Gent... Grant During the Battle of the
/, Wilderness.
j Gen; Grant’s heaiftiuarters were located •
in a fleld betweeo the plank road and a
small rgadleading to a.little hamlet kuown
as Parker’s store. Purjng the,fight, how
ever, he was principally with General
'Meade, 1 whose headquarters were on a , P>-
riey knrill In' the rear Of Warren’S corps.—
had seen Grant at Vicksburg and iii Te
n. nesßeey and-h-ia appearance was familiar ;
hat as lhrough the group of offi
cers reclining under the trees at headquar
ters, 1 looked for-him some .time in vain,
such was his insignificant, unpretending,as
pect and conduct, while the, battle was rag
ing in all fury. A stranger to the insigria
of military rank Would have little dreamed
that the plain, quiet man who sat with his
back against a tree, apparently heedless
apd unmoved, was the one upon whom the
fortunes pf-the day, if not of the age and
were hanging. It was only when
some atff'or orderly rode op t in hot haste
with a CommnnTcatloti frrirti some portion
of the battle-field that his eyes-upturned
to' seek in those of the messenger the pur*
’pdrt of the message.
'Phe consultation wjtb General
or the,direct suggestion or command, all
took place with that same imperturbability
1 fof countenance for w,iich he lias always
been remarkable. No "ihoverr\ent of the
enemy -Beemwd to priTile dr diefcdtrcert him.
Fertile -in resourced, t he 1 petition tor rein-'
fpreement was speedily answered. And
while ajj this, transpired ; he stood, calmly
1 ; in' the group, at times, smoking his favorite
- eigar—a more vigorous or a >nor.e frequent
puffing only indicating the inward working
qf the Wind. If something transpired
which he deemed needed his personal at
tention-, away be darted on horseback to
the immediate scene, th one or two-of him>
- aids and an orderly exerting their .utmost.
; To keep up with him. Arrived on the spot,
he caltnly considered the matter requiring
, ,ihis atteh'tiori, wjth ready judgment commri
. micated the necessary orders, and then gal
loped away to another part of the field, or
to his seat beneath the pise tree, there to
enter on the order book some record of the
I brittlffs progress. . u ; - •
It was amusing at times to see hitn-Tr

With his kniffe on the bark of a tree, paus

recall an incident of a similar character ,in

The Chinch Bug—How to Ex ter mi-,

hate the Best of the Wheat, ,
Dr. H. Sherman has made a discovery v
regarding the breeding of the, chinch bug,.,
which, we beleiye, yrill make it an easy
matter .to totally eradicate this corse of
,wheat:growers.: He writes-ae follows i f
The' chinch bug having destroyed my '
wheat crop for a number of years, I was " '
anxious to get rid of him, and I belive I
have tracked him home, and can destroy o’
him, root and branch.
I belive that next if the
will follow'tny- advice, 'they may raise a .
Igood-ctop of wbesty'and riWlose a busbet'“" ’
from the. ravages; of the bug.-' This' is J the -'*''
important secret..,; My -investigation led l-'--
me tp,helsivq that the wheat orkernel >ii •'
was used as a sort of ‘’foster mother”. b;f< or
tlib bug ;.and I flod by inspection through,
-a microscope that lit all wheat grown upon ...
land whert thete art'bugs, is deposited id" 1
the blow, or-fuzzy end of the kernel, a largo - ' "
quantity’of eggs, which produce the bugs :j>
next season. -hak* '.V.
Mr.. Sherman says ; he. willgqnvipeje. any -\
farmer of the truth of this, if they will bripg ~ ,
him a sauiple !oF wheat grown where there ~I U
were plertiy of hugs. 1 Tt'fblidws, that lf tlie
kernel of seed wheat is the gefleral deposi
tory of the eggs-ot the- ehinch-bug, that "
onr fanners.have feeen sowing the pest each - v ;
year as regularly a B -.they. J).avu_ their, wheats ...
and itfaiiows, that, if such ~the
of. thq bug will be easily ac- ;
compliWhcd—either by sowing no wheat
that has been id h'onTact' wtth the bug; or
;by steeping the-seed in some solution''be*
