you reenforcements whenever I can. Gen. Robert E. Lee, having succeeded to the chief command of the Rebel army, had, in counsel with the master spirits of the Rebellion, at length resolved on striking a decisive blow. To this end, reenforcements had been quietly called in from all available quarters, swelling the Rebel Army of Virginia, including Jackson's corps, summoned from the Valley, to not far from 70,000 men. In order to mask this concentration, Whiting's division, consisting of Hood's Texas brigade and his own, had been sent off from Richmond to Jackson; to whom also the brigade of Lawton had been ordered up from the South. When all things were ripe, Jackson moved, by order, rapidly and secretly from tie Valley to Ashland, facing our extreme right, whence he was directed to advance June 25. so as to flank our right, holding Mechanicsville. Moving on at 3 next morning, June 26. he was directed to connect With Gen. Branch, immediately south of the Chickahominy, who
it was easily repulsed. As there was no time to be lost, Gen. D. R. Jones, with two brigades, was sent in at once; while Hood, with two others, following a mountain foot-path, attempted to turn our right; and Wilcox, with two more, making a circuital line of battle; but, soon finding itself confronted by a heavier force of the enemy, was brought to a stand. Meantime, Hood charged in turn, with a fresh division of Longstreet's corps, which had marched through the Gap that day and been sent by Lee to the relief of Jackson, now clearly outnumbered. Hood's famous Texas brigade and that of Law rushed forward with great intrepidity, repulsing Kearny's most advanced regiments, taking 1 gun, 4 flags, and 100 prisoners. Darkness arrested the conediately ordered an advance; which Longstreet supported by pushing forward his whole command against our center and left. Hood's two brigades again led the charge, followed by the divisions of Evans, R. H. Anderson, and Wilcox, sustained by those of

Hood's thin division, which had confronted us at evening, had been withdrawn during the night, and replaced by Lawton's and Trimble's brigades of Ewell's division, unde Ricketts and Meade had pushed the Rebel line back across the corn-field and the road, into the woods beyond, and was following with eager, exulting cheers. But Hood's division, somewhat refreshed, had by this time returned to the front, backed by the brigades of Ripley, Colquitt. Garland (now under Col. McRae), and D. R. Jone instantly crossed — had been sent forward by Lee to the aid of Jackson; while Walker's division had been hurried across from their as yet unassailed right. Again Hood's brigade was withdrawn from the front, while the fresh forces under Walker and McLaws advanced with desperate energy, seconded by Early on their left. Sedgwick w

By night, Bragg was ready for the onset — a division of longstreet's men, under Hood, being in position on his extreme right; though Longstreet himself did not come ried without heavy loss. Polk was in chief command on the Rebel right, as was Hood on the left; and the former was proceeding Sept. 19. to execute Bragg's orderack at this point, though for some time persisted in, was a conceded failure. Hood, holding the Rebel left, having cannonaded in the morning with no advantage, thrds's right; thus opening a gap in our front, into which Longstreet at once threw Hood's command, supported by an advance of Buckner on our right flank. The charge mpting to fill with three light brigades the gap made by Wood's withdrawal, when Hood's charging column poured into it, striking Davis on the right, and Brannan on thir bayonets. Longstreet was now here, in immediate command of his own corps — Hood having been wounded and had his leg amputated on the field — with McLaws's, Pres<

Forrest's last raid captures Athens, Ala. is chased ocamp before Richmond, could hardly realize that Hood was moving on Nashville, which seemed to me, saear Kingston, Ga., menacing his flank and rear, Hood seemed to linger on the Tennessee; possibly deemeet him at some point south of Duck river. Hood's army was organized in three corps, under Maj.r alone. Exasperated rather than disconcerted, Hood threw heavy masses against the lost breastworksth 2 guns; losing 30 killed and 175 wounded.

It is true that Hood's movement on Nashville had withdrawn the main obstacle from his path; yet it warvice, and yet leaving enough to vanquish the old opposing forces of the whole — Hood's army — it brings those who sat in darkness to see great light.

But, o

Wilson's cavalry command, after the expulsion of Hood from Tennessee, was collected at Eastport, Miss. (the head of steamboat navigation on the lower Tennessee); whither Gen. Thomas at length proceeded, Feb. 23, 18rsion in favor of Canby; but Wilson persuaded his chief to let him take all the cavalry he could readily muster — Cheatham's movement eastward, with the remains of Hood's force, having rendered disposable nearly our entire force on the Tennessee. Wilson was thus enabled to set out with nearly 15,000 men, whereof 13,000 were mountMobile bay. During the year, Gen. Dick Taylor crossed the Mississippi and assumed command of the Confederate forces in Alabama. At length, after the overthrow of Hood, in Tennessee, the 16th was returned to Gen.Canby; who now proceeded, in concert with Wilson's demonstration from the north on central Alabama, to attempt the redu
