orner of Broad and Eighth streets. And the campaign against Pope has begun. We disembark at Louisa Courthouse and stay ths from the enemy in our front, who are now commanded by General Pope, who says he has been doing great things in the western, hardly one with a hat, but every man was in his place. Pope's stand. Next morning, August 9th, we resume the march, ock we hear the boom of a cannon in our front and know that Pope has made a stand. Peace and beauty all around us, death anay, and he got Stuart to reconnoitre for him. He found that Pope had been heavily reinforced; in consequence he did not renew the advance, and Pope, being so much surprised at seeing the front of a rebel, had not gotten over his daze sufficient to bacco, etc. As night comes on General Jackson finds that Pope's force has been reinforced so largely, he falls back, and e with the greater part of his command, the advance against Pope is again taken up.

s guarding his flanks as his army marched southward. General Lee's plans. Lee at once comprehended this plan, and immediately sent Longstreet with the First corps to check the front of McClellan's advance. Jackson, with the Second corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, was left in the Shenandoah Valley to remain so long as he thought prudent. With his usual boldness, Lee did not hesitate to post the two wings of his army sixty miles apart in a straight line. McClellan now occupied Pope's former position behind the Rappahannock, with fully 125,000 men—100,000 men holding the defences of Washington and 25,000 watching the Shenandoah in the vicinity of Harper's Ferry. Lee had less than 75,000 in the two corps of the Army of Northern Virginia and in his cavalry corps under Stuart, and, with this disparity of numbers, he was again to meet the great Army of the Potomac. Not satisfied with the leadership of McClellan, Lincoln placed Burnside in command at Warrenton, and he at

It seemed to me the whole heaven was full of bullets. The man up the pole dropped down with a thud. We were sure he had been killed. but the next moment he rolled down the embankment and jumped up all right. We could do nothing with the wire, so Captain Newton took us back to the company. Out from the tents were packed all of General Pope's headquarters wagons, and many others, I suppose. Several had been set on fire, which illuminated the camp in every direction. I got permission to do a little foraging on my own hook, and rode down among the burning wagons. There were many laughable scenes, as well as serious ones, that memorable night. I don't suppose time can ever efface them from my memory. As I passed in the rear of one wagon—and I ought to mention here that these wagons were all packed and ready to move out a

ure, for life, or during good behavior. Then the judges, thus elected, were commissioned by the governor. The election took place February 7, 1809. Messrs. Baker and Daniel nominated William Brockenbrough in the lower house; Messrs. Strother and Pope nominated Hugh Nelson; others were also nominated. On the second ballot Hugh Nelson was elected. There were three more ballotings, and Brockenbrough, advancing from 53 to 85, was elected by a joint vote of 97. The others voted for were Daniel S But much more praise to him is due Who looks a hundred ways with two. The judge was so nonplussed and surprised by the offender's smartness, as well as audacity, that he let him off without fining him. He was the renowned, but unfortunate, Billy Pope, orator, poet and wit. I have, too, some recollection of the members of the bar of that period. Thomas Gresham and Wm. A. Wright lived in Tappahannock; John Gaines, two Upshaws (Horace and Edwin), and Muscoe Garnett, came from the country;
