53. on the Death of Zollicoffer. The spirit of Felix K. Zollicoffer wrote this in the hands of the medium, Lucretia Russell. He lay upon the battle-field, His lips gave not a sound, He fought with brave and — manly aid When on the battle ground. His aged mother bent her knee In one most fervent sound, He lay there-looked like marble white-- With mourning friends around. Brave Zollicoffer called his men, I'm dying, men, cried he, And from this day for evermore, I never shall happy be. Tell my mother not to weep for me, Nor give one lingering sigh, For when I fell from off my horse I never flinched to die. Another General gave command, I could not hear that sound, But off they ran and left me there Dead-lifeless on the ground. Louisville Journal, February 10

Sousley, and received by me to-day. In reply to their earnest solicitations to visit St. Louis and Alton, allow me to say that I would be most happy to do so when the weather and travelling are pleasant; although I would again assure them that in any part I might have taken on the twenty-ninth day of December, in the preservation of the lives of my fellow-beings and their property, I only obeyed the impulse of a loyal heart. With my kindest wishes for the prosperity and happiness of the members of your Company and yourself. I remain yours, respectfully, Sarah L. Eversol. Missouri Democrat, February 10.

confederate States, or who have aided or comforted the rebels in their hostility against the United States, and who have not, since the commencement of the rebellion, taken an oath renewing their allegiance to the United States, may have the opportunity of enjoying the full benefits of the said proclamation, by voluntarily taking the oath therein contained. The provost-marshal is required to take a census of the population now within the line, in order that such persons as may not wish to enjoy the benefits of the proclamation, may be known, and be assigned a convenient place of residence where they will not have opportunity to do injury to the cause for which we fight. He will proceed, in the most thorough manner possible, and will give public notice of his orders and regulations to consummate the end in view, and will report, on the tenth day of February, proximo, the list of those persons who refuse the benefits of the proclamation. By order of Major-General N. J. T. Dana.
the railroads ever beheld — south below Quitman, east to Cuba Station, twenty miles north to Lauderdale Springs, and west all the way back to Jackson. I could hear nothing of the cavalry force of General William Smith ordered to be there by February tenth. I inclose by mail this, with a copy of his instructions. I then began to give back slowly, making a circuit by the north to Canton, where I left the army yesterday, in splendid condition. I will leave it there five days, in hopes the cavand engaged in tearing up railroad track; some miles of track torn up, rails heated and twisted, bridges, culverts, and stations burned, etc.; Sixteenth army corps, under General Hurlbut, pass to the front to-day; slight skirmishing to-day.

Doc. 113.-battle of bear River, W. T. Deseret news account. Deseret, February 10. in the last issue of the News, and the one preceding that, we noticed, as far as we had information, the expedition for the arrest of Indian chiefs, and the fight with the Indians. The volunteers have now returned to their quarters on the beach, east of the city, and through them we learn the facts in detail of the expedition, and of a hard-fought battle, which, though in a locality outside of our territorial limits, will not be the less felt in its results by our citizens. As we have been freely furnished with what information we have requested, we give it as freely to our readers at home and abroad. At the time we noticed the departure of the infantry under Captain Hoyt, and of the cavalry under Major McGarry We now learn that the former had sixty-nine men of company K, Third infantry, and the latter had two hundred and twenty men of companies A, H, M, and K, Second cavalry.

ined large quantities of war-supplies of all kinds. A more critical examination, however, showed the necessity of A view from Fort Marcy--company a, fourth New York heavy artillery In front of the tent at the right of the picture sits William Arthur, brother of Chester A. Arthur, the future President. This view was taken from the Fort down toward the camp. The Fourth New York Heavy Artillery was organized at New York, November, 1861, to February, 1862. It left for Washington on February 10th. Its first Camp was five miles from Chain Bridge, and its second at Fort Marcy. These unusually clear photographs were treasured half a century by T. J. Lockwood, a member of the regiment. Looking from the Camp toward Fort Marcy Marcy was the northernmost Fort on the west side of the Potomac, lying above Chain Bridge. Its armament consisted of three 24-pounders en barbette, two 12-pounder howitzers, six 30-pounder Parrotts, three 20-pounder Parrotts and three 10-pounder Parrotts,

Diary of Captain Robert E. Park, Twelfth Alabama regiment. [continued from January No.] February 10th, 11th and 12th, 1865 There is a tent of sutler's supplies near the mess hall, kept by an avaricious Yankee, named Emery, who is believed to be a partner of General Schoeff. Tobacco, matches, oil for cooking lamps, stationery, baker's bread, pies, cakes, apples, onions, etc., all of very poor quality, are kept for sale, and from 500 per cent. to 1,000 per cent. profit is charged. Emery's position is a paying, if not a very dignified one. Jolly Sam Brewer, the clever Twelfth Alabama sutler, would have rejoiced at a quarter of Emery's huge profits. There is very often an eager, clamorous throng crowded around his tent, checks in hand, and held aloft, eager to buy the inferior articles, sold at prices so far above their value. Emery and his clerks are vulgar, impertinent, grasping Yankees, and elegant Southern gentlemen are frequently compelled to submit to disagreeab
