's Department, and is referred to you for attention. General Lee is best informed of his situation, and his ability is too well established to incline me to adopt the opinion of anyone at a distance as to the movements which his army should make, either for its preservation or the protection of its communications. If fifteen thousand men can be spared for the flank movement proposed, certainly ten thousand may be sent to reinforce General Lee. If that be done immediately, General Lee's correspondence warrants the belief that he will defeat the enemy in Northern Virginia, The advantage of that result of our success against a besieging army around Richmond is obvious. (Signed) Jefferson Davis. May 19, 1864. Military courtesy required that the memoranda should be sent to General Lee, who, as soon as its purport was communicated to him, ordered General Beauregard to straighten his line, so as to reduce the number of men required to hold it, and send the remainder to him.

ying it at Jarratt's Station, south of the scene of their devastations a few days before, and passing by Prince George's Court-House, returned to City Point on the 17th. Kautz had seriously damaged the railways that lay in his track, skirmished sharply at many places, and took to City Point one hundred and fifty prisoners, of whom thirteen were officers. When Beauregard had perfected his batteries in front of Butler's lines at Bermuda Hundred, he opened their fire upon the Nationals, May 19, 1864. and pressed their picket line heavily. This was repeated the next morning, and under cover of these guns the Confederates assailed the advance of the divisions of Generals Ames and Terry. The pickets of the former were driven from their rifle-pits, and the line of the latter was forced back; but the rifle-pits were soon recovered by a brigade under Colonel Howell, after heavy fighting and much loss on both sides. The attack was renewed on the following day, with no better success, whe

perating with any chance of success. I am sorry to see that the rebel guerrillas have become quite troublesome on the Mississippi since I left, all of which will be rectified within the coming week. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant, David D. Porter, Rear-Admiral. Hon. Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy, Washington, D. C. Additional report of rear-admiral D. D. Porter. flag-ship Black Hawk, Mississippi Squadron, off mouth of Red River, La., May 19, 1864. sir: In my report in relation to the release of the gunboats from their unpleasant position above the falls, I did not think it prudent to mention that I was obliged to destroy eleven thirty-two pounders — not having time to haul them from above the fall to Alexandria, the army having moved and drawn in all their pickets. The best guns were hauled first. The thirty-two pounders were old guns, and would have been condemned on the first opportunity. For the same reason I also omitted
Doc. 20.-General Harney's Report. St. Louis, Mo., May 19, 1864. To the Adjutant-General United States Army, Washington, D. C.: General: I have the honor to forward a statement of my services since 1861, in obedience to the circular addressed to me from your office. I am, General, very respectfully, your obedient servant, W. S. Harney, Brigadier-General. Having been desired from the Adjutant-General's office, to make a statement of the events with which I have been more or less connected, as a public officer, since the breaking out of the present rebellion, I make the following brief reference to them. I was in command of the Western Department when the first overt acts of the rebels startled the country — not then prepared to anticipate the great results which followed. I was suddenly surprised by an order calling me to Washington, and set out immediately in obedience to it. At that moment Harper's Ferry was in possession of the rebels; but this fact had not bec
cause a complete index to the matter contained in such volume to be prepared and inserted therein; and that all resolutions adopted by either House of Congress at that session directing the printing of any of the correspondence, reports, or documents, as contemplated, be rescinded. The substitute was adopted, and the resolution as amended passed without a division. The Senate, on the sixteenth, concurred in the amendment of the House, and it was approved by the President on the nineteenth of May, 1864. No. Lxvi.--The Army Appropriation Bill for 1864. The House of Representatives, on the twenty-first of March, 1864, on motion of Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, proceeded to the consideration of the army appropriation bill, reported from the Committee of Ways and Means. Mr. Harding, of Kentucky, moved to amend it by adding a proviso, that no part of the money hereby appropriated should be applied or used for the purpose of raising, arming, equipping, or paying negro soldiers; bu
