Maury, in Philadelphia Times.)f I first saw Forrest in April. 1862, a few miles outside the defenses of Corintb. Ho was1 already famous and was then in the very prime of his powers. In stature he was over six feet, j with's physical development of great strength and acotivity. His eyes were light gray, his cheek bones were high, his hair brown and straight, his complexion generally pallid. But those who have seen him in the heat of battlet can never forget the martial beauty and gran deour of the man. A bright hectic color then glowed in his cheeks and lis eyes gleamed I with the light of his fierce spirit, and I have heard men say, who were by him then, that nothing could snrpass or eradicate the impres sion of his aspect. A RU8E or WAR. The writer was commanding the Depart- I ment of East Tennessee at the time, and was° cautioned to be on the alert to intercept Strelght, who would pass out of Georgia $ through Tennessee and back to Kentucky. But scarcely had the cavalry of the department been set in motion toward its Southern bor dea, when Streight and his brigade, over 1200 men, came to Knoxville on their way as pri soners to Richmond. Forrest had followed b them like a bloodhound. He pressed them by day and by night, and finally brought Streight to a parley at a point about two days' march from Rome. By this time Forrest's command a had been diminished by the severity of his pursuti to aonot doa r lundred meo aud ,asd three cannon of his one battery had been able to keep up with the column. The conference between the two leaders occurred within aight at of a "out oftf" in the road, which enabled thega battery captain to keep his guns moving con-m Stinualy in eiglt. They would march along e the road, over the edge of the bill, turn into the "eot f,'' march black by it into the road again, and thus move along as a continuous column w of artillery. While negotiating with Streight, m Forrest stood with his back to the artillery, so as to afford the other a fall view of it. At last s Streight said : "In the name of God, how many t -gum have you got? There go fifteen I have w ounsted already." "Well, I reckon they are gi about all that have kept up," said Forrest. vi looking around carelessly. Impressed by the re -futility of father attempts to escape from a force so superior to his own, Streight finally agreed to surrender, stacked his arms, and by h'orrert's direction moved his men away from the line of stacks. Then the Confederate force, F which, leaving out the horsebolders, numbered a? only about three hundred men, were moved tt forward by Forrest and took possession of the at arms. Streight was a gallant fellow, and was di greatly mortified at having been outwitted, al and oharged Forrest with unfair dealing. ' O, eo no, colonel," said Forreet, laughing, "all's fair h In war, you know." Streaight and hie men were bi sent on to Richmond, whence their brave lea- g der effected for himself and for many of them hi one of the boldest and most succteful escape o P ever made from prison. ot This expedition was perhaps the greatest to military achievement of Forrest's life; it was or one which evoked in an eminent degree all of il his capacities for war, and of which he was fo most fond of relating the incidents. One if w them which he need to tell with much er-joy- ol meat illustrated the heroism and cleverness of lo a young Alabama girl, vRld is worthy of per petnaton. While pretssing close upon the re- i treating enemy an~i riding at the head of the na column, Forrest wee met by a little girl of s. sbout twelve years, who told him to stop, "For a jost a little way on is a bridge where the Yan- at kee soldiers are all ready to shoot at you if yoen in go there.'t Forrest halted and asked her if at there was no other way to get acroes that al river than by the bridge. "Yes," she said, t "two miles above is a ford where you can cross; cc and if you will take me up behind you I'll or slow you the way to it." Accordingly he rode ki up to a stump, from which the little girl to mounted behind him, and then guided him to B to where the road turned down to the ford. ef '"Now, you had better stop here and let some- gi body go to the turn of the road and see if there me soy so!dlers there," said she. Forrest and several others at the head of the column dis mounted and moved to where the road turned ·' Into full view from the river bank beyond the hi ford, when they were at once fired upon by a W volley from the enemy who had been sent to al defend the croseing. The little guide had, on- ill observed by any of them, kept along with For- tt rest on this reconnoissance, and what was his 01 surprise and alarm and amusement, when hhe 50 bullets began to whistle, to see the little thing e dart in front of him, spread out her little frockl in either hand, and call out to him: 'Get be- hi hind me, General! Get behind me !" He st snatched her up and bore her back to a safer hi place. of A WOMLAR8 R·rRIIMAND. at Another illustration of the pluck of our wo- vi men, which pleased Forrest greatly, was .f- hi forded by an old lady In North Georgia just al aftre the defea of ocr army at Kamionay ,U~ICI pe PsssS it his. Itbepssq wU erveo S ing the retreat, and took his stand upon every vantage ground and held it till the enemy would deploy in force and drive him of, when he would gallop on to seise and bold the next e ridge he might find defensible. Generally he would be among the last to retire, and was galloping on to overtake his command, when he was bailed by a brave, old matron, wbo called loudly to him, as he hastened by her house: "Stop. Why ! don't you stop and fight. you great, big, cowardly thing, you? Oh I if old Forrest was only here, he'd make you stand and fight!" " The State of :seissippi owes a heavy debt of gratitude to Forreat. for he caved her three different times from the enemy's ooooupation during the war, and wrought earnestly for her restoration and development after peace was proclaimed. In 18d63 General Sturgis, at the head of a column of oavalry and infantry, esti mated at 12.000 amen, moved down into Miesis sippi to ravage and occupy that floe region known as the prairie country, which lies along the Mobile and Ohio Railroad. The evils which would have followed the success of this enter prise are incalculable, whether estimated as to its effect npon the people of Mississippi alone, or as to the constquences to the cause of the Confederacy itself. Forrest, fortu ately, was within sound of the call for helo which went up from all parts of the State, and moved at once to encounter the enemy-his whole force numbering about 21000 horsemen. With thees he fell upon Strgsle' column on the Tisebom ingo creek, a few miles from Tupelo. Hie on slaught was so sudden and fierce and unex pected that the advance of Sturgis was thrown into confusion, was routed and driven back upon the main body which in tarn became dis ordered, fell back upon the trains, and finally broke up in absolute disorder and fled in a panic, without any semblance of organization, back to its base at Memphis--%here the com mander arrived, among the other fugitives, in very sorry plight. The pursuit had been on remitting fom one mumout ui ,.e dias asauk. It was Forrest's way to press a beaten enemy; he never gave time to rally or to rest. When he was on the war-path and had struck an ef feti ae blow, it was sure to be followed up until there was nothing more to strike. The upper counties of Mississppi were for days traversed by the stragglers from Sturgis' com mand, many of whom were captured by the Confederate soldiers, who happened to be at their homes on furlough from other commands, and by the old r.en and youths exempt from service because of age; and even by ti:at noble class of able-bodied Southern men who claimed exemption under the twenty negro bill, but who could sometimes do valiant service on a thoio'ghly tooted and panicked enemy. Some time elapsed before another expidition could be organized Io invade and lay waste the region of Misisrsippi, in which was Forrest's home, and over which he hovered with his protecting wings for four long years. A COMPANY WITH SEVEN DEAD CAPrAINS. General Smith with the cavalry column moved from Memphis, and marched s3etheast toward the appointed rendezvous at Meridian, without any check till he came near Okalona. Forrest was in that vicinity, and was ordered t , retire before the enemy until he should effect a junction with the main body of the Confederate cavalry under Stephen D. Lee, when their whole force would fall upon Smith. Disre garding these orders, Forrest advanced upon I the enemy and gave him battle in the open I country about Okalona. The ground was a gently undulating prairie, with occasional clumps of timber, and was altogether favors ble for the movement of large bodies of cav alry. Forrest's whole force numbered 2.000 horsemen-the enemy about for times that number. In the course of the action, Colonel I Bill Forrest, a younger brother of the General, was killed. He was a daring officer, of excel- I lent character, highly respected by the whole t command and dearly loved by his brother. On I hearing of his fall ti-e General rode forward to t where he lay, took him in his arms and kissed his dead face, then mounted his horse, ordered the charge to be sounded and led his body guard in person right into the enemy's ranks. I His onset broke up their line, and the defeat I soon became a rout,which ended only at Mem- e phis. "The body-guard," or "headquarters' com- . pany," of his command was made up of the most daring men in the army. On one occa sion, a year or 5a before the war ended, Forrest and I were seated on the portico of the head. rarters at Meridian, when this company pass- & ed by on its way to water. I remarke : "General, you have the finest company of men h and horses there I ever remember to have p seen." "Yes," he said, "it is a fine company, , and that is the eighth captain who has com manded it-all the other seven have been kill- B ed in battle." The fact was, he with his body guard often took part in the fight, and gener- P ally at the critical moment, as at Okalona, 0. when his opportune charge decided one of the iI moat desperate battles he ever fought. He ts lost eleven field officers in the