y, and even took several hundred prisoners. But at each new attack, the Confederates bring forward fresh troops, and McCall's Pennsylvanians become exhausted. Hill has at length found the open breach between this division and that of Hooker, and availing himself of this discovery endeavors to turn both of them in succession. On the left of the Federal line, Hooker, fiercely attacked, is obliged to bring all his reserves, and a regiment detached from Sumner's corps, to the assistance of Grover, who commands his first brigade. More to the right another charge is made by the Confederates against Seymour's brigade, forming McCall's left wing, and against two German batteries borrowed from the reserve artillery, which cover it. The gunners are put to flight; a great portion of this brigade is thus placed between two fires; it at once becomes disintegrated, and the fugitives are driven back upon Hooker. The latter allows them to pass through his ranks, and receives the pursuing Confe

enemy in front. This gallant officer remarked to him that such an attack would stand very little chance of success. Hill had actually found in the railroad embankments a real parapet, behind which he could resist many assaults. Pope insisted; Grover's brigade charged with the bayonet, and penetrating between the Confederate brigades of Gregg and Thomas set foot on the embankment. All Hill's troops were concentrated to dislodge them; the rest of Hooker's division hastened to their assistancnding their numerical inferiority, the Federals maintained their position, when Early, throwing himself into the melee, put an end to the struggle and carried off the victory. Kearny, who had been notified too late, only attacked the enemy after Grover's repulse. Movements so badly combined could not succeed. Kearny experienced the same fate as Hooker. While the right of the Federals was sustaining considerable but fruitless losses in these partial engagements, Pope was wondering that he d

he midst of defeat, always succeeded in conciliating public opinion by personal bravery, and ended finally by tiring out adverse fortune. He was, moreover, a respectable politician and a distinguished executive officer. He had been ordered, as we have before remarked, to endeavor to join Sherman in front of Vicksburg by ascending the Mississippi. But on his arrival at New Orleans, he found that he had not sufficient forces to undertake such an expedition. He, therefore, merely sent General Grover, with about ten thousand men, to occupy the town of Baton Rouge, which was to become the base of operations of his future campaign against Port Hudson. It had just been found out, in fact, that the Confederates had turned this place into a formidable obstacle, which it would require a large army and a powerful fleet to overcome. While waiting for the proper time to devote himself to this great task, Banks bethought himself of extending his positions in the district of Lafourche, and
