for duty. On the 7th, near Todd's Tavern, we lost seven men. First was the generous high-souled Lieutenant Tom Edmondson, the soldiery Sergeant Pat Miles, the laughing-eyed, fun-loving Joe Baker, the quiet, brave Hiram Pendleton, killed; Sergeant Charles Dulaney, Privates Jake Schwartz and Charles Fields, wounded. On the 8th brave soldiers Rufe Williams, killed; Frank Catron and John Sanders, wounded. On the 9th, Andy Catron and Henry Jones wounded, and on the 12th, Findley Harris and William Hale, captured. On the 15th another one was lost, wounded or captured, the name being so defaced I can't tell who it was. On the 28th, E. W. Roe was killed; Corporal T. W. Colley, wounded. At Louisa Courthouse, a few days after, I am satisfied we saved the division from defeat, and later on the evening of the same day, at Trevillian's, held the key to our position until Fitz Lee could make his flank movement, which resulted in a victory over Sheridan and his cavalry corps.

On the 1st of February, 1850, Mr. Hale offered in the Senate a petition and resolutions asking that body to devise without delay some plan for the immediate, peaceful dissolution of the American Union. And Chase and Seward voted for its reception. It was New England who taught us the memorable words, amicably if we can violently if we must. There is a great rule of human conduct which he who honestly observes cannot err widely from the path of his sought duty. It is to be very scrupulous concerning the principles you select
An Old. Veteran gone. --Capt. Wm. Hale died on the 26th ult., in this place, in his 66th year. A native of Virginia, he had resided in Huntsville for about forty- five years, sustaining ever the character of an honest, energetic man and a good citizen. He was a soldier tried and true in the war of 1812; served under Jackson in the Creek Indian war, and was in its battles; was at the taking of Pensacola; fought in the battle of New Orleans, and endured all the hardships of Coffee's brigade. An acceptable Mason and a pious Christian, his life exemplified the virtues and the faith of both. For years he suffered intense agony, yet his patient resignation continued until the end, which was in peace with the world and hope in his God. He was buried with military and masonic ceremonies, --Huntsvills (Ala) Adv.
