Civil War Newspaper Clippings

PERSONAL.—Lieut. Hugh MOONEY of the 155th Regiment N. Y. Vols., who was severely wounded in the shoulder during the terrible Friday's charge, arrived home yesterday. He is a brave officer, and has the wishes of many friends for his speedy recovery.

Death of Two Nyack Soldiers.
Again we are called upon to record the death of soldiers who went forth to battle from our village. Nyack has furnished a full share of men to take part in the struggle against rebellion, and many of them have fallen while gallantly facing the foe. THOMAS ACKER, of Company A, 155th Regiment N. Y. Volunteers, died in the Hospital at Washington, on the 22d of June, from wounds received in the battle of Cold Harbor, on the 5th of that month. JAMES R. ISHERWOOD, of Company G, 7th Regiment N. Y. Heavy Artillery, also died in the Hospital at Washington, on the 28th of June, from wounds received in the battle before Petersburgh. Each leaves a wife to mourn his loss.

WOUNDED.—The telegraph yesterday announced the death of Henry Schaup, 100th Regiment, in Hampton hospital.

THE 155TH BUFFALO REGIMENT.—This regiment, some four hundred strong, under command of Col. McMahon from Buffalo, passed through the city last evening, on the Central Railroad, en route for New York. A number of the men deserted while here, and five of them were arrested during the night by the police, and lodged in the Station House. It is said that a portion of the regiment was dissatisfied about the non-payment of bounties, and "skedaddled" yesterday morning, leaving not half of the number requisite to make a regiment to proceed on the journey. So says the Rochester Union of Saturday.

THE CAPTURED MEN OF THE 155TH.—It will be seen from the telegraph of Saturday that the story in regard to the capture of Company "I," 155th regiment, has dwindled considerably. Only six men are now reported taken prisoners. Only four companies of this regiment, as now organized, were raised in Buffalo, and if we are not much mistaken, Company "I" is not one of these.
