I directed the two remaining brigades of Ruger's division, then at Johnsonville, also to move, one by railroad around through Nashville to Columbia, the other by road via Waverly to Centerville, and occupy the crossings of Duck river near Columbia, Williamsport, Gordon's Ferry, and Centerville.

Since the departure of General Sherman about seven thousand men belonging to his column had collected at Chattanooga, comprising convalescents returning to their commands, and men returning from furlough. These men had been organized into brigades, to be made available at such points as they might be needed. My command had also been reinforced by twenty new one-year regiments, most of which, however, were absorbed in replacing old regiments whose terms of service had expired. On the twenty-third, in accordance with directions previously given him, General Granger commenced withdrawing the garrisons from Athens, Decatur and H

was in the vicinity. If it was not near, evidently Lee had abandoned all hope of interposing between the Army of the Potomac and Washington, and had advanced into Maryland. Here (at Fairfax Court House) we gathered some idea of what was going on from the Washington newspapers. A lot of Rebel prisoners under a cavalry escort coming along, gave us information of a cavalry fight and confirmed the newspaper reports of Lee's movements. We moved on to Germantown, to Bristoe Station and Centerville, to Dranesville and on the 27th crossed the Potomac at Edward's Ferry and camped for the night near Poolsville, Md., and the next day marched beyond Hyattstown to near the defenses of Washington and began making plans to visit the city. But the next day we moved rapidly from camp by way of New Market to New Windsor. On the next day we moved with quickening steps from New Windsor to Manchester, and the first indications of serious business began to show. The men were urged and commanded

s I love my home, and earnestly as I desire to visit it, I will not return to it until I can do so without causing disgrace to my home and friends. September 1. My health and strength permitting, I hope soon to write to you, far beyond Centreville, the account of our great victory there, which God grant to our arms! I feel rather despondent at times. I am not at all well, and not nearly so strong as I was three months since, and sometimes I feel as if I must lie down, and give up tryihou didst give us up and leave us behind, so great was thy love and so clear was thy duty. Kindle our hearts with the same fire, that we may say, with holy content, Rise, bright immortal, to thy native place. He rejoined his regiment near Centreville, October 18, 1863, and was the same day mustered into the United States service as First Lieutenant. He was most cordially welcomed by his brother officers, and assigned to Company H, commanded by an old friend, Captain Arthur Curtis. Octo
d on the 14th of May in supporting charge by Stewart's Division upon the enemy. On the 15th, battle of Oostenaula. The battery was divided, one section on each side of a battery in a fortified work. The charge of the enemy was most desperate, and they captured and held the fortification, but were repulsed from the front of each section of Fenner's Battery, which held their positions till night, and then evacuated. Retreat of the army was continued to Calhoun, Adairsville, Cassville, Centerville; engaged more or less at each of those points. On the 25th of May occurred the battle of New Hope Church, one of the finest fights of the war. It was an assault of the whole of Hooker's Corps on Stewart's Division. The attack was almost a complete surprise. Fenner's Battery went into position at a gallop, had several horses killed while unlimbering, and fired canister at the first discharge. The engagement was continuous for two hours, during the whole of which time, owing to the th

with calmly replying to the President, through General Halleck, that it was, and had been, his intention to attack when the whereabouts of the enemy was discovered; that only lack of information on this head and fear of jeopardizing his communications with the capital had prevented his doing so thus far. And that was all. But the pressure from Washington continued, and resulted in the second episode to which I have alluded, two days later. On the 18th of October, from the vicinity of Centerville, General Meade telegraphed Halleck asking for information of General Lee's movements, and announcing that it is impossible to move this army until I know something more definite of the movements of the enemy. Everything indicated that the Confederate army was between Bull Run and the Rappahannock, but a rumor had reached General Meade that its head had appeared again in the lower Shenandoah Valley. Upon this, General Halleck, seemingly having lost all patience with his subordinate's ig
of Aldea to the Centreville heights. Yesterday morning, for the first time for several winters, I saw the distant mountains covered with snow. Their white and shining tops mingling with the clouds presenting a beautiful appearance. The sight was truly enjoyed by the Southern troops, and I heard several wish it were nearer, so they could walk in it and handle it. They will have opportunities enough before the winter is over, unless the season is a remarkable one. The roads between Centerville and Manassas are very bad indeed, and it is with great difficulty the provision wagons can be driven over them. It the army remains east of Bull Run some better route will have to be opened to transports, or the men will suffer for commissary stores. The road by Blackburn's ford is very poor the greater portion of the way, and hundreds of men are constantly employed in repairing it. With all the trouble it improves but little, and wagoners begin to dread the trip for fear of accidents t
The latest. From the New York Herald, of the 22d inst., we make the following selections: Movements of the Confederates at Centerville and Manassas. Washington, Feb. 21. --Trains of cars were running all last night between Centreville and Manassas. Some interpret this movement as indicative of an evacuation of these places, and others a withdrawal of the rebel troops from Centreville to Manassas, with a view to strengthen the latter place, in the belief that an early forward movement of our troops in that direction is meditated. The evacuation of Manassas is the prevailing topic here to day. Reports are rife that the rebels are abandoning the line of the Potomac, and preparing for a foot-race beyond the reach of the converging folds of the McClellan anaconda. It is believed, however, by those who have the best opportunity to know, that the crowds of rebel soldiers reported to be passing South through Richmond are composed chiefly of these of the rebel army in
