we are deprived of an official report of the part taken by his corps, as he was transferred to a distant command soon afterward, and unable to secure reports from subordinate commanders. The material left by him, however, with what we have been enabled to procure, will do, as we trust, entire justice to his memory. It has been already mentioned in the preceding chapter that in consequence of a flank movement on the right, and the threatened danger to its communications towards the last of June, the Army of Tennessee was put in retreat from Shelbyville and Tullahoma on or toward Chattanooga. The retreat was effected with slight or inconsiderable loss in men and transportation, and Chattanooga was occupied during the days of the first week of July. Polk's corps, except Anderson's brigade of Withers's division, which was ordered to Bridgeport, where the Nashville and Chattanooga railroad crosses the Tennessee river, for purposes of observation, was retained in and around Chattanooga

estimated by General Humphreys at 2,500 each, or 5,000 for the two. In regard to the cavalry, after the return of May 31st was made Stahl's brigade of 6,100 men joined Hooker, but the Federal cavalry suffered severely in the fights and marches of June, and Dr. Bates as well as other Federal authorities, estimate that it did not exceed 12,000 on July 1. (Its strength on July 10 was 11,842.) Hence, adding the 5,000 infantry, we have 94,283 as the present for duty in the Federal infantry and arti,000 men. The Count and some other writers, have imagined, without a single fact on which to base the supposition, that the Confederate army was increased by the return of sick and deserters, and by the arrival of conscripts during the month of June, though it was engaged in an active campaign, and was moving from its own base into hostile territory. General Early clearly shows in the article above referred to, that this was not so, and that on the contrary his own division lost from sicknes

Captain Irving and the steamer Convoy --supplies for prisoners. By Judge Robert Ould. [We are very much indebted to Judge Ould for the following interesting and conclusive paper, in which he not only explodes the statement about the Steamer Convoy, quoted in Notes and Queries of our June number, but gives a most valuable vindication of the Confederate Government on the whole question of supplies for prisoners.] In the Notes and Queries of the June number of the Southern Historical papers, after quoting from the Michigan Post and Tribune a statement that, in November, 1863, the United States Government sent Captain Irving up the James with the steamer Convoy, laden with clothing and provisions for the Union soldiers at Libby and Bell Isle, and that the steamer Convoy returned still laden as she went, the Rebel scoundrels refusing to allow the goods to be delivered to the sufferers there. I am asked to tell what I know about the effort of the steamer Convoy. In reply, I say t

ces of an enemy's presence. With some reluctance the two observers withdrew, to report to General Reynolds the result of their reconnoissance. Again on the 6th of June, the brigade proceeded to Chattanooga, Tennessee, and thence to Morristown and Loudon, in the same State. After a few days a march was made to Blain's Cross Roads, where the brigade remained till the 1st of August, 1862. The camp here was called Camp Hatton, in honor of General R. Hatton, who was killed near Richmond in June of the same year. During this encampment the battery received fifty recruits from Georgia. The next movement was to Tazewell, in East Tennessee, where the enemy was met, defeated, and driven back to Cumberland Gap. On the night of the 16th inst., General Reynolds advanced within four miles of the Gap, driving in the outposts of the enemy and seizing a range of hills on their front. This position was maintained till the 23d, when General Reynolds received orders from General E. Kirby Smi

notice of General Armistead's gallantry, and death, but puts no such words into his mouth, nor do any of the other numerous writers on Gettysburg, so far as we have seen. But in addition to this negative testimony, we submit the following correspondence, which explains itself, and settles the question beyond peradventure: Letter to General Hancock.office Southern Historical Society, Richmond, Virginia, July 10, 1882. General W. S. Hancock: Dear Sir,--I send you by this mail the June number of Southern Historical Society Papers, and beg leave to call your attention to the first item of Notes and Queries, (page 284,) in reference to General L. A. Armistead. Of the first statement — that General Armistead fought on the Federal side at first Manassas--we have the most positive refutation. In reference to the alleged message to you, I beg to ask if you ever received such a message, and if so, had you any reason to doubt General Armistead's being himself at the time? To b
