This has been a quiet night until 5 o’clock when the Oregonians had a hot engagement which lasted until noon. In the afternoon, the sharpshooters kept themselves busy but we did not take any notice of them. The papers are announcing the number of killed and wounded, but it is nearly a hundred killed and about 400 wounded. The sick and wounded are doing fine. All is quiet at Taps. I am sleeping in the trenched tonight.
