old reconnaissance had revealed to General Lee the weak points of his adversary. On the morning of the 13th a brigade of cavalry, about one thousand two hundred strong, and accompanied by a few pieces of artillery, left Richmond under command of General Stuart. Its destination was a profound secret. Following the road to Louisa Court-house, as if on his way to reinforce Jackson, Stuart encamped in the evening at the railway-bridge of Aquia Creek, on the South Anna. Before daylight on the 14th, he turned suddenly to the right in the direction of Hanover Court-house, where two squadrons of the Fifth regular cavalry were performing picket duty. The first squadron, surprised by the appearance of the Confederates, was quickly dispersed. The second, taking advantage of the narrowness of the road, which compelled the enemy's troopers to march by fours, charged them vigorously without concern as to their numerical superiority. Being closely packed within this narrow defile, the two det

espatching Spaulding's convoy with a load which could not fail to render the trip impossible at that season of the year. If the wagons and the materiel which were shipped on the Occoquan on the 24th had followed the forty-eight boats that came down the Potomac on the 16th, the whole equipage would have reached Belle Plaine on the 18th; and in default of horses from Washington, the army teams could have conveyed them immediately to the borders of the Rappahannock. We have said that, on the 14th, Burnside issued all the necessary orders for marching his army from Warrenton to Falmouth. Besides the pontons he expected to find at this place, he had asked for the construction of landing-piers at Aquia Creek, but this work, which the shallow waters in the bay rendered indispensable, could only be undertaken under the protection of the army. On leaving Warrenton he struck the Orange and Alexandria Railroad near Elktown; his troops had to be revictualled on their passage along this railw

On the 14th, whilst his cavalry was pushing some reconnaissances far in a westerly direction, Foster turned toward the north in order to reach the railroad bridge on the Neuse, situated at two or three kilometres south of Kingston. Evans with his brigade, numbering about two thousand men, was awaiting him at this place. He had taken a good position in front of the bridge, across the road and along the edge of a wood which crowned the summit of a steep acclivity; his left rested on the Neuse, and his ri
