last night Reynolds has disappeared.

*<The soldier is a man not a inns*
ket'* This sentence from Gen. Sher-
man's speech át the Setenth Regiment
dinner on Saturday is one of those
ghrases which a man of genius like
herman now and then throws into
history. It tells the difference between
our war and modern wars. Our sol
diers were men, with ideas in their
cartridge boxes. Like men they
fought, and like men made their vic-
tory honorable. And it was because
there were men, not muskets, both in
the north and south that the whole
military system melted away like the
baseless fabric of a vision. There
were no remaining Hessians among the
victorious to inspire vulgar deeds of
ambitious usurpation. There were no
foolish guerillas among the conquored
to become bandits and mountain or
swamp rebels. The war was over and
done. The musket became a man, to
plow and dig and spin and be a com-
ponent part of the great republic and
