[Signed.] G. E.Pickett. Major Gen. Commanding. We regret to learn that in the earliest part of this engagement Col. Henry N.

? Those who prefer dying for their country to living in it are entitled to the enjoyment of their peculiar tastes; but that true patriotism which clings to the hearthstone shows its love for its country by living in it as long as possible. It is unable to appreciate the exquisite sensations of a bayonet through the abdomen, or a leg sawed off by a Confederate surgeon. If such a patriot saves his country in any field, it must be the cornfield; and if, when he becomes a grandfather, posterity asks whether he was in the war, he can reply with pride and satisfaction that he lived through it all, and made more out of it than Davis Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Longstreet, Beauregard, and all the rank and file put together. Happy and glorious the evening of a life so rigidly devoted to the domestic virtues!--Bear him gently, oh Posterity, to his resting place in the soil he loved so well, and bury him beneath his own dunghill — the fitting monument of his tenacious and productive qualities.
arly's division, did good service in picking up stragglers and horses, as also in preventing the escape of some armed bodies of the enemy after the fall of the place. I am also told that O'neal's partisan company was quite useful in the same way. I have thus hurriedly sketched the main facts connected with the capture of Winchester and the liberation of the Valley. It was altogether a most brilliant episode in the otherwise disastrous Pennsylvania campaign. Lieut. Gen. R. S. Ewell, by his skill, energy, and strategy, fully demonstrated his high capacity for the post to which he had then so recently been promoted; whilst Early, Rodes, and Johnson gave signal proofs of their respective fitness for commands in Jackson's old corps.--And as for the men, it will suffice to say that they were all of Ewell's corps, and had been trained in marching, fighting, and endurance under Stonewall Jackson. In my next I shall speak of the passage of the Potomac and the Gettysburg fights.
