On Wednesday last, howo^er, the bad
"condition of the roads, the proximity of
the enemy, their evident intontion to force
a fight, and ofher circumstances, combing
ed to induce General Hardee to maire a
stand. His array was then about four
miles from Averysboro, i? the vicinity of
what is known as Smith's farm. Colonel
.jgtett with his brigade of South Carolina
RcgUuii'?- (consisting of the 1st Artillery,
ist Infantry, Lucas' battalion of
Heavy Artillery) constituted the rear
Skirmishing and sharpahooting com?
menced about noon, and our troops at oiicc
set to work in throwing np such slight- en
trciichtnents as the means ?at hand per?
mitted. A few rails here, logs there, and
a"bwheh of limbs sprinkled with dirt was
all "that conld be had to answer the tem?
porary purpose ' On this day no deter?
mined advance -was made by the enemy...
Our ow.li army, however, lost one ot ita
bravest and promising officers. Col. Bhett,
commanding, the rear guard. Impelled
by tluxt restless energy which character
ized him while in command of -Kort Suui
ter, and a desire to know personally the
condition of affairs in his front, he made
a jjBrsonnl reconnoissance beyond, our
picket lines, and near those of the foe.?
? !>? ?:?] sluft^.oivled to hT^csrpUire: He
now wrlr?7]i against his name, calls up
the most painful apprehensions.
Daylight on Tuesday revealed the ene?
my in position, and cviderttly about to
give battle. Our own troops were in line
behind their works?it may -he diguifiod ?
by such a name?and with enthu.siaiim
awaked .the onset. Opposite out left a
dense undergrowth of smajl pines limited
tho view. Colonel Butler, of the first in?
fantry, was in command of tho brigade,
and Lieut. Col. TDcTrcville commanded
that rcgiment. . ?
Skirnnshing commenced "at early hour
along the entire line, and about 7 o'clock
th8 enemy atacked our left in force. Tho
men met it splendidly. Disciplined liko
the regulars of .tho old army, ami for more
than a year and a half daily and- nightly
under the fire of the Federal artillery on
Sumter and on Sullivan's and James' Is-,
lands, they have become inured to dan?
ger and hardship; but this was their first
meeting with'their old adversaries on tiro
open field, and one for which they had,
longed without ceasing.
Tho manner in which they availed
themselves of this, the first opportunity
presented to prove their eclat, testified
their earnest .purpose. The Federals
might as well have struck a solid wall.
Until ordorcd to fall back, the men stood
in their places, receiving'and returning
the battle fire with cheeks unblanehcd.
Two divisions of Slocum's corps', Kilpa't
riek's cavalry, and superior numbers of
artillery were in tho front, pressing with
all their might, but our lines rom3iricdin
tact. Three of our light 12-poundcr guns
added to the effectiveness of; our defence.
One of theso belonging to Le Gaj'doaux's
battery planted on our right, assisted to
check the enemy there, but in a short
time tho latter brought up a battery and
within five hundred yards opened upon
this single piece what is described to us
as a perfect '/hell storm of fire." Horses
and men went down before the tornado
until but one of each remained, and tho
giiii was then abandoned to its fate. "
Failing to produce any effect on the
left, the attack was transfcred to the
right flank. Here wo had no defences,
. and by reason of the paucity of numbers
could only meet tho rapid combinations
of tho enemy with a line of skirmishers
consisting of "four companies. For a time
these held ah entire bigade.in chock, but
the latter finally charged, broke through;
and forced us to fall back. Simultaneous?
ly the Federals attacked our rijj.ht front,
and thus, between t! 13 triangular; fire, it
became necessary to. aba:. . .. tn< first
liue. In so doing many of cur wounded
fell into tho hands of the Federals.
IT was. now about half-past' twelve
o'clock, F. M. Falling back.hs.lf a mile,
cur force occupied a second line, and met
ft brigadg.-ill reserve, under command of
General Stephen Ehiott. " Here the fight
Was again obstinately renewed and con?
tested; but the enemy, swooping around
our right flank, compelled in tho ? course
of tho afternoon, an abandonment, of the j
uecond line and a retreat to. the tlfrrtl.? j
The Federals had been wearried and ex?
hausted, had lost heavily^ in killed and
wounded, .and the bold front presented at
tlio third lino, with its -flanks protected
?by. swamps, compelled them 4o desist

ceased. jSo further attempt wus?mado to

General?Your two letters of the 20th
iust., were received yesterday. In regard
to any apprehended misunderstanding in
reference to the exchango'of political pris?
oners, I think there need bo none.
Gen. Ord or.. Gen. Longstrcet have
probably misunderstood what I said tbr
to the former on tho subject, or I .may
have failed to make myself understood,
possibly. A fojv days beforo tho inter?
view botweens'Gcns. Longstrcet and Ord,
I had received a dispatch from Gen. Huff?
man, Commissary General of..prisoners,
stating in substance, that all prisoners of
war wore or had been in closo confine
naent or irons, whether under charges of
sentences, had been ordered to City Point
for exchange. I forwarded tho substance
of that dispatch to Lieut. Col.'Mulford,
Assistant Agent- of Exchange, and pre?
sumed i? probablo that he had commu?
nicated it to Col. Eo. Ould. A day or
two after an offender, who was neither a
prisoner of war nor a political prisoner,
was executed after a fair and impartial
trial, and in accordance with the laws of
war and the usages of civilized nations.
It was in explanation of this class of cases
that I told Gen. ?rd to speak to Gen.

Destruction of Cheraw, S. C.
. Chancellor Inglis, of Cheraw, commu?
nicates to tho South Carolinian^ some par
ticufafs of ths destruction ofthat place,
derived from a.surgeon who was present
during t ho occupation and'departure of j
Sherman's army;. He says :
"The entire business portion of the tcfUm
??that is, Frant street?is burned to the
ground, except one house, which from his
description of the locality, I suppose to be
the only building on the street which was J
occupied by a .private family. That fact
demonstrates that the burning of the stores
and warehouses was not accidental,'but
that, on. the'contrary, the enemy cOuld 1
and did conifrol tho extent of the confla?
gration according tp their pleasure.?
There was not sufficient other force there,
to restrain the flames. J.\o dwelling in !
tho bod}"- of the town was . burned. Sev?

were burned, including mvown andbro?h- i

Cheraw on the second day. He was not
at Society Hill, as reported nor was any

party of 2,500 went down that way, and
on to Florence, whence they were repuls?
ed by 120 of our men left thcro in charge
of the prisoners who wore too sick to bo
removed. What this party accomplished
on their.routc, so long as.they encounter-j

"The condition of the pcoplo of Cheraw
must bo deplorable.; Tho population ofj

tremely difficult to get firo wood, and al?
most impossible to biiy corn or meat. In
ordinary timos the wants of tho town in
these- particulars, aro largely supplied
from ."North Carolina. The destruction
of the bridges on tho Pee Dec and Thonip-.
son's Creek has almost isolated the town.
Even if the adjoining country had a sup?
ply, it would be almost impossible, owing
to these obstructions and their depriva?

themselves to procure it. Tho whole ofj
