evident that Johnston includes Hill's loss in that of Longstreet, who was in command of both divisions. at about 3,000; total, 4,233; saying nothing of any loss sustained by Huger.
Among his killed were Gen. Robert Hatton, of Tenn. ; Cols. Lomax, 3d Ala., Jones, 12th Ala., Giles, 5th S. C., and Lightfoot, 22d N. C.; while, beside himself, Gens. Rhodes and Garland, with Cols. Goodwin, 9th Va., and Wade Hampton, S. C., were wounded.
He also lost Gen. Pettigrew and Col. C. Davis, of S. C., and Col. Long, taken prisoners.
He claims to have taken 10 guns, 6,000 muskets, and several hundred prisoners — an expression which the number of our wounded who fell into his hands must have fully justified.
He probably took few others, and no officer of distinction.
Gen. McClellan reports our total loss at 5,739,
But in a confidential dispatch of June 4th, to the War Department, he says: The losses in the battles of the 31st and 1st will amount to 7,000.
Though this may have been an estimat

Vol. I., p. 388. that the XXXVIth Congress, after it had become Republican through the withdrawal of the representatives of the Gulf States, organized the new Territories of Colorado, Nevada, and Dakotah, by acts which maintained a profound silence with regard to Slavery.
The hope of thus winning a portion of the slaveholding interest to active loyalty in the approaching struggle having been disappointed, Mr. Arnold, of. Ill., submitted
March 24, 1862. to the next House a bill abolishing and prohibiting Slavery in every Territory of the Union; which Mr. Lovejoy, of Ill., duly reported
May 1. and pressed to a vote; ultimately modifying the bill so as to read as fo
, more comprehensive than the first; our cavalry advancing on both wings and, as the Rebel front gave way, charging fiercely upon their disordered ranks, and running them through Strasburg.
Our weary, famished infantry — whose rations and cooks had long since paid tribute to the enemy, or found shelter in Winchester — sank down in their recovered quarters to shiver through the night as they could.
Our loss in this double battle was nearly 3,000, including Gen. D. D. Bidwell, of N. Y., and Col. Jo. Thoburn , killed, with Gens. Wright (slightly), Grover, Ricketts, and acting Brigadiers J. H. Kitching and R. G. McKinzie, wounded.
Many of our men taken prisoners in the morning were rescued toward evening.
The Rebel loss was heavier, including Gen. Ramseur (mortally wounded, and died a prisoner next day), 1,500 prisoners, 23 guns (not counting the 24 lost by us in the morning and recovered at night), at least 1,500 small arms, besides most of their caissons, wagons, &c. In fact, Early
