That silent spot, Alan! iuny weep,
Hejond Potomac's wave.
For there a Nation's heroes sleep.
The loyal ami the brave.
There undisturbed, in calm repose.
Their plans rind passions done.
Their battles fought, their triumphs
Their final victory won.
No clouds of smoke to dim the eye.
No roar of shot and shell
No onward march, no bo tie cry.
On plains where thousands fell
No war-like blast, or roll of drum,
No lonely watch to tread.
Ah ! generations, yet to come.
Shall praise tho fallen dead.
Year after year, now grand tho scene
By royal hands that's true.
Tho graves are strewn, with garlands
Of those who wore the blue
The thunder storms oi heaven may rave.
But under Hod's control,
Serene and calm, still rest the brave,
While endless ages roll.
Sleep on then, fallen comrades, sleep.
Your dreams of war are Mod.
The land you saved will sacred keep
The city of the dead.
Fascinated by Garibaldi.
(iaribaldi had faith in himself. His
volunteers had blind faith in their
leader. An order from him was never
questioned, and no one waited for an
explanation. "You are not to inquire
how you are to storm that position
you must go and do it," said he once,
on giving an order for an assault. The
position was taken. There was no
order or discipline in the army. His
fctaff officers were a motley, quaint
crew. His veterans were used to the
ritte and inured to hardships.
The raw recruits were in a shapeless
mass, marching in loose companies
under improvised officers, but indiffer-
ent to pay and long fasts; but so thor-
oughly had Garibaldi enslaved th^m
to his will that not one ever disputed
his orders or failed to attempt to do
what he said must be done.
All his stafl' officers were ready to
die with or for him. Veterans and re-
cruits cheerfully endured hunger and
long marches.if (Iaribaldi told tlieiu lie
would thereby bring them face to
face with the enemy.
In Home he called for "forty volun-
teers, wanted for an operation in
which half of them would ill re to be
killed, and the other half mortalIv
wounded." The whole battalion
rushed forward to offer themselves
and lots had to be drawn.
A word spoken by him in his <*le;ti .
ringing, silver voice, electrified the
dullest peasant who had served in the
ranks but for a few weeks. If he
called for men to follow him, officers
and men sprang up as if the ground
had brought them forth.
At the close ot the siege of Koine
there was a most vivid illustration of
what the writer of an article "ii (iari-
baldi in "B ographies of Kminent
Persons" calls "ihat glamour which
enslaved his volunteers' minds and
hearts to his will."
The assembly had voted to surrender
Rome to the French besiegers, (iari-
baldi made up his mind to leave the
city, and put forth this singular order
of the day:
"Whoever chooses to follow me will
be received among my own men. All
1 ask of them is :i heart full of love for
our country. They will get bread and
water when chance may supply them.
Whoever likes not this may remain be
hind. Once out of the gates of Home,
every step will be one step nearer to
Four thousand infantry and '.( «
horsemen, two thirds of what was left
of the defenders of Home, accepted
these eondit ons.
Story of General Sherman
Yes, Joseph 10. .Johnston had crossed
Pearl River on his retreat to the Fast
and it was known that Sherman would
evacuate Jackson and pursue him as
soon as possible. With great diflicuity
1 had secured from the Federal authori
ties the assurance that my cotton f t
tory would not be burned. But on
the night when the evaeuation was u
progress I learned from icliabh-
sources that a change had been made
in the orders and that the torch was
likely to be applied to the property
at any moment.
I resolved to seek an immei.'iulr in-
terview with (renera) Sherman him
self—entertaining, however, but slen-
der hopes —especially at such an un
timely hour, for it was past midnight
—of reaching the presence of the Fed
eral chief. I had little trouble in as
pertaining that liis headquarters were
in the residence in West Jackson,
and before many minutes had passed 1
waa at the front gat of the place
where, to my great surprise. I found
no guards to check my progress. The
house was quiet and un l ighted, so far
is I could discern. Somewhat puzzled
I paused for a minute or two and said
to myself: "Surely this is not the
headquarters of a great 1'nited States
But seeing no one to inquire of I
opened the gat •. went up to the houi>c
and on the porch. For some minutes
1 stood there listening, but I heard no
sound within nor was there any guard
to challenge my intrusion. Through
a shaded transom I caught tho rejec-
tion of u light. I tried the hill door
found it ajar, pushed it open and
stepped inside. The place was silent
—there was nothing to indicate occu-
pancy by the military.
"1 have come to the wrong house," I
I said. But observing that a dim light
was reflected through the half-open
door of a room opening into the hall, 1
advanced and entered the apartment.
| It had but a single occupant. He was
sleeping upon a lounge and my steps
aroused him. He turned over and
looked at me.
"What do you want?" he demanded?
"1 want to see Gen# W. T. Sher-
"I'm Gen. Sherman. What do you
1 plained as briefly us possible,
lie said shortly in substance that his
orders were to spare the factory—that
they would be obeyed, lie said that
ho wanted togo to sleep. He stretched
himself and shut his eyes, and 1 walked
out and returned up town. A few
hours later the factory was in ashes.
"And you say that (<eu. Sherman
| had no body guards?"
| "I say that I entered his bed room
and left it without being challenged.
In fact, without meeting a soul ex-
cept the General himself.
This remarkable incident was told in
(ireen's Hank, and the narrator was

