General Horace Porter, Campaigning with Grant, Chapter 24 (search)

Stephens was the Vice-President of the Confederacy; Campbell, a former justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, was Assistant Secretary of War; and Hunter was president pro tempore of the Confederate Senate. As General Grant had been instructed from Washington to keep them at City Point until further orders, he conducted them in person to the headquarters steamer, the Mary Martin, which was lying at the wharf, made them his guests, and had them provided with well-furnished state-rooms and comfortable meals during their stay.

In the afternoon I received a telegram from General Grant, saying: General Sherman will be here this evening to spend a few hours. I should like to have you come down. Sherman's coming was a surprise-at least to me it was-this despatch being my first intimation of his expected arrival. Well kn

So popular is this measure, that even the working-classes of England have united to present to him a valuable chronometer. It bears the following inscription: Presented to Captain Ingraham, of the United States navy, by some thousands of the British working-classes, for his noble conduct in rescuing Martin Koszta, the Hungarian refugee, from the Austrian authorities, April, 1854. 1855.--Mr. Benjamin Noyes, son of Benjamin, was born in West Medford, and educated at the public school. He is now head engineer in constructing one hundred miles of railroad for the Emperor of the Russias. 1855.--There are many stumps of large pitch-pine trees now remaining in East Medford, on land of Mr. Charles Hall. The field is called stump-marsh. At the usual spring-tides, the salt-water covers this fie
