battle Stuart was made brigadier-general, and Captain William E. Jones was made colonel, and assumed command of the regiment. The 6th was then forming, and lacked two companies of having a quota, while the 1st had too many. In August, 1861, General Stuart permitted the Clarke and Rockingham companies to decide by vote whether to go to the 6th or remain in the 1st. They elected to go into the 6th, which was officered by Colonel Charles W. Field, Lieutenant-Colonel Julian Harrison, Major J. Grattan Cabell, and John Allen, Adjutant. Shortly afterwards Colonel Field was made brigadier, and assigned to the command of an infantry brigade. Major Thomas Stanhope Flournoy was then made colonel, and, after the Valley Campaign, resigned. Cabell E. Flournoy, who had been made major, became lieutenant-colonel, and John Shack Green, major. In 1863 Julian Harrison was made colonel, but being badly wounded the day he took command, at Brandy Station, never came back again to the regiment. Ca

or an infantry camp of instruction as well as for cavalry. This was in April, 1861. The Hanover Troop and the Henrico Troop were, perhaps, the first regular commands to enter the grounds. The late General W. C. Wickham was captain of the Hanover Cavalry, and Colonel J. Lucius Davis', of Henrico, was the captain of the cavalry from that county. About the same date the Chesterfield Cavalry, Captain William B. Ball; the Powhatan, Captain Phil. St. George Cocke, and the Richmond, Captain J. Grattan Cabell, and others were early at the rendezvous. Among the first infantry commands were the First (Richmond) Regiment, Colonel P. T. Moore, and then followed company after company, and many regiments were soon organized. The Corps of cadets. The corps of cadets of the Virginia Military Institute were soon in place under command of Colonel William Gilham, commandant of the corps and professor of tactics.

Governor's Mounted Guard. --This admirably disciplined and finely appointed company paraded yesterday, for inspection, under the leadership of their accomplished and popular captain. J. Grattan Cabell, Esq. Some fifty odd were in rank. The men elicited many favorable comments because of their soldierly appearance. The war feeling must be pretty thoroughly aroused, as we never saw evidence of more excitement than was produced by the simple blowing of the call for the above parade at the different street corners.
Capt. Cabell's Card. --It will be seen by a notice in another column that Capt. J. Grattan Cabell contradicts the rumor that had somehow or other gained currency, that the death of young Henry. St. George Tucker, a member of the Governor's Mounted Guard, was caused by "unnecessary exposure" while on duty. Even if Capt. Cabell did not contradict the rumor on his own authority, it is sufficiently refuted by the circumstances connected with the affair narrated by him. We deem it hardly posr gained currency, that the death of young Henry. St. George Tucker, a member of the Governor's Mounted Guard, was caused by "unnecessary exposure" while on duty. Even if Capt. Cabell did not contradict the rumor on his own authority, it is sufficiently refuted by the circumstances connected with the affair narrated by him. We deem it hardly possible that the parties who started the rumor referred to could have designed to reflect, save by implication, on the commanding officer of the Guard.
be emptied of the sick to accommodate the wounded, and they were crowded here to the amount of 1,200 or 1,300--sick and wounded — in a few days, without any preparation having been made for their accommodation. There were but two surgeons — Drs. Cabell and Davis — who only received their appointments a few days before. They did all that men could do to provide for the unexpected arrival, working for days and nights without rest, assisted by Mr. George Dewden, of Richmond as druggist Dr. Peter more to reach their destination, 100 or 150 miles off. Whether the fail is at the door of the Medical Department, or Quartermaster's, or railroads, deponent knoweth not. In conclusion, Messrs. Editors, too much praise cannot be given to the citizens of Charlottesville and vicinity, or to surgeons Cabell and Davis, for their untiring efforts to assist those who suffered in their country's cause, or fought and blew under the victorious Southern flag, on the 21st day of July, 1861.

Deserter. --Parker C. Wescoat, a member of the Governor's Guard, of this city, who has been absent from duty for some time past without leave, was apprehended and carried before the Mayor on Saturday as a deserter. The proof of the fact being satisfactory, the Mayor ordered the levanting trooper to be kept in jail to await the call of his commanding officer, J. Grattan Cabell, which event was expected to occur on yesterday (Sunday.)
