--Last night a soldier train ran into a land slide between Pollards
and killed twelve and wounded fifty-seven of the First Mississippi battalion of artillery.
Last night two white men and one negro were arrested for cutting the wires.
Some Federal vessels are crossing in the bay. The garrison in Fort Morgan
are in fine spirits; otherwise all is quiet below.
--The explosion yesterday is still unexplained.
The enemy are concentrating their lines on our right, their left, and receding from the direction of the Weldon railroad and showing themselves in diminished force.
Everything indicates that the enemy are throwing themselves, on the defensive.
There was little sharp-shooting and scarcely any mortar or artillery firing to- day.
