The Irmj of the rotiim.ic--from the I'wIiir ot tlic ltnililaii-T Hip Jilfito of I'drrtpcrp In IMH. Tluro arc few tnoro graph ie pitt tires of horror of war than tho following sketch of the campaign in the wiidt'f iunx, wtitten by Lt. Elias Hrookiims, ol tho .'list .Maine fur tho Sptinglield lvcpubliran: It is tho jinrposo in this account to review brieliy some ot tho scenes and incidents of which tho writer was a witness. Little attempt will bo made to ive the positions of tho dillVrent corps which composed the army. For the most part the observations are confined to a single regiment. Wliils our liuhtini; in this enmpaimt begins at tho Unpidan, less than litty miles from Uichmonil in a direct line, so many rivers are to be crossed that thenrniy must move up and down these streams to find suitable fords or for favornblepo-dt ions for pontoon bridges. It must cross and recross in accordance with the movements ol tile enemy. The soldier, now looking back 1212 "years, would estimate his route from May 1, when the army was put in motion toward tho Wilder ness, to .luno 15, tho date of reaching the James, at several hundred miles. For 50 consecutive days tins army of tho Potomac was in motion and on the alert, marchine. one day and moot ing the enemy the next; nuain march ini three days, and either repellini: tho attacks or charging tho works of tho foe for i. a many more. Consider also tho load which is car ried by each soldier livodays' rations, 10 rounds of ammunition, canteen filled with cofTee, and knapsack pre pared for a three-months' eimpaign. The weight of this burden, including musket, is not less than HO pounds. It is proper that every soldier's mon tiniein in tho land should ho surmount ed with tho representation of a sol dier fully equipped. The son of ovory veteran, to understand in any degree tho burden which his father bore, should annually buculo on tho old armor and put himself on tho inarch. Wonder and admiration would fill the breast of that son whoso father had for months and years staguered under such a load. So much in general. On May 1, tho army encamped all tho way" from Culpeper court-hottso northerly for 125 miles toward Alex andria, numbered from 1125,000 to lot), 000 men. Reorganizations and consolidation of roL'iments, brigades and divisions have been rapidly pro gressing and are now nearly complete, (rent activity every wliero prevails. The drilling of troops, thodistribution of supplies, llio moving of artillery and above all the presence of Han cock, llurnsido, Meado and Grunt, in dicate an immediato advance. Tho appearance of this vast army reach ing on both sides of tho highway toward tho distant hills presents a magnificent picture. Look at it. ibitnished arms on all sides, regiments on dress paiude, inspection of com panies, drill by squads, regiments and brigades, budges, flags, tents dotting the entire surtnee, knots of mon hero and there discussing thosituation and speculating of the future, ollicers in gaudy dress, with aids and order lies galloping over t ho field theso are some of the prominent features in this graml spectacle on tliesegala days. 1 Good health and buoyant spirits uro tho rule. At the annearanco of some woll-known and popular gmeral tho men voluntarily rush to tlio roadside and send forth cheer upon cheer. And yet under all this there is u fear ful foreboding, for Grunt is hero and thereto! e tho army is never to retreat. Generals are issuing orders to bu ob seivetl on the march. Httrnsido, com munder of tho Oth :orps, with which our regiment is attached, caused to bo read to each brigade very definite instructions. Among others was tins: On tho maivii no soldier should quit tho ranks on any pretense what ever without tho permission of his commanding officer. Tlio army is about to inovo into tlio country of an nctivo enemy, with no friendly force behind or near it, und ovory strnggler runs t ho risk of 1 abby prison or bullet." Almost every hour of the day or night we uro expecting to receive tho order, "Forward to Richmond." May ii tho adjutant of each regiment reuds Gen. Meade's address. Even now comes a patriotic throb us wo re cull theso words: Soldiers! Tlio eyes of tho wholo country nre looking with nnxious hope to tlio blow you uro about to strike in tho most sacred cnuso that ever culled men to arms. Reinomber your homes, your wives und children. Hour with putienoe tho hurdships and sacrifices you will bo culled upon to endure. On the sumo day camp is brokon, six days' rations are issued and wo aro in motion. A fow only of tho sol diers of our regiment had fcoen service, having BiilU'd in tlio winter and spring. Tholliccrs, however, were for tlio most part veterans who hud serv ed in the 12d Maine regiment . O! for n pen which ndoquutely could set forth the suffering of even that one dny's inureh of 18 inilos toward thoRapidan. At 12 o'clock thu bur den Hueins more than double, 80 pounds become 1200! Like a shin at sou nartialiy wrecked, from which homo of the cargo loss valuable than tho rest must bo thrown overboard, the soldier now examines his load und begins to throw away article), which in tho morning beamed iudispunuubln. Jlelote Hiinsot liu bus simiiiiomtd all his energies, marched und marched, minutes seeming boms Tlio earth ceases hor revolution. Rut there is hope. A halt may be ordered. It does not come and tho man finally