Major Gen. IT. W. llalWl, General in- ChU j
L. fi. Army, II iii nylon, 11. t. :
General Referring to my letters of Decern
ber 10th, 14th and 20th, I have the honor to
report that I left this town at 8 A. il. of the
11 th, with tie following forces:
Gen. Wessells' brigade of Uen. Peck's divis
ion, kindly loaned to me.
Col. Amory's brigade.
Col. Stevenson's brigade.
Col. Lee's brigade.
In all about infantry.
Batteries -Third New York artillery.
Belger's battery. First Rhode Island.
Section of Twenty-four New l'otk Inde
pendent battery.
Section of Twenty-third Independent bat
tery, having a total of guns.
' .And the Third New York cavalry, of about
men.
We marched the first day on the main Kins
ton road about fourteen miles, when, finding;
the road obstructed by felled trees for half a
mile and over, I bivouacked for the night, and
had the obstructions removed during the night
by the pioneers.
I pushed on the next morning at daylight.
My cavalry advance encountered the enemy
when about four miles from tho bivouac of the
previous night, and after a sharp but brief
skirmish the enemy were routed with some
loss.
On arriving at the Vino Swamp road, I or-
- dered Caot. HalL with- three companies of
cavalry, to push on up the main Kinstn road
is a demonstration, while the main column
proceeded by the Vine Swamp road to the left,
thereby avoiding the obstructions and the
enemy on the main road. C.-.pt. Hall encoun
tered the enemy in some force ; but alter a
severe fight whipped them, taking eighteen
prisoners and killing a number. The march
of the main column was somewhat delayed by
the bridge over Beaver creek being destroyed.
This was rebuilt, and I pushed on, leaving a
regiment (51st Massachusetts) and a section of
artillery (23d New York) at the bridge to hold
it, and to protect the intersection of the main
road and the road I was on, to support Capt.
Hall, and to prevent any force driving him
back and occupying the crossroads in our rear.
The main column pushed on about four
miles, and bivouacked for the night. There
was some cavalry skirmishing during the day.
On Saturday, the 13th. we arain startad,
leaving the second main road (the one I was
on) to the richt. and leaving at this intersec
tion the 46th Massachusetts and one section of
artillery (the 24th New York) to hold the po
eition and feint on the second main road.
We reached Southwest creek, the bridge
over which was destroyed, and the enemy
posted on the opposite bank, some four hun
dred stroncr, 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
the 9th New Jersey, which had tho advance,
pushed Gallantly across tho creek by swim
ming, by fragments of the bridge and by a
milldam and formed on the opposite bank :
at the same time the 85th Pennsylvania, of
Gen. Wessells brigade, forced a passage by
the felling of trees and fording, about half a
niilo below the bridge, and engaged the ene
my's left, who thereupon retired and deserted
bis breastworks. I had ordered the 23d Mas
sachusetts, of Col. Amory's brigade, to cross
at the mill to support the 9th New Jersey, and
also crossed - the remainder of Gen. Wessels'
brigade. Col. Hickman, with the fth New
Jersey, advanced, and was fired upon when
about one mile frora 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 Wessell
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. The 9th New Jersey ; Co.
K, Sd New York 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
on No. 3. The company proceeded up the
road toward Kinston, and found the enemy
posted by a bridge, which was prepared to be
destroyed. The compan3' charged them, and
they retired with some loss, destroying the
bridge. The enemy's force at this place was
estimated at one regiment and four pieces of
artillery. Major Garrard, with three companies
of cavalry and one section of artillery, pro
ceeded on a rsconnoissane 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 tho right by a deep swamp,
and their left was partially protected by the
river.
The Ninth New Jersey were deployed as
skirmishers, and Gen. Wessetts' brigade, with
Morrison's battery, Third New Yurk 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
sells' 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
road. My artillery (three batteries) I posted
in a largo field on the right of the road and
about three fourths of a tnilo 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 fjurih Massachusetts
supported Ihis battery, and the Filth Rhode
Islan I, Tenth Connecticut and Forty-fourth
Massachusetts were ordered forward, the two
former on the left of the road, and the latter
on the right, to support the regiments there in
pushing the enemy and turning that Hank.
The Tenth Connect'cut advanced steadily to
the extreme front,rclicving two l eg. of Wessels'
brigade who were short of ammunition, and,
nfler receiving a horrible tire for some twenty
minutes, made a most gallant charge, in con
junction with the Ninety-sixth New York
Volunteers, of General Wessells' brigade,
which, with the advanee already made (slowly
but surely) of the whole line, forced the enemy
to retreat j r.-cipitatcly from the bridge, over
the Neuse, which they crossed, tiring the
bridge, which hiv.l been prepared for that pur
pose. Several regiments w ere so cloe, how
ever, that about four hundred prisoners were
taken Iro n the enemy. A line was firmed to
the river and the fire extinguished before great
damage was d-me.
