son, with whose force that of General Ewell had united, moved with such rapidity as to surprise the enemy, and Ewell, who was in advance, captured most of the troops at Front Royal, and pressed directly on to Winchester, while Jackson, turning across to the road from Strasburg, struck the main column of the enemy in flank and drove it routed back to Strasburg. The pursuit was comtinued to Winchester, and the enemy, under their commander in chief, General Banks, fled across the Potomac into Maryland. Two thousand prisoners were taken in the pursuit. General Banks in his report says, There never were more grateful hearts in the same number of men, than when, at mid-day on the 26th, we stood on the opposite shore. When the news of the attack on Front Royal, on May 23d, reached General Geary, charged with the protection of the Manassas Gap Railroad, he immediately moved to Manassas Junction. At the same time, his troops, hearing the most extravagant stories, burned their tents and de

After Sharpsburg, it was so small that it was distributed among some other brigades in Longstreet's corps. After minute inquiry, General Early concludes that the whole command that came from the Valley, including the artillery, the regiment of cavalry, and the Maryland regiment and a battery, then known as The Maryland line, could not have exceeded 8,000 men. In this, General Early does not include either Lawton's brigade or the two brigades with Whiting, and reaches the conclusion that the whole force received by General Lee was about 23,000—about 30,000 less than your estimate. Taking the number given by General Early as the entire reenforcement received by General Lee after the battle of Seven Pines and before the commencement of the seven days battles—which those who know his extreme accuracy and

Thus, it was houmber of horses and arms. Meantime General Ewell, with the advance of his corps, had entered Maryland. Jenkins, with his cavalry, penerated as far as Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. As these demonstrshould he attempt to cross the Potomac. In that event General Stuart was directed to move into Maryland, crossing the Potomac east or west of the Blue Ridge, as in his judgment should seem best, and omac was so much swollen by the rains that had fallen almost incessantly since our army entered Maryland, as to be unfordable.

The insertion of my name with those others, honorable gentlemen, as inciting and encouraging these acts, served as an exhibition of the malignant spirit with which justice was administered by the authorities in Washington at that time. The case of Mrs. Surratt, at whose house some of these persons had boarded, awakened much sympathy. She was spoken of by her counsel, Reverdy Johnson of Maryland, as a devout Christian, ever kind, affectionate, and charitable, which was confirmed by evidence and uncontradicted. On the day of the execution her daughter, who was quite a devoted and affectionate person, sought to obtain an audience with President Johnson to implore at least a brief suspension of the sentence of her mother. She was obstructed and prevented from seeing the President by ex-Senator Preston King of New York and Senator James H. Lane of Kansas, who were reported to have be

It now amounted to ten thousand infantry and about two thousand cavalry, having been joined by Breckinridge and by Colonel Bradley T. Johnson, with a battalion of Maryland cavalry. The advance was rapid. Railroad bridges were burned, the track destroyed, and stores captured. The Potomac was crossed on June 5th and 6th, and the move was made through the gaps of South Mountain to the north of Maryland Heights, wh, yet in the anguished expressions of their features while narrating their misfortunes, there was a mute appeal to every manly sentiment of my bosom for retribution, which I could no longer withstand.
