The little brigade thus lea isolated
and unsupported, lay between mis

town of Beverly, on the other slope
of the mountain. -The situation ap
peared critical, and the main column,
still lying - on tne' enemy-a -iroui,
seemed to have abandoned them, but
they bivouacked in good order, turn
ed out a half dozen times through
the night on falsa alarms caused . By
indiscriminate picket tiring, and. la

camp to find that part of . the enemy
had escaDod to the mountain and

It instantly and everywhere received.
The plan, as it has been seen, was
entirely his own , and though it was
his first action, as .weii as lor tne
first for the troops he commanded,

The Generai'B confidence was not
unsustained. by rapidly, following
events. ' . General Lee brought to

which the officer in command had
less than half aa laree a number.
Meantime General Cox to whom had
been confided the task of holding the
Kanawha Valley, found himself
about to be overwhelmed by the co
operation of the columns of Wise

menace his communications, - and

General Rosecrans pramptly met
the emergency. Calline In outposts
and detachments everywhere he did
what he coula to strengthen General
Reynolds, and then trusting to that
officer's Bagacity not less than to his
admirably fortified position, he left
him to cope with Lee's threatened
attack, collected such raw regiments
as were within his reach, and at the
head of seven and a half reeiments
three of which had just - received
their arms.lmarched southward from
the line of the N. W. Va. Road to
the Kanawha, to the relief of Gener

he had reached SomeryiLle, a few
miles from Gauley, where he was
duly informed by the frightened cit
izens ana scouts, that x loyd : lay
few miles ahead of him, intrenched
near Cross Lanes with a force of from

himself supplied. The rebel annalist
Pollard says : The campaign.

Rosecrans now was by his assign

stltuting the left wing of Halleck's
army, is never a grateful change;
but the General bore It handsomely ;
was alert enough to be. among the
very first in discovering the e vacua

in pursuit; kept his place in the ad

ENCOUNTERS GRANT, "WHOSE SUBSERUENT
ILL—WILL WAS TO PROVE
The departure of General Haileck
a little earlier to as-ume the General-In-chief
at Washington left General
Grant in chief command at the Southwest,-
and thus for the first' time
brought General Rosecrans - into re
lations With that o nicer, whose sob-
sequent ill-will was to prove so baleful.--..
ONE OF GRANT'S BLUNDERS.
Whether it wa? through his own
engrossment, with the civil cares of
his great department, or through the
chilling influence of General -Halleck's
excess of caution, General
Grant suffered the rebels qnletly to
recuperate from the demoralization
into which they had been thrown by

hoped to reach Iuka not later than
our In the afternoon, and adding
that he should send couriers .from
points every two or three miles along
tne route. ...
GRANT'S MEANNESS—HE DELAYS ROSECRANS'
- But - Gen. Grant, resting, aa it would
seem, on tne single' idea, that Rosecrans
troops had not all reached; Jacinto till
o'clock at night,, ordered Ord, next morn
ing, to delay bis attack. Again, at 4 o'clock
in the afternoon, toe very hour fixed by
Koeecrans ior nia arrival, urant again cau
tioned Ord against attack; but directed
him to move forward to within four miles
of Iuka, and there await the sound of Ro
secrans' gons from the opposite aide. Now
it so happened that the wind was blowing
iresn in tne zace or uoaecrans' column.
R might hare been remembered that Ibis
would prevent the guns from being beard.
but it was not. Even this, coupled with
rtosecrans' aispatca taat ne should be on
hand at tour, was not enough to arouse ei
ther Grant or Ord himself, and the column
lay idly watching the smoke, and ILstenin
for the sounds that the wind was blowing
away xrom mem.
ROSECRANS "GOES IN" AND WINS NOTWITH
Meanwhile Rosecrans had kept his prom1
ise. Within ten minutes of toe time be
had fixed, bis skirmishers were driving in
me enemy's pickets; and a few minutes
later Price opened upon him with grape
ana cannister. lie listened in vain for
the guns from the opposite side, and soon
naa tne moruncauon-'to . sea-, the rebel
troops marching Irom that direction to co
operate in a charge upon hia weak and ex.
posed lines. At sunset a heavy assault
on Rosecrans1 right was made. It was re1
pulsed, and a heavier one came. Half an
hour s conilict ensued, the rebel line at last
drifted back in cusoraer, and the soldiers
discovered in the moment of success, that
they had fired their last cartridge.
A LAST MESSAGE TO GRANT BEGGING FOR REINFORCEMENTS
—HIS EXTREME "CAUTION.
Bivouacking his men in line ot battle,
Rosecrans now sent a last message to Geo.
urant, reciting the events of the afternoon.
saying he was fighting superior forces un
supported, and begging that ord might be
burned up, Then: making some cusdobi
tions to seize some adjacent heights at day
break for bis artillery, and renlenishinz his
ammunition, be bad called the men called
at three o'clock, aad at OAvlight was mo

