ch had been unanimously approved. Having reference to this working plan and its details, the secretary issued the following order: Navy Department, Richmond, July 11, 1861. Flag-officer F. Forrest.

Tenth, and Thirteenth Indiana Regiments, and the Sixteenth Ohio Regiment, with Burdsall's troop of cavalry, all in light marching order, under the command of Colonel (afterward General) W. S. Rosecrans, to do what Pegram thought impossible. They were accompanied by Colonel Lander, who was with Dumont at Philippi, See page 495. and were piloted by a young man named Hart, son of the owner of the mountain farm on which Pegram was encamped. They started at three o'clock in the morning, July 11, 1861. made a wide detour through the mountains in a heavy rain-storm, along most perilous ways, pathless, slippery, and rough, a distance of about eight miles, and at noon were on the summit of a ridge of Rich Mountain, high above Pegram's camp, and a mile from it. Just as they reached the Staunton road, near Hart's, they were furiously assailed by musket and cannon shot, bullets, grape, canister, and shells. Rosecrans supposed his movements were unknown to the insurgents. He was mistaken

at value of the bonds, which bore eight per cent. interest, payable semiannually, and declared that if the Confederacy was not defeated, they would be the best government bonds in the world, and would doubtless command a premium of fifteen or twenty per cent. At the same time he frankly told them (what came to pass) that if the schemes of the conspirators did not succeed, these bonds will not be worth a dime. --Speech of Alexander H. Stephens to a Convention of Cotton-growers at Augusta, July 11, 1861. These planters well understood the tenor of his demands. They well knew that an omission to subscribe to the loan would be constructive treason to the Confederate States Government, which would soon feel the force of a penalty, and so they subscribed, with a feeling akin to that of Englishmen in the case of the levying of ship-money by Charles the First; a proceeding that cost him his head, and his heir a kingdom. Bonds, with cotton as a basis of promises of redemption, to the amount

molestation, the Confederates relinquishing the pursuit a few miles from Carthage. The Nationals had lost in the battle thirteen killed and thirty-one wounded, all of whom were borne away by their friends. They also. lost nine horses, a battery of four cannon, and one baggage wagon. In the mean time, Captain Conrad and his company of ninety men, who were left in Neosho, had been captured by the Confederates. Report of Colonel Sigel to Brigadier-General Sweeney, dated Springfield, July 11th, 1861. The loss of the insurgents, according to their own account, was from thirty to forty killed, and from one hundred and twenty-five to one hundred and fifty wounded. Pollard's First Year of the War, page 133. It is believed that the entire loss of the Confederates was at least 800 men. They also lost forty-five men made prisoners, eighty horses, and a considerable number of shot-guns, with which Jackson's cavalry were armed. Being outnumbered by the Confederates, more than three to

Doc. 77.-the battle at Carthage, Mo. Colonel Siegel's official report. Headquarters Colonel Siegel's command, Springfield, Mo., July 11, 1861. To Brigadier-General Sweeny, Commander South-west Expedition: Having arrived with my command in Sarcoxie, twenty-two miles from Neosho, on Friday, the 28th ult., at five o'clock P. M., I learned that a body of troops under General Price, numbering from eight to nine hundred, were encamped near Pool's Prairie, which is about six miles south of Neosho. I also learned that Jackson's troops, under the command of Parsons, had encamped fifteen miles north of Lamar, on Thursday the 27th, and that they had received the first intimation of the United States troops in Springfield being on their march to the West. Concerning Rains' troops, it was reported to me that they had passed Papinsville, on Thursday evening the 27th, and were one day's march behind Jackson on the 28th. I at once resolved to march on the body of troops encamped at P
Doc. 83.-speech of A. H. Stephens. Delivered at Augusta, Ga., July 11 1861. Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen of Richmond County:--I appear before you today in the discharge of a duty assigned me by the Confederate Congress. I am rejoiced to see so many persons out — persons of all classes and ages, men as well as women. It is true, that the subjects upon which I am to address you to — day concern mostly — most directly the men, and a particular class of men at that — I mean the cotton planters — interesting all alike. The questions involved are questions which concern all alike. They involve the peace of the country — her political and social existence. All, therefore, do well to be here. We are involved in a war — the most important war that the country has ever been involved in since the revolution of our fathers — since American Independence was declared. We have had many wars since. We have had Indian wars with the different tribes; we had a small French
usiasm. In July, 1861, he covered the flag of our Union with ineffable glory at Carthage; there history wrote his New World certificate of the most eminent generalship, while the rebel banner was biting the dust. When Jackson, Price, Rains and Parsons acted the traitors to their country, we find Franz Sigel forming German regiments, and educating them defenders of this beloved land of our adoption. In reading General Sigel's report of the battle of Carthage, to General Sweeney, dated 11th July, 1861, we cannot help esteeming his modesty, for not his, but the heroic deeds of his officers, are portrayed with justice and impartiality. In Springfield we do not admire Franz Sigel as the commander only, nay, he shines especially as a man; for, with the greatest self-sacrifice, he there cared for the wives and children of those Union men who were absent and in the ranks of the Federal army. Gentlemen, to sustain Franz Sigel in his patriotic work; to procure for him from that Administrati
