Skirmish in North Carolina. --On the 27th ult., a Federal force of 500 infantry, with cavalry and artillery, attempted to cross White Oak river, in Onslow county, N. C. They were met by 125 of our cavalry, commanded by Capt. E. D. Ward. The Wilmington Journal says: The fight lasted about three hours, when Captain Ward fell back a short distance out of the range of their artillery. They continued to shell the woods until near dark, when they fell back. In the engagement we had one man, Sergeant Williams, of the Gatlin Dragoons, wounded in both legs, and one horse wounded by the bursting of a shell. Captain Ward learns from citizens along the line of the enemy's retreat, that we killed two dead on the spot, wounded eleven badly, and several more slightly.--Among those badly was their Colonel, who was shot from his horse. They curse our "two-barrelled cavalry," and say they want shot guns, too. They fell back about seven miles, to Mrs. Bryan's, where they met more of the
the slaves of Generals Pillow and Bondman, of the Confederate army. Several Federal steamers had gone up the St. Francis river and dispersed several bodies of guerrillas. A guerrilla attack was made upon the Federal force at Newark, Mo, consisting of 75 State troops, who were overpowered by numbers and captured. Another guerrilla attack was successful in the capture of Alexandria, the party retiring with plunder. Advices from Newbern, N. C., report a skirmish at the head of White Oak river, between a Federal force under Col. Hickman, of the 9th New Jersey regiment, and a party of Confederates, resulting in the rout of the latter. A large war mass meeting was held in Washington yesterday afternoon, at the east front of the Capitol, the Mayor of the city presiding, with thirty-four Vice Presidents and twenty-two Secretaries.--President Lincoln was present and made a speech, in which he said there was no precedent for his appearance on the present occasion, but it was a
The Daily Dispatch: March 11, 1863., [Electronic resource], The second advance of the enemy in North Carolina. (search)
The second advance of the enemy in North Carolina. The second advance of the Yankees in North Carolina has resulted as the first did, in their repulse. The skirmish took place below Kinston, on Friday. The enemy, it is said, lost several killed and wounded, but it is not known how many. The enemy on Saturday--in what force it is not known — were at White Oak river, on the Onslow line, below Trenton, and about 21 or 22 miles from Newbern. There are none known to be between Trenton and Kinston. The entire force at Newbern is thought to be thirteen or fourteen regiments, probably not more than 5,000 to 6,000 effective men. We hardly think that an advance with such a force is much to be treaded.
Such a thing was only of weekly recurrence at Sebastopol. On the 30th, I let the rebel Jackson and D. H. Hill take a thousand of my men, on the road to White Oak river. Some five hundred mules were also turned over to the rebel Col. Munford, to add to the difficulties of the forage question with the enemy. Finding that the rebels Jackson and Hill were close behind me, I tore up the bridge at White Oak river and resolved to give them battle at long taw. This is a popular mode of fighting with my men, when their long-range guns are out of reach of the balls of the enemy. But, while we were having a fine time at our favorite game at White Oak river, tWhite Oak river, the everlasting Longstreet and A. P. Hill struck me in flank and killed and captured a great number of my men. My great master, General Scott, could not stand a fire in the rear and front, nor could I be expected to stand a fire in flank and rear. I therefore fell back and tolled the rebels on. None of the Generals at Sebastopol ac