the proximity cf Ord's column and hsd
hastily evacuated. -- Gen.- Roseerane push
ed the pursuit aa far aa was prudent, then,
under orders, nsstenea back to Uonnth.
The enemy's loss in this engagement
was one thousand and seventy-eight
prisoners, dead, and wounded, left
on the field with three hundred and
fifty more .wounded estimated to
have been carried-away- Our loss
was seven hundred -and eighty-two

But it lives in the .memory of

National advance, and the charging
column was speedily swept back out

again from contemporaneus descrip
tion of this battle, the splendid story
of the charge and repulse :
"A prodigious mass with gleam
ing bayeneta suddenly loomed out,
dark and threatning,, on the east of
tne railroad, moving sternly up me
Bolivar Road in column bv divisions.
Directly it opened out in the shape
of a monstrous wedge, and drove
forward impetuously toward - the
heart of Corinth. Hideous gaps
were rent in it but these massive
lines wereclosed almost as soon as
they were torn. open... Our-shells
swept through the -masses with
dreadful effect, but the brave rebels
passed onward inflexibly.. Directly

great wings seeming to swoop over

there was . fearful march in front.

their necks downward and marched
steadily to xleaLh, with their. laces
averted, like men striving to protect
themselves against a driving storm

crest of the hill, and General Davles'
division began to fail back in dis
order. ; General Rosecrans. who had
been watching the con diet with eagle
eye, and who is-descnoea as having
expressed his delight at the trap into
which Price was blindly plunging;
discovered the break and dashed to
tbefront, inflamed with indignation.
He rallied the men by his splendid
example in the thickest of the fight.
The men brave, when bravely led,
fought again.'1 But before that wild
cheery was repelled. General Kose-
cram' own headuarters were captur

gray, were found lying ia hia door

Rosecrans was ordered to take com

patriots at Washington, who, for
'urgent political reasons," demand
an advance before his own judg

political reasons,-; Gen.' "Haileck,

The officer thus ungraciously suf

The enemies whom he thus made
dealt him their fatal blow at the un

THE POLITICAL VIEWS OF
Letter of General Rosecrans to
The following ia the letter written
by. : General rosecrans to General
Robert E. Lee, on the subject of
reconstruction, in September last : .
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS,
West Virginia, August, 1868.
-General : Full of solicitude for
the future of our country, I come
with my heart in my hand to learn
the condition, wishes and intentions
or me people of the southern States.
ana especially to ascertain the sen
timent or that brave, -energetic and
seii-sacnncing class or men, who.
after sustaining the- Confederacy for
swore allegiance to the Government
of the united utates, -whose trusted
and beloved leader you have been.
I see that interpreting State rights
to conflict with National -unity - has
produced a violent reaction against
mem, wnicn is arming us toward
consolidation; and, also that so great
a country as ours, even now, is cer
tain to be, must have state Govern
ments to attend to local details, or go
iurtner ana iare worse.
It is plain to as at the West and
North that the continuance of semi
anarchy, such as has e? isted. for the
last mree years in ten estates ot our
Union, largely Increases the danger
of centralization ; swells our Nation!
Al expenditures ; dlmltiihes our pro
ductions and our revenue:- inspires
aouots oi our political and financial
stability; depreciates the value of
our : National bonds and currency,
and places the credit ol the richest

Christendom.' We know that our
currency must be depreciated so long
our bonds are below par, and that
tnereiore, me vast Dusinessand com
merce of our country must suffer the
terrible evil of a fluctating standard

evil condition of things at the South.
w e aiso see other mischief quite pos
sible, 4f not-probable, to arise ; such
from a failure of crops, a local in
surrection,, and many other nnfor-
seen contingencies, which may fur
ther depreciate our credit and cur
rency, provoke discontent and dis
order among our people, and bring
demagogical agitation, revolution,
repudiation, and a thousand unnamed
evils and villainies on us. .We know
that the interests of the people ot the
South are for law and order, and they
