Lee, at the First Annual Reunion of the Eighty-Second Ohio Veteran ! faatry, held at laentoM, Itfirdirl Co Ohio, on the Sixth AaniTersary of the Battle of Gcttyshhr, July 1st. 1869. Comrade of the Eighty-Second: A leading American writer has truth- luiiyaaiu; luereia a irnttjruivjr ui arms. The commnnity or danarers, hardships, enjovments ! tne participa tion in battles and -victories ; the com panionship in adventures at a time of me wnen men's reelings are most sns- ceptiDie ana ardent, all these bind the memoers or a remment stronelv to gether;" in tne Donas or this fellowship are we met io-uay, ana next to tne satis faction of havinz participated in the war for the Union, may we prize the pleasure of renewing in this way the associations it created. The svmDa- imes ana purposes wnicn united us shoulder to shoulder In the presence of tne ioe, now join us neart to heart Time strengthens rather than impairs their cohesive power, as the magnetism of the past grows more powerful with the flight of years. No matter where we meet or when, mere is an indisso luble bond of sympathy between ua; and those who stood side by side in the in rv of nattln. who were Dartners in the march, the bivouac and the picket, who in sickness or wounds received each other's ministrations or shared together the uneasy couches of the hospital, who in hunger divided the last biscuit, or in cold an only blanket these are and ever will be brethren. It is no slight thinsr to belonir to this knightly order of Union soldiers. Of all fraternities that ever existed, there has been none more honorable than this. It had its inception in the noblest of purposes, its history in the eostliest of sacrifices, its mission in world re nowned achievements. Are other as sociations benevolent f Ours can boast f that sublime charitv which has bro ken the fetters of the bondsman, re deemed a race, and saved a nation. Are others venerable for their antiq uity T Ours is illustrious for deeds done in the living present, which hava uprooted the noxious wrong of the past, and will repeat themselves in beneficent results through all the fu ture T Are others perpetual T Ours will be a livinar Ttow-er as Ion 2 as Truth has battles to be fought, and men's hearts are open to the Inspiration of no Die aeeus. nave others long calen dars of great names? Where is the one that can surpass our hero-list? Out of our brotherhood, "Four hundred thousand men, The brave the good the true In tangled wood, in mountain-glen, . On battle-field, in prison-pen," have outlined by - tbeir graves the march of Freedom. These, though de parted, are our kindred spirits, but not these alone. Those who fought and fell on every field, In the strnprgie .gainst onDression. belonir to us. The dauntless souls who followed Wash ington, the fiery old patriots of Lex ington and Monmouth, the heroes of HannockDurn and Marathon, are of our fellowship. Our fraternity began with Freedom's first battle, and it embraces those of all times and climes who have fought or perished for her cause. nearly tour years have now elapsed since the worh was finished which first called us together. It was a proud day when, in the consciousness of duty taitniuily discharged, and in anticipa tion of swift return to home and friends, we brought back the old flag triumphant, and hung it on The waiting armory wall. Where it might speak of the great past to ail. ' - Yet it was not without recret that we saw our romantic soldier life come to a close, and the old reeiment, which had been to many of us friends, horns and family, broken up and dissolved. Civil pursuits had grown strange and tame, and familiarity with adventure had alienated our minds from the occupa tions of peace. Others had succeeded to our places in business, and society had learned to get along without us. The sodden change in life brought with it new struggles and strong tempta tions, yet I believe I may say of my comrades, as of the Union soldiers fenerally, that in nothing have they istinguished themselves more than in the aptitude, industry and alacrity with which, after laving aside the im plements of war, they resumed the oc cupations of civil life. or Oliver cromweii s soldiers, nttv thousand of whom were thus suddenly disbanded, and cast upon society, it is stated by Macaulay that, "in a tew montns tnere remained not a trace indicating that the most for midable army in the world had just been absorbed into the mass of