IF WE COULD MOVE.

Though so many years lmd flown, Since each other's hands we took, Haying farewells o'er and o'er. Shall we talk of earthly days, Speaking low, with bated breath, Of the awful mystery Of our human life- and death Bhall we wonder to recall, How our hearts were prone to fear How wo scarcely dared to hope.

A* SHALL nerer & for8et ^le fi&ht P5 ou Monday, May 4 1 8 6 3 n e a Fredericks burg. It was on the day following the cap u e o e heights. 8 e g wick's corps, on S u n a y a e noon, had left Fredericksburg and marched toward Chancellorsville, to effect a junction •with Hooker and the main army. That night,he struck the confederates in force at Salem church. The day had been clear and sunny. Without developing the position of the Confed erate batteries in his front, Uncle John drove into the woods, in an effort to carry everything before him. The fight lasted till long after 9 o'clock. Next morning Sedgwick drew back a little. He learned that the Confeder ates had swept around his left flank and recaptured Fredericksburg. It con tained the soldiers wounded the day before. Monday was still bright and sunny. The 6th corps lay upon the ridge along the Rappahannock above Fredericksburg. About an hour be fore sundown we could see that the Confederates in our front had been re inforced from Lee's main army. Stone •wall Jackson's coup at Chancellorsville bad enabled Lee to spare them. They "Were massing for a charge. They came DOWN UL'ON US FIVE LINES DEKP. The down upon us live lines deep. 26th New Jersey, of which I was ser geant-major, lav in a little depression along a ditch which had been dug by .some farmer to drain his laud. A Ver mont regiment was in the woods at our deft. A New York regiment. I think, was posted ou our right. A regular Wttery oocupied a slight elevation in our rear. As the Confederates ad Vancedl could hear the officer in charge 6t the battery giving his commands. "A second and a half," he shouted. "Blim blim!" roared the guns. "A second and a quarter," he cried. "Blim I blim!" was the response. "A full second," he roared. *"Blim! blim! blim!" answered the gun* "Three-quarters of I a seoond," came next "Blim blim! blim!" The officer was gauging his fuses by tile advance of the enemy, so that the g&ells might do the greatest execution. Suddenly in the roar of artillery and the screaming of the shells there was a .flash all along the lines. The Confed .©rates had reached our front they were •within forty yards of us. Half our men were on their feet and the other half on i&eir knees. Without order they kept an incessant fire. The Johnnies urere yelling at the top of their voices, end at least half of thom were swelling iiie refrain with their muskets. At this instant our Lieutenant Colonel, A brother of Gen. Martindale, who sat on his horse in the rear of the regi j&ent, shouted: 'Teu-t-i-o-n!" In an instant the regiment was upon jfra feet, in line under lire. The Colonel dgain /screamed: "Right about face!" The regiment ob^y the order like vet erans. Then came the most singular ooinuianil ever heard on a battlefield. ,• The Lieutenant Colonel roared: "Regi »ent, left half wheel!" The left, wing of the New York regi ment on the right had swung back, leaving a gap of about one hundred ieet between its left and our right, It Jiad done this to take advantage of the snatural depression of the field. Our ^Lieutenant Colonel with queer military prescience saw that by left half-wheel ing we could again cement the line. But when the regiment made the at tempt the result was ludicrous. Each jpan looked at his neighbor in the smoke £f the battle, and then all made a break jfom the line. Helter-skelter they •Went. The brave men among them Utood firm for a minute, and then began to swear and coolly walk after the fugi tives. I can see the Lieutenant of the United States battery yet, standing as ..-Straight as an arrow, with drawn sword. ,|Iis horses dashed away with several of ibis guns. They went at full gallop. I never saw such an expression of as ton -jfeliment upon any man's face. A second before the regiment had been acting ilike veterans. Now they were running •Over him like frightened deer. His •Oaths were terrific. He called the frightened men all the names in the «eatalogne of defamation. "Would you leave my guns?" he shouted "your only protection? Would Jfou let them have my pets I could hear the deep voice of Capt. iPeter H, Rogers of company re l|roaohfully crying: "Oh, what a shame! ^Vhy was 1 aver horn a Jersey men? Is fihis a footrace or a tight Come back! •4Jouie back Then waving, his sword, fijiis again screamed at the top of Ilia "Come back* ,come bockl0 There was J. Laeey Pier son, another captain, and Maj. Wii.iam W. Morris* and other officers doing their best to stem the current. The sharp "ping" of the bullets was heard every second. AH the guns of the battefy were drawn offbutoi e. Pierson, Rogers and oth ers grabbed the gun by the trunnions and tried to drag her from the field. Of course the air was thick with smoke. The rear of the regiment had moved very leisurely. The Johnnies had come through the gap, and we were all mixed up. As we began to drag the cannon off the Johnnies gralled the piece by the muzzle and tried to hold it. Then muskets weie clubbed and bayonets used. If all those engaged in the fight had deen personal enemies for years tire cursing and reviling could not have been more bitter. The wounded fell to the ground with oaths and impre cations upon their lips, and without a groan. Euongh of our men rallied to enable us to hold on to the gun. The Vermont regiment in the woods on the left hand stood firm, and the Johnnies who had swept through the gap were enfiladed. After the fight to secure the gun was over we discovered that she was loaded, that the landvard was hang ing from her breech and no one had thought to pull it during the fight. The regiment rallied behind a brush fence. George Drake of the color guard sprung over it and planted the colors at the side of the gun. He swore that Lee's men should have them if the regi ment did not protect them. Probably three hundred men lined themselves on the oolors in three min ute*, each man in his company, and each company in its order. They moved for. ward at the command of the Colonel and restored the main line, occupying the same ground which they had left. By this time the sun had gone down aud darkness was sweeping over the plain. It became intensely dark. The regi ment was lying down in expectation of another assault. 