d line and stacked arms, waited for further developments. During the early part of the day, the camp of the corps headquarters was struck, and the wagons packed, numerous other calls made on my men to load forage and other Government property on the cars, besides furnishing several guards. My command was thus occupied till early on the morning of the sixteenth, when, at early dawn, I received orders to move and support a section of the Third United States artillery, under command of Lieutenant Bartlett. The roads impassable, and the horses worn out, great physical exertion was required on the part of the men to keep the section in motion. Beyond this, nothing occurred worthy of notice till reaching Campbell's Station, when I was ordered by General Burnside, in person, to take up position under cover, and support a section of Benjamin's battery. I had a good opportunity for doing so, in a defile, between two fences. While in this position, I was called on by order of General Pott
ed, and, hearing the firing, they opened upon the town with one or two of their heaviest guns. Several shells burst in close proximity to our advance, and Colonel Gooding, after endeavoring to signal the boats by waving his handkerchief, failed to attract the attention of the officers of the fleet. Major Davis, of the Third Rhode Island cavalry, was sent on board to notify the gunboats of the mischief. The rebels embraced the opportunity to retreat, and thus all our efforts to capture them were foiled. Our loss was much heavier than that of the enemy, the cavalry sustaining the entire loss in killed and wounded. I am indebted to Surgeon A. T. Bartlett, of the Thirty-third Missouri volunteers, for the following list of casualties. The wounded are now being placed on board the steamer Jennie Rogers, preparatory to their removal to Alexandria, where suitable hospitals have been established for the reception of sick and wounded troops. Our loss was ten killed and eighteen wounded.
