ver to the Navy Yard, and before daylight boarded a large schooner (the Judah), which was being fitted out as a privateer, and lying at the wharf there. They spiked a ten-inch columbiad, with which she was armed, and burnt her to the water's edge. By the use of muffled oars they eluded the vigilance of the sentinels until it was too late for useful resistance. Lieutenant Russell lost three men killed and twelve wounded. The planning and fitting out of the expedition was entrusted to Captain Bailey, of the Colorado. Lieutenant Russell was promoted to Commander on the 4th of October. This was a most daring feat, for at the Navy Yard near by there were at least a thousand Confederate soldiers. They were led by an officer with the courage of forty Numidian lions, and their success was perfect, said an account of the affair written by an officer at the Navy Yard. The Confederates soon became the aggressors. Early in October, they made an attempt to surprise and capture Wilson's tr

Vienna, Oct. 16. and Fairfax Court House, Oct. 17. the Confederates falling back to Centreville without firing a shot. They had evacuated Munson's Hill on the 28th of September, when the position was formally taken possession of by the Nationals, who had been for some time looking upon it from Bailey's Crossroads with much respect, because of its apparently formidable works and heavy armament. These had been reconnoitered with great caution, and pronounced to be alarmingly strong, when the fort was really a slight earthwork, running irregularly around about four acres on the brow of the hill, without ditch or glacis, in every respect a squirming piece of work, as an eye-witness wrote. Its armament consisted of one stove-pipe and two logs, the latter with a black disc painted on the mid

gain a footing on the adjacent shore, and waiting in painful anxiety, at the last, for the arrival of General. Butler and the remainder of his command, who, at one time it was feared, had gone to the bottom of the sea. Their advent produced joy, for the troops well knew that the stagnation of the camp would soon give place to the bustle of preparations for the field. That expectation was heightened when, a few hours after he landed, Butler was seen in conference with Captains Farragut and Bailey, of the navy, who were there, in which his Chief of Staff, Major George C. Strong, and his Chief Engineer, Lieutenant Godfrey Weitzel (both graduates of West Point) participated. The latter had been engaged in the completion of the forts below New Orleans, and was well acquainted with all the region around the lower Mississippi. At that conference, a plan of operation against the forts below New Orleans and the city itself was adopted, and was substantially carried out a few weeks later.

t, and yet the use of them as synonyms in describing the battle would give an erroneous impression. In front of the place known as The Seven Pines, and at Fair Oaks Station-positions but a short distance apart — the heaviest engagements of the great battle were fought on the same day, and partly by the same troops. were very heavy, and about equal on both sides, amounting in the aggregate to about seven thousand each. Among the National officers killed or disabled in this battle were Colonel Bailey and Major Van Valkenburg, of the artillery, and Colonels Riker, Brown, Ripley, and Miller, of the infantry. Among the wounded were Generals Naglee, Devens, Howard, and Wessels, and Colonel Cross, of the Fifth New Hampshire. This was heavy, when it is considered that not more than fifteen thousand men on either side were engaged in the conflict. Casey's division, that so gallantly withstood the first shock of battle, lost one-third of its number. This division, though composed in a l
