land. Nothing could be more peaceful in its looks than Monterey in January, 1847. We had already made the acquaintance of Commodore Shubrick and the officers of the Independence in Valparaiso, so that we again met as old friends. Immediate preparations were made for landing, and, as I was quartermaster and commissary, I had plenty to do. There was a small wharf and an adobe custom-house in possession of the navy; also a barrack of two stories, occupied by some marines, commanded by Lieutenant Maddox; and on a hill to the west of the town had been built a two-story block-house of hewed logs occupied by a guard of sailors under command of Lieutenant Baldwin, United States Navy. Not a single modern wagon or cart was to be had in Monterey, nothing but the old Mexican cart with wooden wheels, drawn by two or three pairs of oxen, yoked by the horns.

Moody, Parker, and Woolfolk; Lieutenant Elliot, commanding Rhett's battery; Lieutenants Gilbert and Fickling, Rhett's battery; Lieutenant Parkenson, Parker's battery, severely wounded in the leg; Lieutenant Sillers, Moody's battery; Sergeants Conroy and Price; and Corporals Gaulin and Donoho, Moody's battery. I would also mention Lieutenant Maddox, of Colonel Cutts's battalion of artillery, who had two guns under my command, and behaved with great gallantry. My Adjutant, Lieutenant W. H.

erstood that he was to be taken directly through to Fort Lafayette, New York. Arrival of prisoners. Last Saturday evening the propeller Reliance came up from the flotilla, bringing with her three prisoners--one a Confederate officer, Captain Maddox. It appears that they had gone over to Maryland from Virginia, at Herring creek, near Piney Point, for the purpose of recruiting for the Secession army, and the officers of the Reliance going ashore there on Friday evening, were informed of the circumstance by an old lady living near the river.--Captain Maddox was found in bed, from which he was ruthlessly extracted and transferred to the propeller, with his colleagues, who were together brought here and placed in confinement. The Reliance reported all quiet down the river. Confederate signals. From Piney Point to Fort Washington there is a regularly established line of signals on the Maryland shore of the Potomac.
