town in order to secure that of Norfolk. General Huger, who occupied that place with his division, had succeeded, like Magruder, in deceiving his adversaries in regard to his numerical weakness, and the Federal authorities had not dared to send Burnside's corps, then stationed at Roanoke Island, in North Carolina, against him. There is no doubt but that these troops would only have had to make a simple demonstration, without even going entirely through so difficult a country, to precipitate thessroads. The Confederate army was encamped around Richmond, where it was receiving reinforcements forwarded in haste from every section of the country. Huger arrived with twelve thousand men from Norfolk; Branch, whose defeat at Newberne by Burnside we have noticed, brought nine thousand from North Carolina, and others were yet to follow. The reconnaissances of the Federal army had revealed the fact that the abandonment of Bottom's Bridge was the last step in Johnston's retreat. The latte

ning to Virginia, where events were taking place, the influence of which was to be felt even in the Far West, we must retrace our steps to narrate operations, at once military and naval, of which a portion of the coast of the Confederate States had been the theatre during the early part of 1862. We followed these operations upon the coast of North Carolina and in the Gulf of Mexico up to the spring, a period when they ceased entirely, partly in consequence of the new destination given to Burnside's army, which left Albemarle Sound for the borders of the James, and partly owing to the retreat into the interior of all the Confederate forces stationed on the coast of Louisiana. It remains for us to speak of the combined operations of the fleet called the South Atlantic squadron and of the army of T. W. Sherman, on the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida during the first six months of 1862. In the preceding volume we gave an account of the battle secured to the Federals t

Potomac. It remains for us to record what it had to do on the coast of North Carolina, in order to preserve and extend Burnside's conquests in the inland 606 sea which bears the name of Pamlico Sound, south of Roanoke, and Albemarle Sound, north o the town of Goldsboroa and with all the railway lines of North Carolina. This was the junction of railway lines that Burnside was charged to break up after the capture of Newberne—an operation which might have had a great bearing upon the whole sce proceeding westward toward South Carolina. This line crosses the Roanoke at Weldon, and the Neuse at Goldsboroa. If Burnside had been able to strike the railroad near one of these two points, he would have caused serious trouble to the Confederaleft in special charge of Albemarle Sound, undertook another expedition in the early part of July, at the very time when Burnside was embarking at Newberne. He penetrated into the Roanoke, easily overcame the obstacles which the Confederates had pla

The biographer of Burnside, Mr. Woodbury, has replied to these accusatioed from the Ninth corps. He seeks to justify Burnside for not having crossed the Antietam before twt the outset. It will presently be seen that Burnside, having become general-in-chief, did not have assertion. We give below the entire text of Burnside's order to Franklin.
