This is the regiment which refused to go forward as infantry when the rebels were advancing and near this place. Three hundred and thirty-eight prisoners captured at Greencastle. The Fifth go to the rear this morning as guard. Lieutenant Cron and 93 men, of the One hundred and tenth Ohio, of Milroy's command, as guard, will be instructed to report to General Schenck.

His Excellency ABRAHAM LINCOLN,

President of the United States:

Copy of General Ingalls' dispatch to General Haupt, at Gettysburg, of this morning, received and communicated to General Couch at Shippensburg. Another regiment from Camp Curtin goes forward to-day. Every effort will be made to get the troops in the field. General Smith was yesterday in Waynesborough, Franklin County, near the Maryland line. He and General Couch were in communication, and both, I judge, with General Haupt, at Gettysburg.
