NOTE.

In closing the second volume of the Rebellion Record, which covers
a period most eventful in the history of the United States, the Editor
embraces the opportunity to return his grateful acknowledgments for
the many acts of assistance and encouragement he has received from
various portions of the country. In particular, Le refers to the officerf-
of the National army, who have so readily afforded him the use of their
valuable official documents ; to the Hon. Joseph Holt, for the interest
he has manifested in the progress of the work, and for the aid he has
rendered in consenting to revise some of the most important docu-
ments ; to the Hon. Reverdy .Johnson, Hon. Daniel S. Dickinson, and
others, for similar favors ; to the members of the Press, who have, with
their usual courtesy, extended every facility for the advantageous
prosecution of the work ; and last, though not least, to the subscribers
to the " Record," who have, from time to time, forwarded to the Editor
much of the local material, facts, and incidents, that will be found in
the present volume.

It is intended to give a supplementary volunie-of ^r.:i^ch documents
and narratives as may have been lost sight of in th^^ large mass of
matter that has passed under review, and the remark is-heie renewed
that " the Editor will be glad to receive from subsciibens^ any Material
having a reference to the present Rebellion," for this purpose.

New York, January^ 1862.

DIARY.



JUNE 19, 1S61.

The probabilities are, that the next few days
"will witness the most momentous developments
in the history of the continent. The iispect of
affairs in Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky, Ten-
nessee, and Missouri betokens the prrfximity of
a crisis — of collisions upon the result of which
depends much of the future. The preparations
on the border, on both sides, indicate move-
ments which may determine, and will be certain
largely to mfluence, the result of the contro-
versy between the hostile sections. The points
towards which public interest will be generally
directed are : Fort Pickens, before which the
Confederates have the best appointed and ap-
plied army ever organized in this country, and
commanded by an officer whose high renown
attaches to his name the prestige of success.
The signs of the times are, that public expec-
tations in this quarter will soon be relieved.
