es commanded by you and those commanded by myself, and will be willing to confer with you to that end. I will limit the advance of my main column to-morrow to Morrisville, and the cavalry to the University, and expect that you will also maintain the present position of your forces until each has notice of a failure to agree. That a basis of action may be had, I undertake to abide by the same terms and conditions as were made by Generals Grant and Lee, at Appomattox Court-house, on the 9th instant, relative to our two armies; and, furthermore, to obtain from General Grant an order to suspend the movements of any troops from the direction of Virginia. General Stoneman is under my command, and my order will suspend any devastation or destruction contemplated by him. I will add that I really desire to save the people of North Carolina the damage they would sustain by the march of this army through the central or western parts of the State. In accordance with this arrangement Gene

The fire of the enemy was directed chiefly against Fort Sumtng General has found it necessary to countermand his order of the 9th inst., and to recall the troops that were ordered to report to you, wit of our boats. His works, such as they were, were discovered on the 9th, and a scouting expedition, under Captain Haskell, on the night of t had been ordered to Baldwin; reached Baldwin at daylight on the 9th instant. Remaining a short time they continued on to Barber's the same small loss to us and a considerable loss to the enemy. On the 9th instant I removed all the Government stores from Sanderson, except fifte to join him, overtaking him at Cave Spring on the evening of the 9th inst. I was there informed by him that General Sherman, having hasti My dear Sir,—Your very kind and highly appreciated letter of the 9th ult., enclosing a slip from the New Orleans Times-Democrat, containing
w little he relied on the effectiveness of the original boom; but spoke very encouragingly of Captain F. D. Lee's plan for a torpedo-ram, which, General Beauregard thought, would be equivalent to several gunboats. He added that he feared not to put on record, now, that half a dozen of these torpedo-rams, of small comparative cost, would keep this harbor clear of four times the number of the enemy's ironclad gunboats. See, in Appendix to this chapter, letter to Governor Pickens. On the 10th he ordered a new work to be put up on the left of the New Bridge, city side of the Ashley River, and to repair the battery at New Bridge, Church Flats; and the chief-engineer was specially instructed as to the transfer and new location of guns already in position. On the 12th he addressed this communication to Mr. J. K. Sass, Chairman of the State Gunboat Committee: Dear Sir,—In view of the necessity of getting ready, as soon as possible, the proposed torpedo-ram of Capt. F. D. Le
ered nearer to the walls of Sumter, in all probability they would have shared the ill fate of Commander Rhinds's double-turreted monitor. All would have been not merely crippled but destroyed. The presence of the monitors in the outer harbor after the action, without even a timber guard or fender around them, led General Beauregard to believe that a fine opportunity was now offered him to test the efficiency of the spar torpedo-boats he had held in readiness for some such purpose. On the 10th he had a conference on the subject with two of the naval officers then in Charleston. He found them perfectly willing, and even anxious, to carry out his plan. Accordingly, on the following day he addressed the subjoined letter to Lieutenant Webb—one of the two officers above referred to—whose gallantry and daring were already established: Dear Sir,—Upon further reflection, after the discussion yesterday with Captain Tucker and yourself, I think it would be preferable to attack each<
if the purpose of the enemy be to send his reinforcements to the Mississippi, you will go on and co-operate with General Johnston in that quarter. This I answered by a telegram, on the 13th of same month, as follows: Enemy's ironclads and forces still as heretofore reported to Department, excepting a gunboat expedition reported in Altamaha, and one preparing for St. John's River, Florida. I will prepare as far as practicable for contingencies referred to in Department's letter, 10th inst. Please send me any positive information relative to movements or intentions of enemy. But, in order that the War Department should be thoroughly cognizant of the state of affairs in my Department, I further addressed to you a letter, on the 15th June, in which I pointed out how utterly insufficient were the forces at my command to resist those of the enemy, and that on my own responsibility I could not further deplete the force in the Department. I drew your attention, in this same le

Very respectfully, yours, etc., G. T. Beauregard, General. The enemy was now so near the railroad, between Savannah and the river, that General Beauregard was compelled to ascend the stream as far as the bridge—a distance of some fifteen miles— before he could safely take the train, which he did on the 10th, at 1 A. M., being accompanied by Colonels Otey and Roman and Major James B. Eustis. At 5 P. M. on that day he was again in Charleston, and the next morning caused the following order to be published: Headquarters, Military division of the West, Charleston, Dec. 11th, 1864. General orders, No.—: 1.

McLaws's division is at and about Branchville. I shall leave here to-morrow for Columbia. Upon reaching Columbia, about noon on the 10th, General Beauregard immediately telegraphed General Hardee advising the concentration of his forces from the Combahee line to a line behind the Edisto, so as to shorten it as much as possible. On the day following, in answer to General Hardee,
