antly struggling up rocky steeps, mainly wooded, where every wall, or fence, or inequality of ground, favors the combatants who stand on the defensive. The disparity in numbers between those actually engaged was not very great — possibly three to two--but then, our men were inspirited by the consciousness that a great army stood behind them. Still, the ground was stubbornly contested, foot by foot; Gen. Hatch, commanding the 1st division, being disabled by a wound, and succeeded by Gen. A. Doubleday. Col. Wain-wright, 76th New York, who now took command of Doubleday's brigade, was likewise wounded. But Hooker steadily advanced; and had fairly flanked and worsted the Rebel left, when darkness put an end to the fray. The struggle on our left commenced later, and was signalized by similar gallantry on both sides; but numbers prevailed over desperation, and the Rebels were steadily forced back until the crest of the mountain was won. Here fell, about sunset, Maj.-Gen. Jesse L. Ren

Hanter overruled by the President Gen. McClellan on the negro Horace Greeley to Lincoln the response do, to the Chicagno obvious advantage to the national cause, nor even to the improvement of the dubious loyalty of those whom the exhibition most delighted and edified. Gen. Abner Doubleday, being placed in command of the defenses of Washington, answered, April 6, 1862. through his Adjutant, to an inquiry on the subject, as follows: Sir:--I am directed by Gen. Doubleday to say, in answer to your letter of the 2d instant, that all negroes coming into the lines of any of the camps or forts under his command are to be treated as persons, and not as chattels. Under no circumstances, has the commander of a fort or camp the power of surrendering persons claimed as
g to fall in defense of the soil of his native State, and almost in sight of his home. Gen. Abner Doubleday came up half an hour afterward, and assumed command; but the residue of the corps, with t pursuers, enveloping the Rebel advance, and making prisoners of Archer and 800 of his men. Doubleday fell back to Seminary ridge, just west of the village, where he was joined by the residue of hs corps; the 11th coming up almost simultaneously and taking post on his right; Howard ranking Doubleday and assuming command, assigning the 11th corps to Schurz. Here the struggle was renewed with t of Howard's (11th), reenforced by 2,000 Vermonters, under Stannard, and Reynolds's (1st, now Doubleday's) corps held the face of Cemetery hill, looking toward Gettysburg and Early's division, but mefeat. For once, the Army of the Potomac had won a clean, honest, acknowledged victory. Gen. Doubleday, testifying before the Committee on the Conduct of the War, says: About 2 P. M., a treme
