Two Union gunboats opened fire with shot and shell on Darien, Georgia, without inflicting any damage.--Fast day in the rebel States.--Savannah News, May 17.--(Doc. 39.) Colonel Johnson Hagood, Provost-Marshal of the Second Military District of South-Carolina, issued the following from his headquarters at Charleston: In compliance with instructions received from Brigadier-General Ripley, Capt. Francis D. Lee, Engineer Corps, is empowered to impress any negro carpenters and other artisans, not now employed in government service, whether the same be slaves or not. Captain Lee will be furnished with such force as may be necessary to carry out the instructions. The

o hold our works there; and, the enemy's pickets along the Stono having been increased at that time, I instructed General Johnson Hagood to advance at once on the position occupied by the Federals, and thus ascertain what was their real intent as to James Island. This was done with General Hagood's usual promptitude of action, and on the 16th the Federal forces were driven to the shelter of their gun-boats, our troops occupying the ground they had lost on that occasion. My order to Major Harrition of them succeeded in crossing the ditch and actually gained a foot-hold on the southern salient of the battery. General Hagood, with Colonel G. P. Harrison's 32d Georgia, arrived opportunely at that hour, in obedience to my orders, and was of g effect the demolition of Wagner also. In spite of the ability and determination of the several commanders — Taliaferro, Hagood, A. H. Colquitt, Clingman, R. F. Graham, Harrison, and L. M.

Ours was quite insignificant. General Hagood and his command became the heroes of the ddanger. His error lay in the fact that one of Hagood's advanced regiments, having unexpectedly comee from my official report of the battle: Hagood and [Bushrod] Johnson were thrown forward withom the reserve artillery, under Major Owen. Hagood, with great vigor and dash, drove the enemy fr — and General Hoke confirmed the claim — that Hagood's brigade alone, with the assistance of no oth own, none the less, with much stubbornness in Hagood's and Johnson's front; and, though giving way

2 being still ours. The 59th Virginia, arriving at that time, was sent on the City Point road toward Battery No. 2, to arrest the retreat of the line on the left.--G. T. B. But just then very opportunely appeared, advancing at double-quick, Hagood's gallant South Carolina brigade, followed soon afterward by Colquitt's, Clingman's, and, in fact, by the whole of Hoke's division. They were shown their positions, on a new line selected at that very time by my orders, a short distance in the re in the evening and been placed in position on our new line, a fact which had given a feeling of unequivocal relief to all who had seen or taken part in the unequal contest of that memorable day. But Hoke's division, composed then of Colquitt's, Hagood's, and Clingman's brigades, with the addition later on of Martin's, had never belonged to the Army of North Virginia, though sent temporarily to reinforce it after the battle of Drewry's Bluff, on the 16th and 17th of May.

Hoke's division of Ewell's corps. Hill was a dashing general, and he made a gallant effort on Warren's lines, now pretty well intrenched, assaulting under cover of a cannonade of thirty guns. But Griffin and Ayres were both old artillerists, and Hill's long, serried lines were smashed by our guns before they got within reach of our musketry. Later in the day Mahone selected a point, and hurled his division with his well-known fiery energy fairly up to our works on the left, but in vain. Hagood's brigade alone got inside, and were there made prisoners in a body, though part of them, in the confusion and delay to take them in, re-opened fire and made their escape. Besides all the wounded, over two hundred Confederates lay dead upon the field in front of our defenses — a sad sight, for, enemies as they were, they were bone of our bone and flesh of our flesh. Thus ended the last and most reckless attempt to dislodge Warren. The total Union loss was 251 killed, 1148 wounded, and 2

ts men, who were taken off by the boats of the navy. In the meantime tile remainder of Ames's division had captured 218 men and 10 commissioned officers of the North Carolina reserves and other prisoners. From them I learned that Kirkland's and Hagood's brigades of Hoke's division had left the front of tile Army of the James, near Richmond, and were then within two miles of the rear of my forces, and their skirmishers were then actually engaged, and that the remainder of Hoke's division had coght trenches to protect their advance. On these we brought to bear our single heavy gun, while the two guns on the mound battery turned their attention from the sailors afloat to the sailors on shore, but at too long range to be very effective. Hagood's brigade, sent by Bragg, was now arriving at Battery Buchanan, but the steamer bearing them was driven off by the fire of the fleet after it had succeeded in landing two South Carolina regiments, which came at a double-quick to the mound under a
