To bless the turf that wraps their clay, And Freedom shall awhile repair To dwell a weeping hermit there. Maj. McClellan took his seat amid loud applause, was warmly congratulated by a number of comrades, and on motion of Attorney-General Field, the thanks of the Association were tendered the orator, and a copy of his address solicited for publication. The old officers of the Association were unanimously elected, except that Colonel Thomas H. Carter was made vice-president and Colonel W. H. Palmer added to the executive committee. It was pleasant to see present, as tearful listeners, the widow of Gen. Stuart, (now the accomplished principal of the Virginia Female Institute, Staunton, Va.,) his son, his daughter, and his brother, (W. A. Stuart, Esq., of Saltville,) and to witness the enthusiasm with which former members of Stuart's staff, and others of the old cavalry corps would greet Maj. McClellan's appreciative tribute to their loved and honored chieftain whose feather th

e halted, and remained standing in the road for some time. Gen. A. P. Hill then ordered me to form across the road--two regiments to the right, two to the left, and one thrown forward as a strong line of skirmishers — for the purpose of making a night attack; but soon after the order was given, our artillery opened and the enemy replied. I at once ordered my men to lie down, as I was unwilling to attempt to manoeuvre them in the dark, and in such a woods, under such a deadly fire. Col. William H. Palmer, of this city, gallantly crossed the road to know why I did not move my command. I requested him to tell General Hill that if he wished me to do so successfully he must order his artillery to cease firing. The order was given, and, as I had anticipated, the enemy also ceased firing. I now formed my brigade as I had been ordered, putting the Seventh and Thirty-Seventh on the right of the road, and the Eighteenth and Twenty-eighth on the left, the right of the Eighteenth resting on

taff was killed, and two others wounded, Major Gettings but slightly. The division was reformed in accordance with orders from General Trimble, by General Lane, just in rear of the artillery and upon the same ground where it had rested before making the attack, and in this position remained until the army fell back on the night of the 4th of July. The reports of the brigade commanders are herewith enclosed, to which your attention is called for further particulars and for notices of individual gallantry. The list of casualties, which was very large, has already been forwarded by Surgeon P. A. Holt, the Medical Director of the division. Sincerely regretting the loss the division sustained in its two commanders, which has devolved upon me the necessity of writing this report, I am, Major, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, Jos. A. Englehard, Major and Assistant Adjutant-General Light Division. To Major W. H. Palmer, Assistant Adjutant-General Third Army Corps.
