of Senators around him, and of Mr. King, his colleague .on the committee, he would withdraw the amendment and introduce it as a separate bill. Mr. Johnson, of Missouri, moved to amend by adding as an additional section, that this Congress recommend the Governors of the several States to convene their Legislatures for the purpose of calling an election to select two delegates from each congressional district, to meet in general convention at Louisville, in Kentucky, on the first Monday in September next; the purpose of the said convention to be to devise measures for the restoration of peace to our country. Mr. Powell, of Kentucky, demanded the yeas and nays. Mr. Carlisle, of Virginia, thought the proposition inopportune. Mr. McDougall, of California, wished merely to amend the remark made by the Senator from Virginia; he says this proposition would be inopportune; I say it would be cowardly. The amendment was rejected; nine Senators voted for it, and twenty-nine against it. The

After the disastrous rout on the right, General Garfield made his way back to the battlefield, (showing thereby that the road was open to all who might chose to follow it to where duty called,) and came to where my command was engaged. The brigade which made so determined a resistance on the crest of the narrow ridge during all that long September afternoon had been commanded by General Garfield, when he belonged to my division. The men remarked his presence with much satisfaction, and were delighted that he was a witness of the splendid fighting they were doing. Early in the afternoon my command was joined by portions of two regiments belonging to Van Cleve's division, the Seventeenth Kentucky, Colonel Stout commanding, and the Forty-fourth Indiana, Lieutenant-Colonel Aldrick commanding. The fact that these parts of regiments, p

Upon reaching Kingston, I urged the transportation agent to send forward additional cars for that portion of the brigade still at Rome, and he assured me that he would do so promptly. I subsequently telegraphed him from Ringgold to hasten on the rest of the command. The result was that the Sixteenth. South Carolina volunteers and my battery did not join me until the morning of the twenty-third of September, three days after the battle. Upon arriving at the terminus of the railroad, Catoosa (wood station), on the morning of the nineteenth, I rode forward to Ringgold for orders and to obtain wagons for my reserve ammunition, my own train being left with the division upon my departure for Rome. In a few hours I received orders from the General commanding to guard and convoy to the army a large ordnance train that would be formed and reported to me. This train was not reported until near ten o
ements will be made for the demolition of magazines and armament; but, of course, at that point it will not take place until the last moment, according to instructions from these or Department headquarters. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, R. S. Ripley, Brigadier-General, commanding. Official: Wm. F. Nance, A. A. G. Official: E. Kearny, A. A. A. G. Telegrams giving effective force at Wagner--State of Affairs at that work, etc. I. By signal, received at 12:45 A. M., September sixth, 1863. Morris Island, September 5, 1863. Captain Nance, A. A. G.: I had nine hundred, and not fourteen hundred men. About one hundred of these to-day were killed and wounded. The parapet of salient is badly breached. The whole fort is much weakened. A repetition to-morrow of to-day's fire will make the fort almost a ruin. The mortar fire is still very heavy and fatal, and no important work can be done. Is it desirable to sacrifice the garrison? To continue to hold it is to

On July 1, 1865, at which time the books and accounts of the association were transferred to my hands, there was in bank a balance of$3,969 29 Donations from that time to the close of the association1,350 00 Amount advanced by Treasurer130 06    $5,449 35 The expenditures for the same period, to wit, for the months of June, July, August, and September, have been for rent, salaries, and current expenses$5,449 35 Thus closing my account for moneys received. This statement does not include a number of long-standing unpaid accounts of the association for rent, etc., etc., which have been generously assumed by the United States Sanitary Commission to the amount of $7,307 04. In this connection the fact must not be lost sight of, that the association has been greatly relieved in a pecuniary point of view from the location of sever
