IN GEORGIA WITH SHEMAN Memoirs of Historical March of the Union Army. Continuation of sketch of Sherman's historical march fom AUaLta to the sea, as taken from a diary kept by J. 8. Eckles, a pioueer of this city: Nov. 29tb. For qome reason uu- known to me, we lay all day in camp. The First and Second brigades went ahead some distance to support Kil- patriok and fortified themselves. The cavalry report that they captured a train of cars at Waynesboro and destroyed the depot, but found more force than they could contend with and sent for reinforcements. Wn are now within 111 miles of Savannah and 45 of Augusta. The enemy say that we shall starve in the heart of Georgia. The papers advise the citizens to take and destroy everything eatable in our line of march, but said citizens do not seem to be taking any such foolish advice. Some of them, however, run away when no one pursueth, leaving us their produce. The weather is beautiful and the sun is setting clear. The boys are cooking supper and four or five Ethiops are dancing and patting juber all to fits. Nov. 30th. Lay still in camp till noon with no events of ipiportance transpiring. While cooking dinner we heard lively skirmishing to the north of us which proved to be an attack on a foraging party. The long roll was beat in camp and our regiment was ordered out. So we dropped the dinner and were ready in a few minutes and marohed out to the protection of a mill that our troops were runnine. On arriving at the mill we built up some rail barricades and settled down to cook dinner over again as contentedly as if that spot was to be our earthly abode. The skirmishing had ceased and we received orders to remain at that post till morning, so that day passed. The belief is that the Army of the Tennessee is moving on Savannah while we are probably threatening Augusta and leaving the enemy in some doubt as to where the blow will fall. But I am anticipating. Let events record themselves. Weather warm and looks like rain. Deo. 1st. Remained at the mill till near noon, when orders came for us to be ready as there was a general movement of the 14th Army Corps. We fell in with our brigade—the third — as it passed and marched eastward on the road to Waynesboro. We had not moved more than a mile till our advance routed some Confederate cavalry, losing three meu. The enemy lost an officer killed. After this little flght there was no further interruption to our advance - till we camped. Our division is alone on this road with Kilpatriok, the first and second having gone on -another road with the train. Deo. 2nd With our brigade in advance we started out early with the prospect of a good day's march. About noon, at the crossing of a creek, we came up with the enemy again, where they disputed our passage. Part of the brigade was deployed and part lay in reserve. Ours was in reserve. For a few minutes the firing was quite heavy aud the balls whistled over in the old fashion, but a few companies of cavalry in aid of the infantry charged over the hill and drovo them, while the bauds commended playing their liveliest strains. I did uot hear of anyone being hurt on our side. One dead Confederate was found and one wounded one fell into our possession, Quiet was restored and wo proceeded a few miles to camp, having made about twelve miles. Darkness closes in. Continued next week. Monday Afternoon Club. A crowded house greeted the always popular cooking demonstration by Mrs. Knapp of Los Angeles nt the meeting of the Monday Afternoon Club this week. The subject taken was "School and Picnic Lunches." A large variety of toothsome dainties were prepared by Mrs. Knapp and her corps of willing assistants, and tasted .by everyone. The favorites were sandwiches of moistened cheese nnd chopped nuts, and "Quick Swedish Rolls," made as follows: flour, 2 cups; baking powder, 2 or 3 teaspoons; salt, three-fourths lene, 2 tablespoons cup. Roll rather with two or three tablespoons sugar and half cnp of currants. Roll up like jellycake. Cut into slices one inch thick and bake in hot oven about ten minutes. The meeting next Monday will be devoted to India. Mme. Hannie van Vliet, w'uo lived there many years, will exhibit her curios. teaspoon; cotto- milk, two-thirds thin.
