Major Gen. II. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief
U. 8. Army, naiiungton, u. v. :
General Referring to my letters of Decem
ber 10th, 14th and 2ith, I have the honor to
report that I left this town at 8 A. M. of the
llih, with tledbllowing forces:
Cen. Wessells' brigade of Gen. Peck's divis
ion, kindly loaned to me.
Col. Auiory'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.

And Hie Inird rtew lorkx cavalry, oi aoouc
We marched the first day on the main Kins-
ton road about fourteen miles, when, finding
the road obstructed by felled trees for hall a
mile and over, I bivouacked for the night, and
had tha 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 the bivouac of the
previous night, and after a sharp but brief
skirmish tne .enemy weTe rouiea wun some
On arrivinc at the Vine Swamp road, I or
dered Cant. Hall, with three companies of
cavalry, to push on up the main Kinstsn road
as 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. Capt. Hall encoun
tered the enemy in some force ; but alter a
severe fight whipped them, taking eighteen
prisoners and lulling 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 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 New 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 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 the advance,
pushed gallantly across the 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, ol
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
his 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 9th 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. Ac., 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, 3d New York cavalry, and Morrison's bat
tery, 3d New York artillery, had quite a skir
mish with the enemy, but drove them, anil
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. 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 artillery, pro
ceeded on a reconnoissance 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 fro-n 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 lueir left was partially protected oy tne
The Ninth New Jersey were deployed as
skirmishers, and Gen. Wessell'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 oT 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 i tn
road. My artillery (three batteries) I posted j
in a large neia on tne ngnt oi ttie rona ana
about three fourths of a mile in rear of line of
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 Filth Khode
Island, Tenth Connecticut and Forty fourth
Massachusetts bits ordered forward, the two
former on the left of the road, and the latter i
on the right, to support the regiments there in J
pushing the enemy and turning that Hank.
The Tenth Connecticut advanced steadily to
the extreuiefront,relieving two reg. of Wessels'
brigade who were short of ammunition, and,
after receiving a horrible fire lor sonic twenty
minutes, made a most gallant charge, in con
junction with the Ninety-sixth New York
Volunteers, of General Wessells'' brigade,
which, nith the advance already made (slowly '
but Surely) ef the whole line, forced the enemy I
to retreat precipitately from the bridge, over f
the Neuse. which thev cro.wtd. Urinjr the ,
bridge, which h:id been prepared for that tur-
pose. Several regiments were so close, how
ever, that about four hundred prisoners were
taken from the enemy. A lino was firmed to
the river and tbe lire extinguished before great
thtmngc was done.
The Ninth New Jersey, Seventeenth Massa
chusetts and Gen. Wessells brigade were at
nce t russed, pnsbed into the town and halted.
I ordered the bridge to be at onoo repaired lor
the crossing ot cavalry and artillery. Cen.
Evans retired about two miles from town with
his command and formed line of battle. 1
Rent a Hag of truce to inoaire wbctl er he ro
lxiscd to surrender. He declined, t iuimwdi
iv prepared to attack linn, tint, Knowing tie
hid three light batteries ouU uuc section to
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. Amory's brigade with all despatch ; but
before I could attack, the enemy had retired,
a. id, it being by this time night, I was unable
to pursue, and, moreover, my object was ac
couiplished. The troops bivouacked in the
fields beyond the town thai night, a provost
guard was established for the protection of the
town, and all necessary precautions were taken.
1 sent Company K. Third New York Cavalry,
down the Neuse, to a work commanding the
river. They reported it deserted, with tlx
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 tho 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, Ac.
I advanced without opposition to within
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
reconnoisance to Whitebait. He found one
regiment and four guns on our side of the
bridge over the Neuse ; but they quickly re
treated as he approached, bring the bridge ef
fectually. The next morning (16th) I ordered Major
Garrard, with five companies, Third New York
Cavalsy, and one section of artillery, (Twenty
third New York,) to proceed to Mount Oiive, a
station on the Wilmington and Weldon rail
road, fourteen miles below Goldsboro. In
passing Whitehall, en route for Mount Olive,
his command was hred 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, lie then pro
ceeded along the line of the railroad for four
miles, and destroyed the bridge over Goshen
Swamp. The track between iriount 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, determined to make a strong
feint, as if to rebuild an., cross. The Ninth
New Jersey and Colonel Amory's brigade were
sent forward and posted on the bank of the
riter to engage the enemy. I then ordered up
several batteries and posted them on a hill
at blocking the enemy's intronchmenU. They
opened, and silenced, after 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 oppqriii
On the morning of the 17th I advanced on
Goldsboro. I ordered Msjt r Fitasiinuions, with
two companies of cavalry, to make a feint in the
direction of Dudley' Station and Kverettsville,
They scattered a small force of enemy there in
every direction, burned two trestlework culverts,
destroyed a train of four railroad cars, water sta
tion, depot, &c., ns well as some small arms which
they were not able to carry jff, and captured a
flag of the enemy. They then returned by a
short cut to the main column. I also ordered
Major Garrard, with four companies of eavolry
and one section of artillery, to make a feint in
tho direction of a bridge over the Neuse on our
right, called Thompson's Bridge. He found the
enemy in force, supposed to be one regiment of
infantry and four pieces of artillery, and the
biidge already burned I then directed, in order
to make tho feint more complete and to further
distract the enemy, one regiment (Forty third
Massachusetts) and Angel's battery (Third New
York artillery) to the 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 Id 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. Risers' battery (Third New York
artillery) were placed in position and opened up
on them, when the enemy retired
The 9th New Jersey were ordered to strike the
railroad track and follow it up direct to the bridge
which they were to burn. Three regiments of
Col. Lee's brigade weie ordered to their support
("27th. 2Tth and 3d Mass). The remaining reg
iment was thrown on tho left to protect our flank
in that quarter. General Wessells' brigade was
advanced and formed on the hill overlooking the
I track, &e. Three legimeuU were thrown to the
jeft anj tho
remaining regiments in line, to be
available at any point My artillery was brought
forward and placed in position, flring to the frout

