The Gallant Conduct of this Beghnent
EfirAniaunirreis Ist Panes, P. R. Ir. C.,
BAITLEFINLD ON Genor's HAL, 12 If. June 27.
Brig. Gm. Joim F. liarmows; Com. lst. Brig.
Gszisnai:=l have the honor to . report that
yesterday, et 1 o'clock r. a., while my, Itegi .
merit (six companies) was doing picket - duty on
the extreme right of our lines, two companies
occupying the railroad and Meadow_Bridges
over the Chickahomony, one company on, the
lett of the bridge, and the remaining three in
reserve, I was ordered to take, my reserve com
panies to> the assistance of the . cavalry, ,who
were falling back hefore a force of the enemy;
already advanced to Atley's Station. -I moved
rapidly forward, posted Captain Wistard'a com
pany at, the Junction of the three roads leading
to Meadow Bridge, Greushaw's Bridge and-, At
ley's station ; deployed Captain Irvin's compa
ny across Grenshaw's road, three hundrecly,ards
in advance, and moved-Captain Jeuett's, com
pany forward toward Atley's to act as atilt.=
mishers for , the cavalry, beyond thef road
leading off to Shady Grove Church. A cavalry
picket ‘ in front of. Captain .Irvin's company
covered Grenshaw's Bridge. At this time the
cavalry officers estimated the enemy's force in
the direction of Atley's,at one battalion pt in ,
tantry, and a squadron of cavalry. Captain
Jeuette had scarcely deployed, when the, enei
my's infantry appeared in ,his front in heavy
tome. He opened fire at snort range, and with
great effect. •The enemy halted in confusion
when iney had re-formed he gave .them .l sec
ond volley.., At this moment I heard that m 3
companies guarding the Meadow and ..1313ilroad
Btidges had been withdrawn, .by order of Cal.
Simmons, commanding the grand guard, and
the enemy had iminediately crowed. I Mame-,
dtately sounded the recall, and,dtrecting:ltiap l
tarn Jenett to move rapidly to the rear, I rode
back Lathe, Junction, wneete.l tumid Captain
-Wiliam already engaged,: with:the enemy's
troops, approaching from Meadow Bridge. Cis
determined trout,and steady tire checked their
advance; but they were gathering heavier forces,
to the front, and soon-forced him to retire.—:-
His route to. Mechanicsville was already inter ,
rimiest and, he fell back to the North, conter.t r
ing every inch,of the: ground., I went back to'
meet. Captain."Jeuits command, turned him
MT to the left and.with a small rear guard..of
cavalry, made a wide detour to the North k svith
the desperatqhope of cutting our way to,Caturi.
Captain Irvin had ' , been nevised by the 2- same '
messenger who brought me news of the ene
my's flank movements, to retire to a safer po
sition, but declined to do so without orders.- 1
Wnen I sent him orders it was already 'to late,
and he was entirely surrounded. I heard some
Ming in his 'direction; but have not heenable to
learn whether any of his, inert were killed or
wounded—noue of theni returned to Camp.
With the other companies 1 succeeded, after
a long, fatiguing march through woods and
swampri, part of the way under fire, in Making
my way to the ford ,in the swamp, above thy
own camp. The three companies which had
been recoiled from picket, had already come
safely in. Wheal came in, after having been
repOrted entirely cut off, your adianced line of
battle was already formed at :Mechanicsville.
The enemy did not appear, in year, front fOr
smile time, having evidently been led to believe
by our broad front and rapid fire that oar force
was much larger, and had halted near the junc
tion tri make his dispositions for battle. Our
loss in the fight and retreat was abhut seventy
five men, but it is impossible to distinguish
those killed, wounderior prisoners. I have no
doubt the enemy's; loss,= wasmuchgreateri than
ours, as our fire was mainly directed lipontheir
masses. My men came in very much exhaust
ed, but when the eneiny,appeared . in, our front
we :occupied occupied! our- .rifle:pits-aultitierind a. very
steady fire uport•thern. The, engagement coin
menced'at half:Pith fodr, r: at , aria lasted until
night-fall. You are;tamiliar with all the gen
eral,facts. The position of my, ',entrenched_
camp' covering two - Prinelptit fortis of te
swamp was apparently the key to the whole
line. :..For four. hours the enemy made the
most desperate, effort. : to force their passage.—
Regiment after'. regiment were , thrown for
ward for that purpose ; bat as often ; they
melted , away. Tile two sectionsi of
ttAn Cooper's batttrry (B) R; C., stati,oned
eue.eattnworks, under Captain "Cooper, own
command was most effi
oiendy serVed, ninon 'Of; the time under/our
own direction. They drew the fire of the ene
my's batteries.but the earthworks end rifiepils
gave,great protection to the gunners and rifle
men. The canialtitia of the day were compak
'advely slight. Of my command two men were
killed; two officers and Sixteen .men,wonndeil
The enernY'si losses on our front 'must hive been
immense. Together with the sth regiment do
our left and:. the let and, 2nd orourrighroie ,
had deteate,d and'repulieci - hhir frill brigades
of the enemy. But for the unflinching galtant
ry•of those regimentikonr, ,position Aprild not
haie been held, for the enemy could have
struggled across above and below both fords and
turned both our fiablii. - Two companies of the
11. S. sharpshooters, Capt. Drew and Captain
—, attached to my: command, during the ac-
Con, behaved with 'great . steadiness and
ered a most effective fire. As .to -my own ria:-
giment, you were kind enough to , express yoor
own. satisfaction witli,its etihduct, and - I cats

We could not bring off our dead or wounded, -
and every man who gave. out in the donble

this line of battle. I have here six officers
and one hundred and twenty five men. Owing

brigade were sent out on *today from -.Mar

on the Lebanon turnpike. While at their post
'they were attacked by a party of men,supposed
to ba citizens 'of the neighborhood, and two
were killed and three wouo'ded.
Seventy-five soldiers were immediately sent
out in search of the assassins, who, we hope,
will be treated as common murderers and nos
as prim:Mere of war. No man who joins these
bodies of murderers, who do not carry on reg
ular warfare, has :any right to claim the
treatment due a soldier. It is as-assination to
kill men as these pickets were killed, and tt.e
perpetrators should be treated "as such when
taken. ,Self-preservation imperiously demands

refuse to come as soldiers to a State where

attempted'-to bring down some one hundred and
seven of our sick and wounded soldiers that
had been, captured at Baltimore Store. No flag
of truce law was violated by; this act, as the
rebelit at first readily consented to let them off
on parole. • Itwaa a body of rebel cavalry who
prevented their .return.- No doubt there was
some misunderstanding in some way, for yes
terday the rebels sent a flag of truce to Gen.
McClellan; infoiming him that he could send
and obtain those prisoners - at -any, time, and
consequently the. John Tticker started again for
them last night.
the late'Ciilonel of the 2:d 'Maryland regi-
Merit resigned on account of ill-health; which
left the 'command of the regiment to the Lieut.
E.,.Dttryee, which gave t he most entire
satisfaction to the. members of tbe regiment.—
The Governor of Matylarid,'hoWever, appointed
a gentleniatf from'•that •State as Colonel, and
sent him down to take command; • To this the
officers and men, demurred,, and the, result was
that the newly appointed Colonel was( taken
