Stanzas by Col. Bakor on his Scad Com

'A gentleman of St. Louis, a farmer friend of

lines from hta scrap book. They were written
to the memory of the ilvtfd of the Illinois Ilegl
merit, and will I rd (lli peculiar and sor
rowful Interest, shij' lllolr author now sleeps
Hid sleep of death. He littlo thought, when,

Whcro rults the ruhlng It to (Iraudc,
Here peacefully they sleep :
Far from their native Northern land,
Far from the friends who weep.
No rolling drum disturbs their rest,
Itcnentli the sandy rod
The mould Ilea heavy on each breast,
Tho spirit Is with (led,
They beard their oouulry's call, and camo
To Utile for her right ;
Kncli bosom tilled wllh mirllal llamo,
And kindling for the light.
Light was their mcufurrd footstep when
They moved to seek the foe. ',,
Alas! that hearts so firry, then,
Rhould toon be cold ami low.
Thry did not die In engcrjlrifc,
Upon a well-fought Held;
Not from the rid wound puurrd their lllo,
Whcro cowering fuemen yield.
,, Death's guiltily shade woa il.mly cait
Upon each manly brow
Hut cnlminil fearless to the last.
They sleep In silence now.
Vet shall a grateful country ghe
Her honors to Ihrlr name ;
In k'ndicd hearts Ihelrmimnry lives.
And history guard their fame.
Not unrcmcmliered do they sletp
lipon a foreign strand,
Though near their graves thy wild waves
Thou nulling IHn (.ramie.

WVsuiMiroN', Oct 23d. Tho full and tnie
ilnry of the battle near HarrUou's Island has
reuchul us wllhlu the last hour. Now comes
Ihe naked truth, In nil Its stunning mid distres
sing horrors. Col. linker's body 1ms Just arri
ved In town, guarded by a squad of Van Allen's
cavalry, and Is now lying In tho mansion of Col.
J. W. Webb. Capt. Francis G. Young of New
York, QunrtcrnuMcr of linker's Drlgade, came
up In command of Ihe sad cnvalcudc, accompa
nied by Major Smith or the Calllornla First.
IIiwlup obtained a turmlso of tho real position
of affairs, I had started for Inwards' Ferry this
eienlng, but meeting Iho procession, have re'

Involving tho lots of nearly one thousand men,
In killed, wounded and mining, and of many'
brave and skillful ofilccrsj and accompanUfi
by scenes of horrqr uncqualltd In nuy previous
battto of tho war.
On Sunday evening General filonc, being
persuaded that nq important force of tho enemy
remained nlon? Iho upper l'otomac, and In olw
jllcuco to orders from headquarters, commeBced
lilspauago of the river nt Harrison's Island.
The lMnt of Iraiitlt was about die miles above
Kdwsfda' Ferry, and nearly an equal dlttaoce
from Lccsburg. Tho Uland Is a low, fertile
strip of laud, several mllffln icagth, so dividing
llo river tli.it the Maryland cbaimel Is not a
furlong In whllb, and that ou the Virginia side
not mere than 20Q feet. Six companies of Ike

hear skirmishing shots on the bights, which
continued without much Intermission through
the morning. Kow we began to experience the
difficulty which was the chief cause of tho terri
ble, scenes which closed tho day.
No adequato aicana oftrniifporlatlon bad been
provided. It seemed nt If the column was ex
pected to walk across on tho water surface.
Nothing btlt one old scow, capable of liolillntr.
perhaps, forly men, appeared available on cither
side of (he Island. If tho Massachusetts men
had any oilier boats they wero not visible In the
morning. At lenglh'I discovered n largo scow
In the canal, nnd two hours were consumed In
getting it over into Ac Maryland channel. It
would hold about sixty men. Colonel Baker.

