At tho outbreak, ot tho Mexican tvnr young Lojran volunteered) nnd Was chosen n Lieutenant in a company of tlie First Illinois Infantry. As a xoldlcr ho did good service, and was fr somo time Adjutant of hU regiment. There havo been rumors to tho effect that nt Iho outbreak of tho civil war Logan was not tho strongest kind of a Union man. It has been asserted, in deed, Hint ho nt liit thought of easting liln fortune with the South, nnd under took to raise volunteers for tho Confed erate army. Hut tho story has been de nounced ns nil Invention of his enemies, nnd It In rerialn that he was aiming the first to enlist for the war of lliu Union, Ho attended tho called se.'ulou of Con gress in July, 18(51, nnd Immediately afterward joined tho Itoops going to tho front. He was in tho first battle of Hull Uun, nnd among the last to leave tho Hell. Returning to his home Sep tember 1, ho nested in raising troops, and September , 13 the Thirty - ilrst regiment of Il linois Infantry was organized with Lo gan, commissioned ns Colonel. Tho llrst engagement In which ho and his command participated was the battle of llclmont, In Xm umber of tho samo year, when his ability as a commander and his dash and intrepidity foreshad owed tho fact that ho was to play a conspicuous part In the operations of tho army. Ho participated in tho movement!) nt Fort Henry, nnd was present nt tho battle, of Fort Donclson, receiving a severe wound, and did not rejoin his command until somo weeks hftcrwnrd, on the evening of tho last day of the battle of Shiloh. On March 3, 18G2, ho was made llrigadier-Gcneral, nnd participated in the siege of Corinth ns commander of the First brigade in General Jtidah's division of tho right wing of tho army, and for his valiant services was publicly thanked by Gen eral Sherman in his official report. When tile attempt to tako Vicksburg began In tho fall of 18G2 Gen eral Logan was in command of the First division of tho right wing of the Tliittecnth corps. On tho arrival of tho command at Memphis', December 31, 1862, tho Seventeenth army corps was organized, and on January 11, 18G3, General Xogan was assigned to tho Third division, in which position ho remained until the fall of Vicksburg, when ho was assigned to tho command of tho Fifteenth nrmy corps. In tho movements about Vicksburg from Feb ruary, 1803, until July 4, when Fem berton surrendered, General Logan with his command was actively en gaged, and it was through a number of brilliant movements by him that im portant advantages over tho enemy wcro gained and tho final result hast ened. Ho was selected by General Grant for consultation during tho in terview with General 1'emborton look ing to the terms of surrender, ami in consideration of his ndmlrabla services General Logan's command was ordered to tako tho lead in tho march into Vicksburg, July A, after which ho was givon the command of that post, which lie retained until placed in command of tho Fifteenth coqis, November 1 1, 18G3. During tho latter part of December nnd January ho organized an expedi tion Into northern Alabama, whero ho dismissed tho Confederate conscript officers, for which ho was officially com plimented. In tho Atlanta campaign General Logan's corps was a part of Mcl'lierson's command, which as Gen eral Sherman said, was tho snapper to tho whip with with 'i ho proposed to punish tho enemy. During tho move ment Logan was conspicuous at the ftont, nnd tho, forces under his imme diate command bore an important part in nil the actions nnd maneuvers that resulted finally in tho taking posses sion of Atlanta and tho surrounding strong holds of tho Confederate forces. At Dallas, as at Resaca, General Lo gan's command was in the front, nnd tho desperation with which tho men under him fought, showed their im plicit confidence In their commander to lead them to victory, cvon under tho most pcrluous circumstances. On July 22, 18G1, Logan, ns com mander of tho Fifteenth army corps, wasordeted in pursuit of the enemy south of Atlanta. In tho hard-fought battle that followed General Mcl'herson was killed, nnd General Logan (suc ceeded him In command of the Army of tho Tennes.-ec. The success of the bat tle was accorded to Logan by General Sherman's official report. Tho battlo of July 28, which followed, was another hotly-eontestcd fight, in which Logan's command was equally as conspicuous nnd successful. At Jonesboro, August 29, ho was again in advance, und, see ing the necessity of prompt action, without waiting for orders, ho pushed forward and Eaved the bridgo across Flint river, went Into a fortilied posi tion within a mile nnd n half of Jones born, fought a. sharp battle nnd won a decided victory. On January 20, 1805, tho campaign of thoCarolinas wus com menced, tho movement being for the purpose of encountering Johnston's army of the Fotomnc. This march was full of peril anil privations, In all of which General Logan was witli his men day and night, wading swamps and streams, and doing all that the men of Ids corps wero called on to suffer. Tho command moved on, driving tho enemy nt every point, passing through Colum bia, Gohlsboro aud Faycttevllle, until It reached ltaleigh, near which tho sur render of Johnston took place, and tho campaign was closed. Chicago Times.

