manner, as the existing corps of topographical engineers. The bill was passed without amendment. In the Senate, on the fifth, the bill was taken up for consideration, and Mr. Wilson moved to amend by striking out all after the enacting clause, anMay sixteenth, 1846. On the third of August, the bill was considered and passed without amendment. In the House, on the fifth, Mr. Blair, from the Committee on Military Affairs, to whom the Senate bill had been referred, reported it back with an aier-generals in the army and volunteers, which was read twice, and referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. On the fifth, Mr. Wilson reported it back with an amendment. It provided for the appointment of twenty major-generals, and two hundre on Military Affairs. On the fourth of February, Mr. Wilson reported it back, with an amendment as a substitute. On the fifth, the Senate, on motion of Mr. Wilson, proceeded to the consideration of the bill, the pending question being upon the ame
Port Royal, to prevent the crossing of the Yankees at or near that point. Four Yankee gunboats were then lying opposite the town. Rifle-pits were constructed above the town on the night of the fourth, to prevent the pirates from ascending; and Hardaway's Whitworth gun was placed on Jack's Hill, some three miles below the town, and his remaining two guns, with Carter's Parrott's, were placed on the hill due west of the town. Hardaway opened upon the gunboats about three o'clock, on the fifth instant. Finding the fire too hot for them, they fled back to town, where they were sheltered from Carter's fire. Hardaway continued to pelt them; and, to stop his fire, (as is supposed,) the ruffians commenced shelling the town, full of women and children. The town was partially destroyed, but a merciful God kindly protected the inoffensive inhabitants. A dog was killed and a negro wounded; no other living being was injured. Finding that Hardaway's fire did not slacken, the pirates fled do

M. a six-inch rifled solid s taken by this vessel in the action of the fifth instant with the rebel ram. I first sighted theowing report of ammunition expended on the fifth instant, in the action with the iron-clad ram Alben Albemarle Sound, on the afternoon of the fifth instant: One shot struck smoke-stack, and passe of the Sassacus, in the engagement of the fifth instant, in relation to the capture of the Bombshensort, the rebel steamer Bombshell, on the fifth instant. In ramming the Albemarle, we had a a stathe first time since the engagement of the fifth instant. He came down in sight of the picket boat
as long as there was light enough to continue the pursuit. At daylight on the fifth, reconnoitring parties discovered that he had disappeared from our side of the he road, and connect my left with the right of General Pender. On Tuesday, the fifth, the skirmishers were ordered to press forward and feel the enemy, and ascertaied near Banks's Ford during the balance of the night, and the next evening, the fifth, in a severe storm of wind and rain, advanced to within two miles of Chancellorble, amounting to six killed, and eighty-three wounded. On Thursday, the fifth instant, about two o'clock P. M., I received orders to move my command immediately with the enemy in this vicinity, commencing on the first and ending on the fifth instant: On the twenty-ninth ultimo orders were received to be ready to move at a mll into our hands the next day, and many were killed. The morning of the fifth instant the brigade moved in the direction of Chancellorsville, in common with the
nd question are modified in some instances by the opinion that the rebels will fall back behind the Tennessee River, and thus no battle can be fought, either successful or unsuccessful. So far as these opinions can be stated in tabular form, they will stand thus:-- Answer to first question,6 Yes. 11 No. Answer to second question,2 Yes. 11 No. Answer to third question,4 Yes. 10 No. Answer to fourth question,0 Yes. 15 No. Answer to fifth question,0 Yes. 2 No. On the fifth question, three gave it as their opinion that this *army ought to advance as soon as Vicksburg falls, should that event happen. The following is a summary of the reasons assigned why we should not, at this time, advance upon the enemy :-- 1. With Hooker's army defeated, and Grant's bending all its energies in a yet undecided struggle, it is bad policy to risk our only reserve army to the chances of a general engagement. A failure here would have most disastrous effects on our lines of
st brigade was immediately put in motion under this order, and, under the skilful management of Colonel Buell, was thrown across the river rapidly and without accident during the night. Early on the morning of the third, I moved with the Third brigade and the ammunition and ambulance trains to the crossing, and with the energetic and judicious assistance of Colonel Harker, had everything passed rapidly across without accident. I remained encamped at Shellmound until Saturday afternoon, the fifth, awaiting orders, the delay being occasioned by the necessity of waiting for the supply trains, which had been sent across the river at Bridgeport. During the afternoon of the fifth I received an order to move with the two brigades of my division with me, via Whiteside and the river road, to the junction of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad with the Trenton Railroad, for the purpose of observing and threatening the enemy posted on the spur of Lookout Mountain. I advanced as far as W
. The Fourth United States cavalry, which was this day first under my control, behaved very handsomely. Captain Otis' command acted independently until the fifth instant, when they came under my command. The duty of the cavalry was very arduous. From the twenty-sixth of December till the fourth of January, the saddles were , which he gallantly repulsed. On the third skirmishing took place throughout the day. On the fourth all was quiet in front, the enemy having disappeared. On the fifth nothing of importance occurred, and on the sixth I moved my division to its present camp on Stone River, three miles south of Murfreesboro on the Shelbyville pikede was assigned to the Eighth division. This brigade distinguished itself on the evening of the second, in a desperate charge on the enemy. On the morning of the fifth, I was ordered to take command of the advance, and pursue the enemy toward Murfreesboro. By nine A. M., the Eighth division, Walker's brigade (pioneer brigade),
of forces from other of the military subdivisions of the Department. On the fifth of the month, the enemy's iron-clads, of the monitor class, appeared, and ancho been kept up to the present time on the land movements of the enemy. On the fifth, the iron-clad fleet of the abolitionists, consisting of seven monitors and onehe iron-clad fleet of the abolitionists on the seventh of this month: On the fifth, the attacking fleet, consisting of eight turreted gunboats and the steam-friga side. Only the usual duties occurred in other parts of the command. On the fifth, the two ten-inch guns and other armament of Battery Wagner were in readiness fction, and to make room in the bomb-proof, where several men had fainted on the fifth, from excessive heat and foul air. Major Gardner was ordered to cover the retre every kindness to the wounded and stunned, which poured in from sunrise on the fifth, till the evening of the sixth. He left about half-past 10, leading his ambula
son, to move all available forces to Vicksburg as rapidly as possible. On the morning of the third, two of the enemy's barges, loaded with hospital and commissary stores, were destroyed in attempting to pass the batteries at Vicksburg. On the fifth, I telegraphed General Johnston that: Six thousand cavalry should be used to keep my communications open, and that the enemy advancing on me was double what I could bring into the field. To the Honorable Secretary of War I sent the following telus. On the night of the third, a messenger was sent to General Pemberton with information that an attempt to create a diversion would be made, to enable him to cut his way out, and that I hoped to attack the enemy about the seventh. On the fifth, however, we learned the fall of Vicksburg, and, therefore, fell back to Jackson. The army reached Jackson the evening of the seventh, and on the morning of the ninth, the enemy appeared in heavy force in front of the works thrown up for the d
on that side, and he accordingly returned to Morgantown. On the third of November, Colonel Dibrell crossed the Little Tennessee, with about seven hundred men, but found the enemy in too great force in his front to permit him to make any decided move. The results of these scouts in eliciting information were promptly communicated to you by telegraph. On the fourth of November I received orders by telegraph to send two of the brigades of Cheatham's division to Tyner's by railroad on the fifth, and the remaining two on the sixth, and immediately thereafter to send the two brigades of my own division. On the eighth instant I received orders from the commanding General to leave Brigadier-General Cumming to bring on my division, and report in person at army headquarters as soon as possible after the arrival of Lieutenant-General Longstreet at Sweetwater. He reached that point on the night of the ninth, and, as directed, I left Sweetwater on the morning of the tenth, arriving at Tyn
