Commander-in-chief's report.

The commanding General visited Suffolk during the investment, and in his annual report, says, viz.: “The rebel General Hill marched towards the Nansemond to reinforce Longstreet, who was investing Suffolk. Failing in his direct assault upon this place, the enemy proceeded to establish batteries for its reduction. General Peck made every preparation for defence of which — the place was capable, and retarded the construction of his works, till finally the attempt was abandoned.”
