Because the forces under me in July, 1863, were much less than those under General Pemberton in June, 1862. 3. Because in July, 1863, I had only 1184 infantry on the whole of James Island; whereas, in order to guard the defensive lines properly, I should have had a force of at least 8000 men there. General Gillmore says, p. 12: A land attack upon Charleston was not even discussed at any of General Gillmore had at that time, according to his own estimate, 11,000 men, whom he might have easily concentrated against any special point. Supposing that point to have been the James Island lines, the weak Confederate force there stationed: 1184 infantry, would have had to withstand an overwhelming assault. Transportation was altogether inadequate, and all effort made to reenforce any of the above-named General Quincy A. Gillmore. From a photograph. localities would have necessarily
ates. He hoped and believed they all would enter into such a compact. If they would not, he would be ready to join with any States that would. But, as the compact was to be voluntary, it is in vain for the Eastern States to insist on what the Southern States will never agree to. Madison Papers, pp. 1081, 1082. Madison, while inclining to a strong government, said: In the case of a union of people under one Constitution, the nature of the pact has always been understood, etc. Ibid., p. 1184. Hamilton, in the Federalist, repeatedly speaks of the new government as a confederate republic and a confederacy, and calls the Constitution a compact. See especially Nos. IX and LXXXV. General Washington—who was not only the first President under the new Constitution, but who had presided over the convention that drew it up—in letters written soon after the adjournment of that body to friends in various states, referred to the Constitution as a compact or treaty, and repeatedly
y the abandonment of Cole's Island; secondly, by Morris Island, also left exposed by yielding Cole's Island; thirdly, by Sullivan's, via Long Island. The first point, being regarded as vital to the defence of the harbor and city, was guarded by 1184 infantry, 1569 artillery, and 153 cavalry, or 2906 men of all arms, instead of the force estimated heretofore, to wit, 11,500; the second point was occupied by 612 infantry, 289 artillerists, and 261 cavalry, or 1162 men, in lieu of about 3000 menon.—From the best sources of information the enemy's force consisted of four brigades, one of which landed on James Island, besides the fleet-probably in all, say, 10,000 men. To the 8th Question.—My force of infantry was in all 2462 effective: 1184 on James Island, 612 on Morris Island, and 204 on Sullivan's; and 462 in Charleston. To the 9th Question.—I do not know that a better disposition could have been made; for, had we concentrated on Morris Island, the enemy would at once have turn<
France was not paved in the twelfth century, for Rigord, the physician and historian of Philip 11., relates that the king, standing one day at a window of his palace near the Seine, and observing that the carriages which passed threw up the dirt in such a manner that it produced a most offensive stench, his majesty resolved to remedy this intolerable nuisance by causing the streets to be paved, which was accordingly done. The orders for this purpose were issued by the government in the year 1184, and upon that occasion, it is said, the name of the city, which was then called Lutetia, on account of its dirtiness, was changed to that of Paris. In 1641, the streets in many quartiers of Paris were not yet paved. Dijon, at that time reckoned one of the most beautiful cities of France, had paved streets as early as 1391; and it is remarked by historians that after this period dangerous diseases, such as dysentery, spotted fever, and others, became less frequent in that city.

an, hitherto averse to it, maintained it in the Senate. The bill passed after a night session, at 6.22 Sunday morning, February 17. Sumner was not present to give his vote, having left the Senate at midnight, not deeming it important to remain merely to swell the large and ascertained majority which the bill was destined to receive. His absence was a subject of comment in subsequent debates. Feb 19, 1867, Congressional Globe, p. 1563; Jan. 21 and Feb. 10, 1870, Globe, pp. 638, 640, 1182-1184; Works, vol. XI. p. 105; vol. XIII. pp. 303-330. He was ill and worn out, and the result had been determined by a caucus of senators, who comprehended a large majority of the Senate. The bill passed the House with slight modifications, and was vetoed by the President. It was carried over the veto, and at this stage Sumner's vote was recorded in its favor. An entire race, recently in slavery, was thus at one stroke admitted to the suffrage in the reconstructed States. Afterwards there

This regiment was organized at Montgomery, November, 1861, and armed by private enterprise. It first served in Mobile; from there it was ordered to Corinth and reached Tennessee in time for the battle of Shiloh, where it suffered severe loss. It fought at Munfordville, September 14 to 16, 1862; at Perryville, October 8th, and at Murfreesboro, December 31 to Jan
