orities frequently violating its provisions, and the Confederates carrying them out to the letter. The Report of Judge Ould, our Commissioner of Exchange, of December, 1863, and the accompanying documents, fully sustain this allegation, and we regret that our space will not allow us to give these documents in full. We give the preliminary report, which indicates the points made: Commissioner Ould's report. Confederate States of America, war Department, Richmond, Virginia, December 5th, 1863. Hon. James A. Seddon, Secretary of War: Sir — I have the honor to submit the accompanying correspondence between the Federal Agent of Exchange and myself: I have selected from the mass of correspondence, such letters as relate to matters of general interest, and especially to the subjects of controversy between us. 1.

ddition to the defenses at the forts, the Confederates worked with great diligence to improvise a fleet of men-of-war, using for this purpose a number of heavy tugs that had been employed in towing vessels up and down the river, and some merchant steamers. These, with the ram Manassas and the iron-clad Louisiana, made in all twelve vessels. The whole naval force was nominally under the control of Commander John K. Mitchell, C. S. N. The finding of the Confederate Court of Inquiry, December 5th, 1863, states that Commander Mitchell assumed command of the Louisiana at New Orleans, April 20th.--Editors. The iron-clad Louisiana, mounting 16 heavy guns, with a crew of 200 men, was a powerful vessel, almost impervious to shot, and was fitted with a shot-proof gallery from which her sharp-shooters could fire at an enemy with great effect. Her machinery was not completed, however, and during the passage of the Union fleet she was secured to the river-bank and could only use one broad

So the battle of Gettysburg was begun.--see letter of General Cutler to the Governor of Pennsylvania, November 5, 1863. the regimental flag of the fifty-sixth Pennsylvania, bearing the disk badge of the First Army Corps, of red color, with seven holes in it, as evidences of the strife in which it was engaged, was presented to the loyal League of Philadelphia, by Colonel Hoffman, on the 5th of December, 1863. in their house it is preserved as a precious memento of the gallantry of one of the most noted of the regiments of Pennsylvania. Under the leadership of Colonel (afterward General) Hoffman, it became perfect in discipline, and ever ready for daring service. In Pope's Army of Virginia, at Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and Grant's campaigns in 1864, it was always conspicuous. So much was the commander loved and honored by the officers and men of his regim

It is therefore the duty of every officer and soldier to aid in carrying out that purpose, by every proper means, irrespective of personal predilection. To do this effectually, the former condition of the blacks, their change of relation, the new rights acquired by them, the new obligations imposed upon them, the duty of the Government to them, the great stake they have in the war, and the claims their ignorance, and the helplessness of their women and children, make upon each of us who hold a higher grade in social and political life, must all be carefully considered. It will also be taken into account that the colored soldiers have none of the machinery of State aid, for the suppo

General,—I am instructed to say to you that, while the movements of the enemy appear to indicate an attempt to operate within the limits of the Second and Third Military Districts, rather than any effort to effect a lodgment within your district, nevertheless your troops should be held constantly on the alert and ready for any effort to surprise you.
