They expended an immense amount ork volunteers, both under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Jackson, encamped on Hutchinson's Island, and so intrenched as to hold the upper part of it against any force the enemy might bring.

rifle-guns; four hundred and twenty wagons from the different commands at this post. Reached Flat Rock at six P. M., small detachments of the enemy's cavalry retiring before my advance. Here I encamped and parked my trains, in a position strengthened by rail defences; and from this place as a depot, my foraging operations were conducted. October 12.--Crossed South-River at Flat Rock, and during the day loaded about three hundred wagons within a distance of three miles, along the Fayetteville road. These were sent to the temporary depot. About noon, one of my cavalry outposts was attacked by a party of the enemy, who were driven off, two men of Colonel Garrard's command being wounded in the affair. Shortly before dark the enemy attacked another outpost, and were charged by a detachment of my cavalry, who drove them a mile and a half, with a loss of two rebels killed.

ned safely, recrossing the river in canoes. I learned the next day that the enemy were tearing up the Georgia Railroad at Union Point, seven miles east of Greensboro, apparently being possessed with the idea that General Sherman's army was moving on Augusta, and using the railroad as it came. From all I could learn, then and since, it is my opinion that my small command could at that time have penetrated to Augusta, without serious opposition. Leaving Park's Mill, and having crossed Sugar Creek, I came to Glade's Cross-Roads, when I took the one leading to the left; moving one and a half miles on this road, I again turned to the left on a smaller one, and encamped at dark near the large tannery and shoe factory and store owned by James Denham, one of the most extensive establishments of the kind in the South.
