nably though painfully true, that the great body of the people of Kentucky were the active allies of Lincoln, and the unnatural enemies of those united to them by lineage, blood, and common institutions. Those who love and honor the name of Henry Clay will thank the author of the Southern History for the following undesigned but richly merited homage to the character and influence of that great man: It is certainly defective logic, or, at best, an inadequate explanation, which attributest adhesion of a large portion of the Kentucky people to the Northern cause must be attributed to permanent causes; and among these were, first, an essential unsoundness on the Slavery question, under the influences of the peculiar philosophy of Henry Clay, who, like every great man, left an impress upon his State, which it remained for future even more than contemporary generations to attest. A determined Union Legislature having thus been elected but not yet assembled, Gov. Magoffin, feelin

e whole bluff was ablaze with the flashes, and quaking to the roar, of heavy guns, rising tier above tier along the entire water-front of the city. The fleet promptly responded with grape and shrapnel, firing at the city rather than the batteries, and went by unharmed; opening upon the Warrenton batteries, as it neared them, so furious a cannonade that they scarcely attempted a reply. The passage of the gunboats was thus triumphantly effected ; but of the three transports — Forest Queen, Henry Clay, and Silver Wave — which attempted to follow, under cover of the smoke, the first-named was hulled by a shot, and received another through her steam-drum, disabling her; yet she floated out of a range, and, being taken in tow by a gunboat, went through without further damage; while the Silver Wave ran the gauntlet entirely unscathed; but the Clay was struck by a shell which set her protecting cotton-bales on fire, just as she had been stopped, to prevent a collision with the crippled Queen

ch gazed audaciously his toes, indicating that the plunderings of many a different locality made up his whole. Generally the soldiers were armed with shot-guns or squirrel rifles; some had the old flint-lock muskets, a few had Minie guns, and others Sharp's or Maynard rifles, while all, to the poorest, had horses. The very elite of the Confederate forces were there--Generals Price, Rains, Slack, Parsons, Harris, Green, Hardee, were all there--Colonels Saunders, Payn, Beal, Turner, Craven, Clay, and in short, I believe the balance of the thirty-five thousand men, all either colonels or majors, as I was introduced to no one who was not either the one or the other. The treatment extended by the Confederate officers to the prisoners was both humane and courteous — they protected them, when possible, from insult and plundering, and as much as possible extended to them the courtesies with which a chivalrous enemy always treats a conquered foe. Of the losses on both sides, I will no
. But it has ever since been forced upon the Democratic party by the South. In this connection Governor Thomas quoted Mr. Clay's declaration: So help me God, I will never vote for the introduction of slavery in territory where it does not exist. I stand now where Mr. Clay then stood, and will ever stand so long as I lave power to give utterance to my sentiments. I may be called a Black Republican, an Abolitionist, but I care not. When I was charged in Western Maryland as being unsafe, as beion occupied by Mr. Van Buren in 1832, when he received the vote of Maryland for Vice-President. It is the position of Henry Clay (tremendous applause) in his whole career — a favorite of old Maryland; of Washington, Jefferson, and Madison, through tance rendered by the leading Whigs of 1832 to General Jackson, when South Carolina raised the nullification banner. Then Clay, Webster, and Adams, forgetting all that had induced them to oppose Jackson in his course toward the United States Bank, t
41. never! never! never! I may be asked, as I have been asked, when I am for the dissolution of the Union? I answer, never-never — never. --Henry Clay. You ask me when I'd rend the scroll Our father's names are written o'er, When I would see our flag unroll. Its mingled stars and stripes no more-- When, with a worse than felon's hand Or felon's counsels, I would sever The Union of this glorious land? I answer: never! never! never! When ye can find the lawless might Where carnage treads its crimson way, Where burning cities gild the night, And cannon smoke obscures the day; In towns deserted, fields of ground Abandoned by the faithful plough, Security, hope, peace profound, The blessings Heaven vouchsafes you now. Think ye that I could brook to see The emblem I have loved so long, Borne peaceful o'er the distant sea, Torn, trampled by a frenzied throng? Divided, measured, parcelled out, Tamely surrendered up forever, To gratify a lawless rout Of traitors? Never! never! never! O

ry of the Interior. The marriage ceremony was attended by a large and distinguished company, embracing Daniel Webster, Henry Clay, T. H. Benton, President Taylor, and all his cabinet. This occurred at the house of Mr. Ewing, the same now owned and e political struggle recommenced, and it became manifest that Mr. Fillmore favored the general compromise then known as Henry Clay's Omnibus bill, and that a general change of cabinet would at once occur. Webster was to succeed Mr. Clayton as Secrett, before this had occurred, some most interesting debates took place in the Senate, which I regularly attended, and heard Clay, Benton, Foote, King of Alabama, Dayton, and the many real orators of that day. Mr. Calhoun was in his seat, but he was evpeech was full of fact and argument, but it had none of the fire of oratory, or intensity of feeling, that marked all of Mr. Clay's efforts.

The first gun in the present conflict was fired at Fort Sumter on Henry Clay's birthday. The fort surrendered on Thomas Jefferson's birthday. The contest began in the streets of Baltimore on the anniversary of the battle of Lexington and Concord.--Charleston Mercury, May 6.

I beg leave to name Dr. Rodig, Hospital-Steward of the Fifteenth Ohio, whose industry and attention to the wounded excited general admiration, and Dr. Corey, Hospital — Steward, and John Glick, Ward--Master of the Forty-ninth Ohio, who rendered most valuable service. To the members of the brigade-staff I am under great personal obligations for valuable suggestions on the field. Captain Henry Clay, A. A. G., ever active and prompt in the performance of duty, gave exhibitions of genius and courage worthy of his ancestors. Lieut. W. C. Turner, Senior Aid-de-Camp, comprehended the responsibility of his position, and bore my orders to every part of the field with the greatest alacrity, and was exposed throughout the day to fearful danger.
