ved even a scratch from a bullet. I can account for this only upon the ground that our guns were some of the best in the world, while theirs were probably inferior arms. The whole thing was a brilliant affair, and was over in a half-hour after the action commenced on the mountain. Our force consisted of detachments of the Fourth, Fifth, Seventh, and Eighth Ohio, the Fourteenth Indiana, and the First Virginia, together with two companies of cavalry and Daum's battery, with a section of Howard's battery — in all, about two thousand five hundred men. Our information led us to expect about two thousand rebels, but the citizens and negroes agreed in stating their force at eight hundred. All went on well, until some crazy soldiers, encouraged by some of the officers, commenced burning houses; and I am sorry to say that several houses were burned along the road as they returned. The mill and Blue's house, which were used for soldiers' quarters, were burned, perhaps properly, as the

division now appeared upon the scene, but night brought cessation from further strife on this day. During the night, Kearney's, Couch's, and a portion of Casey's division were massed in the rifle-pits on the left, at Seven Pines, Hooker bivouacked in their rear. Sedgwick remained relatively in the same position as at dark; all his artillery that could be moved was brought up, and Richardson was placed on his left to connect with Kearney. French's brigade was placed along the railroad. Howard's brigade formed a second line, and the Irish brigade, a third. How at five o'clock on the morning of June 1, 1862, Confederate skirmishers and cavalry appeared in front of Richardson and were repulsed; how the Confederates, later, came on in full force, approaching rapidly in columns of attack, supported by infantry in line of battle on either side, appearing determined to crush, by this signal onslaught, the devoted troops that withstood them; how the Federal force sustained this shock
, the remaining divisions, by a series of marches and countermarches along the crests of the hills upon the north side, magnified their numbers to the enemy; and in the meanwhile the bulk of the First Corps departed from this vicinity, to join the force that confronted Lee. Through the afternoon of this day there was little change in our situation. We were lying in wait. Gen. Sedgwick was alone in command. In the meanwhile the bulk of the Federal army, consisting of the Eleventh Corps, Gen. Howard; a division of the Third, Sickles, which had arrived from our vicinity; the Twelfth, Gen. Slocum, comprising the right; and the Second, Gen. Couch, with the Fifth, Gen. Meade, on the left, had been engaged with the enemy, with varying fortune, at Chancellorsville, west of Fredericksburg, at the junction of the Gordonsville pike and the Orange, C. H., plank road. The Eleventh Corps had been routed by a determined attack of Jackson's force, but his advance had been checked by parts of th
A desperate and determined suicide. --A foreigner named Frank Howard, who seems to have had no relations in this country, perpetrated a most desperate suicide near Eaton, Ohio, on the 31st ultimo. He went to the barn, set it on fire, and after the fire had got a fair start, with the intention of removing every trace of himself, he cut his throat with his razor, and immediately threw himself into the fire. But loss of blood did not assuage the pain of burning. Human nature could not endure it; and with his clothes burned off and his flesh literally on fire, he jumped into a well, that drowning might take the place of burning. In this condition his dead body was found.
