remnarked,"Col. Stewart, allow n
to introduce you to Gen. Gordon, a
Snator from - Georgia." The
Colonel and the General loked at
each other for a moment as if in
doubt. Gen. Gordon, appreciated the
a.16USe of the Colonel's horitaion, and
said: "Yes, it is,tho same ,peron.''
Thb-two at once shook haUds an%j
p:diptly exchanged sentiments of
respect and admiration. Senator
Scott wan naturally considerably
autozed at this mysterious perfotr
mance. Col. Stewart, during the
late war, had commanded one of the
regin'ents of Western Pennyslvania,
and 0eu, Gordon had led a column
of bravo Georgians. They were
therefore, at that time in hostile
array. -Gen. Gordon then explainetd
to Senator Scott that during the war
he had taken Col. Stewart prisoner
with a portion of his command. The
Colonel added : "And never do I
expect, under any oircumstanees, tp
meet .a;more negnanimous viatr o
