ey resolved! An equally significant incident had occurred in Baltimore just the week before. Judge William F. Giles, judge of the district court of the United States for the district of Maryland, issued the writ of habeas corpus on May 4th to Major Morris, commanding at Fort McHenry, commanding him to produce before the court without delay the body of John George Mullen, an enlisted soldier, one of the garrison of the fort who sought his discharge on the ground of minority. Under the law of thes it was unlawful to enlist a minor under eighteen years of age in the military or naval service without the consent of his parent or guardian. Mullen alleged in his petition that he was under the lawful age and had been enlisted illegally. Major Morris neither produced the man nor made any response to the mandate of the writ; but on May 7th he addressed a letter to Judge Giles, in which he peremptorily refused to obey the writ. In this first trial of strength between law and arms, law becam

rdaybut lights the way to dusty death. Of the Field and Staff of the Battalion— Pegram, of whom I shall speak presently, was slain at Five Forks. McGRAW, thrice wounded, is gone—a superb soldier, who, enlisting as a private in the Purcell, rose through sheer force of grit and practical skill as an artillerist through every grade—corporal, sergeant, lieutenant, captain of the Purcell, major—to be Lieutenant-Colonel and Battalion-commander. Brave old Joe, with the empty sleeve! John Morris, Ordnance Officer, whose forward spirit ever lifted him, where most trade of danger ranged, was slain at Gettysburg. Hampden Chamberlayne, so long identified with the Battalion, has passed away—an officer, whose decisive vigor qualified him to conduct enterprises of the highest moment—the man who might have been our Napier, had not death claimed him in the very flower of his manhood. Of the Line Officers, I see here to-night but two of the old battery-commanders—both worthy c

occasion requires. Powder. Portsmouth, Va., May 15, 1861. It is said that Col. James Gregory Hodges, of this city, has been removed from the command of the 3d Regiment of Volunteers. This, I hear, is an unpopular move with the regiment, but so are other moves regarded as strange which have been made and adhered to in this locality. Brigadier-General Gwynn, with his staff, will visit to-day the batteries recently erected on or along Nansemond river. It seems that John Morris, the quondam valet or servantman of the late Commodore Barron, has been retained in the service of the family. He is the steward of Pendergrast, and has been permitted by the powers that be in Norfolk and hereabouts, to visit Norfolk, make his purchases, and return to the Cumberland. He was arrested in Norfolk, and upon examination produced his permits. He was consequently discharged, but given to understand by the "roving bullies" that if he repeated his visits, permit or no permit, h
