We should have followed them up at the same time that we brought over the other two-fifths. In the morning, June 1. McClellan awaited an attack, which he says was made at 6 A. M., on the left of Sumner's corps, by Gen. Pickett, supported by Gen. Roger A. Pryor's brigade of Hager's division; to which French's brigade, on our side, stood opposed. The fight between them was noisy, but not very bloody: due caution and distance being maintained on either side. Mahone's brigade was brought up to the aid of Pryor, and Howard's to that of French ; and finally Meagher's Irish regiments went to the front, and a desultory conflict was maintained for some two or three hours, during which Gen. Howard lost his arm and had

Those batteries opening upon her, while she had no steam up, the captors could do no better than fire and destroy her.