; Stories of the blunders made by
green volunteers on guard duty are
always in order at the camp-fires of
j veterans of the civil war. At such an
I occasion recently a member of tho
Middle Tennessee Kcgiment, which
i was commanded by Col. Oillen, told
the following story:
i For a time we were stationed in tho
city of Nashville doing guard duty.
! There was a raw recruit in our ran its
j —an Irishman and a very good fellow
—whom we all liked. He was bound
to be a good soldier, and had the

' situation, and thought* it his duty to

' "Bunker Hill," said the man with a

at "present." and the citizen went on

In France in the seventeenth century
j the office of sentinel was a very sol-
«inn chargf*,and a part of the sentinel's
• iut. was to resent and punish any af-
front. The severity of the punish-
ment was in proportion to the high
j importance of his office. A French
historian relates an incident illustrat-
ive of this fact.
In 1022 M. tie Mar iliac rode away on
horseback from an audience with the
King. His horse stepped on .i senti-
nel's foot. The man struck the horse,
i who leaped forward and shook M. de
Mariilac in the saddle.
The rider turned and struck the sen-
tinel. The soldier belonged to the com-
pany of M de (loas. who, when he
heard of this, had him arrested and
imprisoned. He himself set out. sword
in hand, in search of M. do Mariilac to
demand satisfaction for an insult to
j his sentinel.
The King was informed of tho inci-
dent, and sent for M. do Ooas and M.
Jo Mariilac. He reprimanded l)o Mar-
iilac severely, told him that tho senti-
nel should have killed him, and for-
bade him to exercise his command as
chief marshal for six days.
The sentinel was tried before a coun-
cil o? war, and was sentenced as a pen-
alty for not killing I)o Mariilac to be
tortured by the strappado (that is, to
be hoisted by a rope to a beam and lot
fall). The King pardoned the man,
but M.ide (ioas would no4, have him in
liis company again.

While the annual reunions of the
Confederate veterans are being held
over the State, says the Haralson ((<a.)
Banner, there is a member of company

A certain eminent dernynian, wlie

that an experience of his own, in
years long gone by, taught him the

but ho had already a strong theolog-

fact that he didn't seem to be good

him that he hud not mistaken his catl-

the 11 treatment of the officers
and the difficulty of obtaining justice
drove the soldiers to suicide. He in-
sisted that an inquiry should be made
into all those cases, and that the bodies
should be handed over for examination
to medical men unconnected with tho
army. Herr Rebel, the socialist
deputy, then said: "In view of the
immunity which officers enjoy, wc are
not disposed to augment the number
of their victims by voting for the in-

troops asked for in the military bill

A ••Human Document."
The Mexican papers tell of a miset
ground with deep furi'otfs. ^ j named Moueckc, who
camo his employer from his work in
another part of tho farm and looked
at tho boy's work, and leaned up
against the fence and laughed until
he shook. Tho potato lield lsnl been
scraped and scalloped all over with
tho ridiculously irregular and wabbly
little ditches which Richard had
turned. There was not a clean,
straight furrow in the lot, the ground
looked as if an insane elephant had
tossod up the earth; tho furrows
were of all depths and at all dis-
tances from one another, for Richard
had driven the horso most of tho
time at a smart walk, and he
had beou too much occupied
with keeping up and maintaining a
precarious grasp upon the plow han-
dles to be ablo to pay any attention
to tho regularity or evenness-of his
work. Richard Vernon laughed, too,
as he stood and looked over the lield.
Ho wiped tho sweat from his brow
and looked very anxious at his em-
ployer. Thero was no chance for
regular work there; that was evident.
His laughter faded away, and thero
was a certain faint twitch in tho
corners of his mouth as tho boy said:
"1 guess you don't want any more
of my work sir?"
"Oh, yes—yes, I do,' said the farm- j
er. "Maybo 'taint your fault that
