aboriously through the Patriarchal age, on through the Mosaic dispensation to the Christian era, takes in Grecian and Roman history, by the way, then Spain and Germany and England and colonial times, and the early history of our grand Republic; the causes of and necessity for our war, and a complete history up to date. And then slowly unfolds the little matter. We always loved to hear this man, and prided ourselves on being the only mess in the army having such treasure all our own. The Auger having been detailed for guard-duty walks off, and his voice grows fainter and fainter in the distance, and we call forth our Poet. One eye is bandaged with a dirty cotton rag. He is bareheaded and his hair resembles a dismantled straw-stack.

about two thousand men killed and wounded, and that of the Confederates was about the same. General Crawford's brigade came out of that terrible fight a mere remnant. Some regiments, like those of the One Hundred and Ninth Pennsylvania and One Hundred and Second New York lost half of their number, dead or wounded. General Geary, with one Pennsylvania and five Ohio regiments, made one of the most desperate charges during the battle, and was severely wounded, with most of his officers. General Auger was also badly wounded; and General Prince, while passing from one part of his command to another, in the dark, was made prisoner. Lee, in his report (Reports of the Army of Northern Virginia, page 18), says he captured 400 prisoners, including a brigadier-general, 5,800 stand of small arms, one piece of artillery, several caissons, and three colors. Among Lee's officers who were slain was General C. S. Winder. At dusk, Ricketts' division of McDowell's corps arrived on the field, and t

At Port Hudson Plains, Auger, on his march, encountered and repulsed a force of Confedert, made a vigorous attack, but it was long past noon before Auger in the center, and Sherman on the left, were fairly at work Creek into the interior, within supporting distance of General Auger's division, which extended from near that point about tme northeasterly angle of the Confederate works, while Generals Auger and Dwight should make a feint or a real attack, as ci the attack. Acting Brigadier-General Dudley's brigade, of Auger's division, was held in reserve. It was intended to have Wleft, but without effecting an entrance into the works, and Auger was as gallantly struggling, but to as little purpose. Suc
