If a shot is fiied by an unseen hand, he mast, by a rapid deduction from.the loudness of the report, its direction and perhaps a little smoke, almost intuitive­ ly conclude where his enemy is concealed, and in sending his compliments back, in the foim of a Minie bullet, hope that his enemy, if silenced, will at least conclude that it is better not to invite any farther hostility.— Then he is compelled to keep eyes and ears open for the sudden approach of a superior force, perhaps mounted, who, with a spirit of dare-devil adventure, surround him and hi.s ball-dozen companions, to carry them off prisoners of war. How to extricate them­ selves from such position, -when once in it, sharpens human ingenuity and developes courage to their utmost point, and bravery, skill and strategy have to make up for want of numbers. 'Fhe excitement of months in times of peace is comprf‘Sseu into a day when on picket in time of war, and experience with most men only sharpens the desire for more.
