nent disaster. Indeed, it has been asserted by eye-witnesses that its retreat was not made without disorder, and that if the Federals had pressed with a sufficient force, even without artillery, the three brigades of Huger's corps, which, under Pickett, Pryor and Mahone, were defending every inch of ground, they might probably have been able to enter Richmond with then. The combat of the 1st of June, in which but a few thousand men were engaged on either side, had notwithstanding the proportions of a great battle. On the left it was marked by a brilliant charge of Sickles' brigade along the railway track; on the right by a sharp encounter between an Irish brigade in the Federal service, commanded by General Meagher, and Pickett's troops. Before noon the Federal outposts took possession without a blow of the works whose capture had cost so dear to the Confederate army, and suffered it to disappear among the dense woods without molestation. This brilliant army, which had gone o

e, supported by the two field-pieces that were still left them. They were also assisted by the powerful artillery of the gun-boats. At the opening of the musketry-fire, it is true, an unexplained accident set fire to the powder-magazine of the Pickett, which exploded, killing and wounding about twenty persons. But the Louisiana, throwing her heavy shells into the houses where the assailants had taken refuge in their turn, compelled them to beat a speedy retreat. The attempt had failed, but the capture of four guns and the destruction of the Pickett sufficiently indemnified the Confederates for the losses they had sustained. The battle of Antietam had restored confidence to the Federals; the garrisons of all the isolated posts were ordered to be doubly active, so as to occupy the enemy and prevent him from reinforcing Lee's army.
