ar advanced that I looked for but little time in which to move the army effectively. General Sumner's grand division started at daylight on the morning of the fifteenth, and the grand divisions of Generals Franklin and Hooker, together with the cavalry, started on the sixteenth. General Sumner's advance reached Falmouth on the sn, and in the course of conversation repeated the order to put the pontoon trains in depot as fast as they arrived. It should be remembered that this was on the fifteenth; one pontoon train, which would have been sufficient for our purposes, having arrived in Washington on the evening of the fourteenth. The second train arrived tresults even at this distance of time, and I have, therefore, been thus brief in my statement of them. From the night of the thirteenth until the night of the fifteenth, our men held their positions. Something was done in the way of intrenching, and some angry skirmishing and annoying artillery firing was indulged in in the mea

After causing the destruction of the railroad, and being satisfied of the fact that Adams would not fight him, General McArthur moved leisurely back, and arrived in this city on the fifteenth. This part of the Mississippi Central Railroad had been once destroyed before by our army, and was just rebuilt at great cost and labor, and was designed by the rebels to transport supplies from the rich region of the Yazoo, through to the interior, for the use of their army. This city has suffered but little from the ravages of war, though it has been temporarily occupied by Federal troops three different times, and there has been a severe street fight, marks of shots being plainly vi
within eight miles of Resacca. The particulars of the engagement on the centre your correspondent with the army of the Cumberland will furnish. During the night the advance position of the Fifteenth corps was thoroughly intrenched. On the fifteenth, the position at which the Fourteenth corps had the battle of the day previous was carried without great loss. On the right, Sweeney's division of the Sixteenth corps, with a portion of the Third cavalry division, after a sharp engagement, cro to a great extent had taken his army with him. Twenty-four hours later and he could not have moved off so well arid clearly. As to the rebel strength, judging from the length of the line that Johnston held, and the battle which he made on the fifteenth, at different points, it could not have been less than forty thousand.

orks near Raine's house would become untenable, and the ground east of N. and C. R. R. be given up to us, with little loss. Accordingly, on the morning of the fifteenth, when the fog, which lay like a winding-sheet over the two armies, began to disappear. I moved my command out upon the Murfreesboro pike and disposed it as follery, in the engagement near Nashville, Tennessee, on the fifteenth and sixteenth of December, 1864. The battery was engaged from eight o'clock A. M., of the fifteenth instant, throughout the day, both sections having taken position early in the day, within five hundred yards of the enemy's main line of works, the right section opeaving possession of the work, at about five o'clock P. M. I moved the battery in the general pursuit, with Colonel Morgan's brigade. The casualties on the fifteenth instant were as follows: Lieutenants E. D.

The troops from North Carolina commenced arriving about the eighteenth or nineteenth of April, having left Little Washington on the fifteenth, under orders. Not less than twelve thousand came under Hill, French, and others. General Foster's estimates were very high, and I have not adopted them in consequence.
