Our Killed and Wounded at the Battle of Fair Oaks!

The details of this terrible and fiercely fought battle, are slowly coming to hand. The loss in killed, wounded and missing is a fearful one, and especially have the regiments from Western Pennsylvania suffered severely. We give below as carefully prepared list of the casualities in the 61st and 105th Regiment as it is possible for us to obtain at this time. It is doubltess incorrect in many particulars.

105TH REGIMENT Col. McKnight escaped with a slight bruise. Lieut-Col. Corbett is reported killed. Company Officers.--Killed--Captain Dowling, of Jefferson Co,; Lieut. Carig, Jefferson Co.; Lieut. Cumcuminsky.-Wounded--Capt. Duff, of Jefferson Co.; Capt. Kirk, of Indiana County.; Capt. Thompson of Jefferson Co.; Capt. Greenawalt, of Westmoreland; Lieutenant Markle, Westmoreland, and Lieut. Gaggie, of Jefferson Co. Company K. (Capt. Thompson)--Killed--Corporal Calvin Adair, Corp. Robt. Patterson. Wounded--Thos. Husbath, J. H. Peelor, George Snyder, Martin Smith, J.J.

61ST REGIMENT Col. Rippey, of Pittsburg, Lieut.-Col. Speer, Maj. Sweet, and Adjutant Miller, Killed. Company A, (Captain Kreps, of Indiana Co.) Privates Weaver, Faily, Short, McQuown, J. E. Allison, McCune, Wilson Kinter (supposed;) Wash. Cessna, Wm. Donahoo, killed. Lieut. Pollock, wounded--eft at Marine Hospital, Portsmouth, Va.; *Lieut.

B. Mott, Joseph Rager, Van Stewart, Wm. Shaffer, James Chambers, And. Pierce, *Thomas Moore and Sergeant J. M. Brewer, wounded; Segt. Roland taken prisoner, and Alex. Moore, missing. Those marked with a * are in the different Hospitals in Philadelphia. For much of the above information we are indebted to Hon. J. K. Thompson, who has just returned home from a visit to Philadelphia. He visited the Hospitals and reports the wounded as doing well. We will only add that the parents and friends of the deceased and wounded soldiers have the sympathies of the entire community. 4
