Cektxud H. R.—The trial of Geo. B. Bead ve, the
Illinois Central Railroad, in tbe CircnitConrt, was
brought to a conclusion yesterdar, and resulted in
a rcraict for tbe plaintiff lor SI,OOO.
Tbe action was brought against the Company to
recover damages for injuries enstained by the plain*
tiff at Clinton, on the night of the Bth of January,
1802, whilst in a sleeping car attached to tbe accom
modation train of the defendant. The accommo
dation train was, it is alleged, behind time when
the accident occurred; and whilst standing on tbe
main track, it was run into by a freight train,
. which literally smashed the sleeping car to atoms.
The defendant was much cut about the head, his
right hand was so severely scalded that the muscles
have been contracted in consequence, and scries
of other injuries were inflicted.
On the verdict being announced, the conned for
the defendant moved for a new trial*

patriotic and exceedingly appropriate speech by
Col. Eastman, to which Colonel Malmborg briefly
replied on the pan ol tbe regiment. The boys
then partook of a sumptuous repast, after which a
very pleasant boor was scent by tbe company. A
full history of this splendid regiment was given in
Saturday's Tbibune, bnt perhaps} an account of.
Its journey home, may be acceptable to its many
Chicago mends. On the 17th of April tbe men left
Larkin’s Landing, where tbe regiment hnd

steamer Minna, and arrived at Cairo last Monday,
leaving that city for Chicago on Wednesday
Tbe men win be paid almost immediately, when
they will be liberated to spend and enjoy their
hard-earned month's furlough. This is a good op
’ portunity for loyal men to join a splendid regiment
and one which lias won a high reputation for tbe
fighting qualities ol its members. At tbe dose of
this wicked rebellion no regiment will bave«i
brighter record than tbe 55tb Illinois.
Battery B of.tbe Ist Illinois ArtQletr, better

Police Coubt.—Nothing of importance occurred
on Saturday to disturb the even tenor ofevents at
this shrine of tbe blind goddess.* There were about
tbe same crowd of miserable drunkards, whose
regular attendance at the establishment mast prove
their lives to be a coenterpart of tbe ancient Sile

relsome neighbors, all of whom underwent the

Armory with their presence, bnt tbe eastern is nec
essary, as it is supposed, to uphold .the “ majestic
dignity’ 1 ol tbe law. Tbe following ore a lew of
tbe cases that appeared, requiring magisterial in
terference: . :*■
The Triale Qf a Conftdble.^* Jbel Lull, a county
constable, living In tbcWcstDlvielon, was charged
with selling goods without the necessary license.
The charge was admitted, bnt it was urged in de
fense that Loll was not liable, as he had not sold
any articles as a means of livelihood, but bad
simply deposed of S4O worth of household furni
ture to oblige a widowed neighbor, and that this
objection "was concurred in by Judge Drummond.
Owing to the absence of certain testimony, tbe
case was continued until next Saturday.
On Semens.— Tbe juvenile burglars, Patrick
Quinn ana James Dooley, charged with stealing a
•*purp“doglromßoso Larking.as stated in Fri
day’s TnmuNE, were brrought up for further ex
amination, and owing to tbe Insufficiency of pro
secuting evidence, were discharged.
SrvMcarSe' Intelligence.— Clara Weeks, anoto
lions disciple of Bacchus, being again discovered
incapably drunk, was dlejK>sed 6t for twenty-nine
days in default of JI4 fine. W. Sumpod, a respec
tably dressed man, described as a farmer, was
-.found on Friday by officer C. Pilgrim, helplessly
drunk, on Jackson street. On searching nim at
the station house, nearly sioo wag discovered In
bis pockets. A fine of $5 and co.-l&wae assessed,
and tbe man departed considerably richer than be
would bare done, bad he not fallen into the hands
ol the police.
The Conwo Orm— The Czab akd Castes
tee.—At last we hove the libretto of the lorthcom-
Jng opera of tbe Chicago Musical Union, one of the
most readable specimens of operatic literature we
have ever seen, doing great credit to the transla
tor's skill. We append an outline of the plot and
incidents of this forthcoming treat, the advertise
ment of which, elsewhere in this issue, will answer
the many questions the public are asking. It will
also uve toe cast of characters In the following:
Peter tbe Great, Emperor of all the Russians, and
Peter Ivanofi; c deserter from the Russian armv,
-work both as carpenters in the employ of Mr. Brown
in Boards m. The embassadors or France and Eng
land, being advised of the presence of tbe Czar,
disguised as a carpenter, try to find him oat, and
either to enter with him into some treaties advan
tageous to their country, or. in case of failure, to
‘ seize him hr force and carry him off to their coun
tries. Lord Syndham. the English cmhast-ador.
employs the stupid, self-conceited Burgomaster of
fiaardam to find for him a Russian by the name of
Peter, without telling him, however'bis real char
acter. The Mayor goes to work, but happens to
fall in with Ivanofi; tbe deserter, whom he brings
before the English embassador. Lord Syndham,
believing him to be the Czar, tries to arrange some
treaties with him, and finally gives him a passport
-with which be might safely get over to Engl and.
"The people of Saardam, being told that tbe Czar is
dn their midst, prepare for Ivanoff, the supposed
' Cr*r, a public reception.
Is the meantime the French embassador has
found out the real Czar, by telling him a story of a
Russian defeat which makes him betray himself,
And succeeds in all his diplomatic objects. The
Czar, whose presence at home is needed to crash a
rebellion against his throne, is looking for some
means to get away unobserved and unmolested hy
the Holland!sh authorities and English cruisers.
Bering by chance the passport that the English
Ambassador gave to Ivanoff, he seizes it, as the
onJv chance of escape, giving I vanhoff another pa
nerinstead, which he (Ivan.) mnrt not open before
sne -hour bos passed. During this time the peo

