KILLED AT RESACA.
The aJrole Death of I'nloa Soldier Whose Sweetheart Had Qnea tluned Hli Courage. . Doubtless the heroine she appears in the sequel of the following atory was merely a silly girl, with uu exag- . gtrated opinion of her own power of judgment and an idea of the "pomp land glory" of war not in accordance with the facts; but when one sits iu judgment on the conduct of a brave and true man, under circumstances in 'which personal experience is inherent ly, impossible, even without that ter rible consequences of the present in stance, a harsher name than presump tion is deserved. Mr. Ambrose Bierce, in a volume of exceedingly vivid war stories, tells the tule'. '. "The best soldier on our staff .was Lieut. brayle, and us he was commonly in full uniform, especially in action, when most officers are content to be less flamboyantly attired, he was a very striking and conspicuous figure. We liked him as much as we admired him. althouch we observed thnt he had one objectionable and unsoldierly 1 1 1 (i 1 1 r Vi a wna l"i In nf Vita nnlipniyo Whatever the circumstances, he never took cover, while men older in service ana years, higher in rank ana oi un questionable integrity, were loyally, and with a better wisdom, preserving L ii i. vital ui a uui 1 1 ?

The general and his staff were at the '. right extreme of the arc, when, at a momentary break in the firing, Brayle was sent with a message to the officer in command at the extreme left. In stead of taking the longer line through the woods and among the men, as was obviously indicated, to everyone's amazement he cantered into the open field, parallel to the enemy at a dis tance of about 200 yards. Instantly the entire fortified line was in a crack ling conflagration; our forces sent back an answering fire. ...

"Talk about heroes," a southern man remarked in a club talk over the re union of north and south, "I know, a man in Mew Orleans who is what I call a real hero. He fought through the . civil war and escaped without being wounded. Since the war his dearest possession has been the confederate uniform in which he battled for the lost cause. This worn suit of clothes has been carefully packed away, and it has long been his declared intention to be burled in it when he dies. The other day an old comrade, dying by inches of . some mortal malady, .ex plained that his own confederate uni form had been stolen or destroyed by moths, and his last days were embit tered by the fact that he could p6t b1 given a soldier burial. vile begged rny friend to let him be buried in his suit of confederate gray;, he. did not seem to estimate properly-the-eacrtflce he was asking. , My hero friend told me the story, and said it was the severest trial, he- had ver encountered in' life the struggle over the dying man's request.

A Controversy Between Naval Officer Which Resembles the liny. aoa-Schle? Affair, i History being but a continuous suc cession of repetitions, we do not have to search far in the past to find a dis pute regarding the award of honor for a neval battle which bears an in teresting if not a very close resem blance to the contemporary contro versy concerning Schley and Samp son. It stands out as one of the pic turesque incidents of the war between the states, and Farragut is the cen tral figure. After the capture of New Orleans by the fleet of that famous admiral he sent the report of his op erations to Washington by the hand of Capt. Theodorus Bailey. The captain, innocent of the contents of the report which he bore from hi commander, BAILEY TELLS THE STORT. was eagerly welcomed at the capital, and in the presence of Senator Grime, of Iowa, was asked by the secretary of the navy to tell the story of the fall of the Crescent city. When Bailey had finished Grimes exclaimed: "Come with me. The account of this great battle must be told on the floor of the senate." In the senate chamber Capt. Bailey wa greeted with emotional cordial My, and! members of the house hurried over to listen to his recital of the im posing and stirring events, in which he had taken an important part, leading, as he did, the first division up the river even in advance of Farragut. At the conclusion of his narrative the repre sentatives returned to their chamber with the impulse to give thanks of congress to both Bailey and Farra gut, while Senator Grimes instantly arose in the senate for the same pur pose. But before the motion was made Secretary Welles had read Farragut' report, which did not refer to Bailey as having led the way, and indeed rep resented the fleet as ascending the riveT in two columns abreast, himself at the head of one of these. Welles hastened a warning to Grimes, and the senator, in the midst of his eulo- gium, was obliged to call a halt on the enthusiasm which was sweeping the two houses along. He explained the matter as well as he could to Capt. Bailey, who still sat in the chamber, but naturally that officer went forth filled with humiliation. Afterward Farragut alone received the vote of thanks for the victory, and it was seven years later, and after much correspondence between Turn and Bailey, that he was brought to see the error which he had committed by inclosing in his report a sketch of the movements as he had originally planned them, but which had'been ren? dered vitally incorrect by a subse quent change in his plans. It was then that he wrote to his wounded sub ordinate: "My examination of the printed diagram has fully satisfied me of the justice of your appeal. I shall therefore forward to the department a correct sketch of the final attack as we passed up the river." Boston Globe. CHANCE MEETING IN BATTLE. How a Confederate and a Yaakee Rushed Into Each Oth er's Arms. Get an old soldier started andihe can reel them off by the yard. Here is one of their stories: ' "During Stonewall Jackson's first valley campaign, and the day before the battle of Cross Keys, I was stand ing," said an ex-confederate officer, "with several other officers of Elwell' division under the shade of a clump of trees in an old field overlooking a deep cut in the road through which the troops were marching. Suddenly I observed Maj. Bob Wheat, the famous commander of Wheat's battalion of Dick Taylor's Louisiana brigade, look ing directly forward at a lot of federal prisoners approaching under guard. Wheat was a most magnificent speci men of manhood, and, guided by his in-tense gaze, I soon singled out among the prisoners the object of it, a man of like proportions to himself. . In a mo ment more Wheat had rushed down the bank with outstretched arms, ex claiming: , " 'O, yes, I thought that was you giv ing us so much trouble.' "The prisoner opened wide his arms and rushed to meet Wheat in an em brace which showed' to us onlookers low tender must have been their re lations in the past and how great their friendship still. After a long embrace Wheat told his friend to march on to IMchmond and he would see that he was well cored for and soon ex changed. Then, turning to us, Wheat explained that the federal officer was Col. Windham, an Englishman, who had served with him on Gen. Abusana's staff in the Garibaldian struggle for Italian freedom."

