A \Vo*A *o* the fcegttlftfS Tfho Setted Dating the Wftr — Recollection* of Sherman—Mcl.ane at Valley Forge— She Gets There. Entitled. James Mahe? Writes the National Tribune in behalf of the regulars, as follows: In a recent issue of the Tribune Comrade H. J. McGivern comments upon the regular officers as regards their indorsement of detached volunteers for congressional medals of honor. His remarks are not only well timed, but true. The battery cited (B, 4th U. S.) as is shown on the records, lost more men during the war than any other battery, either regular or volunteer. And I am proud to state that I not only served in that famous battery during the war, but'before and after. I enlisted in 1850, and partook of the famous 1,000-mile overland march from Leaven worth to Salt Lake City; and during the Mormon and Indian wars fought tho wily and treacherous redskins. When the tocsin was sounded and hundreds of officers who had been schooled and fed at tho government's expense discarded their side-arms and trampled their commissions in the mud to flock to the standard of secession, the privates to a man rallied to the preservation of "Old Glory." I am one oE the latter. I served during the entire war, re-enlisting in front of Petersburg, and n,o-ain re-enlisting for a third term in Company K. Third U. S. I took part in every battle and skirmish in t*he army of the Potomac, and can truthfully state that, outside of General John Gibbon and Captain James Stuart, I am one of the three only now living who came from the West with the aforesaid officers and served during the entire war; C. Henry Moore, of Philadelphia, and Richard L. Tea, retired as a private, and now living at Whipple Barracks, Arizona, being the others who stood to the guns of, as we believe, the best battery ever formed before and during the entire war. Comrade McGivern deserves the thanks of uhe old regulars for the interest taken in their behalf, and I will here state that if medals for bravery are to bs given to volunteers we certainly are also deserving of the same, for we not only fought through the war, but before and after on the frontiers. Johnny Cook, who has recently received a medal, served only through part of .the war, as did also John Johnston and Billy Hogarty, volunteers, who each lost an. arm. We certainly could not all lose arms and legs, for had such been the" case •Mie war would soon have ceased. I will place ray record as a soldier against any man living, without fear. And now one word for Comrade McGivern, who served during tha last two campaigns of the war. I remember his giving to Lieutenant Voss, then in command of the battery, a letter found near thcs battery at Camp Bailey, Bladensburg, which exposed a plot to steal ammunition to be used to blow up the headquarters tent and said lieutenant for some imaginary wrong. That may not be called bravery, but it certainly is worthy of mention, as in doing so he not only prevented a foul and inhuman aet, but without doubt saved the life of Lieutenant Voss. Honor to whom honor is due is my maxim. That your many readers may not think me egotistical, and that my record will meet the approval of every old soldier who reads this, I again claim that tho survivors of old B, 4th U.S., are without doubt entitled to vnedals of honor. self, they ^onld t* a*tyt*h«fiS tfcftl he might point to.

He had his humorous side With them, too. When the army reached Goldsboro half the men Were in rags. One day a division was ordered to march past him in review. The meii were bare-legged and ragged, some of them almost hatless. . "Only look at the poor fellows with their bare legs," said an officer at the general's side, sympathiz'mgly. "Splendid legs," cried the general with a twinkle in his eye, "splendid legs. Would give two of mine for any one of them."—McClure's Magazine.

