l behaved well throughout the campaign. I did not see and have not heard of a single straggler or a skulker from either battery, and do not think there was one. Lieut. A. Morrison deserves special mention for conspicuous gallantry upon all occasions, and especially for the great service which he did with his command at Resaca on the evening of the 14th ultimo. Captain McDowell handles his battery well, and proved himself a good soldier on more than one occasion during this campaign. Lieut. G. H. Briggs, of the Fifth Indiana, fully sustained his former reputation for coolness and courage and accuracy of firing. To Captain Spencer and his battery I am greatly indebted for their gallantry and pertinacity under rather trying circumstances, and I desire to draw particular attention to the services which he rendered, as he was out of his own division. The ammunition which we drew after our first supply was exhausted was execrable. Many of the cartridges had been wet; the powder in m

ollected, were sold in the streets by the newsboys some time ago, a hundred dollar bill for five cents. They were bought extensively as curiosities. Mr Hilton, however also had some of these fac similes, signed by dexterous penmen in imitation of the signatures of the Confederate register and treasurer, and these were sold to persons going near the Confederate lines, who used them to advantage in dealing with the rebels.--Mr. Hilton also entered into arrangements with a young man named George H. Briggs, formerly of Atlanta, Georgia, who had come North to circulate these bonds South. This was done so extensively that the South was flooded with these spurious bills, which, though cheaply printed, were superior in appearance to the genuine Confederate money, until it fairly broke down the currency of the Southern States, so that they were obliged to destroy their old plates, call in their old issues, and print entirely new money. Mr Hilton was thus able to damage materially the Souther

At one of these interviews Briggs was closeted with Major Cummings, the agent ofChalker's Complicity with the Rebels. When Briggs came to this city in the spring of 1863 he mads the captain of the inspector's force. Mr. Briggs. It is said that it is principally throuvery great, and he was judicious enough to ask Briggs "for God's sake to swear that this check from check of $1,000 has drawn, it is stated, for Mr. Briggs as the principal witness, but Mr. Chalker being greedy cashed the check himself and gave Mr. Briggs one hundred dollars, reserving nine hundred for himself, and intimating to Briggs that he (Chalker) had got $100, and that $100 was Brigg's half. Mr. Chalker, however, had Briggs in his power, and by simply making known antecedents could procry possible exertion to have an interview with Briggs and that he has sent to him in indirect ways t[14 more...]
