Timothy Ingraham, captain; and James Barton and Austin S. Cushman, lieutenants,—all of New Bedford. This company left New-Bedford early on the morning of the 16th. Its departure was witnessed by thousands of citizens. Addresses were made by ex-Governor John H. Clifford and the Mayor of the city. The following is an extract from Governor Clifford's speech:— You, New-Bedford Guards,—guards of honor and safety to your fellow-citizens! We know, that, when brought to the test, you will be justi

All of these regiments were ordered to report to the Ag an army corps. Colonel Andrews was appointed brigadier before this letter was written; the date of his commission being Nov. 9, 1862. Eighth, Colonel Timothy Ingraham, of the Thirty-eighth Regiment, would be an excellent brigadier. He is now acting as such. He is a most constant, trustworthy, and reliable man, conscientious, and sure fire. Colonel Ingraham was detailed for a long time as provost-marshal at Washington, and brevetted brigadier-general Oct. 2, 1865. Ninth, I wish Major-General Hooker might be appealed to for his opinion of the propriety of nominating Colonel George D. Wells, of the Thirty-fourth, until lately lieutena

After it was mustered out of service, it assumed its place as part of the militia of Massachusetts. The Fourth Regiment was in the Department of the Gulf, and arrived in New Orleans Feb. 13, 1863. It was attached to the First Brigade, Third Division, commanded by Colonel Ingraham, Thirty-eighth Massachusetts Volunteers, and left for Baton Rouge, La., March 7. In the expedition against Port Hudson, this regiment bore a conspicuous part. After an absence of a week, it returned to the encampment at Baton Rouge. On the 3d of April, it again broke camp, and went down the Mississippi to Algiers, and thence to Brashear City, where it was ordered to remain with the Sixteenth New-Hampshire Volunteers, to guard the post which was the base of supplies for the army, whi

The sight appeared to excite no emotion among the crowd of teamsters and pedestrians who thronged the bridge. When I got to the end of the bridge, I inquired of the guard what the poor women had done that they should be thus treated, and was told that they had been loafing around the camp for two or three days. On my return to Washington, I made a statement of the circumstances to Colonel Ingraham, assistant provost-marshal, and he said he would have the matter inquired into. I have heard nothing more of this beastly outrage since. Two miles from the bridge, I came to Fort Baker, which was under command of Lieutenant Dame, Sixth Company; found there also Lieutenant Bumpus, of the Tenth Company, who is on staff duty. Next passed on to Fort Greble, where our Seventh Company had its headquarters. Part of it were also in Forts Snyder and Carroll. I next came to Fort Davis, whe
