Among th*intcrestiug incidents that have occurred in Genoral b'tone's column, concerning tho aC'alr nt Ba!!'8 Bluff, are the following, which I learn l)y a communica tion with Captain Mnckie. Tho first duty which Goner 1 8t"no performed after returning frc rn Virginia and roa, Ii ing his quarters at Iooleivllle, without delaying a lit"' merit for refreshment or change of dross, although for tho two dav s preoed ng ho had been exposed to a drench ing rain, was to visit tho hospitals, whore the wounded lay who hud done so nobly on tho '.list inst. With a kind word and hopoful sympathy for every otic, he was lilm solf cheered by tho contented and even hopny expres sions of sutisfae'tii n from the wounded men, who mani fested the most earnest desire to get well soon, so as to get another e haute at tlui rebels. On Thursday evening the Fifteenth MassacusettB regi. mcnt , which is em-amp- d on the plain on which Goneral Stone's tent is pitched, held its first l arade sinco th? battle. The score wns impressive and touching. Ltss than half Di numerical force of tlio regiment before tho battle was piosent. Some companies marched into lino with less than twenty men, many of them without armsi mauy without uniforms, but none without brave and manly hi arts. After the par ado the regiment was formed in square, and their noble and gallant Col' nel Pevens made them an address, to which even a faithful verbal report would do injustice, for no description could reproduce the tender, subdued forvor wi.h which the Colon* I first spoke, ti.o electric sym pathy by which his men wore afltctod, or the earnest dotermination with which the question win askedund answered, " Soldiers <f Massachus< its, men of Worcester county, with these fearful gni>t. in your lines, with tho recollection of tho terrible struggle of ilomLiy fr?eh ujioa your thoughts, with the knowledge of the bereaved and soul-stricken ones nt homo, weeping for those whom they will see no more on eat th, with thai hospital before your ey< s filled with wounded and maimeJ comrades, I ask you now whether you arc ready again te meet tho traitorous foo who are endeavoring to subvert our government, and who are crushing under tho Irvu heel of despotism the liberties ef a part of our country ? Would you 60 next week? Would yen go tomorrow? Would go this moment ?" And one ftearty "Yis " burn from every lip. No man who knows what th.it no bio reirlment did an j tho 21st inst. oould doubt them. Tlieir Colonel had him self stood their sponsor Id the baptismof lira, and Um question was a neodlcsa one; bntias "Iron sharpeneth iron bo doth a man tftc fuee of his friend." A good deal has been said tn same of tho papors, appa rently with tho obJoct of exoitmg a sympathy for Gene ral Baker ?pou false greunds, about his sad presents mcnt s of death, and bin soldierlike obedience of orders which his presentiments tokl him would end in lit death. Whatever those presentiments might have bc?a> they oould hare bad no referenee to tho affair of lionday, for Chptain Hackle, between two and tliree o'clock on lionday rooming, carrk-d to him verbally Gen. Stone's ordore in reference to moving his brigade. Ho found Col. Baker in bed, and was detained In conversation with him for half an hot*. The Colond ws cheerful and hope ful, and con versoil about tho future and his participation Its aflhirs without a single shadow of doubt er anxiety. Among other interesting incidents of tho conversation, it may be mentioned tliat Oiptain ifackie expressed his ad" miratiou of tho regiment ef rhiladeli>hia Fire Zouaves, which he had seen frequently on parade, nud li is belief that they would acquit themselves nobly if they wore i put in the front of battle. Cok'tibl Baker's reply waa: j "I believe all my men will do their duty, Captain, but I owo it to my Californium to giro th' tn tho first chiuioo, anil I shall lead them into battle. '> Some hourti later, after the dispositions for the engaga ment had all boon made, Colonel Baker, with his p?na, visited General Stone, at bis position on tho hill abora Edwards' Ferry. They had a private conversation toge ther, Gen. Btono explaining to liim the important dktpo. sitions on the Virginia side. As Colonel Baker lert Gene ral Stone, In passing Captain Vadcle, who was standiog near, he dr?w o(T his glove, and aliakir.g hands with groat warmth and soeming happiness, siiM, "Well, Captain, wo are going at It at last, and we will give a good account of ourselves." Tho ropiy was, "Good li*k, and safe return, General;" to which ho laughingly rejoinod, "All will lio right,'' and then, going to his stair, ho mounted and gnlioped off. As a bravo, tru^liearted man, whom tho country conkl illy ! spare, whether as a patriot, a statesman or a soldier. Colonel Bake- deserve* and will receive every meed of honor, respect sad sympathy: but to invite for his memory a sympathy resting open insinuating against other men, as bravo, high minded, discreet and trast" worthy as any In the kind, is an experiment which will neithor add laurels te tho dead nor pluck any from thc brow of the Mving. GKN. LANIIEB ANT> TJTE BALL4* B1CFF BATTLE. Urn question has been askod why General lender was absent from his brigado at the battle ef Bnll'a Bluff, in which one of hln regiments ? tho Twentieth Massaclio wjtto ? port ioljia Lai. lie was tn Washington at tlio time, nmier special osders train the government. On hearing of ' lb" engagement he immetMe^y proceedod toPoolosviila, and took j>art to tho action tho next <J*j- at r<fwarda' Ferry, whore he did good service, for which he lias been ccropMmented by thc onnimapdlng Genoral. IJu ntnv lies wounded at his ywMrs in WMlngton. Uoacral IjmJer was mack sore severely wounded than was at first reports. Be was shot while on foat , enoou. raging two oumpontaa of his men, to tho extreme u4~ ant too, to treventareglmmfcaf the enemy oocni<ying a ; woofod em'.nonoe commanding our position at Dd wards' Berry, whkife eminanoe was regarded by the General as vary valuable as a stratogte point. This be effected by sheltering his man behind tho natural defences of tits place, by tho exc.-ikot marksmanship of tho Andrew's 1 sharpshooters, and by the enemy's never being able to j ascertain fbo numbers opposed to them. Gen. Lander rtmaino* in tha il ld for an hour after being wounded, and until tlio enemy was oorap'etely repnlcod He was brought to this city, and has been visitad by several members of tho Cabinet, who complimented hkn highly on his gallantry and good conduct. General McOellan, on hearing of his arrival, called upon General lander, and Bent his brother, Br. McClollan, of Philadel phia, to examine tho General's wound. General Scott has axpreflBSd much solicitude for General Lander's speedy recovery. Tire REMAINS OF COLONEL BAKER. OoJonel Baker's body has been embalmed.
