While I wm standing by the pontoon Kri-ige, w&tcbiu? the l>oys cros* tiie bayou, I heard somebody cheering, an<l locking around, saw an officer on horseback, in a major-general s uniform. He dismounted and came over to the very spot where I was standing. I did not know his lace, but something told me it was < J rant —Ulytnet Grant, at the same moment the hero of the west ern army. Solid he stood—erect, about five feet eight, with square teatures, thin closed lips, brown hair, broad beard, both cut short and neat. 'He must weigh one hundred and fifty pounds; looks just like the soldier be is. I think he is larger than Napoleon, but not much—he is not so dumpy; looks like a man in good earnest, and the rebels think he is.' And this was the first time I saw Grant. I think I still possess some of the feeling that over came me at that moment, as I stood HO near to one who hold our lives, ami possibly, our country's, in his hands. I beard him speak: 'Men push right along; close up fast, and hurry over.' Two or three men mounted ou mules, attempted 1 wedge past the soldiers on the bridge. Grant noticed it and quiet ly said, 'Lieutenant, send those men to the rear.' Every soldier in parsing turned to gaze on him, but there was no further recognition. There was uo McClellan, begging the boys to allow him to light hi* cigar by theirs, or en quiring to what regiment that exceed ingly fine-marchii g company belonged. There was no I'oj»e bullying the men for not marching faster, or officers for Home trivial detail remembered only by martinets. There was no Houaparte I maturing for effect, no pointing to the 'yramids, no calling the centuries to witness. There WAS no nousensc, no sentiment; only a plain business man of the republic, there for the one single purpose of getting that command across tho river in the shortest time possible. On a horse near by, and among the still mounted start", sat the general's son, a bright looking lad of about eleven year*. Fastened to his little waist by the broad yellow belt, was his father's sword —that sword on whose clear steel was soon to be engraved Vicks burg, Mpottsylvania, the Wilderness and Richmond. The boy talked and jested with the bronzed soldiers near him, who laughingly inquired where we should camp, to which the young held marshal replied, 'over the river.' Over the river! Ah! that night we slept with our guns in our hands; and another night, aud another, mtw more than one of our division camped beyond and over the river—in that last tenting grouud where tho reveille was heard no more. I next saw (irunt on May 18, 1863, and this time at tlie battle of Champ ion Hills, in tho rear of Vicksbnrg. Wo ha<l crossed the Mijuistippi at tJrtirnl Gulf, and swung off east atnl north; an<l fought the battles of Port Gibson, Raymond and Jackson, and were overtaking Pemberton's army hastening to the Mvall at Yickaburg. It wa9 a very hot day, and we had march ed hard, slept little ami rested none. Among the magnolias on Champion Hills tho enemy, 40,000 or 50,000 atroug, turned on us. Sherman's corps was already engaged far on the right, a* we approached tlie field in that over powering Mississippi sun. Our bri gade was M>on in liue, on the edge of the meadow, or open field sloping towards the wood", where tho enemy were concealed and steadily firing <>n us. We were in the most trying posi tion of soldiers, for regulars even —be- ing tired on without permission to re turn the shots. We wire standing two files deep, bearing as patiently as we could, not a heavy, but steady tire from infantry, while an occasional cannon ball tore up the turf in front or behind us. A g'Hxi many men were filling, and the wounded were being born to the rear of the brigade, close to an old well, whose wooden curb seemed to offer the only protection from bullets on the exposed lice. 'Colonel, move your men a little by the left flank,' said a quiet, though commanding voice On looking round, 1 saw, imuiediatly be hind us, Grant, the commander-in chief, mounted on a beautiful bay mare and followed perhaps by half a dozen of his staff. For tome reason he dis mounted, aud uiost of hit* officers were sent off, bearing orders, probably, to other jj quarter*! of thej field. It was Grant under fire. Thj rattling of iuu>ketry increased on our front and j;r«w louder, too. on the left flank Graut had led his horso to tho left, and thus kept near to the company to which I belonged He now stood leaning complacently against his favorite steed, smoking- -as seemed habitual with him —the stump of a cigar. His was the only horse near the line, and mu?t naturally have attracted some »>1 the enemy's tire. What if he should be killed, I thought to myself, and the aimy be left without its commander ? Itt front of u> was an enemy; behind us and above us and liable to overcome and cru>li us, were his reinforcements. For days we had been away from our base of supplies, and marching inside the enemy's lines. What if Grant should be killed, and we be defeated here—in such a place and at such a timer lam sure every one who recog nized him wished him away; but there he stood— clear, calm and immovable. I was close enough to see his features Karue>t they were; but sign of inward movement there was none. It was the same cool, calculating face I had seen at the bridge ; the »ame careful, half cynical face I afterwards saw busied wi»h the affairs of state. —fW. > If V liver*, in the Timet, 'WIIAR was de Bun d»s morolD ,, ' a>ks Kct.
