o a single ration of beef and a half ration of corn a day, the latter being parched, and not issued as meal. had determined to take the offensive. The Fishing Creek, which lay between the forces of Thomas and Schoepf, was so swollen by the rain that he hoped to strike the Nationals before these divisions could unite. He called a council of war on the evening of the 18th, when it was unanimously agreed to make the attack. Correspondence of the Louisville Courier, by an eye-witness, January 25th, 1862. Zollicoffer was immediately ordered to lead the column. He started at midnight, Carroll's Brigade following his. Zollicoffer's Brigade was composed of the Fifteenth Mississippi, and the Tennessee regiments of Colonels Cummings, Battle, and Stanton, marching in the order here named, with four guns commanded by Captain Rutledge, immediately in the rear of the Mississippians. Carroll's troops were composed of the Tennessee regiments of Colonels Newman, Murray, and Powell, with two g
al Lamon had forbidden Members of Congress access to the prison without his written permission. Messrs. Powell, of Kentucky, Pearce, of Maryland, and Carlile, of Virginia, opposed the resolve; but it was warmly supported and passed: Jan. 14, 1862. Yeas 31; Nays 4. A similar resolve had already Dec. 9, 1861. been submitted to the House. No action was taken, however, upon this, nor upon the Senate's kindred measure; because the President, through Secretary Seward, addressed Jan. 25, 1862. an order to Marshal Lamon, directing limn not to receive into custody any persons caught up as fugitives from Slavery, but to discharge, ten days there-after, all such persons now in his jail. This put a stop to one of the most flagrant and glaring iniquities habitually perpetrated in a Christian and civilized community. A bill reported March 23, 1864. by Mr. Sumner, from the Select Committee on Slavery and Freedom, to prohibit the holding of slaves on National vessels, and also

It was recruited at Kenton in the fall of 1861, leaving the State January 25, 1862, and proceeding to West Virginia, where it was assigned, in March, to Schenck's Brigade. It was engaged, May 8th, at McDowell, Va., with a loss of 6 killed, 50 wounded, and 1 missing. It fought at Manassas in Milroy's Independent Brigade, o
illing but weary hand, so excuse the confused parts of the letter. The Ninth Ohio, which, some way, I came very near omitting, deserves especial praise. Colonel McCook rushed his men up just about the time the Tenth Indiana was giving ground. And the Indiana boys say the Ninth fought like tigers, and are just such backers as they would always like to have. --Cincinnati Commercial. Secession Narratives. Louisville (Nashville) courier account. Livingston, Overton Co., Tenn., January 25, 1862. As every thing concerning the contest in Kentucky is of peculiar interest to you and to the readers of your paper, I propose giving you some account of the battle of Fishing Creek, fought in Wayne County, on the Upper Cumberland, on Sunday, the nineteenth day of this month. It will be remembered that some two months ago, Brig.-Gen. Zollicoffer moved with a portion of his command to Mill Springs, on the southern bank of the Cumberland River, and soon after advanced across .to Camp
Doc. 19.-Secretary Seward's order. Department of State, Washington, January 25, 1862. To Ward H. Lamon, Marshal of the District of Columbia: Sir: The President of the United States being satisfied that the following instructions contravene no law in force in this District, and that they can be executed without awaiting for legislation by Congress, I am directed by him to convey them to you: As Marshal of the District of Columbia you will not receive into custody any persons claimed to be held to service or labor within the District or elsewhere, and not charged with any crime or misdemeanor, unless upon arrest or commitment, pursuant to law, as fugitives from such service or labor; and you will not retain any such fugitives in custody beyond a period of thirty days from their arrest and commitment, unless by special order of competent civil authority. You will forthwith cause publication to be made of this order, and at the expiration of ten days therefrom you will app
e of fancy arms to troops about to be mustered into the service of the United States was highly undesirable. By the end of December, 1861, however, it was found that the capacity of the various arsenals of the Government was not equal to the great output necessary, and that the practice of buying by contract had to be recognized to a great extent. The States had already sent troops for service armed with numerous patterns of rifles, and it was impracticable to rearm all of them. On January 25, 1862, the chief of ordnance reported to Secretary Stanton that, under the administration of his predecessor, Secretary Cameron, it had been tentatively decided to have, if possible, but one caliber of rifles, and to cause the necessary changes to be made to accomplish this. It was found that there were in the arsenals but ten thousand rifles of .58-inch caliber, the standard size deemed best for the military service, and it was decided to ream up to that size all arms of less caliber. The
raphed you accordingly. In reply you asked for orders. As well as I am able to recollect the details of an affair so long past, and which, until the present moment, I have had no occasion to recall, this, General, is a correct statement of the circumstances of your transfer from the Army of the Potomac to the Army of West Tennessee and Kentucky. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, Roger A. Pryor. Genl. G. T. Beauregard. Centreville, Va., Jan. 25th, 1862. Dear General,—Yours just received; I will be on hand as directed. I have received a telegram from Pryor which says I must go temporarily to Columbus. Much fear is entertained of the Mississippi Valley. I have authorized him to say Yes. I will be back here as soon as possible. I will not leave until you are back. Yours, etc., G. T. Beauregard.
