Jones from this Department to pass the lines of the Confederate armies, and the lines of the Confederate States, are granted by my direction, evidences of which are ohile congratulating myself on the evidence of some firmness and independence in the new Secretary, I received the following note: Richmond, July 19th, 1862. Mr. J. B. Jones. Sir :--I have just been directed by the Secretary of War that he has turned over the whole business of passports to Gen. Winder, and that applications foI simply uttered a defiance, and he departed, boiling over with rage. July 23 To-day I received the following note from the Secretary: July 23D, 1862. J. B.

nt soldiers lose a great many muskets. We should not have arms enough on the Potomac, were it not for those captured at Harper's Ferry. An order will be issued, making every man responsible for the safe-keeping of his gun. October 18 Major-Gen. Jones telegraphs from Knoxville, Tenn., that a wounded officer arrived from Kentucky, reports a victory for Bragg, and that he has taken over 10,000 prisoners. We shall soon have positive news. A letter from Admiral Buchanan states that he hasd nations, respecting noncombatants, and exempting private property from pillage, it would be a still more formidable war than that now waged against us. I have just received the following note from the Secretary: October 17th, 1862. Mr. J. B. Jones will hereafter refer all applicants for passports to Gen. Smith's Adjutant-General, and grant none from the department. George W. Randolph, Sec. of War. Neither the acting Assistant Secretary, nor Mr. Kean, with his whole alphabet of

ast our batteries the other day, and, after an engagement, sunk her. We captured all the officers and men. February 27 No news from any quarter to-day. Gen. Joseph E. Johnston is discontented with his command in the West. The armies are too far asunder for co-operative action; and, when separated, too weak for decisive operations. There is no field there for him, and he desires to be relieved, and assigned to some other command. I was surprised to receive, to-day, the following very official letter from the Secretary of War: Richmond, Va., Feb. 27th, 1863. J. B. Jones, Esq. Sir :--The President has referred your letter of the 19th inst. to this department. In reply, you are respectfully informed that it is not deemed judicious, unless in the last extremity, to resort to the means of supply suggested. The patriotic motives that dictated the suggestion are, however, appreciated and acknowledged. Your obedient servant, James A. Seddon, Secretary of War.

thern papers assert that their gun-boats have all passed through the canal opposite Vicksburg. This is not trueyet. Lincoln is now Dictator, his Congress having given him power to call out all the male population between the ages of twenty and thirty-five years, and authority to declare martial law whenever he pleases. The Herald shouts for Lincoln — of course. We must fight and pray, and hope for revolution and civil war in the North, which may occur any day. Our cavalry, under Gen. Jones, has done some brilliant skirmishing recently in the vicinity of Winchester; and as soon as the March winds dry the earth a little, I suppose Hooker will recommence the On to Richmond. We shall be weaker the next campaign, but our men are brave. March 5 Yesterday the government seized the flour in the mills and warehouses; and now the price has risen from $30 to $40 per barrel. I wrote to the Commissary, in view of the dissatisfaction of the people, and to prevent disturbances, ad
November 27. A delegation of Cherokees, headed by Captain Smith Christy, acting Chief, and including Thomas Pegg, a leading Indian, and William P. Ross, with Rev. J. B. Jones as interpreter, went in state to pay their respects to General McNeil, the district commander at Fort Smith, Ark., by order of an act of their National Council. The act recited the sufferings, and asked additional protection to the nation and authority to raise an Indian cavalry regiment. After the presentation of their credentials, Chief Christy arose and said that their national council had instructed them to call and pay their respects to the Commanding General, express their confidence in his ability and bravery, and to state the condition and wants of their suffering people. He then recapitulated the contents of the documents they were preparing to present. The greatest annoyance was from roving banditti, who desolated their homes and murdered their people. Their lives and those of their families

dful of cowardly Yankees, were disposed to make the ninety unfortunate prisoners captured when Dahlgren was killed, to feel the weight of their hatred and vengeance, by executing the whole of them. It was considered in cabinet meeting, and Seddon, the Confederate Secretary of War, wrote a letter to General Lee, asking his views concerning the matter, in which he said the contemplated murder had the sanction of the President [Davis], the Cabinet, and General Bragg. A Rebel War Clerk's [J. B. Jones] Diary, March 5, 1864. The Richmond press, in the interest of the Conspirators, strongly recommended the measure. Let them die, said the Richmond Whig, not by court-martial, not as prisoners, but as hostes human generis by general order from the President, Commander-in-Chief. General Lee had a good reason for not sanctioning such a proceeding then, for his own son was a captive, and held for retaliation whenever any Union prisoner should be put to death, and the plea that prevailed ag

Fry, Fourth Kentucky regiment, was slightly wounded whilst his regiment was gallantly resisting the advance of the enemy, during which time Gen. Zollicoffer fell from a shot from his (Col.
