cCall's division of McDowell's corps should follow as speedily as might be. Gen. McClellan responded : June 7. I am glad to learn that you are pressing forward reenforcements so vigorously. I shall be in perfect readiness to move forward and take Richmond the moment McCall reaches here, and the ground will admit the passage of artillery. I have advanced my pickets about a mile to-day; driving off the Rebel pickets, and securing a very advantageous position. He soon afterward June 10. telegraphed: I am completely checked by the weather. The roads and fields are literally impassable for artillery — almost so for infantry. The Chickahominy is in a dreadful state. We have another rain-storm on our hands. I shall attack as soon as the weather and ground will permit; but there will be a delay, the extent of which no one can foresee, for tile season is altogether abnormal. In view of these circumstances, I present for your consideration the propriety of detailing lar
The bill further provided that each alleged fugitive shall have compulsory process against witnesses deemed essential to his defense, and that such witnesses should be sworn and heard, irrespective of their color. Mr. Wade promptly reported May 21. this bill; but it shared the fate of its predecessor. Mr. Wilson, of Mass., proposed May 24. to amend the bill of 1850 aforesaid, so as to secure to every one claimed as a fugitive slave a trial by jury; which, though once taken up June 10.--Yeas 25; Nays 10--failed to command the attention of the Senate. Soon after the meeting of the next Congress, Mr. Stevens, of Pa., submitted Dec. 14, 1863. to the House a bill contemplating an absolute repeal, not only of the act of 1850, but also of the Fugitive Slave act of 1793. Messrs. Ashley, of Ohio, and Julian, of Ind., introduced bills of like tenor. Mr. Julian further proposed that the Judiciary Committee be instructed to report a bill to repeal the most obnoxious provisio

Sattenwhite, 6th Missouri (Rebel), who fought throughout the siege, notes, under date of May 26: We have been on half rations of coarse corn-bread and poor beef for ten days. June 1: We are now eating bean-bread, and half-rations at that. June 3: We are now eating half rations bread, rice, and corn-meal mixed. June 10: Our beef gave out to-day. We are now drawing one-quarter of a pound of bacon to the man. June 18: Our rations changed: 1/4 pound of flour, 1/4 pound of bacon to the man: quite light. and ammunition--42,000 percussion caps having been smuggled in to him after the investment; yet lie was ultimately reduced to ten per man.

The Heshians burned our commissary with a shell to-day. June 10.--Another day and night has passed, and this poor, worn-out garrison has received no assistance. We have lain in the ditches twenty days, and still there is no prospect of succor — but I truly hope we will soon receive reenforcements. The men orts, and Lee impelling his triumphant legions across the Potomac, the chances were decidedly against the undisturbed prosecution of this siege to a successful issue. After a fortnight's steady digging and firing, a fresh attempt was made, June 10. under a heavy fire of artillery, to establish our lines within attacking distance of the enemy's works, so as to avoid the heavy losses incurred in moving over the ground in their front. Our men advanced at 3 A. M., working their way through t
, and thence pushing over the North Anna by Chilesburg and Mount Pleasant, over the upper branches of the North Anna, June 10. striking the Central railroad at Trevilian's, routing a body of Rebel horse, under Wade Hampton, that interfered with h, defending the approach up the river. The combination failed, though it should have succeeded. Gillmore advanced June 10. unresisted to within two miles of the city, where he drove in the enemy's skirmishers and halted — or rather, recoiled works, bore, of course, no comparison to ours. It had now been established, at a cost of fully 10,000 men, Between June 10 and 20, Meade's losses were — killed, 1,198; wounded, 6,853; missing, 1,614: total, 9,665.

f his force to Jo. Johnston, then resisting Sherman in northern Georgia. Maj.-Gen. S. D. Sturgis--in spite of overwhelming proofs of his aggravated unfitness — was again intrusted with the command. His force consisted of 9,000 infantry and artillery, with 3,000 cavalry led by Gen. Grierson. Sturgis had advanced E. S. E. nearly 100 miles, through West Tennessee and northern Mississippi, meeting little opposition till near Guntown, on the Mobile railroad ; where Grierson's troopers found June 10. Forrest's cavalry, and pushed it vigorously back on his infantry, which was strongly posted on a semi-circular ridge or crest, with a naked slope in front, and a small creek at its foot, which could with difficulty be forded by infantry at a few points only. Word was sent back to the infantry, now 5 or 6 miles behind ; and, in an intensely hot day, they were pushed forward at double-quick to the scene of action, arriving thoroughly blown and incapable of exertion. As if this were not fol
