regiment 5th Wisconsin Volunteers, -he
served with credit until he was requested
by the governor of Wisconsin to raise a
regiment in the democratic counties of
Ozankee, Sheboyan, Washington and
Dodge. Ou the occasion of his leaving,
the following resolutions were unani
mously adopted :
Whereas, the Executive of our State
has testified his appreciation of the abili
ties and distinguished services of Major
Charles H. Larrabee. by conferring upon
him the highest military trust within his
gift, in commissioning him Colonel of
one of the Wisconsin regiments, recently
accepted by the President ; we, the of
ficers of the "Fifth," desiring to to avail
ourselves of this opportunity to testify
our respect, our esteem and our affection
for our late Major, do adopt the follow
ing resolutions :
Resolved, That while we deeply de
plore the loss, to our regiment, of an ex
perienced and able officer, and to our
selves of a wise counseller, social com
panion, and true and tried friend, we at
the same time congratulate the nation,
the State, and the regiment, which he is
to command, upon the selection ot one
so eminently fit to train . to arms and
lead to battle the sons of the Joadger
Resolved, That although in future
marches, when the hills and the valleys
shall resound with the tread of armies
and the clash of arms, we shall miss the
encouraging words of our beloved Major,
yet the cheering recollections of the past,
when we first entered upon the theatre
of war and fought our first battle, in
spired by his presence and his example,'
shall nerve our hearts to a firmer deter
mination for our country to conquer, or
for our country to die.
Resolved, That while we bid him a
gretf ul adieu and a God-speed in his
new fied of usefulness and labor, we
hopefully look forward with pleasing an
ticipations to the time when the troubles,
which now convulse our country are over,
and we shall be permitted to enjoy many
happy reunions at home.
The following is his resignation and
the reply to the same :
Headauarters 5th Wisconsin Vols., Smiths
Vtvtsion, Army of the Potomac, July 24,
Colonel : I hereby tender my resigna
tion of the office of Major of your xiegi:
The immediate reason for this is, that
I have been selected by the Governor of
the State of Wisconsin to raise one of
the regiments assigned to that State un
der the late call of the President, and
have signified my acceptance of the trust.
I have the honor to be your most obe
dient servant, Chas. II. Larrabee.

Commanding 1st Brigade, Smith's Di
vision, Army of the Potomac.
Headquarters Sixth Corps. Camp near Har
rison's Landing, Va. July 25, 1862.
The following named officer having
tendered his resignation, is hereby hon
orably discharged from the -military ser
vice of the United States :
Major Chas. II. Larrabee, 5th Wiscon
sin Volunteers. By command of Major
Signed. - E. Sparrow Pdrdt,
Assistant Adjutant General.
After his return to Wisconsin he was
so successful that he brought into the
field enough men for four regiments.
He received a Stand of Colors awarded
by the State to the Colonel who should
first raise his regiment. . This was the
24th Wisconsin Volunteers. The official
report speaking of this regiment at the
battle of Chaplin Hills, Oct 5th, 1862,
says: "Col. C. H. Larrabee cannot be
too much praised for his coolness and
good soldierly behavior during the whole
engagement. And yet there are those
who assert that he resigned during the
first year of the war. But wasted by
disease contracted in the Swam pa of the
Chickahominy, he was at last compelled
to retire from command. The following
letters explain themselves:
Headquarters, Department of the Cumberland
Stevenson, ALi., Aug. 27 th, 1863.

named officers are accepted, to take effect
from this date :

lant and honorable record as an. othcer
and a gentleman. He directs me to say
that since he assumed command' of this
brigade he has found you uniformly
active, zealous and untiring in the dis
charge of your official duties.
While for military considerations he
regrets your resignation, it is a matter of
congratulation that the people and the
country are to have the benefit of your
wide experience and distinguished ability,
Carry with you, Colonel, to your home
the high regard and best wishes of your
comrades in arms.

