d. In the Senate, on the twenty-ninth, Mr. Wilson, from the committee of conference, made a report, which was opposed by Mr. Hale, Mr. Baker, and Mr. Sherman, and rejected. On motion of Mr. Wilson, the Senate insisted on its disagreement to the House amendment, and asked for another committee of conference. Mr. Wilson, Mr. Sherman, and Mr. McDougall were appointed conferees. The House agreed to a further conference, and appointed Mr. Blair, of Missouri, Mr. Kelley, of Pennsylvania, and Mr. Jackson, of Kentucky, conferees on its part. In the Senate, on the first of August, Mr. Wilson from the second committee of conference, reported that the committee of conference on the disagreeing votes of the two Houses on the bill providing for the better organization of the military establishment, had agreed to recommend to their respective Houses, That the House recede from its amendments to the Senate bill, and agree to it, with amendments; and the report was concurred in — yeas, twenty-s

it) of making an attack in force from the left, for the delay in sending the orders made such an attack impossible with any reasonable chance of success. And in this connection it is not improper in me to state that a map, made by the rebel General Jackson's topographical engineer, has fallen into the hands of our officers since General Hooker has been in command, from which it is apparent that the enemy's position could not have been carried by any force less than that recommended by me on thn to carry the point at the extreme left of the ridge in the rear of the town, and thereby enable our troops to storm and carry their fortifications?

Although Hill was not present all the time, he was operating with Longstreet, and by his orders made certain demonstrations in North Carolina, about the first of April, with the object of causing troops to be detached from Suffolk and other points. Having accomplished his mission, he discontinued the siege of Little Washington on the fifteenth, and despatched his troops to Suffolk. Longstreet himself may have joined Lee and Jackson at the crisis of Chancellorsville, or soon after, although his servants and horses fell into our hands near Suffolk, on the fourth of May. Doubtless one division, or a portion thereof, succeeded in reaching the Rapidan, in spite of the bold operations of Stoneman. The relative strength of Hooker and Lee is given by the New York Tribune of March twenty-six, 1864, in an editorial on the Richmond Campaigns, as follows: Hooker, one hundred and twenty-three thousand fighting men present for

It will be held in readiness either to support the attack on Centreville, or to move in the direction of Fairfax Station, according to circumstances, with its right flank towards the left of Ewell's command, more or less distant, according to the nature of the country and attack.

e fight. Of officers and men twelve hundred and six were taken. The rest were killed, wounded, or escaped. Of the number not taken there were probably four hundred, and one hundred and fifty or two hundred escaped; fifty or sixty killed and wounded. The enemy were all cavalry and mounted infantry, but all fought on foot, every fourth man holding four horses, and his force consisted of six brigades, under Major-General Van Dorn, Brigadier-Generals French, Armstrong, Crosby, Martin, and Jackson. Infantry had no chance to escape after the fight once began. Prisoners of war! I had supposed that soldiers taken in fair battle were treated as gentlemen, at least as human beings; but such is not the practice in this cursed land. I will state simply the facts. We were taken in the afternoon, after four hours fighting, and marched fourteen miles to Columbia.

As soon as formed, we were ordered to advance and engage the enemy. We advanced but a short distance be-thirds of the Forty-fourth Tennessee crossed the road.

Also, I return my thanks to Dr. John Gannaway, who volunteered his services and rendered himself useful in a high degree. I think I may say that the

I immediately gave Brigadier-General Vaughn a detachment of about one hundred men, and directed him to intercept and, if possible, to destroy the party. He succeeded in dispersing them, killing several, and taking among the prisoners a Captain. During the pursuit Bryson himself was killed. On the twenty-seventh of October Cheatham's division, commanded during the expedition by Brigadier-General Jackson, reached Athens, and by this accession my force, before so weak as to be entirely inadequate for a decided movement against the enemy at London, was strengthened to such an extent as would have enabled me to actively assume the offensive; but the enemy, informed doubtless by disloyal citizens of the arrival of these reinforcements, evacuated London on the night of the same day. On the twenty-eighth of October I sent Brigadier-General Vaughn, with a force of cavalry, across the L