11 was a terribly trying time. The moans of the wounded filled the air. In the distance the Bheils had set the woods on fire. In the lurid light the Lieutenant-Colonel came down the line. He saw me standing in front of two companies. "What com|antes are the=s«,* he said, behind you?" I told him. "Whete are the officers?" he asked. "I don't know," was my reply. "Where are the Orderiy Sergeants?" "They're not here." "Hem!" he muttered. "Well, Ser geant-Major, take command of the divi sion, and don't resign it until you are relieved." One of the Captains appeared not long afterward. I told him I was in command, with orders not to yield the authority.tilljthe Lieutenant-Colonel re lieved me. Not long afterward the Lieutenant-Colonel did relieve me, and directed the Captain to thank me for keeping his company intact. A moment afterward the orderly of the second company appeared and took command in like manner. Five minutes afterward the Lieu ten ant-Colonel ordered me to look after the pickets. In the darkness I moved the pickets toward the enemy. Each man took his intervals. Stooping close to the ground aud looking up I could see their forms outlined against the sky. I could name each comrade by his out line. The ground was covered with the killed and wounded. Occasionally a wounded man tried to crawl toward out line. Everything, even the stumps, seemed to be moving. The wounded were packed around dead horses. They crawled there to escape the bullets, using each carcass as a shelter. While stooping to the earth and glancing sky ward I saw a form moving past our line. Beyond I could see the outline of Corporal Mason, a member of our regiment. I called him to me. We ac costed the stranger. He was a con federate picket. The lines were passing each other in the darkness. When asked what regiment he belonged to he replied: sr "UNLTJCKIEST VARMINT IN THE WORLD. "The 13th Mississippi." "Well, off with your traps," I said. W e're, Jersey men." "Good God!" he exclaimed hot in terror, but in astonishment. Away went his cowskin knapsack. He threw down his gun and shook off his accoutrements. "You'd better keep your haversack," I said "you'll want that." It was made of undressed cowskin. A pair of new shoes were tied to it, He expressed great anxiety concerning the shoes he was afraid that some Yank would confiscate them. At this moment we were called in. He was my prisoner. I told him to stick close to me and I would protect him. He said that he lived in Pontiae, Miss., and that he was a printer. Being a printer myself, this warmed me to ward him. When I reached the line the regiment was moving off in the dark ness. It moved back a mile or more, till it reached the earthworks near Bank's ford. They had been thrown up by Wilcox's and Jenkins' Confederate brigades some days before this. Below them a pontoon bridge was being laid, upon which we were to recross the Rap pahannock. Before we reached the earthworks the Confederate prisoner had enlisted my sympathies. His heart was nearly brokeu. He had fought with the Army of Virginia in every battle since its formation, He was anxiously seeking promotion. "I am the unluckiest varmint in the world," he said to me. "I never could" get shut of my bad luck. Now, if I hadn't been catched here to-niglit I would have been made a corporal to morrow. The captain told me that the colonel was a-goin' to make me a corp oral, but my bad luck's turned up again. I've been toting it all my life, and I don't see nary chance of promotion now." His feelings were so deep and his voice so broken that I fancied there were tears in his eyes. My sympathies overcame my sense of duty. I had had considerable bad luck myself. I finally turned to him as we were passing a dead horse, and said: "See here, partner, you just slip out and lay down on the other side of that horse. Your com rades will be along here inside of half an hour. Shake off your bad luck. I won't stand in the way." As he was about, to take oover he dis covered that somebody had cut the shoes from his cowskin haversack. He feit their loss deeply. But he ran to cover and we passed on. Next (Jay Charlie Mulligan of Belleville wore the shoes. That night we lay in trenches for three hours. The Johnnies had ascer tained what was going on and were shelling the pontoons and the earth works. They were using mortars, for we could see the fuses making parabolas in the air and dropping near us. It was 3 o'clock in the morning when scended the hill and crossed on the pontoons. A week afterward the Colonel sent ia the names for promotion. Among them was the name of an orderly sergeant be longing to one of the companies at tached to the regimental division over which he had placed me in command. It was politics. There were plenty of politics in the army. The Governor sen on the appointment on the Lieu tenant-colonel's recommendation.