otnmm*ebots are heard, the door leading to the
wort is opened, and the Czar. In company wlta Le-

Saturday, April £S—the three hnndreth anniver
sary of William Ehakspe arc's birth,—'bring .also
the two hundred and forty-eighth anniversary of
bla death—was observed In Chicago with appro
priate ceremonies. The 6L George’s Society—com
posed exclusively of countrymen of Shakspeare,
felt themselves called upon In an especial manner
to do honor to the memory of the great poet, and
made active preparations therefor. The proposed
prograpune was not fully carried ont, owing par
tlaliy to the miserable weather, and partially to
the defection.or at least deby of some to whom had
been entrusted the execution of details. Neverthe
less the occasion was a pleasant one. and will be
long remembered by all who participated in the
A number of members of the St. George's Sodc-
S-, accompanied by several gentlemen of other na
onnllties, took a apodal train in the afternoon and
proceeded to Rosohlii Cemetery, for the purpose of
planting a Shakespearean Oak on the burial lot
owned there by this Sodcty. The party was not
large, nor was the ceremonies lengthy in conse
quence of the unfavorable weather. The oak—a
young white sapling—was planted nearly in the
center of the lot, and a bottle of wine was broken
over the roots. Wiliam Boldfiwortb, the President
of the Society; William Wayman, ex-President:
Alex White, 11. D. BlackaH, William Tuitle,:Cap
tain of Police, Sergeant George Miller and others,'
spoke a few words, short sentiments taking the
place of long speeches. The party then tetumed
The commemorative services were given under
the auspices of the St. George's Society, in the
evening, at Bryan Ball. The Society Is deserving
of great praise for the very excellent manner In
which the hail was fitted up for the occasion, as.
well as for the way in which the programme was
filled. Tbe stage was decorated with a fbll size
portrait of Shakspeare, edged with inscriptions,
and surmounted by the cross of St. George. The
supports were the flags of England and the United
States, end on each side: the background was
very effectively filled in. The panels ol the gallery
were nted as the grounds of Inscription, each one
bearing a Shaksperian motto. Tbe tout ensemble
was very fine; and the audience, though not quite
so large as could be wished, was still not a small
one. the gallery being occupied by several hun
dreds in addition to « nearly filled floor.
The opening piece wa* an Overture, from Men
.delssohu’s music to the *' Midsummer Night's
Dream,” performed by tbe Great Western Band.
It was accurately performed.
The following, written by E. Colbert of this city,
was then pronounced by Evelyn Evans:
Three hundred years ngo to-day was bom In an
obscure village in the middle of England one who,
though boasting no honorable birth, was destined
to shine ns the sun in the literary firmament—Wil
liam Shakspeare, the Bard of Avon History does
not stale that an eagle hovered around his Infantile
bead, or that he strangled a serpent at hls birth.
He-was a common looking child, wit u common sur
roundings. This, and nothing more.
Neither in hls boyhood do we witness the exhi
bition of any of those feats of intellectual prowess
with the record ofwhlch historians delight to deck
the monuments of departed heroes. We read ofno
prodigies of childish acquirement, no nrccocltv of
intellect, not even of that strange ana wondrous
leaning and longing after tbe beautiful, which is
usually dignified with the name orjuveiiile genius.
None of this; and opportunities for the develop
ment ol tbe latent talent wiihlu him were few in
deed. He received but s common school educa
tion at the free school in Stratford, which in those
days meant—wc cannot say how little. Even that
was soon concluded through ft roily misfortune.
Ncr In his adolescence did 1m give audible promise
of that sunlight of intellect which was destined to
flood the whole earth with its rays, through all
As vas the hoy, so was the young man—giving
no sign of future greatness, save in the possession
of that free, fearless spirit of adventure which is
the true type of Nature's nobleman—he who dis
dains the petty conventionalities and repudiates
the trammeling formulas of society. He surround
ed himself with family ties at the early age of eigh
teen ; and even in that advanced stage of existence
we recognize ouly the spirit of a man which, like
tbe young eagle, wastes not Its strength in petty
circling flights ere its pinions arc grown, but re
mains unseen by the other denizens of the air till
he has attained tbe power to soar heavenward amid
the bright effulgence, almost at the first essay, leav
ing all others for nway In the ignoble depths below.
Bis earlier life is nothing save as a prelude to
the coming man. Bis boisterous sportiogs, his
carousals, ins experience as tutor even, arc as
naught. In hls deer stealing experience we first
see the germ ofpoetic talent, and to that »ct of in
discretion wc are indebted jrobably for all worth
knowing. That flight to London at the age of
twenty-three, to escape the wrath of a Lucy—ig
noble as it was—proved to be the road to bits use
fulness and renown. Bow shall we trace Mm
thereafter, through the successive occupations of
call boy, minor actor, writer, and leader till he be
came the bosom friend of - earths noblest minds,
among whom he shone as tbe son among stars—
the man before whose amazing intellectual wealth
all who knew him bowed in reverential homage.,
We cannot follow his history chronologically; It
is only as the natural historian counts develop
ments and compares phases of existence, that we
can hope to study him. The lapse of less than
three short centuries has enveloped in the cloud of
tradition all that pertains to bis personal career.
Yet these clouds are only as the fog on the horizon.
Above that bound rises majestically the orb of
light—the one central mind, which. Use the god of
day. sends forth scintillations innumerable and
eternally enduring. Scarce a breath ofvapor obscures
the view. The difficulty, if any, lies only in our
selves, as unable to bear the effulgent pleatitnde of
his beams, we blink and gaze, and torn and look
again, til) almost blinded with the effort. See him
as he darts forth his rays of purest light, illumining
tbe dark and hitherto undiscovered recesses of the
human heart, bringing into full play the affections
and passions, and powers of his characters, and
opening up to ns a mine of rich treasures, spark
