CAMP OF UNITED STATES VOLUNTEERS AT THE RELAY HOUSE,-[PHOTOGRAPHED BY WEAVER.]

ANOTHER WAR MAP.

BELOW we publish another of the series of WAR Maps which have constituted so prominent a feature

 in Harper's Weekly during the past few months. This one will be found especially valuable for reference. It shows the whole coast-line of the United States from Cape Henry to the Rio Grande, and

the ports to be blockaded by our vessels of war; also the strategic points round Washington and Baltimore; Cairo, its strategic relations, and the course of the Mississippi ; Fortress Monroe, at the

mouth of the Chesapeake, Forts Taylor and Jefferson, at the Tortugas, and Fort Pickens, Pensacola, all held by the United States ; the great lines of railway by which troops will be transported, etc.
