After a brief consultation the post of honor and danger was given to Capt. Hunt's company, supported by the infantry under Col. Weer, to be followed by the artillery under Capt. Moonlight, and the cavalry under Capts. Williams, Veal, Stuart, Seamen, Clark, and Gibson. These companies were to bring up the rear. The programme being settled, Capt. Hunt's company took the advance, and moved forward, formed as skirmishers, or in single file, with orders to fall back on the infantry as soon as the enemy opened fire. We marched on in perfect silence, broken only by the tramping of the horses and the rumbling of the wheels of the artillery, until within a short distance of the town, when the enemy opened a tremendous fire upon Capt.

The pickets being fired on here during the night, we marched early the next morning, and arrived at Butler about eight o'clock in the evening. Here we learned that the notorious Capt. Lock (the same that lay in the Butler jail last summer for murder, and was released on the condition that he would kill Montgomery and Jennison) was five miles from Butler, sick. Capt. Hunt was detailed to go and arrest him, taking a guide. The company was dismounted when within a half mile of the house, the horses concealed in the brush: we then moved on quietly to the house, and after surrounding it, Lock was called for.

After breakfast was over, Colonel Montgomery, finding the boys filling their canteens with wildfire, ordered the same to be spilled. After spilling some five or six hundred barrels of different kinds of liquors, and loading all the wagons we had and could press, with such articles as the army was in want of, then burning the accursed place, we took up our line of march, meeting Gen.
