Company E (Davis Guards), Acton. - 6th Reg. Organized in 1857, and named in honor of Capt. Isaac Davis, who fell at Concord North Bridge, in 1775. The company was formed the same year that the monument was erected in Acton to commemorate the services of her gallant sons who fell at the opening of the Revolution. News of the capture of Fort Sumter was received in Acton on the morning of the 15th of April, and at 6 o'clock, P. M., the same day, orders were received by the Guards to join their regiment, to march for Washington immediately. They had met for drill, and held themselves in readiness for weeks, and the summons, though unexpected, did not find them wholly unprepared. Notice was immediately dispatched to the several members of the company, many of whom resided at a distance of several miles, to meet at their armory in the town hall, at 4 o'clock the next morning, prepared to go to Washington. Many of the members were engaged all night long, either in rallying their comrades, or in making hasty, preparations for their departure. At length morning dawned, cold and raiuy. The bells were rung long before daylight, and soon after the appointed hour the company assembled, to the number of about forty. After a little delay, a few parting words, and a brief but patriotic speech from Capt. Tuttle, they took their departure (in open wagons) for Lowell, in a drenching rain, amid the hearty cheers of all present. They started a little after daylight, and reached' Lowell at 7} A. M.
August 3. The company returned home, and their reception was spirited and grand. The town, at a meeting held for the purpose, had voted a liberal sum, to be expended in suitably celebrating the day. Refreshments and music were provided, and speakers addressed them; and three volunteer military companies, organized, drilled, and equipped with special reference to the occasion, performed escort duty, and, with Capt. Prescott's company, from Concord (of Bull Run fame), contributed much to the interest and pleasure of the day.
Since the return of the Davis Guards, another company of the same name, and including many of the members of the old company, has been formed and mustered into service for three years. This company rendezvoused, first at Camp Cameron, North Cambridge, and afterwards at Camp Chisr, at Lowell, which they left about the nineteenth of November, to take passage for the South, in the steamer Constitution, and form a part of Gen. Butler's Brigade.

Company F (Warren Light Guard), Lawrence. - 6th Reg. Organized 1855. Named in honor of Gen. Joseph Warren, of Revolutionary fame. The breaking out of the rebellion found the military of Lawrence willing and anxious to do their part in the conflict. Late in the afternoon of April 15, 1861, Capt. Chadbourne, of Company F, and Capt. Pickering, of Company I, received orders to report themselves, with their companies, in Boston, at the earliest moment. They at once, with their clerks, commenced notifying their members, and the next morning their companies were ready to leave Lawrence, to join the Lowell companies, who composed a part of the regiment, to which they were attached. After bidding adieu to their friends and the thousands of citi
zens who had thronged the streets and gathered about the depot, at 8 o'clock, A. M., all being in readiness, the train started amid the cheers and huzzas from the gathered multitude. At their arrival in Lowell, a great crowd was in attendance to welcome them. At 11 o'clock, A. M., they left, with the regiment, for Boston, where they were again met by thousands, who gave them a hearty reception. They at once proceeded to Faneuil Hall, made a short stay, then left for Boylston Hall, stayed there over night, next morning visited the State House for equipments, then left the city on the evening of the 17th of April, at 8 o'clock, for New York. On their return from the seat of war, they again visited Lowell, where the regiment was disbanded. On their arrival back to Lawrence, thousands again turned out to welcome them; a salute was fired; a procession was formed, composed of the Home Guards, Zouaves, Firemen, Mayor, Aldermen, and City Officers, and a cavalcade of citizens. Two beautiful floral cars, drawn by horses, and decorated with flage, evergreens, &c., formed a very attractive feature in the procession, -one containing thirty-four young ladies, dressed in red, white, and blue, representing the thirty-four States, the other containing thirteen young ladies, dressed in white, with black caps, white plumes, and black velvet sashes. Among these ladies rode Mrs. Needham, dressed in black, and Mr. Needham's two sisters. The whole affair was truly magnificent, and one never before seen in Lawrence. When the procession came to the residence of Corporal Needham, Col. Watson gave the orders to halt. The military then reversed arms, and the band played the dead march in respect to their brave comrade, who fell at the riot in Baltimore. The procession then continued its line of march to the common, where triumphal arches, beautifully decorated with appropriate mottoes, were erected at the entrance. Arriving at the common, Daniel Saunders, Jr., Esq., Ex-Mayor and Chief Marshal of the day, made a very claborate introductory speech. Mayor Barker then welcomed them home again, to which Lieut.-Col. Watson replied. The companies were then escorted to their armories, which had been beautifully decorated by the citizens of Lawrence. Here a sumptuous collation awaited them, provided by the city and the citizens of Lawrence. Great credit is due to the city of Lawrence for the liberal manner in which they have provided for the volunteers, - having spent $5,000 for the benefit of the three months' men, $25,000 additional for other regiments, less $5,000 for equipments; has now about 700 men in service; paid all expenses on reception of three months'men, - music, floral cars, &c. Capt. Chadbourne, of the Warren Light Guard, after being in Washington nineteen days, applied for his discharge, on account of sickness, and came home. Lieut. Melvin Beal was promoted to captain, receiving his commission the 8th day of May. A large part of the menibers of these two companies have re-enlisted in other regiments.

