e last vehicle had crossed the creek. The opinion is ventured that the history of military operations affords no instance where a train of like magnitude and value was moved so great a distance in the presence of the enemy, and in the face of so many material obstacles, with so trifling loss. As soon as the train was fairly out of the way I brought the rear guard to this side, where I established my line of battle, along the crest of the creek, my left resting on the James river. On the fourth I called the attention of the General-in-Chief to the advantages of this line, and after an examination he was pleased to adopt it. The timber on the opposite side has been slashed down to the James, also in the ravine and up to the crest of the creek on one side, which is lined with rifle-pits and batteries. Numerous roads have been cut, giving free communication between the reserves and the front. General Ferry, with Thirty-ninth Illinois, Thirteenth Indiana, Sixty-second and Sixty-sev

, and was thanked by him in orders. The President made General Meade the successor of General Hooker, with the concurrence of all his leading officers. This evidence is in harmony with all that of the army of Suffolk. In my possession is a communication from General Hill to Lieutenant-General Longstreet, commanding department of Virginia and North Carolina, in which he reports the arrival of a division, and asks for orders. It bears date second May, 1863, and fell into our hands on the fourth, as also did Longstreet's servants and horses, a few miles from Suffolk. This division came by the Weldon railway to Franklin, and marched twenty miles, being engaged, on the third, at Suffolk. Had Longstreet wished to send troops to Chancellorsville (third), why did not this division keep the rail? By coming to Suffolk it lost more than two full days. Longstreet's army did not pass through Richmond until after the tenth of May. The rear guard left the Blackwater on the eleventh, an

Thomas, Adjutant-General, U. S. A: Sir: There is much in this report that the Honorable Secretary of War should see, and as I am no longer in the Department of Virginia and North Carolina, I hasten to transmit the same with the request that General Butler may be furnished a copy. On the fourth inst., Colonel F. Beach, United States army, second in command at Plymouth, reported to me in person, that General Hoke informed General Wessells and himself, that the works I had constructed, since Pickett's demonstration at Newbern in February, saved that place from attack at that time. The works referred to are those pronounced unnecessary by General Butler. In my correspondence, the belief is uniformly expressed that. the Confederates would attempt to drive us from Eastern North Caroli
and Sixth Missouri Cavalry Volunteers, under Captain Prewitt. I had skirmishes with guerillas and bushwhackers, in Mississippi, Stoddard, New Madrid, Pemiscot and Duncan counties, Arkansas, killing considerable numbers of them. We had quite a brisk running fight at Osceola, Arkansas, on the second instant, with Bowen's and McVaigh's companies, of Shelby's command. We captured their camp, killing seven, and took twenty-five prisoners, including Captain Bowen, their commander. On the fourth, at Elksehula, we fought the Second Missouri rebel cavalry, and Conyer's Guthrie's and Darnell's bands of guerrillas, all under the command of Colonel Cowan. We routed them completely, killed and mortally wounded about thirty, and slightly wounded (those who escaped in the swamps, as I am informed by prisoners subsequently captured), between thirty and forty, and took twenty-eight prisoners. We lost Captain Francis, Third cavalry, Missouri State Militia, mortally wounded, and two others

A little after daylight, the Fourth, Fourteenth, Twentieth and Fifteenth corps took up their march for Marietta, and, after a running skirmish with Wheeler's cavalry and the rebel pickets, of whom iles south of. the town. July fourth was passed in the usual skirmishing with the enemy, and in driving his pickets with our skirmishers. During the night of the fourth, the enemy abandoned his ninth line of works, and retreated toward the Chattahoochee river. Pursuit was made early in the morning of the fifth, my division leadit instant, participating in it from behind our works, and on the second moved forward to near Lovejoy's Station, remaining in position there till the night of the fourth, when it moved back to Jonesboroa, and on the sixth and seventh to this point. I learn from the records of the division, that it left Larkinsville, Alabama, in
sitive orders for the movement of our forces at Monocacy, lest by so doing I should expose Washington. Therefore, on the fourth, I left City Point to visit Hunter's command, and determine for myself what was best to be done. On arrival there, and as above and below Johnsonville, on the opposite side of the river, isolating three gunboats and eight transports. On the fourth the enemy opened his batteries upon the place, and was replied to from the gunboats and the garrison. The gunboats becom General Ord moved for Burkesville along the Southside road, the Ninth corps stretched along that road behind him. On the fourth General Sheridan struck the Danville road near Jettersville, where he learned that Lee was at Amelia Court-house. He imm arsenal, armory, naval foundry, machine shops, vast quantities of stores, and captured three thousand prisoners. On the fourth he captured and destroyed Tuscaloosa. On the tenth he crossed the Alabama river, and after sending information of his op

