rous quarters, when my attention was attracted to that portion of the woods where the Thirty-first and Thirty-second New-York State militia had entered. Four men were carrying the body of a man, which, upon inquiry, I understood to be that of Capt. Young, of company G, of the Thirty-second regiment, who was shot in the throat and died instantly. The fight had now been going on for three hours here without intermission, and a number of men were killed and wounded. At this juncture our men wer, wounded. Wm. Umphries, (private,) Co.

cked by a superior force, which compelled him to seek the cover of a brick house, which he defended in a most gallant manner, until he was apprised that further defence was useless, when he withdrew his command to Kansas City. The number killed, and who have since died of their wounds, amount to twenty-six. The wounded number thirty, comprising First Lieut. Vance and Second Lieut. Pence, both of the Seventh Missouri volunteer cavalry, who conducted themselves in a gallant manner. Second Lieut. Young and Second Lieut. Swan also behaved gallantly. The loss of the enemy could not be ascertained, as early in the action they commenced carrying off their dead into the country. From authentic sources, I learn that Colonel Hughes, Captain Clark, and the notorious Kit Childs, and a number of others were buried at Independence. Among the wounded of the enemy were Col. Thompson, Lieut.-Col. Boyd, and, fatally, Major Hart, etc. J. T. Buell, Lieut.-Col. Seventh Missouri Volunteer Cavalr

Lieutenant-Colonel Young had now thrown his regiment into line, at a double-quick, over a high fence, and was marching steadily to the frant Texans and Georgians, dropping every thing, took the back-track and made a most inglorious and dastardly flight. Colonel Young was immediately on the ground they had occupied, and found it strewn with saddles, navy revolvers, shot-guns, a few rrty horses were taken and disabled. Among the captured horses were the General's and his brother's, Captain Forrest. Colonel Young now rides the General's horse, and Colonel Buell the Captain's. The casualties were few, and all on the side of the e

The sight of that obnoxious person so inflamed the people, that in a few minutes above 160 horsemen were drawn up and proceeding in pursuit of him on the full gallop. Capt. Gardner of Cambridge first began a parley with one of the foremost, which caused them to halt till he delivered his mind very fully in dissuasion of the pursuit, and was seconded by Mr. Deavens of Charlestown, and Dr. Young of Boston. They generally observed that the object of the Body's attention, that day, seemed to be the resignation of unconstitutional counsellors, and that it might introduce confusion into the proceedings of the day if any thing else was brought upon the carpet till that important business was finished; and in a little time the gentlemen dismounted their horses and returned to the body.
