Pgg tlB lines of the tjttioh a r ttt y were closing 1 aroiind t*eters« btlrg 1 like a shroud of iron, when General Lee resolved to break and drive : back, if possible. To that end Ordered an attack in force to be j on General Grant's line of eir- %ttmvallatio& on July in, 1854, I 1 The point selected for assault was i the vicinity of an old country inn "the Yellow Tavern." order was that the attack .6\ould be made just before the dawn of day, the time most favorable for a surprise, "when deep sleep falloth on -ihad." It was the experience, how' ever, of many Confederate officers charged with the duty of attacking 1 in the gray of the morning 1 that it was difficult to bring 1 their troops into line at that early hour. Although they '. Were generally "but in the gristle and not yet hardened into the boue of < manhood," they were in one sense, at * least, not of the rising generation. 'Hence it was that General Johnston Hagood, whoso brigade of South Carolinians was assigned to the right of the attacking force found that daylight had broken before he could align his command. General Hagood was as true a soldier as ever drew a sword in '•< battle; to htm the path of duty was , the path of hono' 1 , and although he • saw that his-brigade was in plain view of the Union troops, who had already manned their...intrenchmeuts, he ordered it to advanca to the assault. It had to cross a spice of about 350 yards in width, which had an undulating surface, and the broken nature of the ground afforded some shelter until it debouched upon a level highway, within seventy yards of the works It then met with a terrific fire of artillery and rifles, but it was composed of seasoned veterans and never faltered. Where the dead fell the living stepped; and their leveled bay- ^..pnets, soon sparkled'-within twenty feet of tho line of intrenchmcnts. There the brigade came to an invol- 'tjntary halt, for before it lay a wide, " deep ditch, half full of water, which it had no means of crossing. Unable to advance, yet iinwilling- to retreat , without orders, every soldier delivered his hopeless fire with the energy of despair. As a merciful suggestion, no doubt prompted by admiration for a body of brave men, doomed otherwise to certain slaughter, the Union soldiers called out to them to surrender; but ; the call was Unheeded. At that deadly juncture a mounted officer was seen to emerge from the sally- port of an earth-work at a re-entering angle of the line of intrenchments, •nearly opposite to the center of the t brigade. He galloped up to the color bearer of the —— South Carolina i-egiment, and, holding out his right hand, demanded the surrender of the colors. • Although mounted, the uniform and,'shoulder. straps of the daring Union officer indicated that he ' was, a captaitf'xrf inTEanti-y, He was, apparently, about thirty years of age, ' with a noble and handsome face, and tall, heroic form. The color sergeant, seemingly dazed, or perhaps paralyzed b3' the sublime effrontery of the demand, surrendered the colors. The flag was especially dear to the regiment, for it had been presented by tho ladies of the district in which the regiment was raised, and it had AMQKAi IQWAy OOTOBim 1?* ;1^4 M'OlVKMKmW FLAG, SUl." borne aloft with honor on many ;J,}efJel4s, It was a state flag with South Carolina upon it, of tjiat which the igjlis , Paljpetto regiment in the -* —- way had plunted on the $!£ capital of Mexico, the p,flag, to wave tfcere e j nee " Carles.

