e missed as keenly the refinements of life to which he had been accustomed after four y.ars, as he did at first. In the last part of the war no one had delicacies, invitations very common among intimate friends were, Do come to dinner or tea, we succeeded in running the blockade this week. This meant coffee after dinner, preserved fruits, loaf-sugar, good tea, or sometimes that which was always very acceptable to Mr. Benjamin's palate, anchovy paste. He used to say, with bread made of Crenshaw's flour spread with the paste, English walnuts from an immense tree in the grounds, and a glass of the McHenry sherry, of which we had a small store, a mans patriotism became rampant. Once, when he was invited to partake of a beefsteak pie, of which he was very fond, he wrote: I have never eaten them in perfection except in the Cunard steamers (my cook had been chef on one), and I shall enjoy the scream of the sea-birds, the lashing of the sea, and see the blue above and the blue below, w
troops were not in proper condition to attack the enemy under his gunboats. I ordered, therefore, that no advance should be made and wrote to request that the commanding general would ride forward at his earliest convenience. Brigadier-General D. R. Jones, in command of his own brigade and that of General Toombs, reported to me just before the arrival of the commanding general. These brigades were put in position on Jackson's left, and Major-General A. P. Hill's division on his right, at Crenshaw's farm. After consultation, further offensive operations were not deemed expedient. Some days were, therefore, occupied in collecting the arms and other property thrown away and abandoned by the enemy, when our forces were withdrawn to their present positions near Richmond. Respectfully submitted, James Longstreet, Major-General Commanding. Return of the Killed, Wounded, and Missing of Longstreet's Division, in the action of the 27th and 30th June, 1862.

Richmond, September 16, 1862. To Major E. F. Paxton, A. A. A. General: Major: For the information of the Major-General commanding, I have the honor to report the operations of the First division (Jackson's) from the time the army moved from Crenshaw's farm, near Orange Court-House, to the twenty-ninth ultimo, when, by the advice of the surgeon, I left the army for this place. On the morning of the twentieth, I left Crenshaw's farm, following the division of Major-General Ewell, which marCrenshaw's farm, following the division of Major-General Ewell, which marched in rear of that of Major-General A. P. Hill, and, after crossing the Rapidan River at Somerville Ford, bivouacked at Stevensburg, in Culpeper County, for the night. Next morning I was ordered to move the division to the front, and, after passing the divisions of General Jackson's corps, near Brandy Station, on the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, I was pushed forward toward Cunningham's Ford, on the Rappahannock. action at Cunningham's Ford, August 21ST.

the right and directed my course down the river. The enemy retired before us, and offered no resistance until we approached Atlee's station, on the Central railroad. At that point a stand was made, but they were forced to flee precipitately, leaving behind a cavalry guidon, which fell into the hands of the Seventh regiment, and much personal baggage. Thence onward they resisted our advance at every favorable point, but with no other effect than to retreat without checking my march. Near Crenshaw's the road on which the column commanded by Major-General Ewell was advancing, and that on which I was advancing, approached within one-fourth of a mile of each other. The heads of our columns reached this point simultaneously; and after a short personal interview between General Ewell and myself, we proceeded on our respective routes. After dislodging the enemy from several ambuscades, with only a small loss to my command, I reached Meadow Bridge road, where I learned from stragglers tha

ear the earthwork. Our artillery opened upon them, soon put them to flight, and we pursued them rapidly in a diagonal direction across the field in rear of the hospital and some distance beyond Bull run, but never overtook the main body, as the Crenshaw battery advanced more rapidly than we did, and poured charge after charge of canister into their disordered ranks. We succeeded, however, in capturing a large number of prisoners. Manassas Plains--August 28, 29 and 30. Next day, after marhers. Soon after General Branch ordered me to take command of the Twenty-eighth and Thirty-third regiments and dislodge the enemy, who were in the woods beyond the field of corn. On passing beyond the small cluster of woods to the right of the Crenshaw battery, we saw the enemy retreating in confusion before Captain Turner's skirmishers. We continued to advance until we saw General Gregg's brigade in the woods to our right. It was here that I learned the enemy were in force in the woods, and

dashing Kearny, aided by Stevens, next fell on Hill's left. Branch's and Pender's North Carolinians and Early's Virginians had moved up to reinforce the front lines, and for some time the line of battle swayed forward and backward. General Jackson had ordered his brigade commanders not to advance much to the front of the railroad, and so they never pressed their advantages far. When Branch advanced, part of the Seventh regiment under Capt. McLeod Turner was deployed as skirmishers around Crenshaw's battery. The Thirty-seventh regiment first became engaged. The Eighteenth and Seventh marched to its aid. Col. R. F. Hoke, with the Thirty-third, was further to the left, and gallantly advanced into the open field and drove the enemy from his front. The Twenty-eighth, under Colonel Lane, fought determinedly in conjunction with Field's left. Finally this brigade, Gregg's and Field's, succeeded in freeing their front of the enemy. This was done, however, only after prolonged and costly

Edwards, and First Rifles, Col. J. Foster Marshall, and Crenshaw's battery in support. They moved forward across the creek, and through the discarded accouterments and burning stores of the enemy, until coming out in an open, Cordero's company was fired upon by artillery in front and Lieutenant Heise was wouriving Gregg back a second time. A third advance was ordered, and now the Fourteenth, Col. Samuel McGowan, being by Gregg's request relieved from outpost duty, was conducted by his aide, Capt. Harry Hammond, to his right flank. Passing through Crenshaw's guns, McGowan's men moved right forward, supported by the other shattered regiments of Gregg's brigade. Tired as they were, says Gregg, by two days and nights of outpost duty, and by a rapid march under a burning sun, they advanced with a che

been raking Hill's front for hours. Stuart had held the Federal infantry advance in check, with Pelham's enfilade fire, as long as he could maintain his exposed position in front of Jackson's right, and had been forced to retire. At noon, the division of General Meade, supported on its right by that of General Gibbon and on its left by that of General Doubleday, advanced to the assault of the position at Hamilton's, held by A. P. Hill. Meade received the fire of McIntosh's and Pegram's, Crenshaw's and Latham's guns, which checked, then broke, and finally drove back his advance. Promptly reforming, Meade and Gibbon marched steadily on through the artillery fire, and rushed against Hill. Archer and Lane and Pender met the assault, and the battle was sternly contested. Meade and Gibbon pressed their attack and entered the woods in the unfortunate interval between Archer and Lane. Lane and Archer were flanked right and left. Lane gave away slowly, and Archer's left was overwhelmed
