pressed the work, well knowing that the new Congress, who would take their seats after the 4th of March, 1869, would be so largely of one party that there might be delay in adjusting these questions. The opposition, recognizing this fact, in most cases acquiesced. At no time in the history of the Government have there been abler men in Congress than there were then. Among the senators were Sumner, Wade, Chandler, Morton, Fessenden, Conkling, Morgan, Sherman, Morrill, Voorhees, Trumbull, Anthony, and Wilson. In the House were Garfield, Colfax, Butler, Brooks, Bingham, Blaine, Shellabarger, Wilson, Allison, Cullom, Logan, Ames, Hooper, Washburne, Boutwell, Randall, and Voorhees. Such men were earnest, thoughtful, patriotic and keenly alive to the interests of the country. They allowed nothing to pass that was in any sense questionable. February 10, 1869, was a memorable day. It was gloomy and disagreeable, but that had no influence on the multitude that gathered at the Capit

It was quite late in the summer before General Logan reached home, as the extra session of the Senate which convened after the inauguration, March 4, 1873, had been protracted much longer than had been expected.

m the South. He had had a distinguished career during the war as a brave soldier. His manners were polished, and his ability as a debater and his sterling integrity made him very popular. He was subsequently named as associate justice upon the Supreme Bench. No one who ever saw Senator Vest of Missouri could forget him. He was a brave, conscientious representative of the State of Missouri, and was ever ready to enter into a discussion of any political question that arose in the Senate. Anthony and Burnside of Rhode Island, while of entirely different temperaments, were both able debaters and genial, companionable gentlemen. Senator Dawes of Massachusetts was probably the most perfect type of New England man in the Senate. He was conscientious and an earnest Republican in principle. He was not a brilliant man in any sense of the word, but a very hard worker on committees and for the best interests of Massachusetts. Plumb of Kansas, an able man without one particle of polish or

The inauguration was, as so often has been the case, seriously marred by inclement weather. General Sherman was chief marshal of the procession and the whole parade moved with clockwork precision. Garfield was escorted by Senators Bayard and Anthony with the Columbia Commandery Knights Templar, of which he was a member, as a guard of honor. Vice-President-elect Arthur was escorted by Senator Pendleton. At the Senate chamber Mrs. Hayes and General Garfield's wife and mother were conducted success, as the dinners given by President Arthur were at all times the most elegant of any ever given in the White House. When the Forty-eighth Congress convened, December 3, 1883, Judge David Davis retired as President pro tern., and Senator Anthony, five times elected senator, was offered the chair. This he declined, and Senator Edmunds of Vermont, was finally elected. General Logan was placed on a committee to investigate the conditions existing on the Mississippi River and the Illi
hours of darkness. We only knew that we were surrounded by lawless banditti, from whom we had no reason to expect mercy, much less kindness; but above all, there was an eye that never slumbered, and an arm mighty to defend those who trusted to it, so we made the house as secure as we could, and kept ready a parcel of sharp case-knives (don't laugh at our weapons) for our defence, if needed, and went up-stairs, determined to keep close vigils all night. Our two faithful servants, Jacob and Anthony, kept watch in the kitchen. Among the many faithless, those two stood as examples of the comfort that good servants can give in time of distress. About nine o'clock we heard the sound of horses' feet, and Jacob's voice under the window. Upon demanding to know what was the matter, I was answered by the voice of a gun-boat captain, in broken German, that they were going to fire over my house at the Rebs on the hill, and that we had better leave the house, and seek protection in the street
November 11. At Columbus, Ky., a Dahlgren gun exploded, killing two lieutenants and six privates. General Polk narrowly escaped. A portion of his clothes were torn off.--N. Y. Evening Post, November 14. One hundred and ten men of the Kansas Jayhawkers, under Col. Anthony, attacked a rebel camp on the Little Blue, near Kansas City, defeated the rebels, and captured a large number of horses. The Federal loss was eight killed and eight wounded. The rebel loss is not known.--(Doc. 151.) The Richmond Enquirer gives the subjoined list of property subject to the war tax in the South: Real estate, including all lands and estates therein, with ferries, bridges, and mines; slaves of all ages; merchandise, of all kinds, for sale, except agricultural products of the country; bank stock, except such as may be returned by the bank, by its proper officer; railroad and other corporate stock; money at interest, including bills and all notes and securities bearing interest, ex
will be subjected to careful inspection. The oath will be administered to all the employees and passengers, and the plans of landing and departure will conform as near as possible to the custom of trade, but all commission and storage business must be transacted with openly avowed Union men. The purpose of this measure is to check communication with the enemy and prevent the conveyance of contraband goods.--(Doc. 198.) To-day six scouts of Capt. Gregory's company, sent out from Lieut.-Col. Anthony's command, on the Old Lexington roads, Mo., were fired upon by about fifty rebels at the crossing of the Little Blue, from the rocks and bushes. One of the scouts was wounded; two missing. The three returning met some fifteen rebels on Little Blue bridge, with shot guns. The scouts then turned, took another road, and arrived safely in camp. Lieut. Hedgeman sent out twenty men, and found the rebels near the same place, drove them into the brush, and captured twenty horses and mules.
ifles, if the rascals succeed in gaining a foothold on the island. I will await the developments of the morrow, before continuing my letter. Monday, June 23. This morning we sent down a skirmishing train to investigate things. Two dirt-cars were rendered defensible by parapets of logs, and filled with about fifty sharp-shooters. I tried ha rd to get off, but had to confess I was not much of a shot, and was rejected with about fifty other aspirants to glory. Never mind, boys, said Major Anthony, we will soon have work for you all. The Major, who belongs to a cavalry regiment, is a good fellow, and we have great confidence in him. We sent our train off with a God speed, with instructions to go as far as they could, and investigate statu quo. They got through to Terre Bonne without mishap, and were there hospitably welcomed by the two guns which once belonged to that miserable stockade. The twenty-four pounders whistled about the locomotive, and as our boys were not prepared
ped, said my informant, I never saw line of battle formed so quick from off the tops of cars. It was a mystery to me how the men got off so quick. They fought for some time without the fort or earth-work, and then retreated inside, where Colonel Anthony's regiment, the Sixty-sixth Indiana, which garrisoned the post, already were. Here the rebels sent in a written demand to surrender, signed, it was said, by General Pemberton's Adjutant. One of General Sherman's staff asked what reply thveral days past, was very severely injured — shot through the breast, while doing his utmost, with a musket. But to return to the culverts. We found three of them burned--two small and one large one--and returned and reported the facts. Colonel Anthony furnished a detail to mend the former, and with my two companies we repaired the latter, and by seven o'clock in the morning had the road again in running order to Colliersville. General Sherman told us that we had done so well, that he now
ll both drink to the Hero, and drink to the Man, And the General too, who 'mong bold ones will stand, Who dared put into practice what head-work had planned. Listen, comrades, we Yankees are most reading men, And something of history and generals ken. Which commanders are those that a soldier will mention, Who's studied his books with delight and attention? Why, Gustavus, and Fred'rick, Charles, Blucher, and Saxe, And the like, who trod ably in Hannibal's tracks, 'Mong our own, Greene, “Mad Anthony,” Schuyler, and Lamb, And Montgomery, dead near the field of Montcalm-- That field where Wolfe died, all content as victorious-- Leaving names that are watchwords-whole nation's themes glorious. Well! who most in this war showed a spirit like theirs? Grant and Farragut truly have done their full shares; But the two, who at outset, the foremost will show Were Phil Kearny in coffin; alive, “Fighting Joe.” Do you know why true soldiers will talk “Fighting Joe,” Because he's a game-cock
