On this day, Major-General Butler assumed command of the Department of Virginia, North and South Carolina, headquarters at Fort Monroe. May 27, Company G, of Lowell, Captain P. A. Davis, was assigned to the regiment temporarily. July 1, the regiment and naval brigade left Fort Monroe early in the morning, crossed Hampton Creek, and occupied thning these companies could not move. They had, therefore, either to force their way through the city on foot, retreat, or surrender. They determined to go forward. In getting out of the cars, cheers were given by the mob for Jeff Davis and South Carolina. Secession flags were flaunted in the faces of the men; they were told to dig their graves; that thirty Southern men could whip the whole of the Yankee State of Massachusetts. Our men bore these affronts with silence. They were two hundred

The Persia, the steamer in which he was a passenger, had taken out many orders to purchase. He found an agent there from South Carolina, to purchase arms for that State. New York had also sent out an agent in the same ship with him; but he did not know the fact until after his arrival in England. There were also several private speculators in the ship for the purchase of ared. The proposition is respectfully declined. Your obedient servant, William Schouler, Adjutant-General. The Twenty-eighth Regiment consequently never became a part of Major-General Butler's command. When organized, it was sent to South Carolina, and was subsequently transferred to the Army of the Potomac. In the foregoing pages, we have endeavored to give an impartial transcript of the correspondence between the Governor and General Butler, and of the other parties who incidenta

Colonel Ritchie next visited the Twenty-eighth Regiment, which was composed, in great part, of men of Irish birth, and which had been brought up from South Carolina to reinforce the Army of the Potomac. It was stationed at Newport News, and formed part of General Stevens's division. Of this regiment, the Colonel writes,mplete the organization of the Twenty-ninth Regiment, which was sent forward, Jan. 7, to Fortress Monroe; the Twenty-eighth Regiment, which left the State for South Carolina via New York, Jan. 8; the Sixth Battery, which sailed from Boston for Ship Island, Department of the Gulf, Feb. 7; the Thirty-first Regiment, which sailed in , were in the Department of the Gulf in Louisiana. The Twenty-eighth Regiment of Infantry and the First Regiment of Cavalry were in the Army of the South, in South Carolina. The First Regiment of Heavy Artillery was stationed in forts near Washington, on the Virginia side of the Potomac. The Seventh Company of Light Artillery w
deposed from the command of the army. The pursuit of Lee commenced; but it was too late. This great year of war was practically finished. The army went into winter quarters, taking position in Virginia to shield the capital from attack. Recruiting for the army continued briskly through the year; the losses in battle, the disasters on the Peninsula and under General Pope, stimulated rather than depressed enlistments. Successes had crowned our arms in the Southwest and in North and South Carolina; and hope grew strong, that, in the end, the Union arms would be victorious everywhere. The wounded and sick who came home spoke in cheering words. They claimed that the Union army had been victorious every time and everywhere. This buoyant and gallant spirit, expressed by those who had seen the most and suffered the most, was remarkable.

The proclamation was to take effect on the 1st of January, 1863. On the 2d, General Order No. 1 was issued by the us men in that city, and that a tumult might ensue. These prudent counsels prevailed. The regiment was ordered to South Carolina. It came to Boston on the twenty-eighth day of May, and embarked on board the United-States steam transport De Molayendid sight to see the large vessel, with its precious freight, vanish in the distance, as it proceeded on its way to South Carolina.

It was the wish of the Governor to have it sent to South Carolina, where the Fifty-fourth then was. On July 11, the Governor received from thAs we have already stated, the regiment was not sent to New Orleans, but to South Carolina. As these were the only colored infantry regiments raised in Massachusetd Major James Sturgis, of Boston, assistant Adjutant-General, to proceed to South Carolina to make the payment; but the men refused to receive it.

These two battalions were immediately transferred to the Department of Virginia and North Carolina, with orders to report to Major-General Butler, at Fortress Monroe. The First Battalion, which had been for a long time in South Carolina, was also sent to Virginia, to report to General Butler.

They were asked if they were not afraid the black soldiers would kill them, and they confessed they were. t black men are not murderers, and that, if they do not treat our black prisoners well, I will retaliate on you.

This result has promptly succeeded upon the extraordinary and brilliant exploits of the army commanded by Major-General Sherman, whose march through the States of Georgia, South Carolina, and far into the State of North Carolina, while it swept, by its resistless energy, the cities of Savannah, Columbia, Charleston, and their surrounding territories. . . .To these have been added the recent capture of Fort Fisher, on the Cape Clear River, and the occupation of Wilmington by a force detailed for that purpose by Lieutenant-General Grant, and immediately led by Brigadier-General Terry in an enterprise most brilliant, both in action and result.