Morgan's division reached Rogersville daring the evening of the fourth, having been delayed by high water in crossing Elk river; and on the same night Forrest passed through Lawrenceburg. A ry of quartermasters' stores, and forcing the enemy to destroy the gunboat No. 55, captured on the thirty-first. On the fourth the enemy opened on the gunboats, transports, and on the town, from batteries posted on the opposite bank of the river, t its appearance, when, crowding in our skirmishers, he commenced to establish his main line, which, on the morning of the fourth, we found he had succeeded in doing, with his salient on the summit of Montgomery Hill, within six hundred yards of our cssing of Overall's creek, five miles north of Murfreesboroa, was attacked by Bate's division of Cheatham's corps, on the fourth, but held out until assistance reached it from the garrison at Murfreesboroa. The enemy used artillery to reduce the blo

illery, with six light twelve-pounder guns. I was instructed to move them from their positions in the lines on the north side of the James river to Bermuda landing, in time to commence their embarkation on transport vessels at sunrise on the fourth instant. In obedience to these orders, the movement commenced at noon of the third instant. The troops arrived at the landing at sunset and there bivouacked for the night. The transports did not arrive as soon as they were expected. The firstturned to its camp from a demonstration against this point, received orders to prepare for a second expedition. It left camp on the third, and embarked on ocean transports at Bermuda Hundred, between the hours of seven and nine P. M., on the fourth instant. The transport fleet sailed from Fortress Mon roe on the morning of the sixth, and the troops disembarked some four miles north of Fort Fisher on the thirteenth instant. At three o'clock P. M. on the fifteenth we stormed Fort Fisher. B
the beginning of the spring campaign. The strong arm of the government is again extended toward the heart of the Confederacy, and we trust — how earnestly — that it may not fail to gain the prize which seems almost within its grasp. The iron-clad fleet which has been gathered near the mouth of this river has found another, if not a safer, anchorage. Until yesterday, we were not aware that the movement of the fleet in this matter would be made so soon. During the day, yesterday, the fourth instant, a number of new steamers, of the class familiarly called double-enders, came up from Hampton Roads, and joined the fleet which has for a few days been at anchor off Newport News, and which consisted of the iron-clads Roanoke, Onondaga, two turrets; Canonicus, Tecumseh and Saugus, one turret each, and the Atlanta; of double-enders, the Mackinaw and Eutaw; of gunboats, the Dawn, Osceola, Commodore Jones, Stepping Stone, and a large number of powerful armed tugs. Besides these there were

es from the Forty-second Indiana, to a position on the main road leading from the ford immediately in our front, to deploy his men on the right and left of the road, to watch the movements of the enemy, and to resist their approach as long as was prudent, and retire to the reserves when they approached in force. One section of artillery, under Lieutenant Peetz, was planted so as to fully command the road and the leading approach on our right and left. At six o'clock on the morning of the fourth, the enemy approached in force, and commenced an attack on the advance companies of Lieutenant-Colonel Drake, who resisted them gallantly for nearly two hours, being well supported by the artillery of Lieutenant Peetz. Too much praise cannot be awarded Colonel Drake for the very distinguished gallantry and determined courage he exhibited during this contest. The capture by his forces early in the morning of a rebel lieutenant — an aid-de-camp of General Marmaduke--confirmed me in the b
