tment S. E. Missouri: sir: I have to report the following casualties, etc., during the expedition and fight which occurred at Belmont yesterday. Three men were seriously wounded: first sergeant Chas. M. Everett, musket shot in head; sergeant David F. Chase, shot in the arm; private Geo. Q. White, lost right hand and badly wounded in the face. Slightly wounded--privates C. R. Van Horn and Wm. De Wolf. Horses lost--three shot on the field. Horses wounded--two in the legs, several others srtunate, part of them being in the thickest of the fight all day, and only three or four wounded. Geo. Q. White had his right hand blown off, but is doing well. Orderly Sergeant Everett was struck in the back of the head, but is doing well. Sergeant Chase was shot through the arm — doing well. Two of our guns destroyed a famous battery of nine guns, called the Washington battery, from New Orleans. We brought off two of their guns, but had to leave two of our caissonbodies.

veral saddles were emptied, and Col. Croghan fell mortally wounded in the abdomen. The rebels, though surprised, showed fight and retired slowly, firing as they went; but our men having possession of the elevated ground on both sides, exposed them to a galling cross-fire, and forced them back. The main body then advanced, having, as before, strong parties of skirmishers. Col. Croghan was carried to the nearest house, and was cared for as well as the state of the case would admit of by Surgeon Chase, of the Thirteenth Ohio. He was a gallant man and an accomplished officer, and, though an enemy, the sight of his dying agonies drew tears from the eyes of men unused to weep. The colonel's father and Gen. Benham were old acquaintances, (in fact, I believe, classmates at West Point,) and the interview between them was, of course, unusually painful. We did all we could for the unfortunate man, but human aid was vain, and he expired the same afternoon. We brought down the body on our r
erpart to the gorgeous galleys with whose stately procession the Doge yearly wedded Venice to the Adriatic. Against these crumbling hulks the batteries which silenced Sumter point their guns in vain. They have taken counsel of the Romans, who declared that he is the most dangerous enemy who values not his own life, and has insured success by resolving on suicide.
