Sir: In the Army and Navy Journal, of the sixteenth instant, there is published a review of the service of the monitors, by Rear-Admiral J. A. Dahlgren. As this review does not give this vessel credit for the service performed by her, I respectfully ask your attention to the subject, in order that the statement may be corrected at the Navy Department. On the twenty-ninth of July, 1863, this vessel went into action with Fort Wagner, followed by the Patapsco; the New Ironsides joined in the action also. The presence of the Passaic in this ac

V.: Sir: I have the honor to submit the following report of an encounter on the seventeenth instant, between my brigade and a division of the enemy's cavalry, certainly not less than three thousand mounted men, with a battery of artillery: My first intimation of their approach was in a telegram received at eleven A. M., on the sixteenth, from headquarters Army of Northern Virginia. At six P. M. scouts reported them at Morrisville, a little place six miles from Kelley's Ford. At one A. M., another report informed me that the enemy had encamped at that place, coming from three different directions. I that night reenforced my picket of twenty sharpshooters by forty more. I regret to say that only about eleven or twelve of them got into the rifle-pits in time for the attack of the enemy, (owing to an unnecessary delay in
to Margaret's Bay, and the ship being so light that we could do but little in the gale which was blowing, and our coal being nearly exhausted, we ran into Halifax. Arrived at the coal wharf at half past 5 P. M., and left at eleven P. M. (having taken in one hundred and thirty-six tons coal) for LaHave, N. S., where the Chesapeake was then reported to be. All this night a heavy gale was blowing from the westward, rendering it difficult to get to the windward. Arrived at La Have on the sixteenth instant, at three P. M., and found the pirate had left that place the night before, and the mouth of the river that morning. We then got news that she was at Lunenberg, (twenty-five miles distant,) and we immediately started for that port, where we arrived at half past 6 P. M. Telegraphed at once to Halifax for news of her whereabouts, which we received, stating that the Chesapeake entered Mud Cove, Sambro Harbor, that evening. We immediately got under way, and ran down to the mouth of the h
nge, say, of from nine to twelve hundred yards. It appeared on an examination of the wreck of the Keokuk, on the sixteenth instant, by Lieutenant Boyleston, confirmed in the main by my own observations on the nineteenth instant, that her turrets Brigadier-General Hagood made a reconnoissance of the enemy, in his front, on James Island. On the morning of the sixteenth, in accordance with instructions, Brigadier-General Hagood advanced against the enemy, from his headquarters near Secesexcellent conduct of Brigadier-Generals Hagood and Colquitt, as evidenced in the attack on the enemy's position, on the sixteenth. Besides these, Colonel Graham, Twenty-first South Carolina volunteers; Colonels Olmstead and Harrison, of the Georgia a vigorous fire, both vertical and direct, on Battery Wagner and Battery Gregg, until about half-past 4 o'clock on the sixteenth, when it ceased. It was replied to by Sumter, Gregg, and Simkins at intervals. From Battery Wagner the fire was conti

I found it a very difficult matter to obtain t occurred during the night. On the morning of the sixteenth, at about half past 6 o'clock, Colonel Wirt Adams personal interview in his tent on the night of the sixteenth, and who received my instructions from my own lips for the reasons given. About seven A. M., on the sixteenth, I received the latter, which reiterated the previrior forces of the enemy. About six P. M., on the sixteenth, whilst on the retreat, the following communicatiol report that it was received at six P.

are to move forward, his right leading, supported by two brigades from Polk's and Hardee's corps. When he was about to move, information came from Major-General Walker that the Federal right was crossing the river. To meet this movement Lieutenant-General Hood's attack was countermanded. Stewart's division not receiving the order from corps headquarters in time, attacked unsuccessfully. The army was ordered to cross the Oostanaula that night, destroying the bridges behind it. On the sixteenth the enemy crossed the Oostanaula. Lieutenant-General Hardee skirmished with them successfully near Calhoun. The fact that a part of Polk's troops were still in the rear, and the great numerical superiority of the Federal army, made it expedient to risk battle only when the position or some blunder on the part of the enemy might give us counterbalancing advantages. I therefore determined to fall back slowly, until circumstances should put the chances of battle in our favor — keeping so

He had not arrived at Princeton on the night of the sixteenth, as I had directed and desired.