He fired at the foremost of them and ran. Before him was an open field about fifty rods across, bounded by an old bushy retreat tho soldier started, a half dozen horsemen after him. Fortunately for the fugitive, the rains had softened the soil, and the horses plumped through the turf so badly that pursuit was slow. A pistol ball passed through the runner's hat, but he reached the fence, and wit?- one bound landed on tht top, intending to give a long spring ahead, biit the old fence crumbled beneath his weight and down ho went. But luck favored him again, for a hog had rooted out a gutter at this place and at the moment was lying in it. Tho soldier fell plump into the hole and the frightened hog uttered one squeal and scampered into the underbrush, leaving the newcomer in possession of the wallow and buried under the debris of the fence. A minute more and up dashed tho horsemen. Hearing the rustle of the fleeing hog in the bushes, they supposed it to be the picket,.and dashed through the gap in the fence and hastened on. When they were well out of sight the fugitive crawled out from the mudhole and ran back to camp. The following day one of the same horsemen was taken a prisoner. Our hero.recognized him at once. "li.say," he asked, "did you catch that hog yesterday?" "We did that," retorted 'the prisoner, "but it wasn't the one we were after!"—N. Y. Advertiser. BROOKLYN. Sept. 16.—Hot. !)r. Tal- ttiag-e, who is still absent on his f-ound- the-Wofld tour, has selected for his sermon through the press for to-day: "Holy Compulsion," the text being Lvhe i 4 : 23: "And compel them-to come in." The plainest pebple itt our day nave luxuries which the king* and queens of olden times never imagined, I walked up abd doWli the stairS of Holyrood palace—a palace that was considered ohe of the wonders of the world—and I said, 'Can it be possible that this is all there \vhs of this re* puted wonderful place?'* And this is the case in many other instances. There are fruits" in '.Westdhester county and on Long Island farms far better than the pomegranates and apricots of Bible times. Through all the ages there have been scenes of festivity, and the wealthy man of my text plans a great entertainment, and invites his friends. If one builds a a beautiful home, he Wants his ac- one buys an exquisite picture, he wants his friends to come and appreciate it; and it Was a laudable thing when the wealthy man of my text, hnppy himself, wanted to make other people happy. And so tho invitations went out; but something went very much wrong. You can imagine the embarrassment of any one who has Despornto Troatiueiit. During the revolutionary war, the troops under Colonel McLane's command were suffering for provisions and clothing, and congress had been repeatedly petitioned for that relief which it was not in its power to bestow. Under these circumstances, Colonel McLane paraded his band of suffering soldiers, who were about going into winter quarters at Valley Forge, and addressed them as follosvs: "Fellow-soldiers, you have served your country faithfully and truly. We have fought hai'd fights together against a. hard enemy. You are in a bad way for comfortable clothes, and it almost makes mo cry to see you •iin eking yoitr half-frozen, bloody Vet on the cold ground. But con;/ can't help it, nor can I. Now, il' ;my of you want to return home, to leave the army at such a time as this, you can go. "Let tliose who would like to go stop out four paces in front. j} u t__the first man who steps out— if I don't shoot him, my nams is not McLane!" It is needless to acid that not a single "volunteer for home" was to bo found in the ranks,— Argonaut. _ _ _ jiceoUeotlons of Sherwan, Sherman shared all the privations and hardships of tho common soldier. He slept iu his uniform every night of the whole campaign Sometimes we did not get into camp till midnight. I think every inaw in the army knew the general's face, and thousands spoke with him personally. The fa- of the troops at tiwos was Will tho "War JTnrt? This question was answered by a little miss at one of the school examinations in Troy, in a manner that did credit to her intelligence and loyalty —her head and heart. After the exercises of the afternoon had concluded, the principal stated that he should bs pleased if the. committee would examine the class in reference to matters of recant history/such as tho events of the present war—to show that they kept their eyes and ears open, and were posted in matters transpiring around them. One of the committee said to the president of the board of education, who was conducting the exercises, "Ask 'em when the war will end. Guess that will puzzle 'em." Mr. Kemp, in his blandest tones, said to the class: "It is asked, by a visitor, 'when this war will end.' Can any of you an- j swer the question?" j Up went a show of hands, as at least , fifteen boys and girls manifested a j willingness to solve the problem that fetch him statesmen, financiers and politiciana weie supposed to have puzzled over in vain. "You may answer," said President Kemp to a bright-eyed little girl near him: "When will the war end?" Rising from her seat, the little patriot, in a clear unfaltering voice, with enthusiasm flashing from her eye, answered; "When the rebels lay down their arras and sue for peace!" The gentleman who had suggested the inquiry said. "I guess we won't have any more questions." "We are all loyal in this school," was the comment' of the principal, echoed by the large audience present—American Tribune. provided a grand feast when he finds out that the guests invited do not intend to come. There is nothing that so provokes the master of the feast as that. , t Well, these people invited to this great banquet of the text made most frivolous excuses. The fact was, I suppose, that some of them were offended that this man had succeeded so much better in the world than they had. There are people in all occupations and professions who consider it a wrong to them that anybody else _ is advanced. I suppose these people invited to the feast said among themselves, "We are not going to administer to that man's vanity, he is proud enough now; we won't go; beside : that, we could all give parties if we j made our money the way that man | makes his." j So'r.'hen the messengers went out with the invitations there was aunani- •• mous refusal. One man said, "Oh, I 1 have bought a farm,and I must'go and ! look at it!" He was a land speculator, ! and had no business to buy land until he knew about it. A frivolous excuse. Another man said, "I have bought five yoke of oxen." The probability is he was a speculator in live stock. He ought to have known about the oxen before he bought them. Beside that, if he had been very anxious to get to the feast, he could have hooked them up and driven them on the read there.

