inguishing the conflagration which our exploding shells had enkindled. Our men finally arrived safely on their respective ships, having captured a sloop with eighty bales of cotton and two prisoners. It was supposed that the rebel ram Chattahoochee, which is reported to be ready to come down to demolish the ships on the blockade here, would have appeared the same day. She would have had the advantage if she had attacked our boats when in the river. The Chattahoochee is commanded by Ap. Catesby Jones, who was second in command of the Merrimac at the time of the fight with the Monitor last spring. The crew of this rebel ram also belonged in part to the Merrimac. The gunboats are expecting this rebel steamer as soon as there are seven feet of water at the mouth of the river. She is said to have a heavy armament and to be partially iron-clad; but the gunboats Saga--more and Fort Henry are prepared to meet her. The rebel steamer will have to do some hard fighting when she comes down

he Monitor, and Lieutenant Greene, her executive, admits that she withdrew twice from the engagement—once to hoist shot into the turret, and again when Worden was wounded—page 725-727, Battles and Leaders of the Civil War, volume I. Lieutenant Ap. Catesby Jones, of the Merrimac, concludes his statement of the engagement of March 9th in these words: We for some time awaited the return of the Monitor to the Roads. The loss of our prow and anchor, consumption of coal, water, etc., had lighteing overboard all heavy stones, ballast, and pig-iron which had been put aboard to bring her down in the water to fighting trim. Commodore Tatnall being unwell had retired to rest. Between 1 and 2 A. M. of the 11th, he was aroused by Lieutenant Ap. Catesby Jones, with the report that after the crew had been at work some five hours, and had lightened the ship so as to expose her hull and render her unfit for action, the pilots now said the ship could not be carried with eighteen feet above Jame

Richmond Times June 12, 1892.] On Tuesday, October 13, 1891, General John Echols delivered before the Confederate Association of Kentucky, at Louisville, an Address on Stonewall Jackson, which the Louisville Courier-Journal, in an article in its issue of October 17th, 1891, characterizes as an impressive tribute to Christianity, and as a thrilling recital of General Jackson's matchless movements, and testimony to his military ability. Bishops Dudley and Penick, Rev. Doctors Broaddus and Jones, the Rev. J. G. Minnigerode and other ministers in the great audience, it is stated, were visibly affected. Some allusions of the orator, it would appear from the following article, which the editor has pleasure in reproducing, have been taken alone and apart from the address, and construed, it may be apprehended, as it was not intended or expected they would be. The Times in an introductory note cites the objectionable paragraph as follows: General Ewell did not have a high opinion of
aginable one is, that they wished to avoid going into battle. Had the ship not been lifted, so as to render her unfit for action, a desperate contest must have ensued with a force against us too great to justify much hope of success, and, as battle is not their occupation, They adopted this deceitful course to avoid it. I cannot imagine another motive; for I had seen no reason to distrust their good faith to the Confederacy. My acknowledgments are due to the first Lieutenant, Ap. Catesby Jones, for his untiring exertions, and for the aid he rendered me in all things. The details for firing the ship and landing the crew were left to him; and everything was conducted with the most perfect order. To the other officers of the ship, generally, I am also thankful for the great zeal they displayed throughout. The Virginia no longer exists, but 340 brave and skillful officers and seamen are saved to the Confederacy. I presume that a Court of Inquiry will be ordered t
