as possible. The Third division assigned to me, consisted of the Thirty-first Indiana, Lieut.--Col. Osborn commanding; Seventeenth Kentucky, Col. John H. McHenry; Forty-fourth Indiana, Col. Hugh Brigade of your division. The brigade was composed of the Thirty-first Indiana volunteers, Lieut.-Col. Osborn, temporarily commanding; Twenty-fifth Kentucky volunteers, Col. James M. Shackelford; eighenty-fifth Kentucky, with Col. Shackelford and his associate field and staff-officers, and Lieut.-Col. Osborn, of the Thirty-first Indiana, with a few of the privates of his command. The brigade was y, 1862, with an effective force of seven hundred and twenty-seven men. The order given to Lieut. Col. Osborn, was to follow the Twenty-fifth Kentucky regiment and form in line on the left, and await ll occupied by your brigade in its new position. In the change of position a few men with Lieut.-Col. Osborn became detached from the regiment, and were unable to rejoin it during the day. From this
9. anecdotes of Farragut and Grant. A Scotch traveller, who visited the United States, furnishes to the Edinburgh Scotsman the following anecdotes: Mr. Osborn (President of the Illinois Central Railroad) told me a story of Admiral Farragut and his son. They were on the Mississippi, and Farragut's fleet was about to pass Port Hudson, which was then held by the confederates. Farragut's son, a lad of about twelve, had been importuning his father that he might be sent to West-Point, where in the mean time, the confederate reinforcements came up, attacked Grant, and defeated him. There were five colonels under Grant who had not by any means supported him efficiently in his attempts to stop the plundering and collect his troops. Mr. Osborn saw Grant a day or two afterward, when he expected to be deprived of his command on account of the defeat. He said: Why do you not report these colonels? They are the men to blame for not carrying out your orders. Why, said Grant, these offi
. Brooks, with his brigade, held the wood to the left of the field, where he did excellent service, receiving a wound, but retaining his command. Gen. Hancock's brigade was thrown into the woods on the right and front. At four P. M. the enemy commenced his attack in large force by the Williamsburg road. It was gallantly met by Gen. Burns's brigade, supported and reinforced by two lines in reserve, and finally by the N. Y. 69th, Hazzard's and Pettit's batteries again doing good service. Osborn's and Bramhall's batteries also took part effectively in this action, which was continued with great obstinacy until between eight and nine P. M., when the enemy were driven from the field. Immediately after the battle the orders were repeated for all the troops to fall back and cross White Oak Swamp, which was accomplished during the night in good order. By midnight all the troops were on the road to White Oak Swamp bridge, Gen. French, with his brigade, acting as rear-guard, and at fiv

ws, and other agricultural implements are drawn. The varieties of systems of steam-plowing may be said to be five. 1. Engines upon a track and plows moving at right angles thereto; the engine advancing between each course of the plows. The first steam-plow patented in England was the invention of Clarke, Freeman, & Varley, 1846. This system used a track for a locomotive on each side of the piece to be cultivated, and the plows were drawn back and forth by ropes from the engines. Osborn, the same year, patented a somewhat similar contrivance of tracks, engines, and plows. In 1850, Lord Willoughby de Eresby introduced his system of steam-plowing. The machinery consisted of the California locomotive-engine, designed by Sir Daniel Gooch, which weighed 3 1/2 tons, and was 26 horse-power. The engine was fitted with a double capstan, which could readily be removed when the engine was required for other purposes It was intended by the inventor of this system that the engine sh

re, rides to Medicine Lodge, a stockade on the Prairie, where he finds Captain Rickers and sixty border men, acting as militia under a regular commission from Governor Osborn. Who killed the four Osages? repeats Captain Rickers, in high contempt, we killed the Osages; and we mean to kill the vermin whenever we catch them in on Agent details of the fray. The captured ponies are at Medicine Lodge; the agent sees them there, and knows them by their Indian marks. Appeals are made to Governor Osborn in Topeka, but the governor will not interfere with his militia. Rickers, he says, is captain of a company of State militia, properly enrolled, and out on sgovernor, he answers, the date of this commission. Is it not the fact that Captain Rickers' commission is dated ten days after the massacre near Medicine Lodge? Osborn only smiles. Who cares for dates and signatures when they are dealing with such savages as Grey Eagle? Adelaide and Julia Germain are safe within the lines of

with him. Reynolds's last call for help had gone through me back on the Emmittsburg and Taneytown roads, to Barlow, Schurz, and Steinwehr. The new orders were carried to them again by Captain Hall to Schurz and to the reserve artillery under Major Osborn; by Captain Pearson to Barlow; then on to Sickles, ordering him up from Emmittsburg. Thence the news was borne to General Meade at Taneytown. A message was also sent to General Slocum, who was my senior. He was, judging from Meade's orders by this time at or near the two taverns. Under my orders Osborn's batteries were placed on the Cemetery Ridge and some of them covered by small epaulements. General Steinwehr's division I put in reserve on the same heights and near the Baltimore pike. Dilger's Ohio battery preceded the corps, and soon after Wheeler's, the two passing through the town at a trot, to take their places on the right of the First Corps. Schurz ordered General Schimmelfennig (who had Schurz's division now) to ad

before I could tell where the assault was made, our men and the Confederates came tumbling back together. Quickly they were among the intrenched batteries of Major Osborn, whose fire was intended strongly to support that bastioned front of the cemetery. Schurz and I were standing near, side by side. At my request he faced Coloigade on its right and Pettigrew's six brigades on its left. On our side, Hunt had arranged the artillery into four divisions: 1. On Cemetery Heights, under Osborn, having a large sweep of the front and right of my positions, 50 cannon. 2. Hazzard had 30 finely located close to the crest near Zeigler's Grove. 3. McGiloo high nor too low, and the projectiles were showered upon the space between Zeigler's Grove and Little Round Top about the center of our line. But as soon as Osborn set his guns in play from the cemetery, and McGilvery had opened up his forty pieces from Little Round Top, the Confederate artillerists undertook to give blow fo
