The Lake Erie sensation is over, and the
worst scared parties arc doubtless the
rebels, who have filled their Canadian
entertainers with an alarm worse than
that of Dame Partington when she saw

November 11,1663. { i
Gckesai.: X have the honor to submit here
with a report of the operations of this army 1
during the mouth of July, including details <
of the battle of Gettysburg- The report has '
been detained by my failure to receive the re- <
porta of the several corpe and division com- 1
venders, who were severely wounded In the
battle. 4
On the 27th of Jane, Ireccived orders from 4
the President, placing me in command of the 1
aimy. The situation of affairs was briefly as
follows: The Confederate army,commanded 1
by Gen. XL E. Lee, estimated at over 100,000
strong, all arms, hid crossed the Poto- 1
mac River, and advanced up the Cumberland
Valley. Reliable intelligence placed his ad- 1
Tance (Ewell’s corps) on the Susquehanna, '
between Hanisbu*g and Columbia Long- I
t tracts corps was at Chombersbarg, and Hilra ■
between that place and Cashtown. j
The 20th of Jane was spent in ascertaining 1
the position and strength ot the different 1
• corpe of the army, bat principally Is bring- 1
lug up cavalry, which had been covering the <
rear of the army In its passage over the Poto- 1
‘ mac, and to which a large increase had just !
been made from the force previously attach
ed to the defenses of Washington Orders 1
were given on tint day to make Gen. French,
commanding at Harper’s Ferry, mate with J
7,000 men to occupy Frederick and the line
■of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, and the
.balance of his force, estimated at 4.000, to
remove and escort the public property to
On the 20th the army was put In motion,
and on the evening ot that day was in posi
tion, its left ac Emmittsbuigh and Ua right at
New Windsor.. Buford’s division of cavalry
was on the left flank with Its advance at Get
tyebargh. Kilpatrick’s division was in front
at Hanoveis where he encountered this day
Gen. Stuart’s Confederate cavalry, which had
crossed the Potomac at Seneca Creek, and
.passing our right flank, was making its way
lowara Carlisle, having escaped Gregg’s
division, which was delayed in taking Its
position on the right flank by tbe occupation
of the roods by columns of infantry.
On the SO In, the right flask of the army
was moved np to Manchester, the left still
being at Emmitsbuigb, in the vicinity d
wblcu place three corps—the Ist, llth and
3d—were collected, under orders of M*j. Gen.
Reynolds. Gen. Buford having reported
•from Gettysburg the appearance of the
enemy on VneCuehtown road, in some force,
Gen. Reynolds was directed to occupy Get
tysburg. On reaching that place on the let
of July, Gen. Reynolds fouca Buford’s cav
alry warmly engaged with the enemy, who
b* a debouched hie infantry through, the
mountains on the Cashtown road, but was
belrgheld in check in a most gallant manner
-by Gen. Bufora’s cavalry.
Major Gen. Reynolds immediately moved
around the town of Gettysburg, and advanced
on the Cashtown road, and without a mo
ment’s hesitation, deployed his advance divi
sion and attacked the enemy, at the same tunc
sending orders lor the llth corps (General
Howard) to advance os promptly as possible.
Soon after m<Alag his dispositions for the at
tack, Major Gen. Reynolds fell mortaUy
wounded, the command ol the Ist corps de
volving on Major Gen. Doubleday, tad the
command of the field on Major Gen. Howard,
who arrived about th|n time, (1130 a. m,)
with the llth corps, then commanded by
Major Gen. Schurz, Major Gon. Howard
pushed forward two divisions of the llth
corps to support the Ist corps, now warmly
engaged with the enemy on the ridge to the
»?rt£ of the town, and posted his 81 division
with three batteries of arUlhsry on Cemetery
Ridge, on the south side ol the town. Up to
this time the battle had been with the forces
of the enemy debouching from the mountains
on the Cashtown road, known to he Hill’s
corps. In the early parr of the action suc
cess was on our side—wad»worth’s division
of the Ist corps having driven the enemy
hack some distant and capturing numerous
prisoners, among them Gen. Archer, of the
Confederate army.
Tbe arrival o! reinforcements to tbe ene
my on the Cashtown road, and the Junction
with Ewell's corps, coining on the York aud
Harrisburg roads, which occurred between
1 and 2 o’clokk p. M., enabled the enemy to
brieg vastly superior forces against both the
Ist and llth corps, outflanking our line of
battle and pressing it so severely that at
- *
about 4 P. M. Major 6*o. Howard deemed it
prudent to withdraw the two corps to Ceme
tery Ridge, on the sooth side of the town,
which operation wssfuccessfallyascompUsh
cd—not, however, without rcacsiderahle loss
in piisoncra, arising from the confusion Inci
dent to portions of both corps passing through
the town and the men getting confused in
the streets.
About the time of the withdrawal Major
Gen. Hancock arrived, whom 1 had dispatch
ed to represent me on tbe field on hearing of
the death of Gen. Reynolds. In cocjunction
withMnjrrGen. Howard, Gen. Hancock pro
ceeded to post troops on Cemetery Ridge
and to repel an attack that the enemy made
on our right flank. This attack was not, ho w
tvtr, very vigorous. The ene my, seeing the
fcticrgth cl tbe position occupied, seemed to
be satltficd with the success ho had accom
plished, desisting from any farther attack
this day.
About 7 P. M., Major Gens. Slocum and
Sickles, with tbe 12th corps and part of the
84, reecbod the ground and took post on tbe
light and left of the troops previously
Being satisfied, from reports received from
the field, that It was tbo intention of the en

