J. B. Jones, A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, XXVII. June, 1863 (search)
la, in what numbers we know not yet; but just when Gen. Wise was about to attack, with every prospect of success, an order was received from Gen. Arnold Elzey to fall back toward the city, pickets and all. A letter from Gen. Holmes, containing an account from one of his scouts, shows that the enemy's militia in Arkansas and Missouri are putting to death all the men, young or old, having favored the Confederate cause, who fall into their hands. These acts are perpetrated by order of Gen. Prentiss. The President suggests that they be published, both at home and abroad. Mr. L. Heyliger, our agent at Nassau, sends an account of the firing into and disabling the British steamer Margaret and Jessee by the United States steamer Rhode Island, within a half mile of shore. Several British subjects were wounded. This may make trouble. Mr. J. S. Lemmon applied by letter to-day for permission to leave a Confederate port for Europe. Major-Gen. Arnold Elzey indorsed on it: This you

Like an Alpine avalanche our troops moved forward, despite the determined resistance of the enemy, until after 6 P. M., when we were in possession of all his encampments between the Owl and Lick Creeks but one; nearly all of his field-artillery, about thirty flags, colors, and standards, over three thousand prisoners, including a division commander (General Prentiss) and several brigade commanders, thousands of small-arms, an immense supply of subsistence, forage, and munitions of war, and a large amount of means of transportation, all the substantial fruits of a most complete victory — such, indeed, as rarely have followed the most successful battles, for never was an army so well provided as that of our enemy. The remnant of his army had been driven in utter disorder to the immediate vicinity of Pittsburg, under the shelter of the heavy guns

he futile Fremont, now in command of the department; but Grant spoiled their plans, and they accordingly revived the story of his drinking. By order of his surgeon he had taken some whiskey; and that was the whole of it. But it was enough. General Prentiss, a little jealous about rank, departed from Grant's jurisdiction, saying, I will not serve under a drunkard. The slander reached Washburne through the newspapers; and he, his faith in Grant already great, but not yet impregnable as it soon ichardson, he handed it to Grant. The general, who had suffered keenly from these reports, read it with much feeling, and said emphatically: Yes, that's right,--exactly right. Send it by all means. It is a creditable story to every one except Prentiss and the contractors; and it reveals Rawlins in a bright light. No wonder Grant let him swear whenever he wanted. For a little while Grant was ordered about hither and thither in Missouri; but there is nothing decisive to record until, soon a

It was assigned to Peabody's (1st) Brigade, Prentiss's (6th) Division, Army of the Tennessee, and was engaged soon after its arrival in the great battle of Shiloh.

It was engaged on active duty in Missouri for several months, during which it fought at Belmont, sustaining the heaviest loss of any regiment in thaarmed and equipped, and on the morning of April 6th arrived at Pittsburg Landing just as the battle of Shiloh was commencing. It had been previously assigned to Prentiss's Division, but being unable to find that command, Colonel Reid ordered the regiment into line, and it fought in McClernand's Division.

ing the bridges and covering the roads to Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church. The division in military occupation of Maryland under Gen. Banks, most of which is concentrated in and around Baltimore, consists of 7,400 men, with some field-guns. The corps at Fortress Monroe and Hampton, under Gen. Butler, is 11,000 strong, with two field batteries, some guns of position, and the fortress itself in hand. Gen. Lyon, who is operating in Missouri with marked success, has about 6,500 men. Gen. Prentiss at Cairo commands a division of 6,000 men and two field-batteries. There are beside these forces many regiments organized and actually in the field. The army under the command of Gen. Beauregard at Manassas Junction is estimated at 60,000, but that must include the reserves, and! a portion of the force in the intrenchments along the road to Richmond, in the immediate neighborhood of which there is a corps of 15,000 men. At Norfolk there are 18,000 or 20,000, at Acquia Creek 8,000 to 9

Noleman had only about forty men under his command at the time. The victory is complete. The prisoners were brought to this place this evening, and sent to the guard-house by Col. Oglesby, who commands at this point in the absence of Gen. Prentiss. We have here about sixty prisoners and a greater number of horses. The horses are said to be good ones, but the prisoners, from their looks, will have more to eat than they have been accustomed to, but they will have to perform labor on th

Having surrounded the dwelling, they captured eighteen of the evening they were brought over, and an informal examination was held in the sitting-room of the St. Charles Hotel, by Gen. Prentiss. Messrs. Long and Kelton were the principal witnesses, others not having yet arrived. They testified in the most States. They all declined except three young men, who had been enticed into bad company. Before discharging them, Gen. Prentiss made a few forcible remarks to them. Go home, said he, raise to-morrow morning the flag of the Union, of your countrn speech, denouncing the United States troops as murderers and d — d Dutch, and urging the people to fly to arms. General Prentiss told him that he should make up his mind that he had to wheel dirt, and to learn a lesson never yet taught in his bo
