Dr. Henry M. Field, editor of the New York Evangelist and the author of a recent volume entitled "Bright Skies and Dark a compilation of war reminiscences, in a recent letter to the editor of the Times, suggested that the hero of one of the best chapters was now residing in Kansas City. The story was that just before the battle of Franklin (Teim.) a Federal officer was being entertained by the family of Col. McEwen, then, as now, a prominent citizen of that place.

One of Col McEwen's daughters was sinking to the officers the at that time popular melody, "Just before the Battle, Mother." The song was interrupted at the conclusion of the first verse by the roll of musketry. The officer hurried to the buttlefield, was there desperately wounded and for a long time wavered between life and death. On his return through Frankliu nearly seven months after that desperate battle, he called at tho mansion of Col. McEwen and asked the young lady to -complete the song left unfinished when JAMES TANNER, Lata nmiisHonpr Tensions. WiiHhiiiKlon.

The strike of the Now York Central train men anil yard men, which occurred on Friday, was on Monday an apparent failure, by reason of the action of the engineers' brotherhood, who did not go out as tho Knights of Labor expected.

H.

"The battle of Franklin has not occupied my thoughts for at least twenty-five years," said Col. Waters yesterday, "but as I look back upon that day in November and remember the hospitality accorded me by the family of Col. MoEwera, I can see the events of that time as in a mirror.

Arriving at the house we were greeted pleasantly by Col. McEwen and on our informing him that we had eaten nothing that day, not because of want of appetite, but lack of viands, he gave us a substantial cold luuch. He also introduced us to his daughters, of whom he had throe, all of whom I believe, were single at that time. Gen. Kimball suggested that the young ladies entertain us with some music and the request was complied with.

'As you are hourly expected to meet with Hood', said one of the young ladies, 'perhaps the most appropriate song we could sing would be this And she began, 'Just Before the Battle, which, though old to them, was new to us. "She had finished the first verse when we were startled by tho rattle of musketry, the enemy attacking Waggoner's right. We darted out of the house, leaving the young ladies sitting at the piano. The battle was on when we reached the lield. About 0 :30 that night I was shot through the shoulder and was left for dead.

It was the following April when we were returning through Franklin that Gen. Kimball and I again called upon Col. McEwen to thank him lor his hospitality and to apologize for our abrupt departure on the day of the battle of Franklin. I still had my arm in a sling. While we were enjoying the Colonel's hospitality I told the young ladies that now would be an excellent time to complete the song which had been so suddenly broken off on the date' of the battle, six months before."

A Knights of Labor official at Albany said: "The strike is yet in its infancy and its extent and power, if our demands are not met with, will surprise people. Tho men arc remaining quietly away from the yard and will avoid trouble if possible. Wo are not interfering with passenger trains and shall not attempt to stop them, but the road must not attempt to move a pound of freight or there will be trouble." Major Brock, chief of the bureau of statistics, has just issued a summary statement of the imports and exports of the United States for the month ending June 30, and for the preceding eleven months. During Juno the free of duty imports of merchandise were valued at $21,010,287 for the $205,588,499 dutiable. The exports of domestic merchandise in June were valued at $52,072,204.

and for the year $845,293,828. Kansas has cash and funds on hand to the amount of $57,225,77, more than doublejthe amount on band in 1880. Missouri has on hand, an increase of more than a $1,000,000 in the ten years. The bonded indebtedness of Missouri is $8,783,000, only about one-halt of what it was in 1880, and in ten years the bonded debt of Kansas has been reduced nearly $1,000,000, being now-only $801,000. Kansas has no floating debt but Missouri's iloating debt has increased about $50,000, being now $3,074,000.

Missouri's net debt is, therefore, $8,439,749, and Kansas shows an excess of assets over debt of $4,921,572. The Vanderbilt line had no difficulty in finding new men to replace strikers. A notice was posted telling where applications for places might be made, and the result was that applications were received by the score. By one of the officials it was said 150 men had been taken on. He also declared that all the men engaged were experienced railroad men.

Mr. Voorhis said that he had received a number of applications from railroad men living around New York, among whom were some employed on the elevated roads. Others from Pittsburg and from men employed in tho Erie yards, some even coming from as far west as Chicago. The company had not engaged them, as they found they could obtain all they required 111 the city. "Tis wheat to be'remewbered," as a grain speculator observed when viewing a prospective crop.

An invention ha3 been perfected in the glass industry which, it is stated, will accomplish a complete revolution in that branch of manufacture. Until the present it has only been possible to produce sheet glass by blowing a hollow cylinder, which was then cut, separated and polished. An American glass manufacturer has now succeeded in producing glass plates of great breadth and of any desired length by means of rolling.

Glass thus produced is said to possess a far greater homogeneity, firmness and transparency, and it has, on the upper surface, a brilliancy which is hardly to be distinguished from art plate glass. The material part of the invention consists in the application of the peculiar, undulated, hollow metal rollers, heated from the inside by means of steam or gas. These rollers seize the sticky, liquid glass, which is conducted ito them from the bottom of a melting-tub, without the interveuting of any other apparatus whatever. To prevent the soft glass from adhering to the rollers, the latter are covered with an extremely thin coating of wax. If the new process is extensively used, window-glass will be considerably cheapened.
