o fall down the river for the night; retiring next morning, the village was shelled by them until abandoned, and then burnt. Gen. Burnside next concentrated his forces at Hatteras Inlet, for an attack on Newbern, at the junction of the Neuse and Trent rivers, near Pamlico Sound, and the most important seaport of North Carolina. Corn. Goldsborough having been relieved, Commander Rowan directed the fleet. Leaving Hatteras in the morning, March 12. the expedition came to about sunset at Slocum's creek, on the south side of the river, 18 miles below Newbern, where a landing was effected next morning, and the troops pushed forward, so fast as ready, to within a mile and a half of the Rebel defenses; the gunboats moving up the river in advance of the troops, and shelling the road whereon they marched. No resistance was encountered by land; but the fleet found the channel of the Neuse obstructed, half way up, by 24 vessels sunk in the channel, several torpedoes, and a number of iron-
gwick's division, but not debarled. Our gunboats took quiet possession of the little village at the Point, and hoisted our flag over it; no white man appearing to greet their arrival. During the night, one of our vedettes was shot through the heart, from the wood that fringed the plain whereon our troops were encamped, though no hostile force had appeared. Next morning, however, a regiment or two of the enemy was descried and shelled from our gunboats ; whereupon Gen. Dana, by order of Gen. Slocum, hastened the landing of his men and horses ; while the 16th, 31st, and 32d New York, with thle 95th and 96th Pennsylvania, were pushed forward into the woods in our front, with orders to drive out the few Rebel scouts who were supposed to be skulking there. They soon found themselves engaged with a far larger force than they had expected, whereof Gen. Whiting's Texan division and Wade Hampton's South Carolina Legion formed a part; and who, with every advantage of position and knowledge

Manning, who led Walker's own brigade, being severely wounded, and his brigade driven back. Doubleday, on our farther right, held firmly; and it seemed settled that, while either party could repel a charge on this part of the line, neither could afford to make one. But now Franklin had come up with his fresh corps, and formed on the left; Slocum, commanding one of his divisions, was sent forward toward the center; while Smith, with the other, was ordered to retake the ground that had been so long and so hotly contested. It was no sooner said than done. Smith's regiments, cheering, went forward on a run, swept through the corn-field and the woods, cleared them in ten minutes, and held them. Their rush was so sudden and unexpected that their loss was comparatively small; and the ground thus retaken was not again lost. Nearer t

The 11th (Howard's) and 12th (Slocum's) corps moved up the river, but carefully avoiding observation froo as to outflank ours, while Sykes vainly attempted to connect with Slocum (12th corps) on his right. Gen. Warren, who was superintending Syk earthworks and batteries for a flank attack; but he was assured by Slocum and Howard that they were equal to any emergency. Thus our army avalry, perhaps 1,000 strong, with permission to call on Howard and Slocum fir aid; when he was thunderstruck by tidings that Howard's corps wemaining division (Whipple's) supporting Berry's, as Williams's (of Slocum's corps) supported Birney's.

Slocum's, was left to cover, while the rest of the army should move by the right southward; the 4th ing in Atlanta, 20 miles distant. They might have proceeded from an attack on that stronghold by Slocum — which was most unlikely — but the more probable supposition pointed to the truth, that Hood, cre marched off eastward to Covington. The news was fully confirmed on the 4th by a courier from Slocum, who had entered the city unopposed on the morning after Hood's withdrawal. Sherman thereupon r28. Gen. Thomas to Nashville to look out for Rebel demonstrations across the Tennessee. Leaving Slocum's 20th corps to hold Atlanta, he had impelled the bulk of his army northward ; and, when French
