egiment rode at break-neck speed along the line, inquiring for General McClellan, and yelling, as he passed, that four companies of the regiment to which he belongs had been surrounded at Glendale, by twelve hundred secessionists, under O. Jennings Wise. Our men, misapprehending the statement, thought Buckhannon had been attacked, and were in a great state of excitement. The officers of General Schleich's staff were with me on to-day's march, and the younger members, Captains Hunter and Dubois, got off whatever poetry they had in them of a military cast. On Linden when the sun was low, was recited to the hills of Western Virginia in a manner that must have touched even the stoniest of them. I could think of nothing but There was a sound of revelry by night, and as this was not particularly applicable to the occasion, owing to the exceeding brightness of the sun, and the entire absence of all revelry, I thought best not to astonish my companions by exhibiting my knowledge of the

s. To the last, women would go distances to carry the modicum of food between themselves and starvAltior to a suffering Confederate. Should the sons of Virginia ever commit dishonorable acts, grim in iced will be their reception on the farther shores of Styx. They can expect no recognition from the mothers that bore them. The year the war closed the Valley was ravaged with a cruelty surpassing that inflicted on the Palatinate two hundred years agone. That foul act smirched the fame of Dubois and Turenne and public opinion, in what has been deemed a ruder age, forced an apology from the grand monarque. Yet we have seen the report of a Federal General, wherein is recounted the many barns, mills, and other buildings destroyed, concluding with the assertion that a crow flying over the Valley must take rations with him. In the opinion of the admirers of the officer making this report the achievement on which it is based ranks with Marengo. Moreover, this same officer (Lieutenant-

Editorial paragraphs. Our Contributors have placed us under many obligations for the valuable papers they have furnished us, and we beg that they will have patience if their articles do not appear promptly. We have on hand a number of papers, reports, &c., which we are anxious to publish at the earliest possible moment, but we are unable to crowd into our pages more than they will hold. On page 137 (March No.) the types make General Taylor speak of the fame of Dubois, when he wrote Louvois, who was, at the time alluded to, the War Minister of Louis the Fourteenth. Our General agent in the West, General George D. Johnston, continues to be most successful in his canvass, and to meet a cordial reception wherever he goes in Tennessee. In Nashville, Clarksville, and Jackson he has secured more than 350 subscribers. He is just beginning the canvass of Memphis. We again commend him as a gallant soldier and an accomplished gentleman every way worthy of confidence and est

Battery was planted on an eminence, between the Missouri and Kansas troops; and Dubois's Battery, supported by Steele's battalion, was placed about eighty yards to th in time to allow Totten to punish them severely, and full half an hour his and Dubois's Battery made a continual roar. In the mean time, Plummer's battalion, in the The latter, perceiving their peril, retreated in good order, while shells from Dubois's Battery, thrown with precision, fell among the pursuers with such fearful effrvening ridges. Meanwhile the support of Steele's Battery was transferred from Dubois's to Totten's. These had just formed in battle line when a very heavy body of Cas the signal for a renewal of the conflict, and they were speedily silenced by Dubois, supported by Osterhaus and a remnant of the First Missouri.

They were, therefore, permitted to move down the hill within easy range of Dubois's battery, until they had reached the covered position at the foot of the ridge along our entire lines the fiercest and most bloody engagement of the day.

The southern front from Jacinto to Rienzi was under the charge of Colonel DuBois, with a small infantry and cavalry force. The service was most satisfactorily performed, Colonel DuBois showing great vigilance and efficiency.

I was kept constantly advised of the movements of flying bodies of cavalry that were hovering in our front. The wounded, both friend and enemy, are much indebted to Surgeon J. G. F. Holbrook, Medical Director, for his untiring labor in organizing hospitals and providing for their every want. I cannot close this report without paying a tribute to all the officers and soldiers comprising this command. Their conduct on the march was exemplary, and all were eager to meet the enemy. The possibility of defeat I do not think entered the mind of a single individual, and I believe this same
in the tunnel will be 3,873 feet above the sea level, in order to give drainage in each direction; 7 in 1,000 to Goeschenen; and 1 in 1,000 to Airolo. 10 feet daily at each end is the usual rate of progress. The rock is solid at the northern portion, but requires lining and arching at the southern. That already traversed is for the most part mica gneiss and mica schist. The estimated cost is $10,000,000. The work is to be finished within eight years. The boring-machines used are those of Dubois and Francois, the general mode of working being similar to that at Mont Cenis, and the daily progress made appears to be rather more than double. It is feared now (1876) that this work will be abandoned. The Hoosac tunnel, through the mountain of that name, on the railway between Troy, N. Y., and Greenfield, Mass., having a length of 4 3/4 miles, is the longest tunnel in the United States. It is cut through strata of mica slate of varying hardness, and was originally commenced about 185

. March 21. Tuskegee benefit, Hollis Street Theatre. this meeting scored a triumph, not only for the performers, but for the race. Bishop Lawrence presided with much good grace and appreciation. Paul Dunbar was the least distinct. Professor Dubois, of Atlanta University, read a fine and finished discourse. Booker Washington was eloquent as usual, and the Hampton quartet was delightful. At the tea which followed at Mrs. Whitman's studio, I spoke with these men and with Dunbar's wife, a nearly white Woman of refined appearance. I asked Dubois about the negro vote in the South. He thought it better to have it legally taken away than legally nullified. April 17. Kindergarten for the Blind ....
