letter fro. Harper's Ferry.
IIarpkk’8 Ferry, Sept. 20,1862.
Kl>. Press :—Dear Sir:—When I wrote
you last, I UtUe thought that letter was to
be the hyphen conneeting me witli the outside
world fbr Mtree mortal weeks. But so it proved.
The next day our empty hospital quarters
were turned into barracks and occupied by
some three hundred scared, weak-backed cow
ardly sneaks, who became suddenly afflicted
with crick-iu-tbe-back, pain-ln-the-stomach,
weakness in the knees, <Src.,—contracted in an
ticipation of a visit from Stonewall Jackson.
It was laughable, however, to see now rapid
ly they recovered the day afterward, when it
was discovered that the said “Stonewall" was
paying bis special attention to Frederick,—a
city some twenty-two miles below us. This
lien’s gave us all breathing time, ami for near
ly two weeks we looked for reinforcements
daily—ouly hoping meanwhile Unit our doubt
ful commander would be superseded. It
proved, however, that we hoped against hope.
The surrender which occurred Monday, A.
M-, Sept. 15, at 7 1-2 o'clock precisely—had
been a foregone conclusion for two weeks.
But I anticipate. I had, as you know, got
ready to leave this post, and hoped for a
glimpse of dear old Portland, before another
Sabbath sun.
Thursday the 4th, the Railroad bridge at
Monocracy, was blown up;—of course jour
Jieying was out of the question. Our hospital
being re-occupied, I transferred three hundred
sheets and pillow-cases, two hundred shirts,
it fly l>ed sacks, fifty quilts, seventy-five pillows,
one hundred handkerchiefs, two CAses of band
ages, eighteen quart jars of currant jelly, Ac.,
Ac., to the Steward of the regiment, occupy
ing the quarters, and removed my personal ef
fects to the house formerly occupied by Quar
termaster Dodge and family, just opposite the
hospital.
Day by day for two weeks, we waited for a
turn in the tide. On Saturday the l.'ltli, a tre
mendous firing commenced on Maryland
Heights, about 8 o'clock, lasting some three
hours. The musketry then ceased on both
sides, and our gunners had the field to Diem
selves. They continued to fire at Intervals nil- j
til 5 P. M., not prorating, however, a ningle \
»hot in reply ; yet, to the indignant surprise
of every one, at that hour, the stars and stripes
were pulled down, our cannon spiked, our men
retreating, and Die key to our defence com
pletely abandoned. After that hour, during
(Saturday, not a rebel appeared In sight, nor at
any time during the Beige did a rebel appear
again’on the heights. Col. Ford of the 32d
Ohio, has the honor of ordering the abandon- i
ment of the post, and the lookers on devoutly j
pray it may be the last time lie will have the
opportunity to disgrace himself in a public ca- !
pacify.
Our loss Saturday was teu killed, and about
sixty wounded. Of the killed two perished by
the bursting of a shell that was being rammed
home,—so that our great loss—as reported,
was not enough to warrant a surrender so long j
ns we still hud eleven thousand effective men. ;
Sunday morning, Sept. 14, Die cannonading
dn our pait was resumed, but elicited no reply 1
until 2 1-2 P. M., when, to the astonishment of |
all, the enemy otiened ou us from two batteries
from Loudon Heights.
During some two hours the fall of shot and
shell on ImDi sides was incessant. At this
time, I think I may conclude myself ns having
been in great personal danger; no less than
four shells and a slug falling within ten feet of
me. For about two hours “they peppered us.”
