rned to the Senate, it was concurred in,, on motion of Mr. Trumbull, and was passed Aug 6. by a vote of 24 against 11. The President's signature to it made it law on the same day. This was the first act of Congress, after the beginning of the war, concerning the emancipation of slaves and the confiscation of property. We have already observed the peace propositions of Vallandigham, of Ohio, and Wood, of New York. 2 Volume I., page 578. These were followed, later in the session, after Clarke, of New Hampshire, had asked and obtained leave of the Senate to offer a joint resolution declaratory of the determination of Congress to maintain the supremacy of the Government and integrity of the Union, by propositions for securing peace and reconciliation by friendly measures. One of these, offered in the House of Representatives by S. S. Cox, of Ohio, proposed the appointment of a committee, composed of one member of Congress from each State, who should report to the House, at the nex

and was not disappointed. Report of General Tyler to General Shields, June 12, 1862. The National troops employed in third struggle were the Seventh Indiana; Fifth, Seventh, and Twenty-ninth Ohio; and the First Virginia, with sections of Captains Clarke and Huntington's batteries, on the right; and the Eighty-fourth and One Hundred and Tenth Pennsylvania; Sixty-sixth Ohio, and sections of Captains Clarke, Huntington, and Robinson's batteries, and a company each of the Fifth and Sixty-sixth Captains Clarke, Huntington, and Robinson's batteries, and a company each of the Fifth and Sixty-sixth Ohio, as skirmishers, on the left, which was the key of the position. In the engagement and retreat the Confederates captured four hundred and fifty prisoners, and eight hundred muskets. So ended the battle of Port Republic; Port Republic is a small village on the eastern bank of the south fork of the Shenandoah River, pleasantly situated on a plain. It is a post village of Rockingham County. and Jackson telegraphed to Richmond, saying--Through God's blessing the enemy near Port Republic w
campments on the morning of the 21st of July. From personal observation on the march, on the morning of the 21st of July, I know that, generally, the haversacks of the men were filled — whether properly or not, I do not know. Regimental officers should be held accountable for that. During the battle, and following it, I noticed many filled haversacks, canteens, blankets, and other property, lying on the ground, their owners having doubtless thrown them away to get rid of the labor of carrying them on so hot a day, and under such trying circumstances. I beg leave to call your attention to the reports of Lieutenants Bell, Hawkins, and Curtis. The duties they performed were highly important, and all who are acquainted with the difficulties under which they labored and overcame, will know that they acted with judgment and energy, and for the best interests of the Government. I am, sir, very respectfully, H. F. Clarke, Capt. and Com. Subs. Capt. James B. Fry, Ass't Adj.-Gen.

I will leave nothing undone to gain it. Gen. Scott has been trying to work a traverse to have — made inspector-general of my army and of the army. I respectfully declined the favor. . . .

Clarke, chief-commissary; Barry, chief of artillery; Meade will be senior topographer; Dr. Tripler, medical director. I have applied for Kingsbury as chief of ordnance, and for Armstrong and Sweitzer as aides-de-camp. I dine with the President to-morrow, where I presume I shall meet Prince Napoleon. . . . You would laugh if you could see the scores of queer letters I receive in these days. I am sorry to say I do not answer any of them; I do no writing myself, except to you. . . . I was in the

Clarke, commissary of subsistence, joined my staff, and at once entered upon his duties as chief orcoran and Runyon. In the important task of designating and establishing depots of supplies Col. Clarke was ably seconded by his assistants, Col. Amos Beckwith, C. S., U. S. A.; Lieut.-Col. George l of the above-mentioned officers discharged their duties was given in the detailed report of Col.
