MOSBY'S FAMOUS RAID. The Clue rr'.llix Captain Telia of n Thrilling Kpleoile of the AVnr. Colonel John. S. Mosby, lato of tlio Contedorato army, known ns a partisan rangor, but called a guorrllln all tho same, talked thus recently to a Now York Herald roportor: "In April, 1600, General J. E. 13. Stu art, tho dashing l'rlnco Rupert ol the. Confederacy, recommended that I bo promoted to tho rank of Major, which promptly rocolvod tho Indorsement of tho Socrotary of War, J. A. Seddon. In order to signalize my advancement I proposed to go on rather a big raid and bag a small army of Union cavalry. "About throo hundred cavalry woro at Dranosvlllo and I harassed them so much that thoy did not put their picket lino a halt mllo from camp. I wrote to Genoral Stuart and advised htm to send a small forco and capturo them, but ho was busy watching for Hooker to cross tho Rappahannock and could not sparo any troops. I rosolvod to scoop tho threo hundrod by surprising them. "On tho 31st of March I was mot at Rector's Cross Roads, In Loudon Coun ty, by slxty-nlno men, tho largest forco I had ever had under mo up lo that time Thoy wero a motloy crowd, though somewhat bettor dressed than l'alstall's famous regiment. Somo of them had been wounded and wero unable to do Infantry duty, and othors had absented themselves from their regiment without loavo. Hut I novcr investigated a man's military record when he fought under me any moro than I would his pedigree. "Tho men got prizes In tho way of booty captured, and somehow thoy seemed to llko to go on expeditions that woro hazardous and often richly re warded. "Getting near Dranesvllle I learned that tho onomy had broken camp and gone beyond Difficult Run, soveral miles below. Passing through Dranesvillo wo traveled to Mlskcl's farm, which was In tho forks of Gooso Creole, and tho I'oto mac river. Snow was on tho ground, although it was tho last day of March, and wo wero glad to rest and warm our selves. "Tho enemy wero campod about fif teen miles below and 1 did not think it posslblo that thoy could hear of my prcsenco before morning. Wo fed and picketed our horses Insido the barnyard, which was surrounded by a strong fence. Sentinols wero stationed as a guard over tho horsos and to arouso us in tho event of an alarm. Many of tho men went to bed in tho hayloft, while othors, including myself, lay down on tho floor in tho front room of tho dwolllng-houso lmforo a big log-llro. "There wero Union camps across tho river, but I had no fear of them that night. When I woke up next morning 0110 of my men came in and said the enemy wero making signals across tho river. I went to tho backyard to rocon nolter, when I saw ono of my men, Dick Muran, running across tho Hold waving his hat and calling out that tho 'Yan kees aro coming.' Not a third of our horses wero then bridled and saddled. 1 had buckled on my arms coming out of tho housu. As soon as I got to tho en closure whore our horses wero I saw tho enemy coming through a gato about two hundred yards oft. It was too lato to retroat, and so I ordered my men to get ready to fight. "Thoy saddled and mounted and ro sorved their flro. I did not havo timo to saddlo my liorso and had to lead the chargo on foot Captain Iflinl was so suro of bsggii.g us that ho ordered tho gates shut after passing through, in oraer to prevent us from escaping. An other squadron was in tho open field, moving in our rear. It looked bluo for mo, and tho many shining sabers Hash Ing in tho hands of tho cavalryman as thoy dashed toward us mado mo think that at last my atcrloo had arrived. Wo wero cooped up in tho angle of two streams and surrounded by over four times our number, with half of my men unpreparou lor a light. Captain Hint, by dividing his command, increased my chances of oscano at least fifty per cent. "In tho previous engagements I had learned the superiority of tho pistol over the sabor and ordered my men to uso theso weapons. When Captain Flint arrived within fifty yards of tho barn yard gato I advanced, pistol In hand, opened tho gato and ordered my men that had mounted tocharge. With wild yolls they dashed into tho ranks of tho Union cavalrymen, and I toll you It was a conflict that meant lifo or death to us all. When I got through tho gato Har ry Hatcher, a bravo and valiant soldier, dismounted and gave mo his horse. which I mounted quickly and rode into the fray. "Our tactics complotoly surprised Captain Flint, who evidently thought wo would remain on tho defensive. In a fow seconds tho Captain was shot aeaa, and before his men hardly know It wo wero among them with tho doath dealing revolver. Their swords were 110 moro efloctivo than woodou weapoiw and in a fow minutes thoy began to re treat pell-mell. When thoy reached tho closed gate thoy could not open It, and many perished before it was pushed down. "All my men performed wonders, but I wish to speak of a young artillery offi cer, Samuel F. Chapman, who quit the study of divinity, and, llko tho Round heads of old, went into battlo singing psalms. Ho was with mo to go on that special raid and when I saw tho Union soldiers closing In upon us that bright April morning I thought that young man would nover sing again, oxcept in a heavenly choir. Armed with two re volvers and a saber ho dashed into tho ranks of tho enemy like a wrathful