I heard of the arrival last night at the camp of Major James Graham, as bearer of despatches to General Taylor, and an od received the intelligence of the affair of Monterey. Major Graham I must go out to the camp immediately to see. I understmed of its barrenness, the Government having despatched Major Graham to have the armistice immediately annuled. It does notone is the ruin of another. I forgot to mention that Major Graham was sent by General Taylor to communicate the terminatiNovember 13, 1846. I take advantage of the return of Major Graham to give you intelligence of my movements and of our aff to the General, which radically modified those sent by Major Graham, that, it not being deemed prudent for him to cross thend we were in a state of great excitement for two days. Major Graham's despatches ordered an immediate advance into the enem written just on the eve of my departure for Saltillo. Major Graham promised to take it with him, so I presume it will reac
19. Saddest of all was the vast number of wounded who expired in the narrow space between the hostile lines, on the days following the battle, simply from the inability of their own friends to succor them. In this battle of Cold Harbor the most formidable loss fell on the 25th Mass. Infantry, which reported 300 for duty that morning and lost 69 killed or mortally wounded, including 6 officers, Capt. Thos. O'Neil, Lieuts. Wm. Daley, Henry McConville, Henry Matthews, Chas. H. Pelton and James Graham; the wounded and missing making up the total list of regimental casualties to 215,—more than two-thirds of the whole number. Fox's Regimental Losses, p. 167. Compare Casualties of War in Army and Navy Journal, XXV, 818. Putnam, in Co. A, 25th Mass. (p. 289), describes the fine charge of the 25th at Cold Harbor.

ecent number abusing Lord Melbourne, but could not succeed, and did not seem to be aware that he ought then to have refused the article. April 26.—We had a visit early from Lord Fullerton, who offered again to go with us about the town; but I know it so well from my former long visit, that I did not think it quite right to bore him to such an extent; and so, taking a few directions from him, we sallied forth again . . . . We dined at Lord Fullerton's, where we met Thomson and his wife, Graham, Sir William and Lady Hamilton, Wilson, and two or three others. Lord Fullerton's wife is a beautiful woman, and so is his eldest daughter; and the dinner was pleasant. The person I was most curious about was Wilson, the successor of Dugald Stewart, and the editor of Blackwood. He answered much to the idea given of him among the roisterers of the Noctes Ambrosianae. He is a stout, coarse, red-faced person, with a great deal of red, bushy hair flying about his face and shoulders, taking s
