TH TOU oR' A NInNT.r It was during the earlier days of the army of the Potomac-if 1 mistake not, shortly after McClellan had sat down to the siege of, Yorktown-and before that army had re ceived that baptism of fire and blood, and had gained that terrible discipline in the sol dier's duty, which the campaign of the next three years brought it, that one of its infan try regiments openly mutinied. Of course, that regiment was not without its grievances; even the worst of soldiers (and these were by no means such) never undertook to revolt against discipline and to defy orders without oause for complaint. The regiment in ques tion, although less than six months underl k fL'orffwitn bid elbbheFe, tnesa men had patiently and faithfully done their part; they had marched through long uights over j muddy roads, when sleep overtook them in the ranks, while they wearily plodded on; I they had bivouaced on the cold ground. shelterless and without fire, and they had t unmurmingly laid aside the musket and t toiled in the trenches under soaking rains. i Yet all this time they had not received a < cent of pay, and clothing was silently and tardily furnished them, e Why, it was, I never exactly learned; but f those who were in the volunteer service can readily understand bow careless and incom e petebt offieers may cause such injustice as s this to brave and deserving men. For months k they had submitted to this cruel neglect. t while the other regiments of the brigade liad" been paid with comparative promptness, and the respectful representations they bad from time to time forwarded to their regimental commander had produced no results. At first load and oitter complaints were heard from them. then. as time passed and their 3 condition was not bettered, a silence suc ceeded, which the officers should have seen - was ominous of a desperate purpose. That purpose was reached without the knowledge of an officer or an orderly sergeant; except ing these, it had the assent of every man I present with the regiment. Mutiny was their determination, and the ring-leaders waited a few days, for an occasion to make tbeiraetion perfectly effectual. The occasion came; just the one that had been anticipated and desired. The regi meat was not, at the time, on duty in the trenches; its labo*s had entitled it to a rest, and it had been drawn buck to an open spot some distance from the line of the brigade. It lay in the prescribed form of infantry en campments-a canvas village of ten streets -each bounded by a row of tents on either side, and the paradeground directly in front. Dress parade had been held for several even ings, and eon that preceding the morning of the mutiny, the arms were left stacked in regimental line with a guard over them. This was probably in obedience to. general orders to the whole command, and intended as a precautioe to insure remdiness, in case of a sally by the enemy. After the retreat h_._lanseasbded that aenht, the order was arms were to be taken after the reveille toll call the following morning; and in the silence of the night to the men by the ringleaders, and the mutiny was ripe. The night passed, and with the gray of dawn the shriek and rattle of reveille sound" ed successively from the camps of a hundred regiments, and the drum corps of this one speedily aroused it from slumber. The offi cers, hardly awake, heard the confusion, the buzzing and humming caused by the calling of the names of Brown, Jones, and Robin son, and the rest by the orderlies; and then, the mingled command from ten throats - "Take-arms" A pause-a silence followed; then angry and vehement expostulations, but no rattle or olash, such as the taking of arms from the stack causes. The command was re peated and reiterated, with more ezpostela tie, and next the ommandant of each oom pany was visited by the vexed, soared face of his first sergeant, and the startling infor mation that the company would not take arms. Some of the offices received the in telligence with incredulity, some gave vent to their vexation, and unjustly upbraided the poor orderlies; but all fially put on their swords and repaired to the scene of mutiny, 'with substantially the same remark: "We'll me if they wont take arms for me." They did see; and quickly assured them salvee that the meet would not putforth a hard i toehis purticulr order. "At-ention ati-te captain of the fist coepmT5 ..$ sissy man promptly cOme to*ptlegeC "Take-s-srmsl. not a hand stirred. Righ t-face !" The command was in-, wauy obeyed. "Fronat !" The company came back to line with beautiful precision. "Take--ams!" But not a hand answered the words, though Captain M..---- vocite rated them to the full compass of his power Mbas. So in every company, the men promptly obeyed every order but this em; and that, nmta man obeyed. Not a word, not even a defiant look aoeompanied their disobedience; they simply stood like so many statues, and moved not a muscle in answer to the eou maid. The captains threatened, begged. and some swore; and neither their anger nor their humility had the least efect upon those seven hundred determined men. After half an hour of unrivalling effort, deeporing of accomplbshing anything themselves, the commandants repaired to the Colonel's tent, and astounded him with the news that his regiment was in open mutiny. He listened with angry imhpaience to the particulars they gave him, and tbef hastened to buckle ou his sword. "Come with me," he said. "By Heavens, I don't think they'll fail to obey when I give them the order," He was mistake; as ame so as were the captais had been before him. 'T'he line steed motioloies'behld the stecks when be rembedthe pL.rP e; and arderi ~he ofoiers to etb thber pWl be took his own in f. et easte.a Drawing his swored, bhe dMaeted iL the voioe that no man in the regiment had ever yet disregarded: "Take--ar~ .!" and stiq no man obeyed.

