I presume we are fixed here until after the 16th. To-morrow will probably see the last of Captain Brown (Old John Brown). There will be less interest for the others, but still I think the troops will not be withdrawn till they are similarly disposed of. This morning I was introduced to Mrs. Brown, who with a Mr. Tyndale and Mrs. McKim, all from Philadelphia, has come on to have a last interview with her husband. As it is a matter over which I have no control, and wish to take none, I referred them to General William B. Taliaferro. Commanding the Virginia troops. Tell Smith [his brother in the navy] that no charming women have insisted on taking charge of me, as they are always doing of him. I am left to my own resources. A committee of Congress was appointed to investigate the matter, who reported that the invasi

The crowd pressed round this car as soon as the Generals were discovered, and commenced hissing, groaning and howling in a manner calculated to give the occupants an impression not altogether favorable to the citizens of the Yankee capital. United States Marshal Keyes, Deputy-Sheriff Jones, and Capt. McKim, Assistant United States Quartermaster, went into the car attended by a number of policemen. They soon appeared with the two Generals, and conducted them to the front of the depot, followed by the crowd, which was rapidly swelling in numbers. The prisoners jumped into a hack in waiting there, and were followed by Marshal Keyes and Col. Cutts. Sheriff Jones mounted the box with the driver. As they drove off, the crowd amused itself by groaning vehemently for Jeff. Davis. The hack was d

It was at and beyond these breastworks that the division sustained the most severe loss, the nature of the ground being such that the enemy had a plunging fire upon us, and sent destruction upon all that occupied the slope of the hill on which we were. Here fell the gallant Colonel Garnett, commanding Jones's brigade, leaving Colonel Vandeventer, Fiftieth Virginia, in command. Here Major McKim, of division staff, was killed while most gallantly cheering on the men. Major Hoffman and Mr. Grogan, of the same staff, were wounded. All these officers having remained mounted with and near the division commander and the other members of the staff, and having their horses killed under them. For a time the tide of battle fluctuated; the three brigades of this division making several distinct charges, and being driven back by superior numbers, until at last the enemy were compelled t

had authority to furnish transportation. Colonel Day refused it, on the ground that Mr. Goddard's furlough was no sufficient authority for the man's absence. Captain McKim, the United-States Quartermaster in Boston, also declined to furnish transportation. The State had neither authority nor funds. The Adjutant-General said,— every thing in his power to have the bills settled; but he cannot make officers make the returns they should make, and therefore he is denied what is his due. Captain McKim and all of us are satisfied that the bills are just, and that Mr. Palmer should have been paid long ago. I will thank you, therefore, if you will take the bills and vouchers as they are, and permit Captain McKim to pay Mr. Palmer what is so justly his due, and which he is so much in need of. The bill was paid; not, however, without some further delay. There were a great many cases of this character, some of which have not yet been settled, for want of proper vouchers, which should h
