Lodge, only sixteen years of age, enlisted in Capt. Lodge's Company, Tenth Regiment, and is at present at the seat of war. The following letter was received by Mr. Lodge, on Saturday, explanatory of the, death of his son: MR. Douglas Lodge, who fell at Fredericksburgh [sic], on the 5th, while skirmishing out in the front, after passing through the most terrific fire of the day before. He was shot in the forehead, penetrating the brain.
I had him carried to the rear and his body is safe, and the Colonel has ordered it to be embalmed and sent to you. His body was recovered by private Casey, of his own Company. His personal effects I will have taken care of and sent on. I can say no more, but we are terribly cut up. In the death of this gallant officer the country has lost one of its bravest men, and brightest scholar.
By gallant conduct he worked from this position, step by step, until at last he won the Captaincy. He was possessed of splendid literary abilities, being conversant in many of the languages. His company was recruited in Canajoherie. We believe they at present reside in Iowa.
His death no doubt, is keenly felt by the members of his company, by whom he was greatly beloved while living. We regret to announce the death of Lieut. Koonz while in the prime of life—being only twenty-five years of age. He was a young man of sterling qualities, honest, upright and generous. He has left a large circle of sympathising [sic] friends who deeply deplore his loss. He enlisted and was made Orderly Sergeant in Capt. Griffin's Company C, 43d Regiment.
For gallant conduct on the field of battle field at Antietam he was promoted to a Lieutenancy, and while leading a charge in the battle of Fredericksburgh [sic], he met his death. Orderly Sergeant Russell and privates John Henderson, John Coldwell, John Ballanger, and Daniel McGee, who were killed in the battle of Fredericksburgh [sic], are said to have exhibited remarkable courage in storming the enemy's rifle pits and batters. It is a consosolation [sic] for their friends to know that they died with their face to the enemy like heroes. Some of the Wounded. I, hip.
Wilkinson, of the 43d Regiment, is on a brief visit to his family in this village. He is looking well notwithstanding the hardships which he underwent while a prisoner in the hands of the rebels. He was taken prisoner at the battle at Frederisksburg [sic] and was paroled, but has not yet been exchanged. He is in the best of health. From the Forty-Third Regiment. Patrick's Day on the "sacred soil" of Virginia. On the eve of St. Patrick's Day me and a few more of the boys, among them an old gent whom we call "Lovely" Dalton, got permission to go and see the races and spend the day with the Irish Brigade, which is camped some five miles from us.
We arrived in good season for the sport. A few yards from the camp of the brigade was a race course, judge's stand and all complete, with a couple of brass bands, playing all the National airs, and to set everything out Gen. Meagher was mounted on a spendid [sic] horse and dressed in the costume of a real Irish jockey. He was commander-in-chief of the sport, and no one seemed to enjoy it better.
At the appointed time all the jockeys, which numbered some forty or fifty, started off around the race course. All was excitement to find out the winning horse, but where there were thousands of spectators from the different regiments in the army, there was no chance for me to find out his name or what regiment he belonged to.
During the sport, Major Gen. Hooker and staff made their appearance and was accommodated with everything the brigade could afford him. Meagher reached him a bottle—what it contained I could not say, but could see the boys smack their lips as he drank the health of Gen. Meagher and the Irish Brigade—which was followed by loud cheering for Hooker, Meagher and the Irish brigade.
Trench, Gen. Sickles and lady, Gen. Sedgwick, Gen. Newton Gen. Pratt and Col. Baker and lady. During the sport the "long roll" was beat and the Irish Brigade called to arms. All was excitement. Every one started for their camps but "Lovely Dalton" and I felt so good that we put up in the woods and did not reach the regiment until morning, when everything went on as usual. We will always remember how we spent St.
Patrick's day in Virginia. F and C, of the N. Baker, while on picket duty, were taken prisoners, and that only about two hundred men of the regiment were left. The despatch adds that nearly the entire Brigade, of which the Forty-Third was part, were mostly captured. The 18th Regiment was also in the same Brigade. Great solicitude is felt in regard to the fate of the two regiments, as they are mainly composed of Albanians. Lombard, of this city, will be happy to learn that he has been promoted to Second Lieutenant in the Forty-third Regiment.
A, 43d Regiment, who was in the recent battles at Fredericksburg, and is I therefore able to give a correct account of the part taken by his regiment. Young Ahern has passed through several battles in each of which he has done himself credit, and proved that he was no coward. In one engagement he was I slightly wounded, and after being taken to the Washington hospital, the loyal ladies of that city, learning of his bravery, contributed a sufficient sum to purchase a handsome drum, which I has been presented to him. We came as far as the pontoon park, and at about 7 o'clock, P.
