OUS IN THE GREATEST
BATTLE OF THE
CENTURY!
After ti*e last edition of yesterday's 8t ir wont
to press official despatches reached Washing
ton annonncwg that oneof the most desperate
battles of the war occurred on Thursday after
noon from 4.30 until 8-Kt p. m., in which our
General Zook and the relvl General Barksdale
were killed. Prisoners invariably assert that
Longstre?t was also killed.
We take the following account of this great
engagement from a special despatch to the
IS'ew York Timr*, published in that journal's
Issue of yeiterday afternoon:
At about 4X P- do. th? enemy sent his first
compliment^ by a salvo of artillery, his first
shell falling uncomfortably near Gen. Meade's
headquarters. Prom this hour forth to
o'clock occurred by all odds, the most san
guinary and bloody engagement yet chronicled
in the annals of the war, considering its .short
duration.
The HTtillery attack which was made by the
enemy chiefly on the left and centre, was rap
idly followed by the advance of his infantry.
The Third Corps received the attack with
great coolness. The Rebels at once made an
attempt to get on our llank, and kept moving
heavy columns in that direction. This neces
sitated support wnich was quickly given by
the Filth Corps, the division of Gen. Karnes'
being sent to the* right and that of Gen. Ayn-s
(regulars) to the left, with Gen. Crawford in
reserve.
The battle now became terribly fearful. The
armies engaged each other at a very short
range, and for three long hours the roar of
musketry was incessant. I have heard more
noises, louder crashes in other battles, but I
never saw or heard of such desperate, tena
cious lighting as took place on this flank. The
enemy would often bring up suddenly a heavy
column of men and lorce our line back, only
to be in turn forced back by our o wn line of
glittering steel.
Our gallant columns covered themselves
with glory over and o^er again. They fought
a superior force in numbers; the dispositions
of the enemy were very rapid, for look where
you would on that field, a body of rebels
would be advancing. Our dispositions were
equally rapid, and the enemy found more than
their equal in such gallant veterans as Sickles,
and Birney and Humphrey's. Ato# General
Sickles was struck in the right leg fcy a piece
of shell and borne from the field The injury
was so great that amputation became neces
sary, and it was performed successfully, the
limb being taken off below the knee.
The struggle grew hotter and hotter, and
many of our regiments, Small enough before
melted away into almost nothing. The Second
Corps was called on ler aid, and though its
own position was strongly threatened, yet the
First Division, formerly General Hancock'si
llung themselves into the fight with despera
tion, and after a long and ob3tinate conflict,
the enemy slowly and sullenly gave way. I si
this last charge the brigade of General Cald
well, Second Corps, and that of Col. Sweitzer,
from tfce Fifth Corps, won great honors.
The charges made by onr men deserve men
tion, but want of time forbids. The rebels
made frequent attempts to capture our artil
lery; and at one time had Watson's battery in
their possession, but it was retakeu iu a fu
rious charge by Birney's division.
The battle lasted till fully half-past 8 o'clock,
when the enemy fell back t? his old position,
and left our veterans the ensanguined victors
of that field. Our pickets were thrown out,
and our lines covered the most of the field, in
cluding great numbers of the enemy's dead
and wounded. I visited some portions of the
line by moonlight, and can bear personal wit
ness to the terrible ferocity of the battle.
A groat and magnificent feature of this fight
is the splendid and extensive use of artillery.
Though our line was only a mile and a half
long, yet almost every battery belonging to the
Army of the Potomac was more or less en
gaged. Every one of the Reserve batteries was
bronght into action, the positions for use being
numerous.
The enemy also used artillery largely, but
not to near so great an extent as we did. From
this they suffered immensely, especially on the
left, where canister was largely used. I be
lieve we lost no artillery, unless it was two or
three disabled pieces, though it was very won
derful we did not, considering how the ene
my's forces were piled on to ihem. Some of
their skirmishers were literally blown away
from the muzzles of our guns.
Our losses at this hour cannot be computed.
For the two days' fighting they must reach
10,000. We mourn the loss of many valuable
officers, but they have been amply revenged in
the hecatombs of rebel dead who lie piled along
our lines.
The enemy withdrew his force Irom the city
of Gettysburg yesterday, and occupies it now
only with skirmishers. Opf skirmishers ad
vanced into it a short distance last night, and
now kola considerably more than they did.
Capt. Dahlgren, volunteer aid to Gen. Pleas
anton, made a daring scout into Hagerstown
yesterday with twenty picked men, and cap
tured more prisoners than he had men in his
party. He also captured a dispatch bearer
from Jefl Davis to Lee, with despatches of the
greatest importance, the nature of which can
not to-day be properly disclosed. They have
an important bearing on ?* coming events."

On withdrawing from the field Lee left his
dead and wounded in our possession.
The night was passed by our glorious vete
rans in confident preparation* for the deadly
conflict that seemed likely to be renewed at
daybreak yesterday.
At four a. m., as was expected, our artillery
opened fire along the whole line, and a hot
engagement began, which continued until half
past one p. m., with, as far as is uow known
here, invariable success on our side, though
the rebels fought with terrible desperation and
obstinacy, assuming the offensive early in the
action, and expending themselves in many
fruitier assaults of greater or less magnitude
until prepared for their last grand and most
fruitless effort of the day, which General
Meade narrates in his dispatch of 8.30 p. m.,
which is as follows:
Official Dispatch of General Mrade.
