fore them, continuing to advance until they found shelter from the enemy's fire in a ravine, about midway from the position formerly held, and the enemy's batteries. Soon after passing over the crest of the first hill, Lieutenant-Colonel Evans was disabled by a wound, and I was knocked down and burnt by a shell exploding near me, rendering me incapable of going forward with my men. In passing over the hill, my regiment suffered severely. Among those killed, I cannot fail to mention Captain Charles Bruce, whose conduct was worthy of all praise. The regiment remained exposed to a heavy fire during the whole battle, and were forward in the charge each time an effort was made to take the enemy's batteries. I cannot close this report without calling your attention to the gallant conduct of Captain W. W. T. Coghill, Richard Logan, Jr., and P. Poindexter, who acted during the whole day with great coolness and bravery. We lost twelve killed and fifty-seven wounded. Very respectfully,

State, it would be an act of simple justice to permit a statement to be made through your columns of what Charlotte county has done With a militia strength of 650 men, she has sent into the service of the State a company of Cavalry and two companies of Infantry; two other companies of Infantry are equipped and ready to march in a day or two Last week two other companies of Infantry were organized, and we understand that recruiting is now going on for another company, to be commanded by Mr. Charles Bruce, our Senator elect, and equipped at his own expense, making seven companies already organized and the eighth in process of organization, with a fair prospect of success.

With such a leader and such a cause, there can be no failure in getting a few more volunteers. This makes the 8th company from old Charlotte. Great uneasiness is felt here about the Keysville Guards, who were in the Twenty-third Regiment, stationed at Laurel Hill, as nothing has been hear

Captain Charles Bruce, whose company we mentioned the other day, is not the son of James C. Bruce, Esq., as we then supposed, but the Senator from the Charlotte district. Captain Bruce raised this company by his own exertions, and equipped it in the most complete style, and also provisioned it in camp in Charlotte, for weeks, at his own expense. We would not willingly strip a laurel from the brow of so patriotic a gentleman.