Achilles, a pistol in each hand, and every timo ho fired, oithcr to tho right or left, a saddlo was emptied. "Ileforo tho enemy had got back to the gate, retreating, Sam had emptied both of his revolvers and was using his saber. He got right In front of mojjn deed in front of us all, and rising in his stirrups, swung his saber from loft to right, slaughtering in a wholesalo man nor. Tho rovrond Sam was not satis fied with tho cffeetlvo work ho did at the gate, but ho continued tho chase somo three miles. He got soparatcd in the woods from tho rest of us, and dash ed alono Into a squad of Vermont men, where he received a cut from a saber. How he escaped being killed Is a mira cle. Tho Vorraontcrs woro busy escap ing, I presumo, and did not take timo to kill Sam carefully and offcctually. "Ono of my mon, Huntor, saw him do ing battle alone, llko a hunted tiger in bis lair, and wont to his rescue. Now Hunter was a bravo soldier and ho dash ed up to rescue Sam with thosamo con fidence that a hundrod men would at tack one. It had the desired effect any way, for ho caused the squad to retreat, Jeaviuc Sam bleeding but alive. It was a scattered, wild chase for threo or four mllos, and dead mon lined tho roadside I mado Sam a Captain for his part in tht battlo. 'Wo Issued forth a forlorn hopo.thal morning, only wishing to cut our way through Captain Flint's ranks and oscapo, but the deadly revolver pitted against tho sabor mado victory smllo upon us." A TERRIBLE CASUALTY. Graphic Description of a Scene of Vntpenlc- Rble Denotation, Doctor Mowrls, surgeon of tho Ono Hundrod and Seventeenth Now Vorlt Regiment, wont with a brother-surgeon to inspect Fort Fisher on tho morning utter its surrender. They found many of tho Confederate wounded still Insido tho fort, together with many mutilated bodies. Two Federal regiments wore on guard, and somo of tho men woro ex plorlng curiously tho innermost recesses of tho place. Doctor Mowrls had passed through tho works, and was on tho outer slopo below tho level of tho undulating crest of tho fort, which externally Was an Immense mound of sand. My companions wero lingering above. surveying tho interior of tho work, when I was startled by a deep exploslvo sound, attended by sensible quaking of tho earth. At tho samo moment I fell, and on looking in tho direction of tho sound, I beheld an immense shaft of earth and rubbish, In outline not unliko a great waterspout rising as It wero to tho clouds. I clearly comprehended tho nature of tho occurrence, but boforo I could con sider my own situation, I found myself tho victim of the most intonso violence. I felt myself as an atom amidst tho crash of worlds. Then camo a distressing sense of suf focation, with a clear conviction that my immcdiato death was Inevitable I felt the grave rudely closing aroundmo, and realized tho horror of boing burled alio. Then followed tho pangs of sev ering earthly ties. then thcro was a temporary lull In thn descent of tho debris, instinctively 1 thrust out a hand, and telt tho air "extended hope." Again was I depressed and over whelmed by a fresh fall of sand and rulilusli. Another agony of suspense, another struggle for life, and I gained tho atmosphere. Thu danger had passed, and I wasntill alive. On realizing my deliverance I experienced tho most pleasurable, bliss' nil cmution of gratitude. That trans! emotion was tho highest state of happl ness I over attained. This feeling was succeeded by a moro sordid but not less natural impulse to coiiurm tho advantage I had so nrovi dentially gained. With ono shoulder fractured, tho arm hanging useless, I managed to extricate myiclf, and In an extremely bad plight 1 set out from tho fort with a singleness of purpose which. under circumstances less serious, might navo oeen amusing. I had gono somo ton rods, up to which time I had no thought of any person in tho world except myself and the mem bers of my household. Then I recovered my sonso of outer social relations, and. my next thought was my companions, tho doctor and tho corporal. To seek them was the noxt lmpulso, which I would havo obeyed Irrespective of peril, and I rapidly retraced my stops. On my right, as I approached tho spot, lay a quivering faco, all that was visi ble of a victim. AU tho bodies that had lain along tho descent liefoio tho oxplo slon had boon suddonly buried in a nanioless grave, while thu surface of that general graveyard was already dotted with tho mutilated memborsof scores of now victims. I soon found tho doctor his lower limbs both injured, and ono thigh badly fractured. Corporal King was nowhero to bo seen, but his body was found later in tho day. As I reached tho edge of tho parapot which overlooked tho Interior of tho fort, what a sight presented itself! Tho great amount of sand which had boen tho magazine had disappeared. A wldo exeat ation marked the spot whore It had stood. Tho Incredible, quantity of sand which oneo formed tho magazino now lay spread out over a vast area. It had been distributed so etenly, and had so softened the angles of tho various ob jects on which it had fallen, as to sug gest tho idea of a natural phenomenon. Tho victims of tho terrible casuallty moro than two hundred wero seen here and there, while over all tho black smoko had descended, rendering tho scono 0110 of unspeakable) desolation.
