Amusing scene. --An amusing scene was witnessed on the battle-field of Monocracy. After the battle was over, and the Yankees had fled, leaving their dead and wounded upon the field, a wounded soldier of the Federal army appealed to a chaplain in our service for assistance and a draught of water. The chaplain very promptly gave him water, and was rendering him assistance, when an Irishman, belonging to Hays's Louisiana battalion, passing along, asked the chaplain what he was doing. "Relieving this poor fellow," said he, "who is badly wounded. " "Leave here, ye spalpoen," replied the Irishman, "get a musket and go to work, and don't be afther trying to bring the divils too after we've kill them. "
