that day will show articles which would have deterred a fainter-hearted man than myself from continuing. Yet I got all my ships off with just freight enough for ballast, and then, upon my recommendation, on the 1st of June the port of New Orleans was opened, postal communication with the rest of the country reestablished, and a collector of customs appointed for my department. Meantime I reported to the War Department as follows:-- headquarters Department of the Gulf, New Orleans, May 16, 1862. War Records, Series I., Vol. XV., page 423. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War:-- . . . . . . . . . . . . . . In accordance with the terms of my order No. 22 I have caused to be bought a very considerable quantity of sugar, but as yet very little cotton. This has gone very far to reassure the planters and factors. They are sending their agents everywhere into the interior to endeavor to stop the burning of the crops. Nobody can be better aware than myself that I have no right

ing it down packed in barrels of beef. I ascertained that all but three banks had gold enough with which to redeem every bill that they had issued which was then in circulation in New Orleans. One of the banks, the one whose money was up Red River, was made good by bringing that back. Notwithstanding this, the banks endeavored to make money by redeeming their bills in Confederate money. I accordingly issued, on the 16th of May, the following General Order No. 29:-- New Orleans, May 16, 1862. I. It is hereby ordered that neither the city of New Orleans, nor the banks thereof, exchange their notes, bills, or obligations for Confederate notes, bills, or bonds, nor issue any bill, note, or obligation payable in Confederate notes. II. On the 27th day of May inst., all circulation of, or trade in, Confederate notes and bills will cease within this department; and all sales or transfers of property made on or after that day, in consideration of such notes or bills, directly

Doc. 40.-the destruction of cotton. The rights of neutrals. confederate States of America, Department of State, Richmond, Va., May 16, 1862. sir: In answer to your communication of this morning, I have the honor to state that the government has no desire to destroy any cotton belonging to neutrals; but, on the contrary, is willing to extend to it full protection while in its power, provided the like protection can be made effective when the cotton may fall into the possession of the enemy. The past conduct of the Government of the United States, and passive attitude of neutral nations whose rights have been violated by the United States, have satisfied us that, if cotton belonging to neutrals be allowed to fall into the hands of the enemy, it will be seized and appropriated by them regardless of neutral rights, and that neutral powers will fail to afford any protection to the rights of their subjects when thus violated. If, however, as you suggest, any official assur
the echo, far and wide-- Frowning in its wrath, it rises, Spreads its dark wing o'er the land, Vetoes in its swelling fury, Gain, to lure the robber band. Burn the cotton! burn the cotton! Pile the white fleece high and higher, Till the heavens reflect the glory Kindled by the patriot's fire. This shall teach the haughty foeman, Startle him too late, to find Chains were never made for freemen, Chains the Southern heart to bind. Burn the cotton! burn the cotton! Flaming sparks, instead of seed, Shall be sown in death and terror To the mongrel, Yankee breed, And the crowns who nod attendance On the treacherous Federal's lure, Feel too late, the want and ruin, Unjust favor cannot cure. Burn the cotton! burn the cotton! Let the record boldly stand; Not a bale for “filthy lucre” -- All for Freedom to our land. Burn the cotton! burn the cotton! From its ashes there shall spring Heralds of a new-born nation, Claiming still that “Cotton's King!” Memphis, Tenn., May 16, 1862. E

is best to say so. It was all a humbug about my being struck by a piece of a shell at Williamsburg. That reminds me of a joke some of the youngsters played upon — at Yorktown. They sent him to see an immense shell that had fallen in our headquarters camp. He found a large oyster-shell . . . . I send you a photograph which I have just received from Gen. Blume, chief of artillery in the Prussian army. I knew him abroad, and the old gentleman writes to me occasionally. Telegram--May 16, 1862, White House.--Have just arrived over horrid roads. No further movement possible until they improve. This house is where Washington's courtship took place and where he resided when first married. I do not permit it to be occupied by any one, nor the grounds around. It is a beautiful spot directly on the banks of the Pamunkey. All well and in fine spirits. Hope to get our baggage up by water, otherwise will fare badly to-night. May 16, 11.30 P. M., White House. . . I rode over
ces from Yorktown and Williamsburg. Some came by water up the York, some by land. The march was a picturesque one, through a magnificent country arrayed in all the gorgeousness of a Virginia spring, with its meadows of green set between the wooded hills. Dotted here and there could be seen the mansions of planters, with their slave quarters in the rear. The progress was necessarily slow, for the roads were next to impassable and the rains still continued at intervals. It was the 16th of May, 1862, when the advanced corps reached White House, the ancestral home of the Lees. On The goal — the Confederate capitol: The North expected General McClellan to possess himself of this citadel of the Confederacy in June, 1862, and it seemed likely the expectation would be realized. In the upper picture we get a near view of the State House at Richmond, part of which was occupied as a Capitol by the Confederate Congress during the war. In this building were stored the records and
