campaign, its losses at Manassas — including Chantilly — amounting to 14 killed, 85 wounded, and 15 missing.

r. Adams, and the mob went further in pursuit of their intended victim. The next house was the house owned and occupied by the Mitchells, and is still standing. A house owned and occupied by Gardner Ring stood on the corner of Marshall street. It was removed to make room for the Odd Fellows' building. A house owned and occupied by Asa Tufts, on the first corner of still another rangeway—now School street—came next. Farther up the hill, and near, if not on, the site of the house of Mr. Whitcomb, stood the Chester Adams house. It had been occupied by him, but at this time (1842) was owned and occupied by William Tufts, a farmer. Chester Adams was the father of the late Hon. James Adams, a prominent and much-respected citizen of Charlestown. Wyzeman Marshall, a well-known actor in his day, lived with Mr. Tufts in this house. The house is now located in the rear of Dr. Willis' residence, on the opposite side of Broadway. A house, new at that time, came next, owned and occupied
emy were coming up the river, which proved to be an armed schooner, probably sent to make discovery, and got aground, and continued so till the next tide. Had there been a single fieldpiece with the militia, she might have been taken; the marsh was too deep to approach sufficiently near to do any execution with small arms, and the first day's hostilities of the ever memorable American war, were, on their part, without a single piece of cannon in the field! After inserting the fact that Gen. Whitcomb was in this day's battle, Heath continues, as follows:— On the morning of the 20th, our General ordered Capt. John Battle of Dedham, with his company of militia, to pass over the ground which had been the scene of action the preceding day, and to bury such of the slain as he should find unburied. The assignment of alarm-posts, and feeding the assembled and assembling militia, are minutely described, and our General closes with the following observations on the battle: After speaki

tance. Of the men of Essex who formed Little's regiment, full a hundred and twenty-five hastened to the aid of Prescott; Worcester and Middlesex furnished more than seventy from Brewer's regiment, and with them the prudent and fearless William Buckminster, of Barre, their lieutenant colonel. From the same counties came above fifty more, led by John Nixon, of Sudbury. Willard Moore, of Paxton, a man of superior endowments, brought on about forty of Worcester county; from the regiment of Whitcomb, of Lancaster, there appeared at least fifty privates, but with no higher officers than captains. Not more than six light field pieces were brought upon the ground; but from defective conduct and want of ammunition, even these were scarcely used. A few shot were thrown from two or three of them; as if to mark the contrast with the heavy and incesssant cannonade of the British. At the rail fence there were, as yet, but the Connecticut men, whom Prescott had detached. The two field piec

lette, of the 71st New York State Militia, captured at Bull Run and lately released, has delivered a lecture on his captivity. He gave detailed statements of his treatment in the Richmond tobacco warehouses, and, says the reporter, "did not forget the tyrannical and traitorous conduct of Lieut. Todd, who seemed to be possessed of the spirit of a fiend in his treatment of them. He used to go through the prisons, sword in hand, and twice he cut down two men for the most trivial causes, Sergeant Whitcomb and T. D. Smith, of the First Michigan Volunteers.--Three prisoners were shot at the windows for looking out, viz: N. C. Buck, of the New York Seventy-ninth; C. B. Tibbetts, of the New York Twenty-seventh, and R. Gleason, of the New York Eleventh. Capt. George C. Gibbs, who took charge after the removal of Lieut. Todd, was a humane man, and allowed the prisoners every privilege, and did all he could to contribute to their comfort, consistently with his orders. A "United States Prisone
