DEATH AT FßANBJLEf. Cattîo iu Which Thirteen Confederate Centra s V.'ere Shot. TC. Iv Robert, in Philadelphia Tlmes.J It wat the 30th of November, 18GL t i o'clock in the r.fternoon tiie line of ittle wiis formed, Stewart oa the right, 'eath.im on the left, their right and Hanks, interlocked like Parthian Ft elds, comno-ing the center. Gen. k'îfiien 1). Jjee's corps was Jieid in re eve. Cleburne's position was in the . ter; 1rs division formed in three tic* li es and he at its head. Thus ringed, Hood's line was nearly two ii es ioi. r. .advancing, curved like a ' [ussu 1 man's cimetar with the blade to e foe. But let us follow Cleburne, -gîes were blowing, drums beating ..id bands playing. A courier dashed r> to Cleburne's presence and soon the .vord "Attention!" was given, then Forward, march!" and the column ussed over a hill and through the little hurt of woods. Soon they emerged to an open field and steadily they p issed on with "jumper cadence" to ward the rampart of blood and death. The Federal batteries began to open. First came solid shot booming over the earth and tearing and crashing through the ranks; then the shrieking shells How through the air on the wing3 of destruction, bursting under and above and around the men, and at every ex idosion unbinding more evils than ever flew from Pandora's box. Twilight was coining on. "Forward, men!" was re peated all along the line. A living sheet of fire was poured into their ranks. But the men pressed forward until the terrific roar ran from center to flank, from wing to wing. Night came and the two armie3 fought like two blind giants in despair. Cleburne's old war-cry rang out above tiie din of arms : "Follow me, boys !" Once again, and again, and again, seven times, Cleburne's division, and indeed all of Hood's army, charged the breast works. And once again, and* again, and again, seven times, were they re pulsed. Every time they formed and re Jormed under a most galling fire. At one time, just after dusk, Cleburne captured a portion of the works and turned the guns of a Federal battery on their former owners ; but »it was only for a few moments—a little silver rift iu the battle clouds that enveloped him in darkness. It was the hottest fire Cleburne had ever met. It was but one stream of blazing hell. Confederates were on one side of the breastworks and Fédérais on the other. Men fell fiat on their faces and fired from behind the bodies of their dead comrades. Dead soldiers filled 11 le intrenchments. Blood made the earth as slippery as an ice-pond. Thus the lire was kept up until after midnight, and gradually died out. But both armies held their own. The Confederates passed the night where they were, just outside the breastworks. The Fédérais, only a few feet off, held tlieir cover until near day break, when they quietly marched away and retreated back to Nashville. But when the morrow's sun began to light up the sky, the surviving sol diers looked out upon a sad battle-field. The dead were piled one on top of the other in awful heaps, and wounded seemed thicker than the uncounted stars. Horses, like men. had died game upon the defenses. Cleburne's body lay there on the top of the breastworks, ghastly in the sleep of death, pierced with forty-nine bullets, through and through. His mare had her forefeet on top of the works, dead in that position. Not far from where Cleburne lay was seen the dead body of Gen. Adams. His horse had his forefeet on one side of the works and his hindfeet on the other, dead. The General seemed to have been caught so that he was held to the horse's back, sitting bolt upright in his saddle, as if living, riddled and torn with balls. Gen. Stahl lay bv the both •om South Carolina, was lying with his sword, reaching across the breastwork, still grasped in his hand. He, too, was dead. Gen. Granberry, of Texas, and his horse was seen, horse and lider, right on top of the breastworks, dead. All dead! Four thousand five hundred soldiers all lying side by side in death ! Thirteen Confederate Generals were killed and wounded. Six brothers, members of a Mississippi regiment, were all dead. "This was the bloodiest pict ure in the book of time!" roadside and Ins horse bv his side, bo dead, and all his staff, ('ten.

An English paper gives examples of D'e subtleties of the law as it applies to overhanging trees or vines. An owner, aggrieved by the growth of branches G'oni his neighbor's tree extending over ois ground, is recommended to first in timité to the neighbor the existence of Lie nuisance before proceeding to the extremity of cutting off the branches. I »ut this .he can do at any time if Le but carefully avoid* cutting an atom on L:-* neighbor's side of the line.

As the winter of "^8" waned, the companies, one after another, set sail for the land of gold. Tlie^unday pre ceding they listened to farewell ser mons at the church. I recollect seeing a score or two of young Avgonautg thus preached to. They were admonished from the pulpit to behave temperately, virtuously, wisely and piously.How seriously they listened! Howufsaberly were their iiarrow-brimmed&sjtraight up-and-down little plug Iratsr&f ■ that period piled one on top of/tlf^ther in front of them ! How glistened ubeir hair with the village barber's liair oil! How pronounced the creak of their tight boots as they marched up the aisle ! How brilliant the hue of their neckties ! How patient! v and resignedly they listened to the sad discourse of the minister, knowing it would be the last they would hear for many months! How eager the glances they cast up to the church choir, where sat the girls they were to marry on tlieir return! How few returned! How few married the girl of that period's choice ! How little weighed the words of the minister, a year afterward, in the hurry-scurry of San Francisco life of '19 and '50 ! Wliat an innocent, unsophisticated, inexperienced lot were those forty-odd young Argonauts who satin those pews. Not one of them then could bake bis own bread, turn a flapjack, reseat his trousers or wash his shirt. Not one of them had dug even a posthole. All had a vague sort of impression that Califor nia was a nutshell of a country, and that they would see each other there frequently and eventually all return home at or about the same time. How little they realized that one was to go to the Northern and one to the Southern mines, and one to remain in San Fran cisco, and the three never to meet again ! What glittering gold mines existed in tlieir brains even during the preaching of that sermon. Holes where the gold was thrown out by the shovelful, from which an occasional bowlder or pebble was picked out and flung away. The young Argonaut—church being dismissed—took liis little sti if, sliiny plug and went home to the last Sunday's tea. And that Sunday night, on seeing her home from church, for the last time, he was allowed to sit up with lier almost The light glim old homestead The cold north ou g the leafless as long as lie pleased, mered long from the. front parlor window-, wind without roared am sycamores, and clashed the brand e 3 together. It was a sad, sad picture. The old sofa they sat upon would be sat upon by them no more for years. For years? Forever in many cases. To day, old and gray, gaunt and bent, somewhere in the gulches, "up North," somewhere hidden away in an obscure mining camp of the Tuolumne, Stanis laus or Mokalumne, up in Cariboo, or down in Arizona, still lie recollects that night as a dream. And she? Oh, she dried her eyes and married the ?t:iy-at home five years after. A g'rl can't wait forever. And, beside, bail re ports, after a time, reached home about him. He drank. He gambled. He found fair friends among the senoritas, and, worse than all, he made no fortune. —Prentice MulforoL The Daily News' lion Bluff, Ark., s] eclal says a man named Parker, living on Hurricane creek, in the centre of lire state, killed his daughter upon the an nouncement of her intention to marry a certain young man against his wishes.
