Gen. Lee waited until half-past one o'clock
in the afternoon, expecting an Attack, nnd theu
began to show symptoms of uneasiness. Squad
rons and divisions were moved from his left to
his riirht. and to the lnexnerlenced observer a
grand attack ou our right wing seemed Immi
nent. Gen. Meade had, however, strengthened
hla whole line by the posting of his most relia
ble cores at All exposed DoInU. conOaent that
the enemy would meet a wall of steel wherever
he might elect to make his opening demonstra

lanx at the right, opposite to wnicn was j&weire

presented Longstreet'a grand division In solid
phalanx, and the gallant Hancock stood In bat
tie array before him.
The first demonstration of the enemy was on
the right, with cannon from an emlnenco and
mnsKeiry irom ine wooae. uraauaiiy toe num
ber of guns were augmented, still pouring their
shot la on the right, which were responded to
by our artillery Irom Cemetery nil! with grssL
effect. It soon became evident that this attack
on tbe right was u feint, tbe Infantry move
ments of the enemy in tbat direction being tort
light fur a general assault. After abont au
hour of heavy cannonading the enemy's guna
were gradually concentrated en the centre, and
was soon followed by a grand Assault by Long
trect'a corps on General Hancock's corps.
Thla was the most terrific demonstration that
the enemy hud yet made, and v.ms nndonbtedly
one of desperation and determination to win
at all hazards.
The enemy poured In shot and shell from onn
hundred Ana sixty gnns, nnd were responded to
by nearly two hundred Federal guns, admirably
posted to commanded their Advance. How ft

the battle became so great that tbey were sluion
