ular service, shall be forty-five dollars per month and one ration, to be computed from the passage of this act. On the ninth of April, the House resumed the consideration of the bill. After debate, Mr. Sherman's amendment was agreed to. Mr. McPherson, of Pennsylvania, then moved to amend the proposed substitute by striking out the words the Surgeon-General to be appointed under this act shall have the rank, pay, and emoluments of a brigadier-general ; but after debate it was rejected. Mr. Wallace, of Pennsylvania, moved to amend by striking out the word regular, so that the appointments could be made from the volunteer or regular forces. The amendment was agreed to, the substitute reported by the Military Committee, as amended, was adopted, and the bill passed. The Senate, on the tenth, proceeded to consider the amendment of the House, and, on motion of Mr. Wilson, the Senate disagreed to it, asked a committee of conference, and Mr. Wilson, Mr. Lane, of Indiana, and Mr. Nesmit

Gege; men never did their duty more thoroughly. My position being in the centre, I appointed Captain Wallace to superintend the operation of the left wing, and Captain Leitner the three companies on tgiment of that gallant bearing which he has exhibited on so many fields. Of the conduct of Captain Wallace, acting as field officer, I cannot speak too highly; he elicited the highest admiration, an duty. Captains Pulliam, Moore, Cunningham, Graham, and Lieutenants Maxwell, Brown, Perry, and Wallace, commanding companies, and their lieutenants, all acted with conspicuous bravery, and deserve mfor the gallant and prompt execution of all orders extended by him ; Surgeon James and Assistant--Surgeon Wallace; also the Rev. H. B. McCallum, chaplain of the regiment, for their skilful and assiduo
t. Some few in each regiment, becoming panic-stricken, fled to Nashville for safety. Captain Simonson managed his battery with skill and courage, and with it did good execution. He lost two guns, but not until the horses had been killed and the guns disabled. Goodspeed's battery lost three guns and quite a number of horses. This battery was handled well and did good execution, under Lieutenant Belden. After the capture of General Willich, his brigade was commanded temporarily by Colonel Wallace, of the Fifteenth Ohio, but was afterward commanded by Colonel W. H. Gibson, Forty-ninth Ohio. General Kirk becoming disabled was replaced by Colonel Dodge, Thirtieth Indiana, while the Third brigade was commanded by Colonel Baldwin. These four Colonels have demonstrated their fitness for command on several bloody fields, and are recommended to my superiors for promotion. Their coolness and courage rendered them conspicuous throughout the bloody engagement. Major Klein and his battal
symptoms of wavering, I ordered up five light rifle-guns, consisting of the Second Rockbridge battery, three guns, Lieutenant Wallace commanding, and a section of Hunt's battery, under Lieutenant Crenshaw, and directed them to open with shell, firinrst position, where I had left seven guns engaged, I observed that the fire had ceased. On inquiring the reason of Lieutenant Wallace, then in command, he replied that he had not men enough left to work the guns; that the enemy was advancing, and he as possible. A few minutes after I observed General Heth approaching when I informed him also of my situation. Lieutenant Wallace informs me that he saw the enemy roll off the guns by hand, in a few minutes after they were taken possession of. T. The five rifle pieces, which preceded Captain Rice in the action, were engaged probably an hour and a quarter. Lieutenant Wallace's three guns fired two hundred and four rounds. His casualties were two Lieutenants wounded, and two men killed an
ignment, which was quickly done; and being now informed by Captain Ryan that the Fifty-sixth Virginia regiment was on my left, I again ordered an advance, which was promptly obeyed by all; and soon the enemy was again driven from his position, and four pieces of Swartz's battery in our possession. The enemy continued to fall back, contesting the crest of every hill, until we had driven them over one and a half miles, and had possession of the ground occupied by the left of McClernand's and Wallace's division of the Federal army. The enemy had disappeared behind the crests of a range of hills about half a mile in our front, and in the direction of their transports. At this point I was ordered to halt my command and await further orders. In the meantime the brigade was furnished with ammunition (chiefly gathered from the slain of the enemy), the lines rectified, and the command brought to a rest; in which position we remained for a considerable time, until orders came for us to marc

Goodwin in command of the left, with orders to maintain the line, which was firmly held for nearly an hour, in the face of a terrible fire from musketry and artillery, when the charge, which closed the action, was made 13s in person by the Major-General commanding. It is the request of Colonel Thompson, that his entire approbation of the conduct of all the field and acting field officers engaged, and Captain W. P. Wallace and Lieutenant Charles Temple, Aids, and Acting Adjutant R. B. L. Soney, of the Third Kentucky, be specially expressed in this report. To the deportment of the Thirty-fifth Alabama regiment he desires attention to be called. This regiment, although for the first time under fire, on the fifth instant, proved itself a worthy comrade for the Third, Sixth, and Seventh Kentucky regiments, who in this action sustained the enviable reputation won by them on the field of Shiloh.
