The Secretary of War, leaving the manufacture of cannon exclusively to private establishments, applied himself during this time to the task of increasing the number and importance of home factories for the production of small-arms; so that, whilst out of the 2481 field-pieces delivered to the armies 2250 had been purchased since the commencement of the war, the difference of 231 pieces representing the wretched material lying in the arsenals, we find that the national factory at Springfield has manufactured in the course of the first two years not less than 327,592 muskets, and 250,000 during the following year.

On the evening of the 21st, Buford has brought back the main body of his force to Linden Station. Pickett occupies Wapping Heights, the most important of the numerous hills which compose the western slope of the Blue Ridge, and whence he commands the egress of the defile. At last, at midnight, the bridge across the Shenand
