t. Our men, after a temporary repose in front of Johnson's Division, successfully resisted every onset of the enemy, who repeatedly assaulted our lines with troops massed in, as some say, as many as ten columns deep. Our boys stood nobly to their work, piling the enemy's dead thickly before our breastworks. The lowest estimate of the enemy's loss in the battle yesterday is 20,000. These figures are corroborated by a Yankee Colonel, wounded, and in our hands. The Yankee General Stevenson was killed on the 10th. Our losses yesterday in killed and wounded are estimated at 2,000. Among the casualties on our side yesterday were the following: Gen. Gordon, slightly wounded; Colonel Baker, of the 16th Miss., killed; Lieut. Col. Felter, of the same regiment, killed; Col. Harding, of the 19th Miss., killed; Lieut. Col. Neimer, of the --Va., killed. There was continuous fighting for ten hours yesterday on one point, and so severe was the musketry fire that trees
my yesterday threw a force of infantry on our extreme left and engaged our cavalry, protecting that flank. Our cavalry (Chambliss's brigade) fought them a considerable time, when they were reinforced by infantry, driving the enemy back and capturing from him some seventy or eighty prisoners. Everything is quiet at 12 o'clock today. The bearing of most of our troops was superb on Thursday last; but Harris's, Mabone's, and Lane's, and Pegram's brigades I have heard specially commended, as also the whole of Rodes's and Field's divisions. Early and Anderson, as commanders of corps, have shown extraordinary abilities and fitness for their positions. The roads are deep in mud, thus enbancing the difficulties of transportation. Their need, however, he no apprehensions on the score of rations, forage or ammunition. The wounded are being sent off as rapidly as possible. Yankee Generals Robertson and Stevenson are certainly killed, and rumor says several others. X.
