stly exhorted to arrest and secure the persons of eleven of the leading men of that society in Philadelphia, whose names were given. It was done, Aug. 28, 1777, and John Fisher, Abel James, James Pemberton, Henry Drinker, Israel Pemberton, John Pemberton, John James, Samuel Pleasants, Thomas Wharton, Sr., Thomas Fisher, and Samuel Fisher, leading members, were banished to Fredericksburg, Va.

At the same time the Congress instructed the board of war to send to Fredericksburg John Penn, the governor, and Benjamin Chew, chief-justice of Pennsylvania, for safe custody

He sent Colonel Palmer to destroy the railway between Salisbury and Greensboro and the factories at Salem, N. C., while the main body moved on Salisbury, forcing the Yadkin at Huntsville (April 11, and skirmishing near there. Palmer captured a South Carolina regiment of 400 men. Ten miles east of Salisbury (which was a depot for Union prisoners) the raiders encountered 3,000 Confederates, under Pemberton, Grant's opponent at Vicksburg. He had eighteen guns.

e agreeable position of head of my corps, and as long as I remain so, my desire to leave is greatly diminished. Major Craig is well and safe. What part he took in the recent events, I cannot say, as he was at the eastern end of the town. John Pemberton I saw a great deal of; he is aide to General Worth. Of course, being on the same staff, we were together all the time. He discharged his duties with great credit to himself, and was fortunate to receive no wound. I do not think you know ane as fresh in my heart as the day I left them. Tell the boys I will give them a long story about it all, when I get back. After your good father has read this letter, I wish you would communicate its contents to dear mother, Major Bache and Pemberton. My sketch is exceedingly rough, but will serve to illustrate the narrative. Monterey, Mexico, October 5, 1846. I have but little information to give you. The Mexican army has all gone to Saltillo, where Ampudia has published a flourish

by soldiers, and no dispatches, except those sent by the Administration, or received from its agents, are permitted to go over the wires. It is asserted, on tolerable authority, (for nothing now relating to the operations of the Administration is certain, as all its plans are intended as profound secrets,) that all those residents of Washington and Georgetown whose affiliations are with the South, will soon be driven from their homes and firesides. Majors Robert H. Chilton and John Pemberton, U. S. A., have resigned, and tendered their services to the State of Virginia. A majority of the members of the 7th Regiment say they did not leave their homes for the purpose of invading the soil of the South, or coercing its people; they simply came to defend the Capital; and because of this expression of opinion, their loyalty to Lincoln's Government is suspicioned, and it has been suggested to the President that he had better keep an eye on their movements, lest they may, in ca