the com munity. The rovalists themselves confessed that in every department of honest industry the discarded warriors prospered beyond other men, that none was charged with any theft or robbery, that none was heard to ask an alms, and that if a baker, a mason or a wag oner attracted notice by his diligence ana sobriety, he was in all probability flllP of (llivur'u n 1 ,1 aolrlipra f one of Oliver's old soldiers. These words, spoken of Cromwell's Ironsides, are equally true of "Hook er's Ironclads." Thev are true of all our soldiers, and there is nothing in their history, not even excepting their great victories, which does them such immortal honor as the fact that an army s million strong melted away into the mass of the people so rapidly that in a few weeks the men who battered down the gates of Richmond and went "smash ing things" with Sherman to the sea, were not distinguishable from the gen eral mass except by superior industry, uitciitgencs auu goou citisensnip. ine world naa never witnessed such a spectacle, and I may say with anoth er, that " None but a Republican peo ple could have produced it ; for only they would have been permitted. A monarchical nation, once armed and accoutred after the same fashion, could never again have laid aside their arms or cast off their accoutrements ; never more could they have returned to the practices of peace." iiom tne time ot caesar to jNapoieon there was nothing like it in history. The experience of other nations had well nigh justified the declaration of ! estus, mat " Man is a military animal. Glories in gunpowder, loves parade, Prefers them to all things," and that war is a normal state. It re mained for the soldiers of our Repub lic to show that a free people resort to arms not from choice but from neces sity, not as an occupation but a duty, and that being victorious over their enemies they can be equally triumph ant over the dangers and temptations of victory. W e or the iMghty-aecond have the further pleasant reflection, that the day of our final discharge saw our cause triumphant on every field. From Maine to Texas, and from Delaware to Golden Gate the Old Flag waved vic torious. The "Confederacy" had not even a "last ditch" to die in, nor was there a Confederacy to die even if there had been a ditch. The Confederate chieftain had be it said with due re spect to the ladies sought escape in female disguise, aud there was no longer a true-born Southron to be found who could whip ten Yankees. Our work was completed, and time has attested its thoroughness. The alarm ot war has not again been heard, and peace, conquered by the soldiers of the Republic, dwells upon the land like a heavenly benediction. How different the scenes that nere surround us from those which now rush back upon our memories. A million watchfires have been quenched, a million tents have been folded, a million gleaming bayo nets laid aside to rust. ' The charging lines no more we see, No more we near the din of strife : Nor under every greenwood tree, Stretched In their life's great agony. Are those who wait the surgeon's knife ; The Jolting ambulances groan o more, wniie au tne senses slip, We hear from the soon silent Up The pr.tyer for death as balm aloue I "The days of calm at length are won. And sitting thus, with iolded hands, We talk of great deeds greatly done, While all the future seems to run A silvery tide o'er golden sands." The beauty of this rteacn la oura But for what we have helped to sutler and do it would not be here. It came witn us irom the eorv field, nerrhe l upon yon battle-torn banner, and, like DELAWARE, OHIO, FRIDAY, ourselves, it catne to stay. To recount and ment ally live over again the ar rl 11011a hut a-lorious service by whinh it was won, is one of the objects of our assembling, into our uvea mat ser vice has written more of the sublime than usually falls to tne lot of mortals. .fciacfl one nas nis own grand vision o the past. eraveB trpon his soul, and In. communicable save to those who have had a like experience, in reunion like this it all comes back upon the mind and passes before it in swift re view like the airy pnantasma of some glorious dream. We are met upon an anniversary to us suggestive above all others, of in spiring memories. Whose blood does not quicken, whose heart does not swell with the thou tit that on this day, and at this very hour, six years ago he stood in the thickest of the fight at the Waterloo of the