ere yesterday morning on the train from Weldon. They will be forwarded to their friends for interment. Two of Capt. Coit's battery were slightly disabled--one having been spiked by the breaking of a priming-wire, and the other becoming useless from the lodgment of a ball, which it was found impossible to remove. Gen. Pryor now occupies a strong position at Carrsville, and is prepared for the enemy, let him come in any force he may. General Pryor's address. headquarters forces on Blackwater, February 2, 1863. General order, No. 7. The Brigadier-General congratulates the troops of this command on the results of their recent combat. The enemy endeavored, under cover of night, to steal an inglorious victory by surprise, but he found us prepared at every point; and despite his superior numbers, greater than your own, in the proportion of five to one, he was signally repulsed and compelled to leave us in possession of the field. After silencing his guns and dispersing
na distinguished itself by driving the enemy from a strong position and taking it for themselves. Coming from Missouri, where you had endured great hardships during the last winter, you were honored by being placed at the head of the grand army of the Mississippi, and you have proved yourselves well worthy of that honor. You have encountered and defeated the same men against whom we have so long contended in Missouri and Arkansas, and you have added another wreath to those you won at Blackwater, Blackwell's Station, Fredericktown, Pea Ridge, Round Hill, Hartville, Haines's Bluff, and Post of Arkansas ; and I am sure you will go on with your glorious achievements till tile demon of rebellion shall be destroyed, and our land shall once more rejoice in the blessings of peace and prosperity. While we mourn our fallen comrades, we cannot forget that they have offered up their lives for the noblest of purposes — that of preserving to their country a Government at once free and stabl

found the ground in my front swept by half a dozen forts, one of them mounting seven rifle guns, with which they fired at pleasure over and into our line of battle. Had I have had the whole force in hand, I have little doubt that we could have gone in easily, taking the place by surprise. I would not advise a movement against Newbern or Washington again until the iron-clads are done. In the meantime, having received dispatches that the enemy were in force at Suffolk, and advancing on Blackwater, I deemed it prudent to send General Clingman back to Petersburg. I have, as yet, received no written report from General Barton, but am of the opinion that he should have advanced at the same time that I did. Had he done so, the enemy being fully employed by me, he would probably have carried out this part of the plan. At any rate it was worth the trial, and I respectfully ask an investigation of his want of cooperation. From all that I can learn, no infantry were over on that side o

Blackwater, battle of the. Late in 1861 the Department of Missouri was enlarged, and Gen. Henry W. Halleck was placed in command of it. General Price had been rapidly gathering Confeder ate forces in Missouri; and Gen. John Pope was placed in command of a considerable body of troops to oppose him. Pope acted with great vigor and skill. He made a short, sharp, and decisive campaign. Detachments from his camp struck telling blows here and there. One was inflicted by Gen.. Jefferson C. Davis on the Blackwater, near Milford, which much disheartened the Confederates of that State. Davis found the Confederates in a wooded bottom opposite his own forces. He car ried a well-guarded bridge by storm, and fell upon the Confederates with such vigor that they retreated in confusion, and were so closely pursued that they surrendered, in number about 1.300. cavalry and infantry. The spoils of victory were 800 horses and mules, 1.000 stand of arms, and over seventy wagons loaded with tents
