Picketing, watching and waiting, with plenty of drilling, were our occupations during the month of August. General Taliaferro, of Virginia, was in command on the island. Brigadier-Generals Hagood and Colquitt were also there, and Colonel Simonton was still in command of a portion of the lines. The new lines were commenced and soon completed. Why the old lines were ever located on the ground occupied by them, was one of the mysteries known only to the Engineer Department. The new lines ran from a point opposite the neck of the Secessionville Peninsula to the Stono river, between Grimballs and Dills. They were scarcely one-fourth the length of the old, and enabled the Confederates, with a smal

And now, in conclusion, I challenge those who have brought on this discussion to make up the issue tangibly as one purely of historical and military import and concern—that is, divested of all family vanities and personal ambitions, for submission, in effect, to the judicial decision of a few such men as Judge Campbell, Secretary Lamar, Senators Vance, Pugh, Colquitt and Eustis, Governor Haygood, General E. P. Alexander, or many score of such other gentlemen of the South whom I could name as capable of deciding according to the clear documentary evidence. But let the issue be made so broad as to embrace several subjects which have not been touched upon in my papers. For example to begin with, Was the military situation on the part of the Confederates in the department under the command of General A. S. Johnston such as to make the loss of Fort Donelso

Generals Cist and Colquitt were appointed a committee, with power to add four to their number, to prepare an act of incorporation and correspond wi view of securing the proper list of incorporators.

Hagood's brigade was at once dispatched by rail; Colquitt followed some time after, and the remaining brigades continued their march on also the foresight to send with it a bit of tallow candle and matches. General Colquitt at the same time coming up ahead of his brigade, in conference with that oline of Harrison's creek was determined on, and Hagood's men put in position. Colquitt's brigade arriving, took post on the right, and extended the line across the Pd the City Point road and extended to the eminence known as Hare's Hill, where Colquitt prolonged the general line. The New Market race course was in front of the rit position, then, taking the enemy's first line as a directrix, I was to clear Colquitt's front as far as Hare's Hill. While General Hoke was still explaining the ntly another battery of these was established behind his right, when it joined Colquitt.
