Brisk skirmishing at once began, but Warren was ordered not to seriously engage the Confederates. until French should come up. That officer had taken the wrong road in the morning, and had fallen in and skirmished with JohnsJohnson's division, of Ewell's corps, near the Widow Morris's. This, and other causes of delay, kept him back until night, when Warren was so hard pressed that Meade had been compelled to send troops from the left to his assistance. This failure of French to come up in time almost exhausted Meade's patience, for it frustrated all his plans. Lee had penetrated his designs, and had ample time to make dispositions accordingly. He withdrew Ewell's corps, called up Hill, and concentrated his whole arm

Few escaped. Hooker's victory on that part of the field was complete at twilight, and his troops went into bivouac for the night with cheers and rejoicino'clock, Grant saw that Bragg was weakening his center to support his right, and believing Hooker to be at or near Rossville, he gave Thomas an order to advance. It was promptly obeyed at two o'clock. The divisions of Wood, Baird, Sheridan, and Johnson moved steadily forward, with a double line of skirmishers in front, followed at a short distance by the whole body. Pressing in a continuous line, they created such a panic among the occupants of the rifle-pits at the base of the Ridge, that th

This was for many years the home of Andrew Johnson, and the place of his useful business as the maker of garments, in which, it is said, he excelled, and was consequently prosperous.

Then, turning northward, he reached Marietta on the 22d, with a loss, during the raid, of only about thirty men. On the 20th, the armies had all closed in, converging toward Atlanta. At about four o'clock that day, the Confederates, under Hood, sallied swiftly from their works in heavy force, and struck Hooker's corps, Newton's division of Howard's corps, and Johnson's division of Palmer's corps. The blow was so gallantly received, and vigorously returned, that the assailants. were repulsed and driven back to their intrenchments. Hooker's corps. being uncovered, and on mostly open ground, suffered most severely. The entire National loss in the combat was fifteen hundred men. Sherman estimated Hood's entire loss at not less than five thousand men. He left five. hundred dead on the field, one thousand severely wounded, many prisoners, and several bat

The Convention then nominated Abraham Lincoln for President, and Andrew Johnson, then Military Governor of Tennessee, for Vice-President. At about that time, the Democratic or Opposition party had postponed the assembling of a National Convention to nominate a candidate for the Presidency, which had been appointed for the 4th of July, until the 29th of August, when it was to assemble in the city of Chicago. Meanwhile, there was a notable gathering of emissaries and friends of the Conspirators at the Clifton House, on the Canada side of Niagara Falls, The chie

Andrew Johnson, the Vice-President, was also called upon for a speech. With great vehemence, he said: At the time that the traitors in the Senate of the United States plotted treason against the Government, and entered into a conspiracy more foul, more exeer must be broken; they must be made to feel the penalty of their crimes . . . . Let us commence the work. We have put down these traitors in arms; let us put them down in law, in public judgment, and in the morals of the world. So soon as Mr. Johnson was invested, by the death of Mr. Lincoln, with power to punish the offenders, he pardoned scores of the most conspicuous of them; and during his administration of the affairs of the nation, as President, he used his official and personal powe

According to a proclamation by his successor (Andrew Johnson), there was evidence in the Bureau of Military Justice, that there had been a conspiracy formed by Jefferson Davis, Jacob Thompson, Clement C. Clay, Beverly Tls and traitors against the Government of the United States, harbored in Canada, to assassinate the President, and the Secretary of State, Mr. Seward; See President Johnson's Proclamation, May 2, 1865. In that proclamation, signed by him and by W. Hunter, Acting Secretary of State, a reward of one hundred thousand dollars was oblic survived the shock which might have toppled down, in other lands, an empire or a dynasty. By a seeming oversight in the managers of the assassin scheme, Andrew Johnson, the Vice-President, was not included in their list of victims.
