Strawberry Plain. At about the same time General Robert Vance went over the Smoky Mountain from North Carolina, into East Tennessee, with about four hundred cavalry and two pieces of artillery. It was a most perilous march, over icy roads. Vance left the bulk of his force at the foot of the mountain, and led one hundred and seventy-five men on a reconnaissance toward Sevierville, south of Dandridge. On the way he heard of a National wagon-train moving not far off. On this he pounced Jan. 14, 1864. in a fierce charge, and captured seventeen wagons and twenty-six men. With his plunder he attempted to return by way of the head of Cosby Creek, where, on the following morning, he was surrounded by the Fourth Illinois Cavalry, under Major Davidson, who thoroughly dispersed the Confederates and captured General Vance, with a part of his staff and about a hundred men, and recaptured the prisoners and wagons. From that time until the close of January, Sturgis was continually menaced by L

essary. The Confederates were not slow to take advantage of the lull which had taken place after the storm of shot and shell that had been poured down upon their devoted heads, and their torpedo corps went to work to fit out another David (or torpedoboat), after the plan, with improvements, of the one that had attempted to blow up the Ironsides. The first attempt was such a complete failure that the Federal officers on the outside blockade had grown somewhat careless. As early as January 14, 1864, the Navy Department had written to Rear-Admiral Dahlgren, informing him that it had received notice that the Confederates had on foot a plan to blow up his fleet, and that it considered it of sufficient importance to notify him of it. Dahlgren, however, did not think that such a plan would be carried out against the vessels blockading outside of the harbor, but only against the iron-clads on the inside; but, at the same time, thought it advisable to give notice to the officers on the o

At a meeting of the Board of Control of the Strong Band, held at their rooms on the fourth day of January, 1864, it was unanimously resolved, that the following be published as the aim, object, and intent of the Strong Band, to wit: The aim of the Strong Band is to assist the Federal Government in putting down the present infamous rebellion, in maintaining the Constitution of the United States, in enforcing the laws, and in reestablishing the Union on the basis of universal freedom, with the territorial boundaries it possessed before the revolt. The object of the Strong Band is to introduce into every department of the Government the most rigid system of retrenchment and reform, compatible with a vigorous and successful prosecution of the war; to restore the institutions of the Republic to their original purity, as founded by the patriots and sages of the Revolution, a
Doc. 51.-Department of the South. Order relating to colored troops. Department of the South, headquarters in the field, Folly Island, S. C., January 14, 1864. General orders, No. 6. the following order from the War Department is published for the information and guidance of all concerned: war Department, Washington, City, December 22, 1863. ordered: That Major-General Gillmore, commanding the department of the South, be, and he is hereby, authorized: First.

comprise the instructions given to Brigadier-General T. Seymour, relative to operations in Florida prior to the fight at Olustee on the twentieth ultimo. A brief narrative of events connected with the recent occupation of Florida, west of the St. John's River, will not be out of place. Under date of the twenty-second December, 1863, I was authorized by you to undertake such operations in my department as I might deem best, suggesting conference with Admiral Dahlgren, etc. On January fourteenth, 1864, I wrote you that, unless it would interfere with the views of the War Department, I should occupy the west bank of the St. John's River in Florida very soon, and establish small depots there, preparatory to an advance west at an early day. On January fifteenth, I wrote to the Secretary of War that I had in contemplation the occupation of Florida on the west bank of the St. John's River at a very early day. Under date of January twenty-second, you informed that in regard to my

United States flag-ship Minnesota, off Wilmington, North-Carolina, Jan. 14, 1864. sir: I have the honor to report the result of a joint army and navy expedition from Beaufort, North-Carolina, for the purpose of capturing the salt landed by the Bigelow (the abandoned prize of the army transport Fulton) at Bear Inlet, and the cargo of naval stores reported to have been collected there for shipment in her, previous to her destruction by the Mount Vernon, of this squadron, as reported by me. I arrived at Beaufort on December twenty-fourth, and found preparations for the expedition being made under Commodore Dove's directions. I directed that the Daylight and Howquah should offer their services to Colonel Jourdan, One Hundred and Fifty-eighth New-York State volunteers, (commanding the military force,) to transport troops. This offer was thankfully accepted. The vessels accordingly left Beaufort
