old tree. carefully preserved, as the one
under which Pocabotitls rescued Smith
from execution,a story we all believed in
very firmly when we were young..
In the morning we moved down to the
James river, to what is called Auld's
Landing. where a pontoon bridge was
thrown across the stream. This was
time lotigert pentOon we had ever seen,
•and probably the longest used during

Our b-ol...ride to Bermuda Hundred
was a mast magnificent one, the weather
being .cool, and th.e moon ehin'ng bright

of_the steamer. on the way up. but there
being no ladies to assist in the amuse

it might. Still
. we 0191Rifell to get through
the night with Msiderahle enjoyment.
It was sa much better than marching in
the hot sun over dusty roads.
After reporting to Gen. Butler, we
moved out to the front, and went into
camp. The day was intensely hot We
moved our camp in the evening, hut did
nothing of any moment.
At midnight. we moved out to the front
again, and, at daylight of the 18th of
June, we passed out of :he fortification
with orders to attack the enemy Who
were on the railroad in our front, the
Richmond and Petersburg railroad.

The order to attack was countermentl

back to camp. We have heard consid

and hear that the colored troops are en

the rebel works in front of Petersburg
On Sunday, June lfith, we moved to
the front of Petersburg, crossing the
Appomattox; and relieving the colored
mops who were engaged yesterday.
Our Adjutant to-day preferred °hare

presence of the enemy, and be was pla

sumed the command of the regiment.—
We remained here on picket along the