At 9 o'clock P. About 4 A. Among the wounded in this little affair was Col. Irwin, of the 49th Penn. All that day we lay on the north bank of the river, and all the next day and night. On the 1st of May, at 5 p. That night the picket line was all quiet, but the next morning early the rebels commenced shelling. That night, at 6 P. At about 1 o'clock A. The 1st Chasseurs were in advance, and just as they reached the town, congratulating themselves on the easy job they had, viz. They then charged, and, at the point of the bayonet, drove the rebels from the town.
The artillery them moved into the town, and commenced shelling. The action then became general. All of our siege guns on the north side of the river opened on the rebels, and they lay still, not firing a shot for a half hour. We started to get into the town, and as we were crossing a little creek, a shell burst right in the drum corps, a second one burst in Co. C, and a third in Co. D, wounding Sergeant J. Hughes, and breaking another man's gun. Jim Hughes's wound it is hoped is not bad. We lay on the roads around this city till 10 A. That was a seeming desperate idea—two regiments to charge across an open field and up a height, in the face of a sweeping cross fire, where the celebrated Irish Brigade had been three times repulsed in the first battle of Fredericksburg; but the boys threw off their haversacks, knapsacks and canteens, and started.
The fire from the different batteries was terrific; and it was a grand and sublime sight to see those two regiments move across in the face of shot and shell, to victory or death. Lodge at this instant fell, knocked down by a piece of shell, which struck him on the sword belt, and at the same time our brave Colonel fell, completely exhausted.
This seemed to give the regiment a check, but Lieut. Wilson and Major Fryer rallied the regime again, and Col. Baker and Capt. Lodge, who had only had the breath knocked out of his body, sprang into their places again. Now commenced an exciting race between the gallant 6th Maine, 5th Wisconsin, and our regiment, to see which should get their colors in first.
The brave 6th Maine were the first to plant their colors in the fort on the left of us; scarcely had their standard touched the ground, ere Captain Lodge sprang up the ramparts, and planted our colors on the redoubt which we had stormed and carried. Then cheer after cheer was echoed and re-echoed from our regiments on the rebels forts to the batteries on the hills in front of them. We have not been even mentioned in the papers for it.
We did all the fighting, and the 6th Corps got all the honor. Ask any man who was engaged in those seven days' fighting what division charged and carried at the point of the bayonet those heights, from which the celebrated Irish Brigade was three times repulsed? Before which three divisions were uselessly butchered in a vain attempt to carry; and the answer is the Light Division; and that Division numbered 2, men. You will understand the greatness of that charge when I tell you that the Irish Brigade numbered, when the charge was made, as much as 3, men, and the three divisions which charged after the Irish Brigade numbered full 6, men each.
We had first to take the caps off the guns, so that the men should not fire, for on the bayonet alone were they to depend. Then to move across a large open field, and up a hill some fifty feet high, in the face of a terrible cross fire of solid shot, shell, grape, canister and musketry, after which to drive the rebels, who numbered some 5,, out of rifle pits and forts, which they considered as impossible to be tsken [sic]. We fairly astounded them, and before they recovered from their astonishment at seeing a handful of men spring in among them, the bayonet and butt of the gun were doing their terrible work.
The first man on the redoubt was the lamented Capt. Lodge, who now rests in peace; "he has gone to that bourne from whence no traveler returns. He forms one of that holy band who died for their country. May their blood cement the Union stronger in the bonds of love. He died beloved by all his men, and there was not a dry eye in the company when they heard he was no more. I stayed with him till he died. He was the first on the ramparts, and planted our colors five minutes after the heights were in our possession; and the Stars and Stripes waved triumphantly over another hard-fought field. Wallace 43d, in the recent battle at Fredericksburgh [sic] Killed.
Shinkle, Timothy Kelly. Prisoners—Captain Wm Wallace, Lieut. Blasie, Sergeant's Wm. William Hastings, of the 43d Regiment, who was taken prisoner at the storming of the heights of Fredericksburg, and sent to Richmond, where he was confined in Libby Prison for five days, when he was paroled and sent to Annapolis returned to this city yesterday morning.
The Lieutenant is enjoying excellent health, and looks exceedingly hale and hearty. He will remain here until he is exchanged, when he will return to his regiment. The Casualties in the 43d Regiment.

Kelsey, Sergt. Thompson, M. James Lee, J. Ainsworth, J. Aaron Cole, Sergt. Henry Himmerman,. FRIEND CUYLER—Having a few liesure [sic] moments, the first I have had since I got out of the hands of the Philistines, I avail myself of the opportunity of writing you these few lines, informing you, and the many readers of your spicy sheet, that there are of the 43d on board of the fleet on its way to Annapolis, which has the paroled prisoners on, and that they are all in good health and spirits, notwithstading [sic] the rascally Rebs.
