McKeever, Assistant Adjutant-General: Yesterday afternoon Major Zagonyi, at the head of my guard, made a most brilliant charge upon a body of the enemy, thrown up in line of battle at their camp in Springfield, two thousand or two thousand two hundred strong.

Doc. 110. Southern foreign policy. Opinion of the Charleston Mercury, October 26, 1861. No one will dispute the gravity of the questions which attach to our foreign relations. But these questions have been, so far, and very naturally, subordinated to the great question of our very existence, which the fierce threats and enormous preparation of the Government at Washington might well put in doubt. But, although the threats are as loud as ever, the great army which was to have put them in execution has broken its ranks forever — no trumpet will call them to battle again; and, however new forces may be mustered and new generals commissioned, the decree of Manassas cannot be reserved. There may yet be much bloodshed and much suffering, but our independence is assured. It is time, thereore, even in the press and hurry of the war, to consider what our relations with the world are to be. Very soon after the establishment of the Government at Montgomery, three commissioners were s

Charles Smith, Assistant Adjutant-General, Brigadier-Gen. Stone's Division: sir: I have the honor to communicate to the General commanding the division, the facts and events connected with my brigade, in the advance across the Potomac, made under his order.

This order was obeyed, and they crossed, but were soon recalled.

Orders were received by me to have the Second New York and First Minnesota regiments of infantry at Edwards' Ferry, on Monday, the 21st in
