n service. General Dodge's quick eye saw the proper disposition to be made of a portion of Colonel Mersy's brigade, and, cutting red tape, he delivered his orders direct to the colonels of the regiments. The orders were executed instantly, and the enemy's advance was checked. This act afterward caused trouble. General Dodge was not a West Point graduate, and did not revere so highly the army regulations as did General Sweeny, who had learned them as a cadet. Sweeny was much hurt by General Dodgers action in giving orders direct to regimental commanders, and pursued the matter so far as to bring on a personal encounter a few days after the battle, in which he came near losing his life at the hands of a hot-tempered. officer. He was placed in arrest. The court-martial, however, did not consider his ease until nearly the end of the war, when he was acquitted. The battle of General Dodge's corps on this open ground, with no works to protect the troops of either side, was one of

ius, moved from Decatur on the direct road to Atlanta. Logan's corps formed the center, Dodge's the right, and Blair's the left. On the previous night, the latter, after a severe struggle, had driven the Confederates from a hill that overlooked the heart of the city, and McPherson now made preparations for planting heavy batteries upon it, to be supported by Dodge's corps, which was ordered from the right to the left, to make that point a strong general left flank. While, at near noon, Dodgers troops were making their way along an obscure road in the rear of Logan, Sherman, who was at Howard's house, with General Schofield, some distance off, heard the sound of battle on the left and rear of McPherson's troops, first as a mere sputter of musketry, then as volleys, and then as the thunder of artillery. McPherson had left Sherman only a little while before, for that part of his line, and the latter, who quickly comprehended the situation, felt sure that the commander of the Army o

ng but the law,--they wearied themselves to obtain the simple legal rights guaranteed to them and to all by the State. The city government, in direct defiance of the statute of 1843, aided, both directly and indirectly, in the arrest and detention of a person claimed as a slave. To effect this purpose, they violated the commonest rights of the citizens,--shut them out of their own court-house,--subjected them from day to day to needless, illegal, and vexatious arrests. Judges were Artful Dodgers, and sheriffs refused all processes. The Abolitionists exhausted every device, besieged every tribunal, implored the interference of every department, to obtain the tare execution of the law of the Commonwealth. And let History say beside, that meantime they fearlessly declared that resistance would be better than submission; while not so absurd as to throw one man, or a score of men, against a government in arms, they proclaimed that they would have been glad to see the people rise again

nap at times. Hence, it is next to impossible always to stop the egress of these pestilent vermin. Once in a while, the furtive rogues will be caught in the act, and handed over to the Old Bailey. But the highways of travel are very much infested by these little pickpockets; and honest American gentlemen, who were never given to such practices, and are daily losing gold watches and pocketbooks, begin to consider the exemplary Mr. Bull little better than an Old Fagin, who trains up Artful Dodgers to prey upon the community. It is in vain that excellent soul denies the soft impeachment. He is very indignant that such crimes should be committed, and shocked to be suspected of complicity therewith. If there is any thing that he does pride himself upon, it is good faith and fair play. These are his traditional, immemorial virtues. To be robbed of his good name is a worse affliction than the loss of pocket books. We condole with honest John in his tribulations. This is an unc