Col, Hickman advanced steadily up the track
fighting tho enemy's infantry posted at the
bridge, and receiving a fire from the artillery in
a Monitor car, on the track of the bridge. After
two hours he reached the bridge, and under a
heavy file Lieut. Graham, 23d New York battery,
acting as aid-de camp to Colonel HickmaD, tired
bridge All who had attempted it were
nicked off. as was wounded Lieut, 1$. N. Maun.
17th, Mass., who accompanied him
I brought all my artillery to bear to prevent
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. Leo was forming his brigade
to leave Ihe field, deeming the fight over, when
three regimental colors were seen across tho rail
road track, the men protected by tbe embank
ment on which tbe track was lata. 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
I on the advancing line with spherical-case, which
did good effect ; but they advanced steadily un
til within three hundred yards of tha battery,
where, unable to stand the fearful loss they were
sustaining from the battery, they broke and re
treated. Their retreat was unexpectedly covered
by a masked batter? tn the woods on onr left

move, again formed his brigade and batteries
and proceeded to Join the column which I had
baulted on bearing tltc firing from Col. Lee.
'i his was a bold attempt of the enemy to cn
trap and secure Col. Lee's brigade and Morrison's
b.'.tttry. Owing to Iho efficiency of Col Lee
Morrison's battery it was a disastrous failure.
With a strong cavalry rear guard, I then s'art- j

In conclusion. 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 their high reputation. General We

At Mosa. Canada, on the 27lh of December, a
respectable young woman named Ann McCallum
committed suicide in despair at her desertion by
her lover, a farmer named Donald McLaughlin.
Tbey bad been engaged. in Detroit.for three vsirn
and the wedding day was fixed. McLaughlin
had somely promised the girl marriage, repeated
ly fixed the day for the nuptials, and as often
broke his word. Ann returned to her father's
house, took laudnnm and died, bnt not ontill her
cries bad alarmed the house ; her mother was
quickly at her bedside ; she threw her arm
around her parents neck ; prayed God to have
mercy on her soul, and died in a few minutes.
A young man on a visit to his brothers and
sister, at Hilton township, Bucks county. Pa.,
pwiiitod n cane at hia sister, as though ft was a
gun. The sister laughed, and the matter passed
off. Presently he picked up a gnn and pointed
it at her. She remonstrated, and said she did
not like snch fun. Scarcely were the words out
of her mouth when he pulled the trigger, and
sent the load into ber neck, from the effect of
which she expired almost instantly. The con
duct of the young man, whose name was George
Haring, was rather mysterious. He left tho
house immediately after the affair, and did not
arrive at the place w hare he wished until four
in the morning. He did not appear to be Ht all
affected at the sad occurrence He was subse
quently arrested on the charge of murder.
Narrow EsCAP. As W. C. Parker, a yoang
man 25 years of age was chopping in the woods
in Bedford on Monday last, in felling a tree it
lodged against the limbs of another tree, lie
climbed the tree to cut off the linib.and in doing
so, the lodged tree slid down the limb, catching
his right leg just above the knee, holding him
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 coming to his assistance
succeeded in effecting his release. The leg was
not broken, hut much braised and flattened.
The Only Nation that tins Paid its Debts.
The United States has paid every cent of two
national debts, each greater in proportion to the
population and resources of the people than tho
present prospective debt. On the 1st of January,
1791, Hie public debt was $76,463,176 ; this was
successively reduced until 1812, when it amount
ed to 945.209.737 The war of 1812 raised it
to $137,334,943 in 116; the debt was thorough-
y cancelled in 1836, and in addition. $36,000,000
of surplus divided proportionately among the
States. The Cnited States has the rare honor of
being the only Great Government that has paid
her debts, with a surplus, and this without hav
iug oppressed her people with excessive taxa
tion. Tiik Rebel General Rains. The rebel
