d piles to be cut, and contemplated procuring a pile-driver from the navvyard, before Com. Lynch took command of the fleet. In my first communication to the office at Norfolk, and in several subsequent ones, I made application for a steam pile-driver, and received the reply, that it could not be procured. I urged the importance of obstructions to Col. Wright, commandant of the post, and he agreed with me, but said, he had no authority to obstruct the channel. Gen. Hill was here November fourteenth. I spoke to him on the subject, and he went to Norfolk, saying that he would try to send down a pile-driver. He was soon after ordered to another post, and the pile-driver never came. Gen. H. gave authority to Dr. Warren & Co. On December first I was in E. City. I saw some old schooners; asked Mr. Clarke, if he would buy them, and send them down, if I wrote for them. He replied, that he would without delay. I thereafter consulted Col. Wright, who did not consider himself auth
ortation. In the mean time, reconnoissances were made, and plans matured for operations. Despatches were sent to Sherman, informing him of the movement of Longstreet, and the necessity of his immediate presence at Chattanooga. On the fourteenth of November, I telegraphed to Burnside as follows: Your despatch and Dana's just received. Being there, you can tell better how to resist Longstreet's attack than I can direct. With your showing, you had better give up Kingston at the last ms necessary to a successful dislodgment of the enemy. Guerrillas having become somewhat troublesome to the north-east of McMinnville and east of the Caney Fork of the Cumberland, Brigadier-General Elliott, Chief of Cavalry, was ordered, November fourteenth, to establish his headquarters, with the First division of cavalry, at or near Alexandria, and employ the division in hunting and exterminating these marauders. Elliott reached Alexandria on the eighteenth, and on the twenty-seventh repor
hed to Maryville; went into camp and remained there till the morning of the seventh, during which time we scoured the country as far down as Little Tennessee River, where Lieutenant McAdams, of the First Kentucky cavalry, gained a glorious victory by drowning, killing, capturing, and completely routing twice his own number. On the morning of the seventh, General Sanders's cavalry corps fell back across Little River to Rockford, where we remained till the morning of the fourteenth. November fourteenth, early in the morning, the rebels made a dash on the pickets, and captured part of the Eleventh Kentucky cavalry. They soon began to press our lines all along the river with a heavy force — Wheeler's and Forrest's. About nine o'clock General Sanders ordered our forces to fall back. We fell back to Stock Creek, skirmishing all day. In the evening our regiment was put on picket, extending from Frenche's bridge, across Stock Creek, on the Martin Gap road, along the creek to its mouth,
The boys of the rebel army.--A remarkable instance of gallantry and endurance, on the part of a youth of fifteen years, has been brought to our notice, on the authority of his captain. His name is Francis Huger Rutledge Gould, a protege of the Right Rev. Bishop Rutledge, of Florida, and a private in company B, Captain Latt. Phillips, Third Florida regiment. On the eighth ult., he fought barefooted through the battle of Perryville, and made himself conspicuous by his daring conduct, winning from his captain the highest encomiums for his gallantry.--Charleston Courier, November 14.
n Kilpatrick, and the artillery reduced to the minimum, one gun per one thousand men. The whole force was moved rapidly, and grouped about Atlanta on the fourteenth November. In the mean time, Captain O. M. Poe had thoroughly destroyed Atlanta, save its mere dwelling-houses and churches, and the right wing, with General Kilpa Dazel; and Ninth Michigan cavalry, Colonel Acker, amounting to two thousand seven hundred (2700) men. I left my encampment at Marietta on the morning of November fourteenth, with five thousand five hundred (5500) men and six (6) pieces of artillery; reached Atlanta same day, and bivouacked for the night. Was informed by the GeWe have three times crossed, from left to right and right to left, in front of our army, and have marched upward of five hundred and forty miles since the fourteenth of November. Have destroyed fourteen thousand and seven bales of cotton, two hundred and seventy-one cotton-gins, and much other valuable property. Have captured tw
ions indicated, some mistakes may have been made. Yet I believe that the principal operations and diversions required of the cavalry have been, throughout tile march, successfully accomplished. Certainly it is a fact, that not once has the enemy;s cavalry been able to reach the train or flank of one of our many infantry columns. We have three times crossed, from left to right and right to left, in front of our army, and have marched upward of five hundred and forty miles since the fourteenth of November. Have destroyed fourteen thousand and seven bales of cotton, two hundred and seventy-one cotton-gins, and much other valuable property. Have captured two (2) three-inch rifled guns, and have them now in use. Captured and destroyed eight hundred and sixty-five stands of small arms; have taken upward of five hundred prisoners, and killed, wounded, and disabled not less than one thousand five hundred of the enemy. We have lost four officers killed, six wounded, and two missing; thi

November thirteenth, marched at daylight to Ackworth, thirteen miles, destroying the railroad from the Etowah River to Allatoona Creek, eight miles. November fourteenth, marched at daylight, passing to the right of Kenesaw Mountains, and bivouacked at Nickojack Creek, twenty miles. November fifteenth, moved at daylight to Atlanta, (12) twelve miles. November sixteenth, left Atlanta at eleven A. M., Atlanta was begun, encamping first night three miles from Etowah River. November thirteenth, passed through Allatoona Gap, destroyed the railroad from Allatoona Creek to a point one mile beyond Ackworth, and went into camp at Big Shanty. November fourteenth, division crossed the Chattahoochee River. November fifteenth, marched through and camped near the city of Atlanta. November sixteenth, passed through Decatur and marched as far as Shaphinger Creek. From the seventeenth the march was c

Probably tore up three fourths of a mile of the railroad track. November 14.--Marched to Atlanta and joined the division, and on the following day march honorable part. We left camp at Chattahoochee River, on the morning of fourteenth November, and, until we camped before Savannah, were on the march through Georgia Home. With this exception, the regiment continued upon this duty until November fourteenth, when it was relieved by Major-General Slocum, and ordered to report to ross the Chattahoochee River, and rejoined the brigade at Atlanta on the fourteenth November. On the twenty-first October, the brigade formed part of a foraging exp Smith, commanding post. Here we remained as part of the garrison until November fourteenth, when, having the day previous, contributed our one quarter-mile of dest
vember, 1864; and considering so great a number of buildings were destroyed, and very many by fire, in the compact part of the city, at a time when many stragglers were passing through the town, and when the excitement of so great a conflagration was almost overpowering, it is not too much to say that all the officers and men of that command deserve great praise for the prompt and energetic and successful performance of this new, difficult, and fatiguing duty. On the morning of the fourteenth November, I received an order from Major-General Slocum, commanding left wing army of Georgia, to remain in the city with my command until all the troops had passed, and then join the rear of the Fourteenth corps, Brevet-General J. C. Davies commanding, which I did at five o'clock P. M., November sixteenth, 1864; remaining with that corps, and marching in its rear, until the afternoon of the twenty-first November, at five o'clock, when, at Eatonton Mills, Georgia, I left it, and joined the Twe
