special bulletin, while he forgot the words of encouragement so justly due to the soldiers who had just fought important battles. Meantime, the evacuation of Norfolk was followed by an event destined to influence military operations to a considerable extent, of which the President was yet ignorant, and the merits of which General Wool could not appropriate to himself. The Virginia was no longer in existence. That formidable vessel had been abandoned and destroyed by her crew. On the 9th of May she was the last to come out of that port of Norfolk, whence, during two months, she had held the whole Federal fleet in check. Was she to make a desperate attempt to steam into Hampton Roads, and thence either to gain the open sea or run the risk of being surrounded by the debris of that fleet and perish? Or was it not better to reascend the James River, so as to keep the Federal navy away from Richmond? Tatnall adopted the latter course. In order to get over the sand-banks of the r

General Hunter, although selected at first to supersede General Fremont in the West, shared the abolition sentiments of his predecessor. Being called to the command of Port Royal, which Sherman had left in the month of April, one of his first acts was to issue a proclamation far exceeding in extravagance that which had drawn Mr. Lincoln's censure upon Fremont. On the 9th of May, without even consulting or notifying the President, he simply announced that slavery was abolished in the three States of Georgia, Florida and South Carolina. The abolition party loudly applauded this proclamation, but it created much uneasiness in the border States; and the Confederate leaders took advantage of this discontent to make an effort to bring them over to their cause. Whatever may have been his opinion in the main, the President could not tolerate such a usurpation of power