rebellion ? Drop out of sicht all other battles, all other campaigns, ana woo aoes not ieei mat it is giory enouga to nave it to say 1 was at CreitysDuriri As you will remember, our encamp ment ine mgnt Deiore tne Dattie was at the beautiful srrove adjoining the convent near tmuutiSDurg. we naa come thither from our cantonments at Stafford via Manassas, Edward's Fer ry and Middletown, having made a aeries of forced marches in the boiling neat 01 a v irgima .nine, cp to this time we knew nothin.it of the where abouts Of the enern v- jfeept from gen- ami rniiiiir that teft-iart's cavalry wai ravaging the Cumberland valley, and that Lee's army, having crossed the Potomac, was moving northward Even the change in the chief com mand, by which the gallant Joe Hook er was removed and General Meade substituted, was yet a matter of mere nying report, ine new commander was an utter stranger, the old one. whom we afterwards followad with so much rride m other fields, was trierl. trusted and beloved. - But the soldiers of the Army of the rotomae cared out little wno led them. Still smarting with the bitter disap pointments and unjust reproaches of cnaneeiiorsvilie, they went into the fight with the determination to win or die m tne attempt. The Eleventh Army Corps, to which we belonged, and the First Corps the two forming the vanguard of the army drew out of their encampments at JcmmiusDurg at seven o clock this mornintr six years aero. Xot a nicket shot had been heard nor a grey-coat seen since we left Virginia, and on this day certainly none ot us were in ex pectation of a battle. There was some thing rather suspicious, it is true, in the rapid and incessant movement of the column, by which we were hurried along over that twelve miles' march, scarcely relieved by a single halt. Knapsacks had grown light, as they generally did on a long tramD, but there were many feet now swollen and shoeless from marching over hot, flinty highways in the journey from Stafford.. But the time had now gone by when the army could not move without shoes, or rather, the new era had about come when it never moved with them, and there were no complaining voices in the column. ' At 10 o'clock we cross ed the Pennsylvania line, and you will remember how with dipping flags and muffled drums we saluted the grand old State on whose soil, before the sun went down, many a comrade found a soldier's grave. 1 At eleven o'clock the distant boom of artillery gave us our first intimation of the propinquity of an enemy. Again and again the deep thunder echoes its solemn summons over hill and valley, and we know by the silence which comes over the column that the prac ticed ears of the soldiers have caught its meaning. . But they are not yet aware that this low growling of dis tant guns is the prelude to the sub- limest tragedy of the age. 1 11 e re is no cessation 111 tue umrcu, the troops rather quickeningtheirpace under the slight stimulus of excitement which courses along the nerves giving elasticity to tired limbs. By the road side and at every doorstep are gather ed pale and trembling women, who minister food and drink to the passing soldiers and with blanched cheeks and whitened Iipa utUir many an invoca tion for their success.. Clouds have all the morning hung low In the thick sul try atmosphere, and at length burst in to a violent rain which drenches each sweating soldier to the skin, and does no good to his cartridges or musket. The rain over the .clouds drift away and 1 he sun glares blazing hot upon the hurrying troops. We have ascended a plateau' and : at our feet is the village of Gettysburg, beyond which Is an undulating pla in skirted in the distance by a low range of hills where the rebel Batteries have found a lodgement and have commenc ed upon our approaching column. The First Corps, which led the march, has already moved to the front, and, hav ing lost its leader, the gallant Reynolds, is being hotly beset by the enemy un der Hill and Ewell, so that .. we have not come a moment too soon for its re lief. Pressing forward into the village, almost on the double-quick, we find ourselves surrounded by a tumult of excitement, masses of infantry hurry ing through the streets, artillery gal loping to the front, cavalry rushing hither and thither, arms gleaming, sabres clashing, cannon thundering and groups of terror-stricken citizens gazing with mingled fright and amaze ment at the hurry skurry of . battle. We have not