The Battle ol Fredericksburg.
The indecisive battle at Fredericksburg, on
Saturday, is very clearly described by the X.
Y. Tribune's correspondent, whose account we
copy below. It should be observed however,
that Humphrey’s and Griffin's divisions, be
longing to Butterfield’s corps of Hooker's grand
division, were held in reserve, and did not
cross the Rappahannock till Saturday. The
Tribune thus describes the battle:
ON THE JtIGHT.
In the council of war held on Friday evening,
some of Burnside's generals expressed doubts
about carrying the enemy's position by assault,
but were ready for any movement he should
order. It wa« determined to assault the ene
my’s position at daylight on Saturday, but a
log prevented until 11 o'clock, when the move
ment commenced. Gen. Sumner had selected
French’s division of Gen. Couch's corps for
the advance of the attacking column on the
right. Orders were to move from the streets
of Fredericksburg,next to the river to the out
skirts of the town, from a line of battle by brig
ades. and preceded by a cloud of skirmishers,
move at u double-quick upon the first line of
the enemy’s works. Gen. Freiich was neces
sarily obliged to march his troops in solid col
umns in parallel streets. As soon as the head
’of the columns had emerged from the lower
into the higher portions of the streets, the ene
my’s batteries opened upon them from several
points. Upon teaching the outskirts of the
town, the order was given to deploy, hut stone
and other fences prevented its ready execution.
During the delay thus caused, the troops were
exposed to au enfilading Are which taxed their
endurance most severely. The line being
formed at last, about noon the order to ad
vance was given. The line moved up and
over a low range of elevations ami down to
ward the foot of the hills on which the ene
my’s breastworks were situated. The rebel
sharpshooters now opened from all sides with
fearful effect. The vigor of the fire of the rel>
el artillery also steadily increased, and when
the line reached the foot of the second range
ofhills, a perfect hail of lead fell U|ion it. The
advance, however, was continued until within
a few hundred yards of the crest of the hills,
when a rapid succession of terrific volleys from
long liues of rebel infantry, suddenly rising in
front of their works, checked it. From the po
sinon tney uau gaiueu unr troops now ex
changed round after round with the enemy
uutll their ammunition became exhausted^nd
the line fell back some distance, leaving nearly
one-half of its number on the field, to make
room for Gen. Hancock’s division.
Hancock's division moved forward stead
fastly up to the point where French’s had re
ceived its check, when it was also stopped by
the murderous Are of rebel infantry anil artil
lery. For two hours it alternately replied to
the enemy’s musketry, and attempted to make
its way up the second range of hills. Altho’
unable to advance, and continually losing num
bers, it fought until its ammunition gave out,
when it was relieved by Howard’s division,
and retired nearer to town.
Howard’s command went into action about
3 o’clock. One after the other of its brigades
was advanced to the front, but, like those of
French anil Hancock's did not succeed in
reaching the enemy’s works. The last, under
Gen. Sally, was ordered to charge up the hill
with the bayonet, and moved forward in most
gallant style, hut was checked, as all the other
troops bad been.
Shortly after French’s division had moved
to the attack, Sturgis division of Wilcox’s
corps advanced over a parallel road on the
left of our right upon the works and batter
ries covering the enemy’s right flank. It ex
perienced the same difficulties in forming, in
consequence of obstructions on the ground,
as French’s, but pushed forward with the ut
most determination, halting only at times to
open its way with musketry. It readied with
in eighty yards of the crest of the hill it
aimed to take, but having lieen fearfully weak
ened in numbers during its advance, had to
halt. It held the point gained for three hours,
notwithstanding it was confronted by vastly
superior numbers of infantry, and enfiladed by
batteries on each flank. Even after its am
munition had all beeu spent, it did not give
way, but firmly held its ground until properly
relieved just before sunset.
Shortly before dark Humphrey's and Grif
fin's divisions were ordered to advance to the
front and relieve the troops of Gen. Couch on
the right, and Gen. Wilcox on the left. They
reached the front, anil formed iu line just be
fore sunset, and at once charged upon the en
emy’s works. Humphrey’s division came
within a short distance of them, and GritHn's
reached the point held liy Sturgis, which re
spective positions they have since occupied.
