Tou Bavo doubtless Long since been informed of the particulars of the Battles of West Point. Seven Pines Gaius s Mill Malvern Hill. A. After Liia last named Battle our brigade was brought up near Richmond Ybera it Lay recuperating from the fatigues of Tho Bard fought Battles for about four weeks. Our whole army was concentrated around Richmond watching Mcclellan s movements. In the meantime our glorious Jackson moved to i wards the apirian to Kupp an Eye on Pope Tho Man who was. Going to end the War in no time. Of the 10th of August our division consisting of whimsy s brigade find our own under the command of Gen Hood assisted by. Ii. Sellers who is one of the bravest men in the Aboav took up their line of March toward Hanover courthouse where we joined Longstreet army corps. Our whole army was then Pat in motion following no Pope who was continually changing Hie base. We successfully crossed the Rapidan and Bap Shanock the different com rounds Haling slight some slight skirmishes with the enemy. After successfully passing through Manas Sas Gap where the enemy had Strong fortifications we followed him beyond the vol luge called Haymarket near Bull inn where he took a stand. We took our position about 11 a. A on the 21st. Skirmishing and Cann Nading was kept up till nearly f. M when a Forward movement was ordered. Our brigade made a charge and bitterly run Over the 1-1th new 7. Zouave took a Battery of four guns but on account of the darkness had to Stop and Early next morning resumed to our original position. On the 30th the operation was repeated and we bad heavy Gnu Nading and skirmishing All Day. At midday we were informed by major Sellers that we would charge the whole line about 4 p. We were wailing patiently when suddenly we were startled by heavy musketry on our left. The enemy invade the attack. The sight was splendid a the enemy moved Forward with their extended line. Whitney s brigade received them and capt. Reiley a a. 0. Battery with its Well directed fire broke their lice when the order Forward was Given and the whole line was in motion our brigade gave one of the most unearthly yells and with fixed bayonets rusted Forward never firing the guns for nearly a mile and a half but driving the enemy before taking batteries at the Point of the Bayonet while exposed to the most furious Cross fires irom them. It was Asut line Abd exciting sight to s e their batteries flying Beffie us and getting into new positions their infantry forming set suffice it to aay that our. Victory was Complete. We drove the enemy for shout five Miles killing thousands and the old Field of Manassas was again strewed with he dead and wounded. The 3th trias was the principal sufferer in the fight. Oar Onward move from Here was not interrupted. We followed the enemy close on his heels till he took Protection behind Hie heavy guns at Alexandria who we changed our direction taking the Road toward Leesburg and successfully forded the Potomac and for the first time invaded country under Lia Eoin s control a a font mencs the offensive policy but How far we shall a successful it is not far me to surmise. Our whole army was in uary and the state of which so much was exp tested in my opinion very Little need be expected for a far As i have seen it is Union to the Backbone. Baltimore is doubtless the stronghold of accession. We marched through the towns of Frederick Middle tort Boonsboro and Funkstown and halted at Hagerstown which is five Miles from the Virginia line. In the meantime Jack von Sand p. H. Hill s corps after passing through Boonsboro kept to the left and went to Harper s ferry which place surrendered the them in the 14th with some 19,000 men an its immense supplies of Artay stores arms contraband horses wagons quartermaster s stores sea. On the 14th, heavy can Nading was Beard in our rear from the direction of Boonsboro. We took up our March for the scene of Youon at ones. The country is mountainous around Here and Well adopted to keep the enemy in Check and this duty we performed effectually while the male army kept on the read towards Sharpsburg. The morning of the 15th found end whole army concentrated near that place waiting the Advance of Thean my. The country around berets similar to that of Manassas rolling and Well adopted for Artel Lery. Our infantry was posted in the hollows Between the Hills and protected from the shells. The Battle of Sharpsburg commenced at noon on the 15th by the sudden booming of hundreds of Cannon their1 shells and shot blowing no the ground in All directions Only a Small Creek separating the two hostile armies. On the Leith at about s p. M., the enemy crossed the Creek on our left and our brigade was the first brought into not Iota we held our position Here till Midnight when we were relieved by  Lou a Briglda. Next moaning the Battle commenced Early. The Louisiana brigade engaged the enemy and we were ordered to its support. When we reached the Field we round the enemy strongly posted in a porn Field and our brigade was ordered to drive them out of it. We gave the usual yell and sprang Forward with a will. We drove the first line before As when we Caine upon the second behind a Stone Fence and two others behind them. They poured a murderous fire into our ranks. Here our loss was very severe. Out of 226 in eur regiment when we went in Only 4c came out and of the 35 in our company the Lone Star rifles of Galveston 24 were killed and wounded among the former our whole comp any feels the loss of our Brave and Noble first lieutenant j.

The premature so Vince of the army of the West now universalist Art matted to have been an error " was. By the Misiun snip of the president overruling the the general in chief. The consequence is that their Melato fruits of that mls directed Energy have bad squandered. The great and wealthy cities ont. Banks of the Ohio never before in danger Are now i a state of Active alarm and armies in the Southwest Are completely Cut off from supplies and Reuy for. Ments. In the East the strategy which overruns the Hoof the general in chief has been equally i. Trout. The president was hounded on to order premature Advance against Richmond and after the plan of my leading general had been assented to and was already in Progress of execution it was abruptly interfered with and a portion of the troops with held which were deemed essential to its Success the reason for this interference was the apprehension of danger to the National Capitol but in Point of fee Washington has never been so Little exposed of rebel attacks As while general Mcclellan s aun Yassu the Peninsula. Alter the terrible seven Days ought lug before Richmond had compelled general Colet. Lan to make a change of base an Active and vigorous but Gasc Nading and superlatively imprudent Gen ral was summoned from the West to take commas of the army or Virginia and make a separate Advance on Richmond. His very remarkable address to his army on assuming command disclosed both his  omani us Lack of circumspection and the ideas of Gen eral Mcclellan s strategy with which he had been in at the War department. A Nice tense of propriety would have been satisfied with acting of Euch Wollons trusting to results to vindicate their Justice without putting them in such a form that Al most every sentence was an obvious.,and intended fling at the More cautious and strategy of the Lato general in chief of the army. As this address contains the Pithie at statement to be Fauna in any Publio document of the Radical strategy a opposed to that of general Mcclelian we insert some of its most significant declarations. Our res de scan judge of their soundness by seeing Bow they look when brought face to face with Theip Ripe. De fruits. "1 am sure you Long for an Opportunity to win the distinction you Are capable of achieving. This Opportunity 1 shall Endeavor to give Yoa. Meantime i desire you to dismiss from your minds certain phrases which i am sorry to find much fat Vogue among you. I hear constantly of taking Strong petitions Tot holding then of lines of Retreat and of basis of supplies. Let us discard such ideas.
