as did his company K, Ninth regiment Illinois cavalry. I must particularly recommend to your notice the conduct of Major Humphrey, Captains Cameron, Cowan, Blakemore and Perkins; Lieuts. Benton, Hillier, Shear, Conn, Butler and Smith, and First S, near Village Creek, with an escort of parts of four companies (K, M, D and C,) of the Ninth Illinois cavalry, under Major Humphrey. The farm is about five miles distant from Jacksonport, and when the train was within about one half mile from it, tck to the main body, where there seemed, by common consent, to be a cessation of fighting for some considerable time--Major Humphrey deeming his command insufficient to charge upon the enemy successfully, without sacrificing the lives of his men, whireturned, laden with corn, bacon, flour, vinegar, etc. Col.

I was struck with a rifle-ball in the breast, which sickened me for a time, but
