was ordered to prevent the cutting of our important lines southward. In accordance with instructions from the General commanding Army of Northern Virginia, I made a personal examination of the Yankee shipping and encampment, on the twenty-eighth instant, and determined to attack it from Coggins's Point and Meycock's, on the south side. This expedition was intrusted to Brigadier-General French, and was a complete success. Forty-three pieces, under command of General Pendleton and Colonel J. T. Brown, were placed in position on the night of the thirty-first, on the banks of the river, within easy range of the objects to be reached. Much damage was done to the Yankee shipping, some destruction of life caused in the camp, and the wildest terror and consternation produced. The report of General French is herewith submitted. This officer had charge of the expedition, agreeably to the wishes of General Lee. Doubtless the night attack had much to do with the evacuation of Westover,

There are still a hundred earnest inquirers for the way of life. Rev. Dr. Wm. J. Hoge wrote the Central Presbyterian, so graceful and vivid a description of his visit to the camps about Fredericksburg, that I give it in full, although I have already made a brief quotation from it, as I am unwilling to mar its beauty: Religion in the army. Dear Doctor Brown: As I have no great fondness for letterwriting, I am afraid that when you asked me privately to send you a sketch of my visit to camp I meant to give you the slip. But now that I am publicly challenged in leaded type and editorial columns, what can I do? Yet what are the terms of the challenge? A brief and spirited communication. My dear sir, I compromise. I consent to be brief, but to be spirited is more than I dare engage. By special invitation from an officer in the Secon

Thompson Brown, of the First Virginia Artillery, who fell at the battle of the Wilderness, was thus spoken of at the close of a memorial sketch by Hon. B. Johnson Barboers the declaration, that in the long and mournful catalogue of the victims of the late war, Virginia finds the name of no truer, braver, or better son than John Thompson Brown. A few days later, at Spottsylvania Court House, fell the accomplished Major David Watson, of the same artillery regiment with Colonel Brown, and of whoColonel Brown, and of whom it was said: Major Watson was borne from the field and carried to a neighboring house, where he received all the aid that kindness and sympathy could give.

Soon after my becoming its chaplain, it was reduced in size to four companies, and Colos of one hundred religious papers were received a week; perhaps one hundred and fifty. Colonel J. T. Brown (our colonel until January, 1864,) was a sincerely pious member of the Episcopal Church; of what was known as First Regiment, Virginia Artillery, and afterwards in the command of Colonel J. T. Brown, and finally, after his death, in Hardaway's Battalion of Artillery. The first winter ng of 1862 was a new era in our history. We left General Pendleton, and were attached to Colonel J. T. Brown's Artillery, where I suppose there might have been about fifty per cent. of religious men the impossibility of giving you much in the way of statistics.

rns men do not gather figs, nor of a bramble bush gather they grapes. Here is Robert Lee. Show us his fellow. Our great leader was not only a great soldier, but more—a selfless man and stainless gentleman. On the 21st April, 1861, the Richmond Howitzers were mustered into the service of the State, in obedience to an ordinance of the Convention adopted 17th April. The commissioned officers were: Captain, George W. Randolph; First Lieutenant, John C. Shields; Second Lieutenant, John Thompson Brown; Third Lieutenant, Thomas P. Mayo. History Richmond Howitzer Battalion, Pamphlet No. 4, page 33; extracts from an old Order Book, First company. The command increased so rapidly in numbers that it was soon sufficient to form three batteries, which served throughout the war. Like their distinguished commander-so soon Brigadier-General, and then Secretary of War-each company had a brilliant record, which ended only at Appomattox.

As I came out of the woods with fear and trembling, in front of me was your orderly. I also was an orderly. When he saw my rank he ha! ha-ed! out a good natured laugh and said, there comes the orderly. I tell you captain that made me feel good.
