Peyton (at that time Major of the Nineteenth Virginia) was the senior field officer who escaped from the charge on Cemetery Hill and took command of the brigade after the battle. Colonel Henry Gantt was badly wounded in two places, and Lieutenant-Colonel Ellis was killed, as is reported in these papers. Major Peyton was afterwads promoted to the vacant lieutenant-colonelcy. He had lost an arm at second Manassas, but returned to duty as soon as he was sufficiently recovered to do so, and did nder, was planted, where we lay during a most terrific cannonading, which opened at 1 1/2 o'clock P. M. and was kept up without intermission for one hour. During the shelling we lost about twenty killed and wounded; among the killed was Lieutenant-Colonel Ellis, of the Nineteenth Virginia, whose bravery as a soldier, and his innocence, purity and integrity as a Christian, has not only elicited the admiration of his own command, but endeared him to all who knew him.

because they are wealthy men who have done service to the party. Spectator, May 23, 1896. The Spectator is, on the whole, the ablest of the great English weeklies, and the fairest; it is not at present opposing Lord Salisbury, nor is it saying this by way of censure. In what respect does all this differ from the methods of Tammany? There is nothing new about it; in the Greville Journals (July 2, 1826) the writer reports: A batch of peers has been made; everybody cries out against Charles Ellis's peerage (Lord Seaford); he has no property and is of no family.... However, it is thought very ridiculous. But it is evident that it was only the want of wealth that made it ridiculous; and yet this appointment was made by Canning. Perhaps Tweed and Croker managed it better in their own way, for they appointed men, not because they were already rich, but that they might become so. In either case, after the thing was done, who cared for its being thought ridiculous? Certainly not th

oad and followed a private road which led to a creek at the base of the hill on which the Hamby house stood. In the plan of attack, part of the company, under Colonel G. W. Flowers, was to approach from the north, while the other part, under Captain Ellis, was to approach from the south, and then surround the house. In the enthusiasm of the moment all seemed to forget the danger. Colonel Flowers' men had gotten within seventy-five yards, and Captain Ellis' men within twenty yards of the housCaptain Ellis' men within twenty yards of the house when its defenders poured a volley of minie-balls through the port-holes. (Hon. R. Z. Linneyz.) James K. Linney, and James Brown were killed. Linney had charged bravely across the field, and was killed on the east side of the house; Brown was charging up the hill on the west side when he was wounded. Some of the men were compelled to jump from their horses and throw themselves on the ground in order to escape being shot down. Their horses became frightened, and breaking loose from them, r

s taken by the convention. I add that Mr. Pettigrew and many others afterwards removed their slaves into the centre and west of the State, where they found employment at remunerative prices. Those so removing were known as refugees. Mr. Satterthwaite's firing up at the supposed imputation that Union men were more disloyal than secessionists shows a feeling which was quite strong with many who opposed secession until after Sumter was fired on. They thought that President Davis, Governor Ellis, and their party generally, regarded them with some degree of suspicion, or at least lacking in ardor for the Southern cause. There was an early division in the convention on this line, Graham, Badger, Satterthwaite, etc., against Edwards, Ruffin, Biggs, Howard, etc. The contest for Governor between Vance and Johnston was the result of this difference of sentiment, each party, however, uniting in the avowal of hostility to the restoration of the Union and determination to fight to the b
