Lt.-Colonel Arthur J. Fremantle, Three Months in the Southern States, June, 1863. (search)
Murfreesborough. Several men in my car had served with her in a Louisianian regiment, and they said she had been turned out a short time since for her bad and immoral conduct. They told me that her sex was notorious to all the regiment, but no notice had been taken of it so long as she conducted herself properly. They also said that she was not the only representative of the female sex in the ranks. When I saw her she wore a soldier's hat and coat, but had resumed her petticoats. 6th June, 1863 (Saturday). Arrived at Atlanta at 3 A. M., and took three hours sleep at the Trouthouse hotel. After breakfasting, I started again for Augusta at 7 A. M. (174 miles); but the train had not proceeded ten miles before it was brought up by an obstruction, in the shape of a broken-down freight train, one of whose cars was completely smashed. This delayed us for about an hour, but we made up for it afterwards, and arrived at Augusta at 5.15 P. M. The country through Georgia is undula
k. June 1, 1863. L. and B. went up to Mr. Marye's near Fredericksburg to-day, to visit their brother's grave. They took flowers with which to adorn it. It is a sweet, though sad office, to plant flowers on a Christian's grave. They saw my sister, who is there, nursing her wounded son. News from Vicksburg cheering. June 5th, 1863. Our household circle has been broken to-day, by Mrs. S. and her daughter B. leaving it for South Carolina. We are grieved to give them up. June 6th, 1863. We have been interested lately by a visit to this village of our old friend, Mrs. T., of Rappahannock County, She gives most graphic descriptions of her sojourn of seven weeks among the Yankees last summer. Sixty thousand surrounded her house, under command of General Siegel. On one occasion, he and his staff rode up and announced that they would take tea with her. Entirely alone, that elegant old lady retained her composure, and with unruffled countenance rang her bell; when the s
the river some twenty-five (25) miles, destroyed a ponton bridge, together with a vast amount of cotton, rice, and other property, and brought away seven hundred and twenty-seven slaves, and some fine horses. We had some sharp skirmishes, in all of which, the men behaved splendidly. I hope to report more fully in a day or two. I have the honor to be, General, Your most obedient servant, James Montgomery, Colonel Commanding S. C. V. A National account. Port Royal, S. C., June 6, 1863. We have at last received accurate intelligence of Col. Montgomery's expedition, which was most brilliant in its success. It was composed of five companies of the Second South-Carolina volunteers, (colored troops,) and a section of battery C, Third Rhode Island artillery, captain Brayton, all under command of Colonel Montgomery, and left Beaufort on transports about nine o'clock last Monday evening, en route for Combahee River. It had proceeded as far as St. Helena Sound, when one of

Yesterday morning the Engineer brigade was ordered to proceed to the river, with a pontoon train sufficient for two bridges. Howe's splendid fighting division of the Sixth corps was selected for the work of crossing, and the point for laying the bridges was ficer, and his loss is deeply regretted. He had rendered valuable services at every former crossing, and was promptly at his post again, when he was struck by the fatal bullet. Another account. headquarters army of the Potomac, Saturday, June 6, 1863. An order was issued to the army yesterday to be in readiness to march at a moment's notice with three days rations, while all baggage, stores, etc., were ordered to the rear. At eight o'clock the pontoon train moved down toward Frank
Doc. 7.-General Fremont's letter. New-York, June 6, 1863. To the Hon. Edwin M. Stanton, Secretary of War: Sir: I received from the War Department on the twenty-third ultimo, a copy of Gen. Butler's demand to be declared the ranking officer of the army of the United States, regular and volunteer. By your order I am informed that his demand will be referred for decision to a board of officers, and I am invited to submit any remarks which I desire to make upon the subject, and am allowed for this purpose fifteen days from the date of your order. In reply, I have to say that I do not think the question open to discussion. This is a case involving the acts of the Government, which have a binding and conclusive force, the bare statement of which is sufficient for a decision. The strength of Gen. Butler's argument rests upon the assumption that it was the President's intention to make him the senior Major-General, in consideration of his meritorious services rendered in the

No. 24. sir: Herewith you will receive copies of the following papers: A.--Letter of George Moore, Esq., Her Britannic Majesty's Consul in Richmond to this department, dated February sixteenth, 1863. B.--Letter from the Secretary of State to Consul Moore, February twentieth, 1863. C.--Letters patent by the President, revoking the exequatur of Consul Moore, June fifth, 1863. D.--Letter inclosing to Consul Moore a copy of the letters patent revoking his exequatur. It is deemed proper to inform you that this action of the President was influenced in no small degree by the communication to him of an unofficial letter of Consul Moore, to which I shall presently refer. It appears that two persons, named Molony and Farrell, who were enrolled as conscripts in our service, claimed exemption on the ground that they were Briti
red by the commander of the land forces that our shrapnel and shell passed directly over the heads of our own men, exploding in front of the ranks of the enemy, causing them to break and retreat in disorder. The guns of the Mayflower, which was at that time lying at the wharf and commanding the streets, were served with great effect. . . . . . . . . George Bacon, Lieutenant Commanding United States Navy. To Rear-Admiral S. F. Du Pont. Charleston Mercury account. Charleston, June 6, 1863. The destruction of property on Bull's Island some days ago, and the recent raid on the Combahee, involving an immense loss of property, is followed by the burning of the beautiful town of Bluffton on May River. This last outrage took place on Thursday morning last, and resulted in the loss of about forty private residences and nearly one hundred outhouses, stores, etc. We have succeeded in obtaining a list of the property owners who have suffered by the burning of their beautiful hou

Gunboat Commodore Morris, off Yorktown, Va., June 6, 1863. . . . At eight P. M [on the fourth] . . . we started up the York River, passing West-Point at forty-five minutes past ten, without noticing any thing that would indicate the presence of the enemy. . . . We arrived at Walkerton at two A. M.ion at the White House, twelve miles from where we landed, I think they were as fortunate as could be expected. . . . J. H. Gillis, Lieut. Com. and Sen. Officer, off Yorktown. To A. R. Admiral Lee. A National account. Yorktown, Va., June 6, 1863. We have just returned from one of those interesting little expeditions through King William County, Va., that are now termed raids. The whole affair was a perfect success. It was carried out in a soldierly way, and one of the most satisf
Treachery of the rebels. camp of Fifth Pennsylvania cavalry, Williamsburgh, Va., June 6, 1863. During the last few days there appeared a flag, purporting to be a sign of distress, on Hog Island, opposite King's Landing, on the James River. The matter, as soon as reported to Major C. Kleinz, received due attention by an examination by the Major in person, who, after satisfying himself of the existence of the flag, ordered Lieutenant James Smith, of company A, to take a small boat and visit the island, to ascertain the object of the parties displaying the flag of truce. Lieutenant Smith took one man (and two contrabands to row the boat) with him, and started for the Island. When coming within two hundred yards of the east end of the island, he could distinguish a camp in a clump of trees, also a flag floating in the air; he then drifted his boat westward along the island, without being able to see any thing more than the white flag, which was constantly displayed in an inviting m

The regiment remained at Corinth during the eight months subsequent to that battle; then, on June 6, 1863, it moved to Pocohontas, Tenn., where it guarded the railroad for a few months. In January, 335 of the men reenlisted, and went home on the customary veteran furlough granted in such cases. The Twelfth started on the Atlanta campaign, May 9,
