He designated Pocotaligo, Grahamville, and Hardeeville as points for he Federals against Colonel W. S. Walker, at Pocotaligo and Coosawhatchie. General Beauregard was tint, and marching thence in the direction of Pocotaligo, they took possession of the railroad at Coothe Mackay's Point road and the road between Pocotaligo and Coosawhatchie. The engagement was then Coosawhatchie, and those from Charleston to Pocotaligo, as both points were being assailed in forcest, with two strong regiments, only reaching Pocotaligo the next day, October 23d.

On November 4th he applied to Governor Pickens for the iron plating which protected the old floating battery used, in April, 1861, during the attack on Fort Sumter. He accepted the four regiments of reserves (infantry) offered him by the governor for the defence of the sea-coast of South Carolina. Two of these he immediately ordered to Pocotaligo, in the Third Military District, and the two others to Georgetown, in the Fourth District (a new one), now being organized, which was afterwards placed under the command of Brigadier-General Trapier. Governor Pickens answered in his usual earnest way, granting General Beauregard's request about the iron.

based, apparently, on the conviction that the troops of the enemy assembled in this Department for operations against Charleston have been mainly withdrawn and directed to other expeditions in North Carolina and the Valley of the Mississippi. This conviction I regret that I cannot share, as I am satisfied, from the reports of district commanders and from other reasons, that there has been really but little reduction of the command of Major-General Hunter. General Walker, commanding at Pocotaligo, reports that on yesterday the outposts of the enemy in his front had been much increased in strength. General Hagood reports them to be occupying Seabrook's Island with at least 2500 infantry. They are erecting fortifications at that point, as also on Folly Island, which is likewise still occupied in force. Five of the monitors remain in the North Edisto, with some twenty gunboats and transports. With these and the transports still in the waters of Port Royal, and the forces which,

In view of Sherman's present position, his manifest advance towards Branchville from Pocotaligo and Coosawhatchie, the weakness of our forces, and the expected arrival of the reinforcements above referred to, it was deemed inadvisable to concentrate our forces at Branchville and there offer battle to Sherman. During the pending negotiations for peace it was thought of the highest importance to hold Charleston and Augusta as long as it was humanly possible.