The answer was, "Who are yod?" The general replied, "1 command this brigade, admire your.,-bravery. Give me the* Mag, afad yoto shall return an molested to your o-wn lines." Tho captain who haa furled the'ftag atid 'was holding it uptight, 'with the ferrule of the staff resting on the pommel of hi saddle, responded:' "General, you had better Surrender to me yourself. Look behind you.' 1 • The general looked to tho rear* and saw that a larga force which had sallied from the intrenehments on his left was moving to cut off his retreat, all other commands having retiree! from the fruitless assault. Turning to the defiant captain, he exclaimed: "Once more, sir, will you give up that flag?" The answer -was in a loud tone. "Never!" With tho'answer General Hagood flred, and the officer fell, shot through the breast. He still grasped the flagstaff as ho fell back ward, and it was wrested from his grasp. The general then mounted the horse and ordered a retreat, which was effected with a loss of nearly one- half of tho brigade. • Tho captured horse was killed on the retreat by a shot from the Union lines, and as he fell ho kicked out his heels, and, as if to auenge his fallen master, struck Dr. Taylor, the brigade surgeon, in the head, inflicting a wound from the effects of which he never entirely recovered. Often within the lines at Petersburg, around many a campfire, Confederate soldiers discussed the strange incident of the flag surrender at Yellow Tavern. How it was tha_t such a famous regiment should have'allowed its flag to be surrendered in battle to a force consisting of but one man, was most piizzling. The occult power of hypnotism might have furnished a solution, but it was then unheard of, and is still unknown to the art of war. All agreed, however, that no braver deed was overdone than that of the Yankee captain who fell, still grasping that flag. I was then a captain of engineers in the Confederate army. Sixteen years later General Hagood was tho honored chief magistrate of the state of'South Carolina. I was a circuit judge, and holding court at Columbia, and called on the governor at the capital to pay my respects. I found him highly elated, and he said to me as soon as [ was seated: I'You recollect that Federal officer that I was obliged to shoot in the battle of Yellow Tavern, to recover the flag? Well, thank heaven, I did not kill him! He \s still living. Hero is a letter that 1 have just received from him. Please read it." I read the letter with the deepest interest, of which tho following is a copy: COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa, Dec 4, 1383 GENERAL,JOHNSTONHAOOOD. Columbia, S. C GKNBUAL—It I am correctly informed, you arc the Confederate officer \yho shot mo in tho ri,'ht breast, in tho b-.utlb of Yellow Tuvern. The wound was Inflicted to recover from mo a regimental fla? which had boon surrendered to me by one. of your color-bear- prs. I hud apparently recovered entirely from it. but It hai troubled me for some time, and I now tlnd myself obliged to apply for a pension As I was within your lines and out of sight of my comrades when I was shot. I um obliged to request that you will aid me to prove that I received the wound in the line of my duty. You would do me a great favor if you will make affidavit statins the facts and forward it to mo. Please atatctalso that you have no interest In my claim. I am, general, yours respectfully, ' JAMES BAILEY, Late Captain'Fourth Iowa Volunteer Infantry. I ain unable to state tho entire contents of the affidavit, but I noted this paragraph: ' "Captain Bailey received the wound described while in the faithful discharge of his duty as a soldier. "His act was the bravest that I have ever known or read of-in military annals. Nor was it an act of mere inconsiderate rashness, for, in my deliberate judgment, had I not interposed as I did, my entire brigade of veterans might have surrendered to his single arm." In his letter inclosing the affidavit, Governor Hagood extended to Captain Bailey a most cordial invitation to visit South'Carolina as his guest, He assured him, of a most sincere welcome, and that he would be received by an escort of many thousands of ex-Confederate veterans, all now heartily loyal to the United States. He stated, further, that the flag with which Captain Bailey's wound was so honorably associated was still preserved, 'not as a hostile symbol, but as a souvenir of comradeship, and that he would be pleased to pjace it in his h&nds, and have him view it in the midst of friendly surroundings, Captain Bailey made a most soldierly reply, expressing his grateful appreciation of the invitation so cordially extended to hin^ to visit £puth Carolina as'the #u>4t of the governor.

