The Daily Dispatch: September 19, 1861., [Electronic resource], Retreat of the first Georgia Regiment from Carrick's Ford — a Thrilling Narrative. (search)
Retreat of the first Georgia Regiment from Carrick's Ford — a Thrilling Narrative. The Virginia correspondent of the Charleston Mercury writes a deeply interesting letter descriptive of the engagement between Garnett's and McClellan's a forces at Carrick's Ford, and subsequent events: The concluding portion relates to the perilous retreat of a portion of the First Georgia Regiment across to Monterey. It is a graphic picture, and we transfer it to our columns. The writer says: The foe was baffled of his prey ! But seven companies of the 1st Georgia Regiment, outflanked by them, had been cut off by the rapid advance of the Indiana line, and were driven from the road and up the mountain into a wilderness where human foot had never trod before. Without food, with scarcely a blanket to cover them, and no shelter from rain or wind or cold but the dark foliage overhead and around on an untrodden mountain range, without maps or guide, these brave Georgians took up the line

truly, Jas. Bedpath. I send you several copies of my paper--The Pine and Palm. I will continue to send it to you and to Mr. Jordan if you desire it. Jas. Redpith. Such is the letter, the original of which is in the possession of Augustine J. Smith, Esq. tobacco of this city, and who has sadly allowed us to make this copy. Now, what does it mean? Are we to infer that Butter was stealing negroes down in the peninsula to colonize Hayti? Is Redpath a colleague of Butler, McClellan, Wool, Ro and Fremont — all alike acting under the commands of the illinois Ape Who can doubt it with this testimony before his ever "May every tap of your drums call up freemen from slaves," says Redpath, meaning, "steal every slave that come in your way, send him here and we will ship him to Hayti." That is the noble work to which the Federal soldier is called, and Redpath "yearns" to be engaged in. Thus it seems that the present war, as raged by the North, is but a John Brown raid
s with the "rebels." Our battery was not "silenced."--they did not "wait to give battle," but as our skirmishers emerged from the woods and Major Terrill gave orders in a loud tone to "shoot down the cannonries and horses," they did not even discharge a piece that they had "in position" but fled in great confusion. While our artillery engaged their battery our boys lay quietly on the ground and listened to the music of shell and shot as they flew over their heads, but did them no damage. McClellan in his official report, admits, that they had 2,000 men — their loss was at least fifteen killed and six prisoners. You will probably receive an account of the taking of Hall's Hill in which two companies of our regiment (the "Barboursville Guard," and "Boomerangs,") and a detachment of the "Maryland Line" supported two pieces of the Washington Artillery, drove back a superior force of the enemy, killed a number and took eight prisoners.

Times contains the following interesting item in connection with the Yankee General, McClellan, which we have never before seen published: We learn from a reliable source that two weeks before McClellan was tendered the commission of Major-General by Lincoln, he was trying to secure a position in the Confederate Army--that his feelMcClellan was tendered the commission of Major-General by Lincoln, he was trying to secure a position in the Confederate Army--that his feelings and sympathies were all for the South, but the temptation of superseding Gen. Scott was too much for his principles. The affair at Hatteras Inlet. The Memphis Appeal says that it learns that a British war steamer was off Hatteras and witnessed the entire bombardment, and reports, as a fact coming under her own knowledge, that the Federals, in their attempt to land troops, not only lost the guns and fuel of the Harriet Lane, but also lost two surf boats and sixty men drowned.

The following is the official dispatch from General McCall to General M General Halleck's dispatch reads as follows: Hdqrs. Department of the West, St. Louis, Dec. 19, 1861. General G. B. McClellan, Commander in-Chief of United States Army: Gen. Pope's expedition successfully cut off the enemy's camp neaf the Osage river. The Second engagement. Washington, Dec. 20. --The following dispatch was received by Gen. McClellan this afternoon. It is glorious news, and created quite a stir in the Cabinet: Headquarters, St. Louis, Dec. 20, 1861. To Major General G. B. McClellan, Major General commanding the Army: A part of Gen. Pope's forces, under Col. J. C. Davis and Major Marshall, surprised another camp of the enemy, on the afternoon of the 18th, at Milford, a little no
A winter campaign promised. --The Cincinnati Commercial, of the 12th, announces that the Federal programme for the war is a winter campaign. It claims to have evidence to believe that the opinions of "a decisive campaign" is "contemplated by Gen. McClellan," and that "the hour is at hand," and adds, very truly, that the "Northern people have been so often disappointed in their expectations that they were about to witness great forward movements by our troops, that they will probably be disappointed again when they hear that our armies are actually in motion." There is an irony about this very refreshing.
he strength of Floyd's promises, was consequently involved in some pecuniary difficulties, from which an upright and honorable character and persevering industry have since entirely relieved him. He sold the establishment in Bristol, where his rifle was manufactured, to his brother-in-law, who has since carried it on and furnished a considerable quantity of the arms to the Government. He was, subsequent to this transaction, connected with the Illinois Central Railroad, in company with General McClellan. His position was that of President of the Land Office. Flag-Officer L. M.