General Ilarvy and myself went with the first
load to the Island, and (hero tupcrlutendcd Ihe
transit of our men.
It was 12 u. before our first company lauded
nt the foot of tho buih-covcrcd prcclploo which
rises abruptly over ono hundred feet from the
river bed on the further side of the river. Four
houn mora had elapsed balorc tho Inst company
Imd landed. Sections of tho Second Ithodo
Islanifllnllcry, comprlrlng two howitzers, two
two field tnioolliborc-i, nnd one rlllrd gun, went
over with us, tho men drugging them up Ihe
hlglita wllh grtatdintcully and spirit.
At Ibis tlmo Irregular fighting was going on
above. It seems that Colonel Devcn had In the
morning moved with n tmnll dvtnchment In Ihe
direction of LceOmrg, shortly after his forces
h.td crossed, had advanced one mile, there met
Iho enemy's skirmishers In feeble force, nnd had
retired to tho brow of the bights. Before this
the Quartermaster of tho Masfachiictts loth
had gone alone to a point within n mile ol the
village, bad returned, crossed Iho river, and re
ported lo Gen, Stone that there wero no holllc
rorcea In that region. But after Col. Devon fell
back, his men vcre placed In a scml-clrcular
clrnrlug, or natural forest opening, covering
five or six norm, with Its base resting on the
edge of the bights, and tlunkid and fronted by
forests. The enemy, becoming bolder, advanc
ed In scattered parlies to tho edge nfthowood;,
and from ten a. m till four I-, si. kept up a ran
dom, annoying fire upon our men. Tho latter
sheltered tliemeltesus well as they could, lying
Just bctow tho rhl.'o, und uwnltul reinforce

We nrked Colonel Baker what he thought of
iitr.ilrs, Hu said that he thought we hud a good
poillloti ; could fitll back for shelter behind the
rldgc? "Vrs," af,o, "but what's In thoie
woods!" He answered: "1 think tho enemy
are conccaUd ou our right." A private had re
ported that Ihcro was no force on the left, but a
ila-p rnvlnc, bidden by the wood. Wo then
proposed sending tklrmlrhcrs lo mako a rccon
uotrnnco an the right, and Captain Markoc, Sec

liaulid upi)t the wrong place, aud afterward
seized by the cm my und spiked.
Whcu our sklrmbhlng companies had reached
Ihe edge of the w oeds, suddenly the enemy, hith
erto concealed, rose wllb a yell and fired a volley
thru began fighting In lliclr umul manner; first
giving n yell and volley, then leading and firing
at will for a few minutes, then ceasing an equal
limp, then filvlpg another yell nnd volley ; and
so on, pouring n murderous fire Into our Utile

woods around swarmed wllh Ihim. They Imd

The- enemy kept up their fire from the cliff

of the column surrendered ; but the rebels kept

many not drowned In Ibc river were shot In the
not of swimming. Night came on. At ft r. m.
nil of our band whose forluno It wus to return
had landid on Harrison Inland, nnd the fire from
the Virginia bights had ceased. Tho rebels
took nil our guns but one. When I left yester
day they shouted lo us, telling us to come over
nnd tnkc awny our dead sons of under a
flag of truce ; nnd had also mounted our own
guns on the bights, and warned us to leave the
Island In four hours. Tho cause of this sad
havoc was that wc had no proper means of

Baker, crime forward, and, choking with tears,
requct ted that the body might bo borne out by
n number of young soldiers, vbo bad rescued
it, at the peril of their lives, from tho hands of
tho enemy. When Baker full, It was found that
after he bad been pierced In front by six rifle
bulWs, the barbarous enemy had thrust two
bayonets Into the back of tho mutilated corpse.
Tho attempt wns then made to carry him off as
a trophy, but Ihese young heroes sprang to the
rescue of nil (hat remained to them of their
commander. They fought hand to hand wllb

rebels the Important Intelligent of Cul. Gar

victory, and talking confidently an the way of
marching onward to Iiutirllle.
In the meantime, reinforcements wero hur

them. Some picket firing occurred during
Saturday oud Sunday, with a nu, It Is be
lieved, of one man on each side. Monday
morning, the 21st, Jutt ihrec months after Hull
Hun, the battle commerced. The first, nnd
apparently the most determined ntloek, was
au attempt lo sclzo the " Winding Hladcs''
road. After being rcpultie at that point,
thry attempted to approach by the direct
London rond. Hut thry were met with such
resolution that they soon abandoned the rflurt.
Again they rallied to carry tlie corneal hill.
By this tlmo our reluforcemeiiti were all up
except the two Tennessee regiments that had
left Camp Dick Ilobinson the morning pre
vious, and by forced marches arrived nn ilia

destructive fh was opened upon them. It

without waiting to deliver their Sre. Our
victory was now complete. An attack at
