ack or a more stubborn resistance. Cleburne's horse bogged down and threw him, so that he got out with great difficulty. He was on the right, and Trigg's battery tried in vain there to maintain its fire against several Federal batteries opposing. Under the terrible fire from Sherman's impregnable line, the Sixth Mississippi and Twenty-third Tennessee suffered a quick and bloody repulse, though the Sixth Mississippi made charge after charge. Its two field-officers, Colonel Thornton and Major Lowry, were both wounded. The impetuous courage and tenacity of this magnificent regiment deserved a better fate. The fighting had been murderous on the left also. The Fifteenth Arkansas had lost its major, J. T. Harris, and many good men. The Twenty-fourth Tennessee had borne itself with steady valor, and the Second Tennessee had been terribly cut up by the iron storm from the hill-top. Just as Cleburne's line first went forward with loud cheers, General Johnston came up from where he h
he facts of this unfortunate affair, says the Constitutionalist, leaving the press and public sentiment of South-Carolina to assign the proper position to all parties concerned. It was at best a melancholy spectacle to see the sons of our gallant sister State turning their backs upon the region threatened by the invader's tread, and if there is any circumstance to palliate their conduct which we have not stated, we shall be glad to make it public. --Augusta Constitutionalist, April 13. Lowry's Point batteries on the Rappahannock River, Va., were evacuated by the rebels this day.--New York Commercial, April 18. The Nassau (N. P.) Guardian of this day contains a complete list of all the arrivals at that place from confederate ports since the commencement of the National blockade. It is not with the view of expatiating on the effectiveness of the blockade, says the Guardian, that we have compiled this table, but to show to our merchants the importance of the trade that ha
April 14. This day the Potomac flotilla visited the town of Urbana, Va. A boat's crew was sent ashore there, but when within a few yards of the beach, they were fired upon from the rifle-pits. No one was injured. The boat received several bullets in her hull. The Jacob Bell being the nearest in, immediately opened fire upon the rebels, which scattered them in every direction. After this, the flotilla proceeded on its voyage toward Fredericksburgh. Arriving opposite Lowry's Point batteries, they commenced from the whole fleet to shell the works and fortifications, driving out the pickets who had occupied it since its evacuation. After the shelling, the boats' crews landed and proceeded to burn some one hundred and fifty plank and log houses, used by the rebels as quarters, which were entirely consumed. After which, the boats returned to their ships, loaded with blankets, quilts, medicines, and muskets, left by the rebels in their flight. The fleet thence proceeded to
June 14. Capt. Craven, of the United States steam sloop Brooklyn, sent a marine guard and party of seamen, numbering in all about one hundred men, under command of Lieut. Lowry, to Bayou Sara, Louisiana, for the purpose of destroying the telegraph apparatus and cutting the wires. After an absence of two hours, Lieut. Lowry returned to the ship, having accomplished his work. (Doc. 133.) General James H. Van Alen, Military Governor of Yorktown, Va., issued an order directing that all Lieut. Lowry returned to the ship, having accomplished his work. (Doc. 133.) General James H. Van Alen, Military Governor of Yorktown, Va., issued an order directing that all negroes in his department, contraband or otherwise, should be under the immediate charge and control of the Provost-Marshal--that they be allowed full liberty, etc. Captain Atkison, of company C, of the Fiftieth Indiana volunteers, with twenty men, captured six thousand two hundred pounds of powder at Sycamore Mills, thirty miles below Nashville, Tenn., and five miles north of the Cumberland River. The company also stopped at Fort Zollicoffer, and brought off a gun.
cond division, Twenty-third army corps, I need not add to what I have said. His excellent management of the troops upon three fields, and his personal bravery, have attached him to his men as few commanders are attached. His staff, Captains Gallup and Sheldon and Lieutenant Pearson, are worthy followers of their brave leader. Colonel W. E. Hobson, of the Thirteenth Kentucky, upon whom the command of the brigade at times devolved, behaved always as became the hero of Huff's Ferry. Lieutenant-Colonel Lowry, of the One Hundred and Seventh Illinois; Major Sherwood, of the One Hundred and Eleventh Ohio; and Major Wheeler, of the Twentythird Michigan, each commanding, all carried themselves nobly. I must mention the name of ex-Colonel Joseph J. Kelly, of the One Hundred and Seventh Illinois, whose resignation had just been accepted, and who intended to start for his home in Illinois the day of the fight at Huff's Ferry, but would not leave while the regiment he had so long commanded was

re than half concealed. Bragg concentrated his Crawfish Spring. this is from a sketch made by the author, in May, 1866. the Spring is really the outlet of a large subterranean brook, that here flows out at the foot of a rocky, wooded hill, whose summit is about fifty feet above. It was on the estate of the Widow Gordon, whose fine brick mansion stood near. There Lieutenant Murdoch, a gallant young officer, wounded in the battle of Chickamauga, died. Near the Spring was the house of Lowry, the second chief of the Cherokees. Here was the hospital of the Army of the Cumberland at the time of the battle of Chickamauga. army on the eastern side of the Chickamauga, and, early on the morning of the 18th, when the advance of Longstreet's corps, under Hood, was coming up, he massed his troops heavily on his right, attacked Minty and Wilder, who fought gallantly at the bridges, and pushed the National left back to the Lafayette and Rossville road. Early in the evening, Hood, with a
that there are about 300 men in Tishomingo County, who belonged to Colonel Reynolds' Twenty-sixth Mississippi, a war regiment, which was surrendered at Donelson, who are desirous of uniting themselves with the war regiment now being raised by Colonel Lowry. I would suggest that these men be organized into three companies. There are only four commissioned officers among these men present and fit for duty. These might be assigned to the three companies with the same rank they now hold; the oth in the companies might be filled by elections, allowing the four officers above named, of course, the privilege of promotion, by election, if the men desire it. When organized I see no reason why the three companies should not be attached to Colonel Lowry's regiment. Should any of the other officers become fit for duty, the Government can provide for them in the future. No other mode seems to me of making the services of these men available at this time, and I therefore recommend the cours

give time for the arrival, on that part of the field, of the Eighth and Ninth Arkansas regiments under Colonel Bancum, detached by General Govan to the assistance of the cavalry. This little body met the foremost of the Federal troops as they were reaching the prolongation of Granberry's line, and, charging gallantly, drove them back, and preserved the Texans from an attack in flank which must have been fatal. Before the Federal left could gather to overwhelm Bancum and his two regiments, Lowry's brigade, hurried by General Cleburne from its position as left of his second line, came to join them, and the two, formed abreast of Granberry's brigade, stopped the advance of the enemy's left, and successfully resisted its subsequent attacks. The contest of the main body of the Fourth Corps with Granberry's brigade was a very fierce one. General Cleburne's report. The Federal troops approached within a few yards of the Confederates, but at last were forced to give way by their stor

maintop of the Pawnee, who told his men, while laying off in the boat, that every man must die on his thwart sooner than leave a man behind, and when the flagstaff of his boat was shot away and the ensign fell, he (although suffering from a gun-shot wound in the thigh) seized it in his hand and bravely waved it over his head. A copy of the surgeon's report of casualties is herewith enclosed. The wounded have been removed to the hospital. I also enclose copies of orders addressed to Lieutenant Lowry. Lieutenant Chaplin's report of the affair is not yet ready. When it is presented I shall forward a copy for the information of the department.
