Shortly before daylight this mornmg, while

A rapid and continuous discharge of sentinel

frout icwurd the left, when suddenly. with
scarcely a momenta warning, the rebel Infan
try, massed there ihe night before, advanced
against General Crook's position in solnl col
umns, pouring in a fiarce fire on Hank and
front. Only a portion of our troops manned
the breastworks when the assault commenced,
it so energetic and deadly as to break the
lines at once.

In the meanwhile the latter had still ad
vanced, completely tearing the left flank of the
army and were nearaig the pike on the heights
above Tire whole army was by this time
aroused, wagons, ambulances, and artillery
were making for the rear.
The 19th corps, which had stood Arm during
the assault on Crook, now found itself con
fronted by the 2d division of the enemy, which
had iroved up the pike and attacked it fiercely
in iront and flank with musketry and artillery.
Colonel McCauley's brigade, ot the 2d division,
on the left, swnng out of ita position in front to
receive the Hank tire of the loe. The assault
increased in fierceness. The whole division
reformed itself to m??et the shock. The rebels
advancing mounted the breastworks in its
lront, and with withering volleys forced it
back in retreat.
The entire 10th corps, abandoning all its
works, now lought retreating and partially
broken. The scenery of the field at this junc
ture was fairly appalling. The left of the army
completely tcrned, half the army of Western
Virginia flying in dismay through the fog, its
camps, and the greater part of ita camp mate
rial, in possession of the enemy, the remnant,
together with part of the provisional division
and Colonel Ritching, which had been camped
in the rear, lighting still for the possession of
the pike. The Nineteenth corps lighting more
cr less stubbornly, tailing back and constantly
losing in stragglers, the entire country about
Middletown and beyond, in rear, pointed with
a demoralized soldiery; the crack of rebel mus
ketry, sweeping farther up on the left toward
Middletown: hurrying wagons, ambulances,
caisson6: the hiss and explosion of the enemy's
shells from batteries planted in front of the ltJth
corps; the appearance of deieat, impending dis
aster almost everywhere, might have shook the
hope of fanaticism itself. General Wright,
with whom it was lelt to organize a plan which
should change this dismal aspect ot things,
was not a whit discouraged.
The moment that the Army of Western Vir
ginia and the Nineteenth Corps were found to
be definitely falling back, went an order to a
legion that never yet, on any Held, had failed
to achieve the possible. The Sixth Corps on
the right was ordered to change front, swing
around, and stem the torrent. Scarcely a
minute elapsed when its columns were seen
moving majestically by the left Hank straight
into the heart of the conflict. Opening a mo
ment lor the passage of stragglers, its line
closing up again before the assaults that still
bad not been stayed, but like willow withes,
as the tempest struck it, did not break. For a
moment at least the career of the rebels in the
center wes brought to a pause. The artillery
of the cerps unlimberins: close to the rear
thundered Its answer to their shells. This
brilliant movement could not, however, check
the movement of the foe on the left.
Some of their cavalry had already pene
trated into Middletown, capturing a portion of
Gen. Crock's ambulance train, and It is re
ported, seriously wounding Col. Thobnrn, of
the Second division of that command. Their
Infantry had swung round, and were just pos
sessing the pike above Merritt's, Powers's, and
Custer's divisions of cavalry were withdrawn
from the right and sent to stem this disastrous
advance. Alter the check of the enemy in the
centre, the lines of the Sixth and Nineteenth
Corps were reformed?the Sixth on the left, tne
Nineteenth on the right of that.
It was found necessary to withdraw the
w hole line some distance in order to connect
with the cavalry, who were just advancing to
drive the enemy from the pike on the left, and
hold the field at that point. This retrograde
movement was accomplished without loss.
The enemy followed It up closely and venge
lully. Their bullets rained upon the artillery,
killing off horses and men, and embarrassing
the attempt of the artilleryman to move their
guns to the rear. Th<? guns were fought splen
