ton that they were known among Secessionists in Washington two or three days after his first interview with the President — so he abandoned that movement; intending to make one somewhat different, in the course of a few days. This new movement contemplated a crossing in force at Banks's and at the United States fords, above Fredericksburg; the crossing below being also made, or at least menaced, as originally proposed: and again his preparations were perfected and his army now put Jan. 20, 1863. in motion ; when, at 10 P. M., there burst over it one of the severest and most trying storms ever experienced in that region. Snow, driving sleet, pouring rain, a general breaking up of the roads, hitherto hard and dry, and a chaos of the elements which rendered locomotion impossible and life under the drenching sky scarcely endurable, arrested that advance at its outset, and fixed our army in the mire wherein it for hours wretchedly, sullenly, hopelessly floundered. Daylight exposed
famous by its gallant action at Williamsburg. This one division, also, fought the battle of Bristoe Station, Va., August 27, 1862--one of the preliminary actions at Manassas — the brunt of the fight falling on the Excelsior Brigade, which successfully carried a strong position of the Confederates, but with a loss of forty per cent. The Seventy-third had only 8 officers and 99 men present there; three of these officers were killed. The One Hundred and Sixty-third New York was disbanded January 20, 1863, and the men transferred to the Fourth Excelsior. By this arrangement the depleted ranks of the regiment received a nominal accession of 365 men, of whom about 250 reported for duty. Colonel Brewster commanded the Excelsior Brigade at Gettysburg and during all its subsequent service in the field, leaving Colonel Burns in command of the regiment both in battle and camp. During the campaigns of 1864-5 it fought in Birney's (3d) Division of the Second Corps, the Third Corps having been
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 9, 1863, and distributed to the 107th, 123d, and 150th Regiments; and the 163d was transferred to the 73d on January 20, 1863. The 190th and 191st were sm ill battalions which did not leave the State, the war ending soon after their organization was commenced. New Jersey.--The record of the Jerseymen in the war shows that they were true to the patriotic memories of Princeton and Monmouth. The Jersey troops became conspicuous early in the war by reason of the First and Second Jersey Brigades; in fact, any history of the Army of the Potomac would be incomplete and deficient were it without frequent mention

Esteemed friend: . . . We have at this present seventeen officers and one hundred and one men rescued from the gunboat Hatteras, which we entirely destroyed on the evening of the eleventh of January, 1863. As it is likely you may see the Northern accounts, I will give you the true version, or rather facts as they actually occurred.

These forces, styled by me for convenience and propriety of description, the Army of the Mississippi, consisted of parts of two corps d'armee; namely, the Thirteenth, my own, and the Fifteenth, Major-Gen. Sherman's. Desiring to give my undivided attention to matters affecting the general command, I immediately assigned Brig.-General Geo. W.

M., commanding at Independence, that the community may understand and know the kind of foe we have to contend with in Missouri, and whether peace rules supreme within her border. How very pleasant the reflection that in the endurance of all the hardships imposed by our rulers in their attempts to conciliate traitors, upon the loyal inhabitants, that it is a necessity, to enable them hereafter to live in harmony with such demons as those who have perpetrated these outrages. The devils in hell, by comparison, would show as bright angels of light by the side of such men. Ben. Loan, Brigadier-General M. S.M. headquarters Fifth cavalry M.
