29. rallying song of the sixteenth regiment Iowa Volunteers. this song was written by a volunteer in the sixteenth regiment. He was a member of Captain Newcomb's company, and went from Dubuque.--Dubuque, (Iowa) Times, May 2. air--The Old Granite State. We have come from the prairies-- We have come from the prairies-- We have come from the prairies Of the young Hawkeye State; With our fathers' deeds before us, And their starry banner o'er us, For the land they rescued for us, We will welcome any fate. We have left our cheerful quarters, By the Mississippi's waters, And our wives, and sons, and daughters, For the fierce and bloody fight; But they will not deplore us, With the foe encamped before us, For the God who watches o'er us Will himself protect the right. chorus.--We have come from the prairies. From the dear Dubuque we rally, And the swift Missouri's valley, And to combat forth we sally With the armies of the free; Like the flood that flows forever, We will flee the ba
army, crossed the Rappahannock and the Rapidan above their junction, and took position at Chancellorsville, at the same time General Sedgwick crossed near Fredericksburgh, and stormed and carried the heights. A severe battle took place on the second and third of May, and on the fifth our army was again withdrawn to the north side of the river. For want of official data, I am unable to give any detailed accounts of these operations or of our losses. It is also proper to remark in this plaerse the interior of the State of Mississippi. This expedition was most successfully conducted. It destroyed many of the enemy's railroad bridges, depots, and much of the rolling. stock, and reached Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in safety on the second of May. On returning to Vicksburgh, General Grant found his forces insufficient to entirely invest the enemy's works. There was, therefore, danger that the two bodies of the enemy, under the command of Generals Pemberton and Johnston, might yet
to flight. This affair at the bridge detained the column but a few minutes. They marched all night; and crossed the Amite River about ten o'clock P. M., without opposition — the picket being asleep. They had marched forty miles this day. May 2d.--They marched again early in the morning, and the Sixth Illinois, being in advance, surprised and burned a rebel camp at Sandy Creek Bridge. At this point the Seventh Illinois was ordered in advance, and, at about nine o'clock A. M., as a crowning glory to this most extraordinary series of adventures, captured forty-two of Stewart's Mississippi cavalry on Comite River, including their Colonel. This noble band of toil-worn heroes arrived at Baton Rouge about noon of May second, where their triumphal entry created a furore of joyful excitement that will not cease till it has thrilled every loyal heart upon this continent — ay, every heart that loves liberty anil human bravery, through the civilized world. Some idea of the pluck an
Doc. 177.-the Marmaduke raid into South-east Missouri. Editors Missouri Democrat: I wish to furnish you a brief sketch of the Marmaduke raid into South-East Missouri, and the memorable retreat of his ten thousand confederates from Cape Girardeau into Arkansas, having been an eye-witness of every move made, for and against, from Saturday, April twenty-fifth, to Saturday, May second, when Marmaduke was driven into Arkansas, at Chalk Bluff, on the St. Francois River. I do this to vindicate the truth of history, that thus far has not received full justice by the reports that have been put in circulation. On Monday, the twentieth of April, General McNeil with one thousand two hundred men and six pieces of artillery, was at Bloomfield, Stoddard County, and found that Missouri had been invaded by Marmaduke, with four brigades, being the First army corps Trans-Mississippi department, C. S. A. At nine o'clock P. M., Monday, he received orders to move from Bloomfield on Freder
e part taken by my division in the action on the evening of the second of May: On the thirtieth ultimo we arrived near Dowdell's tavern, an which position we remained until about three the next morning, (May second,) when, pursuant to orders, we were moved with the brigade to oursir: In regard to the part my regiment took in the action on Saturday, May second, I beg leave to report: The regiment arrived with the brik-road. This work was completed about one o'clock A. M. of the second of May, when the Major, with his command, returned to the regiment. I of United States Ford at twelve, midnight. Soon after daylight, May second, we moved forward and crossed the Rappahannock at United States Fis time, I hope, that the First division, which gave way on the second of May, (because assailed in front, in rear, and in flank,) was that o the Potomac, May 8, 1863. To the Editor of the Press: On Saturday, May second, General Hooker's headquarters were at Chancellorsville. Th
he desire of a few of the rear-guard to obtain peach brandy, which the inhabitants deal out liberally, with a view, no doubt, to making captures. The day and night being pleasant, the command marched until half-past 3 o'clock Saturday morning, May second, when a halt was made at Greenwood, one mile west of Louisa Court-House. Here was reached the Central Virginia Railroad. Detachments were sent up and down the road for miles to destroy the track, culverts, and bridges, and also to act as peir support, when the enemy fled. The ladies, yesterday, along the road, assured us that we should have plenty of fight at Louisa Court-House. But like many other rebel boasts, the wish was father to the thought. At four o'clock P. M. Saturday, May second, the railroad having been destroyed for miles, and a number of cars and bridges — over Greenwood and Hickory Rivers — burned, horses and troopers well supplied with rations, the command was moved upon a hill to the east of the town, and th
The rebel steamer Nashville.--A letter from an officer on board the United States steamer Daylight, dated Beaufort, N. C., May second, says: The steamer Nashville ran the blockade on the twenty-fourth of April, and entered the harbor at Wilmington by Cape Fear River, (not by the new inlet, as before stated,) and got aground inside of Fort Caswell, having on board sixty thousand stand of arms, and forty tons of powder. They sent steamers from Wilmington and Smithville to lighten her, and succeeded in getting her off on the twenty-sixth, when she proceeded to Smithville, where she took in two lighter-loads of cotton, and ran the blockade out of the harbor on the thirtieth of April, and went to sea. --Boston Traveller, May 12.
ng toward Alexandria in disorder, and destroying the bridges in his flight. The same day the gunboats, under command of Lieutenant-Commander A. P. Cooke, assisted by four companies of infantry, captured the works at Butte á la Rose, which contained two heavy guns and a large quantity of ammunition, and was garrisoned by a force of sixty men, all of whom were captured. These works constituted the key of the Atchafalaya, and being in our possession, opened the way to Red River. On the second of May we established communication with Admiral Farragut at the mouth of Red River, through the Atchafalaya, by the gunboat Arizona, Captain Upton commanding, accompanied by Captain R. T. Dunham, of my staff. The fifth of May, our headquarters at Opelousas were broken up, and the troops moved for Alexandria, a distance of from ninety to one hundred miles, making this march in three days and four hours. Moving rapidly to the rear of Fort De Russey, a strong work on Red River, we compelled th

No. Xxvii.--The Bill to facilitate the Discharge of Enlisted Men for Physical Disability. In the Senate, on the twenty-ninth of April, 1862, Mr. Wilson, of Massachusetts, introduced a bill to facilitate the discharge of enlisted men for physical disability, which was read twice and referred to the Military Committee. On the second of May, Mr. Wilson, from the Committee, reported it back without amendment. It empowered the medical inspector general, or any medical inspector, to discharge from the service of the United States any soldier or enlisted man laboring under any physical disability which made it disadvantageous to the service that he be retained therein; and the certificate in writing of the inspector general or medical inspector, setting forth the existence and nature of such physical disability, was to be su
