He declared that A distinguished Senator from Georgia once said, when traitors become numerous enough, treason becomes respectable. Traitors are gecers and Soldiers of his Command, for their gallant Conduct in their brilliant Movement through Georgia. In the House, on the fifth of January, 1865, Mr. Cole, of California, introduced a joint ren under his command, for their gallantry and good conduct in their brilliant expedition through Georgia.

o the wishes of the department, I submit the following review of the services of the monitors while under my command; and as some knowledge of the circumstances under which they have been tested may afford a better appreciation of their qualities, I shall briefly narrate some of the leading events in which they have participated during the operations at this place. On the sixth July Rear-Admiral Dupont delivered to me the command of the naval forces occupying the coast of South Carolina, Georgia, and part of Florida. They embraced seventy (70) vessels of all classes, and were distributed at various points along an extent of more than three hundred miles. There was no concentration, the purpose being rather to distribute the vessels in order to enforce an efficient blockade. Of the iron-clads, the Ironsides was off Charleston bar, two monitors were at Edisto, one at Stono, three at Port Royal, and one at Ossabaw. The orders of the department (June twenty-four, 1863) only dire

Watts, governor elect of Alabama, which explains, in terms unmistakable and unequivocal, his views on thd to the Editor of the Atlanta Intelligencer. Confederate States of America, Department of justice, Richmond, September 12, 1863. Hon. Ira R. Foster, Q. M. Gen. of Ga., Atlanta, Ga.: dear Sir: I have to-day received your letter of the first instant, forwarded to me from Montgomery, Alabama, and hasten to reply. You say that my name, since the Alabama election, has been freely used by many in connection with reconstruction, meaning thereby that some people in Georgia suppose I am in favor of re-union with the Yankee government of the North. I am surprised and mortified that anybody in the South should so interpret the Alabama election. If those who cla

eived a flesh wound in the thigh, from which, I am happy to say, he is rapidly recovering. That the casualties were not greater, I can only attribute to the interposition of a merciful Providence, who protects those fighting in a righteous cause. For casualties occurring in Major Abney's command, I refer you to that officer's report, which you will find herewith enclosed. Two hours after this train passed Grahamville another train arrived from Savannah with the Thirty-second and--------Georgia regiments, under the command of the gallant Colonel Harrison. Unfortunately, they arrived at Coosawhatchie after the enemy had retired, and thus were denied the pleasure which they seemed earnestly to desire, of having a brush with the Abolitionists. The enemy's boats retired immediately after the skirmish, leaving in their hasty retreat one of their splendid barges, capable of transporting seventy or eighty men. The next morning not a sign of the Abolition fleet was to be seen in th
Doc. 53.-Beauregade's letter to Pierre Soule. headquarters Drpartment of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, Charleston, S. C., December 8, 1863. Hon. Pierre Soule, Richmond, Va.: My dear, and attended with inevitable results such as our disasters in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Northern Georgia. 2. We must arrange for a sudden and rapid concentration, upon some selected, decisive sortion of the Confederacy. It would also be a deplorable injury to the energetic, populous State of Georgia, and cripple the resources of that people. We should, therefore, regard Atlanta as the actr besieged, until troops for their relief could be detached as required from the army in North-western Georgia. I will now state, approximately, what troops may, in my belief, be drawn from the follhe army at or about Dalton, namely: From Alabama and Mississippi10,000 From South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida8,000 From North Carolina2,000 From Virginia20,000   Total40,000 These for
Besides the causes of my removal alleged in the telegram announcing it, various other accusations have been made against me, some published in newspapers in such a manner as to appear to have official authority, and others circulated orally in Georgia and Alabama, and imputed to General Bragg. The principal are: That I persistently disregarded the instructions of the president. That I would not fight the enemy. That I refused to defend Atlanta. That I refused to communicate wit Atlanta would not be defended. He told me that the object of his journey was to confer with Lieutenant-General Lee, and communicate with General E. K. Smith, in relation to reinforcements for me. He talked much more of affairs in Virginia than Georgia, asserting, what I believed, that Sherman's army outnumbered Grant's, and impressed me with the belief that his visits to me were unofficial. A brief report by General Hood as Lieutenant-General, accompanies this. Most respectfully, You