As fast as a shell fell,I picked it up, and intend
to carry home my own four or five proofs of
narrow escape in time of peril. .Some of our
hospital tents were riddled by shell, but fortu
nately not one exploded, and consequently no
body was hurt. When we heard them whiz
zing, we dodged, and so escaped. Seriously,
however, had one or eitiicr of mv nrooortiun
■ of shell exploded, my epitaph would have been
writteu long ere this. After the first fire, one
feels quite composed. The boys laughed to
see me go and pick up my shells; the slug, a
piece of iron six inches long, being so hot 1
could not hold it. 1 held on to my trophies
however, and would have volunteered gather
ing the entire crop, had I supposed our gun
ners would have re-mailed them to Loudon
Heights. Sunday passed, and Monday dawned.
Our killed and wounded of Sunday were—0!
Monday A. M., at daylight, the enemy open
ed from four points, and our batteries returned
the Arc. Not a shot took effect, and not a
man was wounded, when Col. Miles,—the gal
lant (?)—as the Clipper has it, hoisted a hand- i
kerchiefs upon a pole as a signal of surrender.
Perliope—that signal was not soon enough [
observed—and. pcrhajtt it was. Anyway, the
enemy gave us one more shell, and the Colo- ;
nel's leg being in the way, as a consequence I
he was fatally wounded.
The rage, the indignation, the surprise, the
mortification of eleven thousand men, und one
woman, it is impossible for me to describe.
Xot a musket had been fired, not a foe liad
been met. Only a “splendid artillery duel”—
and a surrender. That is all!
“They say” we were short of ammunition.—
In the street below were six Ibur-horse teams,
loaded with ammunition—and I saw four nag
on loads stowed away Sunday, at midnight,
in a room not a stone's throw from the table at
wldeh I am now writing.
We had hundreds of thousands of pounds of
ammunition, and eleven thousand Enfield ri
fles, not one of which was used. If this is be
ing short, I confess I don’t understand the
meaning of the word.
“They say,” also, we were short of ratious.
Well, the rebels carried away hardbreak, rice,
coffee, sugar, molasses, pork, beef, and beans,
for three days steadily, and then finished up
by burning car load after car load of rice and
beans; the air even now is full of the odor of
burning beans.
I am not telling you guess-work, nor “they
say,” when I assure you we could have held
out ten days longer, had Col. Miles so ordered.
Instead of a word of encouragement to onr
men, I am told that Monday morning, an hour
before the surrender, Col. Miles sent up to the
entrenchments, and told the men it would lie
useless to fight, as they would all bo in h— in
less than an hour. My informants are Capt.
Ward, and Lieut. G. A. Bauta, of the X. Y.
12th,—two brave, but mortified officers, who
took breakfast with me the next morning.
Finding on Monday that the rebels were to
get everything, and having seven pieces of
“animated ebony” to feed, I obtained a two
horse wagon, wcut to the commissary stores,
loaded up coffee, tea, sugar, rice, bacon, and
candles, Ac., &c., and had it driven home.—
While loading, Stuart's cavalry came up, and
asked what I was getting. I said, “by the
cartel private property is to be respected.”—
“Oh yes,” they replied, ami rode off. I was
stopped no less than three times while going
through the street with the team,—but the
“private claim” was quite sufficient protection.
As a consequence 1 have been able to feed
nineteen people, the entire week, and will do
the same for a week to come, by which time,
please Heaven, we may find a rescue.
The mortification of tiie surrender was in a
degree compensated for to the soldiers in the
death of Col. Miles. Hut there is oue feature
in the case for which there can be no compen
sation. It is well known that the slaves follow
in the wake of our army; an immense num
ber of these poor God-forsaken creatures had
sought protection in the Ferry, but Col. Miles
had iuvariably refused to let them pass over
the H. A O. R. R., always promising their mas
ters that they should sometime lie returned
to them. Indeed, he had ordered the return
of some, but the troops rescued them, and
ducked the owner, so that slave hunting for
the time being was abandoned.
But with the influx of rebel troops came
♦ »»«» Isiiman . C It..'._ _
Every nook, corner, cranny, barn, anil stye lias
been searched, and men, women, and little
children in droves, have been carried off.
