged on them up to the Cemetery Ridge, and there wo were ordered to halt. Tha Buford cavalry camped close to the country that night,, and they kept U3 busy all night, aud early in the morning tho skirmish-line was hot." A Good Soldier.
