id, Mr. R. M. Fuller, rendered valuable service by the intelligent discharge of his duty at the telegraph office. The Messrs. Cuthbert, father and son, gave me useful assistance. Privates Tripp and Bell were seriously, and private Martin slightly wounded. Captain Hartstene's horse was wounded, and Captain Walker's killed. The judgment, coolness, and gallantry displayed by Captain Hartstene, were as conspicuous on land as he has hitherto shown on sea. I must express my indebtedness to Mr. Buck-halter of the Charleston and Savannah Railroad, for valuable services, and for the resolution and courage with which he urged a train filled with troops, after the engineer had been killed, through an ambuscade of the enemy to Coosa-whatchie. When the engagement was over, ample reinforcements arrived from Savannah and Charleston. The enemy's gunboats remained in a commanding position off Mackay's Point on the twenty-third, covering their embarkation. My force could not be moved nearer

. Of this, and the situation at the point to which Cleburne's division was thus sent, Captain Irving A. Buck, then Cleburne's Adjutant-General, and now residing in Baltimore, writes as follows: to move at one o'clock A. M., although it in fact succeeded in moving half an hour earlier. Captain Buck, Cleburne's Adjutant-General, has furnished me the preliminary and final orders received by Cabout thirty-five hundred carried into action (I get these figures from his Adjutant-General, Captain Buck); and one of his brigades in a single desperate charge lost about one-half of the entire numba place on Hardee's staff. L. P. Yandell. The following is an extract from the letter of Captain Buck, Cleburne's Adjutant-General, the first of which is quoted above: As above stated, I believe him capable of making any imputation against General Hardee. Very respectfully, Irving A. Buck. The following is from Hon. Walter L. Bragg, during the war a soldier and officer in Cl

he occupied the line of Tunnel Hill, where the division remained on outpost duty until the opening of the campaign in May, 1864. A few days after reaching Tunnel Hill, Cleburne received a flag of truce from General Hooker at Ringgold in regard to exchange of prisoners. Of Cleburne's troops it need only be said that they were worthy of their commander — a man of lofty courage, and pure patriotism, unerring in his military instincts, and quick and resolute in the execution of his plans, which once matured, never miscarried. So uniform was his success, that at length friend and foe alike learned to note the place in the battle of his original blue battle flag, the distinctive mark of Cleburne's division — the only one in the Confederacy allowed to be carried into action other than the national colors. Just one year after his brilliant service at Ringgold, on the fatal field of Franklin, Cleburne died as he had lived--sans peur et sans reproche. Irving A. Buck. Baltimore,

h which we credited him in our last, but that it was written by Captain W. J. Seymour, who served on General Hays's staff — the only connection Colonel Palfrey having with it being to furnish copies of the letters of Generals Lee and Cooper. We regret that we were led into this mistake by the friend who sent us the paper. We are always careful to have a responsible name attached to everything we publish, and this is the first instance in which we have gotten the wrong name. Major Irving A. Buck, of Baltimore, the name signed to the paper, and not Major Brock, the name which the printers put at the head of it, was the author of the interesting sketch of Cleburne and his division at Missionary Ridge and Ringgold Gap, which we published in our last number. These mistakes in names are very annoying, and we felicitate ourselves that they do not occur often. The Louisiana division, A. N. V., had, we judge from the reports, a most delightful reunion and banquet in New Orlean

all, and was left to surmise the meaning of the movement, as regiment after regiment filed by. In my former notice of this gratuitous remark, I asked if it was designed as further evidence that Ruggles was finally blamed, justly? Then added, This detached brigade (Gibson's) was not then under my orders — not until it rejoined my division. This is a rigid military rule. My troops, indeed, were disciplined to be held always ready, as was shown by Colonel Pond's (3d) brigade resisting General Buck's early attack, and my two other brigades having been the first troops to form and ready to march to engage the enemy on the morning of the 7th of April. Furthermore I asked attention to the following orders, received at 1 o'clock P. M., on the 3d of April, at Corinth: head quarters Second corps, A. M., Corinth, 3d April, 1862. Brigadier-General Ruggles Commanding Division: You will move out your division by way of Monterey to the intersection of the Purdy and Monterey road with

Report of General M. P. Lowry of battle of Taylor's Ridge. Headquarters Lowry's brigade, Tunnel Hill, December 3, 1863. Captain I. A. Buck, A. A. General: Sir,--I have the honor to submit the following report of the part taken by my brigade, on Taylor's Ridge, in the battle of the 27th November, 1863: Early in the morning Major-General Cleburne called on me for my smallest regiment, to be placed on the mountain to the left of the gap, through which the railroad and wagon road passed, leading out from Ringgold in the direction of Tunnel Hill. I sent the Sixteenth Alabama regiment and Captain Palmer, A. A. General, to place them in position. My other three regiments were then placed in the gap. After the skirmishing had commenced between Smith's brigade and the enemy, Major-General Cleburne informed me that the enemy was moving in force to his right and he wished me to go on the ridge to the right and protect his right flank. I moved my brigade at once by the right flank,

far as I know, did his whole duty. To Brigadier Generals Polk and Lowry, and Colonels Govan and Granbury I must return my thanks; four better officers are not in the service of the Confederacy. Lieutenant Goldthwaite, of the artillery, proved himself a brave and skillful officer. The following officers of my staff have my thanks for the efficient manner in which they discharged their responsible and dangerous duties: Major Calhoun Benham, A. A. G.; Major J. K. Dixon, A. A. G.; Captain Irving A. Buck, A. A. G.; Captain C. S. Hill, ordnance officer; Surgeon D. A. Linthicum, Lieutenant L. H. Mangan, S. P. Hauley, aides-de-camp. Captain C. H. Byrne, volunteer aide-de-camp, also Messrs. Henry Smith and W. Rucker, of the signal corps, who volunteered their services, and who I found very efficient and useful I forward, herewith, the reports of brigade, regimental, and battery commanders.

of personal comfort, he was always mindful of the comfort and welfare of his troops. An incident which occurred at Atlanta illustrates his habitual humanity to prisoners. A captured Federal officer was deprived of his hat and blankets by a needy soldier of Cleburne's command, and Cleburne failing to detect the offender or to recover the property, sent the officer a hat of his own and his only pair of blankets. Among his attachments was a very strong one for his adjutant-general, Captain Irving A. Buck, a boy in years, but a man in al soldierly qualities, who for nearly two years of the war shared Cleburne's labors during the day and his blankets at night. He was also much attached to his youngest brother, who was killed in one of Morgan's fights in southwestern Virginia. This brother inherited the brave qualities that belonged to the name, and after being promoted from the ranks for distinguished gallantry, fell in a charge at the head of his regiment. Cleburne had accent e

nd Retreat (page 296), when referring to Cleburne, says: He was a man of equally quick perception and strong character, and was, especially in one respect, in advance of many of our people. He possessed the boldness and wisdom to earnestly advocate at an early period of the war the freedom of the negro and enrollment of the young and able-bodied men of that race. This stroke of policy and additional source of strength to our armies would, in my opinion, have given us our independence. Irving A.
