--A few days ago while the friends of some of the brave men who recently fell victims to the insane fury of Lincoln
's myrmidons were searching in the neighborhood of Gaines's mill
for their bodies, they struck on something which had such a hard feeling that though duly labelled as a Pennsylvania Colonel
, they were induced to exhume the body, which proved to be a splendid 24 pounder brass howitzer.
Several other ‘"Colonels
"’ of a similar kind were afterwards dug up. The parties engaged in the search also found a metallic burial case, but on removing the plate the body of a Federal Lieutenant
appeared, and it was decently interred.
