On reaching Wilmington I found a regiment amply making up in patriotic ardor what it lacked in military knowledge. The camp was full of this Dixie song printed on slips of paper, and everybody in the regiment was singing it.

amped near Orange Court House, and being an Episcopalian, he wore his surplice, &c. He had a very large congregation, and it is said, that after the services, many of the men were wondering amongst themselves What sort of man is that, and it was decided, after considerable speculation, that he was a Chinese, because he looked like the pictures in their geographies. * * * * [iv.] Liberty Mills, Orange county, Va., April 12, 1864. * * * I know you will regret to hear that Captain G. B. Johnston, See ante, pages 52-124. my truly good and noble friend, is dead. I can't help sympathizing with his bereaved and lovely wife, who almost idolized him.
