Crenshaw as captain, James Ellett as first lieutenant, who gave up his life at the battle of Fredericksburg, December, 1862; Charles Hobson as second lieutenant, who was, we believe, lost at sea stubborn fight, gave way, and retreated across the Rappahannock. And here again were we to suffer another heavy loss—this time our gallant first lieutenant, James Ellett, that noble, chivalrous soldier, then in command of the battery. His death cast a gloom over the whole battalion. His bravery and self-possession, combined wmence firing! The loud huzzas are yet ringing in my head. I see again the troops all in battle array! I hear the well-known voice of the incomparable Lieutenant James Ellett, and the mellow and pleasant voice of Hollis, as the boys are now sending forth the messengers of death, and I hear our gallant Captain Thomas Ellett, as

Mantel had an insurance of $2,000 on his stock of goods, every vestige of which was consumed, as his family and himself were from home at the time, attending a ball. The building was owned by Thomas Jones, and was insured for $800. The tenement occupied by Mr. Chick belongs to Jas. Ellett, and was insured. Mr. Chick lost a portion of his furniture, and other portions were damaged by water. Mr. Gardner's residence, west of Chick's, was also on fire at one time, but the firemen extinguished the flames before the building was seriously damaged. It is but justice to the Fire Brigade to say, that they were not only promptly at the scene of conflagration, notwithstanding the long run they had to take, but that they labored hard, and were very successful in preventing the
