J. B. Jones, A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, XXXIII. December, 1863 (search)
t. I differed with him, and maintained if a proper distribution were made there would be enough for all. To-morrow Congress assembles. It is to be apprehended that a conflict with the Executive will ensue-instead of unanimity against the common enemy-and no one living can foretell the issue, because no one knows the extent of capacity and courage on either side. The President has made his cabinet a unit. December 7 Cold and clear. Gen. Longstreet telegraphs to-day from Rutledge, Tenn., some fifty miles northeast of Knoxville, and says he will soon need railroad facilities. He is flying from superior numbers, and may be gathering up supplies. Governor Vance writes distressfully concerning the scarcity of provisions in certain counties of North Carolina, and the rudeness of impressing agents. Lieut.-Gen. Hardee telegraphs from Dalton that 5000 cavalry, besides two brigades of Buckner's command, are with Longstreet, and that other troops ought to be sent him (
a fine of not more than twenty thousand dollars, nor less than five hundred, and be imprisoned not less than three months, nor more than three years, at the discretion of the court; and it was declared the duty of the judges of the several confederate courts to give the act specially in charge to the grand-jury: Provided, that the purchase of postage-stamps should not be considered a violation of the act. The rebel forces, under General Longstreet, still remained in the neighborhood of Rutledge and Morristown, Tenn. General Longstreet was unable to follow up his advantage in consequence of the large number of bare-footed men in his command. The weather was extremely cold, and the mountains covered with snow. A party belonging to the rebel Colonel Harrison's guerrilla band, headed by James Cavalier, entered Omega, La., and after capturing twelve or fourteen negroes, proceeded to murder them in cold blood, after which they hurried away upon mules captured in the town.--in disc

nter. Hence the theological propriety of using a saw. 'Tis a Mississippi invention, and all honor to the gallant State which introduced it! Well, they were rather hard on the boy! The neighbors closed their windows that they might not hear his cries. The women whimpered — as the women will — till the owner of the stable stopped the proceedings, probably being ashamed to have them noticed by his horses. The trader was disgusted, and carried Anthony off to have his polishing completed in Rutledge. The slave went into fits, but for all these, he was taken to a jail and the whippings were renewed. The sheriff interfered. The stony-hearted jailer interfered. So the whipper was compelled to break off, and Anthony after waiting a week to be healed, returned-by a singular coincidence — upon a Sabbath evening to his home. Now it is quite a remarkable fact, that in the opinion of the neighbors, all this labor of the trader was ill-expended, and that Boy No. 2 knew nothing of Boy No. <
We moved but about a mile to-day. December seventh, moved several miles past where we were encamped on the eighth of October. December eighth, moved on to Rutledge, county-seat of Grainger County. December ninth, passed through Rutledge and on to Bean's Station. Here our regiment was sent out on the Morristown road to tRutledge and on to Bean's Station.

December tenth, remained at the station. December eleventh, Colonel Pennebaker, with our brigade, went to Morristown. Made no attack on the enemy, as he was about a mile east of town. We return managed to get a battery on the mountains on our right, and about sundown began to hand down a few shells. After dark we commenced falling back; passed through Rutledge. December sixteenth, fell back to Blain's Cross-Roads, near the Ruined house. December seventeenth, remained in line of battle; some skirmishing in the fro

Ascertaining that the enemy had raised the siege, See the Siege of Knoxville, Doc. 19, ante. and were on the retreat early on Saturday morning, December fifth, General Shackleford, commanding the cavalry corps, was ordered in pursuit. He commenced skirmishing with the enemy's rear-guard eight miles from Knoxville, on the Rutledge and Morristown road. He drove them steadily to Bean Station, forty-two miles from Knoxville, where he found the enemy's cavalry in line of battle. On Thursday mornings, Colonel Bond's brigade, of Woodford's division, was in the advance. He charged, and drove the enemy from the place. The treating army had been foraging right and left along their line of retreat. He captured about one hundred and fifty prisoners during the pursuit as far as to Bean Station. Many of the rebels, both infantry and cavalry, purposely fell out and gave themselves up. Th
