e end. [Applause in the galleries.] Mr. Pearce, of Maryland, spoke on the thirtieth, against the resolution and in condemnation of the action of the Government i amendment. The report of the committee was concurred in. The Senate, on the thirtieth, disagreed to the amendment of the House to the Senate amendments. The Houseextraordinary times have originated. But the amendment was agreed to. On the thirtieth, the Senate resumed the further consideration of the bill, and Mr. Hendricks icut, and Mr. Ward, of New-York, managers on the part of the House. On the thirtieth, Mr. Schenck, from the committee of conference, reported that the House reced States; and it was agreed to. The bill as amended was then passed. On the thirtieth, Mr. Stevens moved that the amendment to assess on incomes a tax to pay the bch was read twice, and referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. On the thirtieth, Mr. Wilson reported it back with an amendment as a substitute. This substit

A., Washington City: Sir: I telegraphed my intention to cross the Potomac on the first instant. I now have the honor to report my movements since that date. I left Hagerstown on the afternoon of the thirtieth ultimo, the earliest day my command could take the field in a proper condition for active service, intending the following morning to enter Virginia with two columns, (at Dam No. Four and at Williamsport,) to be united the same day at Hainesville, the location of the rebels. Owing to the danger and difficulty attending the fording at Dam No. Four, I placed all the force at Williamsport. My order of march for the second instant, is given in the accompanying circular. The advance crossed the Potomac at four A. M., all taking the main road to Martinsburg with the exception of Negley's briga
bridges over the Hatchie River and its branches, which in the plan of evacuation had been directed to be destroyed, at a certain hour, on the morning of the thirtieth ultimo, not an incident would have marred, in the least, the success of the evacuation, in the face of a force so largely superior. It was, however, through a too taries, which were not drawn back until the evening of the second instant. Whilst at Rienzi, half way to Baldwin, I was informed that on the morning of the thirtieth ult. a detachment of the enemy's cavalry had penetrated to Booneville, eight miles south of Rienzi, and had captured and burned a railroad train of ammunition, baGeneral: Considering that we have yet still so much to be removed from this place, I have decided that the retrograde movement shall not take place until the thirtieth instant, at the hours appointed, instead of the twenty-ninth. You will please issue all necesaary orders to that effect to the forces under your command. It wo
ry, under General Pendleton, were intrusted with the defence of our position at Fredericksburg, and at midnight, on the thirtieth, General McLaws marched with the rest of his command towards Chancellorsville. General Jackson followed at dawn next mom advancing to that road. The residue of the troops having, in the mean time, been brought up on the afternoon of the thirtieth, I received instructions from Lieutenant-General Jackson to remain behind with my division and one of McLaws's brigadese from Chancellorsville, on the Ely road. We remained in this position until about seven o'clock the next morning, the thirtieth, when we were directed by the Major-General commanding, who reached Chancellorsville about twelve o'clock A. M., to movof them. The brigades occupied their position at Chancellorsville, as indicated, until next morning, Thursday, the thirtieth instant, when, under the direction of the Major-General commanding the division, who had happily joined us during the night
the junction of the Quaker Road and Boydton Plank-road, inflicting upon them a severe loss, and losing himself three hundred and sixty-seven killed and wounded. It commenced raining in the night, and continued to rain heavily all day on the thirtieth. During this day, General Griffin's line was advanced, with heavy skirmishing up the Boydton Plank-road, so as to confine the enemy, near Burgess' Mill, to his breastworks along the White Oak Road. A reconnoissance by General Ayres' division he night of the thirty-first of March, my headquarters were at Dinwiddie Court House, and the Lieutenant-General notified me that the Fifth corps would report to me, and should reach me about midnight. This corps had been offered me on the thirtieth instant; but very much desiring the Sixth corps, which had been with me in the Shenandoah Valley, I asked for it, but on account of the delay which would occur in moving that corps from its position in the lines in front of Petersburg, it could not
