e had carried the mountain as far as the road from Chattanooga valley to the White house. Soon after, his main column coming up, his line was extended to the foot o by Carlin's brigade, First division, Fourteenth corps, which arrived at the White house about five P. M., in time to take part in the contest still going on at thaterwhelming opposition from the rifle-pits in the orchard before reaching the White House, and having no cover, were falling back in considerable disorder; the enemy ued. The force on my right, under Champion and Wood, swept down between the White House and summit. The other regiments pressed the enemy's flanks, and we drove thg the side and down the mountain, between a quarter and half-mile beyond the White House, over breastworks, ravines, and rocks, and Lookout Mountain was ours. My con command of this brigade, with a portion of his staff had possession of the White House, whence messages were sent at two o'clock to General Cruft, division command
the Patuxent at this port last night, the information is obtained that the rebels are concentrated about nine miles west of Newbern. Up to the hour when the Patuxent left Newbern, no reenforcements had arrived in the department, notwithstanding that a despatch was sent to Fortress Monroe ten days ago. Where is General Butler? I saw it in the papers a short time since that he was in Washington, D. C., at Willard's, I presume, taking a brandy smash, with the political wire-pullers of the White House. The good he has done since he took command of affairs here, is so insignificant, that few see it. He has done one thing, namely, prevented the poor soldier from taking his accustomed government ration of liquor.

We now directed our course toward White House, but halted for the night at Bidnella Cross-Roads — thremanner as to strike the Pamunkey about eight miles above White House. The next morning it was ascertained that the rebs were probably endeavoring to make their escape by way of the White House. We omitted to mention a report that they saluted Camp had joined him, came up with their rear-guard, near Tunstall's Station, when a skirmish ensued, resulting in the capture of<
urth and Seventy-fifth Illinois had already been gallantly pressed forward four or five hundred yards in advance of the crest, and beyond and to the left of the White House, and sufficiently far to uncover the mouth of Chattanooga Creek and allow troops to pass from the city to our rear. My other regiments were in the line rather above and to the right of the White House, but fully covering the plateau of ground on which it is situated. There were two regiments of the troops on my right that were immediately under the high ledge of rocks at the top of the mountain that were farther advanced than the centre of the line. I was greatly annoyed with overturted their ammunition. Thus all my regiments had been in the front line during this engagement. The ground in front of the centre of the line, in and about the White House, I believe, was the common stock of the skirmishers of all the commands engaged, and at the house they found in park two pieces of the enemy's artillery, (with
