. God grant that the struggle may be successful, and that the rights of the North and the South may once more be found compatible with that condition of unity, peace, and concord, which belongs to us as a Christian people. I thank you, gentlemen, for remembering me so kindly on this occasion, and remain respectfully and truly your friend and servant, Robert C. Winthrop. Hon. Thomas Russell, Col. N. A. Thompson, H. F. French, Esq., Committee. Letter from Hon. Emory Washburn. Cambridge, Sept. 9, 1861. Gentlemen: You have entire permission to make any use of my name you may think proper in promoting the objects of the proposed meeting in Faneuil Hall this evening. I hope, besides, to be personally present. May we not hope that it will be followed by similar meetings by the people all over our Commonwealth and all over our common country? If the mere election of our national rulers, the last autumn, was an occasion of sufficient importance to call out our citizen
wenty-second Indiana. The Iatan also received the balance of the Eighteenth Indiana. Every thing being in readiness, the expedition again started up the river. The troops on board the War Eagle and Iatan (Twenty-second and Eighteenth Indiana) were under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Hendricks, of the Twenty-second; those on the White Cloud and Desmoines (Twenty-sixth regiment Indiana) being under command of Colonel Wheatly. Colonel Hendricks' command was destined to Glasgow and Cambridge, and to reconnoitre about the neighborhood of those places. Colonel Wheatley's was bound for Lexington. Every thing went on smoothly; we passed the towns of Arrow Rock and Saline without any trouble — in fact they were almost entirely deserted, the town of Saline in particular. There was not a single person in it — the stores and houses all closed. Late in the evening of the 19th we landed about five miles below Glasgow. Three companies were detached from the War Eagle and three from
our object safely and successfully, and are wishing for further opportunities of annoying the secessionists. We have been on the river ten days, and have picked up seventy-three runaway negroes. They report that the inhabitants are much incensed against us, and are about preparing batteries, at different points, to endeavor to drive us out of the river, though we have seen none of them as yet. Nov. 8.--This morning we threw a number of shells upon Gray's Point, where we had reason to think the rebels are erecting a battery, and this afternoon have thrown about seventy-five shells into the village of Urbana. A contraband who came from there this morning, reports that the town is deserted, except by a garrison of two hundred and forty troops, and that they have a large quantity of ammunition stored there. We do not know, as yet, the full effect of our cannonade, though several buildings in the vicinity of the magazine are known to have been struck. Yours, truly, Cambridge.
rough the left leg; Francis Brown, shot through the back and across the breast; Charles Hawkins, cutlass wound on left arm. The success of the expedition was most complete, and too much praise cannot be given to those brave officers and men who volunteered to go on so desperate an undertaking as cutting out a ship under four forts, and near a large town, exposed to the fire of all their guns, and some six miles away from the ship. The captain of the Royal Yacht is a notorious fellow, who was at one time in jail at Boston, Massachusetts, on the charge of boarding, in Boston harbor, the schooner Saul, taking out the cargo, and setting fire to the vessel. He was taken to Cambridge jail, but by means of false keys he escaped, in August 1844. It is reported that there is a standing reward of one thousand dollars for him, in which case I should think these brave fellows are fully entitled to it, as he is now safe on board this ship, and will be sent North by the first opportunity.
