I shall relate my own indiridoal experience and observationwhat I personally aaw and beard of one fiercely fongbt battle one memorable in the history of the war my first passing Into and through its flame of lira. A soldier's first battle in war does not always coma at the appointed looked for boor. Many of tba volunteers went to tba front, expecting to whip oat the fight the next morning after arrivel either before or after breakfast then to return noma crowned with immortal honors. Bat with thousands many weary months elapsed before the opportunity of meeting tba foa came in real earnest, and when it did come countless thousand were not expecting it After my enlistment as a soldier I had not long to wait tbe coming oi the fight e e a a Night had enveloped the camp, and I was dreaming of sonny fields, of smiling meadows, of a happy home of mother, and all that was near and dear to a human heart Bat the destroying angel came, and all vanished into the realm of sweetened shadow. For a comrade stood beside me with his hand on my bosom. As he leaned over toward my ear I beard him say tremulously the man's heart in a flut ter of emotioni , "Wake nnl They are advancing!" Was there the line on his lips that made me think instantaneously of the line: n ae Whinperins with white lips, "The foe they come! wry come: The first beams of the full morning were penciling the orient sky, and the rays fell upon a group of half a dozen anxious faces gathered around the ad jutant s tent Two horses were ther- eone with drooping head and limb at at rest; another was panting heavily and reeking with smoke 113 the courier still sat on him. The couiHiandiu officer was reading a note, h.vtily scratched in pencil, under starlight .uone. The officer was en tltahuhillc. Yet I heard bitn speak hurriedly and anxiously to the bugler just called up: "Sound reveille at once, and boots and saddles immediately afterward." Turn ing around he added, addressing his servant, "Saddle my Lorse at once, William." Strange it is what a magnetic influ ence, as it were, that will pervade a mass or men in the hour of danger and duty. Three minutes had not elapsed after the sounds of the last bugle blow had thrilled the camp till the squadrons were forming. "Move tho column down the road, captain," said the commanding officer, "I will gallop on and ascertain the real situation. We passed another and another courier, and then we came to a body of men hold ing horses behind a clump of trees. Just then there seemed to be an awful stillness in the morning air. suddenly broken by a noiso that sounded strange to me. "What is that?' I asked. "It is the rumbling of thoir artillery," said Gen. S. . Then he turned around, looking us all squarely in the face, and added in a confident tone, "Yes, they are advancing, and in force." There was no mistaking the sound that next greeted the ears, there was a clear, ringing report that punctuated the stillness, then there was another and another and the rifle cracks died away. They were the prelude of the battle soon to begin in earnest The clattering of horses' hoofs signaled another courier who dashed up, exclaim; ing in tones of feeling: "General, our dismounted men are skirmishing with them." We had heard the rifle shots half a mile away. and "Captain, gallop back, hurry up tbe infantry. Tell Capt Hart we need the artillery at once. He, too, is coming." Then there was another and another o ring of the clear voiced rifle, then a volley and a double shot or two, and then the guns were hushed for a moment Hen were seen hurrying from the direction of the sound. They were the dismounted skirmishers who were being driven back by the strong advance in front. Tbe men rallied with our column. "Fall in, men," cried a sergeant near me. "Fall in, men! fall in promptly. Fall in herer Oh, this terrible tongue of war! ' Fall in beret Fall in! This is' the most awful appeal that greets the fi ears. Fan in.

"Fall down and fire!" I heard an offi cer shout Alas! many had already fallen fallen to rise no more. Half a hundred men of a regiment stood up, and their irregular fire rattled mockingly along the fence. It was the work of but a moment, for a whole brigade in our front answered the fire of the little band. The battery rained grape and canister and shrapnel against the brigade, and now the battle had joined iu awful earnestness all along the line. Battery replied to battery, hostile brigade replied to hostile brigade, with sheets of iron and leaden fire. There were in the terrific din the hurtling shot, the screaming, screeching shell, and whi3tlmg whirr of tho deadly minie. Amid the roar were the shouts of com mand, the wailing shriek of the wounded an i the moanB of the dying. The hours were passing, the musketry was roaring with an unbroken note, the batteries were bellowing at each other, when suddenly there was a deep, dull thud a mighty force which at once .shook the whole battlefield. Two heavily laden caissons were blown up simultaneously, Then there was another sound which could not be mistaken. There was a lull in the firing on our right, and the whole earth seemed to be laboring and Thousands stood listening groaning. " " araiu the noma ueu! Oh, it was the charge of the cavalry!

There were upward - of sixty caskets, nearly all receptacles of soldiers' bones. The reported reason for the removal is that the land whereon tba cemetery was located had been taken up by settlers, who show a disposition to level tho graves and plant their seed over the remains. Uncle Sam's guardians didn't relish this fdea, and lvnce the transfer. The Fourth cavalry, with the band, in full dress, and, aecou ferments, were at the depot to meet and conduct the mortuary procession to the cemetery at Fort Walla Walla, where the remains were reiuterred with military ceremonies.
