G. Asher of Lynn, Paymaster; Dr. B. B. Breed of Lynn, Surgeon; Warren Tapley of Lynn, Surgeon's Mate; John T. Cole of Lynn, Regiment Clerk. On the route of the Regiment at the Jersey City depot, an affecting incident occurred. Col. Monroe being loudly called for, appeared, surrounded by Gen. Butler, Quartermaster-General John Moran, Col. Hinks, and the rest of the staff. A. W. Griswold, Esq., a prominent member of the New York bar, stepped forward, holding in his hand a magnificent silk flag, mounted on a massive hickory staff.

Cole's command, consisting of some 150 men, left the Arsenal on a special train for their destination. They arrived at Potosi at 3 o'clock, A. M., on Wednesday, andst enthusiasm of the Union men and Government troops.

Totten had but to give them a few rounds before their heels were again in requisition, and Captain Cole and Miller, at the head of their companies, entered and took possession of the enemy's deserted breakfast tables. About twenty horses had by this time arrivuantities of ammunition, some fifty guns of various patterns, blankets, coats, carpet sacks, and two secession flags were included in the sum total.

Doc. 259.-Col. Boernstein's proclamation. Headquarters Capital, Jefferson city, June 17. To the Citizens of Cole County and the adjoining counties of Missouri: Citizens: I have been appointed by the commanding general command rof this place, with the view to extend my authority over Cole and the adjacent counties, in order to preserve the peace and tranquillity of all citizens, and assist the authorities in the maintenance of the Government and of the Union, the enforcement of the constitutional laws of the country.
