The lady mentioned some short time ago as having received heartless treatment at For tress Monroe
, by the officers, being ordered to leave by 10 minutes notice, is the wife of Lieut. Sarad
, who was ordered out in the Brooklyn
war steamer, with his corps.
He refused to go and resigned, and thus the treatment of his wife, who is the daughter of the late Capt. Alex
., G. Gordon
, of the Navy, and niece of the late Capt. Wm. L. Gordon
, of the Navy, native Virginians
, two as brave and efficient officers as the Navy could boast of.--Mrs. Smead
had four small children with her, but the noble-hearted people of Hampton
sympathized with and provided for her. A mark should be made on those brutal officers.