Tal- tnage, who is still absent on his round- the-world tour, has selected as the subject of to-day's 'sermon, through the press: '"The Oarsmen Defeated. " Navigation in the Mediterranean sea always was perilous, especially so in early times. Vessels w.ere propelled partly by sail and partly by .oar. When, by reason of great stress of weather, it was necessary to reef the canvas or haul it in, then the vessel was entirely dependent upon the oars, sometime's twenty or thirty of them on cither side the vessel. You Would not venture outside your harbor with such a craft as my text finds Jonah sailing in; but he had not much choice of vessels. He was running away from the Lord; and when a man is running away from the Lord, he has to run very fast. God had told Jonah to go to Nineveh to preach about the' destruction of that city. Jonah disobeyed. That always makes rough water, whether in the Mediterranean or, the Atlantic, or the Pacific, or the Caspian sea. It is a very hard thing to scare sailors. I have seen them, when the brow of the vessel was almost under water, and they were walking the deck knee-deep in the surf, and the small boats by the side of the vessel had been crushed as small as kindlihg wood, whistling as though nothing had happened; ,but the Bible saj'S that these mariners of whom I speak were frightened. That which saitors call "a lump of a sea" had become a blinding, deafening, swamping fury. How mad the wind can get at the water, and the water can get at the wind, you do not know unless you have been spectators. I have in my house a piece of a sail of a ship, no larger than the palm of my hand. That piece of canvas was all that was left of the largest sail of the ship Greece that went into the storm 200 miles off Newfoundland. Oh, what a night that was! I suppose it was in some siich storm as this that Jonah was caught. He knew that the tempest was on his account, and he asked the sailors to throw him overboard. Sailors are a generous hearted race, and they resolved to make their escape, if possible, without resorting to such extreme measures. The sails arc of no use, and so they lay hold on their oars. I see the long bank of shining blades on- either Side of the vessel. Oh! how they did pull, the bronzed seamen, as they laid back into the oars. But rowing on the sea is very different from rowing upon a river; and as the vessel hoists, the oars skip the wave and miss • the stroke, and the tempest laughs to scorn the flying paddles. It is of no use, no use. There comes a wave that crashes tho last mast, and sweeps the oarsmen from their places, and tumbles everything in the confusion of impending shipwreck, or, as my text has it, "The men rowed hard to bring it to the land; but they could not; wherefore they cried unto the Lord." This scene is very suggestive to me, ind I pray God I may have grace and itrength enough to represent it intelligently to you. Years ago I preached a sermon on another phase of this very iubject, and I got a letter from Hous;ou, Texas, the writer saying that the reading of that sermon in London had ed him to God. And I received another etterfroin South Australia, saying that ;he reading of .that sermon in Australia lad brought several souls to Christ. 4nd then, I thought, why not take another phase of the same subject, for )erhaps that God who can I'aise in power that which is sown in weakness nay now, through another phase of the same siibject, bring salvation to the jeople who shall hear and salvation to ;he people who shall read, Men and vomen, who know how to pray, lay told of the Lord. God Almighty and vrestle for the blessing. Bishop Latimer would stop some- iiaes in the midst of his argument.and ;ay, -'Now, I will tell you a fable;" ind to-day I would like to bring the' cene of the text s^s an illustration of a most important religious truth, As hose Mediterranean oarsmen trying to )ripg Jonah ashore, were discomfited, have to tell you that they were not he only men who have broken down on their paddles, and have been obliged to call on tne Lord for help. I want to say that the unavailing efforts of those Mediterranean oarsmen h^ve a counter/part in the efforts we are making to bring souls to tho shore of safety and set their feet on tho Rock of Ages. You have a father, or mother, or husband, or wife, or child, or near friend, who is not a Christian. U'here have been times when you hav* been in agony about their salvation, jf minister of Christ, whose, wife was dying without any hope j n Jesus, walked the floor, wnmg his hands, cried bit- te/ly, &»d,6aid, "f believe I shall go jjjsaw, for J[ Jmow Blip is not prepared to meet God." And .there may have b,ee»4ayeof wknpss iu your bouse- When you feartsd it would be a/ Bi<&ne&; ajnfl bow closely you face of tho doctor as be ftt»d scrutinised the patient, ,§nd. 10$ thepu}se, and you followed tate isn't $ warn, dagger, trod B aid, is there, th,e * ianjK» *" ine snore, wne$ ,you arc s ,. baek.agaifi.. What shall'yoti do? down the oaf? dh, no! 1 do hot advise j that; but 1 do advise that you appeal to that God to whom the Mediterafleart oarsmen appealed—the God who could silence the tempest and bf teg the ship in safety to the port. I tell you, my friends, that there has got to be a good deal of praying before our families are brought to Christ. Ah! it is an awful thing to have half a household on one side the line, and the other part the household on Uie other side of the line! Two vessel's part on the Ocean of eternity, one going to the right and the other to the left—farther apart, andjjfarther apart—until the signals cease,to be recognized, and there are only two specks on the horizon, and then they are lost to sight forever! I have to tell you that the unavailing efforts of these Mediterranean oarsmen have a counterpart in the efforts some of us are making to bring our children to the shore of safety. There never were so many temptations for young people as there are now. The literary and the social influence, seem to be against their spiritual interests, Christ seems to be driven almost en tirely from the school and the plcasur able concourse, yet God knows how anxious we are of our children. AVe