Commodore Dahlgren's memoir of his son, Colonel Ulric Dahlgren, has been kindly sent us by Colonel John P. Nicholson, of Philadelphia. We have for a long time been trying to procure a copy. We propose at an early day to discuss in full the question of the authenticity of the “Dahlgren papers” raised in the book; and we will only say now that the signatures given in the memoir with a view of showing that a forgery had been committed, afford proof positive of the genuineness of the papers, as we can convince any fair minded man who will compare them with a photograph copy of the originals in our possession. But we will furnish abundant proof on these points.
