Aug. 31. Just at dusk last evening we received orders to ro to Jonesboro with all possible liable, and had a hard, tiresome march all nicht, reaching the vicinity of Jonesboro before daylight, when our bri gade was immediately ordered back to re join our division. We have been attached to Cleburne's Division for the past two or threo weeks. Although very tired and footsore we were more than willing to go back, for all signs indicated that Jonesboro Mould be a very unhealthy place before the setting of the sun. And so it proved to be JSefore we had covered half ibe distance she boom ing of cannon told us that the life or death struggle for Atlanta had begun, and while our sympathies were with the boys who were bearing the brunt of the battle, we rejoiced that it was our good fortune to es cape the terrible ordeal. We got back to our division about mid day, broken down, almost ptrved, and no rations in sight. Here everything was quiet, and we had n-Uiing to do but tii and listen with intense interest to the tlittn der of artillery and roar of musketry, which becan about 2 p. m. and continued v'lhoul intermission until darkness put an end to th contJict, our susu-ase still unrelieved. Fun fob the lor we could hear nothing authentic from the battlefield. All the sick and disabled .are ordered to the division hospital. Lieut. C, who has been quite sick several days, was so ex hausted by the march last night that he had to go, much against his will. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 3. Wirh the dawn of Sept. 1 the artilleiy opened again at Jonesboro, with what we supposed was a continuation of the battle. All day we lis tened, our suspense being even greater than it was the day before, hoping lor the best, but no tidings of encouragement reached us, and not until sunset did we learn the true state of affairs. When the news was imparted to us it was a death knell to our hopes. Our forces were defeated yesterday, and all the firing of to-day was by artillery to keep up a show of resistance while prepar ations were being made to evacuate the city. When darkness set in the artillery and wagons began moving, siege guns were spiked and dismounted. Government stores, ammunition and everything that could not be carried out were set on fire, and about 10 o'clock, with "heavy hearts and solemn tread," we marched through the city and out in a southeast direction. Wc traveled all night and at daybreak could see the lights from the fires in the '-ity. Daylight brought no rest; on, on, on, all day and all night, acain we dragsed our weary limbs, and reached Ixivejoy Station on Sept. 3, havinc been two days and nights without bleep or rest, except a few short stops. No doubt Sherman thought he had us "bagged" this time, but by taking a very cir cuitous route, passing around the Federal army, which is still at .lonesboro, we reached our destination without any seri ous mishap. Lovejoy Station, Ga., Sept. A to 7. We have spent the past three days resting, washing and cleaning up generally. The first wash day we have had for four months and the first regular camp wc have enjoyed for some time. The campaign seems to have ended for the present, but how soon another will be gin is more than we can tell, though prob ably as soon as both armies have time to rest and reorganize. This has been a re markable est in paten. Four long months we have been in line -of-bat tie Scarcely one hour during that time, day or night, have we been out f the sound of guns on some part of the line; have spent many .ulecpless nights on picket, on videt or oh the retreat; have dug 100 miles or more of ditches, retreated from Dalton to Atlanta, and now from Atlanta to Lovejoy. We have fought many battles, in nearly all of which the advantage has been on our s'de, until the fatal lth of .luJy, when Gen. Hood superseded our beloved commander, since whi.h time it has been a series of de feats that have left our armv shattered and reduced in numbers, but not as much dis pirited as might have been expected. In the four principal battles fought bv Gen. Hood, viz, 20th, 22d, and 2Sib of July and Aug. 31, the tactics of Gen. Johnston were reversed and wc had to charge works manned by largely -superior numbers, and while we feel that we did our whole duty, we were defeated in each, with an aggre gate loss of 12,000 or I.,0G0 men. Although Gen. Johnston would probablv have given up Atlanta, we believe he would have held it longer ivith much small er loss and inflicted a heavier loss upon the enemy, and our army would now be Mronger and in better condition; but we do not censure Gen. Hood, for he is a brave and gallant officer and was placed in com mand for the express purpose of making a desperate strugg'e to hold the "Gate City." However, it is evident now, as we then behoved, that Prescient