Sheridan pursued them during the night, only halting at Woodstock, to rest his men and issue rations. On the 23rd, he drove the enemy to Mount Jackson, and found the country and small towns filled with their wounded; on the 24th, he followed Early to a point six miles beyond Newmarket, but without being able to bring on an engagement. The rebels moved fast, l be safe to send all new organizations here. Sheridan himself Grant left at first entirely to his own resources, to reap the harvest of his own victory. After each battle he congratulated him and his army, but gave no detailed orders. On the 23rd, he said: I have just received the news of your second great victory, and ordered a hundred guns in honor of it. Keep on, and your good work will cause the fall of Richmond. On the 24th, however, Sheridan reported: I am now eighty miles from Mart

On the night of the 23rd, Schofield evacuated Pulaski, and on the 24th, he reported himself in position at Columbia. This town is on the south bank of the Duck river, which here runs from west to east, and is at the crossing of the direct road to Nashville, distant only pportunity, which I know you are availing yourself of.

He seems to be pushing Hood with energy, and I doubt not he will completely destroy that army. The appointment w

On the 23rd, Hardee reported from Savannah: I could gain no definite or reliableide on the open sea, the other was obliged to stay inside. On the 23rd, however, the storm had abated, and the admiral, finding the sea smoceeded with his preparations. At half-past 10 on the night of the 23rd, the powder vessel started in towards the bar. She was towed by the thirty steamers are now assembling, and more are following. On the 23rd, he reported further: The fleet, which drew off in the rough weatherks and fire a musket, to rally to the defence of Wilmington. On the 23rd, one hundred and ten artillery-men, fifty sailors, and two hundred a 667 men in the garrison, and 800 reserves at Sugar Loaf; and on the 23rd, 410 reinforcements were thrown into the fort, of whom 250 were rese

And now, at last, all the great armies were in the positions designated by the general-in-chief. On the 20th of March, Stoneman started in East Tennessee, and the same day Canby moved against Mobile; on the 23rd, the junction between Sherman and Schofield was effected at Goldsboro; on the 24th, Sheridan set out from White House to rejoin the army of the Potomac after a separation of nearly eight months; and on that day Grant issued his orders to Meade and Ord and the great cavalry leader for a movement against the right of Lee.
