There were two F e d e r a l colonels- wounded at Bull Bnn while leading brigades, two regimental colonels killed :uid four wounded. Colonel Cameron of the Seventy- ninth Highlanders was killed hi a charge. Colonel John S. Slocnm of the Second Rhode Island was killed. By n confusion of names the dispatches placed Colonel H, W. Slocum of the Twenty- aeveath New York among the killed. ^Northern papers published his obituary, nnd he had the unique erperifcnco of leading it as he lay in the hospital with a wounded thigh. Slocum. Wood of the Fourteenth Brooklyn, Marston of the first Rhode Island and Corcoran of the Strty-ninth were the wounded colonels, leading regiments. Colonels David Hunter and Orlando B. Wilcor -were ·wounded at the head of brigades. 'Wilcox was captured by the enemy. Corco- xan also fell into tho hands of the enemy and was condemned to death in retaliation for executions threatened by the Federal government If the Hoed ?hcd in n battle tnny be taken as evidence of good fighting, -there was desperate -work at Bull Run. The Confederates mustered less than SO,000 men and lost 1,909 killed and irounded. On the Federal side less than 17,000 actually took part, and of thest J,5S4 were killed and wounded. LIO!?S OP THE It was the current hA-i-rl H- notion long after iSAI US, g u jj j^^yj t j jat ^jjp^j commands had donfrthe principal execution on that field. The Black Horse caval- xy and Louisiana Tigers bore off the honors on. the southern side, the Irish Sixty- ninth on the northern. The Tigers and -the Black Horse nders dropped out of notice as Che war -waxed hot, bat not so tbe Sixty-ninth. The gallant Irishmen eerred that day as militia volunteers for three months. They made a spirited charge at a crisis in the fight and lost the second highest number in tolled of the northern regiments--33. Colonel Corcoran was -wounded and captured, .fee lieutenant colonel killed. One of the companies in tho Sixtv- xtinth \vore zouave uniforms. The men had been recruited by Thomas Francis Xeagher, an enthusiastic Irish patriot They 'were conspicuous at Bull Run on account of their gaudy colors, but not less so by their fighting. One of the aoaavts, John D. Keefe, brought the green fiag of the regiment from the fold after battling for its poss*s«im. The regular color bearer had been shot lcrwrt, and Keefe seized the staff. He ·was vrounded ·while keeping it aloft, and two Confederates attacked him to taie the pnze fcom his hands. They tore his musket from his grasp, but, like most zouaves, he carried a revolver in his belt Pulling that, he shot down coe ·nrmiifim and made the other pne- CAcE. The zouaves were known as the lieagher guards. Captain Meaghex led ·fee regiment home, and at once recruited itfjr three years, A brigade of Irishmen soon took the field, led by Meagher.

A fearful slaughter took place at Collier's Mill, where Hoxl'« imperninn pnldierq rnshetl into an jingle in Thomas' line between the divisions of Ward and Geary. Geary'ts batteries mowed them down with ciuiistcr, nnd hrs infiinfry poured in a deadly fire from the front and both flunks.

In the attack of the 22d the Confederates znsdo a night march of 15 miles and took the wrps of McPherson by surprise. McPherson fell that day while trying to form his lines to meet the onslaught. Passing McPherson'a corps, the Confederates swept on to attack Blair. Moving down the -works en both sides, they assailed Force oa the bill both from front and rear. At times tho defenders of the height fought back to back. Lake bees robbed of their hive, the Confederates swarmed around the hill, surging up in front, only to be hurled hack, and from the rear to share the same fate. The attacks front and rear were repeated three times, and 4Eacii time repulsed. Finally a column ttt the enemy, sweeping down the line and carrying everything before it, batteries and all. reached the hill. In meeting this last assault the Sixteenth aad Twelfth Wisconsin changed direction to tbe left.