staggers and falls. Overtaken and urged on by a guard whose duty it is to allow tit! one to fall out, ho ts help ed to his foot, pushed on a few rods und again falls. Rurnstde's order bus little weight wiih one so exhuu-ted. lie welcomes either Libby or a bullet. omo eteran at his side has told him of the painful search for Ins regi ment, when once falling out. His com rades move on, regiments, bitgndes, divisions and ooqn passing in rapid succeession. The weary soldier is un ubl to move, night finally overtaking him. Rising nt daybreak new nud strange badges tt;v worn by tho troops now passing. From all sides the "stragglers" appear. A, last upon some comrade st raggler. like himself, the old badge of the SUh corps, tlio cannon and anchor, is soon, it is a welcome sight. These two men, being bent upon ono and t he same object, tlig finding of their regiments, form a partnership. Others wtnring tho same badge join them until nearly a brigade is loi n'ied. The search is continued through tho day. Toward night tho headquarters ol thu corps uro discov ered. Rut the corps exttnds for threo miles along the road. Ono hour more nud the division is found. Short .vork after this to find the brigade, regiment and company. On that first day at 7 a. in. our reg iment numbered 800. At. 5) p. in. only 1300 responded to"roll call." Of tho 200 who have fallen out 50 fail to overtaketheir commands and in afew davs aro reported sick in hospitals. Rut tho (100, what is their condition e.fter tho first day's campa;gn? Out good general, in addition to instruc tions on fnllingout, had also mention ed tho necessity of "washing tho feet, at night, soaping tho stockings and greasing tho shoos." Rut suggestions, instructions, and oven orders are of little avail with men so utterly pros trated by the day's march. Experi ence hero, as elsewhere, must mainly be relied upon to correct the habits. The feet are soie, tho shoes are taken oil to relievo pain, but as a rule the stockings, although saturated with blood, are not soaped nor the shoes greased at tho end of tho first day. Tho Veterans aro thooxcept ton. Thoy seek brooks and streams in which they bat ho before sleep. This, too, is our first night without tents. Stretched upon tho ground for miles, tho army of tho Potomac rests. It requires more than a blast from tho bugle to rouso the soldier tho next morning. The company ollicers must awaken each man. Removing his blankets ho attempts to stand. After several futilo efforts, ho finally suc ceeds in taking u few steps without shoos. Gathering wood, i ho soldiers in groups ot six or eight light a firo to boil the coffee, which with pork and hardtack, makes their breakfast, liar lly is tho breakfast eaten when tlio order comes. "Fall in." Totter ing and limping tho in M obey, tlio acute sensation of pain gradually di minishing under fio exertions of the march. So heavy is tlio load and so tedious is tho inarm that many a sol dier prefers to meet the enemy any thing but this terrible fatigue! On tho 5th tho Oth corps reaches the Rnpidnn by a forced inarch. Tho sharp rattle of musketry is heard. Tlio 2nd, 5th, and (Hli corps have had hard fighting all day. Ambulances, stretchers almost block the way. Wounded und bleeding men nre cur rind to tlio rear. Having crossed the Rapidan wo uro in tlio Wilderness. All night tlio grouns und cries of wounded men uro hoard. Eany tho next morning out lines uro formed und wo uro advanced toward tlio enemy. As wo near tho font hire come from the ofliceis these words so well understood just before a buttle, words given in a low half-whispered und yet linn tone: "For-wurd" "for ward" "steady" "guide right." On and on wo advance, with dilliciilty keeping in lino owing to tho under brush, A fierce buttle is already rag ing on both sides. As yet wo liavo re.'eived no firo from the enemy. Wo uro near his entrenchments. Sudden ly the order comes, "Charge." A (loud ly fire is hurled in our very faces. Our lines becoino irregular. Wo re turn the fire, probably with little ef fect, our unt agonist being protected by his fortifications. Tlio storm of lead continues us wo attempt to re form our lines und again charge. Ry this timo our troops uro strungely mingled. Now comes a lull, men begin to look about them. In tho oxcitenient of tho charge ollicers urged on any men whom they could. All bear tho stump of bravo men, but many aro strangers. Only a fow of those who started ut tho first order uro hero now. Some, moro during than others, settled the works of tho enemy und aro now prison ers; too many have fallen; some in tho contusion fought nobly elsewhere, wliilo possibly a fow considered "dis cretion the bettor part of vulor." Rut where is the regiment? Tho old Hag is tho regiment, no matter how fow nre with it. Out of such u charge and in so much confusion HO men may bo found with the colors immediately after. Eagerly tho absent ones seurch for u sight of the Hag, which all uro hound to recognize us home. All day long tho title of buttle ebbs und flows, now on the right, now on left, now at tho center, und again at all points, fierce and sharp. Attacks anil repulses, victories und defouts fol low ouch other in rapid succession. On tho march to the Rupuluu soldiers longed to meet theiniemy. They have met und fought him and Inst more than 20,000 in killed and wounded 7,000 prisoners, besides many