ates army. Norfolk was evacuated, and Major Smith served on General Mahone's staff near Richmond until after the battle of Seven Pines, in which he was engaged.. He was then appointed Major of Artillery in the Confederate States of America and given command of a battalion at Drewry's Bluff at the time of the battle at that place. He continued there until Grant's demonstration against Richmond on the Southside, in the early campaign of 1864. Major Smith served with the command of General R. H. Anderson at the time of the battle of Chester and the second attack on Drewry's Bluff. Though stationed at the fort, he was able to render valuable voluntary service to General Anderson outside the fort, in consideration of which the General recommended him for promotion. He was ordered in June to erect the battery at Howlett's House, our lowest point of defence on James river, and this he accomplished in an incredibly short time while under constant fire from the gunboats and batteries a

On the nights of the 7th-8th of October I commanded one of the detachments which made a descent upon the camp of Billy Wilson's Zouaves, under the guns of Fort Pickens, on Santa Rosa Island. The expedition consisted of about a thousand men divided into three detachments, respectively under Col. J. R. Jackson, 5th Georgia regiment; Col. James R. Chalners, 9th Mississippi regiment, and myself. Chalmers had the right, Jackson the centre, and I the left; the whole under command of Brigadier-General R. H. Anderson, of South Carolina. My command consisted of 1oo men from the 1st Florida, 100 men from the 1st Louisiana, and about 150 from the 1st Alabama, and other commands. My loss in this fight was eleven killed, twenty-four wounded and twelve captured. (I speak from memory.) On the 10th of February, 1862, I was appointed a brigadiergen-eral in the provisional army of Confederate States, and in March was ordered to report to General Bragg, then at Jackson in West Tennessee.

The Confederate armies. The commands from the several Southern and border States. To the Editor of the Dispatch: In your editorial of the 22d on the subject of the Muster Rolls of Virginia Troops, you refer to a letter from Colonel Ainsworth to General Anderson, in which it was erroneously stated that Virginia had 16o batteries of artillery in the Confederate armies. Below I send you an extract from Regimental Losses in the Civil War, by Lieutenant-Colonel William F. Fox; a work which the author says, represents the patient and conscientious labor of years. Days, and often weeks, have been spent on the figures of each regiment, and no statistics are given that are not warrented by the official records. As far as I am able to judge, this volume, by comparison with others of like character, is the most accurate and complete, and by far the most impartial work of the kind published since the war by the northern press. Colonel Fox gives the following: Strength of the
