Appearance of the Country Twenty Tears after the Memo rable Event. Philadelphia Times. The lapse of twenty years has left the fields and worded hills upon which the battle of Bull Run was fought much as they were when on that hot Sunday in July, 1861, the young armies of the peo ple for the first time joined in combat. At this spot twenty years ago the raw nucleus of the Grand Army of the Poto mac fell upon the equally undisciplined enemy and forced him through thick woods, across ravines, up hillsides, and into what promised to be utter route, but accident of war turned the tide of battle and under vigorous counter at tack the assailants fled dismayed to the banks of the Potomac. What the writer wishes to set downl in plain terms is the appearance of the battle field now and tºhe impressions that the surroundings make upon an admirer of those who fought. Bull Run is best reached from Manas sas village, a pretty place which shel ters snugly on level land a tew hundred people, who, being at a point on the Virginia Midland Railroad, thirty miles west of Washington, take the trade of the country for a considerable distance around. Riding north on the road to Sudley Springs one sees the clearly marked outlines of a fort in a corn field, and, passing farther, the eye is attract ed by the beautiful line of the Blue Ridge far away to the Northwest. At the end of a six-mile trot through a pleasant country of farms, the most in teresting part of the battle field, Henry Hill, is reached. TilE FI:ELD's KEY POINT. The Henry House stands upon Henry Hill, a flat bare crest, the field's key point whence camle the first great out burst of battle and across which for wards and backwards the contending lines surged from noon until the day was lost. The honus is a pleasant struc ture with marks of newness about it, and is made inviting by alawn in which there is a large elm and several small locust trees. The eye of the approach ing visitor does not rest upon these trees, however, delightful as they appear, for the objects of prominence are a little God's Acre grove in front of the house and a rude monument in the rear. "Coase I waz heah just arter de tight in'." said Shedrick, the darkey driver, as we climbed the hillside road to the house; "coase I wuz, en I seed moah dead utis stretched stiff in dat ar oat field ober dar den I eber hab seed afore nor sence. l)ar's Marse Henry, he kin tell ye." me Under the efin sat an elderly gentle man bending over what I afterwards saw were Latin text books. His soft hand, heartily extended, pointed as a sure index to its owner as one concerned with the windrows of learning rather than those long lines of fallen grain in the trai; of the reaper which at that moment was seen swinging slowly down a distant Fairfax hill. From the warmth of his welcome MIr. Hlenry, who is a professor in the Alexandria Academy, soon made his visitor feel in its fullness that which has leen so lmuch praised the hospitality of the old timne Virginian. A GI.AN;E iROM A IIILLTOP. "Be so kind as to standt under this this tree," lie said; "this point is the bIest fromn which to stuldy the battle field. General Sherman so regarded it when lie called here some time ago. I was sitting in the place where you saw me reading to-day when I observed the General approaching across the lield. H] came to the house, andt standing here, pointed out with wonderfuil acen racy the various positions hehl during the ibattle. Sir, that ridge beyond the Bull Run stream is in Fairfax coillty. Look to the east. iOn this side of Fair fax Ridge lay the Federal army on the night before the battle. The country there was partly cultivated thou as it is now, but, turning your eyes flrther to the north you see a forest extending to the streamo. Through that bforest, now of' larger growth, the Federals, who were to turn Beauregard's left, moved, cutting their road as they we'nt to Suid Icy Springs, which you soee in the dis tance there to the north. Then crossing Bulil Run they conie downl directly iuponi this point. There remain few evidences otf tlihat miovement. The oak tanld pine stalnds as it did then. Now, mark, sir! The ('ontiderate Colonel Evans, 'Shanks,' as they ca:lled him, faced Ty ler ijust down there at thile stone bridge, on the Warranton Pike. Is it clear to you ? Well, sir, Evans, suspecting something wrong, faced up stream, and with Colonels Bee and Barton, threw himself into that tield just beyond the valley. You see the field now: it is still clear. To make a long story short, I when the Federal attacking column, f clumsily handled, struck Evans; they 1 thought Beauregard's whole army was in their front. If they had pushed on they would have crushed Beauregard. No doubt of it. Evans, with a handful of men held them for an hour and a half, and when he was forced back, he retreated to hi, plateau, where the fiercest fighting 3as done. The Con federates ran past this house towards Gen. Jackson, who had just posted his brigade at that ridge a few hundred yards to the northeast of the house. Jackson's men were lying fiat on the t ground, but Jackson was on his horse. He sat t ere as still and steadfast as this monument. Now and then he waved his hand to his men, among whose a shells were falling and around whose t heads bullets were flying like bees- in harvest time. A soldier of that brigade was here a few years ago, and told me that he thought it too hot to stay. He was slipping back, when Jackson seeing him, raised hsl hand. The fellow drop- c yed back to his place." WIIEIIE JACKSON BECAME "STONEWALL." J As he talked MIr. Henry led his visitor t beyond the lawn into a field where grew