his line of retreat. At some time during the day General Sedgwick brought up with the enemy in force, near Fairfield. A severe skirmish followed, but General Sedgwick refrained from bringing on a general engagement. During Sunday, between the hours of ten o'clock A. M. and six P. M., after the details for burying the dead had been made, all the corps were ordered to move in three columns, as nearly as possible upon the heels of the enemy. Headquarters, itself, was ordered to move to Creagerstown that evening, twenty-two miles distant. This, I think, was before the result of General Sedgwick's reconnoissance had become known. Subsequently all the orders for moving were countermanded, and the various corps halted from Sunday night until Tuesday morning. Headquarters remained at a point ten miles south-east of Gettysburgh until that time. In the mean time our cavalry were rapidly developing the line of the enemy's retreat. Instead of moving toward Chambersburgh, which is alm

s in the Shenandoah Valley, from the Opequan and Winchester to Fisher's Hill, early in October, 1866. See page 400, volume II. We left Gettysburg in a carriage, for Harper's Ferry, on the morning of the first, and followed the line of march of the corps of Howard and Sickles, when moving northward from Frederick, in the summer of 1863. See page 59. We passed through the picturesque region into which the road to Emmettsburg led us, with the South Mountain range on our right, dined at Creagerstown, twenty miles from Gettysburg, and rode through Frederick toward evening, stopping only long enough to make the sketch of Barbara Freitchie's house. See page 466, volume II. Then we passed along the magnificent Cumberland road over the lofty mountain range west of Frederick, into the delightful Middletown Valley. From the road, on the summit of that range, we had some of the most charming views to be found anywhere in our broad land. The valley was smiling with plenty, for the most b

sary, determines to execute a march parallel with the enemy. His army is made to follow the eastern slope of South Mountain in three columns, which concentrate at Middletown on the 7th. The one on the right, formed by the First, Second, and Sixth corps, skirts the foot of Catoctin Mountain by way of Emmettsburg, Mechanicstown, and Lewistown, crossing this chain at Hamburg; the centre column, composed of the Fifth and Eleventh corps, after reaching Emmettsburg by a by-road, moves through Creagerstown and Utica, and across the High Knob in the Catoctin Mountain; finally, the Second and Twelfth corps, with the artillery reserve, make a wide detour to the left by way of Taneytown, Middleburg, and Woodsboroa, in order to strike at Frederick the road from Washington to Hagerstown. The base for supplying the army, which should always be located along a railway line, is transferred from Westminster to Frederick. These supplies, therefore, can be promptly and easily obtained: the soldiers,
and the late forces of Gen. Milroy in his rear, disputing not only his passage to the fords at Williamsport, but also to the upper fords in the vicinity of Hancock.--He consequently was compelled to retreat on the roads through Smithsburg and Creagerstown, probably towards the South Mountain. He will there find to dispute his further progress to-day, Gen. French's force, a portion of Gen. Heintzelman's troops, and considerable reinforcements from Schenck's department.--Gen. Meade is also in cl another battle at or near Antietam. The Latest. The following was obtained Monday morning from the Headquarters in Baltimore: Advices from the army up to 2 P. M. on Sunday, July 5, state that Gen. Meade's headquarters would be at Creagerstown last night, and were to be in Frederick to day. Gen. Meade has telegraphed that Lee's army is retreating in wild confusion. Every available man in Baltimore and Washington is being hurried to Frederick to intercept Lee's flying and demor
