Doc. 59.-battle of Tranter's Creek, N. C. Fought June 5, 1862. A correspondent of the Philadelphia Inquirer, writing from Washington, N. C.; June sixth, gives the following particulars of the battle at that place: Since the rebel citizens ofhe troops out, and if possible, find and dislodge the enemy, who were reported to be in strong force near and beyond Tranter's Creek. The gunboat Picket, Capt. Nichols, was detailed to take part in the movement, and proceeded up the Tar River, sheltown through a drenching rain at nine o'clock P. M. The following is a list of killed and wounded in the fight at Tranter's Creek: Twenty-Fourth Massachusetts. Sergeant George L. Litchfield, Co. A, Roxbury, Mass., killed; Private Leroy Dorlarners without any incident of note occurring, and without the slightest trace of the enemy. We were now a mile from Tranter's Creek, and as it was known that the bridge on the main or Greenville road had been destroyed, the column took another road
certain fly-trap contrivances made by the rebels on the Greenville road, for the purpose of catching my mounted patrols whenever they should venture beyond their usual limit of four miles, I made yesterday a reconnoissance with my company to Tranter's Creek, a distance of eight miles, where they were said to have a large force on each side of the stream. I advanced cautiously, with my advance-guard dismounted and acting as skirmishers, but could discover no signs of the presence of an enemy un sawed off, and a breastwork of logs and lumber constructed on the other side; but, as I said before, no indications of the presence of rebel troops could be found. I mention these little particulars merely to show that our late battle at Tranter's Creek has had a salutary effect on the enemy, and that we shall probably not be molested here for some time to come. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, G. F. Jocknick, Captain Commanding Company I, Third New-York Cavalry. First Lieutena
