much injured; but at the time of the writer's visit it was in good order. The correspondent of the Cincinnati Commercial, who was present, says, seven rebels were killed within the little inclosure in front of the General's cottage. Obliquely across the square was the public-house, known as the Verandah Hotel, kept by Dr. Gibson, the post-master of Corinth, when the writer visited that place. This was the Headquarters of General Bragg at the time of the siege of Corinth, at the close of May, 1862, and was one of the few dwellings in that village that survived the storms of the war. It was used as a hospital, and bore many scars made by the conflict. During the occupation of Corinth by the Confederate Army, General A. S. Johnston's quarters were at the Tishamingo Hotel (which was burned), Polk's were at the house of the widow Hayes, and Hardee's at the house of Dr. Stout.

from that region of nearly all armed and organized opponents of the Government. But few military events, having an important bearing on the grander operations of the war, had occurred there since the close of 1861. See page 104, volume II. We have already mentioned the brilliant exploit of General Lander, in the vicinity of the Baltimore and Ohio railway, See page 367, volume II. early in 1862. Little was done there after that, except watching and raiding for more than a year. In May, 1862, General Heth was in the Greenbrier region, and on the day when Kenly was attacked at Front Royal, See page 391, volume II. he marched upon Lewisburg with three regiments, and attacked two Ohio regiments stationed there, under Colonel George Crooke. Heth was routed, and escaped by burning the bridge over the Greenbrier behind him, with a loss of over one hundred men (mostly prisoners), four guns, and three hundred muskets. Crooke's loss was sixty-three men. After this there was com

It was well that he was stopped, for had he gone into the open way through one of the rows, the Weehawken would doubtless have been blown to atoms by the monster torpedo just mentioned. Meanwhile Dupont was bringing the monitors into position for a simultaneous attack on Fort Sumter, when his ponderous flag-ship, the New Ironsides, This vessel was built at Philadelphia by Merrick & Sons, at a cost of $780,000. She was of 8,486 tons burden. She was launched in May, 1862. Her armament was of 200-pounder rifled Parrott guns, capable of throwing solid shot six miles, and her complement of men was 500. She did good service during the war, and was accidentally burnt near Philadelphia, in December, 1866. struck by the tide, became almost unmanageable, and confused the line.

ng. The Potomac may be said to have been opened with the fall of the forts at Cockpit Point, for though the flotilla was maintained, and there were skirmishes with the enemy from time to time, there was nothing to hinder the passage of vessels up and down the river. About the end of the year 1861, the United States Government began to realize the necessity of building vessels that would be able to contend with the heavy iron-clads which had been constructed by the Confederates. By May, 1862, the latter had finished the powerful Merrimac, together with the Louisiana and Arkansas, both equally powerful with the Merrimac, and had nearly completed the Mississippi at New Orleans, the Albemarle, the Atlanta, the Tennessee, at Mobile, and several other iron-clads on the tributaries of the Mississippi. Up to this time the United States Government had only Ericsson's little Monitor to show, but the success of that famous vessel stirred the Navy Department up to building iron-clads

e at Bentonville. At the close of the campaign, in April, 1865, Major-General Joseph A. Mower was assigned to the command of the corps, whereupon General Williams resumed his old command, that of the First, or Red Star Division. Williams, whose commission as brigadier (dated May 17, 1861, had commanded this division from the beginning of the war. It was remarkable as being the only division which served during the war without a change of commander. Williams commanded it at Winchester, May, 1862, and rode at its head in the Grand Review of May, 1865; he was absent only when in temporary command of the corps. He commanded the Twelfth Corps at Antietam, Mansfield having been killed while going into action; also, at Gettysburg, Slocum being in command then of the Right Wing. He also commanded the Twentieth Corps while on the March to the Sea and through the Carolinas; at the battles of Averasboro and Bentonville. He was an able officer, enjoying to the fullest extent the respect a

Active service commenced in May, 1862, some of the companies doing duty near Suffoaged on outpost duty for several months. In May, 1862, the division advanced to Fredericksburg, bus first battle — at Thoroughfare Gap, Va. In May, 1862, it joined McDowell's Corps, having been assf Yorktown. After the fall of Yorktown — in May, 1862--it moved up the Peninsula, then in Griffin'ort Monroe, where it remained encamped until May, 1862, when it was ordered to Norfolk on provost dest Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley until May, 1862, when it was assigned to Kimball's Brigade, ttox.

This, its first enlistment, was for thirty days. It volunteered again in May, 1862, for three months; and, again, in June, 1863, for one month. But the Seventh rendered a far greater and more valuable service to the country by the large number of efficient and well-drilled soldiers, which went from its ranks to accept comm disbanded before completing their term of enlistment: the 7th Cavalry, organized in October, 1861, was discontinued after six months; the 1st Marine Artillery was mustered out in March, 1863; the 11th Inifantry (Fire Zoulaves) was disbanded in May, 1862; the 53d was discontinued in March, 1862; the 55th was transferred to the 38th in December, 1862; the 87th was transferred to the 40th in September, 1862; the 101st was transferred to the 37th in December, 1862; the 145th was disbanded December
