The Battle at Great Belhol.
THE WOUNDED AND DYING ON Tll£ FIELD.
The sights presented upon the field
w<re terrible to took upon, and calcula
ted to inspire among the soldiers an ex
aggerated opinion in regard to their lots.
"he ranks were not in any very great
utfusion, and each instance of niutila
tion among them could be seen clearly at
some distance in either direction along
the line.
One of Col. Duryea’s men was struck
in the left breast by a round shot from
one of the gun.*. The ball passed com
pletely through his body like a bolt of
lightning, leaving a hole through which
an arm could be easily thrust. For an
instant the poor fellow stood ns if paral
ysed, and then dropped dead, and was
I>ornc back from the position by his
companions.
At one place a soldier was seen set
ting, exposed in the midst o f the fire,
anil holding in his lap the head of a
comrade, who had been shot by a rifle
ball through the lung. The face of the
wounded man was ghastly and pule, and
rhe blood welled out from the wound,
and the death sweat stood upon his fore
head as be was breathing bis last and
giving a parting injunction to the brother
soldier who attempted to soothe him.—
A moment after he, too, was struck,and
a rush forward by the rear rank con
cealed both from sight.
One of the men now lying at the
hospital had a Minie ball p- ss through
his wrist, leaving the right band hang
ing loosely by one or two tendons and
pieces of skin. A comrade by him, with
considerable presence of mind, took a
knife from his pocket and completed the
amputation.
Mr. Wcaville, an artist of Harper's
Weekly, who was in the midst of the
tight, a moment after found tie member
laying in the dust, apparently unnoticed
by the brave soldiers, who, with un
flinching courage, still pressed on ia the
attack.
Orderly Sergea t Goodfellow, of Col.
Alien's Regiment, was mortally wound
ed in the breast. He handed his mus
ket to a comrade, and several nocked
around him. ‘Oh,’ said he, ‘I guess
I’ve got to go,’and he placed his hands
upon the wound. ‘Oh, don’t mind me,
hoys,’ ho continued; ‘go on with the
light; don’t stop for me 1 don’t stop for.
me 1’ and pressing away those who at
tempted to support him, he sank down
upon the ground. Just at that instant
bis Colonel passed, and looking up to
him be gasped: ‘Good bye, Colom 1 !'
and died. Col. Allen turned ghastly
white as he observed it- Hu bit his lips,
too much moved to speak, and rushed on
to avenge his death. Every oue in the
regiment loved the Sergeant, and his
death is keenly felt.
Dr. Hicks, Surgeon of the First Reg
iment, was completely bespattered with
brains, while standing near a man vvhol
was struck in the head by a cannonball
and instantly killed.
DEATH OF LIEUT. GREBES.
Lieut. Greble, of the Fourth Artillery,
regular sei»ice, to whom was given the
charge of the howitzer in the most ex
posed position, manned the gun with
wonderful coolness through all the ac
tion. Just at its close, fearing that the
guns would be taken in the retreat, he
spiked one standing near, then, turning
to his own, fired it upon the rebel bat
tery, probably intending immediately af
terward to spike that also. As ho fired
he turned to the limber for a spike, and
r.t the instant a cannon ball from the
throat of a rifled gun on the rebel ram
parts struck the le.'t side of his head,
earning away a large piece of the skull,
and scattering his brains against the side
•>f the limber box. Some brave soldiers
rushed to the spot—the retreat mean
time rapidly progressing—took up his
body, placed it upoj> the gnu carriage
ami dragged it from the field. It wa«
thus brought to Hampton. One of the
most popular offi -ers in Fort Monroe was I
Lieut. Greble, and his death is sadly
mourned. All day yesterday h’s body I
laid in state within ‘he church, near fire :
center of the fort, soldiers passing in and
out to look sorrowfully upon their com
rade folded in liis country’s flag—a wind- j
ing-she<>t of glory. He leaves a wife and ,
two small children.
INCIDENTS.
A musket in the hands of one our
soldiers was struck by a ball midway the
1 atrrl, which was jerked in a flash from 1
its stocks and l ent into the shape of a let
ter “S.” Another was struck just above
the lock, the barrel being entirely carried
away and leaving the trigger upon the
stock
A sword, hanging in an iron sheath
by the side of an officer, was struck, the
the sheath being splintered and the blade
bent nearly at right angles to the hilt.
The same ball which struck Captain
Kilpatrick, of the Fifth Regiment, in the
leg slightly wounding him, took an epau
lette from the lieutenant colonel’s shoul
der.
One of the Zouaves had the tassel
struck from his cap, and one of the Third
Regiment had a bail pass entirely through
his coat from side to side, just grazing
his breast as it passed.
An officer of the First Regiment had
a scath made across the top of bis fatigue
cap by a ba’l from the enemy.
Such are some of the incidents and
escapes of the engagement, which argue
well for the hotness and precision of the
firing, and the unflinching courage of
our soldiers. They are men who only
require an efficient commander in such
emergencies to prove our cause as victo
rious as it is just and patriotic.”

