"Both General Sherman and Gov
ernor Vance are mistaken in relation
tothe character of ray services in con
nection with - the negotiations' with
Gen. Sherman that have been alluded
to iii the present controversy," said
Dr, Warren. "I was a member of the
Governor's staff and one of the mili
tary officers in charge of the flag of
truce under which the commission
proceeded to Gen. Sherman's head
quarters. The facts, in brief, were
these : ;
"The war was about concluded, and
the Confederate forces under General
Joseph E. Johnston were . in camp in
and about Raleigh, N. C Sherman
began to approach with his -victorious
troops from the direction of Golds-
boro. Gen. Johnston retired to the
west of Raleigh with the main portion
of his army, leaving that city uncov
ered, with the exception of General
Wade Hamptons command of caval-
ry, wincti was posted as a picket line
between the city and the enemy.
"Uov. Vance then had a cousulta-
ion with Gen. Hardee, the ranking
Confederate commander nearest him,
he members of his 6tafF and persons
of distinction in the cityv It was de-
termineu to make an enort to save
Raleigh from the fate of Columbia,
which had just been burned. With
this end iu view Gov. Vance selected
and dispatched a commission, compos
ed of sHjX -Governor Graham and Ex
Governor Swaim, both of whom are
now dead. Gov. Graham had been
Secretary. of the United States Navv
in the cabinet of Mr. lilmore, and a
candidate Jor the Vice Presidency
when General Scott was the Presi
dential candidate. Mr. Swain had
been Governor of the State, and was
then the president of the University
of ortn Carolina, ihese two pen
tlemen were citizens of the highes
character and position. They, as com
missioners, were sent under a flag o
truce, which was accorded them by
Gen. Hardee, and it was accompanied
byj Mai. Dovereux, Coli Burr, of Wil
mington, and myself as a military
self a medical oficer and asked lsthe
protection of therson iu commanct.
The officer: immediately rode iup and
said that he was Colonel Godfrey, of
Gen.lKilpatrick's stafl; Wheh jliold
him tliat I was Surgeon perieral of
the State oforth Carolina he said:
'AH right ; but keep close !to rae.' I
then sprang to the ground and ap
proached him, and 1 at the same mo
ment! looked, towards the back of tlie
car t0 see if my corarads were safe. I
saw thecommissioners and my broth
er officers descending from it. u

Nis toj Gen. KilpatrickV headquarters,
some; half a mile distant, who receiv

acknowledge the official character of

ly hard for us to explain to his satis
faction whv we were traveling to
wards Raleigh with a nag of truce

send 'us to the rear and decide1 what

we wjent to the rear we had to pass a
number of Federal cavalry regiments,
and as the corumisioners wore liisrh
tats and were dressed in frock coats.
hey iwere objects of merriment to the
soldiers, who had not seen a man in
civilian's clothes' for months. The
commissioners, being all men of great
dignity, marched on without respond
ing to the chaff of the soldiers. We
were, taken back and confined in an
old house. We were kept in suspense
several hours before Geli. Kilpatrick
paid 'attention to us. When he did

JEFF. DAVIS ACTION. V
1 fUpon- reaching Geu Hampton's
headquarters there was the usual de
lay to perfect an arrangement between
military commanders, but in due time
Gen. .Sherman agreed to receive the
commissioners and flag of truce with
in his lines. We had passed beyond
our own pickets, aud were proceeding
to fulfill the mission upon -which we
had been dispatched, when an order
of recall was suddenly received from
Presideut Davis, who was then at
Charlotte, Nf C. This actidn'of the
Presideut was no doubt based upon a
serious misunderstanding of the por-
I poses of the commission, and is doubt

troversy. ' We of course turned back,

expected that before night North
Carolina would practically be back
to her original place in the Federal

stunned with the terrible intelligence

Geueral Sherman said that owing to
