The Twenty-ninth has again been in a hard fight, where they have doubtless suffered much more than they did at Winchester. We have however nothing but the most vague rumors respecting them. It is said that Capt. Luce of Kingsville was killed; but that is only rumor. The Captain of the Painesville company is reported wounded, badly. Col. Buckley is reported missing by the last dispatches. In the battle of Point Republic, which was undoubtedly a terrible one, there were four regiments–the 7th Indiana, 5th, 7th and 29th Ohio. The lost is 1,000 killed, wounded and missing, of whom 156 were killed, and 300 wounded. This is a fearful loss for four regiments, who could not have numbered over 2,000 men. Of course all kinds of rumors will be circulated, which can only be corrected by the official reports, for which we wait with anxiety.
We learn since the above that the 29th has loss 17 killed, and 35 wounded and 170 missing. Among the killed whose names we learn, are Capt. Luce and Wm. Fitzgerald of Ashtabula. Our edition after the mail will give further particulars.
