Hazen's brigade lay down that night upon the ground it had so steadfastly held — the only brigade in the army that was not driven from its position. The honor had been dearly won. Lieut.-Col. Cotton and Capt. Todd, of the Sixth Kentucky; Lieut. Hart, of the Forty-first Ohio; Lieutenant Kesler, of the Ninth Indiana, and Lieut. Payne, of the One Hundred and Tenth Illinois, were killed, and eighteen officers of the brigade were wounded more or less severely. Col. Hazen lost his horse, shot under him, and received a glancing ball upon his own shoulder. Three of his staff were wounded, and Captain Cockerill, who had so bravely and efficiently served his battery, received a severe wound upon the foot by a solid shot.

The men so dismounted removed their saddles, placed them on some other led beasts, and pushed onward cheerfully. 23d.--They broke camp at seven o'clock A. M., crossed the Pearl River at half-past 4 P. M., and took refreshments at Squire Payne's. A glance at the map will show the importance of Pearl River. Knowing it to be quite high from heavy rains, and aware also that as rebel scouts had preceded them, it was of the utmost consequence to secure Pearl River bridge, Colonel Prince, who was in advance with the Seventh Illinois, pushed forward with energy, and, by very fast riding, succeeded in getting to the bridge and driving away a picket, before they had time to tear up more than a few planks, which were replaced in a fe
