he rebel battery in our rear. We captured great numbers of prisoners, and sent them to the rear without guards, as we deemed the pursuit of the enemy of greater importance ..... I cannot give too much praise to Captain Powers, Company H, Lieutenant Smith, Company K, Lieutenant Gooding, Company A, and Second Lieutenant Moser, Company G, for their assistance, and for the gallant manner in which they encouraged their men up the side of the mountain, and charging the enemy's works right up to thnever driven from other points, rallied around this battery, and defended it with desperation. It cost a struggle to take it; but we finally succeeded, and the colors of the Sixty-fifth Ohio were the first planted upon the yet smoking guns. Captain Smith, of my regiment, was placed in charge of the captured battery, which consisted of 5 guns, 3 caissons, and 17 horses. Report of Captain E. P. Bates, one Hundred and Twenty-Fifth Ohio. Perceiving that the ridge across which my regiment ex

I sent the train back at once for more clothing, and on its return, just before reaching Knoxville, the quartermaster in charge, Captain Philip Smith, filled the open spaces in the wagons between the bows and load with fodder and hay, and by this clever stratagem passed it through the town safe and undisturbed as a forage train. On Smith's arrival we lost no time ill issuing the clothiSmith's arrival we lost no time ill issuing the clothing, and when it had passed into the hands of the individual soldiers the danger of its appropriation for general distribution, like the preceding invoice, was very remote. General Foster had decided by this time to move his troops to Dandridge for the twofold purpose of threatening the enemy's left and of getting into a locality where we could again gather subsistence from the French Broad region. Accordingly we began an advance on the 15th of January, the cavalry having preceded us some t

the bill was postponed until Monday next, and made the special order in the morning hour. Mr. Villere, of La., offered a resolution that the President be requested to furnish this House with a copy of the proceedings of the Court of Inquiry in the case of Gen. Mansfield Lovell. Mr. Welsh, of Miss., introduced a bill to more effectually enforce General Order No. 105, issued in July, 1863, in reference to officers and employees in the Commissary and Quartermaster's Department. Mr. Smith, of N. C., introduced a bill amendatory of the act to put an end to substitution, approved January 6th, 1864, so that the bill shall not apply to producers who, previous to January 1st, 1864, were engaged in raising subsistence for man. The bill was referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. Mr. Miles, of S.

Thunder, had effected their escape the night before. The building in which they were confined was on Cary street, directly opposite Castle Thunder, although all persons confined in both are under the supervision of the same officers. From Lieut. Wilburn who was on duty at the time, we obtained the following list of those who made good their exit from the prison: Wm. C. Williams, Frank Shepherd, K. Lent, John Criner, Wallace Edson, H. H. Parker, Henry Bradburg, G. W. Danner, Geo. Scott, Philip Smith, Chas. Williams, Patrick McAnally, Arthur Hill, Geo. Gaillard, Chas Smith, Wm. May, Thos. Brown, and Mann Clark. Their mode of escape was by removing some bricks from under the sill of the door to the second story of the building. Running in a line with the floor of this story is a wide platform, on which a sentinel is constantly posted; and when we consider that their means of egress was so near the guardsman as to almost scrape his feet, it does not speak well for his vigilance that t
