seen r.ite made of the sulking and gratify
iuy fict that no iii-tauee has occurred du
ring the war in which tuj enemy have
charged and eij turcd a Southern rield bat
tery. Ail the i.UG they haTe taken have
been those which wtf abandoned in eonse
cjuenee of their being dismounted, or the
horses bcin killed, or which have been
surrendered with a capitulating foere. It
i-; a iact that the enemy have never charg
ed ar.d enftured a Southern battery in po
sition. Ou the other hand, the capture of the
enemy's battel ice in position is a f.-at of
constant re etitKU. If the enemy advauce
a bntterv in line duriu a battle, tbe chan-
Cts are than even that they wiii be "our
