while returning from an excursion down Mosquito lagoon, Lt. Budd and 4 others killed, and several more wounded or captured. Thus closed unhappily an enterprise which was probably adequate to the complete recovery of Florida, though not able to hold it against the whole power of the Confederacy. Pensacola was evacuated by Brig.-Gen. Thos. N. Jones, its Rebel commander; who burned every thing combustible in the Navy Yard, Forts McRae and Barrancas, the hospital, &c., &c., and retreated May 9-10. inland with his command. The place was immediately occupied by Corn. Porter, of the Harriet Lane, and by Gen. Arnold, commanding Fort Pickens. Another naval expedition from Port Royal, Sept. 13. under Capt. Steedman, consisting of the gunboats Paul Jones and Cimarone, with three other steamboats, visited tile Florida coast in the Autumn, shelling and silencing the Rebel batteries at the mouth of the St. John's. Gen. Brannan, with a land force of 1,575 men, with a fleet of six
ley set to work, April 30. and soon had a main dam of timber and stone constructed across the channel of the river — here 758 feet wide, 4 to 6 deep, and running at the rate of 10 miles per hour — a little below the fall, whereby the depth of water in the main channel on the rapid was increased over five feet. Eight or nine days work of many willing hands had nearly completed this dam, and had rendered the falls passable by our largest boats above them, when the impetuous current swept May 9. away a part of it; whereupon, the Admiral--(who had several of his gunboats at the head, preparing to make the passage, and might have had them taken down)--on rising next day, rode up and ordered the Lexington to be sent down before the water — by this time considerably lower — should have fallen too far; and this was obeyed with entire success. The gunboat took the chute without a balk, and then rushed like an arrow through the narrow aperture in the lower dam; pitched down the roaring
at off its assailants. Wilson, with our advance cavalry, penetrated to Spottsylvania Court House; but, being unsupported, was compelled to retire. Next day, May 9. our army cleared the Wilderness and was concentrated around Spottsylvania Court House, now held by Hill and Ewell: Warren in the center, Hancock on the right, Sed chief Quartermaster. On emerging from the Wilderness, Gen. Sheridan, with the better part of our cavalry, led by Merritt, Wilson, and Gregg, was dispatched May 9. on a raid toward Richmond. Crossing next day the North Anna, Sheridan carried the Beaverdam station on the Virginia Central, destroying the track, three trains oresolute effort was made May 7. to cut the railroad, some portion either of the North or South Carolina forces had already arrived; and, when it was renewed, May 9. the enemy had been materially strengthened. Still, the advantage of numbers was clearly on our side; and the enemy was forced to uncover the railroad, which was

ostensibly to correct a misapprehension of mine in relation to the telegram of May 9th, directing me to assume immediate command of the army in Mississippi, but actufor the time be necessary or desirable. IX. You were therefore ordered, on 9th May, to proceed at once to Mississippi and the chief command of the forces, givingwhich you were sent to the West and under which you continued to act up to the 9th May, when you were directed to repair in person to Mississippi, can only be impair object of much more of it is to show, to as little purpose, that the order of May 9th annulled no part of that of November 24, 1862. The President's interpretateply clearer than the preceding one. I maintain that, however the order of May 9th may have been intended, it dissolved practically my connection with General Br Pemberton's command to reenforce Bragg. The time alluded to seems to be the 9th of May, as your reference is to the order of that date. The United States army had

m Dalton. Our course in remaining at Dalton until the night of the 12th was based on such calculations, and the additional consideration that the single road available to the Federal army was closed at Resaca by our intrenched camp. On the 9th of May, when that camp was defended by two brigades, Major-General McPherson, a skillful engineer as well as able general, thought it too strong to be carried by assault by the Army of the Tennessee, led by him. On the 11th, when General Sherman's mar the Army of Tennessee during the campaign, were those sent and brought to it by Lieutenant-General Polk, and formed the corps of the army which he commanded. Of these, Canty's division of about three thousand effectives, reached Resaca on the 9th of May; Loring's, of five thousand, on the 11th; French's, of four thousand, joined us at Cassville on the 18th; and Quarles's brigade, of twenty-two hundred, at New Hope Church on the 26th.

hope of Lee was in heavy reinforcements from Beauregard (which I knew was futile), then it was plain that I should carry out my instructions, secure my base at Bermuda Hundred, and move as far up the James as possible, to co-operate with the Army of the Potomac in its investment of Richmond. Lieutenant-General Grant, in his report to the country, made fifteen months afterwards, gives a different account of the victories, full retreats, and rapid pursuit, of the days from the 6th to the 9th of May. It is not true that he had not determined his route on the 8th, assuming his now report to be true; for he says that on the 7th, I determined to push on, and put my whole force between him and Richmond; and orders were at once issued for a movement by his (the enemy's) right flank. This would bring General Grant to the James, below Richmond. Extract from General Grant's Official Report, pp. 6, 7. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . The Battle of the Wilderness was renewed by us at 5

ruits, and I received authority to open another sub-rendezvous at Zanesville, Ohio, whither I took the sergeant and established him. This was very handy to me, as my home was at Lancaster, Ohio, only thirty-six miles off, so that I was thus enabled to visit my friends there quite often. In the latter part of May, when at Wheeling, Virginia, on my way back from Zanesville to Pittsburg, I heard the first news of the battle of Palo Alto and Resaca de la Palma, which occurred on the 8th and 9th of May, and, in common with everybody else, felt intensely excited. That I should be on recruiting service, when my comrades were actually fighting, was intolerable, and I hurried on to my post, Pittsburg. At that time the railroad did not extend west of the Alleghanies, and all journeys were made by stage-coaches. In this instance I traveled from Zanesville to Wheeling, thence to Washington (Pennsylvania), and thence to Pittsburg by stage-coach. On reaching Pittsburg I found many private let
