ere ordered to be sold under penalty of seizure. Of the four corvettes, two were bought by Prussia and two by Peru. One of the rams was sold to Prussia and the other, known as the Sphinx, to Denmark. Before her arrival in Copenhagen the Schleswig-Holstein war was over, and the Danes, having no use for her, were well satisfied to have her taken off their hands without inquiring too closely into the character of the purchaser. In this way Bulloch got possession of her, and on the 30th of January, 1865, she was commissioned in the English Channel as the Stonewall, and started on a cruise under Captain T. J. Page. The Stonewall had not gone far before she sprang a leak and put into Ferrol for repairs. Here she was found by the Niagara and Sacramento, under Commodore T. T. Craven, who took up a position in the adjoining port of Coruña. On the 24th of March the Stonewall steamed out of Ferrol and lay for several hours off the entrance of Corufia; Craven, however, declined to join b

, General Meade wrote to General Peck, saying: That with the united force under your command, you should have held in check and defeated the designs of such superior numbers, is a fact of which you may well be proud, as the most practical proof of your own skill and the gallantry of your troops. On the 1st of January, 1865, General Slocum wrote: I think the gratitude of the nation is due to you and your gallant little army for the important services performed at Suffolk. On the 30th of January, 1865, General Stoneman wrote: I have always looked upon it as a most fortunate thing for us that you were enabled to hold Longstreet at Suffolk. It has been asserted that Longstreet joined Lee at the battle of Chancellorsville. Lee, in his report of that battle, page. 5, says: General Longstreet, with two divisions of his corps, was detailed for service south <*> James River in February, and did not rejoin the army until after the battle of Chancellorsville. But when we consider the

The Senate, on motion of Mr. Brown, receded from its amendment, and the joint resolution was passed, and was approved by the President on the third of March, 1865. No. Lxxxvi.--The Bill for the Better Organization of the Pay Department of the Army. In the Senate, on the thirtieth of January, 1865, Mr. Wilson introduced a bill for the better organization of the pay department of the army, which was read twice, and referred to the Military Committee. On the ninth of February, Mr. Wilson reported it back without amendment. It provided that the Paymaster-General should have the rank, pay, and emoluments of brigadier-general. That there should be added to the pay department two assistant paymaster-generals, who should be ex-officio inspector-generals of the department, with t

[Pursuing our policy of giving the preference to reports from original Mss., we publish the following from an autograph Ms. of the accomplished soldier who prepared it. So far as we are aware, it has never before been published in any form, and it will be, therefore, an important addition to the material of military students, as well as of deep interest to all desiring to see some account of that campaign.] Columbus, Mississippi, January 30th, 1865. Colonel — I have the honor to offer the following as my official Report of the operations of my corps during the offensive movement commencing at Palmetto station, Georgia, September 29th, 1864. It is impracticable now, in consequence of the movement of troops and my temporary absence from the army, to obtain detailed reports from my division commanders. As a corps commander, I regarded the morale of the army greatly impaired after the fall of Atlanta, and in fact before its fa
