of it. Before I close this letter, already too long, permit me to call attention to the noble bearing of Capt. John S. Taylor. C. S. Navy, of Norfolk, who, not wishing to be idle, asked for duty, and was assigned some three weeks ago to Col S. D. Lee's staff.--This gallant gentleman I have seen in several fights, and he seemed generally to seek the hottest places. Col. Lee, who seems, himself, fearless as one need be, several times cautioned Capt. T. about exposing himself, but to no purCol. Lee, who seems, himself, fearless as one need be, several times cautioned Capt. T. about exposing himself, but to no purpose. On Wednesday, as we were leaving the field, and while I stood near him, he was shot in the neck, and fell speechless from his horse. He was put upon a caisson, and brought off the field. He lived only five or six hours, but was never sensible. Thus died as brave a man as any I ever saw upon any battle-field. He really seemed not to know what danger was. A daguerreotype of a sweet babe, which I took from his pocket, spoke to my heart in words more touching than poetry. God bless that

-Why he did not say 100,000, we are left to conjecture. Other writers represent the wounded of Gen. Lee's army as having all fallen into the hands of McClellan. These monstrous lies cannot impos no use made of the victory? Why has not McClellan crossed the river and destroyed the army of Gen. Lee? Why has the latter been allowed to refresh and recruit at his leisure? The truth is this's rout would have been irremediable. But they were not in place, and the consequence was that Gen. Lee could not follow up his victory. He, however, remained on the field of battle all day Thursdayused a flag of truce from McClellan, which came with a request to be allowed to bury his dead. Gen. Lee had ample time to remove his wounded, and he did remove them all, with the exception of a few wst description. The Yankees claim to have taken 2,000 prisoners. If so, where are they? General Lee's whole loss, we hear, did not reach six thousand, killed, wounded, and missing. What the Ya

Lee, of South Carolina commander of an artillery battalion, has been ordered to Vicksburg and promoted to a Brigadier; and Lieutenant-Colonel E P. Alexander, late on Gen. Lee's staff, has been put in command of this battalion While the battalion regrets the transfer of Col. (now General) Lee to an other command, yet we think he has been sent to the right place.
