ces will remain where they are for the present, ready to advance, if found practicable. . . It seems to me the enemy must be weak enough at one or the other place to let us in. Meade, accordingly, with four divisions of infantry under Warren and Parke, advanced towards Poplar Spring church and Peeble's farm, about two miles west of the Weldon road, while Gregg's division of cavalry moved still further to the left and rear. Hancock was left in command of the trenches in front of Petersburg. from Petersburg, they may push to oppose you. To Meade he said: If the enemy can be broken and started, follow him up closely. I can't help believing that the enemy are prepared to leave Petersburg, if forced a little. Later in the afternoon, Parke, moving on Warren's left, towards the Boydtown road, was fiercely attacked, and forced back with heavy loss; but Warren sent a division promptly to his support, and the Ninth corps rallied. For a time the fighting was severe, but the rebels were
overing every approach to the Boydton road. Parke, who was to start out nearest the enemy, had bof this movement included a vigorous attack by Parke upon the right of the rebel entrenched line; b words to Meade were almost those in the text: Parke, who starts out nearest to the enemy, should bhem, they begin to give way. Meade's order to Parke, however, contained these words: It is probablwhich I could suggest a change is in regard to Parke. If he finds the enemy's fortifications in go replied: The orders for to-morrow intend that Parke should act in the manner you suggest; that is rps commanders. Warren, moving on the left of Parke, was to cross Hatcher's run, below the bend, and then support the Ninth corps; but if Parke failed to break the enemy's line, Warren was ordered slashing and abatis. The consequence was that Parke made no attempt to assault. Warren, however, half-past 9 Warren was notified by Meade that Parke would probably be unable to force the enemy's
on. Wherever a rebel force found itself, it must find also an irresistible enemy in its front and rear; every rebel who was not killed must surrender; and that not because he was weary, or disheartened, or chose to yield, but because he must do so or die. At this time again Grant saw reason to apprehend a movement of Lee before Richmond or Petersburg, either to screen the withdrawal of the rebel army or to distract attention from operations elsewhere. On the 22nd of February, he said to Parke, who was in command of the army of the Potomac for a few days, in the absence of Meade: As there is a possibility of an attack from the enemy at any time, and especially an attempt to break your centre, extra vigilance should be kept up both by the pickets and the troops on the line. Let commanders understand that no time is to be lost awaiting orders, if an attack is made, in bringing all their resources to the point of danger. With proper alacrity in this respect, I would have no object

Parke lost seventy killed, four hundred and twenty-f the enemy in their respective fronts, west of Parke, but Humphreys had already advanced without or took horses, and joined the moving column.

I am moving with the Fifth corps from Deep creek as rapidly as possible in the direction of Amelia court-house. Grant forwarded a copy of this to Meade, and directed him: If you cannot find roads free from trains, let your troops pass them and press on, making as long a march to-day as possible. At the same time he instructed Meade to turn the Ninth corps into the Cox road, to guard the railway in the rear of Ord. At 2.30 P. M., Meade replied: The necessary orders have been sent to General Parke, who has now one division on the Cox road. . . . I have also directed General Wright to push ahead with his command as far to-day as is consistent with its efficiency, and, if necessary, turning the Fifth corps and cavalry trains out of the road till he has passed. Meade, however, considered that there was no emergency calling for a night march. The Second corps arrived at Deep creek between seven and eight o'clock. The men were fatigued, having been marching, working, or standing for

Major-General Parke will be left in command of all the army left for holding the lines about Petersburg and City Point, subject, of course, to orders from the commander of the army of the Potomac. The Ninth army corps will be left intact to hold the present line of works, so long as the whole line now occupied by us is held.
