and embark the rest next day. Great was the jubilee! The men were up, I verily believe, by three in the morning, and by eight the whole camp was demolished or put in wagons, and we were on our way. The soldiers of the Fourth New Hampshire swarmed in; every board was swept away by them; there had been a time when colored boards (if I may delicately so express myself) were repudiated by white soldiers, but that epoch had long since passed. I gave my new tent-frame, even the latch, to Colonel Bell; ditto Lieutenant-Colonel to Lieutenant-Colonel. Down we marched, the men singing John Brown and Marching along and Gwine in de wilderness; women in tears and smiles lined the way. We halted opposite the dear General's; we cheered, he speeched, I speeched, we all embraced symbolically, and cheered some more. Then we went to work at the wharf; vast wagon-loads of tents,,rations, ordnance, and what — not disappeared in the capacious maw of the Delaware. In the midst of it all came ri

s, and in a country which had been desolated by almost unprecedented outrages. I assert that our officers, with all the circumstances against them, endeavored to prevent the effusion of blood, and as an evidence of this I refer you to the fact that both white and colored prisoners were taken, and are now in our hands. The following are extracts from Forrest's report, dated April 26th, 1864 [see also p. 107]: . . . My command consisted of McCulloch's brigade of Chalmers's division and Bell's brigade of Buford's division, both placed for the expedition under the command of Brigadier-General James R. Chalmers, who, by a forced march, drove in the enemly's pickets, gained possession of the outer works, and by the time I reached the field, at 10 A. A., had forced the enemy to their main fortifications, situated on the bluff or bank of the Mississippi River at the mouth of Coal Creek. . . . Assuming command, I ordered General Chalmers to advance his line and gain position on the slo

f our shot in action, or at exercise at general quarters, called to me and said, Mr. Kell, the enemy have fired a gun to leeward; cease firing. We were then about seventy-five yards from the enemy, and could hear distinctly their hail, saying they were fast sinking and on fire in three places, and for God's sake to save them. We immediately sent boats, and in the darkness took every living soul from her. These events occurred in the presence of the enemy's fleet, bearing the pennant of Commodore Bell within signal-distance. The Hatteras, when destroyed, was 16 to 20 miles from the fleet. She had been a river excursion boat, and was no match for her adversary. Her heaviest rifle was a 30-pounder, and her heaviest smooth-bore was a 32-pounder.--editors. The Hatteras went down in a few minutes. She carried a larger crew than our own. Knowing that the Federal squadron would soon be upon us, every light on board ship was put under cover and we shaped our course for broader waters.

t had for a time demoralized the men, but that the enemy was equally demoralized by our unexpected resistance; and I assured him that if Bragg would even then attack, a fresh brigade landed at Battery Buchanan could retake the work. Some officer suggested that the general should take me with him, as I was probably fatally wounded, but I refused to leave, wishing to share the fate of my garrison; and desiring that my family, anxiously awaiting tidings across the river, where they had Colonel Louis Bell. From a photograph. watched the battle, should not be alarmed, I spoke lightly of my wound. I asked him to carry General Whiting to a place of safety, as he had come to the fort a volunteer. Just then the approach of the enemy was reported, and Colquitt made a precipitate retreat, leaving Whiting behind. General Whiting died a prisoner at Fort Columbus, New York Harbor, March 10th, 1865. One more distressing scene remains to be chronicled. The next morning after sunrise a f
