The bill was not reported back from the Military Committee. No. Lxxv.--The Joint Resolution tendering the Thanks of the People and of Congress to Major-General William T. Sherman, and the Officers and Soldiers of his Command, for their gallant Conduct in their brilliant Movement through Georgia. In the House, on the fifth of January, 1865, Mr. Cole, of California, introduced a joint resolution tendering the thanks of Congress to Major-General William T. Sherman. The resolution declared: That the thanks of the people and of Congress be tendered to Major-General William T. Sherman, and through him to the officers and men under his command, for their gallantry and good conduct in their brilliant expedition through Georgia. On motion of Mr. Garfield, the resolution was referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. On the sixth, Mr.

The two batteries suffered much by the fire of a heavy line of skirmishers. Colonel Scales directed Major Cole, of the Twenty-second North Carolina, to dislodge them, which was handsomely done. The Sixteenth, Colonel McElroy, which had been thrown out as a support to Lao had broken on our right and were making to the rear. These skirmishers became so annoying that additional companies had to be thrown out, under the efficient Major Cole, to drive them back, which he did, and held them in check long after his ammunition had given out. Colonel McElroy, with his regiment, the Sixteenth North Carol
ctor of the army, Surgeon Guild, with the officers of his department, were untiring in their attention to the wounded. Lieutenant-Colonel Corley, chief quartermaster, took charge of the disposition and safety of the trains of the army. Lieutenant-Colonel Cole, chief commissary of its subsistence, and Lieutenant-Colonel Baldwin, chief of ordnance, was everywhere on the field, attending to the wants of his department. General Chilton, chief of staff, Lieutenant-Colonel Murray, Major Peyton, anh or picket duty for three days and nights, he volunteered to go out again, when he very coolly and deliberately loaded several guns, with which he killed several of the enemy. It is with great sorrow that I have to record the deaths of Lieutenant-Colonel Cole and Major Odell, Twenty-second North Carolina; two finer soldiers or more gallant men were not to be found in the army. They never failed me on any occasion. Lieutenant-Colonel Ashford, Lieutenants Brown and Robinson, Thirty-eighth Nor
to details. I assume that the enemy will be prepared for advance before we are, and will make it, to our advantage. Therefore I propose, both for offensive and defensive, to assemble our troops here immediately. This was not noticed. Therefore, on the twenty-fifth, I again urged the necessity of reinforcing the Army of Tennessee, because the enemy was collecting a larger force than that of the last campaign, while ours was less than it had been then. On the third of April Lieutenant-Colonel A. H. Cole arrived at Dalton to direct the procuring of artillery horses and field-transportation, to enable the army to advance. On the fourth, under Orders 32 of 1864, I applied to the chief of the conscript service for 1,000 negro teamsters. None were received. On the eighth of April, Colonel B. S. Ewell, A. A. G., was sent to Richmond to represent to the President my wish to take the offensive with proper means, and to learn his views. A few days after Brigadier-General Pendleto
fused, as I expected. My object in sending a flag so early was to get away a great number of our men who had found a little shelter near the enemy's works, and who would have been inevitably taken prisoners. I must have saved one hundred men by instructing my flag of truce officer, as he approached the fort, to order our troops still there away. We mourn the fall of many of our bravest and best officers and men; among the former are Major Shannon, Captain Ragsdale, Lieutenants Starby and Cole, of the Fifth, Major Redley, of Phillips' regiment, and A. Cartwright, of the Fourth, and others. The fort was much stronger than it was represented to be, or than we expected to find it. Had it fallen into our hands, I am satisfied, with a little work on it, we would have held it against all the gunboats below Port Hudson. Its capture and occupation would doubtless have caused great uneasiness and inconvenience to. the Federal army besieging that fortress. In this river much risk was ju
