to Kelly's Ford and commanding it. . . . Presently there appeared a couple of dragoons, with five fresh prisoners. . . . How were you taken? quoth the Provost-Marshal. Well, we were on guard and we went to sleep, and, when we woke up, the first thing we seed was your skirmish line (which was only a roundabout way of saying they were common stragglers). Where is the rest of your army? All gone last night to the breastworks behind the Rapidan! And this was the gist of the matter. We passed Ewell's Headquarters, a little while after, and there I learned that, when news of the capture of the redoubt was brought him, he exclaimed with some profanity, Then it's time we were out of this! and immediately issued orders to fall back, along the whole line, after dark. There we crossed on a pontoon bridge, and found the 5th Corps massed, on the other side. As the cavalcade trotted by, the men all ran to the road and cheered and yelled most vociferously for General Meade. Soon we came up w

sketry died away; and, at a quarter before three, General Griffin rode up — his face was stern and flushed, as it well might be.

Griffin comes in, followed by his mustering officer, Geo. Barnard. He is stern and angry.

The fight of this day had been an attack by parts of our three corps against the Corps of Ewell on our right, and of Hill on our left.

. All are under charge of my excellent classmate, Dr. Ned Dalton. July 6, 1864 We have no rain here — never expect any; air hazy with a faint dust, finer than twice volted flour, which settles on everything — but that won't kill anybody. So Ewell is (or was — don't know his whereabouts at this precise moment) at Harper's Ferry. We knew he was poking up there somewhere. As to the A. of P., it is sitting here, trying to get some fresh cabbages, not very successfully, so far — the last issue, I am told, furnished one small one to every fifteen men. Old Uncle Lee is in posish, as General Williams would say, and seems to remark: Here I am; I have sent off Ewell; now why don't you come on? I suppose you think I speak flippantly of what the French call the situation ; but one gets so desperate that it is no use to be serious. Last night, after I had got to bed, I heard the officer of the day go with a despatch into the General's tent and wake him up. Presently the General said: V

ot-tracks, through his spectacles, to determine by which the main body had retreated. Here we got a great excitement, on learning that, last night, General Williams had conveyed a note from Grant to Lee, demanding his surrender. That, furthermore, Lee had made a reply, and that now General Williams had just gone forward, with a flag, to send an answer. All this looked favorable and gave a new aspect to the whole question! The original idea of sending a note came from the language used by Ewell and his Staff, captured on the 6th. These officers had stated that their position was hopeless and that Lee might surrender, if summoned. The good Williams's mission came near being fatal to the messenger of peace; for, as he got in sight of the rear Rebel videttes and was waving away, to attract their attention, they shot at im and wounded his orderly. However, he persevered, and, with a little care, got his note delivered. We now trotted along what had been, years since, a fine stage

the National and Confederate armies for Washington, the struggle to first pass Bristow Station, on the Central Virginia Railroad, was very hot. Lee pushed Hill and Ewell forward to gain that point before the Nationals should reach it. When they approached it the entire Army of the Potomac had passed it, excepting Gen. G. K. Warrenl was about to attack the 3d Corps, when, at about noon (Oct. 15), he was startled by the appearance of Warren's troops approaching his rear. They had outstripped Ewell's, and were expecting to meet Sykes's at Bristow Station. Hill instantly turned and opened his batteries upon Warren, who was surprised for a moment; but in the ses. A flank attack by the Confederates was repulsed with a loss to them of 450 men made prisoners. This was an effectual check upon Hill's march. Just at sunset Ewell came up, and Warren's corps (5th) was confronted by a greater portion of Lee's army. Seeing his peril, War ren skilfully withdrew under cover of the approaching d
