proposed. He was firm. They offered him assistance in extinguishing the flames in Sumter. He declined it, regarding the offer as an adroit method of asking him to surrender, which he had resolved never to do. Finally, between seven and eight o'clock in the evening, Major D. R. Jones, accompanied by Colonels Miles and Pryor, and Captain Hartstene, Captain Hartstene had been an excellent officer in the National Navy, and had some fame as an explorer of the Arctic seas, in search of Sir John Franklin. He had resigned his commission, abandoned his flag, and entered the service of its enemies. He was now a volunteer aid to Beauregard. His kindness to the garrison was conspicuous. arrived at the fort with a communication from Beauregard, which contained an agreement for the evacuation of the fort according to Anderson's terms,, namely, the departure of the garrison, with company arms and property, and all private property, and the privilege of saluting and retaining his flag.

18th of July, swept down upon Wytheville, on the Virginia and Tennessee railway. They charged into the village, when they were fired upon from some of the houses. The leader was killed, and Lieutenant-Colonel Powell, of the Thirty-fourth Ohio, was mortally wounded. This unexpected resistance startled the raiders, and, after firing the houses from which shots came, they hastily retired, leaving their dead and wounded behind them. After brief rest they started for the Kanawha, under Lieutenant Franklin. They suffered severely from fatigue and lack of food among the almost uninhabited mountain ranges, and at the end of a rough ride of about four hundred miles, going and returning, during eight days, they lost eighty-two men and three hundred horses. A little later, General W. W. Averill started with his cavalry from Huttonsville, in Tygart's Valley, See map on page 101, volume II. and passing through several counties in the mountain region southward, to Pocahontas, drove Gener

n Mobile. For the purpose of making such lodgment, four thousand disciplined troops were placed under the command of General Franklin as leader, who was instructed to land them a few miles below Sabine Pass, and then move directly upon Confederate wopedition sailed on the 5th of September. Instead of following his instructions, to land lis troops below Sabine Pass, Franklin arranged with Crocker to have the gun-boats make a direct attack upon the Confederate works, without landing the troops els were in tow of Confederate steamers-small bay craft that had been converted into rams. The Arizona ran aground, and Franklin, seeing the naval force suddenly disabled, made no serious attempt to land, but, with the transports and the grounded ve one of the Guards. The writer is indebted for its use to the courtesy of his friend, Henry T. Drowne, of New York. Had Franklin landed a major's command for action, the squad in the fort might have been easily driven away by them, and Houston, only

ement of his portion of the expedition to General Franklin, who was to move on the 7th of March, andthe rapids, General Banks's column, under General Franklin, advanced March 28, 1864. to Natchitocheo, on the morning of the 6th of April, 1864. Franklin moved forward, with General Lee's cavalry in Lee waited for the head of it to come up. Franklin ordered Lee to attack the enemy whenever he crates was greater, including many prisoners. Franklin, at Lee's request, had sent forward a brigaded, on perceiving that the firing had ceased. Franklin advanced to Pleasant Hill and encamped, and t, who had been ordered to push forward, asked Franklin to allow his heavy wagon-train to remain behiving the situation, Banks sent back orders to Franklin to hurry forward the infantry, at the same tit every attempt. At about five o'clock General Franklin came up with the Third Division of the Thcondition and circumstances of his command by Franklin and the general officers of the Nineteenth Co[5 more...]

restle-work over Gunpowder Inlet; and near Magnolia he stopped the morning trains going north, plundered the passengers and mails, and burned the cars. Major-General Franklin was one of the passengers, and was in citizen's dress. There were feminine secessionists of Baltimore on the train, who found opportunity to inform Gilmohim, and made him his prisoner. He was sent in a light wagon toward Towsontown, with a guard. These, while resting in a wheat-field near the road, fell asleep, Franklin having disarmed their vigilance by pretending to be asleep himself. He arose, walked leisurely by the sleeping sentinels to the road when he ran to a woods, ande found Union people. They sent word to Baltimore. when a squadron of cavalry went out and escorted him back to that city. Gilmor said that when he found that Franklin had escaped, he swore with unusual energy. Early, meanwhile, taking counsel of prudence, after his bitter experience at the Monocacy, moved cautiously toward

, 3,800 wounded, and 702 prisoners, making a total of 6,252. Hood lost the following general officers: Cleburne, Williams, Adams, Gist, Strahl, and Granberry, killed; Brown, Carter, Manigault, Quarles, Cocker ell, and Scott wounded, and Gordon captured. Cleburne was called the Stonewall Jackson of the West, and his loss was severely felt. Thomas thought. it not prudent for him to risk another battle in the morning, and ordered him to retreat to Nashville. A little after midnight he left Franklin, and, notwithstanding they were sharply followed by Forrest after daybreak, the troops, with all their trains were safely within the lines at Nashville by noon on the day after the battle. The result of the contest, known as the battle of Franklin, was quite as disastrous to Hood in the breaking of the spirit of his followers as in the loss of men. They were discouraged, and began to reflect again upon Hood's reckless waste of life at Atlanta, and the probabilities of defeat in all the fut

fered to take, the author, in a government tug, to Fort Fisher, and on Monday morning, March 27, 1866. in company with that officer and a small party, we made an interesting voyage down the Cape Fear. At almost every mile of the way, we saw the remains of war, in the form of obstructions to navigation, Among other obstructions were sunken hulks. One of these was the famous Arctic, one of the vessels of the Grinnell Expedition to the Polar Seas, conducted by Dr. Kane, in search of Sir John Franklin, in 1850. and forts and batteries on the shore. We landed at Fort Anderson, fifteen miles below Wilmington, and visited the ruins of Brunswick Church, within its embankments, which was built before the old War for Independence. It was well toward noon when we landed on Federal Point (called Confederate Point, during the war), near Battery Buchanan, and traveled across the moor-like peninsula to Mound Battery and Fort Fisher. There we spent a few hours, examining the fortifications
