ates had fitted out at this port two river-steamers, which they had surrounded with walls constructed of bales of cotton. About the 20th of January, taking advantage of a dead calm, these steamers boldly put out to sea to attack the Federal ships, which the absence of wind had doomed to immobility; a few raking shots were sufficient to compel them to surrender. But, being unable to bring them back into port in consequence of their draft of water, they were obliged to set them on fire on the 23d, in order to keep them from the steamships that Commodore Bell had sent for the purpose of recapturing them. Two months later, as we will show hereafter when speaking of the military operations in Louisiana, one of the ships belonging to the squadron, the Diana, was captured by the Confederates in the waters of Bayou Teche. The month of April bought on still further misfortunes. On the 7th a river-steamer, the Barrataria, which the Federals had fitted out as a guard-ship to watch the wa

On receipt of Roddy's despatches he had ordered Forrest to hasten to the aid of the latter with his whole brigade. The order, which was forwarded on the 23d, was promptly executed: a regiment of this brigade, sent direct toward Tuscumbia, arrives at Bainbridge on the 27th, where it crosses the Tennessee, while on the saetached from Tullahoma, and also Loring, who, with his six thousand soldiers, had been wandering about since the battle of Champion's Hill. Maxey joined him on the 23d. Finally, on the 3d of June, Breckinridge's division and Evans' brigade swelled the total amount of Johnston's army to twenty-seven thousand men, three thousand o

defence he had hitherto met only with success. The proof of this will be found in the letter he wrote to Mr. Davis on the 23d, just as he was ordering his army to cross the Potomac. He was asking him earnestly to send on the last available man thaach the White House and disturb the deliberations of the Federal government. Rodes arrived on the 22d, and Johnson on the 23d, at Greencastle, whilst Jenkins, preceding them, entered Chambersburg, and Early, bearing to the right, occupied Cavetown at the foot of South Mountain. It was on this same day, the 23d, that Lee, being apprised of Pleasonton's retreat, issued marching orders to his other two army corps. Hill, crossing the Potomac first, reached Chambersburg on the 27th; Longstreetormation to the enemy; so that Ewell's movement upon Hagerstown, which was executed on the 22d, was known to Hooker on the 23d, and on the 25th the latter was fully informed of the passage of the Potomac by Hill's corps at Shepherdstown.

The Confederates, being taken by surprise, cannot concentrated forces of Bragg and Longstreet were inflicting on Rosecrans a signal defeat. Hardly had the first details of the battle of Chickamauga become known than, on the 23d, Halleck was ordering Meade to detach from his army and despatch to Washington the Eleventh and Twelfth corps with their artillery: Hooker was to command them and gcompelling the most numerous to follow the narrower and winding ones. The movement was to commence on the 24th, but a heavy rain having soaked all the roads on the 23d, it was definitively fixed for the 26th of November. After a fine and late autumn the bad weather at last gives unmistakable signs of its approach. Meade believ
