ion rendered me valuable services. I herewith submit the report of Captain McCloskey, commanding the Queen. He mentions favorably Captain Caines and Lieutenant Miller of the Twenty-first Tennessee, Lieutenant Doolan, adjutant of Major Burnett's battalion, Sergeant E. H. Langley, of the Third Maryland artillery, acting as lieutenant in charge of the two Parrot guns; and the volunteers, Captain J. H. White, slightly wounded, acting with efficiency as ordnance officer; Captain Tank and Lieutenants Fisk and Stanmeyer, both wounded, and Lieutenant R. R. Hyams, who as quartermaster and commissary exhibited much energy. As I was on board the Queen during the action, the conduct of the officers and men was under my own eye, and I cheerfully endorse the commendation of Captain McCloskey. He also speaks highly of the intrepid promptness and skill of his pilots and engineers, and of the conduct of Assistant Surgeon Blanchard, who manifested much care and coolness, coming on the gun-deck in
re dying around us, and day by day we saw them deposited in rude boxes, hurried forever from our sight. Once we relinquished our hope of personal deliverance, and determined to remain with our brethren, and, if necessary, die with them. Many who perished there were noble men, though they passed away unwept, unhonored, and unsung. We now concluded to continue our prayer-meetings in the hospital. In this work we seconded the efforts of the Rev. Mr. Rogers, Dr. Doke, of East Tennessee, and Dr. Fisk, of Illinois. We had not acquainted these gentlemen with our plans. Their names should never die, for Midst fawning priests and courtiers foul, The losel swarm of crown and cowl, White-robed walked these noble men, Stainless as Uriel in the sun. Their deeds of mercy were too many for record here. No circumstances too repulsive, no night too dark, no duty too onerous, but they were ready for every good word and work. Where suffering and pain were, there were they present to alle

ose term of service had expired, but who patriotically went to the assistance of Rosecrans. Meanwhile, the troops in the central portion of the State were concentrated at the capital, Jefferson City, by General Brown, who was re-enforced by General Fisk with all available troops north of the Missouri River. The Union citizens in that region cordially co-operated with the military, and before Price turned his face in that direction, the capital was well fortified. The invader advanced by wayopposers fell back, and the Confederates enveloped the town in a line semicircular in form and nearly four miles in length, the wings resting on the Missouri. Taking counsel of prudence, after looking at the defenses which the troops of Brown and Fisk and the strong hands of the citizens had thrown up in the space of a few days, the invader sent his trains westward, and followed with his whole army, leaving the capital untouched by his guns. General Pleasanton arrived at Jefferson City on th

