urtis's right flank. Here, again, the want of order among the Confederate troops produced disastrous results, and so slow and embarrassed was their march that the enemy got notice of it in time to make his dispositions accordingly. Van Dorn had avoided his intrenchments, however, and fought him on fairer terms, though Curtis, posted on rugged and wooded hills, still held the stronger ground. The battle of Elkhorn, or Pea Ridge, as the Federals call it, began early on the morning of March 5, 1862. The opposing armies were nearly equal in strength. Van Dorn says he had 14,000 men engaged, and Curtis puts his force at about 10,000 men and forty-nine guns. The two corps of the Confederate army were widely separated; Curtis's divisions fought back to back, and readily reinforced each other. Van Dorn, with Price's corps, encountered Carr's division, which advanced to meet it, but was driven back steadily and with heavy loss. In the mean time, McCulloch's corps met a division u

The churches were filled to overflowing, with, I trust, heart-worshippers, and I believe that God, in his great mercy, will direct our Government and our army. March 4th, 1862. In statu quo as far as our armies are concerned. The Nashville, a Confederate steamer, that has been watched by eight Federal war vessels, came into port the other day, at Beaufort, North Carolina, after many hairbreadth escapes, bringing a rich burden. Ash-Wednesday, March 5, 1862. This morning Dr. Wilmer gave us a delightful sermon at St. Paul's. He will be consecrated to-morrow Bishop of Alabama. To-night Bishop Elliott of Georgia preached for us, on the power of thought for good or evil. I do admire him so much in every respect. March 6th, 1862. To-day we saw Bishop Wilmer consecrated-Bishop Meade presiding, Bishops Johns and Elliott assisting. The services were very imposing, but the congregation was grieved by the appearance of Bishop Meade;

of good's in store for you; The eagle cowering, trembling, hides, The mocking-bird on high abides; With grateful heart she pours her song, The evergreen the leaves among, My dream unfolds a future bright-- The mocking-bird still soars in light. Take courage, then, nor shrink in fear; Your wives, your children, homes are dear The God of nations be your trust; The High, the Holy One and Just. He setteth up and pulleth down, And each in turn abide his frown; The eagle here in cowering fear, Betrays a want of conscience clear. Take courage, friends, and as you see The mocking-bird so joyous, free, Still hope that God is on our side, And let your trust in him abide. He speaks, and at his sovereign will, The storm is laid, the sea is still; He weighs the cause ‘tween man and man, And clasps the nation with a span. Then go to him with praying heart, Oh! be but faithful on your part, To God and to yourselves be true, Your battles he will fight for you. East Baton Rouge, March 5, 1862. L. F

ast. This was the crowning evidence of the sorrow of true Marylanders for the wrongs inflicted on citizens of Massachusetts in their commercial capital, and a desire to obliterate the feelings occasioned by them. Only a few months after the occurrence, and when the Union men of the State had obtained partial control of the public affairs of the Commonwealth, the Legislature took steps December, 1861. to wipe out, as they expressed it, the foul blot of the Baltimore riot; and on the 5th of March, 1862, the General Assembly appropriated seven thousand dollars, to be disbursed, under the direction of the Governor of Massachusetts, for the relief of the families of those who were then injured. To-day Massachusetts and Maryland cordially embrace each other as loving sisters in the great family of the Nation. Through New York the march [of Massachusetts troops] was triumphal, said Governor Andrew. It was so. The patriotism of the people of that great city and of the State had been

ufficient number of cars and engines cannot be had. It is evident that a large quantity of it must be sacrificed, or your instructions not observed. I shall adhere to them as closely as possible. In conversation with you, and before the cabinet, I did not exaggerate the difficulties of marching in this region. The suffering and sickness which would be produced can hardly be exaggerated. Most respectfully, Your obedient servant, J. E. Johnston, General. Headquarters, Centreville, March 5, 1862. To His Excellency. Mr. President: In connection with one of the subjects of my letter of the 1st inst., I respectfully submit herewith a handbill said to be circulating in our camps. Several such recruiting advertisements have been pointed out to me in the newspapers. It is said that such cases are common — that many officers profess to have letters from the Honorable Secretary of War authorizing them to raise troops endowed with special privileges, which would render them useless
Doc. 78.-Governor Pickens' proclamation calling for troops and threatening conscription. State of South-Carolina, headquarters, March 5, 1862. The President of the confederate States, through the Secretary of War, has called on me, as Governor of South-Carolina, to furnish five more regiments for and during the war. Now, then, under this requisition, I do hereby call for men to come forward as volunteers, individually and separately, or by companies now formed, of not less than sixty-eight aggregate to each company, and to be organized according to the principles laid down in the resolutions of the Council, hereunto attached. Tenders of service will be made in writing to the Adjutant-General's office, in Columbia. Those volunteering as individuals will be formed into companies as soon as possible, the officers to be appointed by the Governor and Council. The Secretary of War, in his requisition, says that each soldier will receive a bounty of fifty dollars when the
t of my admiration for his excellent character and high soldierly qualities. I regarded him as a far better soldier than Halleck, and the subsequent course of events did not modify my views. If I had placed any one in command of ail the operations in the West it would have been Buell and not Halleck. I could not then place Buell in that position, and was consequently obliged to do the best I could with a divided command. Burnside to McClellan.

It is due to me to say confidentially to you that we are waiting on the naval ammunition, our supplies having arrived some time since in sufficient quantities to move. I am embarking my men as fast as possible. All Reno's brigade is on board, half of Parke's, and half of Foster's; and I hope to get them all on board to-morrow, leaving Col.

Army of the Mississippi From troops in the Western Department (Department No. 2) was created the Army of the Mississippi on March 5, 1862, and to General P. G. T. Beauregard was given the command. The army was divided into two corps headed by Major-Generals Leonidas Polk and Braxton Bragg. On March 29th, the army was joined to the Central Army of Kentucky with its three divisions, reserve corps, and cavalry. General A. S. Johnston, of the latter, took command of the Army of the Mississippi, that name having been preserved. Beauregard was second in command. The whole body was gathered at Corinth (except a force at Fort
