whom were severely wounded; and of Captain Caskie, Lieutenants McKendree, Hunton, Statham, Early, and Donald. It is with great pain I have to add that the division has to deplore the loss of one of its most gallant officers of artillery, Lieutenant Barton, and two gallant officers of the Twenty-first Virginia regiment, Captain Ames and Lieutenant Swoop, who fell nobly discharging their duty. I take occasion, in conclusion, to acknowledge my obligations to the officers of my staff, Captaine occupied in the morning, and open fire on the enemy at once. Arriving near the point designated, met that officer, who informed me that we were too late, directing that we go back, and go into camp for the night. Casualties: Second Lieutenant D. R. Barton, killed; Second Lieutenant William T. Lambie, wounded severely; private Thomas Hastings, killed; Sergeant F. Karnes, wounded slight; Corporal P. O'Conner, slight; Corporal J. F. Fudge, severe; privates A. Staff, severe; A. J. Barrow,
ed at this wall all night, and during the whole of the third instant, exposed to a cross-fire of the rebel batteries and their sharpshooters. With the latter our best marksmen exchanged shots and succeeded in dislodging many of them. When the regiment entered the engagement on the first instant, it numbered seventeen officers and three hundred and sixty-nine enlisted men. We report at the present time nine officers and one hundred and twenty enlisted men. Captain Wilson French and Lieutenant Barton are the only officers known to have been taken prisoners. The former was wounded in the first day's engagement. We are not aware that either of them was paroled. The regiment behaved gallantly. No troops in the world could behave better. Both officers and men are deserving of great credit for their coolness and bravery throughout the entire three days battle. There are many deserving of especial mention for bravery on the field, but they are so numerous I will not undertake to gi
y were completely dislodged and driven from the hills to a broad plain southward. They would try to hold ridge after ridge, and to cover themselves in the ravines, but the better weapons of the whites were too much for them. They were sparing of ammunition, and probably not over half had firearms. Their number exceeded a thousand warriors. As they were precipitately retreating down the ravines towards the plain, after the last stand, two companies of cavalry, Captain Austin's and Lieutenant Barton's, under the immediate command of Colonel McPhail, took the advance and charged the Indians, doing execution. Corporal Hazlep was shot in the shoulder by an Indian he was riding on to. Colonel McPhail thrust his sabre through the Indian. It was here that a stroke of lightning killed private John Murphy, of Company B, and his horse, and stunned another cavalryman. Colonel McPhail's grasp was loosened on his sword by the shock. He thought a shell had fallen among them. This momentar
front, near Dogan's house. I led up the Zouaves for this important service, leaving the Thirty-eighth under its gallant and experienced Colonel Hobart Ward. Ricketts was soon ordered to take a new position near the Henry house. The Zouaves followed in support, and finally formed line on the right flank of the battery with two companies in reserve. Up to this time the enemy had fallen back, but now he formed the remains of his brigades engaged with Hunter in the morning, viz., Bee's, Barton's and Evans's, in a new line upon Jackson's brigade of fresh troops, making all together six thousand five hundred infantry, thirteen pieces of artillery, and Stuart's cavalry, according to General Beauregard's report. This force was posted in the belt of woods which skirted the plateau southwardly, and lying in the angle formed in that direction, between the Warrenton and Sudley roads, about a mile from the Warrenton road, and with its left resting on the Brentsville and Sudley road. Rick

Two companies of cavalry of Waul's Legion alone were ordered to report to Brigadier-General Barton, at Warrenton. One of the marauding expeditions, under Colonel Grierson, which crossed the Tallahatchie River at New Albany, succeeded in passing directly through the State, and eventually joined General Banks' forces at Baton Rouge, Lopectfully invited to the appendix, and to the reports of division, brigade, and other commanders. I cannot close, however, without expressing my especial thanks to Major-Generals C. S. Stevenson, J. H. Forney, and M. L. Smith, and to Brigadier-Generals Barton, Cummings, Lee, and Colonel A. W. Reynolds, of General Stevenson's division. To Major-General Forney's brigade commanders, Brigadier-Generals Hebert and Moore; to Major-General M. L.

It will be held in readiness either to support the attack on Centreville or to move in the direction of Fairfax Court House, according to circumstances, with its right flank towards the left of Jones' command, more or less distant, according to the nature of the country. The order to advance will be given by the Commander-in-Chief. Fourth.--Brigadier-General Bonham's brigade, supported by Colonel Barton's brigade, will march via Mitchell's Ford, to the attack of Centreville, the right wing to the left of the Third division, more or less distant, according to the nature of the country and of the attack. The order to advance will be given by the Commander-in-Chief. Fifth.--Colonel Cocke's brigade, supported by Colonel Elsey's brigade, will march via Stone Bridge and the fords on the right thereto, to the attack of Centreville; the right wing to the left of the Fourth division, more
time with the enemy to Ripley. Owing to unavoidable circumstances, the brigade was without rations for three days. The officers and men all behaved with coolness and gallantry, and suffered all the hardships incident to the march, with a spirit worthy of good soldiers. Where all behaved so well, it would be difficult to mention by name. I would especially notice, however, Lieutenant Henry W. Watkins, Company A, Jackson's regiment cavalry; also, Corporal Brochus and Privates Britton and Barton, Company C, same regiment; also, Captain Gadi Herron, Lieutenant Cravens, and Lieutenant Foote, First regiment Mississippi cavalry. The latter (Lieutenant Foote) engaged the enemy's advance and checked them in a most gallant manner. The report from Armstrong's brigade does not mention any one especially by name. They all behaved with coolness and gallantry. I am, Major, with high respect, Your obedient servant, H. W. Jackson, Colonel and Chief of Cavalry, Army West Tenn. Genera
