hat the ashes of a great man, a soldier, a Texan, were on the way to their last resting-place, and that it was unrighteous to forbid the people to lament for their dead. It was pointed out to him that a soldier, who fell under his flag, was entitled to the honors of war. Federal officers had received them at the hands of the Confederates while the flames of civil war burned fiercest. Wainwright and Lea were so buried in Galveston. Colonel Baylor stated that he buried Colonel Mudd and Colonel Bassett with the honors of war. It was argued that a decent respect for chivalric usages could do no harm. General Thomas Green, an heroic soldier of the South, had been interred with these tokens of respect at Austin, without derogation to the Federal authority. Such arguments were in vain. General Griffin was inexorable. He affected to mistrust the statements that only a personal significance should be given to the demonstration. His sole concession was, that the body might remain at the
as Lieutenant Rogers, a favorite officer among them.--N. Y. Tribune. A soldier, belonging to Col. Catherwood's regiment, Sixth Missouri State Militia, named Donegan, was inhumanly murdered by bushwhackers, within gun-shot hearing of his father's house, from which he was returning unarmed to his regiment. Several outrages of this kind having occurred about this time in the neighborhood of Cameron, Missouri, Col. Catherwood detailed a scouting party of sixty men, under the command of Capt. Bassett, to ferret out the perpetrators. After four days ceaseless riding, they succeeded in capturing eighteen prisoners, twenty-nine Mississippi rifles, and three kegs of powder.--Missouri Democrat.

The last two were the men who launched the last boat. The steam gunboat Zouave, Capt. Wm. Hunt, of the coast division, sank this morning at her anchorage. She was used as a transport, and had on board a portion of the Twenty-fifth Massachusetts volunteers, who were removed, h
licit the privilege of going with us, as they say, to the land of freedom. Every plantation on the road has to pay tribute to the Yank, according to their stock, which is never very definitely ascertained, for time presses, and we come down on them like June bugs, cleaning them out of every thing in the line of forage, horses, mules, provision, etc. Tuesday was rainy, with sleet. We cross the north branch of the Chickahominy and Pamunkey rivers, and pass a large mansion belonging to a Dr. Bassett, whose darkeys all leave and become contrabands. This is at Ashland, and a sign-post shows us seventeen miles to Richmond. The railroad passes through this place, or rather it did, for we tore up the track for miles and burned the station. We now cross the south branch of the Pamunkey River, on a high bridge. My mules being weary, the General gave orders to destroy some of the load, which I did by throwing twenty-six boxes of ammunition into the river. After our forces had crossed,

sixty cars belonging to the Covington and Lexington railroad. By nine A. M. the rebels were all gone toward Georgetown. About one hundred and fifty shells were fired at them, but we have yet to learn of the first rebel being hit. The fight at Lexington was a bloodless one, no man on either side being killed. Several citizens were wounded — some by the rebels, some by our men — but none very dangerously. The heaviest losers by the robbers were J. G. Haws, $2,000; H. & J. P. Shaw, $1,200; Bassett & Emmal, $1,200; Loenhart, $1,800; Kastle, J. S. Edge and William Rule, all shoe stores, who lost stock ranging from $250 to $500 each. Harting's jewelry story was also robbed. Most of the money taken from the Branch Bank was special deposits, Mr. Prunket being the heaviest loser. Citizens were robbed of their pocket-books and watches, and horses suffered terribly; over one hundred were taken from F. T. Hord's stable. John M. Clay and William McCracken lost their fine trotting and racin

officers and fifty-two of the non-commissioned officers and privates were instantly killed or mortally wounded. The losses of the Second had been terrible: Captains Abbott, Cary, Williams, and Goodwin, and Lieutenant Perkins, were dead; Major Savage was mortally wounded and a prisoner; Captain Quincy and Lieutenant Millen were wounded and prisoners; Surgeon Leland (early in the action), Lieutenants Oakey, Browning, Grafton, and Robeson, were wounded; Captain Russell was a prisoner.

to the top of a hill, and drove the enemy from it, but came under a fire which was believed to be from Confederate ranks in the rear. This threw the line into confusion, and General Hood being wounded just as Robertson appealed to him for orders, the brigade was formed in the timber, waiting orders for some time. In the last charge some of the best officers fell: Captain Billingsley and Lieutenants Bookman and Killingsworth, of the Fourth Texas; and Lieutenant Stratman, of the Fifth. Captain Bassett took command of the Fourth after Bane was wounded, and on the evening of the second day he was severely wounded, the command devolving on Capt. James T. Hunter. Ed. Francis, color-sergeant of this regiment, was killed. Captain Cleveland took charge of the Fifth after Rogers fell, and gallantly led his men until wounded on the evening of Sunday, being succeeded by Capt. T. T. Clay. The killed and wounded of the brigade were reported at 78 officers and 457 men, and 35 missing. No com

a house, some fencing, trees, etc. Here a desperate struggle ensued, and here it was that Colonel Bane, whilst gallantly discharging his duties, received a wound which compelled him to leave the field (the command consequently devolved upon Captain Bassett). Here, too, fell the gallant Lieutenants Bookman and Killingsworth; also Ed. Francis, our color-sergeant, and many brave and gallant men. In driving the enemy from this position the fighting was desperate. As many as two individual hand-to other gallant men fell in this fight, and a number of men and officers were wounded. After our line was reformed a temporary breastwork was constructed. We were here exposed to a heavy fire from the enemy's artillery; and here it was that Captain Bassett, who had ably and gallantly commanded the regiment since the wounding of Colonel Bane, received a severe wound by a fragment of shell, which deprived us of his services. This closed the operations of the regiment in the two days fight. I
