l, published separately, which is one of the series, and may add that the whole forms an important chapter in the history of the war. Catalogue of the choice and extensive Law and Miscellaneous library of the late Hon. William Green, Ll. D.--comprising nearly 10,000 volumes in the several departments of Literature. Compiled by R. A. Brock, Esq., Secretary Virginia Historical Society. This is a book of 210 pages, very skilfully compiled by Mr. Brock, and beautifully printed by Mr. W. Ellis Jones, and is of itself a valuable addition to any library, as showing the books which a man of ability and untiring research, collected in the course of a long life. But the library itself [which is to be sold at auction, January 18th, 1881, by John E. Laughton, Jr., Richmond, Va.,] is a rare collection of valuable books, whose value is greatly increased by the Manuscript Notes of Mr. Green, who was unquestionably one of the most profound jurists, one of the best read lawyers, and one of t

hing, and at hearing General Ewell ask one day: What is the use of General Jackson's going to church? He sleeps all of the time. One day a visitor alluded to Pope's orders, and said: Well, General, here is a new candidate for your favor. Yes, and by God's blessing he shall receive my attention, was the quiet reply. A. P. Hill's splendid Light division had been sent up to join us, and on the 2d of August there was a sharp cavalry fight in the streets of Orange Courthouse, between Colonel W. E. Jones and a strong reconnoitering force which Pope had sent across the Rapidan. Learning that Pope's line was considerably extended, Jackson determined to strike his centre at Culpeper Courthouse before he could concentrate his whole force. Accordingly, we broke camp on the afternoon of August 7th, it being Jackson's purpose to reach Culpeper Courthouse very early on the morning of the 9th. But by some misconception of orders A. P. Hill only crossed the Rapidan on the 9th, and Jackson th

Brock, Corresponding Secretary and Librarian of the Society. Vol. 1. [Seal of the Society.] Richmond, Va. Published by the Society. Mdccclxxxii. Proceedings of the Virginia Historical Society, with the address of Wm. Wirt Henry on the early settlement of Virginia. February 24, 1882. We have just received the above from the Secretary, R. A. Brock, Esq., and have only space now to congratulate the Society on preserving this valuable material, on the skilful editing which Mr. Brock has done, and on the tasteful and beautiful manner in which the printer (W. Ellis Jones, Richmond), has done his work. We will hereafter show the historic value of the Spottswood Letters, and give some specimens of the able and conclusive manner in which Mr. Henry has vindicated the truth of early Virginia history.

62, and during the winter elected Lieutenant-Colonel James R. Herbert to command it. It served in the Valley under General W. E. Jones, but no attempt was made, that I am aware of, to consolidate the Maryland commands. The army moved northward in mass of his forces, to go to meet him. This left an entirely inadequate force to oppose Crook, who defeated it, under W. E. Jones and Jenkins, at Cloyd's Mountain, and subsequently pushed on to Dublin and New River bridge. After burning the bridge he learns that Sigel is disposed of, orders Breckinridge to Hanover Junction, and leaves the defence of the Valley to W. E. Jones, with some 5,000 or 6,000 men scraped together from every part of it. The result proved that the withdrawal of Breckinnt himself from the lower Shenandoah Valley.

I retained it, and commanded the Maryland Line, as a separate organization, during the remainder of operations in the Valley, during the Seven Days battles around Richmond, and until August 12th, when the First regiment was disbanded—its numbers having been greatly reduced. The Second regiment was organized in the fall of 1862, and during the winter elected Lieutenant-Colonel James R. Herbert to command it. It served in the Valley under General W. E. Jones, but no attempt was made, that I am aware of, to consolidate the Maryland commands. The army moved northward in June, 1863. I was then member of a military court in Richmond, and the Secretary of War gave me a commission on June 22, 1863, of Colonel First regiment Maryland Line, with orders to report at once to Major-General I R. Trimble, of Ewell's corps, with orders to them to put me in command of the Maryland troops serving with them. With the commission and orders, he issued

eral Lee had ordered Breckinridge with the mass of his forces, to go to meet him. This left an entirely inadequate force to oppose Crook, who defeated it, under W. E. Jones and Jenkins, at Cloyd's Mountain, and subsequently pushed on to Dublin and New River bridge. After burning the bridge and doing some slight damage to the railry Grant's overwhelming numbers, as soon as he learns that Sigel is disposed of, orders Breckinridge to Hanover Junction, and leaves the defence of the Valley to W. E. Jones, with some 5,000 or 6,000 men scraped together from every part of it. The result proved that the withdrawal of Breckinridge was unfortunate, but the necessity wm the west, and moved towards the same point himself from the lower Shenandoah Valley.

Vol. III. New series. Dinwiddie Papers. Vol. I. 1751-1755. Edited by R. A. Brock, Correspondent Secretary, and published by the Virginia Historical Society. This book (for a copy of which we are indebted to the editor) is a credit to all concerned. The printer (W. Ellis Jones) and the binders (J. W. Randolph & English) have done their work admirably, while Mr. Brock displays his usual taste and historic research in his introduction and in his valuable notes on the text. It is needless to add that a collection of letters and papers concerning events which transpired during the important and stirring period of colonial history from 1751 to 1755 cannot fail to be of deep interest and permanent historic value, and as these papers are published for the first ti
