n. For God's sake, come! An officer who overheard its transmission reported the fact to General Johnston, who replied: I was aware of his distrust. Take no notice of it. An officer, high in the staff of the army, and influential — a Mississippian-telegraphed thus: Memphis, March 1, 1862. If Johnston and Hardee are not removed, the army is demoralized. President Davis must come here and take the field. A member of the Confederate Congress telegraphed as follows: Atlanta, March 11, 1862. I have been with and near General Johnston's army ever since he was assigned command — have been his admirer and defender-still admire him as a man; but, in my judgment, his errors of omission, commission, and delay, have been greater than any general's who ever preceded him, in any country. [He has] inexcusably and culpably lost us 12,000 men, the Mississippi Valley, and comparatively all provisions stored, by one dash of the enemy. This is the almost unanimous judgment of officer

tention to advance was abandoned by him first. He says on the same page: On the 10th of March I telegraphed to General Johnston: Further assurance given to me this day that you shall be promptly and adequately reinforced, so as to enable you to maintain your position, and resume first policy when the roads will permit. The first policy was to carry the war beyond our own border. The roads then permitted the marching of armies, so we had just left Manassas. Between the 7th and 11th of March, 1862, the Confederate forces in north-eastern Virginia, under General Johnston, were withdrawn to the line of the Rappahannock. On the 11-12th Stonewall Jackson evacuated Winchester and fell back to Strasburg.-editors. On the 20th of February, after a discussion in Richmond, his Cabinet being present, the President had directed me to prepare to fall back from Manassas, and do so as soon as the condition of the country should make the marching of troops practicable. I returned to Manas

Chapter 10: Kernstown. By the 11th of March, 1862, General Jackson had removed all his sick and supplies to Mount Jackson, and had gathered in all his troops from the outposts to Winchester. He now had only the First, Second, and Third Virginia Brigades, the last containing two small regiments, Colonel Ashby's regiment of horse, and six batteries of field artillery. On that day, General Banks approached within four miles of Winchester, on the north, and General Jackson went out and offered him battle. This challenge Banks declined, although his force present on the field was fourfold, and preferred to await the arrival of General Shields with his reserves. The Confederates, therefore, returned in the evening to their camp around the town, and General Jackson assembled the commander and colonels of the Stonewall Brigade, as a council of war, to lay before them a daring project which he had conceived. While he was awaiting them, he went to take his supper with the hospitable fa

They have been refugeeing in Warrenton; but now that there is danger of our army falling back from the Potomac to the Rappahannock, they must leave Warrenton, and are on their way to Danville. Their sweet home is utterly destroyed; the house burned, etc. Like ourselves, they feel as though their future was very dark. March 11th, 1862. Yesterday we heard good news from the mouth of James River. The ship Virginia, formerly the Merrimac, having been completely incased with iron, steamed out into Hampton Roads, ran into the Federal vessel Cumberland, and then destroyed the Congress, and ran the Minnesota ashore. Others were damaged. We have heard nothing further; but this is glory enough for one day, for which we will thank God and take courage. March 13th, 1862. Our hearts are overwhelmed to-day with our pr

Finlander, who was a gunner's mate on board the Valley City. a shell entered that vessel, and, exploding in the magazine, set fire to some wood-work. Davis was there, and, seeing the imminent danger to the vessel and all on board, because of an open barrel of gunpowder from which he had been serving, he seated himself upon it, and so remained until the flames were extinguished. For this brave act the Secretary of the Navy rewarded him with the appointment of Acting-gunner in the Navy (March 11, 1862), by which his salary was raised from $300 to $1,000 a year. Admiring citizens of New York raised and presented to him $1,100. the Secretary of the Navy, by authority of an act of Congress, approved Dec. 21, 1861, presented him with a medal of honor, on which are inscribed the following words: personal valor — John Davis, gunner's mate, U. S. S. Valley City, Albemarle Sound, February 10th, 1862. such Medals were afterward presented to a considerable number of gallant men in subordinate

o mood to receive an apology. They had been elated beyond measure by Pillow's premature boast of victory, and now the disappointment was of corresponding force. Davis, in the communication we are considering, said: I have directed, upon the exhibition of the case as presented by the two senior Generals, that they should be relieved from command, to await further orders, whenever a reliable judgment can be rendered on the merits of the case. Jefferson Davis's message to his Congress, March 11th, 1862. Davis himself, it has been charged since the close of the rebellion (for all spoke of him during the war with bated breath), was continually interfering in military affairs, and with the action of skillful commanders most mischievously. So say military experts, and those most intimately acquainted with his official conduct. Twenty years hence, says a politician of Mississippi, who was a fellow-worker in rebellion with Davis in Richmond, no one will be heard to deny that to the
March 8, 1862.--occupation of Chattanooga, Tenn., by Confederate forces. Report of Brig. Gen. John B. Floyd, C. S. Army. Chattanooga, Tenn., March 11, 1862. Sir: In obedience to orders given me by General A. S. Johnston, in which he directed that I should occupy this place and thereafter report directly to the War Department, I have the honor to state that I reached here safely with my command from Nashville, after a long but prosperous march, on the 8th day of this month. We succeeded in bringing away from Fort Donelson nearly the whole of the men belonging to my own brigade who were there; and although the fatigue and privations of a large number of them were unusually great, the men uttered no complaint, and are now, at the end of a march of 250 miles, in good health and excellent spirits. This point is one of very considerable military importance, as it commands important passes into Georgia and Alabama, and would enable the enemy, if he held it, to cut off

Andrew Johnson, Louisville : I have received your dispatch from Cincinnati. I have seen and conversed somewhat frequently with the most prominent Union men in and around Nashville. They are true, but the mass are either inimical or overawed by the tyranny of opinion and power that has prevailed or are waiting to see how matters turn out. They will acquiesce when they see that there is to be stability. You must not expect to be received with enthusiasm, but rather the revers
