h. The President and General Hood, with their respective staffs, rode out to the front to-day, and were enthusiastically received by the troops. At 8 P. M. the President was surrounded by the Twentieth Louisiana, and being called upon he delivered a short and spirited speech. The assemblage manifested by their loud and continued cheers that they would support him. General Hood was called upon and delivered a short address to the point. Speeches were made by General Howell Cobb and Governor Harris. September 27th the President and suite left at 6 P. M. for Montgomery. September 28th, by the order of President Davis, Lieutenant General Hardee was relieved of duty in this army and department and assigned to the Department of South Carolina and Florida.

Some were killed and others wounded. My son and his messenger fell immediately to the deck. A shot had passed through Guy's right lung. He sprang to his feet and cried: Whatever happens to me, keep the launch going, then instantly fell and died. Sergeant Harris, Second Infantry, whom Colonel Howard had selected to accompany him, seized the machine gun and set it in motion, firing rapidly; others of his guard from the barges quickly began their fire, while friendly Filipino pilots steered the boat, after two had been killed. The attacking force was driven off and the barges were carried on safely to their destination.
