Richmond, Jan. 29. we have some interesting particulars of the recent expedition of the North-Carolina forces into East-Tennessee, which terminated so disastrously, and resulted, among other misfortunes, in the capture of General Vance, who was in command. General Vance crossed the Smoky Mountain at the head of Lufty, with about three hundred and fifty-five cavalry, two pieces of artillery, and one hundred and fifty Indians. The force had great difficulty in crossing; the soldiers had to take the horses out of the wagons to get down the mountain over a perfect sheet of ice for three miles. After getting to the foot, part of the command was left, while General Vance, with about one hundred and seventy-five men, started to Sevierville on a reconnoissance. When in about two miles, he heard of a Yankee train of wagons being there. Our small force immediately charged and captured seventeen wagons, one hundr

Doc. 56.-rebel army in Virginia. General Lee's order. headquarters army of Northern Virginia, January 22, 1864. the Commanding General considers it due to the army to state that the temporary reduction of rations has been caused by circumstances beyond the control of those charged with its support. Its welfare and comfort are the objects of his constant and earnest solicitude, and no effort has been spared to provide for its wants. It is hoped that the exertions now being made will render the necessity but of short duration; but the history of the army has shown that the country can require no sacrifice too great for its patriotic devotion. Soldiers! you tread, with no unequal steps, the road by which your fathers marched through suffering, privation, and blood to independence. Continue to emulate in the future, as you have in the past, their valor in arms, their patient endurance of hardships, their high resolve to be free — which no trial could shake, no bribe

Doc. 58.-re-organization in Tennessee. Governor Johnson's proclamation. Nashville, January 26, 1864. whereas, in consequence of the disloyalty of a large majority of the persons filling the offices established by the constitution and laws of Tennessee, and of the majority of the people of the State, and as part of the legitimate fruits of secession and rebellion against the Government of the United States, the people of Tennessee have been deprived for nearly three years of all free, regular, and legitimate government, and they are now without a Governor chosen in the ordinary way, Legislature, representation in the Congress of the United States, and without courts, judges, chancellors, and the various legitimately authorized county officers: And Whereas, it is believed that a majority of the people of the State are ready and desire to return to their allegiance to the Government of the United States, and to recognize and restore the State Government to the exercise o
Doc. 59.-speech of Howell Cobb. Delivered at Atlanta, Ga., Jan. 28, 1864. When I look back, my friends, to the last few months, I confess that the present moment is one corresponding with that bright sun that has blessed us in the past few days with his benignant rays; I feel energy anew arising up in my heart, and a new inspiration appealing to the manhood of every citizen of our Confederacy, stimulating him to renewed efforts in the great cause in which we are engaged. When I look to your army, I find that its ranks are being filled up day by day, and the roll of honor increasing with every morning and evening's sun. The spirit of these brave men is unbroken. Would that our people throughout the land could gather the inspiration as it rises around the camp-fires of our army. Despair would cease among them, and despondency give way before a bright and promising sun. My friends, I come to-night to address myself to Georgians. Deeply as every portion of our people are int

Brown, commanding the bark Restless, at the conclusion of his last report concerning the destruction of the extensive salt works in the vicinity of St. Andrew's Bay — namely, that he would complete the work so handsomely begun — appears to have been kept. He reports that he went on board the stern-wheel steamer Bloomer, with two officers and forty-seven men belonging to the Restless, and proceeded up the bay, against very unfavorable circumstances of darkness, wind, and tide, some ten miles above St. Andrew's, where his force was, and destroyed some ninety additional salt works, together with all the boilers, kettles, and buildings attached to them; whereupon the enemy commenced the destruct