Duriug tlieir advance the firing from the reb
el artillery reached the highest intensity of
the whole day, but ceased shortly after night
fall.
Simultaneous with the advance of Griffin
and Humphrey, Getty’s Division moved from
its position up the valley of a little stream
skirting the town, and advanced to the base of
the liill occupied hv the rebel batteries on the
extreme right, driving the rebel infantry from
behind a stone wall, from which they had
greatly troubled our troops during the day.—
Here it lay during the night. Syke’s Division
of IlutterAeld’s Corps followed, between Grif
tlii and Humphrey, to the front, but arrived
too late for action. Thus ended the conflict
between our right and the rebel left.
• ON THE LEFT.
The extreme left of Gen. Franklin’s Divis
ion extended three miles below Fredericks
burg, and his right was two miles below the
town, his line being a mile long. The first fire
was made by the skirmishers of the 13th Mass,
in our front. They had moved cautiously in
advance of our lines for half a mile when, dis
covering the enemy's pickets, they fired upon
them. Cannonading soon commenced iu car
nest. The hazy atmosphere of the early part
of the day having cleared away, so u to give
to each of the contending parties a view of
the position taken by the other. Hall's Bat
tery, the 2d Maine, discovered a battery of the
enemy in close proximity, and opened a rapid
and vigorous tire upon it. In a few moments
the artillery tire extended along the entire
line. The 2d U. S. Artillery, Capt. Kanson,
Cooper's Battery of Pennsylvania Reserves,
and others, made and received a severe attack.
The skirmishing was kept up as our lines ad
vanced, and the position of the enemy in the
woods was almost reached. A scattering
musketry fire continued from the first advance,
about 1) o’clock, till noon, and with occasional
lulls. The cannonading was heavy and se
vere.
Now came the most successful and deter
mined effort on this part of the line. The at
tack was made from the point of intersection
of the angle formed by our lines. This point
was nearest the woods, and the enemy’s shells
were falling thickly about it. Gibbon’s divis
ion and the Pennsslvania reserves advanced
laildly towards the works of the enemy. They
pushed determinedly through the brushwood
and bushes on to a grove of cedars, and
through these up the hills towards the breast
works of the enemy. The works were carried,
many prisoners captured, and the crest of the
hill gained, not, however, without a heavy loss.
Gen. Gibbon fell, wounded in the arm, while
leading his command to the attack. The
works of the enemy at this point were gained
but not held. The enemy unfortunately pos
sessed the strength to concentrate overwhelm
ing numbers of fresh troops upon the threat
ened point, and for all the valor of those who
survived, and for all the sa^fcices of those who
fell, the position had to be abandoned, and our
troops were compelled to fall back to the plain.
Th°y had penetrated lievond the railroad and
Bowling Green turnpike, through the woods
and across the outer work of the enemy to the
ton of tin* bill, and were then forced back to
this side of the railroad, where they maintain
ed their stand In advance of that they origin
ally occupied.
During three successive advances and checks
along the center and left of the grand division,
uninterrupted shelling was kept up hy the rebel
batteries upon the bodies of droops at differ
ent point* of the plain. At a large stone man
sion near the center of our line, used as a field
hospital during the day, an incessant fire was
directed. Near this building Gen. Bayard
found an untimely death. A shell struck him
while sitting tinder a tree within a few yards
of Gen. Franklin, in the leg, without explod
ing. His leg was nearly torn off, and he died
in the course of the evening. Toward the
middle of the afternoon the firing along the
lines of the left of the grand division grew
weaker and gradually settled into a compara
tive lull. Shortly before sunset, however, the
firing on the extreme left was renewed with
increased vigor, and kept up until after dark.
At 5 1-2 o’clock it gradually died away, and at
C o’clock it had entirely ceased.
