LizsvniftVoirrit CITY, t • ,
Kansas:, Aug. ,1, '62. I •
Dear Brother—Yours of the 23d ult.
has just reached me, .for which favor you
will accept my thanks. I am glad to
linow,;that you argil well, and can say the
sane in regard to iny own health.
- You ask if I have ever yet been in any
engagement? To !which Imtust answer
that as yet, I have not! been called into
any, deadly - conflict, although we are fre
quently. sent out in pursuit of a class of
desperadoes known !nand about Kansas
as bushwhackers and jayhawkers. Many
of these rebels hae ' been captured . and -
confined in . the prison ! at the Fort . ; and
our guard-houses are also filled with these
customers continually. , One of them wag
shot at the Fort l t Mmiday, and several !
-others are awaitin the same fate. These
are mostly Missourians who come over and
infest tia , state, *Plundering And killing
our loyal - citizens.
The 3d WiscOtniin buiily engaged in
hunting, capturing, and bringing to kis-
tice, these miserable offenders of the gov
law, life and property. How
lqng we shall remain here is uncertain.—
We may be called away at an hones no-.
tice, or we may remain here a long time;
the prospects, hoWever,' -are that we shall
not leave the state till , late in the fall, if
we do the coming Winter.: But his all in
the future, and we den% know in war
time, what a day May bring forth.
. We fear the war will be prolonged for
a considerable length of time—fur a much
longer period than we, had entieipated a
few weeks since, when we were gaining
Tepeitted victores over the rebels.
But. we still hope that - when oar full
number of troops !nowicalled for-shall be
mustered into the serVice, that bur Onal
.victories will be !achieved; and 'this ac- .
cursed - rebellion !crushed, and the war
come to a speedy termination. It appears
to me-if all our leading men and• officers
of oar -army were true Men, having the in
terests of the goVernnient . at heart—that
we should experience .altogether a differ ;
ept State 'of things; but we fear-that it is
the most desirable scheind of a large num
berof our officers in }command, to pro
long the'war for the sole purpose of filling
their own coffers-rofinhking money them,
selves, regardles4 of the value of human
life, and public treasure. But we look for
ward with the fond hope that the Regi
ments now being,, farnied will come .into
the field with true hearts and honest in
' tensions, with a view only of-crushing Out
I the rebellion. Then, and not till then,
may we hope fora cruAing out the relel
' lion. Then, ma - not': till then, may we
hope for a tertninatiomot the war, and a
_re-establishment oaf a peaceful and united
Goverurrteut.l F 4 4.-..npvh
cies that now snrround us; . baniAh the
traitors- front our! owncamps ; and I be
lieve that the shoats of victory would be
heard broadcast Over 'our whole land.—
But I have written you inure upon the
puluject of war than I jutendocl, but I can
not dose without ienteriug upon another
YOU can lie down undisturbed with .
your rest secured lot the night. With us
it is a different thing. '' We are liable to
be called out 'at), anylnoineut to rpiell
:some disturbance, or perhaps take some
;prisoner off to the luck.up. We hive,
however, some pleasant times. A soldiers
life is mixed with sunshine and storm:—
We have the bitter with the sweet; and
,more hitter than Sweet::
• I have not told -you What our arms con
sist ot. They are sabre, carbine and re
volver, with which we ought to do good
execution. Our horseS are generally of
the first order.. Ii have a very good horse
which I ride wh6l on duty, I have - been
appointed - company saddler, which relieves
me from lunch hard labor, such as,stand
ing-guard,'itc. I ,haveleen for about two
weeks some seven wilds south of Leaven
worth City, itteoinpatik with some twelve
others, with- a herd of about one . hundred
and-fif t y. horses belonging to the govern
ment, but we leave here' to-morrow for
the city, -when We shall resume—our du
ties there. -

Kansas is a very good farming country
for all kinds of gram except wheat—and
the wheat crop is good this year—but we
learn that-there is n 6 :dependence on the
wheat crops here ,in eonsequenee of the
draught; but there is an abundance of
- rain this year. :The weather is hot, al
though I think not much more SO. than We
have it east at this season of the year.—
The warm -season' continues later hero

We dare say that in nearly. , every elec

many of these gallant fellows in our streets
with arms in slings; others with arms off,
?and some otherwise maimed. These men,
generally, are poor and many of them de
pendent; melan.cholly expression
and attenuated forms show very plainly
their indigent condition, while many of
them we know to have seen',prosperous
and joyous, days. These men are cripples
for life, made such by service in the field;.
