oically, and justly deserve mention. I am greatly indebted to Lieut.-Col. Stoughton for his valuable aid; there is no braver man — he had his horse shot under him and was thrown with much force to the ground in the fight on Monday; and to Acting Major Heath, captain of company I, to whom too high praise cannot be given for his bravery and devotion to his duties. Adjutant Colegrove had his horse shot under him. Nor ought I to forget the bravery and devotion to their duties of our surgeons, Drs. Martin and Rerick; they were with the regiment at all times during the fight, caring for the wounded, and were exposed to the enemy's shot, and were both hit with balls. Lieut. Wayne and John Frampton deserve mention for their devotion to our flag in Monday's fight. I cannot refrain from giving expression to my admiration, and bearing testimony to the noble and heroic manner in which Gen. Hurlburt and yourself exposed your lives in your constant and unwearied efforts. Each of you was at a
some men in killed and wounded, but nothing positive respecting that is known. On our side one man was severely wounded. A Minie ball passed directly through his left arm, below the elbow, shattering it badly, and probably necessitating amputation. He was a private, named John Leonard, of Capt. Duffy's company A, and resides in New-Haven. After the gallant fellow was shot, he picked up his gun with his right hand, and leaning it on the stump of a tree, fired one more shot at the rebels. Drs. Gallagher and Avery, of the Ninth, are doing their best for the unfortunate man, and hope to save his arm. As the rebels fled they attempted to burn a bridge over a small piece of water, lying between their camp and the place of the skirmish; but our troops were too fast for them and prevented it. At about five o'clock in the afternoon, our troops reached Camp Suggville, (the name of the rebel camp.) There they found evidences of the most sudden departure. Dinners cooked and waiting t
en. Grant, his officers, and men. A Lieut.-Col. Brandon, of a Tennessee regiment, who was wounded in the battle of Saturday, had escaped to a point four miles distant, where he lay suffering from the effects of his wounds. Information to this effect was transmitted to Gen. Grant, who gave permission to the senior rebel surgeon here, attending to their wounded, to send assistance to the wounded man. Accordingly Dr. Griffin, the confederate medical director, detailed three surgeons, namely, Drs. Patterson, Westmoreland, and one other, to go to the relief of Col. Brandon, and Gen. Grant being deluded by the extravagant belief that these men had sufficient regard for the honor of their profession, if not for themselves, to return, they were suffered to depart without having been put upon their parole. These three inhuman butchers left in the afternoon, and, arriving at a house near Belwood Furnace, about one mile from where the wounded officer lay, they procured lodgings for the ni
ave said little of any but of our Second, both because it will answer the enquiries of Massachusetts readers, and because it had the hardest fighting. Its loss it cannot yet tell, as more are hoped to have escaped, who sank from sickness in crowds. But, as yet, the noble Major Dwight, as gallant an officer as ever lived, generous, beloved, who commanded the reserve of the Second, and with the most perfect composure and skill fought for hours, there is much reason to fear will never return. Drs. Leland and Stone are both prisoners. Capt. Mudge and Lieut. Crowninshield are both injured though not fatally. In all, fourteen are known to be killed, forty are known to be wounded, and one hundred and thirty are missing; as many have come in; there is reason to fear that, of the latter number, many are wounded and some dead. If we have felt sad that the Second has had no such chance as other Massachusetts regiments — now it has been tried. It has marched in retreat fifty-three miles

Orr, Seventh Kentucky cavalry, right arm. Mr. Purcell, Eighteenth Kentucky, abdomen. William Nourse, Home Guard, side, slightly. I am glad to say to the friends of the wounded, that we are well prepared to afford relief to all who are in our care. We have received marked attention and assistance at the hands of Drs. John Kirkpatrick, W. O. Smith, McCloud, and others, to whom we feel very thankful. Very respectfully, etc., John A. Lair, Acting Assistant-Surgeon Seventh Kentucky Cavalry. A soldier's report. The Pleasant Ridge, and the Cherry Grove Home Guards, of Bracken County, Ky., having received orders from Gen. Fennel, at five P. M. on Tuesday, forty-two men immediately started for Falmouth, under command of Capt. W. A. Pepper, and there received a despatch to report to Lieut.-Col. La
