n found we were mistaken. It was kept in a refrigerator built on purpose, that opened on, the top deck, and was securely locked up. They expected it to be kept for the use of the ship's officers and those nice military fellows in the cabin. We thought it a clear case of misappropriation. The next morning when the steward went to get a piece, to fix up mint-slings, and such luxuries, he found the door wide open and the ice all gone. You guess! In three or four days we reached Fortress Monroe. Then Annapolis, where we disembarked. Then over the Baltimore & Ohio railroad to Camp Chase, Ohio-where we were discharged on the 16th of June. Then home. I was to my folks as one from the dead. They had given me up. Mother told me that she would never be any surer that I was dead, unless I should die at home, than she had been. What a time we had. There were no dry eyes. Does the reader ask what became of my old comrades, Cudge and John? They were murdered by an agent of

cceeded. A train of wagons and ambulances, with surgeons and nurses, went out on our back track, to look after those who had given out by the way. It took them three days to go and return. They found a good many who, with a little help, were able to straggle into camp; some who were past walking, some dyingand some already dead. They were scattered along the entire road, to where we were turned out. The dead were buried, and the living brought in and cared for. We stayed in Jacksonville about three weeks. During this time we drew new clothes, had our hair trimmed, beards shaved, and changed till we hardly knew each other. We were then put on a steam boat and taken to Fernandina, where we were put on an ocean steamer, called Cassandra. That evening we steamed out upon the Atlantic, and began to enjoy (?) a sea voyage. We put in at Port Royal, and took aboard a large lot of ice, and four or five nice military officers. We asked those who loaded the ice, what it was f

Does the reader ask what became of my old comrades, Cudge and John? They were murdered by an agent of the United States Government. They got to Vicksburg, and were exchanged all right, and were to be sent North for discharge. The steamboat Sultana was at the landing. If she had been in good condition, five or six hundred men would have been a good load for her; but the inspectors had condemned her as unsafe. Yet in the face of this fact, the agent was induced by some means to give her the extraordinary load of eighteen hundred human beings! She did not run far, till she exploded and burned up. Nearly all on board perished. Charley

Yet in the face of this fact, the agent was induced by some means to give her the extraordinary load of eighteen hundred human beings! She did not run far, till she exploded and burned up. Nearly all on board perished. Charley Higgins, of my company, one of the few survivors of that catastrophe, told me this: John, Cudge, and himself had lain down between the engines; Charley in the rear, John in the middle, and Cudge in front, or next to the boilers. When the boilers burst, Charley and John sprang up; but seeing Cudge lie still, Charley ran to him and took hold of him to help him up. But something had struck and killed him!
