Noble conduct of the twenty-Third New-Jersey.--In the Sixth corps we have a New-Jersey
regiment, the Twenty-third, which has exhibited an extraordinary degree of patriotism truly commendable, and worthy of public acknowledgment.
Their term of service had expired, but just as they were preparing to leave for home, the order was received for the division to cross the river.
Their gallant Colonel
ordered out his command, and after forming them into line and telling them of the orders issued, he stated, notwithstanding their time
was out, he for one was going with the division, and desired to; know how many would go with him; every soul in the regiment answered Ay
! and they are now with a part of
the Sixth corps, over the river and under the very guns of the enemy.
This is truly a pleasing incident to record, and should receive the highest encomiums of all.--Philadelphia Inquirer, June, 1863
