enchments. On the night of the 11th of May instructions were received from General Butler for a movement at daybreak of the 12th in the direction of Richmond. The two white divisions of the Eighteenth Corps, with the exception of the force necessary to leave in the lines, reinforced by a division of the Tenth Corps, were to move out on the turnpike. General Gillmore, with the remainder of his command, was to hold the road from Petersburg. As soon as the Eighteenth Corps had passed Chester Station on the railroad, General Kautz was to move with his cavalry on the Danville road, destroying as much as possible of it. The colored division under General Hinks was to move up from City Point to Point of Rocks on the right bank of the Appomattox. The movement began shortly after daylight on the 12th, and General Weitzel in the advance on the turnpike began skirmishing shortly after leaving our lines, and steadily advanced until Red House or Red Water Creek was reached, when two pieces

troy as much of it as possible. General Smith was to endeavor to reach the railroad bridge over Swift Creek, supported by General Gillmore on the left toward Chester Station. It was found quite impossible to discover any ford to cross the creek, and the railroad bridge was strongly held by the enemy with intrenched artillery. as the result of a conference between them, whether it would not be better to withdraw our forces to our lines, destroying all that part of the road north of Chester Station, and then cross the Appomattox on a pontoon bridge and cut all the roads, entering Petersburg on that side. See Appendix No. 40. To that letter I at once Smith] is forced back. General Kautz has orders to proceed as soon as the demonstration of General Smith's troops has masked his movements from, at, or near Chester Station, to make demonstrations upon the Danville railroad for the purpose of cutting it. It is intended to develop [by this movement] the entire strength of the enem

Butler, Commanding Department of Virginia and North Carolina: General:--We have conferred together upon the problem before us, and respectfully suggest for your consideration, whether it would not be better, and secure to us greater advantages, to withdraw to our lines to-night, destroying all that part of the road this side of Chester Station which we left to-day, and then cross the Appomattox on a pontoon bridge, that can be thrown across below General Smith's headquarters, and cut all the roads which come into Petersburg on that side. Such a bridge can readily be constructed in one night, and all the work of cutting the road, and, perhaps, capturing the city, can be accomplished in one day, without involving us in heavy losses. If we should remain here and be successful to-morrow, the roads coming into Petersburg on that

, if possible, force him to advance; and that I should make my way as rapidly as possible around the lines and report the situation to you. General Dearing, who was in command of the cavalry forces, undertook to force a way for me through Chester Station, so as to avoid the detour around by Chesterfield Court-house. He met with the enemy's pickets at Chester, and they were driven in by a gallant charge of General Dearing, who forced them back as far as the Half-way Station, and captured bet. And so. Va., June 16th, 1864. Major-General R. F. Hoke, Comdg. Division on Pike: General,—I am instructed by the Commanding General to acknowledge the receipt of your telegram, and to say that railroad transportation has been ordered to Chester Station for your command. It is probable that you can march to Petersburg earlier by highway. If you are of this opinion you will move by the pike direct to Petersburg, as instructed by telegraph. The utmost despatch is required. Respectfully,
cannon in the rebel intrenchments, only ceased with the coming of night. The good news from Grant, read to the troops to-night, called forth cheers that must have awakened the echoes of Richmond, and elicited from the rebels a few parting shots of spite. We will settle that score with them to-morrow, however. Wednesday night orders were issued to General Smith to move with five brigades at daylight, and occupy a position at right angles with the Richmond and Petersburg pike, above Chester station. As General Smith occupied our left, this necessitated a march across the right. General Gillmore was directed to leave sufficient force in the intrenchments, and to move with the rest of his command to the junction of the railroad with the Richmond and Petersburg pike. This was to prevent the forces said to be in Petersburg from moving up the pike to Richmond. The first object of the move was to mask a cavalry raid by General Kautz, for the purpose of cutting the Danville railroad,
