forced them back. In this contest, Brigadier-General Adams marked with the scars of Shiloh, Penyville and Murfreesboro, was again wounded, and fell into the enemy's hands. General Bragg, impressed with the necessity of the occasion, detached Jackson's brigade of Cheatham's division, and ordered its commander to report to General Hill, but the support was too feeble to do material service. Hill had four brigades and a regiment in this attack against four divisions of the enemy, three of wa continuous and destructive fire was kept up. At 3:30 P. M. General Hill was ordered to attack Cheatham and Walker, being directed to move at the same time. Some delay was occasioned by the difficulty which General Hill met with in getting Jackson's brigade into position on Cleburne's right, so that it was after four when the movement begun. The batteries having opened the way the troops moved up with a will, Cleburne on the left, then Breckenridge and Walker, followed by Cheatham, the w

hmond and by steamer to Grove wharf, on the James. It was followed in a few days by the divisions of Longstreet and G. W. Smith, a part marching down the Peninsula, as the transportation was insufficient. D. H. Hill's advance reached Grove wharf on the 9th, and by the 20th the greater part of the three divisions had all arrived. The division of General Ewell was left near Gordonsville in observation of the line of the Rapidan, where it remained until the 30th of April, when it joined General Jackson in the Valley. On the arrival of General Johnston on the Peninsula, the Confederate forces now numbering fifty-three thousand, were positioned as follows: Gloucester Point, Yorktown, and the adjacent redoubts were held by D. H. Hill's division. Longstreet in the centre held the line of the Warwick, embracing the works at Wynn's mill, and dams No. 3 and No. 2.

About the 10th of May, however, news cahe marched to the top of Milem's gap, on the Graves road. Jackson, in the meantime, had swept up the Valley to New Market. While Ewell halted here, it was that Jackson is said to have requested fewer orders and more men. That at least was the camptraced his steps to Luray, where he formed a junction with Jackson on the 22d. At this time Brigadier-General Steuart, who hish, and no other aid was offered us.

The wounding of Stonewall Jackson or anything relating to it, is of such deep interest ublished what seems to us conclusive testimony that Jackson was wounded by the fire of his own men; but we givesitive testimony we have already published: Stonewall Jackson's death.

He says that Jackson was not shot by our own men. He was lying that nighes were sweeping with canister and minnie, when General Jackson crossed the road and was shot. His aid called ot so. Mr. Busick was that man. In his opinion that Jackson was not shot by his own men he is borne out by manycharge that swept the road just about the time that Jackson was killed.

than does Colonel Dodge, in his more elaborate and most excellent work on this battle. There can be no doubt that the overwhelming rout of the Eleventh corps by Jackson was largely due to Howard's taking none but the feeblest precautions against a flank attack, and that too in spite of the fact that he knew Jackson to be moving aJackson to be moving all day across his front, and had been warned by Hooker to be on his guard. Again, though Sedgwick showed tardiness and lack of enterprise in pushing up from Fredericksburg, General Doubleday sees so clearly the immensely greater blunder of Hooker in lying idle at Chancellorsville with (besides the troops that had been engaged) 37,unders of his own superiors. He could hardly be expected to describe in fitting terms the splendid strategy of Lee, the no less magnificent audacity and skill of Jackson, and the courage and determination of those 60,000 Confederates who throttled the finest army on the planet, (as Hooker with pardonable pride termed it) on the so

lbert Sidney Johnston, coming out from the cloud and mist of misapprehension and detraction, vindicated in his dying as the peer of the most illustrious in that grand galaxy of generals, statesmen, and heroes that have made the name and fame of the Southern Confederacy immortal. There was Louisiana's bishop-general, Polk, who, with a lofty soul, a clear conscience, and an abiding faith, and clad in the divine panoply, wore also with ease and grace the armor of human strife. There was Stonewall Jackson, flashing through the conflict the very genius of battle. And there, too, was Lee, first in war, first in peace, and still first in all our hearts. And above, and of right crowning that monumental shaft and looking down upon that heroic group, stood that figure leaning upon his gun, a mute, yet eloquent reminder of the men who followed, trusted and loved those leaders — leaders who, without such followers, without men so courageous, patriotic and devoted, had never been lifted to the
