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. M. of the
11th, with tredollowing forces:
Gen. Wessells brigade of Gen. Peck's divis

We marched the first day on the main Kins
ton road about fourteen miles, when, finding
the road obstructed by felled trees for hall
mile and over, I bivouacked for the night, and
had tha obstructions removed during the night
bv the Dioneers.
I oushed on the next morning; at daylight
My cavalry advance encountered the enemy
when about four miles from the bivouac of the
previous night, and after a sharp but brief
akirmish trie .enemy were routed who some
On arrivinc at the Vine Swamp road, I or
dered Cant. HalL with three companies of
cavalry, to push on up the main Kinston road
as a demonstration, while tne main column
proceeded by the Vine Swamp road to the left,
thereby avoiding the obstructions and the
enemy on the main road. Capt. 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 bridze over Beaver creek being destroyed.
This was rebuilt, and I pushed on, leaving a
regiment (51st Massachusetts) and a section of
artillery (23d New Xorkjat tne onage to noia
It, and to protect the intersection ot tne mam
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
teas some cavalry skirmishing during the day.
On Saturday, the 18th, 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 Nssr York) to hold the po
sition 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 strong, with three pieces of artillery.
The creek was not fordable and ran at the foot
of a deep ravine, making 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 the advance,
pushed gallantly across the creek by swim
ming, by fragments of the bridge and by a
milldam and formed on toe opposite bank ;
at the same time the 85th Pennsylvania, oi
Gen. Wessells brigade, forced a passage by
the felling of trees and fording, about half a
mile 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 croBBed the remainder of Gen. Wessels'
"brigade. CoL Hickman, with the 9th New
Jersey, advanced, and was fired upon when
about one mile lrora 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 Wesscll
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, 8d New York cavalry, and Morrison's bat
tery, 3d New York artillery, bad quite a skir
mish with the enemy, but drove them, and
camped for the night From the south side of
tho creek I sent a company of cavalry to strike,
and proceed up the Kinston road No. 2. . I was
on No. 8. The company proceeded up the
road toward Kinston, and found the enemy
posted by a bridge, which was prepared to be
destroyed. The company 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 nrtillery, pro
ceeded on a reconnaissance on a road leading
to Whitehall. After following this Toad 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 tho 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
The Ninth New Jersey were deployed as
skirmishers, and Gen. Westell's brigade, with
Morrison's battery. Third New York 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
sons' 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 large field on the right of the road and
about three fourths of a mile in rear of line or
attack, (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 battery, and the Fifth lihodc
Island, 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 flank.
The Tenth Connecticut advanced steadily to
the extreme frontrelieving two reg. of Wessels'
brigade who were short of ammunition, and,
after receiving a horrible fire lor sonic twenty
minute-!, made a most gallant charge, in con
junction with the Ninety-sixth New York
Volunteers, of General Wessells' brigade,
which, with Ihe advance already made (slowly
but surely) ef the whole line, forced the eneuy
to retreat precipitately from the bridge, over
the Neuse, which they cro.dr tiring the
bridge, which had been prepared for that pur
pose. Several regiments were so close, how
ever, that about four hundred prisoners were
taken from the enemy. A Una w.-rs formed to
the river and the tire extinguished belure great
tj.Tin.-ige was done.
The Ninth New Jersey, Seventeenth Mt-sh-chusitts
and Gen. Wessells.' brignde were al
mce crossed, pushed into the town and halted.
I ordered the bridge to be at once repaired fur
the crossing ot cavalry and artillery. Gen.
Kvans retired about two miles from town with
his command and formed line of battle. 1
sent a flag of truce to ini".iirt wlu'i-ex he pro
posed to surrender. He declined. 1 iuiuitfdi- i
ately prepared to attack him, but, knowing he!
hid three light Latteries mii ouc sictijy to 1
start with, was unwilling to sacrifice my men,
and waited for my artillery to cross. I ordered
batteries E and I, Third New York Artillery,
to shell the woods with their twenty pounder
I'arrotls, from the opposite bank, and crossed
Col. Amorv's brigade with all despatch ; but
before I could attack, the enemy had retired,
aid, 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 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 unable to remove. Captain
Cole destroyed the magazine and brought off
lour 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 town, under Major
Fitzsimrions, to make a demonstration on the
Goldsboro 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 miles in the direction of
