ness of our soldiers to meet the enemy — improved health of the camp, &c. [correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Camp Near Centreville, Oct. 29, 1861. As your paper is widely circulated hereabouts, and as I have not yet seen our brigade (the 7th) and regiment (the 15th Alabama) mentioned by your valuable correspondent #x34;Bohemian," I will hereby introduce both our brigade and regiment to the general reader. We are stationed at present to the right of Centreville, in Johnson's Division, impatiently awaiting the tardy advance of an inflated and boastful enemy, whose self-conceit is only equaled by his superlative cowardice — at least his actions justify that conclusion. But we will discard theory and deal with facts. We are here, prepared to meet and repel the enemy, and I firmly believe I but express the entire sentiment of our brigade, in asserting that we are, each and all, eager for the contest. In this connection, I will relate an incident of recent
violent assault upon his wife, but the latter failed to appear in consequence of the death of a child and the investigation was postponed. John Moore, charged with beating his wife Bridget on sundry occasions, desired a further continuance of his case to procure testimony on his behalf, and the request was granted accordingly. Willie Dodson; a fatherless boy, arrested or breaking a window of the Jewish Synagogue with a rook, was liberated with an admonition as to the consequences of a second offence. Harwood Johnson and Thomas McMillen, charged with drunkenness, were transferred to the care of an army officer, who will give him a chance to distinguish themselves in active service. An old offender named Wm. Conly, whose copious libations have proved the blight of his existence, was committed to jail in default of security to keep the peace. A fine of $10 was imposed upon John O' Brien for keeping his barroom open after 10 o'clock on the night of October 30th.
