under flag of truce, they would likewise have been taken. After the Harriet Lane had been captured, she was fired into by the other ships; and Major Smith told me that, his blood being up, he sent the ex-master of the Harriet Lane to Commodore Renshaw, with a message that, unless the firing was stopped, he would massacREE the captured crew. After hearing this, Commodore Renshaw blew up his ship, with himself in her, after having given an order to the remainder, sauve qui peut. 13th April, 1863 (Monday). I breakfasted with General Bee, and took leave of all my Brownsville friends. McCarthy is to give me four times the value of my gold in Confederate notes. The value of Confederate paper has since decreased. At Charleston I was offered six to one for my gold, and at Richmond eight to one. We left Brownsville for San Antonio at 11 A. M.

e me two letters on the subject of the attack, in which he says, in effect: After the fall of Wagner and Gregg, acting under the belief that our forces were thereby demoralized, the enemy would doubtless make a demonstration against Sumter. Our impression to this effect was strengthened by the number of armed boats seen to be gathering around the flag-ship, from vessels inside and outside, during September 8th. We were, moreover, able to read all the signals made that day. On the 13th of April, 1863, Beauregard announced to the War Department that he had obtained a key to the signals, but suspected deception. Major John Johnson writes to the editors that advantage was taken of the signals in preparing to resist the assault on Wagner, July 18th, and the boat attacks on Cumming's Point and Fort Sumter, in September. On the other hand, General W. B. Taliaferro, who commanded on Morris Island at the time of the attack on Battery Wagner referred to by Major Johnson, states in the Phi

rsary of the assault on Sumter, and God grant that its recurrence may witness the destruction of that fortress by our naval forces under your command. I am very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy. Rear-Admiral S. F. Dupont, Commanding S. A. B. Squadron, Port Royal, S. C. President Lincoln was greatly disturbed at the want of success at Charleston, and sent the following communications to Admiral Dupont: Executive Mansion, Washington, April 13, 1863. (Telegram.) Hold your position inside the bar near Charleston; or, if you shall have left it, return to it and hold it till further orders. Do not allow the enemy to erect new batteries or defences on Morris Island. If has begun it, drive him out. I do not herein order you to renew the general attack. That is to depend upon your own discretion or a further order. A. Lincoln. Admiral Dupont. Executive Mansion, Washington, April 14, 1863. This is intended to clear up

n, to the amazement and consternation of all his officers, Hooker Leaders of the fruitless raid Major-General George Stoneman and Staff; photographed in April, 1863, a month before it fell to the lot of these gallant cavalry officers to lead ten thousand sabers on a daring but futile expedition. Sweeping around in the rear of the Confederate army, it was their intention to cut Lee's railroad communication with Richmond. According to Hooker's plan, this advance movement was to begin April 13th, two weeks before that of his main army, but heavy rains delayed the expedition until the 27th and Hooker's whole force set out simultaneously with the cavalry. Thus Stoneman's work was wasted, for the Army of the Potomac was defeated and in full retreat before the cavalry could strike. On the 5th of May Stoneman recalled his detachments and, leaving his headquarters at Louisa Court House, rejoined the army at Falmouth on the 8th. The most daring raid of the expedition was performed by
onfined by their order, and that thereafter the judges must discharge all prisoners against whom the grand jury would find no indictment. This statute, however, as we shall see, was not strictly observed, but was set at naught by the appointment of military commissions by army commanders. The most famous arrest of this kind during the war was that of Clement L. Vallandigham, then a member of Congress from Ohio. General A. E. Burnside, in command of the Department of Ohio, issued, on April 13, 1863, his General Order No. 38, declaring that the habit of declaring sympathies Ford's theater in Washington, where Lincoln was shot Within this building the shot rang out that struck a fearful blow to the South as well as to the North. On the night of Friday, April 14, 1865, President Lincoln went to Ford's Theater. About ten o'clock he was shot by John Wilkes Booth. The next morning about seven the President died.

fficers and soldiers, upheld the historic reputation of that fort, and contributed their full share to the result. The powerful batteries of Battery Bee were commanded by Lieutenant-Colonel J. C. Simkins, and were served with great effect. Battery Wagner, under Major C. K. Huger; Cummings's Point Battery, under Lieutenant Lesesne; and Battery Beauregard, under Captain Sitgreaves, all did their duty with devotion and zeal. From Brigadier-General R. S.

General Beauregard, in his official communication to the War Department, dated Charleston, May 24th, 1863, recapitulates as follows the salient features of Admiral Dupont's attack: The action lasted two hours and twenty-five minutes; but the chief damage is reported by the enemy to have been done in thirty minutes. The Keokuk did not come nearer than nine hundred yards of Fort Sumter. She was destroyed. The
