ass, then our Envoy at Paris, and a prospective candidate for President, resisted and defeated the accession of our Government to this most righteous and necessary increase of power to the international police of the ocean, and earned thereby the qualified approbation of the Slave Power; as was evinced in the Presidential election of 1848. A similar treaty was now negotiated between the United States and Great Britain; and a bill designed to give effect to its provisions was reported June 12, 1862. to the Senate by Mr. Sumner, considered, and passed: June 16. Yeas 34; Nays 4. The House concurred; July 7. and the bill became a law. July 11. The first proposition looking to a repeal of the Fugitive Slave act of 1850 by the XXXVIIth Congress was made Dec. 26, 1861. by Mr. Howe, of Wisconsin, to the Senate; whereby it was read twice, referred to the Judiciary Committee, and reported Feb. 11, 1862. against by Mr. Ten Eyck, of New Jersey.

kship in his department, and there she remained as long as she chose to stay in office, so far as I know. I saw the boys from time to time. They called to see me with their mother and they seemed to be very gentlemanly and bright. I had one other occasion, while in New Orleans, to administer capital punishment. I certainly had no desertions reported to me that required it. The circumstances of this case are peculiar enough for narration. For something over a week prior to the 12th of June, 1862, there had been continued complaint made at my headquarters of burglaries and robberies committed in the night time in many houses and in many parts of the city. No clew was brought to me by which the offenders could be ascertained, and it became a very annoying scandal and disgrace. On the morning of the 12th I said at mess table: This system of night thieveries must be put an end to, and I am going to attend to nothing else, routine duty excepted, until it is done.

Major-General Halleck: A spy whom I sent some days ago to Okolona has just returned. The enemy is scattered along the whole road from Columbus to Tupelo, sixteen miles below Guntown. They are disorganized, mutinous, and starving. He reports the woods full of deserters belonging to the northern counties of Mississippi. Nearly the whole of the Tennessee, Arkansas, and Kentucky troops have left. A large rear guard has been strung along perpendicular to the road for twenty miles, dr
great gallantry and efficiency, which requires that I should make particular mention of them, and which, I trust, will receive the particular notice of the President as soon as possible.

Captain: I have the honor to submit a succinct report of the operations of this brigade, under my command, from the morning of the twenty-ninth June to the first July, inclusive: For several days previous to the twenty-ninth June, my command had been kept day and night under arms, prepared, at a moment's notice, to move in cooperation with the operations of our army on the other side of the Chickahominy. On the night of the twenty-eighth, the men were required t
trength to about one hundred and five thousand. So long as there remained the slightest hope of additional soldiers, it was impossible to withdraw all of the army from the York side of the Peninsula, and it remained divided. That was a brilliant initial stroke of the Confederate general when he sent his famous cavalry leader, J. E. B. Stuart, with about twelve hundred Virginia troopers, to encircle the army of McClellan. Veiling his intentions with the utmost secrecy, Stuart started June 12, 1862, in the direction of Fredericksburg as if to reenforce Stonewall Jackson. The first night he bivouacked in the pine woods of Hanover. No fires were kindled, and when the morning dawned, his men swung upon their mounts without the customary bugle-call of Boots and saddles. Turning to the east, he surprised and captured a Federal picket; swinging around a corner of the road, he The fleet that fed the army The abandoned base White House, Virginia, June 27, 1862.-Up the James

ont's army. And Colonel Kirkland, of North Carolina, behaved as handsomely near Winchester as any man in our army, leading his regiment, and taking a stone wall from the Yankees; he is a splendid fellow. That night I addressed a letter to General Jackson, telling him of the difficulties which surrounded me, and of what Ashby had said to me of his troubles from the want of organization in his command, in response to which I have the following communication: near Mount Meridian, June 12th, 1862. Colonel T. T. Munford, Commanding Cavalry, Valley District: Colonel — I congratulate you upon your early reoccupation of Harrisonburg. I have directed the Inspector-General to organize the cavalry now under Major Funsten, and hope it will soon be of service to you. You had better order forward Chew's battery and your train in time to pass Mount Crawford before 12 o'clock M. to-morrow. In the morning I trust that I will make a timely move for the Valley pike, and expect to encamp t

n, from the high hills on the Cross-Keys side of the river, while Ewell was to turn on Fremont. Going up the road some miles we met General Ewell, who said to the Colonel, Colonel, you must fix a Bucktail to your colors to-day in honor of the gallantry of your regiment day before yesterday. So the Bucktail was tied at the end of the lance, and some days after, when we all had leisure, the General issued the following order: [General order no. 30.]Headquarters Ewell's division, June 12th, 1862. In commendation of the gallant conduct of the First Maryland regiment on the 6th June inst., when led by Colonel Bradley T. Johnson, they drove back with loss the Pennsylvania Bucktail Rifles, in the engagement near Harrisonburg, Rockingham county, Virginia, authority is given to have one of the captured Bucktails, (the insignia of the Federal regiment,) appended to the color staff of the First Maryland regiment.
