e dense woods being lit up by innumerable camp-fires. 21st may, 1863 (Thursday). I rejoined General Johnston at 9 A. M., and was received into his mess. Major Eustis and Lieutenant Washington, officers of his Staff, are thorough gentlemen, and did all in their power to make me comfortable. The first is a Louisianian of werginian army until he was severely wounded at the battle of Seven Pines. Called Fair oaks by the Yankees. 23d may, 1863 (Saturday). General Johnston, Major Eustis, and myself, left Canton at 6 A. M. on a locomotive for Jackson. On the way we talked a good deal about Stonewall Jackson. General Johnston said that alth. A carriage ought to have been in waiting for us, but by some mistake it had not arrived, so we had to foot it. I was obliged to carry my heavy saddlebags. Major Eustis very kindly took my knapsack, and the General carried the cloaks. In this order we reached Jackson, much exhausted, at 9.30 A. M. General Loring came and

To Major W. W. S. Bliss, A. A. G. When Colonel Davis was helped off his horse, in an almost fainting condition, his leg had swollen so that it filled his boot; pieces of his brass spur and of his stocking had been driven through his foot into the wound and became embedded there. Captain Eustis, a friend and comrade, sat by him all night and kept a stream of cold water pouring over the wound, which, his surgeon thought, prevented lockjaw from supervening. General Taylor, when he was informed that Colonel Davis was killed, was so excited that he exclaimed, I will never believe it, and sent one after another to inquire without waiting for an answer. The soft-hearted old hero found time to go himself after night to inquire after Colonel Davis, and began the interview saying:

caped the notice of the blockading fleet. Mason was accompanied by his secretary (Mr. McFarland), and Slidell by his wife and four children, and his secretary (Mr. Eustis) and his wife, who was a daughter of Corcoran, the eminent banker of Washington City. The Theodore touched first at Nassau, New Providence, a British port, wheo have the mark forever. Exclamations of Oh! and laughter followed this assertion. The marines were called in, and Slidell was compelled to go. McFarland and Eustis went quietly, under protest. A proper force was sent, and Mason and Slidell, compelled to yield to circumstances, went. quietly on board the San Jacinto with their secretaries. The Trent, with the families of Slidell and Eustis on board, and its large number of passengers, was permitted to proceed on its voyage, after a detention of only little more than two hours. The captives were conveyed first to New York and then to Boston Harbor, where they were furnished Fort Warren. with quarte

M., of the 8th, he sighted the Trent; and, after a civil request to heave to had been declined by her, a shell was fired across her bow, which brought her to reason. Lieut. Fairfax, with a boat's crew, immediately boarded her in quest of the Embassadors; when Messrs. Mason and Slidell, with their Secretaries, Eustis and McFarland, were compelled to change their vessel and their destination. Their families were left undisturbed, and no effort made to obtain their papers. But the Embassadors and their Secretaries were brought to the United States, and confined, by order of the Government, in Fort Warren, near Boston. Secretary Welles, in his Annual Report of naval proceedings for the year ending Dec. 2d, 1861, thus fully and frankly adopted and justified the capture: The prompt and decisive actio

Lieutenants Eustis and Allston, my Aids-de-camp, discharged their varied duties with zeal and gallantry.

My thanks are especially due to my Aids-decamp, Lieutenants Allston, Eustis; Lieutenant-Colonel Cary, Inspector-General; Major Bloom-field, Chief Quartermaster; Major Brent, Chief of Ordnance; Major Hyllested, of the Zouave battalion, Actid not receive your kind note inviting me to accompany you west until after you had left, though I had heard through Major Brent that you invited me.

of the upper and lower batteries, and Colonel Fuller, Chief of Heavy Artillery, Lieutenant-Colonel Pinckney, Eighth Louisiana battalion, in command of two of the lower batteries for a portion of the time, was temporarily relieved, under a special organization, which reduced the battalion to a Major's command. The officers commanding these companies were as follows: Captains Capers, Grayson, Butler, Tissot, Purvis, Herrod, Todd, Disumkes, Parks, Morman, Postlethwait, Durives, Kerr, and Lieutenants Eustis, Butler, and McCrory. The names of the above-mentioned officers are given for the reason that, in connection with their Lieutenants and men, they have passed through an ordeal that troops are but seldom called upon to undergo! For more than seventy-five days and nights have these batteries been continuously manned and ready for action at a moment's warning. During much of this time the roar of cannon has been unceasing, and there have been portions of it during which the noise of fa