requested the facts of the case, I most cheer
fully comply with his request.
The subject of this remarkable, cure is my
son, and was attacked with salt rheum when
about a year and a half old. I applied from
time to time for aid to the most efficient phy
sicians in the eastern states, one of whom had
traveled in Europe ; but whilst he would at
times receive some temporarp relief, still the
disease remained, and would break out occa
sionally, with the most virulent type, until he
rrrived at the age of tourteen years, when my
eye providentially rested upon the advertise
ment of Dr. Weaver’s Canker and Salt Rheum
Syrup and Cerete. lat ouce procured one
bottle, which on trial so encouraged ine, that
I procured two more, together with the Cer
ate, and the result is that my son now is and j
has been effectually cured of that wretched
disease for the last three and a half years.

REV. W. E. JACOBS :
Newark, N. J., June 6, iB6O.
Messrs. Perry Davis A Son— Gantlemen : 1
Allow me, unsolicited, to send vou a word of :
commendation for your Pain Killer. I have
used it in my family these several years, and
fonnd it all it claims to be. For Rheumatism,
Coughs, Colds, Bures, Cholera tendencies and
difficulties, as well as diseases generally that
prevail in families, I regard the Pain Killer as
beyond all price, and as efficacious beyond
any medicine within my knowledge. We
keep it as our chief family medicine, and find
its use in ordinary cases worth more than any
doctor. The testimony of others among my
acquaintances and friends is equally favora
able. Many clergymen have spoken of it in
the highest terms as a family medicine. Mis
sionaries in repeated instances have said to me
in person and in their letters, that the Pain
Killer was by far the best medicine used in
heathen lands, and they use it for themselves
and families, and administer it to others
around them. Thus mnch lam inclinad to
say as an act of justice to yourselves; and as a
benefit to others. You are at liberty to use '
this testimonial, if of any sertice.
Rev. W. B. JACOBS,
Late Editor Christian Chronicle.

and after a while to incorporate them into I

the Greek, signifying “for the head,” is now ; i
coming popularized in connection with Jf- I
Spalding's great Headache remedy, but it w |
800n t be used in a more general way, and
word Cephalic will become as common Rl

common and is the precursor of a great variety 1
of diseases, among which are Apoplexy, Gout, 1
Rheumatism and all febrile diseases. In
nervons form it is sytrpathetic of disease of |
stomach constituting sick headache, of hepa<i»
disease constituting bilious headache, of worms,
constipation and other disorders of the bowels |
as well as venal and uterine affections. Disease
of the heart are very frequently attended with I
Headaches : Anaemia and plethora sre also affe
tions which frequently occasion headache. Idi,. ®

of the head. over one or both eyes; and som». :
times provoking vomiting : under this class
may also be named Nenralgia-
For the treatment of either class of Headache '■
the Cephalic Pills have been found a sure and
safe remedy, relieving the most acute pains in a
few minutes, and by its subtle power eradica

it is. "Y e see she’s nigh dead and gone with the
Sick Headache, and wants some more of fha'

I wish you would send more so that I can have

fail, and I recommend them in all cases of Head
ache.
Airs. Jones.—l shall send for a box directlv,
and shall tell all my suffering friends, for thi j
are a real blessing.
Twenty Milt,ions of Dollars saved.— ’’
Spalding has sold two millions of bottles of hs
celebrated .Prepared Glue and it is estimate!
that each bottle saves at least ten dollars worth
of broken furniture, thus making an aggtegab
of twenty millions of dollars reclaimed from ! -
tai loss by this valuable invention. Have -

poses to do the World still greater service by <' r -
ing all the aching heads with his Cephalic Dills,
and ifthey are as good as his Glue, Hesul
ashes will soon vanish away like snow in
July.

Do vou remember the throbbing temples, th
fevered brow, the loathing and disgust at th<
sight of food. How totally unfit you were foi

Cephalic Pills would have relieved you from a;; ‘
the sufferihg which you then experienced. For
this and other purposes you, should alwajs ’
