ill night, breaking from time to time as he was forced nearer our centre at the turnpike. Gibbon's brigade had been called from Hooker's corps, and was ordered up the mountain by the direct route as the corps engaged in its fight farther off on the right. A spur of the mountain trends towards the east, opening a valley between it and the mountain. Through this valley and over the rising ground Meade's division advanced and made successful attack as he encountered the Confederates. Cooper's battery marched, and assisted in the several attacks as they were pushed up the mountain slope. The ground was very rough, and the Confederates worked hard to make it too rough, but the divisions, with their strong lines of skirmishers, made progress. Rodes made an effort to turn the right of the advancing divisions, but Hooker put out a brigade from Hatch's division, which pushed off the feeble effort, and Rodes lost his first position. It was near night when the brigades under Gene

the advance of the Confederate infantry got in so close along the railroad cut that General Reynolds, in efforts to extricate his right, was shot, when the right, still under severe pressure, was forced to retire towards Seminary Ridge. Hall's battery, severely crippled, succeeded in getting away as the right retired. Doubleday's other divisions came up about the moment General Reynolds was killed. The Second (Robinson's) and Third (Rowley's) Divisions deployed on the right and left. Cooper's battery of four three-inch guns followed the left division. At the same time Hill reinforced by his division under Pender, Thomas's brigade on his left, Lane, Scales, and Perrin to the right. These restored the Confederate right, overlapping the Federal left; at the same time Thomas's brigade made successful battle on the left, pushing off Wadsworth's right and Hall's battery, when the two brigades of the Second Division (Robinson's) were sent to their support, but were, in turn, forced

ich was enclosed his pretended resignation from the Confederate army. The President refused to entertain the charges, and ordered the officer released from arrest and restored to his command. Of the paper that was improperly disposed of, General Cooper, adjutant and inspector-general of the army, reported,--The resignation within referred to never came to the office. It appears from inquiry at the War Department that it was presented by a friend of General Law, unofficially, to the Secreta should be declared by a court-martial. There have been instances of officers obtaining indulgences on not true grounds, which I think discreditable and prejudicial to military discipline, and should be stopped. Ibid. The indorsement of General Cooper shows that the paper was fraudulently handled. The letter of General Lee shows the offence a high crime and misdemeanor. General Lee wrote to inform me that the authorities at Richmond had ordered General Law to be restored to duty with

uses. Here I will give the account of the loss of whole batteries: General Truman Seymour reports, p. 402, of Captain Easton, This gallant gentleman fell and his battery was lost with him. Captain Mark Kerns was wounded, but loaded and fired the last shots himself, and brought four of the guns off the field. Of another battery he reports, No efforts could now repel the rush of a successful foe, under whose fire rider and horse went down, and guns lay immovable on the field. Captain J. H. Cooper, Battery B, 1st Pennsylvania Artillery, reports, p. 410: The remaining infantry falling back, we were compelled to retire from our guns. The charge being too sudden and overpowering, it was impossible to remove them, many of the horses being killed by the enemy's fire. Was General Porter prevented from bringing off all these guns by the cavalry charge? General Porter says, p. 322: Just preceding this break (in Morell's line) I saw cavalry, which I recognized as ours, r
