Chapter 2: the cadet. In 1841, the Hon. Samuel Hays was elected delegate, from the district to which Lewis County belo much sought by the sons of the most prominent citizens. Mr. Hays, upon consultation with judicious friends, had given the ends for their support in an application to the Honorable Mr. Hays, then in Washington.

ose along the highway at the distance of a mile. Across the northeastern end of the ridge, flow the rivulets which form, by their union, Cedar Run, and make their way thence to the Rapid Ann. General Early's brigade of Ewell's division, which held the front, was ordered to advance along the great road and develop the position of the enemy, supported by the division of Jackson, commanded by Brigadier-General Winder. The remainder of Ewell's division, consisting of the brigades of Trimble and Hays, (lately Taylor's) diverged to the right, and skirting the base of Slaughter's Mountain, by an obscure pathway, at length reached the northeast end, whence, from an open field elevated several hundred feet above the plain, they saw the whole scene of action unfolded beneath them. The battery of Lattimer, with half that of Johnson, was drawn up to this promontory, and skilfully posted, so as to cover with its fire the whole front of the Confederate right and centre. It was to the promptitude

oar of a railroad train proceeding eastward, was heard, and dispositions were made to arrest it, by placing the brigade of Hays, under Colonel Forno, across the track. The first train broke through the obstructions placed before it, and escaped. Twere seen approaching on the west of the railroad, from the direction of Warrenton. The 6th and 8th Louisiana regiments of Hays' brigade, with the 60th Georgia, were posted to receive them, masked in the edge of the pine thickets, and supported by seto their dense masses that they were hurled back before this murderous fire, and the lines re-established. The brigade of Hays from the division of Ewell, now commanded by General Lawton, was first brought to the support of Gregg. The struggle rage no more; and General Jackson ordered Early, with his brigade and the 8th Louisiana and 13th Georgia, to relieve Gregg and Hays. The enemy had by this time occupied a considerable tract of the railroad, and the woods in front of it. Early advanced u

ns have already been described in part. The brigades of Lawton and Trimble were between the Hagerstown road and the command of D. H. Hill. On the left of these, and parallel to that road, was the division of Jones. The brigades of Early and Hayes were at first detached to support the horse artillery of General Stuart, who, with a portion of his cavalry, had seized an elevated hill distant nearly a mile from the infantry, whence he proposed to threaten the extreme right of the Federalists. Hays was immediately recalled from this movement to the support of Lawton's brigade, leaving Early to guard the batteries of Stuart. This General, finding that the wide interval between him and General Jackson's left allowed the intrusion of the enemy, almost immediately removed his guns to a height somewhat farther to the rear, and nearer to his friends. From this position he rendered essential service, not only in guarding their flank, but in repulsing the onsets of the Federalists, by a spir

osed their right to a whole division of Federal infantry, which fired into their flank, aid forced them back to that embankment, capturing among their wounded the commanding Colonel and-his Adjutant. But no sooner had General Early assisted in restoring the wavering fortunes of the centre, than he was entreated for succors for the fragment of the line of Archer, which was staggering under the unequal pressure. He therefore advanced the brigade of Trimble, under Colonel Hoke, supported by Hays, upon the extreme right, relieved Archer, and driving the enemy across the railroad here also, established his men along that line. As soon as the enemy's infantry was sufficiently disengaged from the woods on their retreat, the gallant Colonel Walker opened his guns upon them again, and before they reached the shelter of the river road, inflicted a severe punishment. While these events occurred on Jackson's right, the division of Taliaferro also advanced with the greatest enthusiasm, to su
It occurred at the corner of Franklin and 17th streets. The man's came was Samuel Hays, a member of Captain Bayly's company, and he died yesterday morning, at 4 o'n sent out, with privates Coleman and Henderson, to hunt up deserters. They met Hays at the corner of 17th and Franklin streets, and knowing that he was a deserter, erked away from Henderson, who had hold of him, drew a pistol and presented it.--Hays then went into a house near the corner. At that moment Gen. Winder's police came along and learned the circumstances, and were requested to capture Hays by the Sergeant and his party, their guns not being loaded.--Coleman loaded his gun, and HayHays started on a run up 17th street. When between Marshall and Broad streets they overtook him, and he again swore that he would not go to camp, and presented his pistorday morning. The verdict of the jury Tully exonerated the soldier who shot Hays, who, they say, came to his death by several gun-shot wounds inflicted by Samuel