As it will undoubtedly be interesting to the readers of the EXPRESS, I will endeavor to give them a short description of our treatment while in the hands of the enemy. For the life of me I could hot help laughing to see Lieut. Up at daylight the next morning, and after a march of about ten miles, passed through the fine little village of Bowling Green. After marching us through the principal streets we passed over the James River to Belle Island, where we remained for three days, and were then paroled and marched to City Point via Petersburg. C, 43d Reg't N. It was attended by three German companies of the 25th Regiment, in full uniform, and Company K, Capt.
Hale Kingsley, and Burgesses Corps, Capt. Thomas, in citizen's dress, wearing badges. The remains were deposited in the vault at the head of State street. David Conley, Co. A, side. E, lung. Martin Colile, Co. Letter from the 43d Regiment. Dear Friend—I have but a moment to devote to replying to your letter, for we are on the skedaddle all the time, taking hardly time to eat or sleep. We left Washington on the 13th of July and marched up through Maryland, crossed the Potomac at White's Ford, followed close behind the Rebels till we crossed the Blue Ridge at Snicker's Gap, where the Rebels made a stand on the south side of the Shennandoah [sic].
We looked at them a couple of days, and then we heard that Mrs. Snicker was going to move the gap, so we had to get on the other side and then put for Washington. Arrived there the 23d, got paid off and equipped, and the whole Corps went on a bum. On the 24th we all got ready to ship for City Point, but a farmer came on and said a "Confederacy" had made his appearance at the Potomac and threw his knapsack across, and would probably make a raid.
So on the 26th we pulled up, and leaving two-thirds of the Corps spilled along the road, we started for Harper's Ferry, passed the Rebels, and reached Harper's Ferry on the 29th; went up the Shenandoah a little distance and camped. So up we got and ran back. The train stopped at Sandy Hook and the troops went on. I presume they will fetch up in Philadelphia or near there. The men are marched death for nothing, and the whole thing is played out.
By George, Sam, don't you come back now, unless you bring several pair of extra legs. Local Affairs. The disposition of our forces the past few days was as follows: The 8th corps, Gen. Crock's command, occupied the extreme left, and rested on Cedar Run; on the centre, and defended by breastworks, was the 19th corps, Gen.
Emory's command; and on the extreme right was the 6th corps, Gen. Wright's command. Early yesterday morning, about 3 o'clock, the 6th corps was aroused by the crack of musketry on the picket line in their front, and about 4 A. But here the disaster that caused so many casualties to our army occurred. The rebels had marched all night through the Luray Valley, and at early dawn crossing the Cedar Run, attacked the 8th corps before they were at all prepared to receive them, and on the first onset they fled in disorder and left their artillery, ambulances and camp equippage [sic] in the hands of the enemy, who, quickly following up their advantage, threw the 19th corps into disorder, and were it not for the bravery of the 6th corps in meeting and repulsing their vigorous assaults, farewell to the Shenandoah Valley.
The battle raged for some three or four hours with great obstinacy on either side, each falling back and again advancing, when a kind of quietus was put on the matter til about 4 p. When the attack was made in the morn Gen. Sheridan was absent either in the city of Martinsburg or Winchester, and hastening to the front, he was received with wild cheering by the gallant 6th, when he said, "Now pitch in, boys; give them h--l; we will camp in our old camping ground to-night.
Our victory at night was complete. Sheridan is a hero. Now for the 43d. Only I would be trespassing too much on your columns, I would send you a copy ofGeneral Orders, wherein they received the thanks of the commanding Generals. Our losses you will find annexed, but we have to lament the fall of our brave old Brigadier General, D.
Bidwell, of Buffalo, who fell while bravely leading his brigade to a charge under a withering fire of the enemy. Casualties in the 43d N. Buck, Sergt. Joseph Rafler, Co.

Resolved, That we sincerely sympathize with his parents and family in their hour of bereavement.
That as a mark of respect to his memory the regiment will attend his funeral and perform for him the last sad rites of a soldier. Resolved, That these resolutions be published, and copies thereof be transmitted to the family of the deceased. Knickerbocker, killed. Koons, killed. Wallace, prisoner. Field and staff officers safe. Baker, bravest of the brave, led ten charges. The 6th Corps took yesterday 2, privates rebels, 1 Brig. General, 20 Captains, 30 Lieutenants. A tremendous shower has separated the combattants [sic] after a fight of seven days.
