have united at Goldsboroa. Seven corps. I am placing our troops north of the depot and near it. Our cavalry is moving forward. Do urge Lee forward. His troops ought to march in several bodies, those leading never to wait for those following. General Lee seems to be committing the error of making the front wait for the rear. On reaching railroad, marching should be continued by those not taken up at Chester until they meet trains. J. E. 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.

arrangement will enhance the efficiency of the troops, who are in fine spirits and good condition. Too much praise cannot be awarded to the brave officers and men who encountered and defeated twice their numbers at Ocean Pond, and I commend them to the notice of the Government; they are in all respects worthy comrades of those who, on other fields, have done honor to Southern manhood. Respectfully, your obedient servant, G. T. Beauregard, Genl. Comdg. Telegram. Charleston, S. C., March 28th, 1864:11 h. A. M. Major-Genl. J. F.

W. J. Hardee, Lieut.-Genl. Richmond, April 6th, 1875. Genl. G. T. Beauregard, New Orleans: General,—Your letter of March 30th was received last evening.

I have heard so many misstatements from time to time in regard to this event, that the seizure of my papers and other effects in upper South Carolina by a troop of marauding Federal cavalry just after the war, which has prevented me from being able to give any statement of the affair which I could authenticate by documents, has always b

Leaving a force on Folly Island, after the attack in April, the enemy gave only occasional evidences of any intention to resort to the Morris Island way of attack, until a day or two before the south end of the island was lf, at Richmond?

I know that strenuous objections were urged against sending the troops in April or May last from this Department, while the enemy was in force in our front, and while it was contemplated to dislodge him from his position; and it is also within
