4; missing, 653. North Carolina losses were: killed, 173; wounded, 1,294. It will thus be seen that just a little less than a third of the killed and the wounded were from North Carolina. General Cooke was among the wounded. During the interval between the battle of Seven Pines and the battle of Fredericksburg, there were not many important military events in North Carolina. The duty of organizing new regiments still went on. The Fifty-sixth, Col. P. F. Faison; the Fifty-seventh, Col. A. C. Godwin; the Fifty-eighth, Col. J. B. Palmer; the Fifty-ninth (cavalry), Col. D. D. Ferrebee; the Sixteenth, Col. W. M. Hardy; the Sixty-first, Col. J. D. Radcliffe; the Sixty-second, Col. R. G. A. Love; the Sixty-third (cavalry), Col. J. H. McNeil; and the Sixty-fourth, Col. L. M. Allen, were all organized during this time. Major Gordon, in his article on the Organization of the North Carolina Troops, states: When the legislature, in 1861, directed General Martin to furnish clothing for th
les of Warrenton to Buckland, the horses going at full speed the whole distance. General Stuart quotes from a Northern writer, who speaks of Kilpatrick's retreat as the deplorable spectacle of the cavalry dashing hatless and panic-stricken through the ranks of the infantry. In the operations around Rappahannock Station, Hays' brigade occupied a tete-de-pont on the enemy's side of the Rappahannock. Hoke's brigade, now commanded during General Hoke's absence, from a severe wound, by Col. A. C. Godwin, was ordered to cross the river to reinforce Hays. There, on the 7th of November, these two brigades were completely surrounded by the Federal First and Second corps, and a large part of them forced to surrender in spite of the efforts of Hays and of Godwin, a splendid officer, to extricate them. General Early thus speaks of this unfortunate affair: Hoke's brigade had not at this time been captured, but they were hopelessly cut off from the bridge without any means of escape and wit
l Beauregard's able direction, the battle of Drewry's Bluff on the south side of the Confederate capital. Of the four division commanders under Beauregard, three of them, Gens. Robert Ransom, Hoke and Whiting, were citizens of North Carolina. The following North Carolina troops were part of that organization: Hoke's old brigade under Col. W. G. Lewis, made up of these regiments—Sixth, Colonel Webb; Twenty-first, Lieutenant-Colonel Rankin; Fifty-fourth, Colonel Murchison; Fifty-seventh, Colonel Godwin; First North Carolina battalion, Colonel Wharton; Clingman's brigade, composed of these regiments—Eighth, Colonel Whitson; Thirty-first, Colonel Jordan; Fifty-first, Colonel McKethan; Sixty-first, Colonel Radcliffe; Ransom's brigade—Twenty-fourth, Colonel Clarke; Twenty-fifth, Colonel Rutledge; Thirty-fifth, Colonel Jones; Forty-ninth, Colonel McAfee; Fifty-sixth, Colonel Faison; Martin's Brigade—Seventeenth, Lieutenant-Colonel Lamb; Forty-second, Colonel Brown; Sixty-sixth, Colonel Mo
Carolina troops that followed Early up and down the valley, and shared in all the hardships of a campaign that had its full share of successes and reverses, were as follows: The Thirty-second, Fifty-third, Forty-third, Forty-fifth regiments and Second battalion, of Gen. Bryan Grimes' brigade; the First, Second, Third, Fourth, Fourteenth and Twenty-third regiments and First battalion,of Gen. R. D. Johnston's brigade; the Sixth, Twenty-first, Fifty-fourth, and Fifty-seventh regiments, of Gen. A. C. Godwin's brigade (General Lewis', commanded, after his wounding, by Godwin). Gen. Robert Ransom was sent to command the cavalry in the valley. The Sixtieth North Carolina cavalry was in Wharton's command. Early's corps was engaged in skirmishes at Lynchburg and Martinsburg, demonstrated against Harper's Ferry, and on the 9th of June fought the battle of Monocacy. At Monocacy the Federals were commanded by Gen. Lew Wallace, since famous as the author of Ben Hur. General Rodes' division,

Godwin, though a native of Norfolk county, Va., was associated throughout the war with the troops of North Caroli of both officers and men of the Fifty-seventh, Colonel Godwin commanding, in their charge on a superior forceade, was mortally wounded, and was succeeded by Colonel Godwin, who retained command during the retreat. He wsailed by overwhelming numbers. Hays gave way, and Godwin soon found himself cut off from the bridge and competely surrounded. General Early reported that Colonel Godwin continued to struggle, forming successive lines mixed up with his men, some one cried out that Colonel Godwin's order was for them to surrender, and he immedts, said Early, were learned from Captain Adams, of Godwin's staff, who managed to make his escape after being They were in accordance with the character of Colonel Godwin, and General Early asked that a special effort
Installed in office. --Major Elias Griswold was yesterday installed in office as Provost Marshal of Richmond, vice Archibald C. Godwin, who has been assigned to duty as the custodians of all the Yankee prisoners at Salisbury, N. C., at the unanimous request of the residents in that section of country. Major Godwin will have charge of a battalion in Salisbury, whose duty it is to take care of the 2,000 prisoners at that place. Major Gibbs, the former commandant of the post, has raised a Major Godwin will have charge of a battalion in Salisbury, whose duty it is to take care of the 2,000 prisoners at that place. Major Gibbs, the former commandant of the post, has raised a regiment since being there, and will take the field at an early day at the head of as brave a set of fellows as can be scared up in a day's walk. The new Provost Marshal is a lawyer of eminence in his section of country — the Eastern Shore of Maryland--a Breckinridge elector in the last Presidential contest, and for years a violent opponent of Thos. Holliday Hicks, the renegade Governor of glorious old Maryland. For many manifestations of Southern sentiment old Hicks ordered Griswold to be arr
Sword Presentation. --An elegant and serviceable sword was presented to Capt. A. C. Godwin, late Provost Marshal of Richmond, at 6 o'clock yesterday evening, by many of his personal friends. As noted elsewhere, Capt. Godwin has been assigned to another field of duty. During his continuance in the important office which he has held here, Capt. Godwin discharged its duties satisfactorily and with promptness. A native Virginian, and a lawyer of fine attainments, observation, travel, and study of human nature, had peculiarly fitted him to grapple with and instantly decide questions which would have puzzled one less experienced. To judge of the many perplexities that beset the occupant of the office in question, one has only to station himself so as to hear the multiplicity of difficult questions hourly craving solution. A consciousness that he has done his duty is the soldier's highest reward, next to the approbation of his countrymen, and we believe Capt. Godwin possesses both
