oyd, at the instance, as I afterward learned, of General Pillow, who, after drawing out his troops for the attack, thought it too late for the attempt. Neither General Floyd nor General Pillow alludes to this council; but it is evident that the foregoing statement is substantially correct, as General Pillow, having arranged the preliminaries for an attack, actually led his men out, and afterward withdrew them. Colonel W. E. Baldwin, commanding the Second Brigade, says in his report, March 12, 1862: About noon, General Pillow directed the left wing to be formed in the open ground to the left and rear of our position in the lines, for the purpose, apparently, of attacking the enemy's right. My command, to which the Twentieth Mississippi, Major Brown, was temporarily attached, constituted the advance, in the following order: first, the Twenty-sixth Mississippi; second, the Twenty-sixth Tennessee; third, the Twentieth Mississippi. Formed in column by platoon, we advanced in a

There are no indications of an immediate movement by the enemy from Nashville. I have no fears of a movement through Tennessee on Chattanooga. West Tennessee is menaced by heavy forces. My advance will be opposite Decatur on Sunday. (Signed) A. S. Johnston, General C. S. A. To President Davis, Richmond. Richmond, Virginia, March 12, 1862. my dear General: The departure of Captain Wickliffe offers an opportunity, of which I avail myself, to write you an unofficial letter. We have suffered great anxiety because of recent events in Kentucky and Tennessee; and I have been not a little disturbed by the repetitions of reflections upon yourself. I expected you to have made a full report of events precedent and consequent to the fall of Fort Donelson. In the mean time I made for you such defense as friendship prompted, and

rrott guns. He formed rifle-pits for a thousand men, and planted his cannon in sunken batteries below them. This was done with perfect success in the face of cannonading from the Confederate gun-boats. This position commanded the passage of the river in the rear of Island Number10, and prevented supplies being furnished to that post across the peninsula formed by Reel Foot Lake and Madrid Bend. Pope's four siege-guns (three 32-pounders and an 8-inch mortar) arrived at near sunset, March 12, 1862. and at dawn the next morning (thirty-five hours after they left Bird's Point, on the Cairo and Fulton Railway) they were in position, within half a mile of Fort Thompson. These guns were carried twenty miles by railway, and dragged on trucks (such as is delineated in the engraving) twenty miles farther, over a miry road most of the way. On that work and Hollins's flotilla he at once opened a vigorous cannonade and bombardment. March 13. They replied with equal vigor, but in the cour

derate gun-boats did head towards his ship, and realizing his helpless condition he made every preparation to destroy the Minnesota, determined that she should not fall into the hands of the enemy. Capt. Van Brunt goes on to say: A short time after the Merrimac and her consorts had changed their course, and were heading for Craney Island. In writing history it is no more than fair that both sides should have a hearing. Lieut. Greene, in his report to the Secretary of the Navy, dated March 12, 1862. says: At 8 A. M. perceived the Merrimac underway and standing towards the Minnesota; hove up anchor and went to quarters At 8:45 A. M. we opened fire on the Merrimac, and continued the action until 11:30 A. M., when Capt. Worden was injured. Capt. Worden then sent for me to take charge of the vessel. We continued the action until 12:15 P. M., when the Merrimac retreated to Sewell's Point, and we went to the Minnesota and lay by her. Lieut. Joseph B. Smith. ´╝łActing commande

n no case disturb or take away any article without a special order from Flag-Officer Du Pont or Gen. Wright. [Signed] John Rodgers, Charles Stedman, Commanders United States Navy. [Approved] S. F. Du Pont, H. G. Wright. The following order was published for the benefit of the inhabitants of Fernandina: Order: The inhabitants of Fernandina, wishing to communicate with their friends beyond the lines, can do so by means of unsealed letters left at this office to-day, March twelfth, 1862. By command of Brig.-Gen. H. G. Wright. An order was also issued ordering all persons on Amelia Island, not connected with the rebel army or navy, to immediately present themselves at the office of the Provost-Marshal, in order that their names might be registered and their property protected. Any person failing to comply with the above, will be treated as an enemy of the Government of the United States. From the inhabitants we learn that the rebels intend to desert all their