ling and flashing like the blaze of diamonds, where
before we only saw the dim shadowy outline of its
form. Watch him os with true pantomimic power
! be exposes to view ail the variations of human
thought, and action, and with kaleidoscopic ‘versa
tility changes from scene to scene, from object to
object till we are bewildered with the effect, and
feel—if not intoxicated like tbe opium leveller—
yet as If the tree of tbe knowledge of good and evil
had shed its fruit for us. and we had eaten and be
come truly wise..
Id thin one trait lies the peculiar, the omnipo
tential power of Shakspeare. Be does not attempt
to create character, but to unfold it. Be aims not
to give to the world that which was not , but to re
veal that which was and is and ever shall be. Be
sought not the vain glory of a Faust who was
swallowed up by hls own creation, bat to bold the
mlrrorto already existing nature, to give herself
undifgulscdiy, nothing. extenuating nor setting
aught in malice t to present the image of the things
themselves, and edify or amuse only by their com
parisons or contrasts. Beyond this he had no am
bition. he soared not after the Illimitable, or even
the difficult; bis situations arc ail possible, hls act
ions pat oral; the substantive la presented first, then
the verb; the accessories arc applied jndidoosly,
never with a too lavish hand
It le of the heart that Sbakepcare speaks: be
probes to be inmost recesses, and lavs bore its
moat bidden 'workings. The subterfuges of tbe
hypocrite are like plastic day in tus hinds.
At “one fell ewoop ,f be dives deep and brings to
tbe surface tbe leading trait, which there fixed is
surrounded by its necessary adjuncts only. In
each of hie personalities one secs tbe innate char
acter—the primary motive of action; it shines ont
in every word, derying concealment. Neither are
they elaborated so as to be wearisome. One
touch, and tbe image >s before you, sot a thousand
labored words, bat one bold, truth-speaking line
brings ont in foil relief all one needs to know.
Another and another Is treated with equal skill.
Almost in the twinkling ofr an eye, the panorama
is before yon. Its parts all separately introduced
yet so rapidly, and so skillfully blended as to give
tbe Idea of complete, perfect oneness.
As be speaks of the heart, so be speaks to the
heart. His portrayals are things of life—speaking
likenesses. We appreciate them Instantaneously.
Not that it is given to any one man in any age to
comprehend the inexhaustible variety of character
to be found in bis works, bat that all not beyond
onr experience, and therefore above appreciation,
•isinstantly recognized as a perfect personation.
Hence the varying estimation in which Sbakspeare
is held. Tbe most unlettered boor Is melted to
tears or carried away in raptures at a proper rendi
tion cf bis characters, because there is a language
of tbe heart which needs no learning to enable us
to interpret. But be comprehends not all. Tbe
more exquisite touches, the blendings
of tbe natural with tbe artificial are only to be dnly
appreciated as we rise in onr knowledge of human
ity. Onr horizon is limited tbns by woat we know;
but never yet has one attained to that elevation
whence be could look down and beyond tbe con
fines of Shakespearian thought. lie who knows
most has always venerated the Bard most highly,
and inasmuch as the heart of man is substantially
tbe same in all ages and nuder all conditions, vari
able only In its manifestation, the perfectly truth
ful is always recognizable under tbe shifting shams
of civilized advancement. That which Is true in
one age is true in all; and the characters ofSbakes
peare will never die, never grow antiquated, bat
always retain the vigor and freshness of the Ellza
betbian age, so long as humanity Itself endures.
. This plenitude Is now so universally acknowl
edged, that criticisms are justly regarded as odi
ous. To tell how well or how badly Shakespeare
wrote, to attempt to institute a standard of judg
ment is just so much as to essay tbe determination
of absolute brightness in tbe solar ray—it la rather
the standard of absolute perfection to which, as to
a touchstone, wc refer all else. We say “shake
epeare wrote, 1 ’ and we say “Tbesnn shines.” The
want of appreciation in cither case lies not with
them but with us—the clouds which obscure the
car of Apollo are of earthly origin; beyond them
the sun always shines bright, serene, dear, beau
Tbe natal day of Sbakspeare Is also tbe day of
SLGeorge. While Englishmen may feel justly
proud of bis fame, they are only his more immedi
ate neighbors. Tbe whole world claims kin. A
perfect cosmopolite in thought, be bad made tbe
learning of other peoples bis own; be was equally
at borne in delineating the specialities of men of
foreign birth as of those who drew their first breatu
on bfs native soil.
Two hundred aud forty-eight years hare passed
slncclhe great one departed. Be still lives—his
memory shall never die. Far as the wide ranje of
civilization extends, his works are read. Tbellln
dooandthe Laplander equally with ourselves. ap
preciate them. In bis wnlines, the great Shaba*
pea re flourishes in Immortal vonth. When the
conquerors of earth shall hare been forgotten, he
who opened up a new universe of thought shall be
cherished in the memories of a grateful world.
Each succeeding age does him greater homage,
and when man shall bare attained to the highest
(tosslble perfection of intcl'ectaal culture, then,
and then only, will the value of the services which
he rendered to humanity be really appreciated.
The noble thoughts to which ha first expres
sion will form the asiomata or fn'nre ages, and
their purifying, elevating, ennobling influence,
will largely tend to bring about that for which all
men pray—the good time coming. Then, and then
on'y will his culogium he written; then only will
theworld know bow largely It has been indebted
to William Ebakepeare.
The eulogy was given In a very effective manner,
and the reader was enthusiastically applauded at
the dose: the favor with which it was received
was largely dne to the delivery of Mr. Evans.
Two voting ladies—Misses Johnson—sang the
duet “I know a bank,” In a very pleasing manner.
It was understood to he their first appearand* U
was certainly more than creditable. The audience
signified their delight hy a rapturous encore.
Tbe following Is the rest of the programme:
Seven Apes—(As Yon Like It) Evelyn Evans.
Hy Lodging Is on the Cold Ground,..

