ith the socks arrived last evening. I have sent them to the Stonewall brigade; the number all right-thirty pairs. Including this last parcel of thirty pairs, I have sent to that brigade two hundred and sixty-three pairs. Still, there are about one hundred and forty whose homes are within the enemy's lines and who are without socks. I shall continue to furnish them till all are supplied. Tell the young women to work hard for the brave Stonewallers. And once more, from Orange County, April 21, 1864: Your note with bag of socks reached me last evening. The number was correct-thirty-one pairs. I sent them to the Stonewall brigade, which is not yet supplied. Sixtyone pairs from the ladies in Fauquier have reached Charlottesville, and I hope will be distributed soon. Now that Miss Bettie Brander has come to the aid of my daughters, the supply will soon be increased. The preparations of the Government of the United States for prosecuting the war in 1864 were on a vast scale. Stu

It formed no basis of true and lasting peace, but relieved the rebels from the pressure of our victories, and left them in condition to renew their effort to overthrow the United States Government and subdue the loyal States, whenever their strength was recruited, and any opportunity should offer. Sherman believed that the terms would be accepted as those of a military convention which could not well be disregarded; and in his letter to Johnston of April 21, 1864, he says:-- Although strictly speaking, this is no subject of a military convention, yet I am honestly convinced that our simple declaration of a result will be accepted as good as law everywhere. Of course, I have not a single word from Washington on this or any other point of our agreement, but I know the effect of such a step by us will be universally accepted. I have put forward these facts because I think they justify the President and Secretary of War in their action, and i
Indiana, from the Committee on Military Affairs, to which it was referred, reported it back without amendment. On the eighteenth of April, on motion of Mr. Lane the Senate proceeded to its consideration. The Senate, on the nineteenth, resumed the consideration of the bill, and after debate, in which Mr. Lane, Mr. Fessenden, Mr. Grimes, Mr. Johnson, Mr. Harris, and Mr. Saulsbury participated, it was passed — yeas, thirty-one; nays, seven. It was approved by the President on the twenty-first of April, 1864. No. Lxv.--The Joint Resolution to print the Official Reports of the Armies of the United States. In the Senate, on the twenty-sixth of January, 1864, Mr. Wilson, of Massachusetts, introduced a resolution to provide for the printing of the official reports of the operations of the armies of the United States, which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Military Affairs.

Sir: In the Army and Navy Journal, of the sixteenth instant, there is published a review of the service of the monitors, by Rear-Admiral J. A. Dahlgren. As this review does not give this vessel credit for the service performed by her, I respectfully ask your attention to the subject, in order that the statement may be corrected at the Navy Department. On the twenty-ninth of July, 1863, this vessel went into action with Fort Wagner, followed by the Patapsco; the New Ironsides join

re actually reached Grant at Spotsylvania Courthouse, where, he says: The 13th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th (of May) were consumed in manoeuvring and awaiting the arrival of reinforcements from Washington; and this was before General Lee had been reinforced by a solitary man. In addition to these reinforcements, Mr. Stanton says, on page 46, near the conclusion of his report, that the Governors of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin, tendered 85,000 hundred days men on the 21st of April, 1864, to be raised in twenty days, which were accepted, and the greater part of which were raised, and that they supplied garrisons and relieved experienced troops which were sent to reinforce the armies in the field — some of the hundred days men being sent to the front at their own request. In order, then, to substantiate his assertion that Grant's force for duty in the field at the Wilderness was only 98,000 men, General Badeau must show that Mr. Stanton has lied in the most willful and
