THE ASSASSINATION OF GENERAL NELSON BY GENERAL JEFFERSON C. DAVIS.—SKETCHED BY MR. H. MOSLER.—[SEE PAGE 671.]

ON THE UPPER POTOMAC.

MR. DAVIS sends us the Hagerstown pictures given below. One of these represents the Confederate troops helping themselves to flour at Mr. Hager's

mills. Mr. Hager advised them to be quick and eat it, or it might not benefit them much. The event proved his wisdom, for our cavalry recaptured a part of the wagon train containing this identical flour.

The depot at Hagerstown is a scene of wild activity. Immense stores of all kinds are pouring in for the sustenance of the army; every available foot of space is covered with barrels, bales, and boxes.

Another picture by Mr. Davis, which we reproduce on page 662, introduces us to WILLIAMSPORT, on the Upper Potomac. Some of our troops are represented as fording the river, which, at the time Mr. Davis made his sketch, was barely knee-deep.
