Our loss in killed, wounded, and the railroad about a mile to the south of the railroad bridge crossing the Neuse River, and on arriving at the railroad abundant evidences were manifest of a hastythe color-corporal. This fight, as at Kinston, was along the banks of the Neuse River. The rebels were posted in log fortifications on high ground, and had, itifteenth, the day after the battle. Homeward bound from Kinston, we take the Neuse road, said to be some thirteen miles nearer than the Trent road by which we cam
honor to inclose copies of the reports of Brig.-Generals Evans, Robertson, and Clingman, giving an account of the various affairs with the enemy in this vicinity, in their recent bridge-burning and pillaging expedition from Newbern. Brig.-Gen. Evans, with two thousand men, held them in check; at South-west Creek, beyond Kinston, on the thirteenth, and, on the fourteenth, delayed their advance for some time, and succeeded in withdrawing his force with small loss, to the left bank of the Neuse River, at Kinston. He held them at bay until the sixteenth, when they advanced on the opposite side of the river, and made an attack at Whitehall bridge about eighteen miles below Goldsboro, in which they were driven back by Gen Robertson with severe loss. Small reenforcements arrived from Petersburgh and Wilmington on the fifteenth, one regiment of which was placed in position to cover the railroad bridge over the Neuse, near this place.

nal account. Newbern, N. C., March 19. Friday afternoon, March thirteenth, just before dark, news came into camp that Belger's battery, the Fifth and Twenty-fifth Massachusetts, and some cavalry, had gone out on the Trent road, which lies along the Trent River, and leads to Kinston. Rebel scouts were seen in various directions. Saturday, 14th.--At dawn a strong force under Gen. Petigru placed sixteen guns in position near a small fort opposite the town on the north, across the Neuse River. Two or three thousand infantry supported the artillery. They came into a clearing about sixty yards from the fort, and from my position I could see every movement both in the fort and among the rebels. As soon as two or three guns were in position, they commenced a rapid fire of shell and canister. After a few rounds, they sent in to Colonel Anderson of the Ninety-second New-York, (four hundred and fifty of whom held the place,) a flag of truce demanding a surrender, saying that a com

M. on Wednesday, eighth instant, for the purpose of relieving Washington, by an overland route. We marched that afternoon as far as New-Hope school-house, on the road toward Swift Creek, where a part of the command, through a mistake of orders, encamped for the night, while the advance pushed on to Little Swift Creek, four miles beyond. From this point our cavalry went to within a mile of Great Swift Creek, where they ascertained that the rebels had destroyed the bridge and barricaded the roads so it would be impossible to proceed. They also learned that the enemy were encamped there, about fifteen thousand strong, with batteries arranged to command the roads approaching in every direction. Finding it impossible to proceed by this route, we next attempted to gain the other side of the swamp

C., April 21, 1868. sir: I have the honor to make the following report of the part taken by two regiments of my brigade, during the recent expedition to Washington, N. C.: Friday, (seventeenth instant,) having received orders to cross the Neuse River with my command and take the advance, I proceeded on the road toward Washington as far as Purify's plantation, distant from Newbern seven miles, the road for a greater part of the distance being of the most horrid character. The column not having closed up, I placed Belger's battery, commanded by Lieutenant Simpson, in position, and my two regiments of infantry and a squadron of cavalry, commanded by Lieutenant Beecher, in line to support them. I then ordered the troops to bivouac for the night. At daylight on the morning of the eighteenth, formed the line and continued the march without interru
