They finally returned to the charge at the end of April, while one detachment tried in vain, on the 28th, to force the defile of Greenland Gap in the Alleghanies. Jones, passing through Beverly and Philippi at the head of a large brigade of cavalry, levied contributions upon the whole flat country and forced his way a on the Virginia side of the Ohio, the whole valley of Monongahela, where McClellan made his debut, and the sources of the upper tributaries of the Potomac in the Alleghanies; General Kelley occupies this last region between Romney and Moorefield.

The great plateau of the Cumberland, forming the ├ęchelon farthest west of the Alleghanies, extends southward as far as the thirty-fourth degree of latitude; the Tennessee, after traversing from east to westm, very rough, affording him everywhere the means for delaying Forrest's march. South of Chattanooga the chain of the Alleghanies soon loses itself in a range of hills which appear to have been thrown into the centre of the large and fertile plai Smith, who is exercising supreme command in this immense district, similar to that which Johnston exercised between the Alleghanies and the Mississippi, has organized two expeditions, to which the sudden attack on Milliken's Bend on the 7th of June

masking the movements of the infantry was sufficient occupation for him, preventing a thought of undertaking a raid on his own account. Longstreet remained at Culpeper with his corps, to form the centre of the long column which was to extend from Fredericksburg to within sight of the Maryland mountains; and on the morning of the 10th, Ewell resumed his line of march. Two brigades of cavalry were ordered to clear his way. Imboden's brigade, which was already among the upper valleys of the Alleghanies above Romney, was instructed to cover his left and destroy the track of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, in order to prevent Milroy from receiving reinforcements from the West. Jenkins' brigade preceded the infantry into the valley of the Shenandoah, which it had left only a few days before. These two brigades, which had but recently been really attached to the Army of Northern Virginia, Jones' brigade is reported as attached in the returns of this army for the month of May. Imbod

tive, and the retrograde movement undertaken by the former was no encouragement to the latter to attempt a direct attack with his reduced forces. This attack had not been contemplated in the instructions of the general-in-chief. Porter was entirely ignorant of what was taking place on his right. Finally, his scouts having taken some prisoners, he learned from them that he had before him a portion of Longstreet's corps, which the general staff still believed to be among the defiles of the Alleghanies. Consequently, Porter, while McDowell was pursuing his way with King through a long and sinuous road, confined himself to watching the enemy in front of him. Longstreet, on his part, as soon as he was informed by Robertson of the appearance of a large Federal column on his right wing, hastened to reinforce it, and at half-past 4 o'clock withdrew Wilcox's division from the place it occupied on his left, to send it to take a position between Kemper and Jones. Porter, therefore, by his m
