are coming in, and tell the objects of the expedition. It was to capture the 3d Georgia regiment, and to blow up the locks on the Dismal Swamp. They did neither, but lost the Adjutant of the brigade, fifteen officers severely wounded, many men killed, and a number taken prisoners. We took 1,500 pounds of coarse cannon powder, with which they intended to blow up the locks on the canal. The enemy's artillery was very badly served, and if this is the best they can do, we have but little to fear from them. Their forces were led by Gen. Reno, who had with him, amongst others, Col. Hawkins, of the New York Fire Zonaves, and Col. Fairchild. Georgia may will be proud in sending such soldiers as compose the 3d Georgia regiment to the field. In this command they have been called the "Fighting 3d;" but I did not believe it was in the nerves of man to stand such a storm of shot and shell as was rained upon them for five hours. Let all our troops go and do likewise. "Swamp Fox,"
