ls. Commander Steedman, with a large force, had been ordered by Admiral Du Pont to look to this. Having approached the fort and felt its troops, he urged that troops might be sent to aid in securing the garrison when the battery should be silenced by the gunboats, and to alter the insolent tone of the rebel military authority in that quarter. Gen. Mitchel, with his characteristic promptitude, detailed a suitable force for the purpose, under Gen. Brannan, which sailed hence on the thirtieth ultimo. I have now the honor to inform the Department that I have just received the report of Commander Steedman, in which he informs me that the cooperation force under General Brannan having arrived and landed with great promptitude, the gunboats advanced, and after a spirited, and, as it seems, well-directed fire, silenced the battery, which was then occupied by our force. The rebels seem to have retired in much haste, leaving guns, (nine in number, some of which were eight-inch, and

Wood, ouning. At an early hour on the morning of the thirtieth, I received instructions that we would move miles of Murfreesboro. On the night of the thirtieth, the brigade was ordered to the front line tf soldierly greatness. At one P. M., on the thirtieth, I moved by your order, my brigade to the frn. Here we remained till the morning of the thirtieth, when we marched off toward Murfreesboro, di and a half miles from Murfreesboro. On the thirtieth the regiment was assigned its position in li from Murfreesboro. On the morning of the thirtieth, the enemy's artillery opened upon Cox's batin front all night with the brigade. On the thirtieth we were moved forward some four hundred yardnning of the action, deserted him. On the thirtieth, General McCook advanced on the Wilkinson pi
Doc. 42.-General Foster's expedition through eastern North-Carolina. General Foster's official report. headquarters Department of North-Carolina, Carolina, Newbern, Nov. 12, 1862. Major-Gen. Halleck, General-in-Chief, U. S.A.: General: I have the honor to report that, agreeable to my letter of the thirtieth ultimo, informing you of my intention to make an expedition through the eastern counties of this State, and stating the object of the move, I left this post on the thirty-first ultimo, and have just arrived here on my return. I am happy to inform you that although the original plan for the capture of the three regiments foraging in that section was, owing to the condition of the roads, frustrated, the expedition will be of great service to our cause in this department. The First brigade, under command of Colonel T. J. C. Amory, together with the artillery, cavalry and wagon-train, were marched from this point across the country to Washington; the balance of my fo
mplete. We never lost a drop of blood. After securing prisoners and horses, destroying camp, etc., we marched at four P. M. on the twenty-sixth for Summerville, where we arrived on the twenty-seventh, at noon, making one hundred and twenty miles for men and horses, with-out food or rest, except one feed of hay for the horses, over the most mountainous and rugged part of Western Virginia. We remained in Summerville until the twenty-ninth; left for Camp Piatt, and arrived in camp on the thirtieth, at noon. My men suffered severely from frost. I left two men in hospital at Summerville, whose boots were cut from their feet; other were more or less frozen. My horses were very much cut down. I cannot close this report without deservedly complimenting officers and men; but where all behaved so gallantly it is impossible to particularize. But all honor is due Major Powell, who led the charge, and company G, Capt. McMahon, who led the column. I have the honor to by your obedient
ngly wilful mistakes of your correspondent, W. L. F., should be contradicted. That he is mistaken in his account of the skirmish north of the Tallahatchie on November thirtieth, every man and officer of the left wing ought to know, and how he, as the medium between the army, the press, and the people, can allow himself to state so palpable a falsehood, (he that should be the most correct of the correctly informed,) is beyond our comprehension. The facts are these: On the morning of the thirtieth, Colonel Deitzler, Colonel First Kansas infantry, commanding the First brigade of McArthur's division, was ordered to take four regiments of infantry, the First Kansas, Eleventh Illinois, Thirty-ninth and Twenty-seventh Ohio, and, assisted by Col. Lee with the Seventh Kansas, Third Michigan, and Fourth Illinois cavalry, make a reconnoissance of the enemy's position. The men were ordered to take three days rations, General Hamilton supposing it would take at least two days to accomplish th
