Calhoun would Lib. 6.26, 34. not trust Congress with the power to determine what was incendiary, and what tended to excite insurrection: the abolitionists would in time form a great political party, and might thus become the judges of their own incendiarism. Moreover, he admitted that to prohibit circulation is in effect to prohibit publication, and hence an abridgment of the liberty of the press. He therefore insisted on the historically reserved rights of the State Benton considered Calhoun's argument on this point the corner-stone of the doctrine of nullification, and its corollary, that the laws of nations were in full force between the several States, as sovereign and independent communities except as modified by the compact (Thirty years view, 1.581). to preserve internal peace, and reported a bill Annual Report Mass.

h Georgia under Longstreet, and participated in the skirmish on Lookout Mountain just after the battle of Chickamauga, the affair on Raccoon Mountain, and the battle of Missionary Ridge, in the meantime having been transferred to the Twenty-fourth regiment, Gist's brigade, Walker's division, Hardee's corps, army of Tennessee. During the struggle from Chattanooga to Atlanta he was in continued service of the most arduous nature, and did the part of a true soldier of the South at Resaca, Calhoun Station, New Hope Church, Cass Station, Kenesaw Mountain, Peach Tree Creek, the Atlanta battle of July 22, 1864, Jonesboro, and the skirmish near Lovejoy Station, where he was wounded in the breast, after the abandonment of Atlanta. He marched with Hood's army in the subsequent operations against Sherman's communications, was engaged at Dalton, Ga., Decatur, Ala., Columbia, Tenn., and in the severe battle at Franklin was in positions of the greatest peril, receiving six or seven bullet holes i
lroad is effectually destroyed at Jackson, so that it will take thirty days to repair it. This will leave a march of fifty miles over which the enemy will have to subsist an army, and bring their ordnance stores with teams. My position is so strong that I could hold out for several days against a vastly superior force. I do not see how the enemy could possibly maintain a long attack under these circumstances. I will keep a close watch on the enemy, however. There is a force now at Calhoun station, on the Mississippi Central, about six miles north of Canton. This is the force that escaped from Jackson, augmented by a few thousand men from the coast cities, intending to reach the latter place before the attack, but who failed to reach in time. In the various battles, from Port Gibson to Black river bridge, we have taken near six thousand prisoners, besides killed, wounded, and scattered a much larger number. The enemy succeeded in retreating to Vicksburg, with only three pie

his battle was the crowning work of the operations conducted by Grant with equal audacity and skill since his landing at Bruinsburg. In outflanking Pemberton's left along the slopes of Champion's Hill he had completely cut off the latter from all retreat north. Notwithstanding the very excusable error he had committed in stopping Logan's movement for a short time, the latter had through this manoeuvre secured victory to the Federal army. Johnston had passed the whole of the 16th at Calhoun Station, waiting for news and resting his little army, worn out by conflicts that were always followed by speedy retreats. He had received in the evening at Livingston a despatch from Pemberton, written that very morning, in which the latter announced his determination of marching north, and minutely describing the route which his chief had to follow in order to bring about the much-desired junction near Edwards' Station. Upon the morning of the 17th, Johnston had put his troops in motion, le
