bout six times during the three hours I was talking with him. Finally, however, he left, and I alternately slept and froze until seven o'clock. This morning I sent Bates on an expedition and raked up a couple of horse-blankets, by the aid of which I hope hereafter to be reasonably comfortable. I hope to get the trains up to-morrow and make a final start during the day. We have a good many to deal with. I ordered the Guthrie Grays to Philippi this P. M. to resist a stampede attack that Gen. Morris feared. Buckhannon, July 5, 1861. . . . Yesterday was a very busy day with me, reviewing troops all the morning and giving orders all day and pretty much all night. . . . I realize now the dreadful responsibility on me — the lives of my men, the reputation of the country, and the success of our cause. The enemy are in front, and I shall probably move forward to-morrow, but not come in contact with them until about the next day. I shall feel my way and be very cautious, for I recog
as Gen. Sedgwick, and immediately in his rear. Passing over the stream in three columns, the division marched about a mile from the ford, then, facing to the left, moved in three lines towards the enemy: Gen. Max Weber's brigade in front, Col. Dwight Morris's brigade of raw troops-undrilled, and moving for the first time under fire — in the second, and Gen. Kimball's brigade in the third. The division was first assailed by a fire of artillery, but steadily advanced, driving in the enemy's ski., having refilled their cartridge-boxes, was again ordered forward, and took position in the centre of the line. The division now occupied one line in close proximity to the enemy, who had taken up a position in the rear of Piper's house. Col. Dwight Morris, with the 14th Conn. and a detachment of the 108th N. Y., of Gen. French's division, was sent by Gen. French to the support of Gen. Richardson's division. This command was now placed in an interval in the line between Gen. Caldwell's and t

to operate against Charleston. General Hunter resolved to avail himself of these advantages to attempt against the forts which commanded the entrances to Charleston the manoeuvre which had proved so successful in the attack upon Pulaski. The Bay of Charleston is separated from Stono River at the south by a group of islands, which strongly resemble those of Tybee, being, like the latter, encircled by canals, which are the means of communication between the two bays. The most important are Morris and Folly, bordered by the sea, which will play a prominent part in the history of the siege of Charleston, and back of these, surrounded by a large belt of marshes, James Island, covered with villages and cultivated fields. The Federals hoped that, by taking possession of this island and the canals which enclose it, they would be able to penetrate into the bay, which serves as a harbor to the cradle of secession, without having to pass under the fire of Sumter, Moultrie and the forts that

e field of battle at the same time as Sedgwick, they would have turned his first success into a decisive victory; now they could only prevent his defeat. French was marching in three columns, the left formed by Max Weber's brigade, the centre by Morris' new recruits, the right by Kimball's brigade. Having reached the cross-road leading to Dunker Church, near which Green had just been repulsed, he made each of them wheel to the left in line of battle; and thus formed in three lines, he passed rhe extremity of the wood to the east to attack the right of McLaws. The first line advanced boldly; but while it was gaining ground the second was exposed to an enfilading fire, proceeding from the wood, which threw the inexperienced soldiers of Morris into confusion. Kimball proceeded past them and deployed on Weber's left. Richardson arrived immediately after French, and extended his line still more to the left with Meagher's Irish brigade, supported at a short distance by those of Caldwell
