different system and of other description than those in existence upon the same island when the battle of Secessionville was fought on the 16th of June, 1862. A like radical difference characterized the arrangements made for the defence of John's Island, and aided General Wise to inflict a handsome defeat upon the strong Federal column which was pushed out by that way in February, 1864, to strike and break Beauregard's communications with Savannah, and occupy his attention pending the descen powerful military and political expedition into Florida; and when that skill-fully planned expedition was brought to signal disaster at Olustee, on the 20th February, 1864, it was Colquit's brigade, whose opportune appearance on the field on John's Island had been so effective, which, by its precisely timed arrival, contributed even more decisively to the victory over Seymour. It was under similarly changed or modified dispositions of the defensive resources (material and personnel) of the

. (Signed) G. T. Beauregard. Second dispatch. Charleston, February 11th-11 A. M. To Gen. S. Cooper. Gen. Finnegan's success yesterday was very creditable-the enemy's force being much superior to his own. His reinforcements had not reached here, owing to delays on the road. Losses not yet reported. (Signed) G. T. Beauregard. Repulse of the enemy near Charleston: official dispatch. Charleston, February 12th, 1864. Gen. Wise gallantly repulsed the enemy last evening on John's Island. He is, to-day, in pursuit. Our loss very trifling. The force of the enemy is about 2000; ours about one-half. (Signed) G. T. Beauregard. Every day we recapture some of the escaped Federal officers. So far we have 34 of the 109. The President sent over a confidential sealed letter to the Secretary to-day. I handed it to the Secretary, who was looking pensive..

lmost at the moment of this naval attack on the Federal fleet occurred another incident of note in the operations around Charleston. General Pemberton had caused to be removed from Cole's Island eleven guns of heavy caliber which served to guard the entrance of the Stono River. This barrier removed, the Federal gun-boats had free ingress to the river, and as often as they chose to (lo so plied with impunity as near to Fort Pemberton as safety allowed, harassing our camps on James and John's islands, by the fire of their long-range rifled guns. The Isaac Smith, carrying nine heavy guns, was one of these. Desirous of putting a stop to such incursions, I called the commander of the First Military District [General R. S. Ripley] to a conference at department headquarters, and instructed him at once to organize an expedition and have masked batteries erected at designated points on the banks of the Stono, near where the Federal gunboat habitually passed and occasionally remained overn

er. On the 21st of August following, Davis issued an order at Richmond, directing that Generals Hunter and Phelps (see page 225, volume II.) should no longer be held and treated as public enemies of the Confederate States, but as outlaws. Such fulminations of the chief Conspirator, who was always ready to raise the black flag when he thought it safe to do so, were quite common during the earlier years of the war. At about that time measures were perfected for seizing Wadmelaw and John's Islands, that the National troops might gain a position within cannon-shot of Charleston. Careful reconnoissances had been made, soundings taken, and the channel of Stono River, which separates the islands of John's and James's, had been carefully marked by buoys. Every thing was in readiness for an advance toward the middle of May, 1863. when that movement was hastened by information given respecting military-affairs at Charleston by an intelligent slave, named Robert Small, the pilot of the

party had gained or lost much. Very little occurred in South Carolina during the year 1864 that affected the final result of the struggle. All through the year, there was occasional shelling of Charleston, at long range, from Morris Island, with very little effect. In May and June, as we have observed, Gillmore was on the James River, and all was quiet around Charleston. At the beginning of July, the four brigades of Birney, Saxton, Hatch, and Schimmelfennig, were concentrated on John's Island, and, with a gun-boat on the North Edisto, made some demonstrations against Confederate works there, but with no advantageous result. The Twenty-sixth United States negro troops, Colonel Silliman, were sent to take a Confederate battery, three miles northwest of Legareville. They had no cannon, and were only six hundred strong. They made five desperate charges, and lost ninety-seven men killed and wounded. They were driven off, with the loss of their commander, prostrated by sun-str

te troops that were out to receive them, and the gun-boats and Monitors opened on such forts as they were directed Commander (now Rear-Admiral) George H. Cooper. to fire upon; but there was no success in the attack. The Federal troops failed to capture any of the enemy's batteries; and after one or two days spent in desultory fighting, it was decided that the enemy were in too strong force, that further efforts would not be profitable, and therefore the troops should be withdrawn from John's Island. These operations lasted about six days, during which there was a good deal of hard work and the usual display of gallantry on the part of the Navy, under the guns of which the Army safely re embarked. Rear-Admiral Dahlgren speaks handsomely of his staff, and particularly mentions the services of Commander Balch and Lieutenant-Commanders Semmes, Fillebrown, A. W. Johnson, R. L. Phythian, and Acting-Masters Phinney and Furber. This was about the last operation of any importance t
11. taken quiet possession of Edisto island on our right, carrying our flag more than half way from Beaufort to Charleston. No inhabitants were left on Edisto but negroes; and the cotton which the departing Whites could not remove they had, for the most part, burned. The fall of Pulaski, soon afterward, gave us extension and security on the other flank; and now Gen. Hunter and Com. Dupont proposed to extend our possession still farther toward the city by the reclamation of Wadmilaw and Johns islands, bringing us within cannon-shot of Charleston. To this end, various and careful reconnoissances were made, and soundings taken; ending with making by buoys the channel of Stono river, separating Johns from Janes island; whereupon, our gunboats Unadilla, Pembina, and Ottawa, crossed May 20. the bar at its mouth and proceeded up that river: the Rebel earthworks along its banks being abandoned at their approach. Thus the gunboats made their way slowly, carefully, up to a point within r

h its casualties were not among the largest, it made a splendid record for discipline and efficiency. The 77th New York was also a fighting regiment, and sustained a loss in officers above that of the average. The loss of officers in its brigade (7th Me., 43d N. Y., 49th N. Y., 77th N. Y., and 61st Pa.) was without a parallel in the war, the five regiments losing 72 officers killed in action. The 144th sustained its loss in killed in the battles along the South Carolina coast,--at John's Island, James Island, Siege of Wagner, Deveaux Neck, and Honey Hill, half of its loss occurring in the latter battle. The 141st New York encountered its hardest fighting and severest losses at Resaca and Peach Tree Creek. The following regiments failed to complete their organizations, and their numbers are accordingly vacant: the 17th Cavalry; 11th and 12th Heavy Artillery; 166th, 167th, 171st, 172d, 180th, 181st, and 183d Infantry.
