CHAPTER VOL
, von BoiimJOB.
1 On the 7th of November, 1861, the Missis
sippi river wa low, o that the banks were
kdrher than the heads of th men standing
ca tba upper decks of tbe steamer. From
Am field, woods and all along tbe shore
Confederate riflemen were blazing away at
the retreating boats. The rebels were Deck
some distance from the river, oo their fire
waa hla-h and did but little harm. The
mnkMtacka wer thickly peppered with
bullets, but only three men were wounded
after reaohln g the boats, two of whom were
soldiers, and on a member ot Captain
wun'i oomDonr.
. On reachlne th boat, Blackhawk, th
' negro wonder, bad laid down bis musket

. The boat soon carried their beyond "gun'
shot, and sped peacefully on their way
to Cairo, each now feeling that Belmont had
oeen a great vlctorv.and that he had eontnr
uted his share toward it Captain Mason
had cause, to be proud of the work he had
done toward establishing the right ot that
grand old flag to ware all over the United
States of America. " " ',.
Every man in that conflict, small and in.
iirnini-ant as it was compared to the Strug'
elo which followed, gained confidence in
himself and that quiet, stern commander,
who was destined to lead the armies of the
Nation to final victory.
The boats returned to Cairo, and a long
period of Inactivity followed.- Jl few-days
after his return from the battle-field, Luke
received letter from LQlie Heft. Tboy had
returned - shortly after the "troops passed
by their bouse, aod learned; that he hod by
his gallantry saved it. She stated that she
pray daily th.
bo spared, and that thla cruel wan might
come to an eud. Her letter concluded with :
.. "Blackhawk baa disappeared; from the
neighborhood, and it is : supposed that be
baa run away. - I do bot understand that
Strange negro. He baa 1 been an enigma tq
me ever since I wo a child.'' When but a
Utile girl I always shuddered when bis yel
lowish black ; eye met mine, and I then
thought him in leagum with the Kril One,
and, oh.l Luke, I fear bet hates yU( tf you
should ever meet, him, beware) him.
Brother wrote me ot your saving bi life
I can not thank you too much- Should
you moet httn again, door Luke, b It en the
battle-field or wherever it may, remember
that though be your enemy, be la my
brother, and, it poseib!, spore aim." ! -:
"Ye, ye ; I bare spared him, and 1 will
spare blm," sighed tbe young soldier, bow
ing his head in bis band. 'But is not this,
after all, battle between brothers!' Oh,
cruel Indeed Is war at best, but thi fratri
cidal strife is snapping tbe heart-string of
the best ra the land " . : ,. , !
. He promptly answered her letter in as
cheerful a strain aa be could, hoping that
thoir difficulties would soon bo removed
and peace spread ber whito wings over the
land. ' From beginning to end hi letter was
replote with expressions of tenders t love.
The month Of December. 1861, was spent
in drilling and disciplining the troop for ;
tbe long, bard marches, sieges and heavy
battles that were before them. Occasion
ally small scouting parties wer sent out
into the oountry for tha purpose of recon
noitenng. Camp life had grown Irksome to
Luke, and he gained permission to go with
a omall body of cavalry on one of their ex
peditions Into a nclKhborhood in Kentucky
reported to be filled With rebel guerrilla.
Aa Luke was leaving ne met toe captain oi
the ateamer on which be bad gone to Bel
mont, who informed blm that "that nigger
fireman, Blackhawk, had deserted them."
He is a strango being," said Luke,
thou pht fully.
I'll have him tied np and whipped IT I
run find him," the officer retorted.
Luke mounted hia bone and rode away
to tbe boat, which conveyed bim and his
party across tbe river. It bad been raining
that morning, and the woods and earth
were still damp from the flood. They did
not reach the Kentucky shore until late in
the afternoon, and the heavy mist which
enwrapt bill, valley, grove and town bid
them from any prying eyes which might
be on the watch for them. Tbey traveled
slowly along tbe wooded road long after
nightfall had set In. Their guide was a
trusty fellow who knew every foot of
ground. Tbey were liable to be fired upon
bv bushwhackers at any time, consequently
tbe officer carried pistols and the soldiers
carbines ready cocked in band to defend
their lives against an attack.
Luke and the Captain were rifling tide
by aide just behind their guide, when that
personage drew rein and said:
There' turn wun aneao u."
The officer could make out a dark figure
approaching them, and instantly both lev
eled their pistol at it
"Hole on dar, masaal dont ye go fur
sbootin' dis ere niggaht" ald a husky
voice. "I'sa come bean ter snow ye to a
bouse whar am some reb 'n bush
whackers." There wa a halt and a few momonts' con-
veraatlon, and then they inquired about the
numbers of tbe enemy in the house, and
Informed that there were but six.
'Lead tbe way," said tbe Captain of the
cavalry, and they rode slowly forward until
their dusky guide baited upon a bill and
pointed down into a dork glade where there
waa a light gleaming. It came from tba
window ot one of thoee log cabin occupied
by squatter so common in certain parte of
Kentucky at the time of which we write.
"What is going on down merer' luu
naked, as th sounds ot a squeaky fiddle
came to his ear.
"Daucln'." said the negro.
They orept a little nearer, and discovered
number ot bone hitched to the trees
about tbe house. Bo necure were the rev
elers that not even a guard had been left
without to give a note of alarm in cote an
enemv (hould approach.
Leaving the dragoon but a short distance
away, Luke and the Captain crept down to
the log house and through the chink got a
glimpse wubln. Here a scene greeted tneir
eve.
A dozen Confederate aoldiera and omoer
were In the room, their face flushed with
Kentucky whisky. A one-eyed negro waa
aawing away on a squeaky old fiddle, while
each Confederate waa going it at a gallop
with a red -cheeked oountry glrL
"Tot hil whoop 'em up; swing yer part
ner, allaman left I Whoop 'em up I" shout-
ed a large, red-headed fellow in hi shirt
sleeves, who, from bis total lack of uniform,
waa evidently a citizen, and without doubt
the proprietor of the house.
"Br gosh, BaL don't kick so high ur ye'll
knock a feller' nose offn hi face. Look
out, ol woman, ur ye'll punob my eye out

