red the prayer, United States Senator R. E. Withers made an admirable address, and Hon. J. R. Tucker introduced General Joseph E. Johnston as the life-long companion of Lee, his fellow-cadet at West Point, his sharer in the struggles, glories and disintments of the unfortunate South, and the greatest surviving General of the war. In few, but very fitting, words General Johnston acknowledged the compliment paid him, spoke with pride of the fact that he was the companion and friend of our belovg him the privilege of being present to witness and participate in this token of regard for Virginia's noblest son. General Johnston then proceeded to deposit in the box in the corner-stone various appropriate articles; and the ceremonies being over, and the benediction pronounced, the crowd dispersed with three cheers for General Johnston. The occasion was one of deep interest. We regretted that we were unable to accept a kind invitation to be present, and that our limited space admits of

By every train and every highway, the people poured into the old town, and a crowd assembled which the most careful estimates put at full 25,000.

But if General Johnston's statement is correct, this must have been the case,verely wounded in assaulting the redoubt described by General Johnston, then Colonel Bratton is entitled to the credit of itl Early would long since have corrected this error of General Johnston, and I wonder that he has not done so. But much ale is to be made for the poor estimate formed of us by General Johnston. He was not on the field, and of course had no view ccurred after the troops were ordered to retreat, and General Johnston thinks a retreat ought to be conducted without loss —ay in reply to this slur upon them, will be to employ General Johnston's own words with reference to himself in another part

When Richmond fell, he retired with Mr. Davis and the other members of his Cabinet to North Carolina by way of Danville. When, after the surrender of General Lee, it became evident that the fortunes of the Confederacy were desperate, President Davis directed him to meet General Sherman in company with General J. E. Johnston, who had solicited an interview, and to effect the best arrangement possible looking to a peaceful termination of the war. The interview took place at Durham station, North Carolina, and the result of it was the memorandum of a treaty of peace, which was signed by the opposing Generals subject to the ratification of their respective Governments. General Sherman at first declined to hold communion with General Breckinridge, lest, receiving him as a member of the civil government of t

M. on the 14th. To Baker's (late Hampton's) brigade was assigned the duty of picketing the Potomac from Falling Waters to Hedgesville. The other brigades were moved back towards Leetown — Robertson's being sent to the fords of the Shenandoah, where he already had a picket, which, under Captain Johnston, of the North Carolina cavalry, had handsomely repulsed the enemy in their advance on Ashby's gap, inflicting severe loss, with great disparity in numbers. Harper's Ferry was again in possession of the enemy, and Colonel Harman, Twelfth Virginia cavalry, had in an engagement with the enemy gained a decided success, but was himself captured by his horse falling. Upon my arrival at the Bower that afternoon (15th), I learned that a large force of the enemy's cavalry was between Sheph
