ssisted toward the final result. Our total loss in the fleet was-killed, 37; wounded, 147. The ships which suffered most were the Pensacola, 37; Brooklyn, 35; and Iroquois, 28. When the sun rose on the Federal fleet the morning after the fight, it shone on smiling faces, even among those who were suffering from their wounds. Farragut received the congratulations of his officers with the same imperturbability that he had exhibited all through the eventful battle; and while he showed great feeling for those of his men who had been killed or wounded, he did not waste time in vain regrets, but made the signal, Push on to New Orleans. The fact that he had won imperishable fame did not seem to occur to him, so intent were his thoughts on following up his great victory to the end. The Confederate River defense ram Stonewall Jackson.

and with a surprise to her people plainly to be seen. This shot missed her! She replied quickly with one or more guns, when a running fight commenced, she raking us with such guns as she could bring to bear, but not daring the risk of a sheer to deliver her broadside, as we were too close upon her. Her former great superiority was now reduced to a lower figure than that of our two guns, for we, having assumed the offensive, had the advantage and maintained it until she sank. The Stonewall Jackson ramming the Varuna. Our hoped — for and expected aid never came from any source. So far from it the gun-boat Jackson, lying at quarantine, slipped her cable when the fight commenced, firing two shots at both of us, believing us both enemies (one striking our foremast), and started with all haste for the head-waters of the Mississippi, delaying at New Orleans long enough for her people with their baggage to be landed, when Lieutenant F. B. Renshaw, her commander, burnt her at the l

The water-battery at Fort Jackson. William B. Robertson, Captain, 1st Louisiana Artillery, C. S. A. On the 15th of April, 1862, I was directed by Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Higgins, commanding Forts Jackson and St. Philip, to take command of the water-battery. [See map, p. 34.] This was an outwork of Fort Jackson, separated from it by two moats. It was quadrilateral in shape, inclosed on three sides by a breastwork made of earth, the side next to the fort being open. The battery had no casemates or covered ways. It had been hastily prepared for use just previous to the appearance of the enemy's fleet in our front. During the siege it was directly in the line of fire from the mortar-boats, or very nearly so. The battery was manned by a detachment of Company D, 1st Louisiana Artillery, under First Lieutenant R. J. Bruce, a detachment of the St. Mary's Cannoneers, under First Lieutenant George 0. Foot, and a detachment of my company, B, 1st Louisiana Artillery, under Sergean

ng their guns, few of them having ever seen a cannon fired. In his account of the capitulation in the cabin of the Harriet Lane, Admiral Porter says: As we were about to sign the terms, I was quite surprised to find that it was not expected that the vessels of war were to be included in the terms agreed to by the Confederate officers. Surprised, indeed! when that very morning Colonel Higgins had sent his letter of the same day (April 28th), offering the surrender of these forts (Jackson and St. Philip), which he commanded; and closing with the words, we have no control over the vessels afloat. [See note, p. 51.] Moreover, in the terms presented to Duncan when he went on board, which the Admiral says he had prepared before, nothing is said of the surrender of the naval forces. Such a contradictory statement, however, has its parallel in the assertion as to the effect of the explosion of the Louisiana, that it fairly shook us all out of our seats and threw the Harriet La

Next day the Presiourt House, to our right and rear, threatening our communications, and in position to reenforce Jackson or oppose McDowell, whose advance was then eight miles south of Fredericksburg. I ordered Gen Fort Monroe, was placed under my command. On the 2d the Secretary telegraphed that as soon as Jackson was disposed of in the Shenandoah, another large body of troops would be at my service; on the o join me as speedily as possible, and that it was clear that a strong force was operating with Jackson for the purpose of preventing the forces there from joining me. on the 26th the Secretary teexpedient. during the night of the 24th information arrived confirming the anticipation that Jackson was moving to attack our right and rear, but I persisted in the operation intended for the 25th

battle; after it they made not another step forward, but employed themselves industriously in intrenching. In a publication of mine [ Johnston's narrative ] made in 1874, I attempted to show that General Lee did not attack the enemy until June 26th, because he was engaged from June 1st until then in forming a great army, bringing to that which I had commanded 15,000 men from North Carolina under General Holmes, 22,000 from South Carolina and Georgia, and above 16,000 in the divisions of Jackson and Ewell. My authority for the 15,000 was General Holmes's statement, May 31st, that he had that number waiting the President's order to join me. When their arrival was announced, I supposed the number was as stated. General Ripley, their best-informed and senior officer, was my authority for the 22,000 from South Carolina and Georgia. I thought, as a matter of course, that all of these troops had been brought up for the great crisis. Mr. Davis is eager to prove that but 2 of the 4 b

After the battle of Seven Pines, General Lee determined to defend Richmond on the line then held by his army. This fact, in connection with the success of General Jackson in freeing the Shenandoah Valley of Union forces, restored the confidence of the people at Richmond. A large draft of soldiers from the ranks furnished a laboring force to build intrenchments, and slaves in the counties around Richmond were

cordiality which at such times tempered his usual stately dignity, said: Wise, you know, as well as I do, what the army regulations say about profanity; but, as an old friend, let me ask you if that dreadful habit cannot be broken — and remind you that we have both already passed the meridian of life, etc. Seeing he was in for a sermon, and one that I could not answer, I replied: General Lee, you certainly play Washington to perfection, and your whole life is a constant reproach to me. Now I am perfectly willing that Jackson and yourself shall do the praying for the whole army of Northern Virginia; but, in Heaven's name, let me do the cussin‘ for one small brigade. Lee laughed and said, Wise, you are incorrigible, and then rejoined the ladies. Apropos of this a friend told me that, stopping at a farmer's in Appomattox after the surrender, he found the old man deriving comfort from but one thing, of which he frequently spoke: Any-how, Gineral Wise cussed the Yankees to the las

tails, but as it became subordinate to that against Jackson in the Shenandoah and was never completed as Fremonplan was not destined to be thoroughly tried. Stonewall Jackson, after his defeat by Kimball at Kernstown, MarValley, had ascended it as far as Harrisonburg, and Jackson observed him from Swift Run Gap in the Blue Ridge, hed Fremont, who was waiting for it at Petersburg. Jackson saw his opportunity and determined to join General is own operations in the Shenandoah. The object of Jackson in this movement is stated in his report of this cached McDowell, having marched 34 miles in 24 hours. Jackson had not fully concentrated his forces, and the Uniountain road. Franklin was reached on the 11th, but Jackson approached cautiously and did not reach there till re abandoned.
