Hill's Brigade, June 19, 1861. A. P. Hill, Colonel, Commanding Brigade, C. S. A., Romney, Va.: I have the honor to report that on yesterday, at eight o'clock P. M., in pursuance of your order, I took two companies of the Thirteenth Virginia Volunteers, C. S. A., commanded by Captains Crittenden and White, and also two companies of the Third Tennessee regiment Volunteers, C. S. A., commanded by Captains Lilliards and Mathas, and advanced eighteen miles west to the line of the enemy, upon the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and found them posted in some strength, with two pieces of artillery, on the north bank of the Potomac, at the twenty-first railroad bridge on said road. The enemy had no pickets posted. At five o'clock A. M., after reconnoitring, I gave the order to charge the enemy, which

us, and the country to their left densely wooded, while that on their right, except for a few rods at the mouth of the creek, was open, thus giving them the advantage of cover, while our troops, in case they attempted to advance their right wing, would be fully exposed to the enemy's fire. As the ammunition of our boys was now getting low, an order was given to charge bayonets. The left wing, composed of the fragment of the Twenty-first and one or two companies of the Twelfth, led by Lieut.-Col. White, promptly obeyed, and, rushing down the hill, forded the stream, which was more than knee deep, and rushed upon the enemy's intrenchments. Had the movement on the right been equally prompt, the rebels would have been utterly routed; but, owing partly to the incompetency of their officers, and partly to the fact that they were badly disciplined, they faltered, and soon after fled. The left could not hold their position alone, although they did all that could have been expected of vete
being in line, the column was all in motion at eight o'clock A. M. The river fleet, with six companies of the Twelfth Ohio, under the immediate command of Major Hines, started up the river at nine o'clock A. M. The Economy, Commodore Beltzhoover's flag-ship of the fleet, led the van, provided with one piece of artillery, placed upon the bow to answer any summons from the shore. The other four companies of the Twelfth regiment were with the main body of the army, under command of Lieutenant Colonel White. The boats proceeded cautiously up the river, Major Hines keeping scouts on the river banks to prevent any surprise from masked batteries. After proceeding about seven miles, Major Hines came upon the enemy strongly intrenched in a commanding position. Major Hines sent back word to Colonel Lowe, who was one mile behind on the boats with three companies of the Twelfth regiment, to come forward and support him in the attack. Colonel Lowe, not knowing the position of the enemy, and
forty of the Naval Brigade, and bearing companies A, F and C, (Captains White, Winchester, and Louther,) of the Tenth regiment, left the fortought back, together with one of the rebel guns, as a trophy, by Capt. White. In the barn they found five boxes, recently emptied of rifles,her's company were now put in command of a bridge near by, while Capt. White was sent across with his as skirmishers in the adjacent woods annd was aroused. Not many minutes after the crack of rifles upon Capt. White's pickets announced the presence of the rebels. Our men quicklys around the open field where our troops had formed. As soon as Capt. White's men were in rank, he marched them out under the open fire and owed any thing but bravery. The credit of the affair belongs to Capt. White and his company, and to Lieut. Ryan, who rushed on bravely at th scarcely succeeded, after much effort, in getting her off, when Capt. White, who was again ashore with pickets, saw movements in the woods a
