many of this noble little band resisted to the death, with clubbed guns, even after his vast hordes had swept over and around the walls. His loss, from reports published in his own newspapers, was a thousand killed and wounded; but, according to the statements of intelligent citizens, it reached two thousand. The inference naturally drawn form Gen. Early's statement is, that on Monday morning Gen. Gordon's command drove the enemy from Marye's hill, which my brigade had failed to hold the day before. I would scorn to detract from the well-earned reputation of this brigade and its gallant commander; but the truth is, the enemy had abandoned Marye's heights, and Gen. Gordon took possession without opposition. My brigade needs no defence at my hands. Its reputation, won upon many battle-fields, is well established. This communication is not written for that purpose, but to correct erroneous impressions which Gen. Early's publication was calculated to make. Wm. Barksdale.