—New Fork Sun. Moving Trains through a Flood. The most remarkable feat in the tory of railroading in floods was re cently accomplished ou the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie railroad. It has never been equaled before, and may not be duplicated again for years. Train No. 4, the through express, due in Pitts burgh at 7:40 one morning, was rushed through six feet of water, and the pas sengers by placing their thumbs on the outer sills of the car windows were jble to reach the water with the ends of their fingers. The surface of the water was within three inches of the car windows. The train was late, and when it reached Chartiers, four miles west of Pittsburgh, there were four locomo tives, fitted with tight fire boxe?. ready to bring it to Pittsburgh. The doors of the coaches were made water tight by the use of oakum, and the fires in the car stoves were put out. A passenger coach will float off its trucks if not secured, and to prevent this two of the locomotives were coupled to the rear of the train. Steam was up in the boilers, and the gauge indicated 140 pounds in e%ch cab when the signal to start was givan. The passengers were warned of what was coming, and the train was ,ran at a very low rate of speed until the deep water was reached. Master Mechanic Turner was in the cab of the first locomotive, and at a signal from him each engineer, in both the front and rear, puiled the throttle wide open and they all rushed into the muddy water. When they reached the South Side station only a few inches of water was on the floor of the cars, but the passengers were compelled to stand on the seats. When the locomotive arrived in Pittsburgh it was found that only 70 pounds of steam was in the boilers. Later in the day the Pitts burgh and Lake Erie officials made ar rangements with the Pauhandle to run trains from Chartiers to Pittsburgh and from Homestead to Pittsburgh to con nect with the Pittsburgh and Lake Erie and the Pittsburgh, McKeesport and Youghiogheny trains end bring their passengers to Pittsburgh.—Pittsburgh Dispatch. Uirch of the Iron King. We collate aud condense the following facts from some interesting data as col lected by Wm. F. Durfee, well known as the first manufacturer of Bessemer steel this side of the Atlantic: Iron ore first named in American his tory by Thomas Harriot, the geographer of the second expedition to Virginia. This expedition was menaced by In dians and returned to England in 1586. The first shipment of iron ore to En gland was made at Jamestown, Va., in 1608. It consisted of seventeen tons, and was sold to the East India Company at $20 per ton. Iron works were begun near the same place in 1620, but were destroyed by the Indians in 1622, and 347 colonists massacred. In 1643 the first iron works fairly established were erected in Massachu setts, about ten miles east of Boston. The first piece of hollowware was cast at Lynn in 1645. During the French war in 1775 a num ber of furnaces were in operation in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, where cannon balls and bombs were cast in great variety. In 1731 there were six furnaces for hollowware in New England, and nine teen bloomaries for bar iron, one slitting mill and a manufactory of nails. In 1750 there were four rolling mills in the colonies. In 1778 the most notable event in the manufacture of iron was the making of an iron chain at the Sterling Iron Works, twenty-five miles from West Point. It weighed 180 tons aud was hung across the Hudson River to bar the passage of British vessels. In 1816 the first mill was ereoted in the United States to puddle iron. It was built at Plumsock, Pa. In 1840 the rotary squeezer was in vented by Henry Burden, of Troy, and the manufacture of Nasmvth's direct acting steam hammer was begun in Philadelphia iu 1843. The first successful use of anthracite for smelting iron in blast fnrnaoe* w«« made in 1830, in Pottston, Pa. Runaway Horse*. I heard an interesting distinction made the other day by an experienced driver of horses—not a professional—as to the degrees of danger to which a per son was exposed from a runaway horae. The distinction made was between the horse that runs away from fright and the horse that runs away because he is out of temper. In the former case the horse is said to be perfectly reckless he is as likely to dash acrosB the street as he is to go straight ahead—and the only safeguard for a team approaching him is to get as far away from him as possible. But the horse who js the victim of an ungoverable temper has a method in his madness. He rushes straight ahead and is careful to avoid obstacles in his path. Sucli an animal is much less to be dreaded than the victim of fright, and there is no necessity for taking unusual precautions against a oollision with him.—Boston Font. First American Coins, The first coins struck by the United States mint were some half-dimes, in 1792 the first dimes were struck in France from old silver family plate furnished by Washington, the coins be ing known as "Martha Washington Dismes," from the circumstances as noted, aud an adaptation of the liberty head to that of Martha Washington.

Statesmen With Their Hats On* The American who goes to parliament house is surprised to see the commons and lords sitting with their hats on. The hat warn is invariably the "stove pipe" or "plug." Aft English M. P. in anything but a high hat would create a greater sensation than the appearance of Jerry Simpson's feet, sockless, upon the top of his desk In the next house. Our English friends have some very queer customs handed down to them through the ages, and Jt will be worth while to read ex-Speaker Reed's com ments thereon. For instance, when a member comes Into parliament he car ries his hat In his hand, but on sitting •we de- down he puts it upon his head. If a his- member wishes to speak he takes off his hat and holds it in his hand if he wants to make a long speech he puts his hat on the bench, though he does not re move it till he has been recognized by the speaker. But if he wishes simply to make a motion or ask a question he keeps his hat on his head.—Augusta Chronicle, "BEFORE you marry have where to tarry."
