ry kindly regard for Count Mejan, as he gave me a certificate of good manners. He wrote to his minister,--and it was filed in the State Department,--that General Butler can be very polite when he chooses. Thus matters remained until Seward sent that secession spy and agent, Reverdy Johnson, to New Orleans; and then the French consul asked for a pass to go to Washington and came back with an order on me to release him from his promises. Of course I obeyed orders. Shortly prior to Nov. 13, 1862, I was informed that our minister at Brussels had written to the State Department that the Confederate agents in Europe were embarrassed by the non-arrival of a large amount of coin from New Orleans, and that the purveyors of cloth could not be paid. One of these was the commissary-general of the French army, who sold the cloth from the army stores of the emperor to the rebels. But, the minister added, assurances are now given that the money is in the hands of the French consul, and wi

I recommend that Colonel Stevenson, for his efficient services on this march, and in the affair at Little Creek and Rawls's Mills, as well as previous services at the battles of Roanoke and Newbern, be promoted to the rank of Brigadier-General, to date from November third, 1862. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant. J. G. Foster, Major-General Commanding. Boston Transcript account. camp of the Fifth Massachusetts regiment, Newbern, N. C., Nov. 13, 1862. The Fifth Massachusetts regiment, since it left Boston on the twenty second of October, has endured a greater share of the hardships of war than usually falls to the lot of new regiments. During the brief time which it has been absent from Massachusetts, it has sailed over one thousand miles in crowded transports, marched one hundred and seven miles over wretched roads and in all varieties of weather, from burning heat to extreme cold and snow, camping without tents for more than a
Doc. 44.-message of Governor Brown. Executive Department, Milledgeville, Nov. 13, 1862. To the General Assembly: I communicate herewith a copy of a letter received on yesterday, from Col. Henry H. Floyd, commanding the militia of Camden County, informing me that on the fourth day of this month three companies of negroes were landed in St. Mary's, who, after insulting the few ladies remaining there, and taking every thing they could lay their hands upon, retired to their gunboats without the slightest molestation. On the same day, all the salt-works in the county were destroyed, except two, which, by this time, have capacity to turn out twenty-five or thirty bushels per day. Unless protection is afforded, these must soon share the same fate. The people on the coast possess large numbers of cattle, hogs, and other stock. The enemy leave their gun-boats, kill and carry off stock without opposition. The colonel asks for an order to call out the militia for three to six mont
her glory. I feel confident it will be enough for me to state the necessity that exists to insure a supply of the article named. Let the people in each county and corporation in the State set to work immediately to procure whatever may be necessary for the soldiers from their immediate neighborhoods. Let them appoint a trusted agent to collect the articles that may be contributed, to carry them in person to the encampments, and to see to their proper distribution. These contributions will cheer and comfort thousands, and call down the blessings of heaven upon yourselves and families. The unusually early appearance of winter induces me to make the appeal now, and admonishes me to urge upon you to expedite your offerings. [L. S.] Given under my hand at Richmond, and under the seal of the Commonwealth, this thirteenth day of November, 1862, and in the eighty-seventh year of the Commonwealth. John Letcher. By the Governor: Geo. W. Munford, Secretary of the Commonwealth.
s hoped would take place during the armistice. The three powers would interfere only to smooth the obstacles, and only within the limits which the two interested parties would prescribe. The French government was of the opinion that, even in the event of a failure of immediate success, those overtures might have proved useful in leading the minds of men heated by passion to consider the advantages of conciliation and peace. The reply of Great Britain, through Lord John Russell, on November 13, 1862, is really contained in this extract: After weighing all the information which has been received from America, her Majesty's Government are led to the conclusion that there is no ground at the present moment to hope that the Federal Government would accept the proposal suggested, and a refusal from Washington at the present time would prevent any speedy renewal of the offer. The Russian Government, in reply, said: According to the information we have hitherto received, we

On the same day McClellan left us, to the regret and sincere grief of the whole army. Yesterday, I am informed, Generals Halleck and Meigs made their appearance at Warrenton, and it is understood a grand council of war is to be held to-day. McClellan has always objected to operating on this line, and insisted on the James River as being the proper base for operations. Halleck, under Washington influ
