of Marshalltown. L. O. Kinne, who
has been published by his friends for
several offices from a Cabinet place
down, was recommended for Pension
Agent.” It will be seen that Mr. Mur

all modest—getting an endorsement
for his brother at Sioux City, a young
lawyer of very limited practice, for
District Attorney, and relative for
Marshal at Clinton. Brother Thomp

The Judge can take comfort in quoting
that familiar passage, “How everlast

-soldiers, who have been acting
with the Democracy, are fools t*' ex
pect any favors from that organization.
As a leading Democrat has expressed
it, “I don't see that the soldiers have
any claims on this party. It is em
phatically not a soldier's jiarty.” This
fact was very clearly shown in an elec
tion for Postmaster, at Ml. Gilead.
Ohio. There was an excumg contest,
and one of the candidates wa« a sol
dier of the wars, named J. S. Ruuyan.
He issued the following address to the
Democratic patrons of the Mt. Gilead
post office, as follows:
"Democrats! show by your voles in this
election that the Republican hue and cry' o*
democratic DISLOYALTY f* false. Show by
your vote* that the Democracy appreciates the
services, and delights to honor the soldier with
an sp precation that is shwtaxtial.
An opportunity is now presented. A soldier.
J. T. Runyan, is before you a* a candidate. A
soldier who fought in the Mexican war that re
sulted to the houor. glory' and wealth of our
country. A soldier who bears honorable scars
from Rebel bullets received in three loug year*
of honorable service ui the war for the Umou.
Democrats. give the tie to the charge of dis
loyalty! Republicans here have shown their
willingness to reward the soldier by TWENTY
Democracy oi Mt Gilead and vicinity do less?
Will they go back oo their professions of loyal
ty now. when the deserving and competent
soldier of two w ah.- asks their support?”
The old soldier stood around and
peddled his tickets. He was a compe
tent man. but when the votes were
counted, it does not Lake long to foot
up the column that stood for him
three votes! The Democratic party is
not a soldier's party—not a Union sol
dier's party, and men are tools, who
try to l*elieve that it is, in the romotesl
degree. The uniform most tavored by
Democratic feeling is not blue—it is
On our lirst page we place several

ISH4. One account is by a rebel officer,
who was a participant iu that bloody
affair; the second is by Major John F.
Lacey, of this city, who was at that
time an aid on Gen. Rice's staff, and in
which battle the General received his
death wound. In connection there
with also we publish an account of
the battle of Mark’s Mills, by Major A.
H. Hamilton, now of the Ottumwa
Courier . but then of the 36th lowa In
fantry. Altogether the account will
be of exceeding interest to many com
rades here, who were participants in
that bloody, stubborn affair, which cost
so many lives of American citizens, —
Union and Confederate.
The Confederate account lacks cor
rectness in several particulars. But
one charge caused the Union left to
fall back, which it did only after it
had been flanked, and cut to pieces by
a front and enfilading fire. Every
other assault was replied, though the
ranks were at times so close to each
other that men were killed with the
powder burning their faces, and
wounded falling together—Union and
Confederate crawling to the same stump
for protection from bullets and the
encroaching flood.
It was purely a battle of musketry.
We do not remember of more than a
half dozen shots being fired by the
artillery. The Confederate battery
was captured by the colored troops,
doing the work with a valor that could
not have been surpassed, and doing
it without firing a shot, with the bay
onet. When grape and eannister cut
away the ranks, the gaps were filled up
and the bloody work done.
Col. Mackey, of the 33d lowa, was
one of the bravest men in the battle.
Mounted ou his splendid charger, his
horse seemingly imbued with the cool
ness and bravery of his rider, he was
at every post, and went down with a
grevious woundof hisswordarm. His
regiment suffered more than one-fourth
of the whole loss, aggregating about
19) men killed and wounded out of
about 270 in line on the morning of the
battle. The regiment held the left,
and upon it was centered the heaviest
attack,—at one time three brigades in
line, —six men deep, but which were
repulsed, simply by square standing
up and fighting, and no quaver any
where iu the line save where rebel
bullets made frequent and sad gaps.
Without exception the officers were
cool, efficient and courageous. Capt.
Jessup, of Company D, now Deputy
Sheriff of this county, was one of the
most fearless. A man witti a musket
in bis hand, loadiug and firing, has
greatly the advantage of the officer
who only has his sword in hand, yet
equally exposed with the man with the
musket. The regimental officers—all
of them - were found wherethey should
have tieen found, doing their full duty
bravely, and three were wounded.
A partial extract from the diary of a
private soldier of the 33d regiment will
give a brief allowing of the latter [*art
of the march, includiog the battle
sketched in this number.
Reports made to Gen. Kirby Smith,
by the division otbeers of bis forces,
give the aggregate of his lueses at 2JBOO
—nearly all of whom were killed or
wounded. It was simply the butchery
of brave men attacking intrepidly
men equally as brave, but who refused
to run.
Gen. Rice was always to be seen
where the danger was the thickest
With his own eye he wanted to see,
and it was this exposure that gave him
his death wound.
Major Lacey was under fire from the
earliest hour to the dose, and the first
to bring the information to the gener
al commanding as to whom we had to
conD”vd with. He had proven bimaeif,
on several previous occasions, a man of
great courage, but just why be was not
hit in repeatedly traversing the line of
battle passes comprehension. When
it is known that young trees, a half a
foot or more in diameter, were literally
cut utf by bullets, the wonder becomes
greater that soy man on horseback
could have escaped injury. Yet, such
are the chances and fortunes of battle.
Thank God for the peace of our com
mon country! May war soon he taken
from the methods of man’s bn ality
for settling all quest ions! Hail to the
heroes who went down in that battle!
Hail tc the comrades yet here with us
maimed, and to all who stood by the
dag on that eventful day!

