ual cowardice is never to be imputed
to American troops. These men were
s brave as any that ever wore a uni
form and some of them performed
gotxl service afterward, but when they
went into this action they were raw
militia, a mere mob, and no mob can
stand against discipline, even though it
be but the discipline of the savage. -
Lincoln "Often Hungry."
The next day Whiteside moved with
nil possible celerity to the field of the
disaster and, finding no euemy, was
forced to co::tc::t himself Avith the mel
ancholy duty of burying the mutilated
and unsightly remains of the dead. The
army was now suffering for want of
provisions. The folly of the command
er in casting off his baggage train for
the forced march on Dixon, the extrav
agance and improvidence of the men
with their scanty rations, had exhaust
ed the resources of the quartermasters, I
and. except in the messes of the most '
careful and experienced, the camp was
nearly destitute of food. The majority
had been living on parched corn and
coffee for two or three days.
"I can truly say I was often hungry,"
iaid Captain Lincoln, reviewing the
events of this campaign. He was,
doubtless, as destitute and wretched as
the rest, but he was patient, quiet and
resolute, nuuger brought with it a dis
contented and mutinous spirit The
men complained bitterly of all they had
been made to endure and clamored
loudly for a general discharge. But
Captain Lincoln kept the even tenor
of his way. and. wh?n his regiment
was disbauded. immediately enlisted
as a private soldier in another com

turned, to ms okl camp at Uixon, but
determined before doing so to make
one more attempt to retrieve his ill for-
tuue. Black Hawk's pirogues were
supposed to be lying a few miles dis- j
tant in a bend of the Rock river, and j
the capture of these would serve as
some relief to the dreary series of er
rors and miscarriages which had hith
erto marked the campaign. But Black
Hawk had just been teaching him
strategy In the most effective mode,
and the present movement was under
taken with an excess of caution almost
as ludicrous as Stillman's bravado.

Would set a certain distance, keeping
in sight, a second would start, and sc
on, until a string of men extending
vo miles from the main army was
made, each to look out for Indians and
give the sign to right, left or front by
hanging a hat on a bayonet erect for
the front and right or left, as the case
mig'.it be. To raise men to go ahead
was with difficulty done, and some
tried hard to drop back, but we got
through safe and found the place de
sevied, leaving plenty of Indian signs
a dead dog and several rcalps taken in
!l til harm's defeat, as we supposed them
to have been taken. After this, the last
of General V.'hitesicle's futile attempts,
returned to the battlefield and
thence t: IHxon, where he was joined
by Atkinson, with the regulars and the
long coveted and much needed .sup
plies. Ivior to this, however, an old Indian
fov.r.d his way into the camp, weary,
hungry and helpless. He professed to
be a friend of the whites and ventured
to throw himself upon the mercy of
the soldiers. But the men first mur
mured and then broke out into fierce
cries for his blood. "We have come out
to fight the Indians.'.' said they, "and
we intend to d.: it!" The poor old
Indian now, in the extremity of Lis
distress and peril, did what he ought to
have done before; he threw down be
fore las assailants a soiled and crum
pled paper, which he implored them to
read before his life was taken. It was
a letter of character and safe conduct
from General Cass, pronouncing him s
faithful mn who had done good serv
ice in the cause for which this army
was enlisted. But it was too late. The
men refused to read it or thought it a
forgery and were rushing with fury
upon the defenseless old savage when
Captain Lincoln bounded between
them and their appointed victim.
"Men," said he, and his voice for a
moment stilled the agitation around
him, "this must not be done. He must
not be shot and killed by us." "But,"
said some of them, "the Indian ia a
cussed spy." Lincoln knew-4hat his
own life was now In only less danger
than that of the poor creature that
crouched behind him. During the
whole of this scene Captain Lincoln

phTSlcaj power and terrible will exhib-
ited in every motion of his body, every
gesture of his arm, produced an effect
upon the furious mob as unexpected
perhaps to him as to any one else.
They paused, listened, fell back and
then sullenly obeyed what seemed to
be the voice of reason, as well as au
thority. But there were still some mur
murs of disappointed rage and half
suppressed exclamations which looked
toward vengeanceNof some kind. At
length one of the men a little bolder
than the rest, but evidently feeling that
he spoke for the whole, cried out,
"This is cowardly on your part, Lin
coln!" Whereupon the tall captain's
figure stretched a few inches higher
again. He looked down upon these
varets Wbo would have murdered a
defenseless old Indian and now quail

thtnVq I am a coward, let him test It,"
Baid he. "Lincoln," responded a new
voice, "you are larger and heavier than
we are." "This you can guard against;
choose your weapons," returned the
rigid captain. "Whatever may be said
of Mr. Lincoln's choice of means for
the preservation of military discipline,
it wascertainly very effectual .In this

Mr. Lincoln understood his men bet
ter than those who would be disposed
to criticise his conduct. He has often
declared himself that his life and char
acter were both at stake and would
probably have been lost had he not at
that supremely critical moment forgot
ten the officer and asserted the man.
To have ordered the offenders under
arrest would have created a formida
ble mutiny; to have tried and punished
them would have been impossible.
They could scarcely be called soldiers.
They were merely armed citizens with
a nominal military organization. They
were but recently enlisted, and theii
term of service was just about to ex
pire. Had he preferred charges against
them and offered to submit their differ:
ences to a court of any sort it would
have been regarded as an act of per
sonal pusillanimity, and his efficiency
would have been gone forever.
