it could be readily repaired. But the Nationals had no use for it. The port of Wilmington was closed to blockade-runners; and the town itself was to be the next object of visitation by Terry and Porter. The latter immediately ordered Lieutenant-Commander R. Chandler, commanding the Maumee, to buoy out the channel of New Inlet, when several of the lighter draught vessels went into the Cape Fear River. He also dispatched the gallant Cushing, See page 472. who was then in command of the Monticello, to ascertain the state of affairs on the right bank of the river. Cushing soon reported success, by raising the National flag over Fort Caswell and Smithville, Lieutenant Cushing displayed blockade-runner signal-lights, and decoyed two of them under the guns of Fort Caswell, where they were captured. They were laden with arms and other supplies for the Conspirators. when preparations were made for taking up the torpedoes, and ascending the river in the lighter vessels, the heavier be
ed-but-not-as-yet-built European-and-Old-Dominion steamers — Josiah, in his note to Governor Letcher, considerately promised to send free tickets for all, or nearly all the journey from Richmond to Boston, leaving the gratuitous cock-tails and juleps to the care of the Mayor of Boston, after the arrival of the way-worn and thirsty pilgrims. In this amiable letter, the enterprising Josiah dwelt in an eloquent way upon a variety of topics, and notably upon the warm friendship of the sage of Monticello (meaning Thomas Jefferson) for the sage of Quincy (meaning John Adams). Wherefore, in order that common friendship may be made strong and mutual confidence greatly increased, Josiah mentions the fact of the free tickets, and reiterates seductively his request: Will you come and take tea in the arbor? Now, when this polite summons, so festively different from the subpoenas which Virginia is wont to send to Massachusetts, was received by the Hon. John Letcher, he seems to have been either

My effective force are under 8,000-1,400 of whom are not yet armed. The reconnaissance was conducted by Acting Brigadier-General Carter and Colonel De Courcy. George W. Morgan, Brigadier-General Volunteers. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War. headquarters, Cumberland Ford, June 7, 1862. The following telegram has just been received: Somerset, Ky., June 7, 1862. Brigadier-General Morgan: Senators W. H. Busteed and J. S. Van Winkle, both reliable men, have fled here from Monticello. They report 400 rebel cavalry m Clinton County, 250 in Burkesville, and 160 in Jamestown, Tenn. They are killing and robbing as they go. They threatened this place, and say the stores, &c., left here shall be destroyed. The loyal citizens of Clinton are almost in despair, &c. G. H. McKINNEY. My command, already reduced by sending the Forty-ninth Indiana Regiment to Barboursville, is too small to afford succor to Somerset. Assistant Quartermaster McKinney belongs to my division,
nced by Jacksonborough Aug. 22. across the Cumberland range, through Big Creek Gap, moving as rapidly as possible, with a very light train ; his men subsisting mainly on green corn — which is scarce enough in that poor, thinly-peopled region — his hungry, foot-sore, dusty followers buoyed up with the assurance of plenty and comfort ahead. His cavalry advance, 900 strong, under Col. J. S. Scott, moving Aug. 13. from Kingston, Tenn., passed through Montgomery and Jamestown, Tenn., and Monticello and Somerset, Ky., to London, where it surprised Aug. 17. and routed a battalion of Union cavalry, inflicting a loss of 30 killed and wounded and 111 prisoners; thence pushing on, making additional captures by the way, to Richmond, Ky.; thence falling back to rejoin Smith, who had not yet come up. The Cumberland Mountains are a broad range of table-land, some 2,000 feet in average height, descending sharply to the upper waters of the Tennessee and Cumberland on either hand, and pierc
points to which it was directed. Each wing had its separate and efficient pontoon train. Gen. Sherman marched and camped first with one wing, then with the other. Moving rapidly to Atlanta, Nov. 14. Howard advanced thence by McDonough, Monticello, and Clinton, to Gordon; Nov. 23. while Slocum advanced by Covington, Madison, and Eatonton, concentrating on Milledgeville, Nov. 23. which was entered without opposition; Sherman thus far accompanying the 14th corps, which was the last tel works, having two guns. Dismounting Murray's brigade, Kilpatrick attacked and carried the works, capturing 50 prisoners; Atkins's brigade soon after charging the fleeing foe, and taking their guns. Kilpatrick pushed thence by McDonough and Monticello to Clinton; whence he made a dash at Macon, driving in the enemy's cavalry; but was unable to carry the defenses, which were held by infantry and artillery. He burned a train of cars, and broke up the railroad; covering all the roads which div
of the enemy were fired, this feu d'enfer driving them all to their bomb-proofs. The small gunboats Kansas, Unadilla, Pequot, Seneca, Pontoosuc, Yantic, and Huron took positions to the northward and eastward of the monitors, and enfilading the works. The Shenandoah, Ticonderoga, Mackinaw, Tacony, and Vanderbilt took effective positions as marked on the chart, and added their fire to that already begun. The Santiago de Cuba, Fort Jackson, Osceola, Chippewa, Sassacus, Rhode Island, Monticello, Quaker City, and Iosco dropped into position according to order, and the battle became general. In one hour and fifteen minutes after the first shot was fired, not a shot came from the fort. Two magazines had been blown up by our shells, and the fort set on fire in several places; and such a torrent of missiles were falling into and bursting over it that it was impossible for anything human to stand it. Finding that the batteries were silenced completely, I directed the ships to keep up

tions, while the retreat of the other regiments was made. They were ordered by Crittenden to halt within four miles of Monticello, and form a line of battle, to draw on the enemy for another fight. The regiments halted at Mrs. Roberts', at the poinarly Monday morning, and were exposed before the officers in their consultation at Mrs. Roberts's, within four miles of Monticello, where they had been ordered by Crittenden to halt. When the consultation of the officers was being held, Crittenden rode off hastily to Monticello. Col. Battle told the brigade that they had been sold. The regiment then proceeded to Monticello, and upon their arrival Gen. Crittenden was found at the Houston Hotel, in his bed, deeply intoxicated. He was immediaMonticello, and upon their arrival Gen. Crittenden was found at the Houston Hotel, in his bed, deeply intoxicated. He was immediately arrested, and is now a prisoner of war, held by Cols. Stanton, Battle, Stratham, and Newman. The papers discovered are said to reveal the character of our fortifications at Mill Spring, the number of our troops, and the amount of provisions on h
od, That stung her to the heart. Rebellion's steel Pierced the fair bosom of imperial Rome By foreign foes unconquered; and the land Of God's own people drank the fatal cup Which dark dissension pressed upon her lips. As midnight's bell proclaims with double tongue One year departed and another born, Swift throng around me with imperial mien And god-like brow, and eyes of sad reproach, As angels look in sorrow, the great dead Who walked Mount Vernon's shades, and Marshfield's plains, And Monticello's height, and Ashland's groves Still vocal with unearthly eloquence-- Statesmen and Chiefs who loved their native land And led her up to fame. With solemn air And thrilling voice they point to freedom's flag, War-rent and laced with sacrificial blood By noble martyrs shed; and thus they speak-- “O sons once named Americans, but now The world-mocked orphans of a nameless land, Why rush ye to destruction? Happier far Than ye the tawny tribes your fathers drove From the primeval forests —
