Let them charge with their Iron Devil, They never shall see our backs-- What, all afloat on our gun-deck? Aye, your sponges and rammers to the racks! Sinking, my hearts, at an anchor-- But never say die till it's o'er! Are you ready there on the spar-deck? We'll give them one round more. Ready all, or the spar-deck? Aye, my lads, we're going down-- She's heeling — but

It has been said that Early, at the head of his faithful band, hovering like an eagle about the columns of Sheridan, displayed more heroic valor than when at the head of his victorious army in Maryland.

Soon after, a considerable body of Federal infantry, under Brigadier-General Taylor, of New Jersey, came in sight — having, it is believed, that morning left Alexandria in the cars — and boldly pushed forward to recover the position and stores which had been lost the previous night.
