At the date first mentioned the Sixth, Seventh and Eleventh regiments of Virginia cavalry left Snickersville and joined Brigadier General Robertson at Berryville. The Twelfth Virginia cavalry having been sent to picket towards Harper's Ferry, was left on that duty.

The sharpshooters, under Colonel Baylor, joined in the perilous hunt, where the unprotected breasts of our men over-matched the heavy artillery and iron-clad bulwarks of the gunboats. At last the boiler of the Covington was exploded by shot from the battery, and she was fired and Signal, consisting of eight guns, and when the river falls will be able to secure the eight guns of the Covington. Lieutenant Yoist, commanding this battery, reports that he at all times received effective, willing and gallant support from Colonel Baylor and his brigade.

It has conclusively established the fact that our field batteries, when well served and supported, can close the navig
