Pegram, as usual, with McIntosh to help him, managed to find the hottest place, though perhaps Davidson might have been willing to exchange positions with them. I had forgotten to mention that at half past 3 o'clock my batteries on the right, except one section of Pegram's, were relieved by the corps of Colonel Brown. The chief surgeon of the division, Dr. Powell, by his system, and order, and untiring personal attention, secured more comfort to the wounded than has been usual.

Our government, after a time, got word of it, and they informed the rebels that unless Colonel Powell was released from that cell, an officer of equal rank would be put in the same condition; and then Colonel Powell came out of the cell, having been put there simply upon Turner's authority, and because he had the power to do it. A truer, better, and nobler man never lived. A better soldier

General Wharton and his command behaved throughout with their accustomed gallantry. I tender my thanks to the following members of my staff for their gallantry and good conduct, viz.,: Colonel King, Majors Burford, Jenkins, Hume, and Hill; Captains Turner, Powell, Wade, Flush, and Kennedy, and Lieutenants Pointer, Wailes, Nichol and Hatch. To Major Hume, particularly, am I indebted for his gallantry during the fight at Farmington, where he was wounded, and to Lieutenant Pointer, my Aid, for his gallantry during a cavalry charge, when he dashed upon the enemy's color-bearer, shot him, and then turned and brought the colors back to his command. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Joseph Wheeler, Major-General. appendix A. headquarters
s impossible for me to operate effectually in the Trans-Mississippi Department, to prevent the advance of the enemy to the west bank of the river. On the seventeenth April,therefore, I addressed the following telegraphic communication to Captain E. Powell, A. Q. M., at Natchez: Forward the following to Lieutenant-General Smith, or Major-General Taylor, viz.: For the want of the necessary transportation, I cannot operate effectually on the west bank of the river; the enemy is now in force at New Carthage and Richmond. I beg your attention to this. Captain Powell notified me at once that this dispatch had been forwarded by courier. On the eighteenth, I addressed a second communication, through the same medium, as follows: Lieutenant-General Smith, or Major-General Taylor: The enemy are cutting a passage from near Young's Point to Bayou Vidal, to reach the Mississippi River, near New Carthage; without co-operation it is impossible to oppose him. Inform me what action you intend
