ther white handkerchief tied to another short stick in the other, came out to meet us. Can you tell us, my man, where to find Judge Ould, the Exchange Commissioner? Yas. Him and ta other 'change officers is over ter the plantation beyont Miss Grover's. Ye'll know it by its hevina nary door nur winder [the mansion, he meant]. They's all busted in. Foller the bridle-path through the timber, and keep your rag a flyina, fur our boys is thicker 'n huckelberries in them woods, and they mought ponfederacy. Indeed! Do you believe it? I don't know, of course; and his looks asked for an answer. We gave none, for all such information is contraband. We might have told him that Grant, Butler, and Foster examined their position from Mrs. Grover's house — about four hundred yards distant--two hours after the rebel cannon-ball danced a break-down on the Lieutenant-General's dinner-table. We were then introduced to the other officials--Major Henniken of the War Department, a young ma

Eddy's regular brigade about three hundred, including Captain Kellogg, Eighteenth United States, arm; Lieutenant Powell and Captain Burrows, Eighteenth United States, slight; Lieutenant McConnell, Sixteenth United States, slight; Lieutenant Honey and Lieutenant Knapp, Sixteenth, wounded. Morgan's division, Lum's brigade, three hundred, including Colonel Grover, Seventeenth New York, severe; Major Barnett, Tenth Michigan, killed; Captain Knox, Tenth Michigan, killed, and Captain Turbis, Tenth Michigan, wounded.

avy rains of January had swelled the river, broken the pontoon bridge, and overflowed the whole bottom, so that the causeway was four feet under water, and General Slocum was compelled to look higher up for a passage over the Savannah river. He moved up to Sister's Ferry, but even there the river with its overflowed bottoms was near three miles wide, and he did not succeed in getting his whole wing across until during the first week of February. In the mean time General Grant had sent me Grover's division of the Nineteenth corps to garrison Savannah, and had drawn the Twenty-third corps, Major-General Schofield, from Tennessee, and sent it to reinforce the commands of Major-Generals Terry and Palmer, operating on the coast of North Carolina, to prepare the way for my coming. On the eighteenth of January I transferred the forts and city of Savannah to Major-General Foster, commanding the Department of the South, imparted to him my plans of operations, and instructed him how to fo
rling an officer as is known in the service. He will do the rebels and their shattered cause as much damage as any General in the army. During the twenty-first, General Foster drove in the rebel pickets twice — the One Hundredth regiment, New York volunteers, Colonel Dandy, making two most gallant charges, upon which he was heartily congratulated by General J. B. Howell, commanding the First brigade, First division. Captain Granger, Company K, of the One Hundredth, charged fully up to Mrs. Grover's, driving the enemy from that point, they being there in force. Captain Meborne, of the First New York mounted rifles, also gallantly drove the enemy three hours. The rebel picket line is in range of ours, and the enemy develops a large adjacent force. They are also reported to be in full force, with infantry and cavalry, under command of Lee — another nephew of General R. E. Lee--at Chapin's Bluff, four miles and a half from the Grover house. The gunboats commenced shelling the ene
ston, June 14. For some time past it has been known that a batch of Yankee prisoners, comprising the highest rank now in our hands, were soon to be brought hither to share the pleasure of the bombardment. They accordingly arrived on Sunday. We give a list of their names and rank: Brig.-Gen. Seymour, Col. W. C. Lee, Brig.-Gen. Wessels, Col. R. White, Brig.-Gen. Scammon, Col. H. O. Bolinger, Brig.-Gen. Shaler, Col. H. L. Brown, Brig.-Gen. Heckman, Col. E. L. Dana, Col. T. G. Grover, Col. E. Fardell, Col. R. Hawkins, Lt.-Col. E. G. Hays, Col. W. Harriman, Lt.-Col. N. B. Hunter, Col. J. H. Lebman, Lt.-Col. T. N. Higgin botham, Col. O. H. Lagrange, Major J. E. Clarke, Major D. A. Carpenter, Major W. Crandall, Major H. D. Gant, Major J. Hall, Major J. N. Johnson, Major E. W.

ow by a land march to Augusta as its permanent garrison. Another brigade of infantry was ordered to occupy Orangeburg, South Carolina, the point furthest in the interior that can at present be reached by rail from the sea-coast (Charleston). On the first of May I went on to Savannah, where General Gillmore also joined me, and the arrangements ordered for the occupation of Augusta were consummated. At Savannah I found the city in the most admirable police, under direction of Brevet Major-General Grover, and the citizens manifested the most unqualified joy to hear that, so far as they were concerned, the war was over. All classes, Union men as well as former rebels, did not conceal, however, the apprehensions naturally arising from a total ignorance of the political conditions to be attached to their future state. Anything at all would be preferable to this dread uncertainty. On the evening of the second of May I returned to Hilton Head, and there, for the first time, receiv
re having been some depredations committed. There is a question as to the validity of these paroles. Shall they cease to be issued, or the form be changed? E. Upton, Brevet Major-General United States Volunteers. [Telegraph, Augusta, May 3, 1865.] Major-General Wilson, Commanding Cavalry Corps, Macon I arrived this morning; have sent the torpedo operator who laid the obstructions in the Savannah river down to remove them; will take them four to six days. Will send communication to General Grover to-morrow morning by Captain Lamar, of General McLaws staff. Atlanta has rations enough if the soldiers have not appropriated them to supply the paroled men of Lee's and Johnston's armies. The citizens fear a disturbance should Wheeler's men pass this way, and it may be necessary for their protection, as well as the vast amount of government property here, to have a dismounted force sent by rail, to garrison the place, while the troops are in transitu. Lee's army has mostly passed thr
the Shenandoah valley. I therefore determined to move back to Halltown, carry out my instructions to destroy forage and subsistence, and increase my strength by Grover's division of the Nineteenth corps, and Wilson's division of cavalry, both of which were marching to join me, via Snicker's gap. Emory was ordered to move to Winc joined by General Wilson's division of cavalry. Merritt, after his handsome engagement near Front Royal, was ordered back to the vicinity of White Post, and General Grover's division joined Emory at Berryville. The enemy having a signal station on Three-top mountain, almost overhanging Strasburg, and from which every movement mspectfully call attention to the accompanying sub-reports for such particulars as will, I trust, do full justice to all.
