Leaving the gallant Early with only nine thousand men to handle Sedgwick, he himself, with the forty-eight thousand remaining, marched straight for Cha portion of the Federal army on a serious defensive. No time was to be lost. Sedgwick would soon drive back the inferior force of Early, and come thundering on his ing and broken back upon the Rappahannock. Hooker thus disposed of, now for Sedgwick. Early had by his gallant resistance, gained precious time and given serious occupation to Sedgwick, but the immensely superior numbers of the latter had at last forced Early back and were advancing upon Lee's rear towards Chancellorsville. Lctorious forces and, rushing to the reinforcement of Early, speedily converted Sedgwick's advance into a swift retreat; which would have resulted in his capture had n

Sumner himself, leading Sedgwick's division, followed the track of Hooker and Mansf to fear from Hooker and Mansfield, the advance of Sedgwick's five or six thousand fresh men threatened to ove old division, clung tenaciously to some ground in Sedgwick's front, while Hood, in the woods near the church,nd opened the way for a crushing flank attack upon Sedgwick. In a few moments this attack was made by McLaws,n conjunction, and in twenty minutes two fifths of Sedgwick's men were hors de combat, and the remainder were olleagues held the field. When Sumner was leading Sedgwick to the attack the other two divisions of his corpsH. Anderson's division reinforced it. Sumner, when Sedgwick was being pressed, ordered French and Richardson t this time. General Palfrey, a gallant officer of Sedgwick's division, who has given us the best account so fpaign, says: The right attack spent its force when Sedgwick was repulsed.

If Sedgwick had captured the heights before daylight, and ground, a chance to deal some fatal blows at Sedgwick's moving column, which would be more or less y in attacking Sedgwick was fully as great as Sedgwick's in forcing Marye's Heights.

Sedgwick lay quietly in our front, and contented himse his own division up the plank road to attack Sedgwick in the rear. Let us now pause and look at five thousand men, between Fredericksburg and Sedgwick; Sedgwick between Early and Lee, with twenty in front, while Early attacked in the rear. Sedgwick, finding himself attacked front and rear by fry effort of the enemy to gain his rear—drove Sedgwick from his flank—gained the rear of Hooker's ni of Fredericksburg with over 30,000. Why did Sedgwick cross a portion of his army over the river atHooker on the 1st of May, why were Hooker and Sedgwick both inactive?

On the afternoon of the 10th a portion of the Sixth corps (General Sedgwick's) succeeded in piercing Rodes's line on the front, occupied by Doles's Georgia brigade. General Lee had his quarters for the day on a knoll about a hundred and fifty yards in the rear of this part of the lines and in full view of it. He at once sent an aiddecamp to General Edward Johnson, on Rodes's right, and mounting his horse, assisted in rallying the troops and forming them for the recapture of the lines.
