gh for himself down here. But I succeeded in getting two stretchers from the hospital (such as are used to bring in the wounded from the field) and a cot from Major Biddle; three pillows (two india-rubber and one feather) were then discovered, and these, with blankets, one tin basin, one bucket, and one towel, made them entirely even in the heat of battle. Headquarters Army of Potomac November 15, 1863 Yesterday the General made a start at six A. M. for Washington, taking with him Major Biddle, Captain Meade, and Captain Mitchell, and suppose he will perhaps get back to-morrow. A little before one o'clock came a telegraph that four officers of the G inclined to be petulant and touchy, for they think that winter quarters are coming and are all stretching out for leaves, which they know only a part can get. Major Biddle becomes quite irate over the subject. Now there is General Webb has a ten-day leave, says B. petulantly; every corps is to give one general a ten-day leave.

t soldier through runs and mud-holes, the which he do hate! To-day we have had a tremendous excitement: a detail of 250 men to police the camp, under charge of Biddle, just appointed Camp Commandant. They have been sweeping, cutting down stumps, burning brush, and, in general, making the worst-looking camp in the army neat andl Humphreys would not stir, as he said he must stay to attend to the despatches and telegraph. However, at 3 P. M., he suddenly did start, with his own aides and Biddle, Mason, Cadwalader and myself, de la part de General Meade; also Rosencrantz. To Morton's Ford is some ten miles, but you might as well call it fifty, such is thrpshooters. Well, said General Humphreys, I must go across and look about, while there is light left. I don't want many to go. McClellan, you will come; and Major Biddle and Colonel Lyman, if you would like, I shall be glad of your company. So off we four rode, and met Warren coming back, before we got to the river. But he at

a pleasant stream running over stones, and with the trees quite growing into it. There, I knew, Biddle and Mason straggled and took a bath. We passed also a house where dwelt four women, all alone; upon I suggested I would gallop ahead, not to lose time; which I did and left my chief to attack Biddle, who was late and was coming up very red in the face! It was half-past 4 when I got to Headquas one would a big trout on a small hook, and those who don't, catch volleys at all hours! Poor Biddle, for instance, an excellent, bettyish sort of man, with no fragment of tact, when the General is very sandy, bad place, sir; you will not be at all comfortable, and there is a nice grassy-- Major Biddle!!! --and then follows the volley. Sometimes it is very effective to contradict the General,is was quite a festal day for us. The General, accompanied by the Frenchies, Rosencrantz, Bache, Biddle and myself, paid a grand visit to Butler. Butler was in high feather. He is as proud of all hi

dressed; whereas the others get caught and have to leave suddenly. Biddle is the funniest. There he was, trotting along, the other morning, as wise as possible and superintend. . . . October 6, 1864 Poor Biddle! I always begin his name with poor. He was detailed to examine the enemy; so that you have to stoop a good deal of the way. What did Biddle do but ride out by a road to the works, on horseback! In consequen military and diplomatic jewels, General Meade accompanied it, with Biddle, Mason and Rosencrantz. It would appear that they encountered, at Rosencrantz and Mason were bursting to tell something good; whereas Biddle had a foolish and deprecatory air. It immediately was related, midsand some other guests going to the front. The Chief handed them to Biddle, asking him to take charge of them for the present. Now B. has fewds his compliments, sir: and would like that bunch of cigars, sir. Biddle immediately assumed the attitude indicated in the accompanying draw

words. On being reproved again, he proposed to smite Mercier, remarking, he would as soon knock down a white man as a nigger. At this juncture the majestic Biddle interfered and endeavored to awe the crowd; but the crowd would not be awed, so Biddle put Anderson at the pleasant occupation of walking post with a log on his shoulder. Upon being liberated from this penalty, he charged upon Mercier, giving him the dire alternative of Pay me mer wages, or I'll smash yer crockery! This being disdes, from 1st lieutenant up to major-general. All the Headquarters' Staff, with few exceptions, were brevetted one grade, in consequence of which I should not wonder if the Senate rejected the whole bundle! Barstow is Brevet Lieutenant-Colonel; Biddle, ditto; Duane has two brevets, which brings him to a full Colonel, and will give him a colonel's pay, if he can be assigned, as they are in the regular army. We are all very melancholy over General Williams, who, though one of the most deserving
