am as the coming man of this war. He is a brusque, imperative, and rather overbearing man with his equals and superiors, but his rapidity of movement, fertility of resource, and consummate military capacity are recognized by the rank and file, with whom he is wonderfully popular. A. soldier's account. A private in the Thirteenth regiment of Ohio Volunteers, Colonel Smith, gives the following account in the Cincinnati Commercial: camp Huddleston, Thirteenth regiment O. V. I., Nov. 19, 1861.

Doc. 177. proclamation of Gov. Harris. Executive Headquarters, Nashville, Tenn., Nov. 19, 1861. To the Officers in command of the Militia of the State of Tennessee in the Second, Third and Fourth Divisions: The danger of invasion upon the part of the Federal forces is imminent. This invasion threatens the quiet and security of your homes, and involves the security of your sacred rights of person and property. The warning example of Maryland, Missouri and Kentucky bids you, if you would preserve your firesides, your homes, and the sanctity of your wives and daughters, to meet the despotic invader and his minions at the threshold of your State and drive him back. Let the soil of Tennessee be preserved from his unhallowed touch, and let him know that in defence of our liberties and our altars every Tennesseean is ready to yield up his life. General A. S. Johnston, commanding the forces of the Confederate States in this department, in view of this threatened danger, has call
Doc. 178. Message of Jefferson Davis, November 19, 1861. The Congress of the Confederate States met at Richmond, Va., on the 18th instant. There was barely a quorum present, and no business was done. The only interesting incident of the sitting of the 19th was the reception of the Message of Jefferson Davis, which is as follows: To the Congress of the Confederate States: The few weeks which have elapsed since your adjournment, have brought us so near the close of the year that we are now able to sum up its general results. The retrospect is such as should fill the hearts of our people with gratitude to Providence for His kind interposition in their behalf. Abundant yields have rewarded the labor of the agriculturist, whilst the manufacturing industry of the Confederate States was never so prosperous as now. The necessities of the times have called into existence new branches of manufacture, and given a fresh impulse to the activity of those heretofore in operation. The
Doc. 182. capture of the Harvey Birch. November 19, 1861. The voyage of the Nashville. The Confederate States steamer Nashville, Captain Pegram, left Charleston on the night of the 26th of October, at eleven o'clock, passing over the bar at twelve. When she started the weather was thick and cloudy, but just as she was crossing the bar the weather cleared up, and the moon rose brightly, lighting up in full view to the eastward, distant about four miles, two steamers of the blockading ates. This was denied by Commander Pegram and officers, who stated that the only document that Captain Nelson and officers were requested to sign was one of which the following is a copy: Confederate States steamer Nashville, at sea, November 19, 1861. We, the undersigned, officers and passengers on board the United States ship Harvey Birch, being now prisoners on board the Confederate States steamer Nashville, do pledge to our own captain our sacred honor not to bear arms against or
Doc. 197 1/2. Message of Gov. Brown, of Ga. Executive Department, Milledgeville, Nov. 19, 1861. To the Senate: In response to the call made upon me by the Senate, I herewith transmit copies of such correspondence between me and the Secretary of War, relating to the defence of the coast of Georgia, as is, in my judgment, proper to be made public at the present time. By reference to this correspondence it will be seen that I have, from time to time, since the middle of April last, urgently solicited the Secretary of War to place upon the coast of this State such force as was necessary to the protection and security of our people. While his responses to my various calls have been kind and conciliatory, promising the protection which might be needed, his sense of duty has caused him to withhold as large a force as I have considered necessary, or the embarrassments by which he has been surrounded have rendered it impossible for him to do what his sense of propriety dictated.
