kins's Sharp-Shooters, and the Thirty-second and Forty-fifth regiment, I commanded--By company into line, and deployed the column on the Tenth company, continuing the movement to the front with all possible rapidity. At the same time I sent Lieutenant Hall, my aid-de-camp, to bring up the next regiment in the same manner, and I went with the first to their important work, and nobly did they perform it. Our spirited fire, the sight of reinforcements, and a terrific Rebel yell, combined to strik which was done in good order. The whole command behaved with great gallantry, and inflicted a heavy loss upon the enemy. My loss was slight, but four killed and thirty-five wounded. My staff officers present, Captain J. P. Walker and Lieutenant A. P. Hall, rendered me great assistance in this expeditious movement, by their promptness and great gallantry. I was deprived of the valuable services of Captain O. S. Palmer, until near the close of the engagement, he being with the Sixteenth Ala

will not here relate. The next day we were marched to Fairfax Station, and held the advance at that point, picketing on the outposts, and having not a few stirring skirmishes with the enemy. I might fill pages with the details of this outpost service; but I recall only a few incidents. In the latter part of July, or the first of August, Stuart, with five companies of the First Maryland and five of the Thirteenth Virginia, and several companies of cavalry, captured Mason's, Munson's and Hall's hills, from which we could plainly see the dome of the Capitol at Washington. The day we captured Munson's hill, Major Terrill was sent with a detachment of the Thirteenth on a scout, during which we drove in the enemy's pickets, ate their smoking dinner, and pursued them back until they rallied on their reserve, and our gallant Major thought it would not be prudent to advance further. Accordingly we were moving back to our reserve when we met Stuart. What is the matter? I hope you are

thrown forward, advanced upon the enemy at Jericho Ford in the following order, from right to left: Eighteenth, Thirty-seventh, Thirty-third, and Twenty-eighth. We soon drove in the enemy's skirmishers and, after advancing about four hundred yards into the woods in our front, we became actively engaged with their main line of battle, posted on a commanding ridge, when a portion of the troops on our left gave way. I at once apprised General Wilcox of the fact through my Adjutant-General, Captain Hall. The General replied that it was not so, and ordered me to push on. We were then in advance of McGowan's brigade. Soon after this order was received the Thirty-seventh North Carolina regiment, of my own command, broke and ran back. I then ordered the other three regiments back to the edge of the woods, where the Thirty-seventh was being rallied, as my line was broken, and there was no one on my left. Having reformed the line, in obedience to orders from General Wilcox, I again advance
the course of the President of the United States in bringing on the war, and his opinion that the South never could be subjugated. It was hoped that this fixed his position, and that he was Virginian enough at least to take no part against us. Mr. Stearns is a Northern man, but has resided here for very many years. He was a Union man, but, the war being commenced, he took sides actively with the South, and subscribed liberally to arm and equip our soldiers — some say as much as $10,000. If he has now turned against us, his position is doubly treacherous. He is the well-known principal partner in the great whiskey-manufacturing firm of this city. What the grounds of the proceeding are is not known, but it is to be inferred that the Government would not take such action upon a slight pretext. The parties named above are confined in the new brick building on the extension of Fifteenth street, on the right-hand side, beyond the auction house of Messrs. Dickinson & Hall.
Congressional. In the Senate, on Saturday, but little was done in open session, hardly enough of importance to warrant giving the proceedings tu extense A. P. Hall and J. J. Pettigrew both of North Carolina, were confirmed as Brigadier-Generals. Resolutions were adopted unanimously declaring that, until the enemy be expelled from the Confederacy, no peace propositions, excluding any portion of our soil, shall be entertained. In the House, Mr. Mills, chairman of the Military Committee, reported a bill appointing an officer Commanding-General of the Confederate Army during the war. It is believed the bill will pass. The House soon went into secret session.
