riefly, but vividly, a letter from his room-mate, General Fitz John Porter, to the speaker: 119 West 47TH street, New Yorhing you success in your efforts, I am, Yours truly, F. J. Porter. It was no small honor to be first in a class that nizer of the army of Egypt, after the Civil War), General Fitz John Porter, General Gordon Granger, Generals E. Kirby Smith,y had been thrown against McClellan's right, held by Fitz John Porter, and all had failed; and we soon knew why. He had twe now reached the high plateau in rear of the centre of General Porter's position, his line having been completely cut in twoinguished generals. Among these were W. F. Smith and Fitz John Porter. In 1844, when I returned to the Academy, and was llow as Captain Cowper Coles, R. N., ought not to take Admiral Porter's statement and reports au picd de lettre, and he oughe of the word a test for the monitor Monadnock (over which Porter makes such sounding brags), or of any other monitor or iro

fight upon the water, but the task was superhuman. We were not fighting Spaniards then, but men of our own blood, the odds against us were too great. In the United States Home Squadron and Potomac Flotilla, alone, there were ninety-nine ships. The Federal vessels in our western rivers were almost without number. The Confederate fighting ships, one after another, were destroyed, many of them as they were nearing completion. So successfully were we building ships at New Orleans that Admiral Porter in his naval history expresses the opinion that if Farragut had been three months later we should have driven the Federal fleets North, raised the blockade and secured from European governments recognition of the independence of the Confederacy. In another branch of naval warfare the genius of Confederate naval officers was similarly conspicuous. They developed the use of the torpedo to an extent never before dreamed of More than forty United States vessels were badly injured or tota

t would have been impossible to place any obstacle in the way to prevent our return. The danger was all in front; not behind us. A mile or so on one side was the Pamunkey, an impassible river; within six miles on the other were the camps of Fitz John Porter and a division of cavalry. A man of mediocrity would have been satisfied with what he had done; to have gone back would have been a grand anti-climax to such a beginning. But if he had had no choice between going back or going on there woule for the infantry to overtake him, and as the cavalry did not move without us, it was impossible for them to overtake him. The moon was shining brightly, making any kind of movement for ourselves or the enemy as easy as in the day light. Fitz John Porter regrets, That when General Cook did pursue he should have tied his legs with the infantry command. About day light we reached the Chickahominy. Stuart had expected to ford it, but is was overflowing. He did not appear in the slightest deg
