under originally designed for the Narrows work. T. J., C. S. 24. On the 12th of December, General Beauregard informed the War Department, by telegram, that General Banks's fleet had left, suddenly, two days before, with about ten thousand men, diverging from its southern course and making directly for Cape Lookout. The informahe War Department occur, and my presence be required by you, I will hasten to join you, although I have little doubt that you will be able to take good care of General Banks and his associates. Respectfully, your obedient servant, G. T. Beauregard. On the next day the following despatch was forwarded to the War Department: nts seemed to indicate as his purpose. General Beauregard's direct co-operation was desired by Generals Whiting and Smith. The latter was of opinion that, should Banks's forces unite with Foster's, as reported, more troops would be needed from General Beauregard, and that he could come over with them, as all geographical lines sh
troops left there, should they be hard-pressed; but that is not to be dreaded, considering the terrible lesson the enemy has just had at Chancellorsville, and that a large portion of his army is to be disbanded during the present month, to be replaced, if at all, by new Yankee recruits. Meanwhile a sufficient number of Captain F. D. Lee's torpedo-rams could be constructed in England, and the navigation of the Mississippi River resumed, thereby enabling us to retake New Orleans and capture Banks's army.

The Governors of some States, notably Governor Seymour, of
ounder intended for that battery. G. T. Beauregard. Charleston, S. C., Dec. 12th, 1862. Genl. S. Cooper: 10th inst. Banks's fleet, with about 10,000 men, left suddenly its southern course and made directly for Cape Lookout. This is reliable. d. It is stated by scouts that the enemy are constantly receiving reinforcements. Have you anything more definite about Banks's fleet and forces? Can you come up in the morning without inconvenience? Am I at liberty to forward any of your troopemy are now estimated at thirty thousand, and scouts report that reinforcements are constantly arriving from Newbern. If Banks's forces are uniting with Foster we will need more troops from you. I consider all geographical lines rubbed out, and assn the contrary, that the enemy's forces had been greatly reduced, if not mostly withdrawn, to attack Mobile, or reinforce Banks on the Mississippi River? 28th. Was not the truth of this information doubted, if not denied, at these Headquarters?