Davis made a fatal mistake when he issued the order re lieving Cum. Johnston. Sept. 8. Ordered to call roll three times a day. Company drill in morning and bat talion drill in afternoon. Learn that the Chicago Convention nominated lcCIellan and Pendleton for President and Vice President. Sept. 10. An armistice for 10 days has been agreed upon by the commanding Generals, io be effective within five miles of the railroiid. Outside of that tenitory operations can be carried on as usual. Sherman has ordered every white person out of Atlanta. What are the poor people to do? Fortv thousand or 50,000 driven from their homes, upon an already impoverished country, leaving all behind, without monev, food or shelter. It is distressing, cruel, and I can't believe it would have been done if things were reversed and we had captured a Northern city; but such is war, and stim ulates us to a renewed determination to achieve our independence or die in the last ditch. Sept. 11. Preaching between hours of duty to-day. An attempt is being made to 5he fac-simile signature of dLMtA -"- -X2ZZZ2222?. renew the revival that has been interrupted for so long a time. Sept. yv Nothing of- interest going on except the "big meeting." Twenty-five baptized to-day. Sept. 13. Interest in the revival grows. Twenty more baptized and many peni tents at the altar. Preaching and drilling takes up about all our time. Sept. 14. Division review. Gen. Loring, mounted on his old roan, rode down the line, welcomed by cheers from the whole division. Ife had just returned, having been wounded on July 28. Sept. l.r. Gov. Brown, of Georgia, has appointed this a day of fastimr and prayer, and requests the Army of Tennessee lo observe it. We have been fasting mo&t of the time for two years, but I am afraid not enough prayers are associated with the "fast'' to avail much. Sept. 10. Our corps was reviewed to-day by Gen. Hood, about K.0G0 in line. The re vival continues with unabated interest. Fverybody is trying to get religion. Let the good work go on, for they certainly need it. Shcman is enforcing his order expelling the white people from Atlanta. Federal army wagons bring tli refugees to l?ough Sharpshooter. and Ready, where ours meet and carry them beyond our lines. (Having had the misfortune to lose the little book in which 1 recorded my "ex periences" from Sept. 17 to Nov. 1, shortly after the war ended I wrote up as well as I could from memory the principal move ments of the army during this missing period, omitting of course many details and incidents of the march and the diffi culties which we had to encounter. If the Yankee who got my diar should ever see this and return it tome I will Well, I'll for give him and ask no questions about how he got it.) Sept. 17 to Nov. 1. Our truce expired on the 21st and it was soon apparent that act ive operations would be resumed in a short time, but of course we were ignorant of what the movement would be. Of one thing we were certain, that we were in no condition to meet Sherman in the open field, and that it must be another retreat or an attempt to get in his rear, cut off his supplies and force him back to the Tennes see River. President Davis visited us on the 2.ith, and the next day inspected the army. When riding along the lines many of the men called out loudly, "Give us John ston," "Send Gen. Johnston back and we will wliip Sherman yet," and many similar remarks to which the President made no reply. On the 28th we were formed in line, and not until the head of the column started northward did we know what direction we would take. We crossed the Chattahoo chee on the 20th, and our corps was de tached from the main army, Loring's Di vision striking the railroad at Acworth, where we captured a blockhouse, with 250 prisoners. French's Division attacked Allatoona.and after a desperate battle was repulsed by the garrison under Gen. Corse. We theh followed the railroad, tearing up many miles track, demolishing cars, and destroying everything which could be of any use to the Federal army. On the 10th of October we passed through the battlefield of New Hope Church. This battle was fought on the2.")th of May, when the trees were in full leaf, and by getting on an elevated p'ace we could see the line-of-battle stretching out for miles, and trace the exact position of the two armies by deadened timber from one-quarter to half-mile in width. I had often heard it remarked as being strange that so few men were killed in bat tie, considering the number of shots fired, but here was a visible solution of the mys tery. The trees between the lines were literally torn to pieces on both sides, and while quite a number of bullets struck as low as a man's head, a Jaige majority of them ranged from 10, 20 and 30 feet from the ground, proving that most of us, under