Rebel reports and Narratives. General Lee's official report. headquarters army of Northern Virginia, 14 December, 1862. The Hon. Secretary of War, Richmond, Va.: sir: On the night of the tenth instant, the enemy commenced to throw three bridges over the Rappahannock--two at Fredericksburgh, and the third about a mile and a quarter below, near the mouth of the Deep Run. The plan on which Fredericksburgh stands is so completely commanded by the hills of Stafford, in possession of the enemy, that no effectual opposition could be offered to the construction of the bridges or the passage of the river, without exposing our troops to the destructive fire of his numerous batteries. Positions were, therefore, selected to oppose his advance after crossing. The narrowness of the Rappahannock, its winding course and deep bed, afforded opportunity for the construction of bridges at points beyond the reach of our artillery, and the banks had to be watched by skirmishers. The latt

W. halleck, General-in-Chief: General Kelley, on the tenth, attacked Imboden's camp, eighteen miles south of Moorefield, Hardy County, Virginia, routing him completely, killing and wounding many, and capturing his camps, fifty prisoners, a quantity of arms, and a large number of horses, cattle, hogs, wagons, etc. The enemy was entirely dispersed, and fled to the mountains. H. W. Gright, Major-General Commanding. Despatch from General Kelley. Moorefield, Hardy County, Nov. 10, 1862. To Governor Pierpont: I left New-Creek on Saturday morning, the eighth instant, and after a continuous march of twenty-four hours, a distance of about sixty miles, reached Imboden's camp on the South-Fork, eighteen miles south of this place, at half-past 6 o'clock yesterday morning. We attacked him at once and routed him completely, killing and wounding many of the enemy; also cap
n the same night, where we remained till the next morning, when we marched for Williamston in the midst of a severe snow-storm. At Williamston we remained a day, in order to give the men an opportunity to rest. At daylight the next day, the tenth instant, we started for Plymouth, where we arrived that night. The following day the troops were all reembarked at Newbern. During the engagement at Rawls's Mills and at Hamilton, we captured five prisoners, who were paroled at Williamston. The hey were tied to the rear of baggage-wagons, and compelled to follow the retreating rebels. On the ninth we marched eighteen miles from Williamston to within four miles of Plymouth, on the Roanoke River, at the head of Albemarle Sound. On the tenth our camp was moved to within one mile of Plymouth, and on the eleventh the troops commenced embarking for Newbern, via Albemarle and Pamlico Sounds and the river Neuse, arriving at this place late last evening. The results of the expedition ar
The loss of the enemy, including some prisoners taken by Gen. Dumont's forces upon the right bank of the river, was about three hundred men. Considering the casualties in the One Hundred and Fourth Illinois as equalling those in the One Hundred and Sixth Ohio, our own loss in killed, wounded and missing was about one hundred and fifty. Y. S. Letter from General Dumont. Gallatin, December 12, 1862. To the Editors of the Louisville Journal: gentlemen: In your daily issue of the tenth instant you speak in terms of severity of the recent surrender of troops at Hartsville, and make it the occasion of an assault upon me. Unconscious of ever having injured you or merited such treatment, I cannot in justice to myself and truth suffer such charges to go unnoticed; but in repelling them will endeavor to be as brief as the nature of what you have said and the facts will allow. After noticing the surrender, you say: We are not sure that any thing better was to be expected from
information of the Commanding General the result of a scout commanded by me in Marion County, Arkansas. By permission from Captain Flagg, commanding this post, I took command of forty men composed of detachments from companies D, F, G, and H, Second battalion, Fourteenth regiment cavalry Missouri State militia, and on the morning of the ninth instant marched for Lawrence's Mill, a distance of thirty-five miles. I arrived at the mill early in the night, and remained there till noon of the tenth, waiting for forage. During this time I held a consultation with the officers of my command and those of the enrolled militia stationed at the mill, in regard to the direction we should take. It had been my intention to make an expedition into the White River country below Dubuque, where it is said a band of marauders have a considerable number of horses. These marauders I wished to destroy or drive out, and to capture their horses; but having received information that a rebel captain b

C.: Colonel: I have the honor of transmitting the following report of the expedition in which one section of my battery took part. On the evening of the tenth instant, I received an order to join the expedition which was to move from Newbern on the following morning at four A. M. The battery horses were then at Morehead City, but were brought down by railroad during the night, and all was in readiness in tct. P.

Mr. Editor: My last was at the close of the day, on the tenth instant, just having received orders to march at daybreak next morning. Accordingly, four A.

st Quartermaster and Lieutenant Cummings. Very respectfully, your ob't serv't, E . H. Hobson, colonel Commanding Post. See Doc. 51 page 207, ante. Louisville Journal account. Elizabethtown, Ky., Dec. 31, 1862. gentlemen: You will doubtless have, in a few days, an official report of the battles and defeats of our little force at this place by Morgan's cavalry on Saturday, the twenty-seventh instant. The Ninety-first Illinois regiment, under Col. Day, arrived here on the tenth instant, and was divided into companies and placed at different points on the railroad, leaving only one company here under Captain Fosha. Colonel Day left here on furlough some two weeks since, and the command devolved on Lieutenant-Colonel Smith, a gallant man and perfect gentleman. He established his Headquarters near the depot, and remained there with Major Day until early last week, when he was removed by General Gilbert to the lower trestle. Col. Day, Lieut.-Col. Smith, Major Day, a
enant Commanding R. G. Blake. A National account. United States ship St. Lawrence, Key West, February 17, 1863. Sir: Having seen in several papers an account of the loss, and also the armament of the United States steamship Hatteras, I wish to state these facts. On the eighth of January we received orders in New-Orleans to take a draft of men, who had belonged to the Westfield, to the Brooklyn, the flag-ship at Galveston, and commence operations at that place. We arrived on the tenth, and on that afternoon commenced bombarding the fortifications until sundown, when we ceased firing. The next day being Sunday, there was no fighting. At three o'clock signals from the Brooklyn, announcing a strange sail in the offing, and for us to get under weigh in chase, were made to us. Twenty minutes after three we made the strange sail out to be a bark under easy sail; at half-past 6 we came within two miles of her, when she hoisted English colors; it now began to grow dark. At s
panied by Lieut.-Col. Schwartz, of my staff, by eight o'clock A. M., on the tenth instant, I had reconnoitred the river-road, and a portion of the levee, extending a or reenforcement of the enemy by water. This was accomplished early on the tenth inst., and formed an important part of my original plan; for the prompt and skilfuders from General Steele, the Second brigade debarked on the morning of the tenth instant, at Notrib's plantation, about one mile below Arkansas Post, and marched inave the honor to report that in the attack on this place, on the evening of the tenth, this vessel was struck several times, but with no serious injury to vessel or ave the honor to report having sustained no serious damage in the attack on the tenth. One shell struck us at the water-line forward, and a second went through the u during the attack upon this Post, by the forces under your command, on the tenth instant, fourteen Parrott shells and two eight-inch shells, and during the final an

Admiral: I have the honor to report to you that I left the landing below Vicksburgh, in obedience to your written instructions, on the night of the tenth instant, taking with me the De Soto and coal-barge, and proceeded down the River. We passed Warrenton without interruption, and reached Red River the following evening. I destroyed, as you directed, the skiffs and flatboats along either shore. I ascended Red River, on the morning of the twelfth, as far as the mouth of the Atchafalaya. Leaving the De Soto and coal-barge in a secure position, I proceeded down the stream six miles from its mouth. I met a train of army wagons returning from Simsport. I landed and destroyed them. On reaching Simmsport, I learned that two rebel steamboats had just left, taking with them the troops and artillery stationed at that point. They
