An Epic.
The following was written by an Irish iarmc
boy from this county, who is now a private in
the 35th Iowa. Whatever may be said of it*
poetic merits, all will agree that It is vividly
descriptive, and we doubt not that those who
participated in the recent two-days battle before
Nashville- will pronounce it truthful.
Nashville, December 18,1S01.
Mit. .T. C. Pakiiam—Dear
Sir:
Once more I
have tne happiness to inform you of the good
ness of God in bringing me safely through a
hurd fought battle, in wlii. v.-e whipped the
Johnny rebs to their heart's content.
When I wrote to you last we were in line of
battle aud busily engaged in throwing up
breastworks. Well, we got everything in readi
ness for a grand resistance. But the Johnnies
would not come—the weather grew severe.
It snowed and froze and blew like fury.
And we sceme not to bo in much hurry.
Tiie reb-i. would come and take a glance,
Bui seemed quite slow for to advance.
Som -times uiey'd fire on our picket,
it to advance they thought, was wicked.
At last the frost aud snow had fled
And naught but mu-t was leit instead.
Uen. Thomas and Sin11n grew quite uneasy:
To tight the rebels they were almost crazy—
And n w tne weather was growing tine.
The army all fell into line!
'Twus on the fifteenth of December—
1'ite ilny and hour I well remember,—
TIia men In spirits all were line.
We lii.irched out a goodly host.
Tae country's pride, the nation's boast.
We pushed along through brake and briar,
Att'l »t evcr.v step sank in the mire.
The TUi£ty-l''irth boys did not lag,
But followed up the starry flag.
Colonel Hiii was in command
Of a select, but, little band.
Who passed through many a hard
battle,
•Where bullets fly and cannon rattle.
And now about to
lace the foe,
"Onward" with them was all the go
Nor s opped nor stayed until we stood
Facing the rebels commanded by Hood.
At first we viewed a frowning f*t,—
This we attached, and thought it sport.
We sent them shell and hissing lead
Till from the fort the rebels fled.
In this we captured four fine guns,
Which made the rebels see two suns,
And then we wheeled off to the left.
Where trees with shot and shell were cleft,
The rebs., concealed beneath a wall of stone,
Tho't they could drive us blue-coats home.
But little they knew what gallant stuff
They had to meet in the rebuff. '.
We mode the charge— the rebels run,-*
And that day's work was nearly done}
Hut Colonel Hill, our commander bray®,
Found in that charge an hero's grave.
That n'ght we lay upon our arm-,
In line, 'mid battle's wild alarms.
Next morning, after taking food,
We started off to And old Hood.
The rebels thought themselves at home—
They were posted behind high walls of stone.
The hills were high on which they stood
And io the rear tiiere was a wood.
At eight o'clock tile fight began.
e stood to our arm-, every man.
The artillery, placcil on every hill,
iiegan the work w»ili right good will.
Through fire and smoke, and si.ot and sKWI,
We blue-coats pushed.-it was like shelL—
And under all that hellish flre
We kept onr lines advancing higher.
At four o'cU»ck we imtde a cnarge
Upon the rebel lines at large,
Aud then the ler.d did thickly fly
And many a mun lay down to die.
O! it was a very dreadful sight
To see tl:n carnage of that fl^bt!
But Hood and alt his troops gave way.
And we were conquerors oa that day.
The rebels all have lied apace,
And we are after to give chase.
We took thirty guns and prisoners many.

