At Itelmont, Mo., opposite ColiimbiH.
ICy.. the Confeiler.ite general. Poll;,
had established a camp of observation,
o"euplrd by one regiment of Infantry,
a battery of nrtlllrrjviiHl u squadron
of caxnlry In order to coiiiiuand Iho
approaches to tills position by the
Confederate batteries on the' high

been felled for some distance along

decided to attack. Accordingly, nt
ub ut S o'clock on the morning of the
"lb, he disembarked bis force on tho
Missouri shore, some live miles nbove
Ilelinont. nnd ordered the gunboats to
drop below nnd enrago the batteries at
Columbus. Quickly forming his col
umn. Grant pushed for the Confeder
ate camp, hoping to (alio tho Confeder
ates by surprise.
Grant's Foe He-enforced.
In this, Im was partly mistaken, for
General Polk, who was nt Columbus,
lied been uotllled of tho landing of
Pedernl troops on the west shore of
tho Mississippi nnd piomptly dispatch
ed General Gideon J. Pillow with four
regiments to succor tho threatened
camp. This re enforcement raised tho
defenders of Ilelinont to nbont .'l.OOi)
men, with six cannon. Grant had
about .1,(100.
After inarching n tnllo through n
wooded swamp tho Federal column
reached n cornfleld, nnd tho Seventh
Iowa deployed as skirmishers among
the tall stalks to Hie farther edge of
tho flold. A company of Confederate
was In biding beyond Iho Held nnd
tired nt tho lowans, killing one man.
A lino of battle was quickly formed,
nnd Iho tvholo command moved on
ward through tho woods. The fight
ing wns stonily nnd continuous from
Hint point to tho Confederate works.
The way was obstructed by heavy nn
derbrusli nnd fallen trees, and tlio
men had to climb over or crawl under
tho obstacles us best tbey could, tho
while keeping n lookout for tho ene
my, in places tho ground wns
swampy,, nnd between lighting, find
ing n road and waiting for the cannon
to bo dragged along with tho column,
tho march wus slow nnd difficult.
Officers Chosen Targets.
Tho delay gave tho enemy tlmo to
select positions nnd get in good shots.
At tho end of a nlllo tlio tvholo lluo
wns held up by n now obstacle, a sort
of secondary river bank that formed
n tmlural breastwork fc- tho Confcd
crates. Grant's column had nlso got
within range of tho fleldpleccs nt Itel
mont and of tho heavy guns nt Colum
bus, and shot and bIioII toro through
the forest, giving tho fnrm boys n
tnsto of real war. Tlio Confederate
riflemen were favored with picked
shots, nnd Grant's olllcers nnd men
fell rnpldly. General .1. A. MeCler,- !
nr.nd, second In command to Grant,
had thiee horses shot tinder him ono
nftrr another. Colonel I.aumnn of tho
Seventh Iowa lost his horso In this
net Ion nnd wns afterward severely
wounded lilnrelf The mounted men
wcro clioscn targets, and several of
ho staff wcro unhorsed. Grant's
torso was shot under blin. Grant's
plan of nttnek was to keep tlio left
Link near the titer to-pretent rc-ou-forcemeats
from crossing over from
Columbus and by spreading out tlio
line parllnlly surround tho Confcdcr-
j nto cntnp. A united effort In tho an-

being one by tho roughness of the
iKiuuu'i, u.itvu lot enemy .mm iui-
! embankment through the woods to nn
'open space around the inclined line.
When Oram's excited soldiers saw
close at hand tho dellant Hag waving
j above tho guns nnd Confederates run
ning Duett ncross tlio item tneir en
thiislasui knew no bounds.
The spreading of Grant's line creat
ed n pap In the ranks opimslte the ene

ed Into the sp.iie and In n fow mo
ments dnit a the gunners from their
pieces with n hot tire of bullets, A
rush of tho whole line preclpltalrd ii
stampede In the enemy's ranks, and
Giant's men swarmed nbont the flag
pole, tent.i -itid ennnun like bees around
an upturned lilvi. It was their fivt
light, their llrst vle'lory nnd t'rst sei.uio
of tho spoils of war. Olllcers nnd rol
dlers alike jumped upon tint gun car
riages and platform and delivered tlow
ery speeches to their comrades, who
cheered themselves hoarse, nnd tho
battle, as Grant himself declared, was
soon turned Into a Fourth of July
orgy of bubbling eloquence.
Itut tliu Confi derates had not aban
doned tho Missouri bank only dropped
down under the. bluff out of range.
No ono demniided their surrender, for
tho victors seemed to think that the
position, tho armament and tho camp
vera tho sole objective of tho cam
imlgn. iVheu tho guns at Columbus nt
tempted to lire upon the Invading mob
nt Itelmont tho shots passed over, to
tho merriment of Grant's men. They
changed their tune, however, the lini
ment their enemies under tho river
bank began to climb lall tiees and send
bullets Into tlio captured ramp.
Successful Flank Attack.
About that tlmo sevcinl steamers
loaded with Confederates tvero seen In
the river steering for tho shorn nhovo
Ilelinont, between Grant's column nnd
the landing. Then began n general nv
trout, nnd from that lime on mill tlio
transports weio reacbul thp march
wns ono continuous brush tight. "The
Confederates were ut homo oi the
ground. Grant's soldiers were nearly
exhausted Jiy tlio e.v'iltement of tho
day and tho labors of tho march, but
they gallantly fought their way to tho
landing. It wns (hero Hint Grant's,
liorto performed the dllUcult feat of
trotting nboard over u slnglo plank
ttvclvo or fifteen feet long.
This Midden turn of Grant's fortunes
bad boon brought nbont by the prompt
nnd energclle action of General Polk,
tho "rtoldler lllshop," ns soon ns he
discovered that General PHIow'h forco
was being defeated. Tho Federal gun

Dupont leads the Attack.
Dupont's task at Port Hoynl was tho
dangerous one of attacking land fortifi

The guns raked the channel for n long:

Hiifllcloutly near the vnrks to get their

anchored just out of gunshot.
Moving nt the rate of sir tullea an