time to observe these things the enemy are approaching the town and the regiments push forward to their positions in the fields beyond. Dilger's Ohio Battery has opened from a wheat field by the roadside in reply to those saucy guns of Hill's, and the Eighty-second goes to 11s support, xne rebel shells come ricochetting over the field, and before we are in position one has struck Corporal Mahon on the left of Company E, and our regiment has given its first brave life for the victory of Gettysburg. We take our places and another man is struck, while around us rebel shells scream for fur ther vengeance, or bursting, plunge their hissing fragments down deep in to the muddy soil of the wheat field The command is given to " call the rolls," and amid the thunder and din of the opening battle each man of the Eiahty-eecond gives his calm unfalter ing answer, " here !" (Alas, how many who thus answered then, but replied not to the call of their names just now, are there to-day.) Yes, here they all are with brave young life to be given freely for the dear flag, and the offer ing will be claimed full soon. From the hights in front the enemy's guns keep belching their horrid fire and his heavy mapses of infantry, the flower of Lee's army, are pouring in from the northern highways and ap parently taking their positions. But soon the grey swarm is detected creep ing around to our right, and the sus picion flashes upon the mind that it is the enemy's intention to turn that nans ana lorce us Dsck toward 11 not beyond the town. This is confirmed in a moment, for we have the order to change front from north to east, and tnen advance toward wnat was just now our rieht. The Eighty-second is instantly in motion, and its companies being doubled on tne centre form a soiia square of moving men. The enemy has observed the movement and from right, left and front his ready batteries pour in their terrific fire. Fenoes ob structing the progress of the column are jerked down in a twinkling, ana the fiat-open fields offer not the slight est shelter from the flying shells. Here is one division, a mere handful, going out to meet half way an advancing rebel corps, and fight it a pitched bat tle on an open plain. Is this not a mis take? Why thus take the offensive against an overwhelming force ? Why not have covered the Iront with an ex temporized breast-work and there awaited the enemy's approach t The moment is critical and there is scarce ly a chance of success, yet " Was there a man dismayed? Not though the soldier knew Some one had blundered ; Their's not to make reply, Thelr's not to reason why, Their's but to do or die." The wheat field is left behind and the column enters a clover field where the storm of Iron howls around It with re doubled fury, a plunging shell almost momently crashing through its com pacted ranks. From the opposite di rection comes the enemy, his serried lines of grey stretching far to the right, and his crimson banners waving de fiance. Nearer and nearer the two columns approach, the batteries sus- pending their fire in expectation of t,- mn.r,Hinff ahraik. Thn il ma nnrl I the grey have arrived within pistol I shot of each other, when along each 1 m i JULY 9, 1869. rank flashes a sheet of flame, and the very heavens roaf with the crash of musketry. It is a fierce, terrible strug gle. In a few minutes scarcely the time occupied in telling the field is strewn with the dead and the wounded, surrounded by the debris of battle. The Union line melts away before the enemy '8 heavy volleys, until it appears wore iis-e a tine ot skirmisners than a main front of attack. The horse of every field officer in the Eightv-second has been killed, the gallant leader of tne regiment, col. Robinson, has been stricken down frightfully wounded, Adjutant Burnham has fallen twice pierced by a bullet, and out of twenty two commissioned officers who went into the fight there are left but three not killed or disabled. The troops on the right have already commenced fall ing back and are being followed by the enemy toward the towni No time must be lost or retreat will be imnos- aioie. 00 ijieutenant coionei xnomp son, iron-nerved and always perfectly calm in the hottest fight, signals to the little remnant of bis command to bring away tne colors, and conducts it in good order from the field. irom that time on your speaker could tell more authentically what happened within the rebel lines than on the Union side.

