Captain — I have the honor to report the following as the operations of the Seventy-second regiment Indiana volunteers, on the first and second of April, 1865. April first. My regiment having the advance, four companies were sent forward as advance guard, under command of Major L. S. Kilborn, with orders to advance rapidly that the column might not be detained. The enemy was found near Randolph, and contended for every point on the way, but was so vigorously pressed that the command marched rapidly for fifteen miles, where they were found in line protected by rail works. I received orders from Colonel Miller, commanding brigade, to dismount the remaining six companies of my regiment and dislodge them from their position, which was done at once by charging their lines on the left of the road, after which I was joined by the other regiments of the brigade, and advanced to Vogle's c

n great peace to-day. He was of fine form and handsome face with beautiful black hair and flowing beard. He talked so calmly of death and so tenderly of his mother. All was well with the noble young man. How I sympathized with his brother when he leaned so fondly over the dying form and caressed him as if he were a child, saying so pathetically and touchingly: Tom, you are dying; speak to me, boy, poor fellow! June 10. T. M. Holland, Company D, Fifty-fourth Tennessee-home Randolph, Tipton county, Tennessee—was resigned to the will of God, but from the nature of his wound could say but little, but declared himself ready and willing to go. June 11. Lieutenant Rankin, Twenty-ninth Mississippi, when wounded was placed in my charge, and I carried him to the Medical College Hospital. While in the ambulance with him he said he believed the wound was mortal. He had grown cold by neglecting his duty, but had tried to be a Christian and lead a better life, and had hope of heaven.
like opinion. I attest that all we lost at Corinth and during the retreat would not amount to one day's expense of his army. G. T. Beauregard. Capture of Memphis. A few days after Gen. Beauregard's movement from Corinth, the city of Memphis having been abandoned by the Confederate garrison departing to another scene of action, was easily captured by the large Federal fleet in the Mississippi River. The capture was made on the 6th of June. The evacuation of Forts Pillow and Randolph had taken place two days before. In the river near Memphis was a small fleet of Confederate boats. It consisted of the General Van Dorn, (flag-ship,) General Price, General Bragg, Jeff. Thompson, General Lovell, General Beauregard, Sumter, and Little Rebel, all under the command of Corn. Montgomery. Each of these boats carried an armament of two guns, with the exception of the Jeff. Thompson, which had four. The Federal gunboats consisted of the following: the gunboat Benton, (flag-s

John S. Marmaduke's battalion of eight companies, which he afterward denominated the Third Confederate infantry, three companies of cavalry under Maj. C. W. Phifer, and Captain Swett's Mississippi battery of four guns. The combined force, temporarily known as Hindman's legion, was first sent to Randolph, Tenn., then to the defense of Columbus, Ky., when it was bombarded by the Western flotilla under Foote, in cooperation with Federal General Grant. Hindman's regiment did effective service at Richmond and Perryville, Ky., and in Hindman's division was in that part of Sidney Johnston's line which swept through Sherman's camps at Shiloh. Hindman, who had been promoted to brigadier-general, had his horse killed under him, and after the battle was promoted to major-general and given permanent co

y raised. A complete success had crowned their ingenious efforts and their perseverance; the Mississippi was open for more than eighty miles in a straight line, and for nearly twice that distance, following its sinuosities, across the low and marshy grounds, where no fortified works could be erected, as far as the first bluffs, like those of Columbus, which are found a little above the city of Memphis. These bluffs were covered with several works of considerable importance—Forts Wright, Randolph, Harris, and Pillow—which had been erected under the superintendence of Beauregard at the very time when Island No.10 was being evacuated. These forts protected not only the approaches of Memphis, but were intended to cover the left wing of the army assembled at Corinth; and their fate was inseparably connected with that of this position, as Columbus had been before with that of Bowling Green. The intersection of the two principal Southern railways had designated Corinth as the point of

Brown was arrested. Augustus Fuller, a member of one of the Memphis companies, was drowned near that city last week. Wm. C. McBeth, a Methodist preacher, fell overboard from a Mississippi steamer last Thursday and was drowned. Martin Cox, a member of the Jackson Guards, was drowned at Randolph, Tenn., on the 9th inst., while bathing. A large quantity of gunpowder, from New Orleans, arrived at Memphis on the 8th instant. Rufus King, Minister to Rome, has been appointed Brigadier General of the Wisconsin forces. Jos.
