ng has occurred daily with the enemy's cavalry since then, and it was supposed the enemy would give battle at Bardstown. By troops reached that point on the fourth, driving the enemy's rear guard of cavalry and artillery of the main body to Springfield, whither pursuit was continued. The centre corps, under General Gilbert, moved in the direct road from Springfield to Perrysville, and arrived on the seventh one mile from town, where the enemy was found to be in force. The left column, undeSpringfield to Perrysville, and arrived on the seventh one mile from town, where the enemy was found to be in force. The left column, under Gen. McCook, came upon the Maxville road about ten o'clock yesterday, (the eighth.) It was ordered into position to attack, and a strong reconnoissance directed. At four o'clock I received a request from Gen. McCook for reenforcements, and learned that the left had been seriously engaged for several hours, and that the right and left of that corps were being turned and severely pressed. Reenforcements were immediately sent forward from the centre. Orders were also sent to the right colum

Lytle's — which formed the right wing of General Rousseau's division. The Thirty-sixth brigade is composed of the Fifty-second Ohio and Eighty-fifth, Eighty-sixth, and One Hundred and Twenty-fifth Illinois. All are new troops, but General Buell is said to have expressed the greatest confidence in them, confidence which their subsequent conduct fully justified. At two o'clock on Wednesday morning, Col. McCook began to move forward with his brigade, accompanied by Barnett's battery from Illinois. It was nearly dawn when they arrived within sight of the position they were to occupy, but the moon was still shining brightly, and as they approached the bottom of the hill they could distinctly see the rebel pickets upon the crest. The Eighty-fifth Illinois, Colonel Moore, was immediately deployed upon the right of the road, the front and flank covered by skirmishers, and the Fifty-second Ohio, Lieutenant-Colonel Cowan commanding, was similarly deployed upon the left.

lane which ran north and south, and opened out into the field where Loomis was posted, just where stood the group of trees I have mentioned. The Ninth brigade, Col. Harris of the Second Ohio commanding, was on the left of the lane on somewhat higher ground, partly in the open field and partly in a neck of woods, which extended into the cleared ground, and further to the left was the Twenty-eighth brigade, Col. Starkweather of the First Wisconsin, commanding. This brigade was formed at Nashville about five weeks since, and had taken the place of the Eighth brigade when the Third division was reorganized at that city. I missed the gallant and patriotic Eighth. Falsehood, misrepresentation, envy and malignity had driven it from the Third division, where it had previously won immortal renown and had scattered it abroad over the South. One of its regiments, the Twenty-fourth Illinois, was in this battle, however, and gloriously maintained its honor. The Twenty-eighth brigade s

Captain: I have the honor to make the following report of the operations of my division in the action of the eighth instant, near Perryville, Kentucky. In accordance with the instructions of the General Commanding, I directed Colonel Dan McCook, with his brigade and Barnett's battery, to occupy the heights in front on Doctor's Creek, so as to secure that water for our men. This was done very handsomely after a sharp skirmish at daylight in the morning, giving us f

t richly deserved, I may, by unintentional omissions, seem to do injustice. It is of course impossible to notice all the meritorious actions occurring upon so extensive a battle-field as that of Perryville; and, for the present, I must content myself with noticing no other than such as fell under my own observation, or were obtained from sources that no one would question. I wish to speak in terms of moderation, but I confidently believe, from the opinions of those who have been at Pittsburgh Landing, Fort Donelson and Pea Ridge, that the severest action of the war (in proportion to numbers engaged) has just taken place, and that, all things considered, our arms have achieved a victory — not a brilliant triumph; not even a complete success, but still a victory, and one, too, which had it not been for our habitual failure to follow up our advantages, might have been final, so far as it concerned the rebel army under Bragg.

vanced his pickets in the woods on our left front, and during the night captured a good many of our men, who went there believing we still held the woods. It was in this way that my Assistant Adjustant-General, Lieutenant F. J. Jones, and Lieut. J. A. Grover, Assistant Adjutant-General Seventeenth brigade, were captured by the enemy. I regretted the capture of these young gentlemen deeply. They had behaved most gallantly during the day, and I can truly say deserve well of their country. Majin great force toward the ground we had just been holding. I immediately ordered my regiment to face about, and advanced to meet the enemy, intending, in the absence of ammunition, to charge him with the bayonet. I was met here, however, by Lieut. Grover, of Col. Lytle's staff, with an order from him to retire. Accordingly, we turned into a ravine on the right of the road, and were supplying ourselves with ammunition, when, hearing that Col. Lytle, my brigade commander, was killed, and bei

Jackson's two brigades on a commanding piece, Sixteenth United States infantry, Lieut. Colonel E. Bassett Langdon, Inspector-General; Capt. J. A. Campbell, Assistant Adjutant-General; Capt. W. T.

e day, and late in the evening formed a line of battle on line with the portion of the Seventeenth brigade on the left of the road. Their force was too small to oppose the advancing column of the enemy. They took shelter behind Clarke's house, but were forced to retire with the Seventeenth brigade, which was done in good order. They lost quite a number in wounded and missing. The conduct of the officers and men under the fire of the rebels was admirable. The Eighty-eighth Indiana, Col. Humphrey, was in the Seventeenth brigade, on the right. It was not under my eye, but I was informed, though a new regiment, behaved well. I have thus given a general statement of this battle and such incidents as occur to me. It was a hard and gallantly fought field, and the country is called upon to mourn the loss of many brave men who fell in it. My division fought it under many disadvantages. It was attacked on ground well known to the enemy, and fixed upon by him as the battle-field,

Abo their appearance on my left, and the enemy opened on him. I then advanced Captain Hescock's battery to a very good position in front of the belt of timber, where hereek; advancing at the same time six regiments to support him. The fire of Captain Hescock was here very severely felt by the enemy, who attempted to dislodge him by establishing a battery at short-range; but the firing of Hescock's battery was still so severe, and his shots so well directed and effective, as to force the enemy'try, leading their troops at all times. Neither can I speak too highly of Captains Hescock and Barnett, and the officers and men of their batteries. I respectfull

. It soon opened fire at long-range, no enemy then being visible, and the regiments belonging to the same brigade were placed in position in the rear and left of the battery, under the crest of the hill, as will be seen by the report of Lieut. E. E. Kennon, Assistant Adjutant-General, herewith submitted. Here I rejoined General Jackson; a few rounds having opened the enemy's batteries, a twelve-pounder shot came within a foot of anticipating the fatal stroke he received soon afterward. Rommanding the battery on the right, is, with his men, entitled to all praise for their steady fire, continued for three and a half hours. I cannot conceive a battery to be better served than his was. Too high praise cannot be given to Lieutenant E. E. Kennon, Acting Adjutant to the Thirty-fourth brigade, and to Lieutenant John Collins, of the Ninety-eighth Ohio, Aid to Col. Webster. It would be hard to conceive of two young officers performing their duties with more unflinching courage than
