kirmish, and that the Orleans Volunteers, the colored battalions, and the French corsairs faced the British army, day and night, and bore the brunt of the successive attacks of the enemy. The militiamen from upriver were in the big battle of January 8th; so that the principal share of the glory must be given to the brave men, who were constantly occupied since December in fighting for their country. Louisianians should not forget that Major H. de St. Geme is justly entitled to the distinctioe Rigolets, between Lake Borgne and Lake Pontchartrain, on the present site of Fort Pike.) The staff, rank and file. The chronicler gives a complete list of the staff, company commanders and of the soldiers who took part in the battle of January 8th. Many of those names are still extant in these times, and are borne by worthy descendants of brave and patriotic ancestors. No one can peruse the appended lists of names without immediately recognizing the name of some prominent and respecte
nition, and I regret to say that the greatest number of desertions have occurred among the North Carolina troops, who have fought as gallantly as any soldiers in the army. . . . I shall do all in my power to arrest this evil, but I am convinced, as already stated to you, that it proceeds from the discouraging sentiment out of the army, which, unless it can be changed, will bring us to calamity. One cause of these desertions was the suffering among the troops from lack of food. On the 8th of January, Lee wrote to the rebel government that the entire right wing of his army had been in line for three days and nights, in the most inclement weather of the season. Under these circumstances, he said, heightened by assaults and fire of the enemy, some of the men had been without meat for three days, and all were suffering from reduced rations and scant clothing. Colonel Cole, chief commissary, reports that he has not a pound of meat at his disposal. If some change is not made, and the c

local committees, whose names are recorded from year to year. In a few instances we know who were the teachers and the length of their service. Thus, at the Stoneham precinct, William Hay taught for the months of February and March, 1721, for the £ 8. In 1722 George Taylor kept this school for three months, fourteen days, and overrun the appropriation fifteen shillings. In 1724 the teacher was Mr. Hancock, and for 1725 Ebenezer Parker. At Mistick-side John Brentnall kept the school from 8 January to 15 February for the £ 4 appropriated, and the next year Nathan Burnham rendered a similar service. The query naturally arises whether these outlying districts maintained a school during the major part of the year at their own expense, or are we to suppose that the short periods mentioned represent the sum total of a year's schooling?

, but he was not voluminous at the expense of accuracy and painstaking labor. He had a genius for hard work. Somerville was honored in being the residence of such a man. He sent out work from here that traveled far and reached many firesides. Thousands knew him through his books and called his books good. We who knew the man also call his books good; but we call the man better than his books. At a meeting of the council of the Somerville Historical Society, held Wednesday evening, January 8, to take action on the death of Elbridge S. Brooks, first vice-president of the society, a committee, consisting of President John F. Ayer, ex-President Charles D. Elliot, and Vice-President L. B. Pillsbury, was appointed to represent the society at the funeral; a committee was also appointed to prepare a suitable memorial of the deceased. Under the auspices of this society a memorial service was held Sunday afternoon, February 16, in the Unitarian church, on Highland avenue, in honor

ns. The latter rejected Mr. Crittenden's compromise, for the first time, on the 9th of January, declaring that the Constitution should be maintained as it was; thus answering the arguments of the instigators of the rebellion, who, even in the Federal legislature, attacked that Constitution in virtue of which they held their seats in Congress. The mission of the South Carolina delegates had, somewhat late it is true, recalled President Buchanan to a sense of his public duties. On the 8th of January he sent a message to Congress in which he announced his firm determination to perform them. A few days before—the 5th of January—he resolved to revictual Fort Sumter. But instead of openly sending some vessels of war, he had despatched a simple transport-ship, which, as we have stated, was stopped by a few cannon-shots at the entrance of the bay of Charleston. Always tardy in his action, on the 18th he dismissed General Twiggs, who, on the 16th, had surrendered the troops under his co

ns; but they had given up the idea of disputing its possession with the Federals, who, under Pope, occupied all the principal points in the country. They confined themselves to the task of recruiting volunteers, who afterwards crossed the river to join Price's army, while, on the contrary, all the efforts of the Federals were intended to disperse or to intercept those recruits. In this war of detail we have only a single serious engagement to record, that of Silver Creek, where, on the 8th of January, a party of Federal cavalry routed a small body of Confederate partisans, who had just met there and were in the act of organizing. In the mean while, Curtis, who had retired with the army of the Missouri as far as Rolla, was preparing to go in search of Price in the southern part of the State. The Confederate general, whose troops were daily increasing in number, occupied a threatening position at Springfield, from which it was important to dislodge him. Curtis had collected twelve

vers, within reach of railways of great importance to the Confederacy, he had shown, by his expedition against Goldsborough in November, 1862, that his presence was not an idle threat. The Federal navy kept up a connection between the various stations of the land-forces, protected them in case of need with its powerful guns, and participated in the reconnoissances, the small expeditions, which were undertaken for the purpose of preventing the enemy from approaching them. Thus, on the 8th of January two steamers, The gunboats Mahaska and Commodore Morris, and an army-tug, the May Queen.—Ed. combining their movements with those of a regiment of cavalry, ascended the Pamunkey River as far as the White House, and destroyed some large depots of grain; on the 30th of the same month a Federal gunboat With fifty men of the Twenty-seventh Massachusetts on board.—Ed. entered the waters of the Perquimans River, which runs from the Dismal Swamp into Albemarle Sound, reached the town of H

erling, destroying all the provisions that were found there; on the 25th, after a skirmish at Licktown, near the latter village, Cluke gets away from Colonel Runkle, who had been sent in pursuit of him, and returns to the mountains whence he had emerged by way of Hazel Green and the Prestonburg road. Since the beginning of the year both parties seem to have abandoned Western Tennessee by common accord. It is sufficient to mention a few slight skirmishes, such as that at Ripley on the 8th of January, that at Ayresburg on the 30th, and that at Bolivar on the 13th of February, between the Confederate scouts and detachments from the garrisons of Fort Pillow and Memphis. But at the moment that Cluke invades the plain of Kentucky the Federals, in order to divert the attention of their adversaries, determine to make a demonstration along that section of the Tennessee River which crosses the northern part of the State of Alabama, and which furnishes abundant provisions to Bragg's army.
