wo brigades, under General M. L. Smith, to Holly Springs, in the belief that I could better protectHatchie from Corinth, and was destined for Holly Springs, ordering me to cooperate as far as advisahed to the Coldwater, within four miles of Holly Springs. We encountered only small detachments ofd Pierson, and drove them into and through Holly Springs; but they hung about, and I kept an infantry brigade in Holly Springs to keep them out. I heard nothing from General Hamilton till the 5th of that he had been within nineteen miles of Holly Springs and had turned back for Corinth; and on thourier from Moscow, not to attempt to hold Holly Springs, but to fall back and protect the railroad the river, and was collected at and about Holly Springs, where, reenforced by Armstrong's and Forreatedly sent out strong detachments toward Holly Springs, which was his main depot of supply; and Gterly ruined; as it was, Van Dorn regained Holly Springs somewhat demoralized.

We reached Wyatt on the 2d day of December without threcord. While General Van Dorn had his headquarters in Holly Springs, viz., in October, 1862, he was very short of the comfo General Grant was not coming at all; that his depot at Holly Springs had been captured by Van Dorn, and that he had drawn back from Coffeeville and Oxford to Holly Springs and Lagrange; and, further, that Quimby's division of Grant's army was actual.

rtially to induce General Grant to call on General McClernand for a similar expression of opinion, but, so far as I know, he did not. lie went on quietly to work out his own designs; and he has told me, since the war, that had we possessed in December, 1862, tie experience of marching and maintaining armies without a regular base, which we afterward acquired, he would have gone on from Oxford as first contemplated, and would not have turned back because of the destruction of his depot at Holly Springs by Van Dorn. The distance from Oxford to the rear of Vicksburg is little greater than by the circuitous route we afterward followed, from Bruinsburg to Jackson and Vicksburg, during which we had neither depot nor train of supplies. I have never criticised General Grant's strategy on this or any other occasion, but I thought then that he had lost an opportunity, which cost him and us six months extra-hard work, for we might have captured Vicksburg from the direction of Oxford in January