Atllp in. of the lit, I broke up raybeid
qnailers, which, till then, bad been at Taney
tewn, usd proceeded to tbe field, arriving
there at la.m. of the 2d- So soon us it was
light I proceeded to inspect the petition oc
cupied, and to make arrangements for post*
log several corps as they should reach the
ground. By 7 a. in., the 3d and sth corps,
■with the rest ot the Sd, bad the
ground and were posted as follows: The
11th corps retained Us position on theceme-.
teiy side, just opposite to the town. Thclstr
corps was posted on the right of the 11th, on
an elevated knoll, cozmectaflbwith the ridge
extending to the Bo.qth and east, on which
the 2d corps was placed- The right of the
13th corps rested on a small stream at a
point where it crossed the Baltimore Pike,
and which formed on the right flank of the
13th something of an obstacle. Cemetery
Ridge extended in a southerly direction,
gradually diminishing In elevation till it
came to a very prominent ridge,
colled Bound-top, running east and. west,
The 2d and Sd corps were directed to'occupy
the continuation of Cemetery Ridge, on tue
left of theUth corps. Thesth corps, pend
ing the arrival of the Gtb, was held in reserve.
While these dispositions were being mide,
the enemy was massing hia troops on the ex
terior ridge, distant from the line occupied
by ua from a mile to a mile and a half.
At 2 p. m. f the Oth corps arrived, after &
march cf thirty-two miles, accomplished from
9 a. m., the day previous. On its arrival be*
irg reported, I immediately directed the s;h
corps to move over lo our extreme left, and
the Gth to occupy its place os a reserve tor
the right. About 3p.m. I rode out to tbe
extreme left to await the arrival of the sth
corps end post it, when I found tbatMojor
General Sickles, commanding the Sd corps,
i\ot lolly apprehending the iastruc'i jus iu re
gard to the position to be occupied, had ad
vanced, or rather was in the act of advancing
his corps a half mile or three quarters of a
mile in front of the line cf the 3d corps, on
tte prolongation of which it was designed
his corps rhould rest. Hayiag found Major
General Sickles, I was explaining to him that
he wi s tco f&r In advance, and discussing with
him the propriety ot withdrawing, when the
enemy opened upon him with several batte
ries on his front and his flank, and immedi
ately brought forward columns of Infantry,
end made a vigorous assault. The 3d corps
sustained the shock most heroically. Troops
from the 2d corps were immediately sent by
M*j Gen. Hancock to cover the right flame
of the Sd corps, and soon after the assault
commenced the sth corps moat fortunately
' arrived, and took position on the left of the
i 3d.
M»j. Gen. Sykes’ command immediately
sending a force to occupy Round-Top Ridge,
when a most furious contest was maintained,
the enemy making desperate but unsuccess
ful efforts to secure it. Notwithstanding the
stubborn resistance of the Sd corps, under
Maj. Gen. Blrney, Mnj. Gen. Sickles having
.been wounded earl? In the action, the superi
ority fn number of corps in the enemy ena
bling him to outflank its advance position,
Gen. Blrney was counseled to 101 l back ana
re-form behind, the line originally designed to
be held. In the meantime, perceiving great
exertions ou the part of the enemy, the 6th
corps (Mai. Gen. Sedgwick) and part of tbe
Ist corps (to the command of winch I had
assigned Maj. Gen. Newton) particularly
Lockwood’s Maryland brigade, together with
detachments from the 2d corps, were all
bronghtup at different periods, and succeed
ed together with the gallant resistance of the
sth corps in checking, and finally repulsing
tbe assault of tbe enemy, who retired in con
fusion and disorder about tnnset, and ceased
ary farther efforts.
On the extreme left another assault was,
however, made about 6 p. m. on the Uth
corps from tbe left of the town, which was
repulsed with the assistance of tbe troops
from the 2d and Ist corps. During the heavy
assault-upon our extreme lelt, portions of
toe 13th corps were sent os reinforcements.
Daring their absenre, tbe Roe on the extreme
i ight was held by a very much reduced force.
This was taken advantage by the enemy,who,
curing the absence of Geary’s division of the
12th corps, advanced and occupied part ot the
line. On the morning of the 3d, Gen Geary,
having r etumed daring the night, was attack
ed at early dawn by the enemy, but succeed -
rd In driving him bock, and occupying hts
fanner position. A spirited contest was
maintained all the morning along this part of
the line. Gen. Geary, reinforced by Wheaton’s
b'lgade,6th corps, maintained his position
»nd inflicting very severe losses on the ene
my. With this exception the quiet of the
Huts remained undisturbed till 1 p. m., on
ioe 3d, when the enemy opened from over
125 guns, placing upon our centre and
left This cannonade continued for over
two hour?, when our guns foiling to make
any reply, the enemy ceased firing, and soon
his masses ol infantry became visible, form
ing lor on assault on our left and left centre. 1
The assault was made with great firmness,
being directed principally against the point
occupied by the second corps, and was repell
ed with equal firmness by the troops of that
corps, supported by Doubleday’s division
