eauregard's 20,000 on his left flank and rear, and Grant would never have reached Harrison's Landing—if, indeed, his army too had not been conquered. Yet Beauregard received for his victory at Drury's Bluff rather more of censure than of commendation. The last telegram sent by General Beauregard to General Whiting on the day of the battle read as follows: Headquarters, Department, May 16th, 1864:11.30 P. M. Major-General Whiting: Your despatch of 7.30 P. M. (sent by the guide Archer), replying to mine of 4.15 P. M., is received. I rely and insist that you shall effect a junction with my right to-morrow morning, as indicated in my despatch of 6.45 P. M., herewith repeated in duplicate. G. T. Beauregard. The foregoing despatch had been sent to General Whiting upon receipt of the following telegram: General Beauregard, Drury's Bluff: I am here for the night near Walthall's Junction. Didn't get your despatch until near night. Had driven the enemy all the way

This force was distributed from Battery No. 1, it crossed day before yesterday and last night from Harrison's Landing. Could we not have more reinforcements here? G. T. Beauregard. Telegram. Petersburg, June 15th, 1864. To Lieut.-Col. Otey, A. A. G.: The following just received at Mrs. Archer's twelve noon: Enemy's line of skirmishers across Beasely field, advancing in this direction. E.
