Ninth corps, with Stoneman's and Whipple's divisions, on both sides of the river, in the neighborhood of Waterloo. Eleventh corps, at Gainsville, New Baltimore, and the Gap. Pleasonton at Jefferson and Amissville, with advance on Hazel River. Bayard at Rappahannock Station and neigh-borhood. Slocum was still at Harper's Ferry and Fayetteville. There were no pontoons with the moving army at this time, and our supplies had run very low. It will be observed that directions were given in the odder from General Halleck to me, dated November fifth, to report at once a plan for the future operations of the army; which was done. This plan had been fully matured and was at the time understood to be in accordance with the views of most of the prominent general officers in command. It had

M., on the extreme right, and entrusted with the defence of the reserve artillery. For a long time it was the only command on the ground. Early on the first of July, General Slocum was placed on my left (Malvern Hill), and in conjunction with him arrangements were made for the defence of our portion of the line. During the day my detachments at Turner's and Long's Bridge, and Jones' Ford, were compelled to withdraw,

General Stoneman had all the railways in his hands, just outside of Richmond. General Slocum had the confidence of his commander, and was thanked by him in orders.

He met a force of the enemy at Averysboroa, and after a severe fight defeated and compelled it to retreat. Our loss in the engagement was about six hundred. The enemy's loss was much greater. On the eighteenth the combined forces of the enemy, under Joe Johnston, attacked his advance at Bentonville, capturing three guns and driving it back upon the main body. General Slocum, who was in the advance, ascertaining that the whole of Johnston's army was in the front, arranged his troops on the defensive, intrenched himself and awaited reinforcements, which were pushed forward. On the night of the twenty-first the enemy retreated to Smithfield, leaving his dead and wounded in our hands. From there Sherman continued to Goldsboroa, which place had been occupied by General Schofield on the 21st (crossing the Neuse river ten miles above there, at Cox's bridge, wher

On the Union side all of the Second brigade, Third division (General Slocum's), except the Seventy-seventh Ohio and two companies First Iowa cavalry, were engaged. On that of the rebels, two brigades of Marmaduke's division. On the afternoon of the second instant, General Steele ordered General Salomon to take and hold this ford. Thereupon General Salomon dispatched the forces referred to under command of Colonel William E. McLean, of the Forty-third Indiana infantry. Colonel McLean made a forced march, arriving at the river after dark, seizing the ford, and crossed his command.
