ANECDOTES OF THE BATTLE-FIELD.--
Early in the action of the 8ih, a private oi
the 8th regiment was severely wounded
by a grape-shot on the head. He was or-
dered by the surgeon to the rear, any ex-
: citement being liable to cause sudden
death. The soldier stole out of the hospi.
tal, picked up a musket, started off to re-
enter the engagement. He was arrested
and sent back to the hospital, where he be-
came so enraged at being thus deprived of
his "* sacred rights," that it became neces-
sary to tie him hand and foot.
A private on the 9th belonging to the
8:h regiment in the charge on the enemy's
batteries, threw himself in front of Colonel
Belknap, apd relieved three balls in his
person, aimed atthe Colonel. His gallant-
ry will be duly rewarded by Colonel Bel-
Sknap, to who,0e.kind attentions he is indebt-
ed: for .his recovery from- his severe
One of Arista's Aids, taken on the 9th,

Jfiat Generai Taylor would so promply fol-
low up the bat le of the 8th.
The Mexicais exaggerated our power
after the-hattles, as iucI, as they were in
the habit of exaggerating their o#n before
tliem. One soldier reported in Matamo-
ros--" that previous to battle, the Ameri-
can soldiers were ted by their of4iers on,
powder and W hi-key, to make them fight."
-Another said that the Americans were
so strong that one of our troops could pick
up one of their cavalry, and pieh horse auid
rider a hundred feet."-.N. 0. Tropic.

QUITE A CoNSsirKATEr THEIW-A fellow

had been procured, exchanged the old one

under the impressi< n that it would answer

months, he found it would not do at all and

very well, he would make the exchange; that
he was just going out on a ped lIng excursion
and would return in the fail, where he would

The'salubrity of Palatka is too well known

it was selected as military post during the
Indian war in preference to all other sites
,-.on account of its general healthiness, and
the facilities which it afforded.

at Palatka which no other locality in E. F.
holds out. -
