in front there was a bridge, the road there turning to the left to reach Ellerson's Mill. Here on the evening previous there had occurred one of the most sickening slaughters imaginable. The Yankees had breast-works and batteries with infantry supports on the hill to the left of Ellerson's Mill. The creek had been dammed until the entire meadow had been overflowed and no body of infantry could ever have crossed this open space as long as the Yankees chose to keep them from doing so. A Colonel Williams, commanding an Alabama Regiment, I think, did, however, make an attempt to cross this overflowed meadow, and as a consequence his entire command was cut to pieces. In a space of less than 100 yards there lay two hundred and sixty dead Confederates, and no one knows how many had been wounded and carried off. The impression made upon the troops passing at that point was not calculated to increase their courage, as it was supposed that in the very near future we would again run up agains

ne 25, 1863, page 930, to Davis.If the plan I suggested the other day of organizing an army even in effigy under Beauregard at Culpeper C. H., can be carried into effect, much relief will be afforded. If even the brigades in Virginia and North Carolina, which Generals D. H. Hill and Elzey think cannot be spared, were ordered there at once, and General Beauregard were sent there, if he had to return to South Carolina; it would do more to protect both States than anything else. General Lee, Williams port, June 25, 1863, to Davis.It seems to me that we cannot afford to keep our troops awaiting possible movements of the enemy, but that our true policy is, as far as we can, to employ our own forces as to give occupation to his, at points of our selection. * * * I feel sure, therefore, that the best use that can be made of the troops in Carolina and those in Virginia now guarding Richmond, would be the prompt assembling of the main body of them * * together with as many as can be drawn fro

and the papers will no doubt make much ado about the President being under fire. May 30.—For two days and nights my men have been ready awaiting an order to march. Stovall has resigned and Delony becomes Major and Young, Lieutenant-Colonel; Williams and Ritch will be Captains in Delony's Old Squadron; John Rutherford remains Adjutant of the Legion. June 5.—Since Johnston was wounded Lee is in command, and he is as reticent as Johnston. June 10.—The papers say that Andy Johnson has beeady—a Mrs. Seevers—cordially welcomed me. General Banks made this house his headquarters, when he was occupying the same room I have. My hostess gave me an amusing account of how the Yankees scattered when old Stonewall attacked them here.
