JOHN WAGGONER'S RECRUIT.
If it's bracing, sit, here goes for a
brat l'n. guin to put it in print.
1 am a plain man in most respects,
but in one respect 1 am it little pe
miliar. In respect to keeping 60ber
under circumstances tliat niaks other
men drunk, I never met any man like
mo. The vidious mouarcb tho Tem
perance Society is opposed to, has
no terrors .for John Woconer. 1
presume you may have heard of that
tire eating Southern chap what was
his name) who used to boast in
Washington, before the war, that he
was born insensible to fear. He
miibt have been on awful booby, it he
wasn't an awful liar that is ray
opinion of him. Whether 1 was 'born
itiBensible' to fear of 'King Sicily,
the 6urpent,' 1 don't just remember.
At uuy rate it is a fact tUt liquor
can't luddle me a bit not a bit
Lint bless your heart,, that I never
thought a bragging matter, I've got
a ewill tub (Iowa at the farm that will
hold more liquor than any man that
I evei 6aw.
When I was in the army I was tee
totuler iu principle. Every man has
bis own bit of influence in this world,
ui:d I never wanted any coinrado of
mine to have it to say that he drank
because John Waggoner drank. 1
don't believe whisky makes a soldier
brave, even though it may make him
reckless. A good soldier takes c.ire
ot himselfand that's my experience
He doii't go to war to be killed, he
goes to light. Give tho enemy fits,
and look out for Number One all the
came, is my motto.
It 1 don't hate a mean man I am
not acquainted with my own tenti
inuiie. fciiiieo I was a boy, it has al
ways been u source of pleaaurd to
kick a Aiean man, morally or physic
ally, whenever the good Lord s'mt
me ft favorable opportunity. I've
ste'n many mean men in my day. 1
huvo seen a m;in who wa so mem
l hut he abused his wio MM she got
divorced Irom him, and then tried to
be his mistress. But in my humble
opinion I've been a soldier, air, and
aced my country's foes under tiro
there'll no meaner stylo ol'inan living
hun the fellow who tries to make
dirty money b dealing iu substitute.
1 lead the papers pretty carelully
,nd don't skip the advertisements. 1
uivo got a deal of good out of adver
iBeuienls ut different times. L'tt
eek 1 read an advertisement ot a
itibstitiue br.ker, named Juigga. in
he city. I'lenty others like him
there wi re, to bo sure; hut my way
ot dealing with a swindler ia to pick
out one of thu swindlers and to give
lini a bundling. I picked out Migga
and went to town to see what the
prospect might oo for handling him
The first tnnn I met was Joe
Smith, and I told him I'd got a little
ob to do.
'Ah, right ' says he. 'What is it,
lohn?' 'Do you know a man named
Mig&J" 'Substitute swindler ' says
. . . y-e f I I
i6. 'O E Miggs." uuesa i aoj
He's been trying to get me to Bel!
myself to him cheap.' 'For a snb?
Yes.' 'Yon don't say I Uome, this is
jubt the talk! Find ine Miggs, will
you? 1 in a SuDstituter -i on -
ain't going to let any ol these dirty
sharks gobble you up and make a
hundred .dollars oat oi you, are you,
John!' He wo.it make more than
that out oi me anybow. All I ask
nl vnn i to set him on.! lell hnn to
makeiiio drunk, and I'm his man. I
will be?' 'Oh, I sea, John, You're a
good eg,;. Here's my hand.'
Lie went strautiton, ana i wauea
nn the corner for hun. I rotty soon
ho came back with Miggs a lean
chao with sore tjyes and a terrible
voicd. He was aressea in a suiny
r -. i . . i
broadclotli snit, and wore a blue vest
with regulation buttons. lur out
hinul I con d have knocked him
ihiwn for that.

