NOTE.-The difference in aggregate and totals between this and the preceding return is accounted for thus: First, by killed, wounded, and missing in battle, and the arrival of Carroll's brigade and a portion of the cavalry, heretofore detached.

Respectfully submitted and forwarded.

General, Commanding.
