The company of which this paper exhibits the statistick, was held in readiness for action at any moment during the prolonged engagement at and around Fredericksburg-beginning on the eleventh and ending on the fifteenth Decr 1862. The company was not called upon to engage the enemy but was to some extent annoyed by the shells. On the nigh of the 14th Dcr this company occupied a portion of the advance picket line-in the sububs of Fred. and during the night captured one prisoner-who had straggled into our lines. During the season in question the weather was extremely cold and the exposure of the men very great, they however withstood the inconveniences without a murmer thus manifesting a praiseworthy fortitude in making sacrifices for the good of their country.
