ng between the pickets. Carpenter's battery was detached from my brigade on the twelfth, and was not under my orders during the engagement. A report of its participation in the engagement by Lieutenant McKendree, commanding, is transmitted herewith. I am much indebted to my regimental officers, Captains Nadenbousch and Colston, acting field officers of the Second Virginia regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Gardiner and Major Terry, Fourth Virginia regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Williams and Captain Newton, Fifth Virginia regiment; Lieutenant-Colonel Edmondson and Major Shriver, Forty-seventh Virginia regiment, and Colonel Lee, Thirty-third Virginia regiment, for the exhibition of great gallantry, skill, and coolness in the discharge of their duties. Lieutenant-Colonel Gardiner, after having passed unhurt, and distinguished for his gallantry, through all the battles of the campaign, (Port Republic, Richmond, Cedar Mountain, Manassas, and Sharpsburg,) fell, at the head of his regiment, sev

Jackson's corps of the enemy attacks on the left. General Gibbon slightly wounded. General Bayard mortally wounded by a shell. Things do not loo, Gibbon's, Doubleday's, and Birney's divisions, as those by which the attack was made and supported. They had it in proof, and in General Hardie's reports, that Newton's and Sickles's divisions also aided in that movement, while the divisions of Howe and Brooks also engaged the enemy during the day. However easy of explanation it may be that the employment of Newton's division was not referred to in the report, it is difficult to understand why Sickles's division should be omitted, when the only evidonce they have published on this subject discloses the fact that Sickles's division was also engaged. The committee further say, that the attack was in re
infantry. I present the reports of the Colonels Abercrombie and Thomas, and Lieutenants Perkins and Hudson, and take much pleasure in bearing testimony, as an eye-witness, to the admirable manner in which their commands were handled and their commendations earned. I also bear testimony to the efficient service in posting portions of the troops, and conducting them to the front and into action, rendered by the members of my staff present and on the field of battle, Colonel Porter, Captain John Newton, and Lieutenant Babcock, and Majors Price and Biddle, who were employed conveying orders, also Surgeon Tripler, in attention to the wounded. The loss of the enemy was over sixty in killed. The number of the wounded cannot be ascertained, as a large number were carried off the field. I am, Sir, Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, R. Patterson, Major-General, commanding. Circular. headquarters Department of Pennsylvania, Williamsport, Md., July 1, 1861.
bridles. Commanding officers of the detachments from the various regiments engaged mention, in their reports, as deserving special attention: In the Fifth, private Wm. J. Haynes, company F, badly wounded; private A. R. Harwood, company E; private Henry Wooding, company C, especially commended, seized the colors when the horse of the color-bearer was shot, and carried them bravely through the fight; Sergeants Morecock and Ratcliffe, and private George James, company H. In the Fourth, Captains Newton and Old, Lieutenant Hobson and Adjutant Fontaine, seriously wounded. Sergeant Kimborough, of company G, deserves particular notice: wounded early in the day, he refused to leave the field. In the last charge, he was the first to spring to the ground to open the fence; then dashing on at the head of the column, he was twice sabred over the head, his arm shattered by a bullet, captured and carried over the river, when he escaped and walked back, twelve miles, to his camp. Lieutenant-Co
enty-fourth Brigadier-General Chalmers, at Panola, was directed to move with all his cavalry and light artillery, via Oxford, to Okolona, to intercept the force of the enemy then at Newton Station, on the Southern Railroad. Captain Henderson, commanding special scouts at Grenada, was also instructed to send couriers to Generals Loring, Buford, and Ruggles, notifying those officers by telegrams from the nearest telegraph office, and advising each station on the road that the enemy had reached Newton, on the Southern road. A force was also ordered to proceed from Jackson to Forrest or Lake Station, or to such other points as circumstances might render necessary. Major-General Gardner, at Port Hudson, was notified that the enemy had reached the Southern Railroad; that it was probable he would endeavor to form a junction with Banks at Baton Rouge, and was instructed to send all his disposable cavalry to intercept him.
