The House insisted upon its amendment, asked a committee of conference, and the chair appointed Mr. Blair, of Missouri, Mr. Thomas, of Maryland, and Mr. Hickman, of Pennsylvania, managers on the part of the House. On the fifth of February, the Senateported an amendment to the fourth section, giving the sutler a lien on one sixth of the officers' and soldiers' pay. Mr, Thomas, of Massachusetts, proposed to amend the section so as to declare that the sutler should have no legal claim upon any offennsylvania, advocated the measure, and Mr. Cox, of Ohio, and Mr. Norton, of Missouri, opposed it. On the twenty-fifth, Mr. Thomas, of Massachusetts, opened the debate in favor of the passage of the bill: You die, he said, without this measure; you cer for the care of the sick and wounded, the checks against any abuse are well considered, and will prove effective. General Thomas wrote a letter indorsing the bill, and suggested an amendment, which was adopted by the Committee. I have full confi

Lieutenant Hudson, after getting into position, soon silenced their guns. In the mean time Thomas's brigade rapidly advanced, and deployed to the left flank of the enemy. The enemy seeing this movement, and being pressed by Abercrombie, retired, hotly pursued for four miles by artillery and infantry.

Such names as Roberts, Shaeffer, Harrison, Stem, Williams, Reed, Houssam, Drake, Wooster, and McKee, all field officers, and many other commissioned officers, of the right wing, who fell vindicating their flag, will never be forgotten by a grateful country.

Goddard, Adjutant-General and Chief of Staff: Major: I have the honor to submit to the Major-General commanding the Department of the Cumberland, the following report of the operations of that part of my command which was engaged in the battle of Stone River, in front of Murfreesboro.

It gives me great pain to report the heavy losses in brave officers and men that my brigade sustained on that bloody field. The following commissioned officers of the Ninth regiment fell killed on the field: Major Sandford, Captain Launius, Lieutenant Spencer. The following were wounded: Colonel White, Adjutant Thomas, Lieutenants Kelly, Essleman, and Kerr. In Pindall's battalion were wounded: Captains Cake and Phillips, and Lieutenant Armstrong. In the Eighth regiment were killed: Lieutenants Foster and Farley.

On the seventeenth of February the President ordered me, by telegraph, to detach Lieutenant-General Hardee, with the infantry of his corps, except Stevenson's division, to aid Lieutenant-General Polk against Sherman in Mississippi. This order was obeyed as promptly as our means of transportation permitted. The force detached was probably exaggerated to Major-General Thomas--for on the twenty-third the Federal army advanced to Ringgold — on the twenty-fourth drove in our outposts — and on the twenty-fifth skirmished at Mill Creek Gap, and in the Crow Valley east of Rocky Face Mountain. We were successful at both places. In the latter, Clayton's brigade, after a sharp action of half an hour, defeated double its number. At night it was reported that a United States brigade was occupying Dug Gap, from which it had driven our troops. Granbury's Texan bri
