It was the- third day of tlie battle
of the" Wilderness". Down . to the
southeast of our brigade, the thick
nine woods enclosed the little open
ing in front of. us, and there were
the "Johnnies in force . under A.
P. Hill. ' It was ond of the few op
portunities wherts artillery could be
used in that battle, and live bat
teries swept and ralfed that belt of
woods with shell, grape and shrap
nel. Down went whole " trees, top
pling one across r another, their
trunks cut sheer off. r Still the Con
federates stuckr there; Half buried
in branches and bougbsl -. ..
Then the command "Charge "
was given, and we went for that
woody ; belt what was left of it
across the open stretch, at a head
long run, and rushed into the thick
There we drew the enemy's fire.

would they budge. . Our liner went
over thent-like an ocean l)reaker , -
I saw but two men run back lfoui

to carry and clear the woods. After
pjissing a hundreds yards i through
the densest" of the pines,5 w came
to a : much thinner growth,, with
clumps of old:. dead: grass.' II ere
the reserves of 4 the Con federates
and two or three batteries caught
us on the fly shells, rockets and
grape, a terrific outburst from the
left and in front, almost in our very
faces ! ' ? " v, - -
With - the first explosion I was
struck by a fragment f shell on
the right leg above the knee, which
whiried me round so violently that
I fell. For a' minute my limb was
numb. I sat up, and put my hands
on it. The bone was broken, and
there was a white," gapraz iwouiid
where the blood V gathered rapidly.
With the first . throbs of pain the
crimson life-tide"gushed 6utV t

none can know but the poor fellow

skirted the woods on one side, and

Bits of the History of . New
rS'xii-T. Berne: V
On Thursday night, the 23d of July,
1S21, at half past twelve o'clock, .de
parted thist life, Mr. Johnathan -Price,
after a hhor't but not a painful illness.
VVhen a man who lias rendered emi
nent services to his country, and who
by his virtues has endeared LiniHelf to a
numerous acquaintance, takes of them
his'last his ever lasting farewell.it
seems to be not improper to take some
little notice of his past life, that posteri
ty may beanabled to do justice to. hia
memory, and to profit by hia example.
And that the life of Mr. Price1 haa been
a great publio, as well as private bene
fit, in the way of his profession, no one
will deny. Although no body is igno
rant of the existence of Price's Map of
the State of North Carolina, it is believed
that neither the public utility and vast
importance of -the work, nor tlie diffi
culty of -executing it,.; have ever been
rellectcd on by one in a thousand. At
the time- of xthe undertaking, there
was very little typographical knowledge
in the country,- and to undertake and
loompletefy effect thEC bcruaJ survey of
uie wnoie tate oi nortn Carolina, pass
ing over its whole" surface, up and down
its numberless roads, laying down with
precision the situation of theBtate with
respect to'oth&vSJtatea, and the counties
with respect to eachr other tracing the
course of the rivers front their sources
to the sea delineating the mountains',
the numerous towns, villages, acad
lilies and : county' scats, and. finally
measuring and exhibiting to. the eye,
upon the map,' the .distances of places
from one toanotlter wltli the same ex
actness as if done with the surveyor
chain. -All this, I sar required adeeree
of intellect that determines the possessor!
to be one of heaven's great works. . : :
How comprehensive, how interprls
ing and energetic must have been that
mind capable of grasping at a view, both
the gigantic plan and all means jt its
accomplishment. And' how -superior
the genius and perseverance' that could
execute the' herculean .labor. It has
been the subject of eulogy, not only in
several of the States but also by the re
viewers ' of Europe. H should . be re
membered that.it was a private,' not a
public work-... . . . ; ; ... . . .
His survey of the coast of North Caro
lina, on which he was employed by the
State, -is well known and highly ap
proved for its accuracy and is another
proof of his mathematical skill, his last
employment by the State, was for the
purpose of taking the level of several of
the counties, ascertaining the degree of
descent to the rivers themselves, thereby
ta determine the proper places for cut
ting canals. This he performed to en
tire satisfaction, v -.
,We now come to his private character.
And here I appeal to the grateful recol
lections of all my fellow citizens to say,
Itow acceptable was always the com
pany and conversation of their old
friend (for he : was the friend of all )
now, easy, now unassuming, yet how
t4opjnions of his friends happened to
oe uiuerent lrom his own, he opposed
them .with, temper. and , with candor,
neyer with acrimony, or even disrespect.
But with what gentleness did he correct
whenever it was necessary, the errone-
ous sentiments or opinions of his female
friends; he pleasingly led them to the
discovery, of truth,, by, the softness of
his tones, and the kindness of his man
ner; -and although they might not be
come converts to his opinions, they
scarce ever failed to become his friends;
but never, never did he intentionally
wound the feelings of any human being.
His capacious mind ' was amply .stored
with various kind of knowledge. Be
sides (hat, immediately connected with
hia profession," he well understood As
tronomy, Geography, and Navigation;
tie Was a tolerable Botaniut, understood
drawing and painting , very well, and
was likewise perfectly acquainted With
theology; but. in Natural Philosophy,
his knowledge was aiinost. boundl-- .
In that domestic household kind too,
eo common, but so useful, he .exceeded
almost all other men.- v - .
His charity Was of the most 'benevo
lent kind, v Far, - from confining it to a
sect, or even to a country,, it extended
to the vhole Jium'an race. As an in
stance osf, his practical morality, I will
relate a tmn suction, which he no doubt
