Abolition Congressmen in battle
--A correspondent of the New York Daily Times
has the following:
"Congress adjourned Friday until Monday expressly to allow the members to see the show.
Neither Congress nor the Union
wish to see another such a sight.
At the grand stampede civilians were awfully scared, and I think several of them were taken prisoners I witnessed some terrific feats of running among them.
Many lost their carriages, and for aught I know are skulking about the woods now. One very fat Congressman
offered an artilleryman $20 for a horse; but after he had the horse, he found it so hard to mount that he turned pale all over.--He John Gilpined
along, near my legs, until his horse threw him, when his agency was fearful.
Three of us boosted him up, and he cut again as though the d — I was after him.--That M. C. will never go to the wars again."
