The 72d Regiment in Battle.
Whew the M)r the Pittsburg battle first

This waa indeed nad news, and every one (par
ed for the worst. But what nm next wa still
'wore. A correspondent bf the Chicago Tri

that several Ohio Regiment, Including the 79d,
allowed an "me-nmmhlt want nf rflHmry," Impu
ting eowarjiee to them, and that the T2d, "after
firing one or two round, fled. Thia was a

friends In the regiment was, that they would
sooner hear that they were dead than that they
fled. But this depression of spirits did not Inst
long. Some acouted at the report, while all
aald they should wait for further newa. They
had not long to wait, for next morning's mai

account of Mr. Treat, who was an eye-witness
ta what ha relates. The reader will 6nd this

was completely exonerated from the lying char

We add the following in behalf of the bra
Tery and soldierly bearing of the 73d, commu

If any thing further was wanting to contro

tenth of the entire regiment, and a still greater
proportion of the regiment which was actually
engaged. It ia very seldom that so large a loss
is sustained in an action as this, although many
regiments in this battle suffered worse than the
72J. All honor to our gallant boys.

Retrenchment in Ohio.
The auditor of state, Mr. Tayler, has msde an
elnlmrate report to tha Legislature, showing
a'here retrenchment may be made in state, emia
ty aud township taxes, and he appends these es
timates as the result ot such reduction:

The Legislature should not fail to cut down
apprnpriationa and tires to at least mutch tno
above estimate. The Federal levy of taxes
must necessarily be very heavy, and state, coun
ty, city, village and township expenses should
be largely retrenched in order to enable the loy
al people to bear the burden the war fur the Un
ion has imposed upon them. lwe(otul iieraia.
It seems to us that there might be many thou
sands of dollars saved to the Treasury of Ohio,
if the Legislatora now in session, were to pay at
tention to the Constitution of the state, and not
in violation of that instrument, vote to have an
extra session. Whle talking about retrench
ment, permit us to ask how much haa it cost the
state by the Legislature adjourning over for
three days every two or three weeks? hy
cannot our Legislative wisdom coriect such
abuses and prevent the squandering of the peo
ple's money? Wherever retrenchment can be
made let it be dune.

Last week's JrWseaow occupies over a column
in endeavering to show that the squelching out
of the "straights" in thia Township and Cor
poration, at the late election, wasn't much of a
defeat after all. It puts us in mind of the story
of the old sinner and Noah in the time of the
flood, which vans in tbia wise: After it had been
raining several days, and the highest hills were
covered with, water, one of Roan's neighbers
waa standing on a high knoll near the ark, with
the water up to hia chin, begging Noah to take
him in. Noah told him that he could not, that
it waa contrary orders. "Well," replied the ap
plicant, "go ta thunder with your old boat, it
aint much of a shower any way I" .

The 72d was chiefly raised in Sandusky

P. Buckland of Fremont, with Lieut. Col.
Herman Canfiold of Medina, and Major
Leroy Crockett, of Tiffin, Col. Buckland
had been promoted to the position of Act
ing Brigadier General, which left Lieut.
Col. Canfield in command of tho regiment.
On the Friday previous to the battle Major

leaving Lieut. Col. Canfiold tho only
The capture of Major Crockett was effec
ted under tbe following circumstances: On
Friday morning he took the regiment out
to drill on tho parade ground about a mile
from (ho enmp. He was unarmed at the
timo, no enemy being supposed lobe near.
Whilst drilling, firing was hoard in the di
rection of the pickets, and the regimont was
taken out to the picket line. About fifteen
or twenty rebel cavalry wcro in sight, who
retreated slowly, followed by Co. H, led on
by Major Crockett. At a short distance
they met a body of ab Ait two hundred
rebel cavalry, and the company at once
drew up in line and commenced firing.

of rebel cavalry swept down upon him and
took the privates prisoners. Three of tho
privates were secured, but tbo tourtb escap

until he was woundod by a pistol shot in
the neck. Major Crockett attempted to
escape, but the rebels closed on him, firing
all the time. When last seen he had fall

