Doc. 155.-General Schofield's order. headquarters Department of Missouri, St. Louis, August 2, 1863. Large numbers of men are leaving the broken rebel armies in the Mississippi valley, and returning to Missouri. Many of them doubtless come back with the purpose of following a career of plunder and murder, under the form of guerrilla warfare, while others would gladly return to their homes as peaceable citizens, if permitted to do so, and protected from violence. The State is in danger of a repetition of the scenes of violence and bloodshed which characterized the months of July and August, 1862. The united efforts of all loyal and peaceably-disposed citizens, as well as of the troops of this department, will be required to avert this evil. It is the desire of the Commanding General that all those who voluntarily abandon the rebel cause, and desire to return to their allegiance to the United States, shall be permitted to do so under such restrictions as the public peace

icksburg to attempt to extricate the garrison, but could not devise a plan until after reconnoitring, for which I was too late. Without General Pemberton's cooperation, any attempt must have resulted in disaster. The slowness and difficulty of communication rendered cooperation next to impossible. J. E. Johnston. Extract from Lieutenant-General Pemberton's report of the battles of Port Gibson, Baker's Creek, and the siege of Vicksburg. Headquarters, Gainesville, Alabama, August 2, 1863. General S. Cooper, Adjutant and Inspector-General, Richmond, Va.: On the 30th of April I received the first information of the landing of the enemy on the east bank of the Mississippi River. General Bowen reported by telegraph that three thousand (3,000) Federal troops were at Bethel Church, ten miles from Port Gibson, at three o'clock on the morning of the 29th, and that they were still landing at Bruinsburg.

Doc. 46.-the siege of Vicksburg, Mississippi. Lieutenant-General Pemberton's report headquarters Gainesville, Alabama, August 2d, 1863. General S. Cooper, A. and I. G., Richmond, Va.: General: At the earliest moment compatible with the performance of other and very pressing duties, I have the honor to present the following report of the operations of the troops of the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, preceding and during the siege resulting in the capitulation of Vicksburg. The enemy, after long continued and strenuous efforts to reach the right flank of Vicksburg by forcing a passage through the upper Yazoo River, finally relinquished his design, and on the night of the fourth and fifth of April, re-embarked his troops, and before daylight was in rapid retreat. About the same time a heavy force of the enemy which had been collected at Baton Rouge, was mostly withdrawn, and transferred to. Western Louisiana, leaving but one division to occupy that place.
