. Tasker have again visited our office — this time spending two weeks in a careful examination of our records; and two accomplished copyists have been at work for a month making for the War Department copies of important official documents which it needs to complete its files. These gentlemen were hard at work during the whole time they were with us, and were more than ever impressed with the extent and value of our collection. On the other hand, we have received from General Townsend, Colonel Scott, General Wright, Mr. Tasker, and, in fact, every one connected with the War Records office, every courtesy and facility which we could desire. We repeat again that our friends who have valuable documents ought to send them on at once. If you are not willing to give them, then by all means lend them to us, that copies may be made both for the Society and for the War Records office. We are hearing continually of the destruction (by fire and other causes) of valuable material which the

tirely from Wolf Run Shoals, a strongly fortified position on the Occoquan, I marched to that point and thence directly for Fairfax station, sending General Fitz. Lee to the right to cross by Burke station, and effect. a junction at Fairfax Courthouse, or farther on, according to circumstances. Fairfax station had been evacuated the previous day, but near this point General Hampton's advance regiment had a spirited encounter with and chase after a detachment of Federal cavalry, denominated Scott's nine hundred, killing, wounding and capturing the greater portion, among them several officers; also horses, arms and equipments. The First North Carolina cavalry lost its Major in the first onset--Major Whittaker--an officer of distinction and great value to us. Reaching Fairfax Courthouse, a communication was received from Brigadier-General Fitz. Lee at Annandale. At these two points there were evidences of very recent occupation; but the information was conclusive that the enemy ha

Fifth, following, without knowing it, Napier's precept of the art of war, he was always in front, making personal observations and sending back orders for moving his troops, while his keen eye watched the whole fight and guided him to the weak spot. As Scott said of Wellington-- Greeting the mandate which sent out Their bravest and their best to dare A fate their leader shunned to share. He his country's sword and shield Still in the battle front revealed, And where danger fiercest swept the field, There came like a beam of light. This practice brought him into many personal conflicts; and General Dick Taylor has well said: I doubt if any commander, since the days of lion-hearted Richard, has killed as many enemies with his own hand as Fo

Operations in the Trans-Mississippi Department in June, 1868. [continued from September number.] The following report ought to have been published just after the letter of General E. Kirby Smith in our September number, and the endorsements which follow that letter were originally on this report. But we, unfortunately, had not at the time a copy of it, and are now indebted to the courtesy of Colonel Scott, of the Archive Bureau at Washington, for this report and the explanatory letter which follows. Report of General R. Taylor. District West Louisiana, Richmond, 8th June, 1863. Brigadier-General W. R. Boggs, Chief of Staff: General — I have the honor to report the events of the past few days.

h has Early's sincere sympathy, being in a similar situation in Sedgwick's front at Fredericksburg — let us follow Jackson. Turning to the left upon the Plank road, near Aldrich's, he moved rapidly diagonally across Hooker's line of battle, screened from view by the forest and by Fitzhugh Lee's cavalry, which had been ordered to mask the movement, as well as to precede it. Birney of Sickles' corps, who with his division was wedged in between Howard's left and Slocum's right, on the crest of Scott's run as early as 8 A. M., reported to Sickles that a continuous column of infantry, trains and ambulances was passing his front towards the right. He ordered Clark's battery to go forward to a commanding eminence and fire into the column. At 12 M. Sickles ordered him to move forward, supported by Whipple's division and Barlow's brigade from Howard, pierce the column and gain the road they were moving over. This movement was reported to Hooker; he thought the Confederate army was in full
