s, a detachment from the Twelfth, lost, out of fifteen, 5 killed and 8 wounded. The enemy admit a loss of over 4,000. Colonel Thomas, commanding one of the negro brigades, told Captain Jones (of our regiment), yesterday during the truce, that he carrand we have a force of 4,250 men. But this average is manifestly too small, when we consider the statement of Colonel Henry G. Thomas, who commanded the Second brigade of the Fourth division (Ferrero's) of the Ninth corps, made in his article in r Confederate side of our works, could well have met a determined assault made from this direction. These pits, says Colonel Thomas in his Century article, referring to the trenches at this place, were different from any in our lines—a labyrinth of ight be more, or it might be less. It could not have been much less, however; that is as near as I can judge. Colonel H. G. Thomas, commanding the Second brigade of Ferrero's (colored) division, on the stand: Ques.—Did you get beyond the l

As soon as the firing was heard General Wilcox sent Thomas's and Scales's brigades to Lane's assistance, and they arrived just as Lane's brigade had repulsed this body of the enemys a pine thicket in front, under cover of which the advance was made. A heavy fire of musketry from Walker's brigade and Thomas's, which was on its left, and a fire of artillery from a considerable number of guns on Heth's line, were opened with

He is certainly one of the most successful, most gallant, most unassuming and most modest officers that I have ever seen. He is worth a million of the stay-at-home somebodies. The Yankee salute seems to have been in honor of Hood's defeat by Thomas, instead of the fall of Savannah, although we of the army are daily expecting to hear of the latter disaster also. We were not prepared for Hood's defeat. Lieutenant Meade and myself are living in two nicely-pitched tents, which are joined toSociety Papers, Vol. IX, pages 494-‘95.fresher. It delighted me last Saturday to see how my men rushed forward with a yell from Mahone's old quarters when I ordered them to the front to reinforce the main line of works after the enemy had swept Thomas's skirmish line.
