im lay nearly or quite one-fourth of his army, killed or wounded; he knew that his own ammunition was running low; lie did not know that Lee's was even more completely exhausted. If he had ordered a general advance, and been repelled from Seminary ridge by such a fire as had met and crushed the Rebel assailants of Cemetery hill, lie would have been reproached as rash and fool-hardy by many who have deemed him deficient in courage or in heartiness because he did not make the Union a Fourth-of-July present of the remnant of Lee's army. His real and grave error dated several days back of this. He had, on assuming command, been authorized to do as he judged best with French's force on Maryland Heights, and Couch's in central Pennsylvania. Had he, on deciding to fight Lee so soon as circumstances favored, ordered both these to join him at the earliest moment, lie would now have been consciously master of the situation, and might have blocked Lee's return to Virginia. But he gave no s

Meantime, Gen.Terry's division, 4,000 strong, and Gen. Strong's brigade of 2,500, were quietly transferred to Folly island, under the cover of darkness, and kept out of sight, while Vogdes made a great parade of strengthening his defenses as though he apprehended an attack. At length, all being ready, Gen. Terry, with 3,800 men, was conveyed July 8 P. M. up the Stono, and menaced the Rebel works on the south end of James island; while 2,000 men, under Gen. Strong, were silently embarked Evening of July 9. on small boats in Folly river, and rowed stealthily to the junction of Lighthouse inlet; where they were halted, behind a screen of marsh-grass, while Vogdes's batteries on the north end of Folly island broke, at daylight, July 10. the slumbers of the unsuspecting foe.

own undoubted satisfaction. But, to all practical intents, the battle of Olustee was the first and last event of consequence that happened in Florida during the year 1864, and thence to the close of the war. In South Carolina, while the long-range range firing at Charleston from Morris island and the surrounding forts was lazily and irregularly kept up through most of the year, eliciting fitful responses from Rebel forts and batteries, there was no movement of importance; save that, in July, four brigades (Birney's, Saxton's, Hatch's, and Schimmelfennig's) were quietly assembled from the sea islands held by us and from Florida, pushed July 2. over to Seabrook island, and thence, attended by two gunboats on the North Edisto, to John's island, and so to a place called Deckerville, July 4. two miles west of Legareville. The weather wounded, of course;) with 5 guns and 2,000 was intensely hot; the dusty roads lined by thick brush, which excluded air, yet afforded little or
ed riders rode with agony in their faces; and, for at least ten minutes, it seemed as if we were going to destruction together. It was my fortune to see the first battle of Bull Run, and to be among those who made that celebrated midnight retreat toward Washington. The retreat of the 4th division was as much a rout as that of the first Federal army, with the exception that fewer men were engaged, and our men fought here with a valor that was not shown on that serious sad, mock-heroic day in July. A grumbling private of the 83d Ohio thus sums up his view of this affair: The battle was shockingly managed. It was, no doubt, a surprise on the General commanding. He endeavored to charge the enemy with a baggage-train, but it did n't work. * * * Gens. Banks and Franklin did n't believe there was any force in our front but a few skirmishers, and, by their incredulity, lost tile day. A letter to The Missouri Republican has the following: About 3 P.

In March, April, and May-though the Legal Tender act had meantime been passed and the issue of treasury notes (or greenbacks) commenced — the range was from 1 1/2 to 3 1/2 per cent.; but in June it mounted to 9 1/2; and in July (after McClellan's failure before Richmond) to 20 1/2 per cent. In August, it fell off-varying from 12 1/2 to 15 1/2; but in September it mounted to 24 1/2, and in October to 36 1/2 per cent.
