y wounded, acting with efficiency as ordnance officer; Captain Tank and Lieutenants Fisk and Stanmeyer, both wounded, and Lieutenant R. R. Hyams, who as quartermaster and commissary exhibited much energy. As I was on board the Queen during the action, the conduct of the officers and men was under my own eye, and I cheerfully endorse the commendation of Captain McCloskey. He also speaks highly of the intrepid promptness and skill of his pilots and engineers, and of the conduct of Assistant Surgeon Blanchard, who manifested much care and coolness, coming on the gun-deck in the midst of the action and personally supervising the removal of the wounded. Sergeant Magruder, of the signal corps, also deserves mention for having rendered very important services in the discharge of the responsible duties devolved upon him. Captain Pierce, of the Webb, verbally reports to me that his pilots and engineers behaved themselves with coolness and bravery, and discharged their duties with promp

; which, it is said, the government issued to them. About midday the City Battalion was marched down Main Street to disperse the crowd. Congress has resolved to adjourn on the 20th April. The tax bill has not passed both Houses yet. Gen. Blanchard has been relieved of his command in Louisiana. He was another general from Massachusetts. April 4 It is the belief of some that the riot was a premeditated affair, stimulated from the North, and executed through the instrumentality of recover. He has his faults, but upon the whole is no doubt well qualified for the position he occupies. I trust he will recover. The destruction of the Queen of the West, and of another of our steamers, is confirmed. Is not Pemberton and Blanchard responsible? The loss of two guns and forty men the other day, on the Nansemond, is laid at the door of Major-Gen. French, a Northern man!

e to the other, and called the silent witness. This toy was taken possession of by Colonel Moore of Sheridan's staff, and is now owned by his son. Bargains were at once struck for nearly all the articles in the room; and it is even said that some mementos were carried off for which no coin of the republic was ever exchanged. The sofa remains in possession of Mrs. Spillman, Mr. McLean's daughter, who now lives in Camden, West Virginia. Colonel Marshall presented the boxwood ink-stand to Mr. Blanchard of Baltimore. Of the three impressions of the terms of surrender made in General Grant's manifold writer, the first and third are believed to have been accidentally destroyed. No trace of them has since been discovered; the second is in the possession of the New York Commandery of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, which purchased it recently from the widow of General Parker.

The question was put in this form: Shall the words moved to be stricken out stand? and on this question the Ays and Noes were required and taken, with the following result: N.

ar to have been half so severe. They had more killed, but fewer wounded. The explanation is obvious. They bushwhacked and our men fought in line of battle. They sought the cover of trees and skirmished successfully, while our troops were exposed. Many of our casualties may be charged to sharp-shooters posted in trees. It is surprising that our officers did not adopt the crafty tactics of the enemy. We captured a few Georgians and Louisiana volunteers, including a Louisiana major, of Blanchard's brigade. The strength of the enemy opposed to us has not been satisfactorily ascertained. The prisoners assert that Longstreet's division and part of Huger's were in the field. It is probable, as we know that Longstreet's and Huger's divisions, supported by Hill's corps, hold that line. We lost no prominent field-officers, but many line-officers were wounded — several killed. Two of Hooker's aids had horses killed under them, and Lieut. Whiting, aid to Gen. Robinson, lost an arm
h struck the road and earth near them, all within half an hour. About three o'clock on Sunday afternoon a solid shot from one of the enemy's batteries passed between Colonel Ingraham, commanding a brigade in General Emory's division, and Colonel Blanchard, One Hundred and Sixty-second New-York. They were conversing together, some distance apart, and a little in front of the line of battle, when the shot struck the ground a few yards in advance, ricochetting completely over Colonel BlanchardColonel Blanchard's head, horse and all, afterward striking the ground between the Colonels. It was a very narrow escape. As the ball buried itself in the ground the men set up a cheer. It was repeatedly told me by several officers that the soldiers in line of battle would make a remark or criticise every shot and shell of interest, and many of their expressions being excellent jokes, they would be received with roars of laughter. There was a perfect absence of fear among the men. And while I am upon the su

Wave was burnt by the enemy, and the principal portion of her cargo, which had been transferred to a flat, captured by us. A despatch was found by General Dwight, in which Gov. Moore tells General Taylor to retreat slowly to Alexandria, and if pressed to retire to Texas. General l)wight will push well forward to-day, and probably halt to-morrow, to continue his march or return, according to circumstances . An expedition, consisting of the One Hundred and Sixty-second New-York, Lieutenant-Colonel Blanchard, one section of artillery, and Barrett's company B, First Louisiana cavalry, accompanied by Captain Durham, Assistant Adjutant-General, and First Lieutenant Harwood, Engineers, (both of my staff;) was sent out yesterday morning by way of Barre's Landing, to examine the Bayou Courtableau, in the direction of Bute-a-la-Rose. Last night Captain Dunham reported the road impassable, four miles beyond Barre's Landing, and that the expedition had captured the steamer Ellen, in a small b
sition behind the barricade, and the battalion of sharpshooters drawn in. The artillery of the enemy had ceased to play upon us, except at slow intervals, and a part of their (Tyler and Jones) commands having already returned, I dispatched Lieutenant Blanchard, of my staff, to ascertain their situation, who reported that he met them returning with the balance of their commands in good order. I placed them in position and awaited orders. I am unable to give as accurate an account of my left as ring themselves with distinguished gallantry. To each of my staff, Major Winchester (who, notwithstanding his leg was badly hurt from the fall of his horse when shot Friday evening, continued in the field until the close of the fight), Lieutenants Blanchard and Bate, I am indebted for their hearty co-operation and prompt execution of my orders, notwithstanding each was unhorsed by shots from the enemy. Also, to James E. Rice, Brigade Ordnance Officer, I am indebted for the prompt discharge

Referring to reinforcements that joined General Johnston after he had reached the vicinity of Richmond, May, 1862, says: He was reinforced by Huger's division, consisting of three brigades under Generals Mahone, Armistead and Wright. One of Huger's brigades, preceding and including Seven Pines, was commanded by General Blanchard. This brigade may have been subsequently known as Wright's brigade. Page 71. Enumerating the Confederate forces engaged at Sharpsburg, says: The command of General Longstreet at that time embraced six brigades under D. R. Jones, the two under General Hood and one unattached under General Evans. His other three brigades were temporarily detached under General R. H. Anderson. There were six brigades so detached under Anderson. His own (Anderson's) division of three brigades and th
