ng to us efficient canvassers, to whom we would pay liberal commissions. We are under obligations to Mr. W. R. Jones, of the Richmond and Petersburg railroad; Captain N. M. Osborne, Secretary of the Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio railroad; the authorities of the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad; and Governor J. E. Brown, President of the Western and Atlantic railroad, for kind courtesies by which we were enabled to make an exceedingly comfortable and pleasant trip from Richmond to Atlanta and return. We regretted that we were not able to avail ourselves of a similar courtesy extended us by Mr. J. W. Thomas, Superintendent of the Nashville, Chattanooga and Saint Louis railroad. A recent trip to Georgia, although necessarily more hurried than we could have wished, was made exceedingly pleasant by meeting many old comrades, and by being made to feel that our Society has a warm place in the affections of the people, and that they mean to give practical proof of their app

from his entering the territory of the State up to Columbia, and from Columbia to the North Carolina border, was one continuous track of fire. The devastation and ruin thus inflicted were but the execution of the policy and plan of General Sherman for the subjugation of the Confederate States. Extracts from his address at Salem, Illinois, have appeared in the public prints and thus he announces and vindicates the policy and plan referred to: We were strung out from Nashville clear down to Atlanta. Had I then gone on, stringing out our forces, what danger would there not have been of their attacking the little head of the column and crushing it? Therefore, I resolved in a moment to stop the game of guarding their cities, and to destroy their cities. We were determined to produce results, and now what were those results? To make every man, woman and child in the South feel that if they dared to rebel against the flag of their country they must die or submit. The plan of subjugati

His decision I have already given. The mountain was held till 2 o'clock of the next morning, and the troops, artillery and trains were withdrawn in order to the eastern side of Chattanooga creek. Report of General E. C. WalthallATLANTA, Georgia, December 13, 1863. Major James D. Porter, Jr., A. A.

About dark, on the evening of the 23d, I received orders from Brigadier-General Commanding to hold my command in readiness to move at a moment's notice, and, late in the night, to have three days rations prepared; but in view of the movements of the enemy on the

twenty miles to be passed over before reaching Chewalla. Heavy rains late in the evening and at night, with total darkness, made it impossible to accomplish the desired object, and the troops were halted about midnight, and the next morning, the 18th, turned eastwardly to scour the country in front of the enemy's lines, so as to unite with the main body of my force, which had been marched the day before from New Albany in the direction of Guntown, to watch and harass the threatened raid on Atlanta, if made. After a short march, Captain Puryear got into the rear of a party of the enemy's cavalry moving from the east, westwardly, in the direction of Ripley, and I was informed that Captain Puryear having failed in his first object would follow after the enemy, then three hours in advance. At two o'clock P. M., when within four miles of Ripley, Captain Puryear ascertained that the enemy he had been pursuing had united with a much larger force at Ripley, who came out from Chewalla and
