Ninth Regiment of Infantry.
Faugh a Ballagh.” On the requisition of the United States government for troops, immediately after we fall of Fort Sumter, the Irish citizens were among the foremost to respond to the call. They were largely represented in every “three months'" regiment; but the Ninth was the first composed entirely of the sons of Erin; and the well-earned repu

tation which they have achi: ved since their arrival at the seat of war, shows that in future they are to constitute a powerful arm of our militars,
It was first known as the Thirteenth ; but, the system of numbering being changed, it was altered to the Ninth. About $6000 was subscribed by the friends of the regiment for its wants while recruiting. It was first organized at Camp Wightman, on Long Island, in Boston Harbor, where it was quartered about seven weeks. On Monday, June 24, the regiment came up from its encampment for a visit to the city before starting to the seat of war. They were received at the wharf by an escort of nearly 810 Irishmen, and proceeded immediately to the State House, where the regiment was drawn up in line. The governor, attended by his staff, appeared, and in a brief speech presented to Colonel Cass the Ensign of the Commonwealth. He said they would bear in their ranks the stars and stripes of the glorious American banner; but he would have them recognized, when abroad, as from Massachusetts. He had the most perfect coufidence in the regiment, and felt fully assured that the flag would never be disgraced by the countrymen of Daniel O'Connel.
Colonel Čass responded in a fitting reply. The regiment then proceeded to the Commou, where a bountiful collation had been provided by the city. The line was again formed at three o'clock, and the regiment was reviewed by the mayor and several other city officials, after which it returned to Camp Wightman.
A stand of colors, costing $150, was also presented by the Irish citizens, consisting of a beautiful silk American flag and an Irish flag made of green silk. On one side of the latter is the scroll; on top, in golden letters :
“THY SONS BY ADOPTION, Thy firm supporters and defenders, from duty, affection, and choice." Beneath, also in golden letters :
.“ Presented to Colonel Thomas Cass, 9th Regiment Mass. Irish Volunteers." In the centre is the American coat of arms - eagle, shield, etc.; on the reverse side, the Irish Harp, whose strings, with ground color, denote the Red, White, and Blue, surmounted by the thirty-four stars, and surrounded by a beautiful wreath of shamrock; underneath are two wolf dogs, emblematic of Ireland, with the motto:
“ Gentle when stroked,
But fierce when provoked.” On the top, the motto in gold letters:
“As aliens and strangers thou didst us befriend,
As sons and true patriots, we do thee defend." And, underneath all, the declarative motto:
"The Union must be On the 25th of June it was ordered on to Washington. Before starting, every cumpany had been recruited to its maximum standard. It was transported in the Ben Deford, and arrived on the 29th of June, after a passage of four days. It remained here in quarters until after the battle of Bulí Run, when it was ordered to Arlington Heights, on the Virginia side of the Potomac.
While there, the regiment threw up a fortification, taking nearly two months for its erection, the whole work being carried through by this regiment alone. When first commenced, an advance was expected from the rebels, and the men worked with great ardor. It received the name of Fort Cass.
The regiment has been reviewed several times by General McClellan, and was in the grand review of 70,000 troops which took place near Washington. Up to the middle of December, not one man had died of sickness, and the general health of the regi. ment had been remarkable. Sixteen men had been wounded while on picket duty, but not one had been killed.
December 25 being Christmas, their camp was tastefully and profusely ornamented with evergreens, and the day commemorated in an appropriate manner.
