Just before dark, Colonel C. informed me that General Long had ordered all the guns out at dark. I informed General Ramseur, and went over to General Lee's headquarters to find General Long. He (General Lee) told me he did not intend for the guns to be brought out until the troops left. I then sentGeneral Long. He (General Lee) told me he did not intend for the guns to be brought out until the troops left. I then sent word back to General Ramseur and Captains D., J., and G., not to move until the troops moved, but the orders for N., P., and C. were not changed, and all moved out that night, and left the troops on Johnson's line without artilllery. [This was the cause of the disaster which happened next morning to Johnson's division.--Editor.] Just at night General Ramseur had a report from Major O., commanding his sharpshooters, that the enemy were using axes in our front.

The Second cavalry brigade, consisting of the First, Third and Fourth regiments Ohio veteran cavalry, Colonel Eli Long commanding, left Columbia, Tennessee, May twenty-second, and marching via Pulaski and Elktown, Tennessee, and Athens, Alabama, reached Decatur, Alabama, on the afternoon of the twenty-sixth. Hardly had the brigade encamped, and the horses been unsaddled, when boots and saddles was sounded, and the word flew that Roddy had driven in the pickets. Out went the brigade on the Courtland road, and marching six miles, the First Ohio in advance, found pickets, rebel regiments of cavalry, apparently on a reconnoissance. A volley was fired from each regiment, when the First forming, part in line to the right of the road, and part in column in the road, charged with drawn sabres. The rebels did not stop to pass more compliments, but turned tail, and such running was beautiful to beho

The enemy threw down their arms and surrendered with cheers at the suddenness with which they were captured. The general officers present at this engagement were Generals Early, Long, Wharton, Lilley, and Rosser, and it has always been a wonder to me how they escaped, unless they hid in obscure places in the houses of the town. Colonel Capehart, with his brigade, continued the pursuit of the enemy's train which was stretched for miles over the mountains, and the other two brigades pushed rapidly after him, with orders to encamp on the east side of the Blue Ridge. The substantial results of this brilliant fight were eleven pieces of artillery with horses and caissons com

Our quiet village was thrown into quite a stir last Wednesday, about two o'clock, by the appearance of a flag-of-truce coming in from the rebel side of the road, and demanding the unconditional surrender of this post. The command here, consisting of two companies, I and F, of the First Maryland, Potomac Home Brigade, under command of Lieutenant John Beard, who was at the time away on official business, the command at the time falling upon Lieutenants Long and Matthews, who had to comply with the demand of the rebels, their force consisting of about four hundred cavalry, with two pieces of artillery. The rebels then entered the camp, taking prisoners all the men found about the encampment, some forty seven, after which they entirely destroyed the camp with all its equipage, together with all the books and papers belonging to the command. During this time a large number entered the store at this place and plundered and carried off nearly

In accordance with orders from Brigadier-General Long, I sent the Third Ohio to the right and rear to cover led horses and pack mules. The other three regiments, Fourth Ohio, Seventh Pennsylvania, and Fourthard a few hundred yards in advance, and was immediately engaged with the enemy's skirmishers. At about four P. M., Major-General Wilson, accompanied by Brigadier-General Long, came forward to my skirmish line. After examining the ground for a few moments General Wilson ordered an assault. The First brigade was now moved to my right, and my skirmishers from that direction were drawn in by direction of General Long. I left one regiment, the Fourth Michigan, to support the Chicago Board of Trade battery, the Third Ohio was still protecting the led animals, and was at this moment skirmishing with Chalmers' advance.
