or the people. At all events, the government will rule. June 13 Only one of the Williamsburg volunteers came into the department proper; and he will make his way, for he is a flatterer. He told me he had read my Wild Western scenes twice, and never was so much entertained by any other book. He went to work with hearty good-will. June 14 Col. Bledsoe has given up writing almost entirely, but he groans as much as ever. He is like a fish out of water, and unfit for office. June 15 Another clerk has been appointed; a sedate one, by the name of Shepherd, and a former pupil of the colonel's. I received several hints that the Chief of the Bureau was not at all a favorite with the Secretary, who considered him utterly unfit for the position; and that it could hardly be good policy for me to be on terms of such intimacy with him. Policy! A word I never appreciated, a thing I never knew. All I know is that Col. Bledsoe has been appointed by the President to fill an

Webster, the spy, hung. April 1 Gen. Sydney Johnston having fallen in battle, the command in the West devolved on Gen. Beauregard, whose recent defense at Island No.10 on the Mississippi, has revived his popularity. But, I repeat, he is a doomed man. April 2 Gen. Wise isieve him any more guilty than many who used to write by him; and I mean to tell the Judge Advocate so, if they give me an opportunity. April 11 The enemy are at Fredericksburg, and the Yankee papers say it will be all over with us by the 15th of June. I doubt that. April 12 The committee (Congressional) which have been investigating the Roanoke Island disaster have come to the conclusion, unanimously, and the House has voted accordingly, and with unanimity, that the blame and guilt

monstrates the fact that the Provost Marshal has interposed no effectual barriers between us and the enemy. May 29 More troops are marching into the city, and Gen. Lee has them sent out in such manner and at such times as to elude the observations of even the spies. May 30 It is said some of the enemy's mounted pickets rode through the city last night! Northern papers manifest much confidence in the near approach of the downfall of Richmond, and the end of the rebellion. The 15th of June is the utmost limit allowed us for existence. A terrific storm arose yesterday; and as our scouts report the left wing of the enemy on this side of the Chickahominy, Gen. Johnston has determined to attack it tomor-row. Thank God, we are strong enough to make the attack! May 31 Everybody is upon the tip-toe of expectation. It has been announced (in the streets ) that a battle would take place this day, and hundreds of men, women, and children repaired to the hills to listen, and p

mmediately. These, for want of discrimination, had sometimes been suffered to remain unnoticed two or three days, when they required instant action. June 11-12 Gen. Smith, the New York street commissioner, had been urged as commander-in-chief. June 13 Gen. Lee is satisfied with the present posture of affairs-and McClellan has no idea of attacking us now. He don't say what he means to do himself. June 14 The wounded soldiers bless the ladies, who nurse them unceasingly. June 15 What a change! No one now dreams of the loss of the capital. June 17 It is not yet ascertained what amount of ordnance stores we gained from the battle. June 18 Lee is quietly preparing to attack McClellan. The President, who was on the battle-field, is very cheerful. June 19 To-day so many applications were made to the Secretary himself for passports to the armies, and beyond the lines of the Confederate States, that, forgetting the revocation of his former order, he

derate orders, perhaps. A jealousy, I fear, is growing up between Confederate and State authority. This when the common enemy is thundering at all our gates! June 15 The enemy have abandoned the vicinity of Fredericksburg, falling back across the river, and probably retiring toward Alexandria, or else they have taken to thepers: The Governor of Ohio calls for 30,000 troops. The Governor of Pennsylvania calls for 50,000, to prevent the invasion of each State.

as high as $500 for a two months detail, when battles are to be fought. Mr. M. thinks he has law for all he does. A letter from Gen. D. H. Hill shows that it was his intention to bring on a battle on the 2d inst., but the enemy fled. It was only a feint below; but we may soon hear news from Hanover County. Col. Gorgas (ordnance) writes that as his men are marched out to defend the city, he can't send much ammunition to Gen. Lee! A letter from Lieut.-Gen. E. Kirby Smith, dated June 15th, shows he was at Shreveport, La., at that date. The poor militia were allowed to return to their homes to-day; but an hour after the tocsin sounded, and they were compelled to assemble and march again. This is the work of the Governor, and the Secretary of War says there was no necessity for it, as Confederate troops here now can defend the city, if attacked. July 5 This morning the wires refused to work, being cut, no doubt, in Hanover County. The presence of the enemy in t

Johnson, of Tennessee, for Vice-President. Gen. Whiting writes that supplies from abroad are coming in abundantly at Wilmington, N. C. If we can only preserve our communications with the South, I regard the campaign, if not the war, pretty nearly at an end, and Richmond safe! Grant has failed, after doing his utmost to take Richmond. He has shattered a great army to no purpose; while Lee's army is as strong as ever. This is true generalship in Lee. But Grant can get more men. June 15 Clear and cool; warm late in the day. It is rumored now that the enemy got to Westtown yesterday, some ten miles below the point on this side occupied by Butler; and to-day he is leaving, either crossing to the south side (probably to cut the railroad), or embarking in his transports for no one knows whither. So, this attempt to take Richmond is as bad a failure as any. Grant has used up nearly a.hundred thousand men — to what purpose? We are not injured, after withstanding this bl
