rance of the danger from a temporary cessation of intercourse will only strengthen the ties which bind us together. In the darkest hours of our history, the protection extended to us by Almighty God has been so manifest, as even to be acknowledged by candid foes. Their victories have been to them as fruit turning to ashes on their lips; our defeats have been chastenings to improve us and arouse our energies. On His help and our own right arms we steadfastly rely; counting on aid neither from the policy of neutral nations, nor from the distractions in the midst of our enemies, we look confidently forward to the day when thirteen confederate States will in peace and safety occupy their rightful position among the great powers of the earth.

Report of General Edward Johnson of capture of Winchester. headquarters Johnson's division, August 18th, 1863. Major A. S. Pendleton, Assistant Adjutant-General: Major — In obedience to orders, headquarters Second army corps, August 13, 1863, I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of my division from the time of leaving Fredericksburg for Winchester until it crossed the Potomac. The division left camp near Hamilton's crossing June 5th, 1863, and moved in the direction of Winchester, crossing the Blue Ridge at Chester Gap. Nothing occurred worthy of particular note during the march, which was steady and regular, the command being in good condition and excellent spirits. At daylight of the morning of the 13th ultimo, the division left its camp at Cedarville, moving on the Winchester and Front Royal turnpike. The enemy's pickets were discovered four miles from the town about 12 M. The Second Virginia regiment, Colonel Nadenbousch commanding,

contains about a tablespoonful of powder. You can readily perceive that if the bullet should encounter a bone or other hard substance when entering a man's body, it will explode and thereby produce a fatal wound. F. J. C. Philadelphia, August 23, 1862. In the Patent Office Report (United States) for 1863-4 will be found a shell exactly corresponding to this one: No. 39,593-Joseph Nottingham Smith, New York, N. Y.--Improvement in Elongated Projectile for Firearms — Patent dated August 18, 1863. It consists of an elongated cylinder having a charge chamber in its rear portion, which contains powder for propulsion. The point is a pointed axical bolt, whose rear is furnished with a percussion cap, to be exploded by the forward motion of a striker on the concussion of the projectile. Not having seen this ball, I cannot certainly identify it with the ball mentioned by F. J. C., but it is evidently the same. The inference is very natural that if these several projectiles,

This necessitated the following letter, which further explains the point at issue between the two commanders, and reverses the imputation of double-dealing thrown upon the officers who had acted under General Beauregard's instructions: Headquarters, Department S. C., Ga., and Fla., Charleston, S. C., August 18th, 1863. Brig.-General Q. A. Gillmore, Commanding U. S. Forces, etc., etc.: General,—Your letter of the 5th was not received at these Headquarters until the 8th instant. I cannot bandy allegations with you, and much less shall I emulate the temper and spirit in which your communication was conceived; but will simply confine myself to showing how groundless is your imputation of bad faith on my part, in connection with the return of wounded prisoners of war. You knew that there existed
you to have removed without delay to other works—that is, to Sullivan's Island and to Fort Johnson. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Thomas Jordan, Chief of Staff. Headquarters, Department S. C., Ga., and Fla., Charleston, S. C., August 18th, 1863. Brig.-Genl. R. S. Ripley, Comdg. First Mil. Dist., S. C., Charleston, S.
