th in part. His own brigade was promptly sent to him, and one of the brigades of Loring's troops (General Loring had succeeded General Lee) reached him early in December. Subsequently two more brigades under General Loring himself were added, but all these troops only increased the small force of 3,000 State militia which he hadn, page 257. The greater part of General Loring's force did not arrive at Winchester until Christmas, thus preventing any important movements during November and December. But meantime Jackson was not idle. He spent the time in organizing, drilling and equipping the militia and the scattered cavalry commands, which he consolidto go into the river and cut away the cribs. This was done in the cold water under an annoying fire from the enemy on the Maryland bank. By the last week in December all the troops that the War Department thought it judicious to spare him had arrived, and though the season was far advanced, he determined at once to assume the

nd the slowness with which I was compelled to move would give them ample time to make all preparations. I furthermore came to this conclusion from the fact that it coincided with my instructions — in the propriety of which my own judgment fully concurred. Colonels.Freeman, Dobbins and McCroy were ordered to return, with such of their men as still remained with their colors, to the places where they had raised their commands, to collect the absentees, and bring them within our lines during December, if possible; and on the 4th of November I marched with the balance of my command through the Indian territory in the direction of Boggy depot. On the 13th I reached Perryville — a distance of one hundred and nineteen miles--when I met three wagons with supplies and encamped, remaining one day to rest and recruit my men. I had marched carefully and slowly, stopping to graze my stock whenever an opportunity offered. On the 14th, General Shelby, at his request, was left behind on the Canadi

Editorial Paragraphs. This volume of our Papers will conclude with the December number, as we have determined to adopt the suggestion of many of our readers that we hereafter put twelve numbers into each volume, instead of six, as heretofore. This will lessen to our subscribers the cost of binding the numbers for the year, and will at the same time give a book of more convenient size. Our relations with the war Records office at Washington continue to be in the highest degree satisfactory. General Marcus J. Wright and Mr. A. P. Tasker have again visited our office — this time spending two weeks in a careful examination of our records; and two accomplished copyists have been at work for a month making for the War Department copies of important official documents which it needs to complete its files. These gentlemen were hard at work during the whole time they were with us, and were more than ever impressed with the extent and value of our collection. On the other ha

if he had perverted the functions of his position, but to his honor be it said, that he neither enriched himself or friends to the extent of a farthing. So governing the administration of his office that all his energies were devoted solely to the service of his people, content with the humble fare and the simplest form of a soldier's life. His headquarters during the fall and winter of 1864-5 were at Wytheville, as more central than Dublin and near the scene of possible operations. In December, near its middle, General Stoneman advanced from East Tennessee with a heavy cavalry force, while Burbridge came from Kentucky, the two effecting a junction and capturing Abingdon before meeting with any serious resistance. They also subsequently captured Saltville and Wytheville; but such was the vigor of General Breckinridge's movements and the skill of his dispositions, that with his meagre force he repulsed them at Marion after an engagement lasting all day, and compelled their return

ently an equally celebrated Confederate Colonel, D. C. Kelly, saw him then for the first time under fire, and thus vividly describes the wonderful change that always took place in his appearance in a fight: His face flushed till it bore a striking resemblance to a painted Indian warrior's, and his eyes, usually so mild in their expression, blazed with the intense glare of a panther's about to spring on his prey. In fact, he looks as little like the Forrest of our mess table as the storm of December resembles the quiet of June. Those who saw him when his brother Jeffrey fell, who was born after the death of his father, and who was educated and almost idolized by his brother, say that the blaze of his face and the glare of his eyes were fearful to behold, and that he rushed like a madman on the foe, dealing out death with pistol and sword to all around him — like Hector fighting over the body of Patroclus: Yet, fearless in his strength, now rushing on He dashed amid the fray; now

stly desired at this office; for, while we have already an invaluable collection, we are as anxious as ever to make it as full and complete as possible. And, where our friends have valuable documents which they are not willing to part with, but which they are willing to have copied, we beg that they will send them at once to our office, where they can be copied both for our own use and that of the War Department in Washington. Our annual report for the year ending 1st of November, 1879, will appear in our next (December) number, together with a report of our annual meeting. The army of Northern Virginia Memorial volume has been delayed longer than was anticipated. But it is now fast approaching completion, and subscribers will be compensated for the delay by its containing, in addition to the matter promised, General Fitz. Lee's address on Chancellorsville, to be delivered at the reunion on October 29th. In order to secure the book, send on your subscriptions at once.

hat our friends will exert themselves to induce others to subscribe to the bound volume, and that they will send on their own orders at once. Your subscription expires with this number, and we beg that you will renew at once (we mean, of course, those who have only paid to the close of this year, and that embraces much the largest part of our list). We ask you to renew at once, because we must put our printers to work on our January number, in order that it may be out by the middle of December, and it will be necessary for us to know how many of our subscribers will continue, so that we may regulate the number of copies to be printed. In order to be able to supply subscribers with our back numbers, we have been printing a much larger number of copies each month than our subscription list justified. But this has been a source of serious embarrassment, and we must discontinue it. We cannot promise a full set of the Papers for next year to those who do not begin with the first
