urrounded by a little cultivation. The natives all speak Spanish, and wear the Mexican dress. McCarthy is very proud of his knowledge of the country, in spite of which he is often out in his calculations. The different tracks are so similar to one another, they are easily mistaken. At 4.45 P. M. we halted at a much better place than yesterday. We are obliged to halt where a little grass can be found for our mules. Soon after we had unpacked for the night, six Texan Rangers, of Wood's regiment, rode up to us. They were very picturesque fellows; tall, thin, and ragged, but quite gentlemanlike in their manners. We are always to sleep in the open until we arrive at San Antonio, and I find my Turkish lantern most useful at night. A lantern for a candle, made of white linen and wire, which collapses when not in use. They are always used in the streets of Constantinople. The Texans admired it immensely. 15th April, 1863 (Wednesday). I slept well last night in sp

te facings; so do the Generals in the Confederate army. M. de Polignac has recently been ap-pointed a brigadier: he and Cleburne are the only two generals amongst the Confederates who are foreigners. He is now thirtyfive years of age; but, his hair having turned gray, he looks older. Generals Bragg and Hardee both spoke to me of him in terms of the highest praise, and said that he had risen entirely by his own personal merit. At 5 P. M. I was present at a great open-air preaching at General Wood's camp. Bishop Elliott preached most admirably to a congregation composed of nearly 3,000 soldiers, who listened to him with the most profound attention. Generals Bragg, Polk, Hardee, Withers, Cleburne, and endless brigadiers, were also present. It is impossible to exaggerate the respect paid by all ranks of this army to Bishop Elliott; and although most of the officers are Episcopalians, the majority of the soldiers are Methodists, Baptists, &c. Bishop Elliott afterwards explained to

y). At 10 A. M., I called by appointment on Mr. Sedden, the Secretary at War. His anteroom was crowded with applicants for an interview, and I had no slight difficulty in getting in. Mr. Sedden is a cadaverous but clever-looking man; he received me with great kindness, and immediately furnished me with letters of introduction for Generals Lee and Longstreet. My friend Major Norris then took me to the President's office and introduced me to the aids-de-camp of the President-viz., Colonels Wood, Lee, and Johnston. The two latter are sons to General Lee and General Albert Sidney Johnston, who was killed at Shiloh. Major Norris then took me to the capitol, and introduced me to Mr. Thompson the librarian, and to Mr. Meyers, who is now supposed to look after British interests since the abrupt departure of Mr. Moore, the consul. I was told that Mr. Moore had always been considered a good friend to the Southern cause, and had got into the mess which caused his removal entirely
