The Confederate gun-boat Arkansas. by her commander, Isaac N. Brown, Captain, C. S. N. After the Appomattox capitulation, the observance of which, nobly maintained by General Grant, crowns him as the humane man of the age, I took to the plow, as a better implement of reconstruction than the pen; and if I take up the latter now, it is that justice may be done to the men and the memory of the men of the Arkansas. On the 28th of May, 1862, I received at Vicksburg a telegraphic order from

You will, therefore, do a good service by employing a competent man to proceed to that city and procure the desired information, to be communicated through you to this Department.