"Attesntion !" shoistted bp t J3 the regiment instantly came baok 1. l 'ne and position, ly Thereupon, the Colonel made an .earnest .f an impassioned harangue of fifteen uinutes, Swhile dozens of curious spectator lomin the d neighbeiing regiments stood about, viewing I- the extraordinary scene. He promised the t j men that he would give his persoungj atten i tion to their grievances until they Were re dressed; he represented to them that their i; mutiny would certainly be ineffeotual for e the purpose they soubht, and he begged them t to save the good name of the regimý t from 1 tthe disgrace with which.their diso~edience c - threatened it. Hardly doubting that his ad. i rdress would produce the desired eaect, he Each and all stood like a rock; acid not a single hand moved towards the muskets. t The mutiny was becoming serious. For ti more than an hour the entire regiment had ti stubbornly refused to resume their as, aid a the persuasion and authority as well of the commanding officer as of the line, had fallen d idly upon their ears. The excited Colonel a ordered: "Break ranks," which wasquietly d obeyed; and calling for his horse, he rode b off on a gallop to the brigade headquar- d ters. Our brigadier had come from the regular ai cavalry to accept his command in the vol- at unteers; and he was one of the besdtiacipli- di narians that West Point ever gave to the it army. He was much past the mid age, w and had seen arduous and distingui sier- s; vice in Mexico aud the West. *"e) a of man of medium height, or perhaps sime- ol thing above it. with hair dashed wi'h gray, f study whiskers and moustache, a massive sl forehead, and face with wrinkles of service, m and bushy eyebrows, overhanginging a pair ot of keen, incisive eyes. His presence was ra habitually stern, somewhat forbidding; the habitual expression of his face was one of de- af termination. Yet he had one of thb kindest vi of hearts, and his commands invariably fo learned, before he had done with them, that A their comforts and safety were at ill times Ila the objects of his anxious solicitude. He rta was far braver than generals are apt to be; gi when his troops went into battle he was al ways upon the line with them exposed to the ""t fire; and not Sheridan himself was more care- pp less of personal danger, more rekkless of of bullets, at Opequan and Cedar Creek, than tb was this man. His troops of course loved in him-when they knew him. to He listened to the story of thq Colonel ev with evident displeasure, which found ex- ev pressicn in a few words which were more forcible than elegant; but I venture to say th that no general officer in the armrs would ch have said less under the circumstances. He foi listened attentively to the details of the mu- ma tiny, as the Colonel gave them, and when sti the latter had finished, he said: TI "They won't take arms-ebh?" : "No. sir, they won't. Any order they'll it obey, but not that." in "elI, sir, are say ofyuy oficers in this "Not one, General, nor any of the order lies." was the eager reply. The General took one turn across his tent loor. "Return to your camp, sir." he said, "and assemble your officers in front of your tent. I'll be there in a few moments." The Colonel rode away, not very easy in mind at what was about to happen. The general ordered his horse and called in his aides. "Get y'ur horses immediately. Captain -, ride over to Captain - ; give him my compliments, and tell him to bring a sec tion of his artillery to the camp of the the Ontonagon Infantry - immediately! Lieutenant - , hasten to Col. -- and Col.- (commanding regiments in the brigade), and tell them, with my compli ments to march their commands, under arms, to the same place. You will accompany them there." A few moments later, the men of the re bellious regiment, gathered into knots in the company streets and about the parade, and conferring In whispers together, saw the general, followed by a single orderly, ride through the camp back to the Colonel's tent. s .me of them saw from a distance that the officers were formed in a single line in front of the tent, with the field officers on the right, the captains next, and the lieutenants on the left. The general dismounted, and taking a brief serrey of the faces before him turned to the Colonel. "Sir," he said. sternly, "do you 'refuse to perform duty ?" "No, sir," was the emphatic answer. He turned to the line, and paming down it, addressed the same question to each offi. cer, beginning with the lieutenant-colo nel, and ending with the last sabaltern. One and all unhesitatingly gave the same response to the Colonel. "Now, sir," said the general to the latter, "get your men in line. I'll end this out break in ten minutes." And then he added the same remark that the officers of the regiment had made, "We shall see if they will disobey me." The assembly was sounded; the comps nies formed into their streets, and were marched into their places in line behind the stacks, The faces of the men were grave and serious, but generally showed no abate ment cf purpose. That purpose was, as they afterward confessed, not to resume their arms, till the paymaster and quarter master should have actually visited them and given them their \ does of pay and clothing. But in many of these faces there was anxiety as well as determination visible, and all, officers and men, awaited the rene ral's procee.infs with such feelings as had never before been theirs. They had not long to wait. Two regi ments of the brgade marched upon the ground, and under the directien of the aides were formed in a long line, facing the mati neers, at shouldered arms, perhaps seventy yards distant. Captain -- with two pieces ofartilery, esme up before the formation was finished, and by similar direction, one piece was posted upon each flank of the line in such a manner as to enfilade, an entire wing of the mutineers. For half a minute after these ominous dispositions there was an awful silence. It was broken by the general in stern corn mend: '-Load!" The long line of muskets went to the ground with a shock, and the riag.g of ramn mers in the barrels, and the thumping lathe bore of the cannon, sent a thrill to the nerves