to keep the garrison from doing mischief, or the sad destruction of the Weehawken in a heavy December gale. The Weehawken lay at anchor in the outer harbor off Morris Island when the gale came on, and, in consequence of her hatches being left open, she foundered on the 6th of December, carrying down with her thirty <*>her crew. Gillmore continually strengthened his new position, and the Ironsides lay not far off, watching the main ship channel. Finally, on a dark night in October, October 6, 1863. a small vessel of cigar shape, having a heavy torpedo hanging from its bow, went silently down to blow the Ironsides into fragments. The sum of its exploit was the explosion of the mine by the side of the vessel, making her shiver a little, and casting up a huge column of water high in air. A little later, when Gillmore was told that the Confederates were mounting guns on the southeast face of Sumter, to command Fort Wagner, he opened October 26. upon that face of the fort his heavy

regiment. General Halbert E. Paine was its first colonel. The 3d Cavalry was attached to the Army of the Frontier, and, like many of the Western cavalry regiments, served in Missouri, Arkansas, and in the Indian Territory, fighting in unheard — of battles, and losing its men in engagements which are never mentioned in history and which were never lettered on the battle-flags of the Republic. One of the principal losses of the 3d Cavalry occurred at Banter Springs, Cherokee Nation, October 6, 1863, where one company (I) attached to General Blunt's headquarters was attacked by Quantrell's guerrillas and forced to retreat with a loss of 33 killed and 14 wounded. The quartermaster was killed, and, of a regimental band which accompanied General Blunt, not a man escaped, the enemy giving no quarter. Report Adj.-Gen. Wis., 1865, p. 621. The 1st Cavalry, also, lost 17 killed, 38 wounded, and 8 missing, in an affair at L'Anguille Ferry, Ark., August 3, 1862, the Chaplain of the Fi

It was the stronger with me, as one of my own divisions was there; but the path of duty, under my conception of my orders, or in the absence of any orders, was the same, and I felt compelled to follow it.

Major-General Hunter, President Court of Inquiry: sir: At Chattanooga, on the evening of October sixth, 1863, at a private interview, secured for me by a written request from General Thomas to General Rosecrans, I was informed for the first time that the Department Commander was dissatisfied with my official conduct at the battle of Chickamauga, on the twentieth of September, 1863. At the same time, General Rosecrans referred to statements made by Brigadier-Generals Brannan and Wood as the reasons for his unfavorable opinions.

ed out as vessels of war in a foreign port, because such vessels were originally built in a British port, I have to observe that such pretentions are entirely at variance with the principles of international law, and with the decisions of American courts of the highest authority; and I have only, in conclusion, to express my hope that you may not be instructed again to put forward claims which her Majesty's Government can not admit to be founded on any grounds of law or justice. On October 6, 1863, Seward, the Secretary of State of the United States government, replied to this declaration of Earl Russell, saying: The United States do insist, and must continue to insist, that the British Government is justly responsible for the damages which the peaceful, law-abiding citizens of the United States [!] sustain by the depredations of the Alabama. Earl Russell answered on October 26, 1863, thus: I must request you to believe that the principle contended for by her Majesty'
