ded and missing, which included seven commissioned officers. After the regiment had joined the brigade, we marched with the brigade under your command, to the Chancellor House. I don't think it necessary to say any thing about the further movements of the regiment, as they have been made under your personal command and observations, the regiment not leaving the brigade on any detached duty. I only beg leave to say, as I personally have not been in action, being at the time sick at Chicago, Illinois, I had to make this report according to the statements I solicited from the officers of my regiment. Their statements varied in several points, but I have endeavored to make the report as correct as possible. I am, sir, very respectfully, your most obedient servant, Edward Salomon, Lieutenant-Colonel Commanding Eighty-Second Illinois Volunteers.

still occupying the same ground, near the tavern, and defending this position with great firmness and gallantry ; the fourth regiment (the Twenty-ninth regiment New-York volunteers) he had sent to the north side of the road, to fill the place lately occupied by the Second brigade, before its detachment. The attack of the enemy wd and wounded four hundred and ninety-four men and two officers; among the latter, three regimental commanders, Col. Jones, One Hundred and Fifty-fourth regiment New-York volunteers; Lieut.-Col. Hartmann, Twenty-ninth regiment New-York volunteers; and Lieut.-Col. Moore, of Third Pennsylvania volunteers. Col. Buschbeck lost two New-York volunteers; and Lieut.-Col. Moore, of Third Pennsylvania volunteers. Col. Buschbeck lost two aids, Capt. Bode, seriously wounded, and Lieut. Grimm, both probably in the hands of the enemy. I must speak in high terms of Col. Adolph Buschbeck for his gallantry and determination, and for the complete control he retained over his command during the whole time of the engagement; also, of his Acting Assistant Adjutant-General,

is sundown. A critical moment in the history of this nation. It is not a Bull Run stampede, with no enemy in pursuit; not the close of a hard-fought battle, but the beginning of one, with a fierce, exultant, determined host advancing. The river roaring in its might, just bursting through the breach, must be dammed in an instant. The flood must be stopped at once or all is lost. There has been no moment like it during the war. It was a critical hour — that sunset hour on Sunday at Pittsburgh Landing, but there the torrent had been stemmed all through the day. It was an eventful moment at Malvern Hills, when Magruder led up his whisky-maddened men to that terrible artillery fire of our forces; but that was the last spasm of a foe exhausted by seven days fighting. But here, at this moment, in this wood, this clearing, may have been the turning-point of the destiny of this nation, the welfare of the human race for all coming time. Now is the hour for the stringing of the nerves, th

early at an end. Such was the talk — the feeling. All is now changed. The army is back in its camp. The victory that was to be is not. It will be my endeavor to present a condensed review of the two armies, commencing with last Saturday, sifting, with what ability I may have, the true from the false, using official information. Saturday Morning.--The single house which makes Chancellorsville is at a crossing of roads at the intersection of the Gordonsville plank-road and the old Orange county turnpike. Standing on the piazza and looking south, you look directly down the old turnpike road to Scott's Run. As you face south, the Rappahannock is at your back. It is five miles to United States Ford. In front of the house and west of it, along the plank-road, is a small field; all the rest is woods. In this field is an immense train of artillery, ammunition-wagons, cavalry, ambulances, supplies, hospitals, and troops. Here are General Hooker's headquarters — the grand centre

now, every one of them. Ought he not to bring Meade and Reynolds up, to swing them round upon Jackson's flank, as if the V were hinged at the Chancellor House? Decisions must be made at once. He The morale of his army is excellent. The fact that five divisions withstood the onset of all Jackson's forces and two divisions of Longstreet's, as we are informed by Richmond papers, has inspiredwever, at once sent for, and on his arrival upon the field, assumed control of the movements of Jackson's corps--General A. P. Hill still, however, remaining near the field, and advising in all the ih to blot. His example, let us hope and believe, will survive him, and in the coming fight let Jackson's men show to the world that a dead Jackson shall win the field. Who his successor will be, time alone can develop. It may not be out of place to indulge a hope that Jackson's wishes in regard to his successor shall be respected, if, indeed, it be true that he expressed a preference. To