Selections from Gamlet, .....Evelyn Evans.

Finale—National airs of all Nations Orchestra.
All the dificrent Items of tbe programme were
well received and each artist drew forth an encore.
Tbe accompanyist, whose name was not on .the
bills, deserves passing mention as a youth of great
promise; bis manipulation was excellent.
At the conclusion of tbe public soiree in Bryan
Hall, tbe leading members of thcSoclety and Invited
guests adjourned to the European Hotel, where a

On Sunday morning of last week (Apnl ID. Bov
O. D. Cummins, D.' D.. was duly Installed Rector

of the Protestant Episcopal Church. The ceremony

CONSECRATION OF, TRIKITT CHURCH.
Although Trinity Church has been occupied a« a
honseof worship by the Society for some time,
owing to the fact that there was a debt hanging
over, and existence ef a rule which, prohibits its
consecration under such circumstances, Trinity
- Church was not formally consecrated until yester
day morning, tbe difficulty which prohibited this
formality having been entirely removed. Notwith
standing tbe inauspicious cacditlon of tbe weather
a large congregation gathered te witness the In
texerting ceremony. Tbe term of consecration in
the Episcopal service is familiar to all and need not
be' repeated. The ceremony was ptrticl
paled • In by nlae clergymen. Among
them Bev. Dr. Spafiord, of Ohio, who read
the opening morning service; Rev. Mr, Stout, the
Assistant Rector, who read tbe lessons; Rev.
Charles Ecward Cheney, of Christ Church, who
read the morning prayqrs; Bishop Whitehouse,
Rev. Mr. Van Dozen, Rev. Mr. Schcnck, of Emanu

morning service, Dr. Cummins came forward and
made an eloquent appeal to the congregation, now
that the church edifice is paid for, to contribute a
sum sufficient to purchase a Rectory lor the borne
of the Pastor. Rev. Mr. Schenck followed Dr.
Cummins and urged the matter upon the congrega
tion with much force. Be said that Gad had. sent
them a Rector wholly acceptable to their hearts and
minds, and it waa their duty—and It should be per
formed cheerfully and with alacritr —that be should
have a home where he could dispense hospitality to

