d ears in love with him myself. April 29, Saturday Visitors all day, in shoals and swarms. Capt. Irwin brought Judge Crump of Richmond, to stay at our house. He is an ugly old fellow, with a big nose, but perfectly delightful in conversatio Mr. Reagan and Mr. Mallory are also in town, and Gen. Toombs has returned, having encountered danger ahead, I fear. Judge Crump is back too, with his Confederate treasury, containing, it is said, three hundred thousand dollars in specie. He is erret it out. They have already begun their reign of terror in Richmond, by arresting many of the prominent citizens. Judge Crump is in a state of distraction about his poor little wandering exchequer, which seems to stand an even chance between thegradation to which it is reduced — they grow pathetic over that. We have a charming circle of friends round us now. Judge Crump, especially, is one of the most entertaining men I ever knew. He has traveled a great deal and I was very much intere

to laugh at our miserable little jokes, and told some good stories of his own, but they fell flat, like the captain's. Judge Crump tried to talk of literature and art, but conversation flagged and always returned to the same miserable theme. Gen. Eet transportation to Norfolk by way of Savannah, decided last night that he would start for Virginia this morning with Judge Crump. He has no money to pay his way with, but like thousands of other poor Confederates, depends on his war horse to carry him through, and on Southern hospitality to feed and lodge him. He left his trunk, and Judge Crump his official papers, in father's care. Mother packed up a large quantity of provisions for them, and father gave them letters to friends of his allway, so it doesn't matter. We have had an unusually quiet day. Only three new guests, and two of them were sent by Judge Crump to see father on business. They brought news of the Judge and our dear Captain which we were glad to hear. I walked
re in regard to the ultimate object of the expedition. Suffice it to know that General Blunt had information that a brigade of Texas cavalry, under command of Colonel Crump, was encamped at Dripping Springs, eight miles north of Van Buren, and that he wished to capture them or break up their camp. He was also informed that largeobably reach Van Buren about the time he calculated we would get there. If we could capture and destroy those supplies and steamboats, and capture or break up Colonel Crump's camp it would of course cripple the rebel army in Arkansas to a very great extent,besides it would add to its demoralization, which was already great since tmeantime Gen. Blunt, who had kept up with us, sent back an order for the artillery and infantry to move forward with a quick ,step. The enemy, under command of Col. Crump, of a Texas cavalry regiment, were encamped along the north side of a hill, and immediately north of their camp were several fields with intermediate spaces cov

No fears are entertained of the enemy's success. two O'clock.--Mr. Myers has arrived; he left the yard at eleven o'clock. The steamer Time, it is thought, is not much injured, but under range of the enemy's big guns. Her loss just now is unbearable; steam power in the bay is quite limited. Capts. Lanier and Crump have all their teams strung out, and communication with the lines will be kept up by wagon trains. The Colorado and Niagara are still thundering away at the Barrancas and Fort McRae. five O'clock.--Another gentleman from just below says that it was reported among the outer camps that the wife of a sergeant-major had been killed in the yard. A despatch says our guns and batteries have suffered no injury. The firing is still heavy on both sides. The frigates have changed their pos
eral Jackson's advance guard had reached the neighborhood of Ashland, a company of the Eighth Illinois cavalry drove in my videttes from the point where the Ashcake road crossed the Telegraph road. I ordered Lieutenant Smith, of the Black Horse cavalry, Fourth Virginia, with seventeen men, to drive the enemy back. He charged at once, and the enemy fled, leaving two horses dead on the road, carrying off one man killed and one wounded in the charge. Lieutenant Smith had two men wounded, private Crump, arm broken, and private Robertson, wounded slightly. The telegraph wire, which had been cut, was immediately restored. Thursday, twenty-sixth ultimo, moved with the cavalry brigade to the neighborhood of Pale Green Church, and bivouacked. Friday, twenty-seventh ultimo, the brigade moved toward Old Church. By command of the General, I sent forward, to clear the road, company F, (Georgia Huzzars, Captain Waring,) of the legion. The pickets of the enemy were discovered at a point tw
nes, and private J. D. Barton, of this regiment, were greatly distinguished for their courage. Private J. B. Stinson, of same regiment, acting as courier to General Anderson, was wounded in three places at Sharpsburg, and there, as on every other battlefield, behaved most nobly. Colonel Bennet, of the Fourteenth North Carolina, commends Captains Jones, Freeman, Bell, Debun, and Weir, Lieutenants Liles, Mitchell, Harney, Shankle, Bevers, Threadgill, Meachem, Sergeants Jenkins, McLester, Corporal Crump, privates McGregor, Beasley, Odell, and Morgan. The Second North Carolina, after the death of the gallant and accomplished Tew, was commanded by Captain Roberts, since resigned. The Thirtieth North Carolina, after the fall of its gallant Colonel, was commanded by Major Sillers, a brave and meritorious officer. I much regret that the officers of these two regiments have declined to present the names of those specially distinguished for coolness and courage. The Thirteenth North Caro

I had for several days been urging Judge Crump to allow me to draw a few thousand dollars in gold to pay off the escort, they having faithfully discharged that duty for over a month. He was unwilling to assas the acting Secretary of the Treasury, with the full power of the head of that department. I was personally acquainted with Colonel William Preston Johnston, Judge Crump, and Paymaster Semple, all of whom I met in the parlor. Colonel J.
