The scene reminded them of the unpretending and genial hospitality daily witnessed in the families of Virginia. May 18th, 1862. The 16th was the day appointed by the President for fasting and prayer. The churches here were filled, as I trust they were all over the land. May 27th, 1862. General Jackson's career going on gloriously. After defeating Millroy, here we were most delighted to find it. In that way W. B. N., then incarcerated in the walls of Fort Delaware, heard from his mother, wife, and children, for the first time since he was captured, in March. Mrs. N's diary begins: May 18th, 1862. S. H., Hanover County, Va. C. M. and myself set off yesterday morning for church.

May 18th, 1862. S. H., Hanover County, Va. C. M. and myself set off yesterday morning for church. At my brother's gate we met Dr. N., who told us that there were rumours of the approach of the enemy from the White House. We then determined not to go to our own church, but in another direction, to the Presbyterian church. After waiting there until the hour for service had arrived, an elder came in and announced to us that the minister thought it prudent not to come, but to have the congregation dismissed at once, as the enemy were certainly approaching. We returned home in a most perturbed state, and found that my husband had just arrived, with several of our sons and nephews, to spend a day or two with us. In a short time a servant announced that he had seen the Yankees that morning at the Old Church. Then there was no time to be lost; our gentlemen must go. We began our hurried preparations, and sent for the carriage and buggy. We were told that the driver had gone to the
s far blessed our arms. The names of General Grant and his coadjutors are again in all mouths. The praises of the soldiers and sailors are being spoken in unstinted terms. The fatigues, hardships, perils, and trials of the campaign paign are at an end. Twenty-seven thousand prisoners, among which are nineteen general officers; a hundred and twenty cannon, and stand-anln innumerable, are among the substantial trophies of victory. Ii. The siege of Vicksburgh. It was on the eighteenth day of May, 1862, that our fleet, under Admiral Farragut, after his capture of New-Orleans, first made his appearance before Vicksburgh. The confederates had foreseen the danger to their western territory from the loss of New-Orleans, and made haste to fortify some point higher up. Vicksburgh, being accessible by railway, offered the best facilities, besides being situated on a point naturally strong. At that time we held Baton Rouge, on the one end, and menaced Fort Pillow, at the other end of t

Turchin and Lytle were sent northward along the line of the Nashville and Decatur railway, while General Negley was operating in that vicinity, and farther eastward, dispersing the Confederate forces at various points. On the 13th of May, the latter went out from Pulaski on that railway, and, supported by Colonel Lytle, at Athens below, drove a gathering force of Confederates from Rogersville, in Alabama, across the Tennessee River. Reports of Generals Mitchel and Negley, May 14th and 18th, 1862. Later, Colonel Turchin, who was at Athens, was attacked by Confederates June 4. and driven away. In the assault and pursuit, many of the citizens of that village joined. With re-enforcements Turchin returned, and drove the Confederate troops out of the town, when his exasperated soldiers sacked and pillaged the houses of secessionists there, because of their active complicity in the hostile movements. For this Colonel Turchin was tried by a court martial, and acquitted. He was pr

derates were much weaker. The retreat from Norfolk was caused by a panic which sometimes seizes upon people, and leads them to do things at the moment for which they rebuke themselves when they come to their senses. The re-occupation of Norfolk Navy Yard was a great convenience to the North Atlantic squadron, which had been obliged to send most of its vessels to Philadelphia and New York for repairs, and now the operations up the James River could be carried on more effectively. On May 18, 1862, Flag-officer Goldsborough reports to the Department an engagement which took place on the James River between some gun-boats under Commander John Rodgers and a heavy battery on Drury's Bluff (a high point commanding a long reach of the river). The vessels which attacked this stronghold were the iron-clad (so-called) Galena, Commander John Rodgers, the Monitor, Lieutenant W. N. Jeffers, and the unarmored steamers Aroostook, Port Royal and Naugatuck. These vessels moved up the James

urtis by land through Mattison, or by water up the Arkansas and White Rivers. We are gradually advancing on Corinth, but as the enemy is strongly intrenched, and his number equal if not superior to ours, it is necessary to move with great caution. Most of the country passed over is a thick forest, with numerous streams and deep marshes, which require corduroys and bridges. Our progress is necessarily slow. H. W. Halleck. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of Wrar. before Corinth, May 18, 1862. Our whole line moved up yesterday to within 2 miles of enemy's works, driving back their advance guards, which made strong resistance, upon the Purdy road. Major-General Sherman's division (our extreme right) lost 8 killed, 31 wounded. Loss in other divisions very slight. The enemy apparently waiting our attack upon his works.

The regiment arrived in Washington, September 21, 1861, and was assigned soon after to Davidson's Brigade, W. F. Smith's Division. In March, 1862, this division was placed in Keyes's (Fourth) Corps and accompanied it to the Peninsula; but on May 18, 1862, the division was detached and used in forming the Sixth Corps, in which command (Third Brigade, Second Division) the regiment served until the end of the war. Although the regiment participated in all the battles of the Army of the Potomac in 1862 and 1863, its losses were comparatively small until 1864, when it encountered some hard fighting and severe losses. The Forty-ninth started on Grant's Virginia campaign, May 4, 1864, with 384 men, losing at the Wilderness, 29 killed, 54 wounde

Mr. Blaine. Will the gentleman from Massachusetts [Mr. Butler] allow me to read one sentence? I answered, Certainly. Mr. Blaine. The decision in regard to the payment of the first series of seven-thirty notes was made on the 18th of May, 1862, by Salmon P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury, in these words:-- The three-year seven-thirty treasury notes are part of the temporary loan, and will be paid in treasury notes, unless the holders prefer to exchange them, etc. That was three months before Mr. Fessenden went into the treasury. He found the question res adjudicata. Res adjudicata. A thing adjudicated or determined. The gentleman is all wrong in charging this upon Mr. Fessenden. There is not the remotest foundat
