n the next fight, but this is hope, not certainty. The Merrimac must dock for repairs. We here give a dispatch from J. G. Barnard, Chief Engineer, to G. V. Fox, Assistant Secretary of the Navy, dated Fairfax Courthouse, March 12, 1862, which says: The possibility of the Merrimac appearing again paralyzes the movements of this army by whatever route is adopted.

The steady advance of the other Federal divisions drove back by nightfall the remainder of Longstreet's forces on the left of the pike to the very crest of the mountain. But the pike itself was still held, and the effort of the Federals to move up it met with a bloody repulse. So the retreat was effected without diffi
