Crawford, and immediately the spirit of Edwin Harris, so joyous, happy and bright in this life, winged its flight tace in the trenches. On December 14th Captain C. H. Dixon, of Company G, was killed, and Major C. Q. Petty, who had been appointed major in the place of Lieutenant-Colonel Davis, who succeeded Colonel Fleming, and eight men were wounded during a fierce mortar shelling to which we were subjected. We remained in the trenches unt

We could hear and see the shelling in front of Gettysburg, and were soon in range. Rodes' Division was actively engaged in a very short time. His old Alabama brigade, under Col. E. A. O'Neal, was shelled fiercely. Capt. Jas. T. Davis, of Co. D, was killed near me, and his brains scattered upon me. He was a brave, good man. Another shell exploded in my company and wounded Corporal J. H. Eason and private Lucius Williams, while we halted on a hilly woods. We passed the

rdered her sent down to the Yazoo River, about the middle of May, with directions to have her properly guarded, and every exertion made to finish her forthwith. These orders came to Brig. Gen. M. L. Smith, but the command of the post soon after passed to Major General Earl Van Dorn. From the navy department orders were sent to First Lieut Isaac N. Brown, C. S. N., to assume command of the Arkansas and finish the vessel without regard to expenditure of men or money. It was provided by President Davis that complete co-operation should be maintained by the Confederate army and navy in defence of Vicksburg, under Major General Van Dorn. The mouth of the Zazoo River was obstructed and guarded, while the armored ram was undergoing, for six weeks, the necessary work of preparation in safety, high up on the stream.. The delays and difficulties of completing the vessel for service, under all the circumstances of the case, taxed to the severest degree of energy, perseverance and hard labor

uns, as we were almost invisible in the darkness. They fired well, however, and their shot and shell fell thickly all around. One heavy shot entered our port side. * * We inflicted much damage on the passing fleet, as their vessels passed very close to us and offered fair targets. The engagement lasted about an hour, during which we lost eight men killed at the guns and eleven wounded. Wilson From an eye witness on the other side, the following testimony is appended: The fleet of Commodore Davis took up a station at about dark and opened on the batteries, to draw their fire. They succeeded admirably, and at an unexpected moment the fleet of large vessels struck into the channel and descended the river. As each boat arrived opposite the Arkansas, she slakened and poured her broadside into her. She answered as well as she could in such a storm of missiles, and put one or two balls into our vessels, but her main occupation was to be still and take it. Upwards of a a hundred guns

Flag Officer Farragut writes to Davis: I regret to say to you how much I was disappointed and chagrined at the results of Porter's fight this morning. It appey their skilful management of her in loosening their shorefast, whereby Porter slipped by her and ran ashore. Then Flag Officer Davis writes Farragut: I am also entirely dissapointed in the result of the morning's work, which last night seemed