fioin sickness and ot hi r hum's. Again vc-nre moving toward Spott sylvnni.i. On our way we halt upon hist orto ground, being upon a battle field where one year before 15,000 I nion men fell. It is Ciiancellorsville, where Hooker was so badly ln-alen. The skeletons of veterans st ill upon tlio surface aro reverently buried. Many marks ot that torribloslaughter still remained, but the old order, "Fall in." left in little time to wander over this sacred soil. Spottsyivnnia. seems much lik" tho wilderness. The forest trees are larger and the clearings more frequent. In the live days of marching and lighting one scene is remembered with distinct ness. Our forces nt this point are in trenched behind hustily-eonstnic'cd works on tho brow of a hill. Tho hostile forces ato posted on tho opro site hill. Tho ravine bit ween iscover ed witii a small growth of trees sulli cent to screen troops. Suddenly 2.000 or I!, 000 men rush from the enemj s lino toward tho ravine. Had tho movement been discovered in time the troops couid not have reached tlio ravine, for before reaching it, they were within easy range. Evidently they are to make a dush towurd our lines. Ollicers aro urging the men to bo calm and take good aim. Our men obey. At the first firo the foe retreats to t he ravine. While ho is crossing wo load to be ready as bo ascends ho hill. Tho colonel rushing along tho line cries out, "Now lie reudy, hoys." As they emerge tho order is "lire." The colonel seeing tho execution calls out: "Good, good, boys. Givo 'em another" At Spot tsylvania tho I'n ion loss is placed at 10,000. And now for eight days und nights with scarcely an intermission this army has been making attacks upon a desperate foo every wliero strongly intrenched. If sleep wore allowed to any, it must be under arms. Tlio sol dier must grasp his musket and bo ready to spring to his feet at any mo ment. Our loss has been fearful. Tho sick, tho wounded, the killed and tlio prisoners during theso memorable davs must liavo amounted to more than one-third ol tho entire army. After tiis battlo reinfoiceineiits uro pouring in. Troops nre encouraged by the news from the North. Men gen erally in tho army considered them selves beaten. Our lots bad been greater than that of thorebels. Imag ine our surprise on learning that Pres ident Lincoln hud on May 0, after re ceiving intelligence from tho Wilder ness, issued a proclamation recom mending that all patriots "unite in common thanksgiving and prayer to Almighty God" on account of "tho annv operations wit bin the lust fivo duys." On the sumo dny the army mourned tlio loss of Gen. Sedgewick who was killed by a ball from a sharp shooter. The objective point is not reached. The army must move. There is more or less of skirmishing anil annoyance from sharp-shooters all the way to Cold Harbor which is reached .lime 1 . Incidents aro constantly occurring to break tho monotony of the.so hot and dusty roads, A man in tlio ranks is whirled violently round and .alls to tlio ground. Mis companions remove lii.i equipments and search for tho ex pected wound. It cannot bo found. The man soon resumes his placo and goes on almost ashamed lost ho bo suspected of shamming. The sumo night when ready to encamp and tho blankets, which had been twisted to gether and thrown over tho shoulders, uro spread out a bullet .fulls upon tho ground. Tho soldier, suspected of shuniming culls his comrades for an inspection, who find that tho robol bullet has passed through 12 thick nesses of his blanket. Tho verdict was "justified in falling." Every soldier will recall many similar in stances. Sometimes tho bullet passes through tho clothing. The soldier imagines himself killed and often sendB dying messages to his friends. At Cold Harbor it is the old story of attacks und repulses, slaughter nud blood. In this light our brigade ut one timo is placed in front ot artillery for its support. For several hours wo lie flat upon nir faces in the edge of a forest, our artillery playing over our heads und the confederates returning the fire. Reyondu doubt this it tho most trying position in which to place men. Shot and shell ?anio screeching through the air. Now a shell bursts in our midst, killing several und wounding others; now it comes tour ing ulong cutting tho brunches fiom trees; now it plows tho earth in our front and halt buries those near; and again it strikes in our rear. Rut in each onto there is u panful suspense Tho noise is deiiftning. Tho hands placed over the ears aro but a slight protection. Tho boom of guns is still heard. If wo could only do some thing! fire, loud, charge or retreatl Wo must wait for orders, When tho ordor,"retroat," cumoit wuh necessary only to whisper it so readily was it obeyed. After this battlo of .TunoU tholinesof hostilo forces uro very near each oth er. Sharp firing is kept up by tho picket line, dny and night. In the day time it is death to show one'H bond. The picket lino must ha relieved under the cover of dnrkness. Men uro cau tioned not to speak or muko any un necessary noise. Even then many uro killed and wounded by random firing. Tho sharpshooters also uro making sud havoe during tho day. Tho dead between tho lines are yet unhuried und tho wounded unenred for. A cor respondence between (lens Grant and leo resulted in an arms! ice of two hours m which the dead and wounded were tenderly removed.
