ement on Jones' front embracing the Funkstown and Cavetown roads. On the 12th firing began early, and the enemy having advanced on several roads on Hagerstown, our cavalry forces retired without serious resistance, and massed on the left of the main body, reaching with heavy outposts the Corochocheague on the National road. The infantry having already had time to entrench themselves, it was no longer desirable to defer the enemy's attack. The 13th was spent in reconnoitering on the left, Rodes' division occupying the extreme left of our infantry very near Hagerstown, a little north of the National road. Cavalry pickets were extended beyond the railroad leading to Chambersburg, and everything put in readness to resist the enemy's attack. The situation of our communication south of the Potomac, caused the Commandering General to desire more cavalry on that side, and accordingly Brigadier-General Jones' brigade (one of whose regiments--Twelfth Virginia cavalry--had been left in J

His whole course is a reproach and scandal to himself and his Government. He brands us Rebels, and treats us as if we were criminals of the lowest type. We should be proud of the noble name Rebel. It is borne by those dead heroes, Generals Albert Sydney Johntson, Stonewall Jackson, J. E. B. Stuart, Leonidas Polk, R. E. Rodes and T. R. R. Cobb, by Colonels R. T. Jones and B. B. Gayles, of my own beloved regiment, and by hosts of other gallant officers and no less brave privates, who have been transferred from the Confederate army to that glorious encampment where the white tents of the just are never struck, and where the laureled soldier bleeds and dies no more. The great Captain of us all has promoted these Rebels to higher rank. and given them more honorable and exalted commissions. George Washington, Fr
