WEST RANDOLPH. VT. A floosler f'ttitiriaile Tell, of 111. C'ourt- .lilp in Dixie, l.autl. In February, lH(i4, my regiment, tlie Thirty-bixth Indiana, wan camped live miles south of Cleveland, the county Beat of Bradley CViunty, Tenti. 1 was detailed at brigade headquarters. Our corps was ordered to make a movement against Dal ton. (iu., thirty miles away. The wnooiM !xlniiiny to our brigade were ordered back to Cleveland. We went back there dm-intf the niyht of Wednesday, February it. On .Satur day, the 27lh, two bois of Co. K I'ete SlatI and John Soudors who were" dis posed to hunt up the pretty fe'irls, had been out a few days before, and had found a Mr. John C. l'oindexler, where there were three nice, black-eyed pirls Xancy Cornelia, Sarah Ann und Mar tha June. About twelve o'clock on the day men tioned Staff and Soudeitt came to me and told ine of their discovery, and wanted me to go with them out to Mr. Foindexter's. as there v. as to be a party there, and they had told Nancy, tlie oldest one of tlie three e;irN. that they would briujr her a suitor, or beau. I did not want to jro and lieiin to make excuses. J was messine; with u mail by the namo of Ford, and it was my day to cook, and J had on a pot of beans and could not eo. They went to Ford and asked him if lie would not cook the' beans, and he said In- would. 1 then told the boys that my hat was old and rreasy anil that, my blouse was worn at the elbows, and 1 would not be present able. My me -simile s hut and blouse were very rootl. ami they borrowed them for lite, anil 1 was left without ex cuse and had to n. The people w ho lived in tile wake of our army, as every one mu.-l know who e-itve il any atten tion, were very M'uree of provisions, particularlv eolVee. So.-tbout two o'clock. with a lot of su'ar anil eoll'ec, we start ed for tin house. As we did not, take the trouble to ejet ptoses, w e had to tfo across farms in or!er to avoid the pick ets. Mr. I'ointlexler lived three miles west of Cleveland, on the road leading from Cleveland to Harri-on. Westruek the road about a mile w o-l of Cleve land, and about four o'clock wn pot to our destination. Mr. l'oindextcr was a well-to-do farmer, and an uneompro misine; I'nion man. He had one son in the Fifth Tennessee, audit son-in-law in the Fourth Tonne-se Cavalry. When we pot there we found X:iney, a lileasiit! brunette, with black eves. auburn hair, twenty jears old, and about live feet hiph, in the kitchen bakinp pies. As we were all count ry of llotM'i lolks we tiitl not pive much attention to the woman who iu a few months lie came my w ife. 'J'hat nipht a few of the boys anil pirls of the noiphburhood came in, ami had a regular old fashioned country play. We played until we were all tired. The next day beinp Sunday the thre; of. us went wirh the pirls to church, the first time we had been" to a citizens' meetinp iu many months. About, three o'clock l pave the old pentienuiii two dollars, and wo started back to camp. When we pot back to where we left the wapon-train we found that it had left and pone back to the old camp at Blue Sprinps. By the time we reached the place where we hud left the wujou it w.-is sundown. We Ihnupiit we would L'o on to Blue Springs that nipht. and went to the picket-post on the road b'ndinp that way ami told tlie Lieutenant of the post that we belonped to the wapon-train. which he saitl had just passed, and that we wanted to po on to camp that nipht. He told us that we must pel passes. We turned back as thouph intendiup to return for the passes. As soon as we were out of sipht, Unowinp- we could not pet the passes, we concluded we would 'run'' the pickets and po on to camp. We struck across bet w een the posts, and pot out of the Hue on the rauroau. inn oilier two Hoys were ahead, and in pvttinp down tlie em bankment 1 slipped and fell wilhin fifty yards of the outpost picket, who cocked his pun ami ordered us to halt. I was about thirty yards behind. a-!(i tnouplil it Oest to halt. IJie other two boys could have potten away, but did not want to have nte, an.i so we were all taken ba.'k to the Lieutenant, w ho put us in the puard-house nut il the next day, when we were turned out and went on tocnum, w here we had to t lit.i: wood for seven days for our fun. It was seven miles from our ciimn tci where Mr. Poitidexter lived, but con tinued to po to see my pirl t w (i am! three times a week until the :d of Mav. when the army started on the (ieorpia campaign. Sometimes tlie ollieers would tie me up or make me stand extra duly when found absent. On the L'Sth of April, 1 Si; 1. . b,,, nrranped to be married. Kvery thinp was ready and thepuerts invited. About the time i and those 1 bud invited to pr with me wen; ready to slai-t (ieneral (irose had me arrested. Soldiers wort in the habit of marryinp and staying with the women until the army moved, when they would hear no more of the unprincipled wretches. He had been told by a family livinp near our camp, wno were well acquainted with Mr. Poindexter's family, that they were a good family, and supposinp that J would do as others had done, it was his duty to prevent the marriape. And sc. I was put under guard for the nipht, I and two or three faithful comrades, John Metiuire and the two comrade before mentioned, set to work to out general the (ieneral. How well we succeeded you will know when I tell you that we left camp the next nipht about dark, and trot to Mr. Poindexter's, who had been kept advised by a faith ful friend how thing w i-c proprcssing, We were married at eleven o'clock that nipht, and about one hundred per sons partook of a sumptuous meal. We went back to camp that nipht. I saw my wife a few minutes on Sunday nipht after we were married, and did not see her apaiu until April INJii. We started on the Vieorpia campaign on the ;td of May. At the end of that campaign my lime expired. I went to Indianapolis, was discharged, and pot a recommendation from (iovernor Mop ton settinp forth that 1 wanted to pc back to Tennessee to pet my w ife. I went to Liwiis .llle. Ivy., where they told me that they had positive orders from (ieneral Sherman not to allow any citizen to pass south. I went back home and wailed until May. 1 (-. when I thought I would try apai l. I could not Let through, so 1 wrote t i mv wife that she would have to come through alone. On the Mb of June. ImI.j, after not seeing each nt her for over eleven months, I mrt her at the house of a friend thirteen miles north of where I then lived, in lhmdolph County, lad., and wo have live 1 happy together ever since. .'. .Imi i.. iu . o.
