rt. Hon. James A. Seddon, Secretary of War, telegraphs, on the 9th of May, 1863: Foster, with his own and part of Hunter's forces, is believed to have returned to North Carolina. More reinforcements to General Pemberton are indispensable. Is of district commanders and from other reasons, that there has been really but little reduction of the command of Major-General Hunter. General Walker, commanding at Pocotaligo, reports that on yesterday the outposts of the enemy in his front hadil. I was informed, however, through your letter of the 10th of June that— Northern papers report the reduction of Hunter's forces by sending troops to the Gulf. If this be true, you will, with such force as you can properly withdraw from youh destructive raids as devastated the Combahee some days ago. Thus far, however, I can see no evidence of reduction. General Hunter was at Hilton Head on the 8th instant; his troops hold the same positions as heretofore, and apparently in the same f
sive line will be in rear of the Combahee. Wheeler's cavalry will guard country thence to the Savannah River. All quiet here. No report from General Hood since 28th of November. G. T. Beauregard. He now ordered that the Savannah River Railroad bridge and trestle-work on the Carolina side should be immediately and thoroughly destroyed, and that Generals Wheeler and Taliaferro should be instructed to that effect. Through Captain Courtney, at Hardeeville, he also communicated with Commodore Hunter, and pointed out the necessity of commanding the Savannah River by his gunboat, as long as possible, from the enemy's battery to a point as far up the stream as navigation would permit. During the night of the 20th, and in strict obedience to General Beauregard's instructions, Savannah was successfully evacuated. President Davis was informed of the fact as follows: Pocotaligo, S. C., Dec. 21st, 1864. General Hardee reports to-day from Hardeeville that evacuation of Savanna
the wharf at Mobile. Could they not be ordered here until required on the Mississippi? Major-General Hunter has been relieved of the command of the Federal troops in this Department by Brigadier-Ge that on or about the 2d ultimo an expedition set on foot by your predecessor in command, Major-General Hunter, entered the Combahee River, in South Carolina, seized and carried away a large number ofops, will proceed up the river, if there are no enemy's batteries to prevent it, and join Flag-officer Hunter. Otherwise to try the passage to sea by Augustin Creek. Fire Fly.—Proceed up the river to join Flag-officer Hunter. Georgia.—The General commanding will give notice of the time of dismantling Forts Jackson and Lee, when the guns will be spiked and shots jammed in the guns. The crrom the enemy's upper battery to as high up as navigation will permit. G. T. Beauregard. Corn. Hunter, on board of Macon, near Parysburg, S. C., care of Capt. Courtney, at Hardeeville. Tel
