S.); Thomas Webster (Lds.)--U. S. S. Seminole. These men had passed through all the danger of battle, and had stood to their guns like heroes, and now, when they might hope to live and enjoy part of the honor won in this great victory, they were snatched from life or maimed forever by an infernal machine, which the officers of the Union Navy, as a rule, disdained to use — trusting rather to hearts of s

odless victory are great — about three thousand five hundred prisoners, among whom are Cols. Mulligan, Marshall, Peabody, White, Grover, Major Van Horn, and one hundred and eighteen other commissioned officers, five pieces of artillery and two mortaabody, consisting of several hundred Home Guards, a few Kansas troops, and a portion of the Missouri Eighth regiment, Colonel White, with seven hundred of the First regiment Illinois Cavalry, Colonel T. M. Marshall. These latter had preceded Colonecolumn, give a continued list of the killed and wounded as far as made up last evening. Among the lamented dead is Colonel White of St. Louis, of the Missouri Eighth, a gallant officer who did his duty nobly, and was mortally wounded in the last force of two thousand six hundred and forty men, made up as follows: Irish Brigade, Col. Mulligan,800 Home Guards, Col. White500 Thirteenth Missouri, Col. Peabody,840 First Illinois Cavalry, Col. Marshall,500 Upon the advance of Gen. Harr
ton, with instructions to report to me any movement of the enemy on the left flank, came on and reported a column of two thousand troops marching in this direction, with the evident intention of cutting off Capt. Templeton and Major Christopher. I immediately sent orders for the entire force to fall back on the main force, which they did in good order, bringing off their wounded — having two men killed, one taken prisoner, and three wounded. Privates Kent and Butler killed, of Company F, Capt. White; F. Spooner of the same company was taken prisoner. The wounded are Corporal Clark and private Richards--both seriously, Clark having been hit by four balls. Both will recover, but Richards has had his leg amputated. Private Hovey is slightly wounded; all of Co. D of my regiment. At this time you arrived on the ground and took command. Let me say that officers and men all did their duty, and I must be allowed to commend to your notice Sergeant Thompson of Co. D, who had command of
nds of Lieutenant Russell, Sproston, Blake, and Midshipman Steece, respectively, assisted by Captain Reynolds, of the marines, Assistant-Surgeon Kennedy, Assistant-Engineer White, Gunner Horton, and Midshipmen Forrest and Higginson. The whole force detailed consisted of about one hundred men, officers, sailors, and marines. The ntinued fire upon our men. In the mean time the vessel was set on fire in several places. That which finally consumed her was lighted in the cabin by Assistant-Engineer White, and a coal heaver, Patrick Driscoll, who went as a volunteer. She burned to the water's edge, and has since, while burning, been set free from her mooreir branch of the service, as they receive encomiums from all sides. Assistant-surgeon Kennedy rendered valuable assistance in the care of the wounded. Assistant-engineer White brought down from the cross-trees of the schooner a man who had been seen to fire upon the boats, killing him instantly. I enclose, herewith, a complete

The other man--Private Charles White, Company H, Twentieth regiment Indiana troops — was unfortunately drowned in the surf. regiment, who was captured by the rebels, but finally escaped: He says that privates Bennet, White, and himself were busily engaged destroying whatever they could, to prevent the enemy from gettir too long, and were captured by the Georgians. Bennet was shot dead in his attempt to escape. White and Haver were tied and put under charge of Capt. Wilson, of the Georgia Seventh. Toward sundowlight the following morning he succeeded in getting his hands clear, then released his companion White, and drew a small revolver that had remained secreted between his two shirts when he was disarmeem, they both plunged into the surf, and, while the boat was picking Haver out of the water, Charles White was drowned. Although a good swimmer, he was so exhausted for want of food, and by the exer

As soon as 1 arrived at the front, I directed Col. Ross to move forward his regiment into the cornfield in support of his skirmishers, and ordered up Lieut. White's section of Taylor's battery, which immediately opened fire, and by its effectiveness soon caused the the enemy to respond. Their artillery consisted of fourny other bodies had been found. I herewith append the reports of Cols. Ross, Marsh, Hovey, Baker, Lieut.-Col. Pennabaker, Maj. Schofield, Capt. Stewart, and Lieut. White, to which I would respectfully refer you for the operations of their respective commands. Before closing this report, I feel it but proper to revert to some
the command were worthy of the men they led. Of Colonel W. S. Smith, commanding the Thirteenth regiment, I have previously expressed my opinion, in my report of the battle of Carnifax Ferry; and all there stated was here more than confirmed. Colonel White, of the Twelfth regiment, who has recently been promoted, and made the most praiseworthy and successful efforts for the discipline of his regiment of fine men, did not behave less nobly than if he had been fully in most successful battle, by speed it, wherever it goes, and send it the good fortune it so richly merits. I subjoin a detailed list of the force now under General Benham's command, as possibly of interest to some of your readers: 13th Ohio, Col. Smith600 12th Ohio, Col. White500 10th Ohio, Col.

fairs. The messenger rode the distance, twenty-five miles, in two hours. Soon after reaching Cape Girardeau, five hundred men went down the river on the Illinois. The boat had not been long at Cape Girardeau, when Capt. Wm. C. Postal and Messrs. White and Lyle were arrested by order of the provost marshal, Capt. Warner, on a suspicion of disloyalty. They were given quarters at the Johnson House. A lady named Mrs. Brown, accompanied by a lieutenant of the Federal army, went on board the boat at Cape Girardeau. She seemed to be on terms of intimacy with Mr. White. His arrest may have been caused by the fact we learned soon after, that this lady's husband was in a rebel camp. She was overheard to say that she was travelling around to see what she could. A search of the rooms and passengers was instituted, and Mrs. Brown was seen to burn several letters. When asked why she did so, she said they were kind o‘ love letters, from St. Louis, etc. This was corroborated by the you

On Monday, December 23d, six companies of Colonel Glover's cavalry received marching orders for the next day, with instructions to take their camp equipage and four days rations. On the 25th they started, accompanied by Brig.-Gen. Prentiss and part of his staff, Col. Glover, Major Carrick, and Adjutant White being in command. They arrived at Sturgeon, on the North Missouri Railroad, at seven o'clock of the 26th, and half frozen — having made a forced march, in the face of a bitter cold wind, of twenty-eight miles, twelve of which being unbroken prairie, in less than ten hours. On his arrival, General Prentiss received information of the existence of a camp of rebels near a meeting house known as Mount Zion, about sixteen miles from Sturgeon. On the morning of the 27th, he despatched Capt
