IlKAI0.rARTEHS, J DkPAHTMENT OF N"KMI C rtOMNA, r Newborn. Dec. 27, .1SC2. ) 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 and Gen. Wessells' brigade w ire a: once crossed, pushed into the town an 1 hahed. 1 ordered the bridge to be at once repaired It r the crossing ol cavalry and ar'.iilerv. Gen.

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 w as doing its work ordered h counlermarcn lor Newbern, leaving Col.

Col. Lee placed Morrison's battery in position aud recalled his regiment to line. Tho enemy advanced with cheers across the railroad steadily in line upon Ci I Lee's brigade Morrison's battery opened on the advancing line with spherical case, width did good effect; but they advanced steadily u til within three Hundred yarn? oi ins uaneiy, where, unable to stand tho fearful loss they wero sustaining from the battery, they broke aud re treated. Their retreat was unexpectedly covered by a masked battery in the woods on our left. Belger's Khode Island battery, which had been brought back, opened iu reply to the battery and on tw o regiments which came in view supporting their guns liigg's battery, 3d N. Y , artillery, w as placed on an eminence on our left and in line with the enemy : then, bringing a cross fire to bear, they were thereby forced to return, as also a regiment in the woods on cur right Col.

The works being to strong, she, after a gallant resistance, was obliged to retire. 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.

A Man Attempts to Kill Another with an Axe Ili aUter goes to the Rescue She is found Wounded in the Arm The Brother A fteruards Killed in Bed The House Burned, Together with her Body and a Lit tle Girl. 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. lirigantinc Breach adjoins Absccotn on the north. Turner's hotlso is four miles from At lantic City.
