Randolph's batteries of artillery, advanced upon Pohick Church by the telegraph road, followed, an hour later, by Gen. Jameson's brigade, and Company G, Lincoln Cavalry.

Richardson to divide his brigade at Potter's house, just beyond Piney Run, he to follow the telegraph road, and the other two regiments, with a battery and a company of cavalry, to cross to Accotink and reach Pohick Church by the Accotink and Pohick continuation of the Alexandria turnpike, so to time his march as to have both his columns reach the church at the same time. Gen. Johnson's brigade followed an hour later on the telegraph road as a reserve. Gen. Heintzelman himself left Headquarters at daylight, and overtook the advance where they were halted, a short distance on the north side of the church.

thdrew to the position, near Halltown, which the Federal pickets had occupied in the morning, and which he called Camp Evans. That night the Federals recrossed the Potomac and encamped on the first terrace of Maryland heights. Ashby reported his loss as 1 killed and 9 wounded, and that he had captured 10 prisoners, besides a large number of blankets, overcoats and a dozen muskets. In concluding, he reported: I cannot compliment my officers and men too highly for their gallant bearing during the whole fight, considering the bad arms with which they were supplied and their inexperience. On the 18th of October, Brig.-Gen. I. B. Richardson, reconnoitered to Pohick church and Accotink village, drove in the Confederate pickets, and on his return advanced his own pickets to Windsor's hill, some 5 miles southeast of Alexandria. On the 20th, Major Whipple made a reconnoissance from Dranesville; near Hunter's mill had a skirmish with Confederate pickets, also one near Thornton Station.

After a spirited combat of several hours the company was withdrawn, with the loss of two wounded. The enemy's loss was much greater. While in Virginia he was present at First Manassas, was engaged in a night skirmish in the Peninsula, and a cavalry skirmish near Accotink. In January, 1862, he was authorized to recruit a regiment, and of this command, known as the Thirtieth Alabama infantry, he was elected colonel, and commissioned in February, 1862. The regiment was assigned to Rains' and then to Barton's brigade, serving in the latter through the East Tennessee and Kentucky campaigns.

Both he and a river captain, who accompanied him, were sent to the Provost Marshal, at Alexandria. A Startling order from Gen. Hunter. The St. Louis Democrat, (Rep.,) publishes the following order from Gen. Hunter, and remarks: If the following, which has been handed to us, is correct, Gen. Hunter should at once be drummed out of the United States service.--It is a shocking and horrible order, nearly as wic

Heintzleman's dispatch gives the following particulars of this severe skirmish near the Occoquan river: Late last night Lieut. Col. Burke, with 50 men from the 37th regiment, which was then on outpost duty in front of the division, and a few mounted men, left the picket post at Accotink, and in obedience to orders, proceeded to the houses of Mrs. Lee and Potter, just beyond the village of Colchester. The two houses in question were located on each side of the Colchester road, and within 150 yards of the Occoquan. The detachment of our men reached the vicinity about midnight Lieut. Col.
