Bailey Myers; Acting Assistant Quarter-master, Capt. Peter Hagerty; and Second Lieut., George H. Butler; Major Richard S. Fay, Military Secretary.--N. Y. Commercial, May 31. The Philadelphia Evening Journal of to-day says: We have it from good authority that there are, at this time, about five hundred Indians stationed at Harper's Ferry, with the rebel, or traitor army. If this be the mode of warfare these blood-thirsty, scalping devils are to be brought into the fight, our friends in the South must not consider it all unkind if we accept the proffered services of the ten regiments of free negroes in Canada and the North,

e after sunset. When we had marched about two miles up the railroad we halted. In the two forward cars was a company of picked men of the Sixth Regiment, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Watson, with my military secretary, the late Richard S. Fay, acting as his aid. This company was detached to go to Frederick to arrest Ross Winans, and bring him down to the Relay House, and then by the shortest road to take him to Annapolis. All of this was done with promptness and despatch, and in a soldier as not to understand it otherwise than in the light of a reproof. At least, I desire a personal interview with you and with the President before I accept further service. This will be handed to you by my friend and aide-de-camp, R. S. Fay, Jr., who knows its contents, and is able to represent me fully to you. Very truly yours, Benj. F. Butler, Brigadier-General Commanding. After I got to Fortress Monroe I waited from the 22d of May till the 4th day of June, when, the order

and set at work. On the next day I was notified by an officer in charge of the picket line next Hampton that an officer bearing a flag of truce desired to be admitted to the fort to see me. As I did not wish to allow officers of the enemy to come inside the fort just then and see us piling up sand bags to protect the weak points there, I directed the bearer of the flag to be informed that I would be at the picket line in the course of an hour. Accompanied by two gentlemen of my staff, Major Fay and Captain Haggerty, neither now living, I rode out to the picket line and met the flag of truce there. It was under charge of Major Carey, who introduced himself, at the same time pleasantly calling to mind that we last met at the Charleston convention. Major Carey opened the conversation by saying: I have sought to see you for the purpose of ascertaining upon what principles you intend to conduct the war in this neighborhood. I expressed my willingness to answer, and the major said: I

lonel Higginson wrote of Wendell Phillips: That which really attracted him was public life and not the bar, and nothing attracted him more. His dream would have been a life in the United States Senate, as he himself told me. March 22, 1861 Dearest Mother: Did you ever hear of George Smalley [the newspaper correspondent], a young lawyer who once lived here and was at one time engaged to our pretty Susan Gray? He is now in Boston; never heard Wendell Phillips speak till the time of Richard S. Fay's row, then fell desperately in love with him and in all the dangers since was his bodyguard, never leaving him and watching many nights in his house. This he enjoyed thoroughly, being a trained athlete and a natural soldier. When I saw him at Wendell's planning with us to mount guard, and then turning to pretty Phoebe-- to arrange little plans to keep everybody still and spare Mrs. P.'s nerves, I thought to myself that the adopted daughter might prove the next attraction, and now it t

He had been given up by the doctors weeks before, but so great was his interest in the birth of the animals that his strong will kept him alive. They were born in the morning; in the afternoon they were washed and brought to his room. Each in turn was lifted on the bed, and after he had examined them carefully, he laid back on his pillow, and in a few hours passed away. Richard S. Fay, of Salem, bought them when they were six weeks old, and paid six hundred dollars for the pair. He also was the importer of the Bremen goose. His Creampot cows were famous throughout the country. His daughter, Harriett Jaques, made butter, before the Legislature, from the cream of these cows in thirty seconds, and served it at table then and there, the governor being present. Captain Kidd was credited with burying treasures on the place, and even as late as during the occupancy o