Goldsboro, when, hearing the whistle of a lo
comotive, 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
locomotive, a railroad Monitor, Ac.
I advanced without opposition to within
three and a half miles of Whitehall, when
halted for the night I sent Major Garrard,
with three companies of cavalry, to make a
reconnoisance to Whitehall. He found one
regiment and four guns on our side of the
bridge ever the Neuse ; but tbey quickly re
treated as he approached, bring the bridge ef
The next morning (loth) 1 ordered Motor
Garrard, with bve companies, Ihird New irk
Cavalsy, and one section ot artillery, (Twenty
third New York,) 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 tired upon lrom the opposite
side of the river. He placed bis guns in posi
tion and returned the bre till the main column
arrived, when he limbered up and proceeded
towards Mount Olive, which point he reached
ithout opposition. Here he destroyed the
railroad track for about a mile. He then pro
ceeded along the line of the railroad for four
miles, and destroyed the bridge over Goshen
Swamp. The track between atount Olive 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 wake a strong
leint, as U to rebuild and cross. I he Ninth
New Jersey and Colonel Amory's brigade were
sent forward and posted on the bank of the
river to engage the enemy. 1 then ordered up
several batteries and posted them an a hill
overlooking the enemy's intronchments. They
opened, and silenced, alter an Hour s firing,
the enemy's guns.
The enemy still maintained their admirable
position with sharpshooters ; but deeming my
object accomplished, I moved the command for
ward towards Goldsboro, having sharpshooters
in the rear to continue the fight. We bivou
acked that night eight miles from Goldsboro,
encountering no further oppoakiw. . .
On the morning of the 17th I advanced on
Goldsboro, I ordered Maj. r Fitssiuimons, with
two companies of cavalry, to make a feint in the
direction of Dudley's Station and Everettsville,
They scattered a small force of enemy there in
every direction, burned two treatlework culverts,
destroyed a train of four railroad cars, water sta
tion, depot, as well as some small arms which
tliey were not able to carry off. and captured a
Aug of the enemy. They theu returned by a
short cut to the main column. I also ordered
Major Garrard, with four companies of cavelry
and one section of artillery, to make a feint in
the direction of a bridge over tbe Neuse on our
right, called Thompson's Bridge. He found the
euumy in force, supposed to be ons regiment of
infantry and four pieces of artillery, and the
bridge already burned I then directed, in order
to make the feint more complete and to further
distract the enemy, one regiment (Forty third
Massachusetts) and Angel's battery (Third New
York artillery) to tliu support of the cavalry and
to engage the enemy, winch they did, silencing,
after an hours brisk engagement, the enemy's
Col. Lee's brigade was in the advance of the
main column, and came upon the enemy in small
force on the edge of the woods lining the rail
road track. Rings' battery (Third New York
artillery) were placed in position and opened up
on Ibem, when the enemy retired
The llth New Jersey were ordered to strike the
railroad track and follow it up direct to the bridge
wl.ieh they were to burn. Three regiments of
Col. Lee's brigade weie ordered to their support
("27th. &"th and 3d Mass). The remaininif reg
iment was thrown on tho left to protect our flank
in that quartt-r. General Wessells' brigade was
advanced and formed on the hill overlooking the
track, &o. Three legiinents were thrown to the
left and the remaining regiments in hue, to he
available at any point My artillery was brought
forward and placed in position, tiring to the frout
aud left, principal'y at the bridge. The enemy
replied With artillery from the other sidoof the
Col, Hickman advanced" steadily up tbe track
fighting the enemy's infantry posted at the
bridge, and receiving a ore from the nrtillery in
a Monitor car, on the track of the bridge. After
two hours he reached the bridge, and under a
heavy me .Lieut. Graham, 2iJd New York battery,
acting as aid-de carnp to Colonel HickmaD, tired
the bridge. All who had attempted it were
picked off, as was wounded Lieut, 11. N. Mann,
J7tb, Mass., who accompanied lino.
I brought all my artillery to bear to rn-eVent
any effort to save the bridge, and when the fire
was doing its work ordered a countermarch for
Newbern, leaving Col. Lee's brigade to form the
rear guard. Col. Lee was forming his biigade
to leave the field, deeming the fight over, when
three regimental colors were seen across the rail
road track, the men protected by tbe embank
ment on which tho track was laid. Col. Lee
placed Morrison's battery in position and recalled
his regiment to line. The enemy advanced with
cheers across the railroad steadily in line upon
Col Lee's brigade. Morrison's battery opened
on the advancing line with spherical-case, which
did good effect; but they advanced steadily un
til within three hundred yard? of tha battery,
where, unable to stand the fearful loss they were
sustaining from the battery, they broke aud re
treated. Their retreat was unexpectedly covered
by a masked battery in the woods on oar left.

