r country, I am going to fool this stupid old nigger, and play a trick off on him, which I think quite pardonable under the circumstances. Having by repeated loud knocks induced the inhospitable negro to reopen the door, he addressed him thus: Mr Madden (this was the man's name), you don't know what a good friend of yours I am, or what you are doing when you are about to treat us in this way. That gentleman there (pointing to me) is the great General Lee himself; the other one is the French amthem as they had not had for a long time, while we dried our garments before the blazing wood-fire, our present sense of comfort being enhanced by anticipations of the future raised by the savoury odours which reached us from the kitchen, where Mr Madden was superintending in person the preparation of a repast suited to the distinguished rank of his guests. Pelham was delighted at the success of his diplomatic ruse, and went on hoaxing the old negro in the same strain, till nothing could persu
report, the nineteenth was devoted to rest and preparation, moving down for bivouac near Mitchell's Ford late in the evening. During the day the order of battle, marked C, and subsequent instructions, marked B, were received from the commanding General, from which, it seemed, the enemy had escaped attack. At moonrise, on the twentieth, about four A. M., General Lee's and Robertson's brigades were moved across the Rapidan at two adjacent fords, and pushed rapidly forward — Lee's directly by Madden, in pursuit of the enemy in the direction of Kelley's and Ely's Fords, on the Rappahannock, and Robertson's, which I accompanied, via Stevensburg, (a village four miles east of Culpeper Court-House,) toward Brandy Station. Brigadier-General Fitzhugh Lee, whose written report has not been furnished, found the enemy's rear near Kelley's Ford, and, by vigorous attack, secured several prisoners and a cavalry color. One of Robertson's regiments, with the artillery of his brigade, had been, by m
. The enemy did not make a serious advance towards our position, though Chambliss, with the Thirteenth Virginia, was skirmishing all the forenoon with the enemy's infantry. About one o'clock P. M., I received a report from the pickets towards Madden's that the enemy was moving a large infantry force in that direction. Leaving Chambliss in front of the enemy where I then was, I marched the remainder of the command, Fitz Lee in advance, directly to Madden's, where we pierced the enemy's columMadden's, where we pierced the enemy's column, while marching, and scattered it, taking possession of the road and capturing a number of prisoners, which enabled us to develop their strength and designs, as we captured prisoners from three army corps: the Eleventh, (Howard's,) Twelfth, (Slocum's,) and the Fifth, (Mead's,) and soon after learned that the column had marched direct for Germana Ford. These items were telegraphed to the commanding General. Colonel J. Lucius Davis, near Beaver Dam, had been telegraphed early that day to move h

veloped with pickets; that his route from Kelly's might at once be ascertained, and that his whole cavalry force of seven regiments be thrown in his front to dispute his advance on daylight of the 29th. On the 29th, the enemy not advancing towards the position of the cavalry between Brandy and Kelly's, Stuart knew he must be going elsewhere; so leaving one regiment, the Thirteenth Virginia, in position, he moved around with the remainder to get on the road from Kelly's to Germanna, and at Madden's, the intersection of the Stephensburg and Richards' ford with the Kelly's and Germanna road, he saw long columns of infantry marching for Germanna. His advance, Fitz. Lee's brigade, charged into the column, scattered it at the point struck, and the road they were marching on was temporarily seized and held. From prisoners taken it was ascertained that two corps were on that road and one on the Ely's Ford road, all marching on Chancellorsville. He at once informed General Lee by telegrap
uding to the death of Mr. Lincoln, of which he apprised General Johnston in his first interview with the latter, on the 17th of April, 1865, he says: Mr. Lincoln was peculiarly endeared to the soldiers, and I feared that some foolish woman or man in Raleigh might say something or do something that would madden our men, and that a fate worse than that of Columbia would befall the place. This is significant, and shows conclusively: that it was the men of the Federal army who burned Columbia. Madden the same men in Raleigh, and Raleigh will suffer a like fate to that of Columbia. This is clearly the meaning of General Sherman's words. When, to gratify their Commander-in-chief, the men of the 15th Federal Corps, who generally did their work up pretty well, had wreaked vengeance all night upon the defenseless people now in their power, General Sherman, satiated at last with what he himself termed a horrible sight, The Rev.

s freedom. He came to Havana, and maintained himself by house-painting, and such other employments as his ingenuity and talents placed within his reach. He wrote several poems, which have been published in Spanish at Havana, and translated by Dr. Madden, under the title of Poems by a Slave. It is not too much to say of these poems that they will bear a comparison with most of the productions of modern Spanish literature. The style is bold, free, energetic. Some of the pieces are sportive here would I fain in contemplation gaze On Thy eternal beauty, and would make Of love one lasting canticle of praise, And every theme but Thee henceforth forsake! His best and noblest production is an ode To Cuba, written on the occasion of Dr. Madden's departure from the island, and presented to that gentleman. It was never published in Cuba, as its sentiments would have subjected the author to persecution. It breathes a lofty spirit of patriotism, and an indignant sense of the wrongs inf
