be succeeded by a Marylander, Major Griswold, whose family is now in the enemy's country. April 26 Gen. Lee is doing good service in bringing forward reinforcements from the South against the day of trial-and an awful day awaits us. It is understood that he made fully known to the President his appreciation of the desperate condition of affairs, and demanded carte blanche as a condition of his acceptance of the position of commanding general. The President wisely agreed to the terms. April 27 Gen. Lee is calm-but the work of preparation goes on night and day. April 28 We have rumors of an important cabinet meeting, wherein it was resolved to advise or command Gen. Johnston to evacuate Yorktown and retire toward Richmond! Also that Norfolk is to be given up! I don't believe it; Lee's name is not mentioned. April 29 Major Griswold is here, and so is a new batch of Marylanders. April 30 Troops from the South are coming in and marching down the Peninsula.

April 4 The enemy are shelling our camp at Yorktown. I can hear the reports of the guns, of a damp evening. We are sending back defiance with our guns. The President has not taken any notice of my communication. Mr. Benjamin is too powerful to be affected by such proofs of such small matters. April 5 Newbern, N. C., has fallen into the hands of the enemy! Our men, though opposed by greatly superior numbers, made a brave resistance, and killed and wounded 1000 of the invaders. The enemy were piloted up the river to Newbern by the same Mr. Dibble to whom I refused a passport, but to whom the Secretary of War granted one. The press everywhere is commenting on the case of Dibble-but Mordecai still sits at the gate. April 6 Two spies (Lincoln's detective police) have been

The press everywhere is commenting on the case of Dibble-but Mordecai still sits at the gate. April 6 Two spies (Lincoln's detective police) have been arrested here, tried by court-martial, and condemned to be hung. There is an awful silence among the Baltimore detectives, which bodes no harm to the condemned. They will not be executed, though guilty. April 7 R. G. H. Kean, a young man, and a connection of Mr. Randolph, has been appointed Chief of the Bureau of War in place of Col. Bledsoe, resigned at last.

Mr. Kean was, I believe, a lieutenant when Mr. Randolph was colonel, and acted as his adjutant. April 8 Col. Bledsoe has been appointed Assistant Secretary of War by the President. Now he is in his glory, and has forgotten me. April 9 There are several young officers who have sheathed the sword, and propose to draw the pen in the civil service. To-day I asked of the department a month's respite from labor, and obtained it. But I remained in the city, and watched closely, still hoping I might serve the cause, or at least prevent more injury to it, from the wicked facility hitherto enjoyed by spies to leave the country.
