"We publish in this number two milita
ryorders. One commanding all officers
to seize ail arms, clothing &c; &c, which
had beerr issued by Goremraent to sol
diers, and by them lost or disposed of.
Soldiers have no right to sell or dispose
of arms or clothing: obtained from Gov
ernment, and the persons who purchase
them from soldiers will have to deliver
them up. .-;
All who have Government arras in
this county . are requested to deliver them
pp immediately. There are scattered
ever this county about one hundred mus
kets which Mr. Furnas is ordered to col
lect, i Any person who attempts to re
tain or secrete any of the Government
arms, no. matter how innocently he ob
tained them, will be liable to be arrested
and sent to St. Louis or Leavenworth as
a prisoner, ,., . .
By the telegraphic dispatches we learn
that Illinois has elected Wra. A. Rich
ardson, and Indiana Thos. A. Hendricks
to the United States Senate two of the
most ultra Democrats of the Vallandig
ham school to be found. The prestige
acquired by the victories at the elections
in October, has had the effect to unite all
who' still preserve the name of Democrat
on ihe ' Vallandingham platform. Nine
months ago nine-tenths of the Democrats
repudiated such men as Vallandingham,
Seymour and- Wood. Now, the entire
party' co-operate harmoniously in retar
ding the war as much as possible. Dem
ocrats, who six months ago were urging
a nnittd support of ihe Administration,
and a vigorous : prosecution of the war,
and by their speeches and writings, sub
jected themselves to denunciations from
their brethren as being no better than
abolitionists , hare now wheeled into line,
and are fighting for a "vigorous prosecu
tion' of peace." Almost all democratic
papers are now laboring for a peace or
armistice with the. rebels, which would
inevitably lead to an acknowledgment of
the Southern Confederacy. The object
now aimed at -by the rebels in the south,
and their friends in the north, is to in
ducetthe west to secede from the eastern
States. This is advocated in several lead
ing Democratic papers..

Through the courtesy of Wm. H.
Hoover, County Clerk, we are enabled
to publish the foregoing table. From it
can be learned at a glance the value of
the personal property "and real estate of
the county and each precinct ; also the
school tax and the amount delinquent in'
each precinct. This table will be useful
for reference hereafter in years to come
for ascertaining the increase in wealth
in the various precincts.
It will be seen that Brownville precinct
pays nearly one-third of the tax of the
county. Of the perjonal property it con
tains about one-half. The precinct that
stands second, with regard to amount of
both personal property and real estate, is
Of the tax assessed in the county, a
little over one-fourth is delinquent. The
amount delinquent in the' various pre
cincts stands as follows :. Brownville and
Nemaha City, a little less than one
fourth;. Peru nearly one-third; Glen
Rock nearly one-half ; Lafayette, one
half; Douglas, one-third; Aspinwall,
one-fourth; Bedford,, one-fifth; Wash
ington, one-eighth ; Benton, cne-thirty-
Tht following table shows the amount
of ' "money assessed ia the various pre
cincts in 'this, county, for' shool purposes.
The total amount assessed in this county
is S1.5S0 77. In addition to this we will
receive about $1,500 from the Territo

IJeabqxtarters 1st Indian Regiment, IT. Qj
' Camp Bunt, December 19th. 1862. j
Dear Fisher: You have-been sadly
neglected, rs well as other of my old
friends in -that ilk, but "I will try and
make amends in future. ,:
Long before this reaches its destina
tion you will have heard of .our move
ments and "battles for the right," through
the telegraph, that annihilator of time
and space ; but doubtless a short account
of our doings will not come amiss froni
one who was "thar or tharabouts."
In rogard to the battle of Fort Wayne,
I . would state that the newspaper ac-i
counts of that fight are greatly exagera
ted.. Our actual loss was but three
killed, and some ten wounded. Two of
the killed were from Nemaha county.
The enemyfs loss was about three ..times
as greaL ' Though not a bloody or hotly
contested field, it. was a very important
victory, and added to the already envia
ble reputation of our Western troo.ps for
dare-devil courage and . unconquerably
determination. Capt, Crawford, at the
head of two hundred of the Kansas 2d,
(among which were all the Nemaha
boys), charged a battery of four howitz
ers, and "succeeded in capturing them, "in
the face of an entire, regiment of Seceih
placed ther to support them. .The gun
ners, h6tvevr, stood their ground nob'y--"-almost
every one of them being either
killed or wounded,, and the guns spat
tered with their blood from one end to
the other. The Kansas 2d, Col. Cloud
and the 1st Indian, under Lieut. Colonel
Wattels, of Bellevue, N. T., were the
only regiments engaged in the fight -the
balance; of the . command not arriving !
. ,:i .u . i i. J i - - ill
The enemy numbered 4,000, and were
under' the command of a Major, whose
name I do' not remember; den. Cooper
having raised his spirits so high, by that
ancient and well established method,
known as "pouring spirits down," that
his body grew dizzy with viewing the
sublime height to which they had arrived.
By easjA marches we reached Rhea's
Mills, on the evening of the 29th of No
vember, and pushing an to Cane Hill,
eisht miles distant, attacked the rear
g'uard of , the enemy on the morning; of
Sunday the 30th ; the main body having
retreated before we came' up. We had,
however, quite a running fight of some
seven miles, during which the enemy at
tempted to make a stand on the'road
leading to Van Buren ; but were charged
upon by the 2d and 11th Kansas and 1st
Indian. ; Here we had a short but-severe
engagement, and compelled them to fall
back among the mountain, and it being
now quite dark it was impossible to fol
low them. We lost about forty in killed
and wounded, among the former was Col.