didly?lought everywhere nntil the last mo
ment, when it was found they could not be
removed. Two of Capt. Stevens' guns were
lost, two of Lamb s, one of McKnight's and
two of Adams's. Capt. Adams, with a corpo
ral and man, stood by their piece when all
other support had left, and until every horse
was shot and the corporal and man were shot
beBide him He was then forced to retire. Col.
Tompkins, chief of artillery, while assisting to
remove one of the guns ot Cowan s battery,
was slightly wounded by a musket ball. The
inlantry were also suffering heavily, particu
larly in officers.
When the lines had reached a crest jast to
the right and rear of Middletown. where a,
second stand was made, and when two taryifle
charges of the enemy were repulsed, nearly
every field officer in the First Division of the
Sixth Corps was wounded. Gen. Ricketts,
commanding the corps, baa been bo badly
wounded that he was rorced to leave the Held.
Gen. Bidwel), commanding the Wd Brigade 2d
Division, was mortally wounded by a shell,
which tore his left shoulder to pieces and shat
tered the left arm of Capt. Orr, one of his
aides. Col. Hamlin, commanding the 1st bri
gade, (I'pton's) 1st division, was wounded in
two places, through the thigh and shoulder,
bnt aid not leave the field until afternoon.
Gen. (Jetty, commanding the 'Jd division, had
aborseshot nr.der him. Col. Penrose, com
manding the Jersey brigade, was badly wound
ed in the right arm. Col. Higginbotbam, of the
C5th New York, had been killed. Col Camp
bell, of the 15th Jersey, wounded. Mai. Bow
man, of the same regiment killed. General
Wright, commanding the army, had been
slightly wounded in the chin by a bullet.
The liitb corps bad also suffered severely.
The battle line of the infantry was reformed
on the crest alluded to, just alter Gen. Torbert,
with the cavalry, had swept on the left, pitch
ing into the enemv in that direction off the
pike, establishing his line in conjunction with
it, and holding his own against some of the
fiercest sbelling that was ever showered on
devoted soldiers. At this time, about 10 a. m ,
although the appearance of things in the rear
was still not that generally seen in the rear of
a victorious army, and although an appear
ance of retreat prevailed on some portiocs of
the lines, in front, the army had for the first
time during the day so far won a victory over
its opening disasters as to have disposed a con
sistent and wieldy front towards ?ts foe. hold
ing its own in the main against further attack.
The results of the contest were otherwise
gloomy. We had been surprised and driven
out of a splendid position; had lost innltiply.
iDgly in prisoners; had lost twenty-four pieces
ol artillery, thirty-four ambulanccs, Including
all the medical wagons ana medical supplies
of the 19th corps, and several headquarter
wagons. We bad yielded more than two miles
of the battle-field to the enemy; many of our
finest officers were killed and disabled, and
the killed and wounded were thick around.
A lull. The enemy, relinquishing his attack,
contented himself with a lively use of artillery.
At this moment a faint cheer echoed along the
line In the rear. General Sberidan, who had
ridden posthaste from Winchester, was ap
proaching. His appearance created wild en
thusiasm. Beginning ct the left of the line, he
rode along the whole front of the army, waving
his hat amid uproarious cheers. Betreat was
stopped In an instant from that time till three
p. m. Every nerve was strained to get the
army into an offensive position, and at 3 o'clk
the whole army, the Sixth corps in the centre,
the Nineteenth corps on the right. Crook'*com
mand on the left, Memtt's cavalry division on
the extreme left.Custer's division on the extreme
right, made a magnificent resistless charge,
which swept the enemy off the face of the earth
before it every where.
The enemy had actnally begun to throw up
breastworks, and was preparing to go Into
camp, when this charge was made. He waa
driven back at a double-quick through Middle
town, across Cedar run. wnere he came from,
and waa thence pursued by our cavalry
through and beyond Strasburg.
Forty-three pieces of artillery, some guns
taken lrom ns during the day, were captured at
Strasbnrc; also,over one hundred wagons and
ambulances, and caissons Innumerable. The
army is ordered to move against the enemy at
5 p. m. to-morrow.
