were agreed to, and the bill as amended passed. The Senate, on motion of Mr. Wilson, voted to disagree to the amendments of the House and ask a committee of conference on the disagreeing votes. Mr. Wilson, Mr. Trumbull, and Mr. Powell were appointed managers on the part of the Senate. On the twenty-ninth, the House, on motion of Mr. Schenck, insisted on its amendments; agreed to a committee of conference, and the Speaker appointed Mr. Schenck, of Ohio, Mr. Deming, of Connecticut, and Mr. Ward, of New-York, managers on the part of the House. On the thirtieth, Mr. Schenck, from the committee of conference, reported that the House recede from its first amendment, that the Senate agree to the other amendments, except the thirty-first amendment, and agree to it with an amendment. The report was agreed to. On the first of July, Mr. Wilson made a report from the conference committee, which was agreed to; and the bill was approved by the President on the fourth of July, 1864.

n the thicket and ravine across the Warrenton road, not far from the Henry house. The Thirty-eighth New York was quickly formed in order of battle, and the Zouaves were hastening into line, when I received an order to detach a regiment for the support of Ricketts's battery, (of Franklin's brigade,) posted on a hill quarter of a mile to our right and front, near Dogan's house. I led up the Zouaves for this important service, leaving the Thirty-eighth under its gallant and experienced Colonel Hobart Ward. Ricketts was soon ordered to take a new position near the Henry house. The Zouaves followed in support, and finally formed line on the right flank of the battery with two companies in reserve. Up to this time the enemy had fallen back, but now he formed the remains of his brigades engaged with Hunter in the morning, viz., Bee's, Barton's and Evans's, in a new line upon Jackson's brigade of fresh troops, making all together six thousand five hundred infantry, thirteen pieces of
evening, during which time we had driven the enemy two miles beyond Lavergne. The Third Indiana and Anderson troop behaved gallantly, charging the enemy twice, and bringing them to hand-and-hand encounters. The conduct of Majors Rosengarten and Ward, the former now deceased, was most heroic. On the twenty-eighth we made a reconnoissance to College Grove, and found that Hardee's rebel corps had marched to Murfreesboro. On the twenty-ninth, Colonel Zahn's brigade having formed, was directede fronted too recklessly; having dispersed their cavalry, the troop fell upon two regiments of rebel infantry in ambush, and after a gallant struggle were compelled to retire, with the loss of Major Rosengarten and six men killed, and the brave Major Ward and five men desperately wounded. With the loss of these two most gallant officers, the spirit of the Anderson troop, which gave such full promise, seems to have died out, and I have not been able to get any duty out of them since. On the t
strict Ordnance Officer, and Major Suber, District Quartermaster, have been actively and usefully employed. Major Motte A. Pringle, Post Quartermaster, and especially in charge of transportation, has been indefatigable night and day, with the small means at his disposal, and which he could obtain, in forwarding stores and supplies, and relieving troops during the whole period. In this duty he has been assisted greatly by the boats and crews of the Confederate navy, under charge of Lieutenants Ward, Haskell, and Payne. I shall continue this report from this date. I have the honor to inclose a report of casualties during the period treated of. I also send the reports of Lieutenant John Johnson, Engineer, in charge of Fort Sumter, and a list of prisoners captured. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, R. S. Ripley, Brigadier-General, commanding. Report of Brigadier-General R. S. Ripley of operations from the Twenty-First to the Thirty-First of July, inclusive.
