proar among the elements, my slumbers were disturbed by frightful dreams about Garnett. Twice during the night I dreamed that he was dead and in a state of corruptio do so. In the morning, when we waked, I found that Metta also had dreamed of Garnett's death. I am not superstitious, but I can't help feeling more anxious than uout. I would like to be at home now, if the journey were not such a hard one. Garnett and Mrs. Elzey are both there, and Mary Day is constantly expected. I have not seen Garnett for nearly three years. He has resigned his position on Gen. Gardiner's staff, and is going to take command of a battalion of galvanized Yankees, withnds, and Capt. Warwick knows quite well the Miss Lou Randolph in Richmond that Garnett writes so much about, and Rosalie Beirne, This lady my brother afterwards metter of introduction to me, thinking I had gone back to Washington. He and John Garnett, one of our far-off Virginia cousins, have been transferred there. Feb.

ce. I fixed Metta up beautifully, though, and she was very much admired. Her hair that she lost last fall, from typhoid fever, has grown out curly, and her head is frizzled beautifully all over, without the bother of irons and curl-papers. Metta says she never saw more elegant dressing than at Miss Long's wedding, which is a great credit to the taste and ingenuity of our Southern girls in patching up pretty things out of all sorts of odds and ends. Capt. Tennille, an acquaintance of Garnett's, dined here, and five of Cousin Bolling's patients called in the afternoon. One of them, Capt. Guy, had had a curious experience with a minie ball that knocked out one tooth and passed out at the back of his neck without killing him. I laughed and told him he was certainly born to be hanged. Another poor fellow, with a dreadfully ugly face, had six battle scars to make him interesting. A report has come that the Yankees have taken Selma, and a raid is advancing towards Eufaula, so t

l at heart, on account of the boys. Fred and Garnett are good Confederates, but too considerate ofh, while all the rest of us are redhot Rebs. Garnett is the coolest head in the family, and Henry mself provided with a horse and full outfit. Garnett said he had better quit medicine and go to hon old army horse as his sole stock in trade. Garnett has not even that much. The Yankees got his em something so good to remember him by. Poor Garnett is suffering very much from his arm. He is coation itself will be better than submission. Garnett says that if it comes to the worst, he can tug to-morrow to stay at our house, and will be Garnett's guest till he can get money to take him bacit. I went to walk in the afternoon and met John Garnett just from Albany, and he says the Yankees agoing out to return calls with Mary Day, but Garnett told me he had invited the Elzeys to dinner, was persuaded to consent to the slaughter and Garnett took advantage of the occasion to feast his f

Garnett, Capt. Semmes, and the Elzeys all advise agaiother, to get himself in hand by suppertime. Garnett came straggling in just before we got up from anyway, in wanting to cuss out the Yankees. Garnett and Capt. Hudson pretend to be on the stool oexactly what did happen. The boys (Henry and Garnett) wouldn't stay to hear, and we are all afraiey. Col.

Garnett made us go and return by back streets in order to avoid, a a children's party in the afternoon, and came home sick. Garnett spent the day at a barbecue, with the usual result, so betad to deal with, and has been heard to damn them soundly. Garnett says he is a real good fellow, and my heart has softened sd by him thereletters to the Elzeys and other friends. Garnett brought Taz Anderson and Dr. McMillan home to dinner.

ond or Washington. Permit me then, sir, to read a brief sketch of the life of him whose portrait I entrust to your Honor's keeping. The Hon. James Mercer Garnett, of Elmwood, Essex county, Va., was born June 8th, 1770, the second child and oldest son of ten children. His father, Muscoe Garnett, of Essex county, was the son of James Garnett and Elizabeth Muscoe, his second wife, the daughter of Captain Salvator Muscoe, and was the only child of that marriage. He was the grandson of John Garnett, of Gloucester county, supposed to be first of the family that came from England to this country, although this is not certain, as the family records do not trace his ancestry further back. Muscoe Garnett, as his father before him, was a large landed proprietor, and built Elmwood before the Revolutionary War. During that war he was a member of the Committee of Safety for Essex County, which regulated the military affairs of the county. He, his father, and his son were vestrymen of Vawte

ve received various and numerous reports of the movements of the troops of General Garnett's command since I last wrote you, and I now merely write to give a true and accurate statement of the retreat and death of General Garnett--a statement which I defy any one to question, and to which those high in authority will willingly surel Hill, when, on Thursday evening, 11th July, we received an order from General Garnett to prepare provisions for a two days march shortly after which we were dirall Battalion under Colonel Hansborough, all under the immediate charge of General Garnett, was forced to take the only route left us. We had proceeded on the road minder of the army. Immediately after this battle, and in a half mile of it, Gen. Garnett in person was on the river bank, and halted the Regiment, and detached the Sy did, killing several as they retreated. The enemy immediately fired, when Gen. Garnett fell, shot through the breast, killing him instantly. He fell on Lieut. De
by Brig-Gen. Stuart, and in the presence of the Generals and their staff. Everything went off very well, and to the satisfaction of every one. Gen. Stuart is still the commander of the outposts, and has his headquarters a short distance this side of German town. He is seen frequently in Centreville, and every day or two has a batch or Yankee prisoners to turn over to the authorities here. After the cavalry review a section of the third company of the Washington Artillery under Lieut. John Garnett, went out to practice and to test some projectiles. The firing was excellent, every shot but one going near the target, the shells exploding with great accuracy. A tree, distant about a thousand yards, was completely riddled with spherical case shot, and others fired at showed upon examination the effect of the projectiles. The faulty shot spoken of above was caused by a bad fuse, the shell exploding a few yards from the gun. Had the shot been fired at an enemy advancing in column
