so much greater than the ability to supply it, that Columbus alone was as yet in a state of defense. The fortifications had been delayed for lack of labor, and from the difficulty of employing efficiently troops unused and unwilling to build them. The call for slaves for this purpose had been responded to slowly and feebly, as has been shown. The condition of the Confederates in that quarter may be understood from an extract from a letter of General Polk to General Johnston, dated January 11, 1862: My available force is greatly reduced by sickness and absence . . . There are many regiments in my division who are without arms, and several poorly armed. The unarmed regiments are stationed at Forts Pillow, Donelson, and Henry; at Trenton, Union City, and Henderson Station. In my return you will find embraced the brigade of Brigadier-General Alcorn. His men are sixty-day troops from Mississippi, who are armed with every variety of weapon. They are sick with measles, raw, an

Butler and Com. Stringham five months before. See Vol. I., p. 599. The naval part of this expedition consisted of 31 steam gunboats, mounting 94 guns; the military of about 11,500 men, mainly from New England, organized in three bridges, under Gens.

C., it remained in that Department until August, when it sailed for Virginia; it was then in Stevens's Division, Ninth Corps, in which command it fought at Manassas and Chantilly.

A large number of Kansas Indians are now in this city awaiting the return of Commissioner Dole from the interior of the State. They came here on various errands — more particularly, however, for the purpose of learning in what manner, and for how long a time they can enlist in the service of the Federal Government. Yesterday we were visited by a delegation of Indians representing the Weas, Peorias, Miamia, and Piankashaws. Major Battese, the well-known interpreter, and Major G. A. Colton, Agent, accompanied them. The Major has been in Kansas thirty-seven years, is a man of wealth and large experience. He said the number of warriors in these tribes was very small, but they were all loyal. They want to fight, but desire to have their homes protected. They would like to have a Government force act with them. They had seen Gen. Hunter: he was glad to learn that the Indians wanted to enlist,
Commodore Forrest's Reply. flag-Officer's Office, Dock-Yard, Gosport, Va., Jan. 11, 1862. Sir: The Commandant has received the proposition from the blacksmiths, finishers, and strikers of this yard, offering gratuitously to work until eight o'clock every night on the Merrimac, in order to expedite her completion. He embraces an early occasion to express his high appreciation of the loyalty which influenced them in making this tender of their services, affording evidence, if any were wanting, of their patriotism and zeal in the discharge of their duties. If it should be found necessary to require their services as expressed, they will be duly notified by the executive officer of the yard. Respectfully, your obedient servant, F. Forrest, Flag-Officer, etc. Mr. James A. Farmer, Master Blacksmith, N. Y. G. --Norfolk Day-Book, Feb. 6.

and afraid of the offended Indians, deserted Roanoke Island in one of Drake's ships. Other attempts to settle there failed. In the American Civil War Roanoke Island became historically conspicuous. Early in 1862 an expedition was fitted out at Hampton Roads for operations against the island. It was composed of over 100 war-vessels and transports, commanded by Commodore L. M. Goldsborough, and bearing 16,000 troops under Gen. Ambrose E. Burnside. The armament left the Roads on Sunday, Jan. 11, 1862, with its destination unknown excepting to certain officers. The land force was divided into three brigades, commanded respectively by Gens. J. G. Foster, J. L. Reno, and J. G. Parke. The fleet was divided into two columns for action, intrusted respectively to the care of Commanders S. F. Hazard and S. C. Rowan. Its destination was Pamlico Sound, through Hatteras Inlet, and its chief object was the capture of Roanoke Island, which the Confederates had strongly fortified with batte
