re movement contrary to the spirit at least of Lee's instructions. It made the great battle, not one of defense on the eastward slopes at Cashtown, but of offence at Gettysburg. Heth's advancing skirmish line found Buford's cavalry pickets at Willoughby's run, on the west side of McPherson's ridge, and forced them back with a vigor which was, to say the least, unfortunate for the Confederates. The sound of battle went west to call Ewell forward along the road from Carlisle and brought Generalnced corps of the Army of the Potomac. At 10 A. M., Reynolds found the First Corps of the Federal army on Seminary ridge, a mile west of Gettysburg. Advancing with a division to the support of Buford, Reynolds drove Archer's brigade back over Willoughby's run, capturing General Archer, and falling himself slain on the field. At noon, Hill's divisions, Heth and Pender, held the first corps at bay, and the Eleventh Corps arrived under General Howard, who took command of the Federal lines. Leav

an enfilading artillery fire. It was such an ordeal that faced my regiment after being placed in position (about 11 A. M. July 1st, 1863), at the apex of a right-angle in our line of battle. About two-thirds of the regiment lay along the McPherson lane, facing west, and the rest were aligned along the south side of the Chambersburg pike, facing north. A gentle rise in the surface immediately west of us, known as McPherson's ridge, screened us from view from the next elevation, beyond Willoughby's run, where were stationed the confederate batteries of Pegram and McIntosh; the former of twenty guns and the latter of fourteen. The enemy's infantry, which had been heavily engaged with Meredith's and Cutler's brigades a great part of the forenoon, were now making new dispositions and awaiting reenforce-ments. In the meantime the infantry fire was confined to the skirmish lines, while the artillery fire passed over our heads. Close on to I P. M. the scene changed. The enemy's
re conclusive is the fact that in 1637 a large tract of land lying between the Winter Hill road, now Broadway, and Cambridge was divided into rights of pasturage, and after this the main was called the common. But the destruction of the forest was so great that it was early necessary to take steps to prevent the needless waste of trees, and in 1636 it was voted in town meeting that a fine of 5 shillings be imposed for every tree felled and not cut up. But several years later, when one Willoughby was building a ship, the town, to encourage the enterprise, gave him liberty to take timber from the common, without being obliged to cut up the tops of the trees. And so, the primeval forest was cut away, a second growth succeeding, to fall in its turn before the woodman's axe, and the cleared land slowly increased in extent until the Revolution. During the siege of Boston, when the colonial troops were encamped for nine months on the Somerville hills, the demand for firewood was grea

Capt., Cannon, arrived yesterday morning and brought some news of interest. Preparations are said to be making for an attack on Yorktown, by way of Great Bethel, as soon as a regiment of cavalry can be obtained. It is said at Fortress Monroe that a powerful battery has been constructed on the opposite side from the Fortress, between Howell's and Willoughby's Points, and distance three miles, from which it is expected rifled cannon will be used against the Fortress, while that at Willoughby's Point will operate against the Rip Raps. Information has been received at the Fortress that the steamer Yorktown, formerly of the line between Richmond and New York, will upon attempt to run the blockade. She is said to have a powerful armament of 40-pound guns, while has entire bull is covered with H. railroad iron, to metal the shots from the ships of war and Fortress Monroe.
