ce under my command for the immediate defence of Petersburg (about 2200 of all arms) consisted of Wise's brigade, some artillery, two regiments of Dearing's cavalry, and a few militia.

Beauregard: General Lee reports Grant has abandoned his depot on the York, and moved to James River, he supposes about McClellan's old base, at Harrison's Landing.

On its receipt the following order was immediately sent to Major-General Hoke: Headquairters, Department N. C. And so. Va., June 14th, 1864. General,—The Commanding General directs that you move at once, as rapidly as possible, with your division to Petersburg, leaving one brigade at Walthall Junction. Respectfully, your obed

. Johnston. Telegram. Raleigh, N. C., March 24th, 1865:1.35 P. M. Genl. S. D. Lee, at Chester, S. C. (or to be forwarded): General Johnston desires you to urge forward your troops as rapidly as possible. On reaching the Charlotte Railroad, marching should continue by troops not taken up until they meet train coming for them. G. T. Beauregard. Telegram. Raleigh, N. C., March 26th, 1865: 12 M. Lieut.-Genl. S. D. Lee, care of Capt. Buck, A. A. G., at Fort Mills, Rock Hill, or Chester, S. C.: From Newberry you should have reached railroad at Blackstocks or Chester, where instructions were sent you. I will order cars to meet you at Catawba bridge.

r armament of the defensive works in Charleston Harbor, I beg leave to suggest that some of those now in position at Over Bluff, on the Tombigbee River, and at Choctaw Bluff, on the Alabama River, may be prudently removed and sent here, unless they shall be necessary for the immediate defence of Mobile Bay. They cannot be requirednl. To Genl. Beauregard, Tupelo, Miss. Telegram. Tupelo, Jan. 17th, 1865. Col. G. W. Brent, Chief of Staff: Order General Smith to inspect works at Choctaw and Open Bluff, and give such orders as may be necessary for defence of rivers at those points; obstructions and torpedoes recommended for Tennessee River must bwithout Stewart's corps, and cannot fight a battle with it against an army; and French's division is very weak, but will enable me to fully garrison Mobile and Choctaw Bluff. The remainder of the corps should go east at once to insure success there. We can thus save Lee's communications, raise the siege of Mobile, should it be in
Russia (Russia) (search for this): chapter 26
horoughly established laws of war may be chiefly attributed to the species of persons employed by your predecessor in command in these expeditions, and should have been anticipated, in view of the lessons of history—that is, negroes, for the most part, either fugitive slaves or who had been carried away from their masters' plantations. So apparent are the atrocious consequences which have ever resulted from the employment of a merciless servile race as soldiers, that Napoleon, when invading Russia, refused to receive or employ against the Russian Government and army the Russian serfs, who, we are told, were ready on all sides to flock to his standard, if he would enfranchise them. He was actuated, he declared, by a horror of the inevitable consequences which would result from a servile war. This course one of your authors, Abbott, contrasts to the prejudice of Great Britain, in the war of 1812 with the United States, in the course of which were employed the tomahawk and the scalping

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, abole. 3d. General Hoke will then throw forward a sufficient force from his main body to attack in rear the enemy's advanced lines, already referred to, along Batchelor Creek, and from thence to the Trent. General Hoke's troops left on the west side of Batchelor Creek should attack also with vigor as soon as they shall have heard Batchelor Creek should attack also with vigor as soon as they shall have heard the firing in their front. 4th. A rapid reconnoissance should determine, meanwhile, where and how to attack the line of works constructed near the town from the Neuse to the Trent. It is probable that the portion of the line nearest to the former stream will be found the least difficult to take, especially with the co-operatio
Ashley River (South Carolina, United States) (search for this): chapter 26
rt Pemberton is a strong work, and has an armament of twenty guns of various calibres. There are two batteries on the Ashley River to defend it and the entrance into Dill's Creek and the Wappoo. For want of guns they are still unprovided with theirmanded 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 linee to increase the heavy armament of the works intended to command the archorage in the harbor, and the entrances into the Ashley and Cooper rivers, to the utmost possible extent. Hence I have the honor to request that I may be furnished, as soon as 's torpedoes which are already made and ready for use. You will also cause additional torpedoes to be placed in the Ashley River, and the mouths of Dill's Creek and Wappoo Cut, if the steamers to be used for this purpose are not indispensable for

From where he is now, about Sandersville, he may move equally well on Port Royal, Ossabaw Sound, or Darien. One or two days more will decide the point he shall have selected. Augusta can now be considered out of danger, and the movable part of its garrison can safely be transferredas soon as he can be spared by you. Respectfully, your obedient servant, G. T. Beauregard.
