Letter from the 23th Maine.
Camp of the 25th Mai.vk, )
Chantilly, \*a., April 8, 1SC3. J
To the Editor of the l'rex» :
Grateful for, yet unable to answer the
many letters of kind inquiry, in relation to my
self aii<l the nohle regiment with which I am
connected, permit me, through your eolu : ns,
to inform all interested in my welfare that
my heaJth iajtud has been good since my con
nection with the army, ami that I feel perfect
ly satisfied with my post, fare and duty. As
for the 25tb, other οι the nine months regi
ments may have seen more lighting, but I
will nature to assert that noue are more
ready or willing to perform the duties as
signed them, whether of guarding, digging,
marching, fighting or eating. It is no dispar
agement to other regiments of brave men
from our own patriotic State, to say that we
are proud of tlie 25th and her noble officers.
From the vigilance shown by Col. Kemen
den (our brigade commander) and staff, no
fears need be entertained of Moseby's catch
ing any deejtcre in our ramp.
Our .Surgeon. I)r. Carr, and assistant, I)r.
Bowker, are efficient, energetic and kind. Dr.
True, I regret to say, by order from the chief
of his department, has left us to occupy some
other post. Perfect harmony, as heretofore,
is maintained among the officers of the line.
1 have the vanity to believe that Co. II, though
made up of barbers, sailors, machinists, car
penters, farmers, draymen, merchants, clerks,
teachers, tailors, policemen, doctors aud min
isters, gentlemen of leisure and serving men,
is the equal of any in the regiment in endur
ance, courage, drill and discipline. Our
worthy commander, Capt. Chase, is well de
serving the good reputation be has gained,
and with our jolly 1st Lieut. Knights none can
be sad, and where duty calls or rations are
served you will be apt to And him. As for
our 1st Sergeant, Win. C. Brooks, he is a ter
ror to evil doers, and a praise with those who
do well. ·
The health of the regiment is quite good,
though some are afflicted with severe colds,
occasioned in part, perha|>s, by our change of
place, and the unavoidable exposure connected
with it. Last Saturday night and Sunday we
were visited by the heaviest fall of snow that
we have had since our arrival in Virginia.
The weather of late has been unusually cold
aud stormy, yet I am confident a large majori
ty prefer to remain where we are, or to ad
vance, if ordered, rather than to return to our
old camp on Arlington Heights.
Aside from the mad rebellion, that caused
us to leave our quiet homes and peaceful pur
suits, our greatest grief is the ]K>litieal war
the professed friends of the Union so reckless
ly prosecute against the Administration aud
all its measures. Our government was en
dangered, its laws defied and its Constitution
trampled under the feet of traitors. The con
stituted authorities called us to avenge the vi
olated law, and enforce submission to the Na
tional Constitution upon the States which hail
denied it* right and defied its power to con
trol them longer than their whims might in
duce them to remain iu the Union. We loved
our country aud it* form of government, re
spected its laws and obeyed the commands of
the legal Executive. These profenttxlfriend»
of our cause promised to feed our families.
They did it; it is well. They put money iu
our pockets, anus in our bauds, and bade us
go, put down the rebellion, go to the field of
slaughter, the great charnel house, where thou
sands on thousand.-, from homes a« dear and
friends as loved, had gone liefore us.
We have coine, aud now look on the bones
Chantilly. Will these hearth·" demagogue!*
that we share their late ? Is this the sesame
to their coffers ? To regain what they had
lost and never could hope to recover by means
honorable and human, do they pay us and
speed us to these slaughter pen*, then whet our
enemies knives and encourage them to the
work of death ?
We are tired of this reiterated cry of "Abo
lition war." That the negro is the stay of
the rebellion, there is not a soldier in the ser
vice of the United States, capable of appreci
ating a plain fact but knows full well. But the
negro is not all. The soldiers heart sorrows
and sickens at the exhibition. Vile and trea
sonable sheets are sent to our camps, filled
with exaggerated accounts of our reverses,
grave doubts of our llual success, labored ef
fort* to destroy coufideuce in our command
ers, alarming statement* of the expense of the
war, and endeavors to break down the nation
al credit- In short every vile means is used
to discourage our hearts and weaken our arms,
and to convince Jefl. Davis and all mankind
that the rebellion can never be put down, till
the Democracy, like Poiapeii,shall experience
a rwurrectton. And then, their croaking over
election gains! more iniuute in summing them
up than in counting the graves of the slain ;
more rejoicing over a fancied political victory
in one small borough in Maine, than for the
occupation of New Orleans I
I am no politician ; 1 never was. Yet I came
with my comrades to offer my Iife.il the poor
sacrifice must be made, to aid In the restora
tion of her Constitution to its rightful domain,
and in planting our glorious old flag where
ignoble and polluted hands have torn It down.
