Col. Coggswell reached the Held amid the heaviest tire, and came gallantly Into action.with 1 yell which wavered the enemy'a line Lieut Bramball, of Banting's Battery, had suc:eeded, after extraordinary exertions and labor, n bringing up a piece of tbe Rhode liland Bat^ry, aad L.eut. French bla two howitzers, but >oth officers, after well-d rected firing, were soon >orce away wounded, and the pieces were hauled 0 the rear, so that they might not fail into the memy's hand At 4 p. m Col Baker fell at the heed of his collinn, pierced by a number of bullets, wblle beerlng his men, and by bis own example susaiulng tbe obstinate resistance tbey were making The command then devolved upon Col Lee, who >repared to commence throwing out forces to the ear, but It was soon found that Col. Coggswell vas tbe senior in rank, and be, taking tbe cmnnand, ordered preparations te be made for marbling to the left, and cutting a way through to Edward's Ferry But jus' as the first dispositions *-ere being effected, a rebel officer rode rapidly In rent and beckoned the Tammany Regiment to yard the enemy It ia not clear whether or not be Tammany men supposed tbls w?s one of our ifficers, but they responded with a yell and ibarged forward, carrying with them In their dvance the rest of tbe line, which soon received 1 destructive tire from tbe enemy at cloae distance. The meu were quickly recalled, but their new >ositlon frustrated tbe movement designed, and Jol Cogswell gave the necessary order to retire. I'he enemy pursued to tbe edge of tbe Bluff, over he landing place, and poured In a heavy fire aa >ur men were endeavoring to cro?s to the Islnnd i'he retreat waa rapid, but according to orders. The men formed near the river, maintaining for learly half an hour the hopeless eorUest rather ban surrender. The smaller boata bad disappeared, no one tnew where. The largest boat, rapidly and tooleavily loaded, swamped at fifteen feet from the Uore, and nothing was left to our soldiers but to iwim, surrender or die With a dsvotion worthy of the cause they were ervlng, officers and men,while quarter was being ffered to auch aa would lay down tbeir arm*, tripped themselves of their swords and mnskets ind hurled them Into the river to prevent their ailing into the taanda of the foe. and saved themselves aa tney could by swimming, floating upon ogs, and com eallng themselves in tbe bushes of he forest, and to make their way up and down be river bank to a place of crossing. Tbe Inttnce*|of personal gallantry of tb>- highest order .vtre so many tbat it would b? unjust to detail ^articular cases Officers displayed for their men, ind men for tbelr officers, that beautiful devotion vblch la only to be found among true soldiers While these sceues were being enacted on th<? ight, I w^s preparing on the left for a rapid push orward to the road by which the enemy w,,uid eireat if driven, and entirely unsuspicious of the leriioua condition of our troops. Tbe additional irtiilery hid already been sent, and wben tbe nesseiiger, who did not le<ive tb?* Held until after ; o'clock, was <juestloned as to Col Baker's posiI011, he informed me that the Colonel, when he eft. seemed to feel perfectly secure, and could loubtless Lold h's position In case be (bould not dvance Tbe same statement was made by anther messenger half an hour later, and I watched nxiously for a sign of advance on the right, In rder to push forward Gen Gorman It w^s, as a<1 been explained to Col Baker, impracticable a throw Gen. Gorman's brigade directly to the ight by reason of tbe battery in the woods, beween which we had never been able to reconolter. At 4 p m , or thereabouts. I telegraphed to Gen. tanks for a brigade of bis division, intending It d occupy the ground on this side of the river near lariison's Island, which would be abandoned In ase of a rapid advance, and shortly after, as tbe re slackened, a messenger was waited for on rhose tidings should be given orders either for b" advance of Gen Gorman to cut oil the retreat f the enemv, or for the disposition for tbe night 11 tbe position then held At 5 p m Cspt Candy arrived from the field nd announced the melancholy tidings of Col. laker's but with no Intelligence of any urtber disaster I Immediately apprlaed Gen tanks of Col Baker's deatb, and I rode quickly 3 the right to assume command Before a. r>vlng pposlte tbe Islaud, men who bad crosaed tbe iver plainly gave evidence of the disaster, and n r?acblng tbe same I was satisfied of It by tbe onrtuct of tbe men then landing in boats The reports made to n?e were that tbe enemy's jrce was 10,(100 men Thla I considered, as it roved to lie, an exaggeration Orders were then lven to bold the island, and establ'sb a patrol on tie tow-p-'.th frem opposite the island to the Une f pickets near the Monocacv, and I returned to tie left to secure tbe troops there from disaster, nd make preparations for moving them aa rapIIy as possible Orders arrived from Gen McClellan to hold be Island Virginia shore st Kdwarris' Ferrv at II risks, Indicating st tbe aame time that reinarcements would be sent, and Immediately aditlonal meana of intrenching were forwarded, nd Gen Gorman was furnished with particular 1 ructions to hold out against any and every force f the enemy Daring that time, Gen Hamilton with hla rlgade waa on the march from Darnestown. Be?re 1 left to go to tbe right, 1 Issued orders to itercept bim, and instructed him to repair to lonrad's Ferry, where orders awaited him to so lapose of bis force as to give protection to Harison's island, and protect the line of tbe river. >t 3 a. m. Major-General Banka arrived and took nmmand. A report of divlalon for the following daya will e made out speedily. I cannot conclude without ea'lng testimony to the courage, good discipline, nd conduct of all the troops of thla division doing the day. Those In action behaved like vetema. and tboae not brought into action showed that la^rlty and steadiness la their movements which roved their snxlety to engage the foe In tbelr nuntry's cause We mourn tbe loss of the brave eparted, <ie?d on tbe field of honor, if not of jeeess, and we miss tbe companionship ef those f our comrades who hsve fallen Into the hands of ur enemies. But all feel that they havs earned le title of soldier, and all await with Increased ontidence another measurement of strength with ae foe. Cbas P. Stops, Brlg-Geu.
