rgeant Kinney, under the guidance of Captain Leigh, of company A.--This officer acted with the most conspicuous gallantry during the whole of the action.--He took a most exposed position by the side of the colors, and never left except to bring up his men to the crest of the ridge, and point out to them where to aim their fire.--He was cool and collected, and encouraged his men to fight bravely and effectively, by example and direction. Shortly after the firing commenced on our part, 2d Lieut. John Heth, commanding Company D, fell, pierced by a ball through the body, whilst gallantly directing the fire of his men. First Lieut. Turner, commanding Company B, (who insisted upon taking part in the operations of the day, notwithstanding the fact that he was quite ill and feeble,) behaved in an exceedingly gallant manner. Second Lieut. Overton, of Company A, also behaved with great gallantry, exerting himself to make the men move forward to the ridge, and deliver their fire effectively.
