THE EVENING STAR THE BAYONST CHARGE. fProm Montrose (Pa.) Independent Republican.) Hark to the batteries disputing in thunder Shell over tree top and shoj rattling under. Noisily cover the path of the foe ? th ?5 through th?- forest aisles, lofty and Urge, There'? a look on the face of our leader I know, And I wait the dread order: "Fix bayonets? eharge!" An I less brave for a moment's quick shiver? Hearts of oak yonder bear light leaves that quiver, I look down the line there's a lip turning white, Pet the inner to that; there are fl *ed gazing eyes Intent upon something, hut not on the fight ; There's a swift elance Rung upward to pierce the bine skies. While the thunder ro'ls nearer distinct thro' it all I ratrb fragments of whispers, as" Boys, if I fa 1;" Or thus ' Should the worst coine, write home to my mother ?'Tell my sister, my wife that I died like a man." ?'You'll find in my knapsack, friend." murmurs , another, "A line I scrawled when the battle began." Our Colonel sits firm ; with that look in his eye. Like a sword part unsheathed, he rides gallantly Should he fall, made a mark for the shapshooter's *'111 ,. By hia gay epaulette with its golden encrust. There'll be trumpet loud voices to herald his fame But I am a private?the commonest uust! For fame do I fight? Lord of Hosts doesjiot he Who battles for right ever battle for Thee ! . There are graves trodden level tl^at love seeks in Held 7n honor hy angels. Alike in thy sight The poorest who craves tor the red stripes their fftain. And the leader who falls in the van of the fight. They are coming?they come ! Shifting sunbeams reveal Their way through hy the "litter of steel. They swarm through the light, through the tree holes they swarm Out from the forest aisles, lofty and large. Our Colonel turn* pale, drops his beckoning arm*. But hark, boys, the order. "Fix bayonets? charge!" G?>. Grant's Anticipated fcarly Capture of Richmond. Office of rrovott Marshal Third District Illinois, I>lxon,May IS 1?64.? To the editor of the Chicago Evning Journal: 1 saw a statement in jour pa pers last evening to the effect that Lieutenant General Grant had invited two gentleman of Galena to dine with him in Richmond. As I am an admirer of the Genera), and as I believe 1 krow the tacts in relation to the origin of the statement, which is not exactly correct, 1 take the liberty of writing them to you. A brother of General Grant, while in this vicinity, on Monday last, received a telegram from the General, which was forwarded from Galena Mr.Grant stated that his brother bad premised him, in case there was a good pros pect of entering Richmond, that he would no tify him so that he might be present. The de spatch, written in fulfillment of this promise, told him to come: and accordingly he in com pany with another gentleman from Gilena, ?was about to visit the sceneH of the great bat tles. I think a correct statement of this matter in your paper would be gratifying, both as an in dication of General Grant's opinion of the sit uation, and as believing him from the sem blance of frivolity. 1 am your obedient servant, Joh>- V. Ecbtace, Provost Marshal Third District Illinois.
