was sixth. In the general standing on graduation my position was eighteenth in a class of fifty. I was not a very exemplary soldier and went through the Academy without receiving any appointment as a commissioned or non-commissioned officer in the corps of cadets. I had very little taste for scrubbing brass, and cared very little for the advancement to be obtained by the exercise of that most useful art. Among those graduating in my class were General Braxton Bragg, Lieutenant General John C. Pemberton, Major Generals Arnold Elzey and Wm. H. T. Walker, and a few others of the Confederate Army; and Major Generals John Sedgwick, Joseph Hooker, and Wm. H. French and several Brigadier Generals of minor note in the Federal Army. Among my contemporaries at West Point were General Beauregard, Lieutenant General Ewell, Major General Edward Johnson and some others of distinction in the Confederate Army; Major Generals McDowell and Meade and several others in the Federal Army.

umerous combats ensued, in all of which the loyal arms were successful. Loring, with a considerable insurgent force, was driven off toward the south-east, while Pemberton, after a loss of sixty pieces of artillery and many prisoners, regained his shelter within the fortified lines of Vicksburgh, with an army now reduced to betweenigorously made, it was nevertheless unsuccessful. He thereupon sat down before the fortifications, to reduce them by the less bloody but sure methods of siege. Pemberton made a gallant defence, hoping for relief from Johnston. Strenuous efforts were made by the chiefs at Richmond to enable Johnston to render that assistance. Thrrive to raise the siege, nor did success attend any of the attempts from within to break the skilfully drawn lines of General Grant. On the fourth of July, General Pemberton laid down his arms and surrendered the post, with thirty thousand men, two hundred pieces of artillery, seventy thousand small arms, and ammunition sufficien

the rebels all the while continuing their firing. When the train stopped, said my informant, I never saw line of battle formed so quick from off the tops of cars. It was a mystery to me how the men got off so quick. They fought for some time without the fort or earth-work, and then retreated inside, where Colonel Anthony's regiment, the Sixty-sixth Indiana, which garrisoned the post, already were. Here the rebels sent in a written demand to surrender, signed, it was said, by General Pemberton's Adjutant. One of General Sherman's staff asked what reply they were to make to it. Tell them no, of course, said the General. The attack was then renewed, and continued without intermission for some three hours-till after three o'clock--when a gallant lieutenant of the Thirteenth regulars, whose name I am sorry to have forgotten, made a charge upon them with thirty men, drove them like sheep, and they finally disappeared. They were all mounted, but fought part of the time on fo

g back before him. McClernand was at the same time concentrating at Memphis a large force which was to move by the river and cooperate in the attack upon Vicksburg. Alarmed by these great preparations the Confederate Government, which had sent Pemberton, who had been in command of the Department of South Carolina and Georgia, to supersede Van Dorn, instructed Holmes, under date of November 11th, to send ten thousand men to Vicksburg if possible. Holmes, on receiving this order, straightway ordered Hindman to abandon the invasion of Missouri and return to Little Rock with his army. Hindman protested; and to entreaties from Van Dorn, Pemberton, and Joseph E. Johnston (who on the 24th of November had been assigned to the command), and to the reiterated orders of the President and Secretary of War requiring him to reinforce Vicksburg, Holmes only replied that he could do nothing as two-thirds of his force was in north-western Arkansas to meet a heavy advance from Springfield.

On the 24th, General John C. Pemberton, who was in command of the Confederate army at Grenada, received definite and reliable information of the operationda to Vicksburg, and formed the enemy's sole defense between Vicksburg and McNutt Lake, a distance of six miles. General Pemberton describes the battle-ground as follows in his official report: Swamps, lakes, and bayous, running parallel witho army corps, one commanded by Major-General W. T. Sherman, and the other by Brigadier-General George W. Morgan. General Pemberton's report of the defense, on the 29th, is as follows: On the 29th, about 9 o'clock, the enemy was discovered in
