able and indefatigable Quartermaster of the brigade, who, on different occasions, accompanied me to the field, and under fire, in the midst of the worst perils of the fight, rendered me essential service in the most generous and gallant style. I have the honor to be, very truly, your obedient servant, Thomas Francis Meagher, Brigadier-General Commanding the Irish Brigade. Colonel Stevens's report. headquarters Thirteenth regiment N. H. Vols., opposite Fredericksburgh, Va., December 22, 1862. To His Excellency Nathaniel S. Berry, Governor of New-Hampshire: sir: I have the honor to report to you the operations of the regiment under my command since their departure from Camp Casey, near Fairfax Seminary, Virginia, including the battle of Fredericksburgh, on the thirteenth inst.

king the passage, at times, difficult and dangerous. Col. Mallett, the conscription officer, was captured and paroled. The troops arrived here on Friday and Saturday, having fully and literally fulfilled the objects of the expedition. The different regiments and batteries did nobly. To particularize would be invidious, especially where every body did well. We await the publication of the official report with eager interest. Boston Traveller account. Newbern, N. C., December 22, 1862. Since the advent of Gen. Burnside into North-Carolina, the capture of Roanoke, Newbern and Beaufort, but little has occurred in the way of aggressive warfare, up to within a couple of weeks back, save a few small expeditions having insignificant results, to claim an adequate share of public attention. One great reason of this was the fact that Gen. Burnside left but few troops here when he went to reenforce the army before Richmond, for it left Gen. Foster too small a force with w
Doc. 79.-surrender of Holly Springs, Miss. Missouri Democrat account. Oxford, Miss., December 22, 1862. from persons just arrived from Holly Springs, we begin at last to get some particulars of the rebel raid into that place on Saturday. About daybreak in the morning the enemy's advance-guard rode into the east side of that town, and from that time for two hours or more, they continued to pour in until every street and byway of the town was filled by Van Dorn's twenty-two regiments of cavalry. The railroad depot is on the eastern side of the town, and on the track near it were two trains of cars, one empty and one loaded with cotton, both of which in a few minutes more would have been off, as they were all ready to start, one for the North and the empty train for this place. The rebels began their day's work by setting fire to the two trains, which were soon in a blaze. It seems they came prepared for such business, as all their canteens were filled with turpenti
Doc. 84.-Governor Shorter's appeal to the people of Alabama. Executive Department, Montgomery, Ala., Dec. 22, 1862. In view of the anticipated effect of the conscript law upon the militia system of the State, on the twelfth day of May last, I invited the able-bodied men of Alabama, not subject to conscription, to form volunteer companies. That invitation did not receive the attention it merited. The Legislature has adopted no law for the improvement of the militia organization of the State. The impaired condition of that system leaves no means of making the remaining military strength of the State available for its protection and defence except by the formation of volunteer companies. The State is now threatened from several directions. Our unscrupulous foe has collected all his resources for one stupendous effort to subjugate and enslave us. He can never repeat the effort. He makes it the crisis of his cause. If foiled in this last desperate struggle, exhausted an