Jewell, and the latter Col. Johnson, of
the 6th Kansas. '.
Here we went into camp on the . hills
surrounding the pictresque little town of
Cane Hill, where we remained until
Sunday rooming, the 7th inst. Mean
while the enemy was constantly receiv
ing large reinforcements, and our Gen.
was aware, through his scouts, that they
designed to attack us; but from what
point wa3 unable to determine. The ar
my, however, was kept constantly pre
pared for. any movement which might be
made by the rebels. Friday and Satur
day the skirmishing between the pickets
was incessant, and on Saturday evening,
about five o'clock, our pickets were re
inforced by several companies of the Kan
sas 2d, and Co. H, of the llthand quite
a little fight took place, in which we had
five wounded and the enemy lost twenty
one killed and wounded.
Early Sunday morning the skirmish
ing was renewed among the mountains,
but it was soon perceived that the fight
on the part' of the rebels was but a feint
to cover the operations of the main body,
which had passed up the road leading to
Fayetteville, with the design of outflank
ing Gen. Blunt, and cutting off our trains.
Gen. Blunt had a strong cavalry force
posted on that road, to keep the enemy
in check, and also to advise him of their
movements ;' but by some blunder they
allowed a column of the enemy, 12,000
strong, to pass them without opposition,
and neglected to inform Gen. Blunt until
late in the morning. The General then
ordered the 6th Cavalry, under Colonel
Judson, to fall upon their rear, which he
did, causing a delay, enabling General
BI"unt to withdraw his division from Cane
Hill. Meanwhile Col. Judson was him
self attacked in the rear, by another
column of-Secesh, and fell back. to his
division,, which reached Rhea's mills
about 1 o'clock in the afternoon. Ere
this time' the thunder of the artillery
plainly' told that the enemy had met
Herron's troops, and that a desperate
struggly was taking place, some six miles
further up the road to Fayetteville
Cloud and Weer's brigades, of the first
division, moved rapidly to the scene .of
action, and took up their line of battle.-
The enemy were formed in a dense
wood, and the 10th and 13th Kansas were
sent into the wood to engage them until
our arrangments could be completed.
Robb's, Allen's' and Hopkin's batteries
were formed in a field, in front of the
rebels, supported by tee 11th Kansas.
The right wing of the 11th. under Capts.
Crawford and Russell, was shortly after
ward ordered to the left of the 10th and
13th Kansas. Three companies of the
2d Kansas, and the 1st Indian, were
formed on the left cf the right wing of
the' 11th. Here the 1st Indian, under
the Command of Lieut. ' Col. Wattles,
made a most gallant charge ; penetrating
the enemy's lines further than any other
regiment in the field. In fact they went
so far that one of the Iowa regiments,
mistaking them for Secesh, poured into
them two volleys, which obliged them to
retire in order io save themselves from
their friends. Col. Wattles did excellent
service with his Indians, and worked them
exceedingly well and rapidly, consider
ing that every order had to go through
an interpreter before it could reach them!
Capt. Tum-tus-te-nuc-chup-co gallantly
held his ground firing his rifle and then
his six shooter, and when the enemy had
advanced to within twenty paces of him,
he threw the empty revolvers at the fore
most, and executed a "masterly retreat,"
escaping the shower of bullets aimed at
him. Up to the time of Gen. Blunt't ar
rival the fortunes of the day had gone
against Gen. Herron, owing to the fact
that the rebels outnumbered him three
to one, and his troops worn out With
forced marches, Gen. Blunt '" arrival,
however, soon made a change in the pro
gramme more favorable to our troops.
From the time of his appearance until
after dark, : the thunder of the cannon,
the raaling of small arm3, and the shouts
and yells of the corabattants, was a ter
rible and most exciting scene. Night,
however, put an end to the struggle, and
our- men withdrew from the woods in
good order, and took up a favorable po
sition for offensive and defensive purpo
ses where they remained all nigh under
arms ready, to renew the fight . early in
the morning. Hindman, however, re-
bury the dead and remove the wounded,
which was granted by Gen. Blunt.
During the armistice the rebels ikedad
died, nor stopped until lhey pfaced the
Arkansas between themselves and the
"hirelings" of the North.
Their loss was, as near as can be as
certained, about 2.500, in killed and
whounded. Their loss of officers was
very large. Among the killed was Col.
Strain, Acting Briaadier General. Our
Toss was 1500 in killed, wounded and
prisoners.; Daring the armistice our
officers and men mingled freely with the
enemy, each finding ' many old-time
friends in the . opposing ranks. Major
Hubbard, of, the 1st Missouri, was taken
prisoner.by the rebel Major Emmet Mc
Donal, who had formerly been taken
prisoner by. a Federal force under Maj.
Hubbard. In speaking of the battle to
Lieut. Watts,; of the'lst Indian, he re
marked: "What pleased me most,
Watts, in the whole fight, was my cap
turing Hubbard. I managed to get close
to him, and drawing my revolver I lev
eled it at him; and says I, 'come to me,
Hubbard,' and he came.
Our wounded suffered considerably
through the extreme smartness and re
markably heroic conduct of one of our
surgeons.; - Our ambulances had -made
several trips to the battle field, bringing
off the wounded wit hout molestation
from theenemys "pickets, when the above
mentioned individual, (1 m sorry 1 don t
know his name) called one of them to
him. He advanced in perfect good faith,
and without fear of treachery, knowing
it to be a surgeon in the performance of
his duties. He possessed himself of the
sentry's gun and tried to take him pris
oner, but Secesh scampered through the
brush, and . before the ambulance had