To tiik armkies.—Do rot forget that Satur
day next is the day set apart for you to do some
thing for the soldiers' families. Let evejy
farmer in the county be represented by some
thing, no matter what it is. If you cannot give
much, give little. Give something, at all haz
ards, to sustain the suffering wife and little
ones whose husband and father has gone forth
to suirer for you. Remember that while Provi
dence has blessei you with a plentiful harvest
and the rest of the things that tend to make life
comfortable, that you are expected to look after
the poor and suffering in your midst. Let there
be a large turn out and enough collected to sup
port our soldiers' families throngh the winter.
Give plentifully of that which you have, and
remember that you will not be casting your
bread upon the waters in vain.
The committee appointed to receive donations
will lie found at Elchelberger's Hotel through
out the day.
hristmas.—An inquiry appeared from
a cor
respondent in our last issue concerning this
festival. No response having been handed in,
we give the following from an exchange, which
comprehends about all that is known on the
subject:
Leiber says that according to many critics the
anuual anniversary of the birth of Christ was
not celebrated in the first centuries of the
Christian Church, as the Christian usage In
general was to celebrate the death of remarka
ble persons rather than their birth. Tills day
was first observed, according to creditable au
thority, by the Christian Church in the fourth
century, and in the fifth century the Western
Church ordered it to be celebrated forever on
the day of the old Roman feast of the oirth of
Sol, on the 25th of December, though no inform
ation of the day of Christ's birth existed. In
the East, Christmas was observed on the 6th of
January. According to Luke, Christ was born
during the night, aud tiieretore divine service
was performed in the night of December 24-25,
from which circumstances Cliris'hins is called
in German
Wrihnnchien,
1
1. e., Holy or Conse­
crated Night. Some say that Christmas has
always been celebrated in the Church. The
Church of England and tht great body of Euro
pean Protestants observe the day but in the
United sprites it Is but little regarded except bv
tne Episcopalians and Catholics. The custom
of making presents on Christmas-eve is derived
frotimn old heathen usage practiced at the feast
i the birth of.Sol but it has become conse
crated by ages, and contributes a great deal to
make this festival au interesting event to fam
ilies.
istrict Coral.—The next term of the Dis
trict Court commences on Mocday. The session
is likely to be a long and Interesting one, there
being a great many important cases to come
up. Haro't Hall is to be used as the Court room.

TUB uneral.—The funeral ceremonies of
Col. Hill took place yesterday afternoon. In
the morning the body was conveyed to the
Cougregational Church, where it lay in state
until afternoon. At l..ilf-past one o'clock the
c.lurch was crowded with people to attend the
te vievs. The sermon was preached by Rev. A.

eyes in the house.
The military were formed from tha church,
extending across the street, and while the body
was passing to the hearse, presented arms,
After which the procession was formed, in the
following order:
Plattoon of Soldiers,

The publication (in Sunday's
names of all the people living In Duouque, who
pay an income tax, has excited many inquir.es
and many queer surmises. These return- were
made under oath, but, it may be that in some
ca-es they would have been ditt'erent, and tnat
many names wou.d have ii-.eo written in tlie
list, had this publication been expected, which
now may be searched for in vain. Our people
have p. obably iound la this list reasons lor cor
recling their exaggerations of ti.e prosperity of
some of their neighbors. The names of some
men who were supposed to be among the
wealthiest persons in tiie whole region are not
in tiie list. Others who were not supposed to be
wealthy, but who lived well, and were rank
ed amongst those enjoying a comfortable com
petency, also do not appear. So it seems that
not a few of our people can live in large houses,
furnish their parlors magnificently, own horses
and ride in carriages, give parties and apparent
ly enjoy all the luxuries of the rich, and yet not
enjoy the ostentation
of appearing in the Income
list. Many may not Le able to see
eachers'I nstitute.—We had the pleasure
of being present at the session of the Teachers'
Institute yesterday afternoon. The.exercises
were exceedingly interesting, and the attend
ance large, there not being a vacant seat In the
room. A great deal is being done. The session
lasted from nine o'clock a. m. until five o'clock
p. m., with only one hour and a half intermis
sion at noon.—Daily,

thus on incomes of less Uian six hundred dol

We wish some of them would set tip a school
and teach other people the art.
Again, there are some people who live plainly
but comfortably, and even elev-itly, but make
no parade-of their means, enjoy earth's b'e.-s
ings in a sensible manner, without creating
envy in the hearts of any one—who were not
supposed to receive any very large income from
t:.eir business, so quietlv have they pursued the
tven tenor of their wiy, yet whose returns are
amongst the largest in the list.
And so people will discover that they have
much less cause for envying the fortunes ot
some than they supposed, aud transfer their
feelings of envy to others, who were once con
sidered no better oil'than lie a\ erage of men.

Popularity.
A great many people at the present day think
more of obtaining a publicity and popularity
than of any other one thing they could possibly
be iiossessed of. But anxious as they may be to
acquire the vain glory of the popular voice,
none ever succeeded to so great an extent as lias
that world-renowned remedy known as Coe's
Cough Balsam. There is scarcely a family in
the land but what consider a supply of this arti
cle as necessary to the household as their flour
or provisions. Experience has taught the peo
ple that no other remeda has ever been put be
fore the public that will cure coughs, colds,
croup, sore throat, and lung complaints, as
quickly and as effectually as Coe's Cough Bal
sam. In the Eastern States, where it lias been
leng known and tented, it is considered as the
most reliable cough remedy extant, and no one
either rich or poor, think of being without it.—
We would suggest to all our readers the neces
sity ef keeping 011 hand an urtiele of this kind
immediate use. It costs but iUc per bottle,
aud is sold at all our drug stores, and is the
