t the First Ohio had exhausted its ammunition, I instantly prepared to take its place, but just before it reached my lines, to my utter amazement, a mass of the enemy appeared moving obliquely upon my right; a change of front was imperative. Whilst executing this movement, refusing my right to the enemy, the First Ohio passed through the right of my regiment and threw into great confusion my four right companies. Their officers promptly arrested this, and I here take occasion to thank Capt. John Lucas, commanding company F, First Lieut. Thomas Forman, commanding company A, First Lieutenant Joseph E. Miller, commanding company D, and Second Lieut. A. Sidney Smith, commanding company I, for their steadiness at this trying moment. In the mean time my left, getting into position, poured its fire into the steadily advancing columns of the enemy, but the troops to my left were giving way and the enemy, getting a battery into position, almost enfiladed me. The right of the division was com
unced upon it. Sending all the mounted men I could raise, the larger portion of the stock was taken from them. The Creek regiment refused to charge, or it could all have been saved. I sent forward Majors Foreman, Wright, and Pomeroy, with all the present available force, and as rapidly as possible moved every thing within the works. The enemy being strongly posted five miles distant, drove back Major Foreman and the others for some distance, although the ground was hotly contested. Captain Lucas, of the Sixth Kansas, was nearly surrounded, as was Captain Anderson, of the Third Indiana, but they gallantly cut their way through. Leaving Colonel Dole, with a strong command, and most of my artillery behind the works, I moved rapidly forward with two battalions of Indian infantry and a section of Hopkins's battery, under Lieutenant Bassett. Leaving one battalion as reserve, I supported the forces already in front, and soon drove the enemy into the woods. Here they contested the
iring on the left of the railroad, equally heroic actions were being performed on the right. Burbridge's brigade had been ordered to the support of Benton. Colonel Washburn, of the Eighteenth, shouted to his men: The Hoosiers are coming. Colonel Lucas answered, as with gun on his shoulder he led up his men: Here's your mule. Some of the Eighteenth had jumped into the ditch and could not get out. Smith ordered Burbridge to send two regiments from his right to the left, to which the answer the works, and for eight hours maintained the unequal contest. The Eighth Indiana had lost nearly one hundred men killed and wounded. Among the killed were three captains. Lieutenant-Colonel Jenks, of the Eighteenth, was mortally wounded. Colonel Lucas, of the Sixteenth, was hit twice, but not seriously. I have spoken only of the bravery of Indiana regiments, but from no disparagement to the soldiers of other States. In the divisions of Smith and Carr, not a regiment faltered or fell back

its conclusions would probably be sustained. In the section of Chemistry, a paper was read by Miss Helen C. De S. Abbott on the composition of a bark from Honduras that presents new and curious ingredients, of peculiar value to dyers. She also read a paper on the relation of the chemical constituents of plants to their forms and evolution, advancing the view that chemical considerations may yet have weight as a basis for botanical classification. In the section of Economic Science, Mrs. John Lucas, of New Jersey, entered a paper upon Silk Culture, but was not apparently present to read it. In the section of Mathematics and Astronomy, Miss Anna Winlock, of the Harvard Observatory, was associated by name with Prof. Rogers, of that institution, in presenting a paper on The limitations in the use of Taylor's theorem for the computation of the precessions of close polar stars. All this is very unlike anything that could have been reported twenty-five years ago; and though it is pos

and Weekly Register, Sept. 16, 1789: Gazette of the United States, Sept. 19, 1789; Massachusetts Centinel, Sept. 26, 1789 The tombstone of Major Sumner is in the centre of St. Paul's Churchyard, on Broadway. It is by the side of that of Major John Lucas of the Georgia line, who died the month preceding. Both stones,—lying horizontally, with hardly any space between them, and the two closing lines of poetry running across from one to the other,—were doubtless erected by the Society of the Cincinnati. That of Major Sumner gives his age incorrectly,—it being thirty-five instead of thirty-three. The inscriptions are as follows:— this tomb is erected to the memory of Major John Lucas, of the Georgia line of the army of the Revolution, and Treasurer of the society of the Cincinnati of that State. he bore A severe and lingering Decay with that Fortitude which ever marked his character as A soldier, and died in this city on Tuesday the 18TH August, 1789, aged 33 years.

the same display of weakness in his, but I should blush if I did not record that the tears of sympathy stood in mine; for the poor boy's grief was most eloquent.--I cannot detail the hundreds of other instances that I might name, nor have I the full list of the wounded. Among the many wounded at this place I find the following of the Fifteenth Mississippi alone, who have just given me their names: John Buckley, in thigh. John Goodrich, in thigh. B. F.