It was four o'clock when the shatter ed column, which a few hours before had marched so proudly through those streets, joined the reserves on ceme tery Hill. Of two hundred and thirty- six enlisted men who followed our colors into the light, there were now but eighty-nine left to answer to their names. Nineteen officers and one hun dred and forty-seven, men had been disabled . and captured, most of the number being killed and wounded. much was our nrst day's righting at Gettysburg. But two small Corps had naa been engagea. these- excepting division of Cavalry, being the only Union force which had yet arrived. In the morning they had marched out Doiaiy ana attacked rar superior num bers in the open fields, and late in the afternoon had been driven back. To a casual observer it may seem that th day was lost, but on the contrary it was gloriously won. The boldness ol our assault had deceived the enemy who supposed it to be sustained by the main body of the army, which was in reality yet many miles distant. Not venturing a direct attack in return, the enemy spent most of the day in preparing tb force back our determined lttle army by a nank movement, suc ceeding in this he had yet plenty oi daylight in which to have pressed his advantage, but judging by the recep tion he naa met, ana which was stiu offered, that our main force had ar rived, he desisted irom assault, ana lost the great opportunity of the bat tie. The Union forces, though re pulsed, were really triumphant, for they had gained sufficient time for the concentration of the army, and had won that splendid position, stretching from Culn's Hill to Round Top, which contributed so much to the final vic tory. A positive repulse of Ewell's advance would hardly have done more, and might have resulted unfavorably 1 1 1 1 . . 1 : e .. .1 : iv . Ijy leauiug to 1 110 cnoiue 01 a uiiiereiii position for the main army from that which was so fortunately taken. I believe X risk nothing in saying il will be the verdict of history that at Gettysburg was fought the turning battle of the war. The best disciplined and most ably commanded army oi the Rebellion had then attained its most complete equipment, its finest esprit and the summit of its prowess. Its success would have been our inevita ble ruin, for nothing would have re sisted its triumphant march. Wash ington, .Baltimore, fhiiaaeipnia, ar risburg, New York, all would have fallen in rapid succession, and the riot- I ers of these cities wno, under the training of rebel emissaries, were pre pared to co-operate in the invasion, would have welcomed the invaders. Across the path of this great peril there lay no obstacle save the much abused and often defeated Army oi the Potomac. Against its firm-set lines the rebel chieftain flung his solid cohorts, and they were hurled back again, broken, decimated, routed. There were moments in the tremendous struggle when, had a single regiment of our line yielded, all would have been lost. The enemy was fairly beaten by superior generalship and valor. That is the history of this battle, and whether it be call decisive or not, oi this we may rest assured, it saved the country. i I have now traced with some minute ness the events of the anniversary up on which we are assembled. They con stitute a single chapter in an experi ence extending over nearly four years of arduouseervice. The mind naturally goes back to-day to the time when, nearly eight years ago, we first assem bled at this place and made the field out yonder classic with the name oi Camp Simon Kenton. Back upon my mental vision come vividly now those clusters of Sibley tents at whose thres holds many of us met for the first time. There is a pleasure in recalling those November days when in that camp we first put on the blue and first trained unwonted shoulders to the musket. That was the childhood of soldiering and it comes back to us fair and beau tiful as the recollections of youth. It has made the surroundings of this place familiar, and looking about these streets and out yonder where the old camp used to be, many of us can say. "Still o'er these scenes my memory wakes, itill o'er them broods with miser care: Time but the impression stronger makes, As streams their channels deeper wear." Nor have we forgotten this patriotic people from whom during our sojouri. nere, we received so much kindness nd who.we have reason to believe, stili cherish a deep interest in the soldien of the Eighty-second. None ofus were counted unworthy of their solicitude; none was too poor to have a friend in Kenton. It was a bleak day in January, less than a month after our regiment had been mustered into the service, that it left here for the field. It is amusing now to remember the particularity 01 our equipment; how "Uncle Sam" lav ished unnecessary attentions by pro viding each soldier with the luxury of a tin plate accompannied with a knife and fork; how well-meaning friends had stuffed our knapsacks with bed quilts for emergencies of climate, and how, on setting forth, it required two long well-laden trains