rst brigade, which promptly advanced on its left, again advanced and charged the enemy. The enemy soon broke and fled in great disorder. We pursued them until darkness interposed, and we were ordered to a position in advance of the battle-field, where we slept on our arms. In the pursuit, this brigade captured a number of prisoners, among them Brigadier-General Prince, who was brought in by private John Booker, company I, Twenty-third Virginia regiment. He brought him to me; but as General Taliaferro was near, who was of superior rank, I ordered him to be taken to him, and to him he promptly surrendered. Just at the time the enemy broke, their cavalry charged us, but were received by a galling fire from this brigade. They broke, and were fired upon also by the First and Second, and General Branch's brigade, which had come up on our left, and fled with great precipitation and loss. I have to regret the loss of many brave and good officers and men. It will be hard to supply thei

been in position, when the line was halted and skirmishers thrown out in advance some two or three hundred yards ; remained there a short time, and fell back some two hundred yards, where we bivouacked for the night. While the skirmishers were out, they brought in a number of prisoners, and captured some horses, mules, &c. I take pleasure in commending the good order and conduct of the officers and men of this regiment, which was all that I could wish. I am under obligations to Captain Gibson, of company D, for his services, acting as Major on the day of the engagement, and rendered me good service. Lieutenant Kent Ewing, acting as Adjutant of this regiment, rendered efficient aid by his brave conduct and promptness in carrying out my orders. The following is the list of casualties: Company A. Privates S. S. Rider and E. S. Crockett, killed. Company C. Sergeant James P. Kelly, wounded-finger shot off; private William Boyd, wounded — end of thumb shot. Company D

rt-House, that the enemy was in possession of the town. Finding the main street filled with Federal cavalry, Colonel Jones boldly charged the head of the Federal column, whilst its flank was attacked by another portion of the regiment, under Major Marshall. Both attacks were successful, and the enemy was hastily driven from the town; but as our cavalry was vastly outnumbered, it was soon after forced to fall back, in consequence of the enemy's greatly superior force in front, and the fire fromthe engagement commenced, the enemy retired a short distance, and, about an hour afterward, retreated. Whilst Colonel Jones was gallantly leading his men in the charge, he received a sabre wound. I regret to say that, during the engagement, Major Marshall was captured. Having received information that only part of General Pope's army was at Culpeper Court-House, and hoping, through the blessing of Providence, to be able to defeat it before reenforcements should arrive there, Ewell's, Hill's

ted rapidly and in great confusion. Being on the extreme left of the brigade, we were the first to see the flank movement of the enemy, and by the rapid retreat were prevented from being surrounded. All the officers of the battalion strove most gallantly to hold the men to their position, and made the most heroic endeavors to rally them after they had broken. Failing in this, some of the officers and men joined in with the reserves, and took part in their successful advance. Second Lieutenant Alexander, company A, was disabled by a severe wound in the left thigh, about the time the battalion gave way. It may be proper to add that Lieutenant White, acting Aid-de-camp to Colonel Garnett, informed me, just as the enemy advanced from the woods, that the Tenth Virginia regiment occupied our left. Accompanying this you will please find a list of casualties. Respectfully, your obedient servant, John Seddon, Major, commanding First Virginia Battalion. Report of Lieutenant-Col

's and Fleet's batteries (the latter under command of Lieutenant Hardy) did heavy execution this day, and drove back severaltwo from Captain Fleet's, the latter under command of Lieutenant Hardy. These guns now were formed in echelon--Captain Pegram being in advance and to the right, next to him Lieutenant Hardy, while the guns from General Winder's division were farther to the left and something in advance of Lieutenant Hardy, giving an oblique fire across their front. At this moment the fire of canister from the guns of Captain Pegram and Lieutenant Hardy, supported by, I believe, the Thirteenth Virginia regd Captain Fleet's battery, the latter commanded by Lieutenant B. W. Hardy, were posted, as stated, about near the centre of e huudred and fifty yards of the enemy's skirmishers, Lieutenant Hardy being in front. These batteries were supported by e enemy's camp somewhat to their rear. Captains Pegram and Hardy inflicted great loss on the enemy on Saturday evening, and

Jackson came up, and, by his order, I changed front so as to incline to the right, and pushed on to a point some distance in advance of the battle-field, at which he had ordered me to halt. The battle having terminated in a complete rout of the enemy, my men slept on the ground they had so bravely won. My officers and men behaved finely, and I refrain from discriminations. Such was their steadiness, that I was able to preserve my line of battle, unbroken, throughout the day. Captain J. T. Hawks and Lieutenant J. A. Bryan, of my staff, were with me, and conducted themselves gallantly. Your obedient servant, L. O'B. Branch, Brigadier-General. Report of Brigadier-General Pender. headquarters Sixth brigade, Light division, August, 1862.

The entire brigade remained in line of battle until ordered back at or near ten o'clock A. M., tenth instant. The following companies were deployed as skirmishers, and behaved with that gallantry and coolness that entitle the officers and men to the highest praise, viz.: Company A, Captain Grigsby; company B, Captain Cumming, and company D, Captain Hodges, of the Ninth Louisiana regiment. The casualties of the brigade were twenty wounded and four killed. Deeply do I regret to state that the following named officers (and a few privates, who could not be detected) absented themselves without leave during that period of the engagement in which my command participated, viz.: First Lieutenant B.
