One hundred and thirty of the regiment were killed, wounded and missing. Killed: Maj. Miller, of the 4th Kentucky, and Captain Mitchell, of the 5th Kentucky. Wounded: Capt. Desha, 5th Kentucky; Capt.

Harvey, and stealing forty pounds of lard, was convicted and sentenced to transportation beyond the limits of the Confederate States. Joe's value was assessed at $3,000. In this case, as in one of a similar character decided yesterday, some of the Magistrates favored hanging. Alfred Moss was examined on the charge of stealing eight pounds of thread, valued at $16, from the C. S. Clothing Bureau; but owing to the insignificance of the amount involved the case was referred back to the Mayor for settlement. The Court then went into the examination of Thaddeus A. R.
