, reaching and occupying Strasburg on the evening of June 1st, just in time to be too late to head Jackson, who had retreated through that place a few hours before. Next morning, Gen. Bayard, Gen. McDowell, in his testimony aforesaid, blames Gen. Ord, commanding one of his divisions, for lack of energy in pushing it on from Front Royal to Strasburg, and adds, that he sent forward Gen. Shields from Front Royal with express orders to go on the direct road to Strasburg, and not cross the North Fork of the Shenandoah until near that place. He adds: After some time in getting Ord's, or rather Ricketts's, division together, I started out to tile front. I met one of Gen. Shields's aids-de-camp coming in from Front Royal and asked him how far out he had met Gen. Shields. He said he had rot met him at all. I told him he had started to go out, and he said he must have lost his way. Without stopping to see what had become of him. I took Bayard's cavalry brigade, the only one ready t

Ord had been watching a Rebel demonstration from threat. Next morning, hearing guns in his front, Ord moved rapidly into Iuka, but found no enemy theretreated on the Fulton road during the night.

s avowed to confer with Gen. Pemberton, if he wished, at such time as he should appoint. Pemberton accordingly named 3 P. M. of that day; at which time, the meeting took place: Pemberton being attended by Bowen and Montgomery; Grant by McPherson, Ord, Logan, and A. J. Smith, beside his staff. Pemberton required that his men should be paroled and marched beyond our lines with eight days rations drawn from their own stores [they applied to our commissary for rations next day ]; the officers to d they had so hardly won. By 2 P. A. of the 4th, our columns were in motion; next evening, they had united with Sherman's former command, enabling him to cross the Big Black on the 6th with an army little less than 50,000 strong. His right, under Ord, crossed at the railroad; his center, under Steele, at Messenger's Ford, above+; his left, under Parke, still higher up the river; the latter alone encountering no serious resistance. Thus advancing over a region already wasted by war, and now pa

Butler, in his turn, crossing the James, advanced with the 10th corps, now commanded by Birney, and the 18th, now under Ord, and struck Sept. 29. the enemy's outpost below Chapin's farm, known as Fort Harrison, which he assaulted and took, with 15 guns, and a considerable portion of the enemy's intrenchments. He attempted to follow up his blow with the capture of Fort Gilmer, which was next in order; but was repulsed by Maj.-Gen. Field, Defenses of Richmond and Petersburg. with a loss of 300. On our side, Gen. Ord was wounded, and Brig.-Gen. Burnham killed. Fort Harrison was so important to Richmond, that Field resolved to retake it, but deferred the assault till next morning, when he hurled three brigades against it on one side, while Gen. Hoke charged on the other. These assaults failed to be made simultaneously, and of course were both repuls

The 9th (Parke's) and one of Ord's divisions were left to hold our extended line decisive triumphs at hand. Wright, Parke, and Ord, still holding our intrenchments facing Petersbth the 6th corps, supported by two divisions of Ord's, charging at dawn, drove every thing before h guns and several thousand prisoners: meantime, Ord's other division had forced the enemy's lines ahe south were assaulted by Gibbon's division of Ord's corps, which carried by storm two strong and om over 6,000 were taken this day.
