Parker, Fourth Infantry, and Brevet Second-Lieutenant Frank A. Reynolds, Second Dragoons, members of the class just graduated at West Point, having tendered their resignations in the face of the enemy, are dismissed from the service of the United States, to date from the 16th inst. 2. Military Storekeeper and Paymaster, Dennis Murphy, Ordnance Department, is hereby dismissed from the army. 3.

of the enemy was in line, with a Secession flag and a Federal flag displayed together. This trick of the enemy caused me for a moment some uncertainty, fearing by some accident that a portion of our own troops might have got thus far in advance; but their fire soon satisfied me upon this head. I immediately opened upon them with canister from both pieces, in which service I am happy to be able to say I was ably assisted by Capt. Gordon Granger, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, and 1st Lieut. D. Murphy, 1st Missouri Volunteers. The next step in the progress of the battle was where the enemy tried to force his way up the road, passing along by their battery toward Springfield.

He immediately telegraphed to a lady friend, (he not knowing that his wife was in the city), that