saved his life. Dr. York, surgeon of the Fifty-fourth Illinois, while passing through the Court-House, was approached by some one from behind, who took deliberate aim and shot him dead — the pistol being held so close to him that the powder burned his coat! So far as we could learn, Dr. York was not actively engaged in the affray, save in his professional capacity as surgeon, and in trying to restore order. A soldier, Alfred Swim, of company G, Fifty-fourth Illinois, was shot, and taken to Drs. Allen & Van Meter's office, where he soon died. Mr. Swim lived somewhere near Casey, ia Clark County, where he leaves a wife and three children. He is spoken of by all as having been an excellent soldier and a good citizen. William G. Hart, Deputy Provost-Marshal, was shot in several places — in the head and vitals — his wounds are probably mortal. James Goodrich, company C, Fifty-fourth Illinois, received a shocking wound — being shot in the bowels. His wound, we fear, will prove mort
l be obliged to go to Key West in a few days. Her officers and crew hope the rebel ram will come down before they are obliged to leave this station. Lieut. Commander Bigelow has been detached from the Sagamore, and our Lieut. Commander (English) has been ordered to the command. A flag of truce arrived from Apalachicola with a request that our naval surgeons should go up to the town and dress the stumps of some of the rebels who had their limbs blown off by the fragments from our shells. Drs. Stevens, Scofield, and Draper have volunteered their services as an act of kindness to our enemies. Apalachicola was once the largest commercial town in Florida; but now every thing looks desolate. A small rebel steamer comes down the river from Columbus, Ga., about once a week, and supplies the inhabitants with corn-meal, as this is about the only food they have to keep them from starvation. The rebels in this State have supplied the rebel army in Virginia largely with salt beef, so th
Monday, were placed in hospitals by the side of the road, about a mile and a half from the battle-field. The following surgeons were in charge, and nobly did their duty: Post hospital No. 1, Emory's division.--Dr. W. B. Eager, Jr., in charge; Drs. W. H. Hozier and E. C. Clark, assistants. Post hospital No. 2, Emory's division.--Dr. Robert Watts, Jr., in charge; Drs. Ward and Smith, assistants. Post hospital No. 1, Weitzel's brigade.--Dr. M. D. Benedict, Medical Director of the brigadDrs. Ward and Smith, assistants. Post hospital No. 1, Weitzel's brigade.--Dr. M. D. Benedict, Medical Director of the brigade, Chief Surgeon, Dr. George Benedict, Assistant. New-Orleans Era account. New-Orleans, April 29. We have not until to-day been able to obtain a full account from an eye-witness of the important part taken by General Grover's division in the severe struggle of the thirteenth and fourteenth instant. The fight took place near Irish or Indian Bend, between the Teche and Grand Lake, on the morning of the thirteenth, and culminated in the retreat of the enemy, and the destruction of t
spoken of. After night, I relieved, by order, Phillips's legion, of General Cobb's brigade, which was behind the stone fence before mentioned, in my late front. We held this position, with the wings doubled, occasionally exchanging shots with the enemy, until Tuesday morning, tenth instant, when I was ordered into the city on picket duty. We were relieved by one of General Barksdale's regiments, at seven o'clock P. M., and marched back to camp, having been absent six days and five nights. Drs. Shine and Carlisle displayed their usual skill and energy in caring for the wounded. My loss was four killed and fifty-seven wounded. Most of the wounds are slight. Respectfully, your obedient servant, Elbert Bland, Lieutenant-Colonel, commanding Seventh South Carolina Regiment. Report of Major Moody. B. G. Humphreys, Colonel commanding Twenty-First Regiment Mississippi Vols.: Sir: In compliance with your order, on the morning of the eleventh December, I took command of the
nty-fifth Tennessee10451 Battery 3  Total2827498 Aggregate400     I have much pleasure in stating that there was no straggling, either by officers or men. I have also great satisfaction in noticing the medical appointments of this brigade, for promptness and efficiency. The care and treatment of the wounded by Dr. Jackson, of the Forty-fourth Tennessee, acting Brigade Surgeon; Dr. Plummer, of the Twenty-third Tennessee; Dr. Harris and Dr.. Jones, of the Seventeenth Tennessee; and Drs. Fryar and Jackson, of the Twenty-fifth Tennessee. Also, I return my thanks to Dr. John Gannaway, who volunteered his services and rendered himself useful in a high degree. I think I may say that the wounded of this brigade received attention second to no other brigade in the army commanded by General Bragg. I have to report the following capture of ordnance and ordnance stores: Three hundred Enfield rifles (in train); two thousand two hundred Enfield rifles, different calibres, stacked