The Ninth New Jers -y, Seve i! c.-nih Ma-sa-chusitts

s'art with, was unwilling to sacr'fioj my men.
and waited for my artillery to crofcs. I ordered
batteries K and I, Third New York artillery,
to shell tho enemy with their twenty pounder
Parrotts, from the opposite bank, and crossed
Col. Amory's brigade with all despatch ; bu--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 lor the protection ot the
town, and all necessary precautions were taken.
I sent Company K, Third New York cavalry,
down the Neuse, 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 tho magazine and brought off
four field pieces complete. Besides these, we
had two others, deserted by the enemy, and
the one taken by the Ninth New Jersey. I
left a strong guard in the tow n, under Maj r
Fitzsimmons, to make a demonstration on the
Goldsboro road on that side of the river. Col.
Lcdlie. Third New York artillery, remained to
destroy commissary and quartermasters' stores
and to burn the bridge. Slajor t itzsunmons
advanced some nine miles 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 the direction of Goldsboro. Col.
Ledlie, before leaving Kinston, destroyed a
locomotive, a railroad Monitor, &c
I advanced without opposition to within
three and a half miles of Whitehall, when I
halted for the night. I sent Mnjor Garrard,
with three companies of cavalry, to make a
reconuoisance to Whitehall. tie found one
regiment and four guns on our side of the
bridge over the Neuse ; but they quickly re
treated as he approached, firing the bridge
effectually.
The next morning (16th) I ordered Major
Garrard, with five companies, Third New York
cavalry, and one section of artillery (Twenty
third New Y'ork.) to proceed to Mount Olive, a
station on the Wilmington and Weldon rail
road, fourteen miles below Goldsboro. In
passing Whitehall, en route for Mount Olive,
his command was fired upon from the opposite
side of the river. He placed his guns in posi
tion and returned the fire till the main column
arrived, when he limbered up and proceeded
towards Mount Olive, which point he reached
without opposition. Here he destroyed the
railroad track for about a mile. He then pro
ceeded along the lino of the railroad for lour
miles, and destroyed the bridge over Goshen
Swamp. The track between Mjunt Olive and
the Goshen Svramp 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
New Jersey and Colonel Amory's brigade were
sent forward and posted on the bank of the
river to engage the enemy. I then ordered up
several batteries and posted them on a hill
overlooking the enemy's intrenebments. They
opened, and silenced, after an hour's firing,
the enemy's guns.
Tbe enemy still maintained their admirable
position with sharpshooters ; but defining my
object accomplished. I moved the command fur
ward towards Goldsboro, having sharpshooters
in the rear to continue the fight. We bivouack
ed that night eight miles from Goldsboro, en
countering no further opposition.
On the morning of the 17th I advanced on
Goldsboro. I ordered Mnj r Fitzsimrauns, with
two companies of cavalry, to make a feiut in the
direction of Dudley's Statiou and Evereltsville,
They scattered a small force of enemy there in
every direction, burned two trestlework culverts,
destroyed a train of four rsilroad cars, water sta
tion, depot, &c., as well as some small arms which
tliey were not able to carry jff. and captured a
flag of the enemy. They then returned by a
short cut to the main column. 1 also ordered
Major Garrard, with four companies of cnvclry
and one section of artillery, to make a feint in
the direction of a bridge over the Neuse on our
right, called Thompson's Bridge. He found the
enemy in force, supposed to be on regimeut of
infantry and four pieces of artillery, and the
budge already burned I thou directed, in order
to make the feint more complete and to further
distract the enemy, one regiment (Forty-third
Ma.-aclinsetta) and Angel's battery (Third New
York artillery) to tho support of the cavalry and
to engage tho enemy, winch they did, silencing,
after au hours brisk engagement, tho enemy 's
fire.
Col Leo's brigade was in the advance of tho
main column, and came upon the enemy in small
fof'e on the edge of the woods lining tho rail
road track. Kings' buttery (Third New York
artillery) were placed in position and opened up
on thein, when the enemy retired
The 9th New Jersey were ordered to strike the
railroad Irack and follow it up direct to the bridge
which they were to burn. Three regiments of
Col. Lee's brigade were ordered to their support
("27th. '25th and 3d Mass ). 1 he remaining reg
iment was thrown on the Irft to protect our flank
n that quart, r. General Wessells brigade was
advanced and formed on the hill overlooking the
track, &c. 1 liree regiments were thrown to the
left and the remaining regiments in line, to be
available at any point My artillery was brought
forward and placed in position, firing to the front
and left, principal y at the bridge. The enemy
replied with artillery from the other aide of tbe
river.
