Capt. Enwem.) M. Mu., Asit. risif t. Ckn'l. 2d
Brigade, Coast Division:
Sra:—l have the honor to report, for the in
formation of the General commanding the
brigade, that after landing three companies of
my regiment at Sloctim's landing, on the 13th
inst., I was ordered to follow the Ninth New
Jersey regiment. Leaving Lieutenant Colonel
Thomas S. Bell at the place of disembarkation
to bring forward the remainder of the regiment
as soon as landed, I moved forward after the
Ninth up the beach. Finding Captain Ben
nett's gun, from the steamer Cossack, manned
by an insufficient force, .I made a detail of my
men, who dragged it to the point where we
left the river, and then left it, with directions
to Captain Bennett to apply to Lieutenant Col
onel Bell for assistance when he came up. I
soon after overtook Lieuenant McCooks, (U, S.
N.,) six gun howitzer battery, from the gun
boats, and being so ordered by General Burn
side, detailed a company to assist in bringing
it forward. I then pushed on with the brigade
and bivouacked with it on the railroad, about
six o'clock, P. M.' As soon as the remaining
seven companies disembarked, they were
marched forward by Lieutenant Colonel Bell.
On reaching Captain Bennett's gun, he made
the necessary detail to bring it forward, He
soon overtook Lieutenant McCook's battery,
whose men were very much exhausted, and re
ceiving an order there from General Betio,
through you to make every assistance in bring
ing it to the front, took charge of the guns
with his seven companies and the,one I had left
The ground, before reaching the county road,
being very miry, and alter reaching it, exceed
ingly heavy, the labor was necessarily very se
vere, and their progress very slow. He pro
ceeded with the battery, and Bennett's gun
which had overtaken him, until 91. P. Id.,
when an orderly, that he had sent on to Gen
eral Burnside, returned with a message that he
might bivouack if he thought best; but to have
the guns up early in the morning. As the
men seemed utterly unable to proceed without
some rest, they bivouacked until between one
and two o'clock, A. M. He then moved them
forward, and reported his arrival and all the
gluts to Generals Burnside and Reno, at their
Headquarters at four o'clock, A. M. The com
panies were again bivionacked until between
six and seven o'clock, A. M., when in accord
ance with General Reno's order, they united
with me on , the raffid: The movement on
the enemy was commeuced almost immediately
afterwards, and in my position, I proceeded up
the railroad, and, when near the enemy's
works, filed to the left into the woods with my
brigade. I received the order to proceed to
the extreme left, to support the Ninth New
Jersey, and resist any attack of the enemy
from their works on the left. The Ninth was
soon engaged, and under a very heavy fire I
brought my regiment into line, supporting
the Ninth with my right wing, and with the
left, covering the approaches from that quar
ter. My regiment remained this position
tor some time, and at this point several of my
men were wounded, though ,I sheltered them
as-much as possible by causing them to lie
down. I sent my skirmishers to my immediate
left with orders not to fire, but to reconnoitre.
they reported to me that the works of the en
emy, of the same character as those in our
front, extended as far as they could see. The
Ninth moving further' to the front, I moved
my regiment forward and to the left, so as to
maintain the interval of about one hundred
feet between my regiment and the Ninth. 1
desire to mention here, that Lieutenant Col
onel Hickman, commanding the Ninth, was
most persevering and energetic in the manage
ment of his regiment throughout the engage.
ment. While in this position, I received the
order from tieneral Reno, to send my left wing
to the assistance of the Fifty-filet New York,
engaged on the right, whose ammunition was
running short. The left wing, under command
of Lieutenant Colonel Bell, immediately march
ed on the double quick, to where the Fifty-
Rrat New York was engaged, and was formed
in line on the crest of the small lull about one
hundred and twenty-yards from the enemy,
and who were firing from behind their breast
works. After delivering a round, which had
the effect of causing a slatkening of the ene
my's fire, General hen° ordered the firing to
cease, and directed Lieutenant Colonel Bell to
charge with his companies on the works of the
enemy. This was immediately done with loud
cheers, and struggling through the abbatis and
marsh that obstructed the approach through
the ravine, soon reached the battery and plant
ed their colors inside. The enemy retreated
while the charge was being made, leaving the
two guns in the battery still loaded. The
right wing was immediately advanced, and
joined the left in the battery. The regiment
was then formed and marched with the bri
gade up the railroad and bivouacked for the
night. During the engagement none of my
men were wounded.
It is with pleasure that I am able to make
particular mention of Lieutenant Colonel Bell,
who so gallantly led the charge of the left
wing on the enemy works. I also mention
with pleasure the services rendered by Lieu
tenants Fair, Beaver and Carman, who were
very active from the time of landing, and
especially during the engageinenta. They had
previously been detailed to act as aids to me.
Lieutenant Bible, my Adjutant, was also very
active and efficient. All my officers through
out the trying labors of "the day of landing and
during the engagement, were most efficient,
and by their patience,, coolness and gallantry,
inspired their men with confidence. The con
duct of the men in forming and maintaining
their line of battle under a heavy cross fire,
and their gallantry in unhesitatingly dearing
the woods of the enemy over obstacles deem
ed to be impassible, is worthy of all praise.
The band of my regiment, which was acting
as an ambulance corps, were very efficient in
removing my wounded, as well as a number
of the Fifty-first New York and Ninth New
In conclusion, I may say that I have every
reason to be fully satisfied with the conduct
and discipline of my regiment. - • •

A NEW YORK OFFICER'S TESTIMONY Or
We have been kindly permitted to make the
following extract from a telegraphic despatch
received last evening by Gov. Curtin, from an
officer of one of the New York regiments:
W.unmeroa, May 9. -
The battle at Williamsburg was a most bril

fhe fighting lasted from daylight till dark.
Hooker's and Smith's divisions, and parts of
Casey's and Kearney's were actively engaged
all day, and an equal force in reserve.
The enemy had forty thousand men under
Johnson, Longstreet and Early. Their troops
were principally from the extreme South.

A JUNCTION WITH FitANBLINS DIVI
Wzraiimailmo, May 9, 12 M
At he War Department:
I heard a few minutes ago that the Galena
was aground off Hog Island. I judge not badly
for the reason that Captain Rogers does not
throw over coal.
I have sent him all the assistance he asks.
My troops are in motion and in magnificent
spirits. They have all the air and feelings of
Veterans. It will do your heart good to see
I have effected a junction with Fr!knklio.-f
Instructions have been given so that the navy
will receive prompt support whenever and
wherever required. _

Was reported that some of those regiments had
fled without firing a gun. He referred to the
58.1 regiment, who according to all reports fired
two rounds and then retreated in order of Col.
Appley, who left and was not seen any more
during the day. But the regiment rallied and
and fought during Sunday and Monday. He
had no desire to do any injustice to Col Appley,
but it was evident that the regiment's only
fault was in having a faithless officer. This
colonel he understoodhas been cashiered be
cause he refused to fight on that day.
In regard to the 77th Ohio, the reporters are
all incorrect. Though they were raw troops
they fought bravely and well, notwithstaud.ng
Gen Sherman's report was against them. This
regiment lost 221 men, killed, wounded and
missing. lie also defended the 71st regiment
from the charge of cowardice. They were all
fresh, raw troops, who were called upon to

He referred to the of other Ohio regi
