The following is the report of Gen. Kearney to Gov. Curtin: headquarters Third division, Heintzees, the brigade, although jaded and wearied, moved forward as rapidly as the roads would permit. On nearing the front, by order of Gen. Heintzelman, through Captain McKeever, I detached the Third and Fourth Maine regiments, and proceeded with the Thirty-eighth and Fortieth New-York regiments to the front. When I reached the fron

Report of General Hooker. headquarters Hooker's division, Third army corps, camp near Harrison's Landing, James Riyer, Va., July 15, 1862. Captain C. McKeever, Assistant Adjutant-General Third Army Corps: In obedience to instructions, my command was withdrawn from its advanced position before Richmond about sunrise, on the twenty-ninth ultimo. We retired, in condition to give or receive battle, as occasion might require, to a new line a mile or more in the rear, where it was halted and drawn up to check any advance of the enemy, either by the Williamsburgh road or railroad. The enemy followed up our movements closely, taking possession of our camps as soon as they were abandoned, but evincing no disposition to come to close quarters. We remained in our new position until about three o'clock P. M., with no other event than a feeble attack on Sumner's advance

Report of General Hooker. headquarters Hooker's division, Third army corps, camp near Harrison's Landing, James River, Va., July 18, 1862. Captain C. McKeever, Assistant Adjutant-General, Third Army Corps: After withdrawing from Glendale, our march was continued to the Malvern Hills, without interruption, and about ten o'clock A. M. my division was established in line of battle for the defence of our new position. Under a heavy fire of the enemy's artillery, Grover's brigade was strongly posted on the right, Carr's on the left, and well sheltered; subsequently, Sickles's brigade, held in reserve, was posted in rear of my right, protected from the enemy's shots, and well in hand to reinforce any part of my line. Osborne's and Bram's batteries occupied higher ground, where they could reply to the enemy's artillery, or open h
han eleven thousand men, after a struggle of three hours and a half, checked the enemy's heavy masses. Gen. Nagle, who is highly commended for his gallantry and activity, has not sent in his regimental reports. It is but just that these should be forwarded to the War Department, as an evidence of the good conduct of the officers and men of the regiments mentioned by their regimental commanders. When I started for the field, I have to regret I was obliged to leave at my headquarters Captain McKeever, Chief of my Staff, to attend to the forwarding of orders, etc. Shortly after I left, he received an order from the Commanding General to remain and keep him informed by telegraph of the progress of the battle; and thus I was deprived of his services in the battle. His services and those of Capt. Moses, Assistant Adjutant-General, were very arduous in attending to the wounded, who were all sent to my headquarters for transportation to the White House. When I arrived on the field, I me
