I thought I had never seen anything so bright and comfortable before. When Mrs. Palmer, the landlady, learned who Metta and I were, she fairly hugged us off our fehat the cup was made sweeter by the magic of three pair of fair hands. Then Mrs. Palmer's jar of pickles was brought out and presented with a little tableau scene sh grace, but I hadn't that excuse, and never felt so foolish in my life. Mrs. Palmer's chamber, in which Metta and I were to sleep, was a shed room of not very i to turn very cold, and the scanty supply of bedclothes the Yankees had left Mrs. Palmer was not enough to keep me warm. Then it began to rain in torrents, and presches of sleep between the wildest bursts of the storm. Early in the morning Mrs. Palmer and Jenny came in with bowls and pans to put under the leaks.

C.) with an artillery company which paid its way in cloth and thread. The regiment to which he had been attached disbanded and scattered soon after the surrender, all except himself and the adjutant. Capt. Hudson says Henry doctored the adjutant and the adjutant officered him. They attached themselves to Maj. Palmer's battalion of artillery and Henry traveled as far as Ruckersville with it. He is now ready to begin life anew with a broken-down old army horse as his sole stock in trade. Garnett has not even that much. The Yankees got his horse, and his boy Sidney, whom he left with Henry when he took to the field, disappeared — to enjoy the delights of freedom, I suppose. The Yankees began favoring Gen.

June 4, Sunday Still another batch of Yankees, and one of them proceeded to distinguish himself at once, by capturing a negro's watch. They carry out their principles by robbing impartially, without regard to race, color, or previous condition. ‘Ginny Dick has kept his watch and chain hid ever since the bluecoats put forth this act of philanthropy, and George Palmer's old Maum Betsy says that she has knowed white folks all her life, an' some mighty mean ones, but Yankees is de fust ever she seed mean enough to steal fum niggers. Everybody suspected that mischief was afoot, as soon as the Yankees began coming in such force, and they soon fulfilled expectations by going to the bank and seizing $100,000 in specie belonging to one of the Virginia banks, which the Confederate cavalrymen had restored as soon as they found it was private property.

A Pittsburg journal thus describes the scene: Hagan was now seized by the guard and taken to the "rendezvous" in the third story, where preparations were at once made for carrying the order into effect. The man, as we are informed, was stripped naked, gagged and handcuffed. A raw cowhide was procured, and a soldier named Geo. Palmer, corporal of the guard, under directions of Deputy Provost Marshal McHenry, who was present, proceeded to lay on the stripes. Hagan, comparatively powerless though he was, resisted, and McHenry, as is alleged, called on the soldiers present to hold him white the stripes were being laid on.