A Scrape —Antony H. Delight, commonly
known as “ Tony Delight, ” was arrestedfon Sat
urday and brought before United States Commis
sioner Boyne, charged with unlawfhDy opening a
letter addressed to a girl named Nedic, and
who appears to be possessed of great personal
attractions, and for some time past has been lost
sight of by her friends, who have been in the most
intense state of anxiety about her. Some eaa
pidon appears to have- existed in the
minds of tbe young lady’s relatives. that
she was secreted in some part of the aty
where she was basking occasionally in tbe delight
ful smiles of tbe eminent barber and a gen
tleman of the burnt cork persuasion. In order to
test this fact, a letter is said to have been written
to Nellie by her sister; enfrciting her to return to
, her borne.' The letter was taken to the post office
by a detective officer, and two gentlemen who wore
acquainted with thehand writing of the letter, were
set to watch the post office. Shortly alter tbe let
ter was posted. Delight and a Hr. Aldington ap
peared on the scene. The letter was taken from, the
post office by Delight and read by him to
Arlington. Tbe contents appeared to afford both
gentlemen much merriment. A warrant was im
mediately obtained, and in tbe course of half an
hour Delight was arrested. Before tbe Commislon

the case might stand over until Monday, which was
acceded to upon hls furnishing substantial bail for
The punishment prescribed for tbe offence with
which the defendant Is charged Is a fine not ex
ceeding SSOO and imprisonment not exceeding
twelve months. Immediately upon leaving tbe
court, Dcilghtiwas again arrested for threatening to
kill one Joseph Goodrich, a brother-in-law of Miss
Farnsworth's, and Mr. Arlington, who was with
him, was arrested for open adultery with one Miss
Richards, a young friend of the first named lady.
Both parties were taken before a Justice and held
to bail in the sum of SSOO for their appearance, Ar
lington before Justice Brown at S o'clock on Tues
day, and Delight before Justice DeWolf at the
same hour on Thursday.
Seniors Disaster.—An unfortunate occurrence
has happened !n connection with the erection o?
tbe beautiful edifice for the First Uni"
tartan Church, on tbe comer of Wabash
avenue and Hubbard Courts. It is noth
ing less than the settling of tbe walls or the
building to that extent that they will have to be
taken down to prevent the fall of tbe entire struc
ture. Tbe foundations appear to have been im
properly placed. It is a fact in connection with tbe
erection of all large buildings in this city, which in
this case appears to have been overlooked, that, in
order to ensure stability, the foundations mnstrest
npon the blue clay which underlies tbe soil and the
stratum of sand directly beneath. Whenever this
fact is remembered and the fdundations placed in
harmony therewith, there has never been an In
stance of settling known. Quicksand will not sus
tain heavy burdens, and builders should remember
this. This disaster will tense an Increased expen
diture equal te one-tblrd of the original estimated ‘
cost of the building.
Heatt Jewtlbt Business.—Perhaps in no
department of trade is tbe financial prosperity of
the community sooner evlnc(£ than tbe demand
for a lavish expenditure in diamonds and expcn-“
sire jewelry and plate. This branch of trade baa
more than quadrupled la Chicago during the last
three years, and under tbe leadership of Messrs.
Giles, Pro. & Co., who have a store here in connec
tion with a wholesaling establishment in New
York, and manufactory in Switzerland, has become
equal to that of New Orleans (the Pam of Ameri
ca) In its palmiest days, and in its style not far be
hind New York. All tbe iewellere have found It
expedient to enlarge their stores, and Messrs.
Giles, Bro. & Co., finding all their large room on
Lake street demanded for the more effectual dis
play of their immense stock of diamonds, gold and
silver plate, have fitted op tbe second floor for
docks, and tbe wholesaling department.
Mass Meeting or Working Hen.—A call has
been issued, plgnedby the Presidents oftbe various
trades associations in this city, fora great mass
meeting of working men, for the purpose of organ
izing a General Trades Union to protect themselves
against tbe aggression ol capital- Working men
bave a perfect right to meet and organize tor that
orany other purpose not illegal, but we doubt
much if any good will result from each a move
ment. Independent of the great appreciation ol
prices which would follow a general advance in
wages, and tbe consequent fact that workmen
wonld be no better off than now, it Is wall to re
member that numerous similar attempts elsewhere
bave uniformly proved unsuccessful, and generally
injurious to all concerned.
Counteufcits.—Counterfeit fives on tbe bank of
Trumansbnrg, New York, arc In circulation In this
cily. They have a herd of cattle in tbe upper loft
hand comer and farmers loading hay in tbe right
lower; sin tbe other corners, with large 5 red bor

