ch resulted in the greatest heroism. And it is history to say that the defense of Sumter and Wagner are feats of war unsurpassed in ancient or modern times. I now propose, before closing, to review a few passages of General Gillmore's book, published just after the war, and, as appears on its title-page, by authority. Most of its errors have already been refuted in my Morris Island report, which is given, in extenso, in the second volume of the Military operations of General Beauregard (Harper & Brothers: pp. 102 et seq.) It only remains, therefore, to comment briefly upon certain misapprehensions and false conclusions of the author. See paper by General Gillmore, written in 1887, to follow.--editors. General Gillmore was considered during the war the first engineer officer in the Federal service. Such is his standing up to this day. He had evidently been sent in command of the Department of the South, to effect what General Hunter had failed to do, to wit, the capture of

the Valley in a way least injurious to the people. These instructions, which were intended for Hunter, were destined to be carried out by another, and how well this was accomplished it is my purpose to recount. Hunter's failure to capture Lynchburg in the spring of 1864 [see p. 492] and his retreat by a circuitous line opened the Valley to General Early, who had gone to the relief of Lynchburg. Marching down the Valley and taking possession of it without serious opposition, Early turned Harper's Ferry, which was held by a Union force under Sigel, and crossed into Maryland at Shepherdstown. The governors of New York, Pennsylvania, and Massachusetts were called on for hundred-days men to repel the invasion, and later the Army of the Potomac supplied its quota of veterans as a nucleus around which the new levies could rally. General Early marched on Washington, and on the 11th of July was in front of the gates of the capital. The following day, after a severe engagement in which t

Robbing a soldier. --An invalid soldier, named Richard A. Cox, stopped at the Columbian Hotel, on Friday evening last, and had scarcely deposited his knapsack of clothing in his apartment before it was spirited away in a mysterious manner. Mr. C. B. Luck soon discovered one of the thieves, and Mr. Brannan the other, and they were at once taken into custody. They are quite youthful, and give their names as John Harper and John Williams. One of them had carried a knapsack out of the house, and was making off with it when discovered, and the other remained behind for the purpose of securing a trunk, which he had moved from one room into another. The Mayor on Saturday remanded the prisoners, to be examined for grand larceny.