ng. 2. The right wing, Major-General Howard commanding, will move out on the Chapel Hill road, and send a light division up in the direction of Chapel Hill University to act in connection with the cavalry; but the main columns and trains will move via Hackney's Cross-Roads, and Trader's Hill, Pittsboroa, St. Lawrence, etc., to be followed by the cavalry and light division, as soon as the bridge is laid over Haw River. 3. The centre, Major-General Schofield commanding, will move via Holly Springs, New Hill, Haywood, and Moffitt's Mills. 4. The left wing, Major-General Slocum commanding, will move rapidly by the Aven's Ferry road, Carthage, Caledonia, and Cox's Mills. 5. All the troops will draw well out on the roads designated during today and to-morrow, and on the following day will move with all possible rapidity for Ashboroa. No further destruction of railroads, mills, cotton, and produce, will be made without the specific orders of an army commander, and the inhabitant
had never faltered in their faith, but who now look upon their cause as past the remotest chance of a resurrection, and are adapting themselves to their new and changed circumstances. They say that if the South could not defend Corinth, they cannot hold their ground at any other point, and it is idle to prolong a war which is desolating twelve States. On Tuesday, twenty-seventh, an intelligent deserter came into camp, and on being questioned stated that Gen. Beauregard had been at Holly Springs, Miss., for several days, recruiting his health, as he alleged, but that he returned at nine o'clock that morning. The story, except as to the health, was a true one, as I have since ascertained; and I also learn that the masses of the people and the soldiers, really supposed he was there recuperating, he having given out to that impression. But the fact was, he was searching for a place to which to make retreat, and on his return he called a council of war on Tuesday evening, and announce
the fugitives have been followed. Suffice it that they have been scattered and demoralized, and that they are not likely to gather head again before Christmas. If General Rosecrans is permitted to exercise his energy, they will not be permitted to concentrate anywhere. It may be worth while to mention that the facts go to show that the enemy attacked Corinth with fully forty-five thousand men. Villipigue certainly joined Van Dorn Friday evening, and was in the rout. He came up from Holly Springs. Breckinridge was not in the fight. The loss of rebel officers was as heavy as our own, proportionally. Among the prominent rebels who were killed were Colonel Rogers, of Texas, acting Brigadier; Colonel Johnston, of Arkansas, acting Brigadier, supposed to be Herschel V. Johnston; Col. Martin, commanding Fourth brigade, First division; Major Jones, Twentieth Arkansas. Of the wounded were Colonel Pritchard, Third Missouri; Colonel Daily, Eighteenth Arkansas; Col. McClain, Thirty-seven
Rebel report of the battle. Grenada appeal account. Holly Springs, Miss., Sunday, Oct. 12, 1862. I am enabled at last to give you a tolerably detailed, and at least truthful account of the late fight at Corinth, so far as the first division of the Army of the Mississippi, under Gen. Lovell, is concerned. I deeply regret that I am not in possession of all the facts which would exhibit the share taken by those brave and tried men under the much-loved Price. You will remember that loss in Gen. Lovell's division, killed and wounded, is three hundred and eighty. Men never fought more gallantly, nor more willingly, and I am pleased to say that as far as my observation extends, old prejudices among them have been effaced. Holly Springs, Tuesday, October 14. Two thousand one hundred of Rosecrans's wounded have arrived at Jackson, Tenn., and one thousand one hundred at Bolivar. A large number still at Corinth. Nearly all their dead buried by us were breast-plated. ra
nions deserted. Colonel Mizener, with a brigade of cavalry, attempted to intercept the enemy, between La Fayette and Holly Springs, but they had too much start, and the attempt failed. At this date, Forrest, Lee, Chalmers, and Richardson are in Nonstant, at ten o'clock in the forenoon, the force sent from Collierville to intercept the enemy before he could reach Holly Springs, arrived at Mount Pleasant, where it was learned that the rear-guard of the rebels had, a few hours before, passed soit was continued, but necessarily with caution, as Forrest's force was known to be yet superior to ours. When near Holly Springs, reliable information was brought in that the enemy's main column, reenforced by Ferguson's division, had left the Taylor plantation, twelve miles west from Holly Springs, and were yet moving south, having ten hours start of us. The pursuit was here abandoned, and our column, tired out by nearly two weeks of unceasing active service, turned back, and moved by eas
ained may be briefly summed up. On November second, Gen. Mansfield Lovell, in command at Coldwater, fell back through Holly Springs. Gen. Pemberton coming up from the capital of Mississippi, on the fifth, stopped him, and ordered that Coldwater shoud Donelson. Attached to this force are six four-gun batteries. Price lay with twelve thousand men seven miles below Holly Springs, on the Salem road, while twenty-two miles further south, at Abbeysville, were some thirteen thousand militia, or cong at Vicksburgh, thanks to those who permit crossing to be done at that point. Three weeks ago Gen. Armstrong left Holly Springs with seven thousand men on his way to Port Hudson, a point above Baton Rouge, which is being strongly fortified. He eft Holly Springs with seven thousand men on his way to Port Hudson, a point above Baton Rouge, which is being strongly fortified. He has since resigned. Van Dorn is now at Holly Springs under arrest, and is succeeded, as you know, by Pemberton.
Doc. 55.-advance on Holly Springs, Miss. camp near Waterford, Miss., November 30, 1862. Day before yesterday morning we took up our line of march from Davis's Mills to Holly Springs. The weather, which up to the time of our departure had-ninth,) the advance of the Federal army passed through Holly Springs. No halt was made there, but all day Saturday, and allof the town as the head of Ross's entered the north. Holly Springs is the handsomest place we have seen yet on our southwal from a large stock of tobacco which he had brought to Holly Springs to supply the rebel army. I was informed on good autParrott guns, was far in the advance ever since we left Holly Springs, and his advance was one continued skirmish along the whole distance from Holly Springs to where he now is, within two miles of the Tallahatchie.
