dams, C. S. Army. No. 2.-Lieut. Col. T. G. Woodward, First Kentucky Cavalry (Confederate). No. 1.-report of Col. John Adams, C. 8. Army. Headquarters Brigade, Camp Foster, Ala., May 10, 1862. General: Herewith I have the honor to forward a report from Lieutenant-Colonel Woodward of a skirmish with the enemy yesterday. I shall forward the prisoners over the mountain by the turnpike road to Tuscaloosa, Ala. Colonel Saunders, my aide-de-camp, has addressed a letter to Hon. Charles Gibson and Col. Levi M. Warner, at Moulton, requesting them to relieve my guard and furnish one to accompany the prisoners thence to Tuscaloosa.

I am much disappointed, but it is a relief not to cause Laura such painful anxiety as she would have felt if I had decided to go. She wept with joy when I gave it up. We had a very pleasant dinner party for the Barrett Wendells with their friends, Professor Ames, of Berkeley University, California, Waddy Longfellow, Charles Gibson, Laura, Betty, and I. She sent a letter to the Convention, which was read by Florence. In this, after recalling her Peace Crusade of 1872, she said:-- Here and there, a sisterly voice responded to my appeal, but the greater number said: We have neither time nor money that we can call our own. We cannot travel, we cannot meet together. And so my intended Peace Congress of Women melted away like a dream, and my final meeting, held in the world's great metropolis, did not promise
from Cairo Memphis Nov. 12. --The correspondent of the Appeal, of this city, says that over 500 of the Federal were killed, and 200 taken prisoners at the recent battle near Columbus. --About one-half of the prisoners were wounded. About one hundred of the wounded Confederates arrived here this morning, and every attention that skill, care, and kindness can afford will be extended to them. Lieut. Bob.
