of a'one hundred cavalry 'were foraging

fou " " of his line; he detertained to capture

Sec a quantity of forage Waging to some
no rebels at Drainesville: '''
O . . Friday night he ordered out General Ord's
Brigade, with one day's rations, to, start at day
light. He also took Bastion's battery and four
squadrons of cavalry and' forty-five wagons, in
charge of Capt. Hall. He started them on
-with instructions to secure the forage, and after
they left he heard that there were some Rebels
near Hemdon's Station, on the railroad, who
might give then; trouble, and knowing General
Ord's disposition for fighting so Well, he ordered
out General Reynolds' Brigade as a reserve, on
the turnpike and with his stall' galloped on to
In the' eantime, General Ord had marched
to Drtlinesville, and with his troops in the fol
lowintf order :—Advance guard, Kane Rifles,
Ettstdirs - battery, four" squadrons of the First
reauttfirichin Cavalry, with the Tenth, Sixth
and 'Vweifth Regiments. The regiments were
about 'onehundred rods apart, and as the skir
raishen3 of the Ninth were scouring the woods
this side of Drainesville, as their regiment was
enteng the village they found the Rebels se
cretedOn the woods. Loose firing at once com
e:leaned- agovae.now about half-past one, P. a.
Gem Ord,,winwas in advance, at once rode
to the, spot where' the firing commenced, and
drew up tkia troops inline of battle. Easton's
hatter, ,took up their position in front of
Thongs nom, and Companies A and N of the
Bane Rbles.were deployed down the road run
ning,to,Centreville. When about five hundred
yards down'seven squadrons of Stuart's caval
ry gallope4 from one field to another, in front,
as thorigh,they were.retreating, fearing we were
cominiptiown on them in force. .
The Allies halted for fear of being entrapped,
When Wag went a cannon in front, mot a hun
dred. yards off. and a shot from a . rified cannon
wodinver their heads, and took the,top off a
hbusewhere Easton's battery was boosted. The
Rifles dropped down on their faces, and the
entuoi4 xiilemen opened a volley- upon them.
They fe back, and were reinforced , by other of
their • ,1 and then--ethisnxl a firing'
'Wherever they could see :a chance.
Easton now opened on them with three guns
—twenty-four and one twelve—sending his
other round to the Hill, to keep them from out
flan,king them. Their six guns were now pour
ing out incessant fire and the Sixth Regiment
on his, right were firing rapidly at the edge of
' the woods, where the rebels were concealed in
thick gines. The rebel cannon shot nearly all
went over their heads.
When the position of the rebel battery was
found out pretty certain, Easton let drive, and
his, third shell exploded in the caisson of the
rebels, which went off with a terrible noise.—
Just then Gen. McCall and his. staff rode up,
and he took command. He complimented Gen.
On' on the disposition of the forces, and then
proceeded to give orders.
One of the regiments was disposed to fall
back.out of the field in which they had been
placed to get under cover, ala rebels. General
McCall rode up, flourishing his sword, and cried
out to them to " Forward, boys ! stand your
ground," The rebels now saw-their chance,
and down from, the extreme left came a regi
ment in light blue overcoats, with the Stars
and Stripes waving over them.
One of their officers cried out, "Do, not shoot,
we.are Bucktails." Our men oonsequenty re
served their fire, until one of the officers cried
out, "it's a lie, give them h-1, boys." Before
the word died away, however, the rebels fired
and started for cover. Our troops gave them a
volly with fearful effect, their balls nearly all
passed over the heads of our men.
The artillery were now throwing their shells
into the woods. The rebels had ceased firing
from their battery, and were trying to get their
men to make a charge, but without success.—
The hail of lead that now rained was terrible.
"Charge bayonets on 'em boys!" cried General
McCall, and his aids galloped around with or
ders to move onward;
The General, Ord, and his aids, were at the
head of his column, and charged in the follow

