uford, with his division, crossed the Rappahannock River at Rappahannock Station, and with great gallantry pushed Stuart's cavalry back almost to Culpepper Court-House. So sudden and unexpected to Stuart was this dash of his foe across the river, and so vigorous was the assault and pursuit, that he and his staff came very near being captured at his Headquarters, on an eminence a short distance from Brandy Station. They were about to dine at a table sumptuously furnished by the family of Henry Miller, the owner of the house, when the near presence of their foe was announced. The daring leader and his followers instantly decamped, and left the dinner to be enjoyed by the Union officers. Buford pursued Stuart's Headquarters near Brandy Station. this is a view of the place, from the shaded lane in front, as it appeared when the writer visited and sketched it in October, 1866, when it was occupied by W. A. Stewart. The house was in a shattered condition, and bore marks of the batt
lch, with three armed boats, to take possession of the battery on St. Simon's Island, and Lieut. Henry Miller, of the Mohican, with a suitable force, to take possession of the works on Jekyl Island. ng Lieutenant Commanding Watmough, with the launch and howitzer of the Mohican, in charge of Lieut. Miller, proceeded to open the interior communication between St. Simon's Sound and the Altamaha Rive. I enclose a detailed report of the taking of that battery by Lieut. Commanding Balch. Lieut. Miller, of this ship, at the same time occupied the fort on Jekyl Island, which was, it seems, a muve given a number of vessels severe trouble in getting beyond them. I enclose the report of Lieut. Miller, of the fort on Jekyl Island. As soon as the boats returned, I went on the Potomska, and omska, accompanied by the Pocahontas, with the launch and howitzer of this ship in charge of Lieut. Miller in tow, and proceeded through the inland passage toward the Altamaha River. I had heard t

Miller had had an exceptionally wide experience in Europe, having plied his trade in Hamburg, Basel, Paris, and London, and sojourned and lwas, when the revolutionary agitation arose, a pacifist, though not a Tory. Henry Miller, on the other hand, was from the beginning an aggressive agitator for the caion. Of Saur's paper about 350 issues are available, between 1739 and 1777; of Miller's Staatsbote about 900, published between 1762 and 1779; of the Philadelphische

en of the West, which had passed our batteries. They proceeded up Red river and captured the gunboat. Then an expedition was fitted out under Maj. J. L. Brent, and the men of the Thirty-ninth assisted in manning the Queen of the West and steamer Webb. Ascending the river, they met and captured, after a desperate conflict, the ironclad Indianola, with her stores and 112 prisoners. Major Brent, commanding the expedition, made honorable mention of Captain Carnes and Lieuts. H. A. Rice and Henry Miller, of the Thirty-ninth. During the siege this regiment lost 20 men killed and wounded. Brig.-Gen. John C. Vaughn, of Tennessee, commanded a brigade consisting of the Sixtieth Tennessee, Capt. J. W. Bachman; Sixty-first, Lieut.-Col. James G. Rose, and Sixty-second, Col. John A. Rowan. On May 16th, while the disastrous battle of Baker's Creek was pending, Vaughn's brigade was ordered to protect the railroad bridge over Big Black river in rear of Pemberton's line. The entire command in r
First Regiment announced the approach of that fine body of soldiers, there was a general commotion on the grounds. The regiment entered the Broad street gate, was met by a squadron of cavalry, and marched to the place of parade. We observed the following companies: Howitzer Co. H. Capt. Randolph; Grays, Co. A, Lieut. Bossieux; Co. B. Lieut. Mitchell; Co. F. Capt. Cary; Montgomery Guard, Co. C. Capt. Dooley; Blues, Lieut. Scott; Co. I. Captain Morris; Co. G, Capt. Gordon; Co. E. Rifles, Capt. Miller. The Public Guard, Lieut. Gay commanding, was also in the line, We can say unhesitatingly, that while we have seen the regiment parade in greater force, we never saw it look better than on this occasion. The men marched well, and exhibited in their general movements a proficiency showing their careful attention to the instructions of the drill-room. We heard many expressions of admiration from the visitors. When the line was drawn up, extending across the trotting ground from nort

Circuit Court. --Yesterday, before Judge Meredith, Wm. Martin, charged with breaking into the storehouse of Porter, Horner & Harris; James Baker and Thomas Wilkinson, charged with breaking and entering Henry Miller's shoe shop; and John Lipscomb and Thomas Wilkinson, charged with breaking into C. P. Word & Bro.'s store, were arraigned for trial, and remanded to the Mayor to be sent to Judge Lyons for trial.
of his paper now before me, in which one of these reporters regrets the excesses into which fanaticism has hurried the North, and does not appear to wonder at the South for becoming thoroughly alarmed, and making the most determined preparations for resistance. Really, I think if the Prince of Wale were once more to visit Richmond, a Times' reporter would not discover so much that was odious in his reception. By the bye, a very remarkable circumstance, in connection with this subject, seems to have escaped your observation. The correspondent of the "sure enough" Times.--the London Times, not its in New York.--dates from Baltimore, where he says the Prince as just arrived by way of the Chesapeake! Isn't the Thunderer's intelligence worthy of credit?. I observe that you call Mr. Miller's famous dog "Carlo." That is a misnomer. His real name was "Carb.," after the Roman Consul, I presume; for he was as stern and dignified in his demeanor as any "Roman of them a " P.
Hustings Court. --The following business was transacted before Judge Wm.. H. Lyons on Saturday last: The jury in the case of Daniel W. Lea and Robert Brannon, for unlawfully cutting Jno. Burns, were out all day, except when before the Judge for instructions. At the moment of adjournment they brought in a verdict of guilty against both parties, who were each fined $5. The Court imprisoned Lea for 30 days and Brannon for 10 days. Thos. Wilkinson and Jas. Baker, the lads who broke into Henry Miller's shoe shop, on Broad street, about 10 months since, and purloined a lot of boots and shoes, were tried for that offence, adjudged guilty, and sentenced to the Penitentiary for one year. Wilkinson was condemned to a 6 months tour in the city jail, a few days since, for petty larceny. On his last trial he was defended by M. Johnson, Baker by Lewis Randolph. The Grand Jury of this Court assembled on Saturday, but did no business worthy of special mention.
