ne made in a sailing vessel and during the winter, was exceptionally rapid and agreeable. Journal Dec. 25. On the fourth day I was rejoiced to find myself able to read, though lying in my berth. Previously my time had passed without the relief which this at once afforded. Chancellor Kent had been kind enough to advise me to take a stock of pleasant books, and I had provided myself with some on the morning of sailing. I read the fourth and fifth parts of Lockhart's Life of Scott, James's novel of Attila, Cooper's England, and the Life of Burr, while stretched in my berth; and never were books a greater luxury: they were friends and companions where I was, in a degree, friendless and companionless. At the end of the first week I was able, with some ado, to appear at the dinner-table. I know no feeling which, in a small way, is keener than for a man disabled by the weakness rather than the nausea of sea-sickness, with his appetite returning upon him like a Bay of Fundy t

ve been impregnable before the art of war, and particularly the science of artillery, had introduced such great changes. Since I commenced this letter, I have passed through Loch Lomond and Loch Katrine, the pictures of which will give an added value to this sheet. I have been rowed by moonlight on this last beautiful lake,—a distance of ten miles,—while Ben Lomond towered in the distance; and, by the light of day, have visited the island of the Lady of the Lake; have seen the spot where Fitz James wound his horn, after his gallant grey had sunk exhausted to the ground; have followed his course beyond Clan-Alpine's outmost guard, as far as Coilantogle's ford. And now I am on the rock of Stirling,—one of those natural fastnesses which, in early days, were so much regarded by all soldiers. Among the adventures which I have had in the Highlands, amidst these weird hills and glassy lakes, was a Highland wedding. Let me tell you of this on my return. It was one of the richest scenes <

a big Yankee, sabre in hand. Moses being a smaller man than his antagonist, and dead game, determined to force the fighting, and he made a furious thrust inside of his adversary's guard, which caused a clinch, and a fall, then the Gael above, Fitz James below, and not only so, but the Gael had in the brief struggle secured a firm hold with his teeth on Fitz James' finger. As good luck would have it Private Bill Martin, whose horse had been also killed, came along just at this juncture, and, iFitz James' finger. As good luck would have it Private Bill Martin, whose horse had been also killed, came along just at this juncture, and, in his own expressive language, lifted the Yank off of Shaftsbury with his revolver. As no such name as Shaftsbury Moses appears on the muster-roll of the cadet company, it is proper to state that cadet J. H. Moses, while at the Citadel, on account of his scholarly style of composition, had been dubbed by his fellow-cadets Lord Shaftsbury. In this battle Sergeant G. M. Hodges' horse was killed under him, and he was shot in the side. Though wounded, he succeeded in capturing another horse, and

real attack on Richmond must be looked for from the army of General Pope. Lee's accurate interpretation. Our scouts reported at last that the transports of Burnside had sailed up the Chesapeake, and that night the troops of Longstreet left Richmond and moved northward to the Rapidan, leaving General McClellan at Harrison's landing, with the confident expectation on the part of General Lee that the northward movement of his army would lead to the withdrawal of the Federal army from the James. How accurate General Lee's interpretation of Burnside's movement was we now know, and from that time until some time after the Second Battle of Manassas he practically directed the movements of the Federal army by his own. Another instance of his wonderful capacity in penetrating the intentions of the enemy occurred at Fredericksburg before the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863. The enemy displayed a large force in our front on the Stafford side of the river, and at the same time another
