Keyes, Schenck, Sherman, and Richardson. Second Division, commanded by Hunter: an aggregate of 2,648 men, divided into two brigades, under Porter and Burnside. Third Division, commanded by Heintzelman: an aggregate of 9,777 men, divided into three brigades, under Franklin, Willcox, and Howard. Fourth Division, commanded by Runyon: an aggregate of 5,752 men; no brigade commanders. Fifth Division, commanded by miles: an aggregate of 6,207 men, divided into two brigades, under Blenker and Davies. Thus, the total of his command, not including four regiments left in the Alexandria and Arlington forts, was 34,320 men. From this number, however, Runyon's division may at once be deducted; it was left behind to guard his communications, its most advanced regiment being seven miles in rear of Centreville. McDowell's actual moving column may therefore be said to have consisted of 28,568 From this number it is entirely just to make yet another deduction. The period of e

But, arriving there, he found the conditions less favorable than he anticipated. It had been designed that Blenker's brigade should, during the day, throw up intrenchments; this was not done, because the necessary tools did not get for'clock Mc-Dowell began to distribute his orders to retire from Centreville; and a little after midnight Richardson's and Blenker's brigades marched away from that village in a deliberate and orderly retreat, maintaining their organization as a stead

a few days these were dispensed under the shade of trees in front of the cooper-shop of William M. Cooper, on Otsego Street, near Washington Avenue. Then this shop — generously offered for the purpose by Mr. Cooper--was used for refreshing the soldiers; and very soon whole regiments were fed there at tables supplied by the contributions of citizens of Philadelphia, and waited upon by the wives and daughters of those in the neighborhood. The first of the entire regiments so supplied was Colonel Blenker's (German Rifles), more than a thousand strong, who partook of a coffee breakfast there on the morning of the 27th of May.

Whilst the left was standing firmly, the vanquished right was moving from thet word to Miles to order a brigade to the Warrenton Road, at Cub Run, for the same purpose, and Blenker was sent. McDowell himself hastened to the left, where he found much confusion that might provsupplies. The caisson on the bridge was soon removed, and onward the excited mass pressed. Blenker's protecting brigade, lying across the road, opened and let them pass; and at twilight the fugihe pursuing force crossed Bull's Run that evening; and when, at dusk, these encountered some of Blenker's pickets in the gloom, they wheeled and hastened back to the Stone Bridge, when some of his br