•center, protecting the wagon train, which was on
the Shreveport road
Gen. Banks and staff rode upon the field by the
time this disposition of .our forces was effected,
and word was sent to Gen. Franklin, to make all
speed for the scene of the momentarily expected
About 6 o’clock, tbe firing between the skirmish
ers became very hot, and in a short time our skir
mish line was driven hack anon the main body by
an overwhelming force. The whole strength of
tbe enemy was' teen advanced, and heavy and re
peated volleys were discharged and replied to on
oar right and center. Soon this portion of our
line became heavily engaged, and ait onr available
strength was required to prevent its being crushed
by tbe masses or tbe enemy. Our left, which was
now, also, hotly fighting, was necessarily much
weakened, and u was observed that a strong body
of tbe enemy was making .tn a dense piece of
woods, preparatory 'to dashing down and flank
ing this end of'-onr line.* Tbe danger was
plain and imminent, but there .was no
remedy. General Stone ordered General Lee to
have Niros’ battery withdrawn, although It was
doing great execution, in order that it
become a prize to the enemy, and Gen. Lee sent'
bis Atd-de-Cainp, Col. J, S. Brisbln, to withdraw'
tbehatteir. On reaching the point, its removal
was found impossible, nearly every one of tbe
hones having been killed. In a few moments more
a solid mass of the rebels swept down npon the
spot and four of the guns were token, the other
two being dragged from tbe field by hand, -The
havoc made in the ranks of the enemy at this point
of the action is represented as appalling, the whole
sixgnnshelching. forth doable charges of grape
and cannistcr; and some five or six rounds were
fired between the time the rebels left the woods
until the artillerymen were forced from their pieces.
As tbe rebels were in mass, the execution such a
shower of missiles caused can be easily imagined
The two senior officers of tbe battery were wound
ed. Lieut. Snow mortally, he having since died
Tbe forces that made this charge were command
ed by the rebel Gen. Wouton. who fell shot through
the body with four halls, . .
The fighting on all partxpf our line was now at
short range, and, to use t£ expression of one of
lac participants, “ we were bolding on by the skin
of our teeth only.” It was known that Franklin’s
troops had been sent for, and anxious and wistful
wcre.the glances cast to tbe rear. Gen. Cameron
with hie brigade came np, and going at once Into
action on the right, where the battle again waxed
hottest, created the impression that the veterans
of the Nineteenth bad arrived, and a glad, and ex
ultant shout went up from our wearied and despe
rately situated little band. This belief was siren°th
ened.by the arrival of Gen- Franklin, who dashed
boldly into the thickest of tbe fray, cap in hand
« cer * n £. on the men. Gen. Banks, too. seemed
übiquitous, riding wherever the men wavered, and
by personal example Inciting -them to renewed
deeds ol daring and reckless valor. Cols. Clark
and Wilson, with other members of the staff, saber
In hand, mixed with the soldiers on foot and horsfe
back, and cheqred and encouraged them to continue
tbe unequal fight.
But human beings could not longer withstand
such fierce and overpowering onslaughts as our
men were bearing np against, and onr line finally
gave way at all points, and the men fell hack fierce
ly contesting the ground they yielded. Unfortu
nately a sad mishap befell them at this time. The
large and cumbersome wagon train blocked op the
way; tbe frightened horses dashed through the in
fantry lines, entangled themselves with. the artil
lery. and created a momentary bat unfortunate
confusion. This gave the rebels, who were rapidly
pressing ns, possession of several pieces of artillery.
The enemy followed onr men step by step for
three andana’f miles. The 18th army corps had
been ordered to stop and form its line of battle—,
the retreating Union troops passed through this
line and formed in the rear. The rebels, thinking
they bad repulsed our whole army, dashed impetu
ously oh, aud thought tbe line, hut ball visible in
the woods before them, wps another feeble hut des
perate stand of a few men. •
Gen. Emory commanded this force, consisting of
two fall brigades, and he ordered tbe fire to be re
served until the rebels were within short range,
when from both infantry and the artillery posted
thickly along his line, a storm of Iron and lead waa
burled down npon the foe that literally mowed
them down. The rebels halted in amazement, but
still they .fought and bravely. Volley after volley
was discharged from each side full into the ranks
of their opponents, hut neither gave signs of yield
ing, and night charitably threw her mantle over tbe
ghastly scene, and enforced a cessation of hos
The two divisions nnderaommaod of Gen. A. J.
Smith, belonging to the 16th and ITth army corps,
had reached Pleasant Hill, and were there halted.
Gen Banks determined, to withdraw hie army to
that point, for the sake of the. advantageous posi
tion which be could there occupy, knowing that
the enemy would folioSv what they sopposed to be
a demoralized army. In accordance with this plan
of operations, all onr men were quietly withdrawn
from the enemy’s front, and the line orinarch taken
np for pleasant UUL This conjunction of bis forces
wss satisfactorily effected, and the resnlt confident
ly awaited. So well was the movement conducted
that although the first body started at 10 o’clock,
and the remainder were tot all underway until,
nearly day. the rebels had not tbe slightest soap!-*
cion of what was going on.
THE TUIHD DAT's WOHT A3TT> TICTOBT.
At 7 o'clock on Ssanrday ’'morning our forces
wercall at Pleasant bill, and the rebels were ad
vancing, cavalry in front, endeavoring to discover
our position. Col. O. P. Gooding, with hlsbrigade
of Lee's cavalry corps, was sent oat on tbe Shreve
port road, to,meet the enemy and draw him oh.
Bo had gone about a mile when he came upon the
rebel advance. Skirmishing immediately ensued,
and according to tbe plan, be slowly fell back. The
