ston to transport all his forces into the State of Mississippi and to combine them with Johnston's to crush Grant. Johnston, who had just evacuated Jackson, had answered him, with good reason, that it was too late: a part of his small army had been brought back to Mobile. This important port, which would have furnished for a campaign in Georgia a base of operations as good as Chattanooga, appeared to be greatly threatened by the fleet. If a landing was effected to attack the place, General Dabney Maury would be able to oppose only two thousand men to the besiegers. But the completion of the most important works of defence, the arrival of a certain number of recruits, and the news that the Federal expedition had been abandoned allowed Johnston to remove troops from Mobile. He was preparing to return to Bragg most of the troops which the latter had sent him at the end of May: these troops were, on the one hand, Liddell's, Ector's, and Gist's brigades, besides Walthall's, all placed

At the period of which we are speaking a numberted. Fulton, some thirty years later, had not succeeded any better than Bushnell. There is nothing astonishing about this, for submarine navigation is hardly better improved to-day than it was at that period. Therefore, the bureau conducted by Maury at Richmond gave no encouragement to the inventors who sought the means of carrying torpedoes even under the hulls of hostile vessels. It was no doubt right in regard to those who thought that it was possible, amidst the troubles of the struggle

ve them in these positions until Sherman comes to lead them to new combats. Before relating the expedition undertaken by Forrest shortly after the check of Sooy Smith we must conclude in a few words the enumeration we have promised of the demonstrations made to support Sherman's campaign against Meridian. The projected landing in the vicinity of Mobile having been abandoned, Farragut undertook to attack this place with the flotilla alone, so as to retain within its walls the troops which Maury might have been induced to send to Polk's assistance. He appeared on the 20th of January with several vessels in front of Mobile. This demonstration was to enable the Union admiral to reconnoitre the approaches of the place and prepare the extensive naval operation so long projected, and which he was to execute with so much ├ęclat a few months later. We have said that the fine Federal division of cavalry which Sooy Smith had taken as far as West Point, Mississippi, had returned to Memph
