Watson, of the Fortieth Ohio, who in the darkness charged into the rebel lines and with several of his men were surrounded and captured. He is a very valuable officer. Colonel Price was wounded severely. Colonel Champion and Lieutenant-Colonel Smith, of the Ninety-sixth Illinois,were also wounded. These officers behaved with great gallantry. In this connection I must also mention the efficient conduct of Colonel McClain and Lieutenant-Colonel Wood, Fifty-first Ohio Volunteers; Lieutenant-Colonel Evans and Major Hoskins, Twenty-first Kentucky. Every officer and man, with few exceptions, did their duty, and I regret that I cannot mention each one personally. Without the most determined courage and efficiency as soldiers on their part, I must have been beaten. I congratulate them on winning one of the most fiercely contested fights in the history of this rebellion. This fight took place on one of the spurs of Kenesaw Mountain. June 21, we strengthened our works under a heavy

ed our line running parallel with it, facing south, and went into camp. Subjoined is a list of casualties of the brigade since I assumed command of it; also a list of prisoners captured. It affords me pleasure to acknowledge the valuable assistance rendered me on all occasions in the execution of orders and in every movement we have made by the regimental, field, and line officers of this brigade. My thanks are especially due to Colonel McClain, Fifty-first Ohio Volunteers; Lieutenant-Colonel Evans, commanding Twenty-first Kentucky Volunteers; Lieutenant-Colonel Northup, commanding Twenty-third Kentucky Volunteers; Lieutenant-Colonel Tassin, commanding Thirty-fifth Indiana Volunteers; Major Hicks, commanding Ninety-sixth Illinois Volunteers; Captain Matchett, commanding Fortieth Ohio Volunteers; Captain Humphrey, commanding Forty-fifth Ohio Volunteers, and Captain Taylor, commanding Eighty-fourth Indiana Volunteers. They have shown themselves amid hardships and dangers to be

emy, resulting in no loss to us. On the 30th the division marched ten miles toward Jonesborough, Ga., and encamped near Mrs. Evans', on the Fayetteville and Atlanta road. On the 31st the division marched to Renfroe's and remained there till near sun that place, where instructions were received from General Davis, commanding the corps, to proceed to my former camp at Mrs. Evans' and remain there that night. On the 1st day of September I received orders to move to the support of General Baird and take position on his right, which was then on the Atlanta and Jonesborough road, east of Mrs. Evans'. Before going into position there I received orders to proceed about two and a half miles toward Jonesborough, and take a position facing the toalf miles distant. I have omitted to state above that the First Brigade and Nineteenth Indiana Battery were detached at Mrs. Evans' and sent to Renfroe's to protect the train of the army in accordance with orders received. From the point designated

. Captain: I have the honor to submit for the information of the general commanding the division the following report of the operations of this brigade on the 1st instant: At an early hour in the morning we took up our line of march from Mrs. Evans' farm in the direction of the railroad leading from Atlanta to Macon. We marched in rear of the Third Brigade. After proceeding some four or five miles, we reached a point on the Jonesborough road, about a mile and a half from the town and thhe right on the 26th, went into camp, and remained there during next day, and on the evening of the 28th reached the West Point railroad, which we assisted in destroying on the 29th. On the 30th moved again to the right, camping on the farm of Mrs. Evans, about two miles from Renfroe's. The 31st marched to Renfroe's in the morning, went into line of battle, and about the middle of the afternoon moved in the direction of the Macon railroad for about a mile and a half, when we were halted and ord

lendid style and did great execution. On the 5th of July an advance was made of a few miles, and the corps rested until the 17th. Here the command was consolidated to one battalion, under command of Captain Kellogg, and I took command of my company. I cannot close this report without alluding to the unflinching devotion of officers and men to their arduous duties during this campaign. The non-commissioned officers behaved with great gallantry, and without an exception did their duty nobly. Color Sergts. R. W. Evans and Willis G. C. Hickman distinguished themselves. Sergealit Crandall, Company G, First Battalion, always faithful, died a hero's death inside the enemy's works, in a charge. First Sergt. W. W. Bell, Company H (First), deserves promotion for gallantry and good conduct. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, G. W. Smith, Captain, Eighteenth U S., Infantry. Capt. William J. Fetterman, Actg. Asst. Adjt. Gen., 2d Brig., 1st Div., 14th A-rmy Corps.

ibes than were those of the departed statesman who had been thus libelled. August 16th. Prisoner suffering severely, but in a less critical state, the erysipelas now showing itself in his nose and forehead. Found that a carbuncle was forming on his left thigh, Mr. Davis urging this as a proof of a malarial atmosphere in his cell, reiterating his wish that, if the Government wanted to be rid of him without trial, it might take some quicker process. August 20th. Called with Captain Evans, officer of the day. Mr. Davis suffering great prostration, a cloud of erysipelas covering his whole face and throat. The carbuncle much inflamed. Spirits exceedingly dejected, evinced by anxiety for his wife and children. That he should die without opportunity of rebutting in public trial the imputed conspiracy to assassinate Mr. Lincoln, was referred to frequently and painfully. That history would do him justice, and the criminal absurdity of the charge be its own refutation, he ha

ablish my line between Jackson and Canton, as the junction of the two commands had become impossible. On the twentieth and twenty-first of May I was joined by the brigades of Generals Gist, Ector, and McNair. The division of General Loring, cut off from General Pemberton in the battle of Baker's Creek, reached Jackson on the twentieth, and General Maxey, with his brigade, on the twenty-third. By the fourth of June the army had, in addition to these, been reenforced by the brigade of General Evans, the division of General Breckinridge, and the division of cavalry, numbering two thousand eight hundred, commanded by Brigadier-General W. H. Jackson. Small as was this force, about twenty-four thousand, infantry and artillery, not one third of that of the enemy, it was deficient in artillery, in ammunition for all arms and field transportation, and could not be moved upon that enemy, already intrenching his large force, with any hope of success. The draft upon the country had so fa
Rock Creek, in Wayne County. Benjamin Burke, a citizen, Hudson Burke, a discharged soldier, James Burke, of Wolford's cavalry, and another citizen, named James Davis, having received intimation of a band of twenty-eight men, under command of Captain Evans, of the famous band of rebel robbers that infest Wayne and Clinton counties, of this State, known as Champ Fergurson's men, having stopped at the house of Jonathan Burke, to spend the night, determined to attempt their capture. Four men agaias upon them, sprang from their beds, leaving their clothes and guns behind, and rushed for the doors. Out they rushed, without any thing on but shirts and drawers; some without the latter, even, rushed out to take leg-bail. Hudson Burke met Capt. Evans at the door; both fired at the same time. Burke was slightly wounded in the head, but the infamous Evans was instantly killed. Four others were slain, the remainder of the party escaping; but they abandoned every thing — all their horses, pe
