ickahominy. Toward four o'clock in the afternoon the officers of the signal corps announce the approach of the enemy. Smith, being hastily recalled by his chief, has barely time to throw Hancock's brigade on Richardson's right, to extend his line by resting it upon a thicket, which the enemy will presently take from him, and at the same time to send Brooks' brigade to the extreme left. The latter general arrives just in time to occupy the wood stretching along the road, and to reinforce Burns' troops, of Sedgwick's division, who are keeping up an unequal fight from their position across this road. Magruder, in fact, taking advantage of the gap made by Heintzelman's unhoped — for departure, has with his wonted vigor hurled his own and McLaws' division against the weakest point of the Federal line.

The embankment of an unfinished railroad covered Hancock's left to within a certain distance of the stone wall; his centre as well as his right was utterly unprotected. Nevertheless, his whole line reached and passed beyond the flags planted by French; but when within twenty or twentyfive metres of the wall, it also halted, and all those who had gone beyond were instantly struck down. The Federal line wavered, without, howeve
