the river, and assisting the Army of the Potomac in taking possession of their positions. Preparations were accordingly made to send four thousand of Hooker's division for the purpose. The Navy Department furnished transportation, and Captain Craven, the commander of the flotilla, gathered his vessels in the vicinity of Matthias Point, to co-operate in an attack on the batteries there. In the mean time the chief engineer (Major Barnard) reported adversely, He referred to the fact that High Point, Freestone Point, and Cock-pit Point, and thence down to Chapawausic Creek, opposite Hooker's quarters at Budd's Ferry, were eligible places for batteries, and considered it unwise to attempt the capture of any already completed, unless a campaign was about to be opened in that direction. He concluded that the best way to prevent the erection of batteries, and to keep open navigation, was to have a sufficient naval force patrolling the Potomac. See McClellan's Report, page 50.

movement of your forces on Bethel. G. T. Beauregard. Brigade headquarters, Iuka, Miss., March 16, 1862. Col. R. F. Looney, Eastport: Colonel: I am directed by Brigadier-General Chalmers to instruct you to send all your cavalry, except so many as may be needed for couriers, down to Yellow Creek, to observe the movements of the enemy and harass and check them in any attempt to cross that stream should they land below it. You will also select a spot on the road leading to Eastport from Yellow Creek suitable for an ambuscade, and when you are informed that they have started toward you you will at once take position at that place, and hold them in check until you can send information here and be re-enforced. Lieutenant-Colonel Golladay has orders to march to-night with the Alabama Battalion to aid you. I am, very respectfully, Henry Craft, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General. Hdqrs.

comprising about eighty thousand men, was at Manassas and Centreville. At these points the positions were naturally very strong, with impassable streams and broken ground, affording ample protection to their flanks, and with lines of intrenchment sweeping all the available approaches. The right was at Brooks's Station, Dumfries, Lower Occoquan and vicinity, numbering about eighteen thousand. This wing of the army formed a support to several batteries on the Lower Potomac, extending from High Point and Cockpit Point to the Chopawampsic Creek. These batteries, greatly obstructing the navigation of the river, and to this extent practically blockading Washington, were a source of great annoyance to the Administration and of mortification to the people, and a strong desire was felt that a movement should be made to destroy them; but General McClellan was of the opinion that such an attempt would be attended with danger, and that the destruction of these batteries by our army would affor

nty, N. C., March 10, and the writer says: We have got the Raleigh Register here, and it says the Northern and Southern Congresses are both trying for peace, and that Col. Charles C. Lee has orders not to pay any more fifty dollar bounty to regulars until further orders. I also heard a man belonging to the cavalry say yesterday, that he believed by the first of July, two thirds of the Southern people would be back in the Union, and peace would be made. There are plenty of Yankees here. We have two bridges to guard, and they have both been set on fire, but the guard discovered it in time to prevent damage. Seven Yankees were arrested near here, yesterday, and several others were taken this morning. Our troops also had a little brush near High Point, and killed eight and took forty Union men prisoners. If peace can't be made shortly, I think we will be the worst whipped men you ever saw, for I see no chance for us to whip the Yankees. Drafting has been going on here.
egard's immediate answer was: Will await here arrival of President. Road between this place and Danville safe. Raiders are at or near Salem. He then without delay telegraphed General Ferguson to hurry up with his cavalry brigade, from High Point, as fast as he could. The need of cavalry was greatly felt at that hour, not only to oppose the enemy, but to obtain trustworthy information. General Beauregard had mostly to depend for the latter on the scouting parties, organized by him outfety of Greensboroa. The necessity for such a movement was all the more urgent because, on the morning of that day (11th), the raiding cavalry had cut the Danville road, about twelve miles above Greensboroa, and had arrived in the afternoon at High Point and Jamestown, on the Salisbury road. The damage done, however, was not great, and could easily be repaired. Acting under the powers given him by General Lee, in his despatch of April 1st, already referred to, General Beauregard was now iss

y county of the State vied with one another in raising troops, and many of those not actually going to the field were as busy helping as those going. Instead of getting one-third, the writer believes that fully two-thirds of those liable to service volunteered under this call. In all, twenty-eight regiments and several battalions promptly volunteered. The adjutant-general's office was daily crowded by men offering companies for service. The Eleventh regiment (Bethel) was reorganized at High Point; the Fortysec-ond (Col. G. C. Gibbs), at Salisbury, April 22d; and at Camp Mangum, near Raleigh, were organized the Forty-third (Col. T. S. Kenan), the Forty-fourth (Col. G. B. Singeltary), the Forty-fifth (Col. Junius Daniel), the Forty-sixth (Col. E. D. Hall), the Forty-seventh (Col. S. H. Rogers), the Forty-eighth (Col. R. C.

y, Hart's battery, and as a part of the Stuart horse artillery, was finally surrendered at High Point, N. C., with its numbers reduced to 105 men, under the name of Halsey's battery. On February 22lina they participated in the battles of Kinston and Bentonville, and when surrendered at High Point, N. C., he was first lieutenant. Captain Irby was a modest man and brave. His character is exemuth Carolina, called the Butler Riflemen, and served as a private until his surrender near High Point, N. C., April 26, 1865, he being included in the surrender of Johnston at Greensboro, when just nng the march through the Carolinas; and in the performance of this duty was surrendered at High Point, N. C., at the close of the war. Returning then to Charleston, he was associated with his father ston's army he was in command of and surrendered the remnant of Butler's brigade of cavalry at High Point, and after receiving the paroles, marched his command under arms and with colors flying to Uni

It did not take part in the worst of the fight at Franklin, November 30th, but at Nashville, December 15th and 16th, it was almost annihilated. Going into the Carolinas it fought at Kinston, March 14, 1865, and at Bentonville, March 19th. Consolidated with the Twenty-fourth and Twenty-eighth, it was surrendered at High Point, not more than 100 men being left of the regiment that started out on that bright spring morning, three years before, with overflowing ranks. Lieut.-Col. John N. Slaughter and Capt. John S. Burch were wounded at Atlanta; Capts. R. G. Welch at Chickamauga, W. G. Oliver at Jonesboro, W. H. Holstein, J. Maury Smith and Jno. R.
