dalliance with our batteries. The following roll of honor was given by Colonel Higgins, commanding the water batteries, of those distinguished for their gallantry and unceasing vigilance: Maj. F. N. Ogden, Capts. T. N. McCrory and P. Grandpre, Eighth Louisiana battalion; Lieutenant-Colonel Beltzhoover, First Louisiana artillery; Capts. W. C. Capers, R. C. Bond and R. J. Bruce, Lieuts. R. Agar, E. D. Woodlief and C. A. Conrad, First artillery; Adjt. W. T. Mumford, Eighth battalion, Capt. Samuel Jones, Twenty-second regiment and Sergt. Thomas Lynch, of the First artillery, who, by his ceaseless energy in command of the picket-boats and his close attention as chief of the river police, made himself almost invaluable. In truth, Vicksburg demanded from her defenders nothing less than ceaseless energy, and unceasing vigilance. For the rest, such are the mots d'ordre of all sieges which arrest the pen of history. At 5 p. m., July 3d, the last gun was fired by the river batteries in
n, without restraint and yielding to the degraded instincts of an insolent hireling soldiery. They were hardly more accountable to the rules of civilized warfare than the Indian savages enlisted by Blunt and Herron under Canby. Meanwhile the command of General Van Dorn had been moved east of the Mississippi, by order of General Johnston. The Arkansas troops reported by Van Dorn in his organization, at Memphis, Tenn., April 29, 1862, of the Army of the West, were as follows: In Gen. Samuel Jones' division: First brigade, Brig.-Gen. A. Rust—Eighteenth Arkansas, Col. D. W. Carroll; Twenty-second Arkansas, Col. George King; Colonel Smead's Arkansas regiment; Bat. Jones Arkansas battalion; McCarver's Arkansas battalion. Second brigade, Brig.-Gen. Dabney H. Maury—Twenty-first Arkansas, Col. D. McRae; Adams' Arkansas battalion; and Garland's and Moore's Texas cavalry. Third brigade, Brig.-Gen. J. S. Roane—Third Arkansas cavalry, dismounted, Col. Solon Borland; Brooks' Arkansas batta<
here Beauregard, as commander, gave way to Bragg. In the organization at Tupelo, June 30th, the Thirteenth Arkansas remained in A. P. Stewart's brigade, assigned to Polk's corps; the First Arkansas in its former brigade, under General Walker, Samuel Jones' corps; and Hardee's corps included Col. St. J. R. Liddell's brigade—Second, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth Arkansas regiments, pioneer company and Roberts' battery; General Cleburne's brigade—Fifteenth Arkansas; and Brig.-Gen. J. S. Marmaduke'le's were the Sixteenth Arkansas, brigade of Col. Elijah Gates; Fourteenth and Seventeenth, Hebert's brigade; and in Maury's division, the Fifteenth and Twenty-third, Moore's brigade; Eighteenth, Nineteenth, Twentieth and Twenty-first regiments, Jones' and Rapley's battalions, Appeal battery, Gen. W. L. Cabell's brigade; Third cavalry dismounted, Stirman's sharpshooters, McNally's battery, General Phifer's brigade; Col. W. F. Slemons' cavalry regiment, F. C. Armstrong's brigade. The campaig
aluable storehouse in the navy yard. Late in February the disasters in Tennessee and Kentucky persuaded the war department to authorize the abandonment of the Florida ports, and General Bragg, who had been transferred to Mobile, ordered General Samuel Jones, then in charge at Pensacola, to make dispositions at the earliest moment, working night and day, to abandon the works, removing the heavy guns with ammunition to Mobile, and other supplies to Montgomery. His instructions were: I desire ychinery, etc., public and private, which could be useful to the enemy; especially disable the sawmills in and around the bay, and burn the lumber. Break up the railroad from Pensacola to the junction, carrying the iron up to a safe point. General Jones immediately afterward succeeded Bragg in department command, and his plan of evacuation, as he stated, differed from Bragg's only in this: that he would detail Col. T. M. Jones and a few hundred men to accomplish the destruction as soon as an
lle. The general commanding at Charleston conveyed to Captain Dickison his congratulations, and stated that he took pleasure in bringing this and several other instances of gallantry on the part of yourself and noble command to the notice of the President, and in recommending you for that promotion which your repeated acts of good service so justly entitle you to receive. He begs that you will make known to your officers and men his appreciation of their gallantry and good service. Gen. Sam. Jones, commanding the district of Florida, in a letter to Adjt.-Gen. Samuel Cooper, asked that Captain Dickison be given adequate rank, so that he could take command of the cavalry in Florida, and added, I have reason to believe that the name of Captain Dickison is held in great terror by the enemy. A surgeon who was captured at Baldwin, and who has since been exchanged, reported that the forces of General Birney were kept in a constant state of dread lest Dickison should come upon them. Ge
fficial censure, have more than redeemed their good name; among them, that very regiment which first broke, the 53d Ohio, Colonel Appen. Under another leader, Colonel Jones, it has shared every campaign and expedition of mine since, is with me now, and can march, and bivouac, and fight as well as the best regiment in this or any a I am, with respect, yours truly, W. T. Sherman, Major-General. Extracts from reports of Generals Buell and Nelson, and Colo-Nels Ammen, Grose, Anderson, and Jones, of the battle of Shiloh. General Nelson arrived with Colonel Ammen's brigade at this opportune moment. It was immediately posted to meet the attack at that ing no enemy, and the shells from our gunboats falling but a few feet in front of us, we halted and remained in position until about midnight. —Report of Lieutenant-Colonel Jones, Twenty-fourth Ohio Volunteers. From all which it will be seen that Grant put two of Buell's regiments in support of a battery, and that one of these
him will know the route there, as well as all parts of East Tennessee. Every preparation is ordered to advance you as fast as possible, and the success of the plan depends on rapid movements and sudden blows. The country through which you move, until you strike the mountains, will subsist your command, and forage your animals, besides giving a large supply of breadstuffs. Your object should be to drive Burnside out of East Tennessee first; or, better, to capture or destroy him. Major-General Samuel Jones will be urged to press on him from Northeast Tennessee. You will please keep open the telegraphic communication with us here, and see to the repair and regular use of railroad to Loudon. The latter is of the first importance, as it may become necessary in an emergency to recall you temporarily. I hope to hear from you fully and frequently, general, and sincerely wish you the same success which has ever marked your brilliant career. I am, general, Very respectfully and
