is time the entire picket was arouse, and Cussons drew off some sixty or seventy yards into the woods, when he lay down and waited until the enemy had formed into squads, and carried the pursuit half a mile beyond him. He then quietly ranked up the river, and passed around them, reaching our camp about sunrise, evidently none the worse for the night's adventure. In the fight of Wednesday, our forces look the remain for of the picket (one company) prisoners, and from them we learn that two were killed and the other mortally wounded. One of the killed was orderly sergeant of the comp Mr. Hartley was O. S. of the ville Guards" Though a Canadian was devoted to the Southern evinced a noble order to be useful able to the country. We all dee the sad but gallant end of this you and accomplished soldier. Cussons several times within the enemy's lines that night, and from the important information which he collects, has rendered himself invaluable to Gens Smith and Whiting.
the Engineer and Superintendent, was equally anxious to repair it in the shortest possible time.--The larger portion of the railroad hands had fled in every direction on the approach of Gen Sherman's army, and another part on the appearance of Gens Smith and Grierson. The difficulties encountered in collecting hands in a country so completely desolated by the enemy will be easily understood.--Notwithstanding this an engine was run over the road Sherman had destroyed in 29½ days after the work act, the Mobile and Ohio road was in working order four days before the Selma road was ready to connect with it. As late as last week the Southern road was not yet in running order. In addition to the destruction effected by Sherman's Army Gens Smith and Grierson passed over thirty-two miles of the Mobile and Ohio road on the prairies, destroying all culverts, warehouses, and water stations. They also tore up the track at intervals and bent the rails. On this part of the road there is no
The Trans-Mississippi. The Atlanta Appeal, of the 2d inst., has the following encouraging view of affairs in the trans-Mississippi Department, written before the report of Steele's surrender to Price: If our intelligence from the West be true, and we have no reason the doubt it, Gens Smith and Price are doing their work up nobly on the west side of the Mississippi river. The campaign of Banks in Louisiana has proved a complete failure, and he is represented as having been driven on the north side of Red river, and is seeking refuge at Natchez, on this side of the Mississippi. This leaves all West Louisiana free from the enemy, and will play hob with those Yankees who have emigrated thither with the view of raising cotton and sugar. They will be compelled to give up their farms, of course, and re-emigate to the North. Gen Magruder seems to have no foe to contend with in Texas, and Gen Smith will remain idle during the spring and summer, as it will be impossible for L
as already known to our authorities: It is no longer improper to speak of the important movements that have been progressing in this department during the past two days, as they are now fully accomplished. A large, portion of the troops at Bermuda Hundred, ruder Gen Butler, have been transferred, under command of Gen Smith, to the Army of the Potomac. The troops were sent in transports, with great celerity, up York river to White House — the new base of supplies for Gen Grant. Gens Smith and Broo passed up yesterday.--Gen Gillmore remains with Gen Butler at Bermuda Hundred, as also Gens Ames and Wild. Large quantities of supplies have been sent up to White House. Another account, says, that fifteen vessels, laden with supplies, had called for the White House. Grant's wounded — Running off negroes from Port Royal. All the Yankee wounded from Fredericksburg have been curried to Washington. A letter from Port Royal, Carolina county, dated the 28th, says:
