Attention is called to that part of the report giving, from the reports of the subordinate commanders, the number of prisoners and small arms captured, which is greater than the number really captured by the whole army.

December twenty-fifth, the brigade all came back to Blain's Cross-Roads. December twenty-sixth, remained in camp. December twenty-seventh, late in the evening, our brigade moved up the Indian Ridge road to Buffalo Creek, about a mile from Orr's Ferry, on Holston River. December twenty-eighth, sent out a scout, but soon returned; perfectly quiet. December twenty-ninth, moved about a mile, and went into camp, with brigade headquarters, at Esquire West's. Remained here till January ninth, 1864. January fifth, 1864, Lieutenant-Colonel Ward made an effort to veteranize our regiment. The boys made a very good turn-out; but finally, because we could not be mustered as cavalry, the regiment failed to veteranize. January ninth, at eight o'clock A.

Our force consisted of a portion of Fitz Lee's cavalry division, under General Chambliss, and Rosser's brigade, under General Rosser--all under the command of Fitz Lee. Fitz Lee's division had already been reduced by his pertinacious but ineffectual efforts to capture Averill, to but a moiety of his proper number; while Rosser's brigade had just achieved a successful tour around Meade's army, and, as a matter of course, was greatly diminished. We started with about one thousand one hundred men in all. It was raining when we started, and soon commenced snowing. Many consoled themselves for such an inauspicious beginning with the old adage that a bad beginning makes a good end. We hoped against hope, and kept up light hearts, though at every step the weather and the roads got worse. As we ente

C., January 9, 1864. It is my purpose to narrate in this letter the facts concerning the chase and destruction of the blockade-runner steamer Dare by the United States steamers Montgomery and Aries, resulting in the capture of the executive officer, one engineer, and seventeen men from the Montgomery, and one ensign, the captain's clerk, and seven men from the Aries, by rebel cavalry on the coast.
