teidity, when .Merrill ' Division was eanilng down

rm attack. The engagement took place near
Crubill's Mill,onasmall mountain stream known
us Tom's brouk,
1 be cannou of the opposing parties was posted
on the surrounding bills. A spirited artillery
duel bu rned a prominent feature in the operations
ol Ihe day. The reverberations of the guns were
heard among the mounhtlnsun'il evening. Cuter
had some skirmishing further to the left. After
11 n interesting little tight, the enemy was every
where handsomely repulsed. The enemy, how
ever, bivouacked lust night not far from where
tbe tight clo-cd last evening.
This morning General Sheridan, having hilled
the principal portion of bis command In the
vicinity ol Fisher's Hill, instructed Oennral Tor
bert to attack the enemy and drive bim uway from
such close proximity to our rear. Torbert went
to work immediately, and carried out both
the letter and the spirit of tho order. Accord

pike, about midway between Htriv-hurg and Wood

a position near the same stream, on tbd back
ron it, about two miles closer to the mountain.
Custer advanced first with bis cavalry and bore
urtiHtry. He made a bold attack, and drove the
enemy h ick nbout u mile to a strong po-ition 0.1

The Rebels were advantageously posted on a
commanding hill. Barricades and Wust works
of rails and stones contributed considerably to
strent'then a position which was niturully'for
midable. General ( ustor, however, throw ia bis
whole command, made three inaguiiieuiit charges,
and at last carried the position by ass iuli.
At the same time a junction was formed with
General Merrlit on the turnpike. Sharp skirmish

decisive until Hevius' Bi ignite succeeded in stnk
int; the enemy on tbe (lank. This produced c m
steruKtion ill the Hebel ranks in Mcrritl's front.
The whole division line then pushed forward and
followed the enemy, who was now in full retreat.
1 ho reti oat was soon turned luto a perluct rout.
Custer and Mcrtitt pursued the Hying fugitives,
rapturing guns, caissons, wagons, a herd of
rattle, and several hundred prisoners. Amoug

alive with excitement. Lnre crowds gathered
around the various newspaper establishments
and political headquarters, to loam the "latest"
from Ihe interior. There was a general rejoicing
over the great Union victory that hsd boon
achieved. Salt liver tickets were uoun.lnnt, and
those who bad voted against their country bung
their heads iu shame.
A delegation from the Second Ward made
tlitir appearance on Chesnut street with a lar.ge
bell placed in a furniture our. As the ear moved
slowly along tho boll was tollod, mnoU lo the
delight of tbe spectators. Abive thu bell was tbo
inseiiption : "Wiieoiid Ward, 100 majority." As
this ward hoa always heretofore gooe bom.K'railc,
the tejoicing over the triumph achieved was by
uo moans out of place.
The excitement throughout the city put night,
