Lt.-Colonel Arthur J. Fremantle, Three Months in the Southern States, June, 1863. (search)
do not believe this is the case with respect to the South, whatever certain Richmond papers may say. The South looks to England for every thing when this war is over;--she wants our merchants to buy her cotton, she wants our ships to carry it;--she is willing that England should supply her with all the necessaries which she formerly received from the North. It is common to hear people declare they would rather pay twice the price for English goods than trade any more with Yankeedom. 19th June, 1863 (Friday). I embarked at 10 A. M. on board a small steamer to visit Drewry's Bluff on the James River, the scene of the repulse of the ironclads Monitor and Galena. The stream exactly opposite Richmond is very shallow and rocky, but it becomes navigable about a mile below the city. Drewry's Bluff is about eight miles distant, and, before reaching it, we had to pass through two bridges-one of boats, and the other a wooden bridge. I was shown over the fortifications by Captain Chatar
, who unanimously requested General Gardner to surrender. He replied that large reenforcements would arrive within a week, and if they would only hold out a few days longer, the siege would result favorably to them. The disaffected officers returned to their camps and told the men if the General did not surrender in a week they would compel him to. Another deserter reports that the rebels have but forty head of cattle left to feed on. Boston traveller account. New-Orleans, June 19, 1863. It is not with much pleasure or satisfaction that I undertake to narrate the momentous events in this department for the past week. Most prominent among them is the second unsuccessful assault on Port Hudson, last Sunday, the fourteenth. Since the first assault, on the twenty-seventh May, our forces have held the position gained by them then, our infantry in many places being very near the enemy's works, so that easy conversation can be carried on by the belligerents.

Doc. 75.-re-admission of Louisiana. Letter from President Lincoln. Executive mansion, Washington, June 19, 1863. Messrs. E. E. Mathiot, Bradish Johnston, and Thomas Cottman: gentlemen: Your letter, which follows, has been received and considered: To his Excellency Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States: The undersigned, a committee appointed by the planters of the State of Louisiana, respectfully represent that they have been delegated to seek of the General Government a full recognition of all the rights of the State as they existed previous to the passage of an act of secession, upon the principle of the existence of the State Constitution unimpaired, and no legal act having transpired that could in any way deprive them of the advantages conferred by the Constitution. Under this Constitution the State wishes to return to its full allegiance, in the enjoyment of all rights and privileges exercised by the other States under the Federal Constitution. With
generally successful raider Morgan was preparing, on our right, for a more extensive and daring cavalry expedition than he had yet undertaken. Meantime, a party of predatory horsemen, about 80 in number, claiming to belong to the 2d Kentucky Confederate cavalry, crossed the Ohio from western Kentucky near Leavenworth, Ind., about the middle of June, raiding through Orange, Orleans, and Washington counties; and were trying to make their way back into Kentucky, when they were cornered June 19, 1863. by the Leavenworth home guards, Maj. Clendenin, and the steamboat Izetta, and were soon glad to surrender. Barely one of them escaped to the Kentucky shore, and he was immediately captured. At length, setting out June 27. from Sparta, Morgan crossed July 1-2. the Cumberland, then in flood, near Burkesville — building boats for his trains and swimming his horses — with a wellmounted force of 2,028 effectives and 4 guns; pushing back Col. Wolford's cavalry, who sought to impede

Department, June 16, 1863. General J. E. Johnston: Your telegram That of June 15th. grieves and alarms me. Vicksburg must not be lost without a desperate struggle. The interest and honor of the Confederacy forbid it. I rely on you still to avert the loss. If better resources do not offer, you must hazard attack. It may be made in concert with the garrison, if practicable, but otherwise without, by day or night, as you think best. James A. Seddon, Secretary of War. Jackson, June 19, 1863. Hon. J. A. Seddon: Dispatch of 16th received. I think that you do not appreciate the difficulties in the course you direct, nor the probabilities in consequence of failure. Grant's position, naturally very strong, is intrenched, and protected by powerful artillery; and the roads are obstructed. His reenforcements have been at least equal to my whole force. The Big Black covers him from attack, and would cut off our retreat if defeated. We cannot combine operations with General
