Gen. E . (search)
Address of Gen. E Kirby Smith. The following is the address of Gen. Kirby Smith to the citizens of Louisiana: To the People of Louisiana: The General commanding this Department desires to make known to the people of Louisiana that the enemy, in irresistible force, has driven back our gallant little army in spite of its horic efforts and the able conduct of its General. He bids them be of good cheer and to organize themselves into minute companies so as to render him assistance, when the proper time comes, to expel the invader. He believes that such dispositions have been made as will punish the temerity of the invading column. He invokes them to lay aside all bickering and fault finding, and, with united effort, to aid him in this crisis of their country's need. Let them do this cordially and in earnest, and he believes the cloud which now envelops their prospects will soon be dissipated. E. Kirby Smith, Lieutenant General Comd'g.

The expedition to Brandon. --The following is Butler's dispatch to Washington, giving an account of the recent expedition up James river: Fortress Monroe, Jan. 25. Hon. E. M. Stanton Secretary of War: Brig. Gen. Graham, by my direction, went with three armed transports and a competent force to the Peninsula, made a landing on the James river, seven miles below Fort Powhatan, known as the Brandon farms, and captured 22 of the enemy, including seven of the signal corps, and brought away 99 negroes, destroyed 24,600 pounds of pork, large quantities of oats and corn, and captured a sloop and schooner and 240 boxes of tobacco. They returned without the loss of a man. Benj. F. Butler, Maj. Gen. Comd'g. This schooner is doubtless the one which ran the blockade from Richmond. If the Yankees insist on this capture, these traitors will lose their tobacco. Butler aint the man to let any money slip through his hands.

The Daily Dispatch: December 3, 1864., [Electronic resource], Statements of the "peace Commissioners." (search)
Statements of the "peace Commissioners." Richmond, Va., December 2, 1864. To the Editor of the Dispatch: In the New York, Daily Tribune of November 26th appear two or three columns, containing what purports to be the account of what one "Edmund Kirke," alias J. D. Gilmore, saw, and said, and did, on the occasion of his recent visit to the military prisons in this city. A portion of this account appeared in the Dispatch of the 80th ultimo. The statement is not only filled with false-hoods of the grossest character, which must be apparent to every reader, but in every particular, save the single one of his being at the Libby, is utterly without foundation. The whole story is a lie, and as well, if not better, known to be such by "Kirke" than anybody else. I have conferred with Judge Ould on the subject, and he joins me in stigmatizing it as a shameless publication. Th. P. Turner, Major Comd'g Military Prisons,