"David was SO years old when he bo- gnn to relun, and he reigned 40 ywire." It is good that n man hliould lx)th hope and quietly wait for tho Buh.iiloa of tho Lord (i^iu. ill, ^/, ..^: D-.:! La: rs:;i-='.'.v waiteil umny years. Consider tho long years of waiting of Abraham. Joteph, the slnvo and priwjner; Moses, tho shepherd. See tho Lord Ji-sus pntieutly waiting at Nazareth subject to Mary nnd Joseph till lie was 30 years of age (Lnko if, 51; ill, ^3), nnd If ever tempted to become faint and weary consider Hun (Heb. sit, 3). 6. "In Hobron ho reigned over Judali seven years nod sis months, and in Jerusalem ho reigned thirty aud three ywirs over all Israel and Judah." The kingdom over ivhiuh the iron of David shall rule must include all Israel. Thoy shall be gathered from all uauons nnd bu one nation in tho land upon the mountains of Israel, and the. sanctuary of the Lord shall be in tho midst, of them forevermore (Ezek. xxsvii. 31-2). Then shall Jerusalem be the throno of tho liurd, and all nations bo gathered into it to the numo of the Lord to Jerusalem (Jer. ill, IT). 0. "David cannot como in hither." Thus thought and spake tho Jebusites, who formerly inhabited Jerusalem- Jehus was n former name of Jerusalem (I Chron. xi, 4), and the children of Benjamin, instead of driving out thi .Tebusites, allowed them to dwell with them in Jerusalem (Judges!, 21). Sue also Joshua xv, 63. If tho Jcbusitus may represent to us tbe old things in us before Christ; comes in, wo seu hero tho danger of in nny -way tolerating them, lost they get tho mastery. 7. "Xovcrthelrss David took tbo stronghold of Zlon. Tho same Is the city of David." This was tbe southwest hill of Jerusalem, tho older and higher part of tbe city. Another hill in the city -was called iloriah, and on this bill tho temple was builded (n Chron. Ui, 2). Here was tbo thrashing floor of Araunah, and here, long before, had Abraham offered up Isaac. 8. 9. "So David SWelfc in tbo fort and colled it the city of David. ' ' David offered. tbe chief captaincy to whoever would first smite tbe Jcbusites, aud tbe successful man was his own sister's son, Joab, tbo son of Zerniah d Chron. 3d, 6; 2-16X Ixotbing can stand before a man in whom God is. One such shall cbaso 1,000, and two put 10,000 to flight (Dent xxxli, 80). We think of Caleb, who asked for Hebron, wbare tbe giants were, and of David when be glow Goliath. Although David dwelt in this visible fort, he knew of and dwelt in a much stronger one, invisible to men, for be was wont to sing, "Tbo Lord is my rock and my fortroat, and my deliverer, Aly God, my strength, in whom I will trust" (Ps. xviil, 8). 10. "And David went on and grew great, and tbe Lord God of Hosts was with him." Tbe margin has "going and growing." In I Cbron. xi, 9, it is written, "So David waxed greater and greater," or, in the margin, "went in going and increasing." Tbe R. V. has in both warts, "David waxed greater and greater." The reason is that "the Lord was with him." It seems to me Increasingly clear that tbe promise, "I nmwith you, "or "I will be with you," is about the greatest that God can give us. See Ex. lii, 12; Ir, IS; Gen. xxvlli, 15; Joshua i, 6: Judg. vi, 16; Jer. 1,8, 19; Isa. xli, 10; Math xsvHI. 90. etc. 11, 13. "And Dnvid perceived that tbo Lord luvd established him king over Israel and that fie had exalted hi? kingdom' for His people Israel s sake," Tbe growth of David's kingdom nnd ite establishment is typical of tbe kingdom of tbe son of David, of whore it is written, "Of the increase of bis government and peace there shnll bo no end, upon tbe throne of David and upon His kingdom, to order it and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth oven forever" (Isa. tt, 7). Hiram, king of Tyre, witbbiscar- penters ami masons build-ng a houso for David, makc« us think of tbe time when the wealth of all nations shall come unto Israel and serve h?r (Isa. Ix, 3, 5. 11, 12), when AH kings shall fall down before bar King and aU nations scree Him (Ps. lull, 11). Tbe same Lord who previously established Sjunuel as His prophet (I Sam. lii, 20) nvtr cnablishre David as His king. The recip« for being established is found in II CLroii. is. ;o, "B^Ievc lo the Lcr£ your God; so shall ye be established." The oppostc is seen in Isa. vii, 9. The word for us is.

Tho inotivts which impelled Constantino to tliis momentons step ·were donbtlctjs complex. Since the time of Trajaii Rome had not been the constant residence of the emperors, except of Antoninus Pius, nor the regular seat of government- Since the time of Diocle- tian Bonio had leen abandoned AS the official center of the empire, ilanv places east of it had been tried, and Coii- etantine, when resolved on the great change, seriously contemplated two, if not three, other eitts. It had lone bet u agreed that the imperial s«it muse be transferred toward tho east, and there ·was an instinctive sense that the valley of the Tiber was no longer safe from tho incessant onward march of the Ten- tonic nations in arms. The tendency was to get somewhere south cf the Danube and within reach of Asia Minor and the Euphrates. The greater chiefs had all felt that the empire must be recast, both politically and spiritually. By the fourth century it ·was clear that the empire must break ·with the rooted prejudices that surrounded the senate of Borne and the gods of the capitoL And Constantine, the half conscious and half convinced agent of the great change -- the change from the aucienr world to the modern ·world, from polytheism to Christianity -- saw in die church and bishop of Rome a power winch \vouM never be his creature, Dante tells us that " Ciesar became a Greek iu order to give place to the Roman pastor. " There is much in this, but it is iioc the whole truth, for Casai might hare become a Spaniard, or a Gaul, or an Iliynuu. Dante uiigllt have added that Caesar became an oriental in order to give place to the Goth- Constantinople from the first \\ras a Christian city, with an orthodox church, but it was a church that was from the first a department of the state. -- Fortnightly Review. Paid For tbe Pleasure. During a journey of the Emperor Jc- scph II to Italy the wheels of his coach broke down on the road, so that it was with diffionlty that he reached a small · village at a short distance. On his arrival there his majesty got out at the door of the only blacksmith shop in the town and desired hJTp -to repair the ·whuel ·without delay. ''That I would do willingly, " replied the smith, "but it being holiday all my men are at church. The boy who' blows the bellows it not at home. " "An excellent method then presents of warming oneself," replied the emperor, "who was unknown to the smith, and he set about blowing the bellows ·while the blacksmith forged the iron. The wheel being repaired, 0 sols were demanded for the job, bm the emperor gave 6 ducats. The blacksmith returned them to the traveler, saying, "Sir, yon have made a mistake, and, instead of 6 sols, have given me 6 pieces of gold which no one in the village can change. " "Change them when you :an," said the emperor, stepping into On carriage. "Ar emperor should pay fir such a pleasure as that of blowing the Allows *' Summer Vacation Tonrn. The Baltimore Ohio R. R.
