But to return to Captain Mitchel. On the 20th of July, 1864, the sentinel on the parapet of Fort Sumter sent to ask the commander to be allowed to leave his post because the shelling of the enemy's batteries on Morris Island was too severe for him to remain without the bomb-proof. Captain Mitchel refused to give him permission to do so, thinking it a bad precedent to establish, but when he received another urgent request of a like nature from the same soldier a few moments later, he went upon the ramparts to see for himself if it was indeed necessary to withdraw the man from his post. He had only been there a short time, when he saw one of the enormous 300-pound shells coming directly towards himself; but

Owing to the depth of water they could get nearer to us than they could to Fort Fisher, and could sweep every-thing to the middle of the river. The same operation, on a much smaller scale was entirely successful against the forts at the mouth of Charleston harbor, except that they were well defended by sober, resolute men, until it was necessary to evacuate, and the harbor was closed by the fall of Fort Wagner. * * But enough for the present. I am both tired and sad. I knew my wife would be welcome with you, but I feared it would look badly for me to send her off in the panic, and I concluded for her to remain.

Wells,) who spread for us one of the most elegant suppers we ever saw, which was seasoned until the wee sma‘ hours with delightful converse and congenial company.
