al and of so great importance in the hour of distress and common danger, I earnestly and kindly recommend that the officers of each regiment should form a military association, and meet regularly, to discuss all questions in relation to their common interest and the good of the public service. I need scarcely remark that we have to consider our special situation as military men, and have to respect Article 26, Army Regulations. That, besides this, such an association should not make it their object to substitute their proceedings to the provisions of Articles of War Nos. 34 and 35; but, at the same time, I refer to the fact that in almost all regiments of the militia such associations have existed and exist yet, and that they have been of the greatest usefulness to all commands by which they have been organized. Let us try whether we are able to stand as well the fatal effects of this winter season as we will stand the fire of our enemies. F. Sigel, Brigadier-General Commanding.
sire to retain in the service of our adopted fatherland, the eminent talents of a General who, by his energetic perseverance since May, 1861, probably prevented the secession of one of the brightest stars from the Northern constellation. General Francis Sigel--crowned with the twin laurels of the Old and the New World, Baden and Missouri--is a name which fills with irresistible power each patriotic heart, whether native or adopted, with the fullest confidence and most ardent enthusiasm. In Ju to read a long list of Vice-Presidents and Secretaries, who were accepted by the unanimous vote of the meeting. Mr. Hugo Wesendonck was next introduced, and read the resolutions, as follows: Whereas, it has been reliably reported that General F. Sigel has been superseded in the command of a part of the army of Missouri, and that he has been compelled, by systematic neglect, to tender his resignation; and whereas, it is the duty of all those who are well acquainted with his eminent abiliti
l, the time will soon come when you will pitch your tents on the beautiful shores of the Arkansas River, and there meet our ironclad propellers at Little Rock and Fort Smith. Therefore, keep alert, my friends, and look forward with confidence. F. Sigel, Brig.-Gen. Commanding First and Second Divisions. New-York Herald narrative. Pea Ridge, Benton County, Arkansas, March 9, 1862. The first battle in Arkansas since the outbreak of the rebellion has terminated favorably to the Union though seeking refuge behind the horses. When such acts are committed, it is very natural that our soldiers will seek revenge, if no satisfaction is given by the commander of the confederate army. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, F. Sigel, Brig.-Gen. Commanding First and Second Divisions. To Brig.-Gen. Curtis, Commanding Army of the South-west. A rebel narrative. The Richmond Whig of April ninth, contains the following account of the battle of Pea Ridge, which they call t
ry, and a squad of thirty Fremont hussars, to proceed a short distance on the road to Bentonville, and to guard that road. Arrived at Keitsville with the greatest portion of my command, I found that one part of the enemy had turned to the Roaring River and Bentonville, while others had turned to the left. I also received your order to return to Sugar Creek, which I did, and met the army on Sugar Creek, at four o'clock on the evening of the ninth. A list of the dead, wounded, and missing of this command has already been transmitted to you, and a special report, mentioning those officers and men of my command who deserve consideration for their conduct in action, together with the reports of the different commanders of regiments and corps, will follow to-day, as some of the reports have not come in yet. I am, General, very respectfully, your obedient servant, F. Sigel, Brig.-Gen. Commanding First and Second Divisions. To Brig.-Gen. S. R. Curtis, Commanding South-Western Army.
