taria Bay, and was destined for twenty or more guns. Fort Pike--was a casemate fortification, placed at the Rigolettes, or North Pass, between Lake Borgue and Lake Pontchartrain, commanding the entrance to.the lake, and the main channel to the gulf in that direction. The amount of its armament I could never learn; Fort Macomb guarded the South Pass, between Lakes Borgue and Pontchartrain, and had a dozen or more guns. Fort Dupre was a small fort commanding Bayou Dupre into Lake Borgue. Proctor's Tower was another small work on Lake Borgue; and Battery Bienvenue at the entrance of Bayou Bienvenue into Lake Borgue. Besides these latter small batteries, mounting a few guns, were the Chalmette Batteries, above Fort Jackson, and much nearer the city. All these positions, guarding the approaches to New-Orleans from the Gulf, are distinctly shown on the ordinary maps. From the enthusiasm of our population, and the alacrity with which they mustered under arms, it was considered i

line they formerly occupied. The next morning (3d July) the rebels were gone, and at 7.15 the regiment with the brigade marched out on the Marietta road, passing through Marietta, and finding the enemy about five miles south, when they found the line and skirmished a little on the 4th of July, with no loss. On the morning of the 5th July the enemy had again disappeared from the front, and at 6 o'clock the One hundred and fourth Illinois and Fifteenth Kentucky entered the rebel works. Captain Proctor's company (I) captured 11 prisoners. At 8.30 they marched and came on the enemy's skirmishers about three miles south. The regiment was formed on the left of the railroad and skirmished with the enemy until evening, when they were relieved and moved back. Here they went into camp and remained until the 17th of July. On the 17th July they crossed the Chattahoochee and marched about a mile beyond. On the 18th they moved across Nancy's Creek, driving the enemy's skirmishers from their
She comes from St. Louis! by Edna Dean Proctor. On the sixteenth of July, 1868, the steamboat Imperial arrived at New-Orleans from St. Louis, the first boat between the cities for more than two years. She comes from St. Louis! Hurrah and hurrah! She lies at the levee unmarred by a scar! No cursing guerrillas could frighten her back, Though longing, like bloodhounds, to leap on her track; Nor cannon to sink her, nor chain set to bar-- She comes from St. Louis! Hurrah and hurrah! She comes from St. Louis! Who now will deny That Vicksburgh, Port Hudson, in ruins must lie? The good boat Imperial laughed them to scorn As bold to our levee she rounded at morn, And brought with her freedom and wealth from afar-- She comes from St. Louis! Hurrah and hurrah! She comes from St. Louis! The river is free! What tidings of glory, New-Orleans, for thee! Oh! welcome her I herald the holiday time-- Fling out all your banners now — let the bells chime-- Of sunny days dawning, the harbinger
y you left at 3 o'clock and we got to Fayetteville that night, and I got through the next day and reported to General Mitchel. He has not put me to work as yet, but I suppose he will to-morrow. I told him a little about quartermasters, and he has relieved Bell and Hastings both, and at my suggestion he has put Captain Slocum in the quartermaster's department. Huntsville is a nice town. The train on the other route has not got through yet and this is Sunday. No one has heard of them. Proctor, they say, was taken prisoner. He was a good ways ahead of his train. General Mitchel's son and about 200 of sick soldiers that was coming from Nashville to join their regiments was taken prisoners at Pulaski, on the other route. They let them go on parole. General Mitchel's son came in yesterday with a furlough signed by Morgan. He cannot take up arms until he is exchanged. Clark came through with us. I gave him an introduction to the general, and the general will give him transp
t was renewed, May 9. the enemy had been materially strengthened. Still, the advantage of numbers was clearly on our side; and the enemy was forced to uncover the railroad, which was destroyed for some distance; our troops pressing southward to Swift creek, three miles from Petersburg. But now, deceived by fresh, joyful, but hardly truthful, Washington advices, Butler turned his face northward, to participate in the expected speedy capture of Richmond; pushing his lines gradually up to Proctor's creek, whence the enemy withdrew May 13. to an intrenched line behind it, which Gen. Gillmore flanked, and which was to have been assaulted; but our troops had been so dispersed that the requisite force was not at hand; so the attack was deferred till next morning. May 16. But Beauregard — whom Butler supposed still at or below Petersburg, unable to get up — was on hand, with a formidable force, and intent on making himself disagreeable. A dense fog shrouded every thing, when,

The movement was of course detected by Hood; yet it had been substantially completed, and our men were hastily covering

off in that respect than any of our present generals — Hull wished to fortify his camp, to get his cannon mounted, to give time for the operation of a formidable proclamation which he had issued. While he was thus employed, the British General, Proctor — for Proctor we might read Johnston — arrived at Amherstburg with reinforcements, followed, first by General Brock, and then by Tecumseh, a noble Indian, any parallel for whom we should seek in vain in the ranks of our rebels.

Hull thereupon gave over the invasion of Canada and retired to Detroit, where he shortly after ingloriously surrendered to the approaching British and Indians, whereby not only Detroit, but the whole peninsula of Michigan, passed into the hands of the British. Great was the astonishment and anger of President and Cabinet — though they themselves, by the inadequacy of the forces which they had placed at Hull's disposal, were greatly to blame for it — great the astonishment and anger of the people at the