i long grass, daisies, dandelions, dock weeds, blue thistle and thickly matted 1 blackberry briars. Slightly in advance and at the further end of the field was a t line of young pines which have sprung up since the battle, making the field narrower now than it was then. Beyond this growth of small pines stretches a wide belt of oak timber, then standing. Eating blackberries as we walked on, we came to a slight ridge near the woods. It needed no one to explain that this was where Jackson stood "like a stone I wall." From this spot,where his horse's I hoofs made their memorable mark, I could trace by the red road-bed leading I to Sudley Springs. one line of Federal I approach, and immediately below, in the little valley of Young's Branch, I I could see the Warrenton Pike that brought Union help from Stonebridge i across Bull Run. Far away in beautiful i undulations roll pleasant fields and sternly in the background still grow the I very oaks that once were bruised and shattered in the shock of battle. A'rTTLE-FIELD FANCIES. Standing where Jackson stood, it is easy to repeople this beautiful crest, and with slight effort fancy tills in the picture. Panting after a: hot run of a mile and a half, Bee's men and Bar ton's huddle paiiic-stricken at the edge of the woods. The rebels are routed. The hard-worked men of the North, driving constantly forward, cross War renton road, push up the hills and reach the plateau. Their batteries sweep the crest and send death-dealing bolts, hiss ing hot, into the woods. Bee is in sore extremity. His face is streaked with the smut of powder. His eyes are wild. His sword is in constant motion above his head. His voice is husky, for shouts of command long since gave place to whispers of entreaty. Over the field he comes in search of his badly smitten run aways. "General," he exclaimed reaching Jackson, "they are beating us back." '"Sir," replies Jackson, we will give them the bayonet." Again Bee's sword waves encouragement to his troops, in rain of bullets he runs forward, saying to some who are with him : "There is Jackson standing like a stone wall!" Instantly thereafter Bee sumites his breast, and, stumbling, falls back ward upon a clump of briars. To and fro across his body fly the bits: of lead, regiment meet regiment in the fierce charge and the thick of the fight is on. A dozen rocks in the midst of a tangle of pine bush, mark the spot where Bee died, and a few steps distant a similar moundl designates the place of Barton's fall, One conviction tforces itself upon the visitor who walks from point to point in this field-that the people never have done justice to the heroism of the Union soldiers who through no fault of their own lost the battle here. "May I ask what has become of the hall in your house ?" said General Sher mian to Mr. Henry. "Th1'e house had to be rebuilt," was the reply, "and it was remodeled." "I thought so," said Sherman with a grim smile. "I was in that hall, unt it got too hot for me." It is not very plcasanit for the gentle man who, with an aged sister, made deaf by the battle and so remaining now, occupies the Henry mansion to tell of the fighting in and around the house. In the graveyard grove is a tombstone with the inscription: JUDITH nENRIY. Killed near this spot by the explosion of shells in her dwelling during the battle on the 21st of July, 1861. When killed she was in her 85th year and confined I to her bed by infirmities of age Her husband, Dr. Isaac Heldrye was a sur geon in the United States Navy, on board the frigate Constellation. When the artillery began to rock the hill and shot came tearing through the house, Mrs. Henry's invalid son took his mother in hisarms and bore her across the field, down the hill, to a sheltering place. Two daughters of the house followed. When. the tide of battle momentarily rolled away to the right, the party re turned to the house, but scarcely had they reached the lawn when a fiercer storm than ever circled around. Mrs. Henry was shot in several places, one of the daughters was: made deaf for life, and the terrible shock hastened the son's death. Great locust trees that then stood around the lawn were broken off and swept down, and from their stumps the lesser locusts now standing l}ave grown. In a grove of these trees, on a grass-covered mound in the rear of the house, is a imomuinent of rough, red granite, whereupon are scratched the names of visiting veterans. The shaft is capped with shells, one of which was hurled by "Long Tom" from Fairfax Heights far across Bull Run. Though the monument was put up by Union sol diers, the bones of Five Confederates are buried beneath. Pushing aside some hollyhocks, now in flower around the mound, I was able to read the inscrip tion : In Memory of THLE PATRIOTS Who fell at BULL RUN, July 21, 1u61. DOWN AT TILE BRIDGE. With taut reins Shedrick let his i horses down the farm road leading from the plateau, and, crossing Young's Branch, we emerged upon the Warren ton pike. The Stone House known to history still stands at the intersection ef the Sudly Springs and Warrenton roads, and we drank from the dame well whence thirsty hundreds drew refresh ing draughts twenty years ago. From the Stone House along the pike to the stone bridge across Bull Run it is a long mile, the road being up hill and down and twice crossing the rivulet. "The Yankees retreated along this road after the tighting on the Henry farm, didn't they, Shedrick ?" "I's free to say, sir, dat dey kind o' made for ide bridge." "But didn't they run ?" "No, sah; when de rebels got de Union gemmon on the go back dey kind o' went along dis road toards de bridge." "But