He was attacked early in the morning by Lew Wallace's brigade, and, after a sharp engagement, fell back under cover of the artillery-fire of Captain Ketchum's battery, which was fighting within infantry-range. The artillery was managed in the most skillful and intrepid manner, and finally withdrew, covered by the Texas Rangers. Pond says of Ketchum, The safety of my command was due to him.

While proceeding to execute this order, whole batteries were supplied by volunteers from the infantry, who, ignorant but ardent, made shift to hurl destruction upon their foes in this unaccustomed way. Ketchum's invaluable services have already been alluded to. Byrne's battery rendered not less useful service on Sunday, and again on Monday, to the Kentucky Brigade. Whe

He had been appointed assistant secretary during the Vicksburg campaign, but probably for the reason that Congress had not yet authorized a second assistant his name was not sent to the Senate for confirmation to that office till January 20, 1864.

Capt. Ketchum, of the State Artillery, had ordered a salute in respect to him. The squad for the purpose was formed at the wharf, and just before dark, as the steamboat Selma left, fifteen guns were fired. We understand that these demonstrations were not desired by the Commodore, and that he wished to evade them; but the orders fo