Our hospital laundresses, and our men serv
ants, without a word of warning, were seized
upon and carried home, or shut up in Charles
ton jail.
In this matter, however, secesh is at fault to
the tune of seven, to my personal knowledge.
I am almost tired of night-watching, and my
revolver begins to grow heavy. It holds but
five balls, bnt before secesh get* my seven eb
onies, my body will pay for the two balls want
ing. Ob, (bis traffic In human flesh! Heav
en send the day when the African shall cease
to lie born with a black skin. For this let
Christians pray, instead of wasting breath in
behalf of hard-hearted masters, for I am mor
ally certain it would require a lesser miracle
to change the skin of the negro, than the hearts
of their owners.
This has been an anxious week. We have
buried seventeen men just opposite my wiu
ilow, under an apple tree, without shroud or
coffin. The rebel surgeons took sheets, shirts,
bandages, A-C., from the hospital, together with
several jars of currant jelly; but, upon the
whole, robbed us of less than could be expect
ed. Yesterday they wholly evacuated the
town; but, from the rapid cannonading heard
in the distance, we judge they have found an
avenger.
As they blew up the It. H. bridge, and burn
ed the pontoon, of course there is no such
thing as getting away from this place, unless
we ford the river. This I am not prepared to
do, as my notions of personal salvation involve
the saving of my chest of clothing, and good
Mr. Jewett's keg of tamarinds, which keg
goes to Baltimore with me, and I am not able
as yet, to carry as much upon my back.
I had “beam tell” of the secesh army, but
God forbid my ever looking upon such an un
godly crew again. Just suppose a meal bag
draggled through the mud, dipped in bacon
fat, and stuffed with rags, animated, and you
have a decent representation of a live secesh;
especially the live part—for the vermin fre
quently dropped |rom their clothes as they
walked the street. Faugh! and then to think
they drove our troops out of town like cattle!
Well, it may be as secesh says; they say our
men are so well dressed they don't dare light,
for fear of spoiling their clothes. 1 am sorry

12 1-2 M. Saturday. Our blue coats arejust
coming over Maryland Heights, and I have
screamed myself hoarse in gladness. Who they
are, or where from, we cannot as yet tell, but
they are blue coats and carry muskets. We
can see the bayonets glitter in the sun.
May he our desolated town is to he the scene
oi another battle. If it proves as bloodless as
the last, and our troops turn drivers, I shall lie
content to Ik- a spectator. Otherwise I shall
pray earnestly for my proposed regiment ol old
women, each armed with a broom, and we
will see what can be done toward sweeping out
both sides.
It is a lamentable truth that our officers come
into the service more frequently for pay, than
for patriotism. Each one has a copy of the
Regulations in his pocket, and “lie'll be d—dif
he'll do so and so, unless he has ail the law al
lows him.*’ When he has what the law allows
him it takes a four horse team to drag it from
place to place. Then the men must carry a
knapsack of notions. A rubber cloth,a blank
et and an overcoat, together with an Enfield
rifle, and thus encumbered they are marched
at double quick up hill into battle. With 50
pounds strapped to their shoulders, a musket
weighing 18 pounds in their hands .ami u cart
ridge box containing forty rounds,they are ex
pected to tight like heroes, while their officers
prance gaily along on horseback.
“Secesh,” on the contrary, goes in with bare
feet, tattered trowsers, may-lie and may-be
not a coat, a musket and cartridge box—offi
cers ditto. Indeed, you cannot tell an officer
from a private by any visible sign. When it
ruins secesh lets it rain; when the sun comes
out he gets dry agaiu. Some of the rebel sol
diers assured me they had been on the march
forty days; had been in seven fights; had lived
on roasted corn and hard-bread, and had slept
in the hushes or cornfields without a shelter
Hie whole time, and they never thought of
complaining of the hardship, for their officers
shared every hardship with them. I could
well believe the story, for their shrunken eyes
and attenuated limbs bore witness to their
feeling. As a body, the army is weary of the
war,—but they say they are in for the tear.
