Szaassurto, .Va,, Mardi 28 t 1862.,.
MR. Thrum r---Tho recent siirelng eveols in
this region hive soSatily',--dortmg,ed:mmiviiids,
that you will pardon me for notlttgitlngearlier,
though I know. some uneasiness may exist
among those who have friendsin the 46th regi
ment, P. V., concerning it.
On Saturday morning our brigade received
orders to march. and by one o'clock were on
their way towards Centreville, being ordered to
join the "Army of the Potomac under General
el'Clellan at that point, the other brigade of
our division having preceded us, leaving Gen.
Shields in command at Winchester. Passing
through a beautiftil country we reached Berry
ville, distant eleven miles, by evening, and
"pitched our tents" just outside the village.
Secessionism here, as well as at Winchester,
strongly predominates, though a few loyal
hearts gave us a cordi;il welcome. Continued
our March on Sunday morning, but on arriv
ing at the Shenandoah river found the bridge
broken, and men were at once sent forward to
construct a pontoon bridge, the regiment. the
meanwhile reating upon the roadside. Just as
we were in readiness to move forivard,the whole
brigade was ordered back .to Berryville, from
whence it started at 11 o'clock r.
,at., for Win
chester, making , a forced march, the night be
ing very dark—and arriving within sight of
the city just as the sun rose, when a halt was
made, and while momentarily awaiting for the.
order, and as eachrunior of ttie terrible battle
of the day before reached us, the excitement
became intense, and our boys were eagre for
the fray, as it was anticipated that .Jackson
might possibly renew the attack. • -
From what we could learn relative to the
attack, it appears that Jackson was misled
concerning the evacuation of Winchester by our
troops, supposing our whole force had left,skve
a' small detachment as guard, and conse
quently expected an easy victory, as on Satur
day afternoon, only an hour or two after our
departure, Ashby's cavalry were drawn up in
line, only a few miles from the city, and two
pieces of artillery placed in position. Towards
evening an advance was made by the rebels—
four companies of our brigade, including one
from the 46th Pennsylvania, under command
of Major Mathews,holding them in check until
General Shields' forces arrived, when a small
A skhmish.ensned, during which. the General was
wounded by the bursting of kshell.
On Sunday morning, Jackson hai , ing been:
renttoroed,-tho attaok -was iwnewed with-10DM
vigor, followed by very severe fighting, the
- rebels slowly giving . wayy and late-in the after:
noon a desperate charge was made by several
of our regiments, taking five or six pieces of
artillery, and ending in the utter rout of the
rebels. It was during this charge that the gal
lant Col. Murray, of the 84th Pennsylvania,
fell, while leading his brave boys on to vic
tory. Thus has another hero been offered a
sacrifice upon the alter of patriotism—another
generous, noble-hearted man—one whose low
will be keenly felt—taken from arcking us—
but ever will his memory be cherished. Peace
to his ashes.
By seven „clock we were twain ordered for
ward, and marching through WinchesVr found
all excitement and confusion, people running
to and fro, ambulances loaded with wounded,
whose groans were truly distressing, waiting to
be unloaded at the temporary hospitals which
had been prepared, and everything betokening
how terrible the contestJiad been. As we pro
ceeded along the Strasburg pike, the road. was
nearly filled with ambulances and stragglers
from the field of battle, nearly all bearing some
tropy of the fight, and all, more or less, be
grimmed with powder. Shortly after passing
the battle field, in which our two hundred dead
bodies still lay unburied, we threw off our
knapsacks, so exciting did the pursuit become,
and by evening, when within two miles of Ce
dar creek, on the other side of which Jackson
was encamped, weary and nearly worn out,
having-marched for nearly forty-eight hours,
we bivonaced for the night, building large fires,
and lay down upon the ground without any
blankets, and many not having overcoats. The
night was cold, but all arose in the morning
ready to push forward, and with some slight
skirmishing by our bateries in front,we reached
Strasburg about noon or a little alter. Jackson,
however„ proved too skillful at retreating to
allow us to catch him,but we harrassed him so
much that be was compelled to bury many of
his dead, which he had taken with him, along
the roadside, in order to lighten his wagons.—
lt was in fact the greatest rout of the war, and
while our loss was large, yet his was double
that of ours. The pomp and pageantry of sol
diering Is very fascinating, quite romantic, bat
when we see the dreadful realities of war as
we did on that day; the heart sickens with hor
ror over the bloOdy slaughter; yet the rebellion
must be crushed.
The whole of the Fifth army corps are now
lying around Strasburg awaiting orders, Gen.
Banks being here in person. I cannot tell you
Lieut. Whitman, of company "D," has been
detached and is now acting Aide de-camp to
Col. Donnelly of the 2 / 3 11i New York, who
commands our brigade, Gen. Williams having
been promoted to the command of the, division,
formerly under command of Gen. Backs. The
promotion of Lieut. Whitman to such a re
sponsible-position will gratify his many friends
at home. More anon. -
Direct letters to "Winchester, Ira," until
further orders.

Mr. TP.IIMBEILL moved to add a proviso that
such oath of the party to the petition shall not
be evidence to ihn facts therein stated. Agreed
to, and the amendment was adopted.
Mr. Snowmen moved to amend so that the
average price be $5OO, instead of 000, and that
one-half be retained by the Secretary of the
Treasuary, to be paid to the person liberated.
If he emigrates to another country, he said we
should do something more than simply liberate
the negro. He did not believe the two races
could live together with mutual advantage.—
Indeed, with all his horror of slavery, he was
not sure but that if the two races must live
together, the best way was to leave them re
main in the relation of master and slave.
