ge, as we would probably attempt to cross it. General Thomas at once clad one of his spies in rebel uniform, instructed our pickets to fire at him (over his head, of course), and sent him through the lines with a despatch to Joe Johnston that he (Taylor) had done so with a loss to us of two thousand or so, and many prisoners. It was a cruel joke upon the rebel, and procured for the spy, besides, access to valuable information from pretty high rebel sources. The army then marched quietly on towof the Sixty-fourth Illinois, and Captain McRae, Sixty-sixth Indiana, were severely wounded. On the morning of the thirtieth, also, a stray shot from a skirmisher slightly grazed General Logan on the left arm, and entered the right breast of Colonel Taylor, chief of artillery to General McPherson, inflicting a very painful wound, though it is thought he will recover. There have thus occurred, since the opening of the campaign south of the Etowah River, up to the evening of the twenty-eighth,
here was from the enemy's artillery with canister. Our artillery did not come up until next day, nearly twenty-four hours after the fight; my front lines maintained their positions at the line of these pits, and fortified during the night. Colonel Taylor's brigade soon came into position on my left. The loss in my command during these two last days was ninety killed and wounded; among the latter were: Captain Brinton, my A. A. A. G., severe wound in arm, Major Phillips, Seventy-seventh Pennsylvania, arm off; Captain Fellows and Captain Taylor of the Eighty-fourth Indiana; all fell bravely at their posts. September 3.--No change in position to-day, but much firing at each other's lines, with some casualties, which remained so until the morning of September fifth. When twenty-six miles east of south of Atlanta, in front of Lovejoy, a station on the Macon railroad, and seventy-five miles from the latter place, orders were received announcing that the campaign had ended, and that t
ed him, capturing two hundred and ten prisoners and four pieces of artillery. On the twenty-eighth he again attacked and defeated the enemy under the rebel General Taylor, at Cane river. By the twenty-sixth General Banks had assembled his whole army at Alexandria, and pushed forward to Grand Ecore. On the morning of April sixeneral G. H. Thomas. Thus it will be seen that in March, 1865, General Canby was moving an adequate force against Mobile and the army defending it under General Dick Taylor; Thomas was pushing out two large and well-appointed cavalry expeditions-one from Middle Tennessee under Brevet Major-General Wilson against the enemy's vitJeff. Davis was trying to make his escape, sent forces in pursuit and succeeded in capturing him on the morning of May eleventh. On the fourth day of May General Dick Taylor surrendered to General Canby all the remaining rebel forces east of the Mississippi. A force sufficient to ensure an easy triumph over the enemy under Ki
ndred men, drove them, and killed four and wounded six of the enemy, without a single accident happening to his men. The battalion lost during the expedition one private killed, Captain Guinn and Lieutenant Spirr and six privates wounded, and three men missing. Seventeenth. Lieutenant Williams, Third Arkansas cavalry, returned to Lewisburg from scout to Norristown, Dover, &c., having killed three bushwhackers and two horses on the Arkansas river, below Norristown. Twenty-second. Captain Taylor, Third Arkansas cavalry, returned to Lewisburg from scout to Red river, having killed four of the enemy. Major L. H. Thacher, Ninth Kansas cavalry, while on a scout fifteen miles north-west of Pine Bluff, surprised the camp of Captain Lightfoot, of Cabell's command, wounding one man, capturing two horses, three guns, and a large amount of provisions and medical stores, which he destroyed. Twenty-fourth. Lieutenant Reynolds, Third Arkansas cavalry volunteers, returned to Lewisburg
res and commissary stores for Hood's army. From Verona the command moved south along the line of the road, destroying it thoroughly to a point between Egypt and Prairie stations. At Okolono telegrams were taken from the wires from Lieutenant-General Taylor and Major-General Gardner, ordering Egypt to be held at all hazards, and promising reinforcements from Mobile and other points. On the morning of the twenty-eighth the enemy was attacked at Egypt. General Grierson reports them abouton, fifty-six miles from Boonville, where it was first struck. The enemy had concentrated a considerable force at Okolono, which, upon our approach, fell back to Egypt. Having tapped the wire at Okolono and intercepted despatches from Lieutenant-General Taylor and others, indicating that reinforcements would be sent from Mobile and other points, and learning from deserters who came in on the night of the twenty seventh, that the reinforcements would not be likely to arrive before eleven o'clo

There remained in Central Mississippi, under General Taylor, but one corps of the enemy's infantry, and about seven thousand of Forrest's cavalry, the headquarters of the command being at Meridian, Mississippi. On turing many prisoners. In the darkness and confusion following the assault Generals Forrest, Buford, Adams, Armstrong, and others, made their escape. Lieutenant-General Dick Taylor had left earlier in the afternoon. As the fruits of the victory, however, there remained twenty-six guns and two thousand seven hundred prisoners, be being given to grant all such no quarter. On the seventh of May notification was received by me, via Eastport and Meridian, Mississippi, of the surrender of General Taylor's army to General Canby, at Citronnella, Alabama, on the fourth. No armed force of the enemy east of the Mississippi remaining to interfere, I gave orders fo
one officer and sixteen men in the enemy's hands, either killed or wounded. In this charge Captain Taylor, Seventeenth Indiana, lost his life, after having led his men into the very midst of the ene in Alabama and Georgia, as well as the means of transporting the same, to both the armies under Taylor and Johnson, was an irreparable blow to the rebel cause. The railways converging at Atlanta, aney were forced to turn to the left and cut their way out, resulting in the loss, however, of Captain Taylor and sixteen men, who charged through and were either killed or fell into the enemy's hands. charging on the enemy there, and cutting his way out with his command, with the exception of Captain Taylor and sixteen enlisted men. The captain had command of the advance company ( G ), and did not risoners, and large quantity of stores, besides all the iron works north of here.

The horse batteries B and L, Second Artillery, U. S. A. (Lieutenant Taylor commanding), was left on the right fighting on the infantry line, where it did admirable service, and was the last artillery to leave the front. Too much praise cannot be given to the officers and men of this battery, for their coolness ear of cavalry than they did upon this occasion. The service of the cavalry on this day to the army and the country can never be too highly appreciated. The Horse artillery, Companies K and L, of the First United States, commanded by First Lieutenant Taylor, Companies B and L, Second United States, commanded by First Lieutenant Pierce, Company C, Fifth United States, commanded by First Lieutenant Wier, and Captain Martin's battery of the Sixth New York, rendered invaluable services on this
