y that every day is adding to the strength and efficiency of the army, and that by the close of another week I sincerely believe that its morale will be fully up to if not in advance of its spirit at any time during the past twelve months. The country can rely upon the army of Northern Virginia, and Robert E. Lee, its chosen general. During the retreat from Gettysburgh, Ewell lost nearly all his forges, and Hill some five or six. This was when the enemy attacked the trains. Lieutenant-Colonel Christie, a gallant officer, died here, I am informed, last night. X. New-York world account. The preliminary campaign. headquarters army of the Potomac, near Gettysburgh, Saturday evening, July 4. The campaign which has practically terminated in the rout whose last sullen echoes are now dying away among the hills beyond Gettysburgh, was the most significant and remarkable of the war. It has solved more riddles; it has taught more lessons; it has been a brighter advantage t
larger force, and this regiment, having no supports, retired, under orders from Major Toon, to the cover of the wood out of which it had charged. Colonel Wade, Twelfth North Carolina, conducted his regiment with coolness and discretion. Colonel Christie, Twenty-third North Carolina, had the misfortune to be wounded, in the successful charge at Cold Harbor, while leading his regiment and bearing himself handsomely, when the command of this regiment again fell upon Lieutenant I. J. Young, who had been in command during the absence of Colonel Christie from the effect of his injuries at the Seven Pines. I desire to notice the conduct of Lieutenant Young as worthy of special commendation. He was severely wounded at Malvern Hill, while leading the regiment, and compelled to retire. In the absence of three regimental commanders, who led the Thirteenth, Twentieth, and Twenty-third North Carolina regiments, in the recent engagements, the regimental reports of those commands refrain from
them. We met, however, with a warm reception, and the little command was broken and dispersed. Major Hobson and Lieutenant Gaff, of Fifth Alabama, acquitted themselves handsomely in this charge. Colonel Iverson, Twentieth North Carolina, Colonel Christie, Twenty-third North Carolina, Captain Garrett, Fifth North Carolina, Adjutant Taylor and Lieutenant Pierce, of the same regiment, had gathered up about two hundred men, and I sent them to the right to attack the Yankees in flank. They droveed in both battles in Maryland, says that all did their duty in his regiment, and he cannot discriminate. The following officers and men, of Garland's brigade, are specially commended for their good conduct: Colonels D. R. McRae, Iverson, and Christie ; Lieutenant-Colonels Johnston and Ruffin. The latter was wounded three times at South Mountain, and exhibited the highest qualities of the officer and soldier. Captains Garret, Robinson, Brookfield, Adjutant J. M. Taylor, and Lieutenant Peirc
pair of steel blades attached to the end of a holder and having even, sharp, elliptical ends, which may be regulated as to relative distance, according to the width of the line required. The pellicle of ink is contained between the blades. A second form of ruling-pen b was introduced from France perhaps forty years since. The instrument has a pair of jaws which shut perfectly together, inclosing an ink reservoir. At the tip of the pen is a small aperture, out of which the ink flows. Christie's rulingpen c has a triangular arrangement of converging points, which hold a drop of ink; the small triangular hole between the needle-points forms the ink-duct. Such pens are commonly made of glass of late years, and are hawked about the streets. The ruling-pen for machines, by which letter and accountbook paper are ruled, is made by doubling a piece of thin sheetbrass, forming a small trough for the ink. The end of the trough is cut obliquely, so that it rests on the paper, — the w

Such are represented on ancient vases, and frequently referred to by contemporary writers: Aristophanes, Ovid, Anacreon, Martial, Juvenal, etc. The Hamilton vases show several instances of Greek and Etruscan umbrellas. Xerxes and Cleopatra are represented as sitting under canopies or umbrellas, watching the fight or the play. The Greek ladies wore straw hats and bonnets (Pollux, Theocr. ). The Roman men wore broadbrimmed felt hats, petasus (wide-awakes). Christie describes an Etruscan vase in which Bacchus presents a dove to a seated female, while an umbrella is held above their heads by another female Anglo-Saxon umbrella Fig. 6857 is from the Harleian Manuscript, No. 603, and represents a servant holding an umbrella over his master.

ederal advance stopped. McClellan, meantime, had hurried Franklin's Sixth corps to the support of Sumner, but the latter, after the terrible disaster to Sedgwick, and the great loss to French and Richardson, was unwilling to risk another corps, because, as he said, a fresh body of troops was necessary to protect them from Jackson's attack. D. H. Hill, in the meantime, had rallied a few hundred men and led them against Richardson. They were dispersed and driven back. Colonels Iverson and Christie had likewise gathered about two hundred men of three or four North Carolina regiments and with them attacked French's flank but were also driven back. John R. Cooke, with his North Carolina regiment, held his place with empty muskets, his ammunition exhausted, and waved his battle-flag in the face of the advancing lines. He stood fast with not a cartridge. This boldness appears to have halted the Federal advance on the centre. It was now past three o'clock. The battle was over on the l

n the Port Royal fight. She is still leaking and requiring the use of the pamps. Barr, the rascally traitor, who decamped from Fort Pulaski a week or two since, had reached the fleet at Port Royal. Captain S. saw him on the flag-ship, with a uniform folded under his arm, and with a letter in his hand, which he subsequently learned was an order for two thousand dollars, to be paid the scamp as a consideration for cutting loose a raft that was anchored opposite Fort Pulaski. Capt. S. also heard it whispered among the Yankees, on the authority of Barr, that there were other officers in Pulaski who were ready to revolt, should the opportunity occur. We place not a particle of faith in the statement. Parties, arrived at the fleet from the North, reported that the crew of the prize John W. Anderson were only detained a day in Philadelphia, and are now at liberty. Captain S. thinks that Capt. Christie and the crew of the Waring were also released on their arriyal in New York.
