Knox, with ninety-fire of his " Fire Zouaves "
were well breakfasted at Willard's Hotel, on the
morning of tielr arrival, through tbe exertions
of Lieut. John Pearson of the fourth regiment.
District militia. This gentleman also Secured
the service of a surgeon, and Went around in
search' of the wounded, and had them (.roperly
dressed. In passing along B street south, in
the seventh ward; we noticed the house of Mr.
Ellis and Lieut John Pearson thrown open to
the soldier, who" were invited in to refresh
themselves with good wholesome fdbd. Those
who lutded them were also famished with
hats, coats, and other garments, .The cheerful
countenances and thankful ralle,'told in
deep, thongh voiceless eloquence of tkt'gratl
tude of the poor soldier. The Natlooel Rifles,
Natioual Guards, and TarioM other of our
District military companies, did everything in
their power for the comfort of the troops. A
number of onr citizen had as many aajtwenty
or thirty soldiers in their houses at one time,
attending to their various wants.

Theycreated n great deal of exfcitement on
the streets i in fact, at the Treasury, the crowd
gathered around and threatened to hang them,
and were so clamorous that it was thought best
to place them in the guardhouse of the Treas
ury nntil the excitement was abated.
As they passed Willard's, the excitement
was very great. One gentleman pushed, his
way through the crowd, and dealt on of the
irisone's who, it is said, was seen on the
attle Geld killing the wounded men a power
ful blow, nearly knocking him down. At other
places on the route there was great trouble in
getting them through the crowd) but they
were finally got to the prison, where it is hoped
they will be sept in close confinement until the
close of the War.
Lincoln Guabd. The Lincoln Guards met
again last evening, and received nine addi
tional members. They have now forty-nine
names en roll, and will, without doubt, have the
fall compliment in a week or two, when they
will enter iuto the election of non-commissioned
officers. Or. J. E. Smith was again called
upon to address the meeting, but, with the
single remark, "soldiers do your duty," he
begged to bo excused, as he was somewhat
fatigued, having been dressing the wound of
the returning soldiers since noon.

man named Thomas Meehan( a tailor, was ar
rested by C. W. Tobey, a private of company
G, 12th New York volunteers, for using sedi
tious language in a boardingdiouse. Meeban
was lodged all night in the guardhouse, and
this tnorniug was taken before Justice Donn.
He plead drunkenness as the reason of uttering
sentiments of the kind. He was discharged on
taking too oath ol allegiance.
. Thomas Haines, a private of company B,
69th New York regiment, was arrested for at
tempting. to desert, by Lieut. Spear. Justice
Donn committed him to jail. The C9th don't

His body was escorted to the depot by one
company of the regiment and a detachment of
the Fire Zouaves yesterday afternoon, when it
left lur New York, accompanied by a detach
ment of the regiment and several members of
his family. Col. Kennedy was 45 years of age
at the time of his death, and leaves a wife and
several children to mourn his loss.
Retubned Home. The fourth Pennsylvania
regiment, Col- Ilartrauft, left yesterday after
noon, at two o'clock, for their homes, having

The Seventh Ueoimint Ready. An infor
mal notice having appeared in one of the even
ing papers to the effect that in the present crisis
of military affairs, tbe seventh regiment, Na
tional Guard, would again be called into imme
diate service, the members of that organization,
although Dot officially notified, rallied last even
ing at the armory. At eight o'clock the build
ing was black with men. The rooms of the
different companies were filled, and there was
but one sentiment that of being ready at
twelve hours notice, eleventh regiment men
who held commissions in other organizations
came there ready and willing to doff their cap-

that the regiment is ready to a man when called

The Federal Lois Greatly Exaggerated.
Indiana, which 45 years ago, in the memory
of the generation now living, was a frontier
territory inhabited by red men, has now an
army of 20,000 infantry, and 1,200 cavalry in
tho field banding for the maintenance of free

Department for three years or during the war.
The reported attack by the Federal steamer
Wabash, on the Confedetate battery at Cane
Uatieras, is confirmed. It is stated that the
attack was made on Oregon Inlet, and that the
VQulederates were dispersed by shells.
We ute still inclined to believe in tbe state

killed and wounded a being a nearly correct

Col. Marston, of tho second regiment of New
Hampshire volunteers, was severely wounded,
about o'n) o'clock', by a musket ball, which,
after passing through the upper part of the
right arm lodged in bis breast, from whence it
was extracted yesterday.
Col. Marston was on foot when he received
the wound, but immediately mounted his horse
and led his regiment for between one and two
hours. Such heroism is worthy, not only of
note, bnt of high praise. He was brought into
the city at 5r o'clock on Monday morning, in a
common baggage wagon belonging to hi regl
ment, and driven by Surgeon Hubbard, whose
attentions to his brave commander have been

