killed, 60; wounded, 288; total, 348; but many were captured, though a good many are missing as stragglers, and a number of them reported missing in the infantry were not captured, but are stragglers and skulkers. Wharton's (Breckenridge's) division lost six colors, and Rodes's division captured two. Rodes's division made a very gallant charge, and he was killed conducting it. I fell back to Fisher's hill, as it was the only place where a stand could be made, and I was compelled to detach Fitz. Lee's cavalry to the Luray valley to hold the enemy's cavalry in check should it advance up that valley. The enemy's loss at Winchester was very heavy. Dr. McGuire has received a letter from a member of his family, who states that 5,800 of the enemy's wounded were brought to the hospital at Winchester, and that the total wounded was between 6,000 and 7,000, and a gentleman who passed over the field says that the number of killed was very large.

General Lee had sent Jackson with his own and Ewell's divisions to Gordonsville for the purpose of watchidays for an attack, and then marched leisurely back across the Rapidan to await the coming of General Lee. Some incidents of the battle may be given. There was in one of the regiments a Quartermastlar that I will never offer to bet again on any movement where Pope is in command on our side and Lee and Jackson on the other. On the 14th of August we had, by Jackson's orders, deeply interestinreer of seeing the backs of the enemy, and we rested undisturbed in our beautiful camps until General Lee came with the rest of the army, and we started on that brilliant campaign by which Headquarte

After his retreat, and my pursuit of him beyond Salem, General Lee, in a telegram, submitted it to my discretion whether I should make the advance on Washingtonthan my own. I may say here, as I have stated on several occasions, that it was not a part of General Lee's plan that I should make an attack on Washington, but his instructions were that I should ther I reached Sharpsburg, on my route to Washington, I received a dispatch by a messenger from General Lee, informing me that there was a scheme for releasing the prisoners at Point Lookout, by a navas to be carried out in connection with my advance on Washington, it is a little singular that General Lee gave me no information of it when he informed me of the proposed attempt at Point Lookout?

storian, and is of course mainly occupied with the blunders of his own superiors. He could hardly be expected to describe in fitting terms the splendid strategy of Lee, the no less magnificent audacity and skill of Jackson, and the courage and determination of those 60,000 Confederates who throttled the finest army on the planet, nd who has made a close study of the question. The Army of the Potomac, under General Meade, 82,000 men and 300 guns. The Army of Northern Virginia, under General Lee, 73,500 men and 190 guns. Stuart had 11,100 cavalry and 16 guns. Pleasanton had about the same number of cavalry and 27 guns. The Count of Paris is haide. In a letter from the Count of Paris (Southern Historical papers, vol. VI, page 10), from which General Doubleday seems to have quoted, the former credits General Lee with 73,500 men of all arms on July 1st, and says: If we deduct the cavalry on both sides, we can say that the Southern General fought with 62,000 or 63,000 men

hly attractions for old and young, which are unrivalled in their line, and which seem to be appreciated by a constantly increasing circle of readers. General Fitzhugh Lee is diligently at work on a History of the army of Northern Virginia, A gallant and able soldier, who was an active participant in well nigh every battle that army ever fought, General Lee wields a facile pen, and could not fail to give us a book of deep interest. But those who have read his exceedingly able and pains-taking papers on Gettysburg and Chancellorsville will expect from General Lee a book of real historic value. And they will not be disappointed. We have received GGeneral Lee a book of real historic value. And they will not be disappointed. We have received General Jacob D. Cox's account of Second Bull Run, as connected with the Fitz John Porter case, and propose to give it a careful study and a candid review; but we shall be greatly mistaken if this defence of the court martial that convicted Porter does not confirm us in our opinion that they were guilty of a great outrage on an able

eet this, Johnston had, by the official report of May 21, 53,688 men at Richmond. He called in Branch's and Anderson's brigades from Gordonsville and Fredericksburg, and Huger's three brigades from Petersburg. General Webb absurdly estimates Branch's and Anderson's brigades at 12,000 (p. 86). They actually numbered possibly as many as 5,500. (See Branch's order, Southern Historical papers, vol. VIII, page 103, which shows his strength did not exceed 3,000, and Taylor's Four Years with General Lee, page 50, where Anderson's strength is given at from 2,000 to 2,300 in the seven days battles.) Huger's brigades may have numbered 6,000 at this time. Thus the Confederates were able to concentrate about 65,000 men to oppose the 150,000 which were about to unite against them. It would be hard to find a finer illustration of the adage, that fortune favors the brave than occurred at this juncture.

his brigade upon Colonel Walker, of the Thirteenth Virginia, and General Ewell separated us from it, making the Maryland line again a distinct command, under Colonel Johnson. Before the battle he had ordered Captain Brown to report to Brigadier-General Fitz. Lee, in order to give them a chance for service, so for seven days the command only consisted of the First Maryland and the Baltimore Light Artillery. During the morning of Saturday, June 28th, Jackson moved off down the left bank of thsed the enemy slowly back within sight of Westover Church, where we rested. The next morning he had entrenched the hills around Westover, covered them with artillery and made an abattis half a mile deep in front of him, by felling trees. General Lee however did not purpose to push him further, and in a day or two we all marched toward Richmond in the most oppressive heat we had ever experienced. The miasma from the swamps, and the stench of the battle field were beginning to tell on men

priate all his glory, but we hold dear every part of him that nobody else wants. And there was Lee, the calm, faithful, far-seeing, dauntless Lee. As a soldier and engineer he penetrated the MexicLee. As a soldier and engineer he penetrated the Mexican pedrigal and discovered a route by which the army must be led. To him more than to anybody else must be ascribed the capture of the city of Mexico. We do not wish to wholly appropriate the glory of Lee but will willingly share it with those who have an equal right to it, and we would rather they should claim some share of the grand conduct of Lee at Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, the WiLee at Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, the Wilderness, and everywhere that soldiers met soldiers against mighty odds.

GeGeneral Lee's lecture admirably combines a most valuable historic discussion of that great battle, with a narrative that sparkles with good hits and well-told anecdotes, and possesses rare interest, not only for the old soldier, but for the general public as well. A rare treat is in store for those who shall hear him. And we anticipate a delightful season in mingling with old comrades and meeting new friends. F. D.