of cars to carry our baggage, saying nothing of the troops. The time came when the vet eran would have regarded a knife and fork or even a plate as a gastronomic nuisance, and when the regiment was considered fortunate in having two mule teams, saying nothing of two railway trains, to haul its tuiinp equip ments We reached Grafton, Virginia In mid-winter and there, beside the mountain-girt river of Tygart's Val ley pitched our first camp in the Old Dominion. Manyof our experiences in that camp are probably forgotten but its mud made impressions upon us not to be effaced. Whether we had any af fection for the "sacred soil" or not, it most assuredly showed a great affec tion for us. We remained here long enough to learn something about the manual of arms and the company drill, there be ing scarcely level ground enough In that vicinity for the evolutions of a regiment. The camp was converted in to a sort of municipality and our com mandant's daily ordinances for grading graveling and guttering streets were carried out with such zeal as to have positively subdued in a short time the most obdurate of mudholes, and im parted to it an appearance of civiliza tion. This was our first victory, and is about all that occurred, wort hy of note, during our sojourn at Grafton. This camp had just been prepared for comfortabe living when an order came assigning the regiment to Gener- al Schenck s command and directing that it proceed bv rail to New Creek. Arriving there we marched across the mountains to Moore tiold which was . IT taken without opposition. Thi -was our first campaign. f ' From this period the military service of the .fcJ gnty-seoond Degao tn earnest. After a few weeks spent in picketing aud scooting, in the course of which Colonel Cant well led us in a chase after Harness' guerillas over in the wild re gion of Lost River, the command of General Schenck oegan its advance up the Vallev of the- Mouth Potomac. Ou the 5th of May we ariived at Frauk lin, and on the 7th pressed torward to reinforce General Milroy at McDowell where with a few regiments the latter was being beset by the army of Stosre wall Jackson. - Milroy was reached on the 9th, and it was immediately deter mined to make a bold attack upon Jack- son in his chosen . lodgement OR Ute Shenandoah Mountain. It was a bold adventure, those two- brigades assault ing ten-thousand rebels in such a posi tion as that. But in the yunng enthusi asm kindled by the first sight of the enemy and the first smell of gunpow der it seemed a matter 01 ;orse mat that towering stronghold must be ' car ried, no matter what force defended it. At the word ot command too Eighty Second and Twenty-fifth Ohio, lead ing in the assault, charged up the . pre cipitous side of the mountains, as re gardless of the enemy's volleys as ir they had been pelting snow balls thrown from a sclionil boy's fort. What entousiasin was kindled by th first bang of our Entields resoundin along that wild mountain gorge In tb daring assault ! Even yt their remem be red echoes make the lienrt leap an he blood tingle. - At the head of the Eighty-Second , is the brave cantweii leading the clam be ring soldiers up the steep slope, j The rebel ou' posts are driven back in a mo ment and the charging regiments seize a position close to the enemy's. Shelter ed line, and there tor three hours, pou an incessant musketry fire into his in trenched camps. A rebel brigadier is slain and over three hundred of his command killed and wounded. Long after darkness has Bottled upon that mountain wilderness the fight contin ues and the deep gorge is vocal with the roar of musketry. But to attempt to maintain the uueoual combat would only be to give the. enemy time to cir cumvent our Utile force and intercept its communications. The assaulting regiments are therefore finally with' drawn and unmolested march down he heights they had won, bearing away their score or to of wounded. This vaa our first battle. I need not Stop to describe the night mareh back to Franklin, and how, stretching our line from cliff 10 cliff we then held the oursning enemy at bay until General Fremont s arrival with re-en lorcemeut-s relieved ns of his presence. A fortniarht's solourn in that wretched country, aenarated from supplies by sev venty miles or nearly impassauie roau, had brought upon us incipient starva tion when the rather startling news ar rived that our contemplated advance to Staunton must be abandoned, our oet vices being required immediately in the Snanaudoah Valley where Jackson, having turned back from us had swoop ed down on Geneiat Banks, driving hi tn from Winchester, and was now hreatening. as was supposed, an ad vance on Wahington. . Tne next morningsaw us oil Drigut and early. On the second day we are t Petersburg where each soldier plenishes biscart ridge-box and drops al) -ouioments save gnu aud blanket, pre paratory to a swift march over the nountains. ins --necessary" articles of camp furniture which loaded two railway trains at Kenton have ' grown niiall by degrees and beautituliy less.'

