we found about three hundred of them there at work. Sam Brannan was on hand as the high-priest, collecting the tithes. Clark, of Clark's Point, one of the elders, was there also, and nearly all the Mormons who had come out in the Brooklyn, or who was found in the smaller gulches round about, but the gold in the river-bed was uniformly scale-gold. I remember that Mr. Clark was in camp, talking to Colonel Mason about matters and things generally, when he inquired, Governor, what business has Sam Brannan to collect the tithes here? Clark admitted that Brannan was the head of the Mormon church in California, and he was simply questioning as to Brannan's right, as high-priest, to compel the Mormons to pay him the regular tithes. Colonel Mason answered, Brannan has a perfect right to collect the tax, if you Mormons are fools enough to pay it. Then, said Clark, I for one won't pay it any longer. Colonel Mason added: This is public land, and the gold is the property of the United S

denoted a severe battle as in progress, which began seriously at 11 1/2 A. M., and ended substantially by 4 P. M. It was a fierce attack by the enemy on our extreme right flank, well posted and. partially covered. The most authentic account of the battle is given by General Logan, who commanded the Fifteenth Corps, in his official report to the Adjutant-General of the Army of the Tennessee, thus: headquarters Fifteenth Army Corps, before Atlanta, Georgia, July 29, 1864. Lieutenant-Colonel William T. Clark, Assistant Adjutant-General, Army of the Tennessee, present. Colonel: I have the honor to report that, in pursuance of orders, I moved my command into position on the right of the Seventeenth Corps, which was the extreme right of the army in the field, during the night of the 27th and morning of the 28th; and, while advancing in line of battle to a more favorable position, we were met by the rebel infantry of Hardee's and Lee's corps, who made a determined and desperate att

ll of which fell into our hands. Our loss here was about twenty-five killed and wounded. The enemy retreated as fast as possible, and passed through Clinton as our advance entered the town. The road from Messenger's came in here, and the Sixteenth corps came in after the Seventeenth had passed through the place. Lee again planted his artillery in such a manner as to command the road two miles east of Clinton, but was soon routed, with slight damage to us. At this point, Lieutenant-Colonel William T. Clark's horse was shot from under him, and he received a slight scratch on the hand from a rifle-ball. We passed forward as rapidly as possible, and at ten o'clock P. M., the Seventeenth army corps bivouacked among the ruins of the fallen city of Jackson. Our cavalry had pressed the enemy closely to this point, and as he entered the town was compelled to abandon a fine Whitworth gun, which fell into our hands. From here the enemy went north, to Canton, and crossed Pearl River, an

ext day fought with artillery across the New River at the railroad bridge. We again drove the enemy from the field, burned the bridge, and also the bridge at Central Station. We destroyed a large amount of quartermaster and ordnance stores. The battle, which is called the battle of Cloyd's Net, was fought on the ninth of May. I escaped without a scratch, though under the heaviest fire. Captain Hunter, Lieutenant Seaman, of the Twenty-third Ohio, Captain Channel, of the Twelfth Ohio, Captain Clark, of the Ninety-first Ohio, Captain Wetzel and Lieutenant Jenkins, of the Ninth Virginia, and Colonel Wolworth, of the Fourth Pennsylvania, are among the killed. Captain Williams, of the Twelfth Ohio, was severely wounded, and I fear will not recover. We captured three hundred prisoners. General Jenkins, Lieutenant-Colonels Smith (son of Extra Billy) and Lynches are among the number. After burning the New River bridge, we crossed the river to Blacksburg, and marching through the c
