of Belle Isle prison, where were shut up a large number of Federal soldiers about to be exchanged in a few days. The passers-by expressed much indignation at the carelessness of the railroad employ's in allowing the Federals to take note of the powerful reinforcements which were being sent to Jackson, thus revealing to the enemy such important movements of troops. This was precisely what General Lee desired. On the 15th, Whiting left Lynchburg for Charlottesville, reaching Staunton on the 18th, where he landed his materiel, and seemed to be preparing to proceed down the valley to fall upon Fremont conjointly with Jackson; but on the 20th he speedily got on board the same cars which had brought him over, and returned to Charlottesville, where Jackson was awaiting him with the army that had fought at Cross Keys and Port Republic. By the movements of his cavalry, by his own words, and by means of letters written with the intention that they should fall into the hands of the Federals,

immediately started again for Newport News in order to be able the more speedily to come to his assistance. We shall see how badly his zeal was rewarded. On the 18th, after a march of about one hundred kilometres, performed in three days and one night, he encamped on the beach of Hampton Roads. At the same moment the last Fedenoeuvre in his situation, nevertheless promptly belied the promises contained in his general orders. The movement of the Federals, commenced on the morning of the 18th, was completed on the evening of the 19th; on the left, Reno occupied Kelly's Ford; Banks, Rappahannock Station; Mc-Dowell, Rappahannock Ford; and Siegel formed the positions they had occupied since the battle. His prudent adversary, however, did not wait for him. He also had received a reinforcement during the day of the 18th, consisting of the last division, which had been left at Harper's Ferry; these fresh troops, however, did not compensate him sufficiently for his losses.

aring an attack upon Nashville, he sent back one of the divisions of his army to Thomas. On the following day every doubt was dispelled. An intercepted despatch had informed him, it is said, what might, for that matter, have been easily guessed—that Bragg was marching upon Louisville. The Federals had but little chance of winning the race of which that city was the prize. Thomas was summoned in great haste with the first division. Leaving two at Nashville, he started on the 15th. On the 18th the whole of Buell's army was concentrated at Bowling Green. Bragg, however, had turned these six days to good account, and the two adversaries found themselves nearly in the same situation as Lee and Pope three weeks previous, each almost turning his back upon his true base of operations. Buell had cause to fear a similar disaster to that which the Federals had experienced at Manassas. Leaving one division with Breckenridge on the frontier of Tennessee to check any aggressive movement

ight boats, carrying the flooring and forming two equipages, each sufficient for crossing the Rappahannock, were on the 16th placed in tow of a steamer, which after many accidents brought them into the bay of Belle Plaine, near Aquia Creek, on the 18th. No Federal soldier had as yet appeared on that side, and the pontoniers who accompanied the boats were obliged, on landing, to disperse a few Confederate troopers who were watching them. But these boats were useless without the wagons especiallossible at that season of the year. If the wagons and the materiel which were shipped on the Occoquan on the 24th had followed the forty-eight boats that came down the Potomac on the 16th, the whole equipage would have reached Belle Plaine on the 18th; and in default of horses from Washington, the army teams could have conveyed them immediately to the borders of the Rappahannock. We have said that, on the 14th, Burnside issued all the necessary orders for marching his army from Warrenton to

ng-vessels, and the gun-boat Sachem, with which he blockaded the entrance of Corpus Christi. The Confederates, being desirous to fit out a few vessels in their turn without being molested, had sunk some piles among the passes. On the 12th of August, Kittredge succeeded in removing these obstacles; he penetrated into the bay with the small steamer Corypheus, and captured one of the enemy's ships, while another was burnt by its own crew. Still another fell into his hands on the 17th. On the 18th he landed about one hundred men, who, being supported by the naval guns, made an attempt to occupy the village of Corpus Christi; but the enemy having appeared in force, these troops re-embarked after having repulsed a feeble attack made by three hundred Confederate horse. Kittredge made no further demonstration against Corpus Christi, and four weeks later he was taken prisoner with the crew of one of his launches while engaged in a reconnaissance in Laguna Madre.
