As will be seen further on, their materiel was also of an inferior quality; and it required the courage and the daring of a few men like Pendleton, Stuart's chief of artillery, to compensate in part for this inferiority. This was not the case with the Confederate artillery in position. That portion of it which had charge of the defences of their seaports was mostly recruited in the cities, among

The firing is thus kept up at a distance for three-quarters of an hour. Stuart, in spite of two or three fruitless attempts, fails to carry the positions of the Federals. Two of his regiments, meetin
