ce on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses. In the Senate, Mr. Trumbull made a report, which was concurred in. Mr. Trumbull then moved that the Senate disagree to the House amendment to the Senate amendment striking out the section relative to the land grant railroads, and ask a further conference. The motion was agreed to, and Mr. Harris, Mr. Howe, and Mr. Willey were appointed managers. The House agreed to a further conference, and the Speaker appointed Mr. Thayer, of Pennsylvania, Mr. Morris, of Ohio, and Mr. Kernan, of New-York, managers. Mr. Thayer reported to the House that the committee of conference could not agree, and he moved that the House agree to the amendment of the Senate, striking out the proviso relating to land grant railroads, with an amendment referring the matter to the Supreme Court for adjudication. Mr. Morrill, of Vermont, moved that the House recede from its disagreement to the amendment of the Senate, and it was agreed to — yeas, sixty-three; nays,

Roarker Lane, of Company E, Fifth Virginia cavalry, who at the time was acting as my volunteer Aid. I cannot speak in too high terms of the behavior of the officers of this brigade. Colonel Barbour, though wounded, was from time to time with his command, giving all the assistance he could. Major Morris, wounded in the foot, left the hospital on horseback and assisted in re-forming his regiment. Major Mayhew, after the left wing of the Thirty-third was withdrawn, and Lieutenant-Colonel Cowan, wounded, gallantly commanded the skirmishers in the night attack, was wounded in the charge the next day, and is now thought to be in the hands of the enemy. Lieutenant-Colonel Spear was wounded in one of the night attacks, and Colonels Avery and Haywood, Lieutenant-Colonels George and Ashcroft, a
le to charge their breastworks. My ammunition becoming exhausted, by orders, I fell back some four hundred yards, leaving a line of skirmishers in my front to oppose the advance of the enemy, until my ammunition could be replenished. The enemy were too much hurt to advance, and were well satisfied to hold their works. I remained in this position some hours. In this engagement my loss was very great, amounting to some three hundred and fifty killed and wounded. Among the number was Captain W. J. Morris, of Third and Fifth Confederate regiment, a brave and worthy officer. Captain McKnight, of Second Tennessee regiment, also fell in these engagements in the faithful discharge of his duties. Major Driven, of the Second Tennessee, received a most painful and serious wound in the head. Adjutant Greenwood, of First Arkansas, one of the best and most gallant officers in the army, fell mortally wounded. Here also my Inspector-General, Captain Hugh S. Otey, a brave and faithful officer,
ections given for the disposition of troops ordered by the commanding General for reinforcements. On the ninth, the enemy landed a strong force on Battery Island and unmasked works on Little Folly bearing upon our positions at the south end of Morris. The works at that point were, from various causes, incomplete, and, from want of transportation, the arrival of reinforcements was tardy. Endeavors were made to strengthen our position on Morris Island, but, from lack of force, no great impr, manned by crews from the navy. These performed their duty well, and my thanks are due to Flag Officer J. R. Tucker, C. S. N., and the officers and men of his command, for the valuable assistance rendered. The fourth passed very quietly on Morris Island, there being very little firing on either side. Only the usual duties occurred in other parts of the command. On the fifth, the two ten-inch guns and other armament of Battery Wagner were in readiness for action. The enemy showing but
