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
Doc. 5.-crossing the Rappahannock. June 5, 1863. headquarters army of the Potomac, Saturday, June 6, 1863. for the third time in six months, the Rappahannock has been successfully crossed by our brave men, with slight loss. 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
