ment in the trans-Mississippi Department. Lewis E. Harvie, president of the railroad, sends a communication to the Secretary (I hope it will reach him) inclosing a request from Gen. Winder to permit liquors to be transported on his road to Clover Hill. Mr. Harvie objects to it, and asks instructions from the Secretary. He says Clover Hill is the point from which the smuggling is done, and that to place it there, is equivalent to bringing it into the city. January 7 To-day I was requClover Hill is the point from which the smuggling is done, and that to place it there, is equivalent to bringing it into the city. January 7 To-day I was requested to aid, temporarily, in putting in operation a new bureau, created by the military authorities, not by law, entitled the Bureau of Conscription. From conscription all future recruits must be derived. I found Gen. Rains, the chief, a most affable officer; and Lieut.-Col. Lay, his next officer, was an acquaintance. I shall not now, perhaps, see so much of the interior of this moving picture of Revolution; my son, however, will note important letters. It is said that Sumner's corps (of B

ce were transferred to the First Maine Heavy Artillery. These men — transferred after the war had ended — are not included in the enrollment, as they formed no part of the body under consideration in the matter of percentage of loss. Their number had already entered into the calculation of the regiments in which they had previously served. A careful examination of the rolls of the First Maine Heavy Artillery, name by name, shows that 2202 men only were enrolled prior to the surrender at Appomattox. A similar case is found in the Fifty-seventh Massachusetts, which carried 1052 names, officers and enlisted men, on its rolls up to the close of the war. On the 9th of August, 1865--four months after the fighting had ceased — its rolls were increased by a transfer of the Fifty-ninth Massachusetts, which was consolidated with it. The names thus added were not included in the enrollment under consideration. In the following table will be found every regiment in which the loss in kille<

the short, sad epitaph, Unknown. Killed at Malvern Hill, July 11 1862; and there rises a picture of an artilleryman lying dead at the wheels of his gun. Died of gunshot wound before Atlanta, August 20, 1864, tells of some lad who fills a grave long miles away from the village church-yard of his Northern home. Wounded at Antietam, September 17, 1862, and died on the amputating table, brings up the dire vision of the field-hospital, that ghastly sequel of every battle. Killed at Appomattox, April 9, 1865; and one sees the dead cavalryman, who, falling in that closing battle of the war, died with home and victory in sight. Died of sunstroke, recalls the long march, the heavy load, the dust, the heat, and a senseless form lying at the roadside. Died of fever at Young's Point, Miss., reminds one of the campaigns in the bayous and poisonous swamps, with the men falling in scores before a foe more deadly and remorseless than the bullet.

Fort Blakely, Ala., fell the same day, carried by a bloody assault.
Numerous circumstances in the life of Grant illustrate his consideration for others. At Vicksburg, Mississippi, where over thirty thousand Confederates surrendered to him, July 4, 1863, he directed his exulting troops to be orderly and quiet as the paroled prisoners passed and to make no offensive remarks. The only cheers heard there were for the defenders of Vicksburg, and the music sounded was the tune of Old hundred, in which victor and vanquished could join. The surrender at Appomattox, Virginia, April 9, 1865, was characterized by almost feminine tenderness and tact, and a sympathetic courtesy toward the conquered so marked that an observer was moved to ask, Who's surrendering here, anyway? A simple-hearted country lad disposed to bucolic life, so Grant in 1863—before the first of his great victories Grant was described in 1861 as a man who knows how to do things. In February, 1862, he captured Forts Henry and Donelson, thus opening the way for a Federal advance up
