resist, by any and every means, the admission of California, unless it came in with certain boundaries which they prescribed. The document was gotten up in Washington, and Colonel Parkhurst says it is the original contract. Dined with Colonel D. H. Gilmer, Thirty-eighth Illinois. Dinner splendid; corn, cabbage, beans; peach, apple, and blackberry pie; with buttermilk and sweetmilk. It was a grand dinner, served on a snowwhite table-cloth. Where the Colonel ootained all these delicacies I can not imagine. He is an out-andout Abolitionist, and possibly the negroes had favored him somewhat. Colonel Gilmer is delighted to find the country coming around to his ideas. He believes the Lord, who superintends the affairs of nations, will give us peace in good time, and that time will be when the institution of slavery has been rooted up and destroyed. He is a Kentuckian by birth, and says he has kinfolks every-where. He is the only man he knows of who can find a cousin in every
in close conflict with them. These three companies were detached as skirmishers, and were in advance of the regiment. We pursued the enemy three miles from the first position occupied by him, when night put a stop to our pursuit. All the officers present and all the men did their whole duty, and were only disappointed at not having a harder contest. My Adjutant, Lieutenant Bailhache, was acting as my Adjutant-General on the field, and deserves great praise for his useful services. Major D. H. Gilmer commanded the main body of the regiment, the three companies above specified being under my own direction. We, fortunately, have no killed or wounded in the regiment to report. I am, sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant, W. P. Carlin, Colonel 38th Illinois Volunteers. An eye-witness gives the following details of the engagement:-- Fredericktown, Mo., Oct. 22, 1861. We have met the enemy and they are ours. Illinois has made another impression upon the rebels of
and ammunition that Dr. Chase had here recruiting for the Tenth regiment, (J. Boheve's,) robbed the post-office of all its contents and all my clothing but what I had on my back, and a box of clothing for the soldiers, and took from J. L. Armstrong's store a considerable amount. I wish you would see if we could have a force to protect us here; if we can't we will have to let all go in this county, and all Union men will have to leave. The Rangers have all been driven in here from Calhoun, Gilmer, Wirt, and Roane, on to the head of the right-hand fork of Sandy Big Run and the left-hand fork of Mill Creek. When they came into town Dr. Chase took his men and went to Cottageville, and the arms he left he locked up in the jail. They took an axe and picked the lock and took them. Chase had gathered up all the arms in the country of different persons. There was but one or two guns in the place, and one of them I had with me. We are in a bad way here. Yours, respectfully, John H. We
