mmanding feels sure that you will do your part, as he will, in preventing such atrocities in future, and that the perpetrators of them will be brought to justice, whether German or Choctaw. The privileges which you extend to our medical officers will be reciprocated, and as soon as possible means will be taken for an exchange of prisoners. I am, sir, very respectfully yours, Dubury H. Maury, A. A. G. Reply.headquarters of the army of the Southwest, camp at cross timber Hollows, March 21, 1862. Captain: I am in receipt of yours of the fourteenth inst., expressing the reasonable regret of your Commanding General for the barbarities committed by the Indians at the recent battle of Pea Ridge. The fact of many bodies having been found scalped and mutilated was patent, and the General commanding the army wishes, for the sake of humanity, that the testimony was not incontestable. In reply to your information that men who surrendered themselves prisoners of war are reported to
turn to their homes, and promising protection to the property of all good citizens, and the landing party then returned to their vessels. Nothing was removed from any of the houses, the men under Lieut. Balch Commanding, carefully abstaining from injuring or taking away the private effects of the inhabitants. I enclose a copy of Commander Godon's interesting report. Very respectfully, etc., S. F. Du Pont, Flag-Officer. Hon. Gideon Welles. Flag-ship Wabash, off St. John's, Fla., March 21, 1862. sir: Since my last despatch of the nineteenth inst., I have received another interesting report from Commander Godon, giving the details of a reconnoissance by the inland passage from Brunswick to Darien, a copy of which I enclose. Com. Godon, with the Pocahontas, Lieutenant Commanding Balch, and the Potomska, Acting Lieutenant Commanding Watmough, with the launch and howitzer of the Mohican, in charge of Lieut. Miller, proceeded to open the interior communication between St. Simo
m, Says our liberty-loving, thrice blest Uncle Sam! On your Western Gibraltars while placing reliance, With cotton-zone heroes and Beauregard's science, Our banner-defenders, amid battle's din, Marched up to your works, then bravely dashed in. Your rebels discuss, with such evident unction, Our only defeat at Manassas' famed Junction, Let me ask you one question, with a very low bow, You held it at that time, but who holds it now? Why, what were you doing, O fierce Texan Ranger! Who sleep on volcanoes and breakfast on danger, On the day when the chivalry, panic-struck, ran, Basely frightened away by our wee Iron mand Banks, “the little iron man.” Still hide in your forts, still skulk in your garrisons, Indulge in self-complacent, boasting comparisons, But this new mode of fighting by running away, Is a mode, in the long run, that's sure not to pay. Oh! there's this dit-of-bifference betwixt you and us, We'll lamm you and flax you for raising this muss! Boston, March 21, 1862
