The rebel battery swept the point with grape and canister, but our men fought from behind stumps, trerebels have not changed the name,) and we took the road to the White Sulphur. When within four miles of the latter place, two of the poor wounded men belonging to Ewing's battery came to us. One of the poor fellows had lost a leg, and came on crutches. They were overjoyed to meet us. We arrived at the Springs at ten o'clock, and During the march this morning, we were startled by an explosion, as if a steam-boiler or mine had burst, and a large volume of smoke arose.

To Major-General Halleck, General-in-Chief: I have the honor to report that I cut the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad at Salem on the sixteenth instant, and have arrived safely at this point with my command, consisting of the Second, Third, and Eighth Virginia mounted infantry, Fourteenth Pennsylvania, Dobson's battalion of cavalry, and Ewing's battery, at Salem. Three depots were destroyed, containing two thousand barrels of flour, ten thousand bushels of wheat, one hundred thousand bushels shelled corn, fifty thousand bushels oats, two thousand barrels meat, several cords of leather, one thousand sacks of salt, thirty-one boxes clothing, twenty bales of cotton, a large amount of harness, shoes, and saddles, equipments, tools, oil, tar, and various other stores, and one hundred wagons.

General Lee's cavalry and the Thirteenth army corps continued their precipitate retreat from the battle-field to Pleasant Hill.

In the evening, moved down south-west into the valley at Israel's house; rested until nine o'clock P. M. Was ordered and marched westward to the Stone Church, near Catoosa Platform, and rested the balance of the night. February 27th. Started at twelve o'clock M., and marched to Ewing's farm, north nine miles, and camped for the night. February 28th. Marched at seven o'clock A. M. Arrived in camp at this place at twelve o'clock M. Command in good condition. I can with pleasure refer to the prompt and willing cooperation and obedience of the officers and men of my command during this short campaign, and I regard myself as truly fortunate, in being surrounded by first-class officers, both of infantry and artillery, and braver soldiers never went upon a battle-field.
