The Daily Dispatch: May 4, 1863., [Electronic resource], What troops the Yankee States have sent into the field. (search)
Yankee prisoners. --Forty-five Abolition prisoners, who were captured at Kelley's ford on the 29th of April, arrived at the Libby prison on Saturday. They were mostly foreigners, and represented forty regiments, each man nearly belonging to a different one.--Speaking of Yankee prisoners reminds us to say that all the Yankee officers, (including the two Generals,) in number exceeding two hundred, and the privates and sailors, will be sent North under flag of truce on to-morrow, Judge Ould having arranged satisfactory terms with Col. Ludlow, the Federal Commissioner. The Central cars arrived last night, bringing 59 Yankees captured on Saturday in Spotsylvania county. They were lodged at the Libby prison.
Destructive fire. Wilmington, April 29. --A fire occurred last night on the west side of the river, which consumed the offices of the Wilmington and Manchester railroad, thirty-four freight cars of the Georgia Central road, and every building south of the depot, including the Confederate cotton press, Berry's Marine railway, and all the cotton stored south of the ferry — about six thousand bales of cotton. Loss estimated at from six to ten millions of dollars. [Second Dispatch.] ored south of the ferry — about six thousand bales of cotton. Loss estimated at from six to ten millions of dollars. [Second Dispatch.] Wilmington, April 29. --At the fire this morning about 4,400 bales of cotton, 25 freight cars, the railroad offices, rosin oil works, cotton press, Berry's ship yard shed, &c., were burned. The loss is estimated at five millions. The Confederate Government loses about one million; the balance falls on individuals. Insurance only about $10,000
From the Southwest. Dalton, April 29. --A large force of the enemy, consisting of infantry, artillery, and cavalry, attacked the pickets on the Ringgold road this morning, capturing ten and wounding several. The pickets retreated nearly to Tunnel Hill, when they were met by reinforcements, and turned upon the Yankees, and after a short engagement drove the enemy back. The loss on either side is small, and the affair is regarded simply as a reconnaissance to discover our position.--The enemy was also reported moving out slowly from Cleveland, yesterday, in the direction of Red Clay.
erate notes at par. The object in first passing the resolution was to sustain the Government in tire action which Congress had taken with reference to the currency, believing at the same time that merchants and others would do likewise. The sequel, however, had proven otherwise, and some steps were now necessary to save the city from any further loss. The President then offered the following resolutions, which were adopted: Resolved, That the resolution adopted by the Council on the 29th April last, requiring the Chamberlain to receive and pay out five dollars Confederate currency, be and the same is hereby rescinded. Resolved, That from and after this day the Chamberlain and all other city officers are required not to receive Confederate five dollar notes except at a discount of 33½ per centum, and to pay out the same at the said discount. Upon motion of Mr. Hill it was ordered that the above resolutions be published twice in all the daily papers of the city. The
From trans-mississippi. New Orleans, April 29, (via Atlanta, May 11) --Reports from Alexandria state that Banks's army was still encamped of that place, but would probably move towards Mississippi. Admiral Porter had gone up Red river to the place where the Eastport was on the sand bar. On his way Porter was continually harassed by the enemy, he having no infantry support. Steele and his army are reported returned to Little Rock, followed by Price, who kept up harassing attacks upon them. At Sabine Fort the rebels were turned upon and repulsed, after severe battles, with equal loss on both sides. Marmaduke is on the march to join Price to attack Little Rock. [another Dispatch.] Demopolis, May 13. --A dispatch to-day from Col. Scott, via Summit, confirms the account from trans Mississippi. The dispatch says: Gen. Taylor has Banks hemmed in at Alexandria, and a battery below, stopping all communication via Red river. Said battery is supported
Foul Pray with blockade Runners. --The Wilmington Journal says it has been hinted before that there was something like foul play connected with the capture of the Robert E Lee, (formerly the Giraffe,) and the following from the Halifax (N S) Journal, of the 29th April, seems to give color to the accusation: We understand that the American Consul at this port has been endeavoring to bribe the engineers and other officers on board the Confederate steamers in this port to betray their trust, as it is believed he was only the successful in doing in the case of the Robert Lee. He succeeded in gaining admittance to the City of Petersburg the other day without the Captain's knowledge; and we are requested by Captain Fuller to state that when he repeats his visit he will be provided with a speedy passage to the bottom of the dock, with a sinker upon him sufficient to keep him there. This is dignified work certainly for a representative of a nation which claims to be civilized — th
