From a private letter from one of the lino officers of the 94th regiment, we are permitted permitted to take a few incidents of the fight us concerned the McLean Ihivb and their . ir. ...Ml J....l.H-.o J....l.H-.o J....l.H-.o l. ;..t.,oUt;i.,r to the numerous friends ot our regiment. Speaking of the officers, he sajs: "Col. Orme, acting Brigadier Cipnenil, ih one o of the most cool and collected mon in buttle He was continually on the field, regardless of the balls that were dmnpim: around him like hail, and apparently unconscious of danger, rode along the whole line, watctnng the different movements, and at the time smoking his nino. One of Ins orderlies was woiiiH ,.J tilose to him. One thing ji loaned me. He was with tho 9th whenever whenever duty did not (till him to another portion portion of hi brigade. Col. MeNuIta i another of the sume stamp, yet with all his fearless, determined will, has his wits about him, and looks to the interest of his men, giving them all the advantage possiblo. One great qualification for an officer he possesses he never gets confused. He wouH ride up and down the line, enoournirine his men, and giving them directions how to fire, seemingly during the enemy' bullcsJrike hiui. He 11 a mun of superior judgemeut. To tell you the truth, I have been greatly deceived as to hit qualities, in any way you may take him. Major Laughlin is also a man of excellent qualities cool, calm and deliberate, and prompt and willing to lead out. The officers and men have great confidence in our lender; I think they vuuld lead them to fuce almost anything. All praise is due the men uf the 94th fur the gallant manner in which tbey stood up to the work. It is said by the rebels that the fish killed scores of "butternuts." The mark in the trees and fence slmwed they aimed and h it about right the rebels were fut regiments deep, and but a short distunce of! we could ir 't help but hit a great noun.