what's the difference between 'on the run' and 'on the go back." "Heap o' difference, sah, heap o' dif ference." This cute distinction appeared to tic kle Shedrick, who at the time of the bat tle, was a slave and who, in his respect for the North, could not be induced to admit that those who set him free were driven in wild flight across the bridge now before our very eyes. The bridge looks old but steadfast. A wall of stone is on either side and the road-bed on the bridge is of red clay, just as on the pike itself. The stream that passes under the b.idge is now narrow and slug gioh, but a rain storms sends the waters roaring dewn between the high walls of red rock and the dry undar growth of summer mn the run's race-track is frequently submerged. To the east is Fairfax county, filled upon this side with fields alid thick woods, in the depths of which the bones of men and horses are found to this day. T'o the west, .along the road that took us thither, stretch the undulating lands of Prince William county. Things are somewhat desolate at the bridge, but it is a novelty to sit on the stone buttress and read of war's deadly doings while from the rank grass and water below the bull-frog mocks the drum. WHEIR 'rHIE J'IPrTER TROUBLE BEGAN. A year after the iirst battle the second battle of Bull Run was fought upon the same ground. But in the second battle the positions of the opposing forces were reversed. Henry Hill and the adjoining Bald Hill are the points from which the operations during the second battle can best be studied. Far to the west stretch the Bull Run .mountains, and mn the dis tance the Ylue Ridge. Thoroughfare Gap, through which Jackson marched andin which Ricketts disputed Long street's passage, looks like a notch in a huge saw. Bones have been found with in the last few years in the Gap, but it behooves the searcher for such uncanny relies to beware lest he himseif he turned to bones, for in the Bull Run Mountains the rattlesnake lurks. There are slight traces of Jackson's entrenchments on Sthe highlands neat Groveton, and the un Sused railroad cut, in ,vhich there was Sfierce fighting, remains to-day as it was I in August, 1~62. r The Fitz John Porter case has cannused IburE y House and so recently, and notlong ago reszpassed several dsys i. preparing-maps for use in the The people of the vicinity are in the development of the ease,` takingo sides withe PObrterr who, 'g nassasmaput it, "ismerely the soap goat of alost baittle."

If the Providence Journal states the fact correctly, the barkeeper was about: to closeup. He had said'so several tines, and had put out all the lights butone. The old fixtures had shook the sawdust from their feet and reluctantly directed their footsteps homeward.k Only . a stranger remained, a dark, saddened. man, who sat demurely on a stool and. kept his thumbs revolving around each other like white mice. turning a wheel. When the coast was clear he steppe4 up to the bar and said softly: "May I. whisper a word in your eart it s aen may, mister, if you will be quick About it," replied the? drink-maker, with tis band on the lamp-screw. "I want you.to fill me a flask of your best whisky for family sickness," said the stranger, drawing out an anciet wallet with twenty fathoms of leather string wound around it-a well-worn wallet, that looked as if all the waves and billows of bad luck had beat upon it, and gone over it and through it, and flattened it,.and washed it out clean. The barman filled him up a pint, shoved down the cork until it squeaked, wiped the bottel dry and sat it upon the counter. "The autumnal air is getting a trifl tartish," soliloquized the stranger. "Would you have any objecti to say taking a little liver padder furot ineyJt tie f" He filled the tumbler qnue iull, took it as he did paregoric in the days of his infancy and then remarked: "Perhaps, on the whole, as the night has far waned, and my family are on their spiral springs and in their trundlesW you had better put my bottle away on the upper shelf, and when Phmebns Apol lo begins to canter his golden prancers along the avenues of the pu .ling east, I will then call for it, and you may then assess me the appropriate amount of du cats." The barkeeper sprang over the bar and began to kick him. "What!" he said sweetly, "you kick me after I have dranki IDon'tyou know better than that eKick me with both feet-I cannot fea you even then' Bey fore I took that glass, if youe.,d shook your afst at me you r wounetsl j1 wounded me--hurt me; lnt, now 14#orsa the physical punishment.

SosayI I have drunk to- night. :ood nigt, taverner! iHow much the parkling firmTanent looks like a far-off ity, lit up for a festal night! Farewell! I shall. see you later." ROUGH ON ALTHONA. A Breankfasrt Table correspondent sendst us the followlng good one. He says that Altoons was at one time about the bhrd est town along the Pennsylvania Central. One day a stranger, who was pretty well soaked with Texas whisky, went into a ticket office not far from Altoona, and said: "Give me a ticket." "Where to ?" "To h- g." "Twenty-one cents, sir." "What for." "To Altoona." "All right. Hand t'er out." To further prove Altoona's hardl repu tation our correspondent goes on to state that the fellow lost his .ticket h fore he was i the train long. When the conductor foun'l out that the irnukea i passenger had no ticket, he asked him where he wanted to go. The stranger still adhered to original principles and proved his continued desire to hask in the shades of Hades by saying again: '*Waut to go to hi-." "All right," said the conductor; "I will let yon off at Altoona."--Williaue port Breakfast Table.
