The regiment, under the command of Lieutenant-Colonel Wheaton, continued gallantly to hold its position. Soon after Colonel Martin, of the Seventy-first regiment New York State Militia, led his regiment into action, and planting the two howitzers breat. The Seventy-first regiment, New York State Militia, was formed between the retreating columns and the enemy by Colonel Martin, and the Second regiment Rhode Island Volunteers, by Lieutenant Colonel Wheaton. The First regiment Rhode Island Vol I then said of their gallant support of my brigade. I beg to again mention the bravery and steadiness manifested by Colonel Martin and his entire regiment, (Seventy-first,) both on the field and during the retreat. Col. Marston, of the Second New Keller, S. Shaublein, A. Ahr, supposed to be prisoners. Company D.--Killed-Privates Philo E. Lewis, William Chambers, Martin Donahoe. Wounded--Lieut. John Brady, Jr., badly in the wrist; Frank Paine, bayonet in leg; William Mackey, wounded in
re on the enemy. One of the Rhode Island guns was immediately disabled by a shot from the enemy, and was carried off the field. The Seventy-first lay there as ordered, when an aid from Col. Burnside rode up and asked for the field officers. Col. Martin then ordered us forward. Prior to this some of the Seventy-first had gone over to the First Rhode Island, and were fighting in their ranks. Boroughs, commissary of the Seventy-first, rode up in front of us, dismounted from his horse, and t did not learn, one of whom, I believe, was the surgeon of the West Point battery, were attending to the wounded of their respective regiments. Private Tyler, of the West Point battery, had his thigh amputated and died that night. Cornelius, Col. Martin's servant, who was wounded while assisting the colonel to dismount, also died. Mullen, Second Rhode Island, and two of the Seventy-first, whose names I do not know, were found dead next morning. Gen. Beauregard and Col. Barker came up abou

t.----? Washington! Washington! he shouted at the top of his voice, and dashed into the road, with another officer by his side. Washington was undoubtedly the rebel watchword. He and the men who then rose were attired in a costume almost like that of the Vermont Regiment, and for a moment Capt. Hammel and his men looked at them with surprise. The next instant, however, the white bands around their hats were discovered, and Capt. H. ordered his men to fire. The order was obeyed, Sergeant Martin picking the rebel colonel, and another by his side, both armed with Minie rifles, selecting the other officer. When they fired both rebels fell. The officer was shot in the left side, and the other apparently in the neck or head. The second officer had a gun in his hand, and in falling dropped it. Several rebels immediately sprang from the bushes and, seizing the officers and the gun, dragged all in with them, leaving the ground covered with blood. The firing continued about fifte
h the law. It has been decided by the Supreme Court of the United States that that act is constitutional, and that the President alone is the judge of the question whether the exigency has arisen. This decision was made in the celebrated case of Martin agt. Mott. The opinion of the Court was delivered by Judge Story. Let me read from the opinion of the Court: It has not been denied here that the act of 1795 is within the constitutional authority of Congress, or that Congress may not lalete attainment of the object. The service is a military service, and the command of a military nature; and in such cases every delay and every obstacle to an efficient and immediate compliance necessarily tend to jeopard the public interests. --Martin vs. Mott, 12 Wheaton's Reports, p. 29. We see, then, that the power is clear as to calling out the militia; we see that we have precedents for the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus. The next objection made is that the President had no
a party of secessionists, who were evidently taking French leave of the section. They scattered all but three or four, who remained — and probably will remain there till removed by their friends. In the Court House were found blankets, rifles, provisions, and clothing in large quantities. A large quantity of lead was recovered from a well into which it had been thrown, and, in addition, several horses and one or two prisoners were captured. Our loss was slight. Privates Wilthorne and Martin, Company D, Dragoons, were wounded slightly, and another man had a ball sent through his shoulder, and Capt. Stanley's horse was shot under him, and two other horses were slightly wounded. The secessionists lost five killed and ten wounded--among them was said to be Capt. Jackson. The command camped in the town Monday night, and Tuesday at noon commenced their march homewards, and will probably reach here by noon to-morrow. At Yellville, on the Arkansas border, there is said to be 1,000
