Prayer-books and Scalping-Knives.--The following letter, picked up by an officer of Gen. Cox's staff, on the ground from which Governor Wise's troops fled, shows the affecting tone of true piety that runs through all the Confederate operations:-- Way up on the hill, below Charleston four miles. Mat.:--I want you to put every thing in the sergeant's room — every thing that belongs to us. And if there is any engagement, break my little trunk open, and take out my Bible and prayer-book, and those Boone County bonds, and save them for me. I have not read my Bible for sixteen years, but I want them saved. Cook all the provender up there, and put all our cooking utensils together in the sergeant's room. The news is that the enemy is coming up on both sides of the river in a d----d strong force. I am the second company to have a shot. The orders are to scalp all we get near to. J. W. M. Sherry, Captain of Boone Rangers. --Phila. Bulletin, Aug. 2.
and, third, that my client hadn't the scurvy at all but a disease which bore no relation to it. The whole East India trade and a large portion of the Boston merchants came as witnesses for the defence. I said to Mr. Choate that that defence would cost his client, I was certain, a good deal more than we. had claimed for damages, and that perhaps his client would like to make some settlement, for I confess that I was a little alarmed and scurvy hadn't been much in my line. I knew that Captain Cook had buried the members of his crew who had the scurvy in the earth at the Sandwich Islands to cure them, and that is all I knew, and I saw very extended and onerous study would be necessary in many parts of the case. Mr. Choate told me it was no use to speak of compromise. The East India trade was determined to make an example of this case so that its trade should never be interfered with again. Very well, then, I said, , let her go; we will have an example for somebody. The trial o

Reilly the teller. Already the bank of Lucas, Turner & Co. was established, and was engaged in selling bills of exchange, receiving deposits; and loaning money at three per cent. a month. Page, Bacon & Co., and Adams & Co., were in full blast across the street, in Parrott's new granite building, and other bankers were doing seemingly a prosperous business, among them Wells, Fargo & Co.; Drexel, Sather & Church; Burgoyne & Co.; James King of Wm.; Sanders & Brenham; Davidson & Co.; Palmer, Cook & Co., and others. Turner and I had rooms at Mrs. Ross's, and took our meals at restaurants down-town, mostly at a Frenchman's named Martin, on the southwest corner of Montgomery and California Streets. General Hitchcock, of the army, commanding the Department of California, usually messed with us; also a Captain Mason, and Lieutenant Whiting, of the Engineer Corps. We soon secured a small share of business, and became satisfied there was room for profit. Everybody seemed to be making mone

gladly accepted gold-bars, whereby we paid out the seventy-five thousand dollars of bullion, relieving the coin to that amount. Meantime, rumors from the street came pouring in that Wright & Co. had failed; then Wells, Fargo & Co.; then Palmer, Cook & Co., and indeed all, or nearly all, the banks of the city; and I was told that parties on the street were betting high, first, that we would close our doors at eleven o'clock; then twelve, and so on; but we did not, till the usual hour that nigher obligations. He then agreed to meet me at our bank at 10 P. M. I sent word to others that I demanded them to pay what they could on their paper, and then returned to the bank, to meet Hammond. In due time, he came down with Palmer (of Palmer, Cook & Co.), and there he met Smiley, who was, of course, very anxious to retire his notes. We there discussed the matter fully, when Hammond said, Sherman, give me up my two acceptances, and I will substitute therefor my check of forty thousand dolla
y be imagined, the events of the morning had tended to decrease in no measure his pugnacity. When he received his long-desired orders for an assault of the enemy's works, his eyes glistened with a fire which, could it have been seen by his maligners, would have left them in no doubt as to his private feelings in regard to the present contest. All the arrangements were complete by three o'clock, and his column was put in motion soon after. The force under his command was as follows: Col. Cook's Brigade.--Seventh Illinois, Fiftieth Illinois, Twelfth Iowa, Thirteenth Missouri, Fifty-second Indiana. Col. Lauman's Brigade.--Second Iowa, Seventh Iowa, Fourteenth Iowa, Twenty-fifth Indiana, Fifty-sixth Indiana. Under cover of Capt. Stone's Missouri battery this force began the assault. It was a formidable undertaking, which, under a less brave and skilful commander than Gen. Smith, might have proved a disastrous failure. The hills at this point are among the most precipitou

n the West, when Foote and his gunboats made their way up the Tennessee they actually steamed past, without touching, some mines that had drifted out of the channel. The gunboat Cairo was the first victim of this new style of warfare, in the Yazoo River, December 12, 1862. With the exception of the actions along the Potomac and in The beginnings of submarine warfare: a Confederate photograph of 1864--the first David, figuring in an heroic exploit This peaceful scene, photographed by Cook, the Confederate photographer at Charleston, in 1864, preserves one of the most momentous inventions of the Confederate navy. Back of the group of happy children lies one of the Davids or torpedo-boats with which the Confederates made repeated attempts to destroy the Federal vessels in Charleston Harbor, and thus raise the blockade. The Confederates were the first to employ torpedoes in the war, at Aquia Creek, July 7, 1861. Captain F. D. Lee, C. S. N., was working on designs for a torpedo

they were irresistible. They pushed on, under his gallant leadership, and completely routed the panic-stricken stricken soldiers of Fighting Joe Hooker. After Generals Jackson and A. P. Hill were wounded, General Rodes was in supreme command, but he modestly and patriotically yielded to General J. E. B. Stuart, who had been sent for by General Pendleton of the artillery. After this battle he was promoted full Major-General, and put in charge of Battle's, Ramseur's (now Cox's), Doles' (now Cook's), and Daniel's (now Lewis') brigades. General Rodes was a precise and somewhat stern military man, of resolute expression and soldierly bearing, and enjoyed the implicit confidence of his superior officers, as well as his troops. A fragment of shell struck him behind the ear, and in a few hours this brave, skillful and trusted officer yielded up his heroic life as a holocaust to his country's cause. He married the popular and accomplished Miss V. H. Woodruff, of Tuscaloosa, Alabama, and
