Some of them mar need assistance which should be rendered upon their arrival at our City. Many Mots Are anxious to come but their condition is Sueh that it would be unsafe to attempt to Send them Home. I know All Aie anxious to hear particularly about the members of the Indiana regiments. If i can 1 gratify them. There Are at this Point three hospitals and have nose about eleven Hundred inmates con sisting of elegy of Indiana troops. One boat arrived last night with two Hundred and another arrived this morning with five Hundred Aad seventh five. This boat had but few in eyes l of frien. Athletic Man writhing in the agonies of death. The Bull had entered his Side and passed through him he was in a delirium his eyes about half closed his Chest was moved by that spasmodic action which is the sure precursor of death his lips murmured something no one was near him. ,1 stooped to catch his words but i could not them. The lady in attendance upon him came i left her ministering unto him but Tro this his sprit has taken its flight. Still another had both legs amputated he smiling said i lost these cause of my country and regret their loss before i had rendered her More but Why prolong this recital my own heart diam Aas they were principally Ohio and him aches As i write and readers i doubt not our oi3 troops and about fifty of the wounded Reb j souls sicken at the thought that these Are Only Els some Othea boats have gone up the River instances out of thousands. All around in of the commodious hospitals the. I.u.1.1 in nip to new and Madison. Other vessels will alive this evening and during the night and by to Morrow am will be Here that it is intended to care for at the hospitals above Paducah. When i visits the boat this morning upon the decks of which Lay five Hundred and Sev Enty five of our fellow countrymen some minus leg and. Arm. And. Indeed every character and description of in a dying state lying beside comrades could not even though enduring themselves the most intense suffering hut shed the hit hailing tears of Sor Row for companions in arms that had preceded them but a few Days to the eternal world. These men were carried upon litters to the Mas Sive Hospital. Every one promptly responded to Bis name and the number of his regiment the letter of his company and the state to which he belonged some shot through the Large Bullet holes in the breast and head through the limbs neck and every part of the Frame vet though they lad remained on the boat three Days no murmur escaped their lips was no complaining. Some of them spoke with cheerfulness and As the Muscles writhed would press the injured parts and Amila As though proud of the wound received in defence of a glorious country. Heartrending As was the though the eyes of those Cal led to the spot by curiosity were streaming tears and i was not Fres from this weak Ness if it be a weakness for i confess that 1 would have been cold As Marble not to have been moved by the painful spectacle yet no sol Dier As borne to the Hospital uttered a com plaint but on the other hand they sought to cheer those around them. These men too were of All Ages the Man with Grey hairs had fortitude and the slender Pale faced boy of fault but bide lie time when Justice will be done those meritorious acts commend them to Public favor if i was disposed to complain i Siy that the late Battle or Slaughter As it May be properly termed was disastrous because of the mismanagement in Carja City criminal negligence and 1 fear the drunkenness of certain officers and but for the timely arrival of Bull would have resulted in the the annihilation of Grants army. When will the Union Loring people of the land have sent their Kindred to fight in defense of the holy principles of free govern ment and the maintenance of the Constitution arise in their majesty and demand that the army shall be led by sober men that pre Cious life May not be sacrificed and the cause of the country jeopardised through Drunken leaders. In the morning we will resume our exam in Alionso the Hospia a so that All in the Distri to is Able to travel homeward May be furloughed and passed to their Homes. You Are aware that i am never very lavish of compliments but i cannot resist in the conclusion of this letter remarking that the Citi Zens of Evansville Are doing their duty and Huir whole duty towards the suffering.

He kept the whole rebel Force at Bay four hours when All the other divisions had retreated and when All was lost fell Back in Good order bringing the Cannon with him.