Biftndinz on the corner. lie looked
at me, aa much as to say, ' Yoa're my
game, country 1' 40b, am IV thought
I; but 1 looked peacelul.
'Smith's a good fellow, ain't he!'
MiffP-s. 'Yes,' Baid I. 'he's
well enough, but he's too darned par
ticular for ma. He don't never drinl
with a feller, and if there's anything
1 like it ain't tea.' 'Ho I ho I he
equeakod out the sore eyed snbstitute;
'that's a good one. But, eli: I
let a have something. '
Broker had got his cue at once.
He wt3 going to get me drunk as
fast as possible. No doubt his time
was prectons. We drank. Broker
took a very light nip, I noticed. I
let him have his way that lime.
I warmed up with my liquor won
derful quick, yon understand; and
wheti we'went into another saloon to
drink again, I took Miggs' glass,
which he!; had drippled a little whis
ky into, and said;
'Look 'sre! That ain't tho way
you drihjrwith your friends, is it,
M iggs, old chap? Here, let me fill
her tor you.'
And I filled her up, and watched
Ji'iggs drick her, too. He tried to
laugh it off, but he made a wry faue
'What do you think about the war,
Mr. Waggoner?' - said Miggs, after
that. He was for getting on to bu
siness. 'War's a big thing on ice,'
said I, 'big thing ! (Jo me up and
take something.' I poured out for
Miggs, who began to eye me anxious
ly, To encourage him, I said:
'Miggs hicl old hoy. b'lleve I can
lick Jeff Davis,' or any other man;
b'lieve you and I could, anyhow.' Of
course you could,' said Migga, who
began to feel porceptibly butter. '1
lull yoa what, Waggoner, I've half a
notion to enlist myself.' 'Bully lor
you!' said I. 'Oomo up and drink.'
Miggs inaJe a wry faco again, as 1
poured out his gin, but he had to
drink it AlW which he grow de
cidedly uneasy on his legs.
'S'ay, Miggs hie igg.' said I, 'if
you'll 'list for Major General, I'll 'list
for a hie high private. What say?'
'Do it,' said Miggs, ai.d he hiccough
ed in earnest. 'Do it! Ilecrniting
office right cross the way here! Come
on.' 'Let's drink first,' said I. and
that one did the business. Miggs
was us drunk as a fool. I took him
over to the recruiting ottice, and en
listed him in Uncle Abraham's army
I can testily that there is one migh
ty mean man wearing tho army blue,
and tbt roan ia John Waggoner's
of the Repulse on Monday.
[Army Cor. Phil. Press, Feb. 11]
At 2 o'clock the oppo
sing lines were arawn up opposite
each other and in the woods, eo that
for the most part we were invisible
to the rebels aud they to us. About
this time skirmishers were sent out
from tfo left of the Filth Corps, with
otders to "fiud the rebels. They
wore not long in doing that, tor the
rebels were quite near, and in heavy
force. A brigade ot cavalry, consis
ting of the 4th, 8th aud 13;h L'enn
sylvania, dismounted except one
regiment was then ordered to take
the breastworks which the skirmish
ers had discovered in our front.
They advanced gallantly to the
charge across an open field, till they
came to a high post and rail fence,
which the mounted cavalry were an
able to pass. They remained here
awhile, striving to get the bars down,
the cava'ryraen hacking them with
their sabres, aud the dismounted
troops endeavoring to tear them to
pieces. All ins time tney were suo
j;ct to a terrible tire irom tne breast
works iu tiont. JJjui suot ana snoii
poured in upon them, and their po
sition was soon found untenable.
Ihey retreated Many dead and
wouuded were left behind. Again
thov were formed having this time
lett all the horses in the rear. Again
thov charged gallantly forward. They
were b oodilv asaiu reoulsocl, ana a
second time they fell back.
They were now ws&k m numoers,
man' were killed, more wouuded,
and some, unable to get away, had
been caught in the rebel lines ana re
mained aa captives. The third And
last attempt to storm these works was
made as bravely, as gallantly, as use
IbmIv as the first aud second. -On
the men rushed, back they were hurl
ed by tho volleys of musketry, and
here the endeavor to accomplish eo
difficult a feat with so mall a force
An advance of the 3 J division o
the 5th corp3 was now ordered to
drive the rebels from their obuoxious
breastworks. Under the eye of the
indomitable Warren the men sprang
gallautly forward. A short, sharp
and decisive fight drovo the rebels
nwav. Wa followed. Up hill and
down dale, through valley and marsh
auj over billtopi, we followed as they
fighting our ad-1
we went, too far
onward. For nearly four ratios the
rebels retreated, gradually getting
fltronucr in riiinihera lmt still oisinir
uway steadily befepe the dashing
o-- .......... r... . ... f,
charge of the 3J Division. Back
ward they went till our men reached
the tannery and lead woiks, which
are well known to be situatod close to
the South Side road.
Here the rebels stopped. Th-y
bad grown more powerful. Stuo
boruly the Fitth Corps veterans, see
ing the long sought object of their
desires almost within tueir clutches,
strove to push oo. The auimitnitioii
of many of the regiments was ex
hausted, and tho advance gnu, in lol
lowing, became glued in a swamp,
an 1 resisted a'l efforts to extricate it.
A 6wamp which was in front of the
robel earth works, with heavy guns
mounted, and lynx eyed cannoniers
were behind the swamp, which was
in itself impassable. There was no
chance of safety but in retroA'. Our
men paused; they paused and fought.
The rebels received more reinforce
ments. They massed them
Finally the left wing of thd 3 1 di
vision was flaokod an i driven back.
Alter this the division fell baclr in
disorder. Once started, there was
an overwhelming force of rebels in
trout. There was no refuge in the
rear, stve three miles back, for re
enforcements, which should have
been sent before these gullaut fellows
got so far away, were not on hand;
they were too late. Our men went
back rapidly, keeping pretty well
together, losing some, unavoidably
aa ihey went. I cannot pretend to
judge where the blame of this reverse
lies. It was plainly evident uorrever
thatjho reinforouuiotits from the 6th
corps to the 5th came too late to be
of any service in maintaining their
advanced position, and ouly helped
them tomaiutain the breastworks.
There were so many wounded iu
so short a time that the ambulance
on the field proved insufficient, and
the numbers of the poor fallow, efitf
and bleeding from horrid wjunds,
were carried from this front to the
fluid hospitals' upon stretchers, and
some were oven brought in upon
blaukets by their sympathizing com
rades. Nearly all tho wounded who
were able to walk were ordered to
march into their hoBpitaln, which in
the 6th corps lay from eight to twelve
miles from the front.

The Washington correspondent of

REBEL EXHAUSTION FICTIONS.
There is a general conviction that
tho rabel Government holds soma
proposition from the emperor of
V rauce under its consideration, and
has offered to us the alternative, and
perhaps tne preference of recognition
and alliance. At any rate a preven
tion of the war will be determined
upon. The movement of large num
bers ot troops from tho West to the
Ebt, and from the East to the South.
iudicate a very active campaign.
bherinan is being strengthened, while
Grant holds his own. The rebol
Government is also straininor ever
means to keep Lou's army Hp to its
present standard, and all stories of
the evacuation of Petersburg may ba
pot uown as so mucti idle action.
With the fall of Charleston, if tall it
docs, will come a renewal of negotia
tions ior peace, a new light is
thrown npon these points, however,
by the remark of General Sherman,
that while the rebels are abandoning
nseless seaport towns, they are gath
ering all available) forces in the field
for offense. I pi edict, notwithstand
ing the vainglorious boasting of the
Herald and the like, that the enemy
will be found with a very formidable
atmy in soutn Carolina, and another
