obligations or patriotism required them. Had I time it would be, indeed, a pleasing duty for me to speak, in connection with the Sixty-third, of such officers as Captains Gleason, Condon, Moore, and Lieut. James R. Brady, and others, whom it would be difficult for me now to mention without having the leisure to speak of them with adequate commendation. Within the last three months two regiments were incorporated in the brigade. Pennsylvania contributed the One Hundred and Sixteenth; Massachusetts contributed the Twenty-eighth. The fact that Col. Heenan, Lieut.-Col. Mulholland and Major Bardwell, of the first named regiment, were badly wounded, speaks filly for the intrepidity and mettle of the men of which it is composed. Where there are such officers there must be staunch men. The Twenty-eighth Massachusetts volunteers was raised for the Irish Brigade, but, owing to some mistake, was kept aloof from it until, by a most fortunate vicissitude of the war, it was restored to us

the night, and the next morning we were marched back to our old camp, where the regiment is at present quartered. In closing this report permit me to bring before your attention the names of Captain E. S. Pierce and Captain I. S. Geer, both acting field-officers who ably assisted me upon the march and during the engagement of Saturday, December thirteenth; also Adjutant Geo. W. Remington and all officers and men-each vied with the other in sustaining the reputation of the regiment won at Bull Run, Yorktown, Williamsburgh, Fair Oaks, Malvern Hill, Charles City Cross-Road, Groveton, Chantilly, etc. The following is a correct list of the casualties that have occurred: Privates, Wm. Williams, company B, back; Charles Miller, company B, arm; Wm. Osborne, company C, hand; H. S. Briggs, company F, head; Michael Kane, company G, foot; Ira Austin, company I, foot.

dried fruit, ten boxes of soda biscuit, six barrels of crackers, nearly one thousand pounds of concentrated milk. The beef stock we had brought up was, I am again happy to say, not needed, there being a bountiful provision among the hospital stores, and fresh beef at command at all times, and in any quantity. As rapidly as the wounded were attended to and put in a condition for safe transportation, they were removed from the field-hospitals to the general hospitals in Washington and Point Lookout. The removal was effected by ambulance or stretcher to the cars, by cars to the landing at Acquia Creek, and thence to Washington by steamboat. The principal battle occurred on the thirteenth December, and on the twenty-fifth the last of the wounded were removed. The floors of both cars and boats were well covered with fresh hay, and in addition to this, the severely wounded had mattresses or bed-sacks. In order to meet whatever demands might arise for the proper sustenance of the

iding myself with the document that, according to orders, was demanded before transportation to the Rappahannock could be procured, and from the War Office to Gen. Burnside's tent it remained snugly folded in my pocket-book. The boat from Washington to Acquia Creek was crowded with officers and privates, returning to the army from home and convalescent camps. The majority of them had been wounded, and were about to try again the hard fortunes of war. The familiar portico and cupola at Mount Vernon, with an unfamiliar red roof, and the white spot in the trees that is the tomb of Washington, was greeted by the tolling of the steamer's bell, and the battered soldiers returning to the wars hushed their songs and loud conversation, to look upon the old home of the Father of his Country, which now peculiarly summons emotions in the breast of the American citizen that are solemnizing and unutterable. The Acquia Creek landing is about sixty-five miles below Washington, on the Potomac, a

Captain H. M. Hoyt's report. headquarters Eighth Connecticut volunteers, Falmouth, Va., December 18, 1862. Adjutant-General J D. Williams: General: I have the honor to submit the following report of the movements of the Eighth regiment Connecticut volunteers during the recent operations against the enemy's position near Fredericksburgh. For a few days previous to the engagement the regiment had been stationed upon the bank of the river opposite the centre of the city, in support of DNew-Hampshire regiment, and rejoined the brigade in the rear of the city, and then re-crossed the bridge and returned to our former camp near the Lacey House. There is no necessity of saying any thing in regard to the conduct of the men, as Connecticut soldiers always do credit to their native State. The following is the list of casualties: wounded, December eleventh, private Robert Rice, Co. C, mortally in abdomen; private Sylvester Godfrey, Co. H, shoulder, slightly ; December thirteent

smoothly along, breaking through only in lowland places. We had not marched very far before the serene stillness of the morning was broken by the roar of cannon which told us there was work ahead. Just at the break of day we descended from Stafford Heights into the valley of the Rappahannock, which was overhung by a dense fog. We slowly approached the river about two miles below Fredericksburgh City, where the engineers were hard at work in throwing across the stream two pontoon-bridges. Densields on the south bank were swarming with Union soldiers drawn in line of battle. Hooker's and Franklin's grand divisions crossed below the city. The rebels occasionally opened their batteries from the mountain, to which ours replied from Stafford Heights on the other side. The musket-firing between skirmishers at times was very brisk. The day was mostly spent, however, in getting our mien in position and seeking out the strongholds of the enemy. One man of our regiment in the afternoon wa
