During the wur Father Sherman was a camp follower, going in when about 3 yours old und remaining with his father, General William T. Sherman, until the closo of tho struggle. At Black River, on the march from Atlan? ta to tho sea, u Confederate was sent under a Hug of truce to Sherman's head qaarters. Arriving, he found tho gener? al absent, but young Thomas was there and inclined to l>o communicative when taken upon the knee of tho Confederate. Drawn into conversation, he bluntly remarked, "Why, father can whip you fellows every time. " On being interro? gated as to how mid why ho oould whip them, the boy proceeded to give detail? ed information. "Father has S0,000 men and so many cannon, just ko many foot and so many horse soldiers. lie has just exactly bo many men, foot and horse, and so msiny cannon at another place." Tho boy did not neglect to state that the northern troops were well off for provisions and bow and where they > could get them when they wanted them. I General Sherman after tho Confeder? ate's departure learned of tho conver? sation. "Why," said he, "you young traitor! There is nothing for it but that yon must be court martialed, and you will probably be shot." The boy was not idiot, but he was told of the rub s und usagefl of armed forces when at war.?Chicago Inter Ocean, MKClIlNIOAl FLIGHT. Wonderful Performance of Protestor Langley'* Adodromt. Washington, May 18.?The first pub? lic statement regarding the flying ma? chine experiments conducted by Prof. Samuel P. Langley, for some months past, was mado to-day with the author? ity of Professor Langley. Professor Langley has always been very guarded about the ezporimenta and the account of bis latest attempts with tbe flying machine embodied in the following statement, prepared by Prof. Alex. Graham Bell, tbe well known Inventor, published with tbe sane.ion of Professor Langley, there? fore will bo of great interest to the 8cieDtiflo world generally: "Last Wednesday, May 6,1 witnessed a very remarkable experiment with Prof. Langley'rf aerodrome on the Po? tomac river. Indeed, it seemed to mo that tbe experiment was of such his? torical importance that it should be made public. I Ehould not feel at lib? erty to give an account of all tbo de? tails, but the main fac'.s I have Prof. Langloy'a consent for giving you and tsey ara as fallows: "The a?ndromo or flying machine, in question.w?8 of steel, driven by a Btoam engine I; resembled an enormous bird, soarin? In tbo air with extreme regu? larity in largeourvea, s keeping steadily upward in a spiral path, the spirals with a dlainuter of perhaps HO yards, until it roached a height of about 100 feet in the air t?t tho end of a courso of about half nallo. 'Then the steam gave out, the pro .pellers which bad moved it stODped and to my further surprise the whole, in etead of tumbling down, settled as slowly and gracefully as It is possible for . ny bird to do, touched ;ha water without any damage and was lmmedi ately picked out f..-,d ready to bo tried again. "A second trial was like tho first, fx cept that the machine went in a different direction, moving in one continuous gentlo aicsnt as it swung around in circles like a great soaring bird. At one time it seemed to be in danger, as Its course carried it ever a neighboring promontory, but apprehension was Im? mediately a'.lsyed, as it passed twenty flvo or thirty foot above tho tcp3 of the highest tretsthsro. "Ascending b ill further, its steam finally gave out again and It settled into tbe wateis of tbe river, not quite a quarter of a mile from tbe point at which it arose. No ono could have wit? nessed these experiments without be? ing convinced that tbo practicability of mechanical flight bad teen demon? strated. Alex Graham Bell" Sub committee Appointed.
