is was a bitter disappointment to my command, who felt that no one was so capable of defending the Cape Fear as the brilliant officer who had given so much of his time and ability for its defence. When a few days after, a Virginia paper announced, Braxton Bragg has been ordered to Wilmington, goodbye Wilmington, to many, it seemed as prophetic as the wizard's warning to Lochiel on the eve of the battle of Culloden. I did not so regard it, but was as sanguine of success as that unfortunate Highland chieftain. The patriotic Whiting showed no feeling at being superseded, but went to work with redoubled energy to prepare for the impending attack. He visited Confederate Point repeatedly, riding over the ground with me and selecting points for batteries and covered ways, so as to keep up communication after the arrival of the enemy, between the fort and the entrenched camp which I commenced constructing at Sugar Loaf. He pointed out to me where the enemy would land on the beach beyond t

st rolls were found, and that the new one thus made out nearly corresponded with the lost history. On May 4th, the company reached Cocke's Tavern, on the old turnpike leading from Charlottesville to Staunton. On the 5th, it re-crossed the Blue Ridge at Rockfish gap, passed through Waynesboro, and bivouacked a few miles east of Staunton. On the 6th, it passed through Staunton to neighborhood of West View, and on the 7th and 8th continued its march toward Monterey, the county-seat of Highland county, reaching, on the 8th, the foot of the mountain east of the village of McDowell, which was then occupied by Federal troops under General Milroy. The infantry advanced to the top of the mountain and became hotly engaged with the enemy, who were in a strong position. Our battery was ordered forward and got within half a mile of the top, following the old Parkersburg turnpike. Here we were halted, and after some delay, it being found that it was impracticable to reach a position wher

r in 1862. The 14th Virginia Regiment was in Jenkins', afterwards McCausland's, Brigade, and did service in West Virginia, the Shenandoah Valley, and around Richmond. It was composed of three companies from Greenbrier, one from Augusta, one from Charlotte, one from Upshur, one from Rockbridge, and a large portion of two others were from this county (Captain William A. Lackey's and Alexander M. Peck's), the remainder of these two companies being from Roanoke, Pulaski, Montgomery and Highland counties. It was among the best mounted regiments in the service, and the discipline and their soldierly bearing were noticeable. James Cochran, of Augusta county, was Colonel; John A. Gibson, of Rockbridge, Lieutenant-Colonel; B. F. Eakle, of the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs, Major, and Edward S. Roe, of Orange Courthouse, Surgeon. It was one of the regiments out of four that raided Pennsylvania to enforce the order of levying a tax of several hundred thousand dollars on the cities and

rolinians. By Gen. Bradley T. Johnson. With corrections and Additions by R. D. Stewart. (An incident of the battle of Winchester, Va., that surpasses the 93d regiment's famous stand on the morning of Balaklava.—How General Robert D. Johnston repelled repeated charges of Yankee cavalry far outnumbering his attenuated brigade—as told by General Bradley T. Johnston.) At the battle of Balaklava occurred an incident which Kinglake has painted in words, and thus immortalized. The Highland brigade, the 42d, the Black Watch, the Cold Stream Guards, the Grenadiers, and the 93d, Sir Colin Campbell's old regiment, were in position which threw the 93d just along the crest of a slight rise of the ground. The Russian artillery had become annoying, and the 93d lay down just behind the crest, where they were better sheltered and concealed. A division of Russian horse was moving to the left of Sir Colin's whole line, and its head of column nearly with the British, where at once fou

, death's between us And the wrong and shame we dread.” Oh, they listened, looked, and waited, Till their hope became despair; And the sobs of low bewailing Filled the pauses of their prayer. Then up spake a Scottish maiden, With her ear unto the ground: “Dinna ye hear it?—dinna ye hear it? The pipes oa Havelock sound!” Hushed the wounded man his groaning; Hushed the wife her little ones; Alone they heard the drum-roll And the roar of Sepoy guns: But to sounds of home and childhood The Highland ear was true;— As her mother's cradle-crooning The mountain pipes she knew. Like the march of soundless music Through the vision of the seer, More of feeling than of hearing, Of the heart than of the ear, She knew the droning pibroch, She knew the Campbell's call: “Hark! hear ye no MacGregor's, The grandest oa them all!” Oh, they listened, dumb and breathless, And they caught the sound at last; Faint and far beyond the Goomtee Rose and fell the piper's blast! Then a burst of wi

ut in the scarcity of "rooms to let, " had finally got accommodation at Mrs. Stewart's small cottage; thereupon Mrs. Stewart became as one of the lions — the mouthpiece of the wonders — the oracle of the village. Opinions of us varied, as the following conversations will show. It was not Mrs. Stewart's fault that she could not supply them with definite information; for, amiable and kind- hearted though she was, she was not free from that in variable failing in country villages, especially Highland ones — the love of gossip. We easily saw how the different results of her conversations swayed her opinions, and the pleasure we found in confusing her transparent mind was quite piquant. The second morning after our arrival, the postmaster and his wife found it necessary to visit Mrs. Stewart. "Sae ye've gotten twa leddies bidin' wi' ye, Mrs. Stewart. Wha are they?" (Mrs. Stewart's mind was not made up yet, and she took care not to express herself too strongly at first.) <
