ustained a greater loss in officers since its entrance into service than the 2d regiment of Virginia volunteers. Since its organization in April, 1861, it has lost no less than three field officers. The first Lieutenant-Colonel, Luckland, who distinguished himself at the battle of Manassas, died a short time after that engagement from disease augmented by exposure; the second Colonel, J. W. Allen, who fought gallantly under Jackson in the Valley, was killed on the field in the fight at Gaines's Mill, on Fridays the 27th; and the third, Major Francis B. Jones, received a mortal wound in the same engagement. Major Jones was brought to this city on the day succeeding the fight, where he has since lingered until Wednesday last, when his sufferings were terminated in death. Major J. was a native of Frederick county, and a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, and though of a delicate constitution, was among the first to offer his services to the Confederacy after the war broke o
That the enlightened public of Boston and New York may understand the magnificent conception and execution of this wonderful plan, I will make a brief statement. On the 26th of June I enticed across the Chickahominy the rebel Generals Jackson, Longstreet, D. H. Hill, and A. P. Hill, for the purpose of annihilating them, when separated from their reserves. The works at Mechanicsville, though very strong, were strategically abandoned that night to toll the rebels into my tolls around Gaines's Mill. No such magnificent design was carried out at Sebastopol. On the 27th instant, the rebels Longstreet and A. P. Hill attacked my works in front, and Jackson and D. H. Hill turned them on my right. We killed vast numbers of the enemy, and left a vast army of my wounded in his hands. Knowing the great lack of provisions and medical stores in the rebel ranks, I let them take a thousand of my well men and all my sick. My wounded, sick, and sound men, will add greatly to the distres
igade, proceeded to cut off the rebel force, and soon returned with six guns and some prisoners, the remainder making their escape. They were pursued some four miles. The success of this little skirmish had an electrical effect upon our men. The news was received with cheer after cheer, and the army stock immediately moved up one hundred per cent. Loss in killed, wounded and prisoners. A correspondent of the New York Times writes: In all the engagements, Mechanicsville and Gaines's Mill included, can hardly fall far short, or much exceed twenty-five thousand men. Our loss in prisoners is heavy, the enemy's cavalry making easy captives of thousands of stragglers, who lined the roads in our rear, and besides these, we have left thousands of wounded in their hands. Their loss must be at least as heavy, and probably heavier in killed and wounded than our own, but in prisoners it fell far short, though we have taken about two thousand from them. Included in our loss there
