No doubt,ne of retreat-Sherman's bloody repulse at Kenesaw, and the compelled slowness of his advance on Atlanta-Early's unresisted swoop down the Valley into Maryland, his defeat of Wallace at the Monocacy, f a similar success at the prison-camp near Indianapolis-thus raising the siege of Richmond and Atlanta by a fire in the rear --but that such a conspiracy had for weeks existed; that many then in Ch.

The delegates from Nebraska, Colorado, and Nevada, were then allowed also to vote; but not those from Virginia, Florida, and the remaining territories. Mr. Henry J. Raymond, of N. Y., reported the platform, which was unanimously adopted. It is

Allis defeat of Wallace at the Monocacy, and his unpunished demonstration against the defenses of Washington itself — the raids of his troopers up to the suburbs of Baltimore, on the Philadelphia Railroad, and even up into Pennsylvania; burning Chambersburg and alarming even Pittsburg — and finally the bloody, wretched fiasco of the Mit would fail; and therefore went in for a nomination and platform to make it the sure thing by a cessation of hostilities and an abandonment of the contest. At Baltimore, on the contrary, we determined that there should be no such thing as failure; and therefore we went in to save the Union by battle to the last. Sherman and Far

When he accepted it, on the accession of Mr. Lincoln, the Finances were already in chaos; the current revenue being inadequate, even in the absence of all expenditure or preparation for war; his predecessor Howell Cobb, of Georgia. having attempted to borrow $10,000,000 in October, 1860, and obtained only $7,022,000-the bidders to whom the balance was awarded choosing to forfeit their initial deposit rather than take and pay for their bonds. Thenceforth, he had tided oveade during this gloomy period. One of these originated with certain Confederates then in Canada, one of whom wrote July 5, 1864. to the author of this work, averring that Messrs. Clement C. Clay, of Alabama, James P.

Jones, formerly editor of the Southern Monitor, Philadelphia, who returned to his native South at the outbreak of the Rebellion, and obtained a clerkship in the Confederate War Department, in his Rebel War-Clerk's Diary, thus records an incident of Mr. C.
