Their appearance indicated that their lot had y been sufficiently hard. Some the Marks of Long confinement i All the severity of the prison had unstamped its looked dejected at this Public sex Alrea wore and g House they and anxious to learn their Fate. I had before of la soon their i newer seen the face of any of them and Only knew that a single one m had been adjudged to As their were called and sentences were announced i Dis cent 1 by his agony and the Mise Able Man on whom that sentence was Man n the Bloom of and the fullness of health and opted by feelings of sympathy d next morning to see him in there chained by the leg to am of the guard House he was g the Bible trying to prepare fas he said for the fatal de from him the circumstance of his c be. He was the father of a Fame Laving a wife arid three Young child in thirty Miles Distant from the Camp his crime wis desertion of which i he had been Thiee times guilty. His Only object in leaving the Camp in the list instance he declared was to visit us wife and children. But what Ever Rashis intention in was a deserter arid As such he was taken and Bro t into guard Betti on the sentence and its execution was t authority in whom alone i ested the Power of reprieve or Pard by Distant thus he had no Hope and c Only requested the attendance of a minister of the gospel and permission to Sei his wife and children. The first part f he request was granted but whet Lethe was permitted or not to see his f mily i do not now remember. Dreading the hour of his execution i Reso ived if possible not to be present at the but the commander of the Post lie and under a of his fellow soldiers. The time col. L sent me an express Ordein to attend that agreeable to the usage s of the army i might in my official capacity of surgeon Aee the sen tence fully executed. To e poor fellow was taken from the guar House to a escorted to the fatal of spot. Before him waa his a Bojaj of rough Pine on the shoulders of two men. The prisoner stood with his arms pinioned be tween two White Cotton gown or winding Sheet reached to his i it with Black and had attached to it Over the place of the red heart the image of a Mark of which the executioners were to aim. On his head was a Cap of also trim Ned with Black. His Counte Nance was blanched to the same Hue of his wind no Sheet and his Frame trem bled with agony. He seemed resolved however to suffer like a behind them were a number of prison ers confined for various to them was a Strong guard of soldiers with fixed bayonets and loaded muskets. My station was in the rear of the whole. Our procession thus with much feeling and in Low voices on the part of the moved for Ward in slow Steps to the tune of a death March Roslin played with muffled Drums and mourn ing fifes. The scene was solemn beyond the Power of description a Man in Vigdor of life walking to his grave the tune of his own death Anarch Fri the last a weep Ove not by no Nhis burial ends assembled to perform office of affection and to Rhein in the last sad these but by soldiers with bristling bayonets and urged by violence o As he stir no look of Tern command o the death to a fellow s the multitude he beholds tear of sen hears no plaint of grief Stern As Stern As the Iron rigor of the Law which decreed his deals. And who made that Law it is the work of thard necessity and As such is just. But alas who created that passions the Pride the vain glory the false Hon or of men the voice of that blood will soon cry from the ground whom shall it accuse it will complain not of the sentence of the Law but of guilty War cherished by human will and Pride. And whose Are that will and Pride to whom shall that widow and those orphans look As the authors of their desolation whom shall the spirit of this poor Soldier meet at the judgment and j charge with this guilt amid reflections like these Wev arrived at the place of execution a Large open Field in whose Centre a Heap of Earth marked the spot of the deserter s grave. On this Field the whole Force then at the Cantonment amounting to Many Hundred men was drawn up in the form of a hollow Square with the Side the grave vacant. The executioners eight in number had been drawn by lot. Soldier would Volunteer for such a duty. Their muskets had been charged by the of the seven of with Ball and the eighth with powder alone thus pre pared they were placed 1 aether and each executioner takes ins Choice. Thus each believes he has a Blank cat Ridge and therefore has no hand in the death of his brother Soldier striking indication of the nature of the ser vices. The coffin was placed parallel with the grave and about two feet Distant. In the intervening space the prisoner was directed to stand. He desired per Mission to say a word to his fellow sol Diers and thus standing Between his coffin and his grave warned them against desertion continuing to speak until the officer on duty with his watch in his hand announced to him in alow voice two o clock your last moment is at hand you must Kneel Down upon your coffin this done the officer Drew Down. The White Cap so As to cover the eyes and most of the face of the prisoner still continuing to speak in a hurried loud and agitated voice. The kneeling was the signal for the executioners to Advance. They had before to avoid being distinguished by the prisoner stood intermingled with the soldiers who formed the line. They now came Forward marching abreast and took their stand a Little to the left about two rods Distant from their living Mark. The officer raised his sword. At this signal the executioners took aim. He then gave a blow on the drip which was at hand the executioners All fired at the same in Stant. The miserable Man with a Hor rid scream leaped from the Earth and fell Between his coffin and his grave. Guard a moment after shot him through the head with a Musket reserved for his purpose in Case the should not pro Dace instant death. The sergeant from i motives of humanity held the muzzle of his Musket near the head so near that the Cap took fire and there the body Lay upon the face the head emitting the mingled of Bur and burning hair. 0 Wir dreadful1 even in thy rid even in thy compassion. I was now desired to perform my part of the ceremony and placing my hand where just before the pulse had beat the life flowed warm and finding no symptoms of either i affirmed a is dead. The whole line then marched by the body As it Lay upon the Earth the head still Everylean might behold for himself the Fate of a deserter. A thus far All had been dreadful in deed but solemn it became the sending of a spirit to its account but now the scene changes. The whole band struck up and with uncommon animation our National air Yankee and to its Lively measures we were hurried Back to our Parade ground. Having been dismissed the commander of the Post sent an invitation to All the officers to meet at his quarters Wilber we repaired and were treated to a Glass of Gin and water. Thus the melancholy tragedy ended in what seemed Little better than a Lair specimen the former of the dread seve latter of the moral sen Sibili prevail in the Camp. Do scenes such As this Ever enter the minds of those who Hare the chief Agency involving their respective countries in a War do Ever flit across the imagination of the statesman while he is talking loudly of insult to his coun try s the splendor of military glory of the necessity of warlike action to wipe off imputations upon the National courage do they Ever cast their dismal Shade Over the glowing picture of chivalry which in the ardor of passion rises to i i vision Are they entertained in the conceptions of Hose who without Examina Tion reject As Idle dreams All plans for the adjustment of International difficulties without resort to War and deride As visionary All specific action for introducing the principles of a better my rally into the code of International Law do the great mass of men Ever eager at the voice of their leaders to cause the Standard of War to he up reared know in reality what War is no. The words of the poet Are but too secure from actual warfare we have lored to War hoop war1 alas for Ages ignorant of All its Ghast Lier we had Beewi for War and bloodshed animated aporta.