the excitement, aimed too high. On Oct. 14 Sherman crossed the Chatta hoochee with 0",000 men and followed on our trail, but Gen. Hood, being unwilling to risk a battle, kept moving on, and after a chase of several days Sherman gave it up, returned to Atlanta, and shortly afterwards started on his memorable "March te the Sea." We reached Dalton on the 13th, where we captured 1,000 prisoners, 800 of whom were neros, and these were the last Federal troops we saw until wc arrived at Decatur, Ala. From Dalton we turned in a southwest erly direction and marched to Gadsden, Ala., where Gen. IJeauregard met us and a consultation was held to decide whether we should follow Sherman (as he wouldn't follow us) or go on into Tennessee. It was finally decided to go on and leave the enemy unmolested in their march through Georgia, rather an unusual thing for two opposing armies to be going as fast as they could in opposite directions. Accordingly the head of our column was turned northward again and after a few days of hard inarching through Sand Mount ains we struck the Tennessee Valley above Decatur, then down the Valley we went, and at Decatur found a garrison strongly fortified. We expected to have to storm the works, but I presume Ger. Hood thought it not of sufficient importance to justify tho loss it would necessarily entail to take the place. But, we remained here two or three days, during which time I had a little adventure which came near proving serious to me. Our company was sent out on picket and I was placed, say, 300 yards in advance i ot tite company, in the edge ol an old field. The country was open for half a mile or j more, and seeing no sign of an enemy, I walked out a short distance into the field io get me ucnem oi inc morning sun, ana taking a seat, thought I would have a good easy time, until my relief rame-around. But in this 1 was disappointed, forNl had scarcely got comfortably fixed when zip, is on every wrapper of CAST0HIA. ? tTs7tfSC3?. frSO ?r frvS. X??.fN, S -,?. mjjiSSSiiitd. 1KS3 ? i ,NVNlNSr I KCPBupyii bang, a bullet whi7?ed right by my ear. 1 saw the smuke rise from the tall weeds in front of me, but could not see the man, so 1 made the. best guess 1 could at tho exact snot, pulled Die trigger, and scampered back io the timber. Taking position H-lrnd a tree, 1 felt pretty safe, and after a short time ventured to peep around, when a puff of smoke frcm the stime spot caused ire to dodge behind the. tree iust in lime Io hear the bullet go by. I returned the fire as before, still not being able to sec my enemy, v. ho was hid den in the weeds about two hundred yards in front. We kept up an occasional firing for an hour or more, when it ceased, and I never knew what became of him; but. I presume he was out on a scout, and went on to find another picket who wasn't so well protected Gen. Hood intended to cross the Tennes see at or above Decatur, but by this time rations, which had been short ever since we left. Lovejoy, had about given out and we were unable to get subsistence from the country. So we turned down the river and reached Tuscumbia the latter part of October, where we went into camps. Being now within 18 miles of home, Henry, the negro boy who followed me from Cart ersvilie in the Spring, said he wanted to sec old "Marse" and old "Miss" so had, and as he had been very faithful cooking, carrying my knapsack, etc., I told him to go on and tell them I would be there as soon as 1 could get a furlough, and I lost no time in sending up an application for same. Our application for furlough came back to-day approved for 48 hours a short time indeed, but better than none. I accident ally met up with Brown Duckett, of 4th Ala. Battalion, (an old friend and school mate,) who had got a furlough to visit his uncle, in my neighborhood. I was very much pleased to have his company, and by 1 o'clock wc were ready lo start. A walk of live miles broucht us to Garner's Ferry, where we crossed the river and were warned by the old gentleman who ferried us over to keep off (be high ways and watch out for the Yankees, as we would be liable to run into a squad of scouts any time. So we turned down the river bottom and followed the timber until night set in. AVe then struck out across the couhlry. Rain began to fall and the night was fearfully dark, and we were groping along, discussing the probability of encountering a squad of Yankees, when we were startled by a challenge from the bushes on the roadside: "Halt; who come dab?" "A negro picket, by jingo," whispered Brown. "Squat, so if he shoots he'll shoot over us." We squatted and answered: "Friends; who are you?" The click of our rifles as we cocked them scared him as bad as he had scared us, and he was very prompt to explain: "Oil, 'souse me, boss! I thought you was some of de plantation niggers