Toe report of Lieutenant U C. vvhiirioo, of the eugloeors, aud temporarily aiuchod to my staff, who was loft behind to hasten the completion of tbe bridge, Is herewith transmitted. No better commentary on this culpable negllgenco is needed than is furnished by tbo record of our operation* in the vicinity of Ringgold. The town was distant Ave miloe. At daylight tbe pur lull was renewed?Osterbaua In tbe ndvance, Geary fallowing, aud Cruft in tbe rear Evidences of the : precipitate Qigbt of tbe enemy were everywhere appa | real; caissons, wagons, ambulances, arms and ammuni tion were abandoned In tbe hurry and confusion of re treat. After going about two miles we came up wiib tbe camps he bad occupied during tbe night, tbe Ores still burning. A large number of prisoners were also takeo before reaching the east fork of tbe Cblckamauga river We found lbs ford, aud also tbe bridge to tbe south of Ringgold, held by a body of rebel cavalry. These die charged tbeir arms, aud quickly gave way before a band ful of our moo, and were closely pursued into tbe town. 1 rode to the front on hearing the tiring, where I found Osierbant ont with bis skirmishers. Intensely alive to all that was passing, and pnabing on ward briskly. He Informed me that four pieces of artillery had just left the rebel camp, weakly escorted, and ran into tbe gorge, which be could have captured with a (mail force of cavalry. The gorge Is lo tbe eaal of Ringgold, and we were approncliing II from the west. A little firing occurred between our skirmishers as they entered the town and small parties of the onemy's cavalry and Infantry, tbe latter retiring in tbe direction of tbe gap. This Is ? break in Taylor's ridge of sufficient width for the river to flow, and on its north bank room for an ordinary road and a railroad, when the ridge rises abruptly on botb sides Tour or tlve hundred feet, and from thence, running nearly north and aoutb, continues unbroken for many miles. Covering tbo entrance to it Is a small patch of trees and under growth It waa represented by cltizeas friendly to our causo, and confirmed by contrabands, that the enemy had passed through Ringgold sorely pressed, his anlmali exhausted, and his army hopelessly demoralized. In a small portion or It only bad the offi cers been able to preserve regimental and company for mations, many of the men baviug thrown away tbeir arms. A still greater numbor were open and violent lo their denunciations of tbe confederacy. In order to gain time, it was the Intention of ibo rear gunrd to make use of tbe natural advantages the gorge presented to check the pursuit. Tho troops relied on for this wore posted bebiud tbe mountain and tbe trees, and tbe latter were also used lo mask a couple of pieces or artillery. Only a feeble line of aklrmiabers appeared lo sight. Tho only way to ascertain tbo enemy's strength was to reel >>r him and aa our success. If prompt, would bo crowned with a rich harvest of materiel, without waiting for my artilie ry (not yet up, though after nine o'clock), the skirmish ers advancod. Wood deployed bis brigade in rear of them, under cover of tbo embankment of the railroad, and a brisk muakciry Or* commenced between tbo skir mtsbera. IBB FIGHT AT TUB GOBCE?TUB ll.iXK MOVBXEKT? SIC 11 R8t> OAU.ANTBT or TUP IHOOI'S. At the same time tbe enemy kepi bta artillery busily at work. Their akirmisbera were driven in, aud, as we bad learned the position of then battery, the Thirteenth Illinois regiment, from the right of Wood's line, waa thrown forward to aelze some bouse? from which tbeir gunuera could bo picked off by our men. Those wore heroically taken and held by that brave regiment. Apprehensive that he might lose bia artillery, the cnomy advanced with a superior force on our skirmlsnars. and they fell back behind Wood'a line, when that excellent officer opened on tbe rebele ana drove them Iota the gorge, tbey leaving, aa tbey fled, tbeir dead and wowaded on tbe ground Our skirmishers at once reoccupted tbeir line, tbe Thirteenth Illinois all the time maintaining Ita position with resold tion and obstinacy. While this waa going on In front or tbe gorge, Osterbaua detached four regiments ooder Colonel Williamson, balf a mile to the left, to ascend the ridge aod turn the enemy'a right. Two of these, tbe Seventy sixth Ohio, supported by tbe Fourth Iowa, were thrown forward, and, of the enemy appeared In great force, whea they ha<l nearly gained the crest Geary ordered four of hi* regimenta atill further to the led, undor Colonel Creighton. for the same object, wbers they also found an overwhelming force confronting them Vigorous attacks were made by botb of these column*, to wbicb tbe troopa exhibited extraordinary daring and de votion. but were compelled to yield to numerical superi ority. The drat took shelter in a depression In tbe *ld* or tbe ridge, about lirty pares In rear of their most ad vanced position, and there remained. The oiner column waa ordered to resume its position on the railroad. All tbe parties sent forward to ascertain the eaemr's position snd strength wero small; hut tbe attack had been made with so much vigor, nod bad succeeded so well In lis ob ject. that I dee-ned It unwise local! uptbe commands or Calmer and Cruft and tho remaining brigades of Geary, to deliver a general attack, without my artillery i therefore gave instructions ror no advance to be made, and for Hie firing lo be discontinued, cxcept In aeir-defence These orders were conveyed and delivered lo every officer In commaud on our advance lino. Word was received from General Wood thai appearances in hi* front wars in 1 dic itive of a forward movement on the part or the enemy, when Ireland's brigade, or Geary's division, was sent to strengthen Ihem. < alhoun's brigade, or the same division, took a well sheltered position behind the knoll, midway between the depot aod tbe open lug to the gap. These officer* were also or dered not to attack or Ore unless It should become necessarv. / maw here state that th? prratett dijfi cutty I erpertrnct'l with m>i new commands, anil the one which raus'd me the m?ft solicitutb-. was to rherk and i ur> thrir disposition to 'nrjag', reyardUfS of rimunsfanrrs. and. it ap/?tired, alui'Kt, of consnjuenc's TbH bad also been tbecasefon I o Wout Mountain and on Missionary Ridge Despite my cmpbitlc and repealed instructions to the coutrary, a desultory fire wa* kept up on tbe right of the line'until lbs artillery arrived and you will see bv the report of commanders that, under cover or elevated ground between tny position and our right.several small parties advanced lo capture the enemy's battery and harass bis flank at the gap.

The artillery bad opened witb marked effect, the enemy'* gun* were hauled to tho rear, bi* troops seen moving, and, berore one o'clock, ho was in full retreat Williamson's brigade followed him over tbe mountain, while skirmishers from tbe Sixtieth and One Hundred and Second New York regiment* pursued bim through the gap Efforts were made lo burn tbe railroad brid.es; but the rebel* were driven from them, and tbe fires extinguished. tmk reused ABASnoxto?TA*rALTii#?emtBsC**! owu T10N9.
