General: I have the honor to report that, in pursuance of your instructions of the twentieth instant, I left camp at Pea Ridge at about seven o'clock P. M. of that day with the Second and Third brigades of my command, consisting of the Second, Siight of the twenty-first. At the latter place I halted until five o'clock P. M. at which hour my train, left behind at Pea Ridge, came up. having learned from my scouts, sent out during the day, that Cooper and Standwaite were at or near Maysville, of cannon, and drove him from the field. My last, under date of the twentieth inst., written on the battle-field of Pea Ridge, indicated that we were to march that night, the whole army, as I then supposed, under the command of Gen. Schofield, d followed Cooper and Standwaite, leaving Gen. Salomon, with his command, including Stockton's and Blair's batteries, at Pea Ridge, to keep open communication with the rear, protect the trains, etc. We marched from there on Monday night at nine o'clo
n the battle-field, and he has, on this occasion, added to the laurels won at Pea Ridge. In conclusion, General, let me say for the Second and Third divisions, thatill take no secondary rank, as compared with that of either Wilson's Creek or Pea Ridge; in fact, that history will record it as the battle, thus far, in the war of tion of the Union. Close upon the heels of the battles of Wilson's Creek and Pea Ridge, the Federal armies fell back from the fields of those actions. Now, the arm musket-balls, within those limits, to a far greater extent than they were at Pea Ridge. Such is the statement of Gen. Herron himself; and it was at Pea Ridge, as wPea Ridge, as will be remembered, that, wounded and taken a prisoner, he won the laurels that made him a brigadier. A most gallant soldier, and a true gentleman, he is worthy of etle. Across this valley, then, we witnessed an artillery duel, proving as at Pea Ridge, and all Western battles, the superiority of our guns and practice. This cou
well worthy of that honor. You have encountered and defeated the same men against whom we have so long contended in Missouri and Arkansas, and you have added another wreath to those you won at Blackwater, Blackwell's Station, Fredericktown, Pea Ridge, Round Hill, Hartville, Haines's Bluff, and Post of Arkansas ; and I am sure you will go on with your glorious achievements till tile demon of rebellion shall be destroyed, and our land shall once more rejoice in the blessings of peace and prosl picket, and returned it with great coolness. Sergeant B. Kinst, company E, Twenty-first Iowa, captured a rebel orderly carrying despatches. Sergeant Wm. R. Liebert, First Iowa battery, who was mentioned for gallantry and good conduct at Pea Ridge, was (with his piece) on advance-guard during the night-march, behaved with the greatest coolness and spirit, and was seriously wounded. In conclusion, I would say that you have done valuable service to your country; your friends at home wil
the murderous fire. At last night came and orders were given to withdraw. The men came back with clothes torn and dusty, and faces blackened with powder. They had lived years in those few hours. General Burbridge, the man to whom honor is dearer than life, came back with his brigade, his eyes glaring, and the perspiration standing thick upon his haggard face. General McClernand, of a nervous, sensitive temperament, seemed much depressed at the slaughter of his men. Carr, the hero of Pea Ridge, who had freely exposed himself all day, seemed the most cool and business-like man on the field. In the morning a soldier had cried out, Look at the men falling; he broke fiercely out: Who talks of (lead men here? Think of the enemy, and of killing them. It is no time to speak of (lead men now. General Smith is the oldest among the generals in years, and one of the most fiery and impetuous in disposition. In the bewildering chaos of battle men tell the incidents which strike them mos
