es of many autumns. Broken trunks of trees are lodged upon them, and also earth washed from above, forming a soil in which grows many varieties of forest shrubs. Along the river is a footpath merely wide enough for a single person to walk, but which widens at the upper extremity of the bluff into a passable road. At this place the enemy drew up their artillery. The retreat was attempted at the opposite end by a mere bridal path, but the horses were all shot and the guns captured. The Potomac at this point is divided by an Island three-fourths of a mile in length and about six hundred yards in width.

In the middle of this clearing is
