Jdfm A. Joyce, in Philadelphia Times. The Bayonet bo ;ood. "The most ridiculous weapon known to mortern warfare iR the bayouet," sairt Colonel Michael Gallaway, a gnest of the Southern. " Civilians aeem to Rup pose that the havonet plays an import ant part in all battlefi that the tirte is invariably turned by this romantic, humn-shouldered frbg-sticker. Now, aa a matter of fact, you coulrt bury in a ten acre lot all the mcn who have been killert with the bayonet rturing the past century. anrt the graves would not be crowded either. " The bayonet is supposed to trans form a regiment of musketeers into a Nfaeedonian phalanx for close fighting; but it doesn't. It supplies the place of neither the spear of Greece nor the Rhort sword of Uome. It is a hvbrid wenpon. fit only to prod camp loitcrers with. A reinment will eome aweeping up to a breastwork with tixed bayonets, but once inside the men turn the butts of their guna or go for their side arms. Thev realize that the bayonet is but a dress-parade weapon. In our battles the antagonists seldoni corae into actual contact. Battles are now fought with bullets itistead of bayonetR, aud the lat ter. always a clumsy affair of doubtful utility, has become an altogether worth less incumbrance. General Grant recommended that it be aholished in the United States service and the uix hooter gubstituted for close lighting ing. The recommeudatiou was a good one. While the bayonet is the most worthless of all weapons invented by man, the gix-shooter is the most deadly ehort-range tool ever deviBert. Give me a club three feet long and I'll whip any man who tries to bayonet nie; give me a six-shooter, and I'll make a bart hreak in any column of bayonetf."
