Sir — I have the honor to inclose you the report of Commander William H. Macomb, in relation to the capture of the batteries and the town of Plymouth, North Carolina, which place with all its defences was captured from our land forces some time last spring. This was a very gallant affair, and reflects great credit on the commander of the expedition and all concerned. It is a handsome finishing stroke after the blowing up of the ram. The fruits of this capture are twenty-two

Concentrating these around Rome and Kingston, Georgia, he thoroughly destroyed Nov. 2-11, 1864. such portions of the railroads and such other property as he judged might be used to his prejudice by the enemy, reserving for the last sacrifice the telegraph which still connected him with Grant, Washington, and the North; but, at length, cutting that, Nov. 11. after sending his parting messages, his army stood clear of all posts and communications — a strictly movable column — and commenced its memorable march. For this, it had been organized in two grand divisions or wings: the r

id Casey, that's nothing! Which the Swede interpreted to mean that Gustavus was small potatoes, or that the Swedish army was so. Really, most foreign officers among us are but scapegraces from abroad. The other day the Belgian Minister Sanford sent a letter asking for promotion for private Guatineau, whose pa had rendered us great service by writing in the French press.
