had $60,000 worth of them. That question included the slaves of loyal men. In this matter I wanted the sanction of the government. I had adopted a theory on this question for myself in Maryland, and got rapped over the knuckles for it by Governor Andrew. I had learned what manner of man Scott was, and I was desirous to take instructions from him for my action but not for my law. If Mr. Hay had stopped at the point where he was led to doubt my authorship of contraband because I had not med to do duty with me at Fortress Monroe, had not been in his seat and explained the senselessness of the clamor. But one senator from my own State voted for me, the other, the senior senator, voting against me because of my difference with Governor Andrew on the slave question. In the meantime neither horses nor artillery came. I did, however, get a very valuable reinforcement of a California regiment and a half, at the head of which was Colonel Baker, who had had some experience in Mexic

her nose. This also stared me in the face: I had sent down food and necessaries for a three months stay. These were rapidly being consumed. I had left orders with my quartermaster and commissary that after I had been two months away from Boston they should send me provisions for ninety days more. But before the time arrived for them to act, they were deprived of their commissions, their appointments being rejected by the Senate. This was done by the influence and the malignity of Governor Andrew and his crew of patriots simply upon political grounds. Although I made requisition for a new quartermaster and commissary to be sent to me as soon as it could be done, they did not get to me until after I had been in New Orleans more than thirty days. Thus I was left without the services of a quartermaster and commissary who knew anything about the details of the expedition or its Map of lower Mississippi River provisions. I should have had no notice of what had happened or of

One Andrew, a cousin of my friend the Governor of Massachusetts, a high-toned gentleman (?), presented himself in the Louisiana Club with a breast-pin constructed of a thigh-bone of a Yankee killed on the Chickahominy, as he said. A young woman, blonde as for a living. Ah, in my country such men are classed as vagrants, having no visible means of support, and we send such men to the House of Correction for six months as vagrants. I will send you to the Parish Prison for three. Next came Mr. Andrew. You are charged with having exhibited a breast-pin in the Louisiana Club, claiming that it was made of the thigh-bone of a Yankee killed on the Chickahominy. Did you exhibit such a breast-pin? Yes, sir; I was wearing it. Did you say

bors. He went with me to the Army of the James, and such were his exertions that we had an army in better health than any other army in the field. He continued to serve with me until his own health failed. He died in the city of New York several years after the war. He was one of the truest friends I ever had. Lieut.-Col. Jonas H. French was also upon my staff for a short time in New Orleans after he had been deprived of his command of the Thirty-First Massachusetts Volunteers by Governor Andrew. When General Shepley was designated by the President as Governor of Louisiana, Lieut.-Col. French was promoted from acting provost marshal on my staff to the post of provost marshal general of the State of Louisiana, and remained in that office when I left New Orleans. To his energy and ability the quiet and good order of the populace of New Orleans may be largely ascribed. Col. S. H.