acd Stannard’s brigade of tbe first corps.
During the assault, both Major-Gen. - Han
cock, commencing the left centre, and Brig.
Gen. Gibbon, commanding the second corps,
were severely wounded.
This terminated the battle, the enemy re
tiring to Ms lines, having the field strewed
with his dead aud wounded, and numbers of
prisoners fell into our hands. •
Buford’s division of cavalry, after Its ar
duous service at Gettysburg on the Ist, was,
on the 2d, sent to Westminister to refit and -
guard our trains. Kilpatrick’s division, that
vn the 28th, 30th and Irt had been success
folly engaging the enemy’s cavalry* was on
me 3d sent to onr extreme left, on the Em
mettsbnrg road, where good service was ren
dered in assaulting the enemy’s line and oc
cupying his attention. At tbe same time
Gen. Gragg was engaged with the enemy on
our extreme tight, having passed across the
Baltimore pike and Bonaugptown roads, and
boldly attacked the enemy’s left and rear. .
On the morning of the 4th. reconnolssance
developed that the enemy bad drawn back
hlalt ft flank, but maintained his position in
front of onr left, apparently assuming a new
line parallel to the mountain.
On the morning ol the sth, it was ascer
tained that tbe enemy was in fall retreat bv
the Fairfield and Cashtown roads. The 6th
corpe was immediately sent in pursuit on the
Fairfield road, and cavalry on the Cashtown
road, cud by the Emrnettsburg and Monte
rey Passes.
The 6th and Cth of July was employed in
succoring the wounded and burying tbe dead.
Major General Sedgwick, commanding the
C:h corps, having pushed the pursuit ot the
enemy as for os the Fairfield Pass and the
mountains, and reporting that the Pass was
very strong—one in which a small force of
the enemy could hold in Check and delay for
a considerable time anr pursuing force—l
determined to follow the enemy by a flank
movement, aud accordingly, leaving Mc-
Intosh’s brigade of cavalry and Nell’s
brigade of infaytry to continue harrowing
the enemy, I put the army In motion for
Middletown, and orders were immediately
sent to Major General- French, at Frederick,
to re-occupy Harper’s Ferry, and send a force
to occupy Tomer’s Foss, in Sonth Mountain.
I subsequently ascertained that Major Gen
eral French bad not only anticipated these
erdera, In part, but had pushed a cavalry force
to Williamsport and Falling Waters, where
they discovered tbe enemy’s "pontoon bridge,
ana captured its guard. Buford was at the
came tune sent to Williamsport and Hagers
town. The duty above assigned to the cav
alry was most successfully accomplished, the
enemy being greatly harassed, his trains de
stroyed, and many captures of guns and pris
oners made.
After halting a day at Middletown to pro
sure necessary supplies and bring up trains,
the army moved through South Mountain,
and by the llth of July, was in front of the
enemy, who occupied a strong position on
the heights near the marsh which runs la ad
vance of Williamsport. In taking this post*
tion several skirmishes and affairs had been
had with the enemy, principally by the cav
alry and the llth and Oth corps. The 10th
was occupied is reconnoissances of the ene
my’s position and preparations for on attack:
hut on advancing on the morning of the
14th It was ascertained that he had retired
the niehl previous by the bridge at
Fallinr waters and lord at Williamsport. The
cavalry in pursuit overtook the rear guard at
Falling Waters, capturing two guns and nu
merous prisoners. Previous to the retreat of
tbe enemy, Gregg’s division of cavalry was
crossed at Harper’s Ferry, *nd comluff up
with the rear of the enemy Charlestown
and Shepardstown, hod a sprinted contest,
in which the enemy was driven to .Martins
burg and Winchester, and pursued ana hor
raaacd in his retreat. - „ , :
Tbe pursuit was resumed by a flank, move
ment of the army crossing the Potomac at
Berlin and moving down tbe London Talley.
The cavalry were immediately pushed into
several passes of the Blue Ridge,' and having
‘ learned from servants of the withdraws! of
the Confederate army from the lower yaßsy
of the Shenandoah, the army (the 3d corps,
M*j. Gen. French, being in advance.) was mov
ed into Msnsasu Gap in the hope of being
able to intercept a portion of the enemy in
possession of the Gap, was disputed so success*
lolly as to enable the rear guard to withdraw
by the way of Suasbnrgh. The Confederate
aizny retiring to the Rapldtn. a position was
taken with toe army on the line of the Rap
pahannock, *M the campaign terminated
abom the close of July.
The result of the campaign may ba briefly
stated in the defeat of the enemy at Gettys
burg, his compulsory evacuation of Pennsyl
vania acd MaryJtod, and his withdrawal from
the upper valley of the Shecandoah; and la
the capture of 8 gnus, 41 standards and 13,Cil
prisoners; 34,0<y small arms were collected
on the battle field. Our own losses were very
severe, amounting, as will be seen by the ac
companying return, to 2,634 hilled, 13,709
wounded and C.C43 mßslng—in all, 23,18 G.
It Is impossible, In a report of this nature,
to enumerate all the instances of gallantry
and good conduct which distinguished such a
hard-fought field as Gettysburg. The report
of the corps commanders and their subordin

