This important amendment prevailed ; and the bill, thus improved, passed : May 9. Yeas 29 ; Nays 7. Reaching the House, it was there referred to its District Committee ; reported May 15. therefrom without amendment, by Mr. Rollins, of N. H., and, on his motion, passed, under the Previous Question, without a call of the Yeas and Nays. It received the President's signature on the 21st. Bills making further and better provision for the education of colored children were matured and enacted in the course of that and the two following sessions. A treaty between the
risoners. Banks was delayed by Taylor's burning, as he fled, the bridges over the many bayous and sluggish water-courses of this region; but he entered Opelousas in triumph on the same day April 20. that our gunboats. under Lt.-Com'g A. P. Cooke, captured Butte à la Rose, opening the Atchafalaya to Red river; so that communication was reestablished, May 2. through the gunboat Arizona, with Admiral Farragut, at the mouth of that stream. And now a new advance was rapidly made May 5-9. by our army to Alexandria; Taylor, evacuating Fort De Russy, again retreating on Shreveport without a fight; while Admiral Porter came up the river with his fleet, and Louisiana, save its north-west corner, was virtually restored, or subjugated, as you will. Gen. Banks sent Weitzel, with a part of his army, on the track of the flying Rebels, nearly to Grand Ecore; when Taylor's force was so reduced that it did not seem worth farther pursuit; and he was unable to retake the field for weeks.
while returning from an excursion down Mosquito lagoon, Lt. Budd and 4 others killed, and several more wounded or captured. Thus closed unhappily an enterprise which was probably adequate to the complete recovery of Florida, though not able to hold it against the whole power of the Confederacy. Pensacola was evacuated by Brig.-Gen. Thos. N. Jones, its Rebel commander; who burned every thing combustible in the Navy Yard, Forts McRae and Barrancas, the hospital, &c., &c., and retreated May 9-10. inland with his command. The place was immediately occupied by Corn. Porter, of the Harriet Lane, and by Gen. Arnold, commanding Fort Pickens. Another naval expedition from Port Royal, Sept. 13. under Capt. Steedman, consisting of the gunboats Paul Jones and Cimarone, with three other steamboats, visited tile Florida coast in the Autumn, shelling and silencing the Rebel batteries at the mouth of the St. John's. Gen. Brannan, with a land force of 1,575 men, with a fleet of six
ley set to work, April 30. and soon had a main dam of timber and stone constructed across the channel of the river — here 758 feet wide, 4 to 6 deep, and running at the rate of 10 miles per hour — a little below the fall, whereby the depth of water in the main channel on the rapid was increased over five feet. Eight or nine days work of many willing hands had nearly completed this dam, and had rendered the falls passable by our largest boats above them, when the impetuous current swept May 9. away a part of it; whereupon, the Admiral--(who had several of his gunboats at the head, preparing to make the passage, and might have had them taken down)--on rising next day, rode up and ordered the Lexington to be sent down before the water — by this time considerably lower — should have fallen too far; and this was obeyed with entire success. The gunboat took the chute without a balk, and then rushed like an arrow through the narrow aperture in the lower dam; pitched down the roaring

Next day, May 9. our army cleared the Wilderness and was concentrated around Spottsylvania Court House, now held by Hill and Ewell: Warren in the center, Hancock on the right, Sed chief Quartermaster. On emerging from the Wilderness, Gen. Sheridan, with the better part of our cavalry, led by Merritt, Wilson, and Gregg, was dispatched May 9. on a raid toward Richmond. Crossing next day the North Anna, Sheridan carried the Beaverdam station on the Virginia Central, destroying the track, three trains oresolute effort was made May 7. to cut the railroad, some portion either of the North or South Carolina forces had already arrived; and, when it was renewed, May 9. the enemy had been materially strengthened. Still, the advantage of numbers was clearly on our side; and the enemy was forced to uncover the railroad, which was
