Oly across the open field, drove the Rebels back again into the woods. McCall's right, under Gen. Meade, had been likewise engaged with overwhelming numbers, by whom a final charge was made, just attery; which was carried at the point of the bayonet, though at a fearful cost. Gens. McCall and Meade instantly rallied their infantry for its recapture, and a hand-to-hand struggle of unsurpassed felief of McCall, impelling them to fall back in haste to the woods. In this closing struggle, Gen. Meade was severely wounded in the arm and hip; Gen. McCall, who had lost all his brigadiers, riding
wounded by a musket-ball, while, at the head of his division, he was watching through a glass the enemy's movements. Gen. Meade, with the Pennsylvania Reserves, had followed Hooker from Catoctin creek up the old Hagerstown road, so far as Mount Tat. Here Hooker — reconnoitering in the advance, as usual — halted and formed his lines; Ricketts's division on the left; Meade, with the Pennsylvania Reserves, in the center; while Doubleday, on the right, planting his guns on a hill, opened at onchalf musket-shot of each other. At daylight next morning Sept. 17. the battle was commenced in earnest: the left of Meade's and the right of Ricketts's line becoming engaged at nearly the same moment, the former with artillery, the latter with and was so nearly out of ammunition that it had to be temporarily withdrawn from the combat. By this time, Ricketts and Meade had pushed the Rebel line back across the corn-field and the road, into the woods beyond, and was following with eager, e
uite to 40,000. At 9 A. M., Reynolds advanced on the left; Meade's division, in front, being immediately assailed by Rebel bupport. Reynolds's corps being thus all in line of battle, Meade again gallantly advanced into the woods in his front; grappand been posted behind A. P. Hill, rushed to the front; and Meade's division, lacking prompt support, was overwhelmed and dripetuous, determined Rebel charge, losing many prisoners. Meade had already called for aid: and Gen. Gibbon had advanced ong Lawton's brigade, being here wounded and taken prisoner. Meade's division fell back, having lost 1,760 men this day out sot day, moving thence rapidly on Chancellorsville. The 5th (Meade's) corps followed; crossing the Rapidan at Ely's ford, loweged the left of the Rebel attacking force, then threatening Meade's front, and forced it back.

t Tennessee to Burnside without a struggle; Johnson had been drawn upon for a strong division under Walker on one hand — matters being now quiescent in and about Mississippi--while Lee, having satisfied himself that Richmond was in no danger from Meade, had dispatched Longstreet's heavy corps of veterans from the Rapidan; and every thing in the shape of militia, &c., that could be gleaned from Georgia, had been set to guarding bridges, depots, &c., so as to send every good soldier to the front.the roads leading from the east and south-east into Rossville, and thus to Chattanooga. Rosecrans had been deceived, and was taken at disadvantage, as many a good General had been before him. Instead of being warned, as he should have been, by Meade and Halleck, had their spies been worth a rush, that a heavy corps had been detached from Lee's army and, probably sent against him, he had very recently received advices of an opposite tenor. He had been favored, just before, with the followi

Our intermediate and subordinate rmolition at Winchester seemed to have filled the bitter cup held to our lips at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville — when tidings of the displacement of Hooker by Meade, just on the eve of a great, decisive battle, were received with a painful surprise by many sad, sinking hearts — when Grant was held at bay by Vicksburg and Banksly throughout the city on the night before the 4th, with evident intent to incite an insurrectionary movement on that day; but the tidings received by telegraph of Meade's success at Gettysburg, calling all the supporters of the War into the streets and inclining its opponents to solitude and seclusion, interfered with the executio

No further resistance being made, our army moved on to Goldsboroa, where it rested and was reclad, while Gen. Sherman, after a hasty visit to Gens. Terry and Schofield, took March 25. the first train of cars that ran to Morehead City, and thence a swift steamer to City Point; March 27. where he met in council the President, Gens. Grant, Meade, &c.; returning as hurriedly to his army at Goldsboroa, which he reached on the 30th. We may now narrate the events of the Winter in North Carolina, which signally contributed to the final overthrow of the Rebellion. Wilmington, N.
