, Jackson had about 80,000 men to take into account (including all Union forces north of the Rappahannock and east of the Ohio) and to keep from a junction with McClellan in front of Richmond. Not less than 65,000 This seems to us an overestimate of the Union forces actually in the Valley during the operations of May and June. April 30th, Banks had 9178 present for duty ; May 31st, Fremont had 14,672 (Cox and Kelley not in the Valley); McDowell's force that reached the Valley (including Shield's division, which on May 31st numbered 10,203), aggregated about 21,000. To tal, 44,840. Saxton had about 7000 at Harper's Ferry, which were not engaged.--Editors. of these enemies were in the Valley under their various commanders in May and June [see p. 299]. Besides Ewell's division already mentioned, General Johnston could give no further assistance to Jackson, for McClellan was right in his front with superior numbers, and menacing the capital of the Confederacy with almost immediat

Lieutenant Hall, in command of second piece Nim's battery, wishes special mention made of the successful rally by men of the Twenty-first Indiana and three men of the Ninth Connecticut, who, with the assistance of private Tyler, who left his sick-bed and acted as sergeant, gunner, etc., and privates Shield and Clogston, as also Sergeant Cheever, who left the hospital sick to do his duty, rallied and brought off the gun, when every man and horse was shot down and the piece in the hands of the enemy. The names of the privates of infantry engaged in this gallant exploit will be forwarded as soon as ascertained. The Ninth Connecticut and Fourth Wisconsin volunteers were brought up from their position early in the action, and were placed, by General Williams's order, in line across the groun

ne of march. The advance under Shelby met them at 2 P. M., and a battle immediately ensued. For a time the Federals fought well and resisted strenuously, but finally giving way, they were pressed by our troops, driven well past Lexington, and pursued on the road to Independence until night. That night the enemy evacuated Lexington in great haste and confusion. Shelby's old brigade, under Brigadier-General M. Jeff. Thompson, bivouacked that night in the suburbs of town. I encamped at General Shield's, three miles south of Lexington, marching that day twenty-six miles. On the morning of the 20th I moved west, in the same direction as before, to Five Creek prairie, twenty-two miles, where I encamped: Information was received that the enemy had fallen back to the Little Blue. On the 21st I resumed my line of march to the Little Blue on the Independence road — Marmaduke's division in the front, whose advance soon came upon the enemy's pickets, who, being driven across the Blue, burne

ng, at ten o'clock, Col. Anthony, with one hundred and fifty men, was attacked on an open prairie, about ten miles from this place, by six hundred rebels, under the command of. Upton Hayes, and after a desperate struggle the rebels retreated, seeking shelter in the woods, from which they were again routed. Col. Anthony then fell back about six miles to await reinforcements, which will speedily be forwarded to him. This is supposed to be the same hand of rebels that captured a part of Col. Shield's company of Premont Hunssars near Little Santa Fe. It is said that there are upwards of one thousand armed rebels in this county. Arrest for treason in Baltimore — Seizure of valuable arms. Baltimore, Nov. 11. --The Superintendent of the Government detective police, assisted by detective Benj.

As before said, two regiments of Ronham's brigade, 2d and 8th South Carolina volunteers, and Kemper's battery, took a distinguished part in the battle. The remainder, 3d Williams's, 7th Bacon's South Carolina volunteers; 11th (Kirkland's) North Carolina regiment; six companies 8th Louisiana volunteers; Shield's battery, and one section of Walton's battery, under Lieutenant Garnett, whether in holding their post or taking up the pursuit officers and men discharged their duty with credit and promise. Longstreet's brigade, pursuant to orders, prescribing his part of the operations of the centre and right wing was thrown across Bull Run early in the morning, and under a severe fire of artillery, was skillfully disposed for the assault of the enemy's batteries in that quarter, but were withdrawn
