bon's brigades; Barlow on Mott's left, — but were repulsed with considerable loss. Burnside found the task of driving the enemy [it was but a picket force] out of the railroad cut a formidable one, and, assaulting, established his corps within a hundred yards of the enemy's main line. . . . Warren's assault was well made, some of Griffin's men being killed within 20 feet of the enemy's works, but it was no more successful than the others. His losses were very severe. . . . On the right, Martindale advanced and gained some rifle-pits, but did not assault the main line. On the Confederate side, the day was not considered a day of battle, but only of demonstrations and reconnoissance. None of our reenforcements were engaged, the only fighting done having been by Hoke's division and Wise's brigade, who, under Beauregard, had already borne the whole brunt of the four days and three nights. The official diary of Longstreet's corps says of the day:— We arrive in Petersburg and Ke

t did not become directly engaged, being held in reserve; but his services are referred to by General McCall as worthy of credit for the promptness and zeal with which he carried out all orders sent to him. The brigades of Generals Griffin and Martindale of Morell's division were also, late in the day, brought up to within supporting distance, but, with the exception of two of Griffin's regiments, took no part in the action. During the time that the fight lasted, from three o'clock in the afl Butterfield does not command me, but his command being a corps, and I his senior, in command only of a division, I have a right to complain; just as I did when, in command of a brigade, so many of my juniors were commanding divisions. Again, Martindale belongs to that corps, and will doubtless, now that he is acquitted by the court, return to duty, and he is my senior, and would have the right to command it. I presume you have seen Halleck's letter in regard to the supplying of the army.

ammunition. This maxim, or aphorism, is worthy of a place among those of Jomini. The enemy's force at Petersburg on the 18th embraced Hancock's, Burnside's, and Warren's corps, with a portion—the stronger portion—of Smith's corps, under General Martindale, and Neill's division of Wright's corps, with all its artillery. General Meade, in his report, says: During the night of the 16th Neill's division, 6th Corps, arrived, relieving Brooks's division of the 18th, who, accompanied by Major-General Smith, returned to Bermuda Hundreds, leaving General Martindale in command of Smith's troops. In a preceding part of his report General Meade also says: Early on the morning of the 16th I proceeded to City Point, and from thence to Petersburg, meeting, when about half-way to the latter place, the Lieutenant-General Commanding, by whom I was instructed to take command of the troops then in front of Petersburg, and, if practicable, push the enemy across the Appomattox. At the same time ord

Every officer and man under General Wise's notice behaved with gallantry, and the enemy were successfully repulsed and checked against great odds, until reinforcements arrived.
