movement to the right vvis attempted
with a view to gain the rar of No. 1,

were so much exposed to a file which
hey could not effectually return, and

the roof of a tannery, which looked di
ecily into ihe gorge of No. 1, and from
which he pointed a most destructive fire
into thai woik, and upon the strong
building in ils rear. The fire happily
coincided in point of time with the ad
vance of a portion of the volunteer di
vision upon No. 1, and contributed
hruelv to the fall of lhat strong and
