ge of men through the city. Fort McHenry was at this time under command of Captain John C. Robinson, of the United States army. It was in a defenseless condition, and it was rumored that an attack would be made upon it by a mob on Saturday night. It was feared that if this was done the guns of the fort might be turned on the city, and naturally such an idea caused much disquiet. Police Commissioner John W. Davis visited the commandant and offered a guard of 200 men to be stationed on Whetstone Point to arrest any disorderly persons who might approach. Captain Robinson distrusted such a guard, and said they must not approach nearer the fort than the Catholic chapel or he would fire on them. Mr. Davis talked with most of the officers and all of them were cordial and courteous except a young subaltern, who threatened, in case of attack, to direct the fire of a cannon at Washington's Monument. To this threat Mr. Davis replied: If you do that, and if a woman or child is killed, the

ns, with Stuart and Forrest and Kirby Smith, and Taylor and many another, to fight such battles as the two at Manassas, the seven at Richmond, the two at Fredericksburg, and the bloody fields of Gettysburg, the Wilderness, Chancellorsville and Spotsylvania. Great publicists like Chase and O'Conor and Evarts knew that the law and the custom of nations did not look upon such deeds as those of a traitor, and that the world stood agast at the effort to thus debase the principles of international feeling confident that with this mighty force he could beat down all opposition to his straight march on Richmond. General Lee met him in the Wilderness with but 60,000 men, and that straight line was deflected to the left, and still again at Spotsylvania, where he had hoped to resume his direct march, and this left-flank forward movement was continued until Cold Harbor was reached, but a few miles from Richmond, and here again he found the Confederate army disputing his further progress.

e Mr. Davis was brought to trial Messrs. Horace Greeley, Cornelius Vanderbilt, and Gerrit Smith offered themselves as bondsmen on any bail bond which might be required of him, and were among the obligors when it was finally taken, nearly two years after the tender was made. An indictment against Davis was found in the Circuit Court of the United States for the District of Virginia. on the 8th of May, 1866. It presented— Jefferson Davis, late of the city of Richmond, in the county of Henrico, in the district of Virginia, aforesaid, yeoman, being an inhabitant of and residing within the United States of America, not having the fear of God before his eyes nor weighing the duty of his said allegiance, but being moved and seduced by the instigation of the devil, and wickedly devising, intending the peace and tranquility of the said United States of America to disturb, and the Government of the said United States of America to subvert, and to stir, move, and incite insurrection, reb

y T. Johnson, the distinguished Maryland exCon-federate, writes to the Sun as follows, giving some hitherto unpublished military dispatches connected with the operations of Maryland troops in the battles around Richmond in 1864: Among your collection of unpublished military dispatches you may include these two, which have never been printed. In October, 1863, I was ordered by General Lee to assemble the Maryland Line, then in separate commands in the Army of Northern Virginia—except the Latrobe Battery, which was with the Army of the Southwest —at Hanover Junction, to guard the five long, high bridges there, over the North Anna, the South Anna, and the Middle river, all within a mile or two of each other, and which were vital for Lee's communication with the Valley, with Richmond, and thence the whole South. I there collected the Second Maryland Infantry, First Maryland Cavalry, First Maryland Artillery, Captain Dement; Second Maryland Artillery, Captain Griffin (the Baltimore

tion. Now, contrast with all these orders and all this conduct on the part of the Federal officers and soldiers, the address of General Early to the people of York, Pa., when our army invaded that State in the Gettysburg campaign; or, better still, the order of General Robert E. Lee to his army on that march. We will let that odier in the Confederate army understood better than General Early the rules of civilized warfare, or was more opposed to vandalism in every form. His conduct at York, Pa., before referred to, and his address to the people of that town, show this in the most satisfactory manner. He says: I have abstained from burning the rair to Washington and allowing the troops to march on the city during his absence, he desired that the troops should, if it were practicable, be sent back at once to York or Harrisburg. General Scott adopted the President's view, and an order was prepared by the Lieutenant-General to that effect and forwarded to Major Belger, who a

For two years he was at Carmago, on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande. Having attained his promotion as surgeon at Jefferson Barracks, Mo., he was ordered to duty with the troops which went as advance guard across the plains before the great emigration of 1849, and was en route to, and on duty at, Fort Laramie, Ore., now Wyoming Territory, until August, 1851. In January, 1852, he was again ordered to Texas, under Division Commander General Persifer F. Smith; remaining a few months in San Antonio; thence to duty at Brownsville 'till November, 1854; then to Fort Columbus, Governor's Island, New York harbor, until July, 1855, and thence to the United States Military Academy at West Point, where he remained 'till April, 1860; subsequent to which, 'till his resignation, he was the medical purveyor at New Orleans, La. Though a great lover of his country and his State, he was not a politician, and was greatly distressed in mind as to where his duty called, at the same time and in lik

I observe your mistake in saying the position was held by the heroic men of the Virginia in the engagement at Drewry's Bluff on the 15th of May, 1862. The guns in the fort were in charge of soldiers for the most part drawn from the county of Chesterfield, who had been stationed there from the breaking of the first ground, contributing much from their own means and drawing largely upon their friends to assist in the work, and were under my command, as may be attested by the order of General Randolph, then Secretary of War, now in my possession, promoting me to major of artillery, and in the body of my appointment directing me to remain in command of Fort Drewry. It cannot be shown that the crew of the Virginia fired a shot from this fort

Dr. Moore was educated in Charleston, S. C.; graduated in medicine in 1834; became assistant surgeon in the United States army, March 14, 1835; surgeon (rank of major), April 30, 1849, and resigned February 25, 1861. From the date of his appointment as assistant surgeon he was on active duty at Fort Leavenworth, Fort Des Moines, Fort Gibson, Mo., Fort Coffee, Kan., and numerous forts in Florida, until in 1843 he was stationed at camp Barrancas, Pensacola harbor, where he became acquainted with his future wife, her father being in command of a detail of the Seventh Regiment of United States Infantry, occupying the harbor defences—Forts Pickens and McRae. In the August after his marriage he accompanied his command to Aransas and Corpus Christi, on the Texas boundary, the Neuces river, preparatory to the movement t

th bloody hands to hospitable graves. In Baltimore the people were wild with excitement and indignation. It is difficult for men of this generation, who have grown up under different political conditions, to understand how the men of that generation viewed the prospect of coercing the Southern States to remain in the Union. The idea of permitting Northern troops to march through Maryland to make war on the South was regarded pretty much as we would now regard a proposal that troops from Canada should come through here for the same purpose, or that troops from Germany or England should be permitted to land at Locust Point. George William Brown, Mayor of Baltimore, who risked his life to protect the Massachusetts troops, telegraphed to the Governor of Massachusetts on April 20: Our people viewed the passage of armed troops of another State through the streets as an invasion of our soil and could not be restrained.
