en reinforced by 30,000 men from Tennessee; and that we shall soon hear thunder in Richmond. Gen. Lee writes urgently in behalf of Major Tannahill's traffic for supplies, in Northeastern North Carolina and Southeastern Virginia, for the army. Large amounts of commissary stores are obtained in exchange for cotton, tobacco, etc ; but the traffic is in danger of being broken up by the efforts of bureau officials and civilian speculators to participate in it — among them he mentions Major. Brower (Commissary-General's office, and formerly a clerk)-and asks such orders as will be likely to avert the danger. The traffic is with the enemy; but if conducted under the exclusive control of Gen. Lee, it would be of vast benefit to the army. The House of Representatives yesterday passed a singular compensation bill, benefiting two disbursing clerks and others already rich enough. I have written a note to Senator Johnson, of Missouri, hoping to head it off there, or to so amend it as to

The Daily Dispatch: October 1, 1863., [Electronic resource], Letter from a Yankee prisoner in Fort Sumter. (search)
pt. 9, 1863. My Dear Parents: You may be surprised to receive a letter from me dated from this place of "brick and mortar," but so it is. An expedition was fitted out so assault and carry the fort. We reckoned without our host; for in place of we taking, we were taken. The way it was is this: At about 4.30 P. M. Capt. Williams collected the different boats comprising the expedition. Among the number were two boats from the Housatonic. I volunteered to go in the one commanded by Lieut. Brower, (the other was in command of M. M. Butler.) We found that our party was in the third division, and commanded by the Flag Lieutenant S. W., Preston. We were towed within a hundred yards of the fort and cast adrift. We then formed line and proceeded towards Sumter. When within fifty yards of the fort we were hailed and fired upon by the sentinel. We gave a yell and pitched in good style, but it was no go. All of Captain Williams's, one of Lieut. Preston's (our boat,) and one from