On they went, plunged into the woods, and
the rebels fled. They fired as fast as they could
load, and in forty-five minutes from the time
the rebels opened fire on us they were in full re
treat. Down wen4tins, rifles, overcoats, and
everything else that would encounter their run
The woods presented a fearful spectacle, the
dead, and dying lying in heaps, and mangled
bodies of horses being side by .side with their
riders. Near the ruins of the battery were
seven horses and thirteen men piled up together.
The groans of dying men and shriekti of the
wounded were fearful and terrific. Blended
with them were the shouts of our victorious sol
diers. The men stopped to select some trophies,
including swords, officers' cape, belts, money,
General McCall determined to keep up the
retreat and followed the enemy for a mile with
parts of the two regiments, including in all
about seventeen hundred men. In the road
and fields were wagon loads of clothes and
The rout of the enemy was total and com
plete, and was more disastrous and disgraceful
to them than any that we have known in the
Two officers were selected to count the' dead
bodies of the rebels lying in their tracks. The
principal portion of the killed were around the
position of their battery and in the route of
their retreat, they being being shot in the back.
One officer counted over a hundred dead
bodies. All their wounded who could walk or
run got away, as well as most of their wound
ed in the early part of the fight.
The distance between, the two batteries was
About six hundred yaids. The llebels lost nine
horses from their battery. Captain Easton fired,
in the very short time during which the engage
ment continued, nearly two hundred shell, and
only had thirty-six men to man , his guns , not
one of whom was lost His horses stood fire
with as much composure as, though they had
been old veterans. •
The Rebel forces consisted '"of seven compa
nies of Stnarrs Cavalry ; 'Cutt's Battery of four
guns; Tenth Alabama, Colonel J. H. Forney ;
First Kentucky, Colonel Taylor, (killed)—seven
hundred—the Sixth South Carolina and one
North Carolina Regiment. The South Carolina
Regiment has been at a station on the Leesburg
Railroad for a day or two. It was them who

not having horses to bring them in, had to cut
them up with axes. The boxes.were, however,
brhught away by Captain Easton, , who now has
them in camp. We, learn frontline of the rebel
prisoners that the battery Was Captain Cutts'
Georgia battery, and that they had one sixteen
pounder Parrott and.three twenty-four pound
The Kentucky men say 'that
ere is much
dissatisfaction in their 'regiment, and declare
that they want to go home at the earliest mo
ment. They say, that theirs is the.only regi
ment from Kentucky in the army of the Poto
mac. They left Centreville about three A.'M.
on Friday morning with the Alabama battery,
cavalry, and one other regiment in the rear.
Au officer stated that Gen. Johnston had left
Centreville with ten thousand men, and come
on four miles, where he waited to hear the re
sult. These men were'but ten miles off during
Kastou's battery was, raised about Chambers
burg, by Captain Charles Campbell, who was
afterwards chosen Colonel, and they deserve
great praise for the cool and unflinching manner
in Which they fired, andfor the deadly aim with
which each each piece was fired.
This was merely a small expedition of Gen.
McCall's, sent out without 'the knowledge of
Gen. .11'cOlellart. When he heard of it, lie
rode over to Miner's Hill, and got a large force
under marching orders. Gen. Hancock's bri
gade was ordered out. Geri. Meade's brigade
left camp at TennallytoWn about two p.
and marched within two- iniles of the field,
when orders came to return.
Their confidence now in their leaders is un
bounded ; and should General McCall ever lead
they will follow without faltering, even though
they were walking into their graves. This is
the first .victory we have won on the Potomac
for the rapidity with which it.was executed and
the completeness of the victory, without any
loss of life compared to that of the enemy ; and
too much praise cannot be accorded to the of
ficers for the management, and men for execu
ting the commands.
If the rebel loss is as great'in wounded ' as ' it
is in dead, it is over four'hundred killed and
wounded. The proportion is always four or
five to one killed, and we know of about a hun
