Colonel Forno, with four regiments of Hays's brigade and one of Lawton's, and one piece of artillery from D'Aquin's battery, was then ordered to the front to reconnoitre and destroy the bridge over Kettle Run, and tear up the track of the railroad. He found the enemy had brought up on a train of cars a body of infantry sufficient to fill nine cars; but, having doubtless discovered our force to be larger than was thought, was reembarking it. A few shots from the piece of artillery were fired at the train, and it made its way back again after receiving some damage. The Sixth Louisiana, under Colonel Strong, was left on picket two miles in front on the railroad, and the Eighth Louisiana was put

The defences of the Appomattox were also strengthened, and a movable car planned and ordered to prevent a landing at City Point.

A concentration of these troops at Weldon and Goldsboroa was ordered to prehe careful and successful execution of the parts assigned them. Colonels Manning and Daniel's brigades and Major Ross, of the Second Georgia battalion, at Ruffin's house, protected the whole of the attack.

The artillery of the enemy here opened on us across the stream, indicating that he had halted in his retreat, and intended to make a stand there. The brigade slept on their arms under the guns of the enemy; and the next morning we turned to the left, and proceeded up the river, crossing Hazel River at Wellford, and that night reached a point about opposite to the Fauquier White Sulphur Springs. Here we also found the enemy, who, having burnt the bridge, was again opposing the our passage. On Sunday, the twenty-fourth, the brigade was moved into position on the Rappahannock Hills, near the house of Dr. Scott, to support our artillery, which was engaged with that of the enemy across the stream.

Shortly after Brigadier-General Starke's arrival, we took up the line of march and continued it until we reached the ford on the Rappahannock, near Brandy Station, on or about the twenty-first August, at which period we found the enemy strongly posted on the opposite bank. On the morning of the twenty-second we resumed the march, and crossed the Rappahannock at Major's Mill, on Hazel Fork, on the twenty-fifth; passed through Thoroughfare Gap on the morning of the twenty-seventh, and reached Manassas the same day.

While engaged in making a reconnoissance, he received information that General Stuart, commanding the cavalry in rear, stood in need of support.
