II. Butler, commanding 18thTonncsseo
Vols., for tho benefit of tho relatives
and friends of tho sufferers, many of
whom will have no means of arriving
at authentic information otherwise
It will bo seen tho Regiment suffered
soverely--l35 out of 450, the Colonel,
his entire Staff, and ovory company
commander but two being either woun
ded or ki lod; yet the friends of the
brave sufforera may bo choored by tho
reflection that it is conceded on all
hands that tho rogiment bore itsolf
gallantly, and with distinguished cour
age. Bo it spoken to the credit of Col.
Palmor that, although dismounted ear
ly in tho action, his horse having boon
injured by threo sevoral shots, and
whilst on foot having roceivod a gun
shot wound of tho shouldor and leg,
and a sholU wound on tho knoo, just at
tho raornonl his regiment was mooting
tho furious onset of two heavy Federal
retri moots iu front and on tho flank:
yet ho paused not, blanched not, but
shoutod his men into the route of tho
enemy, and accompanied thorn to tho
uttermost point of battle, and aftor the
whole Division was seen retiring from
tho field, ho conducted his regiment to
its original position, ro-formed tho
Brigade ; then, and not until thon, ho
called for a Surgeon, and had his
wounds field-dressed. Other feats of
glory and deeds of daring executed by
tho officers and men of the 18th Tenn,
Vols, on this woll-Btricken field might
be recited wore it competent, and not
invidious to do so. Let u suffice, that
the regiinont may well and truly feo
and claim that it has " covered itsolf
with glory. "Surgeon en Videttk."

Lieut. W. II. Stricklan, commanding a
company in tho 15th Ala. Uegitaont,
and datod " near Port Royal, Va., Dec,
19th, 1862," we extract the following
notice of one of "our boys " who felt
nobly fighting for Southern -independence.
Lieut. Stricklan bays:
It is with deep, deep regret that I
inform you that SargeantG. W. Logan
was killed in action near -Fredericksburg,
Va., Dec. 13th 1862.
Thus again do w 0 mourn the early
demise of another young patriot of
our second struggle lor liborty and in.
dependence, lie was a good soldier, a
fine friend in fact possessed of all tho
attributes that enoblcs man, and ar
dently devoted to our pure and holy
cause. Although wo may weep for tha
los3 of our comrade in arms, at tho
earao time we willavengo his death and
do and dare moro than ever.
Oh! that the vilo hirelings who are
poluting our noble land with their
presence could witness tho energy and
determination Southorns arc possessed
of, thoy would quako iu their craven
bodies at the retribution which is cor
tain to come home to them and theirs.
To his parents and relatives his com
rades tender their heartfelt condolcnco
for their sad bcreavemont, trusting
they will boar with, rjsignation their
loss, and hoping ko mny all meet in
that happy land where tliero is no atrifo
but where dwells pence and happiuoss.
