– Published in the Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, April 12, 1862, p. 3.  Editors Note: the bracketed text was cut off when the newspaper was microfilmed.  The same article appeared in Vanity Fair, April 5, 1862 and I have used that article to reconstruct the missing text in this article.