fellow in the whole sorry batch is this
blatant fellow from Virginia,bow sent
to Austria. He was first nominated for
Italy, but the Italian government pro
tested against bis coming, and he was
changed. The protest was on the ground
of Keiley’s fierce utterances against
Victor Emanel for his efforts in suc
cessfully bringing about the unification
of the Italian people and country, and
taking possession of Rome. In explain
ing them he took occasion to state, with
in the month of April, that the present
government of the United States was
only maintained over a section by “most
bloody oppression,” and that while it
was in power it was not by right so.
And much more to the same unrepent
ant rebel effect. In 18*16 he wrote and
published a book entitled “Vinculia.” It
is devoted to a vindication of the Slave
holders’ Rebellion and to abuse of the
North. Here is an extract:

Editor HtraUl. Your article ju to-day’s Issue
ij'jottii|£ Ueo. O. yoties is unfair. Mr. Joues la
nut tli** man to get under iui> man's shadow.
He has s*mnded the key note of alarm to all
tireeiibaekers who ar> unwilling to ne delivered
to either of the old parties, simply because the
bargain may have beeu made by some one to de
liver them. You need not lay the flattering
unction to your soul that the Greenback party
is ever to be absorbed by the two political par
ties as tiow organised. Nationals may have
beeu misled and deceived iu the past as to the
best policy of party work and organization, but
if the production of the best heart and con
science of the Greenback party, as reflected iu
their leading papers in all sections of the Union,
is any criterion, the time lias fully come when
political miscegenation will be tolerated no
lunger. Nationals will stand by the l. 8. Su
preme Court. The people must succeed with
that court supporting them. The Greenback
idea, that the material out of which money is
made need not merwariiy t*m*e** intrinsic ratio:
will exist and be the paramount principle of
some political parly in this country until that
principle becomes a part of the law. This doc
trine has never beeu and never can be success
fully assailed. This is the “irrepressible con
flict number two. " In its proper solution lies
the hope of American civilization. There are
thousands of meu in lowa and all over this
unior who are firm believers in this idea iid
your ordiuary respect for justice and fair play
should prevent a repetition of the remarks of
fered them in your article above referred to.
U*katoo*a. lowa. April **, M&5.
Mr. Kenwortliy will pardon us if we
cal! attention to the many inconstan
cies that mark the men who hart fol
lowed Gen. Weaver. Let us see: In
your State platforms you declared for
the red-hottest prohibition gospel. Did
you consistently follow that platform?
Did not Gen. Weaver, himself a pro
fessed prohibitionist of life-long stand
ing, go around and make all sorts of
trades with the whisky Democracy,and
did not the Greeubackers stand iu with
him, wanting his command, and fol
lowing his shadow ? Is not this a fact,
and don’t you know it? With all your
declarations as to th» finance system,
did you not as a party aid to your pow
er an element in politics the very op
posite of your belief and platform?
And did you not do this solely at the
beck of Weaver, that he might thereby
gain Democratic support in his con
gressional aspirations? Has not the
Green back party beeu used exclusively
as the little dog following the big Dem
ocratic wagon—with Weaver sitting in
the rear and jerking the little pet aloiu
by a string? You know these things
to be so, and yet you fret and ruffle up
your feathers in great shape because
the trutli has been told. Of course, we
address you as a representative of the
Greenback party. Personally you have
raised your voice against this sort of
traveling, and you put your opinions
down in black and white that the
world might see and read. But it is
your fragment of a party, now in wreck,
and becoming more so every day, that
we referred to. It may raise its head
a little this fall -Weaver and Weller
are under contract to keep it up, and
hold all the Greeubackers to Demo
cratic support,—but as an organization
it is among the things ttiat were. You
had letter jutefc up your “grip” and lie
ready to be delivered over with the rest
of the blind followers of Weaver, for
deliver you be will. He has got to, and
you cannot blame the I>eraocracy for
demanding all this from him. He is
one of them as he has told many lowa
Democrats, and acts to-day with them
as a Democrat, and is under agreement
to do so in Congress. We have no in
insults for Greenliackers or others.
Facts are facts, and they have made
them as we have stated them.

The great amount of fall plowing enable* him
to be up with it in the spring. Small grain looks
finely, especially the wheat. What a flue thing

The stock within a few uuy* past have been

It may seem surprising that there should be
any uncertaiuty about such sound corn a* wa*
raised in lowa last year growing, especially
that which was hung up in out-sheds before the
frost In the fall. Out of Hit grain* tested -that
was hung up in good order in au out-shed - a
little over SO per cent grew. But out of 40
grains tested of corn that was liiiug up iu an
out-shed and partially dried by placing a fire
under it. only three were found unsprouted.
The difficulty then appear* to be the condition
of seed In*fore hard freeziug weather sets in.
and if not |>mperly dry a greater |n-r cent will
not grow Would it not pay the fanners of
lowa to prepare some place for their seed corn
and have it well dried before coid weather. It
appear* that air drying is not always sufficient
