30. Fredericksburgh. by W. F. W. Eighteen hundred and sixty-two-- That is the number of wounded men Who, if the telegraph's tale be true, Reached Washington City but yester e'en And it is but a handful, the telegrams add, To those who are coming by boats and by cars; Weary and wounded, dying and sad; Covered — but only in front — with scars. Some are wounded by Minia acute;shot, Others are torn by the hissing shell, As it burst upon them as fierce and as hot As a demon spawned in a traitor's hell. Some are pierced by the sharp bayonet, Others are crushed by the horses' hoof; Or fell 'neath the shower of iron which met Them as hail beats down on an open roof. Shall I tell what they did to meet this fate? Why was this living death their dawn-- Why did they fall to this piteous state ‘Neath the rifle's crack and the cannon's boom? Orders arrived, and the river they crossed-- Built the bridge in the enemy's face-- No matter how many were shot and lost, And floated — sad corpses

It was the last to leave the field at the bloody fight at Gaines's d at the bloody fight at Gaines's Mill, and at Fredericksburgh led the charge of Zook's brigade, and laid its dead nearer the rebel works than any other regiment. In this charge Colonel Baily was wounded by a fragment of a shell which struck him in the breast, fracturing the collar-bone; but we are happy to learn that he is rapidly recovering, and that he will soon rejoin the Crazy Delawares, which he has so often led to glorious deeds on the field of battle.--Baltimore American, January 14.

families, and the last order they could not obey, because they lived so distant from each other and their absence would leave their families without protection. For these reasons they were considered Union men, and Captain Duff, a notorious rowdy, was sent against the settlers with a company of Texans. They asked the protection of their friends, but had to fly from the overpowering number of their enemies to the mountains. Many Germans and Americans were arrested and imprisoned in Fredericksburgh, and Captain Duff was reenforced by four hundred men to operate successfully against the German Abolitionists and hunt up the Yankees. The soldiers again visited Johnston's Creek, but found the most of the settlers had fled to the mountains. Frederick Degener alone they surprised, sleeping under the porch of his house, but awakened by the cries of distress of his wife and the discharge of the muskets of his enemies, who fired fourteen shots after him. He fortunately made his escape.
