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. General Liddell was absent on leave, but hearing of the fight, returned and rendered me all the
