pidly, and as it commenced to descend the hill opposite the ridge upon which the enemy was posted, it encountered a most terrific fire of grape and shell on the left flank, and grape and musketry in front, but still it pressed forward at a double quick, until the bottom was reached, a distance of about seventy-five yards from the enemy's fortified position. Here the fire was most severe; every field officer, with one exception, was either killed or wounded. General Scales and Assistant Adjutant General Riddick were disabled by severe wounds. The brigade halted to return this fire of the enemy, throwing in confusion somewhat the line. Major-General Pender, with portions of his staff, and General Scales, though suffering much from a severe wound in the leg, succeeded in rallying the brigade, which immediately pushed forward again, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Gordon, Thirty-fourth North Carolina troops, and joined the pursuit of the enemy, driving him through Gettysburg.

He never spoke afterwards, dying in a few minutes. An inquest was held by Mayor Riddick on Thursday morning, and a verdict rendered according to the above testimony. Capt. Fisher was about 45 years old — was a man of high social position at home — was Cashier of the Exchange Bank of Petersburg, and a very pious member of the Baptist Church. We learn that he leaves a wife and several children. His friends were telegraphed, and came down to receive his body, which went up on the afternoon train, nearly all his company going up with it.
