and comfort. In consequence of the disturbances in western North Carolina (see Frankland) and symptoms of disaffection on the southwestern border, and in Kentucky, the Virginia legislature passed a law in October, 1785, subjecting to the penalties of treason all attempts to erect a new State in any part of her territory without permission first obtained of the Assembly. Pennsylvania had passed a similar law. When Admiral Farragut arrived before New Orleans (April 28, 1862), he sent Captain Bailey ashore with a flag to demand the surrender of the city. The military commander (Lovell) turned over the whole matter to the civil authorities. The demand was refused. Meanwhile a force had landed from one of the vessels and hoisted the National flag over the Mint. As soon as they retired a gambler, named William B. Mumford, with some young men, tore down the flag and dragged it through the streets in derision. This act was hailed with acclamations of approval by the Confederates of

Varuna, the In the naval battle on the Mississippi, below New Orleans, the chief efforts of the Confederate gunboats seemed to be directed against the Cayuga, Captain Bailey, and the Varuna, Captain Boggs. the Cayuga had compelled three of the Confederate gunboats to surrender to her, and was fighting desperately, when the Varuna rushed into the thickest of the battle to rescue her. Then the Varuna became the chief object of the wrath of the Confederates. Immediately after passing the forts, reported Captain Boggs, I found myself amid a nest of rebel steamers. As he penetrated this nest, he poured a broadside upon each vessel as he passed. The first that received his fire appeared to be crowded with troops. Her boiler was exploded by a shot, and she drifted ashore. Soon afterwards the Varuna drove three other vessels ashore in flames, and all of them blew up. Very soon afterwards she was fiercely attacked by the ram Governor Moore. commanded by Captain Kennon, formerly of t
