trousseau. Some one had the rudeness to take hold of it to feel the quality of the rich brocade of which the gown was made. She was so much distressed over it that she confided her feelings to her husband. He went to the French dressmaker, Madame Soule, and told her she was to go up to the legation and see if she could not change Madame Yoshida's gowns into regular court-dress, so that she might appear in European dress at the next reception. Madame Soule was much elated over the order, andMadame Soule was much elated over the order, and at the next reception Madame Yoshida appeared in one of her rich gowns which had been converted into a regular European court-dress. The Yoshidas were here many years, making visits to Japan and returning. General Logan and I were dining at their home one night, when Associate Justice Field sat on Madame Yoshida's right and I sat next to Justice Field. The Justice was a very agreeable conversationalist and Madame Yoshida had learned to speak English quite well. Justice Field said: Madame

Union University, used as a hospital. Bragg assented and dispatched a division of 8000 men under Stevenson. This step was contrary to the decided opinion previously expressed to Mr. Davis by General Johnston.

o the fighting force of the army. In a letter written a little later, which I sent down the Cape Fear River for home consumption, I remarked that we brought from Columbia quite a number of men, women, and children who had trudged along in wagons, ambulances, on horses, or on foot. We had two families at our headquarters who had completely mastered all the discomforts of military life and enjoyed the novelty. A gentleman artist, by the name of Halpin, with his wife and daughter, and a Mr. Soule, a telegraph operator, with his bride, were our guests. About the time of leaving Columbia many robberies were committed; watches, jewelry, and sometimes sums of money were taken by violence from the inhabitants, after the highwayman's style. So many instances came to my knowledge that my indignation against the perpetrators became excessive, and my compassion for the sufferers strong. From Rice Creek Springs, February 20th, I wrote a letter to Logan, describing this apparently gro

T south of 36° 30′ should be objected to because its constitution authorized slavery, which was refused by nearly an exclusively sectional vote. At this juncture Mr. Soule, of Louisiana, proposed a test vote by an amendment to Utah Territorial bill simply declaring that Utah shall be received into the Union with or without slavery e the good and the harmony and the Union of the whole country. This I shall do, God willing, to the end of the chapter. The vote was taken, and the amend ment of Soule was adopted in the Senate by a vote representing two-thirds of the States.

Washington letters state that Abe Lincoln has the itch, caught from Gen. Lane's Kansas ruffians, while they were quartered in the east room of the Presidential mansion. Three Sicilian sailors have been arrested at New Orleans, charged with communicating with Lincoln sea constables. Pierre' Soule and B. M. Palmer, D. Q., were speakers on the 4th, at Camp Lewis, near New Orleans. Rev. Thomas Hume, jr., has received an appointment as Chaplain in the Confederate service.

This New Orleans gentleman relates some interesting scenes with Butler and citizens. Senator Soule was summoned before his Highness, Butler. Butler remarked, that he had sent for him to place him in confinement, and would state the charges.--Soule replied. "Oh, don't trouble yourself, I have been expecting to be sent below every day sincSoule replied. "Oh, don't trouble yourself, I have been expecting to be sent below every day since you arrived. I only ask time to purchase a musquito net." Butler replied, "that he was to be sent where nets would not be in demand, Fort Warren." Senator S. thanked him, saying "his health was feeble, and he had no doubt it would be a benefit to him." Senator S. was too much for old Butler, forestalling him at every point. Another incident. A Mrs. S — m, a very wealthy widow lady, desired a permit to go without the city to see a grandchild that was very ill. She called upon Butler, a
