staff, where gunboats might be effectually repelled, the undersigned again visited the front, to study the ground with reference alike to its own features and to the apparent designs of the enemy. In the evening, he also visited the admirable position on the river bank selected for Ross's battery. Major Nelson and the captains of the reserve batteries were next requested to accompany the undersigned along the line, that they also might become familiar with routes and positions. On the twenty-eighth, the commanding General having requested that another rifle battery should be placed eight or ten miles lower down the river, towards repelling gunboats, the undersigned took Captain Milledge's battery of light rifles to a commanding bluff just below Skinker's mill. Here the battery was left, with one of General Stuart's, under charge of Major Pelham, with whom, moving from point to point as gunboats threatened, it remained more than ten days.

, and there embark the troops. I remained at anchor all night, with the hope that the Columbine would return, but heard nothing of her. At 11.10 A. M., on the twenty-fourth, anchored at Orange Mills, but found no troops; the General had embarked part of his men on board of the Houghton, and the remainder he had marched across to Picolata. It left me in an awkward position, as the vessel could not float across the flats. I received on board seven stragglers left behind at Pilatka and from Orange Mills, belonging to the One Hundred and Fourty-fourth and One Hundred and Fifty-seventh New York volunteers. On the twenty-eighth instant crossed the flats unassisted, and anchored off Bay Point, agreeably to your order. Accompanying this is a report of ammunition expended in the engagement with the battery. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. Livingston Breese, Lieutenant-Commander, U. S. N. Commander Geo.

with their companies of rangers, made a rapid dash, which repulsed the enemy with considerable loss. A precipitate flight followed, the Indians leaving their dead upon the field. Thus ended the second lesson. The third battle was on the twenty-eighth, the march on the twenty-seventh being only eighteen miles, on account of the utter exhaustion of the animals. The ball was opened by the Tenth regiment, whose turn it was to be in advance. The column was moving out of camp, when the scout nty-seventh, and the trail, still marked by robes and other articles, was followed towards the Missouri River. We camped, after a march of nearly twenty miles, on a small lake half a mile long and twenty rods wide. On the morning of the twenty-eighth, just as the rear of the train was filing around the south end of the lake, the advance being nearly to the top of a long hill that we were ascending, the Indians suddenly made their appearance in front and on the flanks, rapidly circling aro

The baggage train of these corps must leave their position at twelve M., precisely, on the twenty-eighth instant, and stop for the night on the south side of the Tuscumbia, on the best available ground. The provision trains will follow the baggage trains. 6. The ammunition and ambulance trains must be parked at the most convenient point to theiregard, General, commanding.

The baggage trains of his army must leave their position at daybreak on the twenty-eighth instant, by the road on the east of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, to stop temporarily at about six miles from his headquarters, but with secret orders to the officers in charge of them to continue rapidly on the direct road to the vicinity of Bal
ford formed his lines so as to place Colonel Kellogg's brigade on his left, General Baxter's brigade on his right, and General Coulter's brigade as his reserve. The length of the front we occupied was about a thousand yards. The casualties of the three preceding days, together with the loss of those who had given out from weariness, or were absent on detached duty, had probably reduced our effective force at least a thousand men in each division below that with which we set out on the twenty-eighth, so that we had then present about twelve thousand men. While the troops were forming, I prepared the accompanying sketch, with explanations, for each division commander, and directed them, as far as time would permit, to explain it to the brigade commanders: April 1, 3 P M. The following is the movement now about to be executed: Map showing five Forks. The line will move forward as formed till it reaches the White Oak Road, when it will swing round to the left, perpend

On the morning of the twenty-eighth, I ordered out a strong reconnoissance, under command of Brigadier-General Willich, to learnhe conduct of Majors Rosengarten and Ward, the former now deceased, was most heroic. On the twenty-eighth we made a reconnoissance to College Grove, and found that Hardee's rebel corps had marched t a slight resistance, the main portion of their forces having evacuated the place. On the twenty-eighth I encamped at Triune. On the twenty-ninth I supported General Davis's division, which had td bivouacked there until the morning of the twenty-ninth. During all the day, Sunday, the twenty-eighth, the enemy's pickets were in sight across the creek, firing upon us occasionally at long ran bank of the creek, and in this encampment the ground was strewn with arms. Sunday, the twenty-eighth ult., we remained in camp, waiting for the troops of the right wing and centre to get into posi
lonel R. V. Richardson, until he should fall in with Colonel Wirt Adams, who was then directed to assume command and direct the movements of the whole. On the twenty-eighth, it was ascertained that Grierson was continuing his movement south of Hazle-hurst, and not towards Grand Gulf, or the Big Black Bridge. Colonel Adams was direr right, and all troops not absolutely necessary to hold the works at Vicksburg should be held as a movable force for either Warrenton or Grand Gulf. On the twenty-eighth, Brigadier-General Bowen telegraphed that transports and barges loaded down with troops are landing at Hard Times, on the west bank. I immediately replied as ident, and added, being unwell then, I afterwards became sick, and am not now able to serve in the field. General Bragg is, therefore, necessary here. On the twenty-eighth my unfitness for service in the field was reported to the Secretary of War. On the ninth of May I received, at Tullahoma, the following dispatch, of the sam
the parapet. Signals were exchanged by the mutineers with Fort St. Philip. The mutiny was complete, and a general massacre of the officers, and a disgraceful surrender of the fort, appeared inevitable. By great exertion we succeeded, with your influence, in preventing this disgraceful blot upon our country, and were fortunate in keeping the passion of the men in check until we could effect an honorable surrender of the forts, which was done by us, jointly, on the morning of the twenty-eighth instant. As the facts and documents relating to this matter are in your possession, it is unnecessary for me to dwell longer on this humiliating and unhappy affair. I wish to place on record here the noble conduct of Captain Comay's company, the St. Mary's Cannoniers, who alone stood true as steel, when every other company in Fort Jackson basely dishonored their country. I have the honor to remain, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Ed. Higgins, Lieutenant-Colonel, C. S. A.
ion, and was driven back with great slaughter. In these two actions our troops were not intrenched. Our loss in each was about four hundred and fifty killed and wounded. On the twenty-seventh the enemy's dead, except those borne off, were counted--six hundred. We therefore estimated their whole loss at three thousand at least. It was probably greater on the twenty-fifth, as we had a larger force engaged then, both of infantry and artillery. The usual skirmishing was kept up on the twenty-eighth. Lieutenant-General Hood was instructed to put his corps in position during the night to attack the enemy's left flank at dawn next morning, the rest of the army to join in the action successively from right to left. On the twenty-ninth Lieutenant-General Hood, finding the Federal left covered by a division which had intrenched itself in the night, thought it inexpedient to attack — so reported and asked for instructions. As the resulting delay made the attack inexpedient, even if it
