or some months for artillery service, had been withdrawn from the forts on the south side of the Potomac; while he was at this time under orders from McClellan to detail 3 regiments to join divisions on their way to the Peninsula, and another for service at Budd's Ferry; while a further order directed him to send 4,000 men to Manassas and Warrenton to relieve Gen. Sumner, so as to enable him to embark for Yorktown. Upon the report of Gens. Hitchcock and Thomas, the President gave orders April 3. that either McDowell's or Sumner's corps should remain in front of Washington until otherwise directed. Gen. McClellan, from his camp in front of Yorktown, remonstrated; April 5. saying: I am now of the opinion that I shall have to fight all the available force of the Rebels not far from here. Do not force me to do so with diminished numbers; but, whatever your decision may be, I will leave nothing undone to obtain success. If you cannot leave me the whole of the 1st corps, I u
of Cal., voted Yea. The bill thus enacted was approved by the President, March 13th, 1862. Gen. Wilson, upon evidence that the above act was inadequate to restrain the negro-catching propensitives of some officers in the service, proposed April 3. further action to the same end; and the Senate considered April 14. his resolution of inquiry. Mr. Grimes, of Iowa, in supporting it made a statement as follows: In the month of February last, an officer of the 3d regiment of Iowa infanf Maine, and further opposed by Messrs. Wright (Union), of Ind., Willey, of West Va.

under whose auspices, in conjunction with Com. Dupont, the contemplated attack was now to be made. Halleck's sending of Foster into Hunter's department without notice to the latter has not been explained. Our preparations for this attack were made, so far as possible, at Hilton Head: the iron-clads, so fast as ready, slipping quietly, one by one, to their appointed rendezvous in the mouth of the North Edisto river, half way to Charleston harbor; where they were all finally assembled, April 3. awaiting the conditions of wind and tide deemed most favorable. A calm, clear night, April 5. following a full moon, proffered the awaited conjuncture; and Com. Dupont steamed April 6. in full force up to the harbor bar; shifting there his pennant from the gunboat James Adger to the stately, mailed Ironsides, in which he proposed to direct and share in the bombardment. By 9 A. M. next day, his fleet had all crossed the bar, and was in line along the east shore of Morris island, hea

Returning to Ohio, where he had already been suggested as the Democratic candidate for Governor in the canvass of that year, he speedily engaged in a popular canvass of the War and the Federal Administration, in a spirit of sweeping hostility to both. Gen. Burnside, who had just been transferred to and placed in command of the military department including Ohio, put forth April 3. a general order, wherein he proclaimed that henceforth All persons found within our lines who commit acts for the benefit of the enemies of our country will be tried as spies or traitors, and, if convicted, will suffer death. * * * The habit of declaring sympathies for the enemy will not be allowed in this department. Persons committing such offenses will be at once arrested, with a view to being tried, as above stated, or sent beyond our lines into the lines of their friends. It mus
l to the success of the undertaking. One hospital-ship was sunk and lost in getting up. As there was but 6 feet water in the channel at the fall, while our vessels drew from 7 1/2 to 10 feet, it is not surprising that 7 or 8 days March 26 to April 3. were spent in getting over those vessels that went higher. During the halt here, Gen. Warner, with four brigades of Smith's corps, surprised March 21 a Rebel post at Henderson's hill, 21 miles westward, capturing 4 guns, 250 men, and 200 hoor to assist or to support each other. Banks's 40,000 men were already reduced, though scarcely a shot had been fired, to about 20,000. Part of these had already been pushed on, 80 miles farther, to Red river region. Natchitoches April 2-3.--the enemy skirmishing sharply at intervals with our van, but making no stubborn resistance. Gen. A. L. Lee, scouting in advance to Pleasant Hill, 36 miles farther, found the enemy in force; while some of Price's men, here taken prisoners, report
h's division of Gen. Granger's corps, while relieving guard, blundered into the Rebel lines, and were regarded as the head of an assaulting column; provoking a sally, whereby our skirmishers and working parties were hurled back, with some loss; but the enemy, advancing too far, were repelled in turn; whereupon, the artillery on both sides suddenly reopened and kept firing till daylight to little purpose. Still, the siege was steadily pressed forward; and, the investment being completed, April 3. the result was no longer doubtful: our troops having already built an earthwork and mounted siege-guns within 200 yards of the Fort Our losses were mainly from shells: many of them thrown by batteries whose location was concealed, and which could not, in consequence, be silenced. One of these shells killed or wounded 15 men; another 12. Our fleet, unable otherwise to get within effective distance of the fort, crossed the bar and engaged the Rebel fleet, which included several iron-cla
hastening after their comrades who had already filed hurriedly and dolefully out of the opposite portals of Richmond. At length, our musicians having played the soldiers to sleep, had themselves sunk also to rest, when, about 2 A. M., Monday, April 3. Weitzel, still alert, was startled by the sound of explosions. They were fewer, nearer, and heavier, than the dull, continuous booming of cannon in the south, which had been audible throughout the previous morning; and they evidently claimis advance had swept down that road nearly to Burkesville, scattering by the way such portions of the Rebel cavalry as had fled west-ward from their discomfiture at Five Forks. At Deep creek, a considerable force of infantry was encountered, April 3. and ultimately driven by the 5th corps. Concentrating at Jetersville, Sheridan had here planted him-self across the railroad, intrenched his infantry, and, supported by his cavalry, prepared to stop Lee's entire force, until Grant and Meade, p
Johnston, with this addition: Transportation and subsistence to be furnished at public cost for the officers and men, after surrender, to the nearest practicable point to their homes. Com. Farrand, at the same time and on the same terms, surrendered to Rear-Admiral Thatcher the twelve Rebel gunboats blockaded in the Tombigbee river, with 20 officers and 110 others. Mr. Jefferson Davis, with his staff and civilian associates, having journeyed by rail from Richmond to Danville, April 3. he there halted, and set up his Government; issuing April 5. thence a stirring proclamation, designed to inspirit the Confederates to a determined prosecution of the contest; saying: We have now entered upon a new phase of the struggle. Relieved from the necessity of guarding particular points, our army will be free to move from point to point to strike the enemy in detail far from his base. Let us but will it, and we are free.
