JJ The oldest locomotivo in Ameri ca was broken up in tho machine shop at Bangor, Maine, last week.

SEPTEMBER War EecoUeotlom. War recolleotionsl How interesting they are, now that the clash of contend ing arms is silenced. . Where is tho old soldier that does not love to live over again those days in the history of ou country, so indelibly marked by the rude hand of war? There are events engraved upon the tablets of enduriug memory, that are as fresh to day as though 'twere yesterday they occurred They will live, cherished gems among the jewels of memory's casket How dixtinctly we hear the thunder of "Rob inson's Napoleons," the continuous roar of musketry and the shrill cheering of the men ns they charge tho well remem bered "cedar thicket," at Murfrecsboro, now the heart thrills with ercitement as we listen to the deafening yells of Cle burne's men, as they "go for" "Old Roza's" last lino at Chickamauga, and as the eye again catches a sight of th stars and stripes rapidly disappearing through the woods on tho memorablo 22d of July, 18CI, mode historical by the " pill" tho hrave'Clusky received in hi sido and the fruitless attempt of th gallant Dawson to stop a minie with his teeth. I say, as these pass vividly before the mind's eye, an involuntary cheer arises to the lipe, but is brealhod only as a sigh hen we remember that those scenes are past and gone never to return, It is of this last named engagement that memory dwells with melancholy sadness, It was there that one of the most heroic spirits of tho"01d 15th"passcd from earth a companion and messmate from 'CI one who filled a brother's place ia my heart, and had stood besido me when in Ihe shock of battle; truly a "youtli to fame unknown," but cherished in the memory of those who admired tho gal lant soldier. His untimely demise left a void in many a comrade's breast and filled a mother's heart with anguish; I speak of the lamented Gus Flotron, than whom a braver man, a. more patriotic heart the regiment could not boast If the reader will follow me he will see what I saw upon that eventful day, will witness the fall of a true soldier. The personal prominence of the writer must be excused as an inseparable compan ion. The command (Hardee's corps) left their line of intrenchments, facing eastwardly, at two o'clock a.m., marched into Atlanta, filed to the left nnd took the road leading South Bates' division in front, Cleburne's next, and Cheat ham's, under command of Brigadier General George Maury, following. My company being on picket did not follow until near daylight, but by rapid march ing overtook the command by ten o clock. AH were speculating upon our destination; the general impression pre vailing, however, that at last we were giving up Atlanta without another strug. gle. A mile farther, an abrupt fije to the left instantly dispelled the erroneous impression, and then all were on the qui vine as to the object of the move. foryou must understand, kind reader, we were old soldiers then, could form a lino fight a battle, or make a move as cany with one commander as a dozen. An other mile, and the command was halted for a few moments' rest Again we were put in motion, with the caution to make oo noise. A wink is as good as a nod to a bund norse. inere was no soldier then but know whnt that caution meant We were going to surprise Mr. McPlier son, who had quietly taken up his posi tion in front of us tho duy before. Three miles farther the command was halted, deployed silently in the woods Bates on the right, Cleburne left; Cheatham s divisioij supporting every soldier knows that supporting means to be put in when the "rub" comes. The word came to us from General Hardee that we were to whip tha fight ; then came the preparation for work, knopsacks and baggage uuBlting, piled np with little hope of ever seeing it again, cartridge boxes brought to tho front or in a con venient position, a long swallow of water, and then to think. Reader, did you ever sen a soldier that could accu- ratelv describe his feelings at such a m:npnt; that moment that he awaits the comr.nnd "Forward?" How busy is memorv then: with what vividness father, mother, sisters, brothers, wife, little ones, friends, all pass before him, for he known not but the noxt hour will launch him into eternity. But, I am digressing. All being ready, we moved forward in line of battle through the woods. Another halt Boom I and then a ten pound solid shot came shrieking, tearing its way through the branches over our heads, announc ing that Cleburne was at them struck them "eend ways," as the immortal hero expressed it Forward again, out of the woods through a corn field, and anotlier halt in a field of broomsedge. Here comes a battery of guns and a flock of "blue birds " that those wild Arkansas boys of Cleburne's have " takes in out of the wet" At a sight of these it seemed as though the impatient spirit of my comrade, Flotron, was beyond restraint You have perhaps watched an impatient steed champing the bit and f awing the air, eazerly waiting the touch of the spur to lay " go." From this can he formed some conception of Gus. At the moment described above, even bow I recall every particular, live over again every emotion, see the Ere of his black eyes as be waits for the command to go, little dreaming that it was lo be his la;t battle. Orders came for a company of in ipk JJ skirmishers. "Captain Cannon, deploy your company as skirmishers. 'f We go nt double- quick.'deploy and move forward. Then the brigade follows, over the sage field, across a ravine, up to the woods, niovnd down by the battery buforo Cleburne, " took it in ;" and then the enemy's skirmishers are seen advancing to 'meet us, with their line following, to take their place in the intrenchmcut first drawn from. At a sight of tbera we give a yell and a shot, and away they go, firing at random. Wo follow with the brigade closo ujion us. At we mount tho works, wo receive their first volley moctly over our heads. With a yell, our blue friends had become familiar, we mako one of those charges for which Cheatham's division wro so famous. The enemy's line breaks; one, two at a time, then a dozen, and now oil show us their heels but a few squatting in the ditch, preferring captute to the risk of running the gauntlet to the woods. The present writer romembers doing his best for a Hug that was fast disappearing with a man in front of it, bat was suddenly stopped by a whizt phiz I around his ears, and a dozen muskets leveled at him 'tis useless to add be suddenly be came no larger than a friendly stump. A momentary check, and after them we go; then the prisoners begin to hustle to the rear. Another auglo in the breast works, another momentary check, Car ter's brigade join us, and at them we go again, driving them to the next angle. There the blue-coats are huddled, and tho minio balls fairly hail npon us; we on their sido of the road, they on ours. While loading and firing from an em brasure in the works, I espied Flotran rushing by toward the enemy. I called him, and seeing me, he came into the ditch beside me. I advanced a step, fired and stooped to reload, when my name was called. I turned, and what a sight met my gaze. Shall I ever forget it There lay my comrade weltering in his own blood, who, the moment before, regardless of danger, seemed to be rushing into tho very . jaws of death. I turned to him and raised his head and held a cup of water to his lips, which were parched and blackened. His only words were to carry him from the field and to write to a lady friend who had befriended him when previously wounded. With some assistance I carried him back to the field hospital; there I left him and returned to the command. Three years havo passed a century it seems but before me lays the gullanf Flotrau, as upon that never to be forgot ten 22 1 of July. Ho had fought as ouly tho brave fight, and died like them, with his face to the foo adding another to the long list of martyrs who so nobly sacri ficed themselves npon their country's altar, pouring out their heart's best blood in defense of the land of their adoption, to uphold principles they thought right, and thinking dare main tain, even to death. Thus was a bud of chivalry nipped by the frost of death one that bid fair to become a bright star itAlia galaxy of illustrious names. Sleep on, dear Gus; living, thou wort loved; dead, thou art not forgotten. Many sacred tears have fallen to thy memory from thoso who could appreciate the true soldier. W.
