' entertained an idea, that so complete might be the

Meanwhile, several little parties which had been

again; but that he had finally prevailed and that
Maxwell had retreated across ihe river. . A thin
''Vapor had risen from the earth below u and com
pletely covered the enemy from our view. It wa
no longer possible to follow him, except by the
sound uf his tread, which we could feel in the sol
id earth, jarring ourselves and our horses ; ind now
' and then a quick glimmering iu the midst, assume

Pulaski, whose war horse literally thundered and

not be countermanded. ' ' '
W'e on fell 'in with Ooneral Greco who was
posting all on lire, to give Knyphausen baiilo, and
the next moment saw Sullivan in full march over
a distant hill towards the enemies flank. This ar

Hardly had this happened, our horses being cov

excessively "hot and sultry day, when a heavy caa-
ponade was beard on our right Hunk, and urecnto

h wrs before. The truth now broke upon us like
a thundor-clap. The enemy bad passed, 'conceit-

inarched four, miles in. forty minutes. We held
on ur way in a cloud of dust, and met Sullivan
all iii disorder, nearly a milo from the ground, rc. .
treating step by step; at tlie head of his men, and
snouting himself hoarse, covered With Hood and .
