Carlisle's Battery of Light Artillery, six (6) brass guns. To Capt. Carlisle's command was also attached the large Parrott gun, 30-pounder, under direction of Lieut. Haines, of the artilsted close to the road on the right. This was 1 P. M. Capt. Carlisle, while we thus rested, was playing with much apparent time, Capt. Alexander succeeded in opening a passage. Capt. Carlisle's battery was now posted on the hillside, in the open hould send to me the 30-pounder rifled gun attached to Capt. Carlisle's battery. At the same time I shifted the New York Sik the enemy's right and centre.
