he Seventh regiment of Maine Volunteers, under the command of Colonel E. C. Mason, U. S. A., left Augusta, Me., for the seat of war. There are in the regiment about eight hundred men. They were hastily organized, and therefore have had but little drill. The organization was made at Augusta, where Company A first went into encampment five weeks ago; some of the other companies were in camp only four or five days. The men are nearly all lumbermen, raftsmen, and farmers, mostly from along the Kennebec and Penobscot rivers. The largest company (A) have ninety men, who, with the exception of a few blacksmiths, are all lumbermen. This company, and Company K, did not have a man rejected at the inspection, nor did one refuse to take the oath of enlistment. The other companies lost each from two to five men in going through these forms. The regiment have camp equipage complete. Their uniform is light blue pantaloons, dark blue blouses, and the dark blue U. S. regulation infantry caps.

The Pinola ran to the hulk under the guns of Fort Jackson, and an attempt was made to leet above the forts. He was to keep in the channel of the river with the Sciota, Winona, Iroquois, Pinola, Itaska, and Kennebec, and push right on to his assigned work without regard to the forts. General Butler and his staff went on board the Saxne of which pierced her boiler, and she drifted helplessly down the river. From that storm the Winona recoiled, and the Kennebec, becoming entangled in the obstructions, lost her way in the intense darkness, and finally returned to her moorings belo

expense in the carriage, and it will also be a means of securing a retreat if we should be put to the rout again. But this advice of Washington was unheeded, and the campaign of 1756 was based upon the same erroneous principles as the preceding one. The first division, of three thousand men, was to operate against Fort Du Quesne; the second, of six thousand men, against Niagara; the third, of ten thousand men, against Crown Point; and a fourth, of two thousand men, was to ascend the Kennebec river, destroy the settlements on the Chaudiere, and, by alarming the country about Quebec, produce a diversion in favor of the third division, which was regarded as the main army, and was directed along the principal line of operations. The entire French forces at this time consisted of only three thousand regulars and a body of Canadian militia. Nevertheless, the English, with forces nearly six times as numerous, closed the campaign without gaining a single advantage. We here see that t

e forts. To this end, it was essential that the cable should first be broken; and to Capt. Bell, with the gunboats Pinola and Itasca, supported by the Iroquois, Kennebec, and Winona, was assigned the conduct of this critical undertaking; which, the night being dark, it was determined to attempt forthwith; at 10 P. M., the Pinola e eastern bank, exchanging compliments with Fort St. Philip. Capt. Bell, with the third division--consisting of the Scioto, Iroquois, Pinola, Winona, Itasca, and Kennebec — was to keep the middle of the river, and, disregarding the forts, to attack and vanquish the Rebel fleet in waiting above. Lieut. Weitzel had wisely suggestedived a volley of balls, one of which pierced her boiler and compelled her to drift down the river. The Winona recoiled from that fire, and failed to pass. Thle Kennebec was caught in the cable; and, when liberated, lost her way in the dense smoke; finally returning to her former anchorage below the forts. Capt. Farragut, in t

itions. Neither of us said anything until the rest of the class had passed by him. When I came to my place, 7.5, I said: Mr. President, now is my turn; 8 has just passed. Oh, said he, Butler, why so formal? Because I am going to take this place in the class for the last time. I mean to take hereafter the place I have fairly earned for myself. An incident occurred in the spring of that year which had considerable effect on my after life. On the 11th of May, the ice went out of Kennebec River, which was immediately behind the college, and a day or two afterwards, I went into the river to take a swim. Cakes of ice two feet thick were thrown upon the bank, and I used one of them for a seat for undressing and for dressing after I came out. It was not the first time that I had done that, but I lingered too long, and when I undertook to bring myself back to a glow by a run of a mile or so, I found that it was impossible, and at the end I was shivering as much as at the beginning.

ater battery below Fort Jackson, but were not to attempt to pass the forts. The Hartford, Richmond, and Brooklyn, Farragut commanding, were to advance upon Fort Jackson. The Cayuga, Pensacola, Mississippi, Oneida, Varuna, Katahdin, Kineo, and Wissahickon, Capt. Theodorus Bailey commanding, were to proceed along the eastern bank and attack Fort St. Philip as they passed. Captain Bell, commanding the third division, which consisted of the Scioto, Iroquois, Pinola, Winona, Itasca, and Kennebec, was to advance in the middle of the river and push on to attack the enemy's fleet above the forts. The night was still, and a light breeze up river brought with it a haze, which clung to the water. At two o'clock, a red light was run up the Hartford's mast-head, the signal to weigh anchor and advance. From the starting-point to a point in the river above the range of the guns of the forts the distance was five miles. The current was a strong three-mile current, and the order was not
