iles from Williamsburg, May 11, 1862. Hon. E. M. Stanton, Secretary of War, Fortress Monroe: Without waiting for further official reports which have not yet reached me, I wish to bear testimony to the splendid conduct of Hooker's and Kearny's divisions, under command of Gen. Heintzelman, in the battle of Williamsburg. Their bearing was worthy of veterans. Hooker's division for hours gallantly withstood the attack of greatly superior numbers, with very heavy loss. Kearny's arrived in time to restore the fortunes of the day, and came most gallantly into action. I shall probably have occasion to call attention to other commands, and do not wish to do injustice to them by mentioning them now. If I had had the full information I now have in regard to the troops above-named when I first telegraphed, they would have been specially mentioned and commended. I spoke only of what I knew at the time, and shall rejoice to do full justice to all engaged. G B. McClellan, Maj.-Gen. Commanding.

Every field officer and captain was killed. It carried into the fight 220 men. The brigade to which it was attached carried in 2,100 men, and came out with 300. While a salute was being fired in Champlain, N. Y, in rejoicing over the reported placing of McClellan in Halleck's place, the cannon bursted, killing two men.

s not sustained the army. If you do not do to now, the game is lost. If I save this army now, I tell you plainly, that I owe no thanks to you, or to any other person in Washington. You have done your best to sacrifice this army. G B. McClellan. To Hon E M Stanton. The army at Marrison's landing. On the 1st of July I received the following from the President: Washington, July 1, 1862--3.30 P. M. Major-Gen. George B. McClellan. It is impossible to rein force yoacked to-day I shall laugh at them. I have been anxious about my communication I had a long consultation about it with Flag Officer Goldsborough last night. He is confident he can keep the river open. He should have all the gunboats possible. Will see him again this morning. My men are in splendid spirits, and anxious to try it again. Alarm yourself as little as possible about me, and don't lose confidence in this army. G B. McClellan, Major Gen. To A. Lincoln, President.
