din of war, from the strife of man, and from the curse of sin forever. I remember so well when, during our stay in Winchester, the first summer of the war, while General Johnston's army was stationed near there, how he, and so many others, would come in to see us, with their yet unfaded suits of gray-already sunburnt and soldier-like, but bright and cheerful. Alas! alas how many now fill the graves of heroes-their young lives crushed out by the unscrupulous hand of an invading foe! May 27th, 1863. The news from Vicksburg by the morning's papers is very delightful, if authentic. We pause for confirmation of it. The young people among the villagers and refugees have been amusing themselves, during the past two evenings, with tableaux. I am too old to enjoy such things in these troubled times, but one picture I regretted not seeing. It represented the young Confederacy. The whole bright galaxy was there-South Carolina in scarlet, restive and fiery; Virginia, grave and dignifi
an unsurpassed devotion to the service. Thomas W. Hamilton, Quartermaster, United States steamer Cincinnati, in an attack on the Vicksburgh batteries, May twenty-seventh, 1863, was severely wounded while at the wheel, but afterward returned to lend a hand, and had to be sent below. Frank Bois, Quartermaster, United States steamer Cincinnati, in an attack on the Vicksburgh batteries, May twenty-seventh, 1863. Coolness in making signals, and in nailing the flag to the stump of the forestaff under a heavy fire. Thomas Jenkins, seaman; Martin McHugh, seaman; Thomas E. Corcoran, landsman; Henry Dow, Boatswain's Mate, United States steamer Cincinnati, in an attack on the Vicksburgh batteries, May twenty-seventh, 1863. All conspicuous for coolness and bravery under a severely accurate fire. These were no ordinary cases of performance of duty. John Woon, Boatswain's Mate, United States steamer Pittsburgh, in an engagement with the batteries at Grand Gulf, April twenty-ninth,
Doc. 146.-report of General Joseph E. Johnston. Rebel operations in Mississippi and Louisiana. Meridian, Miss., Nov. 1, 1863. General S. Cooper, Adjutant and Inspector-General: sir: The following report of my operations in the Department of Mississippi and East-Louisiana is respectfully offered as a substitute for the imperfect one forwarded by me from Jackson on May twenty-seventh, 1863. While on my way to Mississippi, where I thought my presence had become necessary, I received, in Mobile, on March twelfth, the following telegram from the Secretary of War, dated March ninth: Order General Bragg to report to the War Department for conference. Assume yourself direct charge of the Army of Middle Tennessee. In obedience to this order I at once proceeded to Tullahoma. On my arrival I informed the Secretary of War, by a telegram of March nineteenth, that General Bragg could not then be sent to Richmond, as he has ordered, on account of the critical condition of his

d unless relieved by a superior force a month more or less would bring about a surrender It was not likely that the siege would be raised, for if the Federal Army, with all the disadvantages under which it labored, could manage to dispose of an enemy 80,000 strong in a country where the latter occupied all the strong positions, it could prevent the escape of that portion of them which had been driven into the city. U. S. Gun-boat Cincinnati sunk by the upper water battery at Vicksburg, May 27, 1863. (from a pen-and-ink sketch by Rear-Admiral Walke.) It is not the province of the writer to give an account of the military operations of the siege of Vicksburg; this book is mostly confined to the naval operations, and he is not sufficiently informed on the subject to do full justice to the movements of the Army. He knows enough, however, to be satisfied that everything was done by the generals of our Army in a masterly manner, and that they had posted themselves so securely around
ich colored troops were engaged was an affair at Island Mounds, Mo., October 28, 1862, in which a detachment of the First Kansas was attacked by a superior number of Confederates under command of Colonel Cockerel. Although outnumbered, they made a successful resistance and scored a victory. Their loss was 10 killed, including a Captain, and 12 wounded The First Kansas, also, lost 16 men killed on May 18, 1863, in a minor engagement at Sherwood, Mo. In the assault on Port Hudson, La., May 27, 1863, colored troops were used for the first time in a general engagement. The Nineteenth Army Corps, during its besiegement of that stronghold, included several colored regiments in its organization. There were the First and Third Louisiana Native Guards; The First Louisiana Engineers, Corps d'afrique; and, the Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth Infantry, Corps d'afrique. During the siege the First Louisiana Native Guards lost 2 officers and 32 men killed, and 3 officers and 92 men wo

eral Pemberton: I have lately arrived, and learn that Major-General Sherman is between us, with four divisions, at Clinton. It is important to reestablish communication that you may be reenforced. If practicable, come up on his rear at once. To beat such a detachment would be of immediate value; the troops here could cooperate. All the strength you can quickly assemble should be brought. Time is all-important. Your obedient servant, J. E. Johnston, General. War Department, May 27, 1863. General J. E. Johnston, Commanding, etc. General: Brigadier-General G. J. Rains having been detailed for duty in connection with torpedoes and sub-terra shells, has been ordered to report to you. The President has confidence in his inventions, and is desirous that they should be employed both on land and river, if opportunity offers, both at Vicksburg and its vicinity. Should communications allow, you are desired to send him there; but if otherwise, to employ him in his devices
Doc. 195.-skirmish near Fayetteville, Va. Fayetteville, Virginia, May 27, 1863. We have perfect quiet here now, though but a few days ago matters were lively. On Sunday, the seventeenth of May, our cavalry outpost on the Raleigh road, distant from Fayette Court-House something like eight miles, were informed of the presence of the enemy in their front; and one company of the Second Virginia cavalry was sent to their assistance. About fifty men of the Twelfth regiment had been stationed on Blake's farm, one mile and a half inside of the cavalry outpost. Saturday morning the infantry force was drawn in, and arrived at camp about dark. Some time during the night the cavalry were attacked, and the pickets driven into our outside camp-guard, where they remained until the morning of the eighteenth, when Captain Robert Wilson arrived with companies A, F, K, and E, of the Twelfth, from this point; and proceeded with his whole force, consisting of one company of the Second Vi
arged with so high a military offence. Moreover, I have been told by good authority that the pretended order, published in the newspapers, is very different from the order shown the President. In these, as in many other matters connected with the Army of the Potomac, the press has grossly misrepresented me. But time will place all these things in their true light. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, H. W. Halleck. General Franklin to General Halleck. York, Penn., May 27, 1863. To Major-General H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief U. S. Army, Washington, D. C.: General: I have received your letter of the twenty-fifth inst. I am sure, from your statement, that General Burnside did not make the formal and earnest request to remove the Secretary of War and yourself, to which reference is made in my pamphlet reply to the Committee on the Conduct of the War, and my assertion should have been that General Burnside said that he made the request. The facts are these.

Va.: Major: I beg leave to report the operations of this brigade in the late battles of the Rappahannock. It is proper to premise, that this brigade with that of General Posey, had been stationed near the United States Ford for the purpose of defending that crossing of the Rappahannock. On Wednesday, the twenty-ninth April, it was reported to me that the enemy had made his appearance in force at the Germana an
