City. 2d. A strong demonstration should be made in front of the enemy's advanced lines on Batchelor Creek, about seven miles from Newbern, to hold in position the forces there stationed until the main body of General Hoke's troops shall have got to their rear, about half-way between that creek and the town of Newbern. The best route to be followed by General Hoke's main column seems to be the Trenton road (south of Trenton River) as far as the nearest cross-road to Tar Landing, or Rock Landing, on the Trent, where this river must be crossed on a pontoon-bridge, hastily constructed; from this point the Trent road must be reached by the shortest route and followed until coming to the Savannah road, near James Branch or Creek. The column will then move along the Savannah road until reaching the Neuse road from Kinston to Newbern, where it will take up its position, throwing forward some cavalry and light troops to threaten Newbern and guard the roads leading out of that town.

t you have not been able to avail yourself of that advantage during this march northward from Atlanta. Hope the opportunity will be offered before he is extensively recruited. If you keep his communications destroyed, he will most probably seek to concentrate for an attack on you. But if, as reported to you, he has sent a large part of his force southward, you may first beat him in detail, and subsequently, without serious obstruction or danger to the country in your rear, advance to the Ohio River. Jefferson Davis. Headquarters, Military division of the West, Tuscumbia, Nov. 9th, 1864. Major-Genl. Smith, Chief-Engineer, etc.: General,—I telegraphed you yesterday relative to certain reconnoissances about Savannah, Savannah, Tennessee, on the Tennessee River. which it is thought should be made immediately, as a change of base from this place to Purdy may become necessary at any moment.

Headquarters, Department S. C. and Ga., Charleston, S. C., Oct. 18th, 1862. Judge Thomas Baltzell, Charleston, S. C.: Dear Sir,—I have no hesitation in saying, upon the information communicated to me by you relative to the present condition of the railroads in Florida, that the completion of the one from Thomasville to Bainbridge, on the Flint River (thirty-six miles), and of the branch from Groversville to the Tallahassee Railroad (sixteen miles), would add greatly to the military facilities for the defence of Middle Florida, by enabling troops from the interior of Georgia, or oriently of Savannah, to be sent rapidly to any point in that part of the State which might be threatened by the enemy. I remain, Sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, G. T. Beauregard, Genl. Comdg. [Memorandum

d shots jammed in the guns. The crew will leave the ship for Screven's Ferry, at the same time scuttling the ships effectually. Guns on the Lower End of Hutchinson's Island.—Spike the guns and jam shots in them. Break the carriages. The foregoing plan was adopted on the advice and approval of Generals Beauregard and Hardee.d, as you will see by referring to the note of General Hardee. By the 13th the bridge was completed across the main channel, and the causeway was made over Hutchinson's Island. The completion of the bridge was delayed by the destruction of rice boats, collected by my orders at different points on the river, by the cavalry we had at least such was my impression from our consultations, and this view his note of the 13th, urging the construction of a floating wharf on the north side of Hutchinson's Island, seems to corroborate. We were certainly in a precarious situation, but I urged that the enemy had not yet shown the disposition to act in the direction wh

es. I was on the cavalry front myself to-day, and don't think the advance in this direction was serious or in large force. Distant cannonading heard this evening; supposed to be on the Clinton road, in Butler's front. I expect to hear from him during the night. W. J. Hardee. Official. W. Hampton, Jr., Lieut., and A. D.

round. It is commanded to a certain extent by woods in front, and can be enfiladed and taken in reverse by gunboats on the Cooper and Ashley rivers, particularly from the last. No traverses have been constructed. They are absolutely required. Even then this line could hardly be held successfully against a fleet of gunboats in each of said rivers. The two batteries at the Half-moon Battery are not finished; they are intended for five and three guns each, to command the Cooper River and Town Creek. The distance to the former is too great. A much better position could be found, I think, on the opposite side of the river, at Hobcaw Bluffs, but obstructions would also be required. The profile of the parapet of those batteries is too great, especially of the first one. Adaptation of means to an end has not always been consulted in the works around this city and Savannah. Much unnecessary work has been bestowed upon many of them. G. T. Beauregard, Genl. Comdg. Headquart
