Their was a little fighting all along the line but no damage was made. This was also kept up all day. A few Americans were killed and many insurgents were killed at St. Peter Macardy. This was almost captured by the Californians but they hadn't force enough to hold and therefore retreated. The Utah Battery and Pennsylvania Regiment were engaged all afternoon. One Utah lieutenant was wounded in the leg. For the first time the insurgents used their artillery since the 15th of February but none of them reached our trenches. The Utah Battery soon silenced them at Taps. Everything is quiet on the line. The sick and wounded are doing fine at the hospital.
