etween Savannah and the river, that General Beauregard was compelled to ascend the stream as far as the bridge—a distance of some fifteen miles— before he could safely take the train, which he did on the 10th, at 1 A. M., being accompanied by Colonels Otey and Roman and Major James B. Eustis. At 5 P. M. on that day he was again in Charleston, and the next morning caused the following order to be published: Headquarters, Military division of the West, Charleston, Dec. 11th, 1864. Genera 2. In urgent cases district and subdistrict commanders are authorized to communicate directly with these Headquarters, transmitting immediately copies of said correspondence to their proper Commanders. By command of General Beauregard. Jno. M. Otey, A. A. G. The outlook for the immediate future of the Confederacy had become very alarming.

This indicated great anxiety on the part of the President; and though he knew that the alleged danger of an attack by General Thomas's army on Danville, at that time, was purely imaginary, General Beauregard took immediate steps to obey Mr. Davis's behest. He was on the point of starting, when he received from Colonel Otey, his Adjutant-General, at Greensboroa, the news of the capitulation of General Lee and his army on that day.
