was ordered after a rest to renew the attack. The question recurs, why then, was the battle renewed? The discussion of the question has provoked some criticism upon the conduct of the corps commander and the events of the first day. Captain Cecil Battine, of the 15th Hussars in the English army, who has written a most graphic and intelligent account of the campaign, thinks Hill did not display his usual vim during the first day, and that his actions were characterized by a timidity unusuaressed, opinions may differ.
