een provided for them at her own expense. This first company of Palatines was first landed on Governor's Island, New York, and afterwards settled near the site of Newburg, Orange co., N. Y., in the spring of 1709. In 1710 a larger emigration of Palatines to America occurred, under the guidance of Robert Hunter, governor of New York.

om I knew personally. The list of wounded is very much larger of course. At Savage's Station alone, I am told, four hundred have been taken, all the buildings about here having been filled to repletion. It is certain that the wounded are well taken care of. Major Russell is a relative of Gen. McClellan. He was an able, popular and efficient officer. Col. Pratt was reckoned among the most capable and trusty volunteer officers in the service. He is the son of Zadoc Pratt, Greene county, N. Y., which he represented two years in the State Senate. Col. Pratt was a man of fortune and of education, and had traveled extensively in Europe.
