Still, it is not recorded corded that he was ever again put in command of an important expedition. Simultaneously with his advance from Vicksburg, Sherman sent some gunboats and a detachment up the Yazoo against Yazoo City; which did not succeed in again capturing that city, but claimed to have done considerable damage, with a loss of but 50 men. Yazoo City was taken and occupied soon afterward by a Union force consisting of the 11th Illinois, Col. Schofield, 8th Louisiana (Black), Col. Coates, and 200 of the 1st Mississippi cavalry (Black). Col. Osband , who had dropped down the river from above, was here attacked March 5. by a far superior Rebel force under Ross and Richardson, and a desperate street-fight ensued, in which our loss was 130; that of the enemy reported by them at 50, and by our side at 300. They carried a good part of the town, but could not take the fort, and were finally repelled by reenforcements from below. The place was evacuated, by order from Vicksb
all occasions, rendered me valuable assistance, exhibiting coolness and judgment, which marked him as a young officer of superior talent and worthy promotion. Captain William Jessup and Captain Alexander C. Rossman were both entitled to muster out on the fourteenth of November last, yet displayed the most admirable gallantry during the campaign, but more especially at Buckhead and Reynolds's plantation. The service is not ornamented with more worthy captains. Captain Dalzell and Lieutenant Coates, of the First Ohio independent squadron, have a soldierly body of men, and have proved faithful and efficient during the whole campaign. Lieutenant Joseph E. Overturf, commanding company H, displayed great personal gallantry at Reynolds's Plantation, and commanded his company in such splendid manner, that I am happy to recommend his promotion to Captain in acknowledgment of his services. The regiment is now in camp near King's Bridge, Georgia. The various reports in detail req

Appendix Y Pamphlet published by Colonel Meade in reply to General Doubleday's letter in the New York times of April 1, 1883. see letter of April 2, 1864, page 186, Vol. II. (for General Doubleday's letter see Appendix X) Did General Meade desire to retreat at the battle of Gettysburg? George Meade, formerly Captain and Aide-De-Camp and Brevet Lieut.-Col. U. S. Army (Philadelphia: Porter & Coates. 1883) I did not see or hear of the letter of General Abner Doubleday, published in the New York Times of April 1st, until my attention was called to it nearly a month afterward. But, in view of the fact of my previous silence, when General Doubleday has discussed the same topic, that does not account for my noticing it now or at all. I begin, therefore, with an apology for breaking that long silence, induced by the conviction that he had manifestly to the world failed to substantiate the assertions made in his history of the battle of Gettysburg. I have been actuated, heretofore

eace. Morning came, and we advanced as per orders, at seven o'clock, but proceeded only a short distance when this regiment was ordered to the rear, the train having been attacked by a squad of rebel cavalry, and for the remainder of the day we acted in the capacity of rear guard, but did not encounter any enemy, they having gone to their advance to support a battery which was operating against our front. After one o'clock the enemy fell back in the direction of Canton, learning that Colonel Coates' Second brigade, First division, would effect a flank movement on them. Previous to our entering Jackson a flag of truce was sent out by the citizens with a request that we should not shell the city, reporting no enemy there, so we marched through their once prosperous but now desolate capital, with banners flying, filling the air with the melodious sounds of martial music, amidst the prolonged cheers of the men, and arrived at the river on the southeast of the city, where we went in

Matthew's Diary of an Invalid. If you devote yourself entirely to sight-seeing, a fortnight will suffice for Naples,—though I should be well pleased to be there months, and to muse over the remains of Old Time. . . . At Rome, you will see Greene immediately. He knows more about Italy than any person I know. He is a finished scholar, and much my friend. He will receive you warmly. I leave Berlin to-morrow for Frankfort and Heidelberg. If you can write me while in London, address care of Coates & Co., Bread Street; otherwise, address simply Boston. How this sounds! I would gladly stay longer, if I could; but I must close this charmed book. I have spent more than five thousand dollars; and I cannot afford to travel longer. I wish you a deeper purse than I have, health to enjoy Europe, and the ability to profit by what you see. It is a glorious privilege, that of travel. Let us make the most of it. Gladden my American exile by flashes from the Old World. I will keep you advised

Literary notices. History of the civil war in America. By the Comte de Paris. Vol. III. Philadelphia: Porter & Coates. We are indebted to the publishers for a copy of this book, which is beautifully gotten up in the best style of the bookmaker's art. We have also received (we presume through the courtesy of the distinguished author) a beautiful copy of the French edition of the work so far as completed. The reviews of the former volumes which we have published have given our readers an idea of the general character of the work. But while reserving for the future a detailed review of this third volume, we must say that the Count has had much richer material with which to write this volume, that he seems to have made a better use of his material, and that it seems to be fairer to the Confederates than its predecessors. And yet when we come to discuss it in detail (as we hope to do by the pens of some of our most competent military critics), we expect to show that the
Dr. Coates, of Philadelphia, reached this city yesterday. He reports that his life was in peril when he left there, and that the mob had offered a reward of $10,000 for the apprehension of Mr. Robert Tyler, son of ex-President Tyler. The day of retribution will come.
ed was 96. We brought all our wounded away with us when we fell back. Federal loss at Fort Donelson. The Nashville Times (Federal) says: The heaviest loss to any one of the Federal regiments at Fort Donelson, was the 11th Illinois, which went into the fight with five hundred men and officers, and came out with one hundred and seventy. Two companies in this regiment, company K, Capt. Carter, of Lasalle, went into action with sixty-two men and came out with nine; company H, Capt. Coates, of Pern, went in with fifty-one men and came out with ten. This will give an idea of the hard fighting and terrible loss sustained. Nashville.[from the New Orleans Picayune.] The Federals have not altogether suppressed communication from Nashville — at least we see that letters dated at that city still get through to New Orleans. We have had sight of one dated on the 9th, addressed by a lady in that city to a portion of her family here, which enable as to correct most favorab
