. Huger, was a sea-going steamer mounting 6 32-pounders and 1 9-inch shell-gun; the steamer Jackson, Lieutenant F. B. Renshaw, mounting 2 32-pounders; the iron-clad ram Manassas, Lieutenant A. F. Warley, mounting 1 32-pounder (in the bow); and two launches, mounting each one howitzer. Two steamers had been converted into Louisiana State gun-boats, with pine and cotton barricades to protect the machinery and boilers: the Governor Moore, Commander Beverley Kennon, and the General Quitman, Captain Grant. All the above steamers, being converted vessels, says Commander Mitchell, were too slightly built for war purposes. The River Defense gun-boats, consisting of six converted tow-boats under the command of a merchant captain named Stephenson, were also ordered to report to Commander Mitchell; but they proved of little assistance to Mortar-schooners engaged against Fort Jackson. Distance of leading schooner from the fort, 2850 yards. Duration of fire, six days. Total number of she

ay seem, would it not really have been better could McClellan have received a check at first, as Grant did at Belmont, rather than to have begun with the brilliant campaign in West Virginia which wontible. As an old French proverb has it, Qui trop embrasse, mal étreint. When, two years later, Grant himself undertook to conduct the decisive campaign against Richmond, at the same time continuingomac the conqueror of Gettysburg. In Washington, Halleck presided as chief of staff, reduced by Grant to a subordinate function, it is true, but a function for which he possessed special aptitude. everything was in readiness. Moreover, the order of the President was not necessary to warrant Grant, already under orders from McClellan, in beginning the campaign, and Grant anticipated that ordeGrant anticipated that order. His debut was as a lightning-stroke. His victory at Fort Donelson, followed by the capitulation of 15,000 Confederates, was the return for Bull Run. The impression created throughout the whole

eport to him. He arrived during the siege of Port Hudson, and rendered valuable service, though without assignment. Immediately afterward, General Banks appointed him chief-of-staff, in which capacity he served until April 16th, 1864, when, coincidently with the disaster on the Red River, but under orders previously issued at Washington, he was deprived of his commission as brigadier-general, and ordered to report by letter as colonel of the 14th infantry. In the following August, Lieutenant-General Grant assigned him to the command of a brigade in the Fifth Army Corps. A month later, worn out at last by the strain of the unmerited suffering he had so long endured in silence, he resigned. And thus it was that this most gallant, accomplished, and faithful soldier was, upon no charges, without a hearing, upon evidence on which no humane or fair-minded man would punish a pet terrier, condemned not merely to long and rigorous imprisonment, but to a punishment so much worse than death

oy the whole of our army on that side of the Chickahominy. Old Cold Harbor Tavern. From a photograph made in 1885. This view is from the south, from the road by which the Confederate left under Stonewall Jackson and D. H. Hill advanced to attack Porter's right. Five roads meet at this point. Old Cold Harbor consists of one or two houses and a smithy. During the battle of Gaines's Mill the tavern was within the Confederate lines. Two years later, during the bloody engagement of General Grant's campaign, it was within the Union lines. The name is sometimes written Cool Harbor, Coal Harbor, or Cool Arbor; but Mr. Burnet, the present owner of the tavern, says that family tradition admits only Cold Harbor.--Editors. Longstreet came into action after 4 o'clock. He thus describes the difficulties before him: In front of me the enemy occupied the wooded slope of Turkey Hill, the crest of which is fifty or sixty feet higher than the plain over which my troops must pass to
