Tenth Regiment of Infantry.

This regiment is made up almost exclusively of men living in the five western counties. Its colonel is a son of the late Ex-Governor Briggs. He has been active in our volunteer militia, and has held sereral commissions. When the rebellion broke out, Colonel Briggs commanded a company of infantry at Pittsfield, and was among the first to offer the services of himself and command. He was ordered, with his company, to Washington, and was attached to the Eighth, which did such gallant service. Before the expiration of his three months' term, he was appointed to the command of the regiment formed in the western counties for three years' service. The Tenth first went into camp at Springfield, and afterwards at Medford.

In addition to the above, the following statement is given by a person connected with the regiment:

"On Thursday, July 25th, at 7 o'clock, P. M., the right wing of the regiment, on board the S. R. Spaulding, cast off from Central Wharf, Boston, bound for Washington.

* The left wing bad embarked some two hours before on board the Ben Deford, which steamed down the bay, and awaited the coming up of the Spaulding.

“As the S. R. Spaulding cast off, three rousing cheers were given, at the instance of Quartermaster-General Reed, for the success of the Tenth Regiment.

“ Lieut.-Col. Decker, having received his orders, went on board the Deford, and we started on our voyage,

“We had delightful weather all the time, with the exception of a slight fall of rain on Saturday evening, as we were entering the Chesapeake; but it soon cleared up, and we were repaid for our discomfort of the hour before by witnessing a most beautiful sunset. About 7 o'clock, we were hailed by the gunboat Quaker City, who, finding us all right, let us pass on, and in a little while we were in the broad waters of the Chesapeake.

“At 4 o'clock on Sunday morning we entered the Potomac, on our way up passing the rebel batteries at Mathias Point and Aquia Creek. At half past 10 o'clock, A. M., we were opposite Mount Vernon. The ship's bell was tolled, the band of the regiment played a dirge, and every head was uncovered. We passed several gunboats on the

sources.

way up the river, and in every case the rigging was manned, and three hearty cheers given for the regiment.

“We arrived off the arsenal at Washington about 12 o'clock, M., Sunday; but, owing to the crowded state of the wharf at the arsenal, only the Deford could land her part of the regiment, and the right wing landed at the navy yard, further up. The regiment were busy all the afternoon unloading the steamers, and at night the right wing were quartered in the lofts formerly occupied by the Seventy-first New York (three months).

“The next afternoon the regiment marched through the city to Kalorama Hill, which is north-east of the Capitol, and bivouacked for the night. The next morning changed our location to the old camping ground of the Thirty-fourth New York. The Seventh Massachusetts, Col. Couch, was encamped quite near us, on our right. We remained at Kalorama eight days, when we had orders to march to Brightwood, a distance of three miles, to be brigaded under the command of Brigadier-General Couch. We staid there two days, and then moved farther up the Seventh Street road to another camping ground. The change was necessary for the health of the men.

“ The regiment was presented with a set of colors, viz., State colors and the American flag, by the ladies of Springfield, before we left to go into camp at Medford, Mass.

The surgeon had, at various times, sent to him, for the benefit of the hospital, a total of $144 ; and many things in the shape of bedding, shirts, drawers, stockings, and clothing of all descriptions for the sick, have been given through private sources, from our friends in Western Massachusetts.

“In addition to these gifts, every company has been supplied with extra blankets, col. lected and sent on from the towns where the companies composing the regiment were raised. A large quantity of two-fingered mittens we have also received from the same

“We have been reviewed once as a regiment by General McClellan; once with the brigade, and twice in the division.

"Among the visitors in our camp have been Hon. Henry Wilson, Hon. H. L. Dawes, Hon. Charles Delano, Mayor Wightman, of Boston, Gov. Andrew, of Massachusetts, Hon. Frank P. Blair, Sen., the Postmaster General, Hon. Geo. F. Davis, of Massachu. setts, Hon. George Ashmun, of Springfield, George Dwight, Esq., of the same place, Brig.-Gen. Buel, Gen. Keyes, John J. Astor, Jr., of McClellan's staff, Hon. James Buffinton, Col. Lee, of the Massachusetts Twentieth, Col. Hinks, Nineteenth Massachusetts, Hon. B. F. Mills, of Williamstown, Mass., Hon. Joseph D. Colby, of Pittsfield, Mass., Col. Lee, and Lieut.-Col. Lyman, Twenty-seventh Massachusetts.

“The regiment was addressed, previous to our embarking at Boston, by Ex-Gov. Briggs, of Pittsfield.

• The old Tenth Regiment formed the nucleus of the present Tenth Regiment, and was under the command of the present Lieut.-Col. Jefford M. Decker. New compa. nies were recruited to fill up the regiment to the required standard, 1,045 men.

" The regiment rendezvoused at Springfield, Mass., in Hampden Park, June 14, 1861. The regiment was sworn into the service of United States, June 21, 1861, by Capt. Marshal, U. S. A.

• We are at present (Jan. 11, 1862) in Brig.-Gen. Keyes's division, Couch's brigade, which is en camped five miles out of Washington, on Seventh Street.

“Our brigade is composed of the Serenth and Tenth Massachusetts, Thirty-sixth New York, and Second Rhode Island. There are three brigades in our division, commanded respectively by Brig.-Gen'ls Couch, Graham, and Peck. The number of discharges have been 61; deaths, 16; desertions, 28. One hundred and seventeen have been enlisted, and the present strength is 1,010. We have three men in hospital. The health of the regiment is excellent.

“ Barracks have been built of logs, covered with boards, and everything is provided to make our quarters for the winter comfortable. Our brigade have built two forts, named respectively Slocum, and Massachusetts.

“There is a band attached to the regiment, consisting of twenty-six pieces, formerly from Adams, Massachusetts.

“Our barracks were built by the regiment, and have not cost the government one cent for lumber or materials used in the building.

“One row of barracks serve for a company, and bunks are partitioned off for each mess. Every tent has a little sheet-iron stove."
