an irregular force of cavalry, was constantly threatening Memphis and the river above, as well as our routes of supply in Middle Tennessee. In this we failed utterly, because General W. Sooy Smith did not fulfill his orders, which were clear and specific, as contained in my letter of instructions to him of January 27th, at Memphis, and my personal explanations to him at the same time. Instead of starting at the date ordered, February 1st, he did not leave Memphis till the 11th, waiting for Waring's brigade that was ice-bound near Columbus, Kentucky; and then, when he did start, lie allowed General Forrest to head him off and to defeat him with an inferior force, near West Point, below Okalona, on the Mobile & Ohio Railroad. We waited at Meridian till the 20th to hear from General Smith, but hearing nothing whatever, and having utterly destroyed the railroads in and around that junction, I ordered General McPherson to move back slowly toward Canton. With Winslow's cavalry, and Hlu
ith the cavalry brigade to the neighborhood of Pale Green Church, and bivouacked. Friday, twenty-seventh ultimo, the brigade moved toward Old Church. By command of the General, I sent forward, to clear the road, company F, (Georgia Huzzars, Captain Waring,) of the legion. The pickets of the enemy were discovered at a point two miles from Old Church, and Lieutenant Waldron and private Herwellman succeeded in overtaking two of the lancers, and killed one and wounded the other, who was subsequentail regiment, consisting of the captain, one lieutenant, and fifty-one noncommissioned officers and men. Among the officers of my command, during the eventful period of time covered by this report, I would mention Major Stone, Captains Avery and Waring, and Lieutenants Waldham, Chestnut, and Moseley, of the legion; Captains Chamberlain and Strother, and Lieutenants Merchant, Smith, and Payne, of the Fourth Virginia cavalry; Captain Pelham and Lieutenant Shaw, of the horse artillery. It is hard
important service. I have doubtless omitted the names of many officers whose gallantry should be recorded, and shall, in a subsequent report, endeavor to do justice to all. I must, in conclusion, mention the good conduct of Sergeant Williams, of Lieutenant Poore's company, and Corporal Conneway, of the Twenty-second Georgia battalion, who greatly distinguished themselves. To the officers of my personal staff I am under obligations. I lament to record the death of the gallant Captain Waring, A. A. D. C., and the wounding of Captain Twiggs, Inspector-General, and Captain Stony, A. D. C., who were stricken down, nobly discharging their duty. To Captain Taliaferro, A. A. G., Lieutenants Mazyck and Cunningham, Ordnance Officers, and Meade, A. D. C., and to Surgeon Habersham, Major Holcombe, and Captain Boote, I tender my thanks for their aid, &c., during the course of the week. I would especially mention Captain Barnwell, of the engineers. In the early part of the week,

o much for my patience, and I then and there announced my intention to seek the hospitality of Mr. Waring, his neighbour, as I could not be any longer the guest of a man who received my complaint so uhe plantation with a small bundle of letters and papers, and was trudging through the woods to Mr. Waring's plantation. We have all our sudden likes and dislikes. The first view of the comfortable homeliness of Mr. Waring's house gave me an impression of family felicity, and when the old man with several smiling members of his family came to the door, it appeared to me as if it revived a pictue period spent at Major Ingham's, I possess a more vivid recollection of the night I passed at Mr. Waring's, and my thoughts have more often reverted to the more ancient house and its snugness and pleus to resuming my journey next morning, and they did not press me to stay. I begged, however, Mr. Waring to do me the favour to send a buggy for my trunk the next morning. When it arrived, I repacke
