Wednesday, Feb. 15. 1865

Raining this morning and all day foggy, drizzling weather, the snow is going off rapidly.  Maggie came down to tea, and spends the night here.  The news from Sherman is said to be encouraging, it is thought he has Branchville, & it is rumored that Charleston S. C. is evacuated -- There is talk of a secret arrangement between the French Emperor & the Rebels by which they are to be recognized the 1st of March & two iron-clads are to be sent to attack New York.
