e 26th inst., receiving his death wound on the night of the 25th. Thomas is missed very much both on the field and in the camp; always cheerful and ready to obey every call, in fact he was the pet of the company. He was buried to-day. We left West Point on the 23d Sept. for Osceola, with four hundred cavalry, under Col. Montgomery, assisted by Col. Ritchie, the infantry under Col. Weer numbering one hundred and sixty. We passed through Papinsville, arriving there on the afternoon of the 23d, at two o'clock. On the morning of the 24th we left Papinsville, and took up the line of march for Osceola. We crossed the Osage within four miles of Osceola at ten o'clock on the night of the 25th. The enemy, hearing of our approach, attempted to dispute the crossing of the river, but were not in time, their pickets coming up just as we got over. They were driven back and five of them taken prisoners. Here a consultation was held, which resulted in the determination to march on and attac
eston. One night Gen. Wise, with a few picked companions, including the Richmond Blues and Mississippi Rangers, of the Second regiment, under Capt. Imboden, attempted to feel and ambuscade the enemy and drive in their outposts, killing three of them, the General himself lying down for several hours in a pitiless shower. Notwithstanding, all that could be ascertained of the enemy was that he was on the turnpike, probably from five thousand to six thousand strong. On the afternoon of the 23d, while the infantry and artillery of the Legion were rehearsing their part on the contemplated points of attack, the enemy suddenly appeared, driving in our pickets. The next morning the summit of the Big Sewell was whitened with his tents, and skirmishing commenced and continued till the evening. On our side two gun detachments of the artillery and three companies of the Second regiment of the Legion, of which Col. Henningsen is colonel, but in consequence of his having charge of the infan

His remains were afterward recognized by Captain Vaughn, of the Third Rhode Island battery, who crossed to the Virginia shore with a flag of truce on the twenty-third instant., and buried a portion of the dead.

Doc. 104. fight near Hodgesville, Ky., Cincinnati Gazette account. camp Indiana, October 25. early on the evening of the 23d instant, a company of fifty picked men, under command of Lieutenant Grayson, of the Indiana Sixth, left camp for the purpose of reconnoitring in the vicinity of Hodgesville, where it was reported a party of rebels had made repeated visits, committing depredations on the Union citizens of that place. Arriving at Hodgesville he learned from a Mr. Henderson that the rebels were encamped on a hill near a small place called Mud Run, some nine or ten miles further down the road. The whole party immediately set out for that place. After a fatiguing march of over three hours duration, through a drenching rain, and just as the gallant little band of Hoosiers were rounding a turn in the road, they suddenly came upon a party of rebels about one hundred and fifty strong, who immediately fired upon our boys that were in the advance, which consisted of Lieute

citizens in the vicinity. The loss in my brigade is one killed and one severely wounded, both belonging to Company I, First regiment Minnesota Volunteers. On the 23d, by the General's order, I directed further intrenchments around the white house, near the enemy's works. I also had the fences, yards, and lane barricaded and strengthened with logs, rails, old plows, wagons, and lumber. On the night of the 23d, about seven o'clock, the General ordered me again to proceed to the Maryland side and take charge of the crossing of artillery and more troops. On arriving, I started across four more pieces of artillery. A storm of wind, which had been prevailinplan being matured, the seemingly impossible enterprise was entered upon with a spirit and energy that knew no such word as fail, and between 9 o'clock P. M. of the 23d, and five o'clock A. M. of the 24th, every man, horse, and piece of artillery was safely withdrawn from the Virginia shore and landed on this side again without an
York world narrative. on board the Bienville, Nov. 12. one of the vessels attached to the great Southern naval expedition, and which played a most important part in the affair, was the United States steam gunboat Bienville; a steamer whose reputation for fleetness stood second to none in the service of the Government, and which, as you will perceive, held the post of honor throughout the engagement with the batteries at Hilton Head. I took passage on the Bienville, which left on the 23d, having in tow the Brandywine, which Capt. Steedman had orders to proceed with to Fortress Monroe. He arrived at the latter point at nine o'clock on the morning of the 29th, and met the fleet just on the point of coming out en route for its intended destination, which at that time was unknown to any one on board our ship. As I stood on the quarterdeck of the Bienville and sighted the noble vessels as they gallantly rode out one after another, I felt an enthusiasm, a faith in the might and p

Gideon Welles, Sec'y of the Navy, Washington, D. C. United States steamship Iroquois, St. Thomas, W. I., Nov. 25, 1861. sir: As I expected, I have to report the escape of the Sumter, to the great dejection of us all, for never were officers and crew more zealous for a capture. At eight o'clock on the night of the 23d, the signal was faithfully made us from the shore, that the Sumter had shipped to the southward. Instantly we were off in pursuit, soon at full speed, rushing down to the southern part of the bay, but nothing was visible on the dark background. A small steamer, apparently one plying between St. Pierre and Port Royal, was off the point making signals, doubtless for the benefit of the Sumter. But we could see nothing of her as we proceeded on, so dark was the shadow thrown by the high land
