ill; Antietam. notes.--Conspicuous, not only by its gay uniform, but by its precision of drill and steady bearing under fire. General Sykes once wrote that it was the best volunteer organization he ever saw. During all its active service the Fifth was in the Division of Regulars, and fully maintained its standing and right to be there. In addition to the great Generals who had served successively as its Colonels, the regiment graduated other noted ones, Generals Kilpatrick, Davies, and Hamblin having served in its line. Kilpatrick was seriously wounded at Big Bethel while a captain in the Fifth. The regiment was recruited in New York City, and was one of the first to respond to the alarm of war. At Gaines's Mill, under command of Lieutenant-Colonel Hiram Duryea, it faced a musketry fire which cut down one-third of its men, and won praises from all who witnessed its remarkable efficiency and drill while in the thickest of that fight; it was in that battle that, after having rece

fter remaining a little while in the woods firing upon a battery which the enemy placed near the place vacated by Lamb's Rhode Island battery, an officer rode up and ordered us back, and we formed again in a field to the rear and right of the timber we had vacated, without the enemy's coming up to rifle range, although they still continued their artillery fire. We remained in this position for some time, and Colonel McKenzie of the 2d Connecticut took command of the brigade in place of General Hamblin who had been wounded. Colonel McKenzie then deployed our regiment in heavy skirmish order, and we moved back again slowly for a long distance. The enemy did not follow us closely, and we advanced again about the same distance and formed line of battle in a piece of woods. Our brigade and the New Jersey brigade were formed in two lines with the 65th New York, the 95th Pennsylvania and the 2d Connecticut in the first line, and our regiment and the Jersey brigade in the second line.

lies mouldering in the ground, but his soul goes marching on. The other bands took up the tune and the soldiers joined in the song; and such a volume of triumphant music has seldom waked the midnight echoes of any town. The next day the pursuit was halted and our brigade bivouaced in the rear of the Confederates, several miles from Appomattox Court House. It was rumored that Lee was surrendering and the brigade waited in eager anxiety for certain information. Late in the afternoon General Hamblin was seen coming towards the camp, his splendid black horse on the dead run, his hat in his hands, his cheek bloody where he had failed to escape the limb of a tree, and as soon as his voice could be heard he shouted, Lee has surrendered. And then what a tumult broke out among the troops. Cheers, shouts, laughter, hats and countless other things flung into the air. Some were too affected to cheer and stood with tears running down their faces. The excitement communicated itself to the

empt to estimate the loss in the rest of the brigade. Having subsequently re-visited the field and passed some days in its immediate vicinity, I was informed by one of the neighboring residents that the troops encountered by my battalion were Hamblin's Brigade of the 6th Corps, consisting of three regiments, of which one-half were ordered forward at each time. The information was obtained from General Hamblin himself, who further admitted that he suffered very severely and lost six colorsGeneral Hamblin himself, who further admitted that he suffered very severely and lost six colors. As I heard of but two regimental flags, I presume the others were markers' flags. Indeed, one of my men told me that he saw Lieutenant King, whose death is above-mentioned, with two markers' flags shortly before he fell. It seems scarcely possible that this battalion could have contended successfully with even a single regiment unless reduced to its own feeble dimensions. It can be explained, however, by the fact that they were thrown into some disorder by the closeness of the thicket thr

To be brought here. --The 2,500 Yankees, now encamped at the Lynchburg Fair Ground, and consisting mostly of prisoners captured by Stone wall Jackson's army, are expected in Richmond to-day. Col. G. C. Gibbs, of the 42d N. C. regiment, has had charge of them for some time. The six hundred and odd now at Salisbury, N. C., in charge of Col. Godwin, are also expected here this week. They will be sent hence down the river. Among the prisoners at Salisbury is Col. Wilcox, of the 1st Michigan regiment, captured at Manassas, the first Yankee military Governor of Alexandria, Va., a very affable and gentlemanly man; also, Lt. Hamblin, son of old Tom, the play actor, and the notorious Michael Corcoran, Colonel of the 69th New York--all captured at Manassas.
hat the present war would last as long as the American Revolution. [Cries of "Never, never."] Well, said the Governor, you'll see. Some of you say it will last through Lincoln's term of office. So it will; but Lincoln will be the next President of the Federal Government — if not by fair means, he will by foul. There will be a dispute in regard to the electoral vote, and Lincoln will step into office again by usurpation. Lincoln, a short time since, in the course of a conversation with Dr. Hamblin, said that he had been commissioned by God to restore the Union, and be meant to do it. His failure thus far had been for the want of competent Generals, not for the want of brave soldiers. Lincoln inquired of Dr. H. "what was the opinion of the Southern people in regard to the war?" The Doctor replied, they think it will last through your term of office. "Ah," said Lincoln, "do you think my term of office closes with these four years? No, sir; there will be a dispute in regard to the e
The North Carolina junior reserves at Wilmington. --The surrender of a large number of the North Carolina junior reserves in the fight at Wilmington, with little, if any, resistance, which has excited remark, is thus explained by the Wilmington Journal. It appears that it was not the boys' fault: Of the juniors ordered to Fort Fisher, some were put into the bomb-proofs and some were ordered to another point. Of these latter, something like one hundred and fifty, under command of Major Reece, were surrendered to a captain and five men, who demanded the surrender, informing the Major that he was surrounded and that resistance was useless. Lieutenant Hamblin, as we learn, refused to surrender and walked off, and some twelve men with him. The enemy had no force to stop them. They had no force to compel a surrender. It was a transparent sell, which ought not to have deceived Major Reece or anybody else; but apparently it did. No one suspects treachery, that we know of.
