The battle of Shiloh.Gen Beauregard's official report. Headq'rs Army of the Mississippi, Corinth, Miss, April 11, 1862. Generals — On the 2d ultimo, having ascertained conclusively, from the movements of the enemy on the Tennessee river, and from reliable sources of information, that his aim would be to out off my communications in West Tennessee with the Eastern and Southern States, by operating from the Tennessee river, between Crump's, Landing and Eastport, as a base, I determined to fall his designs by concentrating all my available forces at and around Corinth. Meanwhile, having called on the Governors of the States of Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana, to furnish additional troops, some of them, chiefly regiments from Louisiana, soon reached this vicinity, and, with: two divisions of General Polk's command from Columbus, and a fine corps of troops from Mobile and Pensacola, under Maj. Gen. Bragg, constituted the Army of the Mississippi. At the same t
On the following morning the detailed orders of movement, a copy of which is herewith marked "A," were issued, and the movement, after some delay, commenced, the troops being in admirable spirits. It was expected we should be able to reach the enemy's lines in time to attack them early on the 5th inst. The men, however, for the most part, were unused to marching, the roads narrow, and traversing a densely wooded country, became almost impassable after a severe rain storm on the night of the 4th, which drenched the troops in bivouac; hence our forces did not reach the intersection of the roads from Pittsburg and Hamburg, in the immediate vicinity of the enemy, until late Saturday afternoon. It was then decided that the attack should be made on the next morning, at the earliest hour practicable, in accordance with the orders of movement — that is, in three lines of battle: the first and second extending from Owl creek on the left to Lick creek on the right, a distance of about th
The late Col. Mott --Among the many who fell in the ever-memorable combat before the redouble at Williamsburg, on Monday, the 5th inst., none will more lament the fall of the gallant dead than we do that of the well-known, accomplished, and much lamented Col. Mott, of the gallant 19th Mississippi volunteers, who behaved so gallantly on the field before Heintzelman's pet troops, in that "handsome affair." so eulogistically mentioned by the imperturbable Johnston, in his official report. Colonel Mott distinguished himself in Mexico, and was greatly beloved by these of his native State--In April, 1861, he was proffered many offices in Mississippi, and was an active and accomplished Brigadier; but, desiring active service, raised a company, and was elected Colonel of the 19th Mississippi Volunteers. Raising his regiment to a high state of excellence, he greatly distinguished himself in the many daily skirmishes and bush fights at the lines before Yorktown, and was appointed a Brig

Another gallant and able soldier and Captain was lost to the service of the country, when Brigadier-General Gladden, commanding 1st Brigade, Withers's Division, 3d Army Corps, died from a severe wound received on the 5th instant, after having been conspicuous to his whole corps and the army for courage and capacity. Major-General Cheatham, commanding 1st Division, 1st Corps, was slightly wounded, and had three horses shot under him. Brigadier-General Clark,
$10 reward. --Ranaway from my house, on the 5th inst., my negro boy, Joe. He is 5 feet 4 inches high, ginger-bread color, and a butcher by trade. I will give the above reward for his delivery to me, at my house, or my stall at the Old Market. Joseph Kiesh. my 7--6t*

These two corps constituted the reserve, and ware to support the front lines of battle, by being deployed when required on the right and left of the Pittsburg road, or otherwise act, according to the exigencies of the battle. At 5 A. M., on the 6th instant, a reconnoitering party of the enemy having become engaged with our advanced pickets, the commander of the forces gave orders to begin the movement and attack as determined upon, except that Trabus's brigade, of Breckinridge's Division, was detached and advanced to support the left of Bragg's corps and line of battle, when menaced by the enemy, and the other two brigades were directed to advance by the road to Hamburg, to support Bragg's right; and at the same time, Mancy's regiment, of P
e ground we had occupied the night preceding the first battle, just in front of the intersection of the Pittsburg and Hamburg roads, about four miles from the former place, while the rest of the army passed to the rear in excellent order. On the following day General Breckinridge fell back about three miles to Mickey's, which position we continued to hold, with our cavalry thrown considerably forward in immediate proximity to the battle-field. Unfortunately, towards night of the 7th instant it began to rain heavily; this continued throughout the night; the roads became almost impassable in many places, and much hardship and suffering now ensued before all the regiments reached their encampments — But despite the heavy casualties of the two eventful days of the 6th and 7th of April, this army is more confident of ultimate success than before its encounter with the enemy. To Major-Generals Polk, Bragg, and Hardee, commanding corps, and to Brig.-Gen. Breckinridge, commandi

Forbes, Burks and Harrison, brought in a bill in a few minutes, directing the Auditor of Public Accounts to pay the amount; which was passed — ayes 72 nose 3 The resolution offered a few days ago by Mr. Woonson, declaring the Confederate Conscription act unconstitutional, but counselling a patriotic obedience to it, was called up by Mr. Hunter, who offered a substitute, declaring the act perfectly constitutional, and advising obedience &c; which, together with the original, was laid upon the table, without discussion. The Speaker presented to the House a letter of resignation from Charles T. Friend, Esq, the delegate from Chesterfield, upon which. Mr. Rives offered a resolution, which was adopted, fixing the 22d inst as the day upon which the vacancy shall be filled by election the resignation of Mr. Friend, at his own instance, taking affect on the 20th. The House then went into secret season on the River Defences.
se may be, with my companions. The General commanding, and the staff, have not yet gone on board the steamers detailed for their use, but the almost is done to get stores and all the vast variety of materials connected with such an army and such an expedition in readiness, and no doubt this week will witness remarkable events around Fortress Monroe. His opinion of Island no.10 and New Orleans. From Island No.10 comes an admission of failure, though the bombardment was renewed on the 29th. But it is hoped that, as soon as the river falls, the Federal troops will be able to advance, and thus clear the river; and the news of a successful attack on New Orleans is confidently expected, after which the Unionists consider the Mississippi virtually in their hands, not with standing the fortifications above Memphis, and the immense levies at Corinth and other places near its shore — New Orleans, however, may prove as formidable as Island No.10.

accompanying return marked "B." Our Commander-in-Chief, Gen. A. S. Johnston, fell mortally wounded and died on the field at 2:80 P. M, after having shown the highest qualities of the commander, and a personal intrepidity that inspired all around him, and gave resistless impulsion to his columns at critical moments. The chief command then devolved upon me, though at the time I was greatly prostrated and suffering from the prolonged sickness with which I had been afflicted since early in February. The responsibility was one which in my physical condition I would have gladly avoided, though cast upon me when our forces were successfully pushing the enemy back upon the Tennessee river, and though supported on the immediate field by such corps commanders as Major-Generals Polk, Bragg and Hardee, and Brigadier-General Breckinridge commanding the reserve. It was after 6 o'clock P. M., as-before said, when the enemy's last position was carried, and his forces finally broke and sough
