He rendered valuable service in a bold reconnoissance, and for his subsequent gallant conduct I have to refer you to the report of Major Cabell, Thirty-eighth Virginia. And for the meritorious conduct of many others, I respectfully refer to the respective reports of the subordinate commanders. I would also mention the good conduct of one of my clerks, private A. T.

pean optics will not magnify things among us. Ever yours, C. S. To his brother George. Boston, March 1, 1844. my dear George,—I have but one moment for a scrawl to you. We are all stunned this morning by the intelligence of the death of Upshur, Secretary of State, and of Gilmer, Secretary of Navy, by the explosion of a Paixhan-gun on board of the Princeton. So this engine, formed for war, has killed its friends! I hope it may act to discourage further expenditure and experiment in so harm; the wild boar sharpened his tusks that he might be prepared for fight; and so nations keep standing armies and Paixhan-guns—sharpen their tusks—that they may be prepared for war. Far better to be always prepared for peace. The death of Upshur may make way for Webster, though he had already sold his furniture and let his house for three years to the new British Minister, Mr. Pakenham. Mr. Choate had intended to resign, hoping for Webster. as his successor; but it was found, on canvass<
