re my awaking in case of any one's attempting to steal my horse, a precaution which I learned the night before, an officer informing me that some one had stolen his horse from his side whilst he was asleep. I slept for several hours, and when I awoke, the whole town was full of soldiers, and the army, infantry and artillery, was crossing the county bridge as rapidly as possible over into Buckingham. As we started to follow, my man, with his eye ever on the commissary, informed me that Major Scott was issuing rations at the railroad depot, and that we had better go by and see what we could get. It was true the Major was dealing out hurriedly, and I suspect, without requisition in duplicate, the little that was left, and, at my request, delivered with his own hands a side of middling meat to my man, and we passed on. As we reached the river, there was halted on this side, and out of the road so as not to interfere with the passage of the troops, the Yankee prisoners who had been

on as Colonel of the First Regiment of Cavalry. Very respectfully, Your obedient servant, R. E. Lee, Colonel First Cavalry. The very next morning, just at daybreak, as I was checking my trunk, coming South, at Alexandria, I brushed up against a military-looking man, with a dark moustache, but otherwise clean-shaven face, getting his trunk checked at the door of the same baggage car. This was Colonel Lee, and had I known at that moment that he had just come from the presence of General Scott, who had prevailed upon President Lincoln to tender to Colonel Lee the command of the Active Army of the United States and that he had declined it, I would have fallen at his feet and thanked God for his unparalleled devotion to duty. How few of us ever think of this! How many of us know what would have happened if he had chosen the other course. Imagine Lee at Sharpsburg with 87,000 men, and McClellan opposing him with 27,000. Picture to yourself Lee at Chancellorsville with 1

Company D, forty-fourth Virginia. [from the Richmond, Va., Dispatch, May 6, 1900.] A brief history and roster of the command. To the Editor of the Dispatch: I herewith enclose roster of Company D, 44th Virginia Infantry, Colonel W. C. Scott, of Powhatan county, for publication in your Confederate column. I think it will be of interest at least to the surviving members of the regiment. This company was mustered into the service of the Confederate States on the 9th of June, 1861, as from Louisa. The men, in fact, were about in equal numbers from Louisa, Goochland, Hanover and Fluvanna. After drilling at Camp Lee a few weeks, it was ordered to reinforce General Garnett at Rich Mountain, W. Va. It arrived just in time to witness his defeat and death. It then fell back to a strong position, where the Staunton and Parkersburg turnpike crosses the Greenbrier river. Colonel Edward Johnson, of the 12th Georgia, and others, under command of General Henry R. Jackson, arriv

nd his General Gwynn at Norfolk, I should feel like shouting to-night. I am satisfied that General Scott will make no attack on Virginia. May 10—Would to God that I could infuse some of my restlrong anticipations of an attack on Virginia in the next ten days. This we think is one reason of Scott's concentration of troops at Washington. The points of attack will be Harper's Ferry or Norfolkmission sent to Savannah. He ranks as Captain. May 15.—I am more and more satisfied that old Scott is afraid to attack us and is looking for an attack on Washington. Frank Bartow leaves to-morroanassas I feel assured it will be estimated as one of the decisive battles of the world. Either Scott will concentrate an army of 100,000 men and try the issue again or the war will be virtually clohe was to raise over the capitol here. Russell, the correspondent of the London Times, was with Scott's army as a looker on. The crowds from Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama coming in to look aft
