orce, he withdrew in good order. In these actions General Shelby fought his brigade entirely mounted, and, time and again, the irresistible charge of his line thoroughly demoralized and completely routed the long and serried lines of the enemy's infantry, causing them great loss in killed, wounded and prisoners, while Collins's battery did most effective service, and almost exceeded its usual superlative excellence in the accuracy of the fire and the devoted bravery of the company. On the 4th, as afterward appeared, Steele commenced crossing his main army. Having concentrated Greene and Cabell in front of the ferry, posted the main portion of Cabell's brigade as a reserve on a naturally strong position at the edge of the bottom, with Greene's brigade, Colonel Greene commanding, one piece of Blocker's battery, under Lieutenant Zimmerman, Monroe's regiment, Colonel S. C. Monroe commanding, and a section of Hughey's battery under Lieutenant Miller, of Cabell's brigade, twelve hundre

and more of prudent discretion. As the Tenth Mississippi (Colonel Robt. A. Smith commanding, and who was subsequently killed in the battle of Mumsfordville, Ky., and than whom no braver spirit or better office gave up his life during the war, General Bragg's estimate of Colonel Smith may be seen from the following letter: Superintendent's office, water works Department commercial bank, New Orleans, Jan'y 22, 1868. Dear Sir:—It affords me great pleasure to receive your note of the 4th inst., enclosing the carte de visite of my late friend and fellow-soldier, Colonel Robert A.

To me his loss was severe, for I had looked to him for support, in a much higher and extended command. Please convey

Crossed the Appomattox River at Mattoax Station, upon a railway bridge, a very dangerous experiment, as the bridge was in a horrible condition. Lee's army is evidently making for Danville, Va., via Burkeville Junction. Camped near Mattoax Station. Wednesday, April 5th.—Marched all day and night; passed through Amelia Cour
