ee wounded and none killed, which, considering the long time we were under fire, is truly remarkable. Herewith I send a list of the wounded, and a report of Dr. Goodbrake, surgeon of the regiment. I have the honor to be, very respectfully, Your obedient servant, C. C. Marsh, Colonel Twentieth Illinois Volunteers To Col. J. B. Plummer, Commanding. Colonel Carlin's report. Headquarters 38TH Illinois Volunteers, Fredericktown, Mo., Oct. 23, 1861. His Excellency Gov. Yates, Springfield, Ill.: I have the honor to report to you that this regiment was engaged in the battle at this place on the 21st instant, and, like all our troops, displayed the greatest enthusiasm in our cause. The enemy retreated so fast that but three of our companies, Capt. Alden's, Capt. Rodrig's, and Capt. Young's, (commanded by Lient. H. Tyner,) came in close conflict with them. These three companies were detached as skirmishers, and were in advance of the regiment. We pursued the enemy three m

About one thousand persons were collected at the depot, and after he had shaken hands with a number of friends, he spoke as follows: my friends: No one, not in my position, can appreciate the sadness I feel at this parting. To this people I owe all that I am. Here I have lived more than a quarter of a century; here my children were born, and here one of them lies buried. I know not how soon I shall see you again. A duty devolves upon me which is, perhaps, greater than that which has devolved upon any other man since the days of Washington. He never could have succeeded except for the aid of Divine Providence, upon which he at all times relied.