sung out the old squeaky fiddle, until the
red-beau ed host shouted :
"Ladies V thar seats on' gcnUtf tbe Jug."
. , Then there wa a ' shout of laughter
and a scampering away to the high two-
gallon stone lug whlcn ioot in one corner.
"Maw, git the gour.l an' issue ther ra-
hlon ter th boy," said th red-headed

It the door was open and the sharp -point of

doors and window were black with toe

"Bold I" groaned tire red-heuded squatter.
"Why, mawy ws're- two dented tools, ber

"The first man who moves dies," said
Luke Mason, leaping into the cabin, a cooked
pistol in each hand. . - ,r. ,''
Tney stooa motionless as auttues, ana u.o
girls sniffled and cried at the fate of their
sweethearts, ine cavalrymen oisarmci
them and marched them out one at a time.
Aa the last on passed out of the house
nnder the escort Luke turned to go, when
the black face of tbolr informant- appeared
at the door, and with chuckle the negro
said: ....
"Golly, Maesa Mason, yer goV'em."
,, 'JWhatr, Blaokhawk areT,on;lee!,,
But that mysterious, spirit-like personage
flitted away into.' the .Barkhciin and disap

afterward. They cohveyed the prisoners to
Camp without any trouble.,,,;.., ;;
. Then came auothar kn period ot in
action.' Camp bfe became irksome to many
during that long winter of 1861 and 1HCU.
The field, the march, even at dead winter,
was preferable to lying in the camp.

'Co yer got tired ' layin' in camp,"
chuckled old Arkansaw Tom, who trudged
along at his side. "Ye wanted omctbinr

The mon found travel so slavish and dif

Mason. "You will need them keep them."

staggering along In tbe mud, tbe persplra
tion streaming from til face; "we don't
need any thing t' keep ns warm on this
blasted march. I've a mind t' throw my
cloak away." '
"Better change yer mind," said Tom
Luke assured them that when they
camped they would need tbeir blankets, but
many became so exhausted that they throw
them aside notwithstanding hi assurance.
Evening came on. Luke gazed back on
the long line of men trudging illent and
gloomy through the mud, and noted how
poorly they were prepared tor the etonn
with which they were threatened. The sky
became overcast and a heavy gloom settled
over thoVorest
They went into camp at dusk. A floe
oold rain sot in, and the men began to sore
ly need the blanket tbey had thrown sway.
"What in tnunoer 'm i goin- v ooi"
growled Max ; " there's no place dry nuff to
lay on 'a no blanket fur kiver."
(Shouldn't ha' throwed 't away," sua
Arkaniaw Tom, who had been wise enough
to carry hi. ''Co'se ye didn't need 't oa
th march, but th' minlt y atop ye git cold
all over, then yer want It mighty bad."
Bivouacked m mud and rain, tbe army wa
miserable enough. The sick and wounded
were left at the bouses tbey passed. A few
shot on their advance next morning told
that the enemy's scout were on the watoh
for them.
Thev marched all day and th next, and
when evening had com Luke was informed
that Fort Donelson was near. Here, In a
ravine, almost within light of the fort, oar
friend encamped for the nigbt. It mowed
before morning, and many of tbe soldier
had their feet frosted. : !
It wss dark when Colonel Smart regv
ment went Into camp, and Captain Mason
taw nothing, aav a fewdiitant camp-fires,
to indicate th nearness of an enemy. Bo
woke at eaaly dawn, and going up to the top
of th bill, found himself in full Flow, of the

For an'hour the boat ware enveloped In a

Bre and death issued.'' While the gun-boat
were making such! and bavoo among tbe
land batteries and dismounting gun after
gun, th fleet wa getting considerably
pounded by the rebel guns. 'i
The leading ooai waa wunin two nunarea
yards of the river, and the roar of cannon
incessant.' At such close quarter the exe
cution must bo terrible,' and Luke saw one
boat after another dropping down the river
visibly disabled;- TbO Whole 'fleet soon fol
lowed, and the engagement tor tbe day waa
over.
1 The wild ebecr from the rebel work -gave
evidence that they (upposed they bad gained
a victory.
Captain Mason wa still watching tbe dis
abled boat when the Adjutant cant gal-,

- "Fall to I" cried- Captain Mason.

An occasional firing bad been kept np all

The .ground: froze bard that night, and
the soldiers, without Are or blanket, suf
