ap some of the occasional disadvantages of a broken military chain. The force dispatched to Kelly's ford was composed of Gregg's and Duffie's cavalry, and a small brigade of infantry, perhaps fifteen hundred men, commanded by the gallant General David Russell, who was subsequently killed in the battle of the Opequan, in the Shenandoah Valley. The force to cross at Beverly ford was accompanied by General Pleasonton in person, and was composed of Buford's cavalry and a small brigade of infantryy ford. General Gregg left us to comply with this order, and it is only necessary to say further in regard to his column that it was not molested on its march to Rappahannock Station, and that it crossed the river there in safety, accompanied by Russell's Brigade of Infantry, which, as a precautionary measure to protect the lower fords, had hugged the river bank all day, and so far as I know had not exchanged shots with the enemy at all. General Pleasonton at the same time began the withdrawal

Beside the three fords without difficulty till late in the afternoon. During this last action fell the gallant commander of the First Division, the hero of Rappahannock Station, Gen. David Russell. There was now a period of seeming inaction, a lull, but only on the surface. Crook's corps was now sent to strike the Confederate left, which it did sied a general stampede of their army. Their loss in prisoners, including the wounded, was not less than 3,000. .Gen. E. O. Upton, commanding the Third Brigade of Russell's division of the Sixth Corps, was wounded. We had noted the progress of this officer from a first lieutenant of light artillery, which he was in 1861, in the ar

The first two, charging, seized the fort without firing a gun; then followed a hand-to-hand fight, and in ten minutes, before the other regiments of the brigade had been brought forward, the Maine and Wisconsin regiments had each lost nearly half of its members. Then the remainder of the brigade, with the survivors of the first two rege embankments, capturing hundreds of prisoners. Mention should be made of Upton's brigade of the same division, occupying the left of the Sixth Corps, which charged the Confederate rifle-pits on the right (facing north) of the fort carried by Russell's brigade; carried them at the point of the bayonet, capturing 1,600 prisoners, eight pieces of artillery, and four battle-flags. While these events transpired at Rappahannock Station, Gen. Birney, in command of the Third Corps, led the ad