brought back, opened iu reply to tlie battery And

their guns liigg's battery, o J N. Y , artillery,

to bear, they were thereby forced to return, Hs

Lee, having ordeis not to attempt iii.y further
move, again formed his brigade and batteries
and proceeded to join the column which I had
haulted on hearing th"o firing from Col. Lee.
i his was a bold attempt of the enemy to en
trap and secure Col. Lee's bi igade aud Morrison's
battery. Owing to the efficiency of Col Los and
Morrison's battery it was a disastrous failure.
With a strong cavalry rear guard, I then start
ed on my return by the liie.t road, took and
transported my sick a. : -., tided men f.om
Whitehall and Kiuton, . ng them all safely
to this point.
On the 13th n fleet of srr.all boats left New ben
under Cfifajau'Jvr Murray , United Slates Jiavy,
to attack the works on the river at Kinston. but
owing to tbe lowness of the water in the river
only one small boat the Allison, under Colonel
Manchester, Marine artillery was brought into
action. The works being to strong, she, after a
gallant resistance, was obliged fo retire.
In conclnsion. I take great pleasure in report
ing on the conduct of the officers and men under
my command. It was most excellent, and main
tained fully tbeir high reputation. General Wes

like veterans, and reflected by their drill and
discipline, and steadiness under fire, the qualities
of their co mmanding officer.

A IT1 t-laac klr Hisiry.
At Mosa, Canada, on the 27th of December, a
respectable young woman named Ann UcCallum
committed suicide in despair at her desertion by
her lover, a farmer named Donald McLaughlin.
Tbey bad been engaged.in Detroit.for thrm vaam.
and the wedding day was fixed. - McLaughlin
bad somely promised tne girl marriage, repeated
ly fixed the day for the nuptials, and as often
broke bis word. Ann retnrned to her father's
house, took laudnnm and died, bnt not antill ber
cries bad alarmed the house ; her mother was
quickly at her bedside ; she threw her arm
around her parents neck ; prayed God to bare
mercy on her soul, and died tn a few minutes.
A yonne man on a visit to his brothers and
sister, at Hilton township, Bucks county, Pa.,
fMumou a cane as nis sister, as tnongn It was a
gun. The sister laughed, and the matter passed
off. Presently he picked op a gun and pointed
it at her. She remonstrated, and said she did
not like such fun. ' Scarcely were the words ont
or tier mouth when he pulled the trigger, and
sen tbe load into ber neck, from the effect of
which she expired almost instantlv. The con
duct of the young man, whose name was George
faring, was rather mysteriona. He left the
house immediately after the affair, and did not
arrive at the place where he wished until fonr
in the morning. He did not appear to be at ail
affected at the sad occurrence. He was subse
quently arrested on the charge of murder.
NARROW EsCAPt As W. C. Parker, a young
man v.;i years of age was chopping in the woods
in Bedford on Monday last, in felline a tree it
lodged against the limbs of another tree. II
climbed the tree to cnt off the limb, and in dninir
so, the lodged tree slid down the limb, catching
nis ngnt leg just above the knee, holding linn
fast. His axe was also caught by the helve. A
Mr. Gilmore. near a quarter of a mile off. heard
his cries for help, and comine to his assistance
succeeded in effecting his release. The leg was
not broken, but much' brotsed and flattened.--
The Only Notion that hns Paid iu Drttte.
The United States has paid every cent of two
national debts, each greater in proportion to tbe
population and resources of tho people than tho
present prospective debt. On the 1st of January,
"I, the public debt was S76.463.176 : this was
successively reduced until JSl'2, when it amnnut
ed to .4r.2ll!) 7:t7. The war of 1812 raised it
to $127.'.?34.t:13 in 116 ; the debt was thorough-
y cancelled in 1SJ6. and in addition, 2d,000,000
of surplus divided proportionately among the
States. The ITnited States has the rare honor of
being the only Great Government that has paid
her debts, with a surplus, and this without hav
ing oppressed her people with excessive taxa
tion. The Rebel Gexeiial Rains. Tho rebel
Gen. Rains, who was killed at the battle of
Murfrcesboro. was a native of Wilson county,
Tennessee. He was the son of a loyal clergy
man, who is still residing in Nashville, and
received his education at the North, graduat

sequently he studied law and settled in Nash
ville, where he married a Miss Yeatman, a stepi
daughter of that apostate " Union " candidate
for the Presidency, John Bell. General Rains