In our absence, these fiend-ridden swine,
whose bowlings are heard all over our land,
have tilled our homes with anguish and des
pair, end alarmed our mothers, wives and chil
dren, till their letters are laden with beseech
ing* for our return and the abandonment of
this "wicked Abolition war." But let them
beware ! Tlie great army of the Republic U
loyal to the government.
But our pleadings are unlieanl, an<l com
plaint* bootless, or answered with ridicule and
contempt. A voice from the army is out of
time and tune. These night birds of the
North mould be the only exponents of the feel
ings and sentiments of the army. But let this
infernal mud dry up. and the soldiers will Rive
their own views in nef», to the rebels, northern
traitors, ami the world. If successful, a na
tion's redemption will lx> their reward. If de
feated. their graves shall tell posterity that the
Kepnhlic was not overthrown without an ef
fort for its salvation, and that all were not
traitors to their own interests, to the land of
their birth, to the toil, blood and graves of
their sires, to human progress and to their
God.
But 1 took tip the pen only to crave a small
space in your columns, to inform my numer
ous friends of my good condition. Our es
teemed friend and truly patriotic fellow sol
dier, Corp. Kllingwood is with us.and still suf

Small Farm* most Profitable!
The Hannibal & St. Joseph Railroad runs over two
hundred miles through one of tin· richest and health
iest agricultural and pastoral regions on this conti
nent, and millions of acres of unoccupied praries,
interspersed with timber on either side of its track,
are free to be us<»d for grazing or pasturage purposes,
thus avoiding cost, taxes and interest on any amount
of land wanted by the most ambitious for large op
erations. All the laud it is advisable to buy is a suf
ficiency for buildings, yards, apple and peach or
chards, vineyardsaud crop*, to be fenced; for set
tlers of insufficient means to buy more is unwise, be
cause money invested in sheep aud young stock will
more than double annually, and this pays better than
speculating in land, even in Northern Missouri. Get
rich in this rare way first aud then invest funds in
surplus land if desired.
A GRATUITY Γ0
Wool-Growers and Stock Eaiiers,
Who should understand at thie time, the great ad
vantages to be gratuitously enjoyed by them in
Northern Missouri.
Any quantity of superior liay can be cheaply and
readily obtained without trespassing upon the rights
of any, for if the grass is not cut from the prairies
and gathered, it rots or is destroyed by fire. But lit
tle hay is needed, as the winters are mild and short
and the "blue grass" of the country furuinhes ex
cellent grazing even in mid winter. How long this
op|H>rtnuity for gratuitous and superior pasturage
and fodder will continue, it ie impossible to tell;
doubtless the rapid march of freedom will cut it
short by inducing an immense emigration, but as the
Railroad Company aud nou-resident eoeenl*t«r«nwn
all the laud, except a suiall'.proportion occupied by a
very sparse population, the strong probability is that
Wool Growers ami large Stock Raisers can enjoy
the present facilities long enough with proper enter
prise, to accumulate independent fortunes before the
present vacant lands are purchase and nettled ho as
to circumscribe ample ranges for their stock. Thue
poor men can use and virtually own larger and more
productive farms in Missouri than rich meu do or
ever cau in the Eastern .States.
NO ΒΕΤΓΕΙΙ REGION.
Much hue been said and written to Wool Growers
and Stock Raisers in behalf of the claims of Texas
but aside from greater complicity and injury iu the
rebelliou, its remoteness from all the best markets,
its liability to frequent and severe drouths, numerous
sudden and great changes in the temperature of its
climate, make it a region far inferior to Northern
Missouri. It should be remembered that Missouri is
within t h ret day»' cheap trare! from any Atlantic
city, in direct and rapid communication by water,
rail and telegraph with ail home markets and the
commerce οί the world.
SECESSION PLAYED OUT.
Mibpouri ib Loyal. It is now perfectly «aft and
protitable to emigrate, especially to Northern Mis
souri. The State will soon be free. Her central po
sition, controlling free labor interests, and her great
and increasing majority of patriotic and loyal citi
zens, demand and guarantee this beyond the shadow
of a doubt ; ultra pro-slavery opposers concede this.
FREE-STATE COLONIES.
Large and choice bodies of land offered,fhrnish for
Colonies every desirable facility. Evidently it Is the
best policy to emigrate in colonies. It is easy, prac
tical, and most beneficial. It only requires co-oper
ation, with some one or more a* a committee, to cor
respond with and combine individual action. This
plan secures desirable neighbors, creating among
them a strong bond of union; it increases social eu
joymeut, and the outlay of money aud labor by each
in improvements, benefits the others, and adds large
ly to the value of their neighboring farms.
Ferions disposed to form Colonies by makiug the
proper efforts, costing little but their time and atten
tion, will find it for their interest to confer with the
