ng opposed only by four pieces of artillery, supported by a few hundreds of men, belonging to different brigades, rallied by General D. H. Hill and other officers, and parts of Walker's and R. H. Anderson's commands--Colonel Cooke, with the Twenty-seventh North-Carolina regiment, of Walker's brigade, standing boldly in line without a cartridge. The firm front presented by this small force, and the well-directed fire of the artillery, under Captain Miller of the Washington artillery, and Captain Boyce's South-Carolina battery, checked the progress of the enemy, and in about an hour and a half he retired. Another attack was made soon afterward, a little further to the right, but was repulsed by Miller's guns, which continued to hold the ground until the close of the engagement, supported by a part of R. H. Anderson's troops. While the attack on the centre and left was in progress, the enemy made repeated efforts to force the passage of the bridge over the Antietam, opposite the rig
I judge that about five hundred went into the fight on Friday, and about two hundred into that of Monday evening. It will be seen that our loss is more than half the number engaged. We lost, Friday, eighteen killed, and one hundred and ninety-seven wounded and missing; and on Monday, eleven killed and sixty-five wounded and missing--total, two hundred and ninety-one.

I have been greatly indebted to Surgeon Hunt, and Assistant-Surgeon Youngblood, and their assistants, for their indefatigable attention to

I here ordered the Macbeth artillery, Captain Boyce, to advance, occupy the work, and to open fire on the enemy across the river. This point, however, Captain Boyce fouCaptain Boyce found untenable, as the enemy's batteries swept the entire hill and work. He was compelled to retire with the loss of four wounded. The entire loss of my brigade in this engagement was twenty-one killed, (enlisted men;) seven commissioned officers, an,) also attempting to cross the bridge on my right, I ordered an advance, Colonels Colquitt and Iverson on the left, with Boyce's battery, and Colonel Stevens on the right, supported by two batteries of Colonel S. D. Lee's battalion, who came timely, leaving a number of their dead and two stand of colors, the latter having been shot down by a well-directed fire of Captain Boyce's battery. I also requested Colonel Walton, of the artillery, to open fire on the enemy's batteries that had crossed
