Pet­ er A. Porter's regiment made their gallant charge at sunrise against the rebel “earthworks of splendor.\ With artillery stationed every five rods, blazing at them and mowing them down like blades of grass, 800 Union men were killed or wounded in that bloody fight. Mr. Meade was within two rods of the fort, and had just iired at a con­ federate soldier peering above the breastworks, when several other reb­ els fired across at him, wounding him in the hip. After hours of torture he was picked up and taken to Libby Prison, **vhere he spent three months, subsisting on two small pieces of corn- bread daily, made of corn ground up with nobs and husks and mixed with a little water. For 87 nights froip his prison window Mr. Meade saw the ex­ ploding shells and heard the ceaseless bombardment of Petersburg!!, 'which preceded the fall of Richmond and the ultimate end of the war. Giving him up for dead, his family were arrang­ ing a funeral memorial service at the Italy County Li-nc church, near Naples, when word came of his release from prison. Among his priceless treasures Mr. M&ulc has a fork and spoon which he carved for himself while in prison, an old woodcut of the battle of Cold Har­ bor, a button which he exchanged with a confederate soldier, and a piece of hardtack presented to him at Mun­ son's Hill, Va., when he received his RUSHVILLE C.