My Dear Colonel :
I am annoyed to hear that calumy has

satisfied that the condition of your
health, and other personal circumstances
made known to me, imposed on me the
duty of accepting your resignation.

Sincerely trusting that no Union man
has been mean enough to lend a hand in

j E. L. Applegate, republican candidate
for Presidential Elector addressed the
citizens of Weston, Friday 15th. He
is a fluent speaker, gifted with good
language and a very great self-confidence. .
The chief topic, in his prefatory remarks
was "Applegate" as a pioneer, as an ora
tor, as founder of the .Republican party
in Oregon, as the only republicaa whose
record democrats have not assailed, as a
Greenbacker two years ago, and to-day
as a republican. , He then took up that '
part of- hia.aiitiriiitaatistic speech de
livered in tha Willamette Valley rela
tive to the "CTocodile, - which e probab
ly intended to apply 0 something politi
cal, but unfortunately overlooked the .
application. He then launched boldly -
into the the political issue of the day by
a succinct discription of tho Waldenses.
This, after suavely explaining that the
day was past in Oregon when "Applegate
had to bring proof for his assertions
very different from the time when he
introduced Republicanism to the Pacific
Coast He then said that Democracy -"can
not run a government, if the people
exceed a few hundred in number." As
"Applegate" requires no "proof," this
statement hurls into the shades of obliv
ion that insignificant part jt . American
history from Jefferson to Lincop. Dip
ping into logic he accounted for the exist
ence of democrats on the law of "heredi- . .,
tary transmission of error," being origina
ted by Robespierre and two other French-
He did not mention whether h?y
polygamists. On the contrary
"Republican principles were correct be
cause the party was recent and growing"
laily in number." He was too much.
cramped for time however to state how
that proof would apply to Mohammedans,,
Nihilists,, Know Nothings, Doughfaces.
&c, in their time. He hotly and labori
ately denounced the system of makiagr
personal" campiigns as "lowf and con
temptible." Just like "running Horses, :
and praising up your own, while running
down tho other as spavined, ring-bonea .
&c. He forgot that if a horse ero ;
wounded by a Mobelier bullet or crippled ;
on a De Golyer pavement, that every-
body could see it, even though its owner
were dumb. And if it were not for
"Applegate'a" needing no "proof, this
complete change from the time he so
violently abused S. J. Tilden, would be
strange, even in a man so vary consistent ,,
as'only to have changed from a Whig to -a
Democrat, then to a Republican, then to -a
Greenbacker, and again to a Republi
can. He piled ridicule, contempt and
facial contortions on the Potter commit- ,
tee "because they only tried to find some-.
thing agin' somebody." That was bad,
and what makes it pinch so confounded- :
ly hard is that they did find something
'agin' Garfield. Ha then " unearthed
some more Roman history in good stylo, :
he got up schigh in the garb of beauto- ,
ous imagery, that probably recalling the
fate of Herod the Great, he suddenly -
dropped himself to the human level again
in these words, "I did not make history,
ecause no one man can make it" - As.
may be supposed, this was an immense
relief to the audience. He said that
democrats in olden times were "gentle
men" who proclaimed that "all working-
men were slaves." By some oversight, :
however, they overlooked that in their
old platforms; but then Applegate knows.
He sail Free Trade was a heresy im
ported from England, the speakers being
paid with British GolcY; i Of course
that knocked the bottom out of it 7 The
error has since ben "tmMmittedliy
hereditary descent, every leliever I it
being bora with a cicatrix in the conyo-"
lutions of his brainThat clinchec? it
beyond any argument He then "went
up" in a sublime outburst against Slavery,
saying that he fought it before and .was
ready to do it again. But as the enemy
did not heave in. sight, he. went or-to.
prostrate the Democracy as "the oligarchy
that swung the cat-o-nine tails." He
closed his remarkable effort by promising
to call again and take up what, was left
of Modern History. . - - -
