e maiden's cheek will wear a hue More healthy in the sun, While counting beads of luscious corn The dark-eyed harvest nun! The old man with his snowy locks, White as the winter's zone, Bends on his knee and thanks our God In reverential tone. Children will leap and laugh and lie Upon the greener grass, And shade their sunnier eyes of love While argosies do pass-- The argosies of mellow corn, On rivers and on seas; These are our glorious coat of arms-- We conquer Worlds with these. Nature herself doth take a smile When unto her are born (To feed her starving million men) So many grains of corn. The ill-“Fed” serfs of Cotton King Fall down in conscious shame, And glorious paeans loudly sing Unto the Rescuer's name. All tongues, all nations, will be glad When corn has come to reign, To spread his banners o'er the earth In peace and love again! And I, forsooth, this simple hymn Give to my real King; May fortune shield both him and me Beneath the Union wing. --Baltimore American, April 10
substitutes. --A correspondent of the New-Orleans Crescent, at Richmond, writes as follows: Our chief article of commerce, nowadays, is a commodity known in the market as substitutes. The article has risen from one hundred dollars to two hundred dollars, again to five hundred dollars, and from that to one thousand dollars and one thousand five hundred dollars. The cheapest kind now offering commands five hundred dollars readily. A wretch, named Hill, has been making enormous sums, as much as three thousand dollars to five thousand dollars a day, by plundering substitutes, some of whom are the very scum of the earth. --Boston Transcript, April 10.
53. the Stars and Stripes. Sung at the grand Union concert at the Assembly Rooms Hanover street, given for the benefit of the National Union Reading Rooms, April tenth, and repeated April nineteenth, 1862. Rally round the flag, boys, Give it to the breeze; That's the banner we love, On the land and seas. Brave hearts are under it, Let the traitors brag, Gallant lads, fire away, And fight for the flag. Chorus--Their flag is but a rag, Ours is the true one; Up with the Stars and Stripes, Down with the new one. Raise then the banner high, Ours is the true one; Up with the Stars and Stripes, Down with the new one. Let our colors fly, boys, Guard them day and night, For victory is liberty And God will bless the right. Rally round the flag, boys, Give it to the breeze, That's the banner we love, On the land and seas. Brave hearts are under it, Let the traitors brag, Gallant lads, fire away, And fight for the flag. Floating high above us, Glowing in the sun, Speaking loud to all heart
General Forrest made a cavalry raid on the Nashville and Columbia Railroad, burning the bridge and capturing Colonel Bloodgood's command at Brentwood. General Green Clay Smith, arriving opportunely with about six hundred cavalry, attacked the enemy in the rear, and recovered a large portion of the property captured at Brentwood, pursuing the rebels to the Little Harpeth, where they were reenforced. His loss in this attack was four killed, nineteen wounded, and forty missing. On the tenth of April, a guerilla force attacked a train near Lavergne, guarded by forty men. The cars were destroyed, and nearly half of the guard killed and wounded. At the same time Van Dorn, with a large mounted force, attacked Franklin, but was repulsed by Major-General Granger, with a loss of nineteen killed, thirty-five wounded left on the field, and forty-eight prisoners. Major-General Joseph J. Reynolds made a raid upon the Manchester and McMinnville Railroad, destroying depots, rolling-stock, suppl

Keitt, of the Twentieth regiment South-Carolina volunteers. Both General Trapier and Col. Keitt were on the island at the time of action, and during the firing were moving from battery to battery. General Beauregard to the troops. headquarters Department of South-Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, Charleston, S. C., April 10. General orders, no. 55. The Commanding General is gratified to have to announce to the troops the following joint resolutions unanimously adopted by the Legislature of the State of South-Carolina: Resolved, That the General Assembly reposes unbounded confidence in the ability and skill of the Commanding General of this department, and the courage and patriotism of his brave soldiers, with the blessing of God, to defend our beloved city and to beat back our vindictive foes.

