ntucky, and Johnson and Polk, of Missouri, voting against it. In the House of Representatives, Mr. Blair, of Missouri, on the eleventh of July, reported from the Committee on Military Affairs, a bill to authorize the employment of volunteers, it being, with some slight modifications, the bill introduced into the Senate on the sixth by Mr. Wilson. On the thirteenth, the House resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole for its consideration, Mr. Dawes, of Massachusetts, in the chair. Mr. Allen, of Ohio, moved to strike out three years and insert one year, as the term of service of the volunteers. He thought that, if, at the end of one year, the triumph of the Government over the rebellion was a doubtful question, some change of policy might be required of the Government. The amendment was opposed by Mr. Blair, and rejected. Mr. Blair moved to strike out five hundred million dollars, as specific appropriations for the support of the army had already passed the House. Mr. Cox,

On the evening of Wednesday, May sixth, my column was again in motion, and camped that night in their old quarters near Grace Church, having been absent eight days, participating in the achievement of a signal victory, capturing fifteen pieces of artillery, ten flags, seventy-five thousand rounds of small-arm ammunition, and four bushels of musket-caps from the enemy. The small arms, ammunition, and the caps afterwards fell into the hands of Major Allen, corps ordnance officer, and Captain Marye, ordnance officer of Colston's division. It is worthy of remark that the enemy abandoned such a large number of knapsacks in retreating to his works, that when this division began its homeward march in the rain it was thoroughly equipped with oil-cloths and shelter-tents of the best quality. The division sustained a heavy loss in killed and wounded, especially on the second day. The conduct of its men and officers was such as to win the highe
gent and patriotic veterans. Their ranks had been thinned on many other fields, yet all were eager here to strike for the right as though there was no death, no suffering before them, but only their cause to serve. I feel it proper, in addition to those whose good conduct has been mentioned in connection with their wounds, to express my thanks to Colonels Porter and Field, commanding regiments, and their associate field officers, Lieutenant-Colonel Buford, Lieutenant-Colonel House and Major Allen, for their zealous and efficient aid throughout the engagement. Also to Major Maney, commanding battalion of sharpshooters, and Captain Bostwick, of the Seventh Tennessee regiment, who commanded the regiment with gallantry and ability after the fall of all its field officers. Lieutenant Turner, commanding battery, deserves especial notice for the effective and decisive manner in which his battery was commanded and served. I also mention Lieutenant Henry, of the battery, for his gallant
ry and captured two pieces.