Tho ltrnvo Act of n fiermlnRly KiTcmlnate Young Confederate Holdler. "Little Dandy," tho boys called him. Ho joined our company In Vicksburg just before tho siege, and none of us felt enough interest in him to make any inquiries. His extreme youth, ho wns about fifteen, would have excited our sympathy under other circumstances, but the war-worn veterans in tho trenches had no use for tho curled darlings of tho parlor, nnd Littlo Dandy's nppcaraneo was against him. The lad woro a gray uniform of a private, but it was of the very finest material, finer tlinn any thing worn by our Generals. Ills buttons had an un soldlerly glitter. Ho sported whilo handkerchiefs, carried a pocket mirror, nnd every morning ho combed nnd curled his golden locks until they looked llko a. gill's tresses. "Hello, Littlo Dandy,!" yelled tho soldiers whenever tho young fellow passed thetik To this rough salutation he always responded with n bow nnd a smile, but his soft ways did not win favor. When wo met him in town wo passed him by without notice, nnd in camp we let him alone. Little Dandy was proud after a fashion, too proud to notice tho many slights heaped upon him. Ho went through his routine duties without com plaint, lmt nothing could induce him to abandon his pocket mirror and his fancy toilets. The sicgo was well under way, and wo were no better acquainted with Lit tle Dandy than nt first. He shared our meals of moldy corn-bread and mulo meat without a murmur, nnd it must bo admitted that this somewhat raised him in our estimation. Hut wo still had to learn what a true heart beat behind those glittering buttons. An angle of tho enemy's works was dangerously closo to our intrench ments, nnd we had to keep our heads well sheltered. When wo raised a hat on tho muzzle of a musket it was inva riably riddled with bullets. Ono morn ing wo found our men being picked off by an unseen sharpshooter, nt tho rato of flro or six an hour. This nstonislicd us becauso wo wcro all keeping under rover, and tho men who wero killed ail occupied well protected positions. Wlicro was tho sharpshooter? This was tho uppermost question in every mind. Wo wcro not long in satisfying ourselves on tills point- Just outside tlie angle of tho Federal' works stood a giant oak, whoso leafy top nfforded an ndmirablo covert for an activo rifleman. A vigilant scrutiny convinced us that the man who was doing such deadly work in our ranks was concealed in this tree. To reach it ho must have mado his way there during the night, and ho would havo to remain there all day. But we could not stand it even ono day. His aim was so unerring that every timo his rillo cracked a Confederate bit tho dust. Wo tried a rattling dischargo of musk etry, but a moment later tho report of the rillo rang out and another of our comrades fell. It was evident that from our position it was almost impossiblo to hit the Fed eral rifleman. If wo succeeded in bringing him down it would bo somo lucky random 6hot. Possibly a man outsido tho works would bo nblo to draw a boad on our wary foeman, but ho would bo under tho guns of tho ene my, and thero would bo a thousand chances against him. "I'll kill him or die!" cried a shrill voice. "Good Godl It's Littlo Dandvl" shouted n dozen men. At tho risk of our lives wo peeped over our breastworks. Littlo Dandy had already mado his way to tho open spaco between tho works, and was edging around on tho rigltt of tho tree. The Federals saw -what ho wa3 tip to and fired a broad side When tho smoko cleared away and thoy saw tho boy with a flushed faco and streaming hair aiming his gun nt tho top of tho old oak, there was a tremendous cheer. It rolled along both lines, tho hoarso Federal shout mingling with tho wild "rebel yell." Dang! A man in blue came tumbling nnd and crashing through tho branches of the trees, and struck the earth with a dull thud. It was tho sharpshooter! Another cheer rent tho air, but this timo it carao from tho Confederates alone. A sheet of llamo blazed along tho Federal works, but when tho smoku lifted wo saw Littlo Dandy coming full tilt in our direction with a smile on his face. "Threo cheers for Littlo Dandy!" leaped from hundreds of throats as tho boy vaulted over tlie breastworks, and wo rushed upon him to hug him In our frenzy of admiration and joy. But Littlo Dandy sank down on a heap ot looso dirt, nnd then wo saw tho crim son stains on his breast. "I kept my promise," ho panted. And then ns our Colonel took his hand tho littlo chap looked Into his faco mul said: "I'm afraid I'vo mado a poor soldier. Sometimes I'vo bothered you, I know. But I always wanted to help you. l'lcaso remember that I was not very strong, and and I did the best I cyuld." His head fell over. Poor Littlo Dan dy was dead! Atlanta Constitution.

Tues day he was still in command. Wednes day a second amputation near tho shoulder was necessary, and General Bragg sont nn aldo to General Gladden to ask If ho would not bo relieved. "Glvo General Bragg my compli monts," ho said, "und say that General Gladden will only glvo up hit command to go Into his coflln," AgMnst all re monstrances, ho continued to sit In his ohalr receiving despatches and giving directions.
