Kellogg, of Ill., Nixon, of N. J., and Woodruff, of Conn.] On the 10th, Mr. Clark, of N. H., proposed, and on the 11th the Senate adopted, the following: Whereas, a conspiracy has been formed against the peace, union, and liberties of the People and Government of the United States; and, in furterally and confidently expected that the Rebellion would soon be suppressed, leaving Slavery intact, it may be well to note some of the significant intimations which it elicited from the more conservative Republicans; as follows: Mr. Dixon (of Conn.) Mr. President, the Senator from Kentucky [Mr. Powell] has alluded to remarks of mine, and has said that I have declared on this floor, that, if it were necessary to abolish Slavery in order to save the Union, Slavery should be abolished. Mr. Pr
it on in triumph through the thickest of the fray. The bugle's note is sounding the summons to the fight, A gallant leader guides us, and God defends the right: We go to fight for Freedom, for the Union, for the Laws, And never gallant soldiers fought for any nobler cause, With the Stars and Stripes above us, with the prayers of those that love us, All ready, all steady, we're marching on our way: The foe will fly before us, and Victory hover o'er us, For Onward! Right Onward! is the Order of the Day. The call to arms has sounded on broad Atlantic's shore, We catch its echo from the land that gleams with golden ore; From every Northern mountain, from every Western plain, We come to clear our country's flag from every blot and stain. The laurels that have crowned it, the wreathes that hang around it, Won by our noble fathers on many a battle plain, No traitor's hand shall sever, but we'll battle now and ever, Till we bring the olden glory to the good old flag again.

aved with the greatest gallantry, as did his company K, Ninth regiment Illinois cavalry. I must particularly recommend to your notice the conduct of Major Humphrey, Captains Cameron, Cowan, Blakemore and Perkins; Lieuts. Benton, Hillier, Shear, Conn, Butler and Smith, and First Sergeant Clark, of the Ninth Illinois cavalry, and Capt. Williams, Lieuts. Madison and Ballou, and First Sergeant Miller, of Bowen's cavalry battalion. My thanks are due to Surgeon Jas. A. Brackett, for his care oey of the Ninth Illinois cavalry, Capt. Williams, and Lieuts. Madison and Ballou, and First Sergeant Miller, of Bowen's Missouri cavalry battalion; as also of Capts. Burgh, Knight, Cowen, Blakemore and Perkins, and Lieuts. Benton, Hillier, Shear, Conn, Butler and Smith; Battalion-Adjutant Blackburn, and Sergeant-Major George A. Price; and especially of First Sergeant Clark, of company K, Ninth Illinois cavalry. Dr. James A. Brackett, Surgeon of the Ninth, was promptly on the ground with all
e final withdrawal. Great credit is due for the efficiency and bravery with which this important arm of the service (the artillery) was fought, and it was not until the last successful charge of the enemy that the cannoneers were driven from their pieces or struck down and the guns captured. Dietrich's, Kauerhem's, and Grimm's batteries took position during the engagement in the front of Gen. Smith's line on the right bank of the stream, and, with a battery of siege-guns served by the 1st Conn, Artillery, helped to drive back the enemy in front of Gen. Porter. So threatening were the movements of the enemy on both banks of the Chickahominy that it was impossible to decide until the afternoon where the real attack would be made. Large forces of infantry were seen during the day near the Old Tavern, on Franklin's right, and threatening demonstrations were frequently made along the entire line on this side of the river, which rendered it necessary to hold a considerable force in p