eadquarters, Cincinnati, January 8. Major-General Halleck, General-in-Chief: I have just received a despatch from Major-General George G. Granger that the cavalry force about one thousand strong which he sent to East-Tennessee on the twenty-first ultimo, by my order, under Brigadier-General H. Carter, to destroy the East-Tennessee Railroad, bridges, etc., has been heard from. General Granger has just received a despatch from Gen. Carter at Manchester, Kentucky, stating that on the thirtieth ultimo, he entirely destroyed the Union and Watauga bridges, with ten miles of railroad. Five hundred and fifty rebels were killed, wounded and taken prisoners; seven hundred stand of arms, a large amount of salt and other rebel stores, also, a locomotive and several cars, were captured and destroyed. A brisk skirmish took place at the Watauga bridge and another at Jonesville. We lost but ten men. This expedition, as characterized by General Granger, has been one of the most hazardous
de Island, Hampton roads, January 3, 1868. sir: I have the honor to report, in conformity with your orders of the twenty-fourth ultimo, that the Rhode Island proceeded to sea with the iron-clad steamer Monitor in tow, at half-past 2 P. M. of the twenty-ninth ultimo, the wind being light from the southward and westward, with a smooth sea. The weather continued favorable during the night, and the Monitor towed easily; speed ranging between five and six miles per hour. At one P. M. of the thirtieth, made Cape Hatteras lighthouse, bearing west-south-west, fourteen miles distant. The weather during the day continued the same. At sunset, when seventeen miles south-east of Cape Hatteras, made the steamer State of Georgia with the Passaic in tow, to the northward and eastward of us, the wind being light at the time from southward and westward, with indications of good weather. Between eight and nine P. M. the wind freshened, hauling more to the southward, and attended with rainy and sq
Doc. 94.-battle of Parker's cross-roads, Tenn. Colonel Dunham's official report. headquarters Third brigade, Parker's Cross-Roads, near Lexington, Tenn., December 31, 1862. Brig.-Gen. J. C. Sullivan, Commanding Division: sir: In pursuance of your written order of yesterday, the thirtieth instant, I on that day, at about two o'clock P. M., left Huntington, in pursuit of the enemy's force, under Gen. Forrest, toward Lexington, with the brigade under my command, except the Seventh Tennessee, which was by your order left to guard the bridge north of Huntington. My command consisted of parts of two companies — A and E of the Eighteenth Illinois volunteer infantry, mounted, under Capt. Davis, sixty-five men; the Fiftieth Indiana volunteers, Lieut. Col. Wells commanding, five hundred and twenty-five men; the One Hundred and Twenty-third Illinois, Col. Ranaker, five hundred and twenty-nine men; the Thirty-ninth Iowa, Colonel Cummings, four hundred and five men; and three piec
n, referred to in my previous despatch No. 53, there were also vague rumors that two gunboats, holding Stono Inlet, had been engaged, heavy firing having been heard in that direction. At two o'clock A. M. of the first instant, the Commodore McDonough came into Port Royal, and, I regret to say, reported the capture, by three rebel batteries, of the United States steamer Isaac Smith. It appears from Lieutenant Commanding Bacon's reports, herewith inclosed, that on the afternoon of the thirtieth ultimo he sent the Isaac Smith, Acting Lieutenant Conover, up Stono River to make a reconnoissance, as had been frequently done for weeks previous. She passed some miles beyond Legareville without seeing the enemy, and was on her way back; when about a mile above that place, and in a bend of the river, three batteries, heretofore concealed, opened a concentrated fire upon her, firing heavy rifled guns. Lieutenant Commanding Bacon, who, with the Commodore McDonough, was anchored lower down
Rebel reports and Narratives. Report of flag-officer Ingraham. office naval Station, Charleston, February 2, 1863. sir: I have honor to inform you, that upon the night of the thirtieth ultimo, I left the wharf at this place, in company with the steam rain Chicora, Commander John R. Tucker, at a quarter-past eleven o'clock, and steamed slowly down to the bar, as, from our draft, we could not cross until high-water. At half-past 4 we crossed the bar, with about a foot and a half to spare, and soon after made a steamer at an anchor — stood directly for her, and directed Lieutenant Commanding Rutledge to strike her with our prow. When quite near we were hailed: What steamer is that? Drop your anchor, or you will be into us. He was informed that it was the confederate steamer Palmetto State. At this moment we struck her and fired the seven-inch gun into her,--as he gave an order to fire. I then inquired if he surrendered, and was answered in the affirmative. I then direc