information upon this subject. I will only
add my tribute to the heroic bravery of the
whole army, officers and men, which, under

A very spirited skirmish with the enemy
occurred yesterday, about ten miles from the
Gap, in Virginia. A forage train of twenty
one wagons had been sent out with a guard
ot twenty-eight men. Tbe wagons were load

ance of danger, when suddenly a party of
seventy-five guerillas rushed from a con
venient ambush, overpowering the guard,
aud compelling a surrender. The officer’s

were rejoiced, but ten minutes after the cap.

At the suit of one Earless, P/esident of
Wabash, a writ of mandamus is prayed for
against Governor Tates, to compel him to
flic a copy of the Wabash charter with the
Stcretaryof State, as a law. Bat the court
has refused to allow the alternative writ pray
ed for by Earless ou the ground of the decis

The Late Erie Sensation Over—
No Rebels Found Ailoat.
[Special hlßpatch to the Chicago Tribane.]
Detboit, Nor. 18,1563.
The sensational hash up of news sent abroad
in the Free Frees was absurdly disproportion
ate to the state of feeling here. The wildest
rumors indeed temporarily prevailed, here as
elsewhere,'but carried with them their own
correction, as too ridiculous for credence-.
Well informed Canadians across the river
treated the rumors very lightly, and, notwith
standing the vaporing of rebel sympathizers,lt
is received by Intelligent men on both sides of
the river as true, that any overt act on the
part of the rebel refugees In Canada to make
war open the United States from that soil
will be followed by their immediate expul
sion by the Canadian Government, who will
deny them thenceforth the privilege of using
that ground as an asylnm. The dread of
tbiswill have a sobering effect upon these fu

relations with onr Government to be thus

We now hold all the ground in Culpepper

The rebel soldiers are well fed. Through
the new winter camps on the south side of
the Rappahannock, oar advance guard found
scattered about numeroustin cans, once filled
wi«b prepared meats andvegetables. and were
interested to find on them Baltimore and
New York labels. Lee’s troops are hard up
for shoes, clothing and leather, which are
economized. Lee’s purpose to winter be
tween the Rappahannock and the Rapidan is
fuither proven by their preservation of the
lallroad connecting the two rivers, but the
rebels, on their retreat across the Rapidan,
destroyed the railroad bridge which spans
that stream.

the ground where they fell.
Clark and Thoroughfare mountains are
again occupied as rebel signal stations, and
nearly every movement of Meade along his
entire front can be clearly seen from these
natural lookouts. The rebel earthworks at
Barnett’s, Rappahannock and Germania fords,
thrown up in October, are being enlarged and
strengthened, and their line of rifle pits ex
