ho has had experience as a cracksman or a safe-blower step to the front. It is said that the whole detachment stepped off its two paces with perfect unanimity. The Atlanta did not, in fact, make any demonstration on the Savannah, but went, some time later, to Wassaw Sound, only to be captured by Commander John Rodgers with the monitor Weehawken.--Q. A. G. The first vessel, with ordnance and ordnance stores for the siege, had arrived in Tybee Roads on the 21st of February, and on the 9th of April the batteries were ready to open fire. Lieutenant Horace Porter says: So much were the preparations hurried for opening the bombardment, that we could not wait for many of the ordnance stores that had been ordered from the North. Powder-measures were made out of copper from the metallic cases in which the desiccated vegetables are received. Columbiad shells were strapped with strips of old tents, rough blocks being used for sabots. A large party was kept working day and night, dur

r Peninsula with his force of seven or eight thousand men [II., 84]. General Magruder reported that he had eleven thousand men. Mr. Davis also says: After the first advance of the enemy, General Magruder was reenforced by some troops from the south side of James River, and General Wilcox's brigade, which had been previously detached from the army under General Johnston.

General Magruder's force was thus increased to about 20,000. The same order detached Early's, D. R. Jones's, and D. H.

The President, deeming this provision wholly insufficient for the defense of the capital, ordered McDowell with his corps of 33,510 men and 68 guns to remain, and charged him with the duty of covering and defending Washington. This led to a telegraphic correspondence, thus characterized in the President's letter to General McClellan, dated April 9th: Your dispatches complaining that you are not properly sustained, while they do not offend me, pain me very much. Then, after again explaining the detachment of Blenker and the retention of McDowell, Mr. Lincoln concludes with these noteworthy admonitions: I suppose the whole force which has gone forward to you is with you by this time; and if so, I think it is the precise time for you to strike a blow. By delay, the enemy will steadily gain on you — that is, he will gain faster b
