ates forces developed an intention of moving on the Confederate lines by way of the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers, and early in February carried out the design. This danger was one that General Johnston had foreseen, and had attempted to provide against. While this is abundantly evinced even in the allusions in his correspondence given herein to illustrate other aspects of the campaign, it will not be amiss to add some brief extracts bearing directly on this subject. As early as October 27, 1861, he wrote the adjutant-general, pointing out the three lines in Kentucky on which the enemy seem to design to operate: first, against Zollicoffer; second, by the Louisville & Nashville Railroad; and the other against Polk, and will perhaps endeavor to use the Tennessee in aid of the movement. For some time after this the rivers were too low to be used by the heavy armored flotilla; and the movements of the enemy seemed to be directed from South Carrollton against Clarksville as the o

ined by the Government to fit out a naval expedition against Port Royal under command of Flag Officer Dupont, reinforced by an Army corps under General T. W. Sherman. Notwithstanding that the greatest precautions were taken to keep the proposed expedition a secret, the Confederates ascertained that a movement against Port Royal was on foot, and with their accustomed energy prepared to receive it by mounting all the guns they could collect, with a proper force to man them. By the 27th October, 1861, all the ships of war, transports for troops, and supply vessels had assembled at Hampton Roads, presenting a formidable appearance. They numbered fifty sail, not including twenty-five coal vessels which had sailed the day previous. Never before in our history had any officer command of so large a fleet. The weather had been unpleasant for some time, but now gave promise of a change for the better; and when on the 29th the signal went up from the flag-ship Wabash--underway to ge

Leesburg, Oct. 27, 1861. Breakfast was over. The morning hours were fast rolling towards midday. The little stock of literature Manassas afforded was exhausted. Time was growing irksome, when some one proposed a trip to Leesburg, and the proposition met with a hearty approval from a party of "gentlemen of the press," who make it their business to cater for the reading public at the seat of war. The next question was to obtain passports. We found the Provost Marshal badly worried by a press of business, and in exceedingly ill humor.--His usual blandness and equanimity had been entirely upset. One modest request for his signature met with a flat denial. Here was a dilemma. "Fortune favors the brave" is an old adage, and we determined to act upon it, and to trust to luck and to our kind friends in the army to deliver us from all difficulty. The road was long and wearisome, but for thirty miles, or thereabouts, we rode without trouble. That night we reached our point of
