and more than once abandoned by their infantry supports, both officers and enlisted men manfully stood by their guns with a courage and devotion worthy of the highest commendation. Where all did so well, it would be invidious to make distinction, and I therefore simply give the names of all the officers engaged viz.: Major Hunt; Captains Carlisle, Ayres, Griffin, Tidball, and Arnold; Lieutenants Platt, Ransom, Thompson, Webb, Barriga, Green, Edwards, Dresser, Wilson, Throckmorton, Cushing, Harris, Butler, Fuller, Lyford, Will, Benjamin, Babbitt, Haines, Ames, Hasbrouck, Kensel, Harrison, Reed, Barlow, Noyes, Kirby, Elderkin, Ramsay, and Craig. The two latter were killed. I am, sir, very respectfully your obedient servant, Wm. F. Barry, Major 5th Artillery. Medical and surgical report. Arlington, Department N. E. Va., July 26, 1861, Being chief of the Medical Staff with the Army in the Department of N. E. Virginia, I have the honor to make the following report of so m
houlder-joint of a sergeant of a Maine or a New Hampshire regiment, who had a brother about 17 years of age, who had remained behind to take care of him. This man died under the operation. The next operation was that of my friend Wm. Smith, of Brooklyn, whom I had conveyed to the hospital. His foot was amputated. During this time Drs. Foster, Swift, and Winston, of the Eighth New York; Dr. De Grant, Dr. Griswold, Dr. Buxton, and the doctor of the Fourth Maine; Dr. Stewart, of Minnesota; Harris, of Rhode Island, and four others whose names I did not learn, one of whom, I believe, was the surgeon of the West Point battery, were attending to the wounded of their respective regiments. Private Tyler, of the West Point battery, had his thigh amputated and died that night. Cornelius, Col. Martin's servant, who was wounded while assisting the colonel to dismount, also died. Mullen, Second Rhode Island, and two of the Seventy-first, whose names I do not know, were found dead next mornin

No trouble was taken to ascertain what their desires were — they were at once handed over to this Southern Confederacy. Mr. Johnson here gave a statement of the provisions of the Tennessee secession ordinance, etc. The eastern portion of the State, he said, had rejected the ordinance by a large majority, and would always remain firmly opposed to it. He referred to the refusal of Gov. Harris to furnish arms to East Tennessee, unless the people would agree to fight for the State Government. Speaking of the persecution of the Union men in Tennessee, he said: But while this contest has been going on, a portion of our fellow-citizens have been standing up for the Constitution and the Union, and because they have dared to stand upon the great embattlement of constitutional liberties, exercising the freedom and the liberty of speech, a portion of our people have declared that w

McClellan is a sufficient guarantee for the fulfilment of every stipulation on his part. I am, sir, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, S. B. Buckner, Inspector-General. To His Excellency B. Magoffin, Frankfort, Kentucky. General Buckner to Governor Magoffin. Headquarters Ky. State Guards, Paducah, June 15, 1861. sir:--On the 11th inst., I advised Governor Harris, of Tennessee, of the agreement which has been entered into with Gen. McClellan, and of the purpose of Kentucky to carry out with the force at her disposal the neutral position which her Legislature and her people have assumed. He gave me every assurance that the territory of Kentucky would be respected by Tennessee and the Southern States; and that only in the event of an evident necessity, after the neutrality of Kentucky had been first violated by the United States forces, would any

ere present, may be considered substantially correct. On Monday, Colonel Smith, hearing that the State troops, under General Harris, were encamped near Florida, left Monroe Station with a force of 500 men, to disperse them. After passing Florida, ae other side of which the State troops were encamped, his force was suddenly fired upon from the roadside by about 200 of Harris's command. At this spot there was an open field, lying to the right of the road, and about eighty yards in width. The She Federal forces returned the fire without effect, and retired to Monroe Station to await reenforcements, the balance of Harris's command having crossed the ford and commenced a system of guerilla warfare. After retreating a few miles, the Federal e. Col. Smith, as soon as he reached the latter place, threw his entire force into a large building used as an academy. Harris's command, some 2,500 in number, surrounded him and brought two six-pound cannon to bear on the building. Owing to the d

Doc. 158.-the military power of Tennessee. Letter from Governor Harris. To the Editors of the Memphis Avalanche:-- Your editorial of yesterday morning justifies me in asking the use of your columns to correct an error into which a portion of the public press have fallen. That error is in relation to the supposed existence of an issue between the President of the Confederate States and myself as to the terms upon which the Provisional army of Tennessee is to be transferred to the n themselves competent and worthy. More than this I shall not ask at his hands. In the mean time I shall continue to cooperate most cordially with the President, and his various officers, as I have heretofore done, in promptly carrying forward all military movements deemed by them proper to be made. I have at this moment in motion, under the orders of the President, eight Tennessee regiments. I have deemed this explanation due to the public and myself. Respectfully Isham G. Harris.

Whereas, by the act of the General Assembly, passed May 6, 1861, it is made the duty of the Governor to raise, organize, and equip a provisional force of fifty-five thousand volunteers, twenty-five thousand of whom, or any less number which the wants of the service may demand, shall bto the field large additional armaments to effect their purpose of overriding and trampling upon the rights and liberties of our people; Now, therefore, I, Isham G.
