p the rear. Subsequently several portions of the brigade, under Colonel Iverson, Captain Garnett, and others, were rallied and brought into action, rendering useful service.

seen like a long, black serpent, moving slowly to the rear. Pegram, attacking one of its divisions, was checked; Wharton's Division was also thrown into some confusion, but Colonel Carter, chief of artillery, concentrated upon it twenty guns, and soon it was in full retreat, Ramseur and Pegram advancing to the position from which it was driven. Some sixteen hundred prisoners had now been taken, and Early was anxious to press forward. Zzzshould we press forward? Early now sent Lieutenant Mann Page, of his staff, with orders for Gordon and Kershaw to attack, but he soon returned and informed Early that Kershaw stated his division was scattered and not in condition to do so, and a cavalry force was pressing on his front. He also stated that Gordon's Division was reforming in the rear of Kershaw, and that it was too scattered to attack. The enemy had now formed their line across the Valley 'pike two miles north of Middletown. A heavy force of cavalry was pressing upon our righ

up in line of battle, and as Gen. Jackson rode past, the cheers of the men were most enthusiastic. There was some firing early in the morning, but no engagement took place, the enemy declining to reply, although in sight. Major Holladay, of the 1st brigade, lost an arm on Saturday evening, and Lieut. Alexander, of the Irish battalion, was wounded. But few of the casualties in the battle have yet been reported. Maj. John Seddon's hat was shot off, and his horse killed under him. Adjutant Mann Page, of the 21st regiment, was taken prisoner, but his captor was killed while threatening to "blow the d — d rebel's brains out," and the Adjutant shortly found himself among his friends, who were in pursuit of the retreating enemy. It is believed that the few Confederates captured by the Yankees were all retaken by our advancing columns later in the fight. We have been able to gather but little information in respect to the part borne by Bwell's division, on the right, save that th

Yancey, of Rockingham, severely wounded in the thigh, and Captain R. N. Wilson, of Pegram's staff, wounded. General Early and one of his aids, Lieutenant-Colonel Mann Page, had their horses shot under them. It should be remembered that the difficulties which General Early contended with in the Valley were of no ordinary character. He was opposed by a greatly superior force, numerically; and he suffered for the want of cavalry strong enough to cope with the three large and well disciplined divisions of Torbert, numbering, perhaps, 8,000 men. It is too late now, however, to suggest remedies, but not too late to prevent censure from falling upon
