H. Hobart Ward, Colonel Thirty-eighth Regiment, Second Brigade, Third Division. Official report of Lieut.-Col. Farnsworth. Headquarters Thirty-Eighth regiment, (Second Scott Life Guard,) N. Y. V., camp Scott, near Alexandria, Va., July 29, 1861. Col. J. H. H. Ward, Commanding Second Brigade, Third Division: sir: In compliance with my duty, I respectfully submit the following report of the operation of my regiment during the recent battle at or near Bull Run on the 21st of July, 1ackburn's Ford. I am, sir, very respectfully, your ob't serv't, Thos. A. Davies, Col. Comd'g 2d Brigade, Fifth Division, Army N. E. Virginia. T. H. Cowdrey, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General. Major Barnard's report. Washington,, July 29, 1861. Capt. E. B. Fry, Assistant Adjutant-General: sir: On the 18th of July, at about 9 A. M., I joined the commanding general about two miles beyond Fairfax Court House, on the road to Centreville. He was then about going to Sangster's, and i
mpaigning purposes. Washington is quiet to-day as yet. There are considerable additions to be made to the works on the other side, and, indeed, there is a hill in front of one of the redoubts which commands it a trifle, and which it is an oversight not to fortify. In a few days, if a column is ready, I hope to be able to accompany it. Mr. Russell's Third letter on Bull Run The rebel army could have entered Washington — He speculates as to the reasons why it did not. Washington, July 29, 1861. On this day week the Confederates could have marched into the capital of the United States. They took no immediate steps to follow up their unexpected success. To this moment their movements have betrayed no fixity of purpose or settled plan to pursue an aggressive war, or even to liberate Maryland if they have the means of doing so. And, indeed, their success was, as I suspected, not known to them in its full proportions, and their loss, combined, perhaps, with the condition of
Doc. 130.-the peace proposition. The following is the Peace Proposition, offered by Mr. Cox, of Ohio, in the House of Representatives, on the 29th of July, 1861: Mr. Cox. I ask leave to offer the following resolution: whereas, it is the part of rational beings to terminate their differences by rational methods, and inasmuch as the differences between the United States authorities and the seceding States has resulted in a civil war, characterized by bitter hostility and extreme atrocity; and although the party in the seceded States are guilty of breaking the national unity and resisting the national authority; yet, Be it resolved, First. That while we make undiminished and increased exertions by our navy and army to maintain the integrity and stability of this Government, the common laws of war, consisting of those maxims of humanity, moderation, and honor, which are a part of the international code, ought to be observed by both parties, and for a stronger reason than
Doc. 140.-General Hurlbut's proclamation. Headquarters line of Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad, Hannibal, July 29th, 1861. The General commanding on this line has now sufficient information to assure him that at all important points on this great road, there are persons of property and influence who can check these predatory bands, and he is determined that they shall. Divisions and sub-divisions will be made as soon as practicable, and portions of the road committed to the hands of responsible men, without reference to political opinions. As soon as this arrangement can be effected the troops under his command will be encamped at some central and convenient spot on the line of the road, and the care of the track, depots, bridges, and telegraph wires of the road committed to the local authorities; and after this is done, any neglect or connivance with marauding parties, resulting in injury, will be promptly and severely punished, as herein indicated. All persons,
r a knowledge of their business, and the benefits to be attained from a company fund, or wholesome cooking, will hardly be available until the close of the war, if then. In the last report I had the honor to make to this commission, I suggested some changes and made some recommendation based on the impression that a thorough and positive reform was desired. Satisfied that such is not the case on the part of any of the constituted authorities, and quite convinced that nothing but the most insignificant changes will be countenanced by the powers that be, I would now modify my former views by gently intimating that the engagement of one good cook for each regiment might possibly be productive of some benefit. With many thanks for your powerful assistance and kindly cooperation, and trusting that the great reforms you meditate may ultimately receive that appreciation they merit, I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant, James M. Sanderson. Washington, D. C., July 29, 1861.
