THE BEYENTY•NINTH HIGHLAND REIF
RENT AND THE WAR.
From the Soon:lab American Journal
So many accounts of the battle of Bull Run
have been published, that it seems almosta work
of supererogatiOtifor us to enter now upon any
details connected With that unfortunate engage
ment. Justice, however, to.the Seventy-Ninth
Highland Regiment, N. Y. 0. M., demands that
we should give something like a history of the
part which that regiment has performed in the
service of the country, and the unworthy treat
ment which it has met with.
It is well known to , our Scottish readers gen
teel:o 4hat this regiment was organized a few
years *ince, •!d !. t_. ! •
se a * its pec Mr g >ll*l yin
wearleg"the Creilittlielarten.e -4 On of!
Fort, Scuinter, it *is the tilt regiment in, the
State which offered its. servlttee' to the Govimi
meat. &though it had obtained its fall com
pienient of men - ttfter a few days' recruiting,
considerable dissatlefaction prevailed in the man
ner in which it was treated by the State authori
ties, in refusinvits services- for several weeks,
which produced a partial disorganization of the
curia. The derails of this need not be dwelt upon
now; sufficeitto say, that at last the regiment
was induced tceoffer its services for three years,
which was accepted, and a second time the ranks
were filled, the men mustered into service,
carried to Washington, and placed in camp at
Georgetown, D. C. The regiment consisted of
about 1 000 men. It was, with a very few ex
ceptions, a regiment of mechanics ; there werq
no less than two hundred andfifty stone-cotter'
and masons among them, and the rest were
composed of machinists, brass-finishers, black
smiths, etc. They were a , hardy, strong and
stubborn set of fellows, mostly very skillful in
their several. trades, and would Wive made an
unrivalled corps of sappers and miners. While
at Georgetown, D. C., kir. James Caffieron,
brother of the Secretary of War, was elected
their Colonel ; and, althohgh 'he Was not tho
roughly skilled in military tactics, he palmated
great courage, had a strong love for the High
landers, and, being a Cameron himself, he was
much endeared to the regiment. Being plaoed
under the charge of some West Point cadets,
and the occasional attention of General Ewen—
to whom, more thanto any other officer, is the
State indebted for their tine organization and
effielency—*he men soon acquired considerable
thoroughness in drill ; and, when they • were
marched into Virginia as part of the "Grand
Army," they excited-the admiration of old-Gen
eral Tyler. Being Mostly above the. average
size, of stalwart frames and undoubted con
rage, they formed the material of as tine a re
giment of men as could , be found anywhere,
and, with bare and good .handling, they weld
have done •the country afiroctere service. But
how they were handle& and, how they were
abused, the sequel- will- show. They tbnned
part of Sherman's Brigade, which** con
sisted also of the Thirteenthlliochestete New
York; Second Wisconsin, and the Siziyikiirath -

nesday, July the 17th, they recieved orders to
march towards Renames Jenction, and to pro
vide themselves miththree days' rations, When
in Georgetown, they had oftentimes experience'
ed the evils of. a ,wretchedlyananaged commis
sariat, but these evils grew still more aggravate!
ed. Just thirty minutes before the• hour of
marching each man received about nine crack
ers for three days' rations, and a barrel of raw
salt beef was furnished for each company. This
meat could not be boiled, and the crackers were
consumed on the next day's march: The troops
had a sharp engagement •with the , enemy on
Thursday, and here the first man who fell and
stained the field with his blood was Gordon For
rest, a native-bon' Soitteman, of , the: Bolton
Fur:lieens, The result of this skirmish was inif
fieient to convbie any clear-sighted commander
that the enemy bad a strong position, but the
lesson was of no avail. The Seventy-Nbiththen
fell back, and slept on •the field; • !Next day
(Friday) the poor fellows had not a morsel of
food provided by the commissariat. • All= the
sustenance which they obtained •was from a
neighboring wheat field. They rubbed the ears
of grain between their hands, and eat the ker
nels. What disgeaceful conduct on the part of
those whose duty it was to provide food for the
army Only • thirty miles from the city of
Washington, and the army starving!, Volunteer
regiments are undoubtedly little aajtudnted!with
the minutiar of providing for themselves ;• but •
as they had nob the control of the ocinurdintriat,
it, was the duty of the 'eommanders=thosa
mars of which so • much boast has been
made—to look after the men placed under their
charge. It was their duty to take care of them,
and sbe that theyowanted for nothing ; but, in
stead of endeavoring to ,do his duty, Colonel
Sherman, the general of the brigade, in a• - inost
unfeeling manner, called the regiment a New
York rabble, because they went into a wheat
field to satisfy the cravings °Munger. We re
fer only to the Seventy-gmlib reghnent,,lint
other regiments of the brigade were treatedjirst
as badly. The Sixty-Ninth, fOr example, admit
equally infamous and inhuMert:treatment;:
related by Captain leteagher,) by tier sameporn
entailer. It seemed as if it hid litmi tac
tics'Of the brigadier to reduce the men, and un
fit them for fighting, Tether than put them in
On Saturday, the 20th, the regiment obtaimld
one good meal of crackers and salt pork,. and.
the men felt in good, spirits. On Sunday,
they were awakened; at one o'clock in the morn
ing, for no better purpose than to violate the
Sabbath-day by engaging in one of the most ill
managed battles on record. 'i -- Onwards they
maiched towards Bull Run, for aboutfive miles,
and without time for rest or refreshment they
were rushed into the fight. This was the cases
with all the Union troops. They were filet
compelled to execute a forced march, then with
out rest or food they were led to fight an enemy
strongly entrenched IBA favorable position. The
army should have been halted within two Miles
of theenemy ; wherethey should have restedand
fed before being led into battle. There ie mem
awe for Oen. McDowell and thosereThilars-r-sup
ported Skillful generals—under him for the bad.
treatment of the men before this battle.' The
Seventy-Ninth were 'moved along: road, ex
posed for a half hour to the.iron hail • of a bat
tery before they could fire a volley. But on
they went, steady and firm ; =Being the creek
and up the ascent, breasting a terrific fire of
musketry and cannon, and they wavered, not
until they reached the immediate presence of
the enemy. vain dud againAelyxushed lor
ward, but those formidable batteries could not
be taken by infantry. The officers of the Bev-'
mity-Nthth exhibited undarinted courage ; they
led their men frather.into the -,field and they
suffered more than any, of the other regiments:
Col. Cameron was shot at the head of his infzi—

nephew. Be this true or not, let us say here,
that it is held to be highly dishonorable for ofh
cers to be guilty of such acts. Another case
similar to it once occurred, and it is so peculiar
in its 'relationship, that"ire' cannot forbear" to
quote it. At the battle of Fuentes de Onoro,
in $ a French colonel of the Guard took a
m et from one of his men and shot down Col

coutd ill-spare him ; he was=-one of the best
pi•iiciai builders in America, and many of the
stone steeples in this city have been raised un
der his skilful direction. His command was
well handled -afterwards by . Lietitenalit More,
who received a wound hi the 'shoulder. Capt.
Marton fought bravely and held his men to the
struggle with the tenacity of a true Scot. Capt.
Barclay rallied his men in truly heroic style,
determined not to be outdone in courage by the
senior Captain. Captain Shillinglaw, a fine
young officer, was struck down in the latter
part of the engagement. Captain Joseph Laing,
after bottling his ground till utterly exhausted,
fell into the hands of the enemy ; but the
plucky little Captain was not to be kept in such
company, made his escape, but with several
severe wOunds. Captain Morrison was cool and
collected as if on parade, and would sometimes
survey the field from a tree on his way. Cap
tain „learribh, a valuable officer, unfortunately
fell hate' the Ganda of the enemy. Captain
Walter, although badly wounded in two,plaies,
stood to his - pit' like " a tom. Captain Car
lisle behaved' well inaction and in the, re-:
treat; while being hotly pursu ed by four of the
Meek Horse,was just about being overcome,
when he drily his revolver, and emptied one of
their saddles, when the remaining three scam
pemd off, and by this' lucky shot saved not on
ly hiS own fife, bat that of Captain Morrison,
who was &few rods ahead. Captain Ellis was
quite unwell on the morning of the action„ but
notwithstanding he went fonvird ,in good
'Tillie to the fight. Afuii. the Colonel's fall,
the conuninid devolved . upon Major McClellan
(Lledtenant-Colonel Elliott not being in the
field), Who acted' with deeided coolness and
bravery : during the l 'remainder of the engage
ment.% It is reported that several officers in'
dllfeMat regbnesMi showed the "white feather ;
but no,flinehing,was displayed by a single offi
cer of the Severity-uinth. They lost their col
onel, seven capiains—killed; wounded anti mis
sing-fund over two hundred men altogether.

were stupidly led. they., fell back at first in
tolerable order, but when. they reached the
creek, they were swept into; the whirlpool of
confintion withother regiments. By all accounts
it appears that most of those regMients which
did the least fighting got into the greatest con
ftielon. - '
Theeoidlers of the Seventy-Ninth, 'after the'
battle, made their. way to Fort. Corcoran, and
here they were exposed for eight hours to a
heavy rain. Here again CoL Sherman came
andlooked at thenr, and when eked to allow
them:626l4er in the-stable of his harem the; re
quest was unfeelingly refused. Next day they
were marched into Washington by an order
higher than that of the Brigadier ; but ftOm
the lose of so many 'officers—and the groes ill
treatment which the men had received, the re
mainder of the regiment has become almost
disorganized. These men deserve the aympothy
of Scotemen'everywhere. We' o not say that
they have •been worse treated 'than other regi
ments ; the fact is that the whole. army was
shamefully managedfrom apst to last., and
the American people know and feel this.—
Captain Meagher of the Sixty-Ninth an—edu
cated gentleman—speaks of the brutal treat
ment of his regiment by the Brigadier Gen
era. Justice demand!' that some legal
investigation into the causes of the defeat
shceild.be, made. The regularly-elected West
Point geneas teupassed poor General Pierce of
the Big Bethel affair in every respect. The bat
tle of Bull`Run was not lost for want of 'good
fighting on the part of the soldiers, nor by a
charge of Johnson's reserves, but by the utter
incapacity of the commanders. The reserves
which should have been °nate field, kept well
in hand for" rallying supports; were miles dis

Home Guards remaining in, Springfield. Our
forces slept on the prairie aportion of the night,
and at about sunrise on Saturday morning drove

The attack was made in two oolumns, by
Gens. Lyon and Sttirgite and Gen. Seigle lead
ing a flanking , force of about one thousand
men and four guns on the north of the enemy's
camp. The fight raged from sunrise until one
or two o'clock in, the , afternoon. .
The rebels in overwhelMing force charged on
Qapt i Totten's battery c three distinct, times but
were' repassed with , great slaughter.
Gen. Lyon fell . early in the :day. He had
beeroprevionsly wounded in the leg; and had a
horse shot from under -him. The Calenel,
one of the El , ill/186 regiMenta h av i ng b eam ,
disabled, the boys cried out "General you crime
and ,d us on." He did so and at once put
himself in front, and while cheering the men
onto the charge mceived a' bullet in the left
breast and fell from hie horse. He was asked
if balwas hurt and replied "no not much" but
in a few minutes afterward he expired without
a struggle, ,
Gen. Siegle bad a very severe struggle, and
lost three of his guns. flis artillery horses were
