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
Doc. 166. the capture of the Mabel. Commodore Dupont's report. the following official report from Commodore Dupont describes the capture of the British schooner Mabel: flag-ship Wabash, Port Royal Harbob, November 18, 1861. sir: I have the honor to report that Commander E. M. Yard, of the United States steamer Dale, captured the British schooner Mabel, on the evening of the 15th instant, in lat. 31 deg. 10 min., and lon. 80 deg. 52 min. 30 sec. west, and brought her into this harbor. She purported to be from Havana and bound for New York, but at the time of her capture was heading for St. Catherine's Sound. Her cargo consists of seven bales blankets, four cases cloth, two cases saddles and bridles, three boxes starch, twenty-five boxes tin, one hundred and twenty boxes coffee, twenty barrels potatoes, three hundred and fifty pigs of lead, thirty bags of shot, one box shoes, six bags arrow root, one case pistols, (revolvers,) and two cases of cavalry swords.
Doc. 172. the slaves not rebellious. Letter from Gen. Drayton to Gov. Pickens. camp Lee, Hardeeville, Nov. 18, 1861. To his Excellency, Governor F. W. Pickens: sir: At the request of your Excellency, made to me yesterday at these Headquarters, I have the honor of presenting my views of the present attitude and behavior of the negroes in this portion of the State intrusted to my immediate command. So far from there being any insurrectionary feeling among them, I can assure your Excellency that I have neither seen nor heard of any act of pillaging, incendiarism, or violence in any direction. It is true that the negroes of a few plantations have shown a spirit of insubordination, by refusing to move higher up the country, when ordered to do so by their owners, but this disobedience should be assigned rather to a feeling of dismay and utter helplessness at being left alone and unprotected by the precipitate abandonment by their masters of their plantations, than from a
ssembled upon the call of the President. Gov. Taylor's proclamation. State of North Carolina, Executive Department. To the People of North Carolina: Whereas, an ordinance of the Convention of North Carolina, passed on Monday, the 18th November, 1861, directs the Provisional Governor of this Commonwealth in the following words, to wit: Whereas, it is desirable that this State shall be represented in the Federal Congress, and maintain her due weight in the councils of the Union, therefordistrict, on Thursday, the 28th day of November, 1861, and cast their ballots for a representative of the State in Congress. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the great seal of the State to be affixed, at Hatteras, this, the eighteenth day of November, in the year of our Lord eighteen hundred and sixty-one, and of the independence of the United States the eighty-sixth. Marble Nash Taylor. By the Governor, Alonzo J. Stow, Private Secretary. Hatteras, Nov. 18, 1861.
Doc. 174. Albert Pike's safeguard. Washington, Nov. 18, 1861. A letter from A. G. Boone, Indian Agent for Upper Arkansas, has been received at the Indian Bureau, enclosing letters of safeguard issued by Albert Pike, who calls himself Commissioner of the Confederate States to the Indian nations and tribes west of Arkansas, in favor of a band of the Comanches. This document was obtained from the band in council. They were greatly astonished on being informed that they had made a treaty with enemies of the Government and of their Great Father at Washington, and wished the safeguard to be sent to Washington to be destroyed, or used as their Great Father might see fit. Armed Indians are at Fort Wise in great numbers, and are anxious to make a treaty and enter in the agency at that place. They number five hundred or six hundred lodges, and, from their number and bravery, more trouble may be apprehended from them than from all other tribes, if they are not satisfied. The fo
Rebellion Record: a Diary of American Events: Documents and Narratives, Volume 3. (ed. Frank Moore), Speech of Judge C. P. Daly, on the presentation of flags to the sixty-ninth regiment N. Y. S. V., Nov. 18, 1861. (search)
Speech of Judge C. P. Daly, on the presentation of flags to the sixty-ninth regiment N. Y. S. V., Nov. 18, 1861. Col. Nugent: I am requested by this lady beside me, Mrs. Chaflin, the daughter of an Irishman, and the wife of an officer in the regular army of the United States, and by the ladies associated with her, to offer to your regiment the accompanying stand of colors. In committing to your charge these two flags, I need scarcely remind you that the history of the one is pregnant with meaning in the light which it sheds upon the history of the other. This green flag, with its ancient harp, its burst of sunlight, and its motto from Ossian in the Irish tongue, recalls through the long lapse of many centuries, the period when Ireland was a nation, and conveys more eloquently than by words how her nationality was lost through the practical working of that doctrine of secession for which the rebellious States of the South have taken up arms. The period of Ireland's greatness wa
Doc. 176. Jeff. Thompson's exploit at Price's landing, Mo., November 18, 1861. A correspondent at St. Louis, Mo., gives the following account of this affair:-- B. F. Livingston, the agent deputed by the U. S. Government to travel on the steamer Platte Valley, was put in charge of that steamer at Cape Girardeau, and brought her to this port. We learn from him some interesting particulars of the trip of the bost since she left Cairo, Ill. When opposite Price's landing, the boat was hailed from shore by two men, attired in military overcoats, who were supposed to be Federal scouts. It turned out, however, that they were the redoubtable Jeff. Thompson and his adjutant. As soon as the boat was made fast to the bank, Jeff. raised his hand, and instantly two hundred men sprung in view from their places of concealment in the immediate vicinity, and quickly one hundred rushed on board, preceded by Jeff. himself. The leader inquired for the captain of the boat, and asked if the Pl
ted from the culture of cotton in the South, perhaps four times as many elsewhere, who have found subsistence in the various employments growing out of its use, will be forced also to change their occupation. While the war which is waged to take from us the right of self-government can never attain that end, it remains to be seen how far it may work a revolution in the industrial system of the world, which may carry suffering to other lands as well as to our own. In the mean time we shall continue this struggle in humble dependence upon Providence, from whose searching scrutiny we cannot conceal the secrets of our hearts, and to whose rule we confidently submit our destinies. For the rest we shall depend upon ourselves. Liberty is always won where there exists the unconquerable will to be free, and we have reason to know the strength that is given by a conscious sense not only of the magnitude but of the righteousness of our cause. Jefferson Davis. Richmond, November 18, 1861.
Doc. 181. Gov. Taylor's proclamation, at Hatteras, N. C., Nov. 20, 1861. To the People of North Carolina: On Monday, the 18th of November, 1861, a provisional or temporary Government for this Commonwealth was instituted at Hatteras, Hyde County, by a convention of the people, in which more than half the counties of the State were represented by delegates and authorized proxies. Ordinances were adopted by the Convention declaring vacant all State offices the incumbents whereof have disqualified themselves to hold them by violating their official oaths to support the Constitution of the United States, which North Carolina has solemnly accepted as the supreme law of the land; pronouncing void and of no effect the ordinance of secession from the Federal Union, passed by the Convention assembled at Raleigh, May 20, 1861; continuing in full force the Constitution and laws of the State, as contained in the revised code of 1855-6, together with all subsequent acts not inconsistent