In the' fight", i&ey observed an infantry regi
ment bearing the American Hag, which they
mistook for a Massachusetts regiment : bnt when
they approached nearer, they moved 'their posi
tion, and disclosed a battery, which opened
on them with fearful effect the first shot kill
log seven men of company D, The regiment
nut having force sufficient to Sank them, were
forced to retreat. They, however, kept on the
field until it was certain that to remain would
bs certain death before they left, which they
did in good order. They, perhaps, next to
the Zouaves, were the most out up nearly
one half of them are missing. The following
is a list of the wounded at their camp in Frank
jlq i Square:
N. Wright, of company A, in the thigh ; O.
Dick, company A; J. W. Butler, fractured rib)
Sergeant G- W. Williamson, of company D,
fractured rib Joseph Williams, company 0, in
the thigh) Lieutenant Philips, company G,
slightly; L. J. Steel, company G, bayonet
wound in the abdomen C. Miller, company F,
in the wrist j W. J. Randall, company G, in

Captain Rodgers, company D, shoulder; Lieu
tenant H. O. Jackson, company D, In the arm ;
D. D. Carpenter, in the thigh ; Sergoant L. D,
Button, in the thigh ; James Lester, company
D, rib fractured ; Frank Spencer, thigh ; others
are continually being brought into the city.
In their camp there are several of the wounded
Fire Zouaves, who were brought in by the men,
and are well attended by Dr. Barnes and his
able assistants. Among the wounded are W.
llwyer, company F, in the arm, leg, and back;
H. Shields, company B, slightly; Jerry Ryan,
company H, slightly.
A report was circulated that the Minnesota
regiment did not stand fire, but broke and run
in disorder. We are very happy, however, to
learn that such was not the fact. They stood
tbo concentrated fire of two batteries, and
fought bravely as long as there seemed to be any
nse to expose themselves to the murderous fire
of masked batteries and rifle pits. The loss of
the regiment, killed, wounded, and missing,
exceeds 120.
A Minnesota boy was rushed upon by fonr
colered soldiers full-blooded Africans ; three
were shot by Zouaves, the fourth attempted to
pin him to the ground with his bayonet, which
he parried, which gave a slight wound upon
his thigh and run into the ground its whole
length, and before he cauld extricate it, the
boy shot him through tbe body, which was so
near that the blaze of the gun set his clothes
on fire.
The United States marines, under Majors
Reynolds, Zeilen, and Nicholson, behaved in
the most gallant manner throughout tbe strug
gle. Of 360 men, which they had at the com
mencement of the battle, 160 are either killed,
wounded, or missing. Among their killed is
Lieutenant Hitchcock, who was strnck In the
face by a rifle cannon shot ; Major Zeilen was
wounded in the arm, and Lieutenant Hale re
osived a serious wound In the leg from a Minnie
rifle ball.
As Dr. A. S. Barne9 and his assistants were
dressing the wounds of the men, a parcel of the
rebels charged over the field, drove them
00, and bayonetted and cut tbe throats of the
wounded before their eyes. This inhuman
treatment wa3 not only observed by these gen
tlemen, but by many others indifferent ports of
the field.
Throe Now York ira Zouaves, who were
scoutinct in the advance, hunted the rebels on

