The arrest of Vallandigham produced intense a desperate fight of several hours, were repulsed with a loss of more than two hundred killed and wounded. Moore was intrenched, and lost only six killed and twenty-three wounded. Among the latter was a feminine soldier, a sprightly girl from Canada, only sixteen years of age, who served eighteen months in our service. She had been in seven different regiments, and participated in several battles. At Fredericksburg she was severely wounded. On account of the discovery of her sex, she was

They reported that General Price was the Grand Commander of the Missouri and Southern members of these secret leagues, and that C. L. Vallandigham was the Grand Commander of the Northern members, composed of the general and local leaders of the Peace Faction, and their dupes. It was also reported that Vallandigham was to enter Ohio boldly from Canada, to take part in the Democratic Convention for nominating a candidate for President, which was to meet at Chicago. It was also discovered that arms were extensively coming into the State, and distributed secretly among the sympathizers with the rebellion; and it was evident to the general that over the Union cause in that region great peril was impending. Rosecrans promptly laid before the Government the information he had gathered, and asked for re-enforcements. Instead of complying wi

If it should be thought unsafe to use them, there are daring men in Canada, of Morgan's and other commands, who have escaped from Yankee dungeons, and would rejoice at an opportunity of doing something that would make all Yankeedom howl with anguish and consternation. The enterprise was actually undertaken, and on the was made to destroy New York City. Barnum's Museum, several hotels, and one or two theaters, were fired in the evening, by a combustible compound left by secret emissaries of the public enemies. Jacob Thompson, one of the conspirators, then in Canada (see page 45, volume I.), appears to have had the incendiary business in charge, and to have been engaged, in connection with those at Richmond, in the iniquitous scheme long before Sheridan's operations. So early as the beginning of August, he

To Lord John Russell I will say that British merchants will find the cotton exported from our ports, under treaty with the United States, cheaper than cotton obtained by running the blockade. As for Earl Russell himself, I need not tell him that this is a war for freedom and national independence, and the rights of human nature, and not a war for empire; and if Great Britain should only be just to the United States, Canada will remain undisturbed by us, so long as she prefers the authority of the noble Queen to voluntary incorporation in the United States. What shall I tell the King of Prussia? I will tell him that the Germans have been faithful to the standard of the Union, as his excellent Minister, Baron Gerolt, has been constant in his friendship to the United States, during his long residence in this country. To the Emperor of Austria, I shall say that he has proved himself a very wise man, for he told

rofound respect. The members of the Committee. The night of the assassination of Mr. Lincoln was one of horrors in the National Capital. According to a proclamation by his successor (Andrew Johnson), there was evidence in the Bureau of Military Justice, that there had been a conspiracy formed by Jefferson Davis, Jacob Thompson, Clement C.

Cleary, and other rebels and traitors against the Government of the United States, harbored in Canada, to assassinate the President, and the Secretary of State, Mr. Seward; See President Johnson's Proclamation, May 2, 1865.

ake root and grow. The mother of one of the children gave ten cents. This was the first subscription to the stock of The Bird's nest bank, which was organized, the shares being ten cents each, and it was resolved that eight-tenths of all subscriptions should be appropriated to the relief of the Freedmen, and two-tenths for the benefit of The Bird's nest. The children devoted their leisure to selling shares. Very soon there were subscriptions from every State in the Union, but two; also in Canada, England, Scotland, and Germany. In one year from its foundation, the bank had sold 2,400 shares. The founder had then been in the grave several months. Such was the growth of that little seed, in the rich soil of American hearts. Cornelius Vanderbilt, an humble New York boatman fifty years earlier, presented to his Government a fully equipped steam-ship-of-war, worth nearly one million dollars.