Col, Hickman advanced steadily np the track
fighting the enemy's infantry posted at the
bridgeand receiving a flro fiom the artillery in
a Monitor car. on the track of the bridge. After
two hours he reached the bridge, and under a
heavy fiie Lieut. Graham, 2M New York battery,
acting as asd-de CRinp to Colonel Hickman, fired
the bridge AU who had attempted it were
picked 6ft, as was wounded Lieut, li. Ni. Mann,
17tb, Mass., who accompanied him. !
I brought all my artillery to bear to prevent
any effort to save the bridge, and when the fire

In conclusion. I take great pleasure in report
ing on the conduct of the officers aud men under
my command. It was most excellent, and main
tained fully their high reputation. Gvueral Wes
sells' brigade of General Peck's division behaved
like veterans and reflected by their drill and
discipline, and steadiness under fire, the qualities
ot ttieir co rmandiuff omcer.
Colonel Hickman, of the Ninth New Jersey.
was with his admirable regiment, always in ad
vance, and displayed the greatest courage anil
emcienc.y.
The Tenth regiment Connecticut Volun
teers, under Lieutenant Colonel Leggett.fas thec
al ways have done,) behaved in the most gallant
and dxshing manner, making a charge under a
hie which, in twenty minutes, killed and wound
ed ninety men out of three hundred and forty.
Colonel l ot:ei, of the First North Carolina
Volunteers, acted on my staff, and was of the
greatest aid and assistance to me by his coolness
and observation.
I must particularly mention the conduct ot
Lieutenant Georgo W. Graham, Twenty-third
New York Battery, acting as aid to Colonel Hick
man. Throughout the entire march he was
conspicuous for his venturesome courage, and at
Goldsboro, iu company with Lieutenant B. N.
Mann, seventeenth Massachusetts Volunteers.
advanced aud tired the bridge, tinder the fire of
the enemy's infantry and artillery. He only
escaped capture by jumping from the bridge
down the bank. Lieutenant Mann was wounded.
The artillery force under Colonel Ledlie, was
well placed and well served, and the command
ing officers and the batteries, without exception,
did most excellent se vice.
The Third New York cavalry, though not act
ing as a regiment, were in all cases prompt, brave
and efficient, as shown in the body of my report.
Much credit is due to Mr. H. W. Wilson, en
gineer, who, in charge of the pioneers and a force
of contrabands, did most excellent service in
building bridges, repairing roads, &c.
I enclose to General . A. Hitchcock, the list
of paroled prisoners, numbering four hundred
and ninety six.
I herewith enclose lists of the killed, wounded
and missing, showing an aggregate of ninety
killed, four hundred aud seventy -eight wounded
and nine missing.
Among the killed I must mourn Colonel Gray,
of the Ninety-sixth New York regiment. He
was killed at the head of his regiment at the Kin
ston bridge. Though but a few days in this
department, he had already won the high esteem
of all here.
In the charge of the Tenth Connecticut they
lost Capt. H. A. Wells, and Lieutenants II. W3
Perkins, T. D. Hill, and J. C Cuffing, all goorl
and excellent officers, who died doing a gallant
duty.
For many details of distinguished services ot
individual officers I beg to refer to the brigade
aud regimental reports herewith enclosed.
I live the honor to be, very respectful'y, your
obedient servant, J. G FOSTER,

The ecent horrible and supposed tragedy
which occurred recently at the residence of
Mr. Benjamin Turner, on Briganline Beach,
New Jersey, has created considerable feeling
in this city. The facts as related to us are as
follows : . "
Captain Turner and his wife had occasion to
go from home a few days ago. and left tho
house in charge of a son and daughter, aged
respcctivdy-abotit seventeen awl twenty years, '
and with them, also, a little girt- ut lour
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 skill' and decoy ducks with the os
tensible purpose of watching the setting of the
game in the bay for tbe night. It appears
that after putting out tbe decoys he returned
ashore and proceeded to the house of Turner
with the intention of robbing it, knowing that
there was some $500 in gold and silver left
there. Bei-ig intimat with the family, he re
mained a short time, and again took his depar
ture. About twelve o'clock the some night
the brother and sister were aroused from their
slumbers by knocks at the door and a demand
for admittance. They soon recognized the
voice of the neighbor and supposed friend.
The young woman told her brother to go dovi
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 ncov
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.
tttng' the villiun out and
The woman than manag
ed to DrtngToung man to ins oca again.
The buiHod man broke tne door open, rushed
in, and seized turner s gun to linish Ins 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 was again met by the
murd.rjr, who had gone around anl climbed
up the porch to head her off. He had the
gun in his hand 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, and 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 aae.
He then set fire to the house, and it soon lay a
heap of ashes, with tho bones of the murdered
boy and the litlle girl, Smith, who perished in
the flames. On Friday morning he was found
in the bay, lying in his skirt', with half his
head blown from his b jdy, and the gun by his
side discharged. The fither of the supposed
murderer is a respectable man.
