COMMUNICATIONS. The .Maine' Fifth—.From the Chickahonm. ny to Anlietam. Camp Maine fifth Regiment, ) near Hagerstown, Md.. Sept. 27, 18(52. J EnrroRH Press:—Perhaps a few words from, the old “Filth Maine,” will not be unac ceptable to your readers, at this time. In . _ brief, therefore, I propose to give you a resume of our recent operations. Alter a six weeks sojourn upon the bills of Western Va., aptly and truly denominated by a Richmond paper, as being the “hottest place out of tophet,” we were only too glad to get once more into a healthy breathing place, through the long and tedious march to Newport News. Here we embarked for Alexandria, in the old steamer “John Urooks,” whereon we languished so long last April, in the waters of “Shipping Point” harbor, awaiting the fall of Yorktown. Alas! how solemn the thought that many of our com rades, then in ail the hope and pride of vigor ous manhood, now lay low in death amid the swamps of the Chickahominy \—some stricken down by disease, and others dying gloriously upou the battle-fluid, while others still are ly ing on lieds of anguish in their XorUiem homes, , made cripples tor litis—• fittc, in some instan ces, worse than death. Such is war! Lauding at Alexandria, we marched to our old quarters at Fort Lyon, the fruit ol our ear ly handiwork with the spade and pick. Here wc had scarcely time to gather breath lwfore our ears were saluted with the order—“Pack up and be ready to march in half an hour.” This was a great disappointment to our weary and footsore men, who had anticipated a few days rest, but there was no help for it; and cheerfully we went out way over the already thrice-travelled road to Centreville. The friends of Gen. Po|ie have blamed Gen. Frank lin for not sooner coming to the support of the former, but I am inclined to believe with but little justice. Had we been hurried forward at the “double-quick,” as was the ca«e at the Bull Run of 'til, it is extremely doubtful if the result had not been equally disastrous. As 11 was, aim i nave not seen me met announced in any paper, probably because our corps d' ar mee employs no newspaper correspondent to write it into notoriety, we arrived in time to check a panic which, had it been allowed to augment, must have resulted in untold disas ter. Our brigade under the lead of the gallant Col. Bartlett, was in the advance, and just as the last rays of the setting sun were fading from the western sky, we crossed “Cub Kun'” and advancing about half way to Bull Kun creek, we flled^off to the right into a field, and forming in line of battle, stacked arms and threw our weary bodies on the ground for a few minutes’ rest. At this time, the cannonad ing had nearly ceased, and all accounts Irom the front were of au encouraging nature, as ail along the route we met couriers who an nounced we were gaining a great victory. But we bad scarcely got stretched upon the ground when an officer rode furiously up to our brig ade, shouting in an excited tone—“Fall in! tlie reliel cavalry are upon us P’ In a twink ling almost, every man was at his post. And now commenced a scene which I hope never to witness again. Against our brigade, now formed in square to repel cavalry, came on a mob of stragglers, cavalry, infantry aud artil lery men, In squads, companies, and parts of regiments, officers mixed up indiscriminately with the men, all fleeing at their greatest speed before an imagined pursuing foe. As they reached our solid qplutnns, they broke to the right and left, and many sped on, ainid the scoffs and anathemas of our men, and did not stop till they got to Centreville, while, others, seeing our firm ranks,recovered from their pan ic and formed again in our rear. It was Indeed a disgraceful sight to see men and officers,run ning before a foe not yet in sight, throwing away their guns and swords, in their frantic haste to get away. It is said this panic was the result of a daring advance of a section of rebel light battery upon our center, after Mc Dowell’s line had been forced, and his men were in full retreat. This battery threw a few shells into a hospital, around which a crowd of stragglers and teamsters had gathered, and thus created the skedaddle, and came very near turning the disorderly retreat of McDow ell’s corps into aperfect stampede, which must have ended in the capture of all of our artillery and trains. Our brigade maintained its ground while the fatigued and war-worn veterans of Sigel and McDowell passed to the rear and took up a new position at Centreville; and then filing off to the left, our right was selected to go on picket, supported by Hexamer’s New Jersey battery. Ours was a ticklish jiosition, but we were not molested, and the next morning we drew back and recrossed “Cub Kun” just as the pioneers were destroying the bridge, being the last troops that passed over, and in full view of a rebel battery which came galloping up to give us a parting salute. I must not omit, in this connection, a little incident that occurred while the panic was at Its height Our Chaplain, the Kev. Mr. Ad ams, of Gorham, a good Christian, and a sound patriot, rode up along the front of our regi ment, and checking his horse, viewed, for a moment, the rushing crowd, and then, drawing himself up to his full height, and with kindling eye, he turned to us, and exclaimed, as he pointed the Anger of scorn at them,—"Look at them 1 look at them, boys! Oh shame! shame 1 shame!” The brave old chaplain 1 I could have hugged him then. The eflfect was elec tric, and it placed Itefore our men in its mean est light, the shameful cowardice there dis played. Major Kdwards, too, at this j uncture, acted with great coolness and judgment, as with encouraging words he rode along our ines, and ever and anon, would dash in among a crowd of skedaddlers, and compel them to either enter our ranks, or give up their mus kets to those of our men who were without them. With slow and steady tread wc kept on to Centreville, passing the 1st Maine Cavalry on the way. This regiment stands very high in the estimation of general and cavalry officers, aud many of the men are detailed as body guard to the various brigades of Banks’ corps. t.. r.t .i.i. is tit. t.1 11 K • » n IM1 J'l I'1> , Oil VUI 1UU1I1L 1 imenU are popular iu the