of Kelley, he opened heavy guns upon the Confederates.
At the same time Dumont's infantry swept down to the bridge, where the Confederates had gathered to dispute their passage.
The latter were panic-stricken, and fled.
Kelley, approaching rapidly, struck the flank of the flying force, which was driven in wild confusion through the village and up the Beverly Road.
The two columns pursued them about 2 miles, when the fugitives, abandoning their baggage-train, escaped.
Colonel Kelley was severely wounded by a pistol-shot that passed through his right breast, and, fainting from loss of blood, fell into the arms of some of his soldiers.
For a long time his recovery was doubtful, but, under the watchful care of a devoted daughter, he finally recovered, and was commissioned a brigadier-general.
Colonel Dumont assumed the command of the combined columns.
Lacking transportation, the Indiana troops were recalled to Grafton by the chief-commander, T. A. Morris.
