The main column pushed on aoout lour
miles, and bivouacked for the night. There !
was some cavalry skirmishing during the day.
On Saturday, the 13th, we again started,
leaving the second main road (the one I was
on) to the right, and leaving at this intersec
tion the 46th Massachusetts and one section of
artillery (the 24th New York) to hold the po
sition and feint on the second main road. m
We reached Southwest creek, the bridge
over which was destroyed, and the enemy
posted on the opposite bank, some four hun
dred strong, with three pieces of artillery.
The creek was not fordable and ran at the foot
of a deep ravine, making a very bad position
for us. I ordered a battery in as good a posi
tion as could be obtained, and under their fire

at the mill to support the Utn JNew Jersey, ami
also crossed - the remainder of Gen. Wessels'
brigade. Col. Hickman, with the fth New-
Jersey, advanced, and was fired upon when
about one mile from the creek, with canister
and musketry. The regiment charged at
double-quick, drove the enemy, took some
prisoners and captured a six pounder gun,
caisson, &c, complete. General Wcssell
bivouacked on the further side of the creek,
with the 9th in advance. The balance of the
command, with the artillery, remained on this
side of the creek. Tho 9 th New Jersey ; Co.
K, 3d New Y'ork cavalry, and Morrison's bat
tery, 3d New York artillery, had quite a skir
mish with the enemy, but drove them, and
camped for the night. From the south side of
the creek I sent a company of cavalry to strike.
and proceed up the Kinston road No. 2. I was i

they retired with some loss, destroying the i
bridge. The enemy s torce at tnis place was ;
estimated at one regiment and four pieces ol
artillery. Major Garrard, with three companies
of cavalry and one section of artillery, pro
ceeded on a reconnoissan'-e on a road leading
to Whitehall. After following this road about
ten miles, and having met with no opposition,
they rejoined the main column.
Sunday, the 14th instant, I advanced the
column, and when about one mile from Kins
ton encountered the enemy in strong force.
They were posted in strong position in the
woods, taking advantage of the ground, which
formed a natural breastwork ; their position
was secured on the right by a deep swamp,
and their left was partially protected by the
The Ninth New Jersey we-e deployed as
skirmishers, and Gen. Wesietts' brigade, with
Morrison's battery, Third Ne w Y'urk artillery,
were ordered to advance to the right and left
of the road, the battery being sent to our ex
treme right, supported by one of Gen. Wes
seils' regiments. Colonel Amory's brigade
was then advanced, the Seventeenth Mass.,
being sent to support Colonel Hickman on the
right, and two regiments (Twenty-third and
Forty-fifth Massachusetts) advanced up the j

in a largo field on the right of the road and
about three fourths of a mile in rear of line of
a' tack, (the only position they could be placed
in.) I then ordered Colonel Stevenson's bri
gade, with Belger's Rhode Island battery, for
ward. The Twenty fourth Massachusetts
supported this batter-, and the Filth Rhode
Islan 1, Tenth Connecticut and Forty-fourth
Massachusetts were ordered forward, the two
former on the lefl of the road, and the latter
on the right, to support the regiments there in
pushing the enemy and turning that tlauk.
The Tenth Connect'cut advanced steadily to
the extreme front, relieving two leg. of Wessels'
brigade who were short of ammunition, and,
after receiving a horrible fire for seme twenty
minutes, made a most gallant charge, in con
junction with the Ninety-sixth New ork:b
Volunteers, of Genera! Wessons brigade, !
which, with the advance already made (slowly
but surely) of the whole line, forced the enemy
to retreat precipitately from the bridge, over
the N'euse, which they crossed, tiring the
bridge, which h id been prepared for that pur
pose. Several regiments were so close, how
ever, that about four hundred prisoners were
taken Iro n the enemy. A line was formed to
the river and (he fire extinguished before great
damage was done.