It was the most desperate fighting of the war. About one hundred wounded, say twenty killed. Koonz, killed; Lieut. Russell, injured; Capt. Captain Y. The enemy succeeded in getting in the rear of the pickets of these two regiments, took them before they fired a gun, then moved down upon the Sixth Maine, which fired a volley, repulsing them, and then retreated to Banks' Ford, together with the Forty-third New York, reaching it in safety being obliged to make their way through brush and slushing.
We rested Wednesday, Thursday and Friday—crossed Friday night—were shoved in front on picket and drove their pickets in on Saturday night—marched to the right towards Fredericksburgh [sic] and entered the place about sunrise Sunday morning, taking a dose of canister from a battery as we crossed a hollow, wounding four and killing one in our regiment, and knocking two or three rifles to pieces in my company; but hurting no one.
No Bethlehem boys hurt that I knew of, excepting Corporal Lasher. The arrangements for the care of drafted men at this rendezvous are now perfected. The war department have assigned squads of men and officers to take charge of the men, who have drawn Uncle Sam's prizes. There are six men and three officers selected for this work from the following regiments: 5th N.
Artillery, 10th N. Artillery, 53d N. Similar detachments a re to come from each other N. The present barracks occupied are those near the old Fair Ground.

Wallace, Thompson and Van Patten and Lts. Departure of Col. Vinton's Regiment.
VINTON, have received marching orders, and will leave this city, by steamer, at four o'clock this afternoon. The regiment numbers men, and is composed of the following companies:—Co. A, Capt. The regiment will be filled up on its arrival in New York. We believe that with the exception of Col. His uncles, the Rev. Quartermaster-General at New York, naturally feel the greatest interest in his success.
He was engaged in engineering in South America at the breaking out of the rebellion. He at once resigned his position there, came to New York and immediately offered his services to Gov. MORGAN, was accepted, has spent his entire time since in organizing his command, and now proceeds today to the field, where we are sure he will give such an account of himself as will justify the high expectations of his friends. Journal, July 16, Vinton has received orders for the immediate departure of the Regiment under his command for the seat of war.
It is now stationed at the Barracks, and numbers about seven hundred rank and file. It is rumored that the Regiment will leave in a boat chartered expressly for them this afternoon, while on the other hand those attached to it say that it is impossible for the men to get ready in so short a notice. Upon arrival in New York their number will be further increased by the addition of four companies recruited in that city. Their departure from this city will revive the recollections of the scenes enacted during the months of May, June and July, and afford the Police an opportunity of accomplishing that which they have frequently attempted but never as yet accomplished—of driving out of the streets all vehicles through which the Regiment may pass.
Crocker, will leave for Washington at 6 o'clock this morning. Colonel Vinton's regiment arrived here yesterday afternoon from Albany, on their way to the seat of war. They came in the steamer McDonald and a barge which she brought in tow, and landed at the foot of Robinson street, North river. From thence they marched to the Park to the music of their drum corps, and partook of a substantial repast provided for them.
They seem to be equal to the average of our troops in appearance, and are fairly drilled. They mustered some men. They will probably proceed to Washington to-day or to-morrow. Some few inaccuracies occurred in our list of the officers of this regiment. Piersons is Lieutenant Colonel and C. Mersereau is First Lieutenant of Company I. Death of William C. Charles H. Rodgers of this city, brother of the late Wm.
Rodgers, who was killed in one of the recent sanguinary battles before Richmond, from Capt. Clark, of Co. D, 43d Regiment, N. To Charles H. Rodgers: Sir. I received yours of the 8th and hasten to reply. I am grieved to inform you that the report of your brother's death is only too true. We had been drawn up in line of battle all day on the memorable 27th day of June, when about five o'clock in the afternoon the enemy with a heavy force attempted to turn our position, with a view probably, of cutting off the retreat of Gen. Porter across the Chickahominy. Our regiment 43d hrld [sic] the right resting on the Chickahominy, with two regiments of Vermonters to support us, if necessary.
For one hour and a half we were subjected to a terrific fire of musketry without cessation. In about the middle of the action the enemy appeared to to be preparing for a charge, when we fixed bayonets. At this moment the enemy poured in a murderous volley. It was at this time your brother fell mortally wounded. The men fought desperately, and the enemy were repulsed, and our men cheered, and your brother raised himself up and faintly cheered with the rest. As brave a soldier as ever stood in action, now lies beneath the sod. He died while being conveyed to the hospital in an ambulance, since which time, owing to rapid movements.
I am unable to inform you what disposal was made of his body. Johns Wilson of this city; J. Lee, groin; W. Shoddy, shoulder; H. McCaffrey, side; Chas. Porter, finger; Philip Hibel, shoulder; W.
