Wounded. “Six hundred and forty-three wounded!" “If that were allMy wife spoke in a sad voice. “If that were all !” “The return was given as complete,” I said, referring again to the newspaper 1 held in un hand. “One hundred and forty-one killed,and six hundred and forty-three wounded.” “A fearful list; but it is not all,” my wife answered. Her tones were even sadder than at first. “A great many more were wouudeil —a great many more.” “But this is an official return signed by the commanding general.” “And so far, doubtless, correct. But from every battle field go swift-winged messengers that kill or wound at a thousand miles, instead of a thousand paces, bullets invisible to mortal eyes, that pierce loving hearts. Of the dead and wounded from these we have no rej«*rt. They are casualties uot spoken of by our com manding general.” I had not thought ol this; or, at least, not with any realizing sense of what it Involved. My. wife resumed: “Let us take the matter home. We have a son in the army. The ball that strikes him strikes us. If, in the list of killed and wound ed, we had found his name, w-ould there have been no bayonet point or shattering bullet in our flesh? 1 shiver at the thought. Ah. these invisible messengers of pain anil death wound often deeper than iron and lead.” As she thus spoke my eyes were resting on the official list, and I saw the name of a friend. An ejaculation ol surprise dropped from my lips. “What?” My startled wife grew slightly pale. “Harley is wounded!” “O, dear!” The pallor increased, and she laid her hand over her heart—a sign that she felt there. “Badly ?” She tried to steady her voice. “A ball through the chest. Not set down as dangerous, however.” “Poor Anna! What sad tidings for her!” My wife arose. “I must go to her immediate ly” “Do so,” I answered. Soon afterware we went out together; I to my office, and she to visit the wile of our wounded friend. It is strange how little those who are not brought into the actual preseuce of death and disaster on the battle-field realize their appnl- 1 ling nature. We read of the killed and wound ed, and sum up the figures coldly, almost, as if the statistics were simply commercial. We talk of our losses as indifferently as if meu were crates and bales. I do uot except my self. Sometimes 1 feel as though all sensibili ty, all sympathy for human suffering, had died out of my heart. It is, perhaps .as well. If w e perceived to the full extent the terrible reality i of things, we would be in half paralyzed states, instead of continuing our useful employments, by which the public good is served. We can not help the suffering, nor heal the wouuded, by our mental pain. But let us sec to it that through lack of pain we fail not in ministra tion to the extent of our ability. When I met my wife at dinner time, her face was paler than when I parted with her iu the ■norniug. I saw that she had been suffering while I, intent for hours upon my work, had half-forgotten my wounded friends,Harley and his wife; one pierced by a visible aud the oth er by an invisible bullet. “Did you see Anna?” I asked. “Yes.” “How is she ?” “Calm, but hurt very deeply. She only had the news this morning.” •»ls kIip irnimr f/i him “There has not been time to decide which is best Her husband's brother is here, and will get as much information by telegraph to-day ! as it is possible to receive. To-night or to morrow lie will start for the batlle-fleld. Anna tnay go with him.” “She appeared to be hurt very deeply, you i say ?” “Yes,” replied my wife; “and was in most intense pain. Every line of her fare exhibited suffering. One hand Wits pressed all the while tightly over her heart.” “What did you say ?” “Not much. She seemed looking into the distance, and trying to make out things seen but imperfectly. If he were to die, 1 think it would kill her.” “Two deaths by the same bullet,” I said, my thought recurring to our morning conversa tion. In the evening I called with my wife to see Mrs. Harley. A telegram had been received, stating that her husband's wound, though se vere, was not considered dangerous. The ball had been extracted, and he was reported to la* doing well. She was going to leave in the night train with her brotber-m-law, and would be with her husband in the quickest time it was possible to make. How a few hours of suffering hail changed her! The wound was very deep, and very painful. It was nearly two months before Harley was sufficiently recovered to l>e removed from tlie hospital. His wife had been permitted to see him every day, and to remain in attend ance on him for a greater part of tbe time. “Did you know that Mr. Harley and his wife, were at home?” said I, on coming in one day. “No! When did they arrive?” was the an swer and inquiry. “This morning. I heard it from Harley’s brother.’, “How are they?” asked my wife. “He looks as well as ever, 1 am told, though suffering from his wound; but she is misera ble, Mr. Harley savs. A shallow fell over my wife's lace, and she sighed heavily. “I was afraid of that,” she said. “I knew she was hurt badly. Flesh wounds close read ily, but spirit wounds are difficult to heal.