reached Bayou Fourche, five miles from the town, where he was met by Marmaduke's cavalry, dismounted, and two infantry brigades, with two batteries, strongly posted. Price had undoubtedly intended to give battle in his trenches, when the unexpected crossing of the river by the Nationals, endangering his flank and his line of retreat, caused him to prepare for retiring. Price's line of retreat was on the Arkadelphia road. On that highway he had six hundred wagons parked. Price, with General Holmes and Governor Flanagan, left about four o'clock, after turning over the command to Marmaduke. The entire force at Price's command was estimated at about fifteen thousand men. The stand made at the bayou was only a cover for the more important movement. He was expecting Cabell from the Indian country, with about Tour thousand men, but he was satisfied that these would not reach him before the Nationals would be upon him. When Davidson was confronted at the Bayou Fourche, Steele was mo

hought of any connection between magnetism and galvanic electricity had occurred to the scientific mind. For nearly two years, I pursued my scientific studies. They were substantially outside of the course, because our professor of chemistry, Dr. Holmes, for reasons satisfactory to himself, did not think it worth while to give lectures on chemistry. Prof. George W. Keeley, however, gave us the fullest instructions on light and static electricity, by which I very much profited. I believe it which was as true as it was impudent. It was admitted in college, however, that upon the subjects of which I have been speaking, I was farther advanced than a pupil, and I was allowed to have access to the chemical laboratory as assistant to Professor Holmes, who was not there. I had one mate in these studies, Mr. David Wadleigh, and we devoted ourselves to chemical experiments together, with the natural result of actually blowing each other up with explosive preparations.

ace, than in the army of the United States. I received similar receptions in Harrisburg, Philadelphia, Portland, and other cities. At a meeting in my honor at Boston in Faneuil Hall, after a lengthened speech, I remained several hours to receive a hand-shake of three thousand persons. I was invited to a public dinner in the evening and had the most distinguished consideration. A poem was read by New England's most distinguished author, her most charming and cherished poet, Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, two lines of which I take leave here to quote from memory: The mower mows on, though the adder may writhe, And the copperhead curl round the blade of the scythe. In the course of my address at Boston I spoke as follows concerning the war debt:-- A question has been a thousand times asked me since I arrived home, how is this great war debt to be paid? That speaks to the material interests. How can we ever be able to pay this war debt? Who can pay it? Who shall pay it

46. under the Washington Elm, Cambridge, April 27, 1861. by Oliver Wendell Holmes. I. Eighty years have passed, and more, Since under the brave old tree Our fathers gathered in arms, and swore They would follow the sign their banners bore, And fight till the land was free. II. Half of their work was done, Half is left to do-- Cambridge, and Concord, and Lexington! When the battle in fought and won, What shall be told of you? III. Hark! 'tis the south wind moans-- Who are the martyrs down?-- Ah, the marrow was true in your children's bones, That sprinkled with blood the cursed stones Of the murder-haunted town! IV. What if the storm-clouds blow? What if the green leaves fall? Better the crashing tempest's throe, Than the army of worms that gnawed below; Trample them one and all! V. Then, when the battle is won, And the land from traitors free, Our children shall tell of the strife begun When Liberty's second April sun Was bright on our brave old tree!
106. army Hymn. by Oliver Wendell Holmes. Old Hundred. O Lord of Hosts! Almighty King! Behold the sacrifice we bring! To every arm Thy strength impart, Thy Spirit shed through every heart! Wake in our breasts the living fires, The holy faith that warmed our sires; Thy hand hath made our Nation free; To die for her, is serving Thee. Be Thou a pillared flame, to show The midnight snare, the silent foe; And when the battle thunders loud, Still guide us in its moving cloud. God of all Nations! Sovereign Lord! In Thy dread name we draw the sword; We lift the starry flag on high, That fills with light our stormy sky. From treason's rent, from murder's stain, Guard Thou its folds till Peace shall reign; Till fort and field, till shore and sea, Join our loud anthem, praise to thee! --Atlantic Monthly, June.