fight was very sharp between these cavalry bodies,
and Gooding lost nearly 40 men killed and wound
ed, inflicting, however, as mneh. damage as he re
ceived. Among his casualties are Capt, Becker and
Lieut. Hcll. of the 2d New York veteran cavalry.
Lient. Hall has since died of bis wounds. Colonel
Gooding made a narrow escape, a baU passing
through tbe crown ontof his hat, and grazing
the skin. The brigade behaved very gallantly, cov
ering Gem. Emory's front-nntil his line was formed.
The battle-field of Pleasant BUI isa large, open
field, which had once been cultivated, bat is now
overgrown with weeds and bushes. The silgntly
elevated center of the field, from which the name
Pleasant BUI Is taken, is nothing more than a long
mound, hardly worthy the name of hill, a semi
circular belt of timber runs around tno field on tbe
Shreveport side. Gen. Emory formed bis line of
battle on tbe side facing these woods, Gen. McHll
lon's brigade being posted on tbe right, Gen.
Dwight's on the center, and Col. Benedict's on tbe
left. Taylor’s battery, L, Ist Regulars, had four
gnus in the rear of the left wing, on the left of tbe
Shreveport road, and two on the road In the rear
of Gen. Dwight's line. Hibbard's Vermont bat
tery was on the right.
In the rear of Emery, and concealed- by tbe ris
ing ground were General Smith's tried troops,
formed in two lines of batUo fifty yards apart. All
his arlUlcry was in the front line, a piece, section
or battery being on the flank of each regiment, the
infantry lying between them . The 13th Corps
wm in reserve in tbe rear under General Came*on,
General Ransom baying been woonded tbe day bo
lore. General Smith was commander-in-chief of
the two lines back of tbe crest,‘while General
Mower was the immediate commander of the men.
The commander of the right brigade in General
Smith's first line was Col. Lynch; the left brigade
was' Col. Shawe. The second line also constated of
two brigades, the right under control of CoL —,
and the left commanded by Col. HUL Crawford's
Third Indiana battery was posted on the right of
the 69th Indiana infantry, and the Ninth Indiana
battery on the right of the lino of battle. The Mis
souri iron Sun battery, anrl others whoso names
and numbers we could not|ascertain, were also in
this section of the batUe.
1 he skirmishing was kept up with' considerable
vigor nnti’ about S o'clock in the afternoon, when
the rebels had completed their arrangements
for attack. At about tins hour, Gen. Emory's skir
mish line was driven In on tbe right, by the rebels,
who appeared In large force, coming through the
timber above mentioned. They soon reached the
open ground, and moved on to tbe attack in three
lines of battle. Our batteries and infantry opened
with terrible effect, doing great slaughter with
grape and canister, while the enemy's artillery,
being in the woods and in bad position, did scarce*
lyanydamaie. ‘ *
Col. Benedict's brigade on the left -was first en
caged, soon followed by Dwight's and McMillan's,
The fighting was terrific—old soldiers say it never
was surpassed for desperation. Notwithstanding
tbe tcmblo havoc in their ranks, tbe enemy press
ed fiercely on, 4 slowly poshing the men of tbo 19th
Corps back np tbe hill, but not breaking their line
of battle. A sudden and bold dash of the rebels on
tbe right gave them possession of Taylor's battery
and forced oar line still I Tartber back.
Now came the grand coup de main. . The 19th,
on arriving at the top of the hill, sudden!y filed off
over the bill nndpaased through the lines of Gen.
Smith. We mnst here mention that’the rebels
were now in but two lines of battle, the first hav
ing been almost annihilated by Gen. Emory, what
remained being forced back into the second line.
Bnt these two lines came on exultant and sore of
The first passed over the knoll, and all heedless
ofthe long lino of cannons and crouching forms of
as brave men as ever trod mother earth, pressed
on. The second line appeared on the crest, and
the death signal was sounded. Words cannot de
scribe the awful effect of this discharge.- Seven
thousand rifles, and several iaßeriea of artillery,
each gun loaded to the muzzle with grape and can
istcr, were fired simultaneously, and the whole
center of the rebel line was crashed down as a
field of ripe wheat Uuongh which a tornado had
passed. It is estimated that one thousand 'men
were harried into eternity or frightfully mangled
by this one discharge.
No time was given them to recover their good
order, bnt Gen. Smith ordered a charge, and bis
men dashed rapidly forward, the boys of tho 19th
joining In. The rebels -fought boldly and desper
ately back to the timber, on reaching which a largo
portion broke and fled, fhlly two. thousand throw
ing aside their arms. In this charge Taylor’s bat
tery was retaken, as were also two of the sons of
Nims’Battcry, tho Parrott gun taken from ns at
Carrion Crow last fall, and one or two others be
longing to tho rebels, ono of which was considera
bly shattered, besides TOO prisoners. A pursuit
and desultory light was kept up for three miles,
when our men returned to the field of battle.
And thus ended this fearful and bloody struggle
for ibe control of Western Louisiana.
On the following day the commanding General
thought it advisable to fail back to Grand Ecore,
wheio supplies .con reach him by water.
The New Orleans papers do not state the loss
sustained on either side. But from other sonrees
we learn that the Federal loss in the three days’
battles cannot he less than 6,000 men, viz., TOO
killed,2, 800 wounded and 2,C00 prisoners, besides the
wounded who fell into the hands of the enetny.
Four steamboat loads of wounded men came down
Red River on the 11th mat. Besides these casual
ties, the army lost twenty pieces of artillery and
from SCO to COO baggage wagons and their contents
of munitions, clothing, &c.
The rebel loss in killed and wounded is fulir
equal to onrs, bnt in prisoners only 800 men: also
three or four pieces of cannon. The New Orleans
papers put the best tote on the disaster possible,
and cover up the blunder and dereliction of Banks
artfully; bnt murder wID out.

