ungrateful expression — the deserted position!--ever used by a commanding general toward a general officer, who had fought his division for four hours against superior numbers, even if overcome. But the check given to Lee by my division on the New-Market road, having, in the judgment of more than one Federal, and at least one confederate general, saved McClellan's army, it makes the stigma attempted to be cast on the division the more glaring and unpardonable. I have within a short time beenneral terms that the guns lost by field batteries belonging to your division were but a very small portion of the whole number lost at Gaines's Mills. Faithfully yours, William F. Barry. With respect to the guns lost at Nelson's farm or New-Market Cross-Roads, it is a fact well known that after Randall's battery was taken by the enemy and retaken by the reserves, (see Colonel Bollinger's report,) the guns could not be removed for want of horses, forty odd of those belonging to the batter

To avoid such a result, I caused White-House Bridge, which was upon his assumed line of march, othe bridge, before it was burnt, relieving the Sixth, who were bringing up the rear. After burning the bridge, a heavy picket was thrown out, and we retired to New-Market, and had heavy picket skirmishing all day.

The brigade remained in bivouac, at different places in the lower valley, until Saturday, the twenty-second November, when they moved, with the light division, from Jordan's Spring, on the Opequon, near Winchester. Marching up the Winchester and Staunton turnpike, we turned to the left at New Market, passed the Blue Ridge at Milam's Gap, then covered with snow, and on the twenty-seventh left the beautiful valley of Virginia. Passing by Madison and Orange, we reached the Massaponax Hill, near Fredericksburg, on Wednesday, the third of December, having made a march of one hundred and seventy-five miles in twelve days.
