,131 Present for duty, equipped. Still, in view of the constant discrepancy between the number reported by Union regiments as present for duty, and the number reported by them as taken into action, the estimate of the Comte de Paris may be assumed to be substantially correct. It is very doubtful if Meade had over 82,000 men on the field, including the Sixth Corps, which was in reserve. Historians vary as to the numbers engaged at Waterloo. the Confederates, 70,000 men, and 250 guns. General Lee had about 60,000 men at Gettysburg, present in action. His cavalry were absent. At Waterloo, Wellington's army lost 23,185; at Gettysburg, Meade's army lost 23,003. The loss of the French at Waterloo has never been officially announced, but has been estimated at 26,300; the Confederate loss at Gettysburg, as officially reported by the Confederate Surgeon-General, was 20,448, to which must be added 7,077 wounded and unwounded prisoners whose names were omitted from his lists, but whose n
ichmond. Ferrero's Division of the Ninth Corps, and Hinks' Division of the Eighteenth Corps, were composed entirely of black regiments. In the first attack on Petersburg, June 15, 1864, Hinks' Division achieved a brilliant success, capturing the line of works in its front, and seven pieces of artillery. Had the Army of the Potomac arrived in time to follow up the success of the colored troops, Petersburg would have been taken then; but, by the time that the Eighteenth corps was reinforced, Lee's army had hurried thither by rail and were filing into the intrenchments. The opportunity was gone. In this assault of June 15th, the casualty lists show that the temporary success of the Colored Division was dearly obtained. Among the heavier losses were: Regiment.

was a patriot, who renounced ambition, making no quest of fame, never appearing in public life but from a sense of duty and for a great end. He will not refuse, said Jefferson and Henry, if ordered by his country. But he was still suffering from an overwhelming domestic grief; as he gave his reasons for his refusal, tears ran down the presiding officer's cheeks; and the convention listened to him with the sympathy of a family circle. At the same time that Mason declined, he recommended Francis Lee, who was accordingly chosen in the room of Bland, yet only by one vote over a candidate who was noted for loyalty and dread of a democratic republic. A spirit of moderation prevailed in the election of the committee of safety for the province; Edmund Pendleton, who ever desired it might be remembered Chap. XLV.} 1775. that a redress of grievances, and not a revolution of government, was his wish, was placed at its head. To defray the charges of the late Indian war, and to provide
