After ascertaining the condition and

rosist an nsiault.be informod mo that
be had received unofficial information
that Oon. Grant had repulsed Oon.
Bragg' army at Chatatiooga, and Gen.
Sherman, with hi command, wa en
rout for Knoxvillo; that if General
Longstreot wa not already informod
of the result ho would soon bo, and
would surely attack Knoxville before
Gen. Sherman could arrive. The con
versation turned upon' tho probable
point of attack, and Oon. Uurnsido
strongly asserted it would be at the
rivor, either north or south of tho city;
that Fort Sanders boing the most
available for Oen. Longstreet to con-
centroto his lorces upon, It most line-
lv would be the point of attack, and
the fort must be reinforced, and that
bo had some doubts of tho proprioty
of trusting o important a command
to o young an officer as Lieut, Benja
min. I thon venturod the finery whether
he had any regular officer in hi army,
with exporienco in the field in com
mand of artillery, to relieve Lieut.
Benjamin. It being decided that Maj.
Roeiner could not be relieved from the
fort on Colloge Hill, immediately east
ol Fort Sanders, I wa then instructed
to report the military situation to Oen.
Julius White, of the Second Division,
Twenty third Corp. The interview
wa then adjournod to 2 p. m., with
the request that Gen, White bo present.
At 2 p.m. Gen. White wa unable to
bo present and Oen. Uurnsido then ini
formed me he baa reiniorcea rori
Sander with one section each from
M11J. Roemer'a and Berkley' butteries,
leoving my friend, Liuut. Bcrjamin, in
command. He tbeu procoeded to give
me full instruction for commander of
the infantry force in caie of an at
tack; that Capt, Lee of tho U. 3. Army,
should command the reserve inlantry,
which should support the tort on the
east; that Oen. Ferrero would support
it ou the west. If the fort wa cap
tured, or line broken, then we must
with all the available force of the
Twonty third corps reUke it or hold
Oen. Lonatreot't force at Run No.2, ou
the touth of the city, immediately in
the rear of the fort. In cao th j could
not be done and it became necessary
to vacate the city, full instruction
were given for the retreat, but- in no
case to turrender tho force.
