would sing Union songs, pouring their melody through their prison bars for the entertainment of the Union officers in the prison and below. He says there was no shelter for these officers. Filth, garbage, and urine were all about. The gallows were still in the jail-yard. Shells exploded about the jail. On Sept. 16 there was a great bombardment, but only two were injured, and slightly. No cooking utensils were provided. A lot of lean beef was brought in and thrown down to divide. Sept. 17 the yard was so foul that no resting-place could be found. There was no shade. Night was welcome. Only salts were given as medicine. Sept. 20 the yard was submerged in consequence of two days rain, and the filth was intolerable. Colonel Jones, the commandant, did not reply to remonstrances for three days, and a second application brought answer that it was the best they could do. Capt. Timson's statement is to be found in the New York Tribune of March 15, 1865. Capt. C. W. Brunt, Fi
or unkind remark. Whatever is rightly done may be credited to any one; but whatever is deemed worthy of blame, charge it to me, not to them. I am in truth responsible, acting often against their opinions and advice, and feeling at all times perfectly willing to meet whatever may fall thereon,— conscious of no merit of any sort, save a good intent. Excuse this note,—one I should not have written, but to gentlemen of urbanity who will appreciate the feelings of a gentleman in others. Sept. 17.—The Governor wrote to the Secretary of War, calling his attention to the delay on his request for the transfer of three Massachusetts companies in the New-York Mozart Regiment, to be sent to Fortress Monroe, to be attached to the seven Massachusetts companies there, and the ten to form a regiment. It was a matter that ought to have been immediately attended to; for while the companies remained in the New-York regiment, and were credited to the quota of that State, the families of the men<

September 15--Cloudy. Skirmish drill. R. means to guard mill. Ramseur's and Gordon's divisions left for parts unknown; rumored that we (Breck's) go to Dublin in a day or two; any change will be welcome. September 16--Rain; 6 A. M., brigade on picket; Legion in advance post on Charlestown Road. September 17--Clear; relieved about 7 A. M.; skirmishing close on our right; I had gone out to the lines and left behind, but found the company, soon after, in camp; clothing drawn, not enough though; I bought a clean shirt from D. Wear; mended my things, took a dip in creek, and put on clean clothes; feel like a new man; the author of the quotation, cleanliness next to Godliness. was sound on the goose.

east three miles from where my command was, without any troops being between us, and with Antietam creek, which was not fordable, behind us. Fitz John Porter's corps was behind my position, a mile and a half on the opposite sided of Antietam creek, as a reserve, but it was never brought into action except in small squads. Notwithstanding the disadvantages our army labored under from these arrangements, a decisive victory could have been won at four o'clock on the afternoon of the seventeenth of September, if a strong attack had been made on Sharpsburg from our centre. My command had cleared the enemy from my front, and were in high spirits, while the stubborn fighting of the army generally had told fearfully upon the rebels. I therefore recommended this attack, and requested to be permitted to take the initiative in it. The proposition was not approved and I was directed to hold the position I then had. The enemy were then so far off, falling back, my guns could not reach them, an

upon the Divine succor. These remarks were characteristic. The general is a godly man, and frequently adverts to these matters in conversation with his officers. On the field of Manassas the chaplain of one of his regiments approached him in a dress which he deemed too military for a clergyman. Go back, sir, said he, this is no place for you; take off that sash, retire to the grove and besiege a Throne of Grace! Rev. R. W. Cole writes to The Religious Herald: Caroline County, September 17. Messrs. Editors: It was my privilege to spend some three or four days with the soldiers embracing Colonel Cary's regiment, a short time since, at Marlborough Point. The season was truly gloomy—being rainy—but it seemed not to detract from the energy and cheerfulness of those noble sons who are sacrificing for their country's welfare. To speak of the merit of those officers and men under Colonel Cary's command is not now my design. Suffice it to say, they all appear to be well fitte

te that I have seen. I preached to them day and night during my stay, and there were penitents, professions, and profuse praise by the pardoned and happy Christian soldiers. Then I was at Spring Place, Dalton, The Rock, Thomaston, Barnesville, and a camp-meeting in Upson county, Georgia. Then to La Fayette, and on to Chickamauga. Could not preach on Sunday, September 13, our division was marching; but preached on the night of 15th, and Dr. McFerrin preached the night of the 16th. September 17. We marched from La Fayette, Georgia, in the direction of Chattanooga; passed Rock Spring Church and Pea-Vine, near which we bivouacked. While resting on my blanket in the shade, Lem. Robins, of our Thirty-seventh Georgia, came near me, and I asked him to take a seat on my blanket. He sat down, and began to talk cheerfully about his religious enjoyment; handed his hymn-book and an ambrotype of his wife to me to keep and return with messages of love to wife, father, and mother, spoke of

of the reformer were not exactly adapted to turn from him the wrath of the idol worshipers. They more likely added fuel to the hot anger burning in Boston against him. Three weeks passed after his departure from the city, and his friends did not deem it safe for him to return. Toward the end of the fourth week of his enforced absence, against which he was chafing not a little, an incident happened in Boston which warned him to let patience have its perfect work. It was on the night of September 17th that the dispositions of the city toward him found grim expression in a gallows erected in front of his house at 23 Brighton street. This ghastly reminder that the fellow-citizens of the editor of the Liberator continued to take a lively interest in him, was made in real workmanship style, of maple joist five inches through, eight or nine feet high, for the accommodation of two persons. Garrison and Thompson were the two persons for whom these brave accommodations were prepared. But a

t the treasurer borrow five hundred dollars to be appropriated to the benefit of volunteers in our country's service, and their families, if needy; that each volunteer shall receive eight dollars a month aid, or such sum as the district convention may agree upon. All of said appropriations are to be subjected to a committee of three. 1862. July 19th, Voted, that the treasurer borrow the sum of five hundred dollars to pay bounties offered to the four volunteers, as far as it will go. September 17th, Voted, to pay all the nine-months volunteers that have been, and that hereafter may be, secured for our present quota, one hundred and twenty-five dollars each.
