he 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.

to be open to a surprise. To accomplish this end, we gather from Hancock's report, the latter was instructed to take and hold a position nehed failure that it was, the result might have been most happy. Hancock concludes his report of operations at Deep Bottom as follows: it was said. Appended are the notes made by the author from General Hancock's Report of Operations North of the James River, from Aug. 12 regg's division of cavalry and Birney's Tenth Corps were placed at Hancock's disposal. The movement was intended to be a surprise, but faileow is commented upon unfavorably for their lack of steadiness, and Hancock attributes their lack of cohesion to the large number of new men i although we knew that the infantry had embarked. The synopsis of Hancock's Report of Operations, appended, sufficiently indicates the causenow distant but three miles from the Weldon Railroad.

ard the left wing of the corps, so as to envelop the right flank of the enemy. This movement was making by the divisions of Mott and Barlow, who were pivoting on Gibbon's Division, which held the right. Just as the operation was nearly completed, a part of Hill's corps (Mahone's division) penetrated the interval between the Seco several hundred prisoners. Mott on his right fell back, but not without a like loss, and the enemy still pressing diagonally across the front of the corps struck Gibbon's now exposed left flank and rear, swept off and captured several entire regiments and a battery, and carried Gibbon's intrenchments. The shattered corps was re-Gibbon's intrenchments. The shattered corps was re-formed on its original line when the enemy made a brisk attack on Miles' brigade, but was easily repulsed. An effort was made to retake the captured guns, but it was responded to feebly by the troops, for the Second Corps had literally been charged to death. It had borne the brunt of the campaign since its inception at the Wil
