prominent official said to him, Nims, we will have six guns ready for you when you return. The organization of the 2d Massachusetts and its service in the field has already been recorded in the pages of this book and this naturally includes the military career of its captain. A few quotations may serve to show the more personal side of Colonel Nims and the relations existing between the commander and his men. The following extract is from a letter written by an officer while at Franklin, La. Captain Nims is the hardest working officer I ever saw, always looking out for the interests of the battery and the men. Hardly ever in his quarters, nothing escapes his observation. He is a man of strict probity and has none of the minor vices, always reliable and reminds one of the hero Garibaldi. Although proud of his battery and its reputation, and pleased at anything written or said in its praise, he thoroughly detests personal flattery and indeed I would not venture to say this

, it was on duty until the surrender, July 8; immediately entering into camp within the works, it remained there during July and August, part of the time under command of Lieut. Ellis Mott; here it suffered much loss by disease, the command being reduced to 50 men. On August 31 it was temporarily attached to the 2d Massachusetts Battery, and with that organization took part in the Bayou Teche expedition, October and November, 1863, engaging in frequent skirmishes and meeting the enemy at Franklin, La., October 2; at Carrion Crow Bayou, October 15, and again on November 2. It went into camp with the 2d Battery at New Iberia, La., moving with it then to Franklin; here on Feb. 17, 1864, it joined the 6th Massachusetts Battery, remaining with it until March 6 when it united with Battery L, 1st U. S. Artillery. Attached to this organization, it took part in the Red River expedition, meeting the enemy in a skirmish at Pleasant Hill, La., April 7, and again in a more serious engagement, Ap

ng at Vicksburg in a somewhat battered condition. In December, 1862, Lieutenant Stevens was detached from duty on the Arkansas and ordered to proceed to Alexandria, La., to confer with Gen. Richard Taylor as to the best means of co-operating with him with a naval party. While endeavoring to carry out these orders, and before being able to gather vessels or arm them, he was attacked on the ship Cotton, in the Bayou Teche, January 18, 1863, and in the battle was killed. He was buried at Franklin, La., but his body has since been removed to Pendleton, S. C., and interred in the family burying ground of the West Side Episcopal church there. Colonel Peter F. Stevens, a younger brother of Gen. C. H. Stevens and of Lieut. H. K. Stevens, C. S. N., was born in Florida, June 22, 1830. At the breaking out of the Indian war in 1836, he, with his mother, elder brothers and sisters, was sent by his father to Pendleton, S. C. His father dying shortly after, the family remained in Pendleton,
Collision at sea. New Orleans, March 25. --The schooner Wm. Mason, from Franklin, La., bound to Baltimore, collided at sea with the ship Queen of the West, bound from Liverpool to Mobile. The former was sunk, and with her cargo is a total loss. The mate was drowned, but the captain and crew were saved, and taken into Mobile by the Queen of the West.
The sugar crop of 1861. --We copy the following interesting statement from the Franklin (La.) Banner, of the 31st ult.: There have been many speculations of late in relation to the growing sugar crop, as to its probable amount, the demand and the prices. As to the amount, if no storms or other unforeseen disasters occur to injure the crop, it will doubtless reach over 400,000 hhds. The crop is generally good through all the sugar-growing parishes. Under favorable circumstances, it may come up to 500,000 hhds. But half that amount this year would yield more profit to the planter than he could realize from a full crop. The West in prosperous times consumes 300,000 hhds. of Louisiana sugar. The blockade has cut off this market. Portions of Missouri and Kentucky will obtain a small amount, but the blockaded States will be the principal consumers. Texas can get no Louisiana sugar, except those portions that get their supplies through the Red River navigation. But she

It is made of the best steel, finely tempered and finished, with a solid and substantial metal handle. We believe it is Mr. K.'s intention to send it to Pensacola, in order that it may be used, should it be found necessary to make another attack on Wilson's Zouaves. Sugar making in St. Mary's. The last Franklin (La.) Banner says: Active measures are now being adopted in our parish preparatory to sugar making.--Some of our planters will commence rolling cane at once. Many have been kept back in their work by the continuous rains, and have a large quantity of wood still to haul. And most of the planters have yet to make hay, put up sugar cane, dig potatoes, &c., before they commence rolling cane. About the last of the month we expect to see nearly all of the furnaces in full blast. The late

in the price of this very desirable article of home consumption. The concluding sentences we cordially recommend for the adoption of our readers: There is every indication that the price of sugar must soon come down to a living rate. The large sale of this article which takes place in Charleston on the 31st instant, will help to reduce its value, while the certainty that an abundant supply will come from Louisiana are long, will also influence the market. We see it stated in the Franklin (La.) Banner, that active measures are now being adopted for sugar making. About the last of the month, that paper states, nearly all of the furnaces will be in full blast. The late cool nights and fine days have had a fine effect upon the cane, and the sugar crop of that parish alone will be quite heavy, probably forty thousand hogsheads. Consumers in Georgia ought to purchase lightly till better times come. The speculators in this article of prime necessity will yet be caught. Gen.
