I have also to notice the services of Lieutenant Dent, commanding Robinson's battery, whose fire upon the enemy was incessant and effective. Both officers and men behaved most coolly and gallantly during the day. I have great pleasure in attesting to the gallant and efficient conduct of the following officers: Lieutenant-Colonel McEwen, Jr., commanding the Forty-fourth Tennessee regiment, wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel Snowden, commanding the Twenty-fifth Tennessee regiment. Colonel Keeble, commanding Twenty-third Tennessee regiment. Lieutenant-Colonel Ready, of Twenty-third Tennessee regiment, wounded. Major Lowe,-------Tennessee regiment, wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel Floyd, commanding Seventeenth Tennessee regiment. Major Davis, of Seventeenth Tennessee regiment, wounded and captured. Adjutants Cross, Gwynn, and Fitzpatrick, and Lieutenant Gregg, who came into action on Sunday morning. Also, Captain Terry, who after he was wounded on Saturday evening, rende

sters in the witchcraft delusions. It must be remembered that the belief in this visitation was no new or peculiar thing in New England. The Church, the Scriptures, the mediaeval laws, had all made it a capital crime. There had been laws against it in England for a hundred years. Bishop Jewell had complained to Queen Elizabeth of the alarming increase of witches and sorcerers. Sir Thomas Browne had pronounced it flat atheism to doubt them. High legal and judicial authorities, as Dalton, Keeble, Sir Matthevw Hale, had described this crime as definitely and seriously as any other. In Scotland four thousand had suffered death for it in ten years; Cologne, Nuremberg, Geneva, Paris, were executing hundreds every year; even in 1749 a girl was burnt alive in Wurtzburg; and is it strange, if, during all that wild excitement, Massachusetts put to death twenty? The only wonder is in the independence of the Rhode Island people, who declared that there were no witches on the earth, nor devi
he had seen it exercised. Deliverance Hobbs had been whipped with iron rods by her spectre; neighbors, who had quarrelled with her, were Hale 37 willing to lay their little ills to her charge; the poor creature had a preternatural excrescence in her flesh; she gave a look towards the great and spacious meeting-house of Salem,—it is Cotton Mather who records this,—and immediately a daemon, invisibly entering the house, tore down a part of it. She was a witch by the rules and precedents of Keeble and Sir Matthew Hale, of Perkins and Bernard, of Baxter and Cotton Mather; and, on the 10th of June, protesting her innocence, she was hanged. Of the magistrates at that time, not one held office by the suffrage of the people: the tribunal, essentially despotic in its origin, as in its character, had no sanction but an extraordinary and an illegal commission; and Stoughton, the chief judge, a partisan of Andros, had been rejected by the people of Massachusetts.

We have heard the "Raphael" of Mr. Keeble very highly spoken of, and the "Marco" of the fair beneficiary would doubtless be as truthful a piece of acting as could well be conceived.

"Resolved, That the said Henry S. Foote, for his conduct aforesaid, deserves the censure of this House. "John A. Gilmer, "H. P. Bell." After considerable discussion, the vote was taken on the adoption of the majority report, and resulted — ayes, 51; noes, 25. Sixty-nine votes (two-thirds of all the members of Congress present and absent) being necessary to the expulsion of a member, the report was not agreed to. The House then adopted the minority report, the vote on the first resolution being unanimous, and on the second--yeas, 64; pays, Messrs. Blandford, Chrisman, Dupre, Gray, Keeble and J. T. Leach. [All the above, except Mr. J. T. Leach, had voted for the resolution of expulsion.] The House then went into secret session, and, when the doors were opened, adjourned.
