The force surrendered.

As soon as Jackson returned from the village, our entire force was mustered on Bolivar preparatory to stacking arms and delivering over generally. They comprised the following:

Twelfth N. Y. State Militia, from New-York,600
Thirty-ninth New-York,530
One Hundred and Eleventh New-York--raw troops,1,000
One Hundred and Fifteenth New-York--raw troops,1,000
One Hundred and Twenty-fifth New-York--raw troops,976
One Hundred and Twenty-sixth New-York--raw troops,1,000
Thirty-second Ohio,650
Sixtieth Ohio,800
Eighty-seventh Ohio--three months regiment,850
Ninth Vermont,806
Sixty-fifth Illinois,840
First Maryland Home Brigade,800
Third Maryland Home Brigade,500
Fifth New-York Artillery,267
Graham Battery,110
Fifteenth Indiana128
Phillips's New-York Battery,120
Potts's Battery,100
Rigby's Battery,100
Officers connected with Headquarters and Commissary Department,50
Scattering cavalry,50
Sick and wounded in hospitals,312

All of the cavalry, numbering about two thousand, under the command of Col. Davis, cut their way out Saturday evening, going by the road to Sharpsburgh, and capturing on its way, Longstreet's train, and more than a hundred prisoners. They comprised the following: Eighth New-York, Twelfth Illinois, Rhode Island and Maryland. They left at nine o'clock, crossing to Maryland on the pontoon-bridge. Rebel pickets fired on them as they passed by.

The artillery taken comprised the following:

Twelve 3-inch rifled guns.

Six James's.

Six 24-pound howitzers.

Four 20-pound Parrott guns.

Six 12-pound guns.

Four 12-pound howitzers.

Two 10-inch Dahlgrens.

One 50-pound Parrott.

Six 6-pound guns, and several pieces of “Fremont's guns,” of but little value. Seven of the whole number were thoroughly spiked. But few horses were taken, the cavalry having secured most of them. The Commissary Department comprised six days rations for twelve thousand men. This embraces nearly all the Government property which was surrendered.
