the King of Dahomey, to Boadicea and Joan of Are. It is rather a drawback to find that the Lady Lancers, the Amazonian Artillery, the Female Fusileers, the Sweet Sappers, the Modern Miners, the Pretty Pioneers, the Side-saddle Cavalry, will not be wanted until all our men are killed. Not being a woman, and still less a she-soldier, we cannot undertake to speak with absolute accuracy; but we should be a little dubious about the female fighting after the quietus of all the men. How will Mrs. Col. Cotton be able to lead the Heavy Mothers to the charge, when her dear departed no longer animates her by his martial smile? How will Arabella, of the Light Artillery, deport herself at the guns, when Augustus sleeps in a soldier's grave? Who believes that the Maid of Saragossa would have rammed the great cannon with such astonishing virulence, if there had been no gallant gentlemen looking on? To return to our Diary. On Monday, 14th ult., we find the following discouraging entry: The war

d the Twelfth Ohio regiment, Col. Lowe, a portion of two companies of the Twenty-First, the Cleveland Light Artillery, Capt. Cotton, with two rifled six-pounders, and a small cavalry company from Ironton, in all about one thousand men, under the comms about five hundred yards. The rebels had but two pieces of artillery, both rifled six-pounders, the same as our own. Capt. Cotton had no sooner taken position than two balls whistled over his head, cutting the twigs from the topmost branches of theo issue livid sheets of flame, followed by the rattle of their rifles, and whistling of their Minie balls. As soon as Capt. Cotton observed to what use the buildings had been put, he turned his artillery upon them, hitting one at almost every shot. (said by a captured prisoner to have been Georgians,) who came up with a fresh piece of artillery and Minie muskets. Capt. Cotton again opened with his pieces, giving them as good as they sent. He only had six or eight rounds of ammunition, howeve
r times — it fought unflinchingly, and is deserving of all praise. It repelled three assaults of a rebel brigade from the burnt house, endeavoring to gain the woods, and only retired when its ammunition was exhausted. Among its killed are Lieut.-Col. Cotton and Capt. Todd, men possessing in the highest degree the esteem and confidence of their brothers in arms, and who will be deeply lamented by a large circle of friends. The One Hundred and Tenth Illinois, a new regiment, never before undeept up an annoying artillery-fire till nearly dark. Col. Hazen's brigade lay down that night upon the ground it had so steadfastly held — the only brigade in the army that was not driven from its position. The honor had been dearly won. Lieut.-Col. Cotton and Capt. Todd, of the Sixth Kentucky; Lieut. Hart, of the Forty-first Ohio; Lieutenant Kesler, of the Ninth Indiana, and Lieut. Payne, of the One Hundred and Tenth Illinois, were killed, and eighteen officers of the brigade were wounded mo

Dooundations, and was fully discussed at Thursday Lecture, March 7, 1634. Holy Mr. Cotton was utterly and unalterably opposed to veils, regarding them as a token of susual in such cases; so Paul, veils, and vanity carried the day. But afterward Mr. Cotton came to Salem to preach for Mr. Skelton, and did not miss his chance to put ity body of people, and there's not one of them all but Mr. Wilson loves him.

Hays' brigade was in line of battle beyond Mine run during the 27th, and during the skirmishing of the day, Captain Bringhurst, of the Ninth, and three privates were killed. Then retiring to the Confederate side of Mine run, they remained there several days. On the 30th Lieutenant Wehmer and several privates were wounded on the skirmish line. That night they slept on their arms, but no battle followed. Stafford's brigade was at Payne's farm, where there was severe fighting on the 27th. The brigade advanced with a cheer to the support of the Stonewall brigade, but under a murderous fire found it impossible to proceed be. yond the crest on which the Confederate line had been established. The brigade lost 16 killed and 88 wounded. Three officers lost their lives: Lieutenants Kenna, Mc-Rae and Cotton.

Nay, quoth the minister, they did see the heresy of the book, and, on their condemning it, thefriends, albeit he had no malice towards any one, and was always ready to do a good, even to his enemies. He once even greatly angered his old and true friend, Mr. Cotton of Boston. It fell out in this wise, said Mr. Ward. When the arch heretic and fanatic Gorton and his crew were in prison in Boston, my father and Mr. Cotton weMr. Cotton went to the jail window to see them; and after some little discourse with them, he told Gorton that if he had done or said anything which he could with a clear conscience renounce, he would do well to recant the same, and the Court, he doubted not, would be merciful; adding, that it would be no disparagement for him to do so, as the
