General Henry Heth, with a force nearly 4000 strong, was ordere reserve brigade under Preston Smith. In the meantime General Kirby Smith had reached the field with the two brigades (McCray's and McNair's) forming General Churchill's division. He promptly dispatched that officer with one brigade to turn the e bold and determined charge threw the enemy into disorder. Two miles farther north the Federal force made a stand, and McCray's gallant brigade, by a rapid march, struck their right, while Cleburne's division, now commanded by Colonel Preston Smith, moved to the attack in front. The celerity of McCray's movements brought him into action before the other troops reached the field, and he suffered from the concentration of a galling and destructive fire; but the approach of Preston Smith, with

At the battle of Fort Craig, in New-Mexico, when several of the enemy's guns had been silenced, six hundred Texans, picked men, armed with carbines, revolvers, and bowie-knives, made a charge on McCray's battery.

the screaming of shells over our heads, announced that victory was yet to be won. The Federals had fallen back to the outskirts of the town of Richmond, and chosen a strong position on the crest of a hill, their line passing through the cemetry. McCray's Texas brigade was ordered to turn their right, while Preston Smith advanced steadily on their left and centre. Again the fierce hum of minnie balls was followed by the sullen thud of the rifle, and cannon boomed at short intervals like the baying of the deep-mouthed bloodhounds above the din and clatter of the beagles. We were met with great obstinacy, and the fighting was more vigorous all along the lines, and the loss on both sides greater than at any former period of the day. But McCray succeeded in flanking, and Preston Smith, with a dashing charge through a murderous fire, captured the cemetery. A charge was now ordered of the entire line, and the enemy pressed rapidly through the town. On the farther side they made a feeble

Scott; Eighth Texas cavalry, Col. J. A. Wharton. On the 9th of August General Bragg added to General Smith's command from his own, the brigades of Generals Cleburne and Preston Smith, forming temporarily a fourth division under Cleburne, and also Gen. T. J. Churchill's division, including the brigades of McCray and McNair, constituting the third division of General Smith's army. On the 9th, General Smith, in a letter to General Bragg, says that from Buell's present position Sparta would seem to be one of his natural lines into middle Tennessee. He also says that he learns that Gen. Geo. W. Morgan has nearly a month's supply of provisions. If this be true, the reduction of the place would be a matter of more time than I presume you are willing I should take. As my move to Lexington would effe

McCray of the cavalry, but detailed in command of the battery — He had also a small battery of two howitzers. The enemy are were alleged. They however, made a desperate charge on the Howitzer battery, but were repulsed with great loss. Captain McCray's battery was defended by Captain Plumpton's company of United States infantry, and a portion of Colonel Pino's regim with the dead. With his artillerymen cut down, and his supports reported killed, wounded and flying from the field, Captain McCray six down calmly and quietly on one of his guns, and with revolver in hand refused to fly or desert his flag.
