prompt and efficient in conveying my orders under fire of the enemy. I transmit, enclosed, the reports of division and brigade commanders immediately concerned in the final operations, as also of Capt. Mower, commanding in the batteries, and of Major Lothrop, Chief of Artillery. Col. J. W. Bissell, Engineers, has been too incessantly occupied to make a written report, but desires to mention the following officers of this regiment who displayed unusual gallantry: Lieut.-Col. Adams, Captains Dean, Hill, and Tweeddale, and Lieuts. Odenbaugh, Randolph, and Besier. Our whole loss during the operation was fifty-one killed and wounded. A detailed list will be transmitted as soon as it can be made. The enemy's loss cannot be ascertained. A number of his dead were left unburied, and over a hundred new graves attested that he must have suffered severely. I am, General, respectfully, Your obedient servant, John Pope, Brigadier-General Commanding. Brig.-Gen. G. W. Cullum, Chief
d the regiment on the morning of the sixth, but partially recovered from a severe illness, was wounded and remained with his command, and was particularly distinguished. Lieut. Field, commanding company A, whose coolness and bravery have always made his command invincible, was borne to the rear during the first engagement, severely and, I fear, mortally wounded. Lieuts. Doane, McWilliams, Town, Hapeman and Walrod, all distinguished themselves by their bravery and gallant bearing. Lieut. Dean, commanding company D, added new laurels to those he won at Donelson. When the colors fell from the hand of the wounded bearer, he was first to seize and bear them on with the regiment. Acting-Quartermaster Goodrich, ever faithful to his trust, a brave soldier, was shot by my side, through the head. To the gallant Adjutant Phillips, of the Seventieth Ohio, and his forty brave men, I am under obligations for their support to our decimated lines. I need only say their noble bearing,
nion men to pull off their coats and boots, that they might appropriate them. They have taken fourteen citizens of Russell County away as prisoners; they robbed the store of John A. Leveredge, at Rowenas, of all his goods, and destroyed his books and notes to the value of eighteen thousand dollars; they plundered the store of George W. Ludwil, in Jamestown, of all the clothing it contained, and also took his horse. In Wayne, near the line of Russell County, they violated the person of a Mrs. Dean in the presence of her father-in-law, an infirm old man aged ninety, and left her nearly dead, and committed a like fiendish act upon two sisters named Harris, and treated them so barbarously that they have since died, or rather Mr. Green has heard a report of their death. In several of our border counties half of the male inhabitants are in the Union armies. Russell, with a voting population of nine hundred and fifty, has sent five companies to the field, and about seventy more men are
several days, but who now, against medical advice, was seen upon his horse, willing and ready for any duty which his physical strength would enable him to perform. Upon moving out from camp, the following field, staff and line-officers were in their respective proper positions; Colonel C. C. Dodge, Lieut.-Colonel B. F. Onderdonk, Majors Wheelan and Schiefflin, Surgeon Bennett, Assistant Surgeon Wright, Adjutant M. A. Downing; Captains Terwilliger, Poor, Gregory, Sanger, Masston, Ellis, and Dean; Lieutenants Harman, Penny, Freeborn, Adams, Disosway, Varick, Simmonds, Wheelan, Warren, Ball, Wright, Ergelke and Cronin. Upon passing their camp the Eleventh Pennsylvania cavalry, under Colonel Spear, fell into column, having two howitzers along. Our own howitzer battery, under Lieutenant Thomas Fairgraves, formerly Adjutant of the First Fire Zouaves, also was in position in our own regiment. As we moved on we discovered infantry regiments in motion, and soon learned that the cavalry fo

Wednesday, March 25.--On the way down, the boats stopped at the plantations and took aboard what cotton could be. conveniently carried, and the rest was destroyed. Some of the soldiers, on their own responsibility, burned three or four buildings. All the boats took on what cotton they could. Two prisoners, Dean and Howe, who had been detained, were released and sent ashore. On Wednesday, Gen. Sherman's sick were put ashore at Hill's. Information reached here that the Dew Drop, with one thousand two hundred rebel soldiers, had followed as far as Little Deer Creek, six miles distant. Late in the afternoon, Gen. Sherman's force were engaged in skirmishing with a rebel force near by. One of the Eighty-third Indiana was killed. The rebels had three regiments of infantry and one of cavalry. Thursday,
g on the road,) when General Emory ordered the Fourth Wisconsin, Colonel Bean, to be thrown forward to hold the woods and sugar-house on the right of the main road, as the enemy's defences and principal guns were masked by them. This position was contested with spirit all night. The pickets were firing and skirmishing among the trees and buildings during the whole of the time; but the ground was firmly and gallantly held by the Fourth Wisconsin, with but small loss on our side. Lieutenant-Colonel Dean had his horse shot from under him during the engagement. About one o'clock on Tuesday morning, Col. Bean sent a communication to General Paine, stating that under cover of the fog and darkness the enemy had been busily at work near their picket-line all night, hammering and chopping, leading him to believe that they were planting batteries, or preparing in some manner to give us a warm reception in the morning. General Emory was informed of these facts. He at once gave General

g them. Before the battle, and in anticipation of the order from General Thomas, the trains had been sent back and the preparations made for the army to retire to Brentwood, the troops to commence withdrawing from the line on the south side of the river immediately after dark. In consequence of the battle, the movement of the troops was suspended until midnight. General Thomas promptly replied to my first report in these words: Your telegram is just received. It is glorious news, and I congratulate you and the brave men of your command; but you must look out that the enemy does not still persist. The courier you sent to General Cooper, at Widow Dean's, could not reach there, and reports that he was chased by rebel cavalry on the whole route, and finally came into this place. Major-General Steedman, with five thousand men, should be here in the morning. When he arrives I will start General A. J. Smith's command and General Steedman's troops to your assistance at Brentwood.

The Episcopal Theological School. The Rev. George Hodges, D. D., Dean. The group of buildings on Brattle Street, between the Washington Elm and Craigie House, reminds many visitors of the beauties and delights of Oxford, or of that other Cambridge from which this takes its name. The green quadrangle, with the chapel and the refectory on one side, the library at the end, and Lawrence Hall on the other side, and with the great tree in the midst, about which Mr. Longfellow wrote a sonnet, has all the academic quiet and scholarly seclusion of those fair gardens of the elder universities which are set beside the Isis and the Cam. There is this difference, however, that while the old quadrangles are quite shut in, so that the passer-by gets but a glimpse of them through the wicket of a gate, this is fairly and generously open to the street, in symbol, as Bishop Lawrence used to say when he was dean, of the teaching of the school. The year 1867, in which the school was founded, was
