A part of the Thirty-seventh Virginia,but will long be remembered by all associated with him in the cause of liberty. Colonel Williams, of the Thirty-seventh Virginia regiment, was slightly, and Colonel Sheffield, of the Forty-eighth Alabama regiment, was painfully wounded. Both these officers behaved with great gallantry. All the officers and men of this brigade be

ood on the opposite side of the run. At this time we had gotten to the right of the wood. Here we received orders to halt and remain until late, when we were ordered to the road to follow in the pursuit. My loss in killed was only two; in wounded, eleven; and in missing, two--making a total of fifteen. The officers and men behaved well. Lieutenant-Colonel Gray and Major Cole, Twenty-second, and Captain Ashford, Thirty-eighth, handled their men skilfully, showing great coolness. Captain Ashe, my Assistant Adjutant-General, deserves notice for his conduct, being found at every point almost at the same time, directing the men. Lieutenant Young, my Aid-de-camp, acted with his usual efficiency. Language cannot express the appreciation I have for his services in action. Very respectfully, W. D. Pender.

Lee, the Twenty-seventh by Captain Charles L. Haynes. Captains Carpenter's and Poague's batteries are attached. The brigade bivouacked, on the night of hot pursuit of the enemy till after dark, when, reaching the top of a hill in a cornfield, he was ordered to halt, and remained until morning. I joined in with Colonel Lee, of the Thirty-third, and advanced, overtaking the Second and Fourth, who had halted in a cornfield, on the right of the main road leading to Culpeper Court-Houunded slightly. Three killed, and one wounded. Very respectfully, C. L. Haynes, Captain, commanding Twenty-seventh Virginia Regiment.

A. G.; Lieutenant Dabney, A. D. C., and Lieutenant White, A. D. C. The Third brigade, Colonel A. G. Taliaferro, Twenty-third Virginia, commanding, was conducted into action by that officee while engaged in front, were also attacked in rear, now that the left flank was turned, producing much disorder in their ranks. In this double fire, front and rear, fell the gallant officers, Lieutenant-Colonel Cunningham, Major Layne, and Captain Dyerle. Reenforcements coming up, portions of different regiments were re-formed and assisted in driving the enemy, discomfited, from the field. The terrible loss in this brigade resulted from its left flank being turned, thereby subjecting it to
val of General Sigel's force on the field. This intelligence was at once sent to the rear. The fierce cannonade, probably from the guns of this command, newly arrived, swept the ground immediately in our rear, and compelled us to seek the shelter of a friendly hill, until they had sufficiently amused themselves. The result of our advance was eleven privates, three Lieutenants, and one negro captured from the enemy. My thanks are due to Mr. Thomas Richards, independent scout, and to Lieutenant McCarty, acting Adjutant of the regiment, for their activity, zeal, and courage displayed on this occasion. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, W. E. Jones, Colonel Seventh Virginia Cavalry. Report of Major wood. camp near Gordonsville, Virginia, August 13, 1862. To Colonel A. G. Taliaferro, commanding Third Brigade: In making my report of the part acted by the Thirty-seventh regiment in the action on Cedar Creek, on the ninth instant, it is necessary for me to state t
d a ridge to the right of the road. A battery, under Lieutenant Terry, opened upon the cavalry, which soon forced it to retLatimer's battery, with a section of Johnson's, under Lieutenant Terry, which opened, with marked effect, on the enemy, drawng on, two pieces of Captain Johnson's battery, under Lieutenant Terry, which had been carried to the right, near the foot oMajors's house. Captain Latimer, with three guns, and Lieutenant Terry, with Captain Johnson's (Bedford) battery, were statiaken and held by them till dark. Captain Latimer and Lieutenant Terry continuing their fire from the mountain, I ordered Caunately, lasting just till then. Captain Latimer and Lieutenant Terry kept their position on the mountain during the fight,r place; but these did not fire. Captain Latimer and Lieutenant Terry, about the same time, (the enemy being drawn back, boof men determined to be free.

Captain Caskie was wounded. Captain Wooding's battery was not engaged; he himself acted for a time with the General commanding. I have the honor to enclose herewith the reports of brigade, regimental, and battery commanders, to which the Major-General is referred for more minute details, and a list of killed and wounded of the division. No one can estimate the loss this brigade and this division of the army has sustained in the early death of Brigadier-General Winder. He was warmly beloved by all who knew him as a man, and h
