mistaking him for a private, tells him, with an oath, that this is neither the time nor place for stragglers, and orders him back to his regiment; and so the night wears on, and fifty thousand men lay upon their guns again. January, 3 Colonel Shanklin, with a strong detachment from my brigade, was captured last night while on picket. Rifle pits are being dug, and I am ordered to protect the workmen. The rebels hold a strip of woods in our immediate front, and we get up a lively skirmishlle in the morning. It is impossible to collect the information necessary in the short time allowed me. One of my regimental commanders, Colonel Foreman, was killed; another, Colonel Humphrey, was wounded, and is in hospital; another, Lieutenant-Colonel Shanklin, was captured, and is absent; but I gathered up hastily what facts I could obtain as to the casualties in the several regiments, and wrote my report in the few minutes which remained for me to do so, and sent it in. I have not had an o
retion. To Lieutenant Pollock, Adjutant of the regiment, too much praise cannot be rendered; conspicuous in the field, leading the men in every fight, and aiding most materially in rallying the regiment around its colors.

was attacked by a brigade of the enemy, evidently by superior numbers, and driven in, with considerable loss. Lieutenant-Colonel Shanklin, commanding the regiment, was surrounded and taken prisoner, while gallantly endeavoring to draw off his men, allowed to hold them. Our skirmishers were then just leaving the woods. I ordered the Forty-second Indiana, Lieutenant-Colonel Shanklin commanding, to take that position; which he did. But early the next morning the enemy, in large force, attacked Colonel Shanklin, first furiously shelling the woods, and drove the regiment back to our lines, taking Shanklin prisoner. It was this wood that was retaken on Saturday night as before described. The troops of the division behaved admirably. I Shanklin prisoner. It was this wood that was retaken on Saturday night as before described. The troops of the division behaved admirably. I could not wish them to behave more gallantly. The Ninth and Seventeenth brigades, under the lead of their gallant commanders, Scribner and Beatty, were, as well as the Twenty-eighth brigade, Colonel Starkweather, veterans; they were with me at Chapl

87, for my transport service. He is reported as having been killed by an elephant. It is not long ago I recorded in these pages the death of his good and beautiful wife. This devoted couple were wonderful for their piety, and their devotion to the negroes of the Congo. Early in 1894, Stanley caught cold, and had a succession of malarial attacks. Change of air was advised, and he went to the Isle of Wight, where I joined him a few days later. I here give extracts from his letter. Shanklin, March 15th, 1894. I came here from Fresh-water, because that place did not agree with me, and because the accommodation provided was wretched, and the rooms ill-ventilated. I wonder how many people died in the room I occupied? I fancied their spirits sailing about from corner to corner, trying to get out into the air, and at night settling around my head, disturbing my sleep in consequence! I have been reading Vasari's Machiavelli, and, I am thankful to say, he has removed the disagree

ic schools. A jail has just been opened, for the herdsmen of the district are unruly, and the prison of San Jose is a long way off. Pigeons flutter in the roadways, lending to the town an air of poetry and peace. Some offshoots flow from Main Street into open fields, in which Swiss-like chalets nestle in the midst of peaches, grapes, and figs. One church stands on the left, a second on the right of Main Street, and folks step in and out of these churches as neatly dressed as visitors at Shanklin and Torquay. Now here's a place to open your eyes like a cocktail, eh, Colonel? cries the settler. I am not a colonel. So far as I have anything to do with arms, I serve Queen Victoria as a private in the Inns of Court Volunteers. Then you are equal to a colonel! Sir, a man must have a title if he wishes to escape notice, as a gentleman in this country would like to do. Once I was crossing Firebaugh ferry, on San Joaquin River over here, beyond the range, when the old boatman

The Third Regiment South Carolina Volunteers, 1,000 strong, reached this city yesterday morning between 6 and 7 o'clock, and went into camp near the Reservoir. This is considered one of the finest regiments of the State and in truth, their noble appearance, genuine military bearing and discipline, indicate their title of a crack regiment. The following is a list of the officers and companies: Field Officers--Colonel, James H. Wi

errillas who yet remain. Bill Anderson's gang is still at large, and is said to be commanded by a fellow named Jackson, who is a worthy successor in the sleeping of prisoners and other cruelties committed by the bushwhackers. An energetic movement has been made in North Missouri to clean out the guerrillas from that section as early as possible. General Craig left St. Joseph several days ago with about two thousand mounted militia for a raid on the rebels in Platte and Clay counties. Colonel Shanklin, from Chillicothe, and other officers from the line of Hannibal and St. Joseph railroad, are after the rebels also; and the fur has begun to fly before this. Every one of these expeditions contains a majority of the local loyal militia, who have in many cases been driven from their homes by the rebels. There is no concealment of the fact that they mean to be revenged on their secession neighbors, who have pointed them out to the rebels as Union men; and many of these sympathizers, who