fight, killed or It severely wounded. But he not only destroyed w the cavalry column which was to co-operate o with Sherman, but struck a panio into that general himself, who, on hearing of Forrest's b victory, hastily abandoned his enterprise and ran back to Vicksburg with all speed. And O thoe did Forrest again save Mississippi. h THE FORT PILLOW MASSACRE. It was after this, I think, that he captured Fort Pillow, and as so much has been said about "his ruthless butchery" of the garrison 0 there, I will give my recollection of his own ti statement to me about it. I said to him one " day : "I hear you shot some of your own men o0 at Fort Pillow ; how was that 1" 'Well," he ti said, "I'll tell you how that was. The boys st had promised their wives and sweethearts to bring themn a calico frook the frst chance tbhey got at a Yankee store, and while we were ilghting our way up ti, the bremstworks of Fort Pillow, I noticed the firing ceased all at once t on the left of toy line, and rode down that way 01 to see what was the matter, and there was the p :otler'sstore just broken open, and as I rode 11 tp one of the bys caume out with his arms rt full ofdry goods. I waoesead Idropped him with my pastol ; right behind him came an- 1 other, and ho a as a captain, and he, too, was loaded with plunder, and I shot him, too. They " all went on with the tighting afterr that." 'Well," I said "'how about your shooling the negroes after they had surrendered I' 'Ohl" s.id he, "there has been a great deal of ex aggeration and misrepresentation about that, and I'll tell you how that was. When we got into the fort the white flag was shown at once, and the negroes ran out down to the river; ; and although the flag was flying, they kept on tC turning back and shooting at my men, who m conesquently continued to fire into them t crowded on the brink of the river, and they killed a good many of them in spite of my ef forts and those of their offiers to stop them. But there was no deliberate intention nor effort to massacre the garrison as has been so ' generally reported by the Northern papers." w ONE OF FORRET'ST FAVORITES. One of Forrest's most efficient and favorite ti aseociatese was General Frank Armstrong- g himaelf a man of extraordinary ability, afd jc with the peculiar qualifications of a great oay- t Iry general. Recently be related to me an le illustration of Forreet's imperturbability under the most alarming oiruoomstances. They were i operating against General Stanley in Tennes- g see. Armatrong in advance had struck the i enemy's pickets and was pushing them rapidly before him. Forrest was riding with him. A a battery and a rear guard of a regiment had 0 stopped to water. So rapidly bad Armstrong tl been pressing the force before him that a gap d of one or two miles was presented to Stanley, ti who swooped down Upon this rearmost party t nd oocupied the road behind Armstrong's Di- a vision. A courier or staff ofoier st full speed ot bore the news of this disasetrous condition of I afairs toForrest, and the excited messnger d n arriving within bail, bawled out him tidinge fe hus: "General Forrest, Stealey has eaut into B -, - -r -, - , ry the road behind you; has captured the bat' sy tery and all of the rear guard, and is now on moving along the pike right behind you to at st tack you in rear." This was very startling. te Armstrong says he felt that all was up with as his whole division, and so did Forreat; but to sn his surprise and amnsement, without showing so the slightest disooncertmeor, he heard Forrest or shout out so that It was heard by most of the t. command: "Isbhe Damn him I That'sej at if where I've been tryinog to get him all day. id Faceabout,Armstrong, and go for him, end we'll give him bell I" Sore enough, the line bt was faced about, passed through the line of so horses, met the enemy, drove him from the no road, recaptured the battery and rear guard, or and secured about one hundred cavalry prison es ers. And to this day the whole of the men is present with him believe that Forrest bad laid ,i- a trap for the enemy into which he had fallen. g A CATHOLIC VIEW OF CERTALY DIPLO . MA"IIC P.RACTICES. o From "A Sectarian Diplomati E ervice" in the Catho ito World. e Our Federal Government, as a govern a meat, is absolutely forbiddetn by the Con t stitution to have anything whatever to do t with religion; but the State Department has been for years and as rtow conducted as if it were an agency for a religious sec Starian propaganda. The gentlemen whom St has sent to represent nas at foreign courts it have acted in numberless instances and s with few exceptions as if they were the emissaries of Protestant or infidel mission V ary societies rather than as the Ambassadors, a Ministers and charges d'affaires of a Gov ernment which professes no religion, but which nevertheless has among its citizens 8,000,000 Roman Catholics, more or less, least to respect. Many of these gentlemen I have seemed to believe that one of their principal duties, especially if accredited to a Catholic country, was to form intimate associations with conspirators and agita tors, to espouse their cause, and