repeatedly charged by the enemy and retaken by our cavalry; and at the time that the two guns of McGregor's were brought toward the crest of the hill, it was very doubtful which party had possession of it. The two guns were, however, moved up rapidly, and scarcely had they reached the top (and before they could be put in position), when a small party of the enemy charged them. The charge was met by the cannoneers of the pieces. Lieutenant Ford killed one of the enemy with his pistol; Lieutenant Hoxton killed one, and private Sully, of McGregor's Battery, knocked one off his horse with a sponge-staff. Several of the party were taken prisoners by the men at the guns. Aid was close at hand for these gallant cannoneers. Cobb's Georgia Legion, under Colonel P. 11. B. Young, cleared the hill of the enemy, and concerted charges, made by other regiments of Hampton's and Jones' Brigades, placed it securely in our possession. And now covetous eyes were cast toward the foot of the hill,

ulsed by Stovall's Georgia, and Bradley's Mississippi brigades, which latter had been moved to the right. Smith's Division, of Cheatham's Corps, reported to me about 2 p. m., to meet any attempt of the enemy to turn our right flank. It was put in position, but was not needed, and by order of the Commanding General it started to Brentwood, about 3 1/2 p. m. The artillery fire of the enemy during the entire day was very heavy, and right nobly did the artillery of my corps, under Lieutenant General Hoxton, perform their duty. Courtney's battalion, under Captain Douglass, was in Johnson's front; Johnson's battalion was in Stevenson's front, and Eldrigc's battalion, under Captain Fenner, was in Clayton's front. The officers and men of the artillery behaved admirably, and too much praise cannot be bestowed upon this efficient arm of the service in the Army of Tennessee.

ederal troops. The brigades of my division advanced in separate columns in readiness to deploy into line of battle. Finding masses of the enemy apparently in line of battle some distance in front, I directed sections of Hodgson's, Ducatel's and Hoxton's batteries to open fire upon them, awaiting in the meantime the advance of General Van Dorn's division on my right. Having communicated with General Trapier's division, which had already arrived on my left, I then deployed the columns into liney although wounded. Colonel Fagan, commanding the Fourth brigade, speaks in high terms of the bearing of the First Arkansas and Second Tennessee, composing his command, and a section of Captain Ketchum's battery attached to his brigade. Captain Hoxton, with two of James' rifled guns, temporarily attached to the First brigade; Captain Hodgson, with a section of two guns of the Washington artillery, also serving with the First brigade; Captain Ducatel, with his Orleans Guards battery of six
