ed to fall back rapidly to Brandy Station, the Yankees being in my rear. I had reported their advance upon Stevensburg and Brandy, and was ordered, through Lieutenant Johnston, to hold the ground in my front. One regiment of my brigade was then ordered to move rapidly to the General's headquarters, the other was instructed to covt Brandy Station. Before receiving this message, I had contemplated making an attack in rear, should it meet the General's approval. I, therefore, sent Lieutenant James Johnston to report to General Stuart, who sent me orders to hold my front. A division of my force was impossible, as I needed them all. I consider it extremely fdquarters cavalry Division, June 13th, 1863. Respectfully forwarded. It is very clear that General Robertson intended to do what was right. At the time Lieutenant Johnston reported to me, it was too late for any movement to have been made from General Robertson's front, and it would have been extremely hazardous for him to hav

In his campaign in Georgia in 1864, General Sherman, instead of attacking General Johnston at Dalton, flanked him and caused him to leave Dalton and take post at Rest Gap on May 7. Meanwhile the Army of the Ohio (Schofield) pressed heavily on Johnston's right, and the Army of the Tennessee (McPherson) appeared suddenly before thrmy was marching westward of Rocky-face Ridge for Snake Creek Gap and Resaca. Johnston, closely pursued by Howard, had taken position behind a line of intrenchments Garrard's cavalry moved towards Rome. Meanwhile Sherman was severely pressing Johnston at all points, and there was a general battle at Resaca during the afternoon aeveral strong positions and captured four guns and many prisoners. That night Johnston abandoned Resaca, fled across the Oostenaula, firing the bridges behind him, aals, after taking possession of Resaca pushed on in pursuit. After briefly resting at two or three places, Johnston took a strong position at Allatoona pass (q. v.).

0,000 men. With these he advanced against the Confederates. He sent Gen. J. D. Cox with a detachment to keep Wise in check, while with his main body, about 10,000 strong, he moved to attack Garnett at Laurel Hill, near Beverly. At the same time a detachment 4,000 strong, under General Morris, moved towards Beverly by way of Philippi, while another body, led by General Hill, was sent to West Union, to prevent the escape of any Confederates by that way over the Alleghany Mountains, to join Johnston at Winchester. Garnett was then strongly intrenched at Laurel Hill, with about 8,000 Virginians. Georgians, Tennesseeans, and Carolinians. To this camp Morris nearly penetrated, but not to attack it—only to make feints to divert Garnett while McClellan should gain his rear. There was almost daily heavy skirmishing, chiefly by Colonels Dumont and Milroy, on the part of the Nationals. So industrious and bold had been the scouts, that when McClellan appeared they gave him full informati

numbers about 27,000 men, and, with the two divisions which came down a few days ago, united with the 6,000 escaped men of Gen. Banks's expedition, will make quite a respectable force of about 40,000 men. It is said that these armies are going to Mobile, via Pascagoula, while another and not less considerable army is going to operate from some other way, such as Pensacola, and in the rear of Mobile. It is reported that Gen. Sherman, seeing that he could not easily force his way through Johnston's army, has decided to take another road on foot, along the river, up to a certain distance, so as to flank the Confederates and proceed to Mobile. It is said that he is already at Natchez, starting the movement.--We may therefore hear soon that the city is attacked simultaneously from several sides, if not completely invested. At least such is the plan contemplated by the Federal.--They expect short work and a speedy success from it. But it appears that the Confederates are not idle
this city yesterday morning. The following cases came up for settlement: A writ of habeas corpus was awarded upon the petition of John F. Brown, praying to be discharged from military service, and the Court decided to hear the case on Thursday. A similar writ was awarded to John S. Horton. Matthew Wood, a minor, was discharged, under petition accompanying a writ of habeas corpus, from the army. A writ of habeas corpus was awarded Zebulon Boon, who prayed to be discharged from the military service upon grounds of illegal detention. Frank Livingston, James Johnston, and Michael Roseberry, appeared, on their petitions for a writ praying to be discharged and claiming to belong to no military organization. Their cases were continued until to-day. T. H. Ellett's petition for a writ of habeas corpus, with a view to his discharge from the army, was partially heard and continued until this morning. The Court adjourned to meet again this morning at 11 o'clock.