Now, my brothers and sisters —for I have a right .to call you also— I know some people look back on their ancestral line, and they see they are descended from the Puritans or Huguenots, and they rejoice in that; but I look back on my ancestral line, and I see therein such a mingling and mixture of the blood of all. nationalities that I feel akin to all the world, and by the blood of the Son of God, who died for all people.

We must take care how we give the invitation. My Christian friends, I think some times we have just gone opposite to Christ's command, and we have compelled people to stay out Some times our elaborated instructions have been the hindrance.

He was found in the streets of Vienna, playing liis violin, but after a while his hand became feeble and tremulous, and he k could no more make music. One day, while he sat there weeping, a man passed along and said, "My friend, you are too old and too feeble; your violin;" and he took the man's violin, and began to discourse most exquisite music, and the people gathered around in larger and larger multitudes, and the aged man held his hat, and the coin poured in and poured in until the hat was full. "Now," said the man who played the violin, "put that coin, in your pockets." The coin... was put in tne old man's pockets. Then he held his hat, again, and the violinist played more sweetly than ever, and played until some of the people wept and^some shouted. And again the hat was ; filled with coin. Then the violinist dropped the instrument and passed off, and the whisper went, '.'Who is it? who is it?" and some one just .entering the crowd said, "Why. th at is Bucher, the g,rea|t vio-, linist, known all .through the realm; yes, that is the great violinist."

Oh, my friends, it requires no acuteness on my part, or on your part, to see in all this affair that religion is a banquet, The table was set in Palestine a good many years ago, and the disciples gathered around it, and they thought they would have a good time all by themselves, but while they f=at by Ihe table the leaves began to grow and spread, and one leaf went to the east and another leaf went to the west, until the whole earth was cov' ered up with them, and the clusters from the heavenly vineyard were piled up on the board, and the trwm* pets and harps of eternity made up the orchestra, and as this wipe oi Gpfl is pressed to the Mps of a sipping, bleeding, sufferipg, dying, groaning world, a voice breaks from the heavens, saying, "Drink, 0 fiends; yea, drink,, 0 beloved!" 0 b)ess.ed kord Jesus, the best friend I ever had, the best friend any wjan eyey was there ever j?ue» a taWe? there evey such a banquet?

What do they care about the hypostatic union 01^ the difference between sub-lapsarian and supra-lapsarian? What do _they care for your profound explanations, clear as a London fog? When a man is drowning he does not want you to stand by the dock and describe the nature of the water into Avhich he has fallen, and tell him there are two parts hydrogen gas and one of oxygen gas, within common density of thirty- nine Fahrenheit, turning to steam under a common atmospheric pressure of two hundred and twelve. He does not want a chemical lecture on water; he wants a rope. Oh my friends, the curse of God on the church, it' seems to me, in this day, is metaphysics. We speak in an unknown tongue in our Sabbath schools, and in our religious assemblages, and in our pulpits, and how can people be saved unless they understand us? We put on our official powns, and we think the two silk balloons flapping at the elobws of a pv*A-ch-ev give him great sanctity.
