indulged in by the men. A greased pole some twenty feet high was erected, and at the top was suspended a pair of trousers the pockets of which contained $13. After four hours of ludicrously unsuccessful trials on the part of a number of men, Butler of Company K secured the full pay and the trousers. Wheelbarrow and sack races closed the games. December came in, cold and rainy, for the winter weather had set in. The day, however, was a happy and memorable one, for news was received of General Grant's great victory at Missionary Ridge, and every fort fired a salute, causing spiteful replies from the enemy. A high wind prevailed on the 6th, and those who were upon the bluff or beach witnessed a terrible disaster to the fleet. At 2 P. M. the monitor Weehawken, off the island, foundered, carrying to their death, imprisoned below, four officers and twentyseven men. There was much heavy weather about the first ten days of December. After it subsided, the beach of Morris Island was
omed to comparative inaction in the Department of the South, depleted of its troops? Musing thus, we ran past part of our sister regiment, the Fifty-fifth, at Yellow Bluff, continuing down the river to its junction with blue water. There the tide was found not to be serving; and our transport lay swinging and rolling lazily in unison with other craft, similarly detained, until the bar could be safely crossed and the open sea gained.

Brig.-Gen. Seth Williams, U. S. A. Our regiment was in excellent condition, and the colored brigade made a good appearance, numbering twenty-three hundred men. It seemed that the government, having paid us once in the two years service, was allowing that to suffice, for six months pay was due at this time. The officers were penniless, and had to send North for money or borrow it to subsist upon. Sherman's victorious progress, Sheridan's brilliant successes, Lee's inability to hold back Grant, and the whole seaboard fallen, made it manifest that the war was virtually over. The Fifty-fourth then expected but a brief period of garrison duty, followed by a homeward voyage, without again hearing a hostile shot; but a new field of service was before them, for after a review of the troops on the 25th by General Grover at The Plain, orders came for the Fifty-fourth and One Hundred and Second United States Colored Troops to proceed to Georgetown, S. C. The following changes took plac
