name chosen by one of the first companies who went into service from this city. It owned its existence to the active exertion of Daniel Hagerty, who on the inception of hostilities, gathered together a band of choice spirits ready to peril their life in defence of our threatened rights. They have been stationed for several weeks past in the vicinity of Fredericksburg. Should the enemy conclude to land at Acquia Creek, they are the very boys to meet him and rebuke his presumption in a most effective and convincing way. The company is armed with the deadly Parrott rifled cannon, which they know how to handle. The following is a list of the officers of the Purcell Battery, viz: Captain, R. L. Walker; 1st Lieut., Dan'l. Hagerty; 2d Lieut., Wm. Pegram; 3d Lieut., Wm. Dabney; 1st Sergeant, James Allen; 2d Sergeant; Fitzhugh; 3d Sergeant; McGruder; 4th Sergeant H. Eddins; 1st Corporal, C. G. Thompson; 2d Corporal J. Furneyhough; 3d Corporal Wm. Snellings; 4th Corporal W. Morton.
Promotion. Lieutenant-Colonel William Pegram, of Richmond, of the artillery, has been promoted to the rank of brigadier-general in infantry, and placed in command of the brigade of the late General Archer.