Disloyal Cosspibacy.—The Belfast or
Progressive Age (the Retrogressive Age is
published at Augusta) thus calls attention to
the concerted attempt of the leaders of the dis
loyal Democracy to create a public opinion un
favorable to the Administration and the pros
ecution of the war, by means of a suborned
press:
Wherever there is a Republican press that
can be subsidized, it is immediately seized and
put into service. The New York World which
was. till some six or eight months ago, a Union
paper, has been purchased by Fernando Wood,
and is now doing the work of the disloyal De
mocracy. A former leading Republican pa
per of thin Mate has gone into Democratic
hamfn. awl in note daily annaillng the Admin
istration awl itn policy. The leading Jame
son paper of tills Stute, it is stated, is aliout to
lie purchased by the disloyal leaders of the De
mocracy. and tiie late Bangor Democrat is to
lie started again the first of January. Most of
our readers know what the pretended Jame
son paper of this city has become. Its columns
are lull of disloyalty, and there is not a single
word of sympathy from month to month in it,
either for our brave soldiers or for the cause of
the Union. In almost every town there are ac
tive canvassers for some of these papers or
others equally disloyal. There are numerous
Union men w ho are deceived into subscribing
for these papers; and hundreds of men who
would be true Union men if the means of un
derstandiug the true issue were put into their
hands, are being misled by means of the dis
loyal pa|KTs. How shall this be prevented?
it is by waking to the dangers, and resolutely
counteracting the effects of desperate disloyal
men and presses and seeing to it note, that ev
ery man that can lie reached shall be persuad
ed to take some newspaper that earnestly up
holds tlie cause of freedom and the govern
ment. Now is the time that newspapers and
documents can do service.
Great Military Feat.
The following is from a newspaper corres
pondent, referring to the passage of the river
at Fredericksburg, by the federal troops:
Nothing could lie more admirable or gallant
than the execution of this (taring feat. Hush
ing down the steep banks of the river, the par
ty found temporary shelter behind the pon
toon boats lying scattered on the bank, and
behind piles of planking destiued for the cov
ering of the bridge, behind rocks, &c. In this
situation they'acted some fifteen or twenty
minutes as sharpshooters, they and Hie rebels
observing each other. In the meantime fresh
and vigorous artillery firing was commenced
on our part, and just as soon a» this was fairly
developed, the 7th Michigan arose from their
crouching places, rushed for the pontoon
lxiats, and pushing them Into the water, rapid
ly tilled them with twenty-live or thirty each.
The first boat pushes off. Now, if ever, is
the rebels, opportunity. Crack! crack!
crack! from fifty lurking places go rebel lilies
at the gallant fellows, who, stooping low in the
boat, seek to avoid llic tire. The murderous
work was well done. Lustily, however, pull
the oarsmen, and presently, having passed the
middle of the stream, the boat and its gallant
freight come under cover of the opposite bluffs.
Another and another boat follows. \ow is
their opportunity. Nothing could be more
amusing, in its way, than the result. Instant
ly they see a new turn of affairs. The rebels
pop up by the hundred, like so many rats,from
every cellar, rifle-pit, and stone wall, and
scamper otl up the streets of the town. With
incredible rapidity the Michigan and Massa
chusetts hoys sweep up the hill, making a rush
for the lurking places occupied by the rebels,
and gaining them, each man capturing his two
or three prisoners. The pontoon boats on
their return trip took over more than a hun
dred of these fellows.

The 3Io<lel Cook!
AN AIR TIGHT STOVE
Willi Two Ovens,
The greatest of modem improvements in the line of
Cook Stoves,
EVER OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC.
:
Manufactured by the
Barstow Stove Company,
Whose Castings stand unrivalled throughout New
England.
The senior partner of the Company, whose experi
ence of nearly a quarter of a century in the Stove i
Manufacture, says—that by an
AIK TIGHT STOVE
we moan a stove so perfectly fitted as to place the
• draft of the stove entirely within the coutrol of the
person using it; enabling him to preserve either a
wood or coal tire for mauy hours, by simply closing
the draft slide, thus securing great economy in time,
and in cost of fuel, as well as avoiding the dust con
sequent upon rekindling.
ROASTING AND BAKING.
But the novel—the peculiar feature ot the MODEL
i COOK—that which distinguishes it from all others—
is the addition of a Ventilated Boasting Oven withii
the body of the stove and in front of the tire: so ar
ranged that it can be used separately for roasting, or
(by the removal of a simple plate) iu connection with
the larger oven for baking.
Wherever these stoves have been used, they have
given universal satisfaction.