Garner. outpost Purdy road, Miss., Monday [May 12, 1862]--10 a.m. General George Garner, Assistant Adjutant-General: The three companies under Lieutenant-Colonel Dennett I have relieved and brought in to this point this morning, and put pickets in their old places. There is a space of a mile and a half or so between my pickets, on the right, and those of Colonel Fisk, on his left, that I have directed Captain Harper to scout with his cavalry. I have not force sufficient to extend my pickets to meet his. I have here 800 men, and more than 300 of them stand guard every twenty-four hours. I have no reserve except those just off duty. I have nothing special to report of the movements of the enemy. I send copy of correspondence with Brigadier-General-------, had this morning. Not found. What shall I do in reference thereto? Respectfully, Wm. A.
f lie had only told us how many of them he buried, and how many wounded (or others) fell into his hands, he would have earned our gratitude. Bragg, per contra, says he had but 35,000 men on the field when the fight commenced, of whom but about 30,000 were infantry and artillery; and that he lost of these over 10,000, of whom 9,000 were killed and wounded. Among his killed were Gens. James E. Rains (Missouri), and Roger W. Hanson (Kontucky); and Cols. Moore, 8th Tenn., Burks, 11th Texas, Fisk, 16th La., Cunningham, 28th Tonn, and Black, 5th Ga. Among his wounded were Gens. James R. Chalmers and D. W. Adams. He claims to have taken 6,273 prisoners, many of them by the raids of his cavalry on the trains and fugitives between our army and Nashville; and lie estimates our losses at 24,000 killed and wounded, with over 30 guns to his 3. lie claims to have captured, in addition, 6,000 small arms and much other valuable spoil, beside burning 800 wagons, &c., &c. It seems odd that, after
busy making clothes for Rebel soldiers out of goods plundered by the guerrillas; women's tongues were busy telling Union neighbors their time was now coming. Gen. Fisk, with all his force, had been scouring the bush for weeks in the river counties, in pursuit of hostile bands, composed largely of recruits from among that class rson City; which Gens. McNeil and Sanborn, with all the men they could mount, had just reached by forced marches from Rolla: and these, added to the force under Gens. Fisk and Brown, already there, made a garrison of 4,100 cavalry and 2,600 infantry — generally twelve-months' men of little experience in the field, but capable of good service behind intrenchments. Fisk decided — the other Generals concurring — to oppose a moderate resistance to the foe at the crossing of the Moreau, 4 or 5 miles east of the city, and then fall back within the rude defenses which he, with the volunteered help of citizens, had been for some days preparing. Price crossed t<
under Quantrel, who have been committing so many outrages of late on the peaceful inhabitants of our State. Reliable information having been given to Col. Mitchell that Quantrel and his band were within some twelve or fifteen miles of our camp, after burning the bridge on the Little Blue yesterday, and killing two men, Col. M., with his usual promptness, immediately started with three hundred of our men in pursuit of them, in three separate divisions, taking command of one himself and Majors Fisk and Pomeroy the other two. When within three miles east of Little Santa Fe. from information from our scouts, we found they had ensconced themselves in a large log-house, owned by a man by the name of Tate. He being away from home, his house was taken forcible possession of, and his family compelled to supply their wants; however, Col. Mitchell has brought him in prisoner, in case it should not turn out to be correct. Major Pomeroy was ordered with the detachment under his command, a
ismounted and their whole force massed on the sides and top of the mountain, which were covered with scattered timber and but little underbrush. The nature of the ground was such that I could not use my artillery to any advantage. and the mountain could not be taken in any other way except by storm. I accordingly ordered up the the Kansas Second and dismounted them; they charged up the steep acclivity in the advance, under the command of Capt. S. J. Crawford and Captain A. P. Russell--Major Fisk having been wounded by a piece of shell early in the day; next followed the Third Indian regiment, (Cherokees) under the command of Col. Phillips and its other field-officers, Lieutenant-Col. Downing and Major Foreman, voluntarily assisted by Major Van Antwerp, of my staff, and the Eleventh Kansas, under the command of its field-officers, Colonel Ewing, Lieut.-Col. Moonlight, and Major Plumb. The resistance of the rebels was stubborn and determined. The storm of lead and iron hail that c
ance was now made on shore by the First Louisiana, Lieutenant-Colonel Fisk, along the shell-road leading to the Teche, from te former immediately formed in line of battle, and Lieutenant-Colonel Fisk advanced with two companies and deployed as skirmiinstantly followed by a sharp discharge of musketry. Colonel Fisk, with his command, was ordered to advance into the wood the latter advancing at the same time. At this time Colonel Fisk fell, wounded through the leg, and the men moved forwarIrish) Bend, on Grand Lake, and prepared to land. Lieutenant-Colonel Fisk, of the First Louisiana infantry, was the first tooad to the woods, at a right angle from the lake. Lieutenant-Colonel Fisk followed this road toward the woods, and when with, from which they opened a brisk fire on Lieutenant Colonel-Fisk's two companies. The fire was returned by our men, and therge into the woods where the enemy was concealed. Lieutenant-Colonel Fisk was wounded in the preliminary skirmish, and lost

Fredericksburg, Va., May 26, 1879. Brigadier-General J. P.

Louisiana volunteers, Colonel Fisk, and also of the Thirty-seventh Mississippi volunteers, during a brief period when under his observation. The Second brigade, Major D. Gober commanding, participated to a small extent in the action and behaved in a spirited manner, advancing with the line, without however encountering any great force of the enemy. Brigadier-General S. M. Walker, commanding the First brigade, speaks in high terms of the conduct of the Twentieth regiment Louisiana volunteers, Colonel Richard, and Thir
