nth, and arrived at the Catoctin about half-past 12 P. M. Here the column halted until half-past 2 P. M., when Brig.-Gen. Hatch assumed the command in place of General King, who was assigned to other duty. The enemy's position was on the summit of South-Mountain. To avoid the fire of his batteries, the division was diverged frage wrested it from him. The first division to enter the field on our side was Cox's, of Reno's corps. Next came the Pennsylvania reserve corps, Ricketts's and King's divisions, under command of the gallant and brave Hooker. We had batteries stationed on both wings, but at no one time were there over ten or twelve pieces in pp shooters on the road branching off from the turnpike at the right; the second and third brigades of Ricketts's division between the branch road and the turnpike; King's division (commanded by Gen. Hatch) at the left of the turnpike, the right resting on the turnpike; Gen. Reno's force on the extreme left, about a mile and a half

Lebanon Junction, consisting of a part of the Sixtieth Indiana, (four hundred and twenty men,) including one company of the Twenty-eighth Kentucky, Lieutenant Conaway, which had been attached to it for duty; a part of the Sixty-eighth Indiana, Colonel King, (five hundred and seventy men,) and a battery of six pieces, Captain Conkle in command. On Tuesday, the sixteenth instant, about half-past 9 A. M. the advance of the enemy attacked our pickets on the south of our works, and from the directcers, when all did their duty well, especial praise seems almost out of place; yet some, of course, had better opportunities than others to display tact, coolness, and courage. Justice requires me to acknowledge my obligations to Lieutenant-Colonel Edward A. King, of the Nineteenth regulars, but now Colonel of the Sixty-eighth Indiana volunteers. He had position about midway of the south line of the works west of the railroad. Six companies of his regiment were held as a support in a hol

Stanton, Secretary of War: the cavalry expedition I directed Gen. King to send out, on the nineteenth, has returned. They left Fredericksburgh at seven P. M. on the nineteenth, and after a forced march during the night, made a descent at daylight in the morning upon the Virginia Central Railroad at Beaver Dam Creek, twenty-five miles west of Hanover Junction, and thirty-five miles from Richmond. They destroyed the railroad and telegraph-line for several miles, burned the depot, which contained forty thousand rounds of musket ammunition, one hundred barrels of flour, and much other valuable property, and brought in a captain in charge as a prisoner. The whole country was thrown into a great state of alarm. One private was wounded on our side. The cavalry marched eighty miles in thirty hours. The affair was most succe

Another party had crossed the railroad and gone down to Generals Ricketts's and King's supply trains and headquarter wagons. They gave a tremendous shout and charged down into the ravine, where King's wagoners were, upon the outside guarded by some Wisconsin troops, who drew up and fired into the rebel cavalry, killing two and taKing's wagoners were, upon the outside guarded by some Wisconsin troops, who drew up and fired into the rebel cavalry, killing two and taking two prisoners during a skirmish of nearly an hour. When the fire opened Major William Painter, division quartermaster, Capt. Frederick Gerker, brigade quartermaster, and Capt. D. B. Jones, commissary, ran out, mounted their horses, cheered the men, urging them to stand firm, and were taken prisoners. An hour before daylight a squadron of the brave Col. Allen's First Maine cavalry charged up the railroad, and the rebels at once departed thence for Warrenton. In the commencement of this br

Major King, Fifteenth United States infantry, had his battalion drawn up in open field, where he commanded the road; Major Carpenter, Nineteenth United States infantry, waof battery H, Fifth United States artillery. Just as our line was formed the enemy appeared, marching by the flank up the hill, in front of where I had found Major King's command. Lieut. Guenther, having got one of his pieces in position, opened with such effect as to check the progress of the enemy, and cause him to fall ba Major Drake at this time reported to me with the Forty-ninth Ohio volunteers, and was sent to a position on the right, and deflected at nearly a right angle to Major King, and was ordered to cover his front and right flank with skirmishers. I have no report from him, but believe there was no firing on his part of the line. Th
