tened by a force of infantry, artillery, and cavalry.
At about nine o'clock, the force was withdrawn from the front, with the exception of the First North Carolina and Forty-eighth Georgia regiments, which held the advance line of pickets.
We captured, all together, one Captain and ten privates, four of the latter being wounded.
Colonel Smith recovered twenty stand of arms from the battle-field.
Our loss consisted of Third Lieutenant Ware and private S. S. Hankin, captured, and private Dardy Johnson, killed, of the cavalry, and two privates killed, and four wounded, of the Forty-fourth Georgia regiment.
Some six of the First North Carolina volunteers were missing last night, having been lost in the swamp.
All but three, however, have returned, and it is hoped that all will be present before nightfall.
I am, very respectfully,
Your obedient servant, R. S. Ripley, Brigadier-General.