can not think of going into heaven without them. We do not want to leave this life while they are tossing on the waves of temptation and away from God. From which of them couli we consent to be eternally separated Would it be the sou? Would it be the daughter? Would it be the eldest? Would it be the youngest? Would it be the one that is well and stout, the one that is sick? Oh," hoar some parent saying to-night, "I have tried iny best to bring my children to Christ, I have laid hold of the oars until they bent in my grasp, and I have braced myself against the ribs of tho boat, and I have pulled for their eternal rescue; but I can't get them to Christ." Then I ask you to imitate the men of the text, and cry mightily unto God. We want more importune praying for children, such as the father indulged in when he had tried to bring his six sons to Christ, and they had wandered off into dissipation. Then he gotidown in his prayers, and said, "O, Uod! take a.way my life, if through that means my son may repent and be brought to Christ;" and the Lord startliiigly answered the prayer, and in a few weeks the father was taken away, and through the solemnity tho six sons fled unto God. Oh, that father could afford to die for tho eternal welfare of his children!. He rowed hard to bring them to the land, but could not, and then he cried unto the Lord. I wish I could put before rny un- pardonecl readers, their own helplessness. No human arm was ever strong enough to unlock the door of heaven. No foot was ever mighty enough to break the shackles of sin. No oarsman swarthy enough to-row himself into God's harbor. The wind iy against you. The tide is against you. Tho law is against you. Ten thousand corrupting influences arc against yoii. Helpless and undone. Not so helpless a sailor on his plank, mid-Atlantic. Not so helpless a traveler girded by twenty miles of praii-ie on flre. Prove it you say. I will prpve it. John vr : 44: "No man can come to mi-, except the Father which hath sent me 'draw him." But while. I have shown your helplessness, I want to put by the side of it the power and willingness of Christ to save you. I think it was in 1681! a vessel was bound for Portugal, but it was driven to pieces on an unfriendly coast. The captain had his son with him, and with the crew they wandered up the beach, and started on the long journey to find relief. After awhile the son fainted by raasou of hunger and tho length of the way. The captain said to the crew, "Can-y my boy forme on your shoulders." They carried him on; but the journey was long, that after awhile the crew fainted from hunger and from weariness, and could carry him no longer. Then the father rallied his almost wasted energy, and took up his own boy, and put him on his shoulder, and carried him on milo after mile, mile'after mile, until, overcome himself by hunger and weariness, he top fainted by the way. Tho boy lay down and died, an : d the father, just at the time rescue came to him, also perished, living only long enough to tell the story—sad story, indeed! But glory be. to God that Jesus Christ is able to take us up out of our shipwrecked and dying condition, and put us on the shoulder of his strength, and by the omnipotence of his gospel bear us on through all the journey of this life, and at last through the opening gates of heaven! He is .mighty to save, Though your sin be long and black, and inexcusable, and outrageous, the very moment you believe I will proclaim pardon—qui<?k, full, grand, un' 1 conditional, uncompromising, illiinit- able, infinite. Oh, the grace of God! I am overwhelmed when J come to think of it, Give me a thousand ladders, la&hed fast to each other, that 1 may scale the height- Let" the line run out with the Anchor until all the cables of tho eartih are exhausted, that we may touch the depth. Let the arcangel fly in circuit of eternal ages, in trying to sweep around, this theine. Oh, the grace of God! Jt is so jhjgb, It is so broad. It is so deep, Glory be to my Uod, ftia't wjiero man's oav gives out, God's arm Begins! WJiy wi}J ye co,rry ygw sins and, youy sorrows any loftgej 1 wjieu ChrM offers ta tajte th,eiR?

'I- teinemb'ei' thfct a vessel went to' pieces on the Bernrddas a' grea'tmany years' ag'o.- It bad" d vast treasure on board. But the vessel-being sunk, no effort'was iri&de to raise it. After 'many years had' 'passed) a company of adventurers went out from England, and after a long voyage they reached the place where the vessel was said to liave sunk. They got into a small boat and hovered over the place. Then the divers went down, and they broke through what looked like a 'limestone ciovering, and the treasures rolled out—what was found afterward to be, in American money, Worth $1,500,000, and the foundation of a great. business house. At that time the Whole work! rejoiced over what was called the luck of these adventurers. Oh, ye who have been rowing toward .the shore, and have not been able to reach it, I want to tel you to-night that your boat hoveiv over infinite treasure! All • the riche.. of God are at your feet. Treasurei that never fail, and crowns that neve: grow dim. Who will go down now and seek them? Who will dive for the pearl of great price? Who will be pre pared for life, for death, for judgment for the long eternity? See two hand? of blood stretched out toward thy soul as Jesus says, "Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and will give you-rest." HE AND SHE.
