I would recommend to fill the vacancy, First Lieut. Edward K. Wilcox; for First Lieutenant, C. Wesley Goodale, now Second Lieutenant; and for Second Lieutenant, Joseph W. Lawson. The list of killed and wounded, in the engagement February eighth, was, in my regiment, as follows: Killed.--Corporal Geo. W. Hale; private Levi Clark, company F; private H. C. Bardwell, company G; private Wm. Hill, company B. Wounded.--Gordon M. Sweet, company A; G. M. Whitney, company B; Bart O'Connel, Oscar M. Loomis, company C; Hiram Sheffield, Otto Stamm, George Duncan, company E; First Serg. Pliny Wood, company F; Isaac Hunt, company G; Charles L. Clark, company I; Martin Kelly, company C. Company D was not in the battle, having been detailed to work the guns on board the propeller Ranger. Several others were slightly wounded. I think all of the above will recover. C. L. Clark, company I, was shot in the neck, the ball passing completely through, just behind the windpipe, He was reported

Kennett's cavalry, were formed in order, and marched s had gone away — the secessionists from the fear of the Union army, the Union people because they were frightened by Captain Loomis's shells. Those who remained, whether rebel or loyal, did the best, for neither class were molested, nor were their d men slain in battle. The retreat of the enemy's cavalry was not accomplished without some loss. A shell or two from Loomis's unerring ten-pounder Parrotts, burst among them before they got entirely out of range, killing and wounding at least a ide of the river, Col. Turchin ordered the cavalry and one battery ahead. The ranks opened to the right and left, and Capt. Loomis's battery dashed by in fine style, and reached Bowling Green about ten o'clock. We heard the cannon roar, and then we

Colonel Sill's brigade, with Loomis's famous battery, followed closely, the other brigades at a greater distance. The weather was cool, and beautiful for marching, on Thursday, but we had no turnct, worse than the former: a number of wagons upset, some broke down, and some stuck fast; but the troops moved steadily on. It was worth the looking to see Capt. Loomis's battery move over these roads. Neither mud, nor rocks, nor hills delayed them, but calmly, smoothly, majestically, they moved forward, a real impersonation of power. I was convinced, by observing them, of how much can be accomplished by foresight and care. The horses for this battery were selected mainly by Loomis himself, with great discrimination, and not one was admitted which was in the slightest degree weak or unsound. He has lost but two or three horses during the entire war
n, the men had evidently been drawn up in line of battle at the first alarm, but when it had ceased, they stacked arms, and were now engaged in eating supper. Capt. Loomis, when the force halted, stepped forward, saw the enemy, calculated the distance, and stepped back undiscovered. In a moment he had given his orders, the cany were deserted — a few dead and wounded alone remaining. The rebels fled with precipitancy, their speed increasing as they went, followed by the shells of Captain Loomis. They managed to fire the bridge, and a good portion of it was destroyed, but the half west of the island was saved by General Mitchel's personal exertions. ached the other shore, the rebels abandoned their camp and stores on that side, and, by the whistling of a locomotive, I imagine went off at railroad speed. Capt. Loomis continued to throw shells after them for several rounds, when, by order of Gen. Mitchel, he ran his two pieces down the hill, and placed them in position to re
