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, . . . .

mained till the next day, when, leaving battery wagon, forge, and spare men behind, we marched through dense woods to a position quite near the railroad, to be in readiness for another attack which was expected. At night, as we were going into park, a second hard shower came on, drenching us to the skin. After it was over, a crowd of men, cannoneers and drivers, assembled under a tree, and woke the evening echoes in their attempts to drive away discomfort by singing with unusual unction, John Brown's Body, Marching Along, Rally 'round the Flag, and every other song of kindred character generally familiar; and the success manifestly rewarding these efforts clearly demonstrated how philosophical the martyrs were who sang while enduring tortures at the stake. But that is an all-wise provision of Providence which keeps the future a sealed book till, leaf by leaf, it becomes the present, for some of the voices that rang out clear and cheerful in the gloom of that Monday evening were hus

6th, definite orders were received to be in readiness for that event, and not long after 4 o'clock we started. Our march was rapid and unimpeded by wagon trains, and a regular ten minutes rest every hour seemed to indicate that there was a certain distance to be made in a given time. As our movement was well to the rear of the lines, and under cover of darkness in the main, its object was evidently intended as a surprise. We crossed the Appomattox and its contiguous swamps on a pon- Thomas Cusick toon bridge of eighty boats, laid at Point of Rocks, and when darkness came on, a line of fires, lighted by cavalry pickets, guided us along our route. By 2 o'clock A. M. (27th), the broad, placid waters of the James shone like silver at our feet. After some delay we crossed on a pontoon of thirty-two boats, muffled with reeds, and at 3.30 A. M. were at Deep Bottom, twelve miles from Richmond. We parked in a field of grass wet with dew, and, thoroughly exhausted with our rapid march

lowing up the advantage gained. But this they failed to do, for reasons of prudence, we judge, and withdrew as suddenly as they had appeared, taking with them four pieces of artillery, several stands of colors, and sixteen hundred prisoners. Swinton says twenty-five hundred. Lee, however, in his official report to the Rebel secretary of war, only claims that about sixteen hundred prisoners, four pieces of artillery, eight stands of colors, and a large number of small arms were captured. e operation was nearly completed, a part of Hill's corps (Mahone's division) penetrated the interval between the Second and Sixth corps, throwing the flanks of both into great confusion, especially that of the Second. Barlow's division [says Swinton] rolled up like a scroll, recoiled in disorder, losing 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 fl
