r was under orders to report in person without delay, and he insisted on an interview. He told the servant to tell the Governor that a soldier from General Stuart's command was at the door with important dispatches, and desired to see him. When this announcement was made all ceremony was at once waved, and Captain Frayser was soon ushered into the presence of the Governor. On entering the bed-chamber, Captain Frayser was most agreeably surprised to find an old friend in the person of Dr. John Mayo, a brother of Joseph Mayo, who was Mayor of Richmond for many years, in bed with Governor Letcher. Now, there was much anxiety manifested upon the part of both to hear everything connected with the raid, and nothing short of Frayser's making another raid around McClellan would satisfy them; although he had been in the saddle three days and two nights, he had it all to go over again, and the two listened with the deepest interest to every incident as related and laughed heartily as some
born in Raymond, New Hampshire, August 17, 1836, and died at his home in West Medford, on February 21, 1908. He was the second son of Joseph and Elvira (Howard) Brown, and was descended from many of the founders of New England, among whom were, on the paternal side, Rev. Stephen Bachiler, Thomas Webster, Hon. Samuel Dalton and other founders of Hampton, New Hampshire, and Hon. John Gilman, of Exeter, New Hampshire, and, on the maternal side, Gov. Thomas Hinckley, of the Plymouth Colony, Rev. John Mayo, first pastor of the Second Church of Boston, and Rev. William Walton, one of the founders of Marblehead. Born on a New Hampshire farm in the first half of the last century, he knew from experience what a life of plain living and high thinking was. His mother was ambitious that her boys should have a good education, and although she died when her son David was fourteen, her wish had been impressed on her children, three of whom went to college. After leaving the district school in
An Old Bell. --An old brass church bell, of tolerable size, bearing the words "York county, in Virginia, 1725," has been received at the Virginia Armory from York county, as a present to the State, from Dr. John Mayo.--It was cast in England and sent over as a present. A considerable opening in the side shows that it long since ceased to ring out its dulcet and peculiar harmony. Indeed, it is not now known, we suspect, even in what particular church its functions were performed. Whether it will retain its present shape,--remaining a memento of a long-gone era,--or whether it will be converted into something to help us on to that independence we are now fighting for, remains to be developed by the exigencies of the times.
e fortification on the river. It was four miles from Newbern, and mounted 18 heavy guns, two of them rifled 82-pounders. Fort Ellis, three miles from Newbern, mounted eight heavy guns. It was commanded by Capt. Edelin's Company B, First Maryland regiment. Finding that the other fortifications had fallen; Capt. E. ordered his guns to be dismounted, (having no spikes,) and they were thrown down the embankment. Fort Lane, mounting eight guns, two miles from Newbern, was blown up, Capt. Mayo losing his life by remaining to fire the magazine. he was killed by the explosion. Union Point Battery, one mile from Newbern, mounted two guns. It was manned by the Confederate Minstrels, under the command of Charles O. White, Manager. This battery fired, but twice, and then with but little effect, the enemy being out of range.--Three of the Minstrels are missing. It is thought they were taken prisoners. Their names are given as Prof. Iradella, James Wood, and Frank Heineman.
Twenty Dollars reward. --Runaway in this city, two weeks ago, my boy, Allen, he is 16 years old, slender, and rather small for his age, copper colored with nearly straight hair, small, sharp features, has rather a fine, whining voice; had on when he left a black frock coat, dark drab or lead colored pantaloons, and a military cap. He is no doubt passing for a free boy and may have left the city with soldiers, they under the belief that he was free; if so, and they should see this notice, I would take it as a great favor to inform me. I will pay the above reward for his apprehension. My address is Richmond, Va. (Mayo's warehouse) mh 12--6t* Jas. L. Scoggin.
Texas brigade. --The remains of Lieutenant Colonel Black and private Bush, of the Texas Brigade, were buried on Thursday last at Cedar Hill, New Kent county, Va., in the family burying-ground of Dr. John Mayo.--These gallant men fell whilst nobly defending the soil of Virginia from the invasion of the Hessian hordes who are now trying to over run the Old Dominion and enslave her patriotic people.