to shell the enemy with their twenty pounder
Parrotts, from the opposite bank, and crossed
Col. Amory's brigade with all despatch ; but
before I could attack the enemy had retired,
and, it being by this time night, I was unable
to pursue, and, moreover, my object was ac
complished. The troops bivouacked in the
fields beyond the town that night, a provost
guard was established for the protection of the
town, and all necessary precautions were taken.
I sent Company K, Third New York cavalry,
down the Neusc, to a work commanding the
river. They reported it deserted, with six
guns in position, and the work to be of great
strength. I sent the company back with teams
to bring up the guns and blow up the maga
zine the two heavy guns, one eight inch
columbiad and one thirty-two-pounder, which
the men were uuable to remove. Captain
Cole destroyed the magazine and brought off
four field pieces complete. Besides these, we
had two others, deserted by the enemy, and
the one taken bv the Ninth New Jersey. I
left a strong guard in the town, under Major
Fitzsimmons, to make a demonstration on the
(joldsb'iro road on that side of the river. Col.
Ledlie, Third New York artillery, remained to
destroy commissary and quartermasters' stores
and to burn the bridge. Major Fitzsimmons
advanced some nine mdes in the direction of
Goldsboro, when, hearing the whistle of a loco
motive, he fired three shots in the direction of
the sound, upon which the train immediately
returned in tho direction of Goldsboro. Col.
Ledlie, before leaving Kinston, destroyed a
locomotive, a railroad Monitor, &c.

three and a half miles of Whitehall, when I
halted for the night. I sent Major Garrard,
with three companies of cavalry, to make a

miles, and destroyed the bridgu ocr Goshen
Swamp. The track between MjuuI Oiive and
the Goshen Swamp bridge was torn up and
burned in five places.
The column having arrived at Whitehall,
and finding the bridge burned and the enemy
in some force, with infantry and artillery on
the other side, and this being the direct road
to Goldsboro, I determined to make a strong
feint, as if to rebuild and cross. The Ninth

The recent horrible and supposed tragedy
which occurred recently at the residence of
Mr. Benjamin Turner, on Brigantinc Beach,
New Jersey, has created considerable feeling
in this city. The facts as related to us are as
Captain Turner and his wife bad occasion to
go from home a few days ago, and left the
house in charge of a son and daughter, aged
respectively abot seventeen and twenty years,
and with them, also, a little girl of fowl jr.uu
ol age named Smith. Early on New Year's
evening the supposed murderer, a young man,
about twenty years of age, who lived about a
mile from Turner's house, started out in the
bay in his skiff and decoy ducks with the os
tensible purpose of watching the setting of the
game in the bay for the night. It appears
that after putting out the decoys he relumed
ashore and proceeded to the house of Turner
with the intention of robbing it, knowing that
there was some 500 ra gold and silver left
there. Bei'ig inlimata with the faroilv, he re
mained a short time, and again took his depar-
v., -!innt twilci o'pIupIc tlif crtn p niirhl
the brotlier and sister were arouse.l Irom t neir
slumbers by knocks at the door and a demand
for admittance. They soon recognized the
voice of the neighbor and supposed Iriend.
The young woman told her brother to go do'.v
and let him in, which he proceeded to do,
when, as he opened the door he was suddenly
struck with an axe on the head, inflicting a
horrible wound. He, however, quickly recov
ered his senses, and immediately grappled
with the murdered.
By this time the sister heard the scuffle, and
came bravely to the assistance of her brother.
They succeeded in putting the villian out and
fastening tflkr. The woman than manag
ed to bringlonng man to his bed again.
The bullied man broke t!-.e door open, rushed
in, and seized Turner's gun to finish his hor
rible butchery. The young woman again
grappled with him, and actually succeeded in
wresting the gun from his hands, and threw it
out of the window. She then tried to make
her escape, but when in the act of climbing
out of the window she w as again met by the
murd r r, w ho had gone around an i climbed
up the porch to head her off. He had the
gun in Ins band once more, and took deliber
ate aim at her head and fired, but at that in
stant she threw- a chair down upon him. The
shot, however, struck the poor girl in the arm,
causing a frightful wound. She then escaped
through the back door, made her way to the
nearest neighbors, anil gave the alarm. The
supposition is, that while she was away, the
inhuman wretch shot young Turner as he lay
writhing in agony from the blows of the asc.
He then set fire to tile house, and it soon lay a
heap of ashes, with tho bones of the murdered
boy and the little girl, Smith, who perished in
the flames. On Friday morning he was found
in the bay, lying in his skiff; with half his
head blow n from his body, and the gun by his
Mde discharged. The father of the supposed
murderer is a respectable man.
