e reader can easily judge of the severity of the contest. The proportion of officers wounded in the assault is quite unusual. I have briefly collected the following, which are but a small proportion of the total number: Colonel Dan.

As predicted in my last, Sherman has again outflanked Johnston, and as a naturthey became more bold, and windows and doors were gradually opened. Little children would run out and inquire if we were Yanks, and gaze on us with childish simplicity. All day long and far into the night, solid bodies of infantry marched, long the woods in great disorder. In half an hour after a superior force came down boldly, bent upon dislodging the impudent Yanks from their picket post, but at last accounts our troops were settling the dispute with leaden messengers, and the prospeced upon our men. The rebels instantly sprang up, and, holding up both hands, to show their innocence, exclaimed, Hold on, Yanks, it wasn't us, it was the Major; now get into your pits, as he says we must open fire.

een made, the repair train seemed on the spot, and the damage was repaired generally before I knew of the break. Bridges have been built with surprising rapidity, and the locomotive whistle was heard in our advanced camps almost before the echoes of the skirmish fire had ceased. Some of these bridges — those of the Oostanula, the Etowah, and Chattahoochee — are fine, substantial structures, and were built in inconceivably short time, almost out of material improvised on the spot. Colonel W. W. Wright, who has charge of the construction and repairs, is not only a most skilful, but a wonderfully ingenious, industrious, and zealous officer, and I can hardly do him justice. In like manner the officers charged with running the trains have succeeded to my entire satisfaction, and have worked in perfect harmony with the Quartermasters and Commissaries, bringing forward abundant supplies with such regularity that at no one time have we wanted for provisions, forage, ammunition, or stores

Among the officers who fell in the assault, and whose loss will be deeply deplored, because irreparable, I find the following: Colonel Rice, Fifty-seventh Ohio, mortally wounded; Colonel Parry, Fifty-fourth Ohio, severely wounded; Colonel Spooner, Eighty-third Indiana, severely wounded; Colonel Walcutt, slightly wounded; Lieutenant-Colonel Wright, One Hundred and Third Illinois, severely wounded; Colonel Barnhill, Fortieth Illinois, killed; Captain George, Fortieth Illinois, severely wounded; Captain Augustine, commanding Fifty-fifth Illinois, killed. One regiment of the corps emerged from this ordeal with but five field and line officers for duty. The Eighty-third Indiana lost two colorbearers while ascending the mountain. Both were shot by sharpshooters, and instantly killed. Among the mangled and lacerated suffer

ed the position. It was found to be of the greatest importance, as it overlooked the entire front occupied by the enemy. Columns of rebel troops were now seen to be extending to our left, planting artillery and making all dispositions necessary to attack. As he extended beyond my left, and as my troops were formed in a light line, with considerable intervals, a brigade from the Seventeenth corps under Colonel George E. Bryant, Twelfth Wisconsin volunteers, and two regiments under Colonel William B. Woods, Seventy-sixth Ohio volunteers, were sent to me, and posted where most needed, where they afterward performed good service. I now had sixteen regiments in the line and one in reserve. No point of it could by given up with: out endangering the entire line. At two P. M., the enemy commenced a vigorous fire of artillery all along his line, and was soon after seen advancing his infantry. We had good works, and the attack was met with the most perfect confidence.

t, Davis' division, accompanied by Baird's, which was intended to act as a support, left their position at the base of Big Kenesaw, and moved to the right of the Fourth corps, closing up closely on its right flank. There was, in fact, a general extension of the line to the right, every corps moving more or less troops in that direction, The Fifteenth corps furnished for the assault the brigades of General Giles Smith, General Lightburn, Colonel Walcutt, and detachments commanded by General C. R. Wood, from the three brigades of Osterhaus' division. Lightburn was selected, to carry the western slope of the hill; Giles Smith to charge it directly in front; Walcutt to reach the top through the narrow gorge that divides Little from Big Kenesaw, and General Wood to act as an immediate support. At eight o'clock, the hour designated for the assault, the brigades pushed boldly out from their trenches, formed in four lines, and in splendid order, and at a quick step, pushed boldly toward

Wood's and Stanley's divisions of the Fourth corps furnished supports on the flanks of the assaulting
berland, to relieve the brigade of Colonel Reilly, of General Cox's division of the Twenty-third Army Corps. This was promptly executed by the First brigade, General Willich's, of my division. This disposition brought the First brigade into line, immediately on the right of the Second brigade, and in like proximity to the stron to the assault, which enabled them to be withdrawn without the very heavy loss, which at one time seemed so imminent. A short time after this movement, Brigadier-General Willich, commanding First brigade, was seriously wounded by a rebel sharpshooter, and was borne from the field. He has never since rejoined the command. I was the campaign my thanks are specially due for zealous and intelligent performance of duty, and hearty co-operation throughout. I have already noted that Brigadier-General Willich, commanding First brigade, was seriously wounded at Resaca. The command of the brigade devolved on Colonel Wm. H.
