This, too, was tardily and stingily answered, while uniformed and disciplined regiments of the city of New York so promptly marched toward the field of danger that the Secretary of War publicly thanked the Governor of that State of your kindness to place under your care a box of merchandise, which you will please put in a dry place. even the city of New York was considered unsafe in the last week in June, and for that reason precious things were sent from Philadelphia as f in Baltimore in the evening in time to take the cars for Philadelphia, whence the writer went homeward reaching the City of New York when the great Draft riot, as it was called, at the middle of Fort Delaware.

But there was an immediate response in the City of New York to the utterances of leaders of the Peace Faction (of which those of Piercople said No ; and six months after the terrible three days of July in the City of New York, when no colored person's life was considered safe there, a regiment of Ne

At about this time a forgery, in the form of a proclamation by the President, calculated to inspirit the Confederates, alarm and distract the loyal people, depress the public securities, and embarrass the Government at a most critical moment, appeared in two Opposition newspapers in the city of New York. The pretended proclamation was dated the 17th of May, at the moment when Grant's march toward Richmond was temporarily checked at Spottsylvania Court-House, and the news of the failure of the Red River expedition was creating much disappointment. It declared that the campaign of the Army of the Potomac was virtually closed, and, in view of the gloomy aspect of affairs, it recommended the setting apart of an early day throughout the United States as one for fasting, humiliation, and p

Let us now turn for a moment to the consideration of the political a that hostility was everywhere conspicuous, and seemed to increase with the manifest gains of the National forces over those in rebellion. In no way was that hostility more offensively and inappropriately manifested than by the Mayor of the City of New York, C.

A large number of citizens went from the harbor of New York in the steamer Oceanus, to assist in the ceremonies. Colonel Stewart L. Woodford had charge of the exercises of the day, at the fort. When the multitude were assembled around the flag-staff, William B. Bradbury led them in singing his song of according to orders, slowly and deliberately, six hundred and sixty-two shot and shell. General Whiting was wounded in a second attack on Fort Fisher, and died a prisoner in the hospital, at Fort Columbus, Governor's Island, in the harbor of New York. General Butler addressed to him a series of pertinent questions, touching the first attack on Fort Fisher; which Whiting promptly answered. A certified copy of these questions and answers is before the writer. General Weitzel, the immediat
