ly cut down! We, too, mourn him dead, as we had loved and admired him living. We had watched his boyhood and youth, the gradual development of that brilliant mind and lofty character. His Christian parents are bowed down, but not crushed; their future on earth is clouded; but by faith they see his abundant entrance into the kingdom of heaven, his glorious future, and are comforted. Another young Christian soldier of the same battery was shot down about the same moment-our young friend David Barton, of Winchester. Three months ago his parents buried their oldest son, who fell nobly defending his native town, and now their second has passed into heaven. The Church mourns him as one who was about to devote his life to her sacred cause, but who felt it his duty to defend her against the hosts who are desecrating her hallowed precincts. How many, oh, how many of the young soldiers of the Cross are obliged to take up carnal weapons, to save from spoil that sacred place Poor fellows!
eavy fire of artillery on General Longstreet's line. Here they engaged the enemy's batteries for the remainder of the fight. Captain Wooding's battery and Carpenter's were retained in their first position, engaging the enemy's batteries so soon as his infantry fell back, while that of Captain Poague was moved down the road along our former front, so soon as we advanced, and opened on the opposing troops of the enemy as the movement continued. The five guns at Sudley's Ford, under Lieutenant David Barton of Cutshaw's battery, were also engaged in repelling an attack of the enemy at that point, which they did, supported by a body of cavalry under Major Patrick. In this battle we lost no guns. Captain Brockenbrough had two disabled, one having burst, while the vent-piece of the other was burnt out. One caisson was also exploded. It is impossible to state how many guns were captured; I could never find out; three we got, I know; I saw four or five others on the field, but I do not k

conduct had become very offensive to the Whigs, and to the inhabitants generally, who wished to get rid of him. Lieutenant-Colonel Barton, with thirty-eight picked men, in four whale-boats, accompanied by a negro named Prince, crossed Narraganset Bay from Warwick Point at 9 P. M. on July 10, 1777, to accomplish the task. Barton divided his men into small parties, and to each assigned a special duty.

ece and Rome, who were sold into slavery by their creditors. Laws for the imprisonment of debtors disgraced the statute-books of our States until within a comparatively few years. When Lafayette visited the United States in 1824-25 he found Colonel Barton, the captor of General Prescott in Rhode Island, in a prison for debt, and released him by the payment of the creditor's demand. Robert Morris, whose financial ability was the main dependence of the colonies in carrying on the war for indepem of such laws; for surely a man in prison cannot earn money to pay a debt. Public attention was thoroughly aroused to the cruelties of the law when John G. Whittier wrote his stirring poem, The prisoner for debt, in which he thus alluded to Colonel Barton: What hath the gray-haired prisoner done? Hath murder stained his hands with gore? Ah, no! his crime's a fouler one— God made the old man poor. For this he shares a felon's cell, The fittest earthly type of hell! For this, the boon

I, and many others, supped that night with my friend, David Barton, Jr., who had volunteered from the University for this special service, not being a regular member of our company, the Southern Guard. He has since gone to his Gnow Captain of a battery, July 13th, for Winchester, both of us intending to join Pendleton's battery, which we found encamped near that place.

nually going on in our ranks. At one time Cutshaw's Battery, which, like our own, had been greatly reduced by the casualties of war, through a faithful and fearless discharge of its duty, was consolidated with Carpenter's Battery, and the union made a fine and splendid company. Our commissioned officers from first to last were Captains Thompson McAllister, Joseph Carpenter and John Carpenter; Lieutenants George McKendree, H. H. Dunot, W. T. Lambie, Ben Carpenter, Charles O. Jordan, and —— Barton. Our sergeants and gunners were largely instrumental in making and sustaining the fine morale of the company. Two of the gunners at Kernstown were formerly civil engineers, to which is attributed the fact of our doing such fine execution and making there so proud a name. At the first shot of the first gun there, General Jackson, who was seated on his horse only a few paces distant, clapped together his hands vehemently and exclaimed: Good! Good! What a glorious time was that for that
