y at the head of the 7th Wisconsin is Hollon Richardson, who at Five Forks sprang to take on himself the death-blow struck at Warren as he leaped the flaming breastworks in the lurid sunset of his high career. Pass on, men, in garb and movement to some monotonous; pass on, men, modest and satisfied; those looking on know what you are! And now, Wainwright, with the artillery of the corps, guns whose voices I should know among a hundred: D of the Fifth Regular, ten-pounder guns, which Hazlett lifted to the craggy crest of Little Round Top, its old commander, Weed, supporting; whence having thundered again his law to a delivered people, God called them both to their reward. L of the 1st Ohio, perched on the western slope, hurling defiance at deniers. I see not Martin of the 3d Massachusetts, whose iron plowed the gorge between Round Top and the Devil's Den. But B of the 4th Regular is here, which stood by me on the heart-bastioned hillock in the whirlwind of the Quaker Road. A
ld wish to record the instance, the singularity of which may attract readers to it, and cause it to be remembered. The hero, Weed, was a citizen of New-York. Of Hazlett I know nothing except that he was a dear friend of Weed's, and in the same regiment, the Fifth United States artillery, a First Lieutenant, and appointed from Ohi lies heavily sighing, Near him lie gallant men wounded and dying. “Hazlett, come hither,” sighed Weed as he lay; “Hither, my friend — I have something to say.” Hazlett rushed forward, bent down, raised his head-- Whistles a mine — ball — Hazlett is dead!

Dead ere Weed uttered the words he would speak; Dead are both heroes on field, cheek to cheek ; Mingling their dying thoughts — their dying breath; Grasped by each other — united in death. Thus fell the gallant artill'ry men twain In the supreme hour of victory slain, Just as the Round Top was won from the foe, And rebels shall never recover that blow.

Ge men in the struggle, and General Weed was slain at Hazlett's battery, on the summit of little Round Top. Seeing his commander fall, Lieutenant Hazlett hastened to his side. The expiring General seemed desirous of telling something, and, while Hazlett was bending over him with his ear near his lips, the bullet of a sharpshooter k place of the battery, where General Weed and Lieutenant Hazlett were killed.

handed a quarter of a dollar each, saying he had no more use for money, and bade them adieu. He next visited Cook and Coppoc, the former of whom had made a confession, which he pronounced false; saying he had never sent Cook to Harper's Ferry, as he had stated. He handed a quarter to Coppoc also, shook hands with him, and parted. He then visited and bade a kindly good-bye to his more especial comrade, Stevens, gave him a quarter, and charged him not to betray his friends. A sixth, named Hazlett, was confined in the same prison, but he did not visit him, denying all knowledge of him. He walked out of the jail at 11 o'clock; an eye-witness said--with a radiant countenance, and the step of a conqueror. His face was even joyous, and it has been remarked that probably his was the lightest heart in Charlestown that day. A black woman, with a little child in her arms, stood by the door. He stopped a moment, and, stooping, kissed the child affectionately. Another black woman, with a
contingency, and when, finally, the day was ours, was perhaps the least exultant man upon that hill. Too much praise cannot be given to any regiments engaged in this fight; but the meed of honor is more especially due to the men and officers of the Fifth Wisconsin and Sixth Maine. The help rendered by our artillery must not be forgotten. A battery of the Fifth corps, planted in a piece of woods to the left of the railway, (I am informed the battery was formerly Griffin's and afterward Hazlett's,) made some splendid shooting. On a hill running to the right of the storming party, from which hill the enemy's skirmishers were driven by Howe's skirmishers of the Second division, were planted Martin's and Waterman's batteries, and four twenty-pound Parrott guns from the reserve artillery, The rebels say that the shells from all these guns were dropped directly over their works, and were thrown with more precision than they ever before witnessed.

cond day. General Vincent was one of the first victims; General Weed fell likewise; and as Lieutenant Hazlett bent over him to catch his last words, a bullet through the head prostrated that officer land a part of that under General Weed to be detached, and these occupied the coveted position. Hazlett's battery was dragged by hand up the rugged slope and planted on the summit. Meantime Hood'sregiment, rallied by Vincent, held their ground, but there Vincent, too, was killed. Meanwhile Hazlett's regular battery had dragged its guns with great difficulty to the crest, where Generals Weed and Hazlett soon fell together. Colonel Rice, of the Forty-fourth New York (now in command in place of Vincent), had repulsed the assaults on his right and center. There was a lull, during which th and gunners.

d the bridge between the crossing and Vienna. I then proceeded slowly to Vienna with four companies, Company E, Captain Paddock; Company C, Lieutenant Woodward, (afterwards joined by Captain Pease;) Company G, Captain Bailey, and Company H, Captain Hazlett. Total, two hundred and seventy-five men. On turning the curve slowly, within one quarter of a mile of Vienna, we were fired upon by raking masked batteries of, I think, three guns, with shells, round shot and grape, killing and woundingk along the railroad, throwing out skirmishers on both flanks, and this was about 7 P. M. Thus we retired slowly, bearing off our wounded five miles to this point, which we reached at 10 o'clock. The following is a list of the casualties: Captain Hazlett's Company H--two known to be killed, three wounded, five missing. Captain Bailey's Company G--three killed, two wounded, two missing. Capt. Paddock's Company E--one officer slightly wounded. Company C--Captain Pease and two men missing.

to Coppic and said: Coppoc, you also made false statements, but I am glad to hear you have contradicted them. Stand up like a man. He also handed him a quarter. He shook both by the hand, and they parted. The prisoner was then taken to Stevens's cell, and they kindly interchanged greetings. Stevens: Good by, Captain; I know you are going to a better land. Brown replied: I know I am. Brown told him to bear up, and not betray his friends, giving him a quarter. He did not visit Hazlett, as he has always persisted in denying any knowledge of him. How touchingly manly, and yet what childlike simplicity! I know I am --l he gave them a quarter, are both equally characteristic of the mail. A triumphal march. At eleven o'clock, John Brown came out of jail. An eye witness said of his appearance at this solemn moment: He seemed to walk out of the Gates of Fame; his countenance was radiant; he walked with the step of a conqueror.

stinctive features are to be preserved by enduring monuments that will tell to future ages and to coming generations the story that was writ in their father's blood. Memorial stones, recording brilliant deeds and bold achievement, with tributes to the dead upon the field of honor, are to be seen on every side. Here Reynolds fell, there Vincent bravely died, here Kane upheld his Pennsylvania's pride, there Hancock in his splendor fought with nerve of steel; here Farnsworth, there Weed and Hazlett fell; here Slocum held his vantage ground, there Gibbon met the fierce assault of Trimble and of Armistead. Splendid memories, well deserving a nation's pride. But in all this the story is but half told, and now the managing control has, with liberal and broad appreciation of its duties and obligations thrown wide the door to the survivors of the Confederate commands to complete the record, worthy in its entirety to be engraved with an iron pen, in lead, upon the rock forever.
