The company is composed of most excellent fighting material, and distinguished itself at the battle of Bull Bun on the 18th of July last. A member of the company who was in the fight of Monday furnishes us with the following list of casualties sustained: Killed.--Capt. John Humphreys, privates Engene Fairfax, Francis Acbott. John P. Thompson. Mortally Wounded.--James H. McVeigh, Samuel Paul. Dangerously Wounded--John Swann; Hugh S. Hill, leg broken; James Stickrev leg broken; Charles McKnight, arm shot off; J. Conrad Johnson, wounded in the arm. John F. Addison, who belonged to the same company, who received a commission in the same regiment as 2d Lieut. three days before the fight, was also killed.
