m as an adviser. In proof of this we quote from President Davis's letter to General Hood, dated September 28th, from Opelika, Ala.: * * *It seems to me best that I should confer with General Beauregard, and, if quite acceptable to him, placffered General Beauregard his most cordial support. A few days afterwards, the following telegram was forwarded from Opelika, Ala., to Mr. Davis: Opelika, Ala., Oct. 7th, 1864. To President Davis, Richmond: I have arranged, satisfactorilyOpelika, Ala., Oct. 7th, 1864. To President Davis, Richmond: I have arranged, satisfactorily, matters between Governor Brown and General Cobb relating to exempts and State militia. Am now en route for Hood's front. G. T. Beauregard. From Milledgeville, General Beauregard had to travel via Macon, Columbus, Opelika, and Newnan, to get Opelika, and Newnan, to get to General Hood's headquarters, as the latter had already left Palmetto to operate against the railroad from Atlanta to Marietta. The Opelika and Atlanta Railroad, from Fairburn to the latter place, was in the possession of the Federals, and Newnan
ces to check Sherman's advance, he caused the following letter to be sent to General E. K. Smith, in order to give him all possible facilities for successfully executing the transfer of his troops to the eastern side of the Mississippi: Headquarters, Military division of the West, Montgomery, Dec. 3d, 1864. To General E. Kirby Smith, Comdg. Trans-Miss. Dept.: General,—I am this day in receipt of telegram from General Beauregard (who is now en route to the Atlantic coast), dated Opelika, Ala., Dec. 3d, in which he directs that I recommend for your favorable consideration that detached floating booms, armed with torpedoes, in addition to light batteries on shore, be placed in the Mississippi River, to prevent the enemy's gunboats from passing or offering annoyance at the point that you may select for the transfer of troops to this side, should you deem it expedient to make such transfer. These booms should be triangular in shape, about 40 feet in length by about 20 feet ba
he deemed essential to further military operations. But General Gilmer was of a different opinion, and the War Department, therefore, paid no attention to General Beauregard's suggestion. He likewise appealed to Governors Brown (of Georgia) and Clark (of Mississippi), strongly advising them to use the militia of their respective States, and all other means in their power, to secure the return of deserters and absentees to their commands. To Brigadier-General Mackall, as He passed through Opelika, he gave specific orders concerning Palmer's battalion and the impressment of horses for the artillery on its way to the east. Truly may it be said that, during these trying weeks of depression and anxiety, his presence being called for, simultaneously, at almost every point, he displayed unfailing energy and forethought, spoke words of comfort to the depressed —whose number increased with every additional reverse—and never allowed the minutest details of his multitudinous duties to escape
for Selma to-day, the Montgomery road being washed away. I can send no troops from Mobile, unless I abandon that place entirely, the garrison there being already inadequate. Have ordered Clanton's command, of less than one thousand cavalry, to Opelika, which comprises all I have except reserves and force at Mobile. General Cobb telegraphs the enemy would probably reach Macon on 20th. I cannot possibly reach there in time; General Hardee probably can. I will be at Meridian to-morrow morning, Telegram. Macon, Miss., Jan. 30th, 1865. Col. G. W. Brent: Am corresponding with General Taylor as to the means of carrying out the recommendations of General Beauregard about militia. Chas. Clark, Gov. of Miss. Telegram. Opelika, Ala., Jan. 30th, 1865. To Brig.-Genl. Mackall, Macon, Ga.: Hold Palmer's battalion in readiness to move on General D. H. Hill's order. General Beauregard desires that you will procure one hundred and fifty horses for the artillery now en rout
