ke his escape into Mississippi. His progress was slow, for the streams were brimful. Hurlbut's troops burned the bridges in his track, and he had but few pontoons with him. One bridge — an important one, near Lafayette — was left standing, and over that he passed with a large drove of cattle and other plunder, and nearly all fresh horses, and escaped under cover of an attack on Colliersville, by General Richardson. This attack misled Grierson, who was waiting and watching for Forrest at La Grange; and the wily guerrilla had too much the start when Grierson, properly informed, pressed on in pursuit, to be easily caught. Grierson gave up the chase at Holly Springs, and Forrest found safety farther south. Sherman now reappeared in Mississippi. After the return of his troops to Chattanooga from Knoxville, his command was stationed along the line of the Memphis and Charleston railway, in Northern Alabama, from Scottsboroa to Huntsville. There he remained with them until toward the

McCook found Jackson at Scottsville, well posted, with intrenchments covering his column. Croxton had not

where to get it. The result was an inequitable distribution — many got too much, many got nothing; and dust-hunters picked up a good deal the following day — a good deal that was trampled under foot during the contemptible scramble. --History, &c. by C. E. L. Stuart. the remainder of the Cabinet, excepting Reagan, deserted the President. Mallory, the Secretary of the Navy, doubting whether his official services would be needed on the Gulf, fled, with the notorious Wigfall, by railway, to La Grange, where he found his family, and was subsequently arrested. Benjamin, the Secretary of State, mysteriously disappeared, after making ample provision for his own comfort. He afterward solved the enigma by showing his person in England. Of all the ministers, only Reagan remained faithful to the person of the chief. Up to this time, Davis's wife and children, and Mrs. Davis's sister, Miss Howell, had accompanied the fugitive Government from Danville. Now, for prudential reasons, this fa