— These invisible bullets are almost sure to reach some vital part,” I met Mr. Harley, not long afterward, in company with his wife. His eyes were bright Ins lips firm, and his cheeks flushed with’ health. You saw scarcely a sign of what he had endured. He talked in a brave, soldierly ■■Kuiui'i, nnii anxious ior me tunc lo come when the surgeon would pronounce him in a condition to join his regiment. His wound, when referred to, .evidently gave him more pleasure than pain. It was a mark of distinc tion—a sign that he had offered even life for his country. How different with Mrs.Harley! It touched you to look at her dreamy, absent eyes—on her patient lips, and exhausted countenance. “She has worn herself out in nursing me,” said her husband, in answer to a remark on her appearance. He looked at her tenderly, with just a shade of anxiety in his face. Was the truth not plain to him ? Did he not know that she had Iteen wounded also? That two balls left tne rifle when he was struck, one of them reaching to his distant home? “In three weeks I hope lo be in the Held again, and face to lace with the enemy.” He spoke with the ardor of a strong desire, his eyes bright, and his face in a glow—wound ing, and the pain of wounding, all forgotten. Hut another’s eyes became dim as his bright ened—another's cheeks paled as his grew warm. I saw the tears shining as Mrs. Har ley answered, in an unsteady voice: “I sin neither brave enough, nor strong enough fer a soldier’s wife.” She had meant to say more, as was plain from her manner: but she could not trust her self. “O, yes, you are; brave enough and strong enough,’ replied Mr. Harley, with animation. 4‘Not every one could have moved so calm ly amidst the dreadful scenes of a camp hos pital, after a battle. I watched you often, and felt proud of vou.” “If she had not been wounded, also,”—my wife began; but Mr. Harley interrupted her with the ejaculation, “Wounded?" in a tone of surprise. “Yes, wounded,” resumed mv wife; “and, as now appears, nearer the seat of vitality than you were. Did you not know this before, Mr. Harley ?” My friend was perplexed for a little while. He could not get down at once to my wife’s meaning. “When you was struck, she was struck, al so !” “O, yes!” Light broke in upon Mr. Harley. He turn ed ijuickly towrard his wife, and saw in her face what had not been seen before, the wasting 1 and exhaustion that came from dee|>-seated pain. He had thought the paleness of her countenance, the weakness that made her step slow and cautious, only the result of over-tax ed muscles and nerves; but he knew better now. 4*I didn't tliink nf tlinf ’’ li« cowl anxiety, as lie gazed into his wife’s counte nance. “Our wounds so ghastly to the eyes, often get no deeper than the flesh and bone. The pain is short, and nature comes quickly to the work of cure with all her healing energies. We suffer for a while and then it is over. We are strong and ready for the conflict again.” “Hut." said my wife, “into the homes that stand far away trom battle-fields come swift winged messengers that wound and kill as surely as iron hail. They strike mothers, wives, sisters—some with death wounds, all with tile agony of vital pain. Alas! for these wounded! The healing, if it follows, is never, as the surgeons say, by tirst intention, hut al-' ways slow, and often through abscess and ul ceration. They must linger lor years, hut do not lose the marks of suflbring.” A long silence followed. There were others present.who, like Mr. Harley, had never thought of this. I noticed that for the hour we remained together, he was tenderer toward Ids wife, and more than oflee I saw him look- . ing at her, while slie was not observing him, with a troubled countenance. Ho did not I again speak of the early period at which lie expected to join his regiment. On the day following, another long list was given to the public. As I read over the names and counted the number*. my thought came back from the bloody field and suffering hospi tal. “These are not all.” I said. “Alas! not all. The hail struck twice, thrice—sometimes nftencr. There is pain, there is anguish, there is wounding, even unto death, in many, many homes, within a thousand miles of that gory place. Some are alone and neglected—dying on their buttle field, with none to put even a cup of water to their lips—some are with lov ing friends who yet fail to staunch the flow of blood, or bandage the shattered limb—some cover their wounds, hiding them from all eyes, and liear the pain in chosen solitude. The sum of all this agonv. who shall give it?’’ Our wounded! If you find them all, you must look lieyond our hospitals. They arc not every one bearded and in male attire. There sat beside you in the car, just now, a woman. She left at the corner below. There was not much life iu her face; her steps, as they rest ed on the pavement, were slow. She lias lieen wounded and is dying. Hid you notice Mrs. —at church last Sunday ? “Yes; and now I remember that she was pale and lutd an alter ed look.” One of our wounded! Do you see a face at the window? “In the marble front bouse?” Yes. “It is sail enough; what in-looking eyes!” Wounded! Ah! sir, they are every where about us. Already, from over a hundred battle-fields and skirmishing grounds, there have been sueli missives as pain and death. They have penetrated unguarded homes in every city, town and neighliorhood of our once happy and peaceful country, wounding the beloved ones there in hoped for security. For such there is halm only in Gilead—God is their physician. Heart Quarter*. Camp Aukaham Lixroi.it, I Portland, Sept. It), 1862.) GENERAL ORDER No. 8.
