assistance. Can you aid me in this matter to carry out the peremptory order of the President? Unfortunately, Halleck's army was broken up; he was sending reenforcements to Curtis and Buell, and was being asked to send 25,000 men to McClellan. The Confederates, however, were able to send 10,000 men to the support of the defenders. Finally the Arkansas came out of the Yazoo and put an end to the operations, and the two fleets turned their backs on each other and on Vicksburg, and on the 26th of July, abandoning the canal, the troops landed once more at Baton Rouge. Overwork, malaria, and scurvy, the result of privation, had done their work on Williams's men; of the 3200 men that went up the river barely 800 came back fit for duty.

Morning found his pursuers closing in from all directions. Morgan, with about half his men, eluded the net. Of these many were drowned, but about three hundred escaped across the river. All the rest were killed or captured. About 120 were killed and wounded, and 700 captured. After nearly reaching the West Virginia shore Morgan himself returned, and with the remnant made for Pennsylvania, hotly pursued, and finally surrendered on the 26th of July, near Beaver Creek, with 364 officers and men. Morgan was confined in the State Penitentiary at Columbus, Ohio, until November 26th, when he made his escape by tunneling. Later on he commanded in south-western Virginia. After another disastrous raid into Kentucky, he was killed at Greenville, Tennessee, on the 4th of September, 1864.--editors.
