To Brigadier-General Sweeny, Commander South-west Expedition: Having arrived with my command in Sarcoxie, twenty-two miles from Neosho, on Friday, the 28th ult., at five o'clock P. M., I learned that a body of troops under General Price, numbering from eight to nine hundred, were encamped near Pool's Prairie, which is about six miles south of Neosho. I also learned that Jackson's troops, under the command of Parsons, had encamped fifteen miles north of Lamar, on Thursday the 27th, and that they had re and reliable comrades on the battlefield. The excellent artillery under Major Backof, who, like my adjutants, Albert and Heinrichs, was untiring from morning till night in his efforts to execute and second my commands, also deserves honorable mention. I am, sir, with great respect, yours, Franz Siegel, Commanding Officer.

The whole column was under the immediate command of Major-General Lyon, while Brigadier-Generals Sweeny, Siegel, and Major Sturgis were intrusted with the most important subsidiary charges. The march commenced at five o'clock on the afternoon of Thursday. The baggage wa enemy in the direction of Sarcoxie, and the necessity of keeping open his communication with Springfield — called a consultation with Brigadier-Generals Sweeney, Siegel; Majors Schofield, Shepherd, Conant, Sturgis; Captains Totten and Shaeffer, when it was determined to retire toward Springfield. This conclusion seems to be well
l. E. D. Townsend:-- Gen. Lyon, in three columns, under himself, Siegel, and Sturgis, attacked the enemy at half-past 6 o'clock on the mornrice. Their tents and wagons were all destroyed in the action. Gen. Siegel left one gun on the field and retreated to Springfield, where, aompleted the column under Gen. Lyon. The second column, under Col. Siegel, consisted of the Third and Fifth regiments Missouri Volunteers,my's position. Here my official information of the movements of Col. Siegel's column ceases, as we have not been able to procure any writtenint about two miles distant, and nearly in our front, from which Col. Siegel was to have commenced his attack. This fire was answered from the firing ceased, and we neither heard nor saw any thing more of Gen. Siegel's brigade until about 8 1/2 o'clock, when a brisk cannonading wabattle.

s at Fredericksburg capture of Marye's Heights the battle of Salem Church successful withdrawal to bank's Ford the Brandy bottle in War The Army of the Potomac as reorganized under General Hooker consisted of seven corps, the First commanded by General John F. Reynolds; the Second, commanded by General D. N. Couch; the Third, commanded by General D. N. Sickles; the Fifth, commanded by General George G. Meade; the Sixth, commanded by General John Sedgwick; the Eleventh, commanded by Franz Siegel; and the Twelfth, commanded by General H. W. Slocum. All these were Major Generals and had won distinction in previous campaigns. It is safe to say that no army ever started out on a campaign better equipped, better officered, or in higher spirits than did the Army of the Potomac when, on April 27, 1863, it broke camp and began the Chancellorsville campaign. General Hooker's order to move was couched in terms of absolute confidence. He was certain of sure and speedy victory, so certain

able. As soon as daylight fairly broke we began to see evidences of the battle in men along the roadside who had run away from the battlefield the day before; and reaching Littletown we saw a great many men wearing the crescent, the badge of the eleventh corps; and some wounded men had reached there from the field. From them we learned of the battle, of the fearful loss of the First Corps, and the skedaddle of a part of the Eleventh, and the saying of one member of the corps, I fights mit Siegel but runs mit Howard, seems to have been verified in many instances on the first day at Gettysburg. We were rushed and crowded along, no time was given us to prepare anything to eat, and raw pork and hardtack was our bill of fare that day. Many men became exhausted and dropped down from fatigue in spite of the energetic efforts of the officers to urge them on. Orders were given the officers to shoot stragglers, and every man was impressed with the seriousness of the situation. As we approac

The first is for Bragg to strike Rosecrans at once and before Siegel can come to his aid, thereby depriving him of the great advantage heedily, there will, in all probability, be a repetition of Shiloh — Siegel arriving to aid Rosecrans as Buell did to aid Grant — and, though a is by reinforcing Bragg's army from Virginia. If Hooker can spare Siegel, Lee can dispense with Longstreet, and his army may be able to reacwill be no trifling matter. It is understood that two divisions of Siegel's advance are at Franklin, 23 miles distant, and that that place is<
