Also enclosed find schedule D. E. F., taken
by Ex Governor Bigler, to whom lam greatly
indebted for the services this day rendered me
in the examination of the sick and wounded of
the Pennsylvania Volunteers now in this city.
There are at Fort McHenry some fifty pa
tients, Pennsylvanians, who are convalescent.
I did not visit them, for I had neither time or
strength, bet have made such arrangements as
will enable me to have their cases stated in de
tail if desired by your Excellency. I learn that
there are quite a number of Pennsylvanians in
private families in this city, taken there by
their friends. Enquiry after such would not be
a part of the e business upon which you sent me.
At the several hospitals, I did not look at their
books, but went into the wards and conversed
personally with each individual whose liable I
have given you ; those marked D, E, F, ex-
Gov. Bigler conversed with personally. Mr.
Hartshome,formerly of Chester county,Penna.,
gave me the use of his Finite carriage, and
rendered his personal assistance. The different
wards of the hospitals I found all clean, the
nurses kind, generally from the New England
states; but there is something wrong, either in
the military or medical Department that calls
for reform. "Red tape" should not bind a
sick or wounded soldier from Pennsylvania in
Baltimore for any considerable time.
Every State in the Union I found represent
ed, but Pennsylvania by far exceeds any other
State, let the estimate be made upon any basis
you pleas% By a close examination, you will
see that there are men in these hospitals that
there is no good reason why they were not
long since discharged. The first excuse, and the
most general one given to a soldier applying
for his discharge or leave of absence, is that he
has no description papers, and those who have
these rapers and who aro honestly entitled to a
discharge or furlough, too often get but little
satisfaction when they apply for it.
The wish is universal on the part of the sick
and wounded, shared in by their female nurses,
that they be taken to Philadelphia or sent
to their homes.
I respectfully recommend to your excellency,
that you obtain an order from the Secretary of
War for the removal of all Pennsylvanians,
sick and wounded, now in Baltimore; that you
charter a steamboat, send them under a careful
superintendence to Philadelphia, and from
thence to their friends.
You can judge of the necessity of some ono
being here to receive and care for the Penn
sylvania sick and wounded, as they come in
from the south. You will see from an exam
ination of the detailed statements herewith
sent you, that many of these persons have been
here for month -4, and I was too often told by
many of them that I was the first Pennsylva
nian who had enquired for them. .
John Lurch, 104th regiment, from Bucks
county, Capt. Corcoran, co. 0, just brought out
dead. Went to the door to hear funeral service;
clergyman Episcopal; services were impressive;
soldiers with their camp hymn books sang "0
where shall rest be found."
Your obedient servant,
M. B. LOWRY
HON. M. B. LOWRY, - - -
Srs :—Your report of the condition of the
sick and wounded of Pennsylvania in the va
rious hospitals of Baltimore, has been received.
I have applied to the authorities at Washing
ton to have them all removed to hospitals
within the State, where they can have - the
benefits of the care and attention provided for
them, and enjoy the presence and kindness of
their friends. I have also commissioned a gen
tleman who will remain permanently in Balti
more to attend to them upon their arrival
I regret that a recent order of the War
Department prevents the granting of furloughs
to soldiers In the hospitals, and trust that the
Secretary will see the propriety of its rccission.
that all able to bear removal, may be permitted
to return to their homes until their health is
Please accept my many thanks for the
promptness and efficiency with which you have
executed my commission.
I am with much respect,

LIST OF TER SICK AND WOUNDED
We print this afternoon, a long ~,z1 graphic
account of sick and wounded Pen—ylvanians,
who were engaged in the recent battles before
Richmond. To make room for this account we
are necessarily compelled to defer other impor
tant matter. It will bo seen that the wounded
in these battles, named in the list printed, are
not seriously endangered, and consist mostly of
flesh wounds, or injury in the hands or arms.
Those who were wounded seriously in the legs,
have fallen into the hands of the enemy. The
list as published is as complete a return as
has yet been made of the condition of our
sick and wounded. Its preparation reflects
great credit on the industry of its author.
7118 TENDER OF TROOPS BY THE
The following letter from Gov. Curtin puts
to rest some misapprehension in regard to the
unanimity which existed among the loyal gov
vrnors of the loyal states, in the tender of
troops to the President of the United States.
The letter is addressed to the Evening Bulletin,
on account of certain statements which ap
peared in that journal on this subject:
EXECUTIVE CHAMBER, HARRISBURG,
July 6th, 1862.
the Editor of the Acuity Bulletin:
In answer to the inquiry which appears in
the Evening Bulletin of this evening, I deem it
just to the Governors of lowa and Delaware to
make an explanation as to the memorial pre
sented to the President last week, by the Gov
ernors of loyal States, offering additional troops
to suppress the rebellion.
At the time the memorial was prepared, we
could not reach, by telegraph, either Govornor
Kirkwood or Burton, and it was sent to Wash
ington without replies from them. On my re
turn to Harrisburg, on the morning of the 4th
Inst., I received a letter from Governor Burton,
asking that his name be signed to the memo
rial, and expressing, for the people of Dela
ware, his cordial approval of the offer, and his
willingness to co-operate to any extent, in all
just measures for the active prosecution of the
war for the suppression of the rebellion.
The letter of Governor Burton was immedi
ately transmitted to the War Department, and
there is no doubt his name has been appended
to the memorial, and that the public will be so
Failing to reach Governor Kirkwood, I united
in a despatch with Governor Morgan, of New
York, to Messrs. Grimes and Harlan, Senators
from lowa, asking them to call at the War De
partment, and, if they were willing to assume
the responsibility, to sign the name of the Gov
ernor to the memorial. I have a letter from
them in which they say they called at the De
partment to sign the name of the Governor, as
they knew it would meet his entire approba
tion, but that the memorial had already been
published. Thera can be no doubt the Gover
nor of lowa will signify his approbation.
I am, very respectfully, yours &o.
A. G. dIJIITIN.
—While on this subject, we deem it due to,
the truth to rofer to a telegmiti which ap
peared in the New York city papers, sent
out from Albany. The author of the dispatch
in question,with the precipitation peculiar to the
people of New York, claims for Gov. Morgan
all the credit of proposing a tender of troops
by the loyal governors to the President, when
the real facts of the case are, that the proposi
tion had been prepared and submitted to sev
eral of the Executives in question, before Gov.
Morgan, of New York, knew that there was
such a movement being discussed. This vo
racity for credit and reputation amounts to a
mania, which is leading the people of New
York into all sorts of practicell of falsehoood
and false pretence. The state and the people
would be respectable, were it not for these
THE EIGHTY-.7HIRD REGIMENT.
In the late battles on the line of march to
Richmond, it would be ungrateful and unwise
to make a distinction between the Pennsylva
nians there engaged. All behaved with equal for
titude, daring and gevotion All seemed animated
with the sole purpose of achieving
. a victory,
or yielding their lives in the struggle, rather
than retire in defeat. Among those from this
state particularly distinguished, is the Eighty
third Regiment. From information which we
have received this morning, we are induced to
believe that more,than one-third of the Eighty-,
third are either in the hands , of the enemy or
were killed in the encounters 'of last week.—
This is a terrible destruction in a regiment
composed of so many brave men. CaPt.M'Lean
of the Eighty-third was shot in the eye and
fell dead instantly, and as he fell a charge of
cavalry was made over his body. This is only
one incident of the battle, going to show the
terrific force and energy of the struggle.
—The Eighty-third is mainly made up of re
cruits from Erie and Crawford counties. We
sympathize with those who are to feel in an
guish the carnage of battle in this regiment.
IRA C. Mixon= appears as the author of a
batch of sophistries and falsehoods, in the Pa.
triot this morning, which he says he had no op
portunity to deliVer in the doughface conven
tion that was in session in this city on the
Fourth inst. Mitchell of course intends this
production as an advertisement in Luziarne
county, where he has hung out his shingle,
having left. Centre county for Centre county's
good. He is a mere adventurer, possessing
considerable brains, bat entirely void of politi
cal honesty or personal veracity. He has been
an advocate of all sorts of politics and religions,
and before he ends his career, we expect to see
him embrace the delectable doctrines of Brig
ham Young. In the 'address referred to,
Mitchell talks about diverting the public
moneys from military uses, and prates of ex
travaginces and fanatacism, as if he had been
an honest man all the days of his life. Had
he devoted the time he wasted on this produc
tion, to a history of his career in Centre county
and his performances while playing soldier in
Hollidaysburg and this city, he would, halve en
lightened the public as to the real facts of di
vesting money from the public service.
If the Democratic party of Pennsylvania
must depend on such a Ratiias Mifehell for the
exposition of its principles and the defence of
Its policy, it is in a sorry plight, indeed.
IN LOOKING OYER run NAMES of soldiers wound
ed in battle, wo oecAsionally meet those'of men
we know—knew when peace lulled us all with
the feeling of security, and yet even then, the
fiends who are now conducting were then
also organizing rebellion. Among the names
of the fallen brave that have elicited our most
profound regret, we notice that of Lieutenant
afeElhone, of the 12th Regiment, U. S. A. He
is a native of Philadelphia, and perhaps of
all the young men lately appointed to position
in the regular army, he is most eminently
fitted for a soldier. Ardent, yet cool and dis
creet, impulsive and yet calm in his judgments
and purposes, he is organized for a soldier and
well qualified for heroic deeds But the young
Lieutenant has fallen into the hands of the
enemy, wounded and a prisoner in rebeldorn
before he has scarcely entered on that brilliant
career for which he seemed destined. Surely the
deeds of such men must become the richest
inheritance that this generation can bequeath
to that which is to follow.
