Canby was therefore unable to send any force whateveourse I must trust to Admiral Farragut and General Canby. To Canby he said on the same day: If poseach be reinforced by fifty thousand men; that Canby should move to Montgomery, and he himself towarans, who commanded in Missouri, but compelled Canby to abandon any idea of reinforcing Granger bef know but it will be the best move for Major-General Canby's troops to act upon Savannah, while yohundred from Mobile.

These co-operative movements of Canby and Foster suggested themselves to Sherman as well aes for the same object; the troops of Rosecrans, and Canby, and Foster, were all in motion, and their operation
necessary for the general success that it should be fought at a certain time. Canby's operations in the rear of Hood were intended to be co-operative with Thomas'sstudied by Grant, to divine his course. Meanwhile, the cooperative movement of Canby was delayed, as we have seen. Until Thomas assumed the offensive against Hood, Canby was obliged to hold Vicksburg and Memphis so that they could not be seriously threatened, and his own expedition into the interior was thus postponed. At lasous quarters; and now, if only the success at Franklin was followed up, so that Canby could move into Mississippi, the danger at the West was past. But while thusso sent orders to Sherman to guide him on his arrival at the coast, and he made Canby's movements depend on those of the army in Tennessee. He once declared that hiut. Moreover, so long as Hood occupies a threatening position in Tennessee, General Canby is obliged to keep large forces on the Mississippi river, to protect its na

On the 14th of February, he said to Thomas: Canby is preparing a movement from Mobile bay againsm Eastport, Mississippi, ten thousand cavalry; Canby, from Mobile bay, with about eighteen thousandote with his own hand forty-two dispatches.

Over 70,000 rebels were surrendered by Johnstf the general-in-chief had proceeded to their designed development. The forces of Stoneman and Canby moved on the 20th, and those of Wilson on The 22nd of March. No formidable army opposed either as checked by the news of the surrender of both the great rebel armies. On the 27th of March, Canby's force arrived before Mobile; it was in three divisions, commanded by A. J. Smith, Gordon Grang and Sheridan were approaching from the North. The troops that escaped from Mobile were between Canby and the cavalry, and if they had tried could have done no better than their fellows. The rebell
decidedly of opinion that he ought to operate by Montgomery and Selma, and connect himself with Canby and Farragut on the Alabama river, thus severing the northern part of Georgia and Alabama, and almost Mississippi, from the rebel confederacy. This view was taken in his letters to General Canby, copies of which were sent to the Adjutant-General's office, and in his opinion I fully concurred, and so wrote both to him and Canby, directing them, however, to make no important movements until they received your instructions. I judge, from a dispatch just received from General Sherman, thatas early as possible.

To Major-General Dix: The department has received the following dispatch from Major-General Halleck, commanding the Military Division of the James. Generals Canby and Thomas were instructed some days ago that Sherman's arrangements with Johnston were disapproved by the President, and they were ordered to disregard it, and push the enemy in every direction. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War. General Hhere have information to-day that Jeff Davis's specie is moving south from Goldsboroa, in wagons, as fast as possible. I suggest that orders be telegraphed, through General Thomas, that Wilson obey no orders from Sherman, and notifying him and Canby, and all commanders on the Mississippi, to take measures to intercept the rebel chiefs and their plunder. The specie taken with them is estimated here at from six to thirteen million dollars. H. W. Halleck, Major—General commanding. Genera
