A correspondent writing from near Yorktown, Va., April twenty-ninth, says: The best work of the morning was reducing to a state of permanent inutility in this mundane sphere a negro rifleman, who, through his skill as a marksman, has done more injury to our men than a dozen of his white compeers, in the attempted labor of reducing the complement of our sharp-shooters. Our men have known him a long time, have kept an eye on him, have lain in wait for him. His habit has been to perch himself in a big tree, and, keeping himself hid behind the body, annoy our men by firing upon them. He climbed the tree this morning in advance of the others coming out, smuggled himself in his position, and was anticipating his usual day of quietude. Our men might have killed him as he came out, but avoided shooting, so as not to alarm the others. His tree was about twenty rods from one of our pits. When our men fired on the advancing rebel pickets, he, of course, saw the fix he was in — that he
William Rowland, a private in Capt. Fowler's Fifty-fourth Tennessee volunteers, who deserted, and was captured on the Shiloh battle-field of the sixth, in the enemy's ranks, and clothed in Union uniform, was subsequently shot in presence of all the Tennessee regiments.--Norfolk Day-Book, April 29.
Two brothers from Louisville fought at Pittsburgh on opposite sides, and in regiments directly opposed to each other. It so happened that the rebel brother was found mortally wounded, and was brought into the very hospital where his loyal brother had been detailed to nurse, and died in his brother's arms.--Buffalo Courier, April 29.
ield. The following surgeons were in charge, and nobly did their duty: Post hospital No. 1, Emory's division.--Dr. W. B. Eager, Jr., in charge; Drs. W. H. Hozier and E. C. Clark, assistants. Post hospital No. 2, Emory's division.--Dr. Robert Watts, Jr., in charge; Drs. Ward and Smith, assistants. Post hospital No. 1, Weitzel's brigade.--Dr. M. D. Benedict, Medical Director of the brigade, Chief Surgeon, Dr. George Benedict, Assistant. New-Orleans Era account. New-Orleans, April 29. We have not until to-day been able to obtain a full account from an eye-witness of the important part taken by General Grover's division in the severe struggle of the thirteenth and fourteenth instant. The fight took place near Irish or Indian Bend, between the Teche and Grand Lake, on the morning of the thirteenth, and culminated in the retreat of the enemy, and the destruction of the Diana on the fourteenth. From several participants in the fight we are now enabled to relate the
piers into the river. The whole cost of its erection was four hundred and ninety-six thousand dollars, two thirds of which was expended in getting the piers above the high-water mark, owing to the great depth of water and mud above the solid rock. The destruction of this bridge is one of the most serious losses this railroad has sustained during the war. Months must elapse before even a temporary bridge can be erected. The battle we have endeavored to describe, was fought on Wednesday, April twenty-ninth, and was in many respects the most remarkable in the annals of warfare. The great disparity in the numbers engaged; the obstinate, determined resistance made by the Unionists; the length of time they held out; and, stranger still, only one killed and four wounded on our side, while the rebel loss, according to their own admission, was fifty or sixty. Indeed, General Jones told Captain Chamberlain that we had killed and disabled about a hundred of his men. He, as well as the
. Captain: I have the honor to submit the following report of the movements of my command since the twenty-eighth day of April, 1863, until our return to this camp: Having complied with all preparatory orders, this regiment moved with the brigade on the afternoon of Tuesday, the twenty-eighth day of April, with twenty-seven officers and three hundred and twenty men, and reached a point below Fredericksburgh, on the Rappahannock, where we bivouacked for the night. The next day, twenty-ninth of April, we moved to the woods skirting the river, where we camped for two nights, Colonel McKnight holding an informal regimental muster on the thirtieth day of April. May first we took up the line of march about two o'clock P. M. for the right, and halted within a short distance of United States Ford at twelve, midnight. Soon after daylight, May second, we moved forward and crossed the Rappahannock at United States Ford about noon, when we received orders for picket-duty, and moved to a f
Doc. 188.-General Stoneman's raid through Virginia, April 29 to May 7. Yorktown, May 7, 1863. To Major-General Halleck: Colonel Kilpatrick, with his regiment, the Harris Light cavalry, and the rest of the Illinois Twelfth regiment, have just arrived at Gloucester Point, opposite the fort. They burned the bridges over the Chickahominy, destroyed three large trains of provisions in the rear of Lee's army, drove in the rebel pickets to within two miles of Richmond, and have lost only ontoneman's cavalry corps, Friday, May 8, 1863. I will commence the narrative at the time when it may be said the command first entered the enemy's lines by crossing Kelly's Ford. This was effected, without damage, on the morning of Wednesday, April twenty-ninth, the Eleventh, Twelfth, and Fifth army corps crossing on the same day. One division, however, of General Stoneman's command, that commanded by Gen. Averill, forded the river near the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, and soon after cros
ntrate all his forces at that point for the destruction of the army and the fleet; and that it was necessary to concentrate our troops west of the Mississippi, and the same point by which the army and navy could be relieved, and the forces of the enemy destroyed. Major-General McClernand, with the largest part of the forces recently at Matagorda Bay, which had been evacuated by order of Lieutenant-General Grant, dated March thirty-first, arrived at Alexandria oh the evening of the twenty-ninth of April. Brigadier-General Fitz Henry Warren, left in command at Matagorda Bay, followed with the rest of the forces in Texas, except those on the Rio Grande, when the batteries of the enemy on the river near Marksville obstructed his passage. Not having sufficient force to dislodge the enemy, he seized Fort De Russy, below the batteries, which he held until the passage of the fleet and army. While engaged in the construction of the dam, a despatch was received from Major-General Halleck
mmissioned officers, musicians, and privates of the army, a sum equivalent to the reduction of the ration, which sum was determined and declared to be two dollars per month. The bill was read twice, and referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. On the twenty-second of April, on motion of Mr. Wilson, the army appropriation bill was amended by adding as an amendment the bill which passed the Senate on the tenth of March, to equalize the pay of soldiers. In the House, on the twenty-ninth of April, Mr. Schenck, from the Committee on Military Affairs, to which the bill to equalize the pay of soldiers had been referred, reported it back with amendments. The bill and amendments were ordered to be printed, and recommitted with leave to report at any time. On the third of May, Mr. Schenck reported it back with an amendment in the nature of a substitute. The substitute provided: That after the first day of May, 1864, the pay of soldiers should be sixteen dollars per month. That
