ble. I rode with rapidity back five miles, determined to press the pursuit already so gloriously begun. Gen. Jackson had gone to the rear, but Gen. A. P. Hill was still on the ground, and formally turned over the command to me. I sent also a staff officer to Gen. Jackson to inform him that I would cheerfully carry out any instructions he would give, and proceeded immediately to the front, which I reached at 10 P. M. I found, upon reaching it, A. P. Hill's division in front, under Heth, with Lane's, McGowan's, Archer's and Heth's brigades on the right of the road, within half a mile of Chancellorsville, near the apex of the ridge, and Pender's and Thomas' on the left.

The fact, however, that the attack was made, and at night, made me apprehensive of a repetition of it, and necessitated throwing back the right wing so as to meet it. I was also informed that there was much confusion on the right, owing to

en at last it was made, the attacking column consisted of Pickett's and Heth's divisions, the latter under Pettigrew, (Heth having been wounded two days before). Behind Pickett's right marched Wilcox's brigade, and Pettigrew's support consisted of Lane's and Scales', brigadiers under General Trimble.

ned by them. Colonel Taylor gives General Rodes' explanation of his failure to advance as follows: General Rodes, who was on General Early's right, states in his report that, after he had conferred with General Early on his left and General Lane on his right, and arranged to attack in concert, he proceeded at once to make the necessary preparations; but, as he had to draw his troops out of town by the flank, change the direction of the line of battle, and then traverse a distance of tsons given in his report. Before beginning my advance I had sent a staff officer to the division of the Third corps on my right, which proved to be General Pender's, to find out what they were to do. Hle reported the division under command of General Lane (who succeeded Pender, wounded), and who sent word back that the only order he had received from General Pender was to attack if a favorable opportunity presented.

amount of their subscription by check, post-office money-order, or in registered letter. We beg immediate attention to this matter, as we cannot send our January number to any who shall have failed to comply with our terms, which are $3 per annum, cash in advance. the finances of the Society, our friends will be glad to learn, are in a much more satisfactory condition than they were several months ago. If our receipts for the current year are as large as they have been the past year (and we have every reason to believe they will be much larger) we can easily meet all of our obligations, and have money in the treasury. But we still desire to enroll additional life members, and to secure a list of new subscribers in every section. We beg our friends to help us. Want of space compels us to leave out of this number General Lane's report of Gettysburg, a letter from Colonel J. B. Walton, Chief of Artillery of Longstreet's Corps, and other papers which we are obliged to put off.