the rebels closing in on him. A rebel pris

THE POSITION ON SUNDAY MORNING.
On (he west side of the Tennessee is a
small creek, which rising somewhere in the
direction of Corinth, flows near tho Tennes
see above Pittsburg and then makes a sweep
to the west, returning to the river and empt
ying into it below Pittsburg Landing. Tbe
road from tho Landiug strikes out in a west
erly direction until nearly reaching tbe
creek, when it turns more to the south and
crosses tho creek in the direction of Corinth.
The stream is generally fordablo. but a coup
le of bridges had been built hy men under
the charge of VJol. tjannekl, over which a
portion of our troops wore to cross when
the expected march on Corinth should tnke
place. Along each side of the road between
the Landing and tho creek were stationed
numerous regiments. Tbe 72d Ohio with
the 70lh Ohio, Col. Cockerell, and the 48th
Ohio, Col. Sullivan, forming Buckland's
Brigade of Shormnn's Division, were station
ed on the north side of tbe road, the 7 2d
being directly opposite tho elbow formed by
tho road in turning towards the Landing.
The 40th Illinois, Gth Iowa, and another
regiment were beyond tbo 72d, and at the
rear, on the morning of the fight was a de
tachment of Illinois Cavalry, sent to take
the placo previously occupied by a detach
ment of tbe 5lu Ohio Uavalry. Auckland s
Brigade was not supported by any other
troops in the rear. The camp was in an
"oak opening," and towards the front and
sides wero thicker woods.
Early ou Sunday morning scattering fir
ing was beard in the direction of Prentiss'
Division, which soon camo nearer. Shortly
before eight o'clock the 70th Ohio was call
ed out, formed in line and advanced firing.
The 7 2d immediately formed inline in front
of its camp and advanced toward the creek.
They had marched about twenty rods to tbo
brink of a hollow when they saw the ene
my s infantry not twenty rods distant. Oil
ing the ravine and coming down over the
opposite ridge. They had crossed the ereek
on tbe bridges built for tbe march of our
army, and came in unobserved on our forces.
The opposing forces immediately drew up
in line of battle fronting each other, and
about twenty rods distance, and commen
ced a heavy fire of musketry.
The execution was murderous. , At
every volley our men foil In numbers, snd
tbe effect on the enemy was at least equally
great. The wounded, as fast as they full,
were taken to the rear of the regimental
camp and placed on bay that bad been
hastily slrewn on the ground for (heir re
ception. Seventy -five of the severely woun
ded of the 72d were counted by Mr, Treat
thus lying soon after (bo fight had commen
ced. Tbe numerous dead lay as tbey full.
For more than three quarters of an hour
thia desperate conflict, continued, the firing
being aa rapid as the men could load and
fire. - Neither side gave any sign of retir
ing, botb-partiea fighuug with desperation.
At the end of that time tbe firing ceased

mere ammunition. Tha 7 2d stood their
ground and during the ceesalion of hoatili

enemy again came up to close quarters, and
this timo with a vastly increased force.
The struggle was short but desperate. Col.
Cau field, of the 72d, fell about the close of
the first attack, and the regiment was loft
without a fiflld officer. ' Under these dis
heartening circumstauces,end pressed npon
by an overwhelming and constantly increas

to the foe, and steadily firing on them, tak

FALL OF LIEUT. COL., CANFIELD.
During the first fight with the enemy,
Colonel Catifield continually rodo up and
down the line of hia regimont, cheering on
his men. Just at the close of tho first fight,
as he was in the act of turning to ride back
along the line, a Minie ball entered hia
breast throttch tho nclit arm hole of tne
rest, passed along the wholo breadth of
the breast, brcnkine: tbe bono alonir the
wholo distance:, ponotratinij the right lung,
and then passed out on tho loft side, tear
ing a ghastly hole. He fell from bis horse,
and was carried to tho rear by sorao of the
men, who placed him on some hny strewn
in the rear of the Field Officer's tent. Mr.
Trent joined him and assisted the surgeons
in examining the wound. Captain Enlon,
who was loo sick to participate in the Mo
tion, assisted in tbo examination, borne
lint was placed on the wound. He lay ap
parently dead until Mr. Treat poured some
brandy and water into bis mouth, when he
opened his eyes and said with difficulty:
''Right lung: bleeding inwardly." As soon
as the retreat was commenced ho was
placed on a stretcher and taken by Mr.
Trent, tho Serct. Major, and two privates.
into the ravine. They followed tho line of
tho ravine amid a hail storm of bullets that
rattled all around them m til a gully was
reached that partially protected them.
Here they were joined by 2d Lieut. Fisher,
of Co. B, who had been separated from his
Company in the retreat. Finding they
wcro cut off from their regiment by tho en
emy, the little party followed tho gully to
the creek, which they forded at one place,
crossed at another place on a log, nnd on
another on a temporary bridge, wading
through mud until the bank of the Tonnes-

who is quite young, showed a bravery, do

About fifty meu of various regiments, must of
theiu sick snd wounded, were on the river hank
all night, having escaped from the battle-field.
Luot. lihnu and Uapt. .baton, ot the lUil, were
there with about 20 men, nil they could find of
their companies. They had been cut off from
their regiment and retreated in the direction of
Crump s Landing. 1 he 2d lieutenant ol Com
pany I, Dounell, was also there.
Iu the morning Col. Cnnfield was taken to
Crump's Lauding and placed on board the Tost
Hospital llont, where his wound was dressed.
Alsmt noon he became partially unconscious,
slid died at nearly 7 o'clock on lomlity evening.
Before he became unconscious he inquired re
peatedly iu relation to the progress of the fight,
and once madithe remark: ' I have faced the en
emy aud foil." A little before his death Mr.
Treat informed him that we had won the victo
ry, when he Hligblly raised his hand, a if to
snow that ho understood.
Mrs. Canfield had been stopping at Paducah
and came up in the steamboat 1 . J. I'attin with
her little boy intending to give her husband a
pleasant surprise. After passing Crump'sLand
