The North Carolina Cavalry, Com'd by the Marquis of Bretigney, lost one man killed and one wounded. I have received no return of one of the North Carolina Regiments; those missing are supposed to have gone home. According to the reports of the Genl. and Field Officers very few were killed or taken, most of them having thrown away their arms and abandoned the field early in the action.