Company G (Worcester Light Infantry,) Worcester.- 6th Rog. Organized in 1803 by Hon. Levi Lincoln and a few associates. It was in the war of 1812 and ’14. under the command of Captain John W. Lincoln, brother of its founder. Formerly Company B. 3d Battalion of Rifles. M. V.M., it was known in the three months'service as Compauy 6, 6th Regiment. At 11 o'clock, P.M., April 16, 1861, the company received orders to report in Boston at noon the following day, to start for Washington. At the time of receiving orders, a severe storm was raging; and though its members were scattered in four towns, yet at 7 o'clock the next morning, ninety-seven men, including officers, had answered the summons, and were ready for duty. At 9 1-2 o'clock took up the line of march for the cars, escorted by other military organizations of the city, and attended by thousands of their friends, who had come out to bid them God-speed and a hasty God bless you! and to witness the departure of that old company, which had so promptly responded to the call, and which, for the second time in its history, was marching to the defence of an imperilled land. Reported at the State House, and were attached to the 6th Regiment, and left with them in the evening of the same day.
August 3. Returned to Worcester, and received a public reception the following day, together with a banquet, given by their fellow-citizens.

Company L (Stoneham Light Infantry), Stoneham. - 6th Reg. Organized 1851. This company, in April, 1861, belonged to the 7th Regiment as Company C. 'fo complete the required number of troops for the 6th Regiment, it was detached, and annexed to the 6th, letter L. Captain Dike received orders at 2 o'clock on the morning of April 17 to appear in Boston that morning with his company at 11 o'clock. At an early hour the bells in Stoneham were rung, and the order was announced to the inhabitants, who united their efforts with the company, and in a few hours they left the town, a large
number of citizens of both sexes having assembled to witness their departure and exchange kind assurance. Prompt to the hour, he reported his company at the State House, and left with the regiment in the forenoon. The citizens of Stoneham made up a purse of $500, and presented it to Captain Dike, just before he left home, for the benefit of the company. This amount was raised in about one hour. Two days afterwards, on the 19th, he was shot down in Baltimore while gallantly leading his company through the mob, receiving a wound in the leg, which will render him a cripple for life. In the regiment they, like the other companies, acted well their part, and for their prompt response in April, as well as subsequent 'acts, their townsmen bailed their return home, not only with affectionate hearts, but a just pride. As they neared their homes, the people came out in crowds, with music and banners, to receive them, in carriages, on horseback, and on foot. They escorted them to the town, then feasted and addressed them, making it a truly festive occasion.

Eighth Regiment of Infantry.
(Three Months' Volunteers.)
We are indebted to Capt. George T. Newhall, of Company D, Lynn, for the following well written and highly interesting sketch of the movements and gallant deeds of the Eighth Regiment, during its three and a half months' campaign. It can be relied on as entirely correct, having been prepared with great care, the author having himself participated in most of the events herein narrated, and all of his facts having been substantiated by the most diligent and thorough inquiry. This record does especial honor to old Essex, and can be perused with patriotic pride, not only by the members of the Eighth, but by every son of Massachusetts.
The orders for the mustering of this regiment were issued on Monday, the 15th of April, 1861. The companies composing it received notice late in the afternoon of that day, causing intense excitement, not only in military circles, but among all classes. Great activity immediately prevailed, on the part of the soldiers and their friends, to promptly and efficiently answer the sudden requisition of the President. Flags were Aung to the breeze, and the startling news was the theme of discussion at every street corner, and in every house. The men were hurriedly warned, and in the evening the several armories were crowded with citizens as well as soldiers, some of the former rolunteering, while the men of property and business men contributed material aid in the most liberal and patriotic manner.
The morning of the 16th opened with a violent storm of sleet and snow. The companies rallied with the greatest promptness. Those from Marblehead were among the first to reach Boston, and immediately marched to Faneuil Hall. As the various companies arrived in the city they were surrounded by enthusiastic crowds, who followed them with cheers to the old “Cradle of Liberty." 'Notwithstanding the severe storm, the streets were crowded with people, who, with one accord, evinced their appreciation of the patriotic alacrity manifested by the troops. The soldiers expected to leave
