one mile and a half beyond that place. During the day our forces captured 4,600 prisoners, all of whom were paroled, rather than have the army encumbered with them while the battles were in progress. Their loss in killed and wounded was also very heavy. Our loss in this day's fighting was estimated at from 600 to 800 killed, wounded and missing. During this engagement the corps of Gen. Hill, and the division of Maj. Gen. Pender, were principally engaged. On the next day, Thursday, Gens. Ewell and Longstreet engaged the enemy on the right and left, the line of battle extending two miles and a half on each wing. The enemy were driven back, with a loss comparatively small on our side, until their army was concentrated on a commanding hill, two miles beyond the town. This hill was fortified by a stone fence, over and against which dirt had been thrown constituting a formidable bread work. After they had been driven back to this position the fighting for-the day was discontinued

Ewell, who had been at Carline, came up from that direction, and reached a position on our extreme left. Soon after Gen. Hill advanced to the attack. Here Gen. Ewell encountered a large body of the enemy, who had apparently come up from the rear of Gettysburg, and who afterwards constituted the exy was the complete repulse of the enemy from his position, followed by Gen. Hill's and part of Gen. Ewell's corps, who drove them across the range of hills between us and the town, through the town, aight. On Friday Longstreet again opened the fight on the right, which extended to the left, Ewell driving in the enemy's left before him. Thusour whole line surrounded three sides of the mountaithem with great slaughter. Meantime their retreat to the mountain again was intercepted. Gen. Ewell, who had also fallen back from his position on the left, concealed his man from the observatio
