directed Sweeny's division, of the Sixteenth Corps, to cross and threaten Calhoun, farther south. At the same time the cavalry division of General Garrard moved from Villanow in the direction of Rome, with orders to destroy the railway between Calhoun and Kingston. Sherman, meanwhile, was severely pressing Johnston at Resaca, at all points, and a general engagement ensued in the afternoon and evening of the 15th. May. McPherson had secured a lodgment across Camp Creek, near the town, and hent out, at dawn, Sept. 2, 1864. a strong reconnoitering column in that direction. It encountered no opposition, and entered the city — much of which was reduced to a smoking ruin by Hood's incendiary fires — at 9 o'clock, when it was met by Mayor Calhoun, who formally surrendered the place. General Ward's division then marched in, with drums beating and colors Herman's Headquarters in Atlanta. flying, and the National flag was unfurled over the Court-house. On the day of the evacuation

These, and the tomb of Calhoun, within a few yards of the spot where the South Carolina Ordinance of Secession was signed; The grave of Calhoun is in St. Philip's church-yard (see page 104, Calhoun is in St. Philip's church-yard (see page 104, volume I.), just back of the ruins of the South Carolina Institute (see page 19, volume I.), and the Circular church. When the writer was in Charleston, at the time we are considering, he was informed by a general officer that once on returning to the Mills House, after a social party, at about midnight, he heard a screech-owl in the ruined tower of the Circular church, making its unpleasant noise, within the distance of the sound of a man's voice from the remains of the grave of Calhoun, the great apostle of Disunion. In the heart of the city which he and his disciples fondly hoped would be the commercial emporium of a great empire founded on human slaver

e was the equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson, in Jackson Square, the principal place of public resort on fine days and evenings, where the citizens may enjoy the fresh air and perfumes of flowers. On the pedestal of that statue, in letters of almost imperishable granite, might have been read, while the friends of the Conspirators had possession of the city, and were trying to destroy the Republic, the memorable words of Jackson's toast at a gathering in Washington City, at the instance of Calhoun, to inaugurate a secession movement:--the Union--it must, and shall be preserved. The other was a statue of Henry Clay, in the middle of Canal Street, on which, during all the period of the preparation of the slaveholders for actual rebellion, and whilst it was rampant in New Orleans, might have been read these words of that great statesman:--if I could be instrumental in Eradicating this Deep stain, slavery, from the character of My country, I would not exchange the Proud satisfaction I s

charge and disposition of the Union prisoners were committed to John H. Winder, formerly of the National army, whose acquaintance we have already made. See page 26, volume II. He appears to have been, according to the testimony of friend and foe, an exceedingly bad man; cruel in his nature; repulsive in features; rude in manners; and foul and profane in speech. While a cadet at West Point, he engaged in a conspiracy, and was saved from punishment by an adroit construction of law by John C. Calhoun, then Secretary of War. He was an inciter of the mob at Baltimore, who attempted to prevent Massachusetts troops passing through that city to Washington, in April, 1861. Then he went to Richmond, and was appointed a brigadier-general in the insurgent army, but never had command in the field. The Arch-Conspirator, Davis, who knew his character well, made him Chief Commissary of Prisoners, and kept him in that office until his death in Georgia, Jones, in his Rebel War Clerk's Diary,
