charged by cavalry, and more than once abandoned by their infantry supports, both officers and enlisted men manfully stood by their guns with a courage and devotion worthy of the highest commendation. Where all did so well, it would be invidious to make distinction, and I therefore simply give the names of all the officers engaged viz.: Major Hunt; Captains Carlisle, Ayres, Griffin, Tidball, and Arnold; Lieutenants Platt, Ransom, Thompson, Webb, Barriga, Green, Edwards, Dresser, Wilson, Throckmorton, Cushing, Harris, Butler, Fuller, Lyford, Will, Benjamin, Babbitt, Haines, Ames, Hasbrouck, Kensel, Harrison, Reed, Barlow, Noyes, Kirby, Elderkin, Ramsay, and Craig.

terprising men of California. I suspect they can account for the fact that, in a very short time, Fremont fell from his high estate in Missouri, by reason of frauds, or supposed frauds, in the administration of the affairs of his command. I left St. Louis that afternoon and reached Louisville the next morning. I found General Anderson quartered at the Louisville Hotel, and he had taken a dwelling house on------Street as an office. Captain O. D. Greene was his adjutant-general, Lieutenant Throckmorton his aide, and Captain Prime, of the Engineer Corps, was on duty with him. General George H. Thomas had been dispatched to camp Dick Robinson, to relieve Nelson. The city was full of all sorts of rumors. The Legislature, moved by considerations purely of a political nature, had taken the step, whatever it was, that amounted to an adherence to the Union, instead of joining the already-seceded States. This was universally known to be the signal for action. For it we were utterly
e twenty-eighth and twenty-ninth, herewith.) Next morning, (thirtieth,) it became evident that the enemy had materially retired his left wing. My cavalry reconnoitred to the front, gaining, at the next house, an important point of observation. A large walnut tree being used as an observatory, the enemy was discovered gradually massing his troops in three lines opposite Jackson, and his left wing seemed to have entirely shifted. The commanding General was informed of these changes. Captain Throckmorton, Sixth Virginia cavalry, commanding sharpshooters, took position along a stone fence, and stoutly defended our observation against the attacks of the enemy's dismounted cavalry. About three P. M., the enemy having disclosed his movement on Jackson, our right wing advanced to the attack. I directed Robertson's brigade and Rosser's regiment to push forward on the extreme right, and, at the same time, all the batteries that I could get hold of were advanced at a gallop, to take posit

of the treasurer, Brother Burke, I remained in Augusta to aid in shipping a large supply of paper for the publications of the association, and returned to Mayfield, where I continued to supply with papers the large number of Confederate soldiers who were returning from furlough to their commands, and the militia of Georgia going on furlough to their homes. We are under special obligations to Major W. F. Ayer, Chief Quartermaster, Major Jno. S. Bransford, Chief of Transportation, and Major Throckmorton, of the Transportation Department, all of the Army of Tennessee, for the invaluable services they rendered the association in securing an early shipment of the paper, and saving several thousand dollars for the benefit of the soldiers and the association. Our thanks are also due Mr. Jones and Honeycut for assistance given me. I am glad to report that the trains are thronged daily with the soldiers who were furloughed home, now returning to our army in South Carolina. Receipts for

Brien; my aid, Chiswell Dabney, Jr., Lieuts. Throckmorton, and Johnson, of the Fairfax cavalry; Lieut. Jackson, aid to Gen. Jones, Volunteers for the occasion, for valuable services on the field. Lieut. Throckmorton accompanied Capt. Pitzer, and was conspicuously useful during the day; and LieutLieut. Throckmorton accompanied Capt. Pitzer, and was conspicuously useful during the day; and Lieut. Johnson was of great service to me. Corporal Henry Hagan, of First Virginia cavalry, was of great service in showing the First Kentucky regiment its position in line, and proved himself on this, as on every other occasion, worthy of a commission. Raymond Burke, chief bugler Steele; privates Lewis, Barnes, Harris, Barton, Landsireet, Routh, Brigman, Thompson, and Carroll, of my escort, deserve my thanks for their promptness and accuracy in conveying orders and instructions. had we effect
, wounded, and prisoners, the 1st Yankee Maryland regiment was actually demolished, not more than fifteen escaping. After the rout was complete, and most of the prisoners captured, others came up and assisted in taking prisoners. Owing to the difficulty in crossing the bridge at Front Royal, which had been set on fire by the enemy, it was difficult for the cavalry to cross the river, which accounts for so small a portion of the cavalry being in the fight. There were but four companies in the charge, which were--Capt. Dulany's company, Capt. Grimsley's, Capt. Flournoy's, and the lamented Capt. George Baxter's. Three other companies of the 6th came up in time to follow in the pursuit, viz: Capt. Richards's company. Capt. Throckmorton's, and Capt. Row's. The rout of the enemy was complete, and this charge of the 6th is considered one of the best cavalry charges that has been made during the present war, and it is due the 6th that it should have the credit of its own deeds.
