Second regiment, in advance, and expired in a few moments, one of the many instances of the self-sacrificing spirits of our young men. Two revolving guns, one Napoleon gun, and many small arms and stores, were collected by Lieutenant Garnett, ordnance officer of the brigade, on the morning of the twenty-eighth, and sent to the ed, and reported, on the road from Grapevine Bridge. The only artillery under my command being Pelham's Stuart's horse artillery, the twelve-pounder Blakely and Napoleon were ordered forward to meet this bold effort to damage our left flank. The Blakely was disabled at the first fire — the enemy opening simultaneously eight piecbattles before Richmond, resulting in the complete triumph of the Confederate arms, and the repulse of the Grand Army of the Potomac, under the self-styled Young Napoleon, who had been forced to seek protection under cover of their gunboats, thirty miles down the James River. It affords me pleasure to bear record to the gallant
n the morning. We captured four hundred prisoners, and among them Brigadier-General Prince; five thousand three hundred and two small arms, one twelve-pounder Napoleon and its caisson, with two other caissons and a limber; three colors, by Winder's brigade, one being from the Fifth Connecticut, and another from the Twenty-eightfor positions for artillery.

Captai Brown, and the third company, with four light twelve-pound guns, (Napoleon,) under Captain M. B. Miller, Lieutenants McElroy, and Hero, in re (four three-inch rifles,) and Captain Stribling's battery, (three Napoleon guns and one three-inch rifle,) marched in the direction of the hian reported with a section of the Dixie artillery, composed of one Napoleon gun and one three-inch rifle. Major Garnett ordered me to place tington artillery, four three-inch rifle guns; Dixie artillery, one Napoleon gun and one three-inch rifle; Stribbling's battery, three NapoleonNapoleon guns and one three-inch rifle. This had scarcely been accomplished when the signal was given from your position to commence firing, which wat to your orders, I proceeded, with my battery of four smooth-bore Napoleon twelve-pounders, to a point on the right of and near the road to B