of those who looked and listened. "Load with grape," was the eommand to the artillery. Then followed the orders: ",Randy-Aim!" The aspect of these ene when the general rode between the lines, peuaing In the cent s j and facing the mutineers, was such as might e- i have carried apprehensions to the stoutest l heart. At least one thousand bright mins - ket barrels were leveled, ready for the word " that would hurl their deadlv contents into so the breasts before them, while on either flank was a field piece charged with grape, ') the gqnrier standing, lanyard in haqd, only we aiting fhr the word to belch ,at destruc tion on the misguided men. t "Let the officers retire behind the brigade , line," the general commanded. i They did so. g "Men of the-- regiment," he said, in e stentorian tones, "listen to me! I shaH not i - stop now to inquire why you heve, disgraced i - yourselves and the comnnmand this morning c by disobedience to your officers. I shall t merely give you one order. If you obey, ii well; if not-you will have no other chance. o In that case, I shall move to the rear of the ti I brigade, and then-by the living God, I will blow everyone of you to destruction!" S ns ts It was done on the instant. Never did p1 the regiment execute that order in better' at time; the stacks were broken, and the mu- as tineers, frightened out of their folly, stood N with shouldered arms. at The whole command was brought to an or" to der; and the general, speaking with diffi cunlty from the emotions of the moment, ad- th dressed the regiment with such kindness as an brought tears to the eyes of many a tall sol- an dier. He briefly pointed out to them the co magnitade of their act as a military offence. ru and made them understand that mutiny in th an army can never result in anything but wi discredit. or worse, to those who undertake th it; and he reminded them that the cause in gi' which all were engaged was morst injured by ha saob acts of insubordination. Their clausea of complaint were just, he said, and if their ly' officers were in fault they should be punished the for it. "Full justice shall be done you, and be: speedily," he said; "but in future never let ag me hear from you in this way. There are i we other and better ways to correct evils in the ful ranks than this." sic He left the ground with the respect and me affeotion of every man there; bu$ his inter- th) view with the officers, which immediately Isid followed was of a very different character. sap Addressing himself to all, but more partico- eat larly to the colonel, he ghve them an exco- nal rlating lecture upon their carelessness and de' gross neglect of the interests of their men. wil "I should be glad to think." he concluded, dce "that none of you are troubled with incom- the petency as well as carelessnes. You are all ity of you to blame in this matter; nothing of this kind ever happens unless the officers are opl in fault. And I give you distinctly not to understand that if anything of this sort crio ever occurs here again. I'll court-martial oth every one of you." req He never had occasion to execute the ly threat. The regiment was paid up and hot clothed within a week; and from this time Mil forward every man and every officer of it po( made it his particular duty to efface the froi stigmas cast upon the regiment by this affair. the That they succeeded, the records of the ar- the dnous campaigns and bloody battle in which pet it bore a heroic part, ahd which are written arr in the history ot their country, will attest. reg JAMES ERANKLIE FITTa. be The material for the aboveketicI came to the writer from al friend, a gentlemen of the medical staff, who was present at the time of the mutiny, as assistant surgeon of one of the regiments. and it is undoubtedly true.

It'wasJohn Wesley, not Charles Sumner, who first spoke of slavery (the slave trade) as the "sum of all villainies." Franklin said many things that have passed into maxims. but nothing that is better known and remembered than-"He has paid dear, very dear, for his whistle." Washington made but few epigrammatic spesehes. Here is oce-"To be prepared for war is the surest way of preserving peace." Did you ever hear of old John Dickinson? Well, he wrote of Americans in 1778: "By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall:" Patrick Henry, as every schoolboy knows gave as: "Give me liberty, or give me death;" and, "If this be treason, make the most of it."

Upon the opposite side of the street, Sthe forewheel of the cage came in contact with a large rook with such force as to cause the stanchions which supported the roof to give way, thereby precipitating the whole a band into the awful pit below. For on instant the vast crowd was pas- hi lyzed .ith fear, but for a smoeent ely, und as then arose such a shriek as was never heard a before The awful groans of terror and us agony which arosefrom the poor victims who an were being torn and lacerated by the fright ful monsters below, were heartrending and sickening to a terrible degree. Every mo- bu ment some one of the band would extricate tho themselves from the debris and leap overthe an sides of the cage to the ground with a wild spring, and faint away upon striking the. earth, so great was their terror. But human nature could not stand and see men literally devoured before their eyes, for there were thi willing hearts and strong arms ready to ren- in der every assistance necessary to rescue ag the unfortunate victims of this awful calam- si ity. wb A hardware store which happened to stand fix opposite was invaded, by the request of the noble hearted proprietor. and pitc'hforks, th crowbars and long bars of iron, and every other available weapon, were brought into bi requisition.

Professor White made three herculean efforts to shake the monster off, but without avail, and gave orders to fire upon him. The contents of four Colt's navy revolvers were immediately poured into the caroasas of the ferocious animal, and he fell dead; and the brave little man, notwithatanding the fearful manner in which be was wound ed, never left the cage until every vestige of the dead was carefully gathered together on a sheets preparatory for burial.
