Doc. 136. siege of Cotton Hill, Va., October 30 to November 7, 1861. A correspondent at the camp of the Second Kentucky regiment, in Western Virginia, gives the following account of the siege: camp Tompkins, Western Virginia, Nov. 8, 1861. For the past eight days the roar of artillery and musketry has been the only music we have danced to, and even while I write the booming of cannon still falls on my weary ear. The camp of our Second Kentucky regiment and the Headquarters of Generals Rosecrans and Cox are situated on top of Gauley Mount, on the farm of Colonel Tompkins, now in the rebel army, a gentleman of strong Southern proclivities, a graduate of West Point, and formerly in the United States army. This farm is his summer residence, he and his wife being residents of Richmond; she now occupies the house with her family, while he is somewhere in the neighborhood, assisting Floyd in driving the invaders from the soil. From our camp the road descends abruptly to the ri

Doc. 140. Col. Grensle's proclamation. November 8, 1861. To the People of the Town of Houston and County of Texas, Missouri: I have this day placed upon your beautiful court house the flag of our Union. I leave it in your charge and protection. If taken down by rebel hands, I will return here and pillage every house in the town owned by secessionists or those who sympathize with rebels. Any outrages hereafter committed upon Union men or their families, will be returned on the secessionists twofold. Property taken from Union men by the rebels, in or out of the county, must be returned immediately. I hereby give the rebels ten days to make good all losses sustained by Union families in Texas County. If neglected, the consequences be upon your heads. I shall soon return to your county, and shall see that this proclamation is complied with to the letter. If you wait for me to execute it, I will do it with a vengeance. N. Grensle, Colonel Commanding.

onsul at Paris for the Federal Government during the war. His efforts to circumvent the construction of Confederate cruisers were untiring and in great measure successful in keeping in check the foreign tendency to encourage the division of the United States. At the very outset of this diplomatic struggle the Federal Government narrowly escaped becoming involved in war with England when Captain Charles Wilkes, in the San Jacinto, seized Mason and Slidell aboard the British steamer Trent, Nov. 8, 1861. Had not the captain of the Trent forgotten to throw his vessel on the hands of Captain Wilkes as a prize, hostilities could scarcely have been prevented. While Mason and Slidell were paving the way with diplomacy, a commission of Confederate naval officers, with headquarters in London, were striving energetically to arrange for the purchase and building of vessels to be used as blockade-runners or privateers. Particularly active among these officers was Captain James Newland Maffit, C