amped for two nights, Colonel McKnight holding an informal regimental muster on the thirtieth day of April. May first we took up the line of march about two o'clock P. M. for the right, and halted within a short distance of United States Ford at twelve, midnight. Soon after daylight, May second, we moved forward and crossed the Rappahannock at United States Ford about noon, when we received orders for picket-duty, and moved to a field near Chancellorsville tavern, on the plank-road to Orange Court-House. At five o'clock, our orders being countermanded, we moved forward in line of battle near the Chancellorsville brick mansion, our batteries at that point having been attacked, where we received a heavy artillery fire, and remained there until daylight, the brigade at that time being moved to the centre, where we were deployed as skirmishers, and remained until after noon, when we were ordered to join the reconnoissance; this we did and returned about nine P. M., and lay down that nigh

lain in battle might be replaced, but if General Lee should fall, who could take his place? Echo answers who! I have passed over the whole battle-ground since the fight. It reached from Deep Run — indeed, it may be said to extend from Hamilton's Crossing, five miles below Fredericksburgh, where the artillery duelling between our batteries and those of the enemy first occurred — up to Fredericksburgh, and from the town up as far as Wilderness, fifteen miles above. The country above where tseems to have been to ditch to Richmond. His idea was to fortify himself in a position somewhat in the form of a square at Chancellorsville, whilst Sedgwick crossed below at Fredericksburgh, turned our right wing and seized the railway at Hamilton's Crossing. Stoneman's part in the programme meantime, was evidently to create a panic, if possible, in our rear, cut the railway communication, and so cripple Lee for supplies as to secure for Hooker a bloodless victory.

carried away the bridges, and it was three A. M. before the Eleventh corps started. The Eleventh was the last to leave its position. The Fifth was drawn up at the bridge-head, to repel any attack while the other troops were crossing. A kind Providence prevented any disaster. In fact,it is thought that the rebels retreated the same night. I will not here discuss the wisdom of these proceedings. I trust we shall soon be in motion again, and toward the rebel army, and that the Eleventh corpsthe South had passed from earth away. Of Jackson it may be said what can be affirmed of but few men that have lived in this great struggle, that he has fulfilled a great purpose in history, wrought out the mission for which he was ordered of Providence, and that, dying, he has left no stain which, living, he would wish to blot. His example, let us hope and believe, will survive him, and in the coming fight let Jackson's men show to the world that a dead Jackson shall win the field. Who hi

ur through the woods, down the hill, like a stream of lava. Jackson has determined to crush Hooker with one grand, staggering blow; to fall like a thunderbolt upon his extreme right. He commences with Schurz, who is in flank to the advancing force, thus: Zzz General Sickles, seeing the disaster, hastened to avert it. The fleeing artillery was thundering down the narrow road. Half-way back to Chancellorsville, at the entrance to the cleared field, was a stone wall, extending from Scott's Creek up to the woods. There was the place to stop the stampede. He reached the gateway. With pistol and sword he stopped the foremost piece of artillery. The others came crowding on, the drivers in a fever-heat of panic; but they were blocked. Officers rallied them, and their courage began to return, and notwithstanding the infantry was tumbling headlong over the wall, and fleeing through the woods, the artillery recovered its senses. Pleasanton, with his cavalry, was in the field. L

Doc. 183.-battle of Chancellorsville. Report of Brig.-Gen. Steinwehr. headquarters Second division, Eleventh corps, Stevens's farm, Va., May 8, 1863. To Lieutenant-Colonel Meurenburg, Assistant Adjutant-General, Eleventh Corps: Colonel: I have the honor to forward the following report of the part taken by my division in the action on the evening of the second of May: On the thirtieth ultimo we arrived near Dowdell's tavern, about two miles west of Chancellorsville. This tavern is situated on the plank-road, which runs in an easterly direction toward Chancellorsville and Fredericksburgh. It is surrounded by undulating fields, which are seamed on three sides by heavy timber, but slope down at the west side toward open ground traversed by a small brook. Upon these fields you ordered me to take position. I directed the First brigade, Col. Buschbeck, to occupy the fields south of the road, and the Second brigade, Gen. Francis Barlow, those north of it. My division w
