in our front; gradually the fire slackened. I was left without further orders, and finding the brigade of Brigadier-General Pender in my rear, moving out into the plank road, I reported to him for orders, and learned that he was in command of the light division, both Major-General A. P. Hill and Brigadier-General Heth having been slightly wounded. After a short time we received our rations, replenished our ammunition, and being rejoined by the rest of the brigade, which had been with Colonel A. Perrin, Fourteenth regiment South Carolina volunteers, I marched the brigade, under orders of Brigadier-General Pender, to a position on the left of the plank road, and was established on the front line of his division, facing eastward, (on Sunday afternoon, third instant,) holding, as he informed me, the key of his position, and which I was ordered by him to hold at all hazards and to the last extremity. Throwing out skirmishers to the front, and covering my entire line, we prepared to bi

Pender promptly advanced his three brigades in line, Lane's on the right, Perrin's in the centre, and Scales's on the left, all south of the Chambersburg Road, the other brigade himself wounded. Of Scales's brigade, but five hundred men and one field officer were left. Perrin's brigade, advancing beyond Pettigrew, attacked Biddle, who, after a gallant resistance, was comish his position. The check to Scales had, however, enabled all the batteries to retire. But Perrin still continuing to press on, the order to abandon Seminary Hill was given. Scales, although badly wounded, collected the fragments of his brigade, and joining Perrin's, still pressed on, when the Federal line, now attacked in front and on both flanks, fell back toward Gettysburg. Perrin contiPerrin continued to pursue to the town, where he halted, having captured one gun, belonging to Reynolds's New York battery. Lane, still beset by Gamble, had been unable to take any part in this last attack, an

C.,) and Thomas's Georgia brigade, moved from their encampments oy engaged with the enemy, the division was formed in line of battle as follows: Perrin and Scales on the right, and Lane and Thomas on the left of the turnpike. In tngaged with the enemy.--About 4 o'clock the three brigades of Lane, Scales, and Perrin, were ordered by Major Gen. Pender to advance and to pass Major-Gen. Heth's divs; the same that was occupied the next day by Pegram's battalion of artillery. Perrin, after passing Heth's division, reformed his brigade in a ravine and moved rapiy. Upon reaching the edge of the grove which covers the crest of the ridge, Col. Perrin finding himself without support either on his right or his left, Gen. Lane hle the artillerists to make off with their guns. It is needless to say that Col. Perrin and his gallant brigade deserve all credit for the manner and spirit with wh
