Lieutenant Colonel R. R. TOWNES,

Assistant Adjutant-General, Fifteenth Army Corps:

COLONEL: I have the honor to report that this forenoon a work for two pieces was built near center of my First Brigade, and occupied by two 12-pounder Napoleons. They commenced shelling the rebel rifle-pits at 3 p.m. with effect, driving the rebels temporarily from a portion of their pits.

I am, respectfully,

W. A. GORDON,

Assistant Adjutant-General.
