The Inglorious Campaign of Burn side, and Irritating Confed erate Placards. A New War Story Told by Amos J. Cam mings-Fresh Mutton and Head Cheese. I.. S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, WAsnrsozTO, D. C., June 24. VERY old soldier of the Army of the Po tomeo remembers Burneide's mu d march. It becan on January 22, 180G. This was forty days after his defentat Freder icksburg. In an effort to retrieve it he fol lowed the example of Charles XII, and opened a winter campaign. He tried to strike the Rappe.bannock somo miles above Fredericksburg, cross the river on pon toons and reach Lee's rear. It began to rain on the evening of the twenty-second, and it rained incessantly for three days. The pontoons never rrached the liver. They were stuck in seas of mud. Nearly every man in the army was wet to the waist for days in efforts to drag them to dry ground. The confederates on the other side of theRlappahannook quickly divined the situation. They stuck up im mense placards on the bank of the river hearing each inscriptions as. "Burnside's Army Stack in the Mud," "Burnside is Not leoClelan," end other pat sayings. When the sun began to shine and the pontoons were dragged from the sloughs the army went back to its old camp. Everybody was disheartened. The peninsula veterans, who were staunch McClellan mon, shook their heads mournfully, saing, yin, "I told you how it would bhe." The disountent rose to such a pitch that there was a spirit of mutiny in some of the regiments. Hundreds of de sertions occurred every day, and the army had no confidence in its commander until Joe Hooker suaoceeded Iurnside. I was a sergeant In comauiy C of the Twenty-sixth New Jersey volunteers at this: time. The New Jersey regiment was part of the SBcond brigade. This brigade had won a brilliant reputation on the Peninsula and at Antietam. In was known in the army of the Potomac as the Vermont brig ade. It was eomposed, with the exception of the Jersey regiment, of Vermont trooos They were tall, ungailly Yankees. They drawled their words and gave them a pe culiar nasal twang. Their feet were so big that the Johnnies compared them to old fashioned ariddles. A Mississippian once told me they were so big that whenever he killed a Vermont Yankee he had to go up and shove him over before he would tum ble. I saw some captured North Carolin IL TANTALIZING PLACARDS. ians sent in from the front at the first bat tle of Frederieksburg. In stature, gait and accent they r6sembled the Vermonters. I believe that if they had worn the federal uniform the Vermonters themselves would have taken them for biothers., We went into camp after the mud march near White Oak church. About two weeks afterward Bill Young, a big Scotchman in our regiment, confiscated a sheep owned by some farmer in the vicinity. He had found a little copse in an out of the way nook, where he butchered the sheep, hung the carcass to the limb of a tree by its hind legs, and di esed it. He had hardly finished the work when he was frightened by a file of men who were approaching the spot. After hastily concealing the carcass he sneaked back to camp. Two hours later he returned to the copen. The mutton seemed to be all right. It did not appear to have I een disturbed. He avoided collision with the camp guard and managed to get it to his shelter tent after dark. Then he cut it up and distributed it among his friends in the ranks and the commnissioned oflioers. Twenty-four hours afterward a Vermont regiuent, then commanded by Louis A. Grant, now assistant secretary of war (and by the way, ltodtield ProctLr was a captain in the same regiment), passed through our camp on picket detail. As they struck Company C's street, through which they merched down the hill, they all began to bark like dogs. The Jerseymen rushed from their tents and wondered what the barking n!et. rt. 'hi Vermonters kept up the carltoa demonstration for half a mile yelling with delight. Commissioned officers who had partaken of tile mutton were the first to solve the riddle. Some of the cold meat was left. After the Vermont demonstration it did not taste like mutton. It was a little rank, one slid, and tnsted more like coon meat that hadn't been parboiled. Many who had received the gift were sick at the stomach. It turned out that some bright Ver monter had seen Young at work on the sheep. Herang in his comrades, and fright ened the Sootchman back to camp. Then they stole the carcass, and put in its place the dressed body of an old Newfoundland dog that had been following a Wisconsin bri 'nde. When the Vermonters returned from picket duty and began to cross our cnmup the barking was resumed. This time the Jerseymen were ready for them. Fronm seven hundred throats came the cry, "Heed cheese, head-cheese. you damnued Yankees!" This cry gave a pallor to the Vermont faced. Their stomaoli were turned. While they were on picket duty some Germans in the Jersey regiment had gathered all of the cold roast dog in camp, turned it into head cheese and peddled it on the Vermont pi0k et reserve. Iteadeheese was a delicecy rarely seen in the army. It had gone like hot cakes. Everybody bought it. 'oasibly even Secretary Proctor and Gien. Louis A. Grant got their shore of it. At till events there was no more barking, and no more buying of headcheese on the pickekline. Aopos J. CuummsoW -opyrlght, How to Prevent Roughness of the Skin.
