Doc. 10.-battle at McDowell, Va. this battle is also known as the battle of Bull Pasture Mountain. Report of Brig.-General Milroy. headquarters Milroy's brigade, camp near Franklin, Va., May 14. General: I have the honor to report to you the result of the engagement of the eighth inst., near McDowell on the Bull Pasture Mountains. As an apology for the delay in transmitting this report, I would state that the officers and men of my command have, since the occurrence of the engagement, been constantly occupied in active field duty, leaving no time for the preparation of the details by the company and regimental commanders from which alone a correct report could be made. Upon the seventh day of May, I was first advised by my scouts and spies that a junction had been made between the armies of Gens. Jackson and Johnson, and that they were advancing to attack me at McDowell. Having, the day previous, sent out a large portion of the Third Virginia, Seventy-fifth Ohio,
Virginia cavalry being held in reserve, had the most difficult part to perform, that of being exposed to the enemy's fire without being able to participate. The Medical and Quartermaster's Departments deserve great credit for their energy and zeal in carrying the wounded and dead from the field. The surgeons and assistant-surgeons deserve particular mention for their skill and unfaltering attention to the wounded. Col. George Crook, Commanding Brigade. General Fremont's order. Franklin, Va., May 24. The following circular was issued from Headquarters this morning: The General Commanding congratulates the army on a new victory in this department, won by the skill and bravery of our soldiers against the superior numbers of the enemy. The Third brigade of Gen. Cox's division, commanded by Col. Crook, was attacked yesterday morning at Lewisburgh, by Gen. Heath, with three thousand men, and after a lively engagement the enemy were routed and fled in confusion. Col. Cro
Doc. 57.-action near Franklin, Va. in the field of Albert Johnson, two miles from Carsville, Va., December 2, 1862. Yesterday afternoon, a force of three thousand, including one section of Howard's battery, two sections of the Seventh Massachusetts battery, the Eleventh Pennsylvania cavalry, and five regiments of infantry — the Ohio Sixty-second, Illinois Thirty-ninth, Pennsylvania One Hundred and Third, New-York One Hundred and Thirtieth, and Massachusetts Sixth--all under command of Col. Spear, Eleventh Pennsylvania cavalry, left Suffolk, with two days rations, for a little business excursion toward Franklin. Indications of rebel forces were seen during the day on our side of the Blackwater, and their pickets were chased by the scouts of the Eleventh. Soon after sunrise, this morning, the whole force reached Beaver Dam Church, two miles beyond Carsville, and three miles short of Franklin, when the videttes brought in the exciting news that a squad of our pickets, some d

esired to connect themselves with a single Church in North Carolina, and upon inquiry he found that that Church had recently enjoyed a precious season of revival. Thus it operates—the prayer of the soldier for his loved ones at home is heard, and the prayer for the absent soldier boy is not unheeded. But I must close, as I fear I'll make your readers rejoice that my lengthy communications are only occasional. Rev. W. N. Chaudoin reports that during a recent visit to our forces at Franklin, Virginia, he baptized eight persons. Up to the time of his leaving there were nearly fifty professions of conversion. Rev. J. L. Truman says: I spent the greater part of September in protracted meetings, in concert with other ministers. These meetings were attended with great good. At one there were 140 converts, and seventy were baptized. There were converts in all of these meetings. A religious feeling of no ordinary character now prevails in the Army of Northern Virginia.

o Washington in the early morning, surprised the garrison, and after a hot fight withdrew, taking several captured guns. The gunboat Picket, stationed there, was blown up just as her men were called to quarters to fire on the Confederates, and nineteen of her men were killed and wounded. The Confederates inflicted in this action a loss of 44, and suffered a loss of 1 3 killed and 57 wounded. On the 2d of October, General Peck sent Colonel Spear, with 1,700 men and some artillery, to Franklin, Va., on the Blackwater, to attack the Confederates at that point, and if possible to destroy a floating bridge there. The place was defended by Col. J. K. Marshall, of the Fifty-second North Carolina. Spear reached the river on the 3d, and a lively skirmish took place across the river. In spite of the fact that General Peck reported his force as having inflicted a loss of from 75 to 200, the Confederate casualties were 2 wounded. General Foster with 5,oco men left Washington, N.
