I left my encamp, he made several counter charges, to save his dismounted men and check our rapid advance. At one time he had nearly succeeded, when the Eighth Ohio cavalry, (Colonel Heath,) who had been sent out on our right, charged the enemy in flank and rear, when he gave way at all points, and rapidly fell back to the town of Waynesboro. h Ohio cavalry, at East-Macon; Colonel Acker and his regiment, Ninth Michigan ; and Colonel Jones, Eighth Indiana, when cut off and surrounded near Waynesboro; Colonel Heath and his regiment, at Buckhead Creek.

rds, and opened upon the barricades, and the enemy's artillery, in all, five (5) pieces, was forced to withdraw. At this moment, all being ready, the charge was sounded; the whole line moved forward in splendid order, and never halted for one moment until the barricades were gained and the enemy routed. A few hundred yards beyond, he made several counter charges, to save his dismounted men and check our rapid advance. At one time he had nearly succeeded, when the Eighth Ohio cavalry, (Colonel Heath,) who had been sent out on our right, charged the enemy in flank and rear, when he gave way at all points, and rapidly fell back to the town of Waynesboro. Here he was found occupying a second line of barricades, with artillery, as before, and his flanks so far extended, that it was useless to attempt to turn them. I therefore determined to break his centre. Colonel Murray, having the advance, was directed to make a disposition accordingly. The Eighth Indiana (Colonel Jones) was di

Both are educated gentlemen and accomplished cavalry soldiers; both merit promotion.

The Second Kentucky cavalry, Captain Foreman, although but a detachment, at Buckhead Creek and at
to position, the enemy did not see proper to make further advances, when we marched across the bridge. Here we found Colonel Heath, with his Fifth Ohio and two howitzers in splendid position, covering the bridge, ready to give the enemy a warm recethe fields on the right flank of General Baird's division of infantry. 2d. Continued march same as yesterday. Colonel T. T. Heath, with one battalion of his regiment, the Fifth Ohio volunteer cavalry, made a gallant little sabre-charge, successght while waving the flag as high as he could reach, and cheering on the men. The Fifth Ohio volunteer cavalry, Colonel T. T. Heath, followed the enemy to Brier Creek, on the Augusta road, and completely destroyed the large railroad bridge over tbe forwarded as early as the exigencies of the service will allow.