prowlin' 'round. If I had knowd you was white folks I never would have halted you; 'deed I wouldn't." We '"sensed" him and were very glad it turned out so favorably for us, for we were beginning lo fear we had got into serious trouble. He informed us there had been no Yankees in the neighborhood for several days, and we resumed our walk through the muddy lanes, the rain having by this time penetrated our clothing and wet us to the skin. We reached Mr. While's (Brown's uncle) at 10 o'clock, and after having dried our selves thoroughly, went to bed on the floor. The family insisted on us occupy ing the bed, but the sheets and pillow cases looked so white and clean we could not think of soiling them; being on a floor in a warm room by a good fire was so much belter than we had been used to, and more in keeping with our ideas of com fort than a feather bed would have been.

Her disease is paralysis, and at this writ ing the end is believed to he very near. "Mother" McKinley awoke on a recent morning to find herself unable to speak. She walked to the room of her daughter, woo saw that something was wrong, and called assistance. From that timo she grew worse. Arrangements were mado for constant communication with President McKinley, and as soon as ho could possibly leave Washington he hurried to her bedside, where were gathered tho rest of the family. Pressing cares of state made the Presi dent's visitshort. When he arrived at the home he found his mother in a comatose condition and growing weaker. His sister Helen said: "Mother, here is William. If vou recog nize him hold out your hand." Apparently, Mrs. McKinley endeavored to reach out toher son, who grasped her hand. She seemed to rally slightly again when some flowers came from the White House conservatory, and she signified her desire for one, which was handed her by the Presi dent. On Saturday afternoon last Mr. McKinley was obliged to return to Washington for tho opening of Congress. He bent over the bedside of his mother, spoke lovingly mid kissed her. But there was no response; no recognition. WtSssSaSiWM3' '''wKNh. ' ': -' y The Iiungs and Theft Diseases (.From Dr. Hunter ."Lecture on the Progress of Medical Science. The lungs are Alio great vital centre of the body on whlCn the health and proper action of all th n , -organs depend. If we cease to breathe for but five minutes, we are dead at the end of that time. In rare and exceptional cases the flame of life has been rekindled by artificial respiration, but, as a rule, people" iiound and well, when suffocated, are dead beyond restoration, at the end of five tfVinutes. Have you ever thought why thisWs? It is because the functions of every. Organ stop the moment we slop breathing. Breathing enables the heart, to beat, the blood to circulate and the brain to send forth 'sensation and motion to the entire body. The lungs, the brain and the heart constitute the tripod of life, and while they act we cannot die. The heart depends on the lungs for its power to circu late the blood, and tho blood depends on the lungs for its purification. Every mo ment of life carbonic acid is being gener ated in the blood by the action of the organ ism, and must be gotten rid of by the act of breathing. That is God's appointed way of purifying our blood. When we stop breathing wo retain tho carbonic acid, and five minutes accumulates sufficient in the blood to poison and stop ,tho whole ma chinery of life. All affections of the lungs are serious, however slight they may seem, because they prevent full and free breathing, and in the. same proportion injure the general health. Take, for example, a cold which by inflaming the .air tubes of the lungs, swells their mucous lining, diminishes their size and obstructs them by viscid secretions of mucous. As we cannot breathe through tubes that are narrowed and obstructed by matter in them, as well as through those that are open and free, so every cold while , it 1 fists injures our breathing, diminishes the purity of our blood, hurts our circulation, clogs the heart and irritates the nervous .system. All diseases which affect our lungs begin in the mucous lining of the air passages nose, throat, bronchial tubes. This mem brane is peculiarly exposed to cold, smoke, gas and other irritating and noxious mat ters in the air, all of which being drawn in with the breath inflame it and setup dis ease. But it is the chronic disease we have chiefly to consider in treating of lung dis eases. The acute stage passes away, leaving the patient jnlmostas well as be fore it, but more liable to occur again, until it settles into a confirmed, chronic catarrh, or bronchitis a condition of the lungs f 11 of interest, because so often mis taken, and so liable to be mistaken, for consumption, of yhfch, indeed, it is gen erally the forerunner.

