GENERI L N. B. FORREST.
A FEW ANECDOTES OF0 TiE GREAT CONFD
ERATE CAVALRY LEADER.
(Major General D. H. 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
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
"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
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.