twenty-ninth I received orders to cross the Tennessee River with that portion of my command then with me (one brigade having been left with the army) and three brigades which General Forrest had been ordered to send me. On the morning of the thirtieth, I learned that these commands had just arrived at a point about twenty miles from the point of crossing. I ordered them to the latter place, and proceeded there with the commands of Generals Wharton and Martin. The enemy had occupied the oppd for his skill and gallantry in the battle of Chickamauga. To Lieutenant-Colonel Harvey, then commanding the Second and Fifteenth regiments, an equal meed of praise is due, but, unfortunately for the service, this gallant officer died on the 30th instant of disease contracted by over-exertions on the field, lamented by all who knew him. To Captain Fletcher, Company A, Thirteenth Arkansas regiment, I am indebted for saving one piece of Swett's battery, which had several horses disabled, and,

On the morning of the thirtieth, the order of battle was nearly parallel witat about six and a half o'clock P. M. on the thirtieth, which were as follows: Take strong peach division commander, on the night of the thirtieth, explaining to each what would be required orear of the centre. During the night of the thirtieth, I sent orders to Walker to take up a strongket, through which Negley had marched on the thirtieth. In front of Negley's position, borderingce on McCook's right during the night of the thirtieth, attacked and drove it back, pushing his divGeneral McCook, late in the afternoon of the thirtieth, he informed me that he had reliable informard instant: Early on the morning of the thirtieth ult., in obedience to the order of Major-Generaade, none severely. On the morning of the thirtieth, my division was formed as follows: Third br[7 more...]
e twenty-ninth, and that they were still landing at Bruinsburg. Brigadier-General Tracy, of Stevenson's division, had reached Grand Gulf with his brigade on the thirtieth. Lieutenant-Colonel Brown, of the Twentieth Mississippi, with fifty mounted men of his regiment, left Jackson for the same place on the twenty-ninth, and Major J. D. Bradford, a good artillery officer, was sent to replace the lamented Colonel Wade as Chief of Artillery. Between twelve and two o'clock P. M., on the thirtieth, Brigadier-General Baldwin, with his brigade of Smith's division, had crossed the Big Black at Hankinson's Ferry. At nine o'clock A. M., May first, General Bowen infod men, many officers. You may depend on my holding the place as long as possible. On the twenty-seventh we sunk one of their best iron-clad gunboats. On the thirtieth, I again dispatched as follows: Scouts report the enemy to have withdrawn most of his forces from our right yesterday, leaving Hall's Ferry road open I apprehend
attery, Lieutenant Moore commanding; Lucas' battery, and Sengstack's battery; Hoxton's and Brown's battery; Sengstack's batteries were held as reserves, under command of Lieutenant Burnett, acting Chief of Artillery of the division. With Hebert's division were Wade's, Landis', Guibo's, Dawson's, and King's. The cavalry force, under General Armstrong, reported to the Major-General commanding the combined forces, and afterwards acted under orders direct from him. On the morning of the thirtieth ultimo we took up the line of march in the direction of Pocahontas, which place we reached on the first instant, and from which we moved upon the enemy at Corinth, bivouacking on the night of the second instant at a point nearly opposite to Chewalla — having left one regiment of infantry and a section of artillery with the wagon train as a guard. At four o'clock on the morning of the third instant, we resumed the march; my command moving on the main Pocahontas and Corinth road, in rear of Gen
urrender, upon condition of being treated as prisoners of war, and the armed negroes unconditionally, Colonel Parsons accepted the terms. The position, upon a high mound, the side of which had been scarped and otherwise strengthened, was of great strength, and would have cost many lives and much precious time to have captured by assault. Under these circumstances, Brigadier-General Tappan, who came up before the capitulation was consummated, approved the convention. This was on the thirtieth ultimo, and I had made all my arrangements to push, the next day, towards Providence and Ashton, some miles above, where I intended to establish my batteries for the annoyance of the enemy's transports. That night I received General Taylor's instructions to march my division to Berwick's Bay. I immediately returned to this point and had embarked one of my brigades on the railroad train, when I received instructions from Lieutenant-General Smith to remain in this vicinity. On the fifth i