Thoughts Upon National Egotism, Ita Usaa and Abnsas, Egotism is tbat quality inn individual or a people frkich leads to self-pruisa or glori fication. And ns every affirmative includes a negative, it is a quality which leada to the depreciation of others, and the denial to them of their just does. Egotism, rrithin bounds, is a good thing. No one ever knew a pereon dtvoid of self esteem who imcceded in accomplishing any thing worth while, either for himself or others. And no nation without strong self-assertive qualities has ever nmde im portant advances in civilization and prog ress. We must believe that we have the power to walk before we can walk. Many a timid child could run around long before he tio3 were he willing to make the attempt. Lot something divert hia attention from himself, and see how quickly he will go it alone. The Anglo-Saxon hss been the dominant force in every hind upon which he has set foot, because of his supreme egotism, joined to hardy powers of body and mind. With out egotism he would have continued a masterful brute; with it he takes the best in nny comnmuity or nation, and makes it his own, and then forgets that anybody else ever knew anything about it. Tina is why the average Englishman can see nothing good in a Frenchman or his country, to which he owes so much. This is why we Americans perpetually laud our own achievements, and ignore those of nations from which we have begged or borrowed much that v,- know and have. That kind of egotism which develops pride in our institutions, and makes us de sire to improve them by strengthening the weak poin ts aad defending the strong, is to be commended; bnt that other kind of egotism which makes the average after-dinner orator, or the speakers at school commencements, or on. holiday occasions, say tbat w have renched the acme of human perfection, is something very much to be deplored. As a rule, the man or woman who takes the timo and trouble to enlarge upon his or her virtues, abilities or attainments, is tho last person in the world to come out first heat in a competitive examination. Tho Japanese are an excellent case in point of the egotism that achieves, and the Chinese of that which holds back. Indi vidual or nation, let us work to earn the beat in everything. Solidity is as desirable as brilliancy. Even the toy balloon may sail high and look rery bright, bnt the puncture of a pin or a sudden puff of air will send it down to the gutter. Editor Loyal Home Workers. My attention was recently called to the National egotism which is found to a great extent, nod, I regret to Bay, ofttimts in our own L.H.W. You will readily agree tbat an egotistical person is at once branded as ridiculous; to the Baate extent does a nation appear ridiculous to other nations when its people express themselves in an egotistical manner about it. That our Nation ib the grandest one in existence is true, and does not expre33 ego tism, because it is not saying that it has never made a mistake; it is merely saying that it has made less mistakes than others. One of the objects is patriotism, and there is no more laudable ambition than to be a true, patriotic citizen ; yet it i3 very essen tial to the welfare of our objects that we do not, through egotistical patriotism, disgust many earnest, noble people who have equally as much love of country in their hearts, but have the good bciib8 and modesty to be con tent with the truth, striving by their lives and influence to make our National standard still batter. Let me say that "Truth crushed to earth will rise again," aud though broad assertions of our National infallibility may for a time impose upon a few, the belief that the United States sever has, never will, never can com mit an error, yet the truth will inevitably establish itself much to the detriment of our beloved country.
