artillery and ordnance trains, he took up the line of march for Culpeper Court-house, and on the evening of the fourth encamped near that place. On the fourteenth, at the request of the commanding General, he sent Lane's battery to cooperate with General Stuart in an attack upon a body of the enemy near Warrenton Springs. And on the seventeenth, the same battery of superior guns was despatched, as requested, towards Fredericksburg, to cooperate under direction of General McLaws. On the nineteenth, orders to that effect having been received, the undersigned marched, with the reserve artillery and ordnance train, towards Fredericksburg, taking a circuitous route, (south-easterly,) for the sake of forage. On Sunday, the twenty-third, he arrived with the trains, reported at general headquarters, and located camps as directed. The next morning, as requested by the commanding General, he proceeded to the front for the purpose of observing the dispositions of the enemy and examining the
llowed the opportunity to examine those witnesses, nor to produce those I named to the committee, who ware with me during the day, aid who alone were sufficiently acquainted with all the facts to form a respectable opinion on the subject. But whatever opinions may have been expressed before the committee by witnesses, whose names they have not given, the same committee submitted a report to the Senate on the twenty-third day of December last, containing the evidence taken by them on the nineteenth of that month, in which the testimony of General Burnside, taken immediately after the battle, is given. This has been printed by order of the Senate. From this document I make the following extract, (referring to the battle of Fredericksburg:) Q. By Committee.--What causes do you assign for the failure of your attack here? A. It was found impossible to get the men up to the works; the enemy's fire was too hot for them; the whole command fought most gallantly; the enemy themselves
o whom he was almost a stranger. A citizen of Harper's Ferry thus wrote to him, on the twenty-fifth of April: The feeling against you rose very high, and I was glad to learn that you had left the place. If you had not, I have no doubt but your person would have sustained injury. After escaping from the hands of his captors, Captain Kingsbury was enabled, by a night tramp of twenty-two miles over the cross-ties of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, to reach Washington on the evening of the nineteenth, where he found, on his arrival, that the pressure of official duty was such that he had no time to make a written report of his conduct. That, however, was not then necessary, as the facts were not only well known in military circles, but also among the rebel sympathizers of the capital. Yet, notwithstanding all this, the name of the officer who originated the movement, and carried it to a successful conclusion, was suppressed at the time by the northern papers, and carefully excluded f
re do you proceed with your prize? I replied, To Boston. He then asked, Did you catch the pirates? I replied, I had but three. He then told me to repair on board. I went on board, when he ordered me to proceed to Halifax with the prize for adjudication; at which port we arrived and dropped anchor at quarter before four P. M. I immediately telegraphed to Commandant Montgomery of my arrival, and of my capture. The matter now remains in Captain Cleary's hands, who, on the morning of the nineteenth, ordered me to transfer the prisoners to the custody of the British officers, and to turn the prize over to the British authorities. Accordingly at one P. M. I sent Ensign Coghlan with the three prisoners to the British authorities appointed to receive them. At. two P. M. I transferred the prize to the British authorities, Captain O'Brien, of the revenue service, taking charge of her. At four P. M. the Dacotah made signals for us to sail. I immediately visited the General commanding

On the morning of the nineteenth, I was ordered to move with my command down Chickamauga, occurred on the evening of the nineteenth, and in the morning and evening of the twentieth September.

In connection, however, with this relation of events, between the ninth and nineteenth ultimo, I beg to call attention to my letters to the Secretary of War, of the tenth May and twentieth July, and one to Genrom Sumter to Sullivan's Island. Batteries Cheves and Simkins had kept up their fire during the day and night of the nineteenth, receiving an occasional shot from the enemy. On the twentieth the enemy re-opened his fire heavily, principally aga

All the available cavalry nort having in tow fifteen flat-boats or pontoons, with twenty-five skiffs on them. Another transport passed Austin on the nineteenth, towing sixteen flats or pontoons. Brigadier-General Ruggles was directed to send all his available cavalry, both Coe of which was very destructive, and though repeated attempts were made we could not succeed in silencing them. On the nineteenth, the following telegram was sent to General Johnston: The enemy opened all his batteries on our lines about half-past 3 were, I regret to say, frequent. Two divisions of the enemy, with cavalry, drove our cavalry through Brandon on the nineteenth, returning to Jackson the next day. Their object seemed to be to destroy the railroad bridges and depots.
