The Daily Dispatch: December 16, 1861., [Electronic resource], Federal relations with foreign Powers. (search)
fteen miles west of Monterey, to which point the force remaining in that vicinity, under Col. Edward Johnston, had Fallen back and encamped.--The official dispatch received on Saturday says that the o'clock, in the afternoon, when the enemy retreated; that the Federals numbered 5,000, while Col. Johnston's command was only 1,200 strong, but has since been reinforced by two regiments. We havallied gallantly to their work, and fought with the energy of desperation. The troops under Col. Johnston's command were portions of the 12th Georgia and the 31st Virginia regiments, Col. Baldwin's s believed to be very heavy. It was a desperate fight, and a dearly bought victory. Col. Edward Johnston, under whose command the battle was fought, is a native of Chesterfield county, Va. He wa Loring's division, a portion of which had been lately transferred to another point leaving Col. Johnston the senior officer of the post. This force, at Camp Alleghany, expected orders to move east
orted loud cries of pain from the wounded Yankees, to which our men responded with cheers. The ground was literally blue with the killed and wounded. Our loss is estimated at one hundred and fifty killed and wounded. The division of Gen. Edward Johnston, which followed that of Gen. Rodes, was moved up within supporting distance during the fight, and, it is said, left the rations they were preparing on the fire. The division of Gen. Early was at the time encamped about three miles from Winchester. Night coming on space and putting an end to the conflict, the Yankees withdrew from the field. Gens. Rodes and Johnston, accompanied by Wright's brigade, then marched beyond Front Royal, encamped for the night, and next morning proceeded on the march up Luray Valley. I have been unable to procure a list of killed and wounded, which loss fell chiefly on Wright's brigade, readily accounted for by the vastly superior odds against which they had to contend before reinforcements came
The Daily Dispatch: August 1, 1863., [Electronic resource], Experience of a Scout going into and coming out of Vicksburg (search)
Experience of a Scout going into and coming out of Vicksburg On the 24th of May General Johnston dispatched Lamar Fontaine, the "hero upon crutches," with a verbal message to General Pemberton, in Vicksburg. He carried forty pounds of percussion caps, besides his blanket and crutches. The narrative of the dangerous adventure, published in the Mobile Advertiser, is very interesting, and we give a portion of it: He crossed Big Black river that night, and the next day got between theiris and the Southern Confederacy, amid the vivas of our sailors, who gave him a joyful reception and assisted him to Gen. Pemberton's quarters. After resting a day and night in the city he started out with a dispatch from Gen Pemberton to Gen. Johnston. He embarked on his same canoe, and soon reached the enemy's fleet below the city. He avoided their picket boats on both shares, and fleeted near their gunboats. He passed so near one of these that through an open porthole he could see men

S. service, and Adjutant Mullott and guard had been sent to arrest them and, having discovered them, were about making their arrest, when they turned and fired, killing the Adjutant in his tracts. The guard immediately returned the fire, severely wounding one of them, (Henson Fulch,) whose trial has not yet taken place. The verdict of the Court in the case of these murderers sentences them to be hung on to-morrow (Saturday) in the presence of Gen. Edward Johnston's command, Ewell's division, Army of Northern Virginia. There is no doubt they will expiate their crime at the time appointed. Let their terrible doom be an admonition to all who have ever thought of committing the damnable act of traitor to their country, and teach them that loyalty and devotion to the cause in is the only course which is honorable and right to pursue.
