e been discovered and taken from the men who have been arrested. If there ever was in any portion of the republic, any spot of earth, or any tine, where and when the writ of habeas corpus ought to be suspended, the city of Baltimore was the spot, and the last few weeks the time, for its suspension. Mr. Baker said: As a member of the Military Committee, I agree heartily in the report of its Chairman of the bills now upon your table. Whether that peace shall be conquered at Richmond, or Montgomery, or New-Orleans, or in the wilds of Texas, I do not presume to say; but I do know, if I may use so bold a word, that the determined aggregated power of the whole people of this country — all its treasure, all its arms, all its blood, all its enthusiasm, kindled, concentrated, poured out in one mass of living valor upon any foe — will conquer. Mr. Fessenden suggested to Mr. King to modify his amendment so as to read: That nothing therein contained should be construed as authorizing a perma
out this time. I sent Acting Ensign Nelson on board the Boardman to render assistance, as he knew the channel; Mr. Nelson afterwards went on board of the Boston to pilot her to Bennett's Point. On his arrival at Mosquito Creek he informed Colonel Montgomery that that was the place where the landing was to be made. Colonel Montgomery, seeing a steamer standing up the river, said his orders were to follow. Mr. Nelson said he could pilot no farther. The Boston still kept on, and got in shore, Colonel Montgomery, seeing a steamer standing up the river, said his orders were to follow. Mr. Nelson said he could pilot no farther. The Boston still kept on, and got in shore, under Chapman's battery, about midnight. At daylight, a pilot having been found, I started up the river to carry out my orders; while under way an Aid of General Birney's came on board and informed me of the grounding of the Boston, and the General thought it useless for me to attempt to get up, and to send our pilot and two boats to him. The pilot of this vessel was confident he could carry the ship up with safety; then the Aid said I had better try it, as we could render them valuable assista

Two remained in the wagon and four attempted to escape into the woods, two of whom were recaptured. They acknowledged that they were bound for Richmond, and were returning from an unsuccessful attempt to cross the river. They were all armed but one, and two of the party belonged to the rebel army. Their names were as follows: Theodore Dent, J. R. Bateman, J. I. Turner, B. Montgomery. Next day sent them under guard to Washington, accompanied by a Dr. Hardie, whom I arrested upon suspicion of harboring these men previous to crossing. They are all now comfortably situated at the Capitol Prison. Arrived at Port Tobacco the evening of the second, where we encamped for the night. Discovered nothing at this place of a suspicious character. The morning of the third visited Captain Kenyon, commanding squadron of Scott's Legion, at Chapel Point, about four miles below
Doc. 35.-capture of the Chesapeake. Lieut.-Commander Nickels's report. United States Steamer Ella and Anna, Boston, December 23, 1863. Sir: In accordance with Commodore Montgomery's order of the ninth instant, to proceed to sea and cruise in search of the pirate Chesapeake, we got under way at twenty minutes to one P. M., on the tenth instant, and proceeded to sea. Arrived at Eastport, Maine, on the twelfth instant, at nine A. M., having encountered head winds and thick weather, ae. He then told me to repair on board. I went on board, when he ordered me to proceed to Halifax with the prize for adjudication; at which port we arrived and dropped anchor at quarter before four P. M. I immediately telegraphed to Commandant Montgomery of my arrival, and of my capture. The matter now remains in Captain Cleary's hands, who, on the morning of the nineteenth, ordered me to transfer the prisoners to the custody of the British officers, and to turn the prize over to the British a
ated with water, which dripped through in several places. To Captain Huguenin, Chief of Artillery, Major Bryan, A. A. G., Lieutenant-Colonel Pressly, commanding Twenty-fifth South Carolina volunteers, and Lieutenant-Colonel Dantzler, superintending embarkation, I am chiefly indebted for the success of the evacuation. My thanks are due to Mr. J. F. Mathews, engineer corps, for the use of his boat and crew, for moving troops, and bringing me off at the last. Captain Hayne, and Lieutenants Montgomery and Blum, of the Twenty-fifth South Carolina volunteers (three valuable officers), were killed at their posts of duty, during the last of the siege. Let their names be honored. I desire to record the faithful services of privates Laith, and Stewart, and Bond, of the Gist Guard, South Carolina volunteers, who have remained voluntarily on duty at Battery Wagner almost the entire siege, always attentive and cool under fire. Stewart would make an excellent commissary, and Laith, a p
General Bowen, with whom I had had a personal interview in his tent on the night of the sixteenth, and who received my instructions from my own lips (Lieutenant-Colonel Montgomery, of Lieutenant-General E. K. Smith's staff, being then present, and acting as my A. D. C.), I do not believe to be responsible for it; he was too old a the desire of Major-General Grant to have a personal conference with me, and this being agreed to, at three o'clock P. M., accompanied by General Bowen and Captain Montgomery (then supposed to be a Lieutenant-Colonel), I proceeded to the lines, where I met General Grant, surrounded by a number of his officers. I soon learned tha in his letter, the conference could terminate, and hostilities be resumed immediately. After some further conversation, he proposed that General Bowen and Captain Montgomery, and two of his officers, Major-Generals McPherson and Smith, should retire for consultation, and suggest such terms as they might think proper for our cons
