eral authorities for offensive purposes, even by their partial destruction, if necessary; to urge on the completion of fire-arms out of the materials already partially prepared at the factories, until such time as the machinery could be removed to the interior; and to defend the soil of Virginia from the invasion threatened from that quarter. About this time, there were assembled at Harper's Ferry, 2100 Virginian troops, with 400 Kentuckians, consisting of Imboden's, Rogers', Alburti's, and Graves'. batteries of field artillery, with fifteen guns of the lightest calibre; eight companies of cavalry without drill or battalion organization, and nearly without arms; and a number of companies of infantry, of which three regiments, the 2d, 5th, and 10th, were partially arranged, while the rest had no organization. The Convention had just passed a very necessary law, revoking the commissions of all the militia officers in command of volunteer forces; for their appointments, made long before

r Mr. Lincoln ever experienced a happier moment in his life, as, seizing General Grant's hand, he congratulated him on his success. The Union commander then set out for Sutherland Station, above Petersburg, where he and Meade passed the night of the 3d. Mr. Lincoln afterward went to Richmond; he was curious to see the house Mr. Davis had lived in. With a stride described as long and careless he walked its streets, and asked Is it far to President Davis's house? Upon reaching the house, Captain Graves, aidde-camp to General Weitzel, whose Twenty-fifth Corps first entered the city, states that he took a seat in a chair, remarking, This must have been President Davis's chair, and then jumped up and said in a boyish manner, Come, let us look at the house. Mr. Davis was then in Danville, from which place on the 5th he published a proclamation in which he tells his countrymen not to despond, but, relying on God, meet the foe with fresh defiance and with unconquered and unconquerable heart

urth, and the remaining companies of the Sixth Ohio, were either in the stream or in the act of disembarking. Grant told Ammen that he wanted him to support that battery on the left there, pointing, as he spoke, to Captain Stone's battery; whereupon Colonel Ammen hastened to form such of his troops as had already arrived. While affairs were in this posture, a cannon-ball came whistling between the trees, took the head of one of Grant's orderlies off, shot away the saddle from under Lieutenant Graves, one of Nelson's aids, and went plunging over the bluff into the river below, producing consternation indescribable among the thousands herded about the landing. Don't stop to form, Colonel, don't stop to form, implored a staff officer, hurrying toward Colonel Ammen; we shall all be massacred if you do! There isn't a man out yonder, on the left, between us and the rebels. For God's sake, Colonel, hurry your men forward. As soon as the Thirty-sixth Indiana could be formed, and, w

from Port Hudson, Returning to the Richmond, the welcome signal-guns were heard from the Hartford, whose masts were plainly visible from the crow's nest. They were quickly answered by Captain Alden, and in a few minutes the expedition started. Beside the above-mentioned officers, Mr. Shaw, Acting Master of the Richmond, and Mr. Gabandau, Private Secretary to Admiral Farragut, who came down a week ago, and returned to the Richmond from New-Orleans, put in here to accompany us over. Also Mr. Graves, Purser's Clerk of the Albatross, accompanied the expedition. A negro was taken along as a guide. The party was well armed, and started about noon. They struck the woods some two miles below the river, embarked in two skiffs, and for five miles proceeded through the woods, overflowed with water to a depth ranging from three to thirty feet. It was a novel scene. Silently they paddled through the forest — the only noises heard were the voices of numberless birds and the low rustling of
C. In the assault on the earthworks at Secessionville (James Island), June 16, 1862, the regiment signally distinguished itself. The brigade — in Stevens's Division — was commanded in that action by Colonel Fenton, and the regiment by Lieutenant-Colonel Graves. Supported by the Seventy-ninth New York (Highlanders), the Eighth gained the parapet of the works by a daring and dashing charge, but was obliged to relinquish its foothold with a loss of 48 killed, 120 wounded, and 9 missing, out of easure's Brigade, Welsh's Division — in its occupation of Kentucky, the Siege of Vicksburg, the East Tenenssee campaign, and returned with it to Virginia in the spring of 1864.