to till their dispatches to Mr. Seward, Mr. Fish, and Mr. Evarts with aboasurd but pernicious r m isrepresentations concerning the relations I of the Church towards education, civil freedom and material progress. " " " Too) p frequently these misrepresentatives of ours fall into the hands of tle agents of the secret e sects which are plotting all over the world for the destruction of the Church and the overthrow of Christian society, and receive I' from these sources the erroneous and per. nicious views of affairs which they trans mit to Washington * * * Let us take as an instance our misrepresentative at Rome, Mr. George P. Marsh, of Vermont. Mr. Marsh leaves us in no doubt whether or not he is in full sympathy with the worst - political elements in Italy, and inspired by a lively hatred of the Church. He deems it one of his most pressing duties to assail and calumniate the Pope; he seems never so happy as when he can give a false and malicious interpretation to the acts of the Papal See ; he appears never so miserable as when he finds himself disappointed in his fond anticipation of seeing the Italian c Government invade the Vatican, drive out at the Pope and finish up what is left of the of Church in Italy. In what Mr. Marsh is pleased to call his mind, the Church in Italy is a ravening wolf, wounded, sick, and in a trap, but still with life enough in her to make her dangerous and to render it 4: necessary that she should be knocked on the head as soon as possible. Whenever Mr. Marsh observes indications of a will ingness on the part of the Government to to let the wolf live a little longer, or even to at make terms with her, he scolds and laments at a fearful rate. He writes as if he were a member of the Extreme Left, and evi- to dently draws his inspiration fromthe most J advanced radical sources. " " * The Department of the Interior in its Indian Bureau, has repeatedly been guilty of gross violations of good faith and fair deal- R has been due, probably, to the direct pressure put upon it by the various sects, whose cupidity was excited by the hope of p reaping where Catholic priestsehad sown. But tie foreign agents of the State De partment often appear to have gone out of their way in mere wanoonness, to insult, irritate and injure Catholic in terests and feelings. Imagine the Col- - lector of the Port of New York writing official dispatches to the Secretary of the Treasury, informing him that, in the absence of anything better to do, he had been giving his mind to an investigation of Catholicim in this metropolis, and that he had arrived at the conclusion that 15 much of the pauperism of the city was due to the facts that the entire Catholic popula tion were in the habit of refusing to work on eight days of the year-days known in LI the superstitious jargon of the Papists as n, "days of obligation"-and that vast sums of money were exactedl by the priests from i' their iguorant and degraded dupes, and sent ovt r to Rome to suppor t in idle luxury the pampered Pope! It is probable that in Secretary Sherman would administer to the Collector a severe reprimand, aLd that this particular letter would not form part ol the annual Treasury re-pits. But this is precisely tl:e sort of rews with which our Minister to tIayti, Mr. Ebenezer Basset:t, regales Mr. Evarts, no much to the ap p"trent satisfaction of the latter that Mr. Basett again and again returns to the L Shabject nd dwells upon it with unction. EfILS OF GOSSII'. We have known a country society which ba withered away to nothing nuder Lte dry rot of Ge gossip only. Friendshabp, once as firm as Ge granite, dissolved to jelly, and then ran away Dr to water only, beoaeuse of this; love that pro- is mised a future as enduring and as stabl e .be truth, evaporated into morning mist that turn ed to a day's long tears, o ly because oftbis; a father and a son were set foot to foot with the fiery breath of an anger that would never cool again between them; and a husband and a young wife, each straining at the hated lash which in the beginning had been the promise of a God-blessed love, sat mournfully by the side of the grave where all their love and all their joy lay buried, and all becanause of this We have seen faith transformed to mean doubt, joy give place to grim despair, and charity take on itself tha features of black malevo lenue, all because of the fell words of scandal, and the magic mauttesrings of goessip. Great orimes work great wrongs, and tee deeper tra gedies of human life spring from the larger pa. bions; but woeful and most moorofal are the uncatalogued tragedies that lssue from gossip and detraction; moeet mournful the shipwreck often made of noble natures and lovely lives by the bitter winds and dead salt-water of slan der. So easy to say, yet so hard to disprove- throwing on the innocent all the bourden and J the strain of demonstrating their innocence, and punlahing them as guilty if unable to plukL out the stinge they see, and to silence words they never hear-gossip and slander are the deadliest and cruelest weapons man has ever f.oe for his brother's hsea--AU Me Year t WATCHES, JEWELRY, ETC.
