., and several solemn and beautiful selections were rendered on the organ. The remains were then borne from the hall and escorted to the railroad station, through streets lined with respectful throngs, and placed on a car for transportation to Brunswick. At that place they were taken by the appointed local bearers and escorted by the Brunswick company of the National Guard, Vincent Mountfort Post of the Grand Army, the student body and members of the faculty of Bowdoin College, to the First Ptests of arms or principles, the heart of Chamberlain will go before and arouse new zeal in the breasts of its followers. But the cause must be true and righteous or that heart will be no talisman of victory. General Chamberlain married at Brunswick, December 7, 1855, Caroline Frances Adams, a gracious and accomplished woman. She died October 18, 1905. Their children were Grace Dupee, wife of Harold G. Allen of Boston, a lawyer, and Harold Wyllys, a Companion of this Commandery, a lawyer

hs, he came back to me just after the surrender, and told me he preferred to serve me rather than have his freedom, if he must be separated from me, though he wanted his freedom. His wife was my wife's chambermaid. She wanted to go with me to Brunswick. She had been raised by my wife, and had been raised very much as my wife was. I had paid an enormous price for her husband after my marriage, so as to have him with his wife. I had been offered $2,500 for him, which I had refused to take. I would not have sold him at all, any more than I would have sold my brother. These two negroes were anxious to go with us to Brunswick, but I had but little money, and was unable to take them. On my return to that portion of Georgia, two years afterward, I walked from my father's house a mile before breakfast to their little cabin to see them. When I got to the door the woman was sitting at the breakfast-table. As I opened the door she was in the act of drinking coffee from a saucer. In he
casualties were Lieutenant Myers and one private slightly wounded.--Louisville Journal, March 24. This morning the National forces, amounting to upwards of two thousand, proceeded to Centreville, Va., and occupied the village about four o'clock in the afternoon. It was altogether deserted. The rebels had destroyed as much of their property as they could not carry away, by fire and otherwise. The bridges, railroad track and depot, in that vicinity were extensively damaged, and nothing but wreck and desolation were apparent.--N. Y. Herald, March 12. In the confederate House of Representatives, a resolution was passed advising the planters to withdraw from the cultivation of cotton and tobacco, and devote their energies to raising provisions and cattle, hogs and sheep. Charles Williams, of Fredericksburg, Va., and Samuel P. Carreet, of Washington City, were arrested for disloyalty in Richmond, Va., this day.--Brunswick, Ga., was this day occupied by the National forces.

bout to attack the printing-office of The Palmetto Flag, a disloyal sheet, on the corner of Fourth and Chestnut Streets. The Mayor exhorted the citizens to refrain from violence. The proprietor of the obnoxious sheet displayed the American flag. The Mayor hoisted it over the building, and the crowd dispersed. The people said Amen! and no city in the Union has a brighter record of patriotism and benevolence than Philadelphia. New Jersey was also aroused. Burlington, Trenton, Princeton, Brunswick, Rahway, Elizabethtown, Newark, and Jersey City, through which we passed, were alive with enthusiasm. And when we had crossed the Hudson River, and entered the great city of New York, May 1, 1861. with its almost a million of inhabitants, it seemed as if we were in a vast military camp. The streets were swarming with soldiers. Among the stately trees at the Battery, at its lower extremity, white tents were standing. Before its iron gates sentinels were passing. Rude barracks, filled

. A depot was required for supplying coal, provisions and stores at a point where our ships could find safe anchorage at all times, and where machine shops and docks could be constructed for refitting vessels. The work of supplying vessels was one of vital importance, and a harbor was also Plan of the attack on forts Walker and Beauregard, November 7, 1861. needed as a base of operations against the whole Southern States. The choice of harbors lay between Bull's Bay, Port Royal, Brunswick and Fernandina. The latter, for some reasons, was considered an available place, but finally the Department concurred in the opinion of Flag Officer Dupont that Port Royal contained all the required advantages. Port Royal is one of the finest harbors in the United States, with water sufficient for the largest vessels. It is about equidistant between Charleston and Savannah, and so well aware were the Confederates of its importance that one of their first acts was to fortify it against

r. On the night of June 23d he left the vessel in the first cutter, accompanied by Acting-Ensign J. E. Jones, Acting-Master's Mate William L. Howorth, and fifteen men, crossed the western bar, and passed the forts and town of Smithville without discovery. Near the Zeke Island batteries, Cushing came very near being run down by a steamer — doubtless a blockade-runner, bound out, with a load of cotton — and also narrowly escaped the notice of a guard-boat. As Cushing came abreast of the Brunswick batteries, fifteen miles from his starting-point, the moon came out from the clouds, and disclosed the party to the sentinels on the river-bank, who hailed the boat, and then opened fire upon her. The people in the fort were roused, and the confusion seemed to be general. Cushing pulled for the opposite bank, and along up the other shore, until he got out of sight. When within seven miles of Wilmington both men and boat were secreted in a marsh. When the sun rose, Cushing watched for

Doc. 84 1/2.-naval operations in Florida. Report of Flag-officer Du Pont. Flag-ship Wabash, off St. Augustine, Fla., March 13, 1862. sir: Having on the seventh despatched a division of my force to hold Brunswick, consisting of the Mohican, Pocahontas, and Potomska, under Commander Godon, I shifted my flag from the first-named vessel to the Pawnee, and organized another squadron of light vessels, embracing the four regular gunboats Ottawa, Seneca, Pembina, and Huron, with the Isaac Smith and Ellen, under Lieut. Commanding Stevens, to proceed without delay to the mouth of the St. John's River; cross, if possible, its difficult and shallow bar; feel the forts if still held, and push on to Jacksonville; indeed to go as far as Pilatka, eighty miles beyond, to reconnoitre and capture river-steamers. This expedition was to be accompanied by the armed launches and cutters of the Wabash, under Lieuts. Irwin and Barnes, and by a light-draft transport with the Seventh New-Hampshire
A Port Royal correspondent of the Boston Journal relates the following: Quite an amusing story is told in connection with the affair at Brunswick. It seems that the gunboats, after reconnoitring awhile in front of the rebel fortifications, got into posish, and were about to let slip the dogs, when they discovered a boat push off from the shore at the fort and make directly for the gunboat, upon nearing which it was found to contain a couple of contrabands, who commenced yelling: Hold on, Massa Yankee, don't fire, der sogers all gone to Serwarner, dase leff me all alone. And sure enough they had gone, and the anticipated sport was nipped.

John Williams, captain maintop, on board Pawnee, in attack upon Mathias Point, June twenty-sixth, 1861. Gallantry cannot be spoken of in too high terms. Though wounded by a musket-ball in the thigh, he retained charge of his boat; and when staff was shot away, held the stump in his hand, with the flag, till we got alongside the Freeborn. J. B.