HEAIXJUAF.TERf? ARMY OK THE POTOMAC,
July 3d, t'.&J p. m., near Gettysburg.?Major
General Hallstk, GeruraUin-Ckitf ? The enemy
opened at I p. m. from nbont 150 guns, concen
trated upon my left centre, continuing with
out intermission for abont thn-e hours, at the
expiration of which time he assaulted my left
centre twice, being upon both occasions hand
somely repulsed with severe losa to him, leav
ing in our hands nearly 3,000 prisoners.
Among the prisoners is Brig. Gen. Araistead
and mdny colonels and officers of lower rank.
The enemy left many dead upon the field and
a large number of wonnded in our hands.
The lot>s upon our side has been considerable.
Major General Hancockand Brigadier General
Gibbon are wounded.
After the repelling of the assault, indications
leadiiyg to the belief that the enemy might be
withdrawing, an armed reconnoissanoe was
pushed forward from the left, and the enemy
lound to be in force.
At the present hour all is quiet.
My cavalry have been engaged all day on
both flunks of the enemy, harrassing and vi
gorously attacking him with great success,
notwithstanding they encountered superior
numbers, both ol cavalry and infantry.
The army is hi fine spirits.
Gboeoe G. Meads,
Major General Commanding.
We have to add that unofficial, though re
liable, information to the same hour?8.30 p
m.?has also been received here. These va
rious accounts speak of yesterday's battle as
having been decisive, rendering Lee's retreat
apparently absolutely certain unless willing
to risk the annihilation of the remnant of his
army. Without being able to pronounce upon
the justice of this belief, wnich was general
last evening in onr army, we have to say that
all accounts bo far received here, otlicial as
well as unofficial, strengthen the hope of its
correctness.
Though our loss lias been heavy, especially
in officers, that of the enemy has been terrific,
evidently largely exceeding ours.
From the information befornuswe are not
prepared to "believe that Lee will venture to
renew a general engagement on this glorious
4tli of July, 1x53, if ne did not get into a lull
retreat for the Potomac some time last night?
with what is left of his army; the recollections
of the day, as well as of their great successes
of the two previous days, beijig such as while
they must doubly arm our gallant troops for
another day's terrific fighting, if Lee remains
competent to venture it, they must at the same
time operate 10 the signal disadvantage of the
rebels' possibility of success.
We need hardly add that, taken as a whole,
the terrific battles of yesterday and the day
before are victories for the glorious cause of
he Union worthy of the history and memory
of this sacred day on which tb^y thus become
known here.
The following are among the casualties re

[sscosn DISPATCH.)
A later dispatch has been received from Maj.
Gen. Meade, dated ate o'clock yesterday morn
ing, which fays :
??The action commenced again at early day
light upon various parts of the fleid. The
enemy thus far have made no impression upou
my position.
All accounts agree in placing the entire
Rebel army in position in our front. The
prisoners we have taken report that Long
street's and A. P. Hill's lorces were much in.
juTrd yesterday, and many General o Ulcers
killed. The dead body or Gen. Barktfdales of
Mississippi, is within onr lines.
??We have thus far about sixteen hundred
prisoners, and a small numer are yet to be
started."
[This number of prisoners, sixteen hundred,
is a# stated in General Meade's official dis
patch. He may possibly mean that they were
captured in the fight or Thursday night and
Friday morning, or the previous- statements or
correspondents may hav% been exaggerated.]
IMPORTANT FROM HAGERSTOWN.
REINFORCEMENTS FOR LEK MOVING FROM
WILLIAM^PORT VIA THE OLD GREEN
CASTLE TUENPIKE.
^ e have information trom Hagerstown a*
late as yesterday morning, to the effect that re
in fcrcementa for Lee were being hurried up
from Williamsport, via the old Greentastle
turnpike.
There is a report at headquarters that a con
| ei(3erable force of Confederate cavalry were at
Gum Springs, in Loudon county, yesterday,
' but the fact that Moseby's cavalry were at
Hagerstown on Thursday?of which we have
| certain information?throws doubt on the story
of the preeence of rebel cavalry in Loudon
county.
ROSECRANS' IMPORTANT SUCCESS.
The capture or the enemy's strong position,
ol Tullaboma, Tenn., and its full occupation
by our army under lioeecrans, oflicial uews
of which last event has reached here, is an
event or signal Importance?worthy,indeed, of
announcement on this glorious day.
It is the key to the possession of Ea?t Ten
nessee, and the point in front of Chattanooga
for which the two great armies in that region
have so long contended.
It necessitates that Braggs army shall quick
ly retreat to the fastnesses ol Chattanooga, re
leasing the large arms bearing Union popula
tion of East Tennessee to co-operate hereafter
most effectively, w? trust, with onr gallant
troops under Rosecrans.
LATE AND MOST IMPORTANT FROM
RICHMOND.
We have news from Richmond np to the day
before yesterday morning, when S50 Union
prisoners (taken from Milroy in the Valley)
left then on a flag of truce boat, to be ex
changed. At that time there were no rebel
troops there except the few manning the works
The citizens were being assembled every after
noon at three o'clock for drill. The fear ot
I>ix s rnmored approach was universal there.
Our informant, an intelligent and experienced
member of our q uartermaster's department,
estimates that, as new defended, the city will
easily fall, if vigorously assailed.