Human memory is frail, I know; and while, in what I have said or may say on this subject, my recollection is as vivid as upon any other contemporaneous event, about which there is no difference, I lay no claim to infallibility, and I am very far from imputing to the veteran General Trimble any improper intention or motive in what he has said. Wishing to be brief, I hope the accompanying papers, (A and B,) referred to above, and also General Trimble's papers of the sixth of January and tenth of April, and my own official report, may be attentively read; what follows will then be better understood. The idea which, strange to say, never entered General Trimble's head, never for one moment left mine — that he was under my command on that occasion. It is hard to account for, and yet I remember that he sent me no message upon the capture of Manassas, but sent it direct to General Jackson; and besides, he failed to submit to me his official report, which he should have done. I attribu
mith, commanding the river forces, states that the fleet did not arrive at Loggy Bayou until two o'clock P. M. on the tenth of April, two days after the battle at Sabine Cross-Roads. This led to the belief that the low water had prevented the advancmade twenty miles on the seventh, fifty-seven miles on the eighth, eighteen miles on the ninth, and nine miles on the tenth of April; total, one hundred and four miles. The failure of the fleet to move up the river with ordinary expedition, together r. The column of General A. J. Smith was a partially independent command. General Sherman, in his despatch of the tenth of April, received the sixteenth, informed me that the thirty days for which he had loaned me General Smith's command would expire on the tenth of April, the day after the battle of Pleasant Hill. General Smith's instructions, which he showed me, required him to confer constantly with Admiral Porter, the approved friend of the Army of the Tennessee. His orders were dated
28, 1864. Sen. A. D. White, Vice-President Onondaga Historical Association, Syracuse: Sir: Permit me to present through you, to the Onondaga Historical Association, a map of Suffolk, Va., and the adjacent region. It is a section of a map which I had prepared while in command of the U. S. forces on the south side of the James River. It is of especial interest as presenting the theatre of operations of one wing of Lee's army, under Lieutenant-General Longstreet, Hill, and Hood, from April tenth to May third, 1863. Although Hill was not present all the time, he was operating with Longstreet, and by his orders made certain demonstrations in North Carolina, about the first of April, with the object of causing troops to be detached from Suffolk and other points. Having accomplished his mission, he discontinued the siege of Little Washington on the fifteenth, and despatched his troops to Suffolk. Longstreet himself may have joined Lee and Jackson at the crisis of Chancellorsvill
twelfth, the following telegram from the Secretary of War, dated March ninth: Order General Bragg to report to the War Department for conference. Assume yourself direct charge of the Army of Middle Tennessee. In obedience to this order I at once proceeded to Tullahoma. On my arrival I informed the Secretary of War, by a telegram, of March nineteenth, that General Bragg could not then be sent to Richmond, as he had ordered, on account of the critical condition of his family. On the tenth of April I repeated this to the President, and added, being unwell then, I afterwards became sick, and am not now able to serve in the field. General Bragg is, therefore, necessary here. On the twenty-eighth my unfitness for service in the field was reported to the Secretary of War. On the ninth of May I received, at Tullahoma, the following dispatch, of the same date, from the Secretary of War: Proceed at once to Mississippi and take chief command of the forces there — giving to those in th
e river, opposite Fort Jackson, by Lieutenant-Colonel E. Higgins, prior to his assumption of the command of the forts. This consisted of a line of schooners anchored at intervals, with bows up stream, and thoroughly chained together amidships, as well as stern and stem. The rigging, ratlines, and cable, were left to trail astern of these schooners, as an additional impediment, to tangle in the propeller wheels of the enemy. This schooner raft was seriously damaged by the wind storm on the tenth and eleventh of April, which parted the chains, scattered the schooners, and materially affected its character and effectiveness as an obstruction. In addition to the wind, the raft was also much damaged by allowing some of the fire-barges to get loose and drift against it, through the carelessness of those having them in charge. A large number of these fire-barges were tied to the banks above both forts, ready at all times to be towed into the current, and against the enemy, for the dou
