J. B. Jones, A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, chapter 48 (search)
and dismal; more rain or snow looked for. Certainly we are in a dark period of the war-encompassed by augmenting armies, almost starving in the midst of plenty (hoarded by the speculators), our men deserting-and others skulking duty, while Congress and the Executive seem paralyzed or incapable of thought or action. The President was better yesterday; but not out. They say it is neuralgia in the shoulder, disabling his right arm. Yet he orders appointments, etc., or forbids others. Major Noland, Commissary General, has refused to impress the coffee in the hands of speculators; saying there is no law authorizing it. The speculators rule the hour — for all, nearly, are speculators! God save us! we seem incapable of saving ourselves. No news to-day from Georgia and South Carolina-which means there is no good news. If it be true that Gen. Thomas has reinforced Grant with 30,000 men, we shall soon hear news without seeking it! The enemy will not rest content with their recent

Watkins, of the provisional army, were only equaled by his intrepidity, admirable coolness and skill in battle. Entirely unaccustomed to the sea, his devotion overcame all obstacles. He was ably and heroically seconded by Captains Fowler and Johnson, respective commanders of the steamers Bell and Uncle Ben, by Captains Odlum, O'Bryan, Noland and Aycock, and Lieutenants Dowling and Aikens, of the land forces, and by the engineers, pilots, troops and crews of the expedition. As there are but few battles to be reported in Texas during the war, and this naval affair was of a remarkable character, it is deemed proper to insert a full description of the preparations for and execution of it, prepared by an accomplished lady, Mrs. M. Looscan, wife of Major Looscan, of the Confederate army, derived directly and personally from the pa

The resolution was opposed by Messrs.

The resolution was advocated by Messrs. Forbes, of Fauquier; Anderson, of Botetourt, and Hunter, of Jefferson. Upon a call for the ayes and noes, the resolution was adopted by a vote of ayes 87, noes 19.
