on. Since writing the above, I have learned that the rebels have vamosed from the Fayetteville road, and are now making tall tracks for Lewisburg. Floyd was too wide awake to put his head into the trap laid for him. Several of our officers are terribly exasperated at being thus deprived of capturing the arch-thief; and among them all, I saw none more excited than the brave Gen. Benham. He felt almost confident that his brigade alone would be able for Floyd, and to be thus deprived of seeing him excited him considerably. It was surprising to me to see how expeditiously he marched his whole brigade across the Kanawha at night. Not a murmur escaped the lips of a single man — not a sound hardly was heard — all was done in a quiet, easy, and knowing manner. The men have the greatest confidence in him. He is an old soldier, having served twenty-eight years in the regular army; was second in his class, and is now about forty-five years of age. --Cincinnati Times, November 13
Doc. 159. General Dix's proclamation to the people of Accomac and Northampton counties, Va., Nov. 13. The military forces of the United States are about to enter your counties as a part of the Union. They will go among you as friends, and with the earnest hope that they may not by your own acts be compelled to become your enemies. They will invade no right of person or property. On the contrary, your laws, your institutions, your usages, will be scrupulously respected. There need be no fear that the quietude of any firesides will be disturbed, unless the disturbance is caused by yourselves. Special directions have been given not to interfere with the condition of any person held to domestic servitude, and in order that there may be no ground for mistake or pretext for misrepresentation, commanders of regiments or corps have been instructed not to permit such persons to come within their lines. The command of the expedition is intrusted to Brig.-Gen. Henry H. Lockwood
nents, but the bugle sounded the assembly, and reluctantly our comrades returned to their regiments. Here we rested for the night in the woods, and every preparation was made for an attack on our part on the following day, but when daybreak occurred not a living being was in sight to oppose our advance. At this point, every indication was a proof of there having once been a large encampment of traitors, and from information gained our calculations as to their force were substantiated. November 13th was not marked by any change in our proposed plans. We moved forward through their strong intrenchments, having however, halted at Camp Dickerson for a few hours, where our fun was of the nature of robbing hen-roosts and pig-sties of a secessionist, and justice must be given to us for such theft, for our hunger was great, and especially so was the fact in regard to our Dutch brethren, who ran short of subsistence. The intrenchments were of a most formidable character, and so situated a

As that wretched struggle with the elements, over execrable roads, will be remembered by five thousand abused volunteers as long as they retain their faculty of memory, it deserves description. You will remember that Wednesday afternoon, November 13th, General Schoepf issued an order requiring all the troops to be ready to march at eight o'clock that evening. Commanders of corps were directed to carry with them all their sick, leaving such baggage and stores as could not be transported. ee with a strong column, to form a junction with Buckner, to penetrate the Blue Grass country. Such were the facts and statements prior to the hour of marching. The subsequent facts will appear in the following diary: London, Ky., Wednesday, November 13. Long before eight o'clock P. M., most of the troops of the Wildcat Brigade, with three days rations in their haversacks, were prepared to march. The sick who could be removed — and there were many too feeble to walk, yet able to ride
ntgomery, he received visits from Captain Ingraham, and a large number of other officers, with whom he had been acquainted in the service. Every effort was made on their part to obtain his release or parole. He remained in prison until the 13th of November, and was in regular communication with his friends and family until mail communication was cut off. All letters, excepting some of those from his family, were opened and read before he received them. He had access to the daily papers in Mone fortifications. A tone of despair seemed to prevail, and the people were loud in their denunciations of a Government which gave them no security, nor intelligence of the actual condition of affairs, and the result of operations. On the 13th of November Quartermaster Calhoun informed him that he had received a despatch ordering his release on parole, to go to Richmond to carry out a proposition for an exchange. Lieut. Worden left Montgomery on the 14th, having given his parole not to div
