own language, "I -h juld have shewn 10 them

Surgeon ot the Fourteenth (Hrooklyu) regi

In rogard to the brutal operations on

tbe careless, heartless, and cruel manner in
which the su geous operated upon our men.

The Washington dispatch of the oih lo
the New York lmt asserts that the
tVeuch Miutaler weut to liiolnuond to
assure t!io rebels that the Emperor of the
French does not recognize thrui an a
low"f anmnsr the nations; that UngW.tvl
and lVfttice, by recognizing tlma as bel
ligerents, did all that could be? expected
ou the J'srt of the neutral government ;
that the blockade of their ports is ellec
tual ; that they aro fairly beaten in arms,
and their independence as a nation it)
impossible; that a continuance of hoi
hln its by the threatened destruction of
the cotton and tobacco crops of their cit
teens, would only be a wanton iujnry to
the eommeice of tbe world, injuring
France and England even more (ban the
United States ; and that the resort to
guerilla warfare, as proposed, wheu their
armies aro destroyed, would demoralixe
soeitty, and be simply a return to bar
barWiu. The rebels Lave been admon
ithed, therefore, that a cessation of hos
tilities is a duty they own to themselves
aud to the world, whioh all citrUue i us
lions will require of th-m.
The Battle near "Williamsburg
1TEINTZELMAN THE MARSHAL
NEY OF THE EIGHT.
Hooker's Division and its Supports,
the Avengers of Bull Run. '
"U lt.i.iAMSLUiii;, Vi., May 7, l.ST.-J The
physical impossibility of dividing a
man whoso horse Iim been sdolen, wiiose
top-boots arc on 1 lie feet of a distant
thief, and who is near paralysis from
sleeping on tho brick lloor of a cellar
without blanket or overcoat (both strap
ped to tho saddle of the horse,) into
throe or moro editorial parts, each tfli
cicnt for describing an extended line of
battle, will be the apology and justifica
tion for the meagre account f ij.a prin
cipal piirt of (lie decisive action of Wil
liamsburg, sent by mo yesterday lo the
readers of the Tiibunt. . To do justice,
and to write history, I will now, on the
day after the fiftht, say that in Hooker's
Division and on the left of tho Union
line, and under the figbfing Heintzel
man's generalship, was fought the battle
which has at last avenged UullCJUtn
w hich has smitten tho rebellion in Virgi
nia with deep discouragement and a prcat
fear aud has opened to the troops of the
North a pathway (if need be,) to the
(Julf of Mexico and to a reconstruction
of the Union.
The sccoud line of the rebel defences
above Yorklown consisted of thirteen
formidable earth forts, within sure artil
lery touch of each other. One of them,
Fort Magrudor, was of great strength.
Most of theso forts were in front of
lleintzelman, and on his left. With the
exception of Kmory's cavalry and of
penson's Battery, the command of lleint
zelman formed bar with the repetition,
for the sake of the clearness of state
ment tho extreme left. There was no
infantry whatever beyond him. Full
two-thirds of the Southern army en
gaged in this important action, were
therefore masked against lleintzelman.
Between 7 and 8 o'clock, Hooker gave
through the down-pouring rain tho order
to drive in the enemy's pickets. Tho
Ths enemy were not in urea, fnrce- Our
ulmost numbers wit 8 Ol'O r f these
were -ahelerl with a twelve miles' march
throuvb tbjmO't atrocious mud roars that
can disgrace tbe birbtiistu even of a Slave
-State wilb a twenty four hours' niu from
vbieh th-.y had no shelter wit!i a want of
food for which oflicial n fi'liff'jnce cannot
jntly be imputed. Uut tbey went to work
with crmracteritttc Northern resoluteness
snd set t the Rebel pickets in flying. Dut
re-in'o'cetnetits from Williamsburg bi'an
to com in Immediately th oldest and best
troops in th R' bel srmy tno-t of them of
the lluil Run aud Mx'wai experience. At
1), tbe enemy grew thicker and nH're agivs
bive. Ilo'k t's second and third brirales
went tu, and were soon followed by K nory's
