ighest grade in it. The resignation of his commission and his decision to fight under the flag of the South was hailed with delight by the Southern people, who felt they were securing the services of an army commander of undoubted merit. General Benjamin Huger, another distinguished officer of the army of the United States, who had also resigned, was charged with watching over Norfolk. General John Bankhead Magruder, who had acquired distinction in the Federal army but had joined his fortunes or have I any expectation or wish for it. President Davis holds that position. I have been laboring to prepare and get into the field the Virginia troops to strengthen those from other States, and the threatened commands of Johnston, Beauregard, Huger, Garnett, etc. Where I shall go I do not know, as that will depend upon President Davis.

Commanders och General Lee could reunite the left wing of his army with Huger's and Magruder's divisions on its right bank. The strategyen so pounded to pieces that Lee did not fear an advance on Huger and Magruder, because in that case the victorious Southern r Nelson's, Farm, was fought by Longstreet and A. P. Hill. Huger did not get up, and Jackson was unable to force a passage tted by portions of Jackson's, D. H.
