By R.Milton Cary, Capt. F Company 1st Regiment Virginia Volunteers."--"The bayonet is the weapon of the brave. "This neat and comprehensive little manual ought to be in the hands of all the volunteers of the South. The bayonet has become the great weapon of modern warfare. This book, which the compiler informs us is a translation from the French, the plates being facsimiles of those obtained from Paris, conveys the latest and most approved instruction for bayonet exercise, as used in France, the most military nation of the world.

Col. Milton Cary writes us that so much of a late article in this paper relative to Capt. Walker and the Purcell Battery as states that much labor devolved upon that company, "while other companies equally interested in the success of the work, were entirely exempted," is unfounded.

Walker's men, and did assist them nobly. It is proper to say that Capt. Walker has had no lot nor part in anything that has been published about him in this paper.

Fredericksburg, Va., Dec. 18, 1861 The 30th Virginia Regiment Col.

There is nothing important from the Potomac, except the firing into passing vessels, which almost daily occurs at Evansport and other points. In the town, especially among the children, a very virulent type of scarlet fever<
