Hagerstown, Md., June 23.--At a recent parade of the Wisconsin regiment, a scene of a solemn and deeply affecting nature occurred, which I have not before noticed. After a regimental parade, the colonel, Starkweather, commanded the attention of his men, and addressed them on the subject of the great cause which brought them so far from home, and appealing to their courage and patriotism, asked if they were ready to follow him. All responded affirmatively. But to five full effect and formal dignity to this resolution, he called for the colors of the regiment, and waving the Stars and Stripes in the breeze, kneeled at its foot, and offering up an invocation, in which the men were called upon to join, the whole regiment knelt as one man, and renewed their fealty to their flag. There were few dry eyes witnessed this affecting scene.--N. Y. Tribune, June 26.

They are the men from whom our troops should be ais fire. Rousseau ordered Guenther and Loomis to reply to the rebel batteries, which they did with such effect as to soon silence them. Stone's battery and Col. Starkweather's brigade, which had, meanwhile, come up, were posted around the mouth of the opening in rear of the cedar forest. But it was soon known that the enemy was

Federal cavalry guarding the Chattanooga station General Rosecrans looked narrowly to his line of communications when he set out from Nashville to attack General Braxton Bragg in the latter part of December, 1862. The Confederate cavalry leader, General Wheeler, was abroad. At daylight on December 30th he swooped down at Jefferson on Starkweather's brigade of Rousseau's division, in an attempt to destroy his wagon-train. From Jefferson, Wheeler proceeded to La Vergne, where he succeeded in capturing the immense supply trains of McCook's Corps. Seven hundred prisoners and nearly a million dollars' worth of property was the Union Government's penalty for not heeding the requests of the commanding general for more cavalry. A train at Rock Spring and another at Nolensville shared the same fate at Wheeler's hands, and at two o'clock

rs to each other. Nearly all were unfamiliar with the country in which they found themselves, which was unusually wooded and hilly. Bragg, himself, was lacking in quick appreciation of features of topography.

A reconnoisance in force was now made. Bragg was stealthily approaching, being well masked, and Cheatham's division fell suddenly and heavily upon McCook's flank with horrid yells, when the raw and outnumbered troops of General Terrell broke and fled. General Jackson had been killed. In an attempt to rally his troops, Terrell was mortally wounded. When Terrell's force was scattered, the Confederates fell with equal weight upon Rousseau's division. An attempt to destroy it was met by Starkweather's brigade and the batteries of Bush and Stone, who maintained their positions for nearly three hours, until the ammunition of both infantry and artillery was nearly exhausted. Bush's battery had lost thirty-five horses. Meanwhile, Rousseau's troops fought stubbornly, and held their position while resisting Confederates commanded by Bragg in person. The Confederates finally made a fierce charge on the brigade of Lytle, hurling it back with heavy loss. They pressed forward to Gilbert's

re, behind breastworks of logs and rails, the timber freshly cut from the abundant forest. The position was a quarter of a mile east of the road, in the forest, with open fields behind it running to the road and surrounding Kelly's house. The breastworks made a sharp angle about opposite the right of Polk's brigade (on the left of Helm) and ran back northwest to the road. From the angle to the road King's brigade of regulars was stationed, and on their right Scribner's brigade and then Starkweather's. General Baird formed his division in two lines, and reported that King's regulars were even more concentrated. Three batteries of artillery belonged to Baird's division, but that general reported that much of it was disabled on the 19th, and that he defended his line with but four guns. Gist's brigade, not 1,000 strong, plunged into the woods, without support right or left, to storm the position from which Cleburne on its left and Helm in its front, were retiring. The gallant Helm