Still more fortunate is he if bis haversack is filled with goodly store of substantial "hardtack and sow-Delly. for the mountains will be barren fora ging ground, yielding nothing even to our searching friends the"Blenkers." On the 29th of May the column cross ed the Potomac at Moorefield and plunged into the mountain domes. On the first of June, after a toilsome march over villainous roads, it emerg ed at Strasburg, there encountering the flank of Jackson's army already in full retreat. The enemy, after slight resistance, withdrew under cover of the night, which soon ensued, and Fremont followed in swift pursuit. All supplies were now exhausted, the trains left far in the rear, and the army compelled to subsist from the country as well as it could in its flying march. Our soldiers afterwards had some ex perience as "bummers" in the army of General Sherman, but their first prac tice in tnat line was naa in this catn- Eaign. The '"bummer's" equivalent ere was the " blanker," who brought to our necessitous commissariat the same useful genius which shed such luster on the famed foragers of the West. , Jackson was energetically chased to Harrisonburg and then to Cross Keys, where r remont gave film oattie. xne story or tne enemy's es cape across the Shenandoah, and the tedious march back to Strasburg and Middletown need not be repeated. Neither must I dwell upon the cam paigns which followed, for if I under took to ten ' How we fought and how we tramped, Too long a tale perhaps I'd spin ye. But, first and last, I think we camped In every field in old Virginia. 1 " Twas aeavold life. but. Lord.'twashard. No rest lor the good, no peace for the wick- ea, When you did'nt fight- you were put on guard, Ana when you came off you went on plck . et." - July found us at Sperryville, east of the Uiue iijcige, and part or JUiiroys Independent Brigade of Sigel's Corps. Early in August General Pope com menced the forward movement which, after the battle of Cedar Mountain and our pursuit of Jackson to Robertson's river, was very soon turned into a back ward movement by Lee s army let loose from Richmond. Then followed twelve days of continuous fighting ilong the Rappahannock, the hostile columns moving northward on oppo site sides of that stream and grappling with each other as opportunity pre sented. Finally, on the 29th the con tending armies arrive at Manassas, md then on the field of Groveton, joiu in a general pitched battle. Here the Eighty-second, already reduced ta a handful by the terrible campaigning, is plunged into the fight by Milroy in one of nia impetuous dashes, and in a moment finds itself ambuscaded, flank ed and in imminent peril of capture. While directing, under the terrific fire, a change of front to meet the flank as sailants our heroic Colonel Cantweii tails dead from his horse with the words of command and encouragement on his lips. So fell the gallant leader around whom we first rallied for the field and than whom we have none braver or more lamented, dead upon the field of honor. His soldiers car ried him from the field, together with gallant Lieutenant Litsenberg, who was also one of the slain of this bloody morning. Later in the day the Eighty-second has the satisfaction of repaying the enemy with interest for its heavy losses, and of sharing in one of the signal successes of that sanguinary field. Under cover of the night the army is withdrawn to Centerville, its retreat being compelled by the treach ery or inefficiency of Porter and Frank lin, not by defeat, the troops having held the field until alter nightfall. Sigel's command is now constituted the Eleventh Corps and sent to Arling ton. Meanwhile Lee's army moves into Maryland, followed by the Army of the Potomac. The battle cf Antiet am is fought and upon the return of the rebel army to Virginia Sigel ad vances to Fairfax then to Gainesville and finally moves to Fredericksburg where Burnside has just suffered a bloody repulse. This closed one of the most arduous and disastrous campaigns of the war. Sickness brought on by the severe ex posures and privations, had Joined with the havoc of battle In thinning our ranks. During that gloomy win ter the Eighty-second wms encamped at Stafford Court House, a hamlet in that barren, wretched country. Here it remained u ntil the opening of the Chan cellorsville campaign In April, when the Eleventh Corns, now commanded by MajorGeneralHoward.Joined In the grand advance, t'rossingthe Rappahan nock at Kelly's ford and the Kapidan at Germanna it arrived neftrChuticellors ville on the 1st of Mny.

