Bm taking it altogether, it is/probably a« correct a narrative as we might expeet from such an author. Yet there art several errors or. misrepresentations, two only of which with yourindu;li?esci I shali notice-^the first as it respects the storming of the three gun battery, (as he calls it) on thfe right of our line He says, \ Ou the left,* detachment oi the 95th, 2tst, and 4th stormed a three gun batttery and jt«ok it. Here they re^ mained for some time in the expecta- tion of support•^•none arriving;, and a strong column, of:, the enemy foraiing for its rec t ovefy|the| determined to an ticipate the attaijk and push on. The batter^ which C-pey, bad taken was in advance of the body of the Works, be- ing out off from' it by a ditch* across which only a single plank was thrown. Along this did these brave men at tempt to pass rbiit being opposed by oyerpowering uumbiirs^ they were re ^uls.ed~and the AraericaDSi in turn, forcing their w*ay into the battery, at length succeeded in recapturing it with imineOse slaughter.\ The most; of the above statement is ineorreet.—- The three gun battery that he speaks of was a small unfinished bastion, erected an* the risjbt of the line, near the water's edge, having in it twe small fibIdl pieces i fob the express pur pose of raking the, ditch, should the enemy attaek us in a line.

Ranee : e in the act of raising it and the Yankees to surrender. calling to he was shot through the head by a pri vate belonging to the 7th infantry.— Neither was there,, as stated by the Wtiter, a strong column forming to re- take it, but it was retaken by the same eooipany who had left it t who ebarged upon them as soon as their eommand lug officer could rally them, under cov- er of a: company of volunteer riflemen, stationed on the extreme, right of bur line. In this affair the enemy had thirty one killed, I counted them my• self, having been detailed bjr the Adju- tant for that duty, and aboi^f as many oiore Wounded. Among the feilled of the British were two offi^e^s of dis- tinction, besides Col. Ranee, w hdrtt we buried ourselves. The second error I shall notice, is his representatioti of the engagement on the left of our lin'«> aad-jtfear the edge of the swamp; in speaking of i: he says, '•**• On the right jigain, (mean- ing their right but oar left) the 31st and 4th being almost cut to pieces, and ,ey Goods from Geneva to any part of thsown intofome confusion by ihe en- the western country, By this arrange^ amy's fire,fehiQ|d pushed on and took ment he is eniibled^ and will engage, the lead; hastenlflg iorward our troops to convey Goods from Albany to Gene- soon reached the ditch, but to scale the va from 12 to t4,U»EoChester from pa«*ai»et without ladderswas impossi- it,to 16,toBurftlftfr0m iBto isdavs, ble; feome few inde^djli/Counting up- and any other place fene same time , oil each other's sbouldefcsucceeded i« proportioned to the disjsoce,,'\ i eW*ring the works, but they *cr* »o His Boats ate in cbmblete order,' #«ntly overpowered, most of them kil- and earefiil and experienced Agents W \4 the rest tak0n, while a^many will attend at the dUfisftm* places to as *tood; without were #xpoied to a forwarding goods ijn the best possible ^^ping fire, which cut them down order, rlOrUCiSHfilcH. ,h# ^«# compauies.

General Carrol of Ten- nesses jeommaBded that part of the line where the enemy made the at- tackj and ordered his m^n to reserve the ir fire until they * had advanced to within a certain distance, when they opened upon them tuck a destructive tire of grape and cantiister, from a 82 tad is pounder, as well as from the musketry^ that their column wag lite rally out, to pieces. Seventeen Wert killed in the ditch (those I also count **d) and not a single man crossed the nreast work and was aftefewardf kii- ied It is a fact that the ditch in front of that part pfHhe line where the at-, tack was made was the shallowest of any;and that there was nothing ttf prevjint them from walking down one side of the ditch and ascending the. other without the aid of facines and : •sealing ladders, but the well directed- fire of infantry and artillery~instead of mounting upon one anothers shoul- ders, as the writer states, to cross the, battery, several not hurt, and near the breast work,- laid down among the wounded In order'to screen themselves, and were afterwards taken with them, md so Jar from our- men hiding their face* behind the ramparts,, it is .noto- rious, that at. least every five out ff{\ eight of the enemy thitt were killed| hX^ a rifle or musket baili was shot thro 5 the head. If they fell by the hands of men whom they did not see, it must have been because their agilat ion was, so great as to render theiii Nrc«pahte of seeing ; for oiir men were b^os^d frona the lower part of ilia breast UJK \fhree times did they endeavor' to *torm, and three times \v*r4*they're pulsed with great loss«r and it isjatlso. a' fact that this obstinate, courage spoken of by the British writer, wag a courage excited by a stt*ong dose of gunpowder and rum, acknoivledgedby some of the men to have been taken by them, and also found in the canteens of soine that werekilied» Even (heir fiflic«rs must liave thought a little of vhe same kind of stimulus necessary.; as tjiere were one pr two found to : be ititoxieated when taken prisoners.— Much more might be ss,id en the sub- [i|'<ct, but as I have already trespassed «ipon your patienee,I must conclude. A» AMERICAN OFFCEit: From the Southern Evangel* Inteli°-en - , BOLDNESS. Though I never expect to posseis much boldness and i4depency of char^ «cter, yef 1 eannot but highly admire this character in others. \ Bui I espe- eiiiiy admire it the^ ministers of, the gospel, though unhappily few minis ters in our days possess it* The fol lowing is an example worthy of imita- npn. Mr.—r-—, the Evangelist in the New-England'States, and who has been very remarkably successful in his labors, has often met with much oppo- sition, and still more ridicule. He wa« once preacMttg in,a town where there was considerable attention paid to the subject of religion, wljen the opposers agreed to have a Ball, and ehos© Mr. -^-^ their first manager. The evening^ artives-^-the par-^y as- seinbles--and, to their astonishment Mr among the rest. A*;they gave ihe joke, so they could not hut receive 'one.~- As Mr\..'.:•--r --. was the first, manager, he was requested to lead out the dance agreeably ,.f0ieiis*. t oin. the man of God replied, *• that he mad[e it a practice in all business, first to ^sk-the blessing of heavef on bis undertakings; and if it would he agreeablt to the company he wonld like to do so at that time.\ No ab- jection being made, Mr. —-~- propo- sedto \kneel as that was the most proper method to worship the Diety.\ The white pantaloons and bail dresses all kissed'the floor. M«. -—^- was very earnest and solemn , in prayer*- fer the •pirit of God was present. He arose; nothing more was said about dancing—a Bible was produced—the Ball became a Coijferene* -«tW$~. very many retired with aching • hearts— of whom / liiinibers became Clhristia^BS!
