another Division. This however does not justify disrespect. When an officer of the Engineer Regiment is arrested it should always be reported immediately to Col Webster, so that he may appoint some one else to superintend the work they may be overlooking at the time

"Three days since I sent word to Lt Goodrich through Col Morgan to give up an ox team & wagon that have been at the mill six or eight weeks Lt Goodrich sent me back an insolent reply that he would not obey any order of mine no matter what it is if he had obeyed the order & then made a protest I should have thought it all right but his conduct was insubordinate & insulting & without cause. I shall release him as you direct" Telegram received, ibid., Telegrams Received.


To Brig. Gen. Charles S. Hamilton

Holly Springs, Miss Jan: 6th 1863.

BRIG GENL' C. S. HAMILTON
LA GRANGE, TENN:

Nothing from Corinth to-day. Rosecrans has whipped Bragg badly at Murfreesboro', and forced him to fall back. Probably Van Dorn is going there. Sullivan telegraphs that rebels are crossing the Tennessee again. 1 I can hardly think it.

The Tennessee is now up, and the Naval Commander at Cairo says there are several Gunboats up the river. 2

I do not know what day I will be going to Memphis 3 You can go then, or as soon as the troops arrive to replace Ross' Division, which will be to-morrow

Let Lee clean Richardson out if he can 4

U. S. GRANT.
Maj General.
