Doc. 162. affair of the schooner Maryland. New York times account, Baltimore, Friday, Nov. 15, 1861. from Lieut. C. H. Colburn, of the Eleventh Massachusetts regiment, Company H, attached to Gen. Hooker's brigade, on the Maryland shore of the Potomac, and who arrived in this city this evening, I have the following interesting particulars of a rebel attack upon the schooner Maryland. The schooner was loaded with wood, and yesterday, while passing the rebel battery off Pig Point, and directly off the encampment of the Massachusetts Eleventh, became becalmed. The crew, immediately on perceiving preparations making by the rebels to attack their vessel from the Virginia shore, dropped their anchor, and taking to their boats, rowed away to the United States flotilla, which was anchored about four miles up the river. Lieut. W. L. Chandler, of the Eleventh, in command, and accompanied by Lieut. Colburn and two or three others, immediately leaped into a small boat and put off

General Benham conversed with him, received his last wishes, and placed him in care of the brigade surgeon, but he died on the evening of the 14th. The following letter, addressed to General Floyd, shows that General Benham has done all in his power to regard the last wishes of the brave but fatally mistaken man: Headquarters First Provl. Brigade, U. S. Forces, Nov. 15, 1861, at Hawkins' Farm, Five miles S. E. of Fayetteville. Brig.-Gen. J. B. Floyd, C. S. A.: sir: In the skirmish which occurred yesterday between the United States forces under my command and your brigade, I regret to be obliged to inform you that Colonel St. George Croghan, commanding your cavalry regiment, as he stated to me, was mortally wounded.

Davis' proclamation: by the President-A proclamation. Whereas it hath pleased Almighty God, the Sovereign Disposer of events, to protect and defend the Confederate States hitherto, in their conflict with their enemies, and to be unto them a shield: And, whereas with grateful thanks we recognize His hand, and acknowledge that not unto us, but unto Him, belongeth the victory; and in humble dependence upon His Almighty strength, and trusting in the justness of our cause, we appeal to Him, that He may set at naught the efforts of our enemies, and put them to confusion and shame; Now, therefore, I, Jefferson Davis, President of the Confederate States, in view of the impending conflict, do hereby set apart Friday, the 15th day of November, as a day of fasting, humiliation, and prayer; and I do hereby invite the Reverend Cle
Doc. 165. capture of a secession flag, at Manchester, Mo., Nov. 15, 1861. The following is an account of the capture, as given by the Missouri Republican: camp Herron, Mo., Ninth regiment Iowa Vols., Nov. 18, 1861. The commander of this post, having learned that a certain very fine secession flag that had waved defiantly from a flagstaff in the village of Manchester, twenty miles distant from this place, until the successes of the Union forces caused its supporters to conclude that, for the present, discretion would be the better part of valor, was still being very carefully preserved, its possessors boasting that they would soon be enabled to rehoist it, determined upon its capture. On the 15th inst., he directed First Lieutenant H. C. Bull, of Company C, of this regiment, to take charge of the expedition, and to detail fifteen good men for the purpose, which detail the lieutenant made from Company C. They left camp by the cars at half-past 5 P. M., landing at M