army. Constituting the rear of Pope's retreating ar my, we were not in the fight at Chantilly, when the brave and dashing Kearney, and the no less brave, but much misunderstood Stevens, met their death, but in death gave victory to our arms, and saved Pope from the consequences ot his long delay at Centreville. It was a dear bought victory. Next to McClellan no man enjoyed the confidence of our soldiers so much as Phillip Kearney; and Stevens, had he lived, would have made a reputation second to no man. Nothing of interest characterized our march back to Fairfax, and frpm thence to Fort Ly on again. At Fairfax we expected a linttle; but the enertry, after the Chantilly fight, be came shy; and besides, he had Ids eye on the rich vales of eastern Maryland, wherewith to recruit his starving legions. From Fort Ly on we went to Fairfax Seminary, near old Camp Franklin. Here we hoped to gain a lit tle rest, and recuperate our wasted energies. But no: the enemy were in Maryland, and McClellan had determined to punish his temer ity, now that he was in command once more. And down over Long bridge, through the streets of Washington, stopping just long enough to clteor our gallant chief, up the heights of Georgetown, aud along the dusty road to Rockville, sped our wearied troops.— Day after day, over suffocating roads, and un der a burning sun, our poor fellows pushed on. Now and then a poor fellow would fall ex hausted from the ranks, and be borne to a shady spot to await an ambulance, if indeed, he lived. This march was especially hard for the new regiments. But the enemy were rav aging Maryland, and “forward,” was the word. At length the spires of Frederick are in view, and the booming of distant cannon tells that Sumner is encased. AH fatigue is now forgot ten, aud every eye kindles and every check is aglow with excitement, as we move rapidly forward; but instead of going to Frederick, we turn to the left, and leatn that our destination is Harper's Ferry which is menaced by Jack son himself. But we arc not fated to get there in time to prevent the consummation of the foulest act of treachery the annals of warfare present. Our purpose is anticipated by the enemy, and Cobb's Legion and McGaw's Di vision of Arkansas aud South Carolina troops dispute the passage of Cratnpton Gap. Away to our right, at the Pass of South Mountain, we heard the roar of Burnside's cannon, telling of a des|>erate struggle, aud it is evident to Franklin that the rebels intend to hold these passes at all hazards. To reach IIar|H-r’s Fer ry it is necessary to possess this Gap, and up on that calm .Sabbath afternoon, Gen. Frauk liu calls a council of his Generals to decide as to the best means to attain this en£ It is finally determined, at the request of that Gen eral, that Major Gen. Slocum’s Division shall storm the pass at the point of the bayonet, as our artillery can do nothing with that of the ! enemy, so advantageously jiosted on the side ; of the mountain. It was done—gloriously done; and when the full particulars of the achievement arc known, it will be universally acknowledged as the most brilliant tight of the war. Our brigade was selected to open the ball, to be followed by the gallant Jersey brig ade, and that in turn by Newton’s brigade, j The 27th N. Y., 5th Maine, Kith N. Y, and j 90th Penn., constitute our brigade, command ed by Col. Bartlett, as brave an oftieer as ever drew sword. The 27th was sent lorward as skirmishers, and the 6th Maine on the left, and and the 14th N. Y. on the right, constituted 1 the first line of battle, witli the 9Glh as a re ' serve. In this order, we commenced the fight, advancing in the face of a furious cannonade, through corii-tleids and over fences, never once ■ flinching or losing our line, although many I slid is burst directly over us, wounding a few, | until we got up with the skirmishers now hot | ly engaged with the enemy. Immediately the ] “butternuts” came in view, crouched behind a I stonewall and sheltered by the thick growth of wood oil the mountain side. We gave them a volley of musketry from right to left. For over an hour was this lire kept up, the enemy replying with vigor, and many of our boys were carried to the rear. At last our ammu j nitlon gave out, but just at this critical mo ment the Jersey boys came on nt a charge, and such a cheer as our powder-stained boys i gave them must have struck terror to the hearts of the rebels. Retiring a few paces to the brow of a slight declivity which afforded a slight protection I from the solid shot of the enemy's cannon, we waited the arrival of ammunition; but Gen. ; Newton, who was in immediate command, de | termined to make a general advance of the | whole line, with the bayonet, and up we got, amid the whistling shot, ami at the order “charge bayonets!” we went forward with a shout over our first line of battle, and after tlie Jerseys, who were already on the ground occupied by the enemy. But before we could get half way across the plowed Held separa ting us from the enemy in the woods, an aid rode up and ordered us to halt, and marched us by “the right flank” to another portion of the Held. Then Col. Bartlett rode up, and or dered us hack a little distance for rest, stating that we had done our share of the fighting, and as the enemy were in full retreat, we were no longer ueeded. By this time, too, the fir I ing hail nearly ceased, and the cheers of the gallant Jerseys could be heard high up the mountain side. The gathering darkness alone stayed the pursuit. The \ ictory was complete Our loss in this fight was .33 killed and wounded; our whole division loss will not ex ceed 300 killed, while that of the enemy is nearly double. We also took 1.100 prisoners, among them the commander , of the Georgia legion, also several pieces of cannon. Our men behaved nobly in this fight, seemingly indifferent to the shells that burst in rapid suc cession all around them. Col. Jackson and Lieut. Scammon were promptly on hand, at tending to the safety of their men, while Maj. Edwards was in the thickest of the fight, direct ing the fire and stimulating every one by his example. Capt. Bucknam, than whom no braver man breathes, was severely wounded in the shoulder. All the line officers did their duty nobly. [Concluded tomorrow.)
