The present operation I was afraid of from the first, as there were too many contingencies. I should have wished more concentration, but still hope the effect produced by the expedition may prove beneficial. I am, General, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, (Signed) G. E.

Too much praise cannot be awarded to the brave officers and men who encountered and defeated twice their numbers at Ocean Pond, and I commend them to the notice of the government; they are, in all respects, worthy comrades of those who, on other fields, have done honor to Southern manhood.

cond Manassas (page 538, volume viii), in our last number, we should have allowed the name to be corrupted into Florrence. Colonel Ed. A. Palfrey, of New Orleans, informs us that he was not the author of the article on The secret history of Gettysburg, with which we credited him in our last, but that it was written by Captain W. J. Seymour, who served on General Hays's staff — the only connection Colonel Palfrey having with it being to furnish copies of the letters of Generals Lee and Cooper. We regret that we were led into this mistake by the friend who sent us the paper. We are always careful to have a responsible name attached to everything we publish, and this is the first instance in which we have gotten the wrong name. Major Irving A. Buck, of Baltimore, the name signed to the paper, and not Major Brock, the name which the printers put at the head of it, was the author of the interesting sketch of Cleburne and his division at Missionary Ridge and Ringgold Gap, w

d removed from the boat several essential parts of her machinery, he was enabled to recover them and get under way on the night of the 27th ultimo. At 1 o'clock, A. M., he struck the enemy's flag-ship Octarora, abaft the wheel-house. The torpedo missed fire. The greatest consternation and confusion were occasioned on the ship, so that the fire of artillery and musketry, which was directed against the St. Patrick, failed to strike her, and she returned with her crew to the protection of our batteries. Some portion of her machinery was damaged during the expedition, but Mr. Walker is confident that he will be ready to go out again by the next dark moon. I take pleasure in reporting to the war department the fine conduct of Lieutenant Walker, and in recommending him, through you, to the favorable notice of the navy department. I remain, very respectfully, General, Your obedient servant, Dabney H. Maury, Major General Commanding. To General S. Cooper, A. I. G., Richmond, Va.

Battle of Hatcher's Run-telegram from General Lee. [Received at Richmond, Va., February 6th, 11 o'clock P. M., 1865, by telegraph from Headquarters A. N. Va.] To General S. Cooper, Adjutant-and Inspector-General: The enemy moved in strong force yesterday to Hatcher's Run. Part of his infantry, with Gregg's cavalry, crossed and proceeded on the Vaughan road — the infantry to Cattail creek, the cavalry to Dinwiddie Court-house, where its advance encountered a portion of our cavalry and retired. In the afternoon parts of Hill's and Gordon's troops demonstrated against the enemy on the left of Hatcher's Run, near Armstrong's mill. Finding him entrenched, they were withdrawn after dark. During the night the force that had advanced beyond the creek returned to it, and were reported to be recrossing. This morning Pegram's division moved down the right bank of the creek to reconnoiter, when it was vigorously attacked. The battle was obstinately contested several hours, but Gene

Scammon, commanding forces in Kanawha my's property, and a number of prisoners, and diverted the attention of the enemy in that quarter from this part of the country to the protection of their own border.

ackson's movements, we luxuriated in the green fields, the beautiful groves the clear streams, the magnificent scenery, and (what was, perhaps, even more appreciated), the delicious milk and elegant apple-butter of the glorious valley. But we had not long to wait. General Banks retreated down the valley, and took a strong position at Strausburg, while Jackson raised the drooping hopes of the Confedracy by the following characteristic dispatch: Valley District, May 9, 1862. To General S. Cooper: God blessed our arms with victory at McDowell yesterday. T. J. Jackson, Major-General. After defeating Milroy — Fremont's advance guard — and pursuing him until he was driven out of the range of proposed operations in the valley, he ordered Ewell to move down the Luray valley, while he marched across by Harrisonburg down the main pike to Newmarket, and then over Massanuttin mountain to join Ewell in his advance. I shall never forget the enthusiasm with which we started on t
