The following is a list of chronometers found on board schooner Archer: Bark Tacony, going; bark Whistling Wind, run down; brig Umpire, going; brig Clarence, going; ship Byzantium, going; bark Goodspeed, going. It appears from the memorandum-book that Lieutenant Read and crew went on board the Tacony about the fourteenth of May. On the twenty-fifth of June he seems to have burned the Tacony and gone on board the Archer. The last memorandum of the Lieutenant says: It is my intention to go along the coast with the view of burning the shipping in some exposed harbor or cutting out some steamer. On discharging the cargo of the Archer Saturday evening the twelve-pounder brass howitzer which was on board the Tacony was found on board, together with arms and ammunition.

to see the enemy's cavalry disappear over the hill. General Grant in person was with my column at the time, and ordered me to camp there one division (Steele's) on the Edward's Depot road, aud the other (Tuttle's) toward Raymond. Whilst there we heard that the enemy had met General McPherson near Raymond, and was defeated. Next morning we marched to Raymond, and passed on to Mississippi Springs, where we surprised a cavalry picket, capturing them, and on the following day, namely, May fourteenth, pushed on to Jackson by the lower road, McPherson's corps following the Clinton road. We communicated during the night, so as to arrive at Jackson about the same hour. During the day it rained in torrents, and the roads, which had been very dusty, became equally muddy, but we pushed on, and about ten A. M., were within three miles of Jackson. Then we heard the guns of McPherson to the left, and our cavalry advance reported an enemy to our front at a small bridge at the foot of the
ain, also thirty-seven dollars in greenbacks. May 12.--I was below last night on the river. Bombs flew thick. We had an election to-day for lieutenant; Sergeant Card was elected. We drew bear (Sic) on his expenses. May 13.--Considerable excitement last night. Boys all left the Hermitage. I sent half of my crew. Yanks are said to be in force two miles from the breastworks. I went to the breastworks. The Yanks cut the telegraph wire and destroyed a bridge five miles from here. May 14.--We had a pretty hot bombardment last night. We are again in camps. The long-ranged guns dropped a few shells into our camps this evening. May 18.--The Yanks came over to the Hermitage, and drove off the beef cattle. Sent over the infantry portion of the regiment, Colonel Locke commanding, but the Yanks had left. They took Captain Pruett, Lieutenants Andrews and Crymes, and several privates prisoners. May 19.--The Yankee fleet is above. Our company has gone over the river. The b
ere could cooperate. All the strength you can quickly assemble should be brought. Time is all-important. On Thursday, May fourteenth, the enemy advanced by the Raymond and Clinton roads upon Jackson. The resistance made by the brigades of Greggberton. After marching six miles the troops encamped. From this point I sent to General Pemberton the despatch of May fourteenth, of which the following is a copy: General: The body of troops mentioned in my note of last night compelled Brigadr, to Calhoun Station. On the morning of that day I received a letter from General Pemberton, dated Edwards's Depot, May fourteenth, (Thursday,) five forty P. M.: I shall move as early to-morrow morning as practicable a column of seventeen thousame day I received General Pemberton's first reply to the order sent him from Jackson to attack Sherman, dated Bovina, May fourteenth, nine o'clock and ten minutes A. M., as follows: I move at once with my whole available force from Edwards' Depot.
