r was a fort that invited soldiers to walk in and take possession more plainly than Fort Fisher. Report of the Committee on the Conduct of the War, Vol. II., p. 165. This was his opinion after the first attack, and upon it he based all his abuse of me for not accepting the invitation. To show what Fort Fisher really was as a military work I will call Porter as my first witness. After it had been taken he thus describes it to the Secretary of the Navy in his official report, dated Jan. 26, 1864:-- These works are tremendous. I was in Fort Malakoff a few days after it surrendered to the French and English; the combined armies of the two nations were many months capturing that stronghold, and it won't compare, either in size or strength, to Fort Fisher. Report of the Committee on the Conduct of the War, Vol. II., p. 184. How about its having been devised to invite soldiers to come in and take possession of it?

Letter from three good little boys. the Richmond Whig of the twenty-ninth of January, published the following Letter from three good little boys, in which, under cover of a facetious style, the desperation of the rebel army was disclosed, and the government condemned for its inefficiency and retention of incompetent agents: out in the field, January 26, 1864. dear Pa: We take our Pen in Hand to write You a letter. We have Got something to say to You. It is Bad News, and we are sorry to say it. But it is the Fact. And we Hope You won't get Very Madd with us for telling it, for It is the Real Truth, and we don't mean to Hert your Feelings by telling it. Because, if we could help telling It, we wouldn't Tell It. Dear Pa, the truth is this. Us Boys that You sent into the Field to Fight the Yankees are getting Mighty Hungry, and the Reason of it All is that we don't get Enough to Eat. Now You Know that Boys that don't get a Plenty to Eat can't Fight. They can Fight some

I saw the soldiers come to-day From battle fields afar; No conqueror rode before their way On his triumphal car; But captains, like themselves, on foot, And banners sadly torn, All grandly eloquent though mute, In pride and glory borne. Those banners soiled with dust and smoke, And rent by shot and shell, That through the serried phalanx broke, What terrors could they tell! What tales of sudden pain and death In every cannon's boom, When even the bravest held his breath And waited for his doom. By hands of steel those flags were waved Above the carnage dire, Almost destroyed yet always saved, 'Mid battle-clouds and fire. Though down at times, still up they rose And kissed the breeze again, Dread tokens to the rebel foes Of true and loyal men. And here the true and loyal still Those famous banners bear; The bugles wind, the fifes blow shrill, And clash the cymbals where, With decimated ranks, they come, And through the

They also destroyed twenty-four thousand pounds of pork, and large quantities of oats and corn, and captured a sloop and schooner, and two hundred and forty boxes of tobacco, and five Jews, preparing to run the blockade, and returned without the loss of a man. Benj. F. Butler, Major-General Commanding. A national account. Norfolk, Va., Tuesday, January 26, 1864. One of the most brilliant exploits that has been chronicled for some time past, was accomplished yesterday by some of our troops, whose bravery is only equalled by their patriotism. Late on Sunday afternoon a gunboat expedition started from this city, composed of the army gunboats Gen. Jessup, Smith Briggs, and Flora Temple. The whole was under the command of General Graham. Before daylight, on the following morning, the boats had proceeded as far up the James River as Bran

Nashville, January 26, 1864. whereas, in consequence of the disloyalty of a large majority of the persons filling the offices established by the constitution and laws of Tennessee, and of the majority of the people of the State, and as part of the legitimate fruits of secession and rebellion against the Government of the United States, the people of Tennessee have been deprived for nearly three years of all free, regular, and legitimate government, and they are now without a Governor chosen in the ordinary way, Legislature, representation in the Congress of the United States, and without courts, judges, chancellors, and the various legitimately authorized county officers: And Whereas, it is believed that a majority of the people of the State are ready and desire to return to their allegiance to the Government of the United States, and to recognize and restore the State Government to the exercise of
Doc. 64.-operations in New-Mexico. camp Florilla, near Fort Canby, N. M., January 26, 1864. The cumminating point in this expedition has been reached at last by the very successful operations of our troops at Cañon de Chelly. Colonel Kit Carson left Fort Canby on the sixth instant, with a command of four hundred men, twenty of whom were mounted. He had a section of mountain artillery with him, and taking the road via Puebla, Colorado, he started for Cañion de Chelly. He gave orders to Captain Pheiffer, with his command of one hundred men, to enter the cañon at the east opening, while he himself intended to enter it at the mouth, or west opening, and by this movement he expected that both columns would meet in the cañon on the second day, as it was supposed to be forty miles in length. Captain Pheiffer's party proceeded two days through the cañon, fighting occasionally; but although the Indians frequently fired on them from the rocky walls above, the balls were spent lo
e express conditions; and then only to persons whose public position seemed to be a full guarantee against abuse of the privilege, and when requests could not properly be refused. They were given to reporters of the public press, and to prominent officers of States, whose troops were in the field. Upon representations made by officers of the Treasury Department at Alexandria that there would be difficulty in receiving such property except under the Treasury regulations of the twenty-sixth of January, 1864, those regulations were officially promulgated for that purpose at Alexandria and at New Orleans. These orders were strictly enforced by all officers connected with or representing the army. There was no permission whatever given to any person to trade, to dispose of, or transport private property; no privilege of this kind was recognized under any circumstances. Every dollar's worth of property that came into the hands of the army during this campaign was either appropriat
