; 1,1 some embarrassiiient S'lid, it was well
known that he was only a soldier, and
that therefore no fitting speech could be
expected from him in reply; for whatever!
merit gentlemen choose to award him, or
whatever reputation, if any he had unde
servdy, the whole of it was due to tl
nay more, for the brilliancy of that service,
he was indebted to the training of the la
mented Ringgold and Ridgely, from whose

of Buena Vista.
ant Gederal under whoni he served- and to
the soldiers in the service he commanded;
To the general-in-chief his acknowledg
ments were especially due. He inspired
the whole army with valor and confidence
by his presence, not only at Buena Vista,
but from the opening of the war on the
Rio Grande. It is almost impossible for
you,'gentlemen, he said, to understand the
character ofthat man as a commander of
an army. There is a resolution, a firm
ness, a determination in manner, and in
his purposes, that go it great ways in lead
ing men to victory. It was never better
illustrated than on the field of Palo Alto.—
lie told Major Brown, when he left him

be back, if alive to come. The army
returned to Point Isabel, as you know.— j
On the 8th, they fought at Palo Alto, and ;
when ni»lit came on, they bivouacked in !
tlie open field; and amid the grass, with J
uot a tent over them, the General himself
wrapped in his blanket, and many, I can
assure you, in not a little doubt and doom.
^ .. .
Our little army did not feel sure then they
could whip three times their number, and
those the best troops in Mexico. We had
not tried our mettle, or measured weapon
with tli'em. Many an eye did not close
that night. Ringgold had been slain. A
bloody day was before them, aud many, if
the army went on, were sure to bite the j
dust. But nobo;ly knew or could jind out
what the Gen'l. intended to do. There he
Jay, wrapped in his blanket, and sleeping,
except when disturbed by officers asking
for orders. Some were anxious to ascer-|
tain his intentions. His only answer was, j
"Tell the men to sleep. Keep quiet.—
Sleep is the main thing necessary." Two j
or three officers were particularly anxious ;
He disclosed to none of them his intentions.
There was a prevailing opinion that it was
too perilous a march to go on. But Gen.
Taylor toward morning, disturbed by
someone demanding orders, replied "allow
the men to rest. It is time enough at
sunrise." Then turning over in his bjan- ;
ket, he said to an officer near: "My i
mind is made up, my mind is made up,"— ;
but nobody knew hoir his mind was made
up,—and yet they who knew him, knew
if his mind was made up, it was to no pur
pose to try to change it.
In the morning a council of war was
summoned and there were eleven officers
present, three only of whom advised ad
vance. Mind, I cast no censure upon
any one. A difference of opinion, under
such circumstances, might have been ex
pected. But they who knew the power
of the light arrillery, and had seen it play
that day, had confidence that it could
clear a way for the army back to fort
Brown. "Old Zach,"—for that is the
, iame we call him, replied after the con
i • i i i i -n j
sultat,on had , brokcn U P' wc wlU Avance
tn fifteen muiulcs~nud forward they
marched to Resaca de la Palma, the result
of which you all know. Old Zach kept
his word to Major Brown; but, alas, the
brave and lamented Major had received
his death wound. • •
So at Buena Vista the personal charac
ter of Ceti. 1 aylor had a like influence
on the army. When the War Department
deemed it neccssary, in order to form a
column to invade Mexico, n'a Vera Cruz,
to take his regulars from him, he was sure
j that Santa Anna would attack him. "I
; am the weak point," he often said, "and
; I know he will attack me." But he dt
j termined to defend his position, and, in
order the best way to defend it, to ad
vance. Gen. Scott has taken a hundred,
said he; I shall save a thousand. Gen.
Taylor kept well informed of the approach
of the enemy by Gen. Wool's scouts,
moved on to Saltillo, then on to Agua
Nueva. It was proposed atone time to
meet the enemy in advance of A»ua
Nueva, hut ascertaining by his engineers
that their position could be turned, he re
solved to fall back to Buena Vista as the
j enemy approached him, Buena Vista is a
! military position that any soldier's eye
would select for a defence. To no par
ticular person is the credit of its selection
due—for it has been said that even a wo
man picked it out as a place to repulse
an enemy. Various officers have had the
credit of the selection, but whatever par
ticular credit is due, is certainly due to
the commander-in-chief, who fought the
battle. The Mexicans themselves had
fought a battle there. Santa Anna knew
the ground so well that he ordered Gen.
| Minon to get into our rear. Minon did
! as ordered; but when he reached Buena
' Vista he found us in possession of it. The
22d of February, with 4500 men, mostly
raw troops, opposed to 20,000 of the ene
1 my, was certainly not an encouraging
j day. We did not feel quite so happy or
! so well, as over this bountiful table to-ni«ht.
We thought of home, and of families
and friends, and our chance of death was
made his will.
j much better, we thought, than of ever
! seeing them again. For several davs
I . ^ J
But he never shrank
fron^hü duty. "I may perish," was his
thought, "but I will perish in maintain
ing the honor of my country! I have to
run a terrible risk in assuming the res
ponsibility of making this onward «Weh,
but it is the only course that will save my
army. To stay in Monterey was to be
sacrificed by the overwhelming force of
the enemy. To save all, I must here
risk all!"
The battle was fought—you know the
result; but you can never know the influ
ence that the presence of Geii. Taylor
had upon the army. He alone, so it
seemed to me, could have inspired, by his
j presence, every soldier in the army, aq the
volunteers were inspired. The confidence
in him was complete. He had never sur
rendered. He has never been whipped;
and the iJea got abroad that he never
could be. When manœuvering my pie
j ces athwart the gullies—I cite this as an
example of that confidence— 1 saw clouds
j of dust about two miles from me. f was
; painfully anxious. I thought that Gen.
galloping up
through the dust into sight, screaming,
"Old Zack is coming!" Every soldier
gave involuntary utteranee to his feelings.
Old Zach came; and in fifteen minutes
the tide of battle turned. Four thousand
five huudred men repulsed twenty thou
; sand; and to the influence of that prc
i sence, under God, I think I am alive here
; to dine with you this day.
A Gentleman, —How often tîid you
discharge your pieces that day?
Col. Bragg —About 250 jounds to each
Another Gentleman. —How near was
the enemy to your pieces at any onetime?
Col. Brqgg. —Within fifty yards at one
time, when-we mowed them down.
Another. —Where was Gen. Taylor?
Col. Bragg. —Within forty yards.
Col. Bragg closed his remarks with
saying: "Understand me gentlemen, I an»
a soldier, and no politician. I know öen.
Taylor only as a soldier and a man. I
speak of him only as the commander
in-chief of the army iu Mexico. I have
nothing to do with his politics, or yours.
It is the duty of a soldier cheerfully to
