the expedition, and who have received the commendation of the commanding general, were as follows: Lieutenant-Colonel C. C. Dodge, commanding. Major B. F. Onderdonk. Adjutant W. S. Poor. Company A--Lieutenant D. C. Ellis. Company B--Lieutenant W. H. Sanger. Company B--Lieutenant John D. Lee. Company C--Captain E. A. Hamilton. Company C--Lieutenant Louis Siebert. Company D--Captain James N. Wheelan. Lieutenant John Keegan. Colonel Dodge reports that the condition of the people along the route which he travelled is becoming deplorable. The crops appeared to be generally neglected, and he expresses a fear that much suffering must ensue from a want of supplies. The sentiments of the people he represents to be of a mixed character — a love for the Union prevailing, but the fear of future secession oppression preventing an open expression in favor of the Government.