A brother of Chaplain Kellen, of thii city, is
teported wounded.
The Rhode Island battery, with tbe excep
tion of one piece, was retaken early yesterday
morning. The piece remaining behind is said
to be bunted. The battery got into a deep mire,
but wm not 'discovered by the rebels.
A considerable number of balls, covered with
a peculiar substance, suppustd to be of a poi
sonous nature, were found all over the field. A
nuuibir of rifle balls, with brass cartridge
oases attached, such aa are used In an English
breech-loading rifl of late invention, were also
found on the field.
The last seen of tbe gallant Colonel Wilcox,
h was lyin woitided on the battle-field, and
he is either dead or taken prisoner; Captain
Withingtnn, company B; Batterworth,
company C; Lieutenant Casey, company G,
Monck, company F; Orderly Sergeant
Lewis Htrfmeyer, company A; privates Rich
ard Jones, company A, James Kelley, company
F, and both color-bearers, all killed. Cun
ningham, company A, and John Stafford, com
pany G, are among the wounded. Major Bid-
well took the place of- Col. Wilcox, and man
aged to bring his regiment out of the field i in
the best possible order. Several hundred of
the men have not yet retnrnei to oamp.
On the first retreat of the troops, Lieutenant
Colonel Elliott rallied the men, who afterward
made three different ohargcj on the enemy'
cavalry, and would have probably captured the
whole of them if they had ben properly Banked,
After the death of Colonel Cameron, the com
mand fell upon the gallant Lieutenant Colonel
Elliott, who acted in the coolest possible man
ner, and dashed off to order up the reserve of
General Blanker, but was ton late to rally.our
retiring rear. The regiment suffered consider
ably. Besides losing their Colonel, they had
many of their best officers and men killed,
wounded, and takes. Tbe chaplain of our Dis
trict troops, Robert Kellsn, was with Colonel
'Elliott, and nobly fought with the men.
The following perrons were received at the
Infirmary yesterday. None of them are, how
ever, dangerously wonnded:

A party of seven Zouaves were separate
from the regiment, on the battle field, and taken
prisoners by a troop of horse, who overpowered
them. They were tied, and carried to one of
the batteries', where thy were made the sub
jects of the most insulting indignities.
The rebels tied them to 'posts, and would
charge bayonets on thein, and run their bayonets
close to their bteasts. On of them, named
O'Brien, notwithstanding that he was tied and
hand-cuffed, managed to make his escape, and
last eveulng he arrived in this city, Laving the
hand-tuff still dangling to his wrists.
A Zouave was observed setting on tho side of
the road, having had hi hand nearly severed
from hi wrist bya ball, which he wa endeavor
ing towring off the Binew. A the soldiers
were passing him, he was observed to elevate
his hand to his mouth, aa if to btte it off. With
an oath, he remarked that "New York was
game," which were probably the last words
spoken by Mm, as he was fast sinking from loss
of blood when last seen. ,
The six members of the second Ohio regi
ment, who were reported killed, have sinoe re
turned to their regiment, they having only been
yparatad from the regiment. ,

To the Editor of the National Republican:
Permit me through your columes to dis
abuse the public mind, of a groas reflection rast
upon the New York twelfth regiment, volun
teers, by some unknown "eye-witness " in his
aocouut of the battle at Bull Ruu, on Thursday
of last week. I am a member of that regiment
aud confess I am rjained at this false state
ment, and aware that my membership may
ulace me in a Unlit of partiality to it will sim
ply make a briet statement, which I vouch for
on the honor of a mau and a soldier.
Three companies of the Massachusetts first.
entered the gully as skirmishers, aud encoun
tered the rebels by whom they were cheered to
induce them onward, and who onr troops mis
took for Michigan troops in that they thaw were
dressed nearly tbe same. Coming directly
upon a masked battery they were fired npou,
and lost heavily beforn they could retreat.
Two iriinj wer then made to bear upon the
rebel battery, sustained by Capt. Brocket of
the cavelry.
The gallant captain rushed up to where wa
were in possession of a winding ravine, crying
" for God's sake help me to sustain that lattery,
or it is lost we can drive those dogs out of
that." Our Colonel at that moment was ab
sent, bnt our men rushed up and met the bat
tery retreating, in doing which it broke our
ranks. We, however, rushed up the hill and
down into the thick underbrush, and were
checked by a fire from a masked battery, not
six yards in our front. Fortuuately the aim
was too low. the next two high, and we suffer
ed no loss, but, 'discharged two rounds, loading'
upon our baexs. When tne rebel Uro became
too terrible fur any regiment to withstand, and
not being supported right or left, we; wero
forced to retire. Not a soldier of our brigado
was to be seen when we emerged from the
thicket. The centre of our regiment rallied
and discharged seven more rounds others
were carrying off the dead and wounded, while
others were prostrate from fatigue of the seve
ral days preceding march and the encounter.
Col. Walrath stood bravely by his men, and
acting tbe part of a discreet commander, did
not permit his men to return to a conflict which
would be nothing less than suicide.
It is in evidence that the rebel force secreted
in tbe battery at the time of our attaak was not
leu than 10,000 certain it is that the fire
poured upon our regiment was more than thrible
our own number, and the result has shown
that the order sending our brigade into the
strong held of the enemy, unsnpported by either
right or left flanks, was highly ceosureable. It
is highly desirable that the act of our soldiers
be hereafter judged by men of military educa
tion, instead cf reporters for sensation sheets.
