ision, was in camp at Columbus, Kentucky. This was General Polk's headquarters. His encampment was strongly fortified with batteries, which commanded the river. Immediately opposite and across the river is the small village of Belmont, Missouri. Here Colonel Tappan was posted. His command consisted of his own regiment, the Thirteenth Arkansas, Captain Beltzhoover's (Watson battery), of six guns, and two companies of Colonel Miller's battalion of cavalry, under Captain Bowles and Lieutenant Jones. It was between two and three o'clock on the morning of the 7th of November, 1861, that General Polk received information from his aid-de-camp, Major Winslow, that the enemy was moving a strong force, designed to attack General Jeff. Thompson's position at Bloomfield and New Madrid. Soon after daybreak he received further information, from the same source, that the enemy had made his appearance in the river, with gunboats and transports, and was landing a considerable force on the M

ho were conspicuous for their bravery and coolness under a galling fire, I will mention Signal Officers E. Jones and S. Rose, who never left their posts one minute. While shot and shell were tearing everything to pieces, Signal Officer E. Jones had his flag-staff shot from his hands; he coolly picked up the flag and continued to communicate his message. Captain (afterwards General) Ed. Rucker, commanding the battery, says: E. Jones and Samuel Rose, of the Signal Corps, were engaged with me the whole day in defence of the redan, and bore themselves with great coolness and gallantry. Signahe command. Clagett with one party going to Mobile, Davidson with another to Vicksburg, and Elcan Jones with another to Kirby Smith across the river. These were three good men meriting the promotion they afterwards got. All of them became captains in the Signal Corps, and Elcan Jones, the hero of Battery No. 1, was, at the end of the war, Chief Signal Officer to General Joseph E. Johnston.

ed and fought her in that memorable naval conflict of the 8th and 9th of March, 1862, may well claim, as they certainly deserve, the eminent distinction of having been the first to discover and employ armored ships of war in battle, certainly ships of this style. They startled naval constructors and officers in the civilized world by the rapidity, audacity and novelty of their original methods, and will be known through all ages for their wonderful achievements. Maury, Buchanan, Brooke, Jones, and their assistants, are the central figures, around whom revolve to the present day the changes from the old to the new in naval warfare. And Ericsson of the North is the originator of another type. Together, they form a group of which any country may well felicitate itself. It would require a volume to recite in detail the wonderfully ingenious inventions of Confederate officers in different waters and regions of the South to meet and overcome difficulties and obstacles that obstruc

of Anderson's brigade, and his own brigade. The rest of the division was immediately under General Jones. Two regiments of Toombs's brigade, Fifteenth and Seventeenth, and the five companies of Eleof retaking Sharpsburg was perhaps claimed for General A. P. Hill. Toombs is the man, however. Jones's division (I think it was) was driven from Sharpsburg. The plan was conceived by Toombs, actinand recapture. Troup, his aid, he sent to General Lee for artillery. Troup found Lee just after Jones had found him and had reported to him the loss of Sharpsburg. Troup said to General Lee that if had some artillery he thought he could drive them back quite across the creek. What! said General Jones, haven't the enemy got Sharpsburg? No, said Troup, they had it, but have been driven out, aid, tell General Toombs to take any guns he can find, and use them as he thinks best,—he and General Jones evidently highly elated. Troup told me these facts himself. Of course I give the substance
