in a bottle strongly corked. It required but a comparatively small force of the enemy to hold it there. On the 12th General Kautz with his cavalry was started on a raid against the Danville railroad, which he struck at Coalfield, Powhatan, and Chula Stations, destroying them, the railroad track, two freight trains, and one locomotive, together with large quantities of commissary and other stores; thence crossing to the South Side road, struck it at Wilson's, Wellville, and Blacks and Whites Stations, destroying the road and station-houses; thence he proceeded to City Point, which he reached on the 18th. On the 19th of April, and prior to the movement of General Butler, the enemy, witb a land force under General Hoke and an iron-clad ram, attacked Plymouth, N. C., commanded by General H. W. Wessells, and our gun-boats there, and after severe fghting the place was carried by assault, and the entire garrison and armament captured. The gun-boat Southfield was sunk and the Miami d
a special train to bring General Corse's brigade to his relief, who were then en route for this place on foot. He had telegraphed to send platform cars, on which to load the artillery, for that of it he stood particularly in need, as he had none, and that i<*> we had not that kind of cars, to construct them, (by cutting the tops off of box-cars, I suppose.) We were required to accompany this train as a guard, with orders to return at the earliest opportunity. We jumped aboard, and at White's Station, about nine miles from here, came in sight of the rear of General Corse's brigade, and at Germantown caught up with the head of the column. Here we took aboard the Ninety-third Illinois, commanded by Colonel O'Meara, and three pieces of artillery belonging to Captain Cheeney's Illinois battery, and, with orders from General Corse to proceed cautiously, as the enemy were known to be between us and Colliersville, then only nine miles distant, continued on our way.

Forrest's defeat of Sturgis at Brice's cross-roads (June 10th, 1864). by E. Hunn Hanson, Adjutant, 4TH Missouri cavalry, U. S. V., A. D. C. Waring's Brigade. In May, 1864, in order to protect his long line of communication, General Sherman ordered an expedition from Memphis to defeat Forrest's cavalry, then in northern Mississippi, and thereby prevent its descent upon his line of advance. Accordingly, on the 1st of June, a small but well-organized force began its march from White's Station, near Memphis. On the following day General Samuel D. Sturgis was placed in command. Some weeks earlier he had commanded an expedition sent out from Memphis to intercept Forrest on his march southward after his capture of Fort Pillow and the massacre of its garrison, but had been unable to do so. On the 8th of June, before the enemy had been met, Sturgis, although he had supplies sufficient for eleven days, desired to give up the expedition, but was dissuaded. The cavalry was commanded by
