attacked them and drove in their pickets and guards, and compelled the enemy to turn out his artillery ere he was checked. He then returned to Ba.dwin, and the brigade returned to camp near Booneville, having taken 6 prisoners. On June 4 Captain Patten First Ohio Cavalry, on outpost duty 4 miles west of Booneville, with Companies L and D, 48 men, was attacked by, and after a sharp action of three-fourths of an hour succeeded by coolness and discipline in repulsing, 250 of the enemy's caval Adamson, Newell, and Sergeant Rodgers, Company C, Third Michigan; Colonel Sheridan, Captains Alger, Campbell, and Godley, Lieutenants Nicholson, Weber, and Carter, Second Michigan; Major Rawalt, Seventh Illinois; Lieutenant-Colonel Smith and Captain Patten, First Ohio, have well and faithfully performed their whole duty, and merit the highest consideration from their general and their country. The following are the casualties sustained by this division from Apri 24 to June 6, 1862:
ion with trifling loss. Jackson fell back to the summit of Droop Mountain, when he was reenforced by General Echols with Patten's brigade, and one regiment from Jenkins's command. The position is naturally a strong one, and was strengthened by breaition, with trifling loss on either side. Yesterday morning he was reenforced by General Echols, from Lewisburgh, with Patten's brigade and a regiment of Jenkins's command, and assumed a strong position upon the summit of Droop Mountain, a position for our artillery. Nature could not have made a stronger position, and this they had fortified; and when the rebel Colonel Patten arrived, he stated that he could with his regiment, the Twenty-second, hold it against the whole of Averill's brigades of the war. The rebels were commanded by General Echols, and the forces engaged were the Twenty-second Virginia, Colonel Patten's regiment, who commanded a brigade, Fourteenth Virginia, Eighteenth, Nineteenth, Twentieth, Edgar's battalion, Derri
the party returned to Berwick City, reporting the country clear for miles around. At twelve o'clock M., the next day, (Saturday, April eleventh,) an advance was ordered. Williamson's and Perkins's cavalry were again in the saddle, skirmishing with the enemy all day. The following is the order in which the advance was made: Eighth Vermont, Colonel Thomas, extreme right; One Hundred and Fourteenth New-York, Colonel E. B. Smith, right centre; One Hundred and Sixtieth New-York, Lieut.-Colonel Van Patten, left centre; Twelfth Connecticut, Lieutenant-Colonel Peck, left wing. Williamson's First Louisiana cavalry was in the extreme advance, closely followed by skirmishers from the different regiments. Captain Bainbridge's First United States artillery, company A, and the Sixth Massachusetts battery, Captain Caruth, accompanied them. The enemy were seen all along the march, in small squads and singly, which thus compelled a careful advance and firing of the skirmishers at doubtful

Bonham, Governor of South Carolina, etc., etc.: Governor,—Your letter of the 24th inst. enclosing one from Colonel Waddy Thompson, and another from Messrs. Pullian and Patten, has been received. I have ordered a light battery to report at once to Colonel Williams, at Greenville, S. C. I regret as much as you do my inability to send mounted troops for the defence of that part of the State. It is not prudent to withdraw, at this critical moment, from my already too small forces a regiment of old troops from the defence of Charleston. So soon as it can be done with safety I will gladly send all the assistance in my power to Governor Vance. I remain, very res

, of remuneration, and then talk fine nonsense about her instincts and intuitions,--say sentimentally with the Oriental proverbialist, Every book of knowledge is implanted by nature in the heart of woman, --and make the compliment a substitute for the alphabet. Nothing can be more absurd than to impose entirely distinct standards, in this respect, on the two sexes, or to expect that woman, any more than man, will accomplish anything great without due preparation and adequate stimulus. Mrs. Patten, who navigated her husband's ship from Cape Horn to California, would have failed in the effort, for all her heroism, if she had not, unlike most of her sex, been taught to use her Bowditch. Florence Nightingale, when she heard of the distresses in the Crimea, did not, as most people imagine, rise up and say, I am a woman, ignorant but intuitive, with very little sense and information, but exceedingly sublime aspirations; my strength lies in my weakness; I can do all things without knowi

Infantry, and it continued in service in the trenches, under command of Major Patten. At Reams' Station, August 25, nearly all the members of the regiment were taken prisoners.

Taking part in the grand review at Washington May 23, it encamped near the capitol until its muster out on July 15, and, returning to Massachusetts, it received its final discharge and payment July 28, 1
