Adjutant-General Hartsuff now got McMullen's howitzer battery into position, and it began plae back, and, by order of the General, sent forward McMullen's howitzers and Snyder's two field-pieces, which pis family. Snyder's two rifled six-pounders and McMullen's batteries were planted in the road about two hunquently part of each was removed to the right. Capt. McMullen was finally struck down, but not seriously hurt
llantry; and Captain Schneider, of the rifled artillery, a very gallant and deserving officer, was most prompt and successful in the management of his guns. Captain McMullen, though his howitzers were not brought into play in action, was prompt and ready at every point on the march, as he is ever at every call of duty; and Lieut.ite500 10th Ohio, Col.

During our sojourn at this point, our force was joined by McMullen's battery, or, as it is more vulgarly termed, the Ass battery, and, together with the seventh, Thirty-seventh, and Forty-fourth regiments O. v.

of company A, of the Twelfth, Captain Wilson. He was struck on the head with a ball from a twelve pound spherical case-shot, killing him almost immediately. The firing of the rebels was rapid, and, as a general thing, wild. One section of Captain McMullen's battery, which was stationed in the outside redan, compelled the rebels to move their artillery nine times during the afternoon, and disabled one piece. The firing was kept up until night, when both sides ceased, and the troops rested on s command here, asked for permission to follow, which was granted, but not until late in the evening, when the enemy had got a good start; but, thinking that he might overtake them, he started, after dark, with about two thousand men and part of McMullen's battery, and after pursuing them a distance of twenty-five miles, gave up the chase as hopeless, and returned to his camp with as dusty a crowd of boys as ever any one witnessed. Our total loss was fourteen killed, wounded, and missing, in
e Second brigade is sent, while the Thirty-sixth Ohio is placed on the main road to occupy the rebels there. As the Thirty-sixth drew near the banks, a rebel shell was sent so exactly in range of their position as to wound six and kill one. Captain McMullen was ordered up with one section of artillery, and proceeded at once most effectually to silence the rebels. Some of them were on top of the Virginia Military Institute, but a few shells quickly drove them from their high position, and aboutrning. Attempts had been made to induce General Crook to place his batteries in the same position in our columns, but he steadily refused, and the good results of his persistence became evident on Tuesday, when a similar attack was made upon Captain McMullen's battery, when the rebels were driven off, with a number killed and wounded. On the evening of the twenty-first, General Crook, growing tired of the incessant skirmishing in our rear, determined to give the rebels a lesson, and, conceali

y of the Northern idea since 1787. See Sumner's letter to a Massachusetts committee, February 25 (Works, vol. IV. p. 96), expressing a similar idea. While the election was pending, slavery was an ever-recurring topic of desultory discussion in the House, which chiefly, however, related to the party relations of members, and particularly of the candidates. Less bitterness was exhibited than might have been expected under the circumstances, There were some exceptions to this statement. McMullen, December 21. called Giddings that contemptible member of the House. Edmundson, January 18, advanced towards Giddings, shouting, Say that again! But the old man was unmoved and defiant.

(845) General Baker's report of operations, including battles of Rocky Face, Resaca and New Hope Church, May 7 to June 2, 1864, says: We have to mourn the loss, in this sanguinary conflict, of many brave men, among whom was First Lieut. Garrett L. Young, commanding Company C, Fifty-fourth Alabama, who fell within a short distance of the enemy's intrenchments, gallantly leading his command. Nor can I forbear to allude to the heroic death of the Rev. J. P McMullen, a missionary to this brigade, an aged Presbyterian clergyman of spotless and exalted character, who, having been to our soldiers the preceptor and example of all that is admirable in the Christian, won upon this bloody field the crowning honor with which the martyr patriot alone is worthy to be wreathed. (852-854) Report of Col. J. A. Minter, May 15th, 5 killed and 20 wounded; May 24th, 1 wounded; May 25th, 3 killed and 18 wounded; May 30th, 4 killed and 10 wounded. In the fatiguing march<
the train ran into the forward troop train, damaging both engines, breaking several cars, killing three of the South Carolina volunteers and dangerously injuring several others. It is rumored that the soldiers were very much exasperated against the engineer and conductor of the Mail train, and threatened to shoot them. The unfortunate affair is due to carelessness somewhere. The instructions of Superintendent Dodamead to the conductors and others along the whole route, if strictly followed by them, would render impossible any such deplorable occurrence as the above. A dispatch received yesterday from Gordonsville says that several of those injured by the collision yesterday, are reported as since dead, and adds: "The Richmond train, with troops, seems to have been in fault in leaving the station before the Manassa train arrived. The names of the Virginians killed are Gentry and McMullen, of Greene county. One of the Carolinians has had his legs amputated below the knee."
ated they burned a bridge crossing a creek between Williamsport and Falling Waters, in Virginia. The bridge at Sheppardstown, across the Potomac at that point, is mined, and ready to be blown up. Twenty-five Union men reached Williamsport last night, having been driven out of Virginia. The troops will make a forward movement very soon. Brigadier General Thomas, of the regular army, has arrived, and will lead the advance brigade. The first movement will be made direct to Hagerstown. McMullen's Rangers have been assigned to lead the forlorn hope, supported by the Scott Legion.--The latter regiment is attached to General Thomas' brigade. News received from Sharpsburg, Maryland, by a person arrived here, states that the Virginians have sent over 500 sick back to Winchester, the prevailing disease being smallpox and diarchies The general belief is that Harper's Ferry will be evacuated.

Four brigades (sixteen regiments) will be at Chambersburg by the close of the week.-- Col. Ballier's rifle regiment, McMullen's company of desperate roughs, the Scott Legion, and the Philadelphia City Troop are among them. The artillery will all be regulars. three battalions of that arm are under orders, and of these the chief is the Fort Sumter garrison. Gen. Pm Washington; leaving Gen. Butler for the seaboard. Gen. Scott is either to force the Confederates to concentrate at Richmond, and risk a battle there, or to cut them off in detail, and thus render the capture of the main point more easy. McMullen's men, it is said, will lead the forlorn hope at Harper's Ferry, supported by the Scott Legion. Brigadier General Thomas is spoken of as having been fixed upon to command the advance brigade. He is a skillful officer, and was lately Colonel of
Suicide of a policeman. --Policeman McMullen hanged himself in New Orleans on the 26th ultimo. He had been principal witness against a convicted murderer, who, when asked by the Judge why sentence of death should not be passed upon him, proclaimed his innocence, and in strong language, though decorous to the Court, anathemad throwing the penalties upon others. The circumstance and coincidence gave rise to numerous rumors in the community, the most generally received one being that McMullen hung himself through remorse, in having convicted a man of murder by false evidence.--Another was, that McMullen had himself committed the murder for which anoths.
