p full supplies of forage. This continued until near the end of January, when the management of the railroad had been greatly improved by the intervention of Governor Brown, and a better system introduced in the manner of forwarding military supplies. This scarcity of food made it necessary to send almost half of the artillers and Baldwin's brigades, the last two sent from Mississippi, returned to that department in obedience to orders from the Secretary of War. At the same time Governor Brown transferred two regiments of State troops to the army. They were placed as guards for the protection of the railroad-bridges between Dalton and Atlanta.

General Pemberton, as much interested as any one could be in bold measures for the relief of Vicksburg, thought forty thousand men a minimum for the attempt. Governor Pettus, Honorables A. G. Brown, D. F. Kenner, E. Barksdale, and W. P. Harris, See their dispatch, pages 212, 213. thought thirty thousand more troops necessary, they being on the spot.

Brigadier-General Tracey, of Stevenson's division, had reached Grand Gulf with his brigade on the 30th.

Five regiments and a battery passed down by Brown and Johnson's. Wagon-trains continue to pass back and forth. My reinforcements will be very small, and arrive very slowly. If possible, Port Hudson should be reenforced. I have been forced to draw largely from there. I have no major-general t

About mid-day the enemy was reported advancing, when my line was forward, Hindman on the left, Stewart in the centre, and Stevenson on the right. At five o'clock P.