Equal ly memoraoie was tne splendid vic tory of the ensuing day when Hood three successive times flung his Corps against tne iwiu tars on xne extreme left, and as often saw it repulsed apd totally oeaLoii. ( Then followed, on that very night, j on us ton s retreat irom itesaca, then our pursuit to Cassville, and then that daring march across the Al In toons mountains to Burnt Hickory, followed by the glorious fight at New Hope Church. Then we go, hand over hand, to the Twin Mountain near which, , pn the 22d of June, we have the aflair .ol Kulp'sfarm, followed a fortnight after ward by the captured of Chattahoochee Hights from which our soldiers who clamber to the tree-tops can see Atlnn ta plainly In the distance. i Oo the 20th of July we are across the Chattahoochee and closing in upon the Gate City. Hood having superseded Johnston in the rebel command, makra a daring sortie, and his concentrated masses come plunging down ft pou tbe Twentieth Corps. Our unexpectmit troops have scarcely time to spring to their places before the enemy is upon them with frantic determina tion to break tbeir line and force them into Peach Tree Creek and beyond tbe Chattahoochee. The struggle 'is long, bloody and doubtful, and the car nage terrific From tbe beginning tbe entire Third Brigade ia in the very 1 hick est of the fight. The brave Mo- Groarty and his colleage Bown are stricken down, the one with a severe. tbe other witb a mortal wound, and tbe veteran Sixty-first is almost destroyed by the terrible fire. For a time the Eighty-second is engaged In a hand to baud struggle with the desperate foe and tbe ground is plied with tbe bodies of the slain. Our soldiers , almost tak en by surprise, have no parapet to pro. , tect, no support to reenforce them. They eland, tbe only barrier to lire- J trievable disaster, and tbeir heroism is sublime. Our line hangs to its place. strong as adamant, ana as tbe sun goes down upon that scene of blood tbe enemy retires slowly and reluctantly fromtnoneia. General Hood now abandons his out er line, and tbe long and tedious in vest ment or tne city is begun.

'(Correspondence Delaware Gatue. Topeka, Kahsas, June 5, 1 3. Editor Gaz'AU .Thinking that it might be of some Interest to the read ers of the Gazette to hoar from the Stale of which there Is so much talk and from an original Buckeye, I have been induced to write these few lines. The climate in Kansas ia exceedingly lovely. With a clear dry atmonphere, and gentle heslth-cl ving breezes it can not be otherwise. Tbe peculiar cieer ness of tbe atmosphere cannot he titi airinedbvone that has not been here aud seen for himself. The winters ere usually very inild and open, with 1 ttle snow. Spring opens much earlier than it does In Ohio or the Eastern Slates. No State in the Union has a btatfrsys iem of railrosds than Kansas. Tiiose already completed, with the lins now in course of construction, wiil reach oearly three-fourths of the counties In 1 he State. Tho Htate Is being filled up very rapidly with people from ttie East snci also i.um the Old Country. In Il linois, Iowa and Missouri they tell trav elers that Kan urn is a barren desert, without soil or rain, and thst crops won't grow, at d if they sooul l happen to grow the grasshoppers eat ttieru up. During the last six years, according to the U. S. ofiici il reports, the yield per acre In Kanstis has been grealertuna in Missouri, during tbe same period, as follows: Wheal, two and otie-'bird bushels ; Barley, four and one-third ; Corn nd Rve ecb, fiv and one-half ; Osts, six ; Poliitoes, seven, and Buck wheat, eight ; Hay, five hundred aud eighty-six more pounds to the acre. the crops ate remarkst.iv cooa u ; spring. The corn is from two to fusir feet high, and aas been plowed two and three times. A grest many thins that Kansas is a very dry fclate. Jt is dry compared wilh what you have bd in Ohio this sprii g, as I happen to know. having hd the pinssure f w-;i'g through Ohio mud In'.a sprlnir oonsi i.-r- able, when the farmers should haveceen plowing their corn. We don't pray for any 01 that kind ot weather iteru, while we are t.'ene 1 who t :.:. v. Wheat is now being harvest..-,, and troni reports ccming in from all parts of the State there will be an uncom mon yield. I have not heurd of any serious damages done by t lie grassbop- leis this season. 1 11 fact they are pot half as thick s I have often seen litem in Ohio. The crops look well generally. Almost all kin is of fruit grow n iti tem perate climHie succeed admirably tn Kansas. - This is tbe proper season t tbe year to go West to se tlie country. A great rnauy make a great m :m a o v going West late in the fall or too early iu the sprlrg, when every mi 11 sr bare aud desolate, and 'hey forget tt'st tt looks tbe sur.ie way at home. This is the pioper season to eotne i" see tbe West, ud there is no person localise Ihev do see one of the grandest countries in the w.uld.
