officers or their horses, and sending back the surplus, I was able to provide transportation for the twenty days rations and forage required by the orders of Major-General Sherman. On the 23d I marched, crossing Etowah River at the Island Ford, bivouacked in line and on Euharlee Creek, my left resting immediately in rear of Barnett's Mill, and my right on the Cedartown road. On the 24th, at 10 a. m., I moved by my right, crossing Euharlee Creek, not fordable, on the rickety bridge near Widow Smith's house, which, however, it was found necessary to repair before I could pass my artillery over it. Within two miles of this my march was delayed until late in the afternoon by General Stanley's column, which I found passing into the same road from the left, in front of me. I did not make more than two miles beyond this, the road being very difficult and blocked with the wagons, ambulances, and artillery of the troops which had preceded me. At 8 p. m., in the midst of a driving rainstorm

Second Brigade lost in killed, wounded, and missing, 168; the Third Brigade, killed, wounded, and missing, 203; total, 371. The greater portion of the wounded will recover. My thanks are due to General Baird for the readiness displayed to support me at all times, as well as for the support actually received. It is not X mere empty custom when I acknowledge the great assistance rendered during the hottest of the fight by Captain Edmonds, Ninety-fourth Ohio Volunteer Infantry; Capt. 4. W. Smith, Eighteenth U. S. Infantry, and Lieut. W. B. Roby, Thirty-third Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and Lieut. George H. Tracy, all of my staff. Dr. Solon Marks, chief surgeon of the division; Lieut. H. G. Litchfield, ordnance officer, and Lieut. W. R. Maize, in charge of ambulances, are deserving of mention for the faithful performance of their duties in their respective departments. Col. M. F.

It moved about one mile south of Renfroe's house, where it took position and threw up breast-works. September 2.-Command moved at 2 p. m., in rear of the Fourteenth Army Corps wagon train, to Jonesborough, where it arrived at 8 p. m. and bivouacked for the night in the south part of the town. September 6.-Nothing of importance having occurred up to this date, at 9 o'clock this a. m. the brigade was formed in one line running east and west, with the left resting on the railroad near Smith's house. At 10 o'clock two companies of the Thirty-third Ohio Volunteer Infantry were posted about a half mile to the front, on the main road. Soon the rebels appeared in our front and drove in our outposts and a part of our pickets proper. At this time Captain Prescott opened a section of his battery and held the rebels in check. Brisk skirmishing was kept up until about 2 o'clock, when the brigade fell back in good order to a position in the center of the town, from which it was withd

This fight has had a tendency to cement the regiments, and give them greater confidence in each other, and if it has no other effect, I hope it may enable us to count on each other in the great battle that is anticipated somewhere in this locality before many days. The discipline and health of the tr

. Brethren, don't go yet! He quoted from Calhoun, Clay, and Webster, to show the disastrous effects of separation in Church upon the State. S. V. Taylor, of Springfield, Va., thought he knew the disease of Virginia better than the Baltimore lawyers. He reviewed the work in Virginia, and plead for the life of the Church. This was to be preserved by immediate separation. Baltimore might suffer, but would not be slain. But we of Virginia must go! The discussion was continued by W. Smith and Col. McPherson, of Virginia, and W. R. Woodward, of Washington, each pleading for one year's delay as necessary to save the Conference. By a vote of 48 to 41, the Convention adjourned at about 12 P. M. Saturday--10 o' clock P. M. The Laymen's Convention passed the majority report about 7 P. M., on Saturday, by a vote of 91 to 32. All the Washington city and Alexandria, and part of the Baltimore delegates voted against it. Its provisions are: Separation, immed

ed upon the field, and among them the body of the lamented Colonel Lomax. An omnibus was sent out to get as many as possible, but this was captured by the enemy.--The Yankees advanced to the edge of a piece of woods, within about one thousand yards of our line, where they halted and remained at dusk. Gen Mahone's brigade was soon reinforced by several brigades which were drawn up a short distance in its rear, while a large force was placed near by in reserve.--President Davis, General Lee, Smith, Longstreet, Stuart, and other commanding Generals, were upon the ground at this point, showing that it was an important position in the affairs of the day. Thus matters stood at sundown. As no further attack was anticipated during the night, our troops prepared to bivouac on the field, in readiness for the events of to-day. Of course it is impossible at this time to chronicle but a small portion of the casualties and incidents. We give such as we have been able to obtain. The 12th V
