Chapter 24: the storming of Monterey, 1846. The army arrived at Walnut Springs, two or three miles from Monterey, September 19, 1846. Two days afterward offensive operations were begun. They ended in the capitulation of Monterey, a city strongly fortified and stubbornly defended. Mr. John Savage, in his Living representative men, gives a brilliant account of the part taken in these operations by the Mississippi Rifles. In the storming of Monterey, he writes, Colonel Davis and his riflemen played a most gallant part. The storming of one of its strongest forts (Taneria), on the 21st of September, was a desperate and hard-fought fight. The Mexicans had dealt such death by their cross-fires that they ran up a new flag in exultation and in defiance of the assaults which at this time were being made in front and rear. The Fourth Artillery, in the advance, had been terribly cut up; but the Mississippians and Tennesseeans pressed steadily forward. Under a galling fire of coppe

The New York Executive Committee, consisting of Messrs. Savage, O'Gorman, and Daly, have had several lengthy and interesting interviews with the President, Gen. McClellan, and senators and members of the House, all of whom favor it. The committee's interview with Gen. McClellan was especially gratifying.ng the President to make an exchange, will pass the Senate tomorrow. In point of fact, an exchange has been practically going on, thirty prisoners having been sent from here yesterday to Fortress Monroe, while large numbers have been likewise released from Fort Warren. Richard O'Gorman, John Savage, Judge Daly, and Collector Barney were before the cabinet to-day, with reference to a general exchange of prisoners, and particularly with reference to Colonel Corcoran.--N. Y. Herald, December 11.
ixed courts of justice, accompany company the publication. The obsequies of Colonel J. Lafayette Riker, of the Sixty-second regiment of New York volunteers and of Colonel James Miller, of the Eighty-first Pennsylvania regiment, took place in the city of New York.--The schooner Julia was captured at Barataria, La., by master's mate John H. Gregory, with a crew of twelve men from the United States gunboat Kittatinny. A fight took place on James Island, S. C., between a body of Union troops, and a large force of rebels. It was hotly contested for more than two hours, and ended in the rout of the rebels, with a loss to them of seventeen killed, thirty wounded, and six prisoners. The Unionists lost three killed and thirteen wounded.--Official Report. The Union army under General Fremont reached Port Republic, Va.--The rebels in front of the Union lines at Savage's station, Chickahominy Swamp, Va., kept up a bombardment, without effect, their shells falling short of the mark.

rought back from the field of Manassas on that day of disastrous rout and panic; but he, at least, and the little band who stood around him in its defence, went with it into captivity. (Wild huzzas from the regiment.) I need say no more when presenting this splendid gift, with which these ladies have honored your regiment, than to point to this Irish example of the faith and fidelity that is due by a soldier to his flag. Col. Corcoran is now within the walls of a rebel prison, one of the selected victims for revengeful Southern retaliation; but he has the satisfaction of feeling that he owes his sad, though proud preeminence to having acted as became a descendant of Sarsfield. Of this beautiful American standard, illustrative alike of the munificence of its donors, and of the skill of the hands that wrought it, I say to you, as a parting injunction, in the language of John Savage's Song of the sixty-ninth : Plant that flag On fort and crag, With the people's voice of thunder.

the Captain-General immediately came alongside, and required that it should be at once lowered, as it represented no known nation, and the master, who had an American flag ready at hand, hoisted that in place. He then went to the Vice-Consul, Mr. Savage, acting since the departure of Major Helmn, and presented a register from the Confederated States. The Consul replied he could recognize no such papers: but on the captain representing that he was innocent in the matter, having taken command a to Washington. The case was an anomalous one; the owners might be really loyal citizens, but forced in absence of regular United States officers, to take out Confederate States papers, and in the absence of any instructions from Washington, Mr. Savage hardly felt willing to take the responsibility of entirely refusing to have any thing to do with the vessel, after she had hoisted the United States flag, and thus of condemning her to lie here, unable to leave, an indefinite time. Perhaps it
bled all the troops, numbering over thirteen hundred, not on duty, he introduced Col. Hunter, of the Third Cavalry U. S. Army, who has just been assigned the command of the brigade of the aqueduct, consisting of the Fifth, Twenty-eighth, and Sixty-ninth New York regiments, and the detachments in the vicinity. Col. Hunter was received with great enthusiasm, and Col. Corcoran made some patriotic allusions to the Flag, and was loudly cheered. Capt. Thos. F. Meagher, having been called upon, made a brief but high-toned and patriotic address, showing the devotion Irishmen should bear to that flag which brought succor to them in Ireland; and to which, upon landing in this country, they swore undivided allegiance. He was heartily applauded throughout. Col. Corcoran, haying announced that Mr. Savage's new national song would be sung, introduced the author, who was received with loud cheering. After it subsided, he sung the following, the whole regiment present joining in the choruses:--
e people's voice of thunder! We'll plant that flag, Where no hand can drag Its immortal folds asunder! We must keep that flag where it e'er has stood, In front of the free, the wise, and the good; Then hurrah, hurrah! For the Flag of the Union! We must keep that flag, &c. We'll raise that starry banner, boys-- Hurrah, hurrah! We'll raise that starry banner, boys, On field, fort, mast, and steeple! And fight and fall, At our country's call, By the glorious flag of the people! In God, the just, We place our trust, To defend the flag of the people. The effect of some fourteen hundred voices thundering forth the refrain, was one of the most exciting and inspiriting we have ever witnessed. At the close the utmost enthusiasm prevailed, and three cheers for John Savage were given. Lieut.-Col. Nugent, Lieut. E. K. Butler, and Father T. J. Mooney, the popular chaplain of the Sixty-ninth, by song and sentiment contributed to the enjoyment of the occasion.--National Intelligencer, June 1.

When o'er the land the battle brand In Freedom's cause was gleaming, And everywhere upon the air The starry flag was streaming, The widow cried unto her pride: “Go forth and join the muster Thank God, my son can bear a gun To crown his race with lustre I Go forth! and come again not home, If by disgrace o'erpowered; My heart can pray o'er hero's clay, But never clasp a coward!” “God bless thee, boy, my pride, my joy, My old eyes' light and treasure-- Thy father stood 'mid flame and blood To fill the freeman's measure. His name thy name — the cause the same, Go join thy soldier brothers! Thy blow alone protects not one, But thousands, wives and mothers. May every blessing Heaven can yield Upon thy arms be showered! Come back a hero from the field, But never come a co
