Class, just graduated, he will find Harry occurring five times and Henry seven; Frank once and Francis four times; and his eyes will be regaled also with Fred and Bertie. In the Junior Class, to graduate next year, he will find only one Harry to nineteen who bear the name of Henry; but, on the other hand, he will find the brief naduate department Henry is to Harry as forty-eight to thirteen,while Frank is to Francis as twenty-three to nineteen; and there are four Freds, besides Harrie and Bertie. There are thus in these official Harvard lists nearly forty of these familiar nicknames, which are thought so preposterous at a woman's college. Of course they are not the same nicknames, because they belong to a different sex; but can it be maintained that Harrier and Bertie are essentially noble, heroic, masculine, while Georgie and Freddie are hopelessly feminine, and therefore weak? Whether the numerical proportion of pet names is greater at women's colleges is not to the purpose

ry and our battery, numbering about one hundred and twenty-five men, was no light one. For weeks it had been in a state of constant activity and excitement, enhanced towards the last with continual suspense and anxiety. It had been constantly on the move to meet threatened advances from the directions of the Tar and lower Roanoke and the Chowan and Backwater rivers. If I remember aright, during the month of March it had been sent upon two expeditions through Northampton, Hertford and Bertie counties, to repel reported raids of the enemy's cavalry from the Chowan; one, to and below Tarboro to meet a threatened advance from the lower Tar and Roanoke, and one, down the Seaboard and Roanoke railroad towards Franklin, to check a cavalry raid from the Blackwater. This last expedition, however, was in April, the command returning to camp therefrom the night of April 6th. It was under command of Colonel Whitford, who had with him not to exceed two hundred infantry (about fifty of whom we

Fortress Monroe to meet us, but, though we offered battle, no attack was made, and when we advanced, with Companies D and K of the Forty-ninth in the brigade front as skirmishers, the enemy fell back to the swamp. On the evening of the 10th we returned, via South Quay and Murfee's Station, to Weldon. On March 30th we began our march from Weldon by way of Murfreesboro and Winton, the latter place having been totally destroyed by the Federals in one of their raids, to Harrellsville, in Bertie county. At this place, Coleraine, and on the Chowan and beautiful Albemarle Sound, the month of April, 1864, was spent in the fullest enjoyment of all the delights of springtime; beautiful scenery on sound and river, and in the opening life of woods and flowers. The fish and other delicacies of this favored region touched a tender spot in the make — up of veterans, and caused us much congratulation that we had been chosen to cover this flank of the attack on and capture of Plymouth; and the

rate, the scheme seemed so feasible that a picked body of men was formed, the volunteers being ignorant of their destination and being only forwarned that they were composing a forlorn hope. As my memory serves me, these volunteers were taken from the following commands, at the rate of six or eight from each: Edgecombe Guards, Charlotte Grays, Hornet's Nest Riflemen, Orange Light Infantry, Lafayette Light Infantry, Burke Rifles, Independent Light Infantry,. Enfield Rifles, Southern Stars, Bertie Light Infantry, Chowan Light Infantry, Stuart's and Montague's Virginia Light Infantry, twelve dismounted men of Douthat's Virginia Cavalry. After this lapse of time my recollection is indistinct, and I can recall by name of these volunteers only J. B. Smith, R. M. Orrell, James T. Rose, Theodore Wardell and J. W. Hurlst, of my own company, the Lafayette; Charles Haigh, W. E. Kyle, Jarvis Lutterloh and John B. McKellar, of the Independent Company. All were killed during the war or have d

d bordering it, is of little consequence to the enemy, except in a rear attack upon Beaufort with light steamers. Batteries are erected, we understand, to cut off such an attempt.--But the possession of Hatteras by the enemy, in the absence of the most complete defence upon Neuse and Pamlico rivers and at Roanoke Island, might give him entire control of the granary of the South. Craven, Beaufort, Hyde, Tyrrell, Washington, Currituck; Camden, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Chowan, Gates, Hertford, Bertie, Martin, and even Northampton and Halifax counties, without these defences, are all laid open to his ravages. These counties have heretofore furnished Norfolk, Wilmington, Charleston, and Savannah a larger amount of corn than they obtained from all other sources, besides the large shipments they made to Baltimore, New York, and Providence. The product of surplus corn from these counties is immense. Add to this the entire loss of the whole fishing interest of these waters, amounting to sev
The enemy's gunboats in the Chowan. A gentleman who passed through Raleigh on Sunday last, who had been spending some days on the Chowan river and Albemarle Sound, in Bertie county. N. C., represents that an unusual number of gunboats were in the river and in the Sound near to its mouth. He further states that these gunboats had visited all the saw mills on the waters, and had carried off a large quantity of sawed lumber. This lumber, it is conjectured, is to be used in planking up the sides of their boats, so as to protect the men on them from the fire of our sharpshooters.