Another Account of the Battle.
We find the following account of the disastrous
battleof Pleasant Bill, fought under Gen. Banks,
on the 6th inet., in the Lacon (HI.) Gazette. It
is taken from a private letter written by Lieut. L.
J.Smith, of company£, 77thregiment, Illinois:
’ Grass Encore, April 11, 18& L
-On the Bth, we bad one of the most terrific strug
gles of the war. Our division was In the front and
without support, had to stand before a force of
£6,000 men, and of course we were crushed. Hand
to baud did the brave boys fight against ten times
their numbers, but it was. impossible to resist
their advance. • *
We marched from Natchitoches on the Cth Inst.
On the evening of the 7th wo reached a small vil
lage called Pleasant Bills, the road winding through
heavy pine timber While at Pleasant Bills, Gen.
Lee. who commands the cavalry of the expedition,
sent word back that he had had quite a skirmish,
with the enemy, losing thirty-five in killed and
wounded, and that he bad driven them eight miles,
where they made n stand, from which he was unable
to dislodge them 'with bis cavalry, and asking for
infantry. Gen. Ransom objected, say.ng, *» Remain
in camp here until Gen. Smith comes up, and then
more on them In force.’* It was evident to him
that the enemy would makes successful stand, hat
Gens. Banks and Franklin thought differently, end
ordered Col. Landram, who commanded tne4th
division of the 13th army corps, to take the s;
brigade of bis division, and stun nt 3 a. m., and as
sist Gen. Lee In dislodging tbe enemy.
At three o’clock Gen. Lee started, meeting the
enemy some eight miles from Pleasant Hil\root
ing him and fallowing him In line of battle for
about eight miles farther, skirmishing with him
the entire distance. liere we lost tho gallant and
brave Lieut. Col. Webb, of tbe »7th Illinois, who
was shot dead while leading hia men on the ene
ma’s rear guard. E ght miles from Pleasant Hill,
and four worn Mansfield, we came to a large plan
tation which was undulating and surrounded by
heavy timber, but on the further side the belt was
narrow- and opened into another plantation of
smaller size. Before we entered the first planta
tion the 2d brigade came nptotbe assistance of
the Ist, snd the l»th regiment was thrown forward
as skirmishers, and Nuns’ Massachusetts battery
Seeled on an eminence,-from which they shelled
ie opposite woods, something like a mile distant.
Tbe enemy soon left his position, although it was
very good one. . . , ■ , ,
We advanced the 4th division to tho timber on
the opposite side of the field, and sent back for the
Sd division, Gen. Cameron commanding, and for
the Chicago Mercantile battery, and let Indiana
battery, both under charge of Capt. White, Chief
of Artillery, detachment 13th Army Corps. Alter
gaining the opposite side of the field wa halted,
and the fatigued men of tbe 4th division lay down
to take some rest, as they had marched sixteen
miles, one half the time in llne-of-biitle, and
through the woods; Nitna’ battery waa then put
in position on the Shreveport road. Near the left
ol the road ad was qniet, skirmishing having
ceased, excepting once in awhile a shot cither
from rebel or -Federal. Here Gens. Franklin and
Banks came on the field. Gen. Stone, of Boil’s
Bluff notoriety, (who, by the way, is on General
Banks’staff), bad teen in front all the morning.
Gen. Lee was also present with bis cavalry. Gen.
Ransom came np and was ordered to advance hit
•line. Before doing so he told Gen. Banks It would
bring on an engagement, which he thought it pru~
dent to avoid at the time , fAtt oJrt**d withdrawing
the troops , going into camp , and sending for
Get>erai Smith, getting air our troops together
.and then advance on the enemy and whip him
soundly. But Franklin and Banka overruled him.
Ransom farmed his line. While this was taking
place a Lieutenant of the Sd Illinois cavalry came
to Gens. Stone and Lee and reported the enemy
massing bis force on onr right, and preparing-to
attack ns, which they soon did with a vengeance:
but just before the attack Gen. Banks ordered Gen.
Ransom to move bis force to tbe right. Gen. Ran
som then exclaimed, ” that beats us.” Too true I
for tbe move to the right was oniyafeint; bat
with tbe paoctiecd eyeofsn old soldier he delec
ted the movement, bat obeyed tbe order of his sa
ppier officer. Kims’ 2d Massachusetts Battery
was at the extreme front, (and here let mo say
there wasno better battery in the United States
service.) supported by the s3d Wisconsin regiment.
On the left of that regiment was a portion of Lee's
cavalry; on the right of Kims* Battery was the i/7th
Indiana, next the TUh and the 130 th Illinois, next
