New version of the Psalms of David. It surpasses even Sternhold and Hopkins in uncouthness, and as a monument of bad taste has furnished an easy target for the ridicule of subsequent and less devout generations. It is unfair, however, to take The Bay Psalm Book as an index to the poetic taste of its period, or its subsequent popularity as indicating anything more than its usefulness. It was a makeshift, and they knew it was a poor one; an edition revised and refined by John Dunster and Richard Lyon followed in 1647. If these were refined, then, as Timothy Dwight remarks, a modem reader would almost instinctively ask, What were they before? We still possess in its original crudity the epic of New England puritanism, The day of doom; or, a poetical description of the great and last judgment. This was the masterpiece of the Rev. Michael Wigglesworth (1631-1705), who was born in England, but emigrated to America, and graduated from Harvard at the age of twenty. He was a physician

s division. Early in the morning he started his baggage trains to Jenny Lind, thence to cross the mountain. Blunt sent Cloud with cavalry, 40 wagons loaded with infantry, and 6 pieces of artillery, on Cabell's trail, and struck him at the foot of Backbone mountain, while the train was not yet across, on September 1st. But the Confederates, having taken a position which had the enemy close under fire while unseen themselves, fired into the Federal advance guard and killed the commander, Captain Lyon, and 20, of his men. The enemy in force advanced against the strong position held by Cabell, but after a three hours engagement was repulsed with considerable loss. The Confederate loss was 5 killed and 12 wounded. The Confederate infantry regiment and some of the mounted men refused to stand fire, and retreated into the ravines and behind the rocks. But the train was protected, and the brigade that crossed the mountain southward to the valley of the Ouachita numbered about 1,500. T
ettled in Mississippi, married, and upon the overthrow of the carpet-bag government in that State was elected representative in Congress. The Sixth Arkansas infantry regiment was organized at Little Rock in June, 1861, by the election of Capt. Richard Lyon, of Company H, colonel; A. T. Hawthorn, lieutenant-colonel; D. L. Kilgore, captain Company G, major. C. A. Bridewell was appointed adjutant and John F. Ritchie, quartermaster. Company A, of Little Rock, Capt. G. N. Peay, First Lieut. J. Erren county, Ky., where it spent the winter of 1861. While camped there the Sixth Arkansas regiment smelled its first powder, and that deep affection for Terry's Texas Rangers and Swett's Mississippi battery was formed, which lasts until now. Colonel Lyon was killed October 10, 1861, by his horse falling over a precipice with him, while superintending the crossing of his regiment over the Tennessee river. Lieut.-Col. A. T. Hawthorn became colonel, Capt. Gordon N. Peay, of Company A, lieutenant-
ough a Northerner by birth, he was all Southern in sentiment. There were many others like him in the South. When Arkansas was about to secede from the Union, he raised a company for Confederate service and was elected its captain May 25, 1861, receiving his commission from the Confederate government on June 14th of the same year. This company was attached to the First Arkansas mounted rifles under Col. T. J. Churchill, and shared in the battle of Wilson's Creek, in which the Union general, Lyon, was defeated and slain. This regiment was engaged in many skirmishes in Missouri and Arkansas until ordered to the east side of the Mississippi ,in the spring of 1862, when the army of Van Dorn was brought over to reinforce the Confederate army near Corinth. On the 14th of April, 1862, Captain Reynolds was promoted to major, and on May 1st, to lieutenant-colonel of his regiment. This command was part of the army under Kirby Smith in east Tennessee and Kentucky in 1862, and with Bragg unt
From Kentucky. Gen. Anderson's Successor — who is he?--Accidental Death of Col. Lyon--Ogilvie Byren Young — Skirmish near Green River — Defiant Attitude of the Lincolnite — News from the ine, and, especially at this time, much to be regretted accident, resulting in the death of Colonel Richard Lyon, of the Sixth Arkansas Regiment, occurred last Friday morning. Colonel Lyon had been sentColonel Lyon had been sent to Tennessee river for the purpose of superintending some work to be accomplished there, and in the exercise of his duties met with his death by a mere mishap. In company with another gentleman he pk several miles from Paris in the direction of the river; both mistook the road, however, and Colonel Lyon being in advance, rode over a bluff some fifty feet in height, breaking his leg and neck by the fall. Col. Lyon was, I understand, a native of Virginia, but for a number of years has resided in Camden, Arkansas, where he leaves a wife and two daughters. He served with distinction in the F
king misrepresentations in regard to our army, etc. Maj. Shall has called out the militia of Randolph, Greene, Lawrence, Jackson, Independence, and Izzard counties. The Camden Herald, of the 25th, says: The body of the late Col. Richard Lyon arrived in our city yesterday, and was escorted to his late residence by the committee appointed for that purpose, and a very large concourse of our citizens, headed by our military band, with muffled drums. The remains came in charge of Lieut. A. J. Griggs, and after a delay of a few moments proceeded on to El Dorado, the former residence of Col. Lyon, for interment in the family burying ground. The Van Buren Press has the following interesting information respecting the steam cotton mill now in full operation in that place: The mill has two sets of wool cards, which can card 800 pounds per day; 1808 spindles, which can turn out 500 pounds of cotton yarn per day. They have no looms except for making seamless sacks. They