I asked several if they had ever been paid ?
They said no, not a cent. We don't fight for
pay—we fight for victory. Patriotism, graded
all tlie way from$2o to $250 a man, is unknown
among them; and they don't think of com
plaining if they don’t get their full rations per
day.
1 sometimes wonder whether we don’t do a
trifle too mnch for our soldiers. We are so
tender of them and load them down with so
many things that they are really burdensome.
Secesh soldiers say they don’t begin to get
the “good things” the Union soldiers have,
but they always add, “we dont want them;
they would hinder our traveling if we were
obliged to tote them.”
The 10th Maine owe secesh a debt I hope
they will sometime pay. The box of bundles
of sundries sent by various friends when I
was last at home, fell into their hands, except
the packages for Elias Wormrell of Saco and
Eli Webb of Sacarrappa. The box was at the
depot, ready to be sent on when i could learn
the whereabouts of the regiment, and was
seized. I went and demanded it as personal
property, but secesh needed clean shirts, col
lars, socks, Ac., and they took letters and all.
Jt was useless to insist, so I just told Col.
Thomas and the Quartermaster we would re
turn the compliment when tee found them the
owners of equally valuable articles, though 1
feared the day of rerkttning would in that
case be postponed indefinitely.
I am sorry for the mishap, but what could I
do? The surrender was never dreamed of,
and of course 1 could not hide a large case of
bundles after the. town was full of soldiers.
Had I foreseen the result, I would have burned
every package before it could have failed into
their hands. As it is, the shirtless and stock
ingless of the 10th Maine must exact paynfent
at the point of the bayonet, for the lucky pos
sessors of these articles will be readily distin
guished among the shirtless and shoeless crew.
Sunday Moon, Sept. 21.—Two of our sol
diers have called, and tell me it is Hanks's di
vision across the river and the 10th Maine are
with them. If that is so, the shirts will be
recovered before the rebels have worn “the
new” off, for they are closely pursued and
probably in a tight place, and consequently if
they slip through at all, it will be in a state of
nature. Like the eel, they will cast their
skins, {. c., shirts, and flee. So please don’t
lay this mischance too sorely to heart.
Keening.—This has'been an exciting day.
Our troops are crossing and some are already
encamped nil ooiisar limgliu. seeing tnetn
go up so cheerily reminded me of a circum
stance that occurred on the same Heights last
Monday evening. I had been in the habit of
going up to the fortifications morning and
evening, for some tine past, anil talking with
the guard, as well as visiting the sick in camp.
One little fellow used to declare that lie
would necer surrender his gun. Monday put
his courage to the test. When ordered to
stack his gun, he said “never!” and struck it
furiously across a stump; the gun was loaded,
and as he broke it, it went off, the charge en
tered his abdomen, and he died next day. If
that young martyr's “never” could be made to
ring in the ears of commanders, there would
be fewer surrenders.
One thing should be mentioned to the credit
of our soldiers. Many of them before they
stacked their guns, removed the spring from
the lock, thus rendering them useless; and
cartloiuls of broken muskets lie about in every
encampment,
I do not mean to bore you with long letters,
hut knowing that a statement from an eye-wit
ness is better than a “guess so” from an out
sider, I have gone into details more closely
than would otherwise be endurable, or com
mendable.
For proof of cowardly treachery on the part
of Col. Miles, I will refer to the officers and
men of the 12th, 111th and 120th New York
Volunteers, :{2d and 87th Ohio, and 8th N. Y.
Cavalry.
For proof of sufficient supplies, ask any man,
woman, or child, made the mortified witness
of cart-load after cart-load taken through our
streets, or the Quartermaster of the post, Capt.
Rutherford.
In proof, that, notwithstanding I have “seen
a battle” “I still live,” wattless my autograph.
Loyally, though indignantly, vours,
