Mechanicville (Louisiana, United States) (search for this): article 1
arrival of U. S. artillery, no relief came, and they laudably imitated the race of their friends on Friday last. The artillery of the enemy, though admirably worked and served when not face to face with ours is handled with uncommon willness and imprecision when any of our batteries appear to dispute the ground. Hence little damage is usually done, and the cost or results is merely a useless expenditure of powder. Brisk artillery fire was maintained by the foe upon our outposts on the Mechanicville road yesterday, but, although the range of some half dozen shells was determined with great mathematical nicety, a few fell harmlessly, unexploded, while the fragment of another slightly wounded a negro employed upon some one of our works. Two shells damaged one of our breast works slightly, but more than this no damage was done in this quarter. Dense columns of smoke were ascending over the enemy's position yesterday — various reasons when assigned for this unusual spectacle, but

ave our men proved themselves superior to the foe — the artillery have amused themselves greatly, and practiced with much accuracy and effect upon the numerous breast, field, and born works thrown up on the Federal front. Since Capt. Dabney's efforts on Friday last, with heavy pieces, which caused a indecorous stampede from Federate artillery and infantry camps it was surmised that their obnoxious presence would no longer disgrace the lovely face of the landscape on the north bank of the Chickahominy yet, numerous and impudent as ever, they again appeared in working parties on Saturday and Monday, presenting fair scope and practice for some artillerists, who, moving deliberately to the front, near Garnett's farm, shelled the enemy from their excavations, and expedited their departure from the knolls and woods with much effect. Shell from our pieces could be plainly seen bursting among the enemy, and although they bravely withstood our for some short time, expecting the arrival of U.

Yorktown Lines (search for this): article 1
he enemy is worthy of comment and punishment. If the topography of the place is not known to officers encamped within gunshot, for weeks together, and useless mortality ensue from want of this requisite information, how can it be expected that these came officers will successfully handle or manœuvre forces — If only companies — on these same grounds, should exigencies require it at any moment of night or day ? It is time such negligence should cease. Our loss was more than necessary at Yorktown Lines, from this same cause.--Lives are too precious to be uselessly sacrificed in this manner, and any mal-administration of officers should be severely punished. Indications of activity and liveliness prevail in all our camps — bustle, good humor, and buoyancy it seen in every action, and marked on every feature — orderlies dash to and fro: solemn and dusty Colonels, and others, are all found at their posts, and while all is industry beyond the city, what a reproach is this to the tin