The Atlantic Transport Co. issued the following statement last evening regarding the fate of the passengers and crew of twe steamer Mohegan, which was wrecked last Friday evening off the Lizard, be tween the Manacles and the Low lands: . , "Of the passensrers, 11 have been saved. 10 bodies have been recovered, and 33 are missing. "Of the crew and cattlemen 29 have been saved, 14 bodies have been recov ered and 51 are missing." Since this statement was issued nine other bodies hnve been picked up, ip- eluding two that have been identified as those of pnsxem,'ers. . The latest advices from Falmouth say thnt 38 bodies have been identified, mostly the bodies of sailors. Four are ns yet unidentified, including those of two elderly ladies. Nine of the bodies have been brought to Falmouth, the others to the village church at St. Keverlne. The rescued passengers are being shel tered at cottages along the shore and the crew at the sailors' home at Fal mouth. The cause of the disaster remains the profoundest mystery. Nobody attempts to explain how the Mohegan got so far north of her course from Rix to seven miles. There was no fog at the time; while the wind on her port quarter was not sufficient to pre vent her answering the helm. It has been suggested that her compass was faulty, but daylight lasted long after Eddystone light was passed. The sailors say the fact that the Lizard light was not visible should have serv ed to give the alarm. I Remarkable stories of rescues con tinue. Robert Barrow, n seaman, per formed the feat of swimming unaided throuch the roughest water to Cove1 rnck Point, n distance of two and one half miles. He climbed up the rugged cliff, where a searching party found him early the next morning, complete ly exhausted. A. C. Smith, of Oregon, n passenger, surrendered to a womafi in the water wreckage that was sup porting him and swam ashore unaid ed. The woman was saved. 1 Messrs. Smith and W. J. Blooming dale say there was the greatest difflr culty in launching the boats. The ropes were new and stiff, and the blocks would not work. Four or five times as many sailors as should have been necessary struggled to lower each boat. The lockers were hard to open. The crew, in a chivalrous effort to save the women, made the mistake of undermanning the boats. There; were only four sailors in one boat, which capsized as soon as it was launched. Up to midnight 51 bodies had been recovered. Some were found miles oway, in eoves; and it is expected that more will be washed ashore to-day, Mirny persons undoubtedly were kill ed by being dashed on the rough rocks, who would have escaped if cast ashore on an ordinary coast. Some of the bodies are horribly mangled. A good deal of -Jewelry and money, has been found. As all the navigating officers were lost, it is doubtful whether light will ever be thrown on the causes of the disaster. SHOT BY PROVOST GUARDS.
