ement induced Gen. Lee to send four out of his eight divisions to the north side of the James River.—Ibid. In its bearings on the assault made after the explosion of the mine, had the latter been anything but the wretched failure that it was, the result might have been most happy. Hancock concludes his report of operations at Deep Bottom as follows: I continued holding the line during the 29th with the remaining divisions of my corps, Mott's division had been ordered to report to Gen. Ord, the day before. Barge's brigade of the Tenth Corps, This corps was now commanded by Gen. Birney, who had been promoted from the Second to that position, July 11. and Sheridan's cavalry. Having attracted to my front so large a portion of Lee's army, Lieut. Gen. Grant thought it a favorable time to assault at Petersburg, and I was therefore instructed to proceed to that place with the remainder of my command. Soon after dark on the 29th, . . . .

vided with water in camp. But our enjoyment of this luxury was short-lived, for in two days we were ordered out from our cool retreat to go, no one knew whither. Rumor sent us in various directions: a trip to the Shenandoah Valley looked the most plausible, for Gen. Lee, wishing to relieve the pressure upon him by our army, thought that by detaching a corps to menace Washington, the authorities of that city would be seized with such trepidation as would compel Grant to send a large part of Meade's army to protect it, and possibly would result in raising the siege of Petersburg. Life and Campaigns of IX. E. Lce, p. 544. McCabe. In accordance with this theory, about the 1st of July, he dispatched Gen. Early's corps in that direction, which resulted, as is well known, in exciting quite a commotion in the capital city, and Grant sent the Sixth Corps to meet the emergency. We were evidently not included in any party destined for detached service just then, and after moving up toward

w, and, thoroughly exhausted with our rapid march of twenty-five miles, lay down to get what rest we could before our services were sought for elsewhere. It was broad daylight when we awoke, but no fires were allowed, and breakfastless, as well as supperless, we moved out to take position. Our guns were placed in the edge of woods. The presence of the Clover Leaf Corps was a complete surprise to the enemy, who had, the day before, been confronting a part of the Nineteenth Corps under Gen. Foster, and had made one or two unsuccessful attempts to dislodge him. They did not suspect the vicinage of a body of troops which, when last heard from, was down at the other end of the line; consequently, when the skirmish line of Miles' brigade of Barlow's division was sent out, by a well-executed maneuver it captured a battery of four twenty-pounders, which had just gone into action, and was sending its compliments down into our neighborhood. Our piece horses were then detached to draw the

I withdrew the entire command from Deep Bottom, and reported . . . . at Petersburg, on the morning of the 30th, in time to witness the explosion of the Mine. The casualties of the corps in this movement were 192. Of these, 57 were missing. As we drew near Petersburg in the gray of morning, the rumbling sound of cannonading was perceptible. While recrossing the pontoon, D. W. Atkinson, a cannoneer, falling asleep walked off the bridge, providentially alighting in one of the boats. When we reached the Eighteenth Corps hospitals, on the City Point Railroad, distant two miles from the main lines, we went into park. From this position the roar of artillery was something tremendous. The Burnside Mine had been exploded, and now every gun and mortar that could be brought to bear was concentrated on the enemy's lines. A 15-inch mortar called the Dictator, whose carriage re
