ruth is, that Pickett's, Pettigrew's and Trimble's divisions were literally shot to pieces, and the small remnants, who broke the first Federal line, were too feeble to hold what they had gained. So the result of that charge only proved over again the axiom in war, that no single line of infantry without artillery can carry a line protected by rifle pits, knapsacks, and other cover, and a numerous artillery, if the assaulted party bravely avails itself of its advantages. It was so at Fredericksburg, reversing the parties, and will be so everywhere. Now a word about North Carolinians in this charge at Gettysburg, and of what I was an eye witness. On the morning of the 3rd I had been put in command, by order of General Lee, of two of the brigades of General Pender, who had been wounded. These were both of North Carolina troops, commanded by J. H. Lane and Alfred M. Scales. On taking command of these troops, entire strangers to me, and wishing as far as I could to inspire them

[We need scarcely repeat, what ought to be well understood, that we are not responsible for controversial papers, except to see that they are printed as sent by the authors.] Fredericksburg, Va., December 31st, 1880.

g of the 9th. At 6 o'clock A. M. we resumed our march, reached Spotsylvania courthouse about 12 M., and at once entrenched on the left of the road leading to Fredericksburg — our right resting on the road. Next day we moved to the left and connected with Johnson's brigade, and subsequently occupied Johnson's position, our right their pieces after a part of the battery had fallen into our hands. We also suffered from the fire of two other batteries--one on the right and rear, on the Fredericksburg road, and the other to our right and front. We were in great danger, too, from the fire of our own guns of Walker's artillery when we were fighting the assauiger and I had taken my command into the woods, but I am told by some of my officers that he was riding around on horseback in the edge of the woods, near the Fredericksburg road, abusing my brigade generally, and claiming for his own most, if not all, of the prisoners that were brought to the rear, when really his brigade was lea

he great victory gained. On Wednesday morning, May 28th, we were in motion for the Potomac, and having driven the enemy back from Charlestown to Harper's Ferry, were proceeding to invest this position, when the situation suddenly changed into one which would have unnerved a less determined commander, and have demoralized troops of less implicit confidence in their chief. McClellan had been gradually closing in on Richmond, and was only waiting for McDowell's column to swoop down from Fredericksburg in order to make his grand assault. But the movements of Jackson and the rout of Banks so alarmed the authorities at Washington that the following dispatch changed the whole situation: Washington, May 20, 1862. General Fremont has been ordered by telegraph to move from Franklin on Harrisonburg to relieve General Banks, and capture or destroy Jackson's and Ewell's force. You are instructed, laying aside for the present the movement on Richmond, to put twenty thousand men in mot

and that he had ascertained that the General had rented a house for his family. We marched the next day for Eastern Virginia, and the glorious field of First Fredericksburg. So completely did General Jackson conceal his plans from his staff and higher officers that it got to be a joke among them when one was green enough to atouisa Courthouse, where again we were deceived into thinking that we should move across by Spottsylvania Courthouse to meet McDowell's column coming down from Fredericksburg. At Frederick's Hall, Beaver Dam depot, and Hanover Junction, we still expected to head towards Fredericksburg, and it was really not until the afternoon of Fredericksburg, and it was really not until the afternoon of June 26, when we heard A. P. Hill's guns at Mechanicsville, that we appreciated the true nature of the move we had made, and the bloody work before us. It was on this march that Jackson met one of Hood's Texans straggling from his command, when the following coloquy ensued: Where are you going? I do not know, sir, prom

Naugatuck, made an attack on the unfinished batteries at Drewry's Bluff (Fort Darling), nine miles below Richmond, and received a repulse, which was of the utmost importance as breaking the prestige of the gunboats, blocking the way to Richmond, and restoring the confidence of the people. McClellan was, however, enveloping Richmond with a cordon of intrenchments (temporarily broken by the Confederate victory of Seven Pines), and was only waiting for McDowell's corps to swoop down from Fredericksburg and join him at Hanover Courthouse in order to make his contemplated assault on the doomed city. But Jackson's splen-did Valley campaign thwarted this plan. On May 24th McDowell received his order from President Lincoln to co-operate in the movement to capture or destroy Jackson and Ewell's forces, and at once replied to the Secretary of War: The President's order has been received — is in process of execution. This is a crushing blow to us. We have seen how Jackson eluded the snar
