led to all praise for having so controlled the affairs of the country that, when his successor arrived, all things were so disposed that a civil form of government was an easy matter of adjustment. Colonel Mason was relieved by General Riley some time in April, and left California in the steamer of the 1st May for Washington and St. Louis, where he died of cholera in the summer of 1850, and his body is buried in Bellefontaine Cemetery. His widow afterward married Major (since General) Don Carlos Buell, and is now living in Kentucky. In overhauling the hold of the steamer California, as she lay at anchor in Monterey Bay, a considerable amount of coal was found under some heavy duplicate machinery. With this, and such wood as had been gathered, she was able to renew her voyage. The usual signal was made, and we all went on board. About the 1st of March we entered the Heads, and anchored off San Francisco, near the United States line-of-battle-ship Ohio, Commodore T. Ap Catesby Jo

g the Commissary Department by four captains, to which were promoted Captains Shiras, Blair, Sherman, and Bowen. I was ordered to take post at St. Louis, and to relieve Captain A. J. Smith, First Dragoons, who had been acting in that capacity for some months. My commission bore date September 27, 1850. I proceeded forthwith to the city, relieved Captain Smith, and entered on the discharge of the duties of the office. Colonel N. S. Clarke, Sixth Infantry, commanded the department; Major D. C. Buell was adjutant-general, and Captain W. S. Hancock was regimental quartermaster; Colonel Thomas Swords was the depot quartermaster, and we had our offices in the same building, on the corner of Washington Avenue and Second. Subsequently Major S. Van Vliet relieved Colonel Swords. I remained at the Planters' House until my family arrived, when we occupied a house on Chouteau Avenue, near Twelfth. During the spring and summer of 1851, Mr. Ewing and Mr. Henry Stoddard, of Dayton, Ohio,

arrived out in the spring, by which time I had caused to be erected a small frame dwelling-house, a barn, and fencing for a hundred acres. This helped to pass away time, But afforded little profit; and on the 11th of June, 1859, I wrote to Major D. C. Buell, assistant adjutant-general, on duty in the War Department with Secretary of War Floyd, inquiring if there was a vacancy among the army paymasters, or any thing in his line that I could obtain. He replied promptly, and sent me the printed erintendent of the proposed college, and inviting me to come down to Louisiana as early as possible, because they were anxious to put the college into operation by the 1st of January following. For this honorable position I was indebted to Major D. C. Buell and General G. Mason Graham, to whom I have made full and due acknowledgment. During the civil war, it was reported and charged that I owed my position to the personal friendship of Generals Bragg and Beauregard, and that, in taking up arm

Vicksburg, Mississippi, August 24, 1866. Brigadier-General Don Carlos Buell arrived at Louisville about the middle of November, with orders teport in person to Major-General H. W. Halleck at St. Louis. I accompanied General Buell to the camp at Nolin, where he reviewed and inspected the camp and troops under the command of General A. McD. McCook, and on our way back General Buell inspected the regiment of Hazzard at Elizabethtown. I then turned over my command to so serious to their cause as we did. From the time I had left Kentucky, General Buell had really made no substantial progress, though strongly reinforced beyond nelson, when he let go Bowling Green and fell back hastily to Nashville; and, on Buell's approach, he did not even tarry there, but continued his retreat southward.

General Grant also explained to me that General Buell had reached the bank of the Tennessee Rivethat the enemy's loss could not be much less.

on the left; but I believe neither General Grant nor Buell exercised command, the one over the other; each of tr, reorganizing and rearranging the whole army. General Buell's Army of the Ohio constituted the centre; Gener and Davies. General George H. Thomas was taken from Buell, to command the right. McClernand's and Lew Wallacead fallen at Shiloh. But we were also reinforced by Buell's and Pope's armies; so that before the end of April the Army of the Ohio; and that whole army under General Buell was turned east along the Memphis & Charleston rlo, with which he afterward fairly outmanoeuvred General Buell, and forced him back from Chattanooga to Louisviy Huntsville to Bridgeport, under the command of General Buell. In like manner, the Army of the Tennessee was ght for Nashville and Louisville, and compelling General Buell to fall back to the Ohio River at Louisville. h he afterward obtained the command, in place of General Buell, who was removed.

The same was urged upon his successor, but the lateness of the season or other causes prevented further operations after the battle of Stone River. Last spring, when your movements on the Mississippi River had drawn out of Tennessee a large force of the enemy, I again urged General Rosecrans to take advantage of that opportunity to carry out his projected plan of campaign, General Burnside being ready to cooperate, with a diminished but still efficient force.

General Buell and his officers had been subjected to a lce--a letter asking me to do something for General Buell. I answered him frankly, telling him of mted order of the War Department, assigning General Buell to my command. Colonel Fry, as General BuGeneral Buell's special friend, replied that he was very anxious that I should make specific application for the services of General Buell by name, and inquired what I proposed to offer him. To this I answereot with propriety press the matter, but if General Buell should be assigned to me specifically I wato the employment of these high officers.

the remainder, and, although I felt a sympathy for their hardships and sufferings as deeply as any man could, yet as nearly all the prisoners who had been captured by us during the campaign had been sent, as fast as taken, to the usual depots North, they were then beyond my control. There were still about two thousand, mostly captured at Jonesboroa, who had been sent back by cars, but had not passed Chattanooga. These I ordered back, and offered General Hood to exchange them for Stoneman, Buell, and such of my own army as would make up the equivalent; but I would not exchange for his prisoners generally, because I knew these would have to be sent to their own regiments, away from my army, whereas all we could give him could at once be put to duty in his immediate army. Quite an angry correspondence grew up between us, which was published at the time in the newspapers, but it is not to be found in any book of which I have present knowledge, and therefore is given here, as illustrat